Here is a summary of our home circle.
Home circle held on 20th October 2015.
A physical séance is a specific sat investigation into claimed spirit sighting, activity or unexplained events.
There was no comments or observations for the first part of the séance. It was about fifteen minutes into the investigation when the first form of activity was noted by the sitters. Members claimed seeing a light phenomena. Different members reported that little bright lights were visible in one area. On looking it was evident that there were three noted instances of these lights, the Orbs as they can be referred to are normally light phenomena noted via a camera which then later appears on photographs or they have been known to be reported to be seen at real time in low lit areas. In the low lit setting of the séance these Orbs were being depicted by members. Small and rounded the lights seemed to be visible one at a time. Only seen for a few seconds each, the lights could be observed to move across the séance area slowly and interestingly they would seemingly track across to a specific sitter or member where they would then be lost from view.
The medium spoke of four spirits. There were several males who had things they would like to say to the séance. The three male spirits were linked with Kingdoms or Kings and had a connection to England.
The first male spirit spoken of by the medium was associated to the name Plantagenet. Information and links about the person has led to the researched Richard III (2 October 1452 – 22 August 1485) who was King of England from 1483 until his death in 1485, at the age of 32, in the Battle of Bosworth Field. As he was the last king of the House of York and the last of the Plantagenet dynasty, his title is an important one in history. His defeat at Bosworth Field was the last decisive battle of the Wars of the Roses. The event marked the end of the Middle Ages in England. In the séance the male spirit was eager to talk about his interests to loyalty, one had to stay loyal to his homeland and to where the interests of his public were most felt. He is the subject of the fictional historical play entitled Richard III by William Shakespeare and has had an image which has been widely talked about in the public.
In the séance there were several instances of cold, almost icy, temperatures which were felt by the members. There was no explanation for why the cold should have been felt or for how it could have been quickly noticed and then for an ambient temperature to be felt once again. The medium referred to the first male spirit being a naturally decisive person, one who loved his family and who had had passed from life at a young age. There was a lot left for him to say, he loved the beauty of England and was one who had put a lot of things away to be used at a later date but that the event of his passing infringed on a lot of what he had left to do.
As the spirit was noted to leave the séance, there was a female spirit who was linked to by the medium. An Orb was seen at this time and before the medium went into further detail about what she was saying images, the medium said, had shown her as a beautiful lady in an older style of long dress. Linked she was to both Henry VIII and to the Richard III who had just been spoken of and noted in the séance. Catherine or Katherine of York (14 August 1479 – 15 November 1527) who was the ninth child and sixth daughter of King Edward IV by his wife Elizabeth Woodville. It was from birth to death, she was daughter to Edward IV, sister to Edward V, niece to Richard III, sister-in-law to Henry VII and aunt to Henry VIII. The female spirit aimed to talk of two ideas and the medium let her voice fill the séance. The voice came from the medium but sounded altered and spoke of confusion. One had to use the word loyalty, she knew that it had been said but loyalty was important in life as was love. If one loved their country and the people they wished to serve then loyalty was not a problem. When one had love and loyalty then there was an easy life ahead but if loyalty divided one from their sense of love then life was more troubled. As the spirit left, the medium talked of a sense of peace that filled her, she sensed that life had not always been as one had thought it was for the lady.
A few minutes only separated that of the last spirit to the final two. Both male, the medium continued to speak but quickly. There seemed to be a lot of strength and energy as she spoke. A King, a male who would like to be known. The medium started to give information about him but mid way there was claims of activity. A lot of white circular particle like pieces filled the séance. Almost as if someone had taken a blanket or cover and shaken it so that the pieces would fill the air. Without the blanket or any object to explain where the pieces had come from, the observation lasted for a few seconds. The medium referred to the male spirit of who is believed is John (24 December 1166 – 19 October 1216), also known as John Lackland (Norman French: Johan sanz Terre), was King of England from 6 April 1199 until his death in 1216. France had been linked to for him as had in the information a claim for an anniversary link. It was following the battle of Bouvines, John lost the duchy of Normandy to King Philip II of France, which resulted in the collapse of most of the Angevin Empire and contributed to the subsequent growth in power of the Capetian dynasty during the 13th century. It is interesting because in many ways there is a connection between events and two of the male spirits of the séance. The baronial revolt at the end of John’s reign led to the sealing of something called the Magna Carta, a document sometimes considered to be an early step in the evolution of the constitution of the United Kingdom.
It seemed as if the medium was full of energy as she spoke of the final spirit of the séance. Henry III (1 October 1207 – 16 November 1272), who was also known as Henry of Winchester, was King of England, Lord of Ireland and Duke of Aquitaine from 1216 until his death. The link of Aquitaine was important as it was one of the first things associated to the spirit. The reference to him was important as the medium said he had a position to speak of and would like for his being in the séance to be noted. He was a king who had served his people, his image of what a leader should be like could not always meet the demand of his people. The spirit talked about ideals, about ambitions and aims never outliving that of the person who has them. You may have a belief that you can set out plans for a future to be but they will never form to exactly how you have them planned and that is no bad thing for sometimes it is with the onset of a fresh perspective one can improve things, make alterations to one’s beliefs and to extend on the good which may have already been set in stone. As the spirit left there was a sense of calm that seemed to come from the medium and it has to be said that although this could not be physically proven there was a sense as if a lot of people had just left the séance, it felt far less full even though the same members were seated there.
The séance was an exceptional event. Full of information, activity and links, four people connected not only to their love for England but also had their own personal anniversaries and reference to make about what they believed in.
