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.
