The Sitters In The Circle

The sitters will do well to occupy their same places at each sitting,

unless the spirits indicate otherwise. The medium, or in the absence of

a recognized medium the most sensitive person in the circle, should sit

in the circle at a place mentally recognized as the "head of the table,"

even though the table be circular in form. It will be well for the

sitters to hold each others' hands at the beginning of the circle, in

order to generate the necessary magnetism. But after the circle is

actually formed, the sitters should place their hands on the top of the

table, close to its edge; the small fingers of the hands of each sitter

touching those of the sitter on either side of him--in this way there is

a psychic and magnetic battery formed of the sitters, providing perfect

connection is maintained.
