Divine MetaphysicsThe 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.
Divine Metaphysics is a Science because it investigates, analyzes and classifies facts and manifestations demonstrated from the spirit side of life.
Divine Metaphysics is a Philosophy because it studies the laws of nature both on the seen and unseen sides of life and bases its conclusions upon present observed facts. It accepts statements of observed facts of past ages and conclusions drawn there from, when sustained by reason and by results of observed facts of the present day.
Divine Metaphysics is a Religion because it strives to understand and to comply with the Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Laws of Nature, which are the “Natural Laws of God”.

SpiritismA Christian-based philosophical doctrine, established in France in the mid-nineteenth century. Although found worldwide, Brazil holds the largest numbers of followers. Spiritism is not seen as a religion by its followers (except in Canada) because it doesn’t endorse formal adoration, require regular or formal membership.
Spiritism, or French spiritualism, is based on books written by French educator Hypolite Léon Denizard Rivail under the pseudonym Allan Kardec reporting séances in which he observed a series of phenomena that he attributed to incorporeal intelligence (spirits). His assumption of spirit communication was validated by many contemporaries, among them many scientists and philosophers who attended séances and studied the phenomena. His work was later extended by writers like Leon Denis, Arthur Conan Doyle, Camille Flammarion, Ernesto Bozzano, Chico Xavier, Divaldo Pereira Franco, Waldo Vieira, Johannes Greber and others.
