One's spirituality is sacred and vast and it differs from person to person. However, the source is one. It can be quite a task to determine which spiritual practice is more suitable for each person hence the journey is tailor made for every individual.
Ubungoma is an African practice whereby someone in the waking life uses sage to communicate with those that have passed on – ancestors, this is mainly to bring about healing to people that need clarity on personal aspects of their lives. This kind of spiritual awakening can pretty much befall anyone, including our celebrities.
Below is the list of some of our favourite celebrities who have answered their ancestral calling - making them Sangoma’s.
Actress, Letoya Makhene has been actively practicing as a Sangoma for the longest of time. Her traditional healing journey has helped her in discerning people's characters' fairly quickly.
Many were shocked when Uzalo actress, Dawn Thandeka King, revealed that she too, practices as a traditional healer. Speaking to Daily Sun about her journey, she said:"That was the most confusing time of my life because of the background I came from, which is Christian, people rushed to me and started praying for me but that didn't help".
There is no way we could leave out, Lerato Mvelase. This talented actress, who also dabbles as a musician has always shown gratitude towards her gift as a traditional healer.
