For many years I have worked with clients with severe trauma, using Integrative Breathwork Therapy, intense counselling and personal work. I have witnessed remarkable recoveries. Women who had been abused since a very early age have come full circle and now work successfully in the social field and live healthy, productive and successful lives. It has been a great privilege to work with, and observe the recovery and spiritual growth of these human beings.
One of these women we will look at today. Please understand that some of the presented material, which I was allowed to use, is sensitive and disturbing.
However, before I speak about Ina, I want to emphasise the importance of a couple of prerequisites we need as therapists in order to be successful, as well as some characteristics the client needs.
Therapists need to have worked through their own "stuff" to a large extent so that they are not "in the way". Only if we have let go of our judgements about the darker side of human nature, we will be able to support our clients to access their deepest and /or darkest inner self.
This doesn't mean that we - our Inner Child - will never get confused, upset or sad listening to the sometimes-horrid details of their experience. But as long as our emotions are carried in awareness, and we know our Inner Child intimately, there is no danger: we will have developed other parts like an Inner Parent to take care of our own vulnerability. And working in a team where one can share these experiences certainly helps a lot.
Love is the great miracle cure - loving ourselves
works miracles in our lives. Louse L. Hay
The month of February is synonymous with the celebration of Love. Every year on Saint Valentine's Day, sweethearts and lovers honor their relationships and express their affections to that special someone with flowers, candy or a special evening out on the town. They say that love is what makes the world go around, bringing meaning and purpose to our very lives.What Love is. This is an old question that often defies description. Love is accepting and compassionate. It is open, cooperative and inclusive. Love is expressive, kind, and warm. It fills us with a sense of connection or belonging to someone or to a community.
Ram and Sita maintained heaven on earth in which there was peace and prosperity for over 10,000 years, and children did not die for 10,000 years. Ram lived lived over 10,000 years, but Ram's father lived over 60,000 years.
When people have the spiritual practices built into their culture and everyone knows that death is optional, it is common to live from 5,000 to 100,000 years. Then when the average person starts dying at the age of 4,000 instead of 5,000, no one is concerned about it.
Likewise, when average life span drops to 3,000, no one notices or cares. The same is true when it goes down to 1,000 or 500, or to 120 or 70, and after Jesus to 35, even though the church teaches that he is the savior and frees us from death.
The mind still misses the point and the simple and pleasurable practices get neglected and pressured out of our daily lives. We live by necessity instead of choice. The unconsciousness of the mind takes over. As we notice, most people are asleep and don't choose life or death consciously. Many Rebirthees have consciously chosen life as a result of reliving their birth trauma and freeing themselves of the origins of their unconsciousness.
It takes philosophers who are interested in the big pictures and trends of history to rediscover the cause and effect relationships of life and death. And when they do - who is interested in their abstract conclusions? -Even though we have the aphorism that people who forget history are doomed to repeat it.
So unless, we spread spiritual purification and basic representative democracy, we may even repeat the destruction of the last century world wars, in spite of our superficial knowledge of history.
Adult education is the missing link in spiritual evolution.

Ignorance is not bliss! When it comes to your breathing, what you don't know could be hurting you, both in the short and long term.
Your breathing habits can have a surprisingly negative effect on your health, and wellbeing, on your athletic and creative abilities, on your performance at work, and in your everyday life.
Here are just a few signs of "bad" breathing—problems and conditions caused or made worse by poor breathing habits:
anxiety, tension, asthma, headaches, chronic fatigue, panic attacks, sleep disorders, high blood pressure, irritability, poor concentration, shortness of breath, phobias, lack of mental clarity, dizziness, cold hands and feet, immune disorders, poor digestion, constipation...
You owe it to yourself to improve your breathing! And as it turns out, there are many simple and easy things you can do to dramatically improve your breathing—and with it—your health and happiness. (*)
To start, there is one thing—an all-important thing you need to do—and that is: Become more conscious of your breathing. You need to practice "Breath Awareness." You need to pay more attention to how you breathe.
Establish the habit of consciously observing your breath at different times, in different situations, and during different activities. Do it now. Tune into your breath. Notice how you are breathing.
