Materialization from Ectoplasm via Medium

By: Elaine Murray

A materialization occurs when ectoplasm is used to produce a semi-solid form which is capable of talking in a manner similar to when the spirit was on the earth plane. The trance medium sets up a cabinet in the corner of a room. A cabinet consists of black curtains which are hung. Usually there is a red light that enables the sitters to see the shapes as they form out of the ectoplasm from the medium. Unless invited to do so, the sitters should not touch the forms as it could damage the medium. Materialization mediumship is rare today, but was quite popular some years ago in the Spiritualist Church.
