During the 7 or 8 years that we operated our Rescue Circle we had some cases where a seance was not necessary. This is one: I was working in sales for a tea and coffee company in Pretoria at this stage. One of our lady clients had a store on a farm near Roodeplaat dam. She was a regular customer and a really wonderful person. When visiting us one day I noticed that she was down and had sores on her arms. On inquiry she said she suspected foul play. I made an appointment with her and contacted our group.
Arriving at the farm one could literally feel and smell the evil in the air. So much so that Jerry, one of our mediums, was so affected that he started vomiting and was out for the rest of the evening.
Uncle Arie, whom you read about in my previous stories, said that we had to do with black magic and that a seance was out of the question.
At this time Uncle Arie received instructions from one of his guides.
He had to dig at a spot just outside the back door. This he did and found a small glass bottle containing animal nails skin and bone. The bottle and contents was immediately burnt and after a prayer we departed.
A few days later our lady turned up at the business to thank us as she was completely cured.
The reason for this episode surfaced shortly after. Her husband had an affair with their black housemaid, and she was responsible for the "muti" (medicine) to disable his wife. But the wheel turns, he committed suicide not long after and his lover left the farm.
