I met Leslie Flint for the first time in London England in 1978; we both went to an event The Physic Dinner and Dance which took place for many years and was an occasion for mediums and healers meet to relax and learn about each other.
The next time I sat with Leslie was in 1982. I was invited to sit with him in Paddington London in his home. His séance room looked like a small cinema, but comfortable, we did not sit in a circle but in a row of 5. On cinema benches we looked towards Leslie Flint. Lesley talked about mediumship; he was not in favor of mediums. He said that mediums today came from an assembly belt like in a factory. He said that they did not understand the meaning of mediumship.
After a few minutes Mickey, his cockney spirit guide came through. Leslie was fully awake, sitting snorting, like he had smoked too much and was clearing his throat. This irritated Mickey, and he asked him to shut up. We could hear their voices taking on top of each other, one voice overlapping the other – they were talking at the same time – telling each other off. I found this interesting to hear. Mickey more than once asked Leslie to be silent. This made sitters smile. It was like a normal conversation between friends.
Mickey was a funny young boy; sometimes he could be rather hostile, especially if the questions put to him were irrelevant to spiritualism or Spirit. If the questions put to him were about New Age he would flip out.
He also had a lot of sympathy for other people. He once told a man whom I know of, that Mickey was very sad for him because his wife, Sue, had passed away many years before but she had never come through to him. He had been sitting with Leslie for about ten years and he had never received a message from her, despite their having been married for many years.
Then Mickey said: “Funny we had some foreign speaking spirits coming through some time ago, but the sitters did not understand what they were saying. There is another foreigner here today” (meaning me, being Danish) and he asked me to listen to a tape that had been made previously. I thought the voice in the tape was speaking in an Eastern European language and was allowed to borrow the tape. The voices were very stressed and fearfull. There was about three voices talking to each other; it was like listening to a conversation between them.
I took the tape to a friend of mine, Ruth, whose parents came from Poland. She told me that this was a conversation between three people who were going to the gas chambers during the Second World War. These lost spirits had found their way into the séance.
Some time later I was invited again, this time with my Husband Simon. Suddenly a voice came through, and speaking in Danish it said: “Marion jeg er glad for at du blev skilt” – it was my Father – he told me he had learned a little English, and would I like to hear it? He then repeated in very bad English: “Marion I am glad you got divorced.”
Nobody in that room knew that I was married before, and had now married Simon.
Nobody knew that my father could not speak or understand English. The English accent was very bad, but my father’s accent in Danish was perfect.
About 1998 (after Leslie Flint had died) I was invited to another séance with a different physical medium. Leslie Flint came through accompanied by Gordon Higginson. They came up to me and said: “Do you remember the Psychic Dinner and Dance we all went to”? Then they told me something that was done that evening that nobody else knew. They also described the evening dress I wore and told me its colour. They were both very charming. Then they reminded me about the TV- and radio programs we had made together….
This is not the first time I have had a message in a foreign language. I was invited to sit in a Circle in Germany with the medium of the Felix Experimental Group. In that séance, I received a hand written message in old fashioned Danish language, written by a Danish physical medium Einer Nielsen. This note can be seen here on my home page. This shows that languages have no boundaries, if the communication is strong.
Something I have understood over many years, is that we are all different, different nations, with different views, so why not communicate in your Mother Tongue? This has happened in the past many times.
