Christmas séance 1973

Recorded: December 16th 1973
This Christmas séance was conducted in the presence of fifty invited sitters, gathered at Leslie Flint's basement home in Westbourne Terrace, London.

Christmas séances have a decorated tree placed in the séance room and gifts are left for any spirit children who might wish to enjoy them.

After the séance, the gifts are often donated to a children's charity or local hospice, along with any money raised.

In this recording the voices of various spirit children can be heard, also the sounds made as they open gifts and play with toys, left for them beneath the Christmas tree.
The recording is introduced by Bram Rogers and can be heard here:

Sitters include:

Vivian, Jessie Nason, Burt Billinghurst, Renie, Jim Ellis, Bram Rogers, Leslie Flint.

Communicators include:

Mickey, Doris, Martin, Brion, Patricia, Dzabo, Dr Charles Marshall.


and a detailed summary of this 97-minute recording is provided below.


While some are singing, other sitters point out different sounds heard in the darkened séance room.

Leslie calls out for Mickey and the spirit children to join them.

After a break in the recording the sitters are heard singing Christmas songs

and we hear the toys squeaking and shuffling around. Mickey greets Jessie Nason and the other sitters and Bram and Leslie share a joke.

While singing to enhance the vibrations, some toys are moved around the floor and the sitters applaud.

Mickey speaks to Jessie again, then he suggests a song for everyone to sing - and he joins in very loudly at the end.

Mickey shares a joke about cars powered by ectoplasm
and Bram points out a luminous toy in the room, which is moving around.

After some whispering, a toy is heard banging and Mickey makes a joke of it.

He advises the sitters begin singing again and a toy horn is heard.

Toys are thrown around and a toy harmonica is played and the sitters share a joke.

Mickey and Jessie discuss physical mediumship, a child’s voice is heard, then a Christmas cracker is pulled - which shocks Leslie.

The sitters respond to activity and noises around the Christmas tree and whispering voices can be heard. A young spirit child named Doris begins to communicate.

She talks first about her doll, then tells the sitters that she died together with her parents and the baby. Doris says her mother has accompanied her today, along with a lady wearing a white dress and tiara - who Doris thinks looks like a fairy-tale character in a book she once had on Earth.

Doris talks of her continuing education in the spirit world and about her family, then asks if she can take away a doll or a game for her friends…

Mickey returns and the harmonica is played, the sitters begin to sing and Mickey sings along. A non-English voice tries to speak, the harmonica and the sound of rustling paper is heard and Mickey jokes about a toy doll.

A toy xylophone is heard playing and the sitters laugh loudly as spirit children touch them and move items around the room.

A child is heard laughing, then Mickey hands a doll to one of the sitters. Much noise is heard as spirit children play with the toys in the room.

A spirit boy named Martin speaks to the sitters about his family and his memories of London.
He talks about his pet dog named ‘sausage’ and says he wants to find a medium so he can work like Mickey.

Mickey jokes about a child communicator named Brion, who speaks about the donated toys and beautiful Christmas tree.

She recalls her school days and her love of the piano, then plays the xylophone in time to the sitter’s singing. After a break in the recording, Mickey responds to a question about time being an illusion and spiritual progression.

He speaks to one sitter about Scottish bagpipes and tells another that his wife is close to him. The sitters sing again and are amazed when toffees and chocolates are handed to them in the dark. After more activity from the spirit children, a child named Patricia asks Mickey for help with the toys.

She speaks to Jim Ellis about her Earth life in Canada and the USA, then reveals she once lived in Arkansas (pronounced Ar-kan-zas until the 1880s). Patricia’s friend communicates, then the voice of Dzabo is heard briefly.

The familiar voice of Dr Charles Marshall explains how the séance was made possible by the combined effort of all present - and he describes in detail how the power of the spirit within,can be called upon to bring forth miracles.
Mickey says farewell to all and the recording ends.

This summary was created for the Trust by K. Jackson-Barnes in December 2018.
