Independent Slate Writing

What is generally known as "independent slate writing" is a very

interesting phase of mediumship, and one of the peculiarities thereof is

that such phenomena is sometimes produced through mediums who seem to

possess little or no mediumistic powers in other directions. In

independent slate writing there is no employment of the hands of the

medium by the spirit to form the letters, words, and sentences of the

communication. On the contrary, the writing is done directly by the

spirit forces, independent of the organism of the medium. Of course the

psychic power of the medium and his vital energy as well is drawn upon

by the spirits in producing this form of manifestation, but the medium

is sometimes seated out of reach of the slates and in no case actually

touches the pencil.
