Spiritual Development

If you've never investigated the scientific evidence, proving the existence of spirits and the afterlife you might be surprised to learn how much solid evidence there is. There was sufficient evidence reported by highly reputable scientists for afterlife research to have been accepted by mainstream science as long ago as 1922. It is very easy to read a brief description of the evidence for the paranormal and dismiss it by assuming some normal explanation. However, if you put in the time and effort to learn more, you will find that there have been many careful investigations that rule out the conventional explanations. A good way to learn more about this evidence is to look at these free e-books and other sources of information:

This web site is a practical guide to spiritual development. It explains how to develop yourself in ways that will benefit you in the afterlife. It describes things you can do that will help you to develop spiritually, including how to become a spiritual worker and attract guides to help you in that work. There are chapters that will show you how to do spiritual healing, how to communicate with your spirit guides and other spirits.

Theoretical information needed to understand the purpose and mechanism of these practices is also provided. Wherever possible, common sense, empirical, or scientific explanations are provided rather than mystical explanations or references to ancient lore. There are numerous references to additional sources of information including many free e-books and news articles on the internet.

There are also links to Blogs with articles on spirituality, the afterlife, and parapsychology.

This book explains methods by which anyone may develop their psychic abilities, but more importantly it also explains how the ordinary person without highly developed psychic abilities can become a spiritual worker. You don't have to be a professional medium to work with spirits.

Some spiritual teachers, Spiritualist churches, and books on spirituality do not explain this fact. Among people in the general population, there is a wide range of levels to which psychic abilities are developed. There are many different ways a person can work with spirits and each of these requires a different level of psychic ability. It is not well understood and not often discussed, but many of these ways of working with spirits require little or no psychic ability at all. By focusing on tasks that require highly developed psychic abilities, such as a psychic medium giving readings to other people, the teaching of tasks that require little psychic ability are neglected, and the vast majority of the general population remains ignorant of the many, many opportunities for them to work with spirits.

There is no need for the ordinary person to remain ignorant of this fact. Spiritual healing and spirit rescue can be done without any overt psychic ability. Communicating with spirit guides can be done by most people who make the effort and who may not realize they have any psychic ability at all. This information is not well understood and it is a goal of this book to show you that working with spirits is for everyone.

If this information were known by the general public, the number of spiritual workers and the amount of spiritual work accomplished would increase substantially. Because most people do not understand they have the capacity to do spiritual work, there are relatively few people involved in that work. Increasing the number of spiritual workers and the amount of spiritual work accomplished would have many benefits for all people, those on earth and those in the afterlife.
