    Chico Xavier

    Post  GypsyDream on Sun Jun 22, 2014 8:16 pm

    Hello, All! I wonder if anyone here knows anything about Chico Xavier. He was a very famous  and much beloved medium in Brazil. He actually testified once at a murder trial, and channeled the man who had been murdered.
      He said that the defendant was not guilty, and that the man's death had been an accident. This was considered to be admissible evidence, and on the strength of it, the defendant was set free!!
       Is there anybody else who knows anything about him, or who is a follower of his?

    His name is familiar but can't place him...
    Very like the old band leader from years ago...but back to topic.

    I'm surprised that,that was accepted as evidence.  Was he made to prove his evidence?

    Dead man testifies in trial

    Post  GypsyDream on Sun Jun 22, 2014 8:52 pm

    Hi, SpiritVoices. All I know about this is what I read in Wikipedia. Here is what Wikipedia said about it. They use the word "psychography", which I think means automatic writing.

    A very remarkable psychography which circulated worldwide, was about a case from “Goiania” (a Brazilian city) in which José Divino Nunes, accused of murdering his best friend Maurício Henriques, was cleared from the accusation by a judge who accepted the psychography as a valid proof (among other proofs presented by the defense); a testimony from the victim himself already dead, through a psychographed letter dictated to Chico Xavier. The case took place in October 1979, in the city of Goiânia, Goiás. Thus; the supposed spirit of Maurício, freed his best friend from the accusation of murder claiming that it had been an accident.

    That is remarkable....it is nice to know that a message from the spirit world was accepted... :asmile:

    He's much better known in his own country than he is here.  Perhaps not surprising as there's a language barrier if nothing else....

    Kardec and Spiritism

    Post  GypsyDream on Sun Jun 22, 2014 9:24 pm

    Chico promoted Spiritism, as taught by Alain Kardec. I have a book, I think it's called Book of The Spirits, channeled by Alain Kardec. But I haven't read much of it.

    I also know Chico channeled something like 468 books. He gave away the money he made from their sales.

    I have read that book.   Plus another book by him sent to me a while ago.
    The Spiritist book?  Very interesting....

    Opening Book at Random

    Post  GypsyDream on Sun Jun 22, 2014 9:46 pm

    That's great you read the whole book, Spirit Voices. I just open it at random sometimes and see if I can feel a special connection to what I find there.
