What is spiritualism?
Each person has individual character traits and predispositions. Some are born with analytical minds, thanks to which they make remarkable scientific discoveries, others are distinguished by creativity or a great voice. There are also those among us who are endowed with extraordinary sensitivity and intuition that exceeds the general perception. Such people often possess an extraordinary ability that is inaccessible to ordinary mortals, namely the ability to make contact with the afterlife and establish communication with extraterrestrial beings. Generally such abilities are called spiritism.
Foundations of spiritism
The foundations of spiritism are considered to be the works published by Allan Kardec, who claimed to have repeatedly contacted spirits. News of the remarkable work quickly spread around the world, and writers Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Ernesto Bozzano became the first preachers of the new doctrine. However, the origins of spiritualism go back to ancient times. Probably few people know that the great Greek philosopher Socrates was in the habit of communicating with his spirit guide, whom he called his own guardian. When he wanted to meet with him, he used to put himself into a state of absolute mental passivity. Believing in an invisible spirit and resolutely refusing to deny its existence proved fatal for Socrates. He was labeled a heretic and sentenced to martyrdom by poisoning with hemlock. Kardec himself stated that the idea for writing the work was given to him …. by Socrates himself. In modern times. Spiritism in itself is not considered a religion. The doctrine asserts that there is no god above all things, and that spirits have the ability to improve and atone for sins committed in their lifetime. Extraterrestrial beings can improve themselves through gradual reincarnation, while communicating and interfering in human life. It is also said that there is life on other planets besides Earth.
Nowadays, spiritualism is widely present in the cultural world: in many movies, TV shows or series can find elements of this doctrine
