(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

When working with a talking board, table tipping, rappings, or any of a number of the simpler methods of spirit communications, it is as well to appoint one of the sitters as “spokesperson.” If anyone has a question, they should give it to the spokesperson to ask. Different people asking different questions—with sometimes more than one trying to speak at the same time—can be very confusing even in everyday life. It is therefore a good idea to have just one person dealing with the spirit(s).
