Holotropic Breathwork: A Spiritual Awakening Journey

My spiritual awakening journey

When I first stepped into my very first holotropic breathwork workshop, I was curious, desperate and open to experience something new. I had no idea what to expect and also didn’t think too much into it. Like, How could something as simple as a specific breathing technique lead to anything profound, let alone a spiritual experience?

My doubt quickly melted away when as I allowed my breath to go deeper and deeper

following the guidance of the facilitator, I entered a realm that can only be described as transcendent.

Visions, emotions, and memories that had been buried deep within my subconscious mind came rushing to the surface. But instead of being overwhelmed, the experience felt like peeling back layers and layers of conditioning that had kept me from touching my true essence. I felt held in the experience and so had the ability and courage to keep experiencing, to keep breathing.

Visions, emotions, and memories that had been buried deep within my subconscious mind came rushing to the surface. But instead of being overwhelmed, the experience felt like peeling back layers and layers of conditioning that had kept me from touching my true essence. I felt held in the experience and so had the ability and courage to keep experiencing, to keep breathing.

At certain points, I had no awareness of my physical body whatsoever.

It was as if I was floating in a vast, timeless ocean of consciousness and oneness. There was no separation between me and God or me and other human beings. The veil of separation between myself and others was lifted. I felt the oneness in all things. Every inhalation and exhalation flowed in harmony with the rhythms of life itself.

Other moments unlocked portions of my psyche I didn’t even know existed. When I closed my eyes, I vividly saw images of past lives, symbolic figures, and spiritual truths. It felt like I was connecting to a deep source of ancient wisdom.

I also was able to work through some very deep, inner child work. Some of the work I thought I already worked on in talk therapy and yet here, I was experiencing them and “knowing” not just with my mind, but with my full body.

After the breathwork session ended and I returned to normal awareness, I felt reborn and amazed by the vast inner realms I had explored. Holotropic breathwork had cracked me wide open to the profound depths and vastness of my being.

In the weeks that followed, I experienced an ethereal afterglow and sense of spiritual awakening. My relationships, thought patterns, and general presence in the world all shifted in beautiful ways. I had glimpsed the sacred and it was now my work to integrate and embody those realizations.

For anyone feeling called to explore the leading edges of human consciousness and spiritual growth, I cannot recommend holotropic breathwork enough. This ancient practice provides a safe, legal and remarkably powerful portal for awakening to your truest, most illuminated nature.

Breathe in, breathe out, and prepare to be transformed from the inside out.
