Type of Spiritual Experience
Madam Home - D D Home his life his mission
.. towards the end of July 1860, Mr. and Mrs. Home went on a visit to friends in France. Mr. Wason was invited by Mrs. Milner Gibson to a seance, at which, among numerous manifestations, an accordion played in his own hand. He also witnessed on this occasion the phenomenon of Home's levitation, the room being faintly lit from the outside in the manner already described by Count Tolstoy. Mr. Wason, was at this time a sceptic, but, as the result of continued investigation with Mr. Home, became a Spiritualist, and was subsequently Home's hast at Liverpool.
A description of the experience
Séance July 1860
Mr. Home crossed the table over the heads of the persons sitting around it. By standing and stretching upwards I was enabled to reach his hand, about seven feet distant from the floor; and laying hold and keeping hold of his hand, I moved along with him five or six paces as he floated above me in the air, and I only let go his hand when I stumbled against a stool. ... I saw his body eclipse two lines of light issuing from between the top of a door and its architrave such door leading into an adjoining room that was brilliantly lighted.
I make no comments on the above, and advance no theory or hypothesis: I have confined myself simply to facts.
