Overview:
In this book, André Luiz analyzes the various aspects of mediumship, emphasizing the efforts of mediums who are faithful to the spiritual mandate received prior to their reincarnation. He also warns of the risks involved in poor exchanges between the two worlds. It talks about trance, somnambulism, possession, clairvoyance, out-of-body experiences, fascination, psychometry, and the mediumship of physical effect, among others. It is a technical study of great relevance that discloses the ways in which Spirits act during intricate processes of communication with the incarnate beings. It conveys concepts of spirituality received from enlightened mentors, which contain explanations of philosophical, scientific, and evangelical nature, indispensable to those who are dedicated to the study of mediumship.
 
About the Authors:
Francisco de Paula Cândido Xavier, or affectionately "Chico" Xavier, was born on April 2, 1910 in Pedro Leopoldo, State of Minas Gerais, Brazil. He became recognized as the expressive worker of Spiritism through his mediumship as well as in the field of assistance, social, and spiritual promotion of human beings. Through psychography he published 409 books that have sold an estimated 25 million copies, the profits of which have all been channeled to charitable organizations. He discarnated on June 30, 2002.
 
André Luiz was a physician and researcher who lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at the beginning of the XX century. After his discarnation, he spent over eight years in the lower zones, being finally rescued by Clarêncio, an assistant from "Nosso Lar", one of the spiritual colonies neighboring Earth. After a period of learning and intense work at Nosso Lar, André Luiz gradually overcame pride and selfishness, and eventually acquired citinzenship at Nosso Lar. His solid scientific knowledge and great powers of observation have allowed him to recount his experiences as a discarnate being, first in the lower zones and subsequently at Nosso Lar. His experiences and struggles to better himself come down to us through the psychography of Francisco Xavier and are beautifully narrated in the books that comprise the André Luiz Collection or "Life in the Spiritual World." Faithful to the solid foundation of the codification by Allan Kardec, his novels are an amazing non-fictional, first-hand account of the author’s educational and transforming experiences in the spiritual realm. They all bring to life the teachings of the Spiritist philosophy, the revealing observations of Spiritist science, and the unequivocal operation and justice of the natural laws. Whether spiritist or not, we should all strive to learn from the pages of his life so we may be better prepared to face our own.
