Table Tippings

Sometimes, however, in place of the raps being manifested by the spirit

forces, there will instead be manifested that peculiar tipping of the

table which was the distinguishing characteristic of early

spiritualistic phenomena in the western countries. In this case the

tipping of the table will proceed just as in the case of the raps, so

far as the transmission of messages is concerned. That is to say, the

table will tilt three times, one time, etc., in accordance with the

code, just as in the case of communication by means of the raps. In

addition to this, however, the table may begin to manifest strange

motions; it may begin to raise itself, jump around, spin around on one

leg, slide across the rooms, etc. In such cases the hands of the sitters

should be kept on the table, or if they slip off they should be at once

replaced thereupon. Sometimes heavy tables will manifest more activity

than the lighter ones.
