Home circle.

Here is a summary of our home circle.

Home circle held 15th May 2018.

Many people will have heard of a séance, but notions on it can differ and vastly altered can be the actual experiences of them.  A physical séance specifically looks out for overt and unexplained activity.  These can be in the forms of a sighting or visual unexplained activity, audio or claims of a sensory experience.  An investigation was made into a most recent physical séance and these were the notes on what occurred.

The séance was held in a prepared room that was easily visible and checked prior to the investigation.  Members sat and the medium began to display a closed eyes trance.  It was a few minutes later that there were depictions of individuals seen in spirit and subsequently messages that came through from spirits to particular sitters.  Information contained within the messages was specific and identifiable by the recipients.

Smells could be noted and this was an activity that required further investigation.  At a precise moment in the séance a spirit was spoken of and at that time a significant smell could be noted at first lightly and then stronger.  The smell was recognisable and explained as reminiscent of that of a face cream that the lady in spirit often had used in life.  When this was spoken of, it was a few minutes later that the smell slowly disappeared from the séance.

The medium spoke of an Arthur, a theatrical person and links were made as for someone believed to be a Stan Laurel (born Arthur Stanley Jefferson; 16 June 1890 – 23 February 1965) an English comic actor, a film director and writer, who was part of the comedy duo Laurel and Hardy.  He appeared with his comedy partner Oliver Hardy in 107 short films, in cameo roles and feature films.  In the séance the gentleman made a reference to a desire to be noted for an anniversary.  He was keen to appear as smiling and eager to have his penchant for collecting and tidy memorabilia noted.  Neatness was mentioned and he brought up a love for outdoors, flowers and lazily now taking in the wide beauty of the land.

The medium talked of a lady in spirit and she was keen to refer to a gentleman and his anniversary.  It is thought that from the references the gentleman is one Laurence Kerr Olivier, Baron Olivier, OM (22 May 1907 – 11 July 1989) an English actor and director who, along with his contemporaries such as Ralph Richardson and John Gielgud, dominated the British stage of the mid-20th century.  He also worked in films throughout his career, he has played in more than fifty cinema roles.  It was later in his career that he had considerable success in television roles.  In the séance the gentleman was noted as quiet but determined and this ability to be persistent was a trait that he felt carried through in many aspects of his work.

The séance did observe a lot of speech-based activity.  In the depictions and messages validations could be made, and in the smell that was noted, explanation gained through sitters who could recognise the scent.  An investigation is interested in the activity itself and the possible causes for it.  No object or cause as for the smell could be found as having come from inside or outside of the séance room.  Nobody was wearing anything that could have been mistaken for a similar scent.  The timing did bring about suggestions as for significance because of the noted smell and the spirit speech having displayed at the same time.  The séance was full and despite several quieter moments when there was silence, the medium reported visual and personality-based references.  The investigation was able to explore and research several of the links successfully.  A point of reference did appear in that of the theatre which seemed to link both the latter publicly known figures.  Members claimed that they could note both personal and pertinent messages for them.
