There are many proposals for your spiritual retreats, but nevertheless, there are some unmissable ceremonies and experiences during your time in this magical country that you should not forget.
To do this, we recommend the following activities. You will easily find them in the areas that we have recommended and by asking locals, you will be able to find the best options, the most authentic and far from the massive spiritual tourism that comes from the US and other places in Europe, where basically, there is a bit of theater and Anyone wears the label of “shaman” or “healer.”
As lovers of wellness and health tourism Matses, we advise you not to miss a bit of spiritual Mexico and venture to try these experiences:
A practice that has been carried out since ancient times and consists of a hot steam bath inside a typical igloo-shaped construction.
It is carried out by shamans who have a deep connection with Mother Nature and understand that fire is the element of transmutation and healing.
Imagine, sitting in a bathing suit inside a small igloo, while you hear songs raised to the beat of a drum and feel the sweat literally falling in streams all over your body.
It is without a doubt something transformative on a spiritual level, but also a very powerful physical cleansing.
The shaman will welcome the granny stones, which are VERY HOT, and will use water with aromatic herbs to keep the interior climate of the building humid.
It is time to release everything that no longer resonates in your life and be reborn once you leave the temazcal, having improved your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
The preparation of this sacred seed is no small feat.
It takes time and requires knowledge of the preparation, always using the best organic cocoas and spices to season it.
Once prepared, you sing, listen to medicinal music, and in a meditative atmosphere, dance while taking this ceremonial cocoa very consciously, sip by sip.
There are also songs, dances and inner connection, a lot of connection. In addition, this delicious drink provides a lot of energy and in the moment you feel relieved and light, capable of taking on the world and empowered for everything that comes.
Cenotes and Aluxes
A spiritual trip to Mexico will not be complete if you do not visit cenotes and hear legends that the Aluxes lived there.
These creatures are guardians of these sacred places and often, the locals have a lot to tell about them, stories that will leave you fascinated.
There are open, semi-open cenotes and others that are completely in a cave and you will even have to enter it through passages, with a harness or go many kilometers into the jungle to discover them.
The magic of these places has nothing to compare with, so any spiritual trip to Mexico must have this plan.
In general, those that are open tend to have more traffic and are focused on fun, with zip lines, paddle surf boards, etc.
However, semi-open or closed cenotes have a more mystical and profound atmosphere, they are usually emptier and quieter.
Ideal for going to meditate and trying to contact the presence of these small guardian beings that are the Aluxes.
Mexico is a place where songs and music have come from the hand of wisdom that was transmitted in this way, from mouth to ear.
Their cultures did not leave much literary trace, so the majority of knowledge was communicated orally.
Sound is vibration and as such, it affects our cells and makes us more receptive to personal transformation.
A sound bath or Sound Healing can envelop you in quartz bowls or other instruments, medicine and high frequency voices.
Don’t miss the opportunity to go relax in one and let yourself go to see where you fly!
Medicine music concerts
As you may well be guessing, Mexico is very spiritual and brings a lot of records of people who have dedicated their entire lives to the study of mystery, healing and everything transcendental.
For this reason, there are also many medical musicians sharing their messages as they have always done, through the voice and the typical musical instruments of Mexico.
How about being surprised by one of these concerts? Your spiritual journey to Mexico will take a 180 degree turn after listening to the medicine artists sharing.
The deep lyrics will make you connect with Mother Nature and make you know that you are part of the whole.
