Breaking the rules

Yesterday I decided to rename my upcoming Ceremonial Breathwork to Breathe with Tiffany. It felt like I was breaking all the rules to change the name of an event after it had already been created, but I am so glad that I did it!


Ceremonial Breathwork originally came to me as a name while I was talking with my Shaman. Being in her energy, Ceremonial Breathwork made all the sense in the world. It is what I'm doing. But then I stepped back into the 3D world where people don't always use the same terminology.


I realized that people who are new to me (or who are in religious recovery) may be confused or turned off by the word "ceremonial". They may not understand that I consider my entire life a ceremonial experience where I take action from a space of devotion to my core essence and the Source that emanates from my heart. It's the Priestess within me that does everything with intention and love. She's the one who can't even take a shower without also making it an energetic cleansing ritual that is intended for my highest good.


I understood that I could explain all of that or I could just change the name. So, I broke the rules and renamed the experience with words that feel clear as day. I don't know if that will change anything for anyone, but I hope it does. I hope the simplicity creates curiosity or a desire for people to sign up and experience the healing that is waiting for them. And if they don't, that's ok too.


I'll just keep going because there is no part of me that can imagine a life without healing for myself and the greater collective. I've had my moments of doubt where I've questioned whether this is "the thing" I'm meant to be doing in the world. But every time I give my energy to those questions, I know that I am just giving my power away. I've been there, done that and it doesn't help anybody!


So I'm choosing to continue to believe in myself. To believe that this IS the work that I'm meant to be doing and that the momentum for it is growing even though I can't see it yet. I am believing that no matter what has happened in the past, that does not determine my future. I determine my future. The current version of me who is choosing to be focused on who she is becoming rather than who she has been.


Will that make everything change overnight? Maybe. Sometimes it does. Sometimes it doesn't. But I know that every single step, no matter how small, is always a step in the right direction. So I'm just going to keep moving forward even if that means there are times when I have to crawl or break the rules. Because I can't imagine being in this world and not doing the things that I am so incredibly passionate about.
