Healing the Inner Child

blondgirlI took my inner child for a walk this past Sunday. She is about 5 years old with golden locks of hair and sad eyes.
She wanted to cry. Not just some tears or a random tantrum. It was a deep visceral sobbing. It wasn’t a long “poor me” crying session either.
It was a release from sadness in every cell in my body.
It felt like in that one cry, I cried for my mother, my grandmothers and all children who felt neglected.
I have done lots of inner child work before, I teach it almost daily to my clients, never did I have this communion with my little girl before.
I asked her the usual inner child questions ‘What would you like to say?” and “what would you like to hear?’.
I think there is an Universal Inner Child within us. He or she wants to be seen, heard, and valued.
I practiced slow deep breathing with her in a seated position and I just allowed her to hang out with me all day.
It isn’t so easy to do inner child work, that is why most people avoid it all their lives. It feels raw, extremely vulnerable, often times confusing and emotionally draining.
But the rewards are many. Inner child healing creates integration as a functioning adult, emotional maturity and a greater awareness when acting or reacting from a child’s perspective.
As we give our inner child what she perhaps never had, like deep listening, we will naturally create others being present, kind and loving towards us.
What does your inner child like to have or do today?

Is it confrontational or a door to freedom?

Some people say that Breath-work is confrontational.
When I had my first session back in 2003 twenty min into the relaxed circular breath I got up and declared the session over! I wasn’t afraid of loosing control at all! LOL 🙂12472525_1079525385404268_8637982305431287086_n
The invisible wall I sensed was so incredibly real that it froze my body into a cold sweat. I can still remember my shirt being wet along side my spine.
Back in those days there were no breath-work practitioners or Rebirthers in Delray Beach and I followed my inner guidance by attending a Breath-work weekend at The Rebirthing Breathwork Center in Philadelphia. Even though I felt fear I chose to continue forward with the 9 Month Program. I’m kind of proud when I say I flew to Philly from Florida ten times in one year because it took perseverance and trust.
Leonard Orr discovered circular connected breathing aka Rebirthing Breathwork in the early seventies. He realized that by connecting the inhale and exhale in a circular manner a door becomes available, a door to your unconscious mind!
With the gift of breath awareness you’ll become conscious of your deepest default settings, the type of mind settings that keeps you feeling separate, anxious, overwhelmed and confused.
Do I find it to be confrontational? Not really. When someone is truly ready to let go of their “old story” its a relief and a gift!

Peace Be Yours

30 min Peace

Are you in overwhelm or physical pain?

The body is a complex electromagnetic power house with hundreds of energy lines running through it and with a very high end communication system – the nervous system. Conscious breathing sends signals to the nervous system to relax. Access Bars energy work releases the electric charge to thoughts , feelings, and emotions. The session is facilitated while client rests on a Bio ElectroMagnetic field mat activating circulationoxygenation and over all well being. (Not to mention neutralizing the effects of electromagnetic radiation). A perfect setting for deep peace while recharging at a cellular level!

Both my given name and spiritual name means PEACE.
For the most part of my life I resisted them both, my name and peace. The Breath showed my how I was resisting it, Access Consciousness helped me change it, and now I can actually feel deep peace and keep it. A Course in Miracles once again inspiring me…  Peace is yours and you would keep it by extending it to others.

I was introduced to something amazing that I’ve incorporated into my personal practice and sessions. I’m inviting you to a 30 min Power Session.
Have a great month! Sula

San Pedro Whispers

HummingbirdEP6

Unexpectedly I felt his touch.
It was as gentle as Humming bird kisses
I sensed the pull to unknown ceremonies down in the Canyon
Tired of my pain and committed to my freedom I showed up
I showed up again and again
Embraced by love and grace
Slowly unraveling my story
Purging projections and expectations
But It was in his land…
A land of high mountains, gentle people, and fluffy lamas
In his land the deepest blind spot came to light
Head pounding, body shivering
In every shiver eons of emotional tension released
Light of consciousness dissolved dis- ease of mind and body
The Earth swallowed my anxieties
The awareness of my personal trap was clear
I laid down my armor and my shield
I said goodbye to the one who has been fighting everything
Yes is the mantra, all heart opens
Separation was my mind’s perception and rejection was my defense
I now include myself in oneness with trust and vulnerability
I surrender my forceful will and bow in gratitude
eternal friend, where ever you are I am blowing humming bird kisses back to you.

Why I went from using affirmations to using questions

I worked intensely with affirmations for several years. Whether I was working with clients, in my Breath-Work classes or in my personal life affirmation was a constant tool for clearing the past and any negative mental mass. I saw and felt the positive effects of affirmations and then came a time when I perceived a limitation. I was looking for more expansion and less mind control. The mind wants to control and I wanted to give the mind less material to defend against or to prove any righteousness.

I started using questions instead of affirmation after I was introduced to the pragmatic tools of Access Consciousness.
I learned questions like “What would it take for… to show up in my life? “What is really possible here” or “Who does this belong to?

For example; Instead of using “I am abundance” try using “What would it take for more money to show up in my life? When a person embodies the energy they don’t need to keep repeating it. Instead of using the affirmation “I am ____” try being the energy of what you are asking for and ask for that to show up with total ease. If you don’t know how to be the energy that you would like to have ask the Universe to show you.

Here is another example; When I wake up in the morning instead of affirming that I will have a great day, I ask a question “what fun adventures will I have today?”

By asking the question, not looking for the answer, and being in wonder gives me the awareness of what can actually be possible to choose for my day to be awesome!

Gary Douglas, founder of Access Consciousness, teaches that “living as the question” and not looking for an answer opens up a whole Universe of infinite possibilities. It keeps you from jumping into conclusions and judgments which is a limitation to creating what you would like to have.

In this article from the Access Consciousness blog you can read how science is discovering that a question will always create more in your life. How does it get even better than that? 🙂
