Home circle.

Here is a summary of our home circle.

Home circle held 25th July 2017.

A séance can be an intriguing platform from which to then investigate any claims or notable occurrences.  It is because of the prepared and observed aspect of the séance that it is easier to be definitive about unexplained activity and evidence observations.  In real time sightings, sounds and experiences can be noted, questioned and put forward as explained or not.

In the séance there is an emphasis not only on the objects but the type of appeal that they may have.  There are several particular objects that are known to be liked and even loved by children and these were put out on a table.  Everything else was checked, noted and visible to all who sat.  The members were oddly aware of the younger spirits who had been noticed because of the messages that had started to come through.  The medium referred specifically to several individual children in spirit and they had exact messages to give to sitters.  It was as these references were being made that noises were heard from the objects that had been put out.  The noises were quite interesting because of the loudness of them and also intriguing as that they continued for a little while.  It was useful to be able to see the objects as the noises were being heard.  The messages were validated by members and were summarised to have relevance both for them as individuals and the objects from which noises were heard.  There was nothing that could have set off the noises in or outside the room nor should the sounds have come from the objects themselves and as such they could be categorised as unexplained.

Messages were noted from other notable spirits to members but it was interesting that younger spirits did come through, in what was not noted as quite eagerly, to the séance first.  The medium talked of a male spirit, information was given of someone thought to be Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn 15 July 1606 – 4 October 1669) a Dutch draughtsman, a painter and a print maker.  In life he was an innovative and prolific master in three media.  In the séance the name was spoken of and a keen person who was able to be innovative and yet traditional at heart.  He is generally considered one of the greatest visual artists in the history of that particular field.  He is thought to be the most important artistic individual in Dutch art history.  Unlike most Dutch masters of the 17th century, Rembrandt’s work depict a wide range of style and subject matter, from portraits, self-portraits, to genre scenes, landscapes, allegorical and historical scenes, biblical and mythological themes.  Rembrandt was able to depict many scenes and animal studies.  His contributions to art came in a period of great wealth and cultural achievement that historians call the Dutch Golden Age.  Particularly Dutch painting was contributed to by him.  Although in many ways antithetical to the Baroque style that dominated Europe, he was extremely prolific and innovative, and gave rise to important new genres.  It is known that like many artists of the Dutch Golden Age, such as Jan Vermeer of Delft, Rembrandt was also known as an avid collector of artIn the séance the male spirit spoke of his love of capturing beauty be it on a page, wall, book or in his heart.  He felt that images could make a memory book of life and from your earliest memories of important people, places to that of the events that make up your latter life, each image has its own story to tell.

Emotion through art seemed to be an important concept as a bit later in the séance another male spirit came into the members’ awareness because of his allusion to a circus, brothers and comedy.  He talked of being able to bring about laughter on a whim.  It was through the ability to perform with all of his body that he could make multiple audiences laugh.

There were several poignant references and messages that were validated by members.  Unexplained activity was noted and this was in the sounds that were heard and Orbs or unexplained lights that were seen.  On inspection and investigation of the room and surrounding area there was nothing that could explain why those occurrences were noted as they had been.
