Cleansing for the Dead(Kukhushulwa/Kubuyiswa Ekhaya /Kugezwa/kungeniswa emndenini).

This is the most important ceremony to be done for someone who has passed away. Unfortunately most Africans have forgotten this most important ceremony for the dead.😥😢
After one of our family member has passed on there are things that we need to do for the departed in order for them to rest in peace & be a good guardian angel(Lidloti lelihle). Dead is considered evil by us Africans so when one has passed on; the shadow of dead will cover the
soul & the spirit of the one who has passed on. We, the remaining family have the responsibility to cleanse & sanctify that person in order for the person to be accepted in the Ancestral family & be a good guardian angel(Lidlozi lelihle) We have to exalt that person to a rightful
place(Simukhuphule). We cleanse(siyamgeza) exalt(simkhuphule simfake emndenini) made the person a saint or guardian angel(simente abe Lidloti lelinhle) then we can be able to invoke that person(sesingaphahla kuye) after we have done such a process.
We are not supposed to  invoke(asiphahli) to anyone before we have done such a ceremony; such is not done in any spirituality in the world. Our people have lost this very important ceremony that is supposed to be performed to the dead.
They invoke dead people as ancestors (emadloti) immediately after they are dead without performing such an important ceremony. Some have become Sangomas & Tinyanga under their dead family members who were never cleansed, exalted, made guardian angels(bagezwa,
bakhushulwa bafakwa emndenini, bentiwa Lidloti) thats why they cannot excell as Sangomas & Tinyanga. Some people go around saying Ancestors (emadloti)are useless yet they invoke Ancestors who are in the dark(lidloti lelimnyama)they have never performed such an important ceremony.
These days I will write more about African Spirituality & culture because there are few people these days who still understand our culture & spirituality & it is about to perish. Our Ancestors are always insulted by ignorant people who are not following the procedure in our
Africans waste a lot of money doing the so called unveiling of tomb stones; yet that ceremony is useless & have no spiritual significance for the dead person; it is just a show off to those who are still living. No matter how expensive the stone is;
but if what I've explained above has not been performed to the dead; then that is just a waste of money. The dead will remain in the dark & be a dark angel(lidloti lelimnyama) & most probably will cause problems in that family.
Do this ceremony first & then if you have money you can put your expensive stone to show us how much you loved your relative. Europeans especially the Roman Catholic Church; knows very well the importance of performing such a ceremony(Umsebenti)
Before you go for initiation (Ephehlweni) as Sangoma or Inyanga you must be sure that such ceremony have been performed for your Ancestors; especially the one whom you are initiated upon (lolo tfwasela kuye) otherwise you will think your mentor (Gobela ukuvakile) has closed you
from working well as many of them are always saying.

And those who are invoking their Ancestors (labaphahlako) must also make sure that Ancestors (BoGogo na BoMkhulu) have have been cleansed, exalted & made Guardian Angels(bageziwe, bakhushulwa bafakwa emndenini,
bentiwa emadloti) otherwise you will go around talking rubbish & say they are useless. If such is not done when you invoke them; that will lead to misfortunes & more problems as you will be invoking dark Angels (emadloti lamnyama).
Mayibuye I Africa✊🏼 that’s what I wish for; let's revive who we are; especially our culture & spirituality as they go hand in hand.

 When a person die there are several things that needs to be done depending on the area where the person died.
First of all; it is very important to fetch the spirit of the person from the area of death. We use several trees to fetch the Spirit eg. (Umlahla bantfu, umlahlankhosi, Umphafa, umzila zembe, umhlanga, umganu, lusekwane & many more)
white people normally use a round white glass like with a light to fetch the spirit of the dead. Most black people's relatives Spirits is still in hospitals, rivers & roadsides, stranded because they have not been fetched from the scene. When a person has died; the spirit remains
mostly on the scene of dead until it has been fetched by the family members. Though sometimes those who are evil (Abaloyi) can also steal the spirit & use it in their evil ways if the family has not fetched the spirit.
People are normally saying the body of someone who died by accident, stabbing, fire, suicide; water etc must not enter a home & must just end at the gate. Sometimes when lies are spoken every day & by everyone; it ends up being taken as truth.😢😥
That thing is pure lies & not true in our Spirituality because if we neglect such people & not allow their body to enter; their spirit will also be outside & evil people will use that spirit against the family & how are you going to cleanse, exalt & make that spirit a saint?😲
The truth is that people who died in such a way; before they enter the home; there are rituals that must be performed first & our people are lazy to perform such rituals; they resort in not taking the body home & again there are very few Africans who still know those rituals.
My goal is to help Africans restore their Spirituality.

After a person is buried we wait until we think that the bile(inyongo yakhe ichumile) has burst; it will probably be after two years or more then we can perform this ceremony.
Once that ceremony have been performed the spirit of that person is taken back home so that when we invoke (siphahla) the spirit will be home looking after us. Bile(inyongo) is very important to Ancestors; that is why when we introduced someone to our Ancestors we use bile
(inyongo) even when taking a wife(Umfazi /Umfati) Bile(inyongo) the wife will be anointed by bile(Uchelwa ngenyongo) to be introduced to the Ancestors & be able to be part of the family. Because one day when you are Gogo you will be able to even talk to the Ancestors of the home.
In my culture; if a wife has not been anointed by bile(inyongo) she has no right to call herself by our surname or even cook for the family. So we wait for the bile of the dead person to burst first before we perform such an important ceremony as this person will be grafted
amongst the other Ancestors of the family. This ceremony is done almost all over the world; especially in Europe.

I want to thank my Ancestors who enlightened me in all the ways  of our forefathers. In particular I want  to thank my Grandfather & My  Grandmother for taking
their time & teaching & also entrusting me with knowledge about  our culture & spirituality. They gave me undiluted  knowledge so that I can also pass it to the next generation .May the  name Silindza, Motsa, Khoza & Mhlanga be exalted & be praised always.✊
Siyinduna Motsa  Mvulane.Ndauwe 
Siyathokoza  Shewe.✊

 I'm sure some of Bogobela will be offended about what I'm going to write about, but my purpose is not to offend anyone but to uplift the calling of Bunyanga & Bungoma. I highly respect these callings; especially since I'm from a family of Tinyanga & Tangoma, infact
Bukhosi ruins in our blood Bunyanga & Bungoma is part of my inheritance. Umuthi is one thing that we were given & runs in our blood; Makhosi Thokoza.🙏
From the look of things the calling is losing its dignity yet so many people are getting into it these days.
People need to understand what is a calling? if you are called it means you are separated from the other people; meaning even your lifestyle will be different; you will no longer live as it pleases you but according to the spirit that is in you.

This is a meeting between you & your Ancestors. You come forth with your issues & whatever is going on in your life, you tell them everything.







You are welcome to build umsamo/praying alter in your room if you are renting. When moving into a new place you have to alert your ancestors before you leave home that you are moving and describe the place and give them the address.

Izichitho Zamadoda (Male Spiritual Curses)-Part 1 

Isichitho Sempethu (Worms)

There is a popular belief that Iizichitho only affects women; well that is definitely not true!!! Men too get spiritually attacked & I am going to do a few posts (series) on common spiritual curses
of men (Izichitho Zamadoda) 

One of the experiences I have had as a Healer; which is a common pattern with my male patients; especially here in Gauteng Province is men who excrete worms when they urinate(iimpethu)
Isichitho sempethu is a result of someone getting hold of a
man's semen either through stealing of a condom or the tissue that men use to wipe themselves after sexual intercourse. 

Now this semen is stolen then indoda iyabotshwa so that he is smitten & infatuated with that particular girl, give her money,

The Reptilian/Draconian Race are (Fallen Dragons 🐉) some of the1st species brought into creation by the Creator Gods.

This Race was taught that they are the most advanced, intelligent & dominant species in the Universe.  They were told to go & conquer. & that is what they did. Image
Genetically, this Orion Race ✨has the ability to reach 11th Dimensional Density (dark matter)They are advanced and they are quite powerful.  Many of them live for thousands of years and currently run systematic grids and programs on the Earth,
including Satanic Cult practices, political power pyramids, Corporations, Royal families, Hollywood Elites, pedophilia rings & the Illuminati.

When born, the young are left to fend for themselves.  It is survival of the fittest.  Those that survive have grown to become

On Losing Everything 

Have you ever gone through a complete life overhaul? 

Losing money, your job , house, health and love amongst other things can be daunting, overwhelming and stressful!!!
It always feels like nothing is going right, people turn their back on you & you count every cent passing through your wallet. Whenever you feel like you have lost everything, maybe you're right where you need to be in order to transform your life & to receive blessings due to U!
I have learnt a few lessons along the way🙏

1. Suffering and losses are temporary -Sometimes you have to let go of  everything to gain something worthwhile;

2.Material Possessions and Status are for short term pleasure - Remain Humble at all times!

Testimony Time from a Brother

My spiritual sickness has made me to travel all over Mzansi, even though I'm still sick. There's something i have learnt in my 8 years of traveling. I met sangomas including prophets. I have seen it all, here's my conclusion.
This is what I have observed from sangomas that genuinely help people, "THEY DON'T CHARGE YOU MORE THAN R1000 for their services", " THEY GET TAKEN CARE OF BY THEIR CLIENTS, THEY BUY THEM CARS, BUILD THEM HOUSES AS A TOKEN OF THANKS". Here is what I observed from genuine prophets
"They will never give you a real price for their services, they will only pray & tell you what to do, whether you give them R30 it doesn't matter to them". Here's is a common thing that they share, they never promise you Heaven & earth to solve your problem.
