Though I am physically back in Los Angeles, I haven’t quite landed yet.
My unplanned escape to Mexico turned into one of the most powerful and memorable trips to date. Right up there with the holy city of Varanasi, India and my Himalayan adventures, for reasons you will soon discover as I post mementos from some of my Mayan explorations. My head and heart are still spinning with the sights, scents, sounds and flavors I encountered during my trip and I still am deeply haunted by the majestic beauty of Teotihuacan where I spent several magical days, struck with awe at the magnificence of “City of the Gods”.
There are truly no words that can adequately convey the overwhelming emotions and deep reverence I felt walking on such sacred grounds. And I’m afraid, it’s also quite impossible to attempt to capture photographically the energetic power and magnificence of these architectural wonders.
As I walked along the palatial ruins at Teotihuacan, I experienced the strangest déjà vu. What’s even stranger is that until a few weeks ago I was totally unaware that pyramids even existed only one hour’s drive from Mexico City! Although, I am passionate about sacred geometry I never really had planned on visiting archeological sites in general and pyramids in particular. Egypt has been in my travel plans for a while but without any particular sense of urgency.
Then about six months ago, I received a very unusual gift. I came into possession of several amazing crystals from the Great Pyramid of Giza. Shortly after that a series of uncanny synchronicities started popping up and everywhere I looked I saw pyramids. They were cropping up literally everywhere, including in the form of inexplicable pyramidal light formations that started appearing in my fashion photographs (you might have noticed them in pics 3, 8 and 12 from the top). Needless to say these “signs” were getting unusually insistent and quite impossible to ignore, until it felt simply weird not to book a flight and pay a visit… So I did. Not knowing quite what to expect…
Let me put it this way, I was not disappointed.
To make the experience even more special, I traveled luggage free. Meaning no clothes (figuratively speaking of course, only the bare minimum). And I treated myself to a healthy dose of digital detox: no computers, texting, emails, instagram, and the rest. I wanted to be 100% present to the experience. Everything flowed heavenly to the exception of my unexpected canine escort! I was planning on traveling solo but this funny team of “pyramid dogs” (pic eleventh from the last) decided otherwise and were following my every moves day after day as I explored the Mayan Ciudadela.
To be continued.

Ndoema, thanks for sharing the spectacular photos from your amazing adventure. You’re such an artist!
Thanks so much, Sharon! It is truly a magical place…
How Divine! I love hearing of the magic in each other’s lives! I had a message come through a couple years ago about the Pyramids “revealing themselves” soon! Last year was the pivotal time for the Divine Feminine & this year is about BEing in our Experience! Many Blessings to you on your amazing journeys! Love & Light, Lana
Oh Wow! How amazing! Thanks so much for sharing. Much love xo
I like the photo with the sun behind you. Awesome!!
Thank u 😉
It’s amazing how they built the structures thousands of years ago. It’s definitely in my bucket list of travels 🙂
Hope the weather wasn’t so hot! Did you go shopping? Of course you did! Let’s see those!
The weather was hot during the day but rather cool at night. And no, I wasn’t into shopping mode…
I like the photos where you look like you’re at the top of the world! OMG no elevators! Lazy me. It probably would have taken me all day to walk up. Did you go to other places in Mexico? Waiting for more 🙂
Nope, no elevators 😉 248 stone steps! It’s a formidable workout (the best kind)!
These are stuff that I only read in books! Marvelous!
These are really wonderful shots Ndoema! It’s like I was there meself. Thanks for sharing!
No phone? No wifi? No internet? Aaaaaaaak! I admire you Ndoema! I probably wont last a day without getting withdrawal symptoms lol. But yes, I guess you do have a point. We need to get away from it all once in a while and get in touch with ourselves.
I agree, with you, travelling light is always a great idea. Anyway, you can always shop there ^_^
lol the dogs kept you company! I’m fascinated with the pyramids too! I love the photo you took with the wooden ladder, overlooking the view. Was that at the top of the pyramid? The place is absolutely breath-taking!
Yes, that’s the very top of the pyramid the way it stands now, but it is believed that it originally had an altar.
The place looks amaaaaaazing! Did you get to ride on the hot air balloons? I bet the view would’ve been wonderful.
I almost did but I was glued to the pyramids 😉 Maybe next time.
It looks like you had so much fun! I would love to come with you in one of your trips!
Oh wow finally! I’ve never been to Mexico. Looking forward to more 🙂
