Seeress of Prevorst, the - Speaking in tongues
Type of Spiritual Experience
Her family decided to call in another man who practiced magic. This man gave her a green powder, which she initially refused before ultimately being forced to take it. When she was administered the powder a second time, she improved a little and was able to stand. But a short while later, she started to run uncontrollably in a circle. Then she started speaking in a strange language, which she called her inner language or language of the spirits. Kerner describes this language that she spoke :
A description of the experience
The Seeress of Prevorst [translated by Catherine Crowe]
She was now never thoroughly awake ; her voice was shrill; she spoke High German (she had never learned this), and a strange language, which she also wrote, and which she called her inner tongue….
When she spoke this language she was in a half-waking state; and when she wished to speak in the ordinary manner, she made some magnetic passes on herself.
