Conspire To Breathe.

Breathing, it’s something we all have in common, without it there would be no life for our physical bodies but most of the time we don’t think about it much, simply take it for granted. Our breath is an incredibly potent tool for healing and  can launch you into a thousand different worlds, other realities. That this has been known for thousands of years can be seen in the yogic traditions of pranayama, up until 1386 it could also be found in the english language in the word conspire, which meant to breathe together. Then this powerful concept was hijacked and the notion of conspiracy was born, instead of breathing together we were plotting and generally up to no good!

Breathwork has been a big part of my self-development and growth, it’s given me great understandings, and  it’s facilitated the release of enormous amounts of my excess baggage. There isn’t a baggage retrieval system in the world that could cope with the amount of luggage I’ve left behind, all that weight it’s a wonder I could lift my feet from the ground in order to walk.

I went into that session feeling a bit like a ghost, I came out feeling calm, full of light and incredibly expanded. In the session I was aware of touching on different past lives as well as aspects of my current biography, not going in to the stories, but being aware that the basic issue of  betrayal and not being able to trust was present in them all. I felt enormous amounts of energy moving in my body and being released, it’s such a wonderful feeling!

There were a couple of days of a little bit of dis-ease in the belly and then clearing it, part of the process of integration I guess, my yoga class was really helpful for this. And now I am in a new house sit and have the space to continue the integration which is such divine timing. I’ve definitely done some good work clearing but I know there is another big lot of stuff to move out and my next breath session will be next week, with the friend I asked originally.

It’s so important to know when to ask for help, I couldn’t have managed this last bit on my own, thank the Goddess for the wonderful supportive community I find myself resting in. Let us all conspire together, for peace, for love and for the birth of the new humanity!

Touch Me.

Well I got through my niggling feelings of wanting to know exactly how everything in my life is going to pan out, and wanting to know it NOW! Ok so there may be just a tiny smidgen  of doubt floating around in my belly, but I can live with that, in fact it’s probably even normal, something I was very determined not to be as a small child.

There’s a lot of talk about how kids want to be like everyone else, you know, she’s wearing that style and I want it too! I always wanted to be different, the idea of looking and thinking and being like all the other kids seemed incredibly boring to me. So when Madonna came along in her ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’ days I guess I was attracted to her rebellious nature, I wore lingerie as outer wear, teased the buggery out of my hair and tied it with black lace.

Of course I was actually being like a lot of other people, we join groups sometimes seeking to be different and end up putting on a type of uniform. You can see it with the Goth look, the Punks and probably lots of current ones that I don’t know about, not being in the loop with kid’s stuff, although I have heard of Emo. I adore Steampunk and that seems to me to offer more opportunity to actually be different, but maybe I just feel that way because I like it.

As humans we do seem to have a need to flock together, much of  self-development work comes out of relating to others, it often helps to motivate us to improve ourselves. I believe that this is one of our strengths as a species, and if we can begin to move into higher levels of co-operation there is nothing that we cannot do.

By coming together at that higher level we can make it possible for everybody to have access to basic needs, and that includes the need for loving touch,  babies who don’t receive that show incredibly adverse affects, both physical and emotional. That is the critical time in our development, but the need for physical touch remains important throughout adult life, and for that to depend on someone having a lover, means that there are lots of people who are living in deprivation.

Let the new sensual and loving age begin, not mindless orgies, a conscious journey into  a whole new definition of what it means to be human, living upon the planet Earth.
