Spiritualism is a Religion of Experience of the Truth of the Continuity of Life.
Spiritualism shows that life is continuous. That we only alter form of energies upon the withdrawal of the physical body. That there is no end of life, even with what we define as death. As a science, this is proven through communication with once embodied spirits - people that are considered to be dead.
Modern Spiritualism grew through the 1800s and early 1900s from the undeniable demonstrations of communication between all planes of existence, including the higher planes of Angels and Spirit Guides.
Not all Spiritualists are Mediums and not all Mediums are Spiritualist. But a high percentage of skilled Mediums have been trained in and practice the philosophy of Spiritualism, that philosophy being one of personal responsibility for spiritual growth, while with a physical body and while in spirit. Spiritualists believe that we create our individual reality by living in accordance with Natural Law both on the earth and once we're transitioned to the spirit realm.
