The recent posting about lights near volcanoes put me in mind of the
Highland concept of the lightening in the blood which day-keepers, shamans
and healers of varying degrees interpret when divining and prognasticating
for their clients.  The Quiche connect it to the sheet lightening they see
over the distant lakes, but the Zapotec patrilineage shaman I met with
mentioned the dancing light that fill their stones (used in divining), make
their blood speak.
