|Hands drawn to the chest to symbolize two triangles and fire|
It is a secret story of ancient kingdoms memorized for centuries and passed down they claim including the names of their ancient kings and queens and captured mostly in oral stories and drawings we will for now call the "Sapitwa Book of the Dead."
One would be an upright triangle to symbolize the highest peak of Mulanje Mountain, Sapitwa and the other would be an upside side triangle, the opposite.
These healers believe in a Creator of this Universe they call Chauta, Namalenga, Mphambe etc and they also claim there are 4 male spiritual beings with a positive charge and 3 female spiritual beings with a negative charge to make a total of 7 pulling each other to create light including lightning.
