Connect with the cosmos with the Piko Piko Breath

piko piko breath

There may be no better way to rise above the daily grind than through breathwork, and The Piko Piko Breath is one of the best ways I’ve found.

Kahunas, the shamanic practitioners of Hawaii, use the Piko Piko Breath to both relax and energize the body. It can work for anyone, and can give a real sense of the expansiveness of the universe.

The word “Piko” means center, or naval.

Before Kahunas meditate or pray they use this breath to build up their Mana (Power) to get focused and in the right frame of mind for whatever they are about to undertake, particularly healing.

If you’ve been to Hawaii or watched the television show Hawaii Five-0, you know that Caucasions in Hawaii are referred to as “ haoles,“ [pronounced “howlies”] which means “without breath.”  This is because the Kahunas know that most Caucasians have lost the ability to do healthy, deep, slow breathing.

An invitation to transformation

A Shaman’s Pathway to the Divine

Shamanism in today’s world

Many people are fascinated by shamanism. But I believe what they really seek is a direct connection with a higher power [the Divine] and a way to experience that connection in every day life. This is what we teach.

The Ancients were masters of harmony, balance and caring for Mother Earth. Now is the time the ancient teachings are being revealed because they are needed more than ever.

Why we should stop before starting

stop before startingIn today’s hurry-up world, people often start the day in a rush so as to get everything done. But I’d like you to consider why we should stop before starting anything.

Clearing, balancing, reviewing will actually give you a better start to the day, or any activity, than rushing into it.

Here are some examples of stopping before starting:

  • Chanting “Om” before yoga
  • Athletes who do “mental rehearsal” visualizations before performing
  • Pausing before speaking so you can take a breath and exhale, re-energizing your body and mind
  • Before answering a question, stop and consider how you want to answer rather than give an answer you’ll regret
  • Take time to access your inner guidance
  • Start and end every endeavor with a smile, a teaching from the Maya

Teachings from Bear Heart

Here is the replay of my February 2, 2018 interview with Dr. Joel Ying on Living the Present Moment. We discussed teachings from Bear Heart, my Muskogee-Creek elder and co-author of The Wind Is My Mother; The Life and Teachings of a Native American Shaman. I hope you enjoy it.

Spiritual Tools from the Ancient Maya Indians for Transforming Our Lives

During our 2015 visit to the Maya city of Palenque, John received a transmission from an ancient Maya priestess, and it was a message we all need to hear:

“We’ve forgotten who we are.

We’ve forgotten why we’re here.

We’ve forgotten how to live a life of balance and harmony.”

Looking at the chaos in today’s world, it seems that truer words were never spoken.
