Medium Power and Initiation According to Umbanda

original text: Umbanda.org

We are all spirits incarnate and consequently we are perishable in our physical body, immortal in our essence which follows its development according to the Karmic Laws. However we are still far away from the principles of higher spirituality and our limitation to perceive the Astral World and ourselves in several incarnations are proof of that. Needless to say the unfair exchanges among humans and the disgraceful civil wars.

Umbanda teaches that there is no salvation without Charity and that we should not expect Enlightenment unless we get rid of Selfishness, Vanity and Proud. The professed path is the one of Simplicity, Humility and Purity. The path is long and painful when one does intend to leave Illusion and really conquer these high spiritual values, capable of freeing us from the conscience darkness to which we are submitted.

This path is so difficult that it would be practically impossible to accomplish the objectives without the concourse of the Masters of Simplicity, Humility and Purity transformed in the entities that come down to the temples of Umbanda. Given our moral condition there would be no way for these masters to come to us, unless by means of a medium.

Therefore mediums are those spirits that received, before the present incarnation, certain adjustments in their Astral Organism and in their moral conceptions that enable them to give their physical constitution for communication by means of medium ship, working for Charity and developing themselves and others. This is a commitment between this Being and the Spirits of the Cosmic Brotherhood of Umbanda before birth and that should flourish naturally during incarnation.

Today mediums with positive activities and connected with the Spirits with orders and rights from the Superior Astral are rare. The degree of medium power activity also varies among the mediums according to their consciousness degree and to their experience during the incarnations in which they already exercised this power. We should clarify that it is not necessary to be a medium to belong to Umbanda and that the medium power is not a gift rendered to the "elected" to the kingdom o f heavens. In fact, the mediums are spirits to some extent committed in a karmic way to the planetary evolution, in its majority old debtors that are aware of their debts in a bigger or smaller scale and work to pay them off before the Law.

Some of these mediums are old spirits of the Planet that, although eventually deviated from the fair development path in the past, carry with themselves considerable experience and knowledge of both things of the spirit and forces of Nature and specially human psychology. They are called Initiates of the Umbanda Astral Chain each within his degree.

The Initiation is a continuous process that develops itself during several incarnations dedicated to this learning, it never ends either, because the spiritual development is infinite and each tiny portion of this knowledge brought by one initiatec should be result of his own experience oriented by the masters. So, each strand of hair on the Initiatec’s head is counted for.

The Umbanda Initiation is not denied to anyone although very few carry the seal granted by the Army of Goodness as a karmic legacy. Many will come and everytime really stronger. We remind the ones that have now begin the journey that many lives are awaiting for them and each small step is reached through efforts remarkable but not impossible.

We stress that there is no Pope in Umbanda, although we respect the religions that have such positions. Our sovereign pontifles (pontifex the one that build the bridge to the Divine) are the Entities that come down to the temples and lead us to our essence on behalf of Oxalá.

We know that the Federations and alike have an important role of coalitions within human incarnates without any major spiritual representation. Yet there is a tendency that within time (maybe decades or centuries) there will be a deep union among several temples of Umbanda resulting from sharing the same principles adapted to the community of each one.

In the future all the ones that manage temples will be righteously Initiated Umbanda Priests and they will be able to render a service to all their consultants in a depth compatible with the initiating degree, enabling the consultant to be sent to other associated temples according to the needs.

Finally Umbanda has been showing that the eternal ties are the spiritual ones....




The Ritual for Command Transfer from Root between two priests at the degree of Magus guarantees the continuity of a program previously established by the Superior Astral Mentors. In this picture we see Master Yoshanam embodied in Matta e Silva, Magus and medium, passing in ritual the Order and Rights to the command of Root to Rivas Neto (facing) Magus and medium, under the influence spiritual the Master Arashamanan. The Spade represents Law and Justice in action.
