Here is a summary of our home circle.
Home circle held 11th September 2018.
A physical séance is specifically an organised forum, made up of experiences members and medium, focused on any overt spiritual activity that can be noted during a defined and set time. In this domain members and medium sat in a closed room and noted any experiences that occurred during the investigation.
The first part of the séance was filled with laughter and validations from members. There were several independent, individual messages that were passed from spirits to particular members via the medium. These could be noted dependant on how they were personally speech-orientated, full of links and defined references. Based on spoken memories from the spirits, the messages were validated by the recipients as extremely relevant to them. The next few minutes into the séance saw members able to participate in a conjunction of spirits speaking to them and this took the form of a multiple conversation. It was interesting to note because the information was detailed but aimed particularly at the recipients of the messages. There was a collaborative feel to that part of the investigation whereby everybody within the séance seemed to be included in an, at times funny and uplifting, few moments of message-giving.
Particular and unexplained smells were notable in the séance. These were scents that could be depicted in the investigation itself, were recognisable by several members as poignant for them but could not be explained as for how they had permeated the room. The smells were distinct and lasted for a few minutes before disappearing again.
The medium referred to a word of Mallow and later came a mention for an anniversary. Links and information specifically given by the medium about a female in spirit suggested that Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, Lady Mallowan, DBE (born Miller; 15 September 1890 – 12 January 1976) an English writer was the person spoken of in the séance. She is known for her 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections. Particularly well known for those pieces of writing revolving around her fictional detectives Herclue Poirot and Miss Marple. Christie also wrote the world’s longest-running play, a murder mystery and, under the pen name Mary Westmacott, she wrote six romances. In the séance she spoke of her youthful ambitions to be centre stage but fascinated was she by the beauty of the often serene countryside. A sense of being driven, she stated as imperative if one wanted to make a success in life. In 1971 she was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for her contribution to literature.
The medium talked of a male in spirit. Tears of sadness and laughter were spoken about in reference by the gentleman. He made a reference to an anniversary and information about him led the séance to believe that he was a Leonard Rossiter (21 October 1926 – 5 October 1984) an English actor. He had a long career in the theatre but achieved his greatest fame for his television comedy roles. He is most notable perhaps for starring as Rupert Rigsby in the ITV series Rising Damp from 1974 to 1980, and Reginald Perrin in the BBC’s The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin from 1976 to 1979. Comedy was not his first love, the male in spirit explained, he had started to study hard about the theatre and more romantic roles. Distractions, he felt were many, but it was the people who really mattered in life.
It was a very full and at times frantically-paced séance. There was a lot to note about how certain unexplained activity could fit into members’ perceptions of important individuals for them. Many references to information and anniversaries were depicted. It was a combination of links noted during the séance and research conducted after the investigation which resulted in the final blog.
