The Home Circle

Mediums are born or made. That is to say, many persons are born with the

gift of mediumship, while others, lacking this natural power, are able

to develop the power by practice and gradual unfoldment. Some of the

world's best mediums have been developed, while others in the same class

have been born with the gift. At the same time, it must be remembered

that there is a wide range of power existing between different

vidual mediums of both of these classes. In the opinion of the

present writer, perhaps the very best way of developing mediumistic

powers is that of actually participating in "circle work." The wonderful

results of earlier spiritualism in America and in Europe were

undoubtedly due to the casual and general practice of holding "home

circles." These home circles were the nursery of some of the world's

greatest mediums. Here the born medium was made aware of his or her

natural powers; and, likewise, here others were enabled to gradually

unfold and develop their latent mediumistic power.
