A description of the experience
The word fanning was once used to indicate the currents of air that are often felt during séances or during various forms of spiritual experience.
The same currents can also accompany ‘mesmerism’ and hypnotherapy sessions. The current of air may be warm or cool and can cause chilliness or drowsiness.
As it comes in waves, it was likened to the effects of being fanned.
