Spiritualism is the Science, Philosophy, and Religion of continuous life, based upon the demonstrated fact of communication, by means of mediumship, with those who live in the Spirit World.

 Spiritualism has been called a religion of conviction, not conversion.

Many discovering Spiritualism feel they have come home. Students learn the Science, Philosophy, and Religion of Modern Spiritualism. Spiritualism proves the continuity of life—that life continues after so-called death. Through its religion, Spiritualism follows Natural Law, the law of God (Infinite Intelligence).

The Religion of Spiritualism


A Spiritualist is one who believes, as the basis of his or her religion, in the communication between this and the Spirit World by means of mediumship and who endeavors to mold his or her character and conduct in accordance with the highest teachings derived from such communication. (1914, Rev. 1938)  Learn about Joining a Spiritualist Church

A Medium is one whose organism is sensitive to vibrations from the spirit world and through whose instrumentality, intelligences in that world are able to convey messages and produce the phenomena of Spiritualism. (1914)

“The office of mediumship is to bless humanity, to enable the race to overcome conditions of matter sufficiently to make such the servant rather than the master of intelligent beings, to enable it to guide (through intuition) the individual for their own and others good.
Mary T. Longley from “Teachings and Illustrations As They Emanate From The Spirit World.”

Spiritual Healing

Spiritual healing, recognized in many ancient religions, has been a principle of Spiritualism since its beginning. Today, evidence is growing in the medical community of the importance of spiritual healing to the cure of the individual in need. Evidence is growing that the whole person needs treatment, not just the illness.

A Spiritualist Healer is one who, either through his or her own inborn power or through mediumship, is able to transmit curative energies to physical conditions. (1930, 1993)

The results of Spiritual Healing are produced in several ways:

  • By spiritual influences working through the body of the medium to transmit curative energies to the diseased parts of the recipient’s body.
  • By spiritual influences enlightening the mind of the medium so that the cause, nature and seat of the disease in the recipient is made known to the medium.
  • Through the application of absent healing treatments whereby spiritual beings combine their own healing energies with the energies of the medium and cause them to be absorbed by the system of the recipient.

A Spiritualist Healer works with the spirit, mind, emotions, and the body of the recipient. A Spiritualist Healer is aware that once stress is removed from the mind and emotions, the body will respond naturally. This brings about holistic healing in the patient.

Spiritualist Healers acknowledge the importance of the medical community and work in cooperation with it at all times. Spiritualism recognizes that the medical community is an instrument of healing of the Infinite.
