5 Ways Breathwork Blows Your Mind

Chances are you’ve heard the phrase “spiritual awakening" slung around for a while, but what the heck does it mean? In a nutshell, a spiritual awakening is discovering that a world exists beyond what you’ve ever imagined. It's a often a place of love, understanding, peace and vastness that blows away your little “me” and connects you to an infinite, “We.”
 
Enter breathwork. Circular, connected breathing is a practice done lying on the floor, breathing through an open mouth, connecting inhale to exhale without pauses. This ecstatic practice liberates stuck energy and is radically different than the nose-based breathing practices in yoga. While Stanislav Grof and Leonard Orr pioneered connected breathing in the 60’s and 70's in America, native and aboriginal peoples around the world have used this form of breath in rituals and ceremony since ancient times.

My Accidental Breathwork

Have you ever...

• Felt stuck in a life that wasn’t yours?

• Dimmed your light to fit in and be accepted?

• Felt a gap between who you are and who you dream of being?

Me too… many times! Being out of alignment sucks. And I’d love to share how breathwork helped me find my way back home.

Loosing Myself In the Big City 

My very first breathwork was "by accident”. I didn't actually sign up. At the time I was living in San Francisco with my then husband, a tribal house music DJ. I was running myself into the ground working in my global hula hoop business, HoopGirl -  managing a manufacturing crew, creating instructional DVDs, traveling the world to perform and teach, and working on my book. 

I had fallen head over heels in love with my guy at Burning Man and moved up to the big city of San Francisco for love. At first it was thrilling!...

Listen to Samples of the I AM BLISS Breathwork Audio Journey!

I'm delighted to share some sound samples with you from my brand new, "I AM BLISS" breathwork audio journey download!

I've poured my heart and soul into this project, which took over a year!  (more on that story soon) "I AM BLISS" is next-level, unlike any other breath journey audio on the planet! It features our brand's proven transformational arc in intensity and emotional states. And on top of that, I've added some super special mojo that can actually change your brain state.

Welcome to my original invention: "Breath of Bliss Brain Boosting Technology".  It's a psychoacoustic tapestry designed to create expanded states of consciousness. Psychedelic experiences are induced with the use of multiple vocal tracks, hypnotic affirmations, singing, breath sounds, binaural beats, light language and much more. The result is a mystical voyage into the invisible realms, beyond space and time, to the heart of the universe and back...

How to Open Your Heart with Breathwork

What does it mean to “open the heart”?  We hear this phrase over and over again in spiritual communities, however the answer may seem elusive or down right confusing because it is such an individual journey. So, here are some ways Breath of Bliss conscious breathwork can open your heart and expand your understanding of the concept.  

While there is no guaranteed or prescribed way to open the heart fast, the most common response from those experiencing breathwork is feeling more love and acceptance. Heart opening is a path to healing that occurs on all levels; physically, mentally and spiritually. 

Breath of Bliss connected breathing creates a physical expansion in your chest.

Your heart rests in the thoracic cavity, which is the rib cage, sternum (breastbone) in the front, and the spine in the back. The bones are connected by muscles, cartilage and part of each rib to the sternum. Your diaphragm, the dome-shaped muscle that separates the heart and lungs...

4 Ways Breathwork Supports Nervous System Health

Has your nervous system ever been highjacked and left you wondering why you can’t get your emotions under control? Has your emotional reaction even been bigger than a situation merited?

Your nervous system controls much of how your body reacts to stress. In turn, the way we move through our day, lives and relationships depends on a healthy, open and resilient nervous system. But most of us haven’t been taught how to take care of this vital part of our well being. We suffer physically, emotionally and mentally because of it. Little do we know that the nervous system, like a muscle, needs training to become strong.

To break that down, in our most natural state when the body experiences stress (activation), we will feel the feelings associated with that activation. Then the body will regulate itself again by coming back to a resting state. When any part of this normal cycle is interrupted, the charge of energy gets ‘stuck’ our bodies. And the charge stuck in our...

From Army Commando to Breath of Bliss Facilitator - Lucas Nicolson 

Where are they now?

The Breath of Bliss facilitator training is a transformative, life enhancing experience. In this series, we catch up with some former students to find out how the course helped prepare them for a life as a heart-centered leader in the world.

Have you ever stood still when your body wanted to run? Feeling as though all the possibilities of your future are spinning around you and waiting to settle on the direction you take. 

This was how Lucas, a former Army Commando felt when he saw the ‘Breath of Bliss’ flyer pinned to the Byron Bay community notice board. He wanted to find out more, and yet he wanted to run. 

The reaction is a classic one; flight, fight or freeze. In the end, it was curiosity that moved the Afghan veteran, to open the doors to the community hall and join Christabel's Breath workshop happening at Byron Spirit Festival 2016.

“Sometimes, life feels like all the doors are being opened for you.” Lucas...
