(By Psychic Khanya) 


When our mothers carry us in their wombs, they never know what gifts have been to handed to us by our ancestors.

But as we grow up, from toddler age, certain traits in us  can be picked up...traits that will later on in life be telling of us not being as ordinary as other children.

UDabawo wam (my father's sister) worked and lived far from home...KwaZulu-Natal, when it was still a homeland. She was a nurse at King Edward Hospital. She had tried two times before, to take her siblings' children to raise. I am told the two never survived even a month of her tyranny๐Ÿคฃ.

I was next in line. I remember my sister and my cousin sister (the two that went before) teasing me about the horrific life ahead of me...they would mention food okunekhakhazela (curried food), amagqabi akrwada (green lettuce salad) and children speaking a funny language. 

Regardless, I still looked forward to my new life in Durban. Word spread out...soon I was called 'Ntombase Durban'. 

It wasn't long until this family visited our homestead. I was so excited as I heard I would leave with them, back to Durban. I doubt I had ever been in a private car prior to that. At 7, I had only been in a bus to town, to get my first pair of school shoes๐Ÿ˜œ...barefeet was the norm don't worry. I remember seeing humans whose skin looked like tea with lots of fresh milk...(white people) very strange sighting. 


Anyways...the day came to travel with the strange family. One outstanding memory of that trip is them trying to get me to eat a pie...what the f*"!....I'd never tasted anything so yegghh in my life. I avoided trying anything they would offer me after that. Until we stopped somewhere in Umtata I think, they brought brown bread and amasi for me. Was I not relieved at seeing familiar food...hunger was beginning to take its toil on me.

We got to Pietermaritzburg, eMbali. I had never seen so many bright lights. The township resembled the galaxy...sasisazi inkwenkwezi zodwa kaloku thina into ezimenyezelayo๐Ÿ˜‚

I remember asking for the toilet. They showed me a room inside the house. I looked at the clean white bowel infront of me...I remember thinking lomama ucinga ndizokaka kanjani esityeni esiclean kangaka...worse endlini๐Ÿ™Š...(how does aunty expect me to poo on this very clean white bowl...inside the house nogal).

I left the toilet and held it in for the longest time. They could see my discomfort and led me outside to relieve myself๐Ÿ™ˆ.

Fast forward >>>>>>>> I passed my matric in 1993. Left KZN. I had made lasting friendships there. Boarding school exposed me to girls coming from all four corners of the province. 

Today as inyanga, I travel freely to most parts of KwaZulu-Natal meet other nyangas or stock up on imithi. 

After KZN was Gauteng. I enrolled at Wits University in 1994. Making many friends from all over South Africa. I have travelled to Mpumalanga and Swaziland on my excursions zobunyanga through a friend I met at Wits back in 1994.

I left Wits for the University of Fort Hare. Fort Hare later took me to Jackson State University in Mississippi as an exchange student. My first online consultation was with a friend I met at JSU. She wanted me to throw the bones for her. I was sceptical... I was only used to a client being in front of me...but we did it for fun. She was pleased...from then on family members would call for a consultation. I got used to consultations are the backbone of my practise today. 

At some point I worked in Polokwane (Limpopo). I may not be fluent in siVenda, Tsonga or SiPedi...but living amongst them taught me a thing or two about their different customs and traditions. Today, as a Psychic, I get calls from South Africans coming from different ethnic groups. I believe my travels aid me in my readings today. I can converse with people from different cultures.

Yes I thwasad isiXhosa and Ndau...but I truly believe ukuthwasa is only a means of opening you up as a vessel carrying spiritual and cosmic messages. It does not matter what tribe you are...if you are can assist people as far as Jamaica. 

I have come full circle.
