According to those closest to him, APSA had the feeling of a reunion with something he had already known in the past, a fact that awoke him in a violent way, given his reflections on life. Her routine was to read until 3 am with unrestrained joy and satisfaction. That was how he came to understand the fact that he did not accept other forms of religion , which did not have what he was looking for at the base. [3]

APSA began in the year 1961 and 1962 in a healing session, in the dim light of the Centro de Espírita Lar de Mistrael, under the chairmanship of his friend Osvaldo, the development of his 3rd vision ( Clairvoyance ), a presential environment that awoke him to the observation of bright , dark lights , colorful symbols and symbolic visions .

The reunion with the teachings in the works of Ramatis [4] took place in 1962 , the phase of intense study of eclectic and universalist spirituality .

Hercílio Maes

'' Within me, about my awakening and this ideal of bringing spiritual those who are aimless, those who are suffering - so giving, always giving - never aiming any system, any kind of thing that will revert to paid material for what we do. And, within those principles, I managed to gather many hundreds of like-minded creatures. Within an order, a discipline, to attend, in the mediumistic field, those problems that people bring.

Many are victims of their own ignorance, who are carriers. Others bring back problems, negative invisible presences, cases of obsession, presence of incubi and succubi - ex-husband, ex-wife of other lives, problems in which material therapies and remedies and material science cannot achieve due to their nature .

And with the help of our Spiritual Guides - and with the vision that I have, I was able to identify and schedule a spiritual treatment to help solve the problems of the suffering creatures, who seek this help in Ramatis. ''

Dear Brothers:

We are a family owned and operated business.

Spiritualism Christian, philosophical, scientific and religious, when passed in their coded bases by Kardec, under the moral of the Gospel of Jesus as well understood by those who have not yet found the path, origin, nature and spiritual destiny of the human being is a true festival interior. Answers and more answers come about the causes of pain, suffering, social differences, aptitude, beginning to put order in the physical and spiritual mind, in the feelings and the physical acts begin to modify our entire inner nature, hence the self-healing. The Ramatis Spiritist Society is under the aegis of Jesus, Kardec and Ramatis, an oriental spirit linked to Jesus through the Fraternity of the Cross and the Triangle, an organization linked to the chains of the Cross (Jesus) and the Triangle (East), where Ramatis, connected to Jesus and Spiritism, brings deep spiritual teachings from the old oriental wisdom, without the mystique, clothes and other characteristics of the peoples of the East. Ramatis in all his works speaks of Christian Spiritism as the synthesis of spiritual reality, popularizing the truth and fighting to help the spiritual and material population of the West. Ramatis specializes in spiritual treatment. Spiritual problems such as: obsession, depression, possession, backrest, magic (various), presence of invisible disturbers, incubi and succubi (former partners in past lives) are treated in 36 learning meetings and strong help from mediums and Astral guides , attending to all cases where the causes are spiritual. Material remedies and therapies have neither access nor success in the cases we attend in spiritual treatments. I advise the brothers who have strange problems that do not attend conventional medicine, to look for table centers where astral guides can help in the cures.
