In a powerful TED Talk, Brené Brown talks about ‘The Power of Vulnerability’. She explains how vulnerability is the source of joy, love, creativity, sense of belonging and so forth. Furthermore, she indicates that authenticity is part of being vulnerable.
One of the most common questions I get is about the practical part of Rebirthing Breathwork – how is it being done? What is actually happening. This is a wider question than it looks like, since the scope is pretty much endless.
One of the buzzwords in the so-called spiritual practising today is ‘abundance’. The desire to have enough, not to worry about how you are going to feed yourself, put a roof over your head (and your family’s) and generally – live your life with the ability to have what you want, is well addressed in this word – abundance.
A friend of mine, a colleague – a therapist himself, put up a post on Facebook, saying that he has a “collection” of outrageous comments from clients, people in his surroundings, on what a therapist “supposed” to be, behave or say. In other words, the fact that he is a therapist, with a much spiritual inclination, brought some people to expect him to be enlightened, and to act, think and behave as if he is a saint.
One of the most common difficulties I come across with when talking to people about body-mind connection, is to fully understand just how much our state of mind affects our well being. It is not about how stress can make our blood pressure shoot to the sky (it is indeed true), rather it is our approach, interpretation of our lives that affects our physicality the most.
PSYCH-K is about (amongst other things) changing your limiting beliefs, free your mind. Limiting beliefs could be found everywhere in our lives. Well, better said – they could be found in every aspect of our lives. Meaning – love, relationships, work, friends, family and what have you. In my experience, countless times the most dominant limiting beliefs a person could hold, relates to the self perception/feeling of unworthiness.
My first Rebirthing Breathwork experience, as I’ve mentioned before, was a very intense and powerful event. And I mean it in the best possible way. The second time was no less, the third was a bit “softer” and it was about the fifth session when it was much more subtle. In a nutshell – I hit a wall…
We live in a fast-paced time. Especially in the western culture – we want it all and we want it now. With everything just a few clicks away, an instant satisfaction is constantly in demand. We need everything to be as simple as 1, 2, 3; Bing-Bang-Boom. Human mind, however, is much more complicated.
Looking within could be a “tricky” thing. Meaning, like a lot of other things in life – there is more than one way to do it. We live in a time where looking within, question who you are and what you want, striving to lead a happy life, is very much welcomed. As a matter of fact – the pursuit after happiness is a driving force in many people’s lives.
So, how did I get to practise these methods?
In a way, I think these methods chose me, rather the other way round. I “discovered” each one of these methods at a different stage in my life. Each one of them came into my life at the right and precise time it was supposed to. So, I hope it won’t be too long to read, but this is it. This is my story.
