The Role Of The Spirits

We have spoken of the part of the work which it is necessary for the

sitters to perform in order to And now we shall have something to say

concerning the part to be played properly by the spirits wishing to

communicate. It must not be supposed for a moment that every spirit is

possessed of the necessary knowledge enabling it to communicate easily

through a medium, or even to develop the medium so that he may become an

efficient channel of communication. Spirits are frequently found to be

sadly deficient in such knowledge and experience, and the development of

the medium as well as the production of satisfactory phenomena, suffer

from this lack. The spirits who seek to use a medium may or may not be

fitted for such task. Many spirits are utterly unable to properly

develop a medium; some fail by reason of their lack of knowledge, and

others fail because of their lack of special aptitude for the task.
