From its inception, in 1883,
trance mediumship has played a very significant role in the general mission
and ministry of the First Spiritual Temple. To bear witness to genuine
trance communication, where a Spirit teacher comes forward to inspire and
instruct, is, truly, a remarkable experience.
Today, genuine trance mediumship
is rather rare. Its development comes only to those who have, within their
mental and physical organisms, a certain type of vital, magnetic energy.
This energy is used by Spirit, in order to induce varying degrees of
control over the medium. In this state of control, the Spirit communicator
is able to impact directly the body and the consciousness of the medium and
speak in a more direct fashion.

therapists, psychologists, and parapsychologists in order to determine the
degree and validity of his mediumship. All have come to the same
conclusion: Some personality, other than that of Rev. Stephen, speaks
through him, when he invites the condition of trance to overshadow his
At this point in time, two
primary Spirit teachers speak through Rev. Stephen's mediumship: Syrsha, an
ancient Egyptian; and John, a guide devoted to the Healing Ministry. Both
work with the medium in a most delightful and harmonious manner. Anyone who
knows Rev. Stephen and has heard Syrsha and John speak know that each of
these three individuals has his own flair of dialogue and his own
perspectives on life and the journey of the Spirit.

Temple, as they have been given through Rev. Stephen's mediumship.
