Oxygenate the mandala of being
Use your breath to direct attention into the very center of whatever feeling or sensation is arising. Send awareness inside your emotions and fill them with particles of tender presence.
Though the messengers of integration will at times take fierce and wrathful forms, they are not happening 'to' you from the outside. They are only abandoned aspects of your psyche and soma - alchemical allies of wholeness - come to reveal a part of you that you've forgotten.
As you practice intimacy with the display of the emotional world, stay attuned to the breath as it passes in and out of your lungs. Take a moment to behold the miracle that this truly is. But it is the substance of pure love which is moving in and out of your heart. Oxygenate the mandala of being with this sacred material, and allow it to infuse and nourish you, cell by cell.
