Tonight’s circle consisted of Victoria and George, Barbara, Radana, and myself. Maxine was there early on but felt like she had something in her eye and left early. Tonight, we started with a red light on, which provided enough light that we could see each other. First, Victoria gave messages. (omitted)
George opened the circle with our protection ritual and we all welcomed and named our guides and guardians, spirit friends, mediums, mediums-in-spirit: Shiri, Norman, Florence Scovill Shinn, Stewart Edward White, Betty White, Clen Clendenning, John Edwards, John Lilek, John Holland, Elizabeth Kubler Ross, Spirit-in-the-Pipe, our Indian guides, our families, friends, grandparents, parents, sisters, pets, etc.. We then sang “Amazing Grace”, “In the Garden”, and “You Raise Me Up” and then we “om’d” three times.
It was a quiet circle tonight, not much talking or laughing. Victoria was breathing very quietly. George said he was aware of a large concentration of energy near the center of the room. Barbara agreed with him. He said, also, that he saw small, moving lights around the top of the trumpet. The trumpet appeared to me to be a lighthouse with a large, revolving beacon light on top. (note: I did not see this; I was simply aware of it.)
Barbara and I saw lots of sparks around the room. Radana and Barbara were aware of a strong energy between them. Radana said that she felt as if the spirits were trying to manipulate her head, mouth, and lips.
George said that his ear had been touched. I was not aware of any touches. George suggested that we all send energy towards the center of the room. So, we all sent Reiki energy towards the center of the room, towards Victoria, towards the sitters, and towards the crystals. Then, he suggested that we sing again to raise the energies in the room. We did that; also, I visualized myself throwing a ball for McKenzie, my present Westie, and to Corky and Lacey, former Westies, in order to further raise my energy.
There was an unusual, swirling energy in the room tonight. I particularly noticed it around Radana. No channeled voices, though. There was a bluish/purplish mist to my right and around Radana.
Victoria seemed to be traveling but not in her usual way. When she came out of trance, she said that Mikhail had taken her out back of the séance room to the empty parking lot backed by a fence. She couldn’t figure out what she was to do there. (Maybe, she was there to see the super moon?)
It was quite cold in the room, even before we started. At one point, my hands felt very tingly and warm. Victoria mentioned that earlier in the evening, before circle, she had heard raps in the séance room and she wondered why the spirits had not rapped during circle, instead.
After we had closed the circle and retired to the front room, Victoria was aware of a spirit who was speaking to her in German. It sounded like: Hans Bender ist mit du (diex?). George looked up the translation on-line and the sentence means Hans Bender is with you. I asked who Hans Bender was. George looked the name up on-line, and he turned out to be a German professor of para-psychology, specializing in unusual activities such as poltergeists and (?). Victoria felt that Hans Bender was sitting in (inside of) her. She described him in detail. Then, George pulled up several pictures of him that were on-line, and Victoria recognized several of the picures as being the spirit she was seeing.
Victoria suggested to Barbara and I that perhaps we might get more information in tomorrow’s automatic writing class. George suggested that for next circle I choose a crystal for each sitter to hold during the séance.
-By Sitter Karen V.
Hans Bender (5 February 1907 – 7 May 1991) was a German lecturer on the subject of parapsychology, who was also responsible for establishing the parapsychological institute Institut für Grenzgebiete der Psychologie und Psychohygiene in Freiburg. For many years his pipe smoking, contemplative figure was synonymous with German parapsychology. He was an investigator of ‘unusual human experience’, e.g. poltergeists and clairvoyants. One of his most famous cases was the Rosenheim Poltergeist. -Ed.
Quotes accredited to Hans Bender:
- Because of the many dimensions of forms of though which you can also put into physical form, you have the possibility to create much which we cannot fashion in the same manner.
- Free yourself from the rigid conduct of tradition and open yourself to the new forms of probability.
- Good and evil do not exist for me any more. The fear of evil is merely a mass projection here and on Earth.
- Please, do not visualize that we exist above you such as in heaven. The concepts above and below are products of your mind. The soul does not swing upwards. It exists in the center and orients itself in every direction.
- The core of my personality consists of many selves.
- The forms of my awareness are richer than yours.
- Things you create with your mind are always part of your post-mortal life, whether they seem real or not.
- You shall always find what you created in your mind, for instance, a benevolent God or an evil Devil. Between them are countless facets. Therefore, concentrate on the depth of your consciousness and on what you consider to be positive and good.
