070 – Toltec Shamanism, Researching the Paranormal and Time Travel with Marcus Leader
Have you ever been interested in the paranormal, ghosts or ESP? Have you ever considered that there’s something powerful and mysterious just beyond our perception? Have you wondered if there are individuals who can tap into that power? I used to wish that I could meet someone like that who can teach me the secrets of what is really possible. In The Hollow Tube, we know that when we ask we receive. We must ask intelligently for exactly what we want.
When I was a little kid, my grandmother would say everyone has a little ESP. You just need to practice. I believed her, and I wanted to know more. I scoured the stacks of books at Scottsdale library reading anything I could find on paranormal phenomena, non-ordinary reality, spirituality, and life after death. When I was a teenager, I discovered The Teachings of Don Juan by Carlos Castaneda.
I felt a connection with this book, because almost all of the events described took place practically in my backyard of Sonora, Mexico. I devoured every one of his books and hoped to meet a teacher like Don Juan. Critics said, “he made it up.” There was no Don Juan. I was so disappointed when I found this out. I forgot all about Carlos Castaneda. I put away all that crazy stuff. As it turns out, he was real and some of his descendants even live here in Arizona.
My guest today was an apprentice for Carlos. For eight years, Carlos taught Marcus Leader the secrets of the Toltec shamanic path. Marcus is a researcher, author, and the host of The Shaman’s Brew Podcast. He is in the process of publishing a series of books on shamanic teaching. He is also a scientific researcher of the paranormal with the goal of proving the phenomena through science. Some of the tools he has created have been used on shows like Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures. It’s an honor and a privilege to have him on the show today.

[01:15:52] We perceive time as a linear event, but everything happens at the same time.
[01:20:20] The biggest change that has happened to Marcus, since he met Carlos was his perception of the world has changed. He doesn’t have any enemies, because he’s learned how to interact with people. His energy field is in alignment and resonates with the people he is around.
[01:23:08] Seeing the world the way it really is and not wasting energy is beneficial. The more personal energy you can build up, the healthier you will be.
[01:24:28] Once you learn how to use this energy, you can communicate with the world around you.
