Why use Breath4Life Breath Work?
The breath is our fuel for living, without which we wouldn’t survive. Many of us rarely acknowledge how we breathe, despite it being the building block for all life's processes – not to mention essential for maintaining a healthy mind - body - soul equilibrium. Breathing is a fully automatic process, beginning at birth and continuing without interruption until the day we die. For most, it can be a fully unconscious process. There is no need to attend consciously to the way you are breathing. We expect to breathe quite adequately while sleeping each night, as we do...Read More
Posted on Fri, 4 January 2019Bashing self-help is all the rage these days.
In 2019 (and beyond) it’s cool to be the nonchalant type who doesn’t care about goals, sees competition as inherently evil, thinks self-help is a charlatan’s game and mocks people who want to improve.
Let’s just call a spade a spade. They’re full of it.
They won’t admit it out loud, but deep down they’re insecure and would try to reach their goals if they weren’t afraid to fail. Maybe I’m projecting, but maybe I’m right.
Forget about everyone else, let’s talk about you.
You want to be a master of the universe, don’t you? You want to see just how much juice you can squeeze out of this life.
Why not own it?
Let other people bicker about trivialities and stay crabs in a barrel.
You get one life. If you want to become a master of the universe, not only should you do it, but you should feel zero shame about it.
From now on, I’m only writing for...Read More
How to Make the Power of Your Subconscious Mind Work for You - So creative, it seems like magic: a step-by-step guide to unleashing your most innovative brainpower
Posted on Tue, 13 November 2018Our rational, conscious mind is a wonderful thing. But sometimes when we are looking for a solution, it can be a limited resource. I’m always looking for ways to work smarter, not harder.
What if I could come up with answers in my sleep? I discovered that it’s possible to do just that.
To the outsider, it can look as if someone were literally dreaming up solutions to situations. What’s really happening, though, is that a person who is skilled at this is first removing their overeager conscious mind temporarily from the equation, and then mobilizing the power of their subconscious minds through the power of a specific...Read More

To be emotionally free you can’t remain naïve about relationships. Some people are positive and mood elevating. Others can suck optimism and serenity right out of you. Vampires do more than drain your physical energy. The super-malignant ones can make you believe you’re an unworthy, unlovable wretch who doesn’t deserve better. The subtler species inflict damage by making smaller digs which can make you feel bad about yourself—for instance, “Dear, I see you’ve put on a few pounds” or “You’re overly sensitive!” Suddenly they’ve thrown you emotionally off-centre you by prodding areas of shaky self-worth. To protect your sensitivity, it’s important to name and combat these vampires.
SIGNS THAT YOU’VE ENCOUNTERED AN EMOTIONAL VAMPIRE
• Your eyelids are heavy—you’re ready for a nap
• Your mood takes a nosedive
• You want to binge on carbs or comfort...Read More

Exercise to help you create healthy boundaries
It’s best to pick a day when it’s not raining, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is. Go outside find a stick and draw a circle on the ground (It doesn’t matter what size, but approximately 2-3 feet). Stand inside the circle, breathe in some fresh air and stretch up and out to all sides of yourself, if you feel you need to make the circle bigger do so, so you have room to grow. Allow the brown ray to connect you to the earth.
Affirm; “Higher Self, I choose to create new boundaries for myself...Read More
