 Ena Twigg Medium

Born in Kent, England, she was a member of a psychic family in which the parents and other children had sensitive ability. She played with Spirit children at the age of seven and at 14 predicted the death of her father. Her psychic gifts disturbed her marriage to Harry Twigg.

Scientific cynics around the world were stunned when news of a strange Spirit-contact hit the media - the British Medium Ena Twigg had communicated with a missing American bishop, James D. Pike, who was lost somewhere in the Palestinian desert.

On September 4, 1969, while Ena Twigg, her husband, Harry, and canon John Pearce-Higgins sat in the living-room of her home, suddenly a discarnate voice commanded her to switch on the tape recorder. The Spirit voice belonged to the missing Bishop Pike, who - unknown to anyone on Earth - had then been 'dead' for twenty-four hours.

The full transcript of his evidence of survival is presented in Ena's autobiography, Ena Twigg: Medium, along with many other psychic and mediumistic experiences she had while joining two worlds together as one.

Ena was born just before the First World War; and in childhood she had numerous confrontations with what she called the 'Misty People' who were, in fact, Spirit visitors that were visible only to her.

The misty people were her playmates and advisers, and they eventually became her lifelong friends. Her faithful Spirit friends also rescued her from a close brush with death...

In her seances, Ena gave survival evidence to many famous clients, including kings, queens, princes, shahs, premiers, senators, and lords and ladies, too.

Her visions and voices - which she heard over her left shoulder - also made some notable predictions. They predicted the death of her father, and her husband's safe return from combat from World War II - and both these predictions were fulfilled.

Some respected members of the clergy and the professions documented her Spirit messages; and in her life story Ena provides much evidence of an afterlife and of reincarnation.

Ena Twigg was the first Spiritualist minister ever to be featured on a regular religious program on BBC television in the early 1960s, and was the only woman ever permitted to speak at Southwark Cathedral.

She was well known in England and also made her mark in the USA; and she also worked on the lecture platforms of France, Norway, Finland, and of other European countries.

Critics of Mediums often claim that the clergy are firmly set against the practice of mediumship - but this is not the case in many instances. The foreword to Ena's autobiography is written by The Right Reverend Mervyn Stockwood, Lord Bishop of Southwark Cathedral, and in it he makes some noteworthy recommendations: 'If we were to take psychic studies seriously, we would learn to appreciate that our experience in this world is not the consummation; instead we live now sub specie aeternitatis. There are other worlds and dimensions, and this should be taught in our schools as part of our general education.'

When Ruth Hagy Brod, the co-writer of Ena's book, did research on the Medium's work she discovered some interesting examples of her survival evidence:

Mrs Twigg told a woman sitter that she would hear from a branch of her family now in Greece. The sitter, who lived in Camberley, England, insisted that there was definitely no branch of her family missing in Greece or anywhere else. This Spirit-supplied information chalked up as a miss. But the woman later telephoned Ena Twigg to tell her that the unknown Greek branch of the family had indeed turned up, and that these relatives were now visiting her.

A Mrs Serafina Clarke consulted Ena Twigg, who then contacted this sitter's grandmother, who said to her granddaughter, 'Tell your mother she didn't fool me one bit. There is nothing wrong with the tombstone, but I'm not there - nobody is.'

Mrs Clarke confronted her mother about her 'dead' grandmother's statements and this is what she reported: 'Granny was right. She was not in the grave under the tombstone marked with her name and date of birth and death. Granny had died in the war and Mother had had her cremated. When the war was over, Mother's brother (who had been living in Africa) decided to come home for a visit and he wanted to see 'Mama's grave'. Well, my mother was in a panic because she had never told him that his mother had been cremated, so she rushed down to the village, got a stonecutter, and added her mother's name and all the rest to the tombstone. It was really very funny that we found out about this through Mrs Twigg. I had never known a thing about it before.'

Antoine's Oil Painting

Mrs Dorothy Jenkins of Clarendon Drive, Putney, South London purchased an oil painting in a Fuiham junk shop to which she had been attracted. It was a picture of a young woman in a red velvet gown, and it was about four feet square and showed some signs of scorching. The painting was signed 'Antoine'.

The picture brought with it a great many problems although Mrs Jenkins had been advised not to get rid of it as that might increase the intensity of the unpleasantness towards her. Both Mrs Jenkins and her son, in turn, suffered nervous breakdowns in the period following the purchase of the picture, which hung in both of their bedrooms at different times. Investigator Philip Paul arranged for a 'Medium, Ena Twigg, to assist in the investigation. He did not give her full information about the matter being investigated but merely asked if she would 'psychometrise' objects somewhere in London; she accepted. (Psychometry is the method used by some Mediums to gain impressions of people and events by touching objects they have owned.) At the time of the investigation Mrs Jenkins had her friend, Mrs Violet Smith, with her and Paul arrived with Ena Twigg, Leslie Howard, the assistant editor of Psychic News and Ena’s husband, three newspaper reporters and a photographer, all of whom had expressed interest in the case.

Attempting to double-bluff the Medium, Paul led her straight to the picture on the grounds that she would probably expect to be taken to a 'neutral' object first. Apparently Ena Twigg felt immediate horror and distress. She spoke almost incoherently of various feelings and events including hearing music, seeing blood and what seemed to be descriptions of confinements; use of truth drugs, preventing shaving and discussing what may have been electric shock therapy.

Many of these comments related to the difficulties being experienced by Mrs Jenkins' son who was not present that evening. Indeed of several other objects psychometrised by Ena Twigg only a photograph of Mrs Jenkins' son produced anything by way of results. During the test the paintings had been arranged in the room in a particular order and before Ena Twigg, now without her blindfold, was brought back into the room after the test had ended the paintings were put back in their proper places. On entering the room Ena Twigg claims to have seen a bright flash of light moving from one point to another.

The point at which it started was the painting by Antoine and the place where the light apparently went to was the spot where it had been during the experiment. Philip Paul does not recall any derogatory comments on the part of the reporters but in Ena Twigg's biography, Ena Twigg, Medium, she wrote, 'The reporters were not at all impressed with the accuracy of my performance . . . For the most part they believed and said that 'somebody must have tipped her off in advance'. With some people it wouldn't matter if you brought the sun, moon and stars down and put them in their proper rotation. They would still he doubters.'

Ena Twigg (1914-1984) was a British psychic medium.

Born in Kent, England on January 6, 1914 Twigg claimed psychic ability from an early age. She married Harry Twigg a soldier in the Royal Navy. Twigg became a minister of a Spiritualist Church [1] and was the first Spiritualist Medium to be interviewed on British television.

The most-publicized incident involving Twigg was her claim that she had communicated with the spirit of James Pike, Jr. a man who had committed suicide in 1966. Twigg gave Bishop Pike information to him about himself and his son James. [2]

Although Twigg denied formerly knowing anything about Pike and his son, the magician and skeptic investigator John Booth suspected that Twigg had already known information about the Pike family before the seances. Twigg had belonged to the same denomination of Bishop Pike, he had preached at a cathedral in Kent and Booth speculated that she had known information about him and his deceased son from newspapers.[3] Researcher Georgess McHargue also wrote that Twigg may have obtained information from newspapers.[4]

It is no Longer a Sin to Contact the Deceased Through a Medium

by Michael Roll

One of the most competent theologians of the Vatican, Father Gino Concetti, writing in the 'Osservatore Romano', the daily paper of the Holy See, says that,

'According to the modern catechism the Church has decided not to forbid anymore to dialogue with the deceased ... this is as a sequel of new discoveries within the domain of the paranormal.'

(December 1996)

This u-turn from the Vatican came as no surprise to those who have known for many years that the Roman Catholic Church has been carrying out scientific experiments with their own mediums. This scientific approach was predicted many years ago by the outstanding medium Ena Twigg. This coincided with her breakthrough in persuading the Lord Bishop of Southwark, the Rt. Rev. Mervyn Stockwood, to let her demonstrate her gift in Southwark Cathedral. At this time it did look as if the Anglo-Catholic Church was going to take the lead in getting the proof of survival after death through to everybody in the world. However, Ena Twigg's etheric contacts surprised people by making it very clear that the new Renaissance would start in the Roman Catholic Church!

With the benefit of hindsight this paradox does start to make sense, because the Vatican learnt the hard way what it is like to be on the losing side when it backed Hitler and the Nazis. This time they have decided to join the winning side. However, there are a few more u-turns the Vatican will have to make before the metamorphosis is complete. The Roman Catholic priests will be getting the same instructions as everybody else who has bothered to make contact with etheric people through Mediums. It does not matter whether the scientist--seeker after knowledge--is a Christian or an atheist, the message from the etheric wavelengths is always the same:

'You all survive death, there is no place here just reserved for Christians or anybody else. The only thing that counts is how you have behaved during your short stay on Earth.'

It is now obvious that we should have been following the great thinkers (philosophers) who taught love and unity, not hatred and divisiveness. Teachers of the calibre of Socrates, Jesus, Thomas Paine and Gandhi who were citizens of the world and whose mission was to do good in life. All survivalist philosophers teach:

'As you sow, so you will reap.' And:

'Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.'

This means the Vatican will have to start following the teachings of Jesus instead of a saviour-god called Christ who is going to forgive all our sins on Earth. Jesus was reported to have said to the person next to him on the cross,

'This day you will be with me in paradise,' not,

'You will have to rest in peace in the ground waiting for me to come back on Judgement Day.'

The Catholic (all-embracing) doctrines and dogmas, that everybody must adhere to, were formulated at the Council of Nicaea in the year 325 of the Christian era. For confirmation look up Nicene Creed in the dictionary. This must now be abandoned if progress is to be made. The former Bishop of Salisbury, Dr. John Baker, made this clear when he wrote to me saying,

'There is no hope for the Churches unless they try and get back to the teachings of Jesus.'

It came as a shock to many scientists when the Editor of the Psychic News in the 1980s reported that the Secretary of the Society for Psychical Research did not know of any members who were actually carrying out experiments with Mediums! This situation has not changed. The psychologists, Dr Richard Wiseman and Dr Susan Blackmore, who are adamant that death is the end of everything, were awarded £150,000 and £60,000 respectively by the Perrott-Warrick Scholarship at Trinity College, Cambridge in order to research so-called paranormal phenomena. These 'experts' and members of the SPR, who are continually popping up on our television screens, do not even recognise that mediumship exists.

The next time the Perrott-Warrick Scholarship finds itself in funds, maybe it will consider giving the next grant to scientists who are carrying out experiments with Mediums. This will balance the money that was wasted on Wiseman and Blackmore. It also puts the Vatican in line for consideration. In other words it should consider giving the next grant to scientists to carry out experiments with the Vatican and see if their religion stands up to scrutiny.
