Séance is a term you don’t hear too much today. Anytime a group of people get together to contact the spirit world, you have what is known as a séance. For some reason this mediumship term has been moved into the background of our vocabulary. We now call these gatherings by a number of names, including message circles, message service, circle readings, group readings, or sittings.
Why the term faded away is difficult to say. The word’s usage declined between the 1920s and 50s, according to Google Books, but it is now beginning to have a resurgence. The word séance typically conjures the mental image of spiritualists sitting around a table in the dark, with candles, holding hands, with wispy apparitions of ghostly spirits floating above them.

When I am out walking with my dogs, I often feel as if the upper part of my body is being stretched and I am eight feet tall. When this happens, I get a sense of peace that everything is just as it’s meant to be, and that all will be well.
This past year or so, many customers have also shared with me how they too feel detached from their bodies as they go about their everyday lives. This does not just happen when they are having a conscious, or unconscious out-of-body experience.
Some teachings talk of how it is our very nature to constantly migrate away from our physical form, because we are actually omnipresent beings. My husband doesn’t think I am on this planet very often anyway, and perhaps he is right. But I must be omnipresent in order to get my everyday chores done! Read the rest of this entry »
Many of us have experienced how items have mysteriously moved in our environment, only to reappear in the most unexpected of places. Often these are trinkets, like jewelry which have special links to a loved one. Crystals and other precious stones are sometimes also moved around by spirit.
Whatever the items, they are often the ‘calling cards’ of a deceased loved one or a specific spirit guide. This puzzling phenomenon of an object disappearing, and then materializing out of thin air, is known as an apport. Spiritualism was at the height of its popularity in the late 1800s. Thousands of séances were being held all over the Western world. Much was also documented about apports, or gifts from the spirits: shells, small trinkets, fossils, coins, feathers, flowers, and even items previously mislaid by the attending sitters suddenly appearing in front of them.

In the study of Spiritualism, there are many words coined to cover conditions and manifestations out of the ordinary. Following are words and definitions of many of them:
1. Mediumship – The ability of human instruments to attune themselves to the vibrations of the spirit people and through peculiar chemical properties of their physical bodies to produce ectoplasm necessary for the manifestation of physical phenomena.
2. Clairvoyance – Clear seeing; soul seeing; lucidity; the ability to see with the spiritual eye those who have made the change called death and to see their names, messages and symbols written out in the ether. Read the rest of this entry »
Recently, after doing a psychic reading for a client who owns a Yoga studio, my mind roamed back many years to weekly Yoga classes I attended. The classes were given by the most wonderful lady who was 76 years ‘young’. She was vibrant and supple enough to make us younger ones look pathetic by comparison.
One evening our mentor invited us students to a ‘levitation’ demonstration and that was my very first experience of witnessing a person levitating in front of my eyes. Although there was a lead-up talk, prior to her levitation demonstration, all I recall seeing is that moment when she levitated from her horizontal position on the floor to the same position in a trance like state. She rose up and was suspended in the air at what appeared to be about 3 feet from the stage. Read the rest of this entry »
