The magic of your own heart
It’s so natural to want to alleviate disturbing feelings,
transform difficult emotions, and heal unexplainable somatic manifestations.
This yearning need not be pathologized, but held in spacious awareness. Honor
the longing for relief, while simultaneously opening into the mystery.
Before you turn from the symptom, enter into relationship
with it. Practice intimate communion with the signs, the symbols, the images,
and the feelings. Travel into the center of the sensations, the emotions,
and the ancient core beliefs. Drop inside the vulnerability, the achiness, the
claustrophobia, and sink into the hot, sticky surging field of the inner world,
illuminating the pathways with the light of awareness.
Remember the vow you once made to no longer abandon what

in infinite forms in order to remind you of what is truly happening here in
this lonely, luminous star.
There is seen and unseen guidance all around you, though it
may never look quite like you imagined. Inside your body is consecrated and
outrageous intelligence. In this sense, healing is not found in the removal of
the symptom, but in the intimate union with it.
The freedom you are longing for

transmuting love and information it carries.
