where else?

Post by mac on Sun Sep 06, 2009 3:07 pm

I love discussions about Spiritualism and mediumship and their relevance to our present world.

But we speak English and mostly see the situations in either the UK or in Australia. Our experience (my experience at least) and exposure is, therefore, highly parochial. But what of the remainder of the world?

Does the message of survival - as we know it through Spiritualism or whatever - circulate elsewhere? If so, what is the view there on the above matters one wonders? Are there mediums (as we'd define 'em) who are not Spiritualist mediums yet give evidence of survival?

Or are we just a tiny bunch of weirdos following a specialised and - to the world as a whole - meaningless path?

I am sure I read recently that there is as least as much information available in Russian and Spanish as there is in English.

I don't just mean translations from English. Smile

Are there Russian and Spanish mediums, all currently providing evidence of survival? It would be heartening were that so. Smile

Or is it a psychics-rather-than-mediums situation? I know that a certain one-time physical-mediumship researcher got together with a German research group but I don't know if that was for evidence-through-mediumship or for the production and study of phenomena...

I don't mean translations from English either Mac. I mean volumes of original work in those languages which has never been translated to English. I don't know how current the material was. For example Brazil has a long history or spritualistic phenomena which I would expect to have been documented in Portuguese I would think very little of it has been translated into English.

The numbers in Brazil are phenomenal, over 10 million but of course it is entirely Spiritist. They are therefore the followers of Allan Kardec who's book form their "gospel". There are many mediums, writers and of course healers.
The web presence of the Spiritist centres can be excellent with most offering key books for free downloads. They are key proponents in EVP and ITC communications interestingly Annabella Cardoso who is Portugal's leading diplomat in Spain is one of the leading Investigators and a committed Spiritist. Spiritists are fairly strong in Spain, Portugal and even into Italy.

Founded by Kardec in France they never started as a "religion" but really have now been accepted as one. It was this distinction seperaiting Spiritism and Religion which allowed them to coexist with teh Catholic Church with less friction. A Brazilian Spiritist who used to attend our Mission confirmed what I had recently seen that it spreads from being almost Catholic Based to a semi voodoo religion in Brazil which I believe in total encompasses over 40 million people.

I have run into some reference to it in Russia but I am very charry of websites there. There is a Korean version (well well) and Japan has a great interest in psychic research.
