*New to Spiritism? Let us explain what “passes” are:
“The pass is a transfusion of energies that alters the entire cellular field. Science teaches us that the atom is not the indivisible component of matter, but that prior to it are sub-atomic principles, and that prior to those principles is thought. In Nature, everything originates in the spirit. If we renew our thoughts, everything within us is modified. In magnetic healing, the sending and receiving of this spiritual assistance helps the patient to heal him/herself. The enlivened mind is able to renew the microscopic organisms in the body and healing begins. The pass has a decisive influence in healing when received with respect and confidence/faith.” **
In other words, “passes” are the transference of spiritual energies or vital fluid from a medium and/or spirit source to the beneficiary.
Spiritism divides “passes” into three types:
1. Magnetic, in which the energy source is the medium;
2. Spiritual, in which the energy source is the spirit; and
3. Mixed, in which the source is both.
Spiritists believe that, in practice, most passes are of the third type.****
