A transcript follows the audio controls.

Alfred Higgins:

The next thing I knew I was standing in our kitchen and I was watching my wife. She was standing over the sink peeling some potatoes and I thought, “Well, this is funny.” So I thought, “Well I don’t know, I wonder if she knows I’m here,” and I called her name. She didn’t say nothing. She didn’t hear me, obviously.

So my friend says, “She won’t hear you, you know.” So I says, “Well I don’t know. What could I do?”

So he says, “There’s nothing you could do. But she may sense your presence. You never know. Let’s just wait a little while.”

So I just stood there and I concentrated.

He says to me, “Concentrate your thought on her. Just think hard, you know. Think as hard as you can. Think her name.”

And I did and all of a sudden she stood up and she dropped down the… dropped down the knife and the potato she was peeling and she looked round. Looked proper bewildered, she looked. She looked almost scared and I felt rather sorry in a way that I’d scared her, because I realized it must have been me trying to get at her, you know. Anyway, oh, she just flew out of that kitchen. She opened the door and then she sort of shut it again and then she sat down and then she put her head on the table and started to cry. And I felt awful about this. I thought, “Oh dear, now this is terrible.”

And he says to me, “Don’t worry. She senses. She feels. She knows in herself. She doesn’t understand yet, but she knows in herself that you’re near her.”

So I says, “Well, if I’m going to make her miserable like this, there’s not much point, is there?”

So he says, “Don’t let that worry you. This often happens to people. They don’t know with any certainty. They’ve never been told about life after death. They’ve never been told about the possibility of communication and all that sort of thing. But she’ll come … she senses … she feels and she in herself, deep down inside, she knows.”

Clip 2: Higgins works at getting through to his friends at a pub

In the clip that follows, Higgins has his friend take him to a pub. There he tries to communicate with the people in the pub. It begins with Higgins’ friend taking him to the pub by just intending to be there.

Alfred Higgins:

So I thought, “Well, this is alright.” So he put his hand out towards me. I thought, “Oh well, I suppose I put my hand in his again,” see, so I did. The next thing I knew I was standing in the bar of this pub, see, and there were three of my old mates there. I went and stood up beside one and I remembered what I’d been told to do about the wife – to concentrate, think hard, you see. And he’d got this mug of beer up to his mouth and I was thinking to myself his name, see, and all of a sudden he plonked that down on the counter, you know. And he looked quite bewildered. He looked round, and then he said to his mates, my other two friends, he says, “That’s funny. I felt sure I heard… I felt sure I heard …”

So the others said, “Heard what?”

So he says, “Didn’t you hear nothing?”

And they said, ”No, we didn’t hear nothing.”

And I thought “Well I’ve made him…”… He thought, I suppose, he was making a bit of a fool of himself.

So he says, “Oh. It’s nothing.”

So they sort of laughed and said, “What’s up with you mate? You got the jitters?” You know, and they had a bit of a lark about it.

But he heard me alright. But it was done by my thoughts. One of the first things I realized was that you don’t have to talk to be heard. You’ve got to concentrate hard. It’s a matter of thinking all the time that you want to get into touch or you want to do something, and then it’s possible. You just can’t do it by sort of speaking out in the old way, you know. It was my first sort of lesson in this sort of thing.

Clip 3: Higgins tries to get a message to his wife through a medium

In the clip that follows, Higgins describes what happens when he tries to get a message through to a medium doing platform readings at a Spiritualist church.

Alfred Higgins:

So I thought, “Well, this is alright.” So he put his hand out towards me. I thought, “Oh well, I suppose I put my hand in his again,” see, so I did.
