The Saturday night audience was a full house of Halloween weekend and Day of the Dead revelers. At the closing seance, bold audience volunteers Mike, Mel and Tara personed the Ouija board. The planchette was shooting all over the place but sadly all we got was strings of consonants over and over which made for a frustrating experience. It did say when I asked what it thought of the show, CLAP. Also it confirmed that it was not alone and that there were 7 of them in the room with us at that moment. If you’ve been following the previous seance posts you know there are at least 12 spirits (or subconscious ideomotor impulses, depending on your beliefs) in the building whom I have affectionately dubbed the Synagogue Saints. It’s not unusual for all 12 of them not to make a showing at once.
(Personally I was thrilled not to hear from little V, because if she had made a showing it would mean our haunting Buddhist exorcism in the previous show had been a failure. I urge you to read/watch that now, and then to read what happened in the Earth-shattering final session on 11/3/13.)
While the Ouija session continued I fired up the P-SB7 spirit box as usual, and here are the highlights. The raw footage is 7.5 minutes. I have cut it down here to the most clearly spoken minute of highlights. Each has been slowed down and had the volume amplified while maintaining the original pitch, for better ease of listening. Transcript with my comments follows below the video:
Please go. [I know, why don’t I listen to them? Because not all 12 of them agree as you’ll see. This isn’t the first time some have expressed hostility while others simultaneously say hello and ask me to stay. Besides, the run is almost over and then I’ll indeed be gone from their afterlives. I do not consider them to be evil, just sometimes hostile. Even here they’re being polite and saying please.]
Second thought (s). [Not sure to whom they’re speaking. Referring to themselves having second thoughts about telling me to go, or are they commenting on one of the seance participants who is having second thoughts. Is that why the Ouija session wasn’t as stellar as it sometimes can be?]
We’re human … Want you to go … Listen to us. [Got it. I think they’re telling the audience and me that they’re not performing seals, nor or they evil spirits. They’re people and they don’t feel like talking to us right now.]
Hello. [But then like I said, here’s another voice contradicting them and seemingly wanting to chat.]
Alcohol. [Alcohol, indeed. It’s mentioned numerous times throughout the show and the word is even on one of the projected slides. I also just moments before this had made and served a strong martini to lucky audience member Leslie.]
C’est bon! [“It’s good!” apparently in reference to the martini. Not the first time they’ve spoken French to us as well as Italian. This particular phrase is of course common in English so it doesn’t necessarily mean there’s a Frenchman among the Synagogue Saints.]
You found me … Look more at me … On the board. [We were trying, dude. Nothing but apparent gibberish coming through on the Ouija board. Sorry.]
Push, Michael … Thank you, Mikey. [As stated above, one of the audience volunteers at the Ouija board was Mike. This spirit seems to be addressing him directly.]
ME: Can you say goodbye?
No. Thank you, spirits. See you at the final show tomorrow.
