Manning, Matthew - The Link - 03 The objects moved get bigger
Type of Spiritual Experience
At the time the poltergeist phenomena was occurring I was due to sit the Common Entrance Examination which would determine which school I was to go to after I had left preparatory school, and I was very tense. I believe that this may have been a contributory factor to the outbreak of the phenomenon in the first place, and that because of the tension I felt, I was generating "energy" which was helping to cause the poltergeist activity.

A description of the experience
The Link – Matthew Manning
On 13th March nine objects moved between 7.00 a.m. and 7.30 a.m., and although that may not have been an extraordinarily large number, the objects increased in size, so that an upholstered chair moved about six feet, a dining chair was upturned, a candlestick was placed in the middle of a vase of flowers, and other small objects moved.
A peak in the physical manifestations was reached on the following morning, when eleven objects were moved during fifteen minutes.
From that day on there appeared to be a waning of the movements; small objects moved shorter distances. We had been witness to this poltergeist for nearly three months, and although we had not noted other characteristics occasionally found in similar cases, such as fire-raising and smell-produclng, the other hallmarks of a poltergeist were unmistakable. Dr. Owen had warned my father about these possibilities.
