[March 1, 1996] -- At a recent UFO meeting in Holland, Dutch hypnotherapist Hilda Musch presented an illustrated lecture on the abduction phenomenon. So far, she has counseled over 80 people whom she believes are abductees. Hilda asks her patients to draw what they saw, as a means of emotional release and coping with the situation. Her abductees see scenes and beings identical to what is reported in the American abduction literature: grey beings, with a taller being in control, ice-cold surroundings, "mindscans", baby- and fetus presentations, etc.
Hilda has drawings from children (the youngest she counseled was 4 years old) and adults. While there are obvious differences in style, all depict the same characteristics. Hilda showed how all, independent of one another, drew the "examination room," in which the abductee was examined, as a round enclosure with a large opening, a door, at one end. Above are two curved lines, a detail not mentioned frequently, but still drawn by a majority of people who had recollections of being in such a room.
Also at this lecture was a woman named Ine, an abductee. One evening, she was walking outside her house with her husband and other relatives. All saw a UFO arrive and disappear. Not all of them saw the UFO up close, but Ine and her sister-in-law did. At that time, Ine was four months pregnant. The day afterwards, when she got up, she noticed her belly was "small" again. Her husband believed that as the day progressed, it would "show pregnant" again; but it didn't. Therefore she consulted a doctor, who informed her she had been pregnant, but the baby was gone. The day before, she had also visited the doctor, who had confirmed the baby was alright.
"I was really pregnant, and have documents to prove I was," Ine said. [If this is true, it would be one of the first fully documented instances of "missing fetus" associated with abduction. Though this claim is often heard, a number of researchers in the United States have tried without success to locate medical histories of pregnant women that clearly demonstrate a missing fetus under such conditions. - ed.]
Under hypnosis, Ine was able to remember certain details; a beam of light from the UFO touched her belly and "took" the baby away. She did not see any beings.
Ine had had children before, and one since who suffers from some form of mycosis. She believes this might be "abduction-related."
Holland is slowly but definitely learning about UFO abductions, mainly through the work of Hilda Musch, who wrote about the phenomenon in several magazines, including magazines for the clinical community. Clinicians frequently refer clients to Hilda Musch whom they feel might be abductees.
Hilda Musch has no idea what the phenomenon might be about, but she does report that a majority of the abductees are told that "they" are "doing this" because of what we do with this planet. And that is a clear echo of what Professor John Mack has heard from American abductees.
