Getting To The Black Box

Elijah

One fellow in our recent two-day Trauma Release, who I’ll call Sam, started with us many years ago. He did the breathwork and got a lot of tingling and sensation, what’s known as Tetany. He stopped getting it after a while, which is common.

During the pandemic, we were running 40 classes a week like a yoga studio with many facilitators and he came to a class almost every day. He never got the tingling or tetany. It felt good, but it wasn’t trauma release work. 

In all my years of knowing Sam, this was his first foray into an immersion. He shared many personal and professional goals and I pushed him to work harder, breathe harder and want harder. Part of his trauma code was not owning the power of his dantien or sex center. As it turned out, his spiritual teacher was recently accused of sexual abuse with students. Somewhere in Sam was the idea that male power was bad. After many years with his teacher, he was proven right. 

Sam breathed harder and worked more deeply with us and had a very profound and powerful experience that gave him tetany again for the first time in five years. During his share, he was noting it without necessarily suggesting why. 

The reason is simple. 

It’s not the amount of breathwork you do, it’s how you do each breath work. Effiji is not breathwork. It’s a system for releasing trauma. That’s it. Breathwork is a vehicle to get there but without this important purpose you are not going to be led in the right way. 

How you breathe in the breath is a mirror to how you are living in your life. But you won’t be able to fully see it. That’s the main purpose for Sarah and me; to see where you are and what the opportunity is to get to the next level. 

Trauma is like that black box on the airplane that doesn’t get destroyed even in a plane crash. It’s secret and hidden and hard to get to. 

You can’t get to the black box by yourself because the programming that created the black box protecting your secrets is designed so that you will not get to it. That’s what trauma programs do. They keep you from accessing the box.

Sarah and I are there to see it and then ensure that you can find it too. .

Sam’s discovery is that he can be more intense, more involved and more committed to what he wants. That will make his energy more exalted, powerful and dynamic. 

The next two-day Trauma Release is coming up on 4/6-4/7.
