How do we attract our Spirit friends? Departed spirits live in the spheres above the earth sphere and do not come down to us excepting as visitors. As a man lives, so is he known to the inhabitants of the Spirit World. They see our real character and not the outward mask that is presented to the gaze of the world. They can all see our true disposition at a glance and in their visits to the earth they are attracted to kindred minds by a law of nature which is universal in both worlds and causes like to attract like, so that someone of intelligence and refinement will attract those of the same class, whilst a stupid man will draw round him minds of his own calibre. This is not because they love him but because they seek sympathy and it is necessary for them to have it—being the food they live on. This law determines the nature of our spirit friends. If they come from the higher spheres, they are attracted to us from ties of love or a desire to do us good or benefit others through us. If they belong to the earth plane, they are drawn to him because his life is of more interest and excitement to them than the life of the disembodied spirits who remain on the earth plane.
