In September 2014, following a large gathering in Joshua Tree California, a 32 year old Man approached me who suffered from a dog attack which severed nerves in his ankle and caused numbness and restricted him to limited physical activity.
Due to many distractions, I was unable to connect with this individual to receive his direct experience.
Sometime later in review of some testimonial footage, I recognized the same gentleman’s face and watched as he shared the story of his injury.
6 years prior he had experienced an unprovoked dog attack that required multiple surgeries and long-term physical rehabilitation. He had lost most of the feeling in his lower extremity and was visibly emotional as he spoke of his attendance at two of the three-day series of breath work sessions, which were comprised of hundreds of festival attendees.
I watched with humility and gratitude as he spoke into the lens, sharing that all of the feeling in his foot, ankle and leg had been restored and that his physical rehabilitation had not yet been complete until he had experienced the “Accelerated Vital Force” restored to the injury.
As of late, it has been brought to my attention that the regaining of feeling in his foot and ankle could actually have been neural rather than physical and what I had thought to be perhaps revitalized scar tissue that had atrophied due to lack of circulation could have been related to the hemispheres in the brain that are responsible for “feeling” physical sensation.
