AFRO-CARIBBEAN CONGO RELIGIOUS TRADITIONS
Since the beginning of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade when the Africans were brought to work as slaves on the sugar cane and coffee plantations there have existed various branches of the Congo religious tradition. The various branches of the Bantu Cults are called "Reglas de Congo or Reglas de Palo" (Rules of Congo or Rules of Palo). There are many differences between those Traditions. There are three main Congo religious trunks that exist in Cuba: Palo Mayombe, Palo Brillumba and Palo Kimbisa.
The Congo Spirits of the dead who make a pact with the living are collectively called “Nkisi”. The spirits come from the World of the Dead and manifest through the Nganga. The Nganga is usually constructed inside of a cast iron caldron or even inside of a clay pot. The Nganga is a miniature world and doorway to the supernatural. The Nganga is the home of the Nkisi (Congo Spirit) who rests inside waiting until summoned by its owner. The spirit can only manifest to its owner who has made an eternal pact with the World of the Spirits of Darkness that will last until the physical death of its owner. The purpose of the spirit is to serve and protect its master by any means necessary. In the World of the Congo Spirits, good and evil are looked upon equally and weighed the same. That is, there is no distinct classification between good and evil as the Western World believes. Where do these spirits come from and why are they here? There are spirits everywhere around us. Everything, location and thing found in this world and the cosmos contain some kind of spiritual energy and life force. There are pantheons of spiritual entities known as “restless spirits” that for some reason have not been able to pass through light dimensions and are trapped here inside of our world until they complete their task or their destiny. There are many different types of spiritual entities which exist and can be found in the mountains, forest, stones, trees, rivers, oceans and other far away locations such as the planets and the stars. Spirits are pure unseen and invisible energy that can manifest in our physical world. Through the use of ancient magical necromancy incantations and ancient magical sorcery formulas and preparations an individual can tap into this energy and stabilize it by undergoing a series of initiations into this mysterious world which will allow them to walk with authority and respect in the realm of the spirits. In the African Congo religious tradition of spirituality, initiations and pacts with the spirits are achieved through a series of very ancient initiations that link the physical dimension which we live in with the outer dimension, where the spirits reside. These initiations were restricted to a hierarchy of select individuals who would honor the traditions, culture and customs of a proud African Congo people. When an individual undergoes the ancient initiation process these invisible spiritual entities will then recognize the new initiate as one of their own and in return will give the individual access to the secret “Cosmic Keys” to unlock the forbidden doors of the “Universal Occult Mysteries”. The scientific study of how these invisible spirits manifest within our physical world through the use of ancient necromancy invocations is called “Occult Physics”. The science of “Occult Physics” is the study of an unknown or invisible matter and its motion through space time and all that derives from these, such as energy and force. More broadly, it is the general analysis of how these unseen invisible forces react in nature, conducted in order to understand how the world and universe behave. The techniques of how to capture spirits and to harness their strange and very powerful energy to do ones bidding is commonplace in all ancient cultures but the method by which an individual accomplished this varies from culture to culture and from region to region. In Western and European culture individuals initiated into the Spiritual Mysteries were many of times referred to as Witches, Warlocks and Sorcerers. In the African Congo religious tradition they are known as Mayomberos. The word Mayombero refers to an individual who possesses great "occult knowledge" and supernatural power to invoke, summon and to command the spirits of the dead for a variety of reasons such as to heal individuals from disease, sickness, power and protection against the evil eye and entities more commonly known as demons. The practice of working with the spirits of the dead is called necromancy. King Solomon, one of the greatest and most famous individuals of world biblical history was a sorcerer as well as a necromancer. After the African Diaspora to the New World (Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade), these initiations remained almost intact with a few variations and some syncretism and the incorporation of indigenous Indian and Christian elements.
Although the nganga formulas will vary from region or country, they are all derived from the same tribes of the African Congo.
