A physical séance into spirit activity.

Interesting was the word used to define the recent physical séance.  The investigation into spirit activity was one which had many intriguing links to people, to a nation and to common interests.

William IV (William Henry; 21 August 1765 to 20 June 1837) was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Ireland and King of Hanover from 26 June 1830 until his death in 1837.  The third son of George III, he was the younger brother and successor to George IV, he was the last king and penultimate monarch of Britain’s House of Hanover.  William IV was the name link in the séance for a male spirit who had lived a life as a leader, who had known life from a point of principle and who had lived with a love for the finery that could be an experience of life.

In the physical séance the investigation was able to note several orbs – little unexplained lights in the room.  These lights were seen for a period of about two to three minutes.  There was a coolness in the séance and an odd white light which was seen by several of the members.  The medium spoke of William who loved the sea, who knew what it was to be in confrontation and who knew that life needed beauty.  It seemed as if the medium emphasised the point that this man loved the beauty in life, the freedom the sea could give one.  Research into William has indicated that as an individual this was a person who served in the Royal Navy in his youth and was, both during his reign and afterwards, nicknamed as the “Sailor King”.  It was noted he served in North America and the Caribbean, but saw little actual fighting.  In 1789 he was created as the Duke of Clarence and St Andrews.  Since his two older brothers passed without leaving legitimate issue, he inherited the throne when he was 64 years old.  In the séance the spirit was claimed to refer to legalities, the finer working of society.  One has to neglect the age old cultural procession and make a mark for the right of the man, woman and child of our land.  It was noted that in life his reign saw several reforms: the poor law was updated, child labour restricted, slavery abolished in nearly all the British Empire and the British electoral system was refashioned by the Reform Act 1832.  In the séance the spirit talked of life and fine intricate necessities, there is a lot of strife, difficulty to be endured but one has to look past the difficulty to see what life can be.  Though William did not engage in politics as much as his brother or his father he was the last monarch who chose a prime minister contrary to the will of Parliament.  Through his brother who was, the Viceroy of Hanover, he granted his German kingdom a short-lived liberal constitution.

At the time of his death William had no surviving legitimate children but he was survived by eight of the ten illegitimate children he had by the actress Dorothea Jordan, with whom he had cohabited for twenty years.  William was succeeded in the United Kingdom by his niece, Victoria, and it was that in Hanover his brother, Ernest Augustus I was able to take on as leader.  In the séance the spirit referred to his opinion as law, one has to put effort into what they do, shape the laws according to how it will be of benefit for a nation.

Wilhelm Richard Wagner (22 May 1813 – 13 February 1883) he was a German composer, a theatre director, a conductor and polemicist who is primarily known for his operas (as some of his later works were later known, “music dramas”).  Wagner has appeared in this blog only a few weeks ago.  Wilhem which is also the German tie to the English William was noted in the séance alongside William IV at a point that information was being referred to about who these people were in life, what they were like as individuals.  Both the two William individuals as spirits talked of lives which had to have beauty.  Beauty in music was important the spirits stated.  Wagner was not like most opera composers, Wagner wrote both the libretto and the music for each of his stage works.  Initially establishing his reputation as a composer of works in the romantic vein of Weber and Meyerbeer, it was interesting as the medium spoke of the spirit link the information about William IV and Wilhem was remarkably connected.  Wagner revolutionised opera through his concept of the Gesamtkunstwerk, by which he sought to synthesise the beauty of the poetic, visual, musical and dramatic arts.

Lauren Bacall (born Betty Joan Perske; September 16, 1924 – August 12, 2014) was an American actress.  Known for her distinctive voice and seductive looks, she was named the 20th greatest actress of the 20th century by the American Film Institute and received an Academy Honorary Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.  In the séance the female spirit was noted after that of the speeches of the two first male spirits.  There was a little while where members commented on the coolness of the room which seemed icy, there was an odd cracking noise which appeared to be coming from one of the objects.  There was no explanation for the coolness or the noise.  The medium spoke of a female spirit, there was a man in spirit with her, someone whom had a lot of affection for her and had to talk about her.  His words to the séance were: She had a loving heart, a passion unlike many had seen and an ambition to take over the film industry as a female representative of a forgotten time when class had its own importance.  Lively and with opinions, she often could see beauty in a somewhat difficult world.

The statement about the beauty in difficulty was interesting as all three spirits in the séance referred to this connection.  The activity in the séance was notable for the orbs, the temperature and the noises which were noted by the members and which concluded a few minutes before the last spirit was claimed to have left the séance.  The two first male spirits were similarly linked for the interests they had in life, the dates of their life and their links to Germany as a nation.  The last female spirit was of interest as a depiction of her through love was somewhat a reference of one individual from two spirits.  There were times of interest, information in the reference of lives and action from all three of the spirits who were notable for their love of the arts.
