He spiritism is a doctrine or practice that maintains that it is possible to initiate a communication with the spirit of a dead through a medium in another way. A medium, on the other hand, is a person that is attributed paranormal powers which allow him to act as a mediator in parapsychological phenomena (including communications with spirits).

For example: “Last night I saw a movie in which young people who participated in a session of spiritualism were killed”, "I don't believe in spiritualism or anything like that", “They say that he is a very recognized man in the field of spiritualism for his supposed achievements”.

As a philosophical doctrine, spiritualism arose in the middle of XIX century from the analysis of books encoded by the French Allan Kardec . Its object of study is the origin, nature and destiny of the spirits and the characteristics of the links they establish with the physical world.

Spiritualism sustains the existence of spirits (the human being is an immortal spirit that embodies in a body) and ensures that it is possible to communicate with them. The reincarnation and the karma (law of cause and effect) are other concepts considered valid within this context.

It is important to note that spiritualism is not a religion It is not considered as such. Therefore it has no priests, temples or rituals. The meetings of the spiritualists are considered as meetings to establish communication with the spirits.

Popular culture, meanwhile, usually accepts certain spiritual practices, such as ouija or cup game , although many people avoid them despite not believing firmly in their legitimacy, simply for fear that they really work and cause them some of the typical misfortunes of legends Urban

One of the reasons for the lack of credibility of mediums is that many of them perform shows in theaters and television networks, offering their audiences the supposed possibility of contacting their deceased relatives, and in more than one case fraudulent tactics were detected such as the use of infiltrated personnel among the public to extract information that was later used in the spiritualism session to pretend the communication With the beyond.

On the other hand, since most people cannot attest to being able to speak with spirits, the fact that not all mediums describe their experiences in the same way creates a certain lack of faith. For example, some say that the encounter with the dead occurs spontaneously and that it is not a clear or stable communication, while those who make their supposed ability a show with a pre-established date and time do not seem to have problems in forcing the connection every night and get a lot of data consistently successful.

Unfortunately, spiritualism falls into the same category of other practices that traditionally receive society's contempt and distrust, simply because there are too many examples of scammers who take advantage of those who have lost a loved one and are especially vulnerable; Such an act generates rejection immediately and makes people afraid to believe, as a defense mechanism. However, if we have never had contact with the hereafter, we do not have sufficient authority to rule out the possibility of someone getting it.

Through the James Randi Educational Foundation, created in 1996, anyone who claims to have supernatural powers can prove their authenticity simply by submitting to a series of tests moderated by scientists who offer those who surpass them a truly tempting prize: 1 million Dollars. Who could resist? Without a doubt, someone who does not have the ability It shows.
