Testimonial of Shamanic Tuition: The Three Treasures with the nagual Lujan Matus, written by Botond.
It will be easiest to begin with the start of my personal awakening. 15 years ago, With one of my closest friends by my side, we took some mubbies, the wall of fog appeared and we walked through to the world of lights. The light spheres there were beyond a harmony and love that I had ever experienced or imagined. They showed us where we are headed as beings of light and not to give up, because we are ancient, with a destiny that is ungraspable in its depth and passion. From complete interconnectedness to the never ending perfection of a boundless and expanding Love.
The closest word that I can think of for this experience is “home”. Our true home. Where we come from, where we are headed, and beyond. (I had not read any Castaneda at this time in my life)
When it was time to go back to the everyday reality, tears of sorrow flowed freely, because I knew it would be quite a long time before I would amass the energy to return. I knew this was just a glimpse. Before this experience, I was suicidal… and very much an athiest. So naturally, this was the most profound experiences of my life, untill I met Lujan Matus.
Actually, closer to the truth, my time with Lujan felt like a continuation of whatever it was that touched me ever so deeply and briefly, 15 years ago. I felt and feel deeply woven to his purpose and message, because I know in my bones that what he is offering is what was/is missing from my quest for the inner journey home.
I have been playing with different kinds of Kung fu and chi gong for around 15 years. Practicing one type, but eventually moving on to the next because of the “this isn’t IT either” feeling. The Dragon’s tears
and Quetzalcoatl Series
are magic. True, pure, magic. Unlike anything I have ever felt or even seen. The changes in my being, the way I see the world, the depth of peace within, the fire that consumes my never ending burden, how I deal with frustration… Everything is changing in my life because of these movements. The weirdest thing is that its my body that “decides” to do the movements every morning.
Not me. I had been struggling with smoking for over 10 years. And you guessed it, after the first day of movements, I stopped smoking. No, my body stopped smoking. I just cant do it anymore, and its not even my choice. Something is coming out of me, and I don’t know what it is, but I know that I have been waiting for it ever since its been lost, and that it is very good.
So what can I say about the three treasures
? I see them as an amplifier. The Dragon’s Tears and Quetzalcoatl say, are like the nicest speakers that you can buy. Crystal clear. Their effect on you, heaven. The three treasures is like the best amp you can buy. It turns up the juice in the tears and quitz in a way that my being is no longer pumping out rivers of bioelectric energy, instead I am the river.
Lujan said that the treasures is the ground of the other practices that he offers. I tried doing the dragons tears without the treasures, just to see. The effect, not even close to when the two are put together. Worth every penny and then some.
I had been waiting to see Lujan for about 6 years, so I had unwillingly built up a slew of expectations. No matter, he blew them all away. With the utmost care and potency, Lujan guilds us to the inner most potential of what it means to be alive. My body knows that as I deepen the commitment to these movements, they will deepen me. And in ways that I cannot grasp.
Lujan gives of himself so freely. He is complete in his being, embodying the unspeakable origins and power that is everyone’s birthright. And yet, he is as playful and light as the sandbox days in kindergarten.
Lujan, it was such an honor. And although I still don’t know what this change and process is that you helped start, I do know that it is of depth, grace, and goodness.
Blessings to all,
P.S. Those of you who go to take the treasures, you cant really prepare physically, but I would very much recommend working on leg strength (using static 15 to 20 min horse stance) and hamstring flexibility as much as possible. Because quoting Lujan “you never beat this system, it ALWAYS beats you!” :)
P.P.S. Another little plus… I futs around with solo guitar a little, and have never felt this connected to myself through my instrument. :)
