Breathwork pearls of wisdom

Breathwork pearls of wisdom and gut health- An irritable bowel is one which is not flowing smoothly.
There’s a stop start issue here.

A difficulty with processing and digesting a situation.

Our digestive systems are super sensitive. The gut reaction is our sixth sense. Related to intuition and the heart.

Ignoring that gut reaction never goes well, but in childhood so many of us learn to do just that.

Unconditional love and acceptance is what we desire most and as children we look to our parents or significant adults for this. However when we receive criticism or condemnation for displaying or releasing our feelings we then adapt and learn to
hold and control our emotions.
To ‘stuff’ them down.

Fear, anger, frustration and boundaries remain unprocessed. They become internalised and ‘stuck’ .

The digestive system is a physical mirror for our emotional digestion.

IBS reflects this internal battle of being
In control/ out of control.
Stable/ unstable.
Unemotional/ emotional.

Healing comes from learning to re parent yourself.

Bringing self acceptance back into your thoughts rejecting the critical voice and replacing it with an allowing loving voice.

You are doing the best you can.
It’s ok to feel frightened/ angry/ sad.
What is it that you are trying to control?
What would happen if you let go?

Relearning how to FEEL and express the emotions you are experiencing is a big part of the journey here.

Writing or journalling about the unfiltered truth of how you feel is one way of reconnecting to your heart.

Emotions can feel strong and scary when you are used to holding them inside. Approach this work with softness and compassion for your SELF.

You deserve to be here, SEEN and HEARD for EVERYTHING that you are.

the heart pearls of wisdom

We tend to think of the heart at the front of our chest, but of course the heart’s influence extends right through the centre of the body. 

 

Pain, aching or changes in rhythm we feel at the front of the heartspace are often associated with the present moment. Anxiety or fear. 

 

Pain or aching at the back of the body might relate to the past. 

 

Grief. Shame or guilt are the main emotions that come up here. 

 

Feelings we don’t want to feel. 

Feelings we have tried to push behind us and yet they remain unresolved. 

Feelings we may have decided that we have to carry permanently on our back because there will never be resolution. 

 

If this resonates for you then consider what you might be carrying. 

How would it feel to let go? 

Maybe you feel you deserve to carry them? 

Maybe you feel that to resolve that burden would make you feel guilty? 

(For example the guilt of feeling happy when you ‘should’ be grieving)

 

Or maybe you believe that wholeness will never be yours to hold again. 

 

Consider these perceptions carefully as they hold so much self judgement and negativity. 

 

Life wants to live and you will be guided towards living.

The heart wishes for joy and connection and you will be guided towards others. 

 

The trauma of guilt, shame and grief is that we restrict and constrict our lives. 

 

If your heart feels closed consider the situation that you wanted to disconnect from and the truth of your feelings. 

 

What would your heart say? 

 

Trust 

You had no choice

Live and be free

 

Breathe into your heartspace and into your back. 

Can you give the pain space and a voice? 

Can you allow yourself to feel the pain if only for a moment.. 

...because with allowance and acceptance comes healing

trust pearls of wisdom

The energy system in our bodies holds on to each of our life experiences, such as the blissful exhilaration of jumping into the ocean for the first time or the excitement of a first crush. However, it just as strongly remembers the less joyful times. These negative experiences can lead to stagnant energy blocks within the body, and releasing them is a vital part of cultivating good health and well-being.

For all, this release can be achieved by connecting with Your breath, the invisible giant of pure source energy. By doing so, we can ensure our energy flow is clear, vibrant, grounded, and connected. Having the correct flow is particularly important because when we love how we feel, we love what we see. Ultimately, by learning to see and trust our breath as the magical, powerful, beautiful, sacred vessels we are creates a freedom within perhaps you have not felt since the very young years of life, And, with this Breathwork immersion you will connect with your own power, release energy blocks, achieve deep healing, and ignite transformational inner strength and happiness.

 

The inability to receive support from others is a trauma response.

Your "| don't need anyone, l'Il just do it all myself" conditioning is a survival tactic. And you needed it to shield your heart from abuse, neglect, betrayal, and disappointment from those who could not or would not be there for you.

From the parent who was absent and abandoned you by choice or the parent who was never home from working three jobs to feed and house you.

From the lovers who offered sexual intimacy but never offered a safe haven that honored your heart.

From the friendships and family who ALWAYS took more than they ever gave.

From all the situations when someone told you "we're in this together" or " got you" then abandoned you, leaving you to pick up the pieces when shit got real, leaving you to handle your part and their part, too.

From all the lies and all the betrayals.

You learned along the way that you just couldn't really trust people. Or that you could trust people, but only up to a certain point.

Extreme-independence IS. A. TRUST. ISSUE.

 

You learned along the way that you just couldn't really trust people. Or that you could trust people, but only up to a certain point.

Extreme-independence IS. A. TRUST. ISSUE.

You learnt: if I don't put myself in a situation where I rely on someone, I won't have to be disappointed when they don't show up for me, or when they drop the ball... because they will ALWAYS drop the ball EVENTUALLY right?

You may even have been intentionally taught this protection strategy by generations of hurt ancestors who came before you. It is a preemptive strike against heartbreak.

So, you don't trust anyone.

And you don't trust yourself, either, to choose people.

To trust is to hope, to trust is to be vulnerable.

"Never again," you vow.

But no matter how you dress it up and display it proudly to make it seem like this level of independence is what you always wanted to be, in truth it's your wounded, scarred, broken heart behind a protective brick wall.

Impenetrable. Nothing gets in. No hurt gets in. But no love gets in either.

Fortresses and armor are for those in battle, or who believe the battle is coming.

It's a trauma response.

The good news is trauma that is acknowledged is trauma that can be healed.

You are worthy of having support.

You are worthy of having true partnership.

You are worthy of love.

You are worthy of having your heart held.

You are worthy to be adored.

You are worthy to be cherished.

You are worthy to have someone say, "You rest. I got this." And actually deliver on that promise.

You are worthy to receive.

You are worthy to receive.

 

You are worthy.

You don't have to earn it.

You don't have to prove it.

You don't have to bargain for it.

You don't have to beg for it.

You are worthy.

WORTHY. Simply because you exist
