On a personal note this has been a huge journey for me .... this year my body was ravaged by altitude sickness, my legs were heavy and burning and did not want to go another inch (not to mention each breath) and it took every ounce of strength and determination to get to the top of the mountain, but with the help of our amazing shamans/masters and absolute inner determination I made it to the top of the pass. I had to ask myself why was it this time that I suffered altitude sickness when on any previous visit to Peru it hadnt been a problem?
I believe it was for two main reasons
1) I was receiving my 2nd Initiation Ceremony from Maestro Alejandro and I knew from experience how much these initiations can change your life and I was scared/excited - not to mention the fact that this second initiation was to take place at night on top of a mountain in freezing cold temps!
2) I believe that this was also shown to me so that I can be more compassionate towards others suffering from the altitude on future trips - no matter what I learned we have an extraordinary
support team on this journey that can help you through literally anything
I also want to say that its ok to show vulnerability - Im always the strong one for others in my life but sometimes its ok to let others help you
So many gifts from this amazing journey with an amazing group of women
What an extraordinary life I lead! 🌈🌻💜🙏
