I’m so excited to have started my phenomena circle in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp. There’s seven, plus myself and we sat for our first gathering earlier this week. We’re in the Séance Room, which came about when Colby Memorial Temple was built in 1926. Imagine the energy in that space!
Yes, normally it takes lots of time to build the energy, but since we are in the room we are in, there’s plenty of residual energy. We saw Spirit lights, heard a couple of raps and took turns sitting in the cabinet under a red light for transfiguration, which is when the face changes over and over again because of ectoplasm. Ectoplasm comes from the eyes, nostrils, ears and mouth of the medium and others in the group.
Backstory: During my last phenomena circle, everyone saw a large diamond shaped fluorescent blue light. Not to be outdone 50 or so fluorescent blue orbs appeared and floated toward the person sitting. Amazingness!!! When I recalled the story at a cookout, I joked: ‘Who did that?’
To be true phenomena, more than one person must see it.
We will be doing table tipping in probably class three or four. Listen, I’ve always been a skeptic in regard to table tipping. It’s good to be skeptical.
Whenever I attend a table tipping, I always watch to see if the medium is moving the table. So, when I did my first table tipping, I prayed.
Backstory: Sure enough, that table tipped, not hugely but enough to know it was real. The next thing I knew I saw a vision that the table was going to start spinning. I told everyone to stand up and push their chairs back. Moments later that table was spinning and for quite some time.
We will also be doing work in the cabinet, which is a rectangular shaped area that is able to be enclosed by curtains on each side. We will close the curtain to build the ectoplasm. When the curtain is pulled back, we hope that the ectoplasm built will form into a Spirit. Oh, I have seen that before.
Backstory: I was at a Wednesday Night Message Service to receive a reading from the medium. When he came to me, a full masculine figure appeared – smoky, kind of foggy looking – behind the medium. Amazingness! I’m not sure if anyone else saw it. I certainly did.
The reason I do phenomena circles and write about them is to remind everyone that there is more than meets the eye, that life continues after we leave this earth plane.
You could do your own phenomena circle. Decide how often you are going to sit and with the same people if possible. The room should be dark with no white light coming in. Bring fresh flowers and water to assist in raising the vibration and energy. It might take a little longer to build the energy for the phenomena. Don’t give up – it will happen!
By the way, I just know this is going to be a great circle. I did a Skype meet-and-greet before the class was to come together. A handful of us made it and then out of nowhere an echo came after everyone who spoke. Great phenomena!
Blessings of Peace and Love!
