Meaning of "Nagual"

A Nagual, according to Aztec mythology, was a totemic spirit; every god and every human being had a Nagual, like Huitzilopochtli / hummingbirds and Quetzalcoatl / feathered serpent. Nagual is also a term used in the books of Carlos Castaneda, to describe a person who is able to guide others towards new areas of perception. The Nagual is the benefactor of apprentices, a guide to total freedom. The Nagual (according to Castaneda) is opposed to the Tonal, understood as anything that can be explicated and understood by reason, the Nagual is a reality that transcends the purely intellectual understanding and which can only be witnessed, it is all that is outside the domain of the word, of the concept, it's the inexplicable Spirit of which you can only make direct experience. From "The Eagle's Gift" by Carlos Castaneda: "Human beings have two sides. The right side (Tonal) embraces all that the intellect is able to conceive. The left (Nagual) is the domain of the unspeakable, a domain impossible to put into words. the left side is perhaps understood, if you understand what occurs, with the totality of the body; hence its resistance to conceptualization."
