6 More Things Learned in Mexico

My trip to Mexico yields new information each day, and what I really got out of it surfaces and surprises me.

  • Vaulted ceilings are good for the soul. The Sanctuary where I provide Reiki treatments has the same inspiring architecture.
  • The body is mere skin. I was the only African American woman I saw in Mexico City over nine days. Although I resonate with people, I had to remind myself why they were looking at me as if I was different from them.

  • High altitudes are good for the ears. My right ear had diminished hearing, but my eardrum popped on the second day of the trip. I wondered why music sounded so loud and people were yelling.
  • Corn is everything, and tortillas are its most digestible form. Human beings are made of it, say the Mayans. I’ve always loved corn and also use it as a facial scrub and mask (1 TBSP cornmeal, 1-2 drops of sandalwood or frankincense, 1 TBSP water; add more meal for mask–rinse after 5-10 mins).
  • Left and right brain hemispheres can harmonize, given a supportive environment. My left hand now feels as strong and capable as my right. The energy is even stronger; my left hand is no longer a true “non-dominant” hand.

  • The Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera love story proves opposites not only attract but contain unseen energetic likenesses that magnetize. As a student of art and Left movements, their story always fascinated me.  When I visited the museum created from their home, I got a closer look at passionate healer-artist Kahlo and the love that persisted, despite serious challenges– between her and famous muralist Diego Rivera.
