Lujan Matus – Lo Ban Pai-Testimonials Page 1

Meeting the Nagual Lujan Matus

I came to meet Lujan Matus trying to let go of my expectations for what was going to happen, but after reading his books I had unintentionally built up a very intellectual idea of what this man was going to be like. Everything I had expected was completely blown away, and as I quickly learned, this will always be the case, in every single moment, for as long as I know Lujan.

When we first met in person, the meaning of being empty became immediately clear as we met eyes. I realized for the first time that almost everyone you meet has a sense of identity and a personality that they are projecting. When you look at them, they are subconsciously sending you a message of who they are. Looking into Lujan’s eyes is more like looking into a mirror than looking at a man.

His being is frictionless, and if your energy tries to define him, it’s like trying to grab onto running water. This is because of the fact that Lujan himself has no idea who he is, and is completely comfortable with discovering his own truth moment by moment, instead of desperately trying to cling to some social imposed sense of self.

Lujan operates on a level that transcends thought, where realization and understanding bubble up with totally uncontrolled spontaneity from the limitless void of potential that exists within all of us.

The effect that he has on anyone who enters his energy field is that their own void is summoned to open up, this is why people break down into tears and have their lives seemingly uprooted from only a few minutes of encountering Lujan. Their emptiness hears itself being called forth, and all of the other baggage being carried simply cannot withstand the pressure.

I came in the room trying to figure out and analyze what was going on, trying to not be involved. There was another man who was already going through a huge personal upheaval, and I was a little frightened to be honest. When Lujan asked me how I was feeling, I instinctively tried to figure out what would be the best thing to say to keep myself safe (although I didn’t consciously think about what I was doing until later). He immediately recognized things about me, and what I was presenting energetically

After two weeks with Lujan, my being has been completely transformed. He created the space for my own true resources to come forth and gave me tools that allowed me to transform myself. He shows a way to live that is very foreign to most of us, and it wakes you up to remembering very deep levels of what we are as human beings. You can fight it, but once your body knows what real truth feels like, it will try to come to the surface.

Letting go and accepting this process can be done quickly with grace, or take a lifetime of struggle. The choice belongs to each of us individually, but once we witness that level of integrity, there is no going back. Every aspect of our lives are destined to be transformed.

This is the level of subtlety and power by which Lujan lives, and by which we all need to live. We are dynamic energy that is constantly in flux, and everything that we manifest internally has an affect on the environment around us.

Filmmaker – The Cosmic Giggle


As I made my way up to the house in which the Nagual was staying my heart was racing. I had been engaged in Skype conversations over the internet for over a year at this point. His countless lessons had changed the very course of my life. I walked a new path now far from where I began.

For all our conversations I had never actually met the man behind the voice. Little did I know how different life was about to become.

I stepped through the door and we made our first greetings. I was overwhelmed with the sense of having seen this man somewhere before. I could not get past the familiarity I felt as soon as we met. I had dreams of him before but I always dismissed them as normal dreams, reflecting what had been on my mind that day. But I could not dismiss how similar the man standing in front of me looked to the image I had in my head of him all along.

He had told me roughly how old he was but when I looked into his face he appeared to be about my age…20 years less than his. A trait he attributed to the Dragons Tears system I was about to learn. As we sat in his living room he fixed me with an unbending gaze. I had seen those eyes before. Now I knew how the field mouse must feel when the in inescapable eye of the hawk in on him.

I felt as if every unnecessary facet of my person was going to be burned away under his stare. Eventually I relaxed and we began our session. Later in the afternoon, after we had covered a few of the movements and were resting, Lujan walked over to a small table a collection of fresh fruit. He pick up a pineapple and ask “Can you smell this?” I was across the room about ten feet away. I smelled the air and said “No”.

Lujan took the large fruit between his hands and lowered his head. “Here” he whispered almost imperceptibly and the scent of pineapple washed over my face. This was a telekinetic maneuver he explained. To want without wanting. Our conversations and practices continued for several more days.

At one point Lujan asked me to stand on the other side of the room again. This time he had me hold my hands at my sides. He held his in a similar fashion. He began to make small flicking movements with his hands by bending them at the wrists. Suddenly I felt what seemed like little taps on the palms of my hands. This he explained was a similar transfer like the fruit.

My time with the Nagual has again shifted the path in which I was on and I will follow his parting words… “Expect the Unexpected”

Cape Town Workshop 2010

On 11 April 2010 I arrived in Cape Town, South Africa for two weeks of workshops with Lujan Matus. Week one was Dragon’s Tears and week two Awakening the Energy Body, which included the Golden Lotus. Two of us had studied the Dragon’s Tears.

Week One: Dragon’s Tears

24 Attendants learned the advanced set of the Dragon’s Tears over 5 days and 4 additional sessions in the following week.

It was quite an experience to do the tears in a group. Towards the end of the workshop, when people had become more comfortable with the form the air would charge with a silence that was palpable and alive with energy.

I noted a marked increase in either my energy levels, or my ability to feel it, or both. My hands and forearms were burning at times –especially when passing specific areas in my energy field.

Lujan explained many things regarding the Dragon’s Tears; the energetics of movements, the internal and external chakras and how the Tears interacts with them. One purpose of the Tears is to develop the Blue spectrum in the practitioner. This involves engaging and activating the upper-Chakras (Heart and above).

Also the Tears work with the lower chakras to support the individual who fights to extricate themselves from socially conditioned states powered by these centres. The approach is quite novel yet simple.

Week two: Awakening the Energy Body & the Golden Lotus.

Week two had only a few attendants. Sessions were 4 hours each morning which allowed them to take on an immersion format. Because we did follow-up sessions of the Dragon’s Tears at night, those who attended Awakening the Energy Body could notice the difference when doing Dragon’s Tears with energy channels opened by the Awakening the Energy Body.

The workshop included the “Tiger claw” sequence from the Windlock System, which focused on developing the “upper-vest”. The Claw sequence activates and engages the upper-vest which, amongst other things is preparation for the Jaguar Series. The upper vest activation affects energy in the personal field, and hence one’s interaction with the environment and others.

Lujan also included The “Golden Lotus” which is normally taught as a separate sequence. As before people asked interesting questions and I learned a lot of things. At one point Lujan “confronted” one of the participants in order to have an example that would assist him to explain certain principles. This allowed many other topics to be discussed, many based on the ‘processing’ that Awakening the Energy Body initiated in participants.

I was happy that the group in Cape Town could welcome and host Lujan and Mizpah in the midst of their move to Costa Rica. Kirsten who arranged it all –and did a splendid job, deserves a very special mention.


I am happy to recommend training with Lujan, one-on-one, or via workshops. His integrity is a testimony to the teachings he lives daily. His heart/truth-based approach to personal growth is text-book self-empowerment: One takes it home to apply independently.

I treasure time spent with Lujan under any circumstances because he lives impeccably. Learning by directly experiencing and being exposed to another perform something that one is after just seems to work better. Thank you again for your Love, openness, caring and sharing.
