Home circle.

Here is a summary of our home circle.

Home circle held 20th November 2018.

A physical séance was attended by experienced members and medium. In this investigation into the experiences and observations of the séance, notes were made on what happened and the conclusions that were drawn from them.

Smells were strongly depicted by the séance. The scents that were suddenly noticeable and then disappeared again, each lasted while acknowledgement of them was made and on one occasion the smell continued for a more considerable length of time. The scent was spoken about and validated as extremely relevant for certain members. They talked about the smell as being particular and as having had meaning for someone known to them in spirit.

Messages were passed between several spirits to the members and this was via the medium. The information on each occasion was in-depth and could be validated by the recipients.

References were made as for a lady and a writer. More information was given about someone thought to be Mary Anne Evans (22 November 1819 – 22 December 1880; alternatively Mary Ann or Marian), known by her pen name George Eliot, an English novelist, journalist, poet, translator, and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. Gentle in personality and smiling in her appearance, the lady in spirit was described and then links about her came into the séance. A lot of the difficulties in life, the spirit explained, she could dissipate into writing. Hard or complex notions became less so with a little delve into the thought processes that had put them there. Beauty was aesthetic but she described it as also present in the determination that one has to succeed. In research performed after the séance it was found out that Mary Evans, also known as George Eliot, significantly contributed to English Literature and penned several novels. Her novels are often set in provincial England and known for their realism. She is acknowledged with including within her writing interesting, psychological insight. An anniversary was mentioned as important for the lady in spirit.

The séance was able to note detailed messages. In each instance it was useful to be able to not only listen to the links, references and information about the spirit and speech but to also hear why the message was important. Later on in the séance personal acknowledgement could be given about the emotive meaning as for the smells that were depicted. In terms of the investigation it was significant that the smells could be noticed by the members in a collective group, and despite the personal identification as for the meaning of them, the physical occurrence was not as easy to explain. There were no physical causes inside or outside of the séance room as for why those particular scents should have been noted at those precise times. Everything was fully visible throughout the whole séance and every effort was taken to obtain a level of objectivity throughout the proceedings.
