In order for the shaman to combat whatever evil forces may be maligning him, or those who rely on the shaman for protection, it is necessary for the shaman to transform himself and crossover to the spirit realm.
The jaguar is often chosen as a nagual because of its strength, for it is necessary that the shaman dominate the spirits, in the same way as a predator dominates its prey.
The jaguar is said to possess the transient ability of moving between worlds because of its comfort in the trees and the water, their ability to hunt as well in the nighttime as in the daytime, and their habit of sleeping in caves, places often associated with the deceased ancestors.
The concept of the transformation of the shaman is well documented in Mesoamerica and South America, and is demonstrated through the prominence of the runauturuncu, and other sculpture illustrating jaguar transformation
Throughout South America the feline is believed to be the alter ego of the shaman.

(n) The ecstatic flight of the shaman;
The taking of one’s consciousness and luminous body into non-ordinary reality, into the unknown, the nagual.
This is often done to acquire information, to effect distance healing, or for pleasure.
The journey may include spiritual shapeshifting. Becoming an animal is common.
The spirit separates itself from the body to make flights of vision and materializes in other beings, in a saint, a mountain, an ancient shrine, and so on.
In a series of manifestations in agreement with the charm or spell or place of the task or the symbology of which one is thinking: a lion, tiger, horse, bird, mountain, lagoon, stream, saint, herb, possibly even a demon.
This highly subjective inner experience does not blot out objective conscious perception; all of the five physical senses and a “vision” separated, more remote in the sense that one can look at things that go far beyond the ordinary or that have happened in the past or can happen in the future.
Visionary, ecstatic magical flight is the mark of the true shaman of all times and places.
The shamanic journey is in three phases:
- The shaman sets forth from the realm of the mundane;
- he then journeys to the supernatural and returns.
- Always the passage involves these three destinations or locations . . .
- The shaman travels to the edge of the social order each time he undertakes these journeys.
- He enters non-form, the underlying chaos of the unconceptualized domain which has not yet been made a part of the cosmos by the cultural activity of naming and defining.
- With each crossing over, he gains power, as do all persons who travel to the edges of order, for . . . such contacts with the boundaries of conceptualization are sources of power as well as danger.
- Shamans are liminal people, at the thresholds of form, forever betwixt and between
