Finished the 8-week phenomenon circle this past week. Good times! There were four of us that sat for two hours weekly. Yes, the group was small, but it was huge.
The reason Spiritualist do phenomenon circles is to prove the continuity of life, and that we did!
When I opened the door to Slater House in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, I greeted Mrs. Slater. Each time I set the room with sage and prayers. I bought a trumpet earlier this year for the phenomenon circle that was to start in March. Spirit time! In between then and the start of circle, I was gifted another trumpet. Just in case you are wondering, it is not the kind of trumpet you play; mine are silver and have three circular cones that collapse inside of one another. At the bottom of one of the trumpets is glow-in-the-dark band. We took turns bringing flowers in water to assist with raising the vibration. We sat in the dark with red lights turned low. A couple of times we saw the trumpet grow taller and one time it looked like it was going to fall but did not.
We saw spirit lights all over the place every single time we met. They danced on the floor and ceiling. I could see them on my chest when I looked downward. We decided it could be pixies and fairies since the Fairy Trail is right next to the Slater House. I sat in one of the comfy chairs and pulled the other one alongside of it. Most weeks a little girl sat in it. I did not see her, but everyone else could. She wore a white frilly dress with socks and shoes. One time I was told she was looking right at me. I turned and said, ‘hello.’ Then there was the parade of spirits up against the wall that was seen weekly by one of the participants. I could see them as well.
Yes, we heard raps and knocks. There were significant temperature changes several times, which is an indication of spirit presence. The lights would shine brighter and then lower. No, it was not the heat turning on and off. We thought of that. Trust me when I say, ‘It’s good to be a skeptic.’
Before we started that last night, I let the spirits know that we would not be back. They crowded in. We could see and sense them. The air was full. I think they loved to come around to hear our stories of other phenomenon that had occurred in our lives. When the energy lulled, we knew this time with spirit was ending – ‘til next time.
Peace, Joy, Love and Light
