Writers block? Getting stuck? Simple, just Breathe.

Have you ever had so much going on in your life that your head is spinning

and making decisions becomes impossible?

Or you have an important interview or presentation and no matter how many hours you put into the preparation; you just can’t find the right words? I’ve been there, done that!  Didn’t even have time to get the  T- shirt because I was so stressed.

Albert Einstein’s definition of insanity is “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”  Hey; so let’s do things differently!

That’s where Transformational Breath now comes into my life. No more need to stress. Just breathe.

Keep it Simple, Breathe.

Keep it Simple...breathe

A few years ago I was responsible for submitting an application for funding for a community project. I had done the research, had the evidence of need and was pretty confident of the outcome. Then I got writer’s block. Blah, blah, blah, drivel, garbage and the more attempts I had at writing the final text, the more frustrated I became. It felt like I was trotting out the same old lines and had lost the essence of why I believed we deserved to be supported. I fell asleep exhausted knowing I had until noon the following day to submit the form.

Waking up at 6am I had a sense of dread, then remembered the unfinished task. Six hours left on the clock after spending days going round in circles. So I chose to spend an hour breathing with the soul intention of bringing more clarity to the task. Now for these occasions I plug in my ipod and listen to a guided session by our Founder, Judith Kravitz and just surrender to the Breath.

As the session progressed I could feel the tension dissolve, the apprehension disappear and I bathed in the bliss and power of conscious, connected breathing. An intense sense of wellbeing led to a flow of new creative thoughts, words and then sentences. I sat up, grabbed my lap top that had slithered to the floor at midnight and started writing. By 8am I had a polished version that I knew reflected the worth of the project and addressed all the necessary points for those making the decisions.

I had asked for CLARITY and received that and much more. The experience completely endorsed my belief in Transformational Breath. I had been used to breathing for emotional release and a super boost of energy. Now I could also use it to bring immediate focus and connection with a very left brain task. How amazing is that? Incredible!

So do you have a task that you have been kicking around for a while and would like to resolve? Or is it time NOW to learn a versatile and empowering technique for smoothly allowing you to move forward in life. Call me now to book and individual session on 01373 228585 or 07973 148699.

Transformational Breath® Saved My Life

I encountered Transformational Breath® seven years ago when on a yoga retreat in Lanzarote. It became a vital means of dealing with the highly pressurised and stressful life as a TV documentary editor. It was also instrumental in releasing the trauma of three life threatening episodes which had resulted in a chronic, debilitating thyroid condition.

“My life had become a daily ordeal of struggling to cope with zero energy whilst everyone around me demanded my full attention, my 100% commitment to their project and expected me to solve all their problems. I just wanted to hide away and sleep. Nobody knew that my weekends were spent hardly being able to get out of bed with exhaustion. I felt I have used up all of my life’s energy and my body was slowly shutting down. Something had to give.”

I am passionate about Transformational Breath® because it saved my life. It released the traumas that were holding my body prisoner and allowed me to realise that rather than being controlled by a medical condition, I now had a simple means to boost my energy, alleviate many of the symptoms I was enduring and reclaim my life.

When I returned from Lanzarote in 2004 having had my mind and body blown away by my first Transformational Breath® experience, I discovered there were just two Facilitators working in the UK. I knew that needed to change, that more people should have access to this life changing therapy. I enrolled in the training courses and fully embraced Transformational Breath® in my life but I was still a fulltime TV editor.

“In 2009 an opportunity arose to develop a community project in the Chew Valley and I gladly took a sabbatical from editing to concentrate on that and also complete my professional training as a Transformational Breath® Facilitator. It was time to give something back.”

Unfortunately my best laid plans were interrupted by an unexpected diagnosis of Breast Cancer following a routine scan. I chose to believe that my invasive cancer was the ultimate detox that my body had been yearning for. The operation to literally cut out the cancer in my life was a necessary kick up the ass to get on with my life and accept what needed to be done. Saying yes to a mastectomy was one thing, coping with what lay ahead was another.

“The day of my Cancer diagnosis I breathed for an hour before I called my family and friends. I breathed for an hour twice a day throughout my surgery, recovery, chemotherapy and many medical complications. Transformational Breath® was my lifeline every time I thought I was drowning and the natural medicine that my body craved.”

Cancer is an anaerobic disease. Anaerobic disease cannot prosper in a highly oxygenated environment. These facts fuelled my desire to allow my body to heal itself with the help of my breath. The chemical warfare of chemotherapy is horrible but not as devastating as I was led to believe. I agreed to the treatment knowing that I had the ultimate de-toxing weapon. Transformational Breath®. 80% of our bodily toxins are released through the respiratory system. An effective respiratory system allows the body to release what it doesn’t need. So I breathed and breathed. Ok, I still lost my hair and my urine smelt like a chemical factory but I was fighting back and learning so much about myself.

“Breath South West and the opportunity to work alongside one of the most gifted breath therapist in the UK, Les Elms, is a dream come true. We both have a passion to share Transformational Breath® and workshops are an excellent way for people to experience the magic of this incredible teachique.”

Breath Thought for the day

Sighing or yawning is a sign that you are not getting enough oxygen.
