Effiji Breathwork showed me a way out of feeling like a victim of a society that didn’t really want me to be my true self.
I remember being a young man and feeling that the powers of school, media, family and religion didn’t speak to my heart or my experience of life. I was angry and feeling oppressed.
This was before this time where we openly question the way society is set up. Back in ancient times (the late 60s and early 70s) when I was in elementary school they still had the strap. Eeks! I didn’t want to be involved with that. And if you got in trouble your parents would take the teacher’s side.
Despite being too weak to fight or openly question the world around me I had a sense that what I was looking for wasn’t what the popular people did.
After I discovered Effiji I began to see that the oppression that had control over me was even stronger in me than it was “out there”.
It took awhile to get this because while the breathwork connected me back to the power of being the creator of the problem rather than its victim, I didn’t see any value in my childhood misery. I just wanted it gone.
Having no value I made it “other” and I was just trying to get rid of it.
As it turned out what I was trying to get rid of was myself!
By going deep into the unconscious and releasing the effects of trauma I came to see that I had created all of it in the first place so I could learn lessons about being my true self. To discover that I had to be willing to feel everything that I was previously rejecting. Effiji Breathwork helped me to contact and accept it. From there I was a free man in and out.
Ultimately my message in any class is the same: During the breathwork, breathe no matter what the mind says, what the body does or what you’re going through. If you do, you will free yourself from trauma and conditioning.
Because your breath is life itself (try living without it).
When you breathe all the untruths, traumas, stuck energies will be released.
Come and find out the power of this simple truth. Next chance Sunday October 29.
