When Jesus came……
During my years with medium David LeBaron at his little Spiritualist church in Seattle, nothing was more stunning in seance than the materialization of Jesus. David LeBaron was a great physical medium. That means that spirits could manifest physically through him. Sometime they only partially manifested as a gaseous form, but other times they manifested as solid as you or me, and in that form I have walked arm and arm with them in a partially lit seance room. One year I was going through a painful lesson. David knew I had to go through it but he loved me and wanted to ease my pain if he could. He underwent two weeks of meditation in order to manifest a High Master named Adriotis of Atlantea. One Sunday afternoon in seance, David’s Spirit guide named Hilda, called me to come up to the cabinet where David sat in trance. She said that this High Master was coming through for me. He materialized as solid as a brick, wearing robes made of light. Lights flashed all over him as we walked around the room arm in arm. He gave me assurance that I would get through this painful ordeal and that there was a divine plan for me which I would still fulfill. Then his physical body became gaseous and disappeared through the ceiling.
As impressive as that was, something else happened that same year in Sunday afternoon seance that would top it. It was Easter. The week before, David had prepared us that Jesus might materialize to us in seance because he usually came every Easter. That was my first Easter with David and the church in 1994. We were not long into the seance before Hilda told us that “the Master” was coming. He materialized semi-solid in flowing white robes. I cannot over-emphasize the impact that this had on all of us. We were all brought up into a higher dimension that was so loving, we were possessed of love for one another and for the Master. He let us come to him and feel his robe. It was made of light but it still had texture. As we felt it, we could feel the pattern of it, where there were stitches. He spoke in ways that Spiritualists will understand. He said that he did not die for our sins. He said that He agreed to go to the cross to show us that death does not exist and that we are made of spirit to live forever. His presence inundated us with his Love. His voice was so loving, so calm, so assuring, we lost all sense of human lack or anxiety. Another reason I remember it so well was because, as he manifested and spoke to us, David was permitted to awaken from trance and join us as we talked to him. There we were, his sheep, having gentle conversations with him. And then he said that he would see us again and dematerialized. David went back to his cabinet and tried to go back into trance but could not. We all just sat there, immersed in Love, talking to one another. This experience showed to me the heights of Spiritualism and Spiritism. It showed that God and us are not separate. We are not in truth different from Him. We are cut from His cloth. We are emanations of God and we are here remembering who we are.
I was with David for three more Easters. Each time, Jesus came.
