I have just begun to delve into the teachings of Lujan Matus, and already I feel called to learn Lo Ban Pai. I have learned so much about traveling inside myself and cleaning out the clutter that has been keeping me in my head and out of my heart. I have learned to take a step back from situations and try not to engage with emotion. I had once mastered the art of deflecting drama but had let myself get swept back into that world briefly. Ironically, the entire situation hurt my heart. I was fine, but my heart hurt so much; this was the time I started to explore Lujan’s books.

Understanding hit me like a brick wall. I acted to remove myself from the trap I had wandered into. The most beautiful thing happened when I did that; peace. Everything played out and ended. The situation dissolved as if it had never happened.

As a mom with young children, I want to give these tools to them by modeling them. I want to learn to step back more and let them grow as they will with a strong guide to come to when they need to. I want to not be in a constant state of expectation, trying to live up to society’s expectations of how to raise my children or expecting my children to grow and act how I/society expects them to.

I want to learn to apply the same mindset that I had when I escaped the drama to my everyday life with the kids. And I have, in some small ways… but fear of failing them and fear of them being caught in the same thing I was, always brings me back to step one. The same old thing still has its claws in me, and I know that. I see it now for what it is thanks to the teachings in the books, but I want to move past it. I want to remove every trace of it from myself so that my children can see what is possible when you move outside of the norm.

I want my own inner silence, and for the most part I’ve noticed that that is what I have now. But when the voice in my head pops back in I still get consumed by it. I have begun a yoga practice again to help find silence through movement and breath. It has been helping so much, but I feel there is more to be done, more avenues to explore, more modalities and movements to apply.

During my walks home from work, I used to have immense conversations with myself about what had happened that day, how I was feeling, what there was to deal with at home and whatever else… now I find it is the perfect time to practice using only 2% of my gaze outwards, listening to what I can’t hear and feeling what I can’t touch.

It’s been a glorious change, almost a full reset between work and home. I am so grateful for the tools I have gained so far, and can’t wait to learn more. There is still so much work to be done, but there has also been so much progress made. I feel that getting the extra facilitation that comes with being in contact with a Nagual themselves may be what I need to continue forward, that little nudge to break through the cloak that I’ve been pushing back slowly.

Thank you,
