This is just one more example of the curse of ignorance.
Our "religious" establishments don't teach people the Truth. That is that there is NO death. That you do not lie in a grave oblivious of all until the trumpets sound.
Most of our weekly Rescue Circles were quiet affairs with meditation and spiritual recharging. Now and then the silence was shattered by an unknown voice. A spirit having tranced one of our mediums.
One such case was Uncle Gert who found himself up a tree with a pride of lion below waiting for him to fall down.
This was most interesting. It transpired that he while he was hunting he contracted malaria.
He realized he was going into a coma and for safety climbed up a tree. The lion came afterward.
He died in the tree and it is where the guides found his spirit.
Earthbound to the place where he died. This happened in 1880.
Uncle Arie was the medium and yours truly did the talking to Uncle
Gert.His main concern was his wife. He wanted to find her.
It took a bit of persuasion and I asked him to go with the guides who will take him to her. He consented but warned me that if he does not find her he would be back, and I would taste his sjambok.
Uncle Gert returned the week after to thank us as he found his wife.
