Here is a summary of our home circle.
Home circle held 16th January 2018.
A physical séance was sat, attended by members and medium, in a closed and checked room. The séance started with sightings of blue Orbs, unexplained lights, that were spoken of and discussed alongside messages that were given from spirits to sitters. Importantly information of personal memory based evidence and phrases could be validated by those who received the messages and these were noted.
A sound of a someone sitting in one of the empty chairs could be heard and while the actual seat could be observed as for no one being visibly seen to sit in it, the noise was definitively heard as coming from it.
A little later in the séance the medium spoke of a female spirit, a lady who spoke first of another actress for recognition and then became notable because of links about her, to be a Josephine Edwina “Hattie” Jacques (7 February 1922 – 6 October 1980) an English comedy actress of stage, screen and radio. She was a regular of the Carry On films in which she typically played strict, no-nonsense characters. In the séance the lady spoke of a birthday reference and a motherly love. Knowing what and rather who was important in life, she spoke of as significant, as now she could achieve more of an acknowledgement of doing what she loved. In life, Jacques was also a prolific television and radio performer.
In the séance writing was spoken of and in specific a lady was talked about. The medium referenced a peaceful but prominently idea led person. Writing was so important for her and the month of May. It is believed that because of relevant information, the spirit is that of Anne Brontë (17 January 1820 – 28 May 1849) an English novelist and poet, she is known as the youngest member of the Bronte literary family.
The following is a mix of research done after the séance and information given in reference links during the investigation. Anne Brontë lived most of her life with her family at the parish of Haworth on the Yorkshire moors. She attended a boarding school in Mirfield between 1836 and 1837. Children and teaching were spoken of as integral to her life and this was referred to in the séance. At 19 she left Haworth and worked as a governess between 1839 and 1845. After leaving her teaching position, she fulfilled her literary ambitions. Agnes Grey, is believed to have been written based upon her experiences as a governess, and it was published in 1847. Persistence was talked about by the female spirit in a speech during the séance. She spoke of needing that persistence to drive you forward, it was when you could feel that desire for more that you then had to aspire to attain all that you could do. Her second and last novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, which is considered to be one of the first sustained feminist novels, appeared in 1848. Both her novels, as was true of her poems, were first published under the masculine pen name of Acton Bell.
It was a séance that, according to notes and actual experience, seemed full of activity and reference. On several occasions speech from spirits came in to members’ awareness through links from the medium and at the same time as physical noises or sightings of Orbs were seen. There was nothing that on inspection could account for the noises or lights as a result of equipment or suggestions and as such these experiences were noted as unexplained by all who sat.
