words from spirit-inspired writing


Bessie Typewriter


|| This summary written on Monday 3rd June 2024

I love it when I revisit these transcriptions many days after I originally sat for them. Today’s sample is one that has brought me much joy to read again for this presentation, particularly as a medium.

When I finish a transcription from the speaker in the other world, I immediately close the notebook and forget about it. The notes are automatically backed up to the cloud and that is the end of it, until I revisit the file for writing these articles.

I read (and digitised) today’s sample session as if it were completely new. I barely recall even sitting for it, let alone the subject matter. So I was pleasantly surprised by the speaker’s words, who decided to give us a little insight into her life when she was on earth.

The biggest thrill came when I completed the digitising and decided to research some of her words. Unlike most online searches I do for information, my search query brought instant results that blew my mind today. Yes, I know, a small explosion, no doubt!

I have always believed that we don’t need to visit a medium to receive contact from the other side. It’s something we can all do in our own time and space. Apart from the evidence in this session, it’s a beautiful example of how the spirit world can and will talk to us without an audience being present and without all the distractions that come with that process.

By the way, the opening featured image will make sense shortly!

  • I do hope that others will appreciate how wonderful the process of automatic or inspired writing can be when we allow ourselves to be free to write the words we internally hear.

You remind me of a typewriter I once owned on Earth. I was a secretary and was fortunate to have one of the first ever in the office where I worked. I treasured that machine. I used to call it Bessy. I treated it with care and everyone was always telling me it was an inanimate object. But I still greeted it every morning and said, "Goodbye Bessie" every night.

When I was told I could come through to you this night, I was delighted. I'm using you like I used Bessie, to create my words. Isn't that progress, don't you think? This is the way of the world, progress. It can be seen in every aspect of life. Things start from little seeds and become bigger treasures for the world. I'm not overly familiar with the gadget you are using to write with, but I do like the idea. I could have used that every day for taking my shorthand notes.

I worked in a large insurance company as what was called head staff of the pool. I had responsibilities to teach others that wanted to progress their typing abilities. I never let any of them use Bessy though!

I used to marvel at the industrial progress I lived through. We even had electricity in a few of our rooms at home. I remember when the telephone started to become popular. We thought that was magic work. We never could afford one at home though.

Yes, over the years I spent on earth I saw so many devices, as you call them, come into the world. Over time, my early years seemed so old-fashioned as all the mechanical wonders came to be. Nothing stands still. There is no such state. Everything is in a state of progress. As you live, you do so in that state of progress. It is around you and within you. Yes, you too need to progress.

You have a saying about living with the times. That is so true. If you don't, you'll be left behind, and then you will always be chasing everything. The only time progress would ever stop is if time did too. But as that's not possible in your world, then moving with time ever onwards, is how life should be.

Progress is not limited to your world though. Everywhere and everything is in a state of progress. Everyone on earth, and every living soul in any world is progressing. I nearly called you Bessy then. Sorry.

I have enjoyed the opportunity to share my few thoughts with you, and those people that will read them. It is indeed such a joy.

I do hope that all of you enjoy your progress and remain prepared to change and adapt. Goodbye. If you were Bessy, I'd be putting your cover on now!

99 days after the session was transcribed

If nothing else, one should be asking questions about how this information came to be with me. My research revealed that at the beginning of the 20th century, there was a lady called Bessie Friedman who was the world’s fastest typist. Wouldn’t it make sense, therefore, that this speaker today called her own works typewriter Bessie? This is one of the strongest pieces of evidence I’ve been privy to in a long time, hence the high award.

🔷 If you’d like to check the trail I used in researching, here is a link to the page where I discovered both the photo and some extra interesting information.

🔷From her words, we get a sense of how proud she was in her job and how excited she was to be using a typewriter, a recent technological advancement of the era.

🔷 I find myself asking more questions about this session. How was this speaker to have known about Bessie Friedman’s achievements in the USA? Perhaps our speaker lived there, but if so, why end the session with a typically British phrase. Perhaps she’d not known of Bessie Friedman and it was her own psychic energy that linked that name for her typewriter. Definitely a lot to think about from her words, apart from her sentiments on the topic of progress.

"Everywhere and everything is in a state of progress. Everyone on earth, and every living soul in any world is progressing."


about the writing


The words are heard as a voice in my mind and written exactly as heard. However, occasionally the translation from voice to words contains grammatical faults. Where these effect the structure and meaning, during the process of converting the notes to this digital form, minor adjustments may be made.

How Writing Is Achieved

During a session of sitting in the power, Trevor opens his notebook and transcribes the words he hears in his mind as a speaking voice. The transcription is exactly as it is heard.

Only a few words are heard at a time, giving Trevor time to transcribe them. Trevor never knows ahead what the topic of the communication will be.

The process is known as automatic or inspired writing, determined by the depth of the connection.


The WFSIW sessions are usually published sometime after being transcribed. This allows Trevor to read the transcription from a fresh perspective and ability to critique better.
