Palo fundamentally utilizes two otherworldly powers – the intensity of the expired and the intensity of African spirits. Both are called upon in any and each Palo custom. The intensity of the expired is particularly noted. This expired soul, or the muerto in Spansh, is connected to an enchanted artifact, or Nganga, that fills in as the point of convergence of the Palero or Palo House. The more dominant the perished soul the more dominant the spells can be.
It ought to be noted as of now that the soul connected to the Nganga will to a great extent characterize the intensity of the spells set up. Consequently, numerous Paleros have more than one Nganga for use in different ceremonies. A Nganga with a shrewd soul – regularly a denounced crook – can be utilized for reviling. And a Nganga with the soul of an expired holy person can be utilized for mending. Comparative Nganga can likewise be made to concentrate on bringing love or money related success.
Underhanded and adjusted to powers
Palo Mayombe has a notoriety of being underhanded and adjusted to powers that bring ailment, curses, hexes and different infection. This isn’t without merit. It is generally acknowledged that the condemnations in Palo are the most grounded in every single otherworldly network. Indeed, even the Yoruba Ministers, Vodou Houngans and Santeria Babalawo will search out Paleros if incredible condemnations are required. The condemnations demonstration quick, are solid and frequently fatal.
But it is neglected that Palo has precisely the same capacity to mend. A similar perished spirit and mpungu can be called upon to recuperate any infection. The power and viability that they bring to the table the extent that mending can be similarly as extraordinary as that used to revile. Much of the time, even moreso.
The Goodbye, or Father, of a Palo House at last will have under his influence any number of Nganga for use in different circumstances. Numerous Goodbye concentrates just in a certain something -, for example, giving curses – while others might be “general specialists” in a manner of speaking.
Each Nganga is likewise connected to a customary African soul that will characterize the idea of the spells it very well may be utilized in. A Nganga that is connected to Kobayende will be more skilled at recuperating than a Nganga connected to CholaWengue, a soul of material wealth and riches.
