Physical mediumship, where spirits of the departed speak or interact directly with the living, is a rare but very real phenomenon. In this fascinating book, Elaine Kuzmeskus retraces historical séance sessions and retells firsthand accounts of spirits reaching from beyond the veil so that we, the living, can better understand what happens in these encounters and why. Written by a college professor and skilled practitioner, it includes a comprehensive review of physical mediumship that covers psychometry, billet readings, slate writing, electronic voice phenomena, spirit cabinets, trumpet mediumship, materialization, and much more. Rich with perspectives of this veteran medium who has attended seances with the world’s top physical mediums, there are exercises to help you get started to develop your skills. The appendix includes notes from 22 séance sessions for further study. Complete with a bibliography, a glossary, and a helpful index for quick reference, this compendium will become your touchstone for mediumship.
