When I first started working with peoples bodies energetically, I began to notice one of the biggest issues around a persons aliveness and bliss, was the fact that most of us are barely even breathing...
I began seeing how the average person had incredible difficulty around breathing deeply and freely, which is essential to being able to stay in the body and feel your own essence/truth - Especially in times of discomfort and overwhelm, where we have been fed the mantra; “feeling our feelings is weak and bad - avoid them”.
From this perspective we assume that being in our natural deep-feeling body is not safe, and our response is to find the quickest way to become numb and disassociated from it…so we hold our breath & breathe shallowly. That does the trick!
Enter a wide array of emotional and physical health issues.
Breathing is at the core of every single thing we do in our lives. Without it, we die. Therefore, the quality and depth of our breath, has a direct correlation with the quality and depth of our life.
If your breathing is misaligned, everything you do is being done from a place of core misalignment.
If the body is tight and restricted - your life will be tight and restricted.
In daily life, it seems most people take the least amount of breathes possible, in order to barely remain alive, without having to feel anything - Spending large portions of the day holding their breath unconsciously.
Of course you are delirious, fearful and fatigued, you are suffocating to death.
In the work I do, I have seen so many peoples lives totally change course after their system opens back up and the blockages are released. This is due to the fact that our internal is responsible for the manifestation of our external.
In daily moment to moment life, It’s so common for a person to be holding mass amounts of tension and unconscious bracing in their neck, Jaw, shoulders, behind the eyes(from staring into screens) and diaphragm - right down into the pelvis. This causes great obstruction in the body, cutting the breath off and limiting its free flow - This cuts receptivity off, and keeps us locked in our head. The body continues to lose more and more of its energetic charge.
Without breath - there is no circulation, which means everything pools and stagnates both physically and energetically.
Its so deeply important that each one of us priorities getting back into the body, and learning how to nourish it. The first step in correcting a misalignment, is to see and feel the misalignment.
I invite you to figure out exactly how to put your hands on your self, in order to cause a deep release and surrender of your fascial and muscular system. It doesn’t take a university degree or a bunch of bodywork books. It simply takes some time, patience, dedication to self, and compassion towards your own vessel. It will teach tremendous self-love.
How are you going be in this body for your whole life and not come to know everything about it?
To ignore & distrust our own body, so deeply, is a form of abuse. Mostly everything which is being sold & pushed upon you, is an attempt to keep you separated from your bodys sovereignty & intelligence - in order to keep you controlled and foolish.
It’s vital you learn how to touch yourself and breath into all of your tension, pain and sadness, in ways which will restore openness and receptivity in your beingness. And please, be patient.
To clarify, when I speak of proper breathing, I am in NO way referring to practice fads such as Whim Hoff Breathing or the sudden rise in all things “Breathwork”. These excessive yang techniques are only being received right now, as they are being sold to an excessive yang society. Its comfortable for the collective. Its highly stimulating and often times forceful and aggressive. I have seen many the nervous system crushed from this disconnected rampage of hyperventilation.
What we require more than ever right now, is the yin approach; to breathing, to self, to touch, to movement, to purpose, to life!
Yin is the intuitive intelligence, the restorative lubrictation, the nectar of Godhood - present in us all. Its the enveloping dollops of dense sensation coursing through our channels which soothe our collective woes, and revitalize our bodies. Yin is the honey.
But to be receptive to this powerfully transformative force - society is required to feel again; everything. To look at themselves and examine their ways of moving through life. Allowing(not forcing) our unprocessed traumas to roll up and greet us in its own vivacious & seemingly identity crushing way.
But to allow, we must first be present and in attendance internally.
Our yang culture chases and goes searching for everything.
The yin, when it comes to understand its own power and influence, sits back, feels and waits - for everything which must be seen and acknowledged for the betterment of this life…to arrive. And she arrives. She always arrives.
For our society to thrive, we are required to prioritize what’s actually important; with the state of humanity being in the forefront of that vision - and you will never understand humanity, without first locating it deep within your own connection to your own humanness - through embodiment.
To develop in a way where we can call back our Ojas, our restorative juices, our ability to understand calmness and compassion viscerally - we must learn patience collectively, in a time where the average human can no longer sit still, retain focus, think for themselves, or face difficult emotions - without picking up a digital distraction.
We require slow, steady, reverent commitment to showing up, day after day in service - without behaving like spoilt children who feel entitled to “having it all” right now; without putting any of the necessary work in. Our new-age brattiness must dissolve if we are to mature beyond the level of hyenas with smartphones.
In my own life, my past stubbornness would have me repeatedly drown in my early processes of development. Once I had moved through my inability to weather my own traumatic storm consciously, I realized much of the physical hurt, pain & illness I was carrying, needed to be engaged with it in a whole new way.
As an example; I had a tight spot which was holding trauma under my right rib for most of my life. It would appear as physical muscular pain, nausea, anger, poor digestion, and would create trouble in every moment of my life.
It took me the best part of two and a half years of having my hands and consciousness all over that part of my body on a moment to moment basis, daily - for it to finally let go and heal.
I had oceans of trauma held in a 3 inch by 3 inch spot, causing all of these health and vitality problems, because of the amount of avoidance and ignorance issued to this area of my being. It took me almost 3 years for it to fully correct itself.
The deepest lesson I learned from this unrelenting devotion to this little area, was how much information and vastness is present in the tiniest parts of our being, and how the lack of love for our bodies essentially kills us slowly, as a form of unconscious suicide. I also discovered that I could find and be with every part of my body, inside of that one little spot.
None of this was found through searching. It was discovered through listening, without expectation.
The other lesson It taught me, was how to touch myself in an impactful way, in a way of restoring receptivity and life force on a cellular level. I used to be very heavy handed and disconnected in my touch(like most people), trying to force things to happen. And not just with my own body, but with woman body also. Discovering the immense power in my gentleness, shifted my whole approach to life, and something I am eternally grateful for.
Another gift I received from this tiny sore spot, was found through developing the presence and consciousness required to drop into the skin, then the fascia, the muscle, the tendons, the energy, the cells.
The first experience I had of feeling the existence of my cellular system viscerally, is an experience I will never forget. It was like an energetic orchestra playing a type of music I had never heard, but was so familiar with. It was an experiential clarification that everything is one. It is one thing to think all is one - its a totally different experience to feel it.
This is why I am so passionate about trying to jolt people awake in as many ways as possible. You are so powerful - but you can never know that with your head, or with your mindset. Because how our mind relates to power is very different to how our being brings it fourth.
There is no difference between the “spiritual” mind, and the “normal” mind. Its an illusion. A trick. They are both mind, drunk on their own illusionary knowledge.
The trend of the “spiritual” person, is nothing more than a jukebox of catchphrases and feathers. Void of practicality.
Just because someone knows all these “spiritual” words - has nothing to do with their level of wisdom and understanding. You can read every self-development book on the market, and take every chakra workshop you can find, but until you have learned to hold yourself without dropping out - little practical knowledge has been attained.
Embody, in the face of everything, and watch a wisdom imbibe you. But its important to remember its never yours. Wisdom is never ours. Its gifted to us, if we can quieten down enough to hear it.
…and a deep, unencumbered free-flowing breath - is a powerful tool in knowing thy self. In feeling thyself. In expressing thy self.
In conclusion, clean up your temple.
Once you experience surrender and healing underneath the loving embrace of your own touch, of your own breath, you embody your Godliness - a channel for source.
Remember, our hands have the ability to heal absolutely EVERYTHING going on within our body. The only factor, is whether or not you have stayed conscious long enough in order to evoke a shift.
