Laubscher, B J F – Has a vision of the death of the little girl who looked after his child
Type of Spiritual Experience
Hmmmm he would surely have heard the thump as she fell out the van, why didn’t he stop? Guilt about making her ride in the back where she ran the risk of falling out, might have played a part in his being played the image in his mind. This was conscience at its most effective. At least his wife had a heart, she at least was 'terribly upset'.
A description of the experience
B J Laubscher – Where Mystery dwells
Mr. S., a farmer of Wolseley wrote in Afrikaans about a vision of a tragedy which he could not have perceived by way of his senses. He was driving a small van and his wife and little son sat with him in the cabin while the little servant girl who looked after the baby sat at the back of the van where the "pram" had been fastened to prevent it falling off.
Somewhere along the road his wife asked him why he was driving so very slowly. He told her to wait and not to disturb him as he was absorbed in a vision which showed their little servant girl lying in the road, but in front of the van and not behind it.
She was bareheaded and her "kappie" was lying about a hundred yards from her body. She had a smile on her face and he could see this smiling expression most distinctly but blood was coming out of her nostrils; her dress was turned up exposing her thighs and he could see the pattern of her panties; at that moment they came to a gate.
Usually the little servant girl would have jumped off to open the gate. But on this occasion they waited and she did not appear.
He then climbed out and found her missing. His wife was terribly upset and they drove back immediately and there in front of the van was the body of the little girl, with all the particulars just as he had seen them in his vision.
