#atozchallenge 2016: S is for Seance

A seance is a meeting at which people attempt to make contact with the dead, especially through the agency of a medium.


Screen Shot 2016-04-01 at 8.06.50 AMOn a few investigations we’ve brought mediums to conduct a seance. Most of the time it was at the request of the person who wanted us to visit their haunted place and/or location. Mind you the haunting was thought to be by a deceased family member. I think I am of the same mind on seances as I told you about Ouija boards. Don’t open the door people. Remember what happened in Ghost?

How does one conduct a seance you ask? Let’s go over the steps below. You can either have a medium do this or you can try doing it yourself.

How to Conduct a Seance

  1. Gather friends or family of the deceased person. Perhaps 6-10 people would be a good number. All participants should be believers and not skeptics.
  2. Find the right spot to hold the seance. Perhaps that have a favorite room or spot on the property.
  3. Start some relaxed conversations for about 20 or so minutes to lighten the mood.
  4. Have the group sit around a round table.
  5. Turn down the lights and play classical music or something soothing without lyrics. Light candles scented with sandalwood.
  6. Chant the name of the deceased and ask them to join you. Ask the others there to chant with you.
  7. Remember that the spirits cannot harm you.
  8. Greet them when you feel their presence. Recognize that they are there. Think of questions you’d like to ask them and have members of the group ask their questions.
  9. One thing to remember is that tables levitating and ghosts appearing is something you only see in movies.
