The Jacob's Ladder Of Communion

"By the earnest study of the conditions requisite for the development of

body, mind, and psychic sense, the intelligent medium will endeavor to

meet the friends who inspire him at least half way on the Jacob's ladder

of communion, and to enter into reciprocal and conscious fellowship with

them on the thought plane, so that their inspirations may freely flow

through his instrumentality to others, unobstructed by his personality.

Classes for the development of mediumship along these lines are very

much needed; classes in which the members are expected to take an

active part, not merely to sit and sit, and let the spirits do all the

work, but by systematic preparation and spiritual aspiration and

cultivated receptivity prepare themselves to become lucid and capable

instruments for the transmission of information and helpful influences

from the other side.
