Physical Mediumship

What is it?

Physical mediumship involves a form of phenomena whereby external spirit entities manipulate the energies and substances of a medium, whether it is man or woman, to form physical manifestations such as spirit bodies that in human form or voice boxes where a spirit can speak directly from their world to ours. The spirit communicators provide an interface of communication between our world on earth and their worlds known as spirit world. Other physical phenomena that can be produced are physical smells, hot or cold drafts, levitation, apportation of objects from mid air, transfiguration, spirit lights, raps or knocks, direct voice communication, and physical apparitions.

Why have I not heard of Physical Mediumship before?

Physical mediumship is very rare due to the punishment that your body takes when trying to allow spirits to materialised from their world into our world. To do this they take substances from the physical body to form what is called ectoplasm and photoplasm which a refined form of ectoplasm that can be used in visible red and blue light. This substance can also be taken from other physical objects like clothes, carpets, tables, or furniture, in a psychic circle, but it’s mainly comes from the physical mediums body. Once the ectoplasm or photoplasm is formed, a spirit can clothe itself in this material to allow it to be seen in our world. This is usually done in a séance or psychic circle, as I prefer to call it. It can be painful and leaves you with a kind of psychic hangover the next day, or even couple of days. I feel sluggish tired and a bit paranoid, even sickly for a few hours the next day. For me I know something is going on without seeing what actually occurs in a physical circle as the after effects are proof enough that I have had an ordeal. It is never the same place or the same people and conditions can be warm or cold so you cant suggest that I may be poisoned or allergic to something, thus the after effects are a related to my physical environment because they are not. Physical mediumship offers the highest form of proof of life after death whereby those who have passed on are able to re-appear in solid form, exactly as they were when they lived on the earth. This is done with a physical medium, a person that has developed the ability to produce large amounts of ectoplasm from the physical body. This allows a spirit person to re-form their physical body just as it was on earth, warts and all. When I say warts and all, spirits appearing in physical mediumship can have any defects that they had on their body, such as missing fingers, scars, and so on. These defects give an added proof to a loved one, who knows that the person is who they say they are, and no fraud is taking place. Physical mediumship is done in darkness usually with a low red light or blue light. I can affirm 100% that physical mediumship is real and is a wonderful unique gift. There are many facets to physical mediumship. These are direct voice, materialisations, apports, transfiguration, psychic smells, raps, people being touched, levitation of the table and other objects. A medium usually goes into trance but this is not always the case. I will give a brief explanation of each below.


With transfiguration the face of a spirit person can be seen forming over the mediums face, or other sitters faces. It is best to do this mediumship in a red light so the ectoplasm can form over the sitters faces without being destroyed. The faces can be very clear at times, with the mediums face completely disappearing. On other occasions many faces can appear over a mediums face quite rapidly but each one is distinct from each other. Features like beards and moustaches can be clearly seen. Objects like glasses or earrings, smoking pipes or hats. The hair can change shape and size including the body shape, where it can appear large or small. You need to see it to believe it, it is not an optical illusion as people in my circles can see the ectoplasm forming on the faces opposite or their own hands. Fingers can extend and diminish in front of ones eyes, not just to one person but all individuals. It is very fascinating to see.

Direct Voice

Direct voice is another very interesting part of physical mediumship, where the voice of a spirit speaks to sitters out of mid air. Most mediums have a speaking trumpet sitting on the floor of a circle or table if one is required. The trumpets used for this type of communication are conical shaped object with holes at both ends. The trumpet is placed in the centre of the circle of people present, when the atmosphere is right for spirit they will sometimes make the trumpet float in the air and make it fly around the room stopping at a person they may want to speak to. More often the trumpet is not really used for communication or amplification, but it makes the psychic phenomena very interesting and helps concentrate the mind. Direct voice and independent voice are basically the same thing, but some people have different ideas about how these work. The voices are created from an artificial voice box formed from ectoplasm again taken from the physical medium. Psychic power needs to be generated from the sitters to help form ectoplasm for the communication so some music is played and a singsong helps bring the power up. Once the power is sufficient it can take a few minutes for a spirit to master the voice box. Once the voices come through it’s as clear and powerful as anyone talking in the room. Men, women, children, of all ages languages and accents can speak. Direct voice mediumship unfortunately requires complete darkness to function but again it offers direct proof of life after death as questions and answers can be made to the spirit individuals.


Apports occur in a psychic circle where a physical object is materialised by spirit guides, to the group of people sitting in circle. Usually this involves a physical object that has been dematerialised in one location, transported to another and re-materialised. It has been known for objects to appear to individuals who are not in a circle or have anything to do with mediumship, or have any contact with psychics. The objects can be almost anything from flowers, books, jewelery and even money usually coins (usually small denomination values, remember financial wealth is not important to spirit), I even heard the story of an umbrella being dropped onto its owner’s lap, which had been left outside of the room. Apports occur for particular reasons and psychic circle sitters do not usually sit for the purpose of bringing apports through. They just happen during a psychic circle if the spirit has the energy or a particular reason to do so. One strange peculiarity of apports is that they have an extended life if they happen to be a flower for example; there are reports where it lasted for months or up to a year in some cases. Apports are great fun and it makes you wonder if the transporters from Star Trek will be a reality one day.
