- What is Nahual?
- What is Yok'Hah?
- The embodied Maya
From the anthropological perspective the
Nahual is a guardian spirit in the
form of an animal or a bird that watches over the
destiny of every human being. People can call their own
Nahual in a dream or a
Nahual could appear by itself in order
to help people in certain situations. In reality the
concept of Nahual does not have a
specific meaning; it rather describes a particular
mental, physical and emotional state of the power of
existence and also a region of the Universe. Everything
that exists is Nahual and
Nahual is in everything – in
the flowers, in the stars, in the water and in the
Self, in us.
Nahual also describes a
particular energetic state of consciousness which
contains deep human will. In this energetic state we
find what we call our personal power.
Nahual is an altered state of
consciousness. Nahual is beyond formal
logic and human behavioral patterns. It does not have a
form and at the same time can take any shape. It is
pure essence, it is wisdom, but above all it is
Wise men and women of ancient Mexico developed the
Path of the Nahual as a way of life.
This is the path of personal honesty on which we learn
to become one with our inner and outer universe.
Nahual means to be with yourself,
within yourself and in the center of yourself –
the center, which connects with the cosmos.
