However, his visit did not go as planned, as he did not anticipate the place’s high temperatures and the sun’s intense rays. On his social media, Shawn gave a glimpse of how badly his torso was sunburned. The 24-year-old singer posted a sleeveless photo showing the marks on his skin, including his shoulders.

In addition, Shawn also gave a peek into his visit to the archaeological site, one of the most important attractions in the country. The singer event took the opportunity to recharge a crystal - a quartz - with the energy of the place, a place also known as one of the best destinations to witness the spring equinox (between March 20 and 21).

According to beliefs, visiting this place purifies oneself and recharges energy, one of the ancient traditions of the civilizations that inhabited the site. Some fans in the area that recognized the singer captured him exploring Teotihuacan and photographed him meditating under the sun’s rays.

Shawn is a believer in meditation. In an interview with the radio show The Morning Mash Up (Sirius XM), he said that meditation changed his life and has helped him in his battle against anxiety.
