seeing in a sacred manner

seeing in a sacred mannerAnd while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit; and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being. ~ Black Elk

I have spoken before about unplugging from the man-made matrix; removing ourselves from the stories that hold us prisoner to fear, hate, ego, and dis-ease. The man-made matrix is essentially the dominant paradigm comprised of a system of beliefs that has been in place for thousands of years and perpetuates the separation of the human species from the earth, from all other beings, and from each other. This matrix exists, essentially, in all aspects of life. It infects our food supply, our oceans and rivers, our rain forests, our wildlife, our air. Our hearts, minds, and spirits are suffering as a result of everything this man-made matrix touches. It resembles a plague; a disease that vigorously attempts to infect everyone in its path. And since it is everywhere, we are all in its persistent path of destruction as it continually attempts to feed off of the life force of everything, ourselves included. The man-made matrix is the direct cause of all human suffering.


When we remove ourselves from the distractions of the world and enter into silence, a world of information beyond our ordinary senses emerges filling us with wonder and wisdom. It is when we connect with the earth in silence that the oneness and unity of all things become clear to us. Our seeing becomes activated. Seeing is more than looking with our eyes, it is our ability to perceive and sense and feel the energy of the cosmos and each thing within it as it truly exists.

Seeing is not something that is exclusive to shaman, it is a sense to which we all have access. If we are caught up in the distractions of the world and the illusions that we are constantly bombarded with, our seeing becomes limited or disappears completely. And then our belief in the man-made matrix increases, fueling separation and futility and we become more strongly chained to an illusory construct that doesn’t even belong to us.

When we take the time to sit within silence, we are able to identify the patterns of the world.  It is through meditation, sweat lodge, vision quest or going within that we recognize the patterns upon patterns. This is restorative to our spirits and our souls and as our true knowing begins to increase it strengthens our will to succeed in transcending old, destructive, repetitive patterns.

Why is it that we humans become so caught up in the stories and dramas of the world? What motivates us to give away our power to deceptive realities? The stories that we buy into are the very illusions that prevent us from living our lives in a state of balance, connection, mutual respect, well-being, abundance, and love. When we became disconnected from the earth, from silence, we became disconnected from our hearts and our souls and each other.

As seers we have the potential and the power to create new stories and visions, new and amazing points of awareness, to truly be a multi-faceted reflection of the diverse and inexplicable beauty that flows through the universe. We can transform the profane into the sacred. In so doing we will once again embody a sense of connection with all living things within this great and beautiful web of creation, this all-encompassing and mysterious web of life.

  1. Last try ☺ This matrix you mention, see any resemblance to the Foreign Installment? I have tried before to show that this is not an entity like Carlos described. He must have thought lying would help, as the solution given to overcome the foreign installment is equal to the minimal change, gaining inner silence.
    Carlos was highly manipulative as Don Juan mentioned. Lying was not beyond him. Furthermore, there is no shadowy jumpy entity sitting on your head. If this foreign installment is overcome then lying wouldn’t have mattered, but for all others it is highly detrimental to believe that.

    • Yes, this matrix is the foreign installation. I don’t think Carlos lied, I think he was working with what he knew, prior to the massive amount of information that is available today on the internet. The challenge lies in putting into a context that everyone understands.

  2. What do we know, and how do we know it? More importantly, what do we think we know, and why do we thing we know it? In silence lies detachment, or rather the roots to non-attachment. This is clarity. From there we must find ways to move to action, without becoming tangled up in blue. neat trick if we can do it. This is to re-connect the circle the sacred hoop of the world, where each of us is always at the center. Our place is in the bionet of this planet for now. If we can only be here despite all the distractions we self create. Our spirits live in our bodies for life, in order to experience life and develop empathy with all life. What a great gift to us.

  3. It feels to me that this man-made matrix is not man made. How could man make such a non human “building” if he only were in his human form …let’s say.

  4. Its just that the more we know, the more we know we don’t know, which is the humility of a warrior, and the key to the great mystery of the universe. I think. maybe.

  5. Many seemingly implausible / impossible events were described in CC’s books. How much of it should we (as non-yet-enlightened laypeople) assimilate as truisms and how much as artistic licence? To automatically disregard events which are not conducive with the current paradigm / manmade matrix is to deny the variable and mysterious nature of reality and to fixate on an immovable / rational matrix, thus reinforcing it. But to lend earnest credence to fanciful and fanatical tales of magic is a fools errand and a subscription to gullibility.

    The most outlandish of all CC’s notions (or Don Juan’s revelations) was that of the flyers. Non-organic predatorial life forms described as dense squares of energy that shuffle on their corners to move around and are also capable of giant leaps into the air. As the story goes, these creatures came from the far reaches of the cosmos and managed to imprint or transfused their minds into the collective human species, engendering self-importance, ego and rationality thus ensuring maximum emotional energy which is their source of sustainance.

    To all learned seers in attendance, I put my sensibilities at your mercy… Should all this be taken literally? Do these creatures actually exist and have they imposed on our species what Carlos describes?

    Or is it possible that Carlos just a tremendously creative liar who perfected his storytelling in the latter stages of his colourful and controversial life?

    • Thanks for your comment. I somewhat agree with what you are saying and discuss it in my forthcoming book. It is unlikely that the flyer mind is extraterrestrial in origin. It is, however, a horrific energy that has indeed been imprinted in the minds of humanity and is unfortunately perpetuated. This energy – dark force – can be “seen” as Carlos and don Juan have described in the books, I have witnessed it on numerous occasions.

      • Thanks for your reply. Only after I posted I realised I had commented on an older article and wondered whether anyone would actually see it. I would be happy to purchase your forthcoming book! Will information about its release be made available here?

        Let’s say the “flyer’s mind” is not extraterrestrial in origin and is instead earth-derived. What of the idea that we are predated on by another intelligent lifeform that shares this earth. A lifeform capable of physically jumping / flying and sustaining itself on the by-product of our emotional energy expenditure? A lifeform that has influenced human evolution and the way we interpret reality? How much of the description in CC’s “The Active Side Of Infinity” should be taken literally? Is the “Flyer’s Mind” still an accurate description for the causative factor behind the manmade matrix?

        • I believe that all of that is possible, there is so much more to our world than we can possibly know. I believe that the Active Side of Infinity is very accurate, in particular:
          “We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos and took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners. The predator is our lord and master. It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to act independently, it demands that we don’t do so. They took over because we are food for them, and they squeeze us mercilessly because we are their sustenance. Just as we rear chickens in chicken coops the predators rear us in human coops. Therefore their food is always available to them.” ~ Don Juan, The Active Side of Infinity
          Yes, the flyer’s mind – foreign installation is a valid description. When we achieve inner silence and become impeccable with our energy, the foreign installation departs and we begin to see things as they really are without the impositions of the flyer’s mind.

  6. Thanks very much for your reply. Obviously trying to fully apprehend the above description with the rational mind is a fruitless endeavour. ‘The flyer itself (as actual living entity) and its influence on our species probably needs to be “seen” to be believed. I will trouble you with one last niggling question. Have you yourself (or anyone else reading) “seen” these creatures as per CC’s / DJ’s description in the Active Side Of Infinity.

    Lastly, I read the free excerpt from your book, Lorraine (Female Warrior or Lorraine?). Very evocative and intriguing. I will definitely buy it.

    • In answer to your question, yes, I have seen them on numerous occasions. They are indeed black shadows. I have seen them fly over us, slowly and calculating, as if stalking their next meal. On one occasion several of us were sitting around a campfire and we all saw one on its steady and silent approach. As it got close I said out loud “keep going, there is nothing here for you” and it soared just above our heads and continued on. One of the people with us had not believed that they existed but soon realized this reality. On a number of occasions while working deeply with assisting others in releasing inorganic beings these dark flyers are literally extracted and we are able to see them as they flee. More interesting is the fact that others who are involved with this process who are not seers per se have witnessed them as well and almost always respond by asking “what the **** was that?” They are real and they occupy many people or are on the hunt for “food”. This is the flyer – the foreign installation – the inorganic being, eating awareness and imposing its mind upon people. Animals – particularly cats – are extremely sensitive to them as well.

      I’m glad you liked the book excerpt and hope you enjoy the book as well.
      Keep dancing!
      Lorraine

  7. Thanks very much indeed for your candid response based on personal experience. My questions were extremely direct and you met them head on (no sugar coating), despite the subject matter being contentious. This is appreciated. The concept of the flyer is a horrific / mind-numbing one, the reality even more so. You words may very well give me the impetus to attempt to see the flyer for myself.
