Tulla Intoon and Halthiorhin

Tulla Intoon and Halthiorhin According to the Finnish creed, each man bore within him from his birth a divine spirit who was his inseparable companion for life. This spirit became more closely united to its subject in proportion as the latter tore himself away from earthly things to retire into the sanctuary of his soul. The magician, therefore, aspired to a transcendental ecstasy (tulla intoon), to a great state of excitement of the soul (tulla haltiorhin), in Which he became like the spirit, dwelling in him and entirely identified with it. He used artificial means, e.g. intoxicating drugs, in order to attain to this state of excitement. Lenormant, Chaldaean Magic, p. 254.
