Is Spiritualism Real?

abracad, · Categories: spiritualism

Readings Received at 2 local Spiritualist Churches: January 2013 - April 2015


I attended regularly (more or less weekly, with some gaps) one of two local Spiritualist churches for some years to mid-2015 (when I stopped attending for various reasons). This article summarises and attempts to assess for accuracy and meaning this briefest snapshot of Spiritualist practice.


In order to obtain an “objective” score, each testable statement made by the medium was given an estimated probability (and hence odds) of being correct given information available to medium (eg my appearance, previous answers in reading, potential memory of previous readings etc). Statements were treated as unit stake “bets” at assessed odds. NB: i) where statement was true but in very broad sense (eg name was someone I knew casually many years ago) bet was calculated at less than unit stake; ii) estimated odds  may unconsciously reflect my desire for Spiritualism to be real. Score is total return/loss of all bets for a reading.


Although very far from conclusive, my experiences suggest that something unusual is going on, ie mediums can access knowledge that is not available from or by logical deduction from their perception of material reality.

Much of the content of Spiritualist messages is very general in nature and could be accepted by most participants, eg: “you tend to doubt yourself”, or common names likely to have been encountered at some point in a person’s life.

Observation of other people’s messages reveals a high percentage of agreement with the medium’s statements, however this must be considered with 1) most people attending a Spiritualist meeting either believe / want to believe in Spiritualism; 2) general human nature to agree.

Messages appear to contain a lot of “noise” (generalities, un-testable statements) but in totality appear to present a little higher hit rate than might be expected by chance. This accords with the psi research of parapsychology, in which a few percent above chance is considered success, but when numerous trials and studies are considered in totality represents strong evidence [eg Selected Psi Research Publications, Dean Radin] of many millions to one of the existence of psychic functioning.

Spiritualist information could come from somewhere other than the surviving personality of deceased individuals, eg from mind of the recipient and/or universal consciousness.

Horses - like looking at horses in distance. Gentleman, 5ft9, digestive problems, family. Wellington boots. Concrete. Things have been very "hair-raising". Things are 9/10 sorted out, be patient last bit will take a bit longer to sort out. Things have been topsy-turvy - like concrete mixer. Feel very stuck at the moment - like in concrete. Guards uniform. Snails. You need healing in a different kind of way, had trauma, private person, but know Spirit is giving you protection. (+6.5)

My mother sadly passed away in January 2017. At time of writing (April 2017), and prompted by her loss, I have attended 3 public Spiritualist demonstrations in London. At the first I did not receive a message. At the second (a psychometry reading to which I took her address book) I was given a reading but considered it inaccurate. At the third I did not receive a message, but at the end of a message to someone else the medium gave the name Whitstable, which is the small town where my Mum passed away, it was not taken by the recipient, nor did the medium throw it open to the room. Whitstable is some 100km from London, and I guess there are 100s of such towns within this radius of London. Might it be that in a public demonstration the medium is aware of multiple inputs from “Spirit” clamouring for attention, among which my mum was one, but was lost in the noise? Or is this clutching at straws?
