Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Korean Shamanism – Muism – Dr Kim Tae-kon
The female mu, Moon of Seoul, became ill at the age of 22, and by the time she was 26, she showed the symptoms of being psychotic. When she was 30 years old (and while awake and not dreaming) she saw both sunlight and moonlight (a round sun and a round moon) on the wall, which caused her to jump around in an agitated manner. After this incident, she had shingut to become a mu, and since has been an attendant of Ilgwangbosal (the sunlight god) and Wolgwangbosal (the moonlight god), who dwell in her body.
