“In the Amazon, the jaguar considered the guardian and protector of the rain forest. She is the finest hunter, striking her prey quickly and altering a situation dramatically in an instant. She has no predators and lives free of fear. She is playful and curious about her world, and she plots out her hunt to ensure success. For these reasons, shamans associate the jaguar with the realm of ideas that allow us to explore, plan, and create a sudden shift in situations through changing our perspective. It’s the level at which we think and feel; here our brains also experience alpha waves, which are associated with meditation and relaxation, lucid dreaming, and the state of awareness we experience as we’re just falling asleep or awake. We figure out ways that we might make our visions come to fruition, and we adjust our plan to keep our own passion burning while we inspire others.” – Alberto Villoldo
Operating from jaguar helps us manifest our dreams, as we use our minds and emotions to carry out our intent. It’s our minds and emotions, and the unconscious actions that result from them, that keep us in a nightmare populated by the stock characters of victim, bully, and rescuer. The roles that we believed that we are ‘playing’ in the reality. “We are what we believe”
Humans are greatly influenced by the society moral values, the instructional thinking approach taught by the current educational system, and the upbringing of family. Our beliefs have great influential power on our perceptive to control the way we behave, and how we act or react to the world outside the body. Hence, we are responsible for getting ourselves stuck in difficult situations by overthinking and emotionally attached to someone, physical material(s) or an event. Trapping ourselves to serve as a victim while waiting for our ‘hero’ to rescue us from the bully.
