Clarity Breathwork: Different Varieties Of AMAZING

I always get a little excited when I try to describe a Clarity Breathwork session. It still amazes me how every breathe is so different. I have been breathing privately and in small circles for over thirteen years, and I have never had the same experience twice.

I want to thank the person that took the time to write such a wonderful testimonial, although I have to say, I do believe meditation is worth the effort. 🙂

“Initially I chuckled at Jeri’s enthusiastic promises that the breath session we were about to experience would be the “Best thing that we ever experienced.” I chalked her words up to desire to support participants and assuage any anxiety, along with her genuine love of the work. But by my 4th group session, I knew she spoke from truth!  Every breath session I had with Jeri WAS the most amazing experience I’d ever had. All just different varieties of AMAZING.

Nothing has gotten me out of my head and into a state of trust and connection to LIFE/Universe/DIVINE than her clarity breathwork sessions. I think AMAZING things happen because Jeri is a MASTER at holding a supportive space and allowing miracles to happen. Forget the efforting of meditating or investing money in drug-induced states and just go breathe!”

The  next circle is Sunday, October 27th, 2019 at 10 am to  12:30 pm, at Back to Life Physical Therapy, 403 49th Street, Oakland, California. This is a small intimate circle, limited to six people – a perfect way to experience Breathwork for the first time. You can sign up here: https://backtolife.net/event/clarity-breathwork-circle-6/

One Healer’s Thoughts In The Healing Space

As a Reiki and Healing Touch Practitioner, my thoughts are a tangible part of the fluid, living intelligence that is the healing space.

Much of the time there are no thoughts during a session, yet when they appear I have learned that they can give me valuable insights into the nature of my client’s healing process.

I remember when I first realized this. Many years ago I began a healing with a new client, and as soon as I touched her leg I instantly started having thoughts about my own childhood. I started thinking about how much I had longed for a dog when I lived in a place that did not allow pets.

I was very judgemental about thoughts that came up in my sessions, especially when I first began my healing practice. Why was I thinking about myself and my childhood? Why was I not focusing on the healing session, the client, and experiencing the healing compassion of sacred space?

When the session was over, the client shared with me how much she had been longing for a relationship that had just ended.  She had finally realized in the treatment that even though her heart was broken when her boyfriend broke up with her, he was not the partner she really needed in her life. She had released the longing she had been carrying for months. She told me how clear, grounded and grateful she now felt. A great weight had been lifted.

When she said the word longing, I realized that was the exact energy I had noticed when I had thoughts about not having a dog. My thoughts were obviously a part of this mysterious healing process. I was amazed.

Again I understood that if I really wanted to support people with Reiki and Healing Touch, it was time to let go of my judgments and expectations of what should happen during a healing session. I needed to just pay attention to what was actually occurring.

I would like to point out here that even though “I” was thinking personal thoughts, there was no emotional attachment to the thoughts. Even though the energy of longing was appearing in the space, I was not feeling longing. It’s difficult to describe. Kind of like a kinesthetic awareness of a cloud floating by in the sky, except I am both the cloud, and the sky, and the observer all at once.

Sometimes when I begin a session my brain starts firing off like the 4th of July. There is so much stimulating mental energy and monkey mind in the healing space that sometimes I even see little sparks around my eyes. When this happens, I know whoever I am working with is rebalancing some intense mental energy and I feel a direct connection to it. This connection makes it easier for me to hold, channel and just be present in the healing for as long as is necessary.

There have been so many sessions in which my thoughts have been greatly beneficial to the healing. This could be a very long post if I tried to write about them all. Once I let the belief go that I should not have thoughts, everything became so much easier and I could hold a much more powerful healing space for my clients.

Clarity Breathwork: The Practice Of Connected Breathing

This week I thought I would write about my Clarity Breathwork sessions. Several people have recently asked me about Breathwork and several clients have had significant breakthroughs during their sessions in the last few weeks.

Breathwork is amazing.

WHAT IS CLARITY BREATHWORK?

Clarity Breathwork is the practice of circular, connected breathing for healing and attaining higher states of consciousness. In a breathwork session, you lie comfortably and fully clothed on a massage table and breath deeply for fifty minutes. As oxygen fills the body and raises your physical vibration, anything of a lower vibration falls away.

This includes old emotions, past trauma, unconscious beliefs, and habitual physical patterns in your body. I am fully present and at your side throughout the session to guide you through the breathing process. I may ask you questions to help you clarify any emotions, thoughts, and energy that may come up. I may also, with your prior agreement, gently touch your legs and feet to help you stay grounded and focused on your inhale.

Clarity Breathwork is the perfect tool for releasing unconscious imprints held in the mental, emotional, and physical levels of the being. Clarity Breathwork connects you with a higher aspect of yourself so you can let go of shame and blame, and move into self-acceptance, compassion, and love. I have found Breathwork to be an incredibly powerful tool to access and release pain, trauma, and chronic conditions in the physical body.

Are you ready to make some changes, yet don’t even know what those changes are?  Clarity Breathwork may be the perfect way to expand your consciousness and open to new possibilities in your life.

“I feel whole and energized again. I had no idea how much fear and hopelessness I was carrying inside.”

Healing: The Space To Open and Integrate Life

Every moment in our ordinary, everyday existence is a potential opening to higher states of consciousness and transformation.

Many of my clients are experiencing profound shifts in their awareness as they care for elderly parents, plant gardens, drive to work, and cook dinner. These shifts can sometimes feel overwhelming, even scary.

Energetic healing sessions are the perfect place to integrate, balance, and embody these new energies and expanded states of consciousness.

Two of my sessions this week felt like deep integration sessions for my clients. I could feel all the vibrations and frequencies in their physical, mental, and emotional bodies coming into harmony underneath my hands – like an orchestra tuning up before a concert.

One client said that her body felt so much more stable and her balance was much better after she got off the table. Another woman reported her heart felt so much more open and relaxed, instead of contracted and fearful.

Stay supported during these “interesting” times. Self-care is not a luxury anymore; it is a crucial part of our life purpose and a vital gift to the world.

Update And Insights

The Perfect Picture For A Post About Pain

In these last two weeks, I’ve had a few insights into the nature of healing and pain.

First, an update on my recovery: My dislocated left shoulder and fractured right wrist look a lot more painful than they are. The physical pain has been quite minimal. I am so fortunate to know how to give myself Reiki and Breathwork sessions.

When I feel fatigued, or discomfort in my body, I stop and do a 20-minute breath session that completely rebalances me mentally and physically. Every night I give myself a Reiki session so I can relax and fall asleep. I have also received Reiki, Breathwork, and massage sessions from some wonderful practitioners.

Over the years in my healing practice, I have also watched so many people completely heal from much worse injuries, so I have a very positive outlook. I know there is no limit to what is possible.

I can’t drive yet, but I can now comb my hair and do the dishes. YES! Progress is sweet, and I never thought I would be so happy to be able to do the dishes. I did overdo it last Sunday when I Marie Kondoed my condo. All that folding was a little much on the wrist, but I did feel a huge personal accomplishment.

This injury has taught me so much. I’ve taken this opportunity of not working, of not being so busy,  to focus on being present for every thought, feeling, and sensation that arises in the moment; listening to my body as I move, stretch, rest and heal. I am sure this has accelerated my recovery.

Now one of the many insights: When the plastic splint was removed last Friday and my permanent cast put on, it was very emotional. I felt panicky, claustrophobic, and trapped. It was scary to know I would not be able to touch my foreman for another twenty-one days. When I briefly saw my wrist it was shocking to see it look so mangled and bruised. I certainly had been feeling better than my wrist looked when it was uncovered.

The doctor I had at Kaiser the day was great. He and his assistant did have to reset the bones again in my wrist, which they said was very common for this type of injury. Unfortunately,  I did not experience the divine intervention that happened with Silas in the ER during the initial reset.

The rest of that Friday, I felt emotionally overwhelmed, and that was the day I felt the most physical sensation and pain all through my body. In fact, that was the only day the pain was an issue. When my emotional body was energetically unstable, I was ultra sensitive to physical pain and prone to less than positive thoughts. It felt so different.

It was so interesting. Even during the worst of it, I was so aware of my heightened sensitivity. The pain was very tangible.

When I feel peaceful and relaxed, the sensations in my body are experienced so differently than when I am emotionally ungrounded. I mean incredibly different; it’s phenomenal.

Of course, I “knew” this before, yet now I really know it. No wonder Reiki, Healing Touch, and Breathwork are so powerful. I am even more passionate about this work, and I am so excited I am back at the office today.

Peace is so healing on every level of our being.

Energetic Healing: Emotional Release Isn’t Always Emotional

Emotional release can be a very gentle process. When you deeply relax in a peaceful state there is often an effortless falling away of stress and emotional overwhelm. One of my clients beautifully described her experience last week:
.
“During my session with Jeri, I felt a gentle and elegant opening and buoyant energy.  A  sense of positivity asserted itself over and over as I cycled through emotions. In those moments of openness, I became aware that I had been feeling so “stuck” and a lovely realization that I could and can move forward blossomed within me. I felt such gratitude for Jeri’s healing wisdom, as my guide. The beautiful journey she has assisted me with is continuing to unfold.”

A Restful Healing

It is important to remember that some of the most profound and beneficial healing sessions may be the ones that appear to be the least dramatic. I tend to write more about the exciting breakthroughs my clients experience in their Healing Touch and Reiki treatments, yet often the peaceful, very still sessions create the most profound shifts in the lives of my clients.

“I felt SO much better after our session yesterday.  It almost surprised me how much better I felt, because nothing huge or dramatic happened during the session. Remarkably, by the time I left yesterday, I felt completely rested despite getting one night’s adequate sleep across two instead, and I carried that forward all day.  Some of the irritability and stress had lifted too, and I finally slept well (though still not enough) and woke up feeling rested this morning.  Thank you! “

Healing And The Deep Cosmic Current

A client asked me:

“Does having one particularly intense or energized session sort of change the energy of the day and make the rest of the sessions more likely to be that way?”

This is an interesting question. When one of my clients has an intense “breakthrough”  healing session, I know there is a very good chance there will be more such sessions in the immediate future.

I revisited a post I wrote in  2012 called Patterns in a Healing Practice. In it, I wrote how clients with the same issues and conditions seem to appear in my healing practice in waves: waves of clients with anxiety and stress, waves of clients with knee concerns, waves of pregnant clients. I noted that being in the healing space on a daily basis gave me a sense of being connected to some kind of deep cosmic current.

This “Deep Cosmic Current” appears to facilitate different healing opportunities at different times, accessing the specific energy needed for those deep transformative healings. Clients that I work with weekly, bi-weekly and monthly will frequently have “breakthrough” sessions at the same time. I sense that there are just certain times when certain healings energies are more available than others.

Could this be because of me? Could my personal energy, mood, biorhythms of the day, be a significant influence?

Over the years there have been days when I had felt “less than perfect” when I arrived at work in the morning, and those days have often been unusually high energy and beneficial for my clients. These are the times I sense my role is not so significant in the healing process. It feels more like the client and I are surfing a universal wave together.

This is another reason regular self-care healing sessions are so valuable. Energy sessions are helpful on any given day, yet there are days when there appears to be more energy available, in which the veil of separation is thinner between spirit and matter, periods in which divine grace is more accessible in the cosmic current.

These are auspicious times to have a healing scheduled.

Self-Care Before The Family Holiday

The Holidays are more enjoyable when you take care of yourself. Now is an excellent time to schedule a Healing Touch session to help you stay balanced, centered and grounded through the month ahead.

“I feel SO much better since our session Wednesday–thank you!  It feels a lot like the cloud of depression or heaviness or whatever that landed as soon as I left the workshop has finally mostly lifted.  It is a sensation of being physically lighter (and more energized, but in a good way) and just feeling more balance and less easily angry.  I’m grateful to have this now–and grateful to have this too going into a week at home with my family.”
