DEFIANT RITE, Haitian Vodou: 4X

An initiate is lost in spiritual trance.  Once in possession of the spirit, the cheval  or horse, is mounted  by the spirit and loses all consciousness.  The entering lwa is free to use her body and so becomes the focal point of the ceremony.  It is a conveyance of psychic powers that reanimates and brings to life again the spiritual principles of the ancestors.
