Everything is energy. The whole universe is energy. The social base of our perception should be the physical certainty that energy is all there is. A mighty effort should be made to guide us to perceive energy as energy. – Carlos Castaneda, The Art of Dreaming
We are energy but more than that, we are pure consciousness. We are responsible for the energetic frequencies that we choose to create and align with. We cannot experience anything unless we specifically choose to match a particular frequency. If we choose to align with higher frequencies, we will resonate within the pure state of universal mind. We will become invisible to lower frequencies due to a simple lack of resonance. Negative vibrations are not likely to affect us because they do not match the positive vibration that we have aligned with. We can observe a negative vibe but as long as we don’t give it any energy or power we will maintain our higher energy, frequency, and vibration and remain in the uninterrupted flow of awareness.
The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity. – Don Juan, Tales of Power
Everyone has the ability to make a choice. Let’s say that we can choose something productive, artistic, positive, or innovative. This sounds like a great way to utilize our precious life-force energy. To create something is an act of power. It is the harmony of thought and action, an opportunity for bringing the tonal and the nagual into balance. Everything creative comes from the tonal. It allows the position of the assemblage to be fluid and open to perceive things in new ways. The energy flows.
Since the beginning of its creation the Earth has had a pulse of life to which every living organism is connected. This pulse has surrounded and protected all living things with a natural frequency vibration. It is like a heartbeat that unifies everything in a diverse and interdependent web of creation.
Did you know that there is a pulse, an electromagnetic field surrounding the earth that beats at a frequency of 7.83 hertz? More interesting is that this frequency correlates with the average frequency of alpha brain waves in human beings. This is known as the Schumann Resonance.
The core of our being is the act of perceiving, and the magic of our being is the act of awareness. Perception and awareness can be a single, functional, inextricable unit with two domains. The first one is the attention of the tonal; that is to say, the capacity of average people to perceive and place their awareness on the ordinary world of everyday life: our first ring of power; our awesome but taken-for-granted ability to impart order to our perception of our daily world. ~ don Juan,The Second Ring of Power
I once read a quote that said “there is no truth, there is only perception” yet so many people hunger for the truth. They sit around and wait for a truth to be declared and when it is they either buy into it or reject it. Stopping the internal dialogue is the key to the sorcerers’ world, the mystery. The mystery, or the secret of the sorcerers’ explanation is that it deals with unfolding the wings of perception. The nagual by itself is of no use, it has to be tempered by the tonal. The sorcerers’ secret in using the nagual is in our perception.
