What is Spiritism?
Spiritism is a spiritualist philosophy started in the 19th century by the French educator Hippolyte Léon Denizard Rivail, under the pen name of Allan Kardec.
Spiritism philosophy postulates that humans are immortal spirits that, temporarily, inhabit physical bodies for
several necessary reincarnations to attain moral and intellectual improvement.
It also asserts that disembodied spirits, through passive or active mediumship, may have a beneficent or malevolent influence on the physical world.
Spiritism is an evolution-affirming philosophy.

Important Aspects of Spiritism
For every intelligent effect, there must be an intelligent cause. The Supreme Intelligence is the primary cause.
Immortality of the Soul
Spiritism understands that every being has a soul and that this soul is immaterial and immortal.
Throughout different lives we develop our souls and move towards happiness and perfection.
Spiritist philosophy postulates that everything evolves and that progress is one of the most important laws.
The soul possesses its own individuality and every spirit is created simple and ignorant, owning the power to gradually perfect themselves.
Spirits are incessantly in relation with us. As part of Nature, Spirits can naturally communicate with living people, as well as interfere in their lives.
