Our Halloween Ghost Hunt is held in Stowmarket, Suffolk, which is only about 13 miles away from my home in Sproughton near Ipswich. This is just one of the many events that I have held at this venue. The 18th century Malt House is steeped in history, full of character and makes a perfect venue.

I've always loved Halloween and the Halloween Ghost Hunt has always been my favourite as I love the fancy dress and the whole place is always heaving with excited people, the atmosphere is electric.

As we draw the ghost hunt to an end the Séance is about to begin, but not everyone at the ghost hunt will get a place in the séance and that's okay because not everyone wants one, it's only for the brave!

We say goodbye to our ghost hunters who, (still revelling with excitement) are not easy to usher out of the door. They may not have the stomach for the séance but they are still curious and would like to see what's going to take place, but we don't have spectators. It's important during a séance that everyone remains calm and in control, (which is the reason we limit the places) any sudden outbursts could potentially be harmful to the medium.

We have a few ghost hunters who linger behind and are very inventive when it comes to finding ways to avoid leaving the building. We relish their enthusiasm and excitement, but we really need to get on with the séance. We don't want to 'throw them out' but it's clear that they really don't want to leave. After a game of 'cat and mouse' we eventually get them out of the door, (without offending them) which is quite a feat in itself! We quickly lock the doors behind them. At last the séance can begin...

The previously heaving building is now virtually silent with the 30 remaining people sitting on their chairs, (in a circle) all staring at me with anticipation. The space that we are all sitting in is really eerie! Kelly, (the manager of this old eerie venue and my 'right hand woman') asks if I'm ready to begin, so I take my place at the head of the circle. I had come to really trust Kelly, which is a good thing as once the séance begins my fate is in her hands! She has to be my eyes and ears.

I should explain that there are various forms of mediumship, (also referred to as clairvoyance) and I'm not going to tell you about them all here today. When most people think of mediumship they think of a medium getting a message from a loved one in the spirit world, (the communicator) and passing on that message to, (the sitter) their loved one here on earth. This form of mediumship is known as 'Mental Mediumship' and is what I do day to day, when giving my customers a reading.

Another type of mediumship is what we call 'Overshadowing' and / or 'Trance Mediumship.' Trance mediumship is much stronger and deeper than overshadowing, therefore, one could say, trance mediumship can begin with the medium being overshadowed by spirit. This means that the spirit energy has come closer to the medium and there is less of the consciousness of the medium and more of the spirit. There's sharing of mental and physical energies and consciousness between the medium and the spirit communicator. If you think of your mind and body as a house, with mental mediumship you're receiving visitors whilst you're home and you are communicating with your guests. With trance mediumship you're lending your home to your guests whilst you're away on vacation.

Furthermore, during trance mediumship, because the medium is 'away on vacation', (so to speak) the spirit communicator is speaking directly through the consciousness of the medium - rather than the medium receiving the information and then relating what has been given to another person/s. Therefore, during trance mediumship, one usually notices that the medium's voice and manner of speech is different.

That said; I expect you are beginning to get the picture and I expect you understand why I need a 'right hand woman', whom I can trust. I am a mental medium and hadn't set out to be overshadowed by spirit or to practice trance mediumship. It had occurred spontaneously twice before, many years previous, but once we started doing the séances I went spontaneously into trance every time.

Sitting in my seat as head of the circle I close my eyes and everyone else follows suit, except for Kelly as she keeps her eyes firmly fixed on me! It only feels like a few minutes later when I open my eyes and I have mascara, (mixed with tears) running down my face and I feel so dirty. Kelly and the others in the circle, fill me in on the blanks.

During the séance Kelly instructs the group to open their eyes and look at me. Already aware of the changes in my voice as I speak, they open their eyes to take a look at me and I look different in some way that they cannot quite explain. I cry profoundly and say, "My face, look at my face, I've been in a fire, I'm badly burned and my face is scarred all down one side", as the tears roll down my cheeks, "Release me, release me" the spirit says. Kelly asks the spirit, (who communicates through me) whether she'd been burned in the fire on her premises during 1995. The spirit replies, "No, it was just down there, in the malt mill". Kelly asks the spirit a few questions and the spirit energy answers through me.

As Kelly is filling me in on what happened during the séance, with the help of the others in the circle, I become aware of the spirit being. This time I have an awareness of her because she isn't overshadowing me, but is just showing herself to me. She shows me the scars on her face and as she waves her hand across her face, (like a wand) they disappear. She's fine, but she needs to leave this world and make her way home to the spirit world. She's been feeling trapped here and now she wants to leave. Once again we all close our eyes and I suggest to the spirit that she can see a beautiful white light in the distance. The white light is coming closer and she needs to step into the light, to go in the direction that it's coming from, as it's lighting her way back home. She turns and smiles, walks into the light and disappears. The energy within the group is transformed and feels much lighter!

In my opinion the spirit wasn't unsettled because she was in a fire and scarred in life, but because she wasn't sure which direction to take but she knew that she had to leave this world and make her way home to the next. When she was speaking through me and bringing forth the tears and showing her scars, she was just telling us her story and showing us what happened to her by taking me through her experience. When she left in the light she looked content and happy to leave and there was no visible scarring, that I could see, on her face at that time.

At time of writing I asked Kelly to recap on the information she'd gathered from the spirit that evening and this is as much as she can remember:

* Female spirit energy.

* Scars down one side of her face.

* Fire during the early 1900's.

* Fire was in the Malt Mill, further down from the venue that we were in.

* She had been working in the Malt Mill.

* Something fell onto the woman and she was trapped.

* She passed away in the fire.

* She feels trapped on earth and wants to leave.

Shortly after the séance Kelly did some research online. She found information on a fire in the area, during the 1900's, in which a woman was killed. This seemed to fit with the information that this spirit energy had given. At time of writing Kelly looked for the article again, but this time without success.
