Levitation Made Easy

Weighing in at 238 pounds, the irrepressible Agnes Guppy was one of many famous cases of levitation from the mid 1800s. Her most famous flight become known as 'The Transit of Venus' when the ample bosomed woman floated some three miles across the London skies, from her home in Highbury to a house conducting a seance in Bloomsbury.

Six men and two women were huddled about a table with professional mediums Frank Herne and Charles Williams. A music box began to levitate and tinkle out its tinny tune while tiny lights floated in the air. One of the spirits present asked the assembled if they would like them to bring something and a young woman responded "I wish she'd bring Mrs Guppy."

Soon after there was a magnificent bump and a shriek. Mrs Guppy appeared standing in the middle of the table wearing her nightgown and bedroom slippers. In one hand she held a pen and in the other her accounts book. The ink in the pen was wet.

Well if Mrs. Guppy can do it certainly you or I can do it.

Perhaps all we need is to follow this sage advice from G.K. Chesterton: "Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly. Devils fall because of their gravity."

Let me know if you have any luck with that.
