Brazilian spiritism was notable for its discursive power in the lectures, however, in the scenario of social isolation, required by the context of COVID-19, this face-to-face practice was curtailed in order to contain viral proliferation through interpersonal contagion or via fomites. Spiritist lecturers have gained considerable breadth in cyberspace, promoting a true pandemic of lives, committed to maintaining emotional sanity through the foundation of spirituality, considering that a large number of people are being negatively impacted on mental health compared to those infected. by the microorganism in evidence. Cyber ​​efforts have attracted countless viewers, which demonstrates the efficiency of “educator” initiatives, but not always their effectiveness. When it comes to the relationship between social networks and spirituality, it is substantial to observe the importance of issuing themes to audiences, trying to understand if the information is adapted to the purpose, considering the expectations of those involved. The lives on spirituality are fuel to face the emotional weaknesses of the global moment, but they need to be optimized, the guidelines need diversity, the schedules lack alternatives and require attention to the viewer, thus they will serve as a true source of care for human dimensions.
