A few weeks back I joined a 10-day Breathwork Retreat, with no idea what I was getting myself into or what type of Breathwork we would be doing. You know when something keeps presenting itself, on Instagram, in articles, on a street sign, everywhere you look and as much as you ignore it, it keeps on showing up. All I had was the re-occurring message to go. Once I made the decision to do it, everything flowed towards it, finances, time, support, it all came together. This was BIG for me, I had so many reasons to not go (time, money, commitment and on and on…) The experience of allowance, to stop ignoring and actually sit with what is coming up, even just for a second, to see what might unfold was one of the most impactful parts of the entire retreat. Looking back, I can see how the deep work that I was about to engage with had already begun the moment I simply opened myself up to the possibility of going. It seems to be quiet simple really, if we can pause, breath, and just sit with a possibility, our spirit, soul or self will peep through the veil and direct us. Trust yourself and the messages you are constantly being presented. Stop for just a moment and witness the rhythmic spirit of life.
In future letters, I might share more of the retreat experience itself and the ways it sifted my thinking and engagement in the world.
