Breathing and releasing grief

Here’s the most interesting part – the deeper I explored what my body held through breathwork and body psychotherapy, the more I discovered what my thoughts, beliefs and judgements really were, and the more I came to realise there is no thought without an emotional and energetic correlative in the body. None of these processes exists without a correlation in our consciousness either. Since then I’ve read the great quantum science discoveries that reflect this, and so much more, but how nice it is to feel it in the body and my relationships.

Protecting Yourself from Manipulation

Manipulators are everywhere – in homes, schools, churches, the work place. You name it; manipulators can be found wherever people are. What are some of the tactics manipulators use? Some are blatant; others are less obvious: Bullying. This is the strong-arm approach, and not so subtle. The underlying message is, “If you don’t do what I want, you’ll wish you had.” Sense of Obligation. This tactic involves “shoulds:” You should do this in order to be a good person. You should meet my needs. You ought to ________________. You owe me… The underlying message is that if you don’t do what you “should” you are mean, unreliable, disloyal, a bad _________________ (wife, husband, son, daughter, friend, etc.) Sarcasm or Cutting Humor. This comes in the form of a joke, and when you call out the other person he claims, “You’re too sensitive. Can’t you take a joke?” The underlying message is loud and clear: “Be who I want you to be or I will jab you with my words.” Play the Victim. The manipulator

Help You get your Life Back

Life has a way of taking over. It seems to run on auto-pilot especially when we are overwhelmed, in over our heads, or simply worn out from all that life is throwing our way. After a while of trying to keep all the balls in the air, we stop paying attention and simply start reacting. Amidst all the chaos, we know something has to change, but we don’t know what or how.

Experiment and slowly edit out the digital distractions:

  • Turn off all phone notifications. All of them.
  • Understand how distracting your devices really are. Use Checky, the app that tells you how many times a day you check your phone or Moment to find out how much time you and your family spend online and set daily limits.
  • Unplug during certain hours of the day, and for 24 hours a week.
  • Challenge yourself with no email before exercise or screen-free evenings.
