The Power of the Womb

The womb is the way female animals sense things and regulate their bodies. Through the womb, women can generate and store power in their doubles to build or destroy; or to become one with everything around them. ~ Nelida, The Sorcerer’s Crossing by Taisha Abelar

This is true. When we sit in the breath with intention and open our wombs to receive the life flow energy we become one with everything around us with so much fluidity we can no longer discern any separation. According to sorcerers, the womb makes it easy for women to enter into exotic areas of awareness. This makes perfect sense since the womb is a creative universe unto itself. In an interview, one of the witches said, “Sorcerers maintain that, due to the presence of the womb inside the body, women have the facility to displace the assemblage point to a new position.”

Destroying the Man-Made Matrix One Line at a Time

Every one of us human beings has two minds. One is totally ours, and it is like a faint voice that always brings us order, directness, purpose, the other mind is a foreign installation. It brings us conflict, self-assertion, doubts, hopelessness: it’s ourselves as the me-me center of the world. ~ Don Juan, The Active Side of Infinity

Not much has been said with regard to female warriors throughout the Castaneda books. Taisha Abelar and Florinda Donner wrote books in order to offer a female perspective of female sorcerers though the teachings that they had received from some of the elder women in don Juan’s party. Most of their writings were an attempt to guide women into becoming free from a male-dominated, patriarchal world which they believed held them captive and perpetuated an energy of being preyed upon and to exist in a role of subservience. Little was said about the power of the feminine energy that has the potential to dream a new dream here on earth, while systematically destroying the ancient lines that support and maintain this current paradigm, particularly by those women who are committed to the warrior’s path.

Freedom Through Recapitulation

Patiently she explained that the recapitulation is the act of calling back the energy we have already spent in past actions. To recapitulate entails recalling all of the people we have met, all of the places we have seen, and all the feelings we have had in our entire lives; starting from the present and going back to the earliest memories; then sweeping them clean, one by one, with the sweeping breath. ~ Taisha Abelar, The Sorcerer’s Crossing: A Woman’s Journey

Recapitulation is the ability to completely release the energies that keep you bound to specific incidences in your life oftentimes causing you to be trapped within a vicious cycle of replaying repetitive and draining emotional conflict. The continually rehashing of these patterns over and over again causes your life force energy to be constantly wasted as you replay these outmoded patterns of behavior.

Inorganic Beings

Shamans like don Juan Matus defined their quest as the quest of becoming, in the end, an inorganic being, meaning energy aware of itself, action as a cohesive unit, but without an organism. They called this aspect of their cognition total freedom, a state in which awareness exists, free from the impositions of socialization and syntax. ~ Carlos Castaneda, The Teachings of don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge

Don Miguel Ruiz calls them parasites, Susan Gregg calls them angels, fairies and gnomes, Ekhardt Tolle calls them “the pain body”, and others call them walk-ins, manifestations of dreams or fears, abstract forces or spirits.

They can be all of the above, except angels, fairies and gnomes which is merely an attempt at fixating the attention on something that cannot be labeled, only experienced. They reside in a realm, according to Castaneda, that exists outside of our own. They are only interested in energy.

The Love of a Sorcerer

A warrior’s love is the world. He embraces this enormous earth. The earth knows that he loves it and it bestows on him its care. That’s why his life is filled to the brim and his state, wherever he’ll be, will be plentiful. He roams on the paths of his love and, wherever he is, he is complete. ~ Don Juan, Tales of Power

In spite of the fact that sorcerers are intensely depthful and are so efficient with their energy they are often misunderstood. Impeccable warriors speak few words and those few words are often direct as a result of speaking from the place of intent, the place of pure knowing. Those words convey an essence which, to some, falls short of human emotion.

The following is an excerpt from a 1997 interview with Carol Tiggs, Taisha Abelar and Florinda Donner-Grau.

The continually rehashing of these patterns over and over again causes your life force energy to be constantly wasted as you replay these outmoded patterns of behavior.

We have tons of energy, we are pure energy. If we choose to recall and revisit past occurrences we are simply feeding them which ultimately makes those past occurrences stronger and more prevalent. Who wants to hold on to old energy? To do so weakens you and prevents you from being in the moment within the continual evolutionary act of creation or co-creation.
