Here is a summary of our home circle.
Home circle held 20th June 2017.
A recent séance investigation provided unexplained moments in which notes were made on experience and possible conclusions for what occurred.
At the beginning of the séance there was an evidently poignant and validated time where messages passed from spirits to members via the medium. Several members claimed feelings of their hair being touched and tingling sensations while messages were being given.
The medium talked about several spirits, one of which was a male actor and comedian. Information was relayed about someone thought to be Sid James (born Solomon Joel Cohen; 8 May 1913 – 26 April 1976) a South African-born British actor and comedian.
This gentleman in spirit was noted to talk about intervals and the importance of being able to take time in between what was being done to breathe. Appearing in British films from 1947, he was cast in numerous small and supporting roles into the 1960s. His profile was raised as Tony Hancock’s co-star in Hancock’s Half Hour, and this was in the first in the radio series and later when it was adapted for television and ran from 1956 to 1960. In the séance the male spirit was seen as smiling. In his roles on the Carry On films, appearing in nineteen films of the series, with the top billing role in 17 (in the other two he was cast below Frankie Howerd) Sid James became notable with public audiences. Meanwhile, his starring roles in television sitcoms continued on up to his passing in 1976. He starred alongside Diana Coupland in the 1970s sitcom Bless This House. There were image references and a passing comment about his sense of interest and humour at talk of people having seen his ghostly appearance.
A little later in the séance unexplained smells could be identified as impotant reminders for those who had sat in the investigation. Explanations could be found as for what the smells were and why there were significant but not as for how they had been depicted at that time in the room. There was nothing that should have set off these smells or explained why they should have been distinct for a few seconds at a time.
The medium spoke of a brunette. A female with two idenifiable names. A bit later more information came in about someone believed to be Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) an American actress and model. Famous for playing comical blonde characters, she became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and was emblematic of the era’s attitudes towards sexuality. Although she was a top-billed actress for only a decade, her films grossed $200 million by the time of her unexpected passing and that was in 1962.
In the séance reference was made by the female spirit to acting and a gentleman actor. She talked of the imporance of self-belief, acting and what made someone think about the important, notable parts of life. Brief but full of learning was how she described a lot of her life experience.
A séance that felt busy, it was an evening that allowed for plenty of investigation. It is easy to examine many of the claims of unexplained activity and to know if there is justifiable cause for a claim or not, what can be harder to prove is the meaning behind a message. In several examples the members themselves had to be the means of defining if evidence was meaningful and how so, the latter messages from a gentleman and a female spirit both contained information about lives and thoughts on what were important aspects in life for them.
