A description of the experience
T C Lethbridge – ESP Beyond Time and Distance
There is one well authenticated incident, which as a semi-historian I feel to be significant.
When the Spanish Armada came up the Channel in 1588, the Hampshire witches, who like all the others were intensely patriotic, held a great meeting to oppose it. We all know what happened and we also know what Queen Elizabeth had put on the medallions, which she had struck to commemorate this, for Spain, disastrous event. All she said was: 'God blew with His winds and they were scattered.'
There was no word about the gallantry of the English ships, many of whom were fitted out at private expense. The wind was clearly the point which struck her so forcibly. It seemed no natural wind from the way it drove the Spaniards right round Scotland -and the stragglers back in ignominy to Spain. If there is one thing which the witches were always supposed to be able to do, it was raise the wind. That is why no woman is supposed to whistle.
