The Psychic Telephone System

The medium should ever strive to guard against this harmful mental

state, and should open himself completely to the spirit influence,

casting aside all fear and doubt, and placing all responsibility upon

the controlling spirit or band of helpers. The medium should remember

that he is merely the "medium" or psychic telephone system, and is not

an active party to the process of spirit communication. He should,

therefore, never either unduly strive to please, nor be fearful or

distrustful concerning the validity of the manifestation being made

through him. Let the spirits attend to their end of the line, and the

sitters to the other end--the medium is on neither end of the line, but

is the line itself.
