Inwangsan is the most important shamanic site in Korea, featuring the Shrine for the National Spirits, the Immortal Rock, a large Buddha figure carved in a rock cliff and many shrines to nature spirits. I did not know that the mountain was as scary as it is in a spiritual sense. While climbing the mountain I opened the door of one of the shrines and found a pig's head sitting on an altar inside, on top of a large mound of rotting food. Further on I stumbled into a ditch full of pig skulls covered with leaves. Near the top I encountered a female shaman doing a ritual and walked well clear of her. I pulled myself up onto the bare rock pinnacle and prayed over the nation, breaking the spiritual bondage here. I prophesied the "Prophesy over the mountains of Israel..." chapter in Isaiah. On the way down, the mudang (shaman) yelled at me in Korean and chased me out of the area. God came to my aid strongly at that point, counseling me that I had come in obedience, I was empowered by His Holy Spirit and I was covered by the blood of Christ. I continued to pray as I hiked down the mountain -- I prayed over the City of Seoul, over the people and the land, over the nation, over my family here... and God confirmed with His Perfect Peace on the side of the Shaman mountain.
