Paganism & Wicca - What Is Nyama?




Like ashe, chi, heka, or mana, this Mande term refers to a natural magical energy or power that pervades the universe. 

  • It is the energy that propels the Earth; without it, nothing is possible. 
  • Nyama is the energy that drives all activities and is generated as a by-product of all actions. 
  • The more difficult and demanding the activity, the more nyama is required and produced concurrently. 
  • Massive, unregulated, and undirected amounts of nyama, on the other hand, may be hazardous. 
  • Sorcery is a technique for channeling nyama in positive (or desirable) ways.
