Here is a summary of our home circle.
Home circle held 10th July 2018.
A séance can vary depending on how it is prepared and investigated. There are many aspects of a séance that have to be ensured to be objective. If desired to be proven in terms of evidence, any findings have to be queried as for further information and explored.
In this recently sat séance, members and medium attended a carefully prepared room. Objects known to be evident as for noise or visual activity were laid out. Everything was visible to medium and members.
The séance began with trance, a closed eyes semi-conscious state whereby the medium, after several minutes passed information about individuals in spirit to the sitters. As she saw the references she gave links and messages. Importantly content of these references could be validated by the members who received them.
Several noises were heard in response to verbal conversations had by the séance. Orbs, blue round spheres of unexplained light were seen. The noises were heard from the objects that had been laid out, a sharp and sudden loud knock was heard from the table top and though these incidents could be clearly heard by everybody in the séance, they could not be explained.
The medium talked of a P D James. Links were given as for someone thought to be a Phyllis Dorothy James, Baroness James of Holland Park, OBE, FRSA, FRSL (3 August 1920 – 27 November 2014), known professionally as P. D. James, an English crime writer. In the séance the medium spoke of a need to remember an anniversary and about a person who from an early age wanted to capture a sense of the vibrancy in what she saw in the world around her. Books and the number fourteen were spoken about. Someone who spoke first and wanted to get out her fast-paced thoughts were amongst the depictions of her in the séance. She talked about the beauty of her home internally. In life research has shown that she rose to fame for her series of detective novels starring a police commander and poet.
The medium spoke of a male in spirit, an American and the name of Henry. More information was referred to and it is believed that it was a reference to a Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) an American philosopher, essayist, abolitionist, poet, naturalist, development critic, surveyor, tax resister and historian. In the séance the gentleman spoke of the wilderness as a thing of beauty and the true wild actions that were feared as being seen in evidence of some people’s actions. A leading transcendentalist Thoreau is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essays on similar social reforming observations. An advocate for the Abolitionist Movement, Thoreau’s philosophy of civil disobedience later influenced the political thoughts and actions of such notable figures as Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. In the séance children were talked about by him and he spoke of natural beauty overtaking that of anything that could be man-made. There was a need for pause and thought because several issues, he felt, were being neglected due to people’s eagerness to progress in a specific means of forward-thinking. Lessons, he stated, could be learnt from a simpler and one thought at a time basis whereby people were less worried about the impatience of tomorrow and more passionate for the availability of today.
The séance was able to keep notes of what was seen and heard. Thorough investigations were made into what was experienced. The timing of activity did intrigue because it did occur to the séance the noises were a form of interaction with ongoing, at the time, conversations. The messages were claimed as poignant and members could validate the evidence that was given to them.
