Journal of séance on August 19th 2004
On Thursday 19th August 2004, Ron Gilkes was delighted to welcome Stewart Alexander accompanied by some of his circle members, June and Ray Lister, and Katie Halliwell to Jenny's Sanctuary. Ray presented the pre-séance briefing in the reception area, after which the customary searches took place followed by the seating of the sitters in the séance room. Stewart's arms were bound to the arms of his chair using plastic cable ties and luminous tabs were placed on his knees. The curtains of the cabinet were left open, the lights extinguished and an opening prayer offered by Ray.
The first communicator to speak through Stewart was one of his guides, White Feather. He complemented the truly excellent conditions which would allow the removal of the barrier between our two worlds for a short while. Christopher, a young boy of 6½ was the next to introduce himself to sitters and was thrilled to see such "a proper crowd" of people! He explained that it was his job to relax people and that energy would be taken from certain sitters during the evening to help with the production of the phenomena. To much laughter he added that he couldn't guarantee that people would get the same bit of energy back that was taken from them, which might mean some would skip out of the séance room after, and some would crawl!
After Christopher's departure, Walter Stinson greeted the 40 or so sitters present and also commented on the wonderful atmosphere. He went on to pay tribute to Ron Gilkes on behalf of the world of Spirit and all those who work with and through Stewart, for this meeting place, which he said was a halfway house between the 2 worlds, where the work of the Great Spirit continues week by week, month by month and year by year and where the world of eternal life is always welcome.
Walter was delighted to see so many lady sitters present emphasising the fact that even though he has been "dead" for almost 100 years, he does not have a halo or wings, and is still very much a man who enjoys nothing better than the sight of a well turned ankle and a pretty face! He stressed that we are all part of the human race, the only difference between us and those in the Spirit world being that their perspective on life is now a little broader.
One lucky lady sitter was invited by Walter to sit in the chair to the right of Stewart and take hold of Stewart's right hand with her left. Walter asked her to gently feel for the cable tie binding Stewart's arm to the arm of the chair and check that it was still secure. A few seconds after this had been established, the lady announced that even though she was still holding Stewart's hand, their hands were now lifted up in
mid air! Walter invited her to reach for the cable tie on the chair arm, and she told us that the cable tie was still intact, which was indeed plain for all to see when the red light was turned on. Amazingly Walter had clearly demonstrated the passage of living matter (Stewart's arm) through matter (plastic cable tie)! Walter continued by saying that what we had witnessed was no party trick and not a miracle, but merely an example of what the Spirit world can do when people gather together in love and a suitable medium is available.
The passage of living matter through matter was demonstrated for a second time with another lady sitter holding Stewart's hand throughout. This lady was also presented with the cable tie that had been restraining Stewart's arm, still completely intact after a 3rd demonstration of the passage of living matter through matter, and during which she had had her fingers on the cable tie the whole time! Walter then took a spare strap from the table and replaced it around Stewart's arm binding him to the chair. The clicking sound of the strap's self-locking plastic fastener could be clearly heard as it was being applied. When the red light was turned on to guide the lady sitter back to her place, on the table we could see that Walter had also fastened the other 2 spare straps and looped them together. He asked that these be given as a gift to Ron Gilkes as a reward from the Spirit world.
Stewart was then brought out of trance by his Spirit friends so that he too could witness the trumpet phenomena. Sitters were delighted to be able to see 2 trumpets being manipulated separately, gently touching some of the sitters and also flying up to ceiling level. After a short while our Spirit friends placed one trumpet inside the other and lifted the 2 together as if they were one! Stewart was fully aware and joining in with the conversation while this was taking place.
Towards the end of the trumpet display, Stewart and the circle members could hear the sound of breathing alongside Stewart in the cabinet. Stewart was taken back into trance, and "The Voice" as the Spirit speaker is affectionately called, addressed everyone independently of Stewart, using an ectoplasmic voice mechanism. He urged all that were developing gifts of the Spirit to continue with their development, and to be assured that those in the Spirit world are taking every opportunity that they can to help develop those channels of communication in the best way possible.
Freda Johnson was the next communicator and she spent a little time carefully explaining how she is able to speak to everyone through Stewart. She went on to affect a reunion between one of the lady sitters and her Father in the Spirit world, by helping the gentleman communicate through Stewart. Everyone witnessed an emotional and evidential conversation between the pair, with the lady sitter's Mother also coming through briefly with a few words.
Walter returned and asked Ray to prepare the small table situated in front of Stewart. This was a glass topped table, covered with a red cloth and slightly illuminated from underneath by a bulb on a dimmer control. A lady sitter was invited to sit at one end of the table, where coming from Stewart's direction she witnessed gentle clouds of white ectoplasm moving across the table, out of which a perfectly formed and solid hand emerged. The hand reached across the table, held her hand and audibly slapped it! This was repeated for another lady sitter to enjoy, and Stewart was brought out of his trance so that he too could witness this wonderful phenomena.
Just as he said he was feeling wide awake, Stewart was quickly taken back into trance by his Spirit friends who also closed the curtains on the cabinet. Ray encouraged everyone to sing to raise the vibrations, and loud knocking was heard coming from the cabinet. A materialised Spirit person emerged from the cabinet and proceeded to touch the heads and hands of some of the sitters as he moved around the room. He returned to the cabinet briefly before approaching one of the sitters and clasping her firmly by the hands to stand her up. He then placed his hands on her back to administer her with healing energy. Our Spirit visitor returned to the cabinet and brought Stewart out of his trance. The sound of the curtains on the cabinet being opened startled Stewart, but then he felt the Spirit visitor's hands on his head and arms, and we all heard the unmistakable sound of the plastic cable tie's self-locking mechanism being tightened! Stewart said that he actually felt the Spirit visitor's fingers as they were adjusting the strap!
With Stewart back in trance, the evening's proceedings started to draw to a close and Walter came once more encouraging all present to share what they had experienced with as many people as possible. Freda returned and thanked Ron for everything he does, followed swiftly by Christopher sending his love, with White Feather bringing the meeting to its conclusion.
A most wonderful evening of phenomena and proof that life is indestructible was enjoyed by all fortunate to have attended the séance. We are indebted to Stewart and the members of the Alexander Circle for their dedication, and for journeying down from Hull to allow us to be in such close contact with the world of Spirit.
