TO MATERIALIZATIONS BY MEDIUM ALEC HARRIS
I have just read in today's Feedback about a comment from
a Ken which reads; " I was just reading about a medium
named Alec Harris. Whilst in trance, through his mediumship,
20 materialized spirit people would walk out of the cabinet,
walk 10 feet away from the cabinet, and converse and interact
with the sitters. This was done in bright red light with
the curtain wide open for all of the sitters to see the
medium still in trance, bound to his chair! How incredible
is that? Look it up for yourself. Amazing! Regards, Ken"
Alec and his wife, Louie, were personal friends of my parents
when they lived in Cardiff, South Wales. Sadly they emigrated
to South Africa in 1957 when I was only 13, but for the
two previous years I had the very good fortune to have been
a regular sitter and the youngest at their wonderful circles
for materialization and healing.
I finished last year the retyping of Louie's original manuscript
which is about three times as long as the book titled; "They
Walked Among Us" which was first published in 1980.
This was submitted to Alec and Louie's son, Bradley, who
at the same time had discussed with David Fontana the books
release again in its original manuscript. So I forwarded
my copy to David and the book will shortly be released.
Everything written by Louie was experienced by me
in which materialized forms were exactly like those in real
life where we could touch and hug them as appropriate and
communicate just as if they were really alive physically.
Even after emigration Alec and Louie frequently visited
UK and would stay with my parents and other friends and
family during which we would have the opportunity of experiencing
materialization again. As explained in Louie's book, Alec
was formerly a skeptic on all psychic matters, but he changed
to become one of the world's greatest materialization mediums.
Alec is not as well known as people like Helen Duncan because
he was not a public type of figure, but I believe that his
mediumship was every bit as good.
On one of their return visits from South Africa when I was
aged 19 my future wife, who was a great skeptic, was invited
to a sitting. She experienced the materialization of her
father who none of us including myself had ever met, and
her North American Indian Spirit guide who advised her that
she could think of him and he would be around to help whenever
she required. Needless to say my wife was no longer a skeptic.
Full materialization is so truly wonderful that
it is impossible to remain a skeptic afterwards, and one
truly has one's life changed beneficially so that there
can never be any fear of death. In fact physical death is
merely seen as a pleasant release from an often depleted
physical body. When my time for passing arrives I look forward
to meeting again Alec and Louie as well as my parents and
other relatives and friends who have left their physical
