3964. About mediums
There were mediums present with me as it were reclining overhead, who were speaking as if in their sleep, but still, speaking in a good and true manner, like those who are not in a sleeping state. Evil spirits were streaming in through them, as I noticed from various indications, and from various maneuvers - such as trying to impersonate others, and other devices I do not remember - but their influence was immediately dissipated. No sooner had the mediums received these things, than they were at once dissipated, so good spirits would operate through them, even inward ones of female gender, who can be called general mediums. Whether such are also with people on earth, I do not know.
