Learn how to Become a Conscious Creator of your Reality

“What we think is what we become” - Buddha

Science and spirituality are now showing us that we create our own realities through our thoughts, whether we are conscious of it or not. Many of us have been unaware of this power and have been reacting to life as if on “auto-pilot”, creating our reality "unconsciously".

Our thoughts create emotional responses, which create vibrations in our energy, from which we attract our experiences. When we become aware of this, we can consciously choose different thoughts, creating a different reality, a reality of our choice. This is called "creating consciously".

As the creators of our own life, we can design a life that serves our highest good and the highest good of all. We can raise our vibrations and attract our life experiences through a higher frequency.

“Future medicine will be the medicine of frequencies” - Albert Einstein

We are souls on an evolutionary path, here to experience all that life has to offer!

Are you clear about what you want?

Do you want to live a life filled with purpose and contentment?

Do you want to wake up every day excited to design a life YOU love?

Patrick Sirianni

Elemental Rhythm Breathwork Facilitator | Shamanic Reiki Practitioner | Sound Healer

Patrick’s background and career are in education; however, life’s twists and turns brought him to the spiritual path. Patrick began his journey with a deep dive into Buddhism and meditation where he found awareness, peace, acceptance, and as a result, more joy. Through a desire to know his deeper truth he was led to try different healing modalities, bringing him to plant medicines with the support of Shamans. It was here that Patrick was able to tap into something deeper through the use of breath.

Upon hearing the name Wim Hoff, Patrick began studying the Wim Hoff Method (WHM) of breathwork. For a couple of years, WHM became a staple practice before being introduced to Elemental Rhythm Breathwork. Studying under Giovanni Bartolomeo (Wim Hoff student and creator of Elemental Rhythm), Patrick found a deep sense of peace that he’d only found in plant medicines and Shamanic Reiki healing.

Patrick is excited to share these healing modalities with you and support you in finding your way to a breakthrough, all while letting you remain in the driver’s seat.
