Just Breathe

By | Journeys to Heal Tools | No Comments

I want you to stop right now and take a deep breath.

Go ahead!

Can you remember the last time you really stopped for a minute and did that? We have been conditioned by today’s society to win by any means necessary. We are told to be the best, do the most, and never stop. But, how does that pressure manifest in our bodies?

The pressure of this toxic energy that builds up over time shows up as stress, anxiety, and depression. Depression is the energy that keeps us stuck in the past and anxiety makes us fearful for the future. When we are in this cycle of fight or flight, how can we enjoy life? How can we live the best life as the best version of ourselves?

Your breath is the pathway to permanent peace and healing.  Breathwork transforms depression into inner peace, stress into relaxation, anxiety into harmony, emotional turmoil into peace, and contraction into expansion. You take your existence to a whole new level.

We, in this modern society, have forgotten how to breathe. While babies and children breathe through their bellies, which is the best way to truly oxygenate your mind and body, adults use shallow chest breathing, which depletes the mind and body from oxygen, hence leading to stress and anxiety. In times of stress and anxiety, we tend to breathe more shallow, or experience moments of not breathing at all, which over time takes a toll on our bodies.

Try this breathing exercise every time you feel overwhelmed. Or better yet, add it into your daily routine at least once a day. It can be done standing up, sitting, or lying down. However and wherever you feel the most relaxed. 

  1. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose with your shoulders relaxed. Make sure your abdomen expands.
  2. Exhale slowly through your mouth, pursing your lips as you blow out. Focus on this breath. Breathe out until all of the air leaves your lungs.
  3. Repeat this exercise for several minutes.

There is no overstating the importance of proper breathing. The effect this simple change can have on your body, mind, and spirit is profound. 

If you are looking to expand and reconnect spiritually to your truest self, breathwork is one of the best and most successful ways to do it.  I frequently witness my clients have deep spiritual experiences that transform their lives in ways they never imagined. 

PS: I am so moved by the transformations I witness every day with breathwork that I am planning a weekend retreat in a stunning location 30 minutes from Burbank. I will be offering an Early Bird Special and spots are limited, so make sure you reserve your spot ASAP!! Click here to learn more…

Reconnecting with Mother Earth

By | Journeys to Heal Tools | No Comments

Do you remember when you were a little kid and you would run through the grass with bare feet? It didn’t matter if it was cold or rainy, the feel of the grass on your feet made you feel free, made you feel alive!

I bet it’s been a long time since you’ve felt the cool grass on your feet or gone outside without shoes and truly connected with our planet. Our modern lives have left us with little direct contact with Mother Earth. Think again about how amazing it felt to be a child running through your backyard with your feet and the energy you could feel transmitting from the ground into your body.

This is a process that is called “Grounding” or “Earthing.” It, by definition, means any direct contact a human body has with the earth’s surface. The thought is that the earth holds a very mild negative charge and our bodies, under the influence of modern technology, builds up a positive charge that needs releasing or it will begin to affect our mental and physical wellbeing. Any direct contact with the earth can help our bodies return to a more neutral state.

That’s why you felt the way you did when you were a child playing in the yard, splashing in a mud puddle, or walking on the beach. If you really think about it and the way we live, you could probably go years without ever physically touching the earth. These modern habits have left our bodies and souls out of whack and continue to contribute to illness and burnout.

Practicing grounding doesn’t take any fancy equipment or expensive memberships to gyms. It’s just a matter of taking time every day to walk outside and connect with nature. The next time you go outside, kick off your shoes first! If you are near a lake or a stream, dip your toes in the water.

Make it a habit to commit to physically and directly touching the earth every single day and you’ll soon begin to notice the subtle changes in your life and maybe even start to feel like a kid again!

What’s holding you back?

Think about the last time you took a vacation and all the luggage you packed. Now, think about the vacation before that, and the one before that, and so on. Now imagine, you had to carry along all the bags from EACH vacation to your summer vacation this year. 

How would you even try to board an airplane or get in a car with all those bags holding you down?

Now, imagine each of those bags is an experience from your past. Each bag represents something that has happened in your life. And each one is holding you back from becoming the person you were meant to be.

Every day, we carry around baggage that we don’t even consciously realize. Those things become part of who we are and affect our lives in countless ways on a daily basis. These old ways become our norm and mold us into creatures of habit who just perpetuate our self-limiting cycles.

In order to let go of all the things that hold us back, we must first acknowledge that they exist. Many of us carry around our past without even realizing it. Once we know they are there and confront them, we can become better equipped to overcome them and finally let go.

I encourage you to think about the baggage that you carry around every day. How does it affect your daily decisions? How is your past holding you back from living in the present and creating a beautiful future? 

Join me on August 3rd for a 3-hour breathwork workshop at our beautiful Agua Dulce retreat home for a celebration of healing, transformation, and growth. Breathwork takes a deeper approach to self-exploration. It is a powerful tool that can clear years of emotional blocks and trauma in a single session. And stay tuned for information about my upcoming international retreat where we take a deep dive on these limiting beliefs and old habits that are preventing us from moving forward.

Being honest with yourself is a scary process, so my goal is to create a safe environment where you can put a voice to your self-limiting beliefs and finally release them once and for all. It’s not just about what happens in our time together, but taking the skills I teach and putting them into practice in your daily life.

Isn’t it time to put down those heavy bags and see where you can go without all that weight holding you back?

Overcome Spiritual Blocks Through Hypnotherapy

By | Journeys to Heal Tools | No Comments

Hypnotherapy enables you to tap into hidden qualities of your subconscious mind, overcoming spiritual obstacles in your life. If you find that you’re having troubling thoughts and are conflicted about your spiritual beliefs, hypnotherapy can help bring clarity into your life. Your subconscious mind is oftentimes difficult to connect to without hypnotic techniques. Through relaxation and other concentration methods, you can get in touch with your spirituality and face the obstacles that are standing in the way of living a carefree life.

Hypnotherapy allows you to tap into the 88% of your mind power, which is your subconscious. Your subconscious is the hard drive that holds all of your beliefs, habits, and behaviors. On a subconscious level, you are able to make permanent shifts and changes to your beliefs, habits, and behaviors, which you are not able to achieve on a conscious level. Since we operate on a Beta brain wave level on a daily basis, which is the state of mind where you are consciously alert, agitated, tense, and afraid, through hypnotherapy you are able to achieve Alpha level where physical, mental, and emotional relaxation is achieved. At an Alpha brain wave level you are able to easily access and target the core of the problem or your negative beliefs, habits, and behaviors and through suggestions and other hypnotic techniques “unplug” from the old and plug into the new and desired belief, habit, and behavior.

When you access your subconscious mind, you find new and permanent solutions to overcoming spiritual obstacles. Our subconscious mind is out of our awareness yet it stores all of our feelings, memories, and thoughts. It allows us to connect with our spiritual being and is a powerful component of how we function and thrive in society. By being placed in a relaxed Alpha state, we can temporarily place your conscious mind to rest and directly access the deeper region of your psyche.

Journeys to Heal offers hypnotherapy and other services to help you overcome obstacles, achieve your goals, and remove stress from your life for good. We all experience stress at some point in our life and it’s important to target the core issues in order to find peace and clarity.

By getting rid of the obstacles that are getting in the way of you achieving your goals and dreams, you enhance the quality of your life.
