Kind of like Vashta saying opening the Reiki causes this. Is there a connection?
Carlos Castaneda "A seperate Reality" page 24
I found this because I was trying to figure out if real people you've seen before could be allies. Look like the answer is no. But in Carlos' case 3 allies visited him hitchhiking wanting a lift in his car but he said no. They looked like real people. OF COURSE THE CRAZY STUFF HAPPENS TO HIM. [rolleyes]Then he explained that the allies could not take the lead or act upon anything directly; they could, however,
act upon man in an indirect way. Don Juan said that coming in contact with an ally was dangerous because the
ally was capable of bringing out the worst in a person. The apprenticeship was long and arduous, he said, because
one had to reduce to a minimum all that was unnecessary in one's life, in order to withstand the impact of such an
encounter. Don Juan said that his benefactor, when he first came in contact with an ally, was driven to burn
himself and was scarred as if a mountain lion had mauled him. In his own case, he said, an ally pushed him into a
pile of burning wood, and he burned himself a little on the knee and shoulder blade, but the scars disappeared in
time, when he became one with the ally.
