This is unlike the trance you have
seen on the television or on platform, it is an extraordinary
experience. Brenda states that this is an experimental demonstration
as she does not know who is going to come through or how they
are going to manifest themselves. You may hear from your family,
an historical figure or someone belonging to the building
you are in. You may witness transfiguration, physical phenomena,
noises within the room, movement of objects or several voices
speaking at once. These things have happened individually
at some time during past demonstrations.
Brenda works in a cabinet with a red
light. A microphone and amplifier is set up so that everyone
can hear what is said. A night vision camcorder and projector
screen is used so that the audience can see there is no trickery.
Not all phenomena can be seen on the projector as mists, ectoplasm
etc. do not always show up in that kind of light.
What is Deep Trance?
Deep trance is used primarily in physical mediumship. There
are many factors which indicate genuine trance control. Genuine
trance is a strong sharing of mental and physical energies
and consciousness between the medium and the spirit communicator.
Generally, although not always, the following will be apparent
with the medium:
Various degrees of unconsciousness
Slow, deep and steady breathing
Slowing of the heart rate
Lowering of body temperature
No REM (rapid eye movement)
Greatly reduced reaction to touch
Because the spirit communicator is
speaking directly through the medium (as opposed to the medium
relating the information as is the case with mental mediumship)
the voice pattern, tone, inflection and general manner of
speech is different to that normally exhibited by the medium.
