February 2018

This past month has been a busy one for this medium developmentally.  The team has been pushing ahead with the voice box and also with the presentations of visual phenomena, which is an area that is becoming demonstrated more consistently.  These forms have therefore taken priority over any intended experimentation with the chalk board.  In fact when we sat this month with the offered chalk board in place we weren't at all surprised when we instead became treated to a range of vocalisations!

Information: Prior to, and during her séances recently the medium has been informed by her spirit team of the need to increase her fluid intake.  Currently she has been advised to drink a pint of warm water every half-hour in the two hours prior to sitting in séance, with extra intake immediately prior to sitting if she can manage it. 
More recently the medium has seen posts offered by another medium further developed than herself, who advises the fluid intake of 3 litres (5.2 pints) prior to sitting.

This period of experimentation was shared with myself and the medium, along with two established sitters and a guest. 
Once again the chalk boards were offered within the cabinet area as previously, and again without result...which is as one might expect (development takes time).

December 2017

Continuing our slate writing experiment, as further detailed within previous posts...this time the medium was seated, as previously, within the closed cabinet in blackout conditions.  The small table was placed to her left side, and upon this were placed three slates.  Under the guidance of her spirit team, on this occasion there were two large slates with, between them, a smaller one, along with a piece of limestone chalk.  The whole was sealed with a surround of masking tape, wrapped twice to ensure a true seal. 

The experimental séance lasted for almost an hour and during this period the mediums' level of consciousness varied.  For the most part she was aware of visual phenomena that was being presented to her within the closed cabinet area.  She saw figures and faces at this time, and was aware of conversations taking place between myself and her spirit team, although the communicated content was unknown to her.  Interestingly, after the séance she described seeing an upright lady in Victorian costume.  This aligned with a conversation that I'd shared with the spirit team, who said that a school teacher (Margaret, more familiarly known as Maggie) was attempting to effect a mark upon the chalk board, as she has previous historical experience of this.

The sitting was an interesting one, although upon closure when the chalk boards were examined no marks were apparent upon any surface.  This is no way negates the value nor interest of this experiment. 

This month has been a busy one.  The medium continues to sit regularly with focus upon her primary developmental intent, which is to further develop the voice box and the presentation of spiritually effected objective visual phenomena.  A few audio clips (recently recorded within the Lodge in blackout conditions) are offered here for your interest.

Healing is another area of this mediums' development, with specific guides having been working with the medium for some time prior to introducing themselves to me here.

Again, much like the slate writing experiment, this is another branch of her spirit teams developmental intent.

Art work is yet another element that holds the mediums' personal interest.  These paintings were effected recently whilst she was under trance control.

This second work was accompanied by these words 'To feel is to create Monet'
 
The feel is to create. To create is to give life a purpose, a meaning beyond which is more than can be known whilst here on this earth.  So many will be able to create their existence in the future.  Life is too limited at present. This will change as people realise their capacity to change that which is around them. Their lives will expand with their new found creative capacity.  Art is merely the start of this creative process.  Monet

November 2017

Following her initial return visit to the Lodge in August, the medium has continued to sit on a private basis with developmental intent for the demonstration of evidential physical mediumship.  This form of development has shown clear signs of advancement since August.

Due to her recent return to sitting within the Lodge environment we felt that various conditions were required to be stabilised before it became appropriate to continue with the new experiment, which is a 'sideline' and not intended as a diversion from her primary developmental intent (expressed by her dedicated weekly sittings). So...now in November...we felt the time to be right to sit together again with the designed boxes (as described and illustrated in the previous post). 

On this occasion we set up the sandwiched slates (with a piece of limestone pencil between) and then rested them upon the mediums lap.  The box (with two sheets of clean paper and a small piece of charcoal pencil laid inside) was placed upon a small table positioned to her left side.  We then opened the séance with a prayer of intent and she sat within the closed cabinet in blackout conditions for 40 minutes.  Her spirit team, after 35 minutes, asked for a further ten minutes, with closure of the séance to be effected thereafter. We therefore followed this offered guidance.

During the séance I was aware of various changes to the energy within the room, with some visual phenomena accompanying this. The music played in the background was mainly popular instrumental and chosen for its easy-listening familiarity.  Aside from the offered guidance from the spirit team very little additional communication took place.

After 50 minutes the séance came to a close, with the medium returning to full consciousness gradually within the following ten minutes. After the final closure of the séance we took both the box and the slates into the living room where we could properly study any evidential phenomena that might have been effected.  In this instance nothing evidentially conclusive had been demonstrated.

Note: This experiment is on-going.

The following day the medium and I sat together socially in daylight conditions, with art materials laid upon the dining room table.  Within a light trance state the medium experienced some spiritual influence over the movements of her hands, eyes and arms, whilst at the same time an element of transfiguration was witnessed. These two paintings were created during this period, each being  accompanied by a message.
To paint is the greatest gift to humankind. Preservation of time through art is a gift. M.

* The medium will continue to sit weekly on a private basis with dedicated developmental intent.  The next sitting for the additional experimentation is planned for mid December. 
Thank you for your interest.
