PHYSICAL MEDIUMSHIP AT HINDSGAVL CASTLE, DENMARK.
The Felix Circle at Marion Dampier-Jean’s Summer School, July 2013
By Marion Dampier-Jeans
Demonstrations of Physical Mediumship are unique, but more exceptional when there is development of the medium resp. the spirit team observable over the months and years of work. The actual opportunity to sit with any physical medium is not just the phenomena, but it is the expanding and advancement of knowledge that follow. I have sat and worked with The Felix Circle’s Medium many times, but to see his development over the years is a gratification. A development that naturally concerns the abilities of the spirit team as well, which still extends this wonderful mediumship!
The 17th /18th of July 2013 on the Island Funen (Fyn) in Denmark.
Ectoplasm & materializations
In the morning, before The Felix Circle-medium’s lecture and demonstration, I myself gave a lecture on ectoplasm, the texture and how it can appear in different colour and be thick or thin in texture. I was showing a picture of Mr. Einer Nielsen (a well-known Danish materialization medium of the last century) to the students, taken in 1939 in Denmark. This picture shows Mr. Nielsen next to a transparent materialization, through which Einer’s arm was visible.
I also talked about the different faces that sometimes appear in ectoplasm and why so many faces seemed so
different in quality and nature; some looked like cardboard cut-outs, and others like out of focus. In some picturesof ectoplasm faces are even distorted or look like copies from newspapers or photographs.I explained the different theories in regards to that and the fact, that mediumistic materialization itself, by most of the involved researchers, was considered a fact, but that we still fully do not understand its processes.
Einer Nielsen In some cases said that Spirits could even project their image on to the ectoplasm; duplicating their faces from photographs into it.
Another strange ability, showing how even the outer space might mirror within ectoplasm, was whe,n in one demonstration of Einer Nielsen, a ‘spirit-dress’, created out of ectoplasm, suddenly showed clear features from the wallpaper of the séance room.
Anyway, T.F.C-Medium is known to produce huge amounts of that, not yet understood, substance under good control, and I wanted the students to be prepared for what was coming in the séances. The medium started the first day with an excellent lecture on the roots of Physical Mediumship; the ‘Physical Phenomena of Mysticism’, about his 30 years of development and about the work within the Felix Experimental Group (his home circle).
After that, we retreated into the séance room!
The room, the students and the medium, all were thoroughly searched and checked.
The medium was under observation while un-and redressing for the séance, showing he wasn’t bringing any materials with him. He was then directly guided to his seat.
‘Mr. Bender’, a former Professor of Psychology (and the medium’s guide) then introduced himself to the students, which was an extreme value for them to listen to. The personality explained who he was, where he lived, his work and how he died. It is important for a sitter always to know whom they are communicating with!
The séance then went on with all kinds of wonderful phenomena. Bettina Thomsen, the co-organizer of he Summer School, was given an apported leopard-patterned small stone. This stone fell from the medium’s hand in good red light, after I had personally checked the medium’s whole arm and hand up to his armpit. There was no stone before the séance, nor any place to hide one anywhere at, or in his hand - I would have detected it in every case! I sat very close to the cabinet and could see the stone falling.This phenomenon was really excellent! Throughout the demonstration, the first day people were being touchedvery differently (from clear caresses to superficial touches). Trumpet phenomenon was shown, dark masses moved, small, glowing balls were seen around, spirit lights whizzed through the room, instruments were played and all that happened meanwhile the medium was held by his 4 limbs by two people (I was one of them!)
Then we were told that we would see ectoplasm’s building processes, forms developing from the mass! After the ectoplasm was ‘produced’ in front of our eyes, the strange mass first laid on the floor, when we were asked by ‘Mr. Bender’ if we wanted to see a hand building in the ectoplasm?
Then we all saw a hand coming from the slightly moving and flexing mass on the floor waving to us and Mr. Bender explained that this was his hand materialized within the ectoplasm, duplicated from his ether-body which still holds the creational and form-building memory to achieve that!
‘Mr. Bender’ then announced to present the ectoplasms durability and its different states between both thick and thin. The interesting thing was that my lecture given some 3 hours before became fully true in what we saw that night.
This time I was an observant sitter; I sat directly opposite the cabinet in full view of the whole circle. Again I observed interesting phenomena: for example I followed this time closely the spirit lights with my eyes and observed the way they went around. They acted very spontaneously; up to 3 lights were as if they were searching for something, or at least I had the impression they were.
While I was sitting there I was sending out thoughts of Healing towards the lights, after we were told they were healing lights and they constantly whizzed around and went from side to side around me! Then one of the lights landed on the floor between my legs for some 30 sec. meanwhile it actually expanded its size there and went in to a duller colour before it suddenly shot up from the floor and became a small, but clearly defined, bright light again.
The spirit control then again materialized hands to play around with the illuminated ping-pong balls 2 m. distant from the hold medium, when I noted that the independent spirit light we just saw, was landing on to the wooden board where the 3 illuminated balls were and was shrinking smaller and additionally interacted with the balls and made them move and jump by pushing them.
The most interesting observation for me, and confirmed by two other sitters, was when ‘Mr. Bender’ told us the medium would show the ectoplasm outside the cabinet in sufficient red light. The light came on and the medium walked out with this mass in his hands and stretching and opening it, showing its interior to the sitters. The interesting fact was that the Medium, who normally walks slightly tilted forward due to a severe spine symptomatic, suddenly stood up straight!
I was amazed, and so was Lissi Rimmen and Hanne Hemcker, both leaders of two Danish physical circles, and we were discussing afterwards what we all saw.
I noticed the medium’s sudden upright posture, as he moved effortlessly among us from the moment he rose from his chair. He also even looked taller, much taller as he walked around – perhaps because of a temporary whole spine correction? – we all saw this clearly. He also looked slimmer.
It was incredible to see, he was another person. Lissi is by the way a qualified physiotherapist and her observation of the medium extremely changed posture gives more credibility to our observation! In the end we had with The Felix Circle-medium two great learning days!
A special thanks goes to the medium, his wife and the spirit team for 2 wonderful days of physical mediumship and lecture!
