A story with sharing made possible by a life changing modality we all know as breathwork 🙌🏻 I am an incredible human being ❤️ The biggest accomplishment of the last few years of my life has been coming to actually believe it. Before that, I struggled to receive kind words and compliments about how people saw me and the work that I did. Whenever given a compliment, I would immediately deflect it back to the giver and tell them how amazing "they" were. I didn't realize the extent of my challenge until one day, a few friends sitting in a circle shared their reflections of me as a human being at the same time. I had never been showered in so much positive feedback before. All I could do was recoil. Receiving it was a massive challenge.I don't even know where it comes from. My parents and extended family showered me with love and acknowledgement throughout my childhood. But there's an imprint in there somewhere that didn't fully believe how incredible I am as a human and how worthy I am of adoration and love. Recognizing this pattern after all these years presented an incredible opportunity to work on it consciously. I'm sharing this story because I've worked with so many people who are running on this same old distorted and outdated narrative. Now, when I receive a compliment or praise, I use it as an opportunity to really soak it up and deeply receive it at a cellular level.I can honestly say that breaking this pattern has opened up the world to me in ways I could never have imagined. Abundance, prosperity, life purpose, adventure, and opportunities began pouring in from every direction. Now, I'm proud to say that the love I have for myself is in direct alignment with the love I'm so blessed to receive from so many ❤️ From personal experience, I firmly believe that loving ourselves fully is the key to unlocking all the richness that God and life have to offer. So yes, I AM INCREDIBLE & I AM WORTHY - and I'll spend the rest of my days helping as many people as I can to remember that they are too. Believe it. ❤️
Yes.. I can totally relate to this. Feeling uncomfortable when receiving compliments. Or replying it's nothing, I didn't do anything for you, you did it or we did it together.. Ohh.. It's like rejecting other people and ourselves!
Reflections on yesterdays journey. This is from my journal this morning. It is hard to put into words, however, I will do my best here; Even though I was alone I felt like there was something, or someone there with me. Maybe it was because Brian was guiding us, However I get the sense that it was more than that. Like it was my spirit guides there with me excited that I was finally able to see what they had been trying to tell me for years. There truely is something magic in there, the breath, the stillness of the mind, the energy pops. Helping me to find my way 'home' here on this plane. So many amazing experiences in life flooding back. An overwhelming feeling of love and acceptance. Joy and Harmony. By the end of the session, around the first breath hold and before the energy pops is when I started to cry. There was pain, yet it felt ok. It was almost as if the pain, which of course has helped shape who I have become, was letting me know its purpose had been served, that it no longer needed to linger. So I was not crying out of sadness or sorrow, it was the 'letting go' of it. Then after the initial departure , there was more crying, but it was healing. It was allowing me to see my path ahead. The essence of Self and why.
@Andrew Hawkes thank you so much for sharing your experience! So warm, so beautiful, full of love and acceptance. 🙏
I'm about to call some of you out and this might sting. And I'm not sorry (cos I'm doing it from + with love) . Pulse check! Do you like to do nice things for people, offer to help... and exhaust yourself doing all of that, wondering if people appreciate all that you do? Are you always choosing to be pleasant, even when you are secretly steaming inside? Do you let other people make decisions for you all the time cos you want to be seen as "easy-going"? Do you sacrifice your own desires and dreams so you can make someone else happy (like getting married and making a baby for your parents so you can fulfil their lifelong dream; even though you're gay, or prefer to be single)? Do you put on a smile and grit your teeth through a horrible conversation in order to avoid conflict, but all the while you're having an internal eye-roll fest? Do you feel drained hanging out with your friends whose company you no longer enjoy cos all they do is gossip about other people's lives? Do you feel overly responsible for the people you love and for how they feel? Do you feel you can't be yourself most of the time? Do you say "sure, I'd love to" when deep down you mean "fuck no"? Meet the People Pleaser (PP) in you. We do a whole lot more PPing than we would like to admit. When we get brutally honest with our self-examination, we'd be alarmed at how deep our people-pleasing tendencies run and how much they permeate our lives. I know cos I've been there, done that, and bought the t-shirt. I am a recovering chronic people pleaser. Here's what I know about PPs when we strip off the smoke and mirrors. PPs are MANIPULATORS. PPs are LIARS. PPs do "nice" things cos they want something in return – to be liked, adored, validated. In other words, PPs' niceness is CONDITIONAL. I can hear you protesting. "But but but, I am a nice person. I wanna be respectful, I prioritise harmony, I enjoy giving and my core value is LOVE, you know?" By all means give. Not stopping you.
@Les Cy I still catch myself doing this, especially with people that I find it hard to say no.. eg parents.. It's done automatically.. I am not saying yes because of love but because I want to please them.. And here comes the anger later that I realize that.. I think it's a matter of setting up some borders.
It's a both way manipulation!
Since reading James Nestor's book Breath, I've started paying more attention to the contractions in my body and I realised that many times when I do breathwork my chest doesn't expand so much. He says that breathing correctly through the nose or practising all kind of techniques won't help much if we don't have the lung capacity to hold the air. So I decided to follow a different approach to breathing and I started doing yoga and the Five Tibetan rites before I do my breathwork practice almost every day. Conclusions: 1. My breathing has become more fluid 2. My chest feels less contracted 3. Breathing is becoming effortless 4. I can hold the breath holds with more ease and enjoy their benefits So, I was wondering what other people in this beautiful community are doing to expand their lung capacity, breathe better and reap more benefits of this amazing tool we have. I would love to hear back from you so we can all inspire each other and grow together.
@Alina Stoicescu I also practice yoga for about 10 minutes paying attention to how my body feels. Especially before a Breathwork Journey. Yoga opens and relaxes my body. Then I stay in silence for 2-3 minutes to set my intention for the day. 😊
Good morning guys! 🌞 I am in the 10-week training for the breathmasters certification that starts on the 27th of March. And feeling very excited!🙏 Which of you is also participating in the training?
@Yvonne Wierenga I finally got access to the portal today. I posted in the Facebook group and Hannah sent me the link there.
@Marc Assaraf send an email to email@example.com
As long as i know i am struggling with morning routine Or rituals. I am not so motivated for that and give up quick. I start fresh with all sorts of it and after a week, sometimes i start skipping days and in the end i quit. Now i am in the MB 30. First week was Great. Week two the struggle came with the holo breath. Now i allready skipped 2 days and Its so hard to get back in it. Does Antbody have tips or advice for me? When do You do it, what helps, what time is the best to do it? I could use an accountability partner. Want this so bad. I it fear or sabotage? Help is really appreciated 🙏🏻❤️
I feel you Yvonne. I face the same issue.. In the 3rd day (content) of the 5 day challenge program, Brian gives some great tools for overcoming this pattern.
@Yvonne Wierenga sending you love!
Hey everyone :-) Inspired by the post below for a great playlist, I wondered if anyone had any great book recommendations (breathwork, mindfulness etc)? I love reading, and excited to really get more understanding to help guide others :-)
"Just Breathe" Dan Brule A lot of information, great techniques! Any book of Osho, Eckhart Tolle, but I guess you are already familiar with.. And now I am reading the Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda which is really good! A more spiritual approach of life.
Yess! It is really great! And I believe that reading it once is really not enough. Too many qualities to meditate on. 🙏

Hello everyone! So happy to be here! Breathwork journeys are totally mind blowing for me! The biggest release I have ever experienced! So grateful 🙏❤️
Transformational Breathwork Journey with Brian Kelly - Sept 17, 2021 Brian starts with "give me a thumbs-up if you can hear me". Even knowing this is a pre-recorded session, I found myself giving the the thumbs-up like a dork. Sending love and healing prayers to Aaron🙏🏼🕉️
I bought the MB30 last summer and had not the slightest idea what a Breathwork journey is.. 😅 So, after finishing the 1st week, I decided to try it. I had the Breathwork journey for self-love and forgiveness!! I was lying down and in the middle of the journey, I sit with eyes closed, talking to myself, what the f..k am I doing (my fingers had this tetany thing), trying to grab my phone to ask for help and in the next second, I lay back down and finish the journey. I wanted to get in the screen and hug Brian! 😆🎈🎉 That was my sign! I had overcome the restrictions of the mind. 🙏
Hey everyone - really pleased to e-meet you all and thank you for welcoming me to the community. I'm from Wales, UK and spent my entire working life people pleasing, striving and over working to achieve results - putting myself last and refusing to admit that I needed help - until my body eventually stepped in, shut down and I ended up admitted to hospital in 2018. That was when my journey of self care started. It started with greater emotional self awareness, and actually listening to how I feel rather than shutting myself down to please others - which has taken me on a journey for how I can be the best version of myself. I found breathwork in 2020, and have used it off and on since then, not really finding a consistency or "the right fit". I took the 5 day challenge in January and completed the 9D breathwork this week and I'm hooked - I can't really put it in to words, but it just feels right, it feels like the direction and the right fit for me and I'm in 100% Looking forward to getting to know you all better in the coming days, weeks and months
I love it to Be myself and Be seen as me. All the lovely responses of Every one i even not know. This site has beautiful people in it. Thank You so much for being here 🙏🏻❤️
Hello! My 1st time posting on here as have discovered I need 'likes' to gain access to other Levels of fabulous breathwork practices on this site. So please throw me a few likes :) I have not long completed day 28 of the MB30! Wow! Just love these morning activation practices. I have noticed a greater sense of general calm/steady-ness within myself. However, also some very painful emotions/trauma/reactions have surfaced in a very powerful way. This is good, but intense. I feel like my system is purging, I am grateful for this. C x
I’m new here and just completed the 5D challenge which was awesome 😎 I’ve just realised I need 7 people to like this post so I can unlock the 12 minute morning activation! Are there 7 kind souls out there that will help me unlock it by liking this post? Will comment and like anyone’s posts who replies in return 🤩
Hello dear friends! I need some inspiration.. How do you cope with denial? Denial to practice in order to feel good, to be happy, to live a nice, happy life.. The breathwork, meditation, yoga, gratitude, journaling, anything! When you know what you should do but don't do it.. Is it all about self-worth, strength, perseverance, willingness? Even though I don't believe it, I think that I am still conditioned to see a worthy life as something that should be difficult and hard. And all the tools that I am learning those past years, really helped me and made life easier. But I still seem to seek troubles, problems to solve... Even during my practice, I am only trying to see my dysfunctions. Like not accepting life. How can I stop this denial? I hope my post is clear.. English is not my first language.. Thank you.
@Paulo Silva yes! "If you spend more than that saying it's less because of that or that, it's already on board." I am doing this. Trying to understand and rationalize the not serving thought. But in this way I am feeding it with more energy. Thank you so much for your reply. 🙏
@Erin Forbes thank you so much! I 've never kept tracking of any of my practices. Like a journal, maybe? To write down what I felt, reminding me of where I was and where I am or how I am progressing. I will give it a try. 🙏
Hi, I am Kathrin, fulltime working sigle mum of two wonderful girls.I am glad to be here and restart breathing ☀️
Good morning beautiful ones. I am reaching out for support. Some days living with cptsd kicks my a**. I find myself in a self-saboatge shame cycle again and this one has been a doozy. Full of overwhelm, avoidance, self-deprecating self talk, binge eating and spending money recklessly. Laying on the couch doom scrolling. Ugh. I feel shame around not leading a single journey thus far. I did some Journaling this morning and my shame is wrapped around success, that's all that mattered to my ex. If I didn't succeed at something, and I never did in his eyes, I wasnt good enough, smart enough, worthy enough, deserving of anything. I wasn't wife enough or mother enough. I'd never get it right and I'd just mess things up for him to have to fix. Better of just staying in the background as a pretty little thing. Just a trophy wife. More that 20 years of manipulation, control, gaslighting, abuse. That's the garbage that still runs through my head nearly 10 years later. I'm free now but I'm not. I am so afraid of not succeeding. That fear becomes paralyzing. I numb out, that became my befault survival mechanism. Even though I'm in a safe, loving and supportive marriage now my brain doesn't always believe it. Ive been working on healing my mind, making better connections and associations for my mind. I know what I need to do but I can't get my mind, body and emotions together to do it. To that end I am asking for recommendations on journeys to help get me up and over this bump in the road. I haven't done a journey in a couple weeks and I definitely feel the difference. Maybe I need to revisit a journey I've already done? I overthink everything so help me keep it simple! I know I can't effectively use the medicine of breathwork to help others if I don't use it first to help myself. Thank you all for being the amazing human beings you are. ❤️
You know what? The fact that you are realizing that you get in this self-sabotaging state, is already a win! Just by realizing it! Well done! What really helps me in times like this, is gratitude. I am writing down things that I have achieved (even the smallest ones) or reminding myself where I was and where I am right now. The challenges I have already overcome and the changes that I did in my life. The ways I have shown to myself that I love me. Keep up the good work! You've got it!!! ❤️
How big would you dream, if you knew you couldn't fail? Breath Big, Dream Big, Live Big! The only thing stopping us is ourselves. What WE believe is true, what we believe our worth is, our inner core limiting beliefs. Let's break free!!! Breath in this possibility!! Breath out everything that no longer serves you! ❤️❤️ We are all magnificent beings, full of love and capable of miracles! I am truly grateful for this community and all the true love, care, compassion and support that I feel and see here. Blessings to you all! 🙏
@Aggelis Kosmos ωωω! Βλέπω ελληνικά! 😍🎉Καλημεεερα! 🌞
@Ilya Kuipers we deserve this! 💜
Hi everyone; excited to be here. My membership was pending yesterday so I couldn't post. I did stumble on the journeys and went on one. WOW 😵. Very deep, wonderful, weird, and moving. My name is ilya, I'm originally from Holland, but I moved to the Gambia (west Africa) in august 2021 with my 6-year-old son. I had loads of reasons and had already wanted to move for a long time. In 2021, many doors opened AND the c@v!d crazy in Europe made me want to run from the (to me) scary net closing in on people. And even though I struggle here most days, I'm happy every day I took the plunge 🙏💪 My passions are Islam, the environment, and healthy living, which I firmly believe you can only do when living in sync with creation. 💚💚💚 I try to be aware of what comes on my path and why. I believe we take our breaths for granted and that I can take the next leap in my development by going on this journey. I am very energetic, enthusiastic, and determined. Love and truthfulness are my core values. I hope to connect with all of you and share experiences.
From when I remember myself, all I was dreaming about was to become a mother.. To have a baby, a beautiful, happy, loving family. Fast forward, at the age of 22 I left Athens in Greece, the place where I was born, and came to Cyprus. I felt that I was suffocating there (very strict parents, critical, never felt enough, felt unworthy no matter what I did but this is not the point of the post...) and that everything was better, easier and simpler in Cyprus. Especially for having a family. And they are. It wasn't easy in the beginning but now I can say that it is the best decision I've made so far. I found a well-paid job as an accountant, I bought a car, I bought my apartment, everything was going really well. And by the age of 29 I got married. To a really nice, caring, loving man. Life was good. Until we started trying to get pregnant.. And we couldn't. Doctors, tests, drugs, 4 IVFs, nothing.. No matter how hard we were trying, I couldn't keep the babies. The hurt, the pain, the disappointment, the grief, the sadness, the unworthiness, all stayed inside me. I thought that I had to show up as being strong and unaffected of what was going on. To be proud, no matter what.. Until I reached to a point, that I didn't want to hear about trying again and the worst part that I am still ashamed of, I didn't want to be near children.. They were getting at my nerves! I didn't want them. I didn't want them to want me, to be around me, to show me love.. I was numb inside. I felt that there was no purpose in my life, that there was no meaning in life! I was feeling nothing. All these affected really really bad my relation with my husband but thank God we managed to stay together. I found the strength to seek help, when my vervous system was not taking it any more and the anxiety, fear of death and panic attacks were uncontrollable. I refused to take drugs and I started yoga therapy, akasha energy healing, I changed my diet. And decided to become a yoga teacher! And later, yoga therapist, because I saw the big shifts that yoga offered me. I wanted to offer this freedom to the whole world! And in 2019, I quitted my job, and became a full time yoga therapist.
@Alina Stoicescu yes yes! Making more decisions from the heart.. Breathwork journeys are the most effective way for me, to get out of my mind and connect to my heart. Thank you so much for your support. 🙏
@Cindy Howard wow!! That is so wonderful and really amazing! Thank you so much for your reply! All this experience brought us so much healing🙏 For ever grateful. Sending you love. ❤️❤️
My name is Paulo Sérgio and I'm from Brazil. Some awaken by love, others by pain. 8 years ago I had a diagnosis of a chronic illness, my mother had a stroke, I lost my job at the time I worked as an architect in a company and I lost my relationship. I didn't know anything about anything. I went into a deep depression and weekly anxiety attacks. I thought it was my end. My mind was against me and I was stuck on the victim. So I started my trajectory. I started with Yoga, which led me to meditate, which led me to the family constellation, which led me to brethwork to led me a Reiki. Today I consider myself healed, but I know that this process of self-knowledge is for life. I am grateful just to be in a group of people from all over the world, making a movement for a better world. Getting here is a victory for me. It's gratitude being laid out in front of me. Every healing step has brought me here. So thanks to all the team and @Brian Kelly . I had already participated in other breaths, but from another perspective. In that 9D breath you feel able to change your life. Nothing said is an absolute truth and every belief can be replaced by another. Gratitude. No shame in being myself.
Thank you so much for sharing your journey Paulo! Getting through all these experiences is so transformative! Let's enjoy the ride. 😎🎉❤️
Hello beautiful souls, I have a question. I have a little prothese of 4 teeth in my mouth. So my mouth is more dry then normally. I allready take it out When i start a breathing session But the first minutes are really heavy Because of the heavy dryness i start coughing and have a very sore troat. Can i do something About it Or is it just getting used to the breathing? Thank You for Reading and hope i wrote the Words all well 🤣🇾🇪
Hello Yvonne! Have you thought using a moisturizer spray to soften your mouth and throat before your breathwork practice? Maybe it could help. Apart from this, I had a twice personal experience of a Breathwork journey while having a sore throat, and I noticed that after some time, my throat did not bother me. So, yes, our minds are playing some role in this. 🙏💙
From what I understand, this 05-day challenge is for us to choose the best breath according to our individuality and our individual time. However, it is important to practice every day preferably at dawn and use the other breaths throughout the day, becoming stronger for the challenges, leaving the victim and transforming your life. It is true?
Yes, this is what I understand too. Choosing the breathwork technique that suits you for a boost in the morning, balancing through the day and relaxing in the evening. And maybe build on the length of your practice. In the MB30 program, you practice each morning breath per week, but longer each day.
Just completed the 5 minute breathwork. My baby girl has been sharing how she is seeing double of people. We believe she might have one lazy eye. And today when my husband shared she said she saw 2 of her older brother, fear came into my body. So rather than ignoring it and telling myself I'm OK, I did this 5 minute breathwork exercise and felt so empowered afterwards. She is going to be OK! I know it and trust everting is happening for her and me perfectly! 🤍🙏 Thank you @Brian Kelly for this gift!
Krystal, thank you so much for sharing! This is a great proof of what breathwork can offer us. Mastering your thoughts, mastering your life.
Before I get into the topic of my video, I want to shout out @Yara Randa for inspiring me to talk about this topic. This video will cover self-resistance isometrics and how it can help readjust and invigorate the nervous system so that you can dissipate stress, anxiety, lethargy, and any other non-beneficial state you might be experiencing. While the basis of the technique places emphasis on muscle contraction, this particular approach places heavy emphasis careful implementation of conscious breathwork. Self-resistance isometrics involve using one's own body to generate maximum muscle tension over 1 or several different muscle groups. The most sought after result is massive improvement to one's physical strength. However, the process allows for a number of supplemental benefits to arise. First, to perform this type of technique you have to concentrate intensely on the activity you perform. In addition, these type of contractions generate and facilitate massive amounts of nervous system energy during to exercise. As a result, this technique creates a number of changes in the practitioner. First, it strengths the mind-body connection and helps enhance concentration, focus, and control over normatively autonomic bodily systems. Second, it strengthens, activates, and energizes the nervous system. Because of the effect on nervous system energy, self-resistance isometrics can redirect energy away from physiological processes that foster non-beneficial states of being. In addition, this energy transmutes the nervous energy from fostering undesirable or detrimental emotional and mental states into power to enhance your well-being. In the video below, I'm going to outline the exact method for implementing this technique and how the breath plays a role in the effectiveness of the technique. This video was uploaded to YouTube instead of directly to this platform because the video size was above the the 100 MB limit 😆😆😆
Thank you very much for sharing this technique! It is very helpful. 🙏
I had a client with chronic arthritis (20 years +). When asked when it started she said after her abortion. The feeling of guilt was eating her alive causing pain in the surface. After our session, she said the baby came out from her uterus, kissed her on the forehead and said “i Forgive you”. Since that moment, she never felt guilt and her chronic pain went away.
Hello beautiful souls! I would love your opinion on this. I am a yoga teacher and I am practicing different Pranayama techniques, but for the last 7 months that I have found breathwork and I am practicing this kind of breathing, I am totally excited and I see profound changes in my life! Especially after the breathwork journeys.. Oh my God! The realizations that are coming to me are so magnificent and simple, that they just stick in me. So grateful! But, sometimes, the next one or two days after the 1 hour breathwork journey, I noticed that I am feeling really tired. Like sleeping for hours.. It's normal, right? Is anybody else experiencing something like this? Is it the body's mechanism for healing? Thank you! Namaste 🙏
