He is a developing medium.

It's all very well putting pictures of Leslie Flint on his website but he has no experience of sitting with him or in fact any others he mentions.

Scott is a very close friend of David Thompson and one of his greates supporters. I have run into comments by him a few times but nothing that would make me reccomend him to anyone just as DT will never get a reference from me. I trust you have read the thread upon questions to DT which is in this forum area on Physical Mediums.

Unlike other forums we are not concerned to challenge what goes on in the dark at seances. Personally I already suspec ther are very few of the current "physical mediums" who have not black balled my attendance at seances but then I am only willing to go into one's I would trust and preferably in light however dim whatever colour.

HELLO ALL ,
SORRY ABOUT THE SPELLING .
THANK YOU FOR THE KIND INTEREST IN MY MEDIUMSHIP AND TO ANOTHER DEVELOPING PHYISCAL MEDIUM .
I READ

It's all very well putting pictures of Leslie Flint on his website but he has no experience of sitting with him or in fact any others he mentions.


zerdini

PEOPLE WHO KNOW ME AND KNOW MY BACK GROUND I SAT IN WELL OVER 300 + PHYISCAL MEDIUMSHIP BE IT IN THE HOME CIRCLE OR PUBLIC SEANCE OF 3 FULL FORM PHYISCAL MEDIUMS AND WELL AS A DIRC VOICE MEDIUM ( WHO HAS SADLY PASSED TO THE OTHER WORLD ) DUE MY TIME LES FLINT CAME TO ME IN THESE SEANCE AND WOULD TALK TO AND GIVE ME ADVICE ON THE UNFOLDMENT OF THE AREA PHYISCAL MEDIUMSHIP . MY CIRCLE LEADER (JOHN ASTIN) WHO HAS SADLY PASSED TO THE OTHER WORLD IN JULY OF THIS YEAR WAS MY ROCK WAS AND STILL IS LIKE MY GRANDAD WAS A PERSONAL FRIEND OF MR FLINT AND SAT WITH DIFFERENT DEM MEDIUMSHIP FOR OVER 40 YEARS . AND PLAY AND OVER SAW MY UNFOLDMENT OF THE AREA OF MY MEDIUMSHIP . WHICH IM PLEASE TO REPORT IN SHOWING STRONG RESULTS WERE I HAVE JUST BE GIVING A CHANCE TO SIT FOR UN-NAME TUTORS AT THE STANSTED HALL AND THEN HAVE NOW PUT MY AS A GUEST TUTOR FOR WEEKS BASE ON ALTED STATE LEADING THE AREA OF PHYISCAL MEDIUMSHIP . I HAVE COUNTLESS REOPORT OF MY PUBLIC SEANCE WHERE RED LIGHT HAS BEEN USED AND ECTOPLASM HAS BEEN CLEARLEY SEEN MOVING FOR MY MOUNTH TO THE FLOOR AND LOOKING WHAT CAN BE ONLY DISCRIBE AS PULSING GROWN TO AROUND 100 CM . ALSO A REPORT FROM SCOTLAND FOR A PUBLIC SEANCE WHERE IN FRONT OF 45 PEOPLE INCLUDING A PEOPLE WHICH SCINTIFIC BACKGROND WAS ABLE TO WITNESS ECTOPLASM IN LOW WHITE LIGHT ECTPLASM MOVING AWAY FROM ME , IN SPAIN A VERY CLOSE AND PERSONAL FRIEND OF MR FLINT WAS ABLE TO SEE ECTOPLASM IN RED LIGHT THEN WAS INSTRUCKED BY THE OTHER WORLD TO OPEN THE SEANCE ROOM DOOR TO LET DAY LIGHT INTO THE ROOM AGAIN THE ECTOPLASM WAS CLEAR TO SEE BY ALL ( BUT I MUST SAY AFTER THAT SEANCE I FELT VERY UNWELL ) .
I HAVE BEEN VERY LUCKY IN MY LIFE FROM THE AGE OF 16 TO SIT WITH GREAT PHYISCAL MEDIUMS AND SEE WHERE WORK IN DARKNESS AS WELL AS RED LIGHT .
PLEASE PLEASE THIS IS NOT MENT TO BE AN EGO TRIP . BUT DUE TO THE QUESTION ABOUT WHO I AM AND ABOUT THE MEDIUMSHIP WHICH IS UNFOLDING . I HAD TO PUT A REPLY ON THIS .
YES I DO UNDERSTAND WHERE ARE MANY WHO WISH TO PUT THE OUTSTANDING MEDIUMS OF THE PASS ON THERE WEB SITE . BUT FOR ME AS I HAD MR FLINT TALK TO ME OVER A NUMBER OF TIME (18 + ) AND WE MUST ALSO REMEMBER HE WORK . IT WAS FITTING TO PUT ON MY SITE .
I HAD ONLY GIVEN UP A VERY VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF MY BACK GROUND TO SAY he has no experience of sitting HURTFUL BUT I DO UNDERSTAND . WITH MY SEANCES I AM SEACH BEFORE SEANCE , ALSO THE ROOM AND THE REST OF THE SITTER , IM TIED WITH VERY THIK CABLE TIES ARMS AND LEGS AND THE 2 PEOPLE WHO SIT IVE SIDE OF CABNET PLACE BOTH HANDS ON THE PERSON NEXT TO THEM THROUGH OUT THE WHOLE SEANCE , THE SEANCE YES DOSE START IN THE DARK BUT AS THE SEANCE UNFOLDS THEN RED LIGHT IS PLACED ON FOR ALL TO SEE . AGAIN I HOPE THIS DOSE NOT COME ACROSS AS A EGO , BUT I NEED TO PUT THIS ON HEAR DUE TO THE TOPIC .
AGAIN THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO HAS SHARED THERE VIEWS AND INTEREST ON MY MEDIUMSHIP BUT ALSO THE SUBJECT OF PHYISCAL MEDIUMSHIP I BELIEVE THE OLD WAYS ARE THE BEST AND WE MUST FIGHT TO RUB OUT THE ROT THAT PHYISCAL MEDIUMSHIP HAS GOT OVER THE PASSED FEW YEARS .
WITH THE GREATEST OF REPECT

Hi Scott

Thanks for replying in person.

Although you claim to have sat with three full form physical mediums this is not true. In fact it just reveals your lack of understanding of what full form materialisation mediumship really is.

I am one of the few people still alive who have witnessed full form materialisation mediumship so I speak from personal experience.

I don't doubt you have produced ectoplasm but so have many others. I have seen your website and the claims you make.

You claim to have spoken to Leslie Flint in seances but the point I was making was that you never sat in a Leslie Flint seance when he was on earth whereas I sat with him on a regular basis for over ten years and have the tape recordings to prove it.

As for my old friend John Austin - I knew him long before he became the leader of Colin Fry's circle and long before you knew him.

Physical phenomena and the production of ectoplasm are all very well, and have their place in physical mediumship, but evidence of survival to help bereaved people is more important.

I wish you well if you are endeavouring to produce the latter.

Kind regards

Zerdini

Hi Scott

Yes I did sit with Alec Harris, one of the greatest materialisation mediums of our time.

Who are the materialisation mediums you claim to have sat with?

When I refer to full form materialisations I mean walking, talking solid spirit beings seen by all in the seance room in good light not a face shown on a luminous plaque.

Knowing people who sat with Leslie Flint is not the same as having the experience yourself.

I, too, have heard from Leslie many times since his passing and I can vouch that it was his voice and personality exactly as I remember him.

I found your remarks about not attending his funeral in bad taste as I was attending a funeral of a close relative at the other end of the country who actually passed over the same day as John.

When I sat in John's circle at the invitation of the guides, when Colin was developing his mediumship, you were never mentioned as you were not yet on the scene, so to speak.

I was aware of the help you gave John towards the end of his life and I commend you for that.

I would suggest that you think very carefully before you rush into print as you do not have all the facts to hand.

Kind regards

Z

Hi Scott
I dont knowe if you now that wrighting in bigg letters meens shouting?

there is no need to shoute it is koncearnd from dedicated people to Physical mediumship.
Im persenly are werry concernd that Physical mediumship are not going to bee cirkus!!!

To prodjuce ectoplassma dosent - say there are inteligens whit it - it kan just be youre one spirit.

No need to bee roude to elders that have more experiens!

I have heard you are a nice gay and dont spoil that.

Physical mediumship has to take time - otherwise it can go in to froude - as we hear in sweden resently have experiens.

and as i understand is some funny raise betwen physical mediums - ho can bee best!?? that is not what physical mediumship is aboute.
Offcource i am conserned aboute you - it is the repjutaition for Physical mediumship that can bee dammege if to many not finnisht developt mediums runn oute there!

Dit mr John Astin Alow you to goo Pubblic? and did the spirit wourl alow it ?

and what whil you prowe whit the develop state that you are showing up? what is the mening and why?

I know Scott have chatted with him on a number of occasions, I read your comments and to be quite honest I find them quite descpicable to say the least, you wrote ''I have heard you are a nice gay and dont spoil that.'' What has gay got to do with any of that, and as to the fact that because Scott is writing in captial letters means he's shouting! I have spoken with Scott on many occasions and he has used captial letters in his response, never once did I think he was shouting. I think it is very wrong of you to make that judgement, seeing you don't know him.

Scott is a wonderfully warm guy who is obviously demonstrating the early stages of the most wonderful gift of mediumship, Physical phenomena, I always find it quite hurtful when I see people knocking others spiritual gifts, I don't think it very fair to judge Scott when you haven't witnessed his mediumship. Instead of knocking people, and viewing people in a negative light - you should perhaps celebrate the Spirit, as we are all Spirit now! is never nice to put down Spirit!

Rpbert,

Jane is from Sweden and English is not her first language.

"''I have heard you are a nice gay and dont spoil that.'' Jane obviously meant a nice 'guy' not 'gay'. That is the problem when you don't know the people involved.

I've known Jane a long time and she wouldn't deliberately try to cause offence with personal remarks like that.

I am not Scott's defender, just giving my view. Scott is a great guy and I will continue to support anyone who is developing physical mediumship. Anyone who demonstrates the beauty of the Spirit world through mediumship is wonderful! I am not here for conflict, I find conflict very uncomfortable. My apologies to Jane if I misunderstood her, I am only new here, so you will have to forgive me.

Best wishes and may you grow always.
Lots of light,
Robert
