Chochepa chimakulitsidwa ndi kuima pamwamba anthu apansi azafuula ngati mphambe mpolowoni which means SO ABOVE AS BELOW in a code name for the world of mizimu (spirits).
This blog after 18 years of amateur research finally has the names of the 14 mythical spirits of ancient Malawi with 7 above as in the Universe led by Munsandipeze ndine njira (don’t find me I’m the way) and 7 below as on Earth led by Tomasi Bona (Atom, feast).
In ancient Malawi Myths and Tales, the Universe existed in twos hence beliefs that every person has an unknown twin who is not biological.  This is also the main teaching of pigeons (nkhunda) which come in twos so go the oral stories.

For those who follow this amateur attempt at Sapitwa Mythology this blog will now reveal the 7 mythical spirits of ancient Malawi for the Universe led by Munsandipeze ndine njira (don’t find me I’m the way) which is a code name.
These names have NEVER EVER been revealed before and the few who know them will be surprised to see them listed here and they can be translated into some other languages.
SO ABOVE as in AIR and WIND is led by the Hidden One who is the way and path with that sentence having the ancient hidden SECRET(Chinsinsi) name used in rituals, festivals and the Afterlife.
This name for centuries has been connected to the HARVEST and the AFTERLIFE using a mythical path through water to get to the astral realm of some hills and mountains.
That path was however different from the one leading to the Universe which was believed to only have mizimu (spirits) and their Creator locally known as Chauta, Namalenga, Mphambe (God).
And these spirits were given names by some ancestors of this land:
1.  Mikolo Njinjinji (African Sacred Ibis)
2. Kabadula Malawi known as Kaba
3. Saka (the Hunter)
4.Samba Manja (wash your hands) of the North
5. Kalipo (said when there’s food to be eaten which is provided by spirits)
6. Tandipeza (find me)
7. Munjira (in the path)
SO BELOW as in EARTH and WATER led by Tomasi Bona (Atom, feast) with the mythical 7 mizimu (spirits) of ancient Malawi and the mythical 4 winds of Sapitwa (mphepo zinayi) and Mount Mulanje among others which were a positive charge (+).
The first 4 positive charges (+) were:
1. Tomasi Bona (atom, world in his hands, feast) of the North Wind
2. Tagoneka Mbona (we’ve put to sleep Mbona, see) of the West Wind
3. Chandiona Goneka (it’s seen me put to sleep) of the South Wind
4. Nthanda mwana wa mwezi, Nandi (Sirius, child of the moon)
And the 3 negative charges (-) pulling with the 4 to make light were:
5. Chinsinsi Sungamwana (Secret, keep the child)
6. Dziwe Ntambamwana (magic pool)
7. Ife Zonse ( all of us)
An asteroid is believed to have fallen where Mulanje Mountain is millions of years ago and some healers insist that is how the life there came into being on earth through Tomasi Bona (Atom, feast) as an asteroid or comet (nyenyezi, mwala) exploding through a termite like mound to begin the spirit world BELOW on earth.
the African sacred Ibis known as Njinjinji. It's also in ancient Egyptian myths and tales and the photo is found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African_sacred_ibis

It’s through this lightning in a termite mound where the other mythical 6 spirits with Tomasi Bona (Atom) as the 7th came into being. These were different from Chauta, Namalenga, Mphambe (God) whom the ancestors believed was up above and beyond the sun and not on earth.
Tomasi Bona’s name means something like the whole world in his hands and feast drawn with a circle and cross which in English would probably be the equivalent of “All and Nothing”.
Now this Tomasi Bona is said to have 4 heads (mutu) from which he projected himself from the One. These include Pikinini Langwani of “Kuba” (Mt Namuli) which healers translate as child and giant and Biton. This blog will still not reveal the other 2 female names so they remain hidden for now but they are both Nyangus.
From those 4 heads are 3 others said to be at Machemba on Mulanje Mountain and these are Khumbi, Nthipe and Mpingo. So there is Tomasi Bona as the Atom and One and his 4 children who are:
1. Pikini Langwani of the North like the direction where Chauta, Namalenga, Mphambe (God)
2. Biton of the East to mean the star like Sirius
3. The Hidden woman Nyangu of the South to mean where water comes out
4. The Hidden female Nyangu spirit of the West to mean the darkness , black cloud and all that can’t see and all these four have stars in the Universe.
Shooting stars represented the journey of a king into the Afterlife when it fell West were the sun sets and the birth of a king when it fell East and stopped on the place where the new king would be born.
Such a star known as Nthanda mwana wa mwezi, Nandi (Sirius, child of the moon) to represent birth of a mortal being through a woman like ChInSInSi Sungamwana (Isis, the secret keep the child) would appear near the place like an ancient African cross to represent the 4 winds of Sapitwa (mphepo zinayi).

Now the ancestors of this land thousands of years things believed some mizimu (spirits) as in what Egyptologists or scholars call “gods” were kind of reincarnated in that the ancient spirits were born in women to become man.
Such beings of the spirit were believed to stay in the womb of a woman which represented Mother Earth for 8 months and then disappear and go under the Indian Ocean for 3 days before being born like a flood to represent the amniotic fluids. When ancient African priests and priestesses suspect such a birth of the mizimu “spirit” to give them mortal bodies they would warn people of the Napolo floods and earthquake that would come with them.
And that was Chinsinsi Sungamwana translated as “Isis Sungamwana” or Nyangu Sungamwana or Malira Tapalia known as the feared MALIYA.
When this spirit from the water met the ones from the North and united….floods were said to happen which are similar to online stories about the flooding of the Nile which was symbolic of something very important to the ancestors and it was only through a WOMAN where these mizimu (spirits) could be made MAN through birth.

Ancestors believed that certain asteroids/comets they call nyenyezi (falling or shooting stars) brought life and many other things to earth besides GOLD in areas where they “given” and fell.
So far the eyes of some “primitive” astronomers are on what some scientists and astronomers call Asteroid 101955 Bennu.  In September 2016, NASA is expected to launch “a very special mission with the target being the near-Earth asteroid 101955 Bennu.”
“The primary objective of the Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, and Security– Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx) mission is to return the first pristine samples of carbon-rich material from the surface of a primitive asteroid.
“Primitive” in regard to asteroids means original material formed at the beginning of the solar system that’s been little altered by heat or pressure. Look around you and you won’t find these sorts of rocks on Earth. Most have been reworked and recycled through water and wind erosion and the great engine of plate tectonics. “While there are plenty of primitive asteroids out there, Bennu stands out as the most easily accessible one by space probe” readshttp://astrobob.areavoices.com/2013/08/20/why-you-should-care-about-asteroid-101955-bennu/

Tracing footsteps to lead me home

Greetings from the Warm Heart Africa, Malawi.

I'm a Malawian journalist who grew up in many countries including South Africa, Belgium, then West Germany, UK, Washington DC and New York in the US and I love New York.

Trying to come up with the production of my life and by compiling some of my 1000 poems into a book called ‘Tracing Footsteps’ to lead me Home with excellent photography.

I also plan to film award winning documentaries based on the history of this ancient land called Malawi and the mysteries of Sapitwa and the Sirius star.

.....watch this space.
