Clearing the Air

Clearing the Air

We all get stuffed up. Congested. Clogged. Held captive by the unexpressed desires and needs of our souls longing. We use our ego to strive for external social ideals, when deep inside we want more. We crave. We want. We yearn for connection. We get bogged down by ideas of what is right and wrong, and constantly measure ourselves against an invisible barometer of arbitrary acceptance.

This can show up in our relationships and in our communication with others. It can show up in our bodies, physical manifestation of fogginess in the head, nose, throat area. We can feel weighed down, uncertain and unclear, in both thought and action. We are in a season of transition, where parts of ourselves are dying off, and we have a chance to go into hibernation with specifics intentions for transformation.

Now is a perfect time of year to begin to consciously clear the air of your own experience.

What do you want to breathe new life into?
What is ready to be cleared and released from this past year?

Let us ferociously move into a new version of ourselves as we enter into the darkness of incubation. It is a good time to express what needs to be said. Share the very thing you think you could never let anyone know. I did this the other day, and my heart exploded open into joyous wonder of delightful vulnerability.

It is a powerful thing to open ourselves to the process of radical self acceptance. To lean into the place we have been led to believe is unacceptable. By doing this, we rewire ourselves, and actively participate in the self-examination process and re-coding of ourselves into a new way of being in the world. A way of showing up that is in full alignment with our soul’s calling.

What if you accepted yourself today and did the thing you think is not allowed?

What would that look like? What would that feel like?

Who would you be if you did something you are scared of today? Share with me!

Today’s breath practice will support you through a deeper self-inquiry by activating the glandular system and expanding the lungs. The vagus nerve is stimulated, and the ears, nose, throat and entire upper half will be stimulated. Do this practice and then spend a few minutes writing and reflecting on today’s questions. Are you willing to push your edges with me? Stretch yourself. Have an experience with yourself today! Let me know how it goes!

Going Numb

Going Numb

One of the ways we unconsciously manage pain and fear in our lives is by going numb. We turn off our feeling mechanisms and just start to numb out. We numb out noises, scents, memories, and moment by moment experiences where we feel less of everyone and everything! We may go through the motions, smile when necessary, but we feel less and less of each motion.

This is very much an unconscious process and a self-preserving body response to (perceived) everyday life threats to our well being. The way we handle the exorbitant amounts of pain and fear that are permeating our frequency waves, is to shut off our sensory system, so as to not feel it. We notice less. We pay less attention.

However, we still have to deal with the impact in aging and other health related effects. Most of us haven’t been taught how to strengthen these systems within us. When we do certain breath exercises, we can awaken our sensory system and begin to eliminate, rather than numb out to the weighted impact of external environmental and societal forces.

Today’s practice is a simple four part breath that will reduce stress instantly and eliminate overwhelm. When done longer than five minutes, it will support the awakening of the sensory system, so that you can begin to feel your electrical power.
