'Etheric Mirroring’ Part 2
The Etheric Dysfunction of Emilie Sagée and her Doppelganger
Emilie Sagée ... 1845 ... 18 different schools ... Ethereal Body Mirroring
One of the most fascinating reports of a doppelganger comes from American writer Robert Dale Owen who was told the story by Julie von Güldenstubbe, the second daughter of the Baron von Güldenstubbe. In 1845, when von Güldenstubbe was 13, she attended Pensionat von Neuwelcke, an exclusive girl's school near Wolmar in what is now Latvia. One of her teachers was a 32-year-old French woman named Emilie Sagée. And although the school's administration was quite pleased with Sagée's performance, she soon became the object of rumour and odd speculation. Sagée, it seemed, had a double that would appear and disappear in full view of the students.
In the middle of class one day, while Sagée was writing on the blackboard, her exact double appeared beside her. The doppelganger precisely copied the teacher's every move as she wrote, except that it did not hold any chalk. The event was witnessed by 13 students in the classroom. A similar incident was reported at dinner one evening when Sagée's doppelganger was seen standing behind her, mimicking the movements of her eating, although it held no utensils.
The doppelganger did not always echo her movements, however. On several occasions, Sagée would be seen in one part of the school when it was known that she was in another at that time.
The most astonishing instance of this took place in full view of the entire student body of 42 students on a summer day in 1846. The girls were all assembled in the school hall for their sewing and embroidery lessons. As they sat at the long tables working, they could clearly see Sagée in the school's garden gathering flowers. Another teacher was supervising the children. When this teacher left the room to talk to the headmistress, Sagée's doppelganger appeared in her chair - while the real Sagée could still be seen in the garden. The students noted that Sagée's movements in the garden looked tired while the doppelganger sat motionless. Two brave girls approached the phantom and tried to touch it, but felt an odd resistance in the air surrounding it. One girl actually stepped between the teacher's chair and the table, passing right through the apparition, which remained motionless. It then slowly vanished. Sagée claimed never to have seen the doppelganger herself but said that whenever it was said to appear, she felt drained and fatigued. Her physical colour even seemed to pale at those times.
Doppelgänger is a German word meaning double-goer or double-walker. Emilie had been fired from a total of 18 positions because of her doppelgänger, as the pupils parents complained in regards to this paranormal activity.
Her 18th job was at a prestigious girls school in what is now Latvia. The Pensionat von Neuwelcke School educated the wealthy daughters of the elite. It was from here that we get the most detailed accounts.
Though everyone in the room could see the spectre, Emilie apparently could not. Their hands passed through her, though they reported feeling a substance like a thick cloth.
The phantom twin also appeared while the class went on walks together, trailing the group at a distance, as well as in doors. According to Owen, the phantom was "perceptible to all persons, without distinction of age or sex." Except, of course, for Sagée herself.
While she was good at her job and liked by students, French teacher Emilie Sagée kept moving from school to school quite often. Why? She had a doppelgänger everyone saw but herself. In fact, Emilie didn’t see her doppelgänger even once. She did feel it in a way – she felt weak and lethargic when her doppelgänger would appear. It’s also possible she had some sort of control over it, despite not being aware of it herself, because the apparition would often be seen doing things Emilie was thinking about doing at a certain moment.

Etheric Mirroring by Colin Demét.
It is important to understand the mechanisms of our three bodies which will also explain many experiences from a large amount of Spiritual Paranormal Phenomenon; the preceding diagram of :-
THE HUMAN PSYCHE AND ITS CONSTITUENTS (Part 1 ) provides a brief description.
The Emilie Sagée Doppelganger ‘Case History’ gives a good example of ‘Etheric Mirroring' and explains how our Ethereal Body which is part material may be seen and touched; the latter is very important as spirits may use an individual's ethereal substance for their own advantage. A limited number of people such as Emilie Sagée experience paranormal phenomenon which sometimes breaches our Physical/Spiritual divide, being ordinary people living within a conventional and socially accepted life style, sometimes having no knowledge, interest or belief in spiritual or paranormal experiences.
Emilie Sagée, and some of the students who witnessed her paranormal experiences are fortunately documented over the sixteen years, of her transition through eighteen different teaching placements, and on one occasion her double was witnessed by approximately forty students. A lot of the experiences surrounding Emilie Sagée which were witnessed would have been unrecorded as in 1845 the Witchcraft Act of 1735 remained in force in Britain well into the 20th century.
Emilie Sagée was a good teacher, too good to be dismissed, taking into consideration that a reasonable case for dismissal could not reflect an acceptance of the unacceptable such as paranormal phenomenon; thus her transference through eighteen different teaching placements, as the pupils parents complained in regards to this paranormal activity.
The doppelganger precisely copied the teacher's every move as she wrote, except that it did not hold any implements, such as blackboard chalk, or eating utensils; it would be difficult for the Etheric Body to hold ‘uncontaminated' material objects being transient/seldom used, where as Emilie’s clothes and any jewellery would likely be ‘charged' with her ectoplasm, so manifest; if she had repeatedly used the same eating utensils for a long period of time, then they are likely to have been included in the mirroring.
The doppelganger did not always echo her movements; on several occasions, Sagée would be seen in one part of the school when it was known that she was in another at that time. The latter gives reference to Etheric Mirroring involving Astral Projection (Emilie was thinking how she would rather be in the sewing class with her students) the latter representing an example of Etheric Mirroring, projecting the Etheric Body providing an image from it's Spiritual/Material counterparts. The image seen is as photographic/video with no individual cognition; the ghost sits or mimics mirroring its counterparts (similar to moving characters in a computer game). So here we have an example of how a living incarnate person can project a ghost image ‘reflection’ via mirroring. In the same way an Etheric innate substance may provide recorded images which are simply photos/videos from the past, and there are many accounts of Mirroring from living people.
Earthbound Spirit will often use a person's ectoplasm (substance of the Etheric Body) to manifest materially. The latter is often seen invoked by material mediums often initiating group collective ectoplasm, (‘it felt ethereal like cloth, a spiders web!’) not forgetting unwanted attention from Earthbound Spirit Attachments in Possession of a suitable host.
Sagée said that whenever it was said to appear, she felt drained and fatigued. Her physical colour seemed to pale at those times. This often extreme fatigue is also recognised by material mediums, and my own clients experiences of Ethereal Attachment or Possession. The Etheric Body which was touched by Emilie’s students, is also used by Spirit via attachment/possession, for stroking/scratching and ethereal electrical disturbances of the host, to name but a few negative invasions.

The Etheric Dysfunction of Virginia Campbell and the Sauchie Poltergeist
Name: Virginia Campbell.
Location: Sauchie, Alloa, Clackmannanshire, Central Scotland.
This episode of poltergeist-type disturbances occurred in the village of Sauchie in Scotland during November and December 1960, and centred on 11-year old Virginia Campbell. It was investigated the following month by AR Owen, who talked to Virginia and family members, also local professional people who had witnessed the phenomena – a vicar, three doctors and a teacher. Virginia Campbell was the youngest child of James and Annie Campbell, Irish citizens. Her older siblings were adults, and her situation was effectively that of an only child. She and her mother were staying with Virginia’s thirty-year-old brother in Sauchie, with a view to settling in Scotland; however, her mother worked at a job at a boarding house a few miles distant, where she was also accommodated, so Virginia was mostly alone with her brother and his two children, sharing a bed with nine-year-old Margaret. The household seemed stable. Virginia was enrolled in the local school, where she was found to be extremely shy, but otherwise normal. Outwardly she was placid and unemotional, with a mature outlook and a sociable nature, although at this time she was starting to go through rapid puberty changes.
Anomalous disturbances occurred between November 22 and December 2, centred on Virginia. They were reported in a local newspaper, which repeated the statements of five witnesses, whom Owen was able to interview on a visit in January. They were the Rev TW Lund, the local vicar; Dr WH Nisbet, a local doctor; Dr William Logan, in practice with Nisbet; Dr Sheila Logan, Logan’s wife, also a practising physician; and Margaret Stewart, Virginia’s class teacher. He also interviewed Virginia and her brother and sister-in-law. On Tuesday November 22, when Virginia and Margaret were going to bed they heard a ‘thunking’ noise like a bouncing ball, first in the bedroom, and then on the stairs and in the living room. The noise ceased when Virginia went to sleep, as was the case with all subsequent manifestations. Virginia did not go to school on the following day. At teatime in the afternoon, when she and her brother and sister-in-law were in the living room, they all saw a sideboard move out five inches from the wall and move back in again. The sideboard was beside Virginia’s chair but she did not move it. That evening when she went to bed, loud knocks were heard all over the house. The family got neighbours in, who also heard the noises. The local vicar, Rev Lund, was called and arrived at around midnight. Lund established that knocking was coming from the bed head, and that it was not being caused by Virginia or anyone else. While he was in the room he observed a large wooden chest full of bed linen rock and levitate slightly, move some eighteen inches across the vinyl floor, and then return to its original position. The suggestion that Margaret get back into the bed with Virginia was followed by an outburst of ‘violent and peremptory knocking’. The following day, the third day of the disturbances, Virginia again stayed home from school. In the evening they were visited by Lund, who observed Virginia’s pillow rotating some 60 degrees, while her head was lying on it, in a manner that it would have been impossible for her to do herself. Lund also heard knockings and saw the linen chest rock. On this occasion the disturbances were also witnessed by the family doctor, Dr WH Nisbet, who heard knockings and a sawing noise, and observed an odd rippling movement along the surface of the pillow.
On Friday, Virginia went to school in the afternoon. Here her class teacher, Margaret Stewart, saw the girl’s desk lid rise steeply, although she did not appear to be moving it; later she observed Virginia trying to hold it down. In the afternoon she saw an unoccupied desk behind Virginia rise about an inch off the floor and settle back down. She went over to it and established that there were no strings, levers or other devices that might have caused the effect.
That night Nisbet kept watch in Virginia’s bedroom before she went to sleep, observing the same phenomena as the previous night. The linen chest moved about a foot, the lid opening and shutting several times. The pillow rotated horizontally. A rippling movement appeared on the bedclothes, which Nisbet described to Owen as a ‘puckering, as if due to traction by an invisible agency’. This puckering motion and pillow rotation were observed on the Saturday evening. Otherwise, the weekend was relatively quiet. On the Sunday, Virginia appeared to fall into a trance, during which she called out for her dog and her best friend, both of whom had been left behind in Ireland.
On the Monday morning more disturbances occurred in her classroom at school. While the class was studying individually, Virginia went up to the teacher, Margaret Stewart, standing to the left of her chair and away from the desk, a table the size of four feet by two feet. Her hands were clasped behind her back. While Stewart was helping her with the class work, a blackboard pointer lying on the desk started to vibrate and eventually fell onto the floor. Stewart put her hand on the desk and felt it vibrating, although the desk itself was not moving. Then one side swung round.
In the afternoon Virginia was taken to stay with a relative, where loud knockings were heard throughout the house.
On Tuesday, Virginia was visited by Dr William Logan and his wife Dr Sheila Logan, who heard the knocking noises near Virginia, and observed that they were evidently not caused by her or anyone else. They described the noises as varying between ‘gentle tappings’ and, when they were about to leave, ‘violent agitated raps’. Later in the afternoon there was another occurrence of the trance and the agitated sleep talking. Wednesday was uneventful. On Thursday, Logan and Nisbet set up a film camera and tape recorder in Virginia’s room, where between 9pm and 10.30pm a variety of noises were heard, ranging from tappings to agitated knocks. The rippling phenomenon on the bedclothes was also observed. After 10.30pm, Virginia’s uninhibited hysterical talking returned in a trance state. At 11pm, Lund and three other church ministers arrived to carry out a fifteen minute service of intercession, during which some knockings were heard. Several noises were recorded up until just after midnight, including ‘loud peremptory knocks’, a ‘harsh rasping, “sawing” noise’ and a scream from Virginia at seeing the lid of the linen chest rising – all three of which were later broadcast on a BBC radio programme about the events. From this time the disturbances weakened and died out, although as long as seven weeks later, Stewart reported a flower bowl that Virginia had placed on her (Stewart’s) desk moved across its surface in the same way as the blackboard pointer had on a previous occasion.
Owen considers all these phenomena to be well-attested, coming from credible witnesses. Other less-well attested phenomena that was described to him included the classroom door ‘banging open’ after Virginia had been sent out, shutting it behind her; an apple floating out of a fruit bowl and a shaving brush flying around the bathroom; displaced objects; coloured writing appearing briefly on the girls’ faces; and Virginia’s lips turning bright red. The girls also reported feeling being poked on the torso or legs, pinched or nipped while lying in bed.
“Virginia was a shy withdrawn girl, but very pleasant” Although she wasn’t really forthcoming, she was in every other way quite normal”
THE VIBRATING TABLE: Margaret, Virginia's teacher said, “Virginia was a shy withdrawn girl, but very pleasant. Although she wasn’t really forthcoming, she was in every other way quite normal. The most unnerving thing that I experienced in the classroom was when on one occasion I was sitting behind my large oak table, Virginia was standing at the other side of the table with her hands clasped firmly behind her back. Suddenly, a large blackboard pointer cane which was lying flat on my table, started to ‘vibrate’. At first it vibrated slowly, and then increased as the seconds wore on. I sat transfixed looking at this, then the table, which was quite heavy, started to rise up slowly into the air, and also vibrated. I put my hands on the table and tried to push it back down but with no success. I was quite horrified, but it did not stop there. The table continued to vibrate as it hovered a few inches off the floor. Then the table rotated through 90 degrees so that where I had moments before sat behind the long edge of the table, the table had rotated so that it’s narrow edge was now directly in front of my stomach. I looked up at Virginia and saw that she was quite distressed and I remember her saying, ‘Please miss, I’m not doing that honest I’m not’. I calmed her down, just then, a bowl of flower bulbs shot straight across the table.” Margaret went on to discuss with me other aspects of strange events that had occurred within the classroom more so the school jotters (books) which would rise up into the air and move away from the direction of where Virginia was at the time. These objects never seemed to move towards Virginia, they always moved in a direction ‘away’ from her. Margaret also informed me that she had noticed that strange things seemed to occur on a 28 day cycle!
Another witness mentioned at this time that animals are to some degree psychic, so I decided to test this theory and I took my pet dog along to the Campbell house and even although these same knockings and rapping’s could be heard in Virginia’s bedroom, my dog was at no time disturbed by it all. My feelings on the matter are that these events have nothing to do with ghosts or spirits. I believe that the shift in environment from a rural farming community life in Ireland, leaving behind her friends and such and coming over to Scotland, was, in a sense, a bit of a trauma and that somehow, this suppressed emotion was externalised to objects and items close to Virginia.

Etheric Mirroring by Colin Demét.
A.R.G. Owen considers all these phenomena to be well-attested, coming from credible witnesses.
The most common denominator for negative Etheric disturbance is psychological disruption initiating friction/disharmony between the three components of our psyche, being the Material, Astral and Etheric Bodies. From the reports we have, Virginia being eleven years of age was going through pubescent changes which is often a major cause of psychological and Material disharmony.
Virginia was also experiencing prolific life changes relating to her change of environment; being moved from her home in Ireland to relocate in Scotland. The separation from her dog Toby, and close friend Anna would also be likely to add negative affects, fuelling the turmoil of disruption.
Virginia was having a ‘Spiritual Breakdown’ displayed by her dissociation/trance which was a psychological safety mechanism of shutting off from daily life. The loss of our main fixations in life, including loved ones brings us closer to the Spiritual Dimension and Etheric and Astral experiences.
One can only assume the feelings of isolation this child felt and was experiencing as she escaped into another dimension searching for her loved ones.
All the Material disruptions are caused by uncontrolled Psychokinesis resulting from the fragmentation of the Psyche and its constituents initiating Etheric Mirroring. An Etheric transference, image or movement is not a Spirit; this is why the witnesses dog showed no response to the surrounding phenomena.
“It is beyond all possibility that five responsible persons should be so deceived at various occasions over a period of two weeks!” Dr A.R.G. Owen, fellow at Trinity College.
Thank you for sharing these messages.
I hope they help you to understand more about our psyche and how we may be affected by fragmentation.
There are of course too many to mention, instances of reflections from Etheric Mirroring, from our fleeting glances quickly dismissed as ‘nothing' because we don't want to be seen as going ‘out of our minds'. It can easily become confusing as peoples spirits which are incarnate become reflected in a similar way to the reflections from discarnate spirits; it may be more understandable if we realise that discarnate spirits were once people, and as people they can become confused. When we understand something, confusion dissipates and we can change and ‘move on’.
My comments and theories are substantiated by over thirty years of working with disturbed people and Spirits using altered states of consciousness, although my association with the spiritual dimension is transferred from past lifetimes. As a child I would watch coloured orbs floating around my bedroom, which resulted in my being taken to the eye hospital; fortunately I wasn't prescribed medication and was simply told that the things I saw were not acceptable. I used to have terrible nightmares as a child until one day I awoke and knew there was something on the bottom on my bed ... after peeping over my bed covers I discovered a full sized Lion ... lay calmly and majestically across the bottom of my bed ... yes I was frightened and yet I knew he was a friend. The nightmares stopped but the university of life continued and I was always more content within the world of spirit with my guardian by my side. I soon became aware that to most other people, anything ‘out of the ordinary’ was either silly, or made into horror movies. As I moved through life and socially accepted educational systems I was warned to keep my opinions to myself; I remember starting the BAC introduction to counselling course in 1990 ... I mentioned altered states of consciousness, and how quickly ‘free association’ could release past trauma! ... I was told to leave the course!
I returned to Person Centred Counselling again, only this time I kept my ideas to myself as I contributed to the fixated teachings of Carl Rogers. One year later I completed the BAC certificate of counselling course which I have found to be very beneficial ... but not a totality of healing within its own prescription, I prefer an holistic approach to healing.
The pain remains the same as I work with clients who are suicidal being prescribed medication for a prolonged period of time. Most of the ‘almost lost’ souls I work with are moved into the light often within two sessions, both incarnate and discarnate, for the dead need as much help as the living. As a Spirit Release Therapist I have worked with many clients who have had exorcisms; one having seven exorcisms from a Bishop ... it was not a Demon it was a Spirit, a Spirit which needed love and light and not sending to hell; for what right have we to judge, for when you fight fire with fire you will inevitably end up being burned.
The preceding messages are from spirit and I hope they will bring some understanding of our metaphysical spiritual dimension for you, because while we treat peoples symptoms with long term medication instead of finding and treating the cause, we live in ignorance. All I ask is that you share the messages and understandings I myself have been given; I do try to put as much information as possible on my websites to share my messages with others, so please take a look if you want to.
Thank you for sharing.
