on Bill Meadows Seance Jenny's Sanctuary Banbury England.
By Dr K.
Just thought I would take a minute to share with you some
of the highlights of the seance that I attended with Bill
Meadows at Jenny's Sanctuary last week in Banbury, England.
The event was put on by Zerdin, a wonderful organization
dedicated totally to the study, development, and promotion
of physical mediumship internationally.
There were 25 sitters in attendance and all of the usual
precautions were taken to ensure the safety of the medium.
Everyone was searched at the door as usual. All jewelry,
handbags, wallets, cell phones etc., were left outside of
the seance room. I was seated in the front row, directly
in front of the cabinet. Bill's wife Colleen sat to my left.
For the sake of brevity, I will only touch briefly on the
highlights of the demonstration.
At one point, five different objects were levitated and
flying aroun the room simultaneously - two trumpets, a drum,
and two drum sticks. This was truly amazing. As I was observing
this phenomenon, I recall thinking that three of the greatest
magicians in the world could not accomplish a feat of this
magnitude. Later, with the red light turned on, the trumpets
were levitated in front of the cabinet, suspended in mid
air. I was asked by spirit to come up and retrieve one of
the trumpets and return to my seat.
At the end of the seance, the spirit communicator named
Johnathan announced that he was going to materialize his
hand and allow some of the sitters to come up and shake
hands with him. I felt truly blessed that I was one of sitters
to be invited up to shake his hand. The hand was alive and
as real as any that I have ever seen or felt. With the red
light on, I was able to look very closely at the hand. I
can say with absolute certainty that it was not the hand
of Bill Meadows, the medium. I took a mental picture of
the mediums hand before the seance started and the materialized
hand was much different. Also, the medium had a ring on
his hand that I attempted to remove several times during
the seance (when asked) and each time, with sincere effort,
I was unable to remove it.
After releasing our grasps, the materialized hand retreated
slowly back into the cabinet. As it retreated, it appeared
to shrink or dematerialize. Again I was approximately 18
inches away from the curtain when this happened so my vantage
point was excellent. I must also note that it was a hand,
a wrist, and a forearm - almost up to the elbow.
It must be noted that throughout the seance, ten times spirit
asked sitters to come up, open the curtain and check the
medium, to make sure that his arms and legs were still firmly
tied to the chair with the cable ties. The medium was checked
just before the materialization of the hand and immediately
after. The spirit team wanted everyone in the room to be
absolutely sure that there was no possibility of fraud taking
place. Not only did they use plastic cable ties, they also
used velcro straps to keep him tied to the chair. This ensures
that if the medium attempted to remove the bindings, it
would be heard by most of the sitters. The only way to remove
the cable ties is with an extremely sharp knife or a pair
of wire cutters.
Six times spirit asked me specifically to go up and check
him. Each time, I was very thorough in my examination of
the bindings. Again, I was situated exactly five feet from
the curtain. Sometimes, the spirit people would open the
curtain themselves. Nevertheless, each and every time I
was asked to go up and check the medium, he was firmly tied
to the chair and appeared to be in a trance. I recall the
bindings being on exceptionally tight and was somewhat concerned
about diminished circulation to his hands.
It is also worth mentioning that whenever the lights were
turned off, everyone in the room was asked to hold hands.
This is done so that everyone knows where their neighbor
is and so none of the sitters can get up. Again I must reiterate
that I was seated next to Colleen, the mediums wife, throughout
the seance. She had the same excitement and enthusiasm that
I had. She appeared as excited as one would be if it was
their very first seance. This, for me, was more proof of
This demonstration of physical and materialization mediumship
is concrete proof that we survive what we know as death.
There are mountains of evidence for survival and yet, the
vast majority of the population of the world are precluded
or totally unaware that it even exists. Aristotle once said,
"life is a banquet and most people are starving"
How true his words were. The greatest food for thought,
dangling precariously from the trees of knowledge, wisdom
and enlightenment, and the multitudes unable or unwilling
to savor it's nourishing, life sustaining juices, due to
what Arthur Findlay calls - the curse of ignorance. When
is it going to end? Needless suffering, so unnecessary.
