Here is a summary of our home circle.
Home circle held 4th October 2016.
Claims of activity in a séance can be investigated because the environment is kept as objective as is possible. Exploration of what has happened, to who, when and how it could have been noted are all a basis as for finding out if an activity is unexplained.
The séance was quiet at first. Members started to receive messages a short while into the investigation. Individual links were referred to by the medium and validations could be given by the sitters for whom the messages were directed. Smells were a feature of the séance during this time as several sitters could depict scents that were relevant to the spirit who was talking to them in a message. This as a part of the investigation was of interest as for how the meaningful smells could have been noted for such a short but distinctive time.
The medium referred to a male spirit thought to be William Clark Gable (February 1, 1901 – November 16, 1960) an American film actor, often referred to as an iconic and notable individual. Gable began his career as a stage actor, he then appeared as an extra in silent films between 1924 and 1926 and progressed to supporting roles with a few films for MGM in 1931. His first leading Hollywood role came the next year and he became a leading man in more than 60 motion pictures over three decades. In the séance there was a reference to him as talking of an anniversary.
There was a few minutes in the séance where white outlines were seen. At first there were claims of sightings of movement and several sitters all identified what they saw as outlines of someone. Visual evidence was later seen as Orbs were noted by members. Unexplained lights or Orbs were seen to be near to members’ faces and each was noted for only a few seconds.
The medium talked of a female spirit next and this was because of the reference of acting and links to the arena of films that she could note. Information was given specifically of someone thought to be a Greta Garbo (born Greta Lovisa Gustafsson; 18 September 1905 – 15 April 1990), a Swedish-born American film actress and an international star and icon during the 1920s and 1930s. In the séance there was a reference to the lady’s love of the performance she could give and the ease of movement that she could have when she was acting. Nominated three times for the Academy Award for Best Actress and having received an honorary award in 1954, in spirit the lady’s links were to how she felt at home with people around her. In 1999 the American Film Institute ranked Garbo fifth on their list of the greatest female stars and this was particular to Classic Hollywood Cinema, after Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, and Ingrid Bergman. In the investigation there were notes of references made to how she had learned to like the activity and frenetic pace of the lights in the film industry. She was pleased to have been able to talk of what she loved in life and she stated that when someone found a sense of peace then they truly had a gift of spirit.
All the messages seemed important in the investigation and the validation of the sitters to the information they obtained from the messages suggested accurate links of loved ones to their friends and family. Orbs and smells of scents, favoured perfumes were interesting evidence to investigate, not only as no explanation could be found as for how they could have been noted but because they were seemingly personalised physical references to reminders of people who had passed. There was a lot of information and intriguing sightings of unexplained objects, the activity on each occasion during the séance was noted, investigated and while they all could be confirmed as having been seen there was no practical explanation as for how the séance had been able to experience them.
