The Nganga being a man of God must know and embody Bwiti, meaning he lives without the need to control. He relinquishes to the divine connection to God entirely. He does not live outside of the self in material image. He does not live in ego or material gratification that seeks accolade, approval, or affirmation from others to justify his position of self. His seat is in the self and only through this sovereignty can he be the voice of spirit, the letting go of that which is, this is the protection we experience with Nganga. Nganga achieves attachment to Spirits through rites and initiations. These Spirits he embodies, he becomes more of the self through these connections and these subsequent connections bring protection and spiritual accuracy to those healing. The art is one of gentle power without ego, it is psychological dexterity that becomes his strength, his personhood is the conduit to spirit, through spirits, is what is used in the work of liberating others from dis ease.
The Nganga cannot turn away from truth of self, connection to God, and the servitude to God. The Nganga is and always will be a servant to God. Through and by this devotion to service the Nganga lives his life as Bwiti, as Nzegho, Black Panther. Healing occurs through the Ngangas discipline to be without control, to be out of the way of the soul and its purposeful intent. To be able to be free of mind on demand and with mind when needed and called. This is his work. A life's commitment to the service of God is reflected in the work upon and through self. Nganga cares little for his perceived self. For the perceptions of others. he does not blur lines and through this others heal with his personhood.
