  • It is the principles and laws contained in the works of Allan Kardec that have been revealed by the higher spirits. These works form the so-called "Spiritist Codification": The Book of Spirits, The Book of Media, The Gospel in the Light of Spiritism, Heaven and Hell and Genesis.
  • "Spiritism is a science that studies the nature, origin and fate of spirits as well as their relationships with the physical world". Allan Kardec (On the Nature of Spiritism - Preamble)
  • “Spiritism realizes what Jesus said about the promised Comforter: knowledge of things by explaining to people where he comes from, where he is going and why he is on earth; he calls people to the true principles of God's law and comforts them through faith and hope ”. Allan Kardec (The Gospel in the Light of Spiritism - Chap. VI - 4)
  • He reveals new and deeper views on God, on the universe, on humans, on spirits and on the laws that regulate life.
  • He still reveals what we are, where we came from, where we will go, what the goal of our earthly existence is and what sense pain and suffering have.
  • By bringing new views on man and everything around him, spiritism engages with all areas of man's knowledge, activity and behavior, and opens a new era for the renewal of mankind.
  • It can and should be learned, analyzed and practiced in all fundamental aspects of life, such as scientific, philosophical, religious, ethical, moral, educational and social.
  • God is the highest intelligence and the origin of everything. He is eternal, immutable, immaterial, unique, omnipotent, sovereign, just and good.
  • The universe is God's creation. It includes all thinking and non-thinking, ensouled and non-ensouled, material and immaterial beings.
  • Apart from the physical world, which is the living space of the incarnated spirits - that is, of people - there is the spiritual world which is the living space of the non-incarnated spirits.
  • In the universe there are other inhabited worlds in which beings of different stages of development live: like humans, more developed and less developed than humans.
  • All laws of nature are divine laws because God is their creator. They encompass both physical and moral laws.
  • Man is an incarnated spirit in a material body. The perisprit (astral body) is the semi-material body that connects the mind with the material body.
  • The spirits are the intelligent beings of creation. They form the spiritual world, which was primarily physical being and will outlast all material things.
  • The spirits are created simply and ignorantly. They develop intellectually and morally, ascending from a lower to a higher plane, until they reach the perfection in which they enjoy an unchanging joy.
  • The spirits preserve their individuality before, during and after each new incarnation.
  • The spirits reincarnate as many times as is necessary for their own development.
  • The spirits always evolve. In their multiple physical existences, they can stand still. But they never regress. The pace of their intellectual and moral advancement depends on the efforts they undertake to achieve perfection.
  • The spirits belong to different classes, depending on the degree of perfection they have reached: pure spirits who have already reached the highest perfection; Good spirits, in whom the desire for the good prevails; Imperfect spirits, characterized by ignorance, desire for evil and lower passions.
  • The relationships between spirits and humans are permanent and have always existed. The good spirits influence us for good, give us support in the trials of life, and help us pass these trials with courage and devotion. The imperfect spirits drive us to wrongdoing.
  • Jesus is the way and the example for all humanity. And the doctrine that He taught and exemplified is the purest expression of divine law.
  • The morality of Christ, contained in the gospel, is the guide for the safe development of all people. The practice of Christian morality is at the same time the solution to all human problems and the goal that humanity should achieve.
  • Man has the free will to act, but is responsible for the consequences of his actions.
  • The future life brings punishments and rewards to man according to his behavior towards divine law.
  • Prayer is an act of worshiping God. Worship lies in the law of nature and arises from an innate feeling, as does the innate intuition of the Creator's existence.
  • Prayer makes people better. The one who prays with fervor and trust makes himself more resistant to the temptation of evil, and God sends good spirits to help him. This is help that will never be refused if he sincerely asks for it.
  • All spiritualistic practice is free, as the moral principle of the Gospel teaches: "Give free what you have received free."
