Originally the first time published were Randones psychic feats after photographic experimentations with the photographer Benedetto in Carreras "Luc e Ombra". When the first image of the materialized spirit form was achieved, we present here, it was the 18th of March 1901. The announced phenomena were prepared by a spirit team and with a friend of the Family, a Miss Maaza, the experiment began early in the morning.
In the corner of a room two chairs were prepared, one for the medium, one for an announced spirit entity, no one knew if it would be able to achieve to materialize. In the opposite corner, the photographer, the mediums brother Filipo, and the familiy's friend were waiting for the trance.
Still standing in front of this seating arrangement, the medium fell in trance and Filipo had to position his sister into focus. Then he reports: "Suddenly something appeared around my sister, what looked like cotton-wool. This substance grew into something like a cloud, now floating mainly upon the stool prepared for the spirit, that wanted to show up."
After the foglike substance retreated from its wrapping around the chair, before the eyes of the two witnesses, directly near the medium in a half lying position a second person with black eyes had appeared.
Miss Randone moaned heavily in that second and Miss Maaza overhanded to Filippo the photographic apparatus and he exposed the strange image for 30 seconds to the photographic plate.
Pic: The Phantom appears for the first time and could be identified weeks later by her own mother. Isabella, called Bebella, was the daughter of a local souvereign and died early in the age of 16
All in all after 11 minutes the phantom was gone. It vanished in short stages from the moment of the image-taking on. 3 seconds after the end of the plate-exposure to the light the form was completely dematerialized.
The weeks after this incident, many were shown the photo, but none was able to identify the spirit entity.
So during following seances, the spirit came through and announced she was a beautiful bride, that had died in 1889. She revealed specific details about her identity while she was speaking through the entranced medium.
"Bebella", how the sitters named her first, gave further information, that made it possible to identify her as the 16 year old daughter of a local souvereign, died of nephritis and scarlet fever so early.
Her original name was "Isabella" and her mother identified her without a doubt on the presented photo.

Pic: "Bebella" materialized the second time the 27th of June1901 and was from then on Randones main spirit control
3 months later, the 27th of June 1901, Miss Randone again fell into a deep trance. Immediately the same cloudlike substance appeared around her and again the phantom appeared out of it, this time draped in white and materialized from head to toe. Again they were able to take a photo, but because this time the light wasn't good it came out very dark.
From then on "Bebella" became one of Randones main controls and further on materialized regularly during her sittings. Moreover reported is, that Bebella produced flower apports mostly by day in front of many witnesses.
Miss Randone held successful seances until 1906.

Dear Friends, again we present today pictures from Brazilian Materialisation Experiments, that are not so well known under European Researchers. The captions being used are the originals of the specific publications where the pics once were published and do not represent the opinions of the authors of this bolg! Enjoy!Photography that shows the medium Antônio Alves Feitosa, supplier of the ectoplasma, with the spirit materialized directly behind him(Sister Josepha). On his right side Francisco Cândido Xavieir, another brazilian Medium is standing. This photography was done by Nedyr Mendes da Rochas in the year of 1965, in Uberaba, MG, using a camera WING marks Roleiflex and movie Kodacolor of 100. The development of the materialized figure was done in darkness, this photo was done by photo-flash. It is interesting to notice the ectoplasma coming out of the mouth of the medium, like if it were clothes, "falling" downwards to the ground. This materialisation was achieved through a "joined" mediumistic approach, and when this photography was done, a third medium, Otília Diogo, was seated inside the cabin.

Sister Josefa materialized in the city of Andradas, through Otília Diogo. The face of the entity is in no way identical with the face of the medium. This phenomenon also happened in a session arranged for local reporters.
The completed and now autonomous acting materialized form of Sister Josefa with her bulky and complicated clothes. The marvellous entity is hugging Francisco Cândido Xavier and Wanda Marlene. The photo, of Nedyr Mendes da Rochas was made in front of a group of attending medics. Notable photography of the materialisation of Sister Josefa, in Uberaba. Sometimes, during seances, sitters are able to witness, when her face undergoes various "modifications".
Waldo Scallop and the reporter José Franco being touched by Sister Josefa in the famous experimentation of the 3rd of January 1964.
The reporter Jorge Audi with Josefa posing beside him. Like José Franco, Audi had attitude of humility and deep respect when the materialização saw.The famous photography of the reporter Mário de Moraes beside the materialisation of a medical Doctor Alberto Veloso, discussing issues concerning the healing procedures following. (Photo of Nedyr Mendes da Rochas)Total Materialisation of Alberto Veloso, who was a surgeon working with Dr. Waldo Vieira, before he died.
Here we see a Materialisation Experiment from the Eighties with the medium Ivam Feirreira Castro in the Santuario de Frei Luiz.
And this is, what he materialises, the full form of a German doctor called "Friedrich Stein", who immediattely began to treat several sitters inside of the Seance Room.
Illustration of spirit control "Emmanuel's" magnificent Materialisation through the medium of Chico Xavier by the artist Joaquim Alves, of the Spiritualistic Federation of the State of Saint Paul-FEESP, who was present at the phenomenon. During Emanuels last appearance he said to the sitters: "Friends, the Materialisation is a phenomenon that can dazzle some, but let them also benefiting from physical cure. However, it is the power of the bible, it is like a rain that fertilizes the most beautiful flowers, reaching millions of souls. Because of the will of spirit, from this moment on, these meetings are terminated." And from that day, Chico - the discipline in person — never again carried out a materialisation seance

Materialisation of the spirit "Ana", in 14/12/1953, where the medium Peixotinho can be seen in ordeal (sic) laid on the bed. This medium carried out experiments at the home of Francisco Cândido Xavier allowing, through his faculty, in the main close friends of the sitters to materialise.

Another materialisation carried out by the medium Peixotinho. the peculiar face of the form was identified by sitters as a close friend, died during a car accident.

Process of extruding ectoplasm for a partial materialisation of the spirit of Lady Maria Gonçalves Duarte, who in life had been the wife of the spiritualistic Portuguese speaker, Isidoro Duarte Santos.

We hope you have enjoyed our little tour through the times and spaces of international Physical Mediumship. Upcoming there are peculiar other very seldom published images of international Physical Mediums through the centuries!
Be prepared.....(end)
