The Matter Of Time Conditions

The time at which the seances are held is not in itself important, but

it will be found best to fix such time at such an hour that will be most

convenient for the sitters, and at which their minds will not be

distracted by thoughts that they should return home, or should be

attending to certain household or business duties, etc. The seances

should be held not oftener than, say, twice a week, or at the most three

week. Each seance should be continued for about an hour or a

little over--certainly not over two hours at a time. The sitters should

be punctual in attendance, so that no time may be lost or wasted. The

idea should be that the spirit friends are awaiting your coming to

fulfill your engagement with them, and one should be as careful to keep

such an engagement as he would were the engagement with his most valued

friend or esteemed acquaintance. Regularity in attendance is also

important, as it is important that so far as possible the same general

conditions be maintained at each and every seance. The seance should be

started at the same hour on each occasion, at least so far as is

possible, so as to preserve the same time rhythm.
