My Journey to Lujan’s work is a spiral in and of itself. In 2013 my soul had a hunger as I was begging to open up to the nature of our universe and the oneness of myself. I went deep into a meditation, so far into my inner galaxy that when I emerged, I had a clarity, a knowing I had not yet experienced.

Moments later, I asked Spirit, “Show me my next steps,” and it was then that I came upon The Cosmic Giggle documentary. I remember hearing Lujan’s voice, and all of the recognition and feeling of being reunited with an old dear friend flooded my heart space. I knew his spirit and peacefully and loving listened to his words. I found other souls in that film that I also knew. It was like a family reunion of souls, and I cried with joy and love.

I became a student from a distance, reading Lujan’s books and placing them under my pillow at night to absorb their wisdom on subconscious and conscious levels. It was then I began to move my body differently, and I a yearning to learn Lo Ban Pai and work with Lujan came into the front of my mind, but I resisted it, I believed myself to be too flawed to learn from such a master of energy and consciousness.

Years went by, and I continued to have strange experiences. I was on my way to a silent retreat in the woods for three days. I was looking out the window of the car, and I saw a flash of Lujan and got a notification on my phone, Parallel Perception started following me on Instagram just then.

It was around this time I started questioning my sanity, I was barely speaking and walking the paths in the woods, repeating mantras and praying. One night I was walking the paths, and I heard Lujan’s voice gently guide me. Shortly after that, a ghostly figure of a shaman appeared to me on my path. He asked if I wanted his help.

I was frightened, and he asked me again, “Do you want my help?”

And reached out his hand, I extended mine, and he said, “I will arrange it,” and disappeared from the pathway.

I continued to hear guidance from Lujan and two other teachers during my retreat. A few weeks later, I met the shaman I had seen on the path in person. A few months later, I participated in one of Lujan’s online classes and felt inspired and scared that he would confirm that my guidance was lunacy.

I eventually decided to travel for a while and brought Lujan’s books with me. A great awakening had occurred inside me, and I wanted to keep my anchor with me while I learned how to fly in my own truth and space. Three years have passed since then. I have had many more experiences that have brought me to this point and place, and I am forever grateful to Lujan’s teachings and amazing heart. The desire to learn Lo Ban Pai has become greater than my fear, and I happily anticipate working with him when the time is in alignment.

Many thanks for this wonderful opportunity. It was perfect timing for me to take a look at my journey and send a thank you to Lujan and Mizpah, as well as have an opportunity to learn Lo Ban Pai and cultivate a deeper practice that involves actively being in my body while connecting on deeper levels of consciousness.
Thank You, Lujan,
