Allies of integration

The next time you feel triggered, pause and return your attention into your body. In just one instant of pure kindness, shift your awareness out of the spinning narrative and provide a holding environment for your immediate experience.

It may feel as if you need to turn away or to quickly seek relief, but this is the old groove that has been laid down in your network for billions of moments. Apply the enzyme of presence and offer metabolization to these ancient companions.

Lay down a new groove within you. And offer this electric new pathway to a weary world.

You are okay. Go slow. Stay with the sensations as they rise and fall in your belly, in your torso, and in your heart. You can hold and contain so much more than you imagine. Waves are washing in, not as obstacles or enemies, but as allies of integration, longing to be met and allowed back into the vastness.

As you return, over and over, into the aliveness of the somatic world, the tangles and the knots will dissolve by love. And all that will remain is a luminous field of awareness, warmth, and creativity. This is what you are.
