I performed pg and luna today and it went really well. it went so well in fact one of the people that was sitting a little ways away from the performance area came up to me after my show and asked....how much do you charge to do a séance in someones home.
not really thinking about it I \asked what type of séance they wanted? the lady looked at me like I had two heads and stated y....." The one you use to talk to the spirits what other kinds are their?"

it took me a minute to realize she was actually talking about a real séance not an entertainment show. it took me a second to form a reply.... I told her, I'm sorry but I only perform entertainment séances not the real thing.

as hard as I tried she wouldn't buy it. she walked out not believing that what I did was just a show and not a real life paranormal event. I'm flattered really I am but..... how do you handle sitters that believe it no matter what you say to try and be honest with them?

this lady wasn't even in the audiance but with another group away from my performing area.

Yes, and it's quite embarrassing because you don't want to offend anyone's beliefs or feelings.
I just politely decline and say I don't have the strength, and besides sometimes personal contacts are best left alive I the memory of the living as joyous, happy times past.

The most amusing was being asked to help the police on a murder investigation (I kid you not!).

Docsteve lol yes I can see where that would be a hard thing to respond to.

this lady doesn't want to contact a friend from what I gather she wants to rid her house of spooks that are having a bit of fun with her belongings.

it is amazing how persistent they are in believing that we can actually help them. it makes me feel bad to tell them no.

I think I need to start performing for older folks. Young people, specifally those of univiersity age are usually very skeptical..

Actually I perform for a wide age range as I'm performing 4 times a week lun@ plays for high school and up, sanctum performs very well for the same age ranges. if you want to add a little more strength just have a couple decks of tarot for some reason just having them gives you lot of believability for most people as they all know what they are.

Michael,

I made a similar post before. I don't know if you read it but, I felt that it started a good conversation on seance ethics when we are asked to make personal and private contact with loved one. All of the people here had wonderful suggestions and made excellent comments.

Yes I just read it. great topic and guidance there. if you have not done so you may wish to try a old out of print book called
have séance will travel. by brother shadow. from my perspective that séance is exactly what is needed in that situation.
as it takes the sitters into their own mind and helps them make a personal contact with a passed loved one.

Yeah, Michael, everyone did a really good job in that thread. I will definately be on the lookout for Have Seance Will Travel. It sounds like it will be a good read.

Gracias!
