Translated through Google translate.

The young Carl Soderling died on April 10, 1948, he certainly carried the banner in Swedish Spiritualism along his earthly path. For nearly half a century he served as a medium and worked alongside the leaders of the movement, with whom he devote his life to a movement that stands and Spiritualism will stand in great debt to him. His father Carl Soderling was born April 11, 1873 in Kolbacks parish in Vastmanland. His father was an officer and spent most of his time away from home. The mother passed away when his son was only in two years' age. His father remarried, but it was poor in the home, and conditions in adolescence was very difficult.

 When his father dies ten years later, the young Carl's upbringing was taken over by a captain JE Beskow, master of a boat which traded on the shipping route from Sweden to Germany. Carl had to go on several trips and do the right thing as a ship's boy. Later he came to Stockholm, where he was employed as a clerk in a pipeline company, owned by a brother of Captain Beskow. This job he kept for many years.

 Already as a youth he was drawn to the religious life. After the confirmation, he entered the Salvation Army, but he does not fully connect with the movement. He then joined with great enthusiasm to the temperance movement, delivered speeches, declaimed and contributed to the entertainment at the meetings. He had the word of his power and was delighted to have an audience, to control and set.

In 1899 he married. His wife Elna shared his moral and religious interests, and with his practical mind, she became him very helpful and a valuable asset to the business, which would soon open up to him. Spiritualist Literature Association had by this time been around for twenty years, and there were a lot of spiritists and spiritualists in Stockholm at that time. Any significant connection could not talk about. In America, it was different and there was a Swedish-American, Dr A. A Alexanderson come in contact with the movement. Then he returned to Sweden organized organized Dr. Alexanderson a number of spiritualistic lecture in templarlokalen Tjärhovsgatan 14, to which the public was invited.

 One Sunday in December 1899 happened Soderling and his wife strolling past the room and saw the poster and went inside. The lecture was a revelation for them both, and they were frequent visitors to these meetings. Soon, they had friends within the spiritualist ranks. Soderling recalled some mysterious events from his childhood, memories that almost disappeared in oblivion ocean. Surely, he had always been media. Especially a thing was clear to him: the brother Torwalds death. Torwald went over the few years of age, when Carl was still a child. When the doctor came and noted the death, saw Carl brother fully evident in the spiritual guise, and heard him say: "Tell the doctor that Torwald not dead!" Blandly forwarded this greeting, but he would not have done. The result was ironing and admonitions. The result was that he did not dare to relate to such experiences in the future.

 Finally, Soderling was invited to a seance. Medium Miss Augusta Jonsson, who spoke in trance, but the preparations heard, that the room was completely dark. Probably was not the participants prepared for what would happen. Medium "began puffing like a steam engine 'and suddenly heard a baby talk (* Physical mediumship *," Article Printer interpretation ") But not fans there any children in the room! Soderling and his wife hardly knew what to think, it was not far from the promised each other never to attend a seance! But eventually changed their minds at this unreal ....

A desire to be self-medium occurred in Soderling, and developments came very quickly. One of his first friends in spiritualism, industrialist Eskil Werner says about this:

"One day my wife and I visited in their homes by Folkungagatan. We urged lot of spiritualism, which we considered as a truth, which could lead to salvation and fraternity, on the right was taken. Soderling confided to me then that he wanted become a trance medium, that he tried to put himself in a trance but not succeeded.

I then took both his hands in mine, his wife sang a religious song and I prayed to God to give him psychic power and ability, and that he would be a means to bring our cause forward. My prayer was immediately heard.

 Everything seemed to be above expectations. He fell asleep for a little while, and while I held his hands, he went into a deep trance. Through him emerged and spoke already this first time high intelligences, which uttered words rarely spoken by the human tongue. They gave us their names and the words were marked by deep religious feeling, love and understanding. In the beginning we were only a few participants during the sessions, as the family Soderling arranged in the home. But more and more sought access, and the small dwelling with one room and kitchen was crowded by fans, of which only a few were able to get seating.

 There were many wonderful messages through him, and many were convinced that their s. K dead, their loved ones, survived a higher and purer life in the spirit world. Many arrived mournful and walked away with rejoicing and joy in their hearts. But the neighbors complained that they were disturbed, and a new room for meetings must be sought. They found a refuge, which, however, was anything but ideal, in Maria Assembly old almshouses, Hornsgatan 27, a local who stood up before the house was demolished. It was unhygienic, with thick stone walls and small openings for windows and resembled more of a prison than a home for people, as it remained one time. But when seances initiated forgot to remove the surroundings.

 Among those who during this time often appeared by Soderling were many prominent writers and poets. Topelius and Rydberg spoke often in bound form. Which later resulted in books written as poetry and prose, he also wrote articles and spiritual books. No doubt inspired by the spirits who communicated through him, he found himself unable to write poetry as well as prose, yes, even drama, during the signature "Aries", he participated in various provincial newspapers with essays and poems. A collection of poems "Isissloja" were published 1909th

Later, in a very simple but suitable room at Ragvald Street 1 Soderling began collaboration with Dr. Alexanderson. Sessions alternating with lectures. Which ruled through a good spirit, and which was celebrated solemn moments that would never be forgotten. Especially solemnly was julottor the seance, organized by Soderling and his wife, due julpredikan by Dr. Alexanderson.

 Mary Karadja we became the turn often talked about in the press, and did much to interest the higher social classes of spiritualism. She invited foreign media to Stockholm, among others. Englishman Vout Peters, and Soderling was invited to participate in one of his seances. Mary Karadja had previously come to know Soderling, who at a meeting in the premises at Ragvald street but to have preferred her long, inspired the poem "Against the Light". By Peter got Soderling a description of their spiritual leader, Marcus, who for many years came to stand Soderling bee in his media work. The nearest circle of friends know well, that Marcus once to have held a prominent ecclesiastical position in our country, something which is not contradicted by the worthy sermons on various subjects, which usually started Soderling seances.

 During the first few years as a medium, he retained his position as clerk, but then he began long lecture tours across the country. He evangelized for spiritualism, which he called "Ghost Religion". While Denmark and Norway extended his travels; especially Denmark, he was cordially received by the sense kinsmen, who fought for a much safer position than in Sweden.

 It was something of a poet, who after the custom of wanted to live bohemia carefree existence, over Soderling, at this time, and perhaps even later. He worried little for the morrow; it always works in one way or another. But the wife Elna, with its before-mentioned practical orientation, which is understood to eke out the small income through room rentals, etc., he would surely have had even greater financial difficulties. Yes, no income to speak of, it was not through mediumship; where even he contributed to was very reluctant to receive personal compensation for their media services. At séances asked to present an offering bowl at the door, and at the conclusion of the meeting asked those present to donate some money for the rent.

Shortly before the First World War, the family moved to the apartment on Lundagatan, which since then became a beloved gathering place for those who have part in the innumerable seances, which where held. Soderling became increasingly appreciated for her performance in the movement. And during this period are born his book "The dead are living." After the war Soderling spent a year in Germany, where he studied art, alongside his media work, he dedicated himself in the coming years both to painting, and physical therapy. In 1913, for he had been trained as a masseur at Ullman's institutions. In 1920 Spiritualist Society was formed in Stockholm (SS) The initiator was the wife Louise Breitholtz, b. Wachtmeister, and Soderling was one of the founder members.

 The Spiritualist Society's history, Carl Soderling name always shine with a warm and heartfelt glory. During many long years he which felled a dedicated work as a medium, lecturer and secretary. Many members of his dear S, S. will certainly to the end of his footsteps - and Lange in grateful memory preserve many never-to-be-forgotten evening with Carl Soderling. His séance evenings were long awaited gatherings, yes, religious services, nothing less. His spiritual leader Marcus was always the one who started and finished each seance. He is a big, warm and humble Christian personalities. And except Marcus has many, known and unknown, men and women after "Death" been able to speak to us earth walkers through the willing tool of the Lord, that this earth was called Carl Soderling.

 The newly formed National Association of Spiritualism, which later formed the Stockholm spiritualist association, counted even Soderling as medium and helpers. He belonged to the original board and participated with lectures and sessions. Along with spiritualism as he always devoted a religious interest, he could remember about church work in the town church. Through the spiritualism interested cleric, he was taken into parish work, and for a number of years, he received special dispensation by the Bishop Sheele that during the summer months preaching in a Gotland parish. He further held occasional sermons at Soderby sanatorium and an evensong in Ostermalm Church. Many prominent clerics he counted as his friends, and sometimes church brothers in Högalid he was very active. Often, he said his opinion bluntly, impulsive as he was, and accused her friends "to sit there and do nothing" when so many tasks awaited them. Carl Soderling was a very religious spiritualist - reflecting himself in his books!

 That in two generations serve as a medium is a rare luxury. The gratitude that flowed towards him after each seance was certainly reward enough for his efforts, but there were also moments when he known that he was not able to do more on the medial course. Several times he wanted to quit. He wondered if he made the right. It was a force exertion of great stature over many years, leading meetings and act as a medium. During the summer months, he sought also relaxation and rest and devoted himself at times other interests, but the mission he had undertaken upon entry of this incarnation, were not neglected. He became the faithful for life. A medium highly inflated sensitivity means that they become more than usually susceptible to sensory expression. In his enthusiasm and impulsiveness it happened also at some point that he performed acts that he later regretted. "but afterwards he saw his wife kneeling deep in prayer in order to get to the bottom" and after a while, he was happy and contented again. He was not only religious public but also in the home. He understood the value of prayer. The figure of Christ appeared to him as the ideal figure of man. Man's goal should be to reach so far as to become like him. Within each of us there is something of Christ. For the Bible, he had a deep respect, but always held that it had a literal and a spiritual meaning. Not everyone understood the spiritual, which is only revealed to those who put themselves available to its message.

Karnske he had in the last months of his illness his greatest religious experience - which will not be mentioned, but this much is certain that at the end understood the value of the life he led. He experienced the consequences of the deeds of various kinds, which he performed in earth life, and he was prepared to enter into the next life. "After 75 years of date approached, it became clear to his closest friends, it was uncertain whether he would survive it. For a good friend, he also said a few days before that, he knew that he would celebrate it on the other side. And as was the case.
 
Saturday, April 10, 1948 ended a rich and blessed life, a work that will bear fruit in the coming times. Carl Soderling memory will always live among Scandinavian spiritualists, as surely as he lives in the world, from which he was privileged to convey so many instructive and edifying message, which had become so great benefit to his fellow wanderers on the earth plane. Soderblom has once said that saints are those people who in their life proclaim and prove that God lives.
During the long period of nearly fifty years of Carl Soderling served as Medium, his quest and victorious faith through his life preaching and proving, that God lives.
 
From his book "The Dead Live" issued by Excelsior's publishers which this summary information is taken - one can read his portrayal of Christianity in spiritualism - which is a very interesting interpretation, which I heartily recommend!
