Croiset, Gerard - Your son, Mr. Onno Leebaert, will try to contact you in about four or five years
Type of Spiritual Experience
Much of this is simple telepathy – reading Leebaert’s mind,- although Croiset would not have known this, he simply reported what he ‘saw’. It is a shame that the end result of the prophecy was not added to later additions of this book, as we will never know whether this extraordinary prophecy came true or not.
We have not classified this as a prophecy because it is not confirmed one way or the other.
A description of the experience
Croiset the Clairvoyant - Jack Harrison Pollack
An American Father Visits Croiset
Croiset the Clairvoyant doesn't immediately solve every missing-person case. Sometimes time is required to check out his impressions.
Mr. Onno Leebaert, dynamic North American Director of the Netherlands National Tourist Office in New York, visited Professor Tenhaeff at the Parapsychology Institute in Utrecht on June 15, 1960. Somewhat hesitantly, he asked, "I wonder if I could meet Croiset while I am here."
Instantly the professor went to the telephone, dialled Croiset's number, introduced Leebaert and handed him the phone.
Croiset and Leebaert exchanged pleasantries in Dutch and made an appointment for that evening. Leebaert wanted to speak to the paragnost about a personal problem: Many years ago his former wife had legally taken their son out of the United States, and Leebaert only knew vaguely where the boy was.
"But I never said anything to the professor or Croiset about my son," Leebaert later told me. “Somehow or other my missing son must have been on my mind. Otherwise, Croiset could not have reacted the way he did.”
As Leebaert was about to hang up, Croiset suddenly asked "Do you want to see me-this evening about something to do with Scotland? I see a mansion on a large estate north of Edinburgh.”
Leebaert was startled by this remark. His last information was that his missing son had spent his summer holidays on a Scottish nobleman's estate near Edinburgh.
Still not mentioning the word "son," - Croiset telepathically continued, "Does he frequently go to London?” This too, agreed with Leebaert's scanty reports about the boy. "He used to live in southern England but not any-more,” added Croiset. Since his son had formerly attended boarding school in England, Leebaert, normally an articulate man, was rendered almost speechless by Croiset's acuity of paranormal pictures.
"Now, isn't that what you wanted to see me about?" demanded Croiset.
Leebaert, a former actor and radio announcer, finally found his voice and conceded, "Yes! But how did you know? Tell me morel"
"Well, I don't have any more impressions now," replied Croiset. "But come to my house tonight at eight o'clock and maybe I can tell you something else."
Leebaert eagerly accepted the invitation and Croiset added many more surprisingly-accurate details about his son's early life. "Finally, Croiset said,
"Your son, who is about eighteen years old now . . is that correct? [It was.] . is a happy, well- adjusted boy. Don't worry. He'll try to contact you in about four or five years."
The boy’s father is confidently waiting for Croiset’s prediction to come true this year.
