… but let’s start with the sexy part first.
Unlike other breathwork techniques, SOMA Breath has specifically designed brainwave music that’s designed to drop you into a deep meditative state. I didn’t know that at the time. All I heard was this deep base-y frequency beating to a rhythm of a heart that both excited me and captivated me into a nervous anticipation.
I was in a home that I knew well, perched on the edge of a volcanic crater around beautiful Lake Atitlan in Guatemala so the stage was set after I felt safe and explorative.
I had done…
The power of sound reaches far and wide and has been a part of the human experience from the beginning of time. For as long as we have been able to make sound, we have been singing and chanting through rituals, ceremonies, choirs, and kirtans.
Only now is their science to show what is happening physiologically, and it might surprise you.
When we make a sound or hum, nitric oxide is released through our nasal passageways 15x more than normal. …
When anxiety grips, it can feel overwhelming on the good days and paralysing on the bad ones. If you live with anxiety, you’ll know what I mean.
Gone are the days where a stiff upper lip is the desired approach, and where “don’t worry, I’m fine” is an acceptable response. We’re past the time of pushing our fears aside. It’s been too long and it’s gone too far. It’s gone too far but that doesn’t mean that it’s out of our control.
It can definitely still make us lose control, feel powerless, defenceless, vulnerable, scared, angry, raw, naked, afraid, and…
What you’ve got to say matters, people just don’t know it yet. Your job is to convince them that you’re worth their time.
With the speed at which we consume information and scroll through pages these days, face-value has never been more important. A title, subtitle, and image determine whether a potential reader chooses your body of work over the millions of other creators on the internet. That’s a lot of pressure!
Relieving some of that pressure starts with a few simple tricks. Those tricks are what I’d like to explore here.
We live in a world where we want…
Being a self-published author is one of a kind.
It’s rare in any creative expression that you need to be so many diverse things. Normally grasping one or two key components of the creative process is enough. However, as a self-published author, you need to be a writer, editor, publisher, graphic designer, web designer, researcher mogul, social media guru, marketing strategist, and marketing manager to name only the biggest. That’s a lot of work!
And it can be overwhelming.
Thankfully, the path has been walked many times before so all of those key areas can be learned, studied, and implemented…
Typically, as clouds begin to build and rain threatens to fall, I move to a place where I can keep warm and dry. But I remember being a 6-year-old boy that LOVED being out in the rain. Skipping in puddles, jumping in pools, skidding and sliding on grass, and splashing in the rain.
Somewhere between the age of 6 and 25, I had forgotten just how much I enjoy it. That was until I met the woman with the broken back.
I was on the road traveling from Guatemala to Nicaragua. I was on my way to join a Vipassana…
In 1960, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi discovered a fascinating phenomenon.
He predicted that if one percent of a population practiced group meditation it would produce measurable improvements in the quality of life for the whole population.
As his community came together, they started to measure the effectiveness of their practice on their direct environment. What they discovered turned out to be one of the most uncanny scientific experiments of all time.
People in the surrounding areas didn’t know that this community practiced meditation, but the cities crime rates dropped by 16%.
After their findings, the community was spurred on by this…
Every introvert’s biggest paradox in life is this — what is the best way to be seen and heard without being seen or heard (much)?
Whether introverted or extroverted, we all want to share our gifts with the world. Whether that be through exclaiming to the world of our latest creation or by quietly spreading our work anonymously, either way, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is the equal opportunity to do so. I hope this article can be a contributing factor to that quest.
As an introvert myself, I scoured the internet in search of ways to share what…
I had in my mind that if I was to ever go viral I would have to write an article that wasn’t aligned with my values. The only other option I could think of was that I would need close to 100,000 followers and be a much better writer than I am at the moment. Gladly, I was proven wrong on both counts.
My niche (or one of them) is breathwork and although it’s gaining popularity fast it’s still very unknown by the majority of people. However, I love everything about it, I practice it every day and I write…
At just 24-years-old, Niraj Naik became a certified “legal drug dealer”. He was eager to bring good health to his local community as a pharmacist and believed in the system he was trained in.
However, as the years rolled on he witnessed firsthand how many patients went home with shopping bags full of drugs, but never got better.
His patients were staying sick, and some were actually developing even more sickness and disease and needed even more medication. Something didn’t add up but it wasn’t until he himself was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis did he want to dig deeper. …
