Open your heart to love, connection, and abundance.
I created this breathwork meditation for you in order to feel, on an embodied level, the energetic resonance of love in your body + energetic field.
This is incredibly important to cultivate in your life, since our energy leads the way.
It is not enough to think about the importance of opening your heart, understanding this on an intellectual level. It must be felt in the heart + body.
If you are not energetically open to giving + receiving love, you are subconsciously signaling a closed energy field to the world - and people and situations will leave you alone.
This is one of the reasons why embodiment practices are so popular right now, because people are learning about the importance of this.
We are able to sense within others when their words don't match their embodiment - and people can tell the same about you, whether they are conscious of it or not.
You may consciously desire love, new friendships, or connection in general, but if your heart is shut down, you will be subconsciously blocking it.
This breathwork meditation gives you a simple practice to open the heart and practice giving + receiving love.
If you are new to breathwork:
If you are new to type of breathwork I do with clients, it is a very simple three part breath that is done all through the mouth, lying down.
The first inhale is into the belly, the second inhale is into the chest, and then one full breath out.
You will hear a breather in the background on the audio below that will demonstrate what it sounds like.
When you are laying down, try to lie flat without a pillow under your head. This ensures that your throat chakra is fully open and not collapsed, and that the spine is straight.
Breathwork is incredibly powerful and gets you into an altered state, which simply means in this context that it gets you out of your mind and into your heart, body, and intuitive channels.
In other words, it shifts you from the masculine into the feminine.
It's a wonderful counterbalance to being in your head all of the time, and works on the subconscious levels.
Breathwork can be done every day, and once you learn the technique, it can be wonderful to practice for 5-20 minutes at a time, making sure to allow at least 5 minutes afterwards to rest and recharge.
Heart-Opening Breathwork Meditation
If possible, please listen to this with headphones, as the background music includes theta brainwave frequencies that get you deeply relaxed.
It is okay if you don't have headphones, but the experience will not be as deep.
Make sure you are laying down in a quiet, private place where you can be undisturbed for 25 minutes.
Things to note if you are new to breathwork:
Breathwork is powerful and if you are new it can feel very different than you are used to.
The first few minutes can be difficult for some people as they make the switch from the head into the body, heart, and intuition.
Resistance can pop up if the mind/ego is particularly active and has a hard time letting go. Commit to the breath and trust the process. After a few minutes, you should feel a nice flow of energy in the body, and this can feel like tingling. It should feel pleasant.
Occasionally, people can feel lightheaded in the first few minutes. This usually goes away as the mind relaxes and trusts the process. Just know that you have full control over the process. If you need to slow down the pace, do that. If you need to take more shallow breaths, do that. These two variables of speed and depth can be played with as you breathe to make the experience your own.
Breathing faster and deeper will make the experience more intense, and some people love that. But you don't have to.
Hand cramping can occur when you are new to breathwork or don't breathe often in this way. It's also known as tetany (or lovingly referred to as lobster claws in the breathwork world) and is not dangerous. This is when the hands/fingers may start to close up and feel stuck, but I promise that when the breathwork is over and you're resting afterwards, they will open back up.
It used to happen to me every time when I started breathing and I didn't know about it beforehand, so I got scared. But it doesn't happen to me anymore and most of my clients who breathe regularly don't either.
If this happens, you can either trust that it will be fine and just let it happen, or you can slow down or stop the breath until they relax again.
This breathwork meditation is powerful and can create major shifts in your life. Please message me and share how you like it and what shifts you have noticed.
As you are doing the meditation, pay special attention to whether it's easier for you to give or receive love. For many of us, it's easier to give love rather than receive love. This is something I often work with clients on, helping them clear old trauma and/or programming that may be protecting their hearts.
After some time spent working with the nervous system, learning healthy boundaries, and reprogramming your beliefs around love and trust, receiving love can become easy, effortless, and joyful.
