After Katie Halliwell attended a physical séance given by Stewart Alexander for the first time in 1999, she quickly discovered that friends and relatives did not appreciate the solid reality of her experiences. She attended more of his public séances and wrote reports explaining the true and genuine phenomena of trance, Direct Voice and materialisation. She also provided excerpts of the recordings of these séances.

The result of this project was an easy ‘read and listen’ guide for those with little or no knowledge of communicating with Spirit World, as well as for those who are interested in, and know about, the wonders of the séance room.

The transcript for the CD of the recordings is included in the book, but it is highly recommended that you purchase the accompanying CD to be able to hear the Spirit people’s voices. The communication is so clear, you will be able to appreciate the personality of each Spirit person speaking in their own style and accent, bringing love, comfort and understanding of survival after death.

This is an opportunity to share Katie’s experiences, along with reports written by people from America, Britain and Europe explaining how they physically heard and touched the Spirit people as the two worlds met in total harmony.

Introduction to Part 1

Katie HalliwellI would like to share my séance room experiences of 1999 to 2001 with people willing to consider fairly and impartially the contents of this book (Part One) and the accompanying audio CD. However these have not been produced in order to appeal to those with closed minds, or those who would approach the movement of Spiritualism out of idle curiosity and/or with overt scepticism.

People with concrete ideas that the Spirit people do not exist, unknowingly create a barrier for themselves and, in so doing, adversely affect the delicate emotional balance of the séance room so that the generation of physical phenomena and evidential communication often proves impossible. Stewart Alexander is the trance and physical phenomena medium in whose circle I have had these experiences. It has taken him over 35 years to develop and even at this advanced stage he is still developing. As the Spirit team becomes stronger in using Stewart as an instrument, they increase the ability for our loved ones to be able to communicate with us.

The Spirit people will only come if they are invited to do so and because of the 'like attracts like' law of free will and service, patience with an open mind is, of course, very important. When conditions were good within the séance room the manifesting phenomena was tangible, so much so that we all heard, saw and witnessed the same thing. In the darkness of the séance room Direct Voice occasionally manifested, as also did full materialisation.

You will also read and hear about my experiences involving ectoplasm by means of which we were all able to see and touch the materialised Spirit hand in the red light. In addition to such rare physical phenomena, experiments were conducted to demonstrate the passage of solid inanimate matter through living matter; séance room trumpets (cone-shaped megaphone) regularly moved around in mid air; and self-illuminated lights sometimes appeared in the room, both pin-sized and large diffused masses. Believe me, there was most certainly no fraud involved in these wonders. It has been my single hope and intention that this work, and all that has been recorded herein, will be of service and will offer evidence of a life eternal to anyone willing to consider what follows with intelligence, with sincerity and with love.

Thank you.

Katie’s very first ‘message’

On Sunday 1st October, I went to the Huddersfield Spiritualist church and was given my very first message.

 …The visiting platform medium from Rotherham looked at me and said, "I'm coming to you first because since the service began, the Spirit people have been eager to give you this message. Look at the photographs and you will see the picture."

The medium then gave me a quizzical look and said, "Does that mean anything to you?" I replied, "No."

The medium hesitated, then said, "That message is very important and it will mean something to you later on. Now I must move on to somebody else."

It was a very short message indeed and I was not impressed. In actual truth I had lied to the medium by saying no because I wanted him to tell me why he was giving me that message and I had expected the Spirit people to inform the medium as to why it was so important. But to be honest with you, I do remember that when the medium delivered that message, in the same instant he delivered it, I had a flash thought of psychic drawings and if my thought conditions had been what they are now, I would have co-operated.

Psychic drawingsThat message actually caused me to immediately think of psychic drawings, and the communication was based on thought and thought energy is fast. Like many first timers in a Spiritualist church, I chose to communicate using the logic of my brain and not through the mind using thought energy.

On Wednesday 4th October I received three pencil drawings through the post from the psychic artist in Sheffield. In those days the post would come before I set off for work. I took one look at these drawings, expecting to see Mum or Grandma but I did not recognise anybody. Feeling disappointed, I threw the drawings on to the table and went to work.

As I was driving to work, I suddenly remembered the message - ‘Look at the photographs and you will see the picture’ so when I got home that same evening, I looked through a box of photographs and found three people of similar likeness.

actual photosThe only drawing I could not really match up was that at bottom left. The nearest likeness I could find was the photograph of the man in spectacles. The gentleman in the drawing has a shorter chin and is not wearing spectacles. Some people thought it was the same person, but I was not at all convinced. The photograph is of Uncle H. and he is a blood relative.

The other two drawings, I was happy to accept. The drawing of the lady matches with Auntie V. and the third drawing (right) matches with Uncle A. (photograph bottom left). Uncle A. was a friend of the family and a neighbour. I must have been about 9 years old when this gentleman passed to Spirit and I had completely forgotten what he looked like. I do remember these people and I was close to them, but they were not in my mind when I saw the drawings, simply because I had not seen them for such a long time.

If the psychic artist from Sheffield had been given the photographs of Auntie V. and Uncle A. to copy, I don't think he could have done much better. I was staggered. This really was spooky and what was even more so, was that it had been backed up by the message at Huddersfield church from a different medium, another stranger, from Rotherham.
