Breathing Opens Up Creativity with Jen Murray

Breathing Opens Up Creativity with Jen Murray
“Honor the breath for being able to bring you through the journey that is meant for you in that moment.” - Jen Murray

Breathe! Your breath can save you—really.  I’m so excited to talk with Jen Murray, the founder of the High Vibe Healing Collective, about breathwork. Jen talks about letting go of the trapeze and leaping into entrepreneurship and how breath saved them.

It’s important to have lots of tools at our disposal when you are in spaces that are difficult. Breathwork is one of those tools. Breathwork is both simple and complex. I love the way Jen describes it as both a simple practice you can do daily and an opportunity to go on a journey. At the end, Jen ties it to astrology too — another tool for your tool box.

Jen says, “Your body will go to the level of safety that you create for it, and it will also use your breath in a way that nourishes and invites you in.” Let’s see what we can invite in with our breath.

We talk about: 

  • Four portals breathwork can open up
  • You body taking what it needs from breathwork
  • Conscious connected breath — a non-athletic breath, with not holding at top or bottom
  • Breath of belonging and breath groups
  • Breathwork opening up creativity and productivity
  • How to bring astrology and breathwork together


Calling all women balancing wellness, work, family and self… Learn a 15-minute daily practice and go to bed each night proud of what you got done.

    At the end of every episode, we share three doable changes, so you can take what you’ve heard and put it into action. Action is how change happens. Often we feel like our actions have to be huge to match the bigness of our desires, but we have seen over and over and over again that the little things add up. By stacking up a series of Doable Changes, you will create that big change that you crave. Choose the one that really resonates with you this week and really make it part of your life. 


    DAILY BREATH PRACTICE. You can have both a daily breath practice and go on a journey with breathwork. Choose a daily practice, box breath or another specific breath. Schedule time to do it daily. You only need a few minutes. See what happens when you make it a regular part of your day.

    BREATHE CONSCIOUSLY. We all have to breathe, and fortunately we don’t have to think about it all the time. That said spending time consciously breathing can make a difference. What happens if you bring attention and consciousness to your breath?

    TRY A GUIDED BREATHWORK JOURNEY. Breathwork can take us on a journey. Let a breathwork facilitator take you through breathwork and see where it takes you. Remember and trust that breath will take you where you need to go in the moment.
