There are only a few religions. One of them, called Spiritism has at least 14 millions in Brezil.Tell me, what people are closest to spirits, aside from us who do live among people who have the interest to talk about spirits.
Before I name the others I would like to add the definition of spiritism as given in wikipedia :
is a generic term for various beliefs that claim the existence of immortal souls that can somehow be communicated with and interact with the real world (often through channeling) even after death. Many of those religions are reincarnationist. Often the word is used specifically to indicate Kardecist Spiritism, a religion founded by Allan Kardec in the late 19th century.
The others religions interested in spirits are :
- Umbanda is a religion that blends Catholicism, Kardecist Spiritualism and Afro-Brazilian traditions.
- Macumba (Brezil) is very close to European witchcraft.
- Candomblé or Batuque is an Afro-American religion.
- Vodoo or Vodun or Vodou or Vudu has its origin in west african religions in you can find it in Cuba, R. Dominicaine and others in Carrabian region.
If you want to know if I am a spiritist, Susma, the answer is no. I've found pharmaceutical field more suitable for my invoices.
Please give us your experiences or even just views about spirits, or any kind of encouters whatsoever with spirits.
