Séance report 10/1/17 – 16 sitters – medium Gary Mannion – 1hr 42 min. – ( 1hr 35min. in consistent lightened conditions) fully recorded and transcribed.
After séance protocol was followed, the séance started in the dark with 2 songs to relax the medium.
After 5 minutes into the séance a loud rattling of the cabinet could be heard and Jimmy comes through and requests blue light at half intensity, which allows all sitters to be seen within the séance room.
As the sitters continue to sing a harmonica is played in the cabinet. The harmonica had been retrieved byspirit from a box that was situated one metre away from the cabinet (this was later confirmed by the spirit team). The harmonica sound became louder progressively and was in unison with the singing. During question time a sitter asked who was playing the harmonica. Jimmy stated that this was someone unknown to us.
The cabinet was spun around in a very rapid manner clockwise and seen by all sitters. A cool breeze, created by the movement, was felt around the whole room and much appreciated by the sitters.
The sound of shoed footsteps stomping was heard from within the cabinet (our medium wears socks on his feet only).
Circle leader stated that cameras were available outside the circle and Jimmy answered: “we do want to work with your technology and when we get permission we definitely ask. I am aware that a lot of experiments will be done in home circle setting. What have you got with you tonight?” Researcher states what is available. Jimmy: “I am aware we are trying to attempt some experiments we tried in our last sitting (8/1/17) as we were quite happy with the results. We are going to try to keep in lightened conditions as much as possible as well. Which is one of the things were trying in going forward as well.” At this point it must be noted that the light has been on continuously since first requested at the start of the séance.
Trumpet heard ‘tapping’ from inside the cabinet. The cabinet tilts backwards lifting the front off the ground about 12 inches. Jimmy asks to increase the intensity of the blue light, then asks to swap to red light. Sitters in the back of the room commented that they are unable to see. Circle leader and Jimmy discuss the moving of the light to enhance visibility. Some of the sitters in the front of the room observed 2 sets of feet in the cabinet. 2 large feet at the outside and 2 small feet in the middle which moved in a tapping motion in a clockwise direction. Jimmy:” hello, miss circle leader. You may adjust your light (position) and I ask you to swap it over to the blue light.” The sitters comment “maybe white ectoplasm for the small feet or the medium wearing white socks would help”. Cabinet lowered for approx. 10 seconds. Cabinet lifted in the front by about 12 inches again, revealing the 2 sets of feet, but this time the small feet were next to each other and illuminated for all to observe. The sitters in the front could clearly distinguish the small feet while a few sitters in the back saw it as a blob of illuminous ectoplasm. The cabinet was lowered about 2 inches then lifted and seemed to play like ‘peek-a-boo’. Cabinet lowered back to floor.
Jimmy; ”Did you see the difference between the white and the black? The white we did in contrast , so you could see both. Now, otherwise with the white ectoplasm it is easier to see, but with this experiment, as it is still new, it is easier (for us) to work with the black ectoplasm. And indeed, we want to work with your cameras and we want the child dancing around here in the cabinet, we need to work with the black ectoplasm. But did you notice where we use the black ectoplasm how it absorbs the light photons? Please decrease the light a bit there now. Have you got any questions?”
Sitter: “With the white ectoplasm, when the light hits it and absorbs it, is that bad for the medium because it sucks the heat from the light?” Jimmy: “In essence the white ectoplasm is safer ectoplasm. In order to make it luminous we coat it with photoplasm, which allows it to take upon itself the light photons. So in regards tosafety it is a lot gentler to the medium. However, for this experiment to work with this technology (camera) we get a better result working with the black ectoplasm.” Sitter:-”Because it is raw ectoplasm, do you have to be careful when you move the medium?” Jimmy: “Indeed, with this experiment, at this time of the night, the medium’s mind and body gets tired. This is the reason why we try to cram as much of these experiments into the short time and energy we have. I apologize that everything is a bit rushed tonight and we are not giving you periods in between to discuss, but we are trying to do as much as we can and again, by speaking to you now, I am speaking to you a lot faster than I am used to. Again, I am not getting the full control of the medium's mind that I like, so it is much easier for me to impart my thoughts in a much quicker form, if that makes sense to you. Now we go straight into the next experiment. Keep your lights on”.
The ectoplasm drawn from the medium can be heard loudly from the cabinet. A hand emerges from the cabinet making full circular motions outside the cabinet. Some sitters at the back stated it is not very clear and Jimmy invites them to come and sit in front of the cabinet and for the light to be adjusted to increase visibility. Sitters observe now a white blob of ectoplasm coming from the cabinet with ‘knobs’ on it, which then elongate and form into fingers. A second hand emerges also which is black, once again with ‘knobs’ which elongate into fingers. Sitters comment on the brightness in the room and appreciate how easy it is to see the phenomena unfolding. Hands withdraw back into the cabinet and ectoplasm is heard being withdrawn. Another hand appears through the opened gap in the top of the cabinet and this time it is a significantly smaller hand. Then a black hand slides underneath this white hand and it is noted that both hands are left hands. Hands recede back into the cabinet. The sitters return to their seats in the back, which they find easier now than in the past, as the light is now on.
Jimmy: ”In the future we will attempt to leave the light on from the moment the medium is tied up till the end of the séance.” A sitter asked about us moving around in the room today. Jimmy:” it depends on what we are doing because we keep the energy very much contained in the cabinet, so it doesn’t affect us.”
Next, a face imprint is impressed through the cabinet top mesh and a face and shoulders are observed. Then a trumpet is seen and a voice box is formed at the end of the trumpet for all to see through the mesh. A spirit person is heard to speak softly through the voice box and trumpet. All sitters can hear a few words, but most of it is too soft. Trumpet falls to the floor with a bang. Jimmy:” We trying to show you a voice box, and at this time we were just trying to show it more clearly. We trying to get it out of the cabinet as well. We would like to show you the voice box and the voice box working. You need to observe when we trying to move the sound to see the voice box expanding, like an instrument on your side of life when the movement creates the vibration to create the sound. When we create a voice box we have to stretch it in order to create sound that is audible and understandable to your side of life and then we let the intelligence from our side of life to work with it. Sitter asks how a voice box is actually created. Jimmy:” An ectoplasmic substance is produced from the medium’s body and it is created into a substance which then is inspired by the personality or intelligence to create what we want it to do.”
Sitter asks if voice box is formed from photoplasm. Jimmy:” It can be done, yes, however we have much more control with ectoplasm, which is why the photos in your past have always been done with black ectoplasm. We don’t always coat it with photoplasm because it would require a lot more energy to work with it. Indeed, if we start coating with photoplasm, it may affect the vibration and the sound. But eventually we would like to be able to show you. So indeed, what we showed you then was partly coated in photoplasm or else we would not have been able to show it to you at all. If we keep working with light as this, and the medium is letting us sit like this, then we might get to the stage where the light does not affect us so much. This is one of the reasons we keep the light on.”
