It's hocus-pocus. Carlos Castaneda was a fiction writer and these 'energies' that are supposed to affect our bodies and moods are nowhere to be found. There is no empirical evidence, none whatsoever, so, why should I believe or even entertain the idea? :-)

Carlos Castaneda was a controversial trickster figure. Especially after his death, there were reports about the negative side of his personality and his secretive, tight-knit, cult group of followers.

See article - "The Dark Legacy Of Carlos Castaneda" - salon.com - by Robert Marshall

Nevertheless, even if Castaneda got most of his ideas about his alleged encounters with a group of Toltec tradition wise people in Mexico from his research at the UCLA anthropology library, I still think many ideas in his books are intriguing and valuable.

Regarding Castaneda's discussions about "the assemblage point" - I think the concept of the assemblage point has some similarities to the subtle body energy theories of the chakra system and acupuncture medicine practices. The assemblage point may be related to the interrelationship between one's body awareness and sense-of-self in the outer (consensus reality) world and inner subjective world.

The assemblage point may be a sort of mandala center point of psycho-physical energy organized around a complex set of sensations, memories, habits, and beliefs about what constitutes inner-outer reality, and an individual's sense of relative limitation or freedom regarding what humanly possible to perceive and experience.

The following website lists numerous quotations from most of Carlos Castaneda's, and there are several references to to the assemblage point.
- "Notes On The Works Of Carlos Castaneda" - kodasplace.com - by Koda.

I think Castaneda's book - "The Art Of Dreaming" has interesting discussions about lucid dreaming and dreaming while awake.

Author, Robert Moss also writes about conscious dreaming - mossdreams.blogspot.com
