I would like to share an email I received from a client after her first Clarity Breathwork session. Thank you, J.E., for taking the time to write such a beautiful description of your experience and also giving me permission to post it here.

“I just wanted to check in and let you know how moved I am by our breathwork yesterday.  You are a healer and your gift is a bright light that I am grateful to have in my life.  Yesterday’s session was very intense and the pain nearly unbearable towards the end.  Your intuitive touch and your healing words gave me the strength to move through it…to stay with it…to heal the pain and survive the release.  My guides showed me where I needed to go and when I hit the darkness (the deep past) I don’t think I was prepared for what I found there.  Blessings to you for being so grounded and such a healer as to know that I was safe to continue on.  I am deeply moved.  Had a very peaceful night and woke this morning feeling lifted and balanced.  I am SO looking forward to our session.  Thank you for sharing your gift.  Thank for your bright smile every time I see you and for your healing energy.”

Jeri,

There are no words to express my gratitude for the healing breathwork session. I came to the session with and open mind and heart, but I really had no idea what it was or what it would be like.

What I experienced was phenomenal. It was a phenomena. I have never in my 50 years experienced a more powerful healing modality. I went into the session with some emotional discomfort, grieving and loss as well as some physical discomfort from an overuse injury. After only an hour, I had neither. I have never felt anything like the clear, sharp, calm, centered, bliss feeling I had after the session.

I have tried to describe it to people since, and it is nearly impossible. I have found that there is no way to “get it” except to experience it. I have shared it with many and those who have done a session have had similarly mind-blowing results.

It is the greatest healing gift I have experienced  to date.

Forever grateful,

D.

Recently Mary Gaetjens and I have been asking sound healers to set the energy for our monthly breath circles. The results have been quite powerful for the participants. It appears they can go much deeper into their process if they tone or chant as a group before their breathe.

Looking further into sound healing, I found this wonderful 8 minute video from the sound healing pioneer, Jonathan Goldman. In it, he talks about his research and shares a powerful “aha” moment about the nature of healing. It’s incredible. Thank you, Jonathan Goldman.

On July 28th, 2013 Mary Gaetjens and I will be co-facilitating a Clarity Breath Workshop with vocalist and musician Cait McWhir.

We will have a morning breathe, followed by a healthy, nurturing lunch, and then a second breathe in the afternoon.

If you have ever experienced a Clarity Breathwork session before, you know how life changing one session can be. Now is your chance to do two sessions in one day! This will allow you to reach even deeper states of consciousness and healing to create real and lasting change in your life. This will be a very beautiful and transformational day.

Cait, a practitioner of Sound Yoga, will help guide us into a profound and sacred space before each breathe utilizing vocalization with ‘bija seed syllable’ sounds and toning.  These sound vibrations and resonances will help awaken, clear and expand the level of awareness within our bodies and energy centers.

Please come and join us.

Cait McWhir, originally from Northern Ireland, is a vocalist and musician who has been exploring music and sound from around the globe for most of her adult life.  She is also a founding member of the world music trio Bindi Society.

I know good self-care is the number one reason I am still in business and doing well. I can not imagine having a healing practice if I did not first take care of myself emotionally, mentally and physically.

My self-care sessions, especially in modalities that help me process emotionally – such as hands on healing and breathwork – only happen when I book them in advance.  It is so important to listen to my inner guidance, that little voice that says it’s time to rebalance.

A few months ago, my healing practice surged with many new clients, and in a moment of pure brilliance I scheduled several healings and breathwork sessions for myself as soon as I could.

I am now enjoying the support from other practitioners as I integrate all that is going on in my healing practice, my life and the world at large. I am fully present for my clients now because of the extra support I have given myself.

The more I give to myself, the more I can give to others.

Here is a beautiful video about Clarity Breathwork by Kranti Gil.

I would like to thank my Clarity Breathwork teachers, Ashanna Solaris and Dana DeLong for so clearly and eloquently expressing the beautiful essence of Clarity Breathwork.

I am so grateful to have this powerful, life-affirming practice in my life!

Enjoy!

DSC_1057I have been writing this blog for over a year and a half, so I thought it might be time to write this mission statement. This also meant I had to reexamine and clarify my intentions as a healer. Sometimes the shortest posts take the longest to write.

ABOUT THIS BLOG:
This blog is about my energetic healing practice. My intention in my healing practice is to validate and develop the intuitive healing abilities in each person I work with and assist him or her into coming into balance physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I know that all healing is self-healing and my goal is to create a safe and inspiring place where all possibilities exist.

.
The modalities I write about in this blog are: Healing Touch, Reiki and Clarity Breathwork. I am also a massage therapist and roughly half my healing practice is massage based.

.
In my blog, I also share about my experience of having a healing business at this moment in our modern culture and just how extraordinary and incredibly ordinary it is to work in altered states of consciousness and sacred space on a daily basis.

.
Healing is a mystery. The more I learn about healing, more I realize my focus as a healer is not about intellectually understanding what healing is, but to create, ground and hold the space for this mystery to happen for my clients.

.
Lastly, my intention as the author of this blog is to communicate how this healing space can support each of us individually and as a community by encouraging the use of energetic healing – especially the modality Healing Touch and Reiki – in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals and hospice to support wellness, prevent disease and keep us in balance.

Laurie Ann Lepoff

Laurie Ann Lepoff, a Dance Teacher in Oakland, California, did a series of ten Clarity Breathwork sessions with me to heal her migraines in 2010. In the third session she actually arrived in the early stages of a migraine and released it during the breathe! Click here for the full testimonial. Laurie recently sent me this update and I thought I would share it with you:

“Last month I had tickets to the runway show at the Crucible, a very noisy busy flashy event. I woke up with a really bad migraine and thought maybe I’d just do the dinner beforehand with my friends and skip the show, but the migraine got so bad I couldn’t even do that. So finally I did the breathing (with about 2 hours to spare before my friends showed up to take me to dinner because I kept putting it off). Not only did the migraine disappear but I enjoyed the whole show with 2 hours of blaring music and flashing lights (major migraine triggers on any day) and it didn’t come back!”

This week I would like to post a beautiful account of the benefits and insights a client experienced after her breathwork session. She generously said I could publish it in my blog.

“Right after our private breathe ended, I felt very energized even though it was late and after work. After I had something to eat, I slept really soundly and felt pretty different the next day.  

For the rest of the week at work, which was Thursday and Friday, I felt a distinct absence of my usual anxiety, and a greater ability to focus and hold my group with my manager, colleagues, and my clients on a variety of different issues. My job responsibilities are spread out in a number of areas and I often feel like someone is always disappointed with me or wanting me to do something faster and better for them.  For the rest of the week, I was able to really put all of that out of my mind and focus in a way I felt I have not been able to for a very long time.  I think I am often distracted by a feeling of anxiety in my chest throughout the day, and I’ve noticed the breathwork both in our private sessions and in the many group sessions chipping away at the tension that has built up over time in the area around my chest, neck, and shoulders.

I have also noticed that my personal space when I am with people at work or elsewhere feels more fortified in a way. Normally, because I am a pretty sensitive person, it is difficult for me to not pick up on the emotions and energy of other people without it affecting me in some way. This can have the effect of causing me to stray from doing things I need to do or stay focused on my work.  I have felt the space around me to feel more protective and less permeable to outside stimuli from other people or even noise or other influences. This has made a huge difference in my ability to stay present with my own needs and flow of the day.

I feel like there is still a lot more brewing inside. I know that clarity and a sense of being more connected to inner strength has emerged since our private breathwork session, and I am looking forward to see what else unfolds over the next days, and as I continue to more of this amazing work.”

Clarity Breathwork can help keep you centered when focused on a long-term creative project. Shooting a film, launching a new business or remodeling a home is about 10% creativity and 90% hard work. The creative idea is only a small part of the process, the real creativity comes in solving all the problems that arise when manifesting an idea on the physical plane.

About a month ago on a New Dimensions Radio Program, I heard Terry Tempest Williams make the statement, “Courage is sustained attention.”

What a brilliant insight. It really made me think how many clients I have supported who have succeeded in manifesting their visions. I know how much courage it took them to stick with their project.

While supporting clients committed to long-term creative projects, I have noticed this “Sustained Attention” mode is when personal insecurities, old memories and limiting beliefs often surface. Writing a book, launching a new business, or completing a new series of paintings requires addressing and releasing any energetic blocks that stops the creative flow so you can continue to move forward.

A limiting thought like, “I’m not good enough” has to go if you have to make a deadline. Old wounds or past rejections can suddenly constrict energy flow in the physical body by causing an old back injury to emerge or cause you to suddenly not have any time to work.

Commitment takes courage. Being supported during the creative process keeps the whole experience manageable, exciting and even fun. Private Clarity Breathwork sessions are especially powerful because they create the space that allows you to let these blocks surface and release in a safe and gentle way. The focus is on you, your process and your project.

Breathwork keeps you connected to your initial passion as your vision takes form.

Clarity Breathwork is perfect for cutting right through writer’s block. When I need ideas about what to write my next post on, I just do a breath session. I’m amazed at the guidance I receive.

Support yourself as you manifest your goals and vision. Clarity Breathwork makes the creative process a lot more fun!
