How about letting go while traveling?
Hello you beautiful people ❤️
Today I want to share my travel experience in Peru with you…
I will! But there is so much more to it as my 2,5 month have been such a “letting go”-experience.
What do I understand by letting go? I was letting go of feelings (mostly through shamanic work), letting go of thoughts and as well as letting go of things + goodbye of new friends after a very intense yoga month together.
The whole trip started with my 300 hrs teacher training for a month.
In that month it started already with letting go.

With 5 of them I planned to stay in Pisac for a few days. So just 14 goodbyes..
Pisac – San Pedro Ceremony
After I finished the yoga course, it was time for an appointment with a shaman for a so called “San Pedro Ceremony”.
I was nervous. Of course! It’s a poison. But also a healing plant! It should bring us back to nature. Our true nature….
„What does that mean?“ I questioned it. Everyone told me „You will love so much with this plant medicine, love everyone and nature“ and I said „Well then I don’t need it, because I love already a lot“.
But the question of doing it came around a few times. Thats why I did it in the end.
We hiked up a mountain to a beautiful lake. It was freezing cold but at the same time amazingly beautiful!
On the way up the shaman did the ceremony. We had to drink the drink… I was so nervous and I cried the moment the cup came to me.
—> I let go of fear…
On the further way up the medicine started to kick in. The nature was even more beautiful and brighter than before. As we arrived the lake, we all sat down and I started to cry. I cried for hours (it felt like a long time) and I told everyone I feel like a black sad little ball…. I just let the feeling be and cried. At some point I stopped and everything was in peace, I was in peace and it was beautiful and just is – So Ham (Sanskrit word for “I am”)
The next day I was exhausted but happy so I booked a Spa day for myself.
It was sauna, plant bath and a massage. Everything was energy work here too! The plant bath was made with intentions for me and I should set an intention too, before I go in.
While I was sitting in the bath, I was going through the last day and realized, something is gone…
Backgroundstory – I had a really bad lower back issue for about 8 month, where I couldn’t even tie my shoes alone… The Yoga course was also with a lot of “I can’t do that because of my back”…. Still hurting here and there and I needed to be careful all the time.
As I was sitting in the plant bath, I realized my pain is gone…
The next days I paid more attention, if I would feel something… nothing…
It was gone!
My theory is, the black little ball I cried out the day before, were all my feelings stuck in the lower back.
