Overcome Your Fear
Sri Bhagavan of the Oneness University in India teaches any feeling or sensation experienced fully in the present moment will eventually transform into joy. This includes the most challenging situations or intense emotions. This is also the way to overcome your fear.
Robert Tennyson Stevens, Conscious Language also says that any emotion fully felt will turn into its strength, grief into joy, fear into confidence, and pain into love.
When we stop resisting pain and surrender, Divine Grace can enter our bodies. Contraction ends and a flow of energy opens, allowing change and the opportunity to overcome your fear. I have experienced this.
To allow this transformation involves a mastery of staying in the center of a feeling. It means neither going out of body nor drowning in the feeling.
We can understand the above experience better by seeing a surfer in the curve of a big wave, perfectly balanced on his board. He neither gets tossed up into the air nor does he get submerged under tons of water.
It is impossible to stop fear or pain in our lives. When, however, we learn to experience our emotions fully, we take charge of them and also overcome your fear.
When we practice staying present with whatever emotion or pain arises in our bodies and master this, we experience something different, inner stillness. We still have thoughts. Now, however, we accept them without resistance.
Sri Bhagavan calls this experience of inner stillness, bliss, calm, peace. I have felt this peace, for brief minutes, sitting with a group of people going about their activities.
According to Bhagavan with stillness no energy gets lost. Thus, we feel this stillness as calm. We have accepted the reality of our feelings. On the other hand, Bhagavan says when we resist our inner thoughts or feelings this fight uses a lot of energy and we experience pain, suffering, and conflict.
Would you like more joy in your life or to overcome your fear? Practice this meditation daily or at least when intense feelings come up.
The best way out is always through, said the poet Robert Frost. The best way to overcome your fear or any emotion is by:
1. Become aware of them. When we push them away they become stronger.
2. Accept your feelings.
3. Focus on the sensations in your body, however vague.
4. Pick one sensation and stay focused on it.
5. Resist any desire to change what you feel. Allow it to be.
6. Sit and feel the sensations without doing anything to change them.
7. If you start to think about the past or future, come back to feeling the sensations in your body.
8. Stay with the sensation until it transforms on its own without you doing anything. This may take for example, 30 minutes, 3 days, 3 weeks, or 3 months. As you have time keep coming back to the sensation, feeling, or issue until it transforms.
Note: If you have a connection with the Divine you can call Divine Grace or a Divine Being you associate with to assist.

This is part 2 of an interview Katherine Owen, a recovered CFS sufferer, had with Michael David Lawrience when she asked him about how to heal chronic pain, and how to feel safe as a sufferer of chronic fatigue syndrome.
Here is another example from the book The Secret for Freedom from Drama, Trauma, & Pain for treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Paul Davis, an acupuncturist, says, As my spiritual journey progressed, I went through changes in my energy levels. In my early twenties symptoms of chronic fatigue started. For about ten years, I lived with an uneasy balance of chronic fatigue. I suffered a major collapse at thirty in which I could not work for several months. This started me on a study of alternative health leading to certification as an acupuncturist.
In 1994, when I opened up my physical, emotional, and sexual nature, my energy improved. I maintained a good diet and did a lot more exercise over the next few years. In addition, a regime of radionic remedies removed miasmas, low-grade viral infections, parasites, and heavy metals. Several healers, including hands-on healer’s, assisted me in releasing a heavy load of trapped emotion, old agreements, implants, entities, and fear based beliefs.

I am delighted to invite Michael to answer some questions. The answers will be especially relevant to those seeking recovery from ME/CFS – chronic fatigue syndrome – and they speak of alternative approaches we can take generally, both to learn from illness and recover from illness.
Michael and I – Katherine Owen – met in 2010 when we both took part in a spiritual author competition. A group of us spoke regularly on a membership site and became familiar with each others work and approach to life. I was struck by Michael’s integrity and commitment to his work of emotional healing.
I’d like to share with you an interview I had with Michael when I got to ask him about his approach on how to alleviate chronic fatigue, how to heal chronic pain, and how to feel safe as a sufferer of chronic fatigue syndrome. I recovered from CFS after 14 years.

7 Stress Relief Secrets
Have you experienced trauma, upsetting emotions or overwhelming stress? Do you feel disconnected from people or emotionally numb? What can you do for stress relief?
1.) EMBRACE YOUR FEELINGS
Rather than avoiding and pushing feelings away learn to hold and contain, like holding a baby in your arms, whatever pain you feel.
Be present with the sensations in your body without doing anything. Over time your feelings will transform, without any effort.
Be Here Now! Learn the skill of living in the present rather than the past or the future. This is a new way of looking at our internal world and stress relief.
Living in the moment with all our feelings and pain becomes an acquired skill. When we avoid and push our pain away, it remains as an undercurrent of stress in our lives, never healing. Has that method worked for you?
Ekhart Tolle describes in detail in his book The Power of Now how you can develop the ability of living in the now, the present moment. Tolle teaches you how your thoughts and emotions get in the way of living in happiness and peace without suffering.

You may ask what is the difference we experience before spiritual awakening and then after awakening? Basically before spiritual awakening we perceive from separation, after awakening we perceive from a consciousness of unity. In addition, before spiritual awakening, people on a path of consciousness development focus on dissolving unconscious untrue beliefs, negative feelings, and painful memories on a cellular level. After awakening development continues healing remaining patterns.
Another major change occurs in our emotions, people move from emotional reaction to being in a more neutral state. People also experience their personality sense of being a separate dissolving.
Before spiritual awakening, we face our emotional and mental conditioning mirrored back to us through life situations. After spiritual awakening, we face our remaining conditioning, the difference being we now have more awareness and thus the choice to stay in reaction or shift to neutrality.
Spiritual Awakening and Enlightenment is the primary goal of almost all spiritual practices, religions, and for any spiritual seeker.
Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Michael when I got to ask him about the topic of Spiritual Awakening. I hope you enjoy it.
Irene Conlan – Self-Improvement Show: What is the phenomenon of Spiritual Awakening sweeping the planet?
Michael: Some people will say they have no interest in spirituality, yet I will show that this significant occurrence of spiritual awakening affects everyone.
Spiritual awakening refers to the dissolving of the illusion of our separation from life. This feeling of separateness lies at the root of our suffering.
