Involving the planet Earth and projecting itself to
immense distances there are layers of mental currents, a
result of what the embodied and disembodied men think
and how they live and act: that is the terrestrial
In a planet such as ours where evil surpasses good,
these layers, formed by the swirling of good or bad
thoughts that intersect - now in tune with, now with
repulsion - are, of course, contaminated by the most
harmful vibrations, which tend to influence, if not all,
most of Humanity.
It happens that extrapolating the physical silhouette
all living beings have a radiant aura. In humans, in
particular, the vibratory intensity and chromatic
characteristics are consistent with their moral
evolution and behavior.
In the human aura, of protective action as the
"electromagnetic tunic" (...), "energetic halo" (...),
"vibratory shell, a kind of fluidic carapace" (…),“as an
ovoid field”, in the reliable expressions of the Spirit
that are located the openings of the vital centers of
force (chakras), that now capture, now exhaust energies,
There is no objection to consider that said aura is the
psychosphere of each human being, "through which" (still
according to Andre Luiz) "we are seen and examined by
the Superior Intelligences, felt and recognized by our
In this way, it is true that the external influence, if
negative, will only happen if there is psychic
unraveling, i.e., moral non-vigilance of which our aura
will give us an infallible identification.
The Divine Law solidly considers that "to each according
to his works”...
The sum of all auras, with their radiating projections
interlacing, resulting from the incessant thoughts of
the human creatures (embodied and disembodied) will form
the psychosphere of the world in which they live,
plunged and mentally sustaining themselves in this sea
of vibrations and waves – electromagnetic currents,
In our case, the Earth.
Every thought or action has reflections in the
terrestrial psychosphere, although imperceptible,
individually, but expressive, as a whole.
Something like the so-called "butterfly effect",
referring to the initial conditions within the theory of
which according to popular culture, makes the flapping
of wings of a simple butterfly influence the natural
course of things and, thus, cause a tornado on the other
side of the world.
Surely, this is an
overstatement, but likely regarding the psychosphere.
The terrestrial psychosphere is the sidereal address
where all men go when they are disembodied, which means
that we spend a lot of time there...
Exhaustively, the Spirits in higher moral progress
inform that, although without demarcated boundaries in
the spiritual regions that make up the terrestrial
psychosphere, in each of them only the Spirits
accredited by their evolutionary degree live there. And
this is true at all levels of moral platform.
Hence in outer space there are many spiritual layers, or
as Master Jesus taught: "there are many mansions in my
I do not object thinking that the Christ thus expressed
himself, referring already from our blessed planetary
There is no personal opinion here, indeed, always put
In order for the readers themselves to analyze, think
and arrive to a conclusion, I am referring to the
pronouncements of various Spirits, scholars of Spiritism,
all dealing with this instigating subject: the spiritual
In the careful reading of these records one realizes
that just as the planet is surrounded by atmospheric
layers, which science has already defined, in the same
manner - in its astral part - spiritual regions surround

region have in themselves a similar harmony and
Thus, as the Great Law contemplates free will, there are
happy and unhappy dwellings, all built and maintained by
Another detail that I picked up: many are the
denominations for these astral stations, but all
converging to the same characteristics: spiritual
layers, astral regions, spiritual spheres, spiritual
steps, dwellings of light, etc. are some of the
names found. On this detail I allow myself to emphasize
these expressions, thus highlighting the statement.
Following is a brief summary of some of the details I
have learned from the Spiritist literature about
I start, obviously, by:
1. Allan Kardec
"Heaven and Hell", 32nd Ed., 1984, FEB, RJ / RJ
- In Part 1, Chapter IV, items 1,5,7, commenting on the
"Hell", it is stated that in Antiquity man believed, by
intuition, that the future life (after death) would be
happy or unhappy, according to the good or the evil
practiced in this world.
Both the Ancients and the Christians located the kingdom
of happiness in the higher regions; in the
lower regions (dark, terrible cavities in the center
of the Earth) would be those condemned to eternal
By analogy, it turns out that the hell of the pagans
had, on the one hand, the Champs Elysees, and on the
other, the Tartarus; on Olympus, situated in the
upper regions, was the abode of the gods and the
In the Gospel it is written that Jesus descended into
Hell, i.e., to the low places to take away the
souls of the righteous, who awaited the coming of Jesus.
The abode of the Angels, like the Olympus, was in the
high places, which they placed it beyond the stellar
sky, then considered limited.
- In the 1st Part, Chapter IX, no. 13: it is recorded
that the banished Angels, in legions, live in the
lower layers of our atmosphere and travel all over
"The Genesis," Chapter XIV, 35th Ed., 1992, FEB, RJ / RJ
- In item 9 Kardec thinks makes considerations about the
nature of the fluid (perispirit) of the Spirit, which is
always related to its degree of moral progress. The
Lower Spirits cannot change it at will. Therefore, many
coarse Spirits believe themselves to be still incarnate
and for this reason remain on the surface of the Earth.
- In item 10 one sees: (...). "The layer of spiritual
fluids that surrounds the Earth can be compared to
the lower layers of the atmosphere, heavier, more
compact, less pure, than the upper layers."
The intimate constitution of the perispirit is not
identical in all the embodied or disembodied Spirits
that populate the Earth or the surrounding space.
2. Léon Denis
"In the Invisible", 1st Part, 16th Ed., 1995, FEB, RJ /
Item III, p. 51, reports on the degree of purity of
souls: the ethereal, radiant and sublime harmonies are
elevated to the "divine spheres"; however, the
dark and evil souls are impelled into the lower
regions, a scenario of struggle and suffering.
"After death", 12th Ed., 1st Part, 1983, FEB, RJ / RJ
- Item 3, "Egypt": The lower and evil souls are bound
to the Earth by multiple rebirths, but the virtuous
souls fly upwards to the upper spheres, where
they recover the sight of the divine things. They are
imbued with the lucidity of the conscience enlightened
by pain, with the energy of the will acquired by the
struggle. They become luminous, because they possess the
divine in themselves and radiate it in their acts.
Reanimate your heart, Oh Hermes, and reassure your
Spirit obscured by the contemplation of these flights of
souls ascending the scale of the spheres that leads
to the Father, where everything ends, where
everything begins eternally. And the seven spheres
said together: Wisdom! Love! Justice! Beauty!
Splendor! Science! Immortality! (My griffins).
- Item 33: "Life in Space": Souls are placed and
grouped in space according to the degree of purity of
their respective wrap; the condition of the Spirit is in
direct relation to its fluidic constitution, which is
the work itself, the result of its past and of all
works. Determining their own situation, they then find
the reward they deserve. While the purified soul travels
through the spacious and brilliant vastness, it rests at
ease on the worlds, and sees no limits to its flights;
the impure Spirit cannot depart from the vicinity of the

“Evolução em dois mundos”, (Evolution
in Two Worlds), A.Luiz / F.C.Xavier-W.Vieira, Part 1,
"Spiritual Spheres", 11th Ed., 1989, FEB, RJ / RJ
- Chapter 13: Many communicators of the Spiritual Life
have stated in several countries that the immediate plan
for the residence of man is subdivided into several
spheres. This is in fact not from the point of view
of space, but rather under the prism of conditions.
A.Luiz / F.C.Xavier, 6th Ed., 1974, FEB, RJ / RJ
- Chapter IV, pages 52-53 and 62 and Chapter V, page 93:
Rescue team crosses the spiritual regions "in
descent". There: a vast dominion of the shadows;
volition is impossible; sinister and distressing
vegetation; shrieking cries from the ponds; teams of
armed Spirits, in weird costumes, are not a friendly
presence. After a plateau that broke in an abrupt cliff,
in a distance of tens of thousands of kilometers, there
were cavities and abysses, where thousands of creatures
abounded and abused the sacred gifts of life.
"Nosso Lar" (Our Home), 48th Ed., 1998, FEB, RJ / RJ
- Chapter 12, pages 69-71, Chapter 16, pages 90-91: the
Umbral is a dark zone, and it begins in the Earth's
crust. There is a concentration of compact legions of
ignorant souls, neither wicked (to be sent to
colonies of more painful remedy), nor nobles:
to deserve higher plans.
The Spirit Andre Luiz tells us that his mother lives in
a "high sphere" and that his father lives in a "zone
of compact darkness"; his sisters are in the Umbral,
clinging to the Earth's crust.
In the book "Cidade do Alem” (The Astral City), by
FCXavier, Heigorina Cunha and the Spirits Andre Luiz and
Lucius, 24th Ed., 1983, IDE, Araras / SP, there are
explanatory figures with purely pedagogical sketches:
one can see the Earth and the adjacent spiritual
spheres (layers). Information from the authors of
the book shows that the city Nosso Lar (Our Home),
marked with a star, is located in the 3rd sphere
above the Crust, over an extensive region of the State
of Rio de Janeiro (between the cities of Rio de Janeiro
and Campos / Itaperuna), in the boundary that can be
defined as the periphery of the Umbral).

A. Pereira, 5th Ed., 1975, FEB, RJ / RJ
- Chapter I, pages 15-16: treating the regions of the
invisible world describes the desolate panorama of
the region where it was seen ("valley of suicides"),
imprisoned after committing suicide: deep valleys,
sinister caves, only shadows, sinuous gorges; howls of
groups of angry demons; air very dense, suffocating,
cold, dark; there will never be peace, comfort, hope in
