UK Mediums from The Scole Experiment

Reflections on "The Scole Experiment"

 

 - Alan and Diana Bennett -

 

OUR INTEREST in Spiritual matters spans many years and goes back long before the Scole Experiment was conceived. For myself, as a child, I was aware of many things outside of the normal range of those around me. I would see or speak with forms of those that had passed on but this never happened to me in a frightening way, I hasten to add. It was more frightening to be having these experiences when others were not.

Alan also had unexplained experiences, as a child. One occurred when he was in his cot, a young couple came and looked at him and smiled. He remembers seeing through them, as if they were formed from tiny specks of light. These images are as fresh today as the time they were experienced, like a sort of spiritual imprint on our minds.

Each house we occupied since we married has had 'interactive energies' of various types. Lights would go on and off of their own accord, during the day and night. We were aware of 'other' presences, which were no particular problem really so we happily co-habited with them.

While our children were young we moved to Norfolk into a particularly 'active' house. We did all sorts of improvements, which may have triggered this off. Even then Spirit took care not to scare the children and only played with the lights when they were not around. They would be turned on in another room and left on until we turned them off, only to find them on again later! Several occasions they turned the light off when we were in the room, which can be annoying not to mention unnerving. Eventually we found that by asking for the lights to be put back on, they were. One memorable night we were both levitated in our armchairs but it only happened to us once and was never repeated thankfully, as it was a bit unexpected! 

Some years later, we decided to build a new house, a house with no associations, we were tired of 'active' houses. During this phase of our lives we were exploring mediumship, reading lots of books and going to demonstrations etc. We decided to meditate regularly and sit together, each giving focus to the other in turn. Our development proceeded at a steady pace alongside our busy lives. On one occasion a light bulb blew and an initial was burnt onto the inside of the glass globe. This happened to be the initial of the communicator at that time. This really intrigued us and we discussed our thoughts regarding studying this kind of phenomena. Soon after this a loud audible rap was heard coming from the table, as if in answer. This made us investigate physical psychic phenomena as tangible objective proof of the survival of the human spirit. However, the time was not right, our lives were too occupied with other matters.

So, we continued to focus on our development. The channelling and communication was getting better as we were now sitting together twice weekly on a regular basis. We found the energy was particularly good when we focused together for a common purpose. Again, the lights would flicker or go out during these sessions or at times bulbs would fly out from their bayonet fittings, and land across the other side of the room, unbroken! After this happened twice we tried hard to see if we could make this happen 'normally', but it never did.

The energies were becoming more apparent in the room in other ways too. Sometimes it was difficult to see one another, as the swirls of energy became so dense and colourful. One day a really funny 'teleport' arrived in our hallway. The previous day the middle of our toilet roll holder had broken, just a minor 'inconvenience' (pardon the pun) as our nearest hardware shop was over five miles away. The next morning, there in the middle of our hall floor, lay a brand new wooden one, better than the one we had! We were very grateful! It fitted perfectly!

One day we saw an advert for sitters for a Physical Circle with Robin and Sandra. We telephoned them an arranged to meet later that week. Some members had left the group and we were invited to join the rest, now that the group was being reformed. At that time we were happy to give energies to help to get some phenomena started and we continued like this for some time but with only limited results.

What none of us knew was that Spirit had destined us all for some new and exciting work. They conspired to create a situation one night when only Alan, Robin and myself were present. "Oh well", said Robin, ever the positive enthusiast, "tonight, anything goes"! On that memorable night Spirit opened a door to 'energy' work.

I felt myself going deeper and deeper as if I was stepping back from myself and being engulfed in a soft loving energy. The atmosphere. was 'electric' and I remember seeing energy swirls in front of me. I felt physically big and my back and head were erect and aligned. I knew that I was going to be used, and tonight 'anything goes', so I just surrendered to the wonderful feeling and let go. Manu (a Spirit Helper, I had previously been unaware of) came through and spoke to us. A coin was 'teleported' and he said this was a token of greater things to come. I have no idea how long he was present and it took a while for me to gradually come back to a waking state.

Many patient weeks followed and Alan's development began to flourish. Manu came when it was appropriate as the energy was being shared.

Alan had different experiences to mine when going into trance, he described the initial stage as similar to the sensation of falling backwards with your eyes closed. He felt perfectly comfortable with this, as there was an overwhelming feeling of love that 'cocooned' him from any anxieties. He can remember floating, flying, and swimming all at the same time, and in what he describes as a sea of perfect bliss. Patrick, was the first of Alan's guides to speak and soon settled in, bringing us information (and humorous comments) on a regular basis. Patrick once described the sensation he experienced when coming through as 'like swimming through warm custard'! An experience most of us would not wish to try in reality, but you can see what he was trying to express.

We both agree that these experiences gave us insights into other 'states of consciousness', where time and space ceases to exit as we know it. Each of us felt different, the whole group's energy had changed, it seemed somehow 'lighter' working with energy. A trust built up well between the communicators and the group. Much of what was said was based on good evidence of survival and this gave a solid foundation both for us and the other sitters in the group. We were being taught and guided to live our lives in a more spiritual way. Gently coaxed and reminded to meditate and to always link up at night with the 'Universal Harmony'. This seemed to aid them to link with us in the sleep state, though this did not deplete us in any way.

As time went on the phenomenon developed and the spirit lights began. Glad as Alan and I were to be a part of all this wonderful work, our only disappointment was not seeing these things like the others. Then one day the communicators said that for the next session we would not be used in deep trance so we could have a different experience. So, when this special time came we were able to see a limited 'light display'. We will never forget this and could well understand the 'oh's and ah's' we heard when we listened to the taped recordings of future sessions.

 

A Short History about the Scole Experiments,.

Robin and Sandra Foy are Psychic Researchers who have specialised in investigating Physical Mediumship and Physical Phenomena in depth for 37 years now. Consequently their unique experiences qualify them to be recognised as two of the most knowledgeable people in the world regarding this specialised subject. 

 

Over the years, they have sat with numerous Physical Mediums including: Leslie Flint, Gordon Higginson, John Squires, Geoffrey Jacobs, Colin Fry, Stewart Alexander, David Thompson, Mavis King,Paul McElhoney,Scott Milligan, Diana and Alan Bennett plus Tom and Linda Anderson (from the Freedom of Spirit group), S. London Theatre School Circle and the Yellow Cloud Circle of Eternal Illumination, Kai Muege of the  Felix Experimental Group on a number of occasions; as well as conducting several Home Circles of their own for the development of physical phenomena; some of these produced very positive results. Whilst they do not class themselves as Spiritualists, or have any connection with Spiritualism as such, they do see themselves as Spiritual Scientists, and approach the important subject of Spiritual Science with a primarily scientific motivation. 

 

 Robin and Sandra were also co-founders of the ISM Link of Home circles and the New Spiritual Science Foundation. Additionally, Robin was the personal founder of the Noah's Ark Society for Physical Mediumship in 1990.

 

They moved to Street Farmhouse in Scole, Norfolk (a village in East Anglia on the borders of Norfolk and Suffolk) in 1991. It was there, at the end of 1992 that they recruited five more group members to help them sit for the development of Physical Phenomena. This was the start of what became the Scole Experimental Group, and The Scole Experiment itself has become quite famous following the publication of the book of the same name by Grant and Jane Solomon in 1999. The amazing and unique psychic physical phenomena which the group developed was at its height between November 1993 and November 1998, when the experiment finished.

 

During that time, through natural wastage, the Scole group's original seven members eventually fell to just four. The reduction of numbers, however, did not seem to adversely affect the phenomena. In fact, if anything - with only the four regular sitters - the quality and quantity of the physical phenomena that occurred further increased quite dramatically! The final four group members were just Diana and Alan Bennett, together with Robin and Sandra Foy. Diana and Alan were the two deep trance mediums, with Robin and Sandra as the observers. Consequently, Diana and Alan (apart from a very few isolated occasions) were in a totally unconscious state throughout the sittings. When we examined the records of the Scole experimental sessions (including the many demonstrations of the phenomena to the public that took place both in the UK and overseas) we discovered that we had in fact  experienced over 1,000 hours of physical psychic phenomena throughout the life of the Scole Experiment. 

 

The Scole Group were investigated by three senior members of the prestigious SPR (the Society for Psychical Research) over a period of two years; two of them - Professors Arthur Ellison and David Fontana - were scientists. The third, Monty Keen, was an agronomist; parliamentary lobbyist, farmer and lecturer. In 2000, they jointly produced a very thick volume of the SPR Proceedings that is now known as 'The Scole Report'. Since the annals of the SPR are normally quite sceptical, this 450 page report was fairly unique in being predominantly supportive of the legitimacy of the Scole Experiment.

 

In fact, the Scole Experiment itself has been hailed by many as some of the best evidence ever for the reality of 'Life After Death', and of other dimensions.

 

Robin P Foy is the author of two books. His first, In Pursuit of Physical Mediumship (Janus 1996), is still available from Janus (and amazon.co.uk) as a paperback today. It is a psychic autobiography of Robin's earlier experiences of physical mediumship to date at that time.

 

This new book Witnessing the Impossible has taken several years to write and is in stock both in the UK and in Spain where Robin and Sandra now live. It is a very large, heavy book in Hardback format (584 pages). Since Robin and Sandra were the only people in the whole world to witness every session of the Scole Experiment from start to finish, and since many of the reports of Scole and its phenomena have become inaccurate in the telling, as they have been forwarded on several times, Robin felt that it was important to tell the whole story of the Scole Experiment from beginning to end, as a labour of love. 

 

Consequently this unexpurgated story of Scole in the only Complete and Accurate account from start to finish of every sitting of the Scole Experimental Group. Consequently, it is written in a non-conventional format. After the Author's Foreword, the first three chapters are by way of introduction. The rest of the book is written in a diary format of each sitting. The book is a must; a vital tool for the serious psychic researcher into physical phenomena and the Scole Experiment itself as it is so detailed, but it will also appeal to anybody who really wishes to know the reality of post mortem survival, and of other dimensions too.

 

Physical Mediumship is totally different from Mental Mediumship. Firstly, it is extremely rare at the moment, with only a handful of physical mediums giving public demonstrations. When physical mediumship is taking place, everybody who is present is able to witness it. It is real. It is indeed PHYSICAL. The 'evidence' of Post Mortem survival, however, which can be obtained through this type of mediumship is truly life-changing. 

 

Physical Mediums are sometimes 'born'. Especially those who work in the more traditional way, where their mediumship is Ectoplasm-based. Not everybody can be a physical medium working in this way. They need to be extremely dedicated, and their personal development as a physical medium can take many years before they achieve any success. Furthermore, each time they sit in a 'seance' they endanger their own lives.

 

A newer, more modern form of Physical Mediumship and Physical Phenomena was pioneered in the 1990's however, by the dedicated group of psychic researchers in Norfolk UK, known as the Scole Experimental Group (led by Robin and Sandra) who worked in full co-operation with a wonderful team of spirit scientists, guides and helpers. The phenomena that was developed through this group was Energy-based and breathtaking. It did not require a single physical medium as such, although two of the group members remained in deep trance throughout. Every member of the group contributed to the phenomena. There was no danger involved to sitters or mediums by working in this way; it could be developed quicker, and was more versatile. Many more groups have gone on since to achieve spectacular phenomena in a similar energy-based way.
