Turvey, Vincent – The beginnings of Seership – The silver cord
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Preface to The beginnings of Seership by W T Stead
"This cord appears whenever the 'I' leaves the 'Me' It seems to join one body to the other, passing from the solar plexus of the one to the back of the neck of the other. It is very like a spider's cord ; but in colour it is silver, tinged with heliotrope; and it extends itself and contracts in the same way as does elastic cord."
It is by the same cord that he effects phone' voyance, as when he says-
"Sometimes 'I' appears to be in the room at the one end of the line, and, by a sort of living cord, to communicate with 'Me at the other end, and to make 'Me speak about what ‘l' sees."
It is worth noting that Mr. Turvey finds "genuine" phone-voyance (when the “I" appears to go inside the wires) a much greater strain on the brain than ordinary clairvoyance or astral voyaging.
