Home circle.

Here is a summary of our home circle.

Home circle held 31st July 2018.

This is the summary of what happened at a most recent physical séance. Members and medium all attended a carefully prepared room. Everything had been placed in a fully visible position for everybody to be able to take note of and see.

At the beginning of the séance the medium went into a closed eyes trance. Minutes in and messages were passed from claimed spirits to the specified sitters. Recipients could glean appearance depictions, specific personality trait references and then in-depth messages. Listened to and validated by members, these experiences were noted as an involved part of the seance.

Multiple spirits were seen at a time during the séance and this was intriguing because it allowed for several conversations between individuals. Older and younger in age, the spirits were able to refer to and link with members through personally relevant information messages.

The medium referred to a gentleman by the name of Cole and references were made as for someone thought to be a George Edward Cole, OBE (22 April 1925 – 5 August 2015) an English actor whose career spanned more than 70 years. He was best known for playing Arthur Daley in the long-running ITV comedy-drama show Minder and in the séance there was a link to this and to more comedic roles such as Flash Harry in the early St Trinian’s films. August was spoken of as significant and his appearance was detailed.

Ruth Elizabeth “Bette” Davis (April 5, 1908 – October 6, 1989) is believed to be the female spirit who was referenced. An American actress of film, television and theatre, in the séance she was seen and three was linked to as important among the links. Regarded as one of the greatest actresses in Hollywood history, she was noted for her willingness to play unsympathetic and sardonic characters. A mention was made for an important time for her at the beginning of the month of August. She was famous for her performances in a range of film genres, from contemporary crime melodramas to historical and period films. Starring in suspense horror, and occasional comedies, her greatest successes were her roles in romantic dramas.

Thomas Gainsborough FRSA (14 May 1727 (baptised) – 2 August 1788) was the third of the latter spirits referred to in the séance. Interestingly Richard was spoken of and then Gainsborough. Thomas Gainsborough was an English portrait and landscape painter, he was a draughtsman and printmaker. He went on to become the dominant British portraitist of the second half of the 18th century. Vision and looking beyond what people thought they saw on a surface value, the gentleman spirit spoke of this ability to pick up through paints the feeling of a landscape. He painted quickly, and the works of his maturity are characterised by a light palette and easy strokes. He preferred landscapes to portraits, and was found out after the séance in individual research to have been credited (with Richard Wilson) as the originator of the 18th-century British landscape school. Gainsborough was a founding member of the Royal Academy.

There were a great many references and a lot of information to specific individuals in spirit. The séance seemed to be split between the personal messages addressed to members and then the spirits who later spoke of preferences and lives more publicly heard about. In both cases there could be validations, either through responses from recipients of direct links or through a combination of notes and research based verification. Depictions were full and varied between speech and references to individual links. Members were able to listen and note how and what was given in terms of information throughout the séance.
