A description of the experience

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

When you visit one of our sacred sites here in South Africa, you will see that some of the stones have been brightly polished.  So called experts tell you that those stones were polished by many generations of rhinos and elephants scratching themselves – but wait a minute!

No rhino or elephant can scratch itself against a standing stone without causing that stone to topple over.  And these stones are standing fast and they are polished from bottom right up to the top.  And furthermore there are stones which are only a few inches above ground  which are also polished.  Tell me, how could a rhinoceros scratch against a stone so close to the ground? 

No, the polishing is done by people who are trying to draw up the secret energy of the earth through these stones.  The polishing of the sacred stones is done with hands or with pieces of animal hide; and during a thunderstorm some of the polished stones can actually attract electrical force, because if you touch the stone, you feel this electrical power coursing through you.

There was a time in remote antiquity when people tried to use the energies of the Earth to heal illness and also to extend the human life span.  The stones were first polished vigorously and then the women danced in a clockwise fashion and later in a counter clockwise fashion around the sacred stone.  And these things were done by hundreds of people simultaneously, whose aim was to arouse the crackling energies of the Earth. 

In other words, the people, by various actions, by dances, by jumpings and even by fights and other activities, tried to arouse the energies of the Earth to full flame – and very very often the Earth responded.  Once the stones began to give out a faint electrical feeling to the fingers touching then, then the sick people were led towards the stones and were leaned against the stone.
