Eternal love is the breath of life

My dear readers, I have written often about the self healing techniques, rituals and ceremonies I practice in order to stay connected to my authentic self and to further integrate my soul into my being. Yesterday I took part in another breathquest ceremony that my dear friend Chrissy-Marie hosts via her Voyagers membership group that can be accessed here https://theartofaliveness.mykajabi.com/ Conscious breathing is so beneficial to welcoming in more life force energy which is what brings overall well-being to our body, mind and spirit. Directing such energy helps rid the body of stress and trauma, allowing for further expansion. The more room one can create internally, the more freedom one feels. It’s invigorating my dear ones!

I’ve been taking part in these monthly ceremonies for over ten months. I can firmly attest to the abundance of overall harmony I feel once the release of stagnant energy takes place where trauma has been locked in my body. The areas that are most impacted are the autonomic nervous system (ANS) which is connected to physical processes such as digestion, respiration, heart rate, immune function, and peristalsis. Also the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) which is our fight-or-flight response. For someone like me with CPTSD, this has benefited me most in regulating this response so that I can be more present while helping me focus and meditate much easier.

This information is quoted in an article I read to research conscious breathing and its benefits, and can be found at https://kripalu.org/resources/benefits-conscious-breathing-body-and-mind

“The other branch of the system is the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS), often called the β€œrest and digest” or β€œcalm and connect” system, which allows us to recoup from the stressors of life. If you find yourself breathing slowly and deeply, feeling a sense of calm and peacefulness, your PNS is activated, enhancing digestion, increasing blood flow to the GI track, lowering the heart rate, and enhancing sexual arousal. This system also activates certain parts of the brain, dampening fear-response regions and increasing the reflective, responsive regions. The result? More reflective, conscious behavior and action; an increased feeling of calm; and greater mental flexibility and creativity amid life’s challenges”.

The work I practice as a shaman requires me to read energy on other dimensions and has me dance with irrationality. I’m a storyteller for the soul, therefore it’s important for my being to be as healthy, neutral and well attuned as possible. These breathing techniques have helped shift my own consciousness and behavior in innumerable and priceless ways. I’ve begun teaching the art of shamanism while maintaining a steady client base and by God’s grace I have become quite busy. This week I really needed this breath course to reconnect with my soul, breathe and rejuvenate myself. I took a much needed day off yesterday and enjoyed restful sleep. Being still, feeling calmness and tremendous inner peace is a reward for all the hard work and dedication I give to this craft, my way of life as I walk the shamanic path.

For it is in breathing that we can let go, allowing more truth and love into our being. These little deaths create new beginnings. In the moments one feels anxious and wants to hold (breath) is the exact moment our body desires us to release and breathe. When we feel the urgency to speed up is actually the time we need to slow down. Breathing deep and often, consciously makes all of these actions flow more easily and helps us make more healthful decisions.

These two poems embody how my soul feels. Connecting to etetnal love, which supports all life in the Universe and how vital it is to feel the breath of life. The amount of aliveness one feels is directly related to one’s soul’s health. Healing the soul, connecting all parts of self spreads love throughout our human operating system. This allows us to be as whole as possible and as joyful, peaceful and loving as we want. I highly recommend you try it my dear ones! Breath is life!

Breath is freedom
Love supports all life

  1. Love it! I am in a group on Kajabi that has really helped me. Every morning in January we gathered to do Wim Hof breathing together. It has been so wonderful that I am going to continue. I feel so spacious after this practice.

  3. Loved it! Such a good post! Yes breathing techniques always plays a vital role in releasing stress.. and me who comes from India can say this as in our yoga and pranayama, pranayama is all about various breathing techniques and motions of breathing through nose and mouth which works wonder in terms of growing concentration and releasing stress. It helps a lot and I’m an example of it as we were taught it in school and it works wonder!
    Keep going dear! Stay healthy ❣️

  4. Love this. Zen meditation is always deeply rooted in conscious breathing. Coming to the breath and body means I come back to the proximity of the moments I exist. A high impact experience that allows me to leave the stream of thought and enter what some may call the real world existing directly within the sense frame. Then there’s the drift back into my own stream of thought. How beautiful. My training in shamanism started in the same place, awareness of the breathing cycle. I so enjoy your posts! Be well my friend.

  5. I love this!!! I’m going to have to practice this…as you’ve already mentioned. πŸ˜‰ “These little deaths create new beginnings.” So very true! I do know that I tend to hold my breath a lot especially as I face things that aren’t always pleasant. The breath really is important, something we often forget so thank you so very much for the reminder!! Sending you so much love!! πŸ’—

    1. Absolutely, it’s simple and free. The 1st element we commune with upon entering this world is air. It’s beenquite windy here in SoFlo which sparked the energy for this post along with my amazingly talented sister Chrissy-Marie’s healing medicine. Her courses are so awesome. Love to you Tiffany ❀
