Here is a summary of our home circle.
Home circle held on 10th November 2015.
A physical séance of romantic writing, acting and film.
The research and write up for a physical séance is often as interesting as sitting in the investigation into spirit activity. Sometimes there are notable links, anniversary connections, information which had previously been unknown to many and links between claimed spirits which intrigue everyone who has taken part in the séance.
In this physical séance, as you will note there was a strong connection to the film and book of Gone with the Wind, two spirits who were notable for having written and for having acted the lead in the film were referenced.
At the beginning of the physical séance the members noted the first activity about twenty minutes into the investigation. The temperature became distinct by its coolness, noises started to indicate that someone was walking in the séance where no one was seen and on members asking for more evidence the medium linked to a man who had focused the majority of his life on the written word. Someone who loved the interpretation of what his sense of spirit could achieve on paper, this man was someone who appreciated what life had shown to him. There was a link to the name of Samuel Taylor Coleridge (21 October 1772 – 25 July 1834) who was an English poet, he had been a literary critic and philosopher who, with his friend William Wordsworth, was a founder of the Romantic Movement in England. In the séance there was the sound of footsteps again, this time from around where the medium was in the séance. The medium talked about the male spirit who introduced the ideas of persuasive references through his work. Life, he said was all about what could effect the person, the moods of the seasons and the matters that condition the spirit. As the spirit talked it was of interest to me that there was a lot of unexplained noise in the séance. February and March were talked about by the spirit as important and he spoke of his literary work being a reason of conflict amongst his friends. The spirit said that it was significant that one achieves something in their life and in the end all that mattered was that one was true to themselves.
Romantic themes continued as there was a slight lift in the temperature and then it went cool as a female spirit with the initials of V and H was referenced. The medium spoke of a film that linked with the female and that she was later known favourably for her role as an actress in it. Information was given by the medium about the personal and public life which when researched suggests Vivian Mary Hartley, later known as Vivien Leigh (5 November 1913 – 8 July 1967), was one of the spirits in the séance. Vivien Leigh was an English stage and film actress. She won two Academy Awards one for Best Actress for her performances as “Southern belle” Scarlett in Gone with the Wind. It was of interest that the female actress spoke about her life with a reference similar to that of the first male spirit, she said that one had to be true to what they believed and it was no use being flimsy in their convictions because at the end of the day it was your life to lead and no one else should have as much say in it as you.
Both the first male spirit and that of the female spirit indicated problems experienced within their chests in life. There were a lot of orbs, unexplained lights, seen around the sighting of the two spirits. A reference was also given to that of Birthdays. The two spirits had anniversaries for birthdays not that far from each other and the medium linked with another female spirit because of a connection to an anniversary for a birthday.
Margaret Munnerlyn Mitchell (November 8, 1900 – August 16, 1949) was the spirit to be researched as third who was referenced in the physical séance, she was an American author and journalist. Linked with that of Vivien Leigh because of a certain film, both have anniversary for a birthday three days apart from each other and in the séance the spirits were noted as being closely connected. One novel by Mitchell was published during her lifetime, it was the American Civil War-era novel, Gone with the Wind, for which she won the National Book Award for Most Distinguished Novel of 1936 and she won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1937. In the physical séance the medium referenced the lady as someone who wrote and enjoyed the written word in life. In more recent years, a collection of Mitchell’s girlhood writings and a novella she wrote as a teenager, Lost Laysen, have been published. A collection of articles written by Mitchell was republished in book form.
All the information in the séance about Margaret Mitchell indicated that she had been passionate about certain scenes in her own life. A writer should be able to get down the meaning of life according to her own heart, the spirit said and have people give attention to what she says because of the authority of her word. The séance was able to note a lot of physical activity in the form of unexplained lights, orbs, and there was a cracking sound which was followed by a lot of voice phenomena. The voices almost as if people were talking quietly could be noted in the séance but the members could not find from where the sound had come.
The physical séance was one which noted evidence about three individuals. Two writers and one actress known for having acted in one of the writer’s works. All three had anniversary links and were known to have been referenced in the séance when activity was seen, sensed or heard by members in the séance.
