Experience description:  

After having been to numerous apparent charlatans, I thought I had found a genuine medium, some 1000kms away from where I live.  At great expense, and many months of waiting, the day dawned for my visit.  I had received very (what I perceived) encouraging physical phenomena the week prior to the visit - I had witnessed a shampoo bottle stand itself upright whilst showering and a audio music tape shoot itself out of my car's tape deck into the back of the car whilst I was driving (perhaps my awful singing had something to do with it!)- I was convinced I was on the right track at last.

After an extremely disappointing visit with the medium, I returned home in absolute frustration and anger.  I directed my anger at my late husband, after all he had shot himself and in my mind he was the reason for all the frustration, sadness, etc., etc., so I went and took every single photograph of my husband down and threw them in the cupboard, explaining to no-one in particular that it "was all his fault ...", maybe I was hoping to provoke a reaction.

Without thinking and with my anger having passed, I realized that I had new professional photographs of my pets to put into new frames and on display.  Not thinking for a moment, I placed the new photograph in the place where my late husband's recently removed picture had stood - this was not done on purpose nor with any malice, within a short space of time, we all witnessed what my husband obviously thought of the replacement of his picture.  The picture flew off the top of the TV, but all the Christmas cards remained in place, the picture landed on the floor in front of us, perhaps if my son and his friend had not been there to witness it, I would have wondered if I had imagined it, however, my son and his friend were quite shocked.

I was quite annoyed at the time, and thought it quite rude of him to do such a thing, but having forgiven him(!) and bear in mind that I was used to this phenomena by now, I placed his pictures back in their prominent places, and they have remained there ever since.

I was ironing, with my teenage son and his friend sitting watching TV very close by in the lounge.

The photograph I had just set upon the TV threw itself across the floor, whilst the Christmas cards next to it and on the shelf above it didn't move.

My son and his friend were quite shocked, my son was used to the phenomena around the house, but it was more difficult to explain to his friend.
