A description of the experience

B J Laubscher – Where Mystery dwells

A Mr. du Plessis writing in Afrikaans described how his little girl of ten came into their bedroom one morning and said:

"Daddy last night I was awake in my sleep. My body was dead but I walked about the house. I was on the stoep and actually came to look at you sleeping and then went back to my body."

He ended his letter by saying that "the apple does not fall far from the tree," as he is a most vivid dreamer and meets all sorts of people who are dead in his dreams and they discuss many interesting subjects. There were times when he went on long journeys in his dreams and travelled on trains and ships but there was never anything illogical and irrational about his dreams.
