Summary

An autobiographical book about the extraordinary experiences of the son of a physical medium. As Professor David Fontana, former President of the Society for Psychical Research says in his foreword to this book. "This is a remarkable book by a remarkable man. Tom Harrison is one of those very rare individuals who have been privileged to witness, over a number of years, and in conditions that effectively rule out the possibility of trickery, some of the most amazing s´┐Żance room phenomena reported since the days of D. D. Home and Eusapia Paladino. These phenomena included ectoplasm, materialisations, conversations with spirits, apports, and touches by spirit hands, all of these things taking place in good light and in close proximity to the sitters. For many, the events described in this book may sound miraculous, but for Tom there was no miracle about them. They were simply part of the facts of life." Born into a Spiritualist family, Tom witnessed members of his family speaking in trance at an early age. At the end of his teens he attended, with his mother, a Helen Duncan seance. After 7 years army service throughout the war Tom returned home to take up his life as a family man and record the development of the family Home Circle where his mother was the medium. Within 8 months they had fully formed ectoplasmic spirit people standing in the room with them. Many of them were known to the circle but others were only known to the guests who sat with them from time to time. This circle continued for 8/9 years before his mother died from the cancer which had dogged her for 18 years. Throughout his life Tom has told people of his experiences and shown them the photographs which were taken in the circle in the 1940s. All these photographs are included in the book. But the phenomena didn't stop 50 years ago. Since early in the 1990s Tom has sat regularly with Stewart Alexander in the North of England and has witnessed wonderful phenomena there and also in his own home circle with another medium. All these experiences he shares with you in this book to give evidence to you that we do live on after death and given chance can return to communicate.
