Breathe

Breathe… We hear this all the time. What does it mean? Breathing deliberately with intention helps us grow, be healthier and simply put overall better at life…

Breath literally saved my life. Having experienced physical and emotional abuse, abandonment and volatility as a child my nervous system were conditioned for pain and tension.

As an adult, some years ago when my life as a man spearheaded, separating from a relationship, being extremely unfaithful, losing friendships and my businesses, experiencing massive financial debt and when much of life was falling apart in all the ways (in order to be put together in a different way) breath found its way to me.

For the first time in my life, I had chosen to look at my actions, fears, traumas and pains. I was consciously choosing to heal it all and it felt overwhelming and intense. I felt suicidal and like death almost every day. I chose to go deep and do “all the things”. I recall where for hours daily I would be on my lounge room floor crying, screaming and in such tension and shaking as I was dealing with suppressed memories.

Breath saved me. It provided me an outlet to allow my nervous system, body and cells to release repressed pain and emotions that had been stagnant within me for so long. It gave me reprieve, intelligent hope and structure.

It helped me gain clarity, forgive myself and others and grow into the version of myself that carried intentional self-worth, not insecurity and unworthiness. Today, I breathe daily and I clear what doesn’t serve me. I won’t lie to you, it’s been a long road and at times “old stuff” bubbles to the surface…

However, I deal with it from a place of empowerment, confidence and humility. I turn around quicker as opposed to either internalizing with self-loathing and self-hate or vomiting the unprocessed emotions I loved ones.

I trust in the process of breath. It has probably been more powerful and insightful as an ally than plant medicines and hallucinogenics. It has opened my heart to shamanic practice and other modalities, whilst giving me strong foundations for the esoteric exploration of plant medicines also.

One is glad to be of service.

A Story Of Longevity & Respect

We become so fucking excited when we move in to a relationship. Our hormones go wild, any form of intelligence gets thrown out with the trash. We become primal, we go deep in to our physiology.

Of course there are times when there is a ‘soul recognition’, a ‘past-life’ connection and then it becomes more spiritual. As this phenomenological experience is rising, for many this form of deepened awareness in intimate relationship eludes us.

Sexual Polarity

There is so much to say to this. Knowing our core essence frees us from engaging in what my beloved calls “issue-based” relationships. Think of magnets. Magnets come together when the opposite charge is experienced/felt. Then there is a merging or union.

The Authentic Art Of Courting

When courting or in the pursuit of intimate relationship we place the grandest version of ourselves forward. We present what we perceive to be the what the ‘other’ desires, needs or wants…

The Sacred Art Of Creative Seduction

To seduce deeply we must know & importantly feel ourselves and what we desire. So many of us attempt to love in the world but are pulled away from our sexual desires.

We are so disconnected from our needs. So shamed for who we are, what we want and what we need in this human-spiritual form.
