A Poltergeist Christmas

In an atmosphere of jollity and good cheer at a family Christmas dinner, an unexpected event suddenly occurred that was to change people’s lives.

“Psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung was interested in the concept of poltergeists and the occult in general. Jung believed that a female cousin’s trance states were responsible for a dining table splitting in two and his later discovery of a broken bread knife.  Jung also believed that when a bookcase gave an explosive cracking sound during a meeting with Sigmund Freud in 1909, he correctly predicted there would be a second sound, speculating that such phenomena were caused by ‘exteriorization’ of his subconscious mind. Freud disagreed, and concluded there was some natural cause.”
— Based on material found in Colin Wilson’s Poltergeist: A Classic Study in Destructive Hauntings (2010) and Colin Wilson’s C.G.Jung: Lord of the Underworld (2019).
The story related below was published as a ‘Letter to the Editor’  in the Christmas edition of my local newspaper a few years ago. It was submitted under a pen name. Surprising events like these, involving apparitions and inexplicable phenomena that defy the laws of nature, are not uncommon in the annals of history. However, the reaction of most people to events like these is one of extreme scepticism, if not of outright hostility. “Things like this just don’t happen,” I’ve been told after relating this story to others. “I’m sorry, but you’re either seriously deluded or else you’re a liar!”
Let readers judge for themselves. Here is the letter:
A curious event occurred last Christmas in our family circle which I should like to share with your readers.
It began in fact two years ago, on Christmas Day, as we sat round the dinner table musing on past times and on the dear friends and relations who had made their final exits into the other world.
Outside, in the snow-blanketed village, we could hear the distant strains of carol singers singing my all-time favourite Christina Rossetti poem set to carol music by Gustave Holst, In the Bleak Midwinter.
As often happens on these occasions, the conversation had drifted into a sombre discussion of the life after death,  a topic most unsuitable for a jolly Christmas dinner. In an attempt to inject a note of gaiety into the proceedings, my father proposed a toast, and promised that when he died he would somehow get in touch with us.
There was a rock-crystal ashtray on my father’s knee in which a fat Cuban cigar, unlit, lay ready for lighting up later, after the trays of cranberry pies and mulled wine had been served and everyone was now disposed to the serious business of relaxing.
“You see this ashtray?” my father said, sipping his favourite Armenian brandy, a vintage Ararat matured in an oak cask.  “Well, when I die I’ll come back and smash it.  Just to prove I’ve finally given up smoking!”
We laughed, and the matter was soon forgotten as the plum pudding was carried in, all lit up in its dish of blazing brandy.
My father died within a month of making that last joke. Never again would he enjoy the traditional Christmas banquet (still popular in remote country houses) of roast goose served with sage and onion dressing, or a rib of beef with Yorkshire pudding, or hot mince pies served on a gleaming silver tray with cinnamon-scented wines.
It had been noted at the time of his passing that my father’s Swiss watch, an antique Audemars Piguet, had stopped at the moment of his death, as many old watches tend to do on the demise of their owners.
This watch had been placed on the mantelpiece inside the rock-crystal ashtray, and there it had lain as a memento for the past year, perpetually frozen at 12.44.
It was last Christmas, then, a full year after my father’s death, that we all got together again.
It was late evening and twelve of us were sitting round the fire roasting chestnuts and drinking sherry.
My mother rose to fetch the ashtray from the mantelpiece.  As she crossed the room there was a high-pitched vibration, like the sound of a tuning fork, and the rock-crystal ashtray suddenly cracked into two symmetrical halves with a loud PING.
Had matters stopped there, we should doubtless have found some plausible explanation for the splitting ashtray.  But what happened next was so bizarre that I doubt if any rational explanation can be found for it.
Rooted to the spot, my mother was staring fixedly—not at the ashtray but at the watch that lay cradled within the ashtray’s newly-formed fissure.
The second-hand of the watch jerked into spasmodic life and was racing round the watch-face.
My mother wordlessly held the watch out for us to see.  The revolution of the second hand was unmistakable. It was moving round, quite definitely, at several times its ordinary speed, as if being accelerated by some  hidden power source.
When the watch finally hiccupped to a halt at 12.50  (six minutes on the watch-face) we couldn’t help noting that in actual fact only a minute had elapsed.
During this minute out of time I personally neither saw nor sensed anything unusual, apart from the strange behaviour of the watch.
But my mother, my aunt Elinor, and a nine-year-old niece all claim to have seen my father.
Standing in front of the fire, his dark eyes agleam, he was smoking a long cigar from which golden-yellow streamers of smoke danced like ribbons of sunlight.
This experience has transformed our lives.
My mother looks like a young girl nowadays, quite radiant, as if she had tasted the honeydew of paradise.

  1. There is whats called ” catalyptic exteriorisation phenomena ”
    there are noises and movements outside of the medium, a loose vehicle of vitality
    or ethereic body helps to do this.
    Other types can be caused by spirits or lower realm elementals trapped by magicians,
    i mean real magicinas not quack childrens conjurors like Yuri Geller etc.
    Winston Churchills occult team were known as the Black team for a very good reason
    they used child sacrifice in ancient jewish rituals to attract lower realm entities which could be trapped and forced across the sea to harm folk in Germany and France in W W 2
    My old freind who was the greatest exorcist in the UK at the time, Dom Robert Petit pierre had to cleanse the Astor house after black magic ceremonies with Christine keeler etc and even the Russian Lubianka prison, and allegedly the Russian parliament building after Josef Stalins antics

  2. Lasha may I suggest the book ‘The Holographic Universe’ by Michael Talbot for a quite rational explanation of those events. They are quite common and happen to many people.

    It’s free online although I prefer the book version:




  3. After death, our spirit tarrys but only a short time before going out of this plane.
    Any other phenomia is demonic in nature, the demons mimic and can take on forms to decieve.
    Do not get involved with any of this or you open yourself to big trouble.
    Demons = Spirits of the Nephilim…
    “And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits (Angels) and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. [As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling.] And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them. From the days of the slaughter and destruction and death of the giants, from the souls of whose flesh the spirits, having gone forth, shall destroy without incurring judgement”.

  4. Merry Christmas to all Truthseeker visitors…from a pagan…
    “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”

    A good time to remember political prisoners and keep them in our thoughts…

  5. Death : What happens after life stops on earth ?
    Do we go to heaven or hell or does something else happen ?
    According to the scriptures and from Jesus’s mouth we go to sleep.
    We are no longer of this world nor do we have any knowledge of it. We are dead to the world and rest in peace waiting for The Day of the Lord when we will be awakened from sleep.
    Jesus was the first fruits to be raised from the dead.
    1 Corinthians 15:20
    But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.

    1 Corinthians 15:20
    But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

    1 Thessalonians 4:14
    For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

    Luke 8:52
    Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. “Stop wailing,” Jesus said. “She is not dead but asleep.”

    1 Thessalonians 4:15
    According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.

    1 Thessalonians 5:10
    He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.

    1 Thessalonians 4:13
    But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

  6. Truthy1 is exactly right. And Jay is correct as well. Anything going on after death is a demonic spirit.

  7. Why does the Darkmoon site have so many sock puppet accounts?

    Nice story that requires faith to believe it. But are you being a Jew (Crypto, AshkeNAZI, Zionist, Illuminati or Rothschild agent), for I have one too, that everyone has seen under the guise of Star Wars, Episode 1, Phantom Menace. The story is a Jew trick, Jesus mockery and parody. God and Jesus forgive me!

    There once was a child name Ani (Anakin), but is that a boy or a girl (Jew androgeny plot), that had a mother named Schmi. Ani’s mother claims that Ani did not have a father and/or that Schmi did NOT have a boyfriend or a husband. Wow, that makes Ani, very special indeed! Why and how so? Well, a special magi (Jedi Knight) Qui Gun Jin (Liam Neeson) discovers that Ani has the highest midi-chlorian count (fairy dust or Alien spark of Life) in history, even more than Yoda (ToyOta) that would have impregnated Schmi to make her pregnant and bear a son. Thus a putdown of all the following: the Holy Spirit, the Immaculate Conception, the Virgin birth and Jesus Christ himself. Wow, wasn’t that a wonderful Jewish Mind Trick (Jedi Mind Trick) written by Jewish and crypto-Jewish Hollywood film producers Georgi Lukasch and Steven Spielberg. International Jewry treachery is out in the open and no one seems to notice. Wow, how the crooked Jews have put most of us to sleep. The exception is of course the people on this site! Thank you Lasha!

    And now that Disney (owned by Jews) owns Star Wars, the Jewish perversion continues to dumbify the masses! I pray for all those deceived and sad people! I’m sure you Smart commenters here can figure out the rest of the Jewish plot of Star Wars 2 as Ani turns into Darth Vader (the Antichrist) or that Count Dooku meeting with his other Alien plotters to build a Death Star, describes his Alien friends, The Techno-Union Army ( Military-Industrial-Intelligence-Complex), the Banking Clan (Rothschild Central Banksters and Billionaires) and the Corporate Alliance (Multi-National Corporations and the Billionaire owners). Who knew the Jewish tyrants would reveal their identity in Motion Pictures? We here at TheTruthSeeker did!
