A Gobela. What a painful gift, you meet different people, with different personalities and backgrounds in your home.
They come to your space and you create a bond with them. Teaching someone how to change their character to fit the dlozi specs isn’t easy. People get confused what a gobela’s role is.
A gobela doesn’t constitute how your path will be laid out but those that lead you, which are your guides and ancestors.
Evoking an ancestor is easy but reshaping a character is lifetime.
Quiet a challenge to teach someone to learn to listen, the inner messages are always there to give us guidance.
A gobela is the mediator but does not regulate anyone’s journey.
Be led and the Journey will make sense.
