By understanding the link between our breath and our digestive system, as well as how to properly breathe for optimal levels of stress, we can improve our gut health.
Besides breathing, grieving is one of the most natural things that we do. We are designed with the capacity to grieve, and we intuitively know how to do it. Yes, it is sad, gut-wrenching, and hurts our hearts, but it is organic. Thus, grieving is not the problem, it is our relationship to it, a relationship that is largely impacted by the societal undervaluing of vulnerability.
The breath reconnects us to ourselves. It heals us. It allows us to tap into who we truly are. However, it is often left on autopilot, leaving us to pay little attention to the depth or quality of our breathing. When we can begin to consciously alter our breathing patterns to encompass deeper rhythmic breaths, we can see shifts in our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual landscapes. In fact, breathwork is one of the fastest and most powerful ways to shift our energy, or our frequency.
We are energy. We are vibrating electromagnetic beings. The power to raise and shift our frequency is ours. Our frequency is our energy, our vibration, our consciousness. It is what we feel and what we emit in the world. Our frequency shapes our reality.

Raising your frequency is a love language to elevate your entire well-being.

There are one thousand and one health hacks out there, but their efficacy is limited if you haven’t created a healthy foundation to build from. Just as putting high performance tires on a car with a broken engine will not yield much result, biohacking a system that doesn’t have the basics covered will similarly not give you large improvements. In such a fast paced world it is paramount we understand simple techniques to influence our health and well-being.
