Rescue Circles (9) The Clairaudient rescuer (continued)
The clairvoyant continued her account to Hugh Dowding.
Two of us went to the Zoo. I almost felt hands tugging me in, and was surprised, for I did not expect to find wanderers there. But there were many, very many. The crowds of cheerful people, perhaps the children, perhaps the animals, seemed to make them feel not quite so desolate and forsaken - for all I met there were alone. I must have been a very unsatisfactory and abstracted companion, for almost all the time I was either carrying on or listening to other conversations.
There were several trying to find some grim sort of satisfaction in making rude remarks to people crowding round the cages; it was often comical to sense their confused surprise when they knew that they had been heard. I was eating an apple [on one of the terraces] and heard:
VOICE - Oh, you greedy woman! That goat needs it much more than you do. You look like a monkey, munching like that. I wish you could hear me say so, grinning to yourself there. I expect you were a monkey in your past life, if the truth were known.
CLAIRAUDIENT - I don't think so. Monkeys are so intelligent. I think I was only a sheep!
VOICE - Good heavens! She heard me! Did you say that to me, Madam?
I answered something to my human companion, and the voice went on in still more surprised alarm:
VOICE - Now she's talking in another voice! Did you seak to me just now?
My spirit companion, my husband in spirit, took over.
SPIRIT COMPANION - Yes. She can hear you.
VOICE - Who are you? I can't see who is talking now.
COMPANION - I am a spirit who was once that woman's husband.
VOICE - Oh, then you're another dead person like me- just wandering round forever. Why did that woman hear me? Nobody ever hears me now.
COMPANION - She has reached up and got in touch with us. It has made her sensitive.
VOICE - I was frightfully rude. Why isn't she angry? She just looks amused - rather pleased, in fact.
COMPANION - She isn't angry because she is so glad to meet you. And she honestly thinks monkeys are very distinguished ancestors.
VOICE - Glad to meet ME! Why? She can talk to that girl or anybody else she likes; why should she be glad to meet me! But I can tell you I'M glad to meet YOU! This is the first time I've found anyone to talk to
for years, I should think. You've no idea how thankful I am to hear you, although I can't see you. This is a real treat.
COMPANION - Would you like to see me?
VOICE - Like to! Of course! Is it possible?
COMPANION - Certainly. Try shutting your eyes and looking.
VOICE - What an idea! Sounds a topsy-turvey notion,but I'll try gladly; I'll try anything once....Oh,this is extraordinary! Do you look like a tall sort of light? Why, yes, you do! I can see a face! Excuse my saying so - I have never seen such a kind face! Oh, how glad I am to meet you!
COMPANION - Describe me. The woman will be interested. She can't see me.
VOICE - You have fine clear-cut features, shining with light. Hair rather thin on top. Expression very wise, and very HOPEFUL and HAPPY, and eyes more kind and loving than I have ever seen DOes she remember
you like this?
CLAIRAUDIENT - He was not very hopeful or happy, but I know he IS now.
COMPANION - And I did not look very kind either ---
VOICE - Are you wearing a lab coat? You look like a scientist.
