Changing your breathing can literally change your life. We change our breathing through conscious and mindful actions, using tools like mindful breathing. Research has shown that by simply changing the way we breathe, we can lessen or reverse things like ADHD, asthma, psoriasis, panic attacks and more.
The Breathe Key is all about providing keys to mindful breathing for those new to and interested in the practice of mindfulness and meditation. Not to state the obvious here, but a key unlocks things! My hope is that you'll find the keys given here unlock new paths for you on your life journey, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. As with all changes we make in our lives, creating a new habit takes time, practice, repetition and dedication. Becoming a better breather and seeing the multitude of health benefits in your life, is within your reach. But be patient with yourself and put in the time, one day by one day.
On my site you will come across Blog Keys, Keycasts, (my term for Podcasts), Key People and learn about my teachings on Key Spaces, Intension Pathways, Controlled Environments and much more - don't worry I explain everything clearly for you.

Where to start your Breathe Key journey...
The Breathe Key offers you a simple path to follow, the "10 Keys Tool Kit", (10 KTK). This tool kit includes the first 10 Blog Keys and their corresponding Keycasts. So start from Blog Key 1, and continue through to 10. Enjoy the Keycasts that compliment them and once you're done, you've completed the 10 KTK and you're ready to delve deeper. Log-in and become a site member, giving you access to even more support.
The first 4 Blog Keys will provide you with a foundation to basic breathing techniques and information to get you started. Blog Keys 5 to 10 will then take you on your first steps into the world of Key Spaces, Visualisation and meditation, before wrapping everything up with your first Key Space visualisation.
Following and completing this tool kit will give you a good foundation on which to start your journey into mindfulness and meditation. Together, we will cover the very basics of how to breathe, all the way up to practising your first Key Space. On the way, you'll learn about your sympathetic nervous system and how your breathing affects it. You'll learn how to trick your brain through visualisation. You'll find useful guidance on how to zone out of that voice in your head, into your heart voice. You'll also learn a couple of key breathing techniques including 10 key tips to help you get the most out of your quiet times.
"When you listen to your heart, you're able to open the door".

This site is for those new to mindfulness or meditation, who don't know where to start. Maybe you want to lower anxiety or stress levels, feel more peaceful and grounded. Lower depression levels. Cope better in challenging situations. Need to reduce anger levels or slow down the time it takes you to become irritated. You could be looking to sleep better. You may want to gain a sharper focus on life and feel more connected to yourself and the world around you. Maybe you're on a new journey of raising your self-esteem, or maybe you simply want to know yourself better.
The good news is that an everyday key can be found within the simple act of breathing. It is the foundation block, a cornerstone to build other tools on. It is not a magic wand and will not remove any need for further support, like clinical or psychological, but it will definitely help with the management of your emotions and day to day life, while you seek out more support should you need it. For this reason, I also link up with other specialists for you on this site.
The beauty of mindfulness is that it can support us in every area of our lives and when connected with meditation, be truly transformative.
In a few simple steps, I hope to help you find your key to unlock your own peace, inner harmony and the new life you are looking for.
