My journey to uncover my true self has led me to the beautiful practice of Breathwork.
I played football at Georgetown University until 2010 and up until then, my life was built around this identity that had been created over many years of playing the sport I loved. When I stopped playing in 2010, my world came crashing down because I no longer had this identity propping up who I was anymore.
And so started an amazing journey in search of my true self that I am still on today.
This journey led me from Chicago to LA where I was introduced to Breathwork, a powerful form of active meditation done laying on your back breathing to music. When I first started breathing, I did it because it felt good. Breathwork has given me clarity that I see and feel. It has taught me what love feels like. It blasts fear right in the face. Its like powerwashing a driveway that hasn’t been washed in 30 years. Its like cleaning out an old stinky attic so you have the space to create a new badass attic.
Your breath is a legal psychedelic that you can use everyday to access parts of your mind, body and spirit you don’t have access to in the conscious, waking plane.
I’ve learned that Breathwork isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. It shows you your stuff… the stuff you’ve been ignoring that has been causing your problems. Its a constant journey of clearing and cleaning. It shows you some of the darkest most horrific parts of your life which have caused the fears, beliefs and stories we live by. Breathwork clears out the old stories and connects you to your heart. Our bodies are a living library of everything we’ve experienced as humans and our breath has the ability to clear the energetic blockages preventing us from tapping into our truest essence, our limitless soul.
If there is one massive lesson I’ve learned: by holding stuff in and not expressing ourselves truly and honestly, we get sick.. anxious, depressed etc. Sometimes you are unable to express feelings with words because you are a unique individual and there are no words to accurately describe how you are feeling. So what do you do then? Express yourself through other ways. By making art, by dancing, by singing, by how you dress, by how you live… everything is art and everything is an expression of the unique you. It’s that expression of the unique you that is the most freeing medicine out there. Breathwork is the tool that you can use to uncover the true you underneath all the programmed beliefs, fears and stories that have created the identity you’ve lived your entire life up to until this point.
By doing Breathwork consistently I’ve been able to get to the root of some of my biggest fears, most of which stemmed from a sexual assault that happened many years ago. Breathwork stripped out an outdated college football player identity, and allowed me to connect with the deeply creative part of me I had long forgotten, this artist inside.
Through this journey, I uncovered the communication of light which is shown in my art work. Its true expression of spirit and, when spoken, is a more authentic representation of me than the English word. It comes from my heart and bypasses the mind. It carries a vibration that has been extremely healing in many ways.
My journey so far has led me to believe that the most important thing we can do as humans is to express ourselves authentically from our heart.
By doing this, we jump head first into fear and break free of the self imposed shackles we put ourselves in. We start living in love instead of living in fear.
Now I’m grateful to have the opportunity to share this powerful tool with others as it is an amazing tool to use in making long lasting change and creating the life we’ve always dreamed of.
