A description of the experience

Vusamazulu Credo Mutwa – Zulu Shaman [Dreams, Prophecies and Mysteries]

My grandfather told me that a sangoma must be able to draw knowledge from what he called the 'Hidden Lake'.  There is, he said, a huge unseen lake somewhere in the spirit world where all the knowledge of the universe – past, present and future is to be found

'Knowledge lives in that lake in the form of little silver fishes', my grandfather said.  'You must never say again that you do not know something.  You must just ask the lake, the unseen lake, to provide you with the knowledge that you seek
