The Annie Nanji séances

Recorded: 1979-1984

Between 1970 and 1984, 
retired doctor of chemistry, 
Dr Dinshaw R. Nanji of Birmingham University
visited London twice a year from his home in Gothenburg, Sweden,
for private sittings with Leslie Flint.

Almost every sitting was a success 
and he was fortunate to have many direct communications
with his wife Annie Ottilia Nanji, who had died in 1966.

Here are some of the remarkably clear, 
and sometimes very personal recordings, 
from those years...

Recorded: Monday November 19th 1979

Recorded: Thursday November 22nd 1979

Mickey teases Dino because he is hard of hearing and getting older. 

Annie reminisces about their wonderful times together and urges Dino to sell their flat.
Dino asks Annie to try and send someone with a sincere interest in buying it. 

Annie wonders why her husband still visits the cemetery and tells him that she is not there !
She explains to him she is basically the same person that she always was.

Then they discuss a book project based on their séance communications.


Recorded: Saturday 
November 21, 1981

Mickey and Dino discuss the fact that Mr. Flint forgot to press the record button
at the séance on November 19th.

Annie talks of her work with spirit children whose parents are still on Earth
and says that 'everything in our world is as solid and as real to us as your world is to you'.

She talks of their own spirit children, Peter and Sybilla, and tells Dino,
'...I am waiting for you when the time comes.'

Mickey and Dino discuss the new Spiritualist centres in London and the power needed to communicate.

He shouts very loudly to ensure he can be heard...

Annie then speaks to Dino and they talk about their friends;
Gladys Hayter, Elsie & Jim Ellis, and Ted Fricker and his healing guide Sambo 

- and Dino recalls that he knew the name Sambo 50 years earlier - as the guide of a medium named Nella Bacon.

Annie explains how she needs to concentrate her thoughts for communication.
They talk about the flowers on her grave and how his death will reunite them and they will move on together.

They discuss family members in the spirit world, including Annie’s mother and sister.

Annie explains that she knows how Dino is feeling, by looking at his aura,
then she tells him that material things are not so important as they progress to the spirit life.

Annie says that a sudden sound, like a telephone, can affect the communication.

She tells Dino that the children are beside her, then they discuss their friends once more.

Annie tells Dino she will with him on his journey back to Sweden,
but she desperately wishes he could actually see her - then she reprimands him for not making his bed each day!

Annie explains how their spirit son Peter is involved in spirit rescue work, for those who need guidance after death.
and tells Dino how much she loves him and cannot wait to put her arms around him.

They talk of how important Leslie Flint’s mediumship is to their communications, 

and Dino tells her to look forward to their next appointment on her birthday.

[This is the very last séance communication ever recorded between Dinshaw and his wife Annie.]


Earlier Annie Nanji recordings are still to be added to these pages...
