A description of the experience

Mircea Eliade – Shamanism Archaic techniques of ecstasy

And it was also known that the soul of the deceased did not leave the earth immediately; it lingered about the house for a certain period which might be as much as a year.  This explains too, why it was invoked during the sacrifices and offerings were made in its honour.
