Spiritualist believe that spirits of the dead have the ability and the inclination to communicate with the living. The afterlife, or “spirit world”, is seen by many Spiritualist, not as a static place, but as one in which spirits continue to evolve. These two beliefs: that contact with spirits is possible, and that spirits are more advanced than humans, leads Spiritualists to a third belief, that spirits are capable of providing useful knowledge about moral and ethical issues, as well as about the nature of God. Thus, many Spiritualists will speak of their spirit guides— specific spirits, often contacted, who are relied upon for spiritual guidance.
- Although various Spiritualist traditions have their own beliefs, known as Principles, there are some shared concepts:
- A belief in spirit communication.
- A belief that the soul or spirit continues to exist after the death of the physical body.
- Personal responsibility for life circumstances.
- Even after death it is possible for the soul to learn and improve
- A belief in a God, often referred to as “Infinite Intelligence”.
- The natural world considered as an expression of said intelligence.
