Background

A description of the experience

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

My grandfather taught me how to control my powers of seeing and how to sharpen them and to make them more accurate and efficient.  He taught me the art of breathing properly.  He taught me the secret art of joining my mind to that of the great gods in the unseen world.  Her taught me how to sit still – very very still – and eliminate all the thoughts from my mind and call upon the hidden powers of my soul.

In short, my grandfather taught me the Zulu version of what is called in English, 'meditation'.  How to breathe softly and gently like a whisper until you feel something like a hot coiled snake ascending your spine and bursting through the top of your head – a fearsome thing that is known as umbilini.  This umbilini my grandfather told me, is the source, the primal source of the sangoma's powers.  A sangoma must be able to summon this umbilini at will through the beating of the drum and through meditation,  very very deep meditation.
