Spiritualists believe in the continuation and survival of the soul after the death of the physical body. It is considered that death is not the end and the spirit of the deceased live on in the spirit world. Through a medium, an individual with the ability to communicate with those that have passed over, messages are sent from one world to the next. Healing is an important aspect of church practice. It is accepted that spirits send healing energies though the hands of healers to people in need of relief from their earthly ailments.
Spiritualism is more than a religion for those that believe, many say it is a way of life. The belief in the spirit world is interwoven into the fabric of their existence and daily lives, becoming a reassuring mechanism to those that are in mourning or looking for a deeper meaning to life and death.
