Using the method of "Spirit of the glass" and in company of people who are experienced and aware of that topic, I have had tons of successful and really delightful contacts to my "household-spirit" (which I mentioned in my very first story "The not so scary man at the window") during a time-span of say 5 years or something (about more than 10 years ago, though).
During that time I learned everything about his name, his period of lifetime (year 1700-anything if I remember correctly), his pleasures and non-pleasures, sorrows, reason for still being in the so called "in-between-world" and so on.
So to say, I have been in dialogue with that "spirit" constantly (not only via the board) and we've been talking about this and that for years! So we were really familiar with each other and there was absolutely no situation so far that would make him "angry" or "dangerous" in any kind.
Actually, time after time I managed to easily "feel" his presence when he is around and most of the time that feeling is accurate.
Anyway, there was one occasion of definite logical (physical!) proof of his existence and I would like to tell you about that in the first place, because besides of all trust and nice companionship to that spirit, I have always been a skeptic in some way, which means that I tend to never believe things without double-checking them first.
One day a friend of mine joined me and my grandmother for a "talk" through the "spirit of the glass", and he was a convinced skeptic. Not a non-believer, but still a skeptic.
So I asked my "spirit-friend" - his name is Cecil (like my nickname here on the site) - to please guess the actual number my friend was thinking of.
My friend did not have his hands on the glass, he was only sitting next to me thinking about some number between 1 and 20 and the "spirit's job" was to tell the correct number.
As of my friend's confirmation, the result was in 100% of the cases correct! We tried this for 5 or 10 times and also I concentrated on some numbers which were accurate in the end.
For him and also for me this was kind of a proof that "we were NOT being fooled by our own perception" and all of us were quite amazed by the fact that all (!) the numbers were right.
Cecil always had certain "difficulties" about numbers, for example dates or years he told us were most often slightly incorrect (which he always apologized for, he is just "not good at maths" haha) - therefore I really wondered about his correct answers!
I still remember that after that he wanted to leave quite soon because he was "tired" and needed to rest...
Anyway; there is no chance that a skeptic like my friend would have played a trick on me; he was totally honest with me and it was not a "fun-thing" to do for him, he was actually quite thrilled by what's going on there and interested in a reasonable way.
Actually, back then I was thinking that a good spirit would only unlikely join "games" like those to proof his/her existence, so I was wondering why he did this eventually?!
His straight answer was: "we know each other for so long already, why would I lie to you?" (or "trick you" or something, I can't remember any more).
After all our talks that seemed to me like a "plausible answer" - and also a lovely one!
In some way he felt "proud" of himself I think and from the beginning he was okay about our little "test".
In a skeptical view this means, either my "household spirit" is really existent (which I do believe), or this was a proof of active telepathy happening between human beings (about the numbers being guessed).
One of those two possibilities must be fact, there was no "show" or "prank" happening there for sure!
As I said, this was only one of many many talks/contacts we had made back then and me personally I have no doubt that what had happened (and still is happening) was true and solid.
When I got older though, the number of contacts decreased more and more, since as a working man I just didn't have too much time any more... Eventually no more contacts (through the board) happened since around year 2000 or 2001 or something, but they still do occasionally through other forms of communication.
I sort of "closed my 3rd eye" back then and whenever I "open" it again these days, perpetual activity is going on around me! (which I will tell about in another post)
All the best:)
