A religion based on the works of Allan Kardec that describe phenomena attributed to spirits.

'''Tropes'''

* AllThereInTheManual: The books by Kardec.
* {{Akashic Records}}
* {{Comes Great Responsibility}} / {{Laser Guided Karma}}: A medium, or anyone else for that matter, cannot abuse their powers. Period. If you do it, {{Laser Guided Karma}} will haunt you for your debt, probably removing your privileges now or in a subsequent reincarnation in the process.
** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in that you can loosen your debt through divine favor.
* {{Demonic Possession}}
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Spiritism is largely forgotten in Europe since the early 20th century, but retains a huge number of followers in Latin America, especially Brazil.
* GhostAmnesia: Recently deceased spirits are described as being often oblivious of the fact that they died.
* {{Karma}}
* {{Reincarnation}}
* {{Spirit Advisor}}
* SuperpowerLottery: Various abilities under the umbrella of "mediumship". [[MindOverMatter moving objects]], [[ISeeDeadPeople seeing spirits]], talking to them, [[HealingHands healing]], and so on.
* StrongerWithAge: Spirits keep evolving in apparently every aspect, most notably morality and knowledge.
* ValuesDissonance: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] and [[JustifiedTrope Justified]]. Specifically, there is the evolution of moral values such as altruism, generosity and equality, which is the result of people reincarnating repeatedly and getting better en masse.
* YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm: The senses (vision, etc.) of Earthly people are described as less sophisticated versions of the spirits' senses.
