Phoenix Cirlce


Since 2010 physical mediumship entered my life. I have attended and experienced many séances with amazing physical mediums, but also have I experienced the downsides that disappointed me and made me sceptical and critical. The word “séance” comes from the French language and means: sitting or meeting.

In 1848 the Fox sisters from America gave public séances after they discovered that they could communicate with the Spirit World via rappings. The Fox sisters played a big part at start of Modern Spiritualism. In the mid 1800’s seances were held with a group of people sitting in a circle or around a table. They joined together in the hope that eventually communication with or a manifestion from with the Spirit World would take place. The medium sat in a cabinet or at the table.

Many séances were held in the homes and are called “Home circles”. Very often the home circle was formed of friends and family. By sitting together in harmony and love and often in dimmed light or darkened conditions, all of them hoped to be able to connect to the Spirit World. Sometimes the Spirit World made known who the particular medium was that was meant to be developed.

Most seances and especially materialisatioin seances are held in the dark. There are several reasons for that but one of the main reasons is that ectoplasm, which is the substance being exuded from the medium and used by the spirit world to manifest themselves, is highly sensitive to light. The tiniest light can cause the ectoplasm to shoot back into the body with such a high speed that the medium can get injured. In history this even led to the death of a physical medium. That is also a reason why we take precautions before the start of the séance but also during and afterwards. You can read more about this in the protocol we have.
