No, God would not forsake her, she thought. He would give her strength to fulfill to the end the commitment she had taken upon her shoulders with the beauty of her first dream and with the courage of her first hour. She would uphold the unfortunate offspring of her flesh as if he were a treasure from heaven. Her love would expand with her beloved son’s suffering; her maternal sacrifices would be sweeter every time pain came upon him with more intensity. Wasn’t he worthier of her devotion and self-sacrifice because of the afflicted condition he was born with? The children of her old friends were beautiful and intelligent, like fragrant blossoms of life, promising infinite joy on the pathway of the future. Her mentally ill little paralytic was also beautiful, even though he needed a greater amount of gentleness and support. God knew why he had come into the world without the faculties that other children had. Wasn’t it enough to trust the Supreme Father? She would serve the Lord without question; she would love her son throughout all eternity; she would die if need be so that he could live.
That was the beautiful passage from the book “In the Greater World”, by the Spirit André Luiz (received by Francisco Cândido Xavier). With conventional psychiatric practices and knowledge, we correct the effects as much as possible, but only those who love manage to reach down the deeper causes. Knowledge helps on the outside, only love helps on the inside. Our unfortunate patients require an inner intervention in order to modify their and their discarnate obsessors imbalanced mental states once and for all. Knowledge can do very little compared with the much that love can do.
Since Spirits are bound together in a family group by their mutual necessity of evolution and reciprocal need for readjustment, those who surround the obsessed patient are strongly connected with the predisposing agent – if not personally responsible for the entity’s past failure – and who were now summoned to cooperate in the settlement of accounts.
It is said that the Spirits (family members) that live with a mentally ill suffer much more than the patient himself. This is not true. They suffer because they need to evolve since they bear a share of responsibility in the problem they are now meeting. They must therefore do their best to help the liberation of the obsessed, liberating themselves consequently.
This is why it is vital in any obsession that the patient’s family be strongly advised as to its own responsibilities concerning the obsession.
The patient’s family members must be selfless workers who can ignore fatigue, sadness and discouragement.
They, sanctified by sacrifice and suffering, are bearers of the Divine Love filled with renewing power.
Each of them, the untiring walker, ignored but always serving, humiliated yet courageous, persecuted but undisturbed, converting his sentiments into channels of love, will meet the highest success.
Even when born with mental limitations, tormented by emotional disorders, the little one becomes a crucified angel in the woodshed of suffering, in need of care, assistance and education. The love of the parents is that child’s guiding light at the end of a tunnel of afflictions, pointing the way towards the liberating exit.
When the shadows seem to get darker, and hope, like a flickering candle, is slowly waning, a beam of the Divine Light shows a new way.
Mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, husbands and wives, relatives and friends, please read prayers for psychic protection of your loved ones.
The invisible helpers are around us all the time.
In the picture above (click it to see what the human eye sees), the higher spirits administer energies around the most important regions of the girl’s body, including her brain and heart, for several minutes before progressing to longitudinal passes meant to calm her nerves.
All family members must keep in mind that when inspired by lofty purposes of helping their loved ones they also must defend themselves against attack from the forces of evil (obsessing entities) – whatever form they may take. Any problem they may come across (provocative situations, emotions, etc.) must not disturb or discourage them.
Also, a patient must be protected from provoking in him/her anxious or depressive states, feelings of uselessness or distrust, or uneasiness, which when expressed cyclically and, in the long ran, are transformed into neuroses, psychoses, and mental disturbances. And remember: important decisions usually ask for much toil and labour before they materialize.
When patient and his relatives start to fight their way up, their effort to ascend creates a positive, healthful aura around them that makes it easier for the spirit friends to help them.
If you become a spiritually sound individual, you can help your loved ones by sending forth a steady stream of health-preserving energy that radiates in all directions and interplays with the divine vibration: life’s essential cause.
A few words about what the family really is. A family group is not a casual encounter of random souls; rather extensive planning is done in the spiritual spheres before the organic rebirth of those souls with mutual commitments. We do not live in the ‘ideal family’ we wish for, growing up with noble and wise spirits surrounding us. Instead, we come to a group in which our own evolutionary needs are addressed.
