RARE ECTOPLASM PHOTOS with Kai Muegge - today Leonard Stott...


Today we again present photo(s) of high strangeness with, characteristical for contemporary western spirit ceremonies, the mysterious artifact ectoplasm visible in it.
Parallel to the growing manifestation of phenomena in western séance-room environment, materialized spirit-hands were from beginning on a frequent visitor, regularly reported and described. As more or less independently operating hands without a body, but executing tasks as if attached to a body. Sometimes humanly fleshy, somethimes flat and looking like cut out, but still enabled to move fingers still independently.

Materialized hands though could be only rarely photographed with a few exceptions.
One of these is todays 'Rare Photograph'. Actually another sequence of images from this particular medium can be commonly found in books about spiritualism or photography then. It is indeed a quite famous sequence, even though for a long time not even the mediums name was undisputed, before it became clear his name was Leonard Stott.

Thats the only information available today in public. Fodor doesn't have him in his enzyclopedia, nor do we find any deeper information about him anywhere else. Not even the dates of the photos is known.

After a little effort we know now these photos were taken in 1946 in Canada, in Toronto or Ontario in a very christian Quaker-related environment, that was very much interested at that time in manifestations of mediumship.

During their experiments in 1946 with the trumpet- and physical- or materialization-medium Leonard Stott a famous sequence of images were shot...

One of the famous images shot with Stott in 1946
Besides this one out of the well known sequence of photos we gonna present today two photos not so well known from that time.
The main one is characterized by the materialization of a spirit hand and the other less known shows again Stotts Quaker friends Sherwood Eddy and Edward C. Wood and a floating trumpet in front of the medium Leonard Stott.

The more spectacular one has the mysterious spirit hand on it. The trumpet floats connected by an ectoplasmic rod running down on mediums upper body and looking towards the lady controlling Stott by holding him on both hands. On his shoulder though there is a peculiar additional strange artifact: Seemingly a small materialized hand opened as if holding a ball.

Todays rare photo: Stott and the materialized hand...
Lets have a look at other photographs showing this rarely photographed event: A materilaized Spirit hand.

Linda Gazerra investigated and photographed by Schrenck in Italy. Behind her at the curtain you see the independent hand not belonging to the medium...

Scientific test séance for the American Society for Psychical Research with Margery. From her lower body a hand emerges leaving in a piece of wax the fingerprints of Margeries deceased brother...

Scientific test séances for the London Society for Psychical Research. Marthe Béraud produces a strange hand on her shoulder...
The incredible Eusapia Paladino, held at her hands by the experimenter E. Flourion suddenly above her head two more hands appear. This has happened several times during her career and was several times photographed...

We hope you enjoyed our little presentation today!
With best wishes from the séance room!

A PLEA FOR A SOBER LOOK - German Professor holds and analyzes more than 50 Gary Mannion test-séances...


THE OUTCRY
The outcry was great. A secretive shot several years ago revealed the physical medium Gary Mannion freed from his control bondage and seemingly accomplishing typical Séance-room phenomena in the darkness himself. An international outcry was the result. The critics had only been waiting for something like this, and even inside the Spiritualist Movement they showed themselves relentless. In the group of spiritualists - or rather survivalists - there was not a single attempt to subject the event to more complex analyzes. There was absolutely no attempt in the institutionalized scene (publications, faculties and associations of all kinds) to examine alternative causes besides fraud rather than simply to stamp out the mediumship and personality of the medium.

The illegally produced video and its unlawful publication provided too perfect a screen for those who would like to negate the manifestative forms within spirituality for ideological, personal or competitive reasons. The only ones who jumped in for their medium at that time were the spokesmen of his home circle in Australia, who held evidence in hand Professor Kruse found out for himself years later, that the video could not reveal the whole truth about Mr. Mannion's mediumship skills.

Understandably, however, these could hardly be heard within that concerted outcry that had obviously been planned with the international release of the video.

BASED ON FACTS
And reasons to ask all sorts of questions, to establish a historical context and to question the moral examples that are repeatedly stated of mediums, there would have been enough!
Professor Kruse does not do this kind of historical and social analysis. But it's not his job. Professor Kruse does what enables us to ask the right questions in this context based on facts.

But can one trust a German professor? E. Kruse is a professor of computer science at the Dual University of Baden-Württemberg-Mannheim and parapsychologist and - often together with partner Dr. med. Heike Bauder - a typical upright representative of the scientific guild, if there is such a thing. I mean, what distinguishes him as a human, because I know him - he is analytical, intelligent, careful, testing, reserved, analytical, progressive, technical, versatile, honest, humorous, straightforward and ... analytical! A clever head - and you have to be well - at a professorship in computer science!

Not one who could be fooled around x for u. In his research always on 'waterproofness' considered. This has already earned him the first parapsychological publications, including the SPR, the Paranormal Review, and peer-reviewed journals such as the Society for Scientific Exploration. You can trust a German professor and even more one like Eckhard Kruse.
A Prof.Kruse CGI of a séance with Kai Muegge at the Basle Psi-Association...
SO WHAT DOES IT SHOW THEN
And this Eckhard Kruse has proven in a scientific documentation that is many times larger than the published website, physical phenomena in the mediumship of Gary Mannion. It is hard to imagine negating his findings in its entirety! The full report is available in English on Prof Kruse's website!

Yeah, but if that's so, Gary Mannion is not a fraud now, how do you rate the video now that it's clear that the medium is indeed capable of triggering genuine effects of the séance-room? So what does it show then? Has there ever been such a thing in the history of mediumship before? Was the medium freed by its spirits or was it only helping out on a weak day?

Only helped out on a weak day? What is commonplace in other parts of society, politics and science (more than 31% of the population claims to have 'helped themselves out' in delicate situations in their job - the dark digit is hereby more than the double the number) is unthinkable in mediumship. Time and time again, moral examples were stated of mediums seemingly nobody else in society would be able to fulfill. Once the suspicion was publicly stated, mediums were de-classified. 'Thrown away' by a spiritualist establishment and worth no second chance or look, though 'helping out' - to a certain extent of course - is quite clearly in anthropology regarded as simply human. Life and people are not just black or white ...!

How Mannions arm is attached to a motion-sensor during the sessions...
RAISING QUESTIONS
Of course, this raises questions about how we deal with our next in such a case - in our humanitarian movement. It raises social questions about honesty, for example in politics and science. Very often scientists were involved in directing mediums onto the public scaffold. Representatives of a guild who were and are even affected by the most scandalous frauds. Namely, the 'PhD' fraud, drug fraud, medical billing fraud, fraud in scientific expertises, data and statistics fraud, and fraud to publish on the highly competitive scientific publishing market, etc., etc., etc.! And from these circles the absolute relentlessness against alleged misconduct of mediums was and is particularly demanded again and again!

Should I continue with scams in politics? We're already sick, I'm giving it up!

THE PHARISEES
Only a handful of medium-researchers knew and reacted onto the problem with the Pharisees in the Movement and wanted to protect their mediums, which they could sometimes watch in the smaller or larger helping hands, even though they undoubtedly were among the greatest mediums of all times. This included names like E. Palladino or Jan Guzik or Indridi Indridason.

One of the most telling cases is the Indridi Indridasons. For nearly a century, those researchers who could read and understand the original Icelandic protocols held back the fact that, despite Indridi's undoubtedly was one of the most impressive physical mediums ever, they once caught him in the act of cheating. For a century from their pens was read exclusively about his great phenomena that Indridi was able to trigger, such as the loud singing of multiple voices in different places inside and outside the experimental space, almost violent self-levitations that reared up his body into the air in a way that the inspectors who held his hands were afraid to be carried along, and much more, but nothing about any attempted fraud.

They wanted to protect him -as their medium in the first place, but at least they wanted to protect him instead of throwing him in front of the wolves knowing which undifferentiated judging would be charge for them. Yes they had cheated, usually in front of them or when they had a weak day, but their mediumship was too valuable to throw it away. Unfortunately not all involved parties think that way!
So it was not until 2017 - 107 years after his death and his career - that the intentionally withheld photographic material on Indridi was revealed, intending to raise same questions that we face in the case of Gary Mannion.

TRANSFIGURING?
However, in the case of Gary Mannion, we tend not to believe that he has 'helped out' this evening. Do not believe that he, knowing about possessing capabilities, probably felt legitimized to substitute them!?

For Mr. Mannion it allegedly was all puzzling, how he became freed from the cable-binds, but found 'in control' at the end of the séance in his tight and marked cable ties tied into the chair. The illegal video shows even this particular process, which apparently lasted only 1 to 2 seconds and happening  behind 'the curtains' of his 'Cabinet' serving one-man tent. Something fraudulently impossible to accomplish - and certainly not in this short period of time.

So what was really going on? This question leads us to another taboo within the movement! Gary says everything happened unconsciously and the spirits released him and put him back in the cable-tied control of the séance. And he does not really know any more about that!
One of the guests of the evening even checked at the end of the séance the cable-ties and declared everything as 'correctly attached' and additionally 'correctly' marked with a black pen.

One of the test-locations, the Wallacia Development Center of Inge Crosson, near Sydney, of course without the home-circle present...
FREED BY SUPERNATURAL MEANS
The truth is that over and over again, mediums were being freed by their supernatural 'spirits' or by their supernatural powers, from their seemingly insurmountable control bonds! For this reason, since the beginning of the experiments in the Experimental Spiritism in GERMANY in the midst 19th century, the mediums are hands-on secured and held at limbs and not tied up to avoid such or similar misunderstandings.

Helen Duncan, for example, tied up, tied into a sack and secured with several wax seals, was often seen standing in front of the cabinet for a few minutes after the white light was extinguished and doing things that people did not understand. This rarely led to allegations, as Helen ended up - just as puzzling - again in her original bondage controls in her chair. Still it was understood as a phenomenological act as a whole - by the spirits and called it 'transfiguration': the medium embodies - freed through the spirits - their will!

More recently, the medium Stewart Alexander demonstrated in almost every one of his séances how the 'Spirit Team' freed him from his cable-ties within a second and just as quickly tied him up again. At that time, however, the binding control was publicly communicated as an insurmountable control instance, which it obviously is  not!

So the case of Mannion is a case of liberation by the Spirits and Transfiguration in the following!?

SENSITIVITY MIRRORS OTHERS DECEPTION
Or was everything totally different and in the sensitive trance-state- and subsequently in the entranced actions of the medium - the unconsciously perceived intent to deceive him somehow became mirrored and literally realized in his own doings! Manifested through his unquestionably existing mediumistic abilities....!
All these differentiated questions about Mannion were rarely asked, and Prof. Kruse now provides hard data, so perhaps for the first time to consider the case so differentiated!

In fact, his highly interesting website is only a very small part of his enduring work with the medium Mannion (full report available on the website to download!) - and yet a very important contribution to the field of 'manifestative' forms within spirituality - or Physical Mediumship.

We therefore refer the esteemed reader once more to

Prof. Kruse's exciting web page!

AN AMERICAN GIFT / A SACRED RELIC - THE PROTECTION RING OF KEITH RILTON MINEHEART (Pseudo)

The Protection Ring of Keith Rilton Mineheart
An amazing gift was given to me by a far, but close friend with who I am connected because of our both passions and love and respect for an astounding Medium and Personality. A medium who never - despite a lot of critique - negated the manifestative aspects in his mediumship, in the contrary. Moreover he wasn't under the spell of the spiritualistic doctrine, went an American way of New Age theosophy, guided by the Ascended Masters, was a social defender of human rights and maybe the greatest Trance-Speech-Medium of Modern Times.


After the death of this great man in the late 90ies a bitter dispute was beginning between the successor in leadership in the foundation he once had founded and several long term members. 

Not to get caught inbetween the frontlines we call 

the Medium in the following

'Keith Rilton Mineheart'

- and the Foundation and its churches, 

'the Aries-Foundation'.


The fire agate in this 'rare and unique work' (jeweler) is a fascinating stone with an internal special fire, made from inner compounds that endanger it to break more easily, like the 'opal' as well...

A fascinating personality

Where the fascination for this man is coming from is not hard to explain. He was like me a physical medium of modern days society, he was a fascinating personality, fighting for gay and transgender rights from the early 70ies on, being himself gay and even starting in his later life a gender reassignment. Northern American Indian Societies are looking at gay or even trans-sexual contemporaries very respectful and associating great powers with them - like those Keith Rilton did early display in his life.

KRM and the Count de St. Germain

He became a world renowned medium, charismatic and an extraordinary trance-channel! His trance-speeches can be counted to the most powerful and substantial trance speeches in the history of Western Modern Times Spirituality, usually represented through the movement called 'Modern Spiritualism': Spirit Communication in the Western Modern Age! Beginning 1848 in America and reshaped over the years into a survivalistic doctrine though, tirelessly intending to prove the survival of the ego after the transition into afterlife-realms.

Minehearts mediumship knew that it was a delusion! Helping the bereaved yes, immortality of consciousness yes, but Mineheart was aware, every secret teaching of the world was exercised to get rid of the ego, free the source-compound of the soul, and not clinging to the ego instead! Mineheart worked in a Blavatskarian theosphical 'Ascended Masters'-System to communicate meaning and wisdom to his followers with aspects taken from ancient teachings, wanting to form a New Age Society of high moral and social ethics. Strengthened and underlined his teachings were by an array of physical phenomena through the spirits he was communicating with,
the Masters of the Universe, the Ascended Masters!
The Spirit Materialization of Ascended Master El Morya Khan, 2016 in Thun, on the premises of the Thun Experimental Circle of Switzerland, wearing a shiny blue Stone on its forehead (image by Arnfinn)...

Masters of the Universe

His phenomena were investigated and approved by scientists and institutes from many different countries, like for example from Japan very early in the 50ies. Unfortunately today the Aries-Foundation withholds every document revealing these tests whatsoever, like the majority of any material or information about Keiths work in a whole ...! About the motives for the successor in leadership after Reverend Minehearts death to behave that way there are different opinions out there. Fact is, besides two images and a single web-page about his work, it's nothing published about him on behalf of his own foundation!? And it, owning a trademark right over his name even, will use it and sue you if you publish any material about him.

And so the public knows very little about his work, neither about his spirit-communications, nor about the massive physical phenomena happening around him. One account about a combined séance with Alec Harris is publicly available, like accounts about séances he had held in one of his churches...!

Most of the images and video-material that exists privately show Reverend Mineheart apporting objects from head orifices! This is the link! When identical phenomenon started to happen in my mediumship during an USA visit years ago, I became overshadowed by him for the first time! 

Keith Rilton Mineheart materialized? Despite his claims never to materialize Keith Rilton Mineheart did in our séances. In this instance we only believe it was him, because he couldn't speak, contrary to other occasions...

The Link - Overshadowed by Keith Rilton Minehearts spirit...

We did not communicate the presence of Rev. Minehearts spirit that night. Nor did we communicate, resp. publish any information about his materialized return sometimes later! We knew that he had allegedly said he would not materialize with any future medium, but in our circle he did! 

Short time later then El Morya materialized in a blazing blue light in Thun, Switzerland and spoke about the allignment of spiritual teachings. The Mineheart himself materialized and talked to the participants of the séance, complaining about what has become of his heritage. He was aware of the controversy breaking loose in conection with his Materialization and revealed he would only return in secluded private gatherings of my circles, what he did.

 In a later séance then also 'John King' materialized at the BPV, Basle, extensively photographed. 'John King' was - before he became more renowned via his 'Katie King'- and Eusapia Paladino-Connection - a spirit guide of Helena Blavatsky. He had spiritually emerged from the
Ascended Master El Morya. 

Again later Henry Olcott, contemporary  confederate and friend of Helena Blavasky, materialized as well in Basle and was extensively photographed. It was Helena Blavatskys and Henry Olcotts interpretation of Theosophy that made Mineheart tick mainly, trance-communication-wise! 

In regards to the spiritual nature of  these manifestations the presence of 

Keith Rilton Mineheart in my mediumship was the closest connection 

and him possibly the instigator of them all.


Reverend Barney MacNamara (pseudo), who ran Minehearts Aries-Foundation Churches in another state I met for the first time 2014 together with Reverend Kevin Lee
from the Metaphysical Chapel of South Florida.
Barney knew KRM of course personally. We all immediately befriended. Reverend Kevin Lee is a well known spiritual activist himself and superhost for mediums demonstrating absolute unique spiritual techniques in public! 
Keith Rilton Mineheart energy in craft for the first time several years ago during demonstrations...

'A Sacred Relic'

We all melted in our deep respect and appreciation honoring the work of KRM.
Reverend Barney expressed from early on his believe in KRM's influence in my mediumship.
His spirits told him the same. When I had birthday in September 2019 Reverend Barney decided to overhand me a very special gift, a 'sacred relic', once given to him, as he writes in his letter to me, wanting to strengthen the spiritual bond existing between us all and Mineheart!

2 weeks ago finally Reverend Kevin Lee overhanded me Barneys gift with an accompanying letter.
It was headlined 'For Kai - A Memory of Keith Rilton Mineheart'...
When I began to read I had not yet opened the golden purse I held in my hands, containing the red silk cloth enwrapping Minehearts protection ring, (quote) 'that was custom-made for him (...) in the late 70's' (quote end).

In his letter Reverend Barney MacNamara revealed that Keith Rilton Mineheart was recommending the 'fire agate' (quote) 'all light-workers as auric shields, helping the wearers to add protection around themselves from any environmental or remote negative influences' (quote end).

Traces of 50 years of existence

'Fire agate', like the 'opal', is a very sensible stone, made out of compounds inside of it. Therefore they can more easily break and so I yesterday brought it to a befriended jeweler, who will carefully secure the stone against the traces time has left on the ring. Not knowing anything about the ring he instantly said: 'Oh, there you have something very, very unique and extraordinary! This kind of work is not anymore made today and this is very rare!' With a fine acrylic lacquer the fissure in the agate will now be sealed to prevent it from falling out of the ring.

To secure it for future generations of the Tradition of Western Spirituality.
Please share with me the delight about this very special gift and the thankfulness about becoming the protector of this relic and its wearer at very special events! To Reverend MacNamara and the spirits that shape our ways and forms in a mysterious world!

SO BE IT!
