Every desert Shaman, especially the Nazca desert. It can be opened and flying over her amazing lines, and walking through it, meeting the sunset and sunrise, which we did.
Dip and zavorozhennye.
Sunset we waited right at Aqueducto (mysterious large stone spirals down into the earth and connecting under a thick layer of soil with each other with stone passage, through which flows an underground river, built by the Nazca civilization and which are no less mystic than her pictures). Here we come another day to pass the final ritual of renewal and zakovorotny. It is, as always, was great. All participants underwent the ritual of “transition” in this underground river among aqueductal. Someone afraid, someone came to the brink of visions, many joined the memory of their birth and associated difficulties, everyone has their own, someone almost got stuck. Almost everyone at some critical moment arose the idea and the urge – do not go better but we found the strength to go forward to a new life. Interestingly, between some of the spirals a very small distance, just a few metres away, and to go under not so long. But, while there, under the ground, completely disabled sense of time and extent of space,as well as the personality and rational mind and it seems that going very long.

“Uh-uh, my friend, but you have a neurosis! Take you a cold shower and an hour ride on horseback – as a hand lift!”. Fun recipe, right? Especially about horses. But this is very real advice of highly respected physicians. And what is most interesting, indeed, as arm lift.

Yes, fools from horses grow wiser, but show me a tablet that have the same effect? This is not? So-and-so!
Of course, come the objections: it is one thing, saying, be purchased at your local pharmacy the suitcase of drugs from the listed diseases (except, again, the last one), and quite another to be dragged God knows where in the stables (and where is it stable, try to find) and pay a lot of money for their own shame (to put it mildly, we have lost over the last century the riding skills). The habit to beat yourself an hour all the tender places, but still, it’s possible to earn there, in the stable or the paddock, traumatic brain injury.
From the sounds of “meow!”
Okay,let’s assume that the horse is too strong alternative to the bag of drugs. But let’s still not going to rush to pharmacists. Look on the sides. See, the cat purrs in the sun? He hurt a paw, licking and purring. I think he hums it to yourself to have fun? Nothing of the sort! Continue reading
