Ancestral Calling is a problem to many people. What makes it complicated is the fact that there is not much research that has been done on how it happens and how it affects an individual. Even if we may want to conduct such research for the purposes of understanding, it will be very difficult as such calls differ from individual to individual.
But even though, there are occurrences which may be taken as common from person to person. Dr. Bhedlindaba Velaphi Mkhize has tried to combine his experiences on what happened to him when such a call attacked him and also the research he did from other Healers on how they were called: All that resulted in the writing of his book: Umsamo Nomhlahlo Wezangoma.
Dr. Bhedlindaba Mkhize in all his work since he was INITIATED (WATHWASA) has been trying to set out a grammar for the interaction between the Human world, the world beyond us or the ancestral world (whatever that may be, and however much or little we may be able to say about it). But still he has also tried to understand how these two worlds exist in relation to the Physical Universe.
His healing is done through the Philosophy of Umsamo which he describe as Holistic in terms of the Body , Mind, and the Spirit (Soul), at his isigodlo (Initiation Kraal) – UMLAMBOMUNYE – in Pietermaritzburg (KZN Province –SA) where he assist all people who are suffering from Ancestral Calls.
He has to date initiated more than 25 AMATHWASA now working on their own others still under ancestral training.
