Spirit of Rosa Parks séance.

Those readers who will have read our last blog related to our most recent séance will know that Harriet Beecher Stowe appeared as the main link for our research.  Her little boy was also the cause of a lot of intrigue and shock as we had materialisation of what is thought to be his hand and arm part way through the sitting, we had odd light sightings, unexplained noises and a number of interestingly validated spirit activity claims.  Harriet Beecher Stowe is of course known for her work into helping to abolish slavery, it was her aims to negate racial prejudice which linked her to the hearts and minds of many nations and it is interesting this séance focuses on one Rosa Parks, another lady who worked to help the same cause.  While it is not known why two séance had two similar experiences of spirit, the link is there and what happened is noted for you.

It is by far the activity in a physical séance which requires investigation, analysis and opinion.  In this last séance there was no lack of physical activity, from a few minutes in the temp of the room was icy as if someone had flicked on a freezing fog machine, members were so cold that they had the hairs on the back of their arms stand up.  Members also noted that blue coloured lights were apparent in vast numbers, some of the sitters stated they could see blue stripes of light and while not everyone saw the longer lines of blue light, almost all the members were attesting to the small blue lights which are thought to have been orbs.

The medium who was sitting started to talk of a lady, a female spirit and the word of race.  At first, sitters thought it was an athlete linked word and that race was to do with something physical but it was noted that this was incorrect.  One member of the séance asked out loud if it was an athlete type of race and there was a loud crack which ran across the room from one side to another.  It was an unexplained noise as there was nothing in the room to have caused it and it sounded as if it had come from where members were sitting.  The medium said No it was race as the spirit was saying racial, we are not to be counted out by our nations due to our race.

Rosa Louise McCauley Parks (February 4, 1913 – October 24, 2005) was the lady who is thought appeared in the séance as she mentioned a number of incidents which match with that of Rosa’s accounted life.  In the séance a bus was noted, as was signs and pickets with words on and the word park was referenced by the spirit although it was later known to be Parks, a surname.  Rosa was an African-American Civil Rights activist, whom the United States Congress thought of as a first lady and someone of whom the civil rights movement took direction and she was thought of as an individual who had liberty at her heart.  Rosa Parks is thought of as the mother linked to the freedom movement and it is interesting that her appearance in spirit was on a date which is less than two weeks, in actual fact only 4 days from when the anniversary of her birthday, on February 4, will be commemorated.  Rosa’s birthday and the day she was arrested, December 1, have both become Rosa Parks Day, commemorated in two states of America.

In the séance members sat and noted as the medium spoke of the lady in front of her in spirit.  She was a lady who would like to talk.  Words were important as it was in the few, the little amount said from one person, that little amount can shape the future.  In life we have to fight to live, to view, to think, to do.  It is doing and saying what you know to be right that means the light of day might once more lead us to do good, say what we have in our hearts and do right by our fellow man.  It was as the words were being said that one of the members who was watching for physical activity sounded shocked at something, all in the room, then became aware of a white outline forming in front of the medium.  It was only a half a shape and it was not all that clear, it was what looked to be the outline of half a person, while the gender could not be told as there was only a white light it was the size and proportion of a person standing in front of the séance.  It was a shock, it was difficult to investigate as it lasted only a short while but it is interesting that it occurred in front of the séance.

It was On December 1, 1955, that Parks refused to obey bus driver James F. Blake’s order to give up her seat in the coloured section to a white passenger, after the white section was filled.  Parks was not the first person to resist bus segregation but her act was one which defined opinion, it showed racial prejudice for what it was and it was a timely act.  Others had taken notably similar steps as Rosa Parks, including Bayard Rustin in 1942, Irene Morgan in 1946, Sarah Louise Keys in 1955, and the members of the Browder v. Gayle lawsuit (Claudette Colvin, Aurelia Browder, Susie McDonald, and Mary Louise Smith) who were arrested in Montgomery months before Parks.  It is her achievement because of who she was that had Rosa altering the views of many and it was her own personal loss in life of her job and other societal benefits which had an effect on a stance for national freedom. In the séance the members claimed hearing a voice, a quiet almost muted at times series of words from a female and it was detected to one side of one of the members in a part of the room which was icy to the touch but from where no explanation of the sound could be found.

In the séance members sat and listened as the voice continued for a while, there were knocks and taps heard in the room and in what one may say was an odd sort of pattern of sound but interestingly it was as the voice stopped that the temp fluctuation also was noted to revert to normal.  NAACP organizers thought that Parks was the best candidate for seeing through a court challenge after her arrest for civil disobedience in violating the state’s segregation laws, although eventually her case became bogged down in the state courts while the Browder v. Gayle case succeeded.

Parks’ act of defiance and what is called the Montgomery Bus Boycott became important symbols of what is the modern Civil Rights Movement, as it was an act unlike anything ever seen.  Rosa became an international icon of resistance to racial segregation and it is in her address to the séance members, her wording of freedom for the two races, her speech on the rights of a society which linked her to the research which was done and the claim that it was the spirit of Rosa Parks in the séance.  Rosa organized, collaborated and helped with civil rights leaders, including that of Edgar Nixon, Presidents, president of the local chapter of the NAACP; and Martin Luther King, Jr., who at the time was a new minister in town who gained national prominence in the civil rights movement.

The séance was one which emotionally did strike the hearts of all the members.  The wording, the actions of the orbs, the noises and the materialisation were all timely and I have to admit they did act in unison with what was being retold in reference of the struggle for racial freedom.  When the séance ended members were shocked by the materialisation. While the research is done, the links noted, the physical séance having been investigated the public opinion is still a question of experience, sense and what one objectively views to be right.  There was a definitive amount of activity, information which could be linked in date and reference to events and above all the passion and sentiment of the wording in the séance had all the members entranced.
