Laubscher, B J F - Dreams of flying and OBEs
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
B J Laubscher – Where Mystery dwells
I must mention that during all my childhood years and even to this day I often have dreams of flying. The dream experience was always most pleasant; the feeling of buoyancy; the almost blissful feeling of gliding on and on but making flying movements with my arms. In the dream I made an effort as if swimming in the air. These were propelling movements of the arms and legs, very much the way a frog swims. They have never changed.
Now when I learned of the Bushman's experience-that he visited places in his dreams I also desired to do this but somehow these were always dream places and seldom significant except that the people were people whom I knew on earth. The experience however was so rapturous that I often requested a flying dream in my bedtime prayer.
Outa Jantjes said that the Bushman because of his knowledge of magic could travel by means of his spirit which is remembered as a dream which is not full of nonsense.
