The sitting began as usual, in total blackout with music playing in the background.
The first communicator, known to the sitters for many years, came through after several minutes. A series of the questions and answers then followed. Abstracts of that conversion are presented below in italic:
When asked about the future…
We can see a certain distance down your path, but the path has many obstacles …you can walk around, climb over or sometimes fall over these obstacles. These obstacles can alter your path. You all have a goal in your physical lives …one that was decided before you came here, and one that drives you forward …. You will find out what it was, when you arrive back home.
…You are here for the experience of the journey….
Everything that happens to you – it is not beyond your control. You have all the tools necessary to manage all that appears to be in your way. Use these obstacles as a chance to learn and grow. See the lesson in all that is presented to you… time here is precious – a chance to learn and grow.
Do you have Free Will (with regard to returning to physical life)?
Of course. We have free will to do as we like…we can choose whether to return to a physical experience on earth or whether to remain ‘here’.
What advice can you give us?
See the lesson in all that is presented to you. Learn to value where you are now and appreciate all that you have. There are many that focus on what they do not have – they forever wish for more. How can they possibly appreciate more when they cannot appreciate all that is around them in the present moment.
A sitter expressed the desire to help someone known to them
To aid another is the most honourable of activities you can manage on the earth plain. To deal with all the obstacles that present themselves to you, and yet find the time to help another is, a precious rarity. However it is not your job to help others. The ultimate responsibility for that person’s growth rests firmly with that individual.
…I could speak a million words of advice to you this evening, my friends, but it is, of course, your own free will to determine what you do with those words…
A discussion then followed about people passing to Spirit with no spiritual belief:
Quite often it will take a long time when they arrive from your world…they are gently helped along the way and looked after until such a time as they shed their earthly mindset and they re-engage once again with the energy that they left.
The materialistic based physical world in which you now live is so very tempting for many to hang on to. Many are unable to move on straight away….generations may pass.
Do those that do not settle in straight away notice the time it takes?
There is no time…it (time) is only noticed on your side.
Would a 30 year timescale for a non believer be noticed?
They would have no concept of time.
Scientists are questioning time….
Time is merely a linear structure that you have imposed upon yourselves – you look forward and you look back, but so very rarely do you stop and look where you are in the present. In our energetic existence – imagine yourself standing in the centre of a globe…you can look forward or back but you can also look upwards or downwards – you have the ability to move wherever you should wish to be.
Can you go backwards in time?
Indeed you could experience the past, as much as you experience the present day. You can revisit the past as a memory or as a physical experience …
The communicator left, and a few minutes later, another, also known to the sitters, came forward to speak.
This communicator described making smoke in the room, and the sitters confirmed that they could smell smoke, as if from a fire. The ‘smoke’ was seen billowing from the top of the séance trumpet, positioned in front of the cabinet, which was seen to ‘wobble’, and change shape.
The communicator stated that they would make the smoke rise to the ceiling, and create shapes within it – this visual effect was confirmed by the sitters. The communicator then stated that they’d bring the ‘smoke’ back to eye level, in front of the closed cabinet curtains, and again, create shapes within it. Again, this was confirmed by the sitters.
After this communicator left, the main communicator from Spirit side, requested that the cabinet curtains were opened. Energy was seen to build up around the face of the medium, and various faces were seen*. The mediums hands were raised during this time, which appeared to change shape, and their fingers were seen to grow much longer than they are ‘normally’.
The séance ended after approximately 1.5 hours.
*It is hoped to begin photographing these faces later on in the year.
