Within the last hundred and fifty years a great number of intellectuals in various fields of human knowledge, especially in the scientific area, have contributed with important researches in order to help mankind understand its own spiritual reality in a more clear and reasonable way.
To list all of them here would deviate from the main purpose of this work. Nevertheless, it is worth mentioning names such as William Crookes, Frederic Wilhelm Myers, Camille Flamarion, Leon Denis, Alfred Russel Wallace, Gabriel Delane, Charles Richet, Arthur Conan Doyle, William James, Sir Olive Lodge, Robert Hare, Gustave Geley, James Hervey Hyslop, William Stainton Moses, Robert Hare, Epes Sargent, Alexandre Aksakof, Robert Dale Owen, Richard Hodgson, Ian Stevenson among many others. It is also opportune to make reference to the extensive evidences comprised in the Proceedings of the Society for Psychical Research in London as well as the American Society for Psychical Research.
The huge amount of evidence in this field discovered by these men through organizations alike, should be enough to lead one to the inevitable conclusion that we are spirits who are here in a journey of learning.
Accordingly, mediumship is the key that will lift up the veil that still lays over the natural link which connects the material and the spiritual worlds. It also holds the secret that will unfold the laws, which at this point is mostly unknown. These laws will make us understand that we all belong to the same and only family that inhabits the universe. This family comprises of all the brotherhood of humanity, incarnate and discarnate, bound in a chain of unavoidable fraternity, under the banner of a true charity and the sovereignty of the same Father – God.
Many devoted men and women throughout the world have contributed significantly to spread the knowledge regarding mediumship. However, only a few of them were able to fulfill the task of being true missionaries in this field, in a sense of not only spreading the messages from the Superior Spirits, but also living accordingly.
