Adding A Medium

Sometimes there may result certain physical phenomena such as table

tippings and movements of furniture, in cases in which there is a

sufficient amount of psychic force generated among the sitters; but in

such cases there may be an absolute failure to produce some of the

higher forms of mediumistic phenomena, such as, for instance, clear

spirit messages by raps or otherwise, the failure being caused by the

fact that th
circle did not include in its membership any person of

sufficiently developed mediumistic powers to be considered a "medium."

In such cases the introduction into the circle of a person possessing

fairly developed mediumistic powers of the higher order may change the

condition of affairs at once, and almost immediately the higher

manifestations may present themselves. In such cases the soil is richly

fertilized and highly cultivated, and all that has been lacking is the

strong, vigorous seed of true mediumship. In such cases when a true

medium is discovered by means of his or her introduction into the circle

(for such discovery is often made in this way), it may be well for the

circle afterwards to devote itself to the development of that particular

medium. And it must not be forgotten that such development of the

particular medium frequently also results in the development of the

other members sitting in the circle.
