SEVEN LESSONS IN OVERCOMING OUR FEARS
"Fear is not the enemy unless you fail to conquer it."
Santi's new book, "The Obsidian Trials, Seven Spiritual Lessons for Overcoming Our Fears"
The book is a modern day spiritual adventure documenting my journey of discovery from the glitter of Hollywood, to the teachings of Edgar Cayce, which led me, in 1981, to the Great Pyramid of Giza. What happened there would change my life forever, including my relationship to fear and the challenges that life presents to all of us. The teachings that were revealed to me during my journey are universal in nature, and speak to the very heart of addiction, compulsion and the internal struggle that many of us have between the light and the darkness. This workshop is based on these 7 lessons for overcoming fears. This workshop explores our relationship with our fears on a body, mind and spirit level teaching us to identify the lessons in our fears rather than reacting to the fear and having that cripple us.

THE OBSIDIAN TRIALS Seven Spiritual Steps For Overcoming Our Fears

Outer Directed Trials Trial One: Surrendering all forms of desire to God, Addiction, self -will, co-dependency- God must be loved more than the offerings of the ego.

The Second Trial: The fear of loss of all your worldly possessions.
Loss appears real and we try to protect ourselves by worrying and controlling. Your relationship to ownership is the lesson. A grateful heart recognizes God's grace- You cannot lose what is rightfully yours.

The Third Trial: Non-attachment to the transitorv Objects of the world.
The self wrestles with the fear of change and its resistance to the impermanent nature of the physical world. To squelch feeling of powerlessness it attempts to control its environment. A prisoner of meager possessions it struggles with the world of opposites.

The first three lessons all deal with the surrender of desire, loss, change and control, which in fact is the freedom of letting go and letting God

Inner Directed Trials

The Fourth Trial: To be of one mind with God. free from the personal will of: the es:o.
At this juncture the self begins to be more controlled by its spiritual nature and less by human nature. Pivital part of journey, now the journey is to the core of the soul. Here the self seeks out any darkness that has attached itself at any point in time. The soul's wounds, not the ego's surface(the pit of darkness).

The Fifth Trial: Surrendering all soul to God without reservation.
When you hold to your pain and identity with it, you make it more powerful and thus deepen your soul's wounds. This separates you from God, and you feel lost and comfortless. You can experience pain, but don't attach to it. Pain is simply pain, not a matter of who you are or what you deserve based on feelings of shame, guilt & inadequacy.

The Sixth Trial: To be fearless and forgive in all circumstances.
Justifiable anger and pain is hard to give up. You can use it to manipulate, to feel superior or to make others feel guilty. Self- pity, judgment and hate block the grace of God. When you surrender your pain and abuse you release your identity to it and forgiveness can begin to be truly understood.

The Seventh Trial: Surrendering all that you love. including your body and your mind. to the life and death circles of God's creation.
Understanding that the word of God is always loving and abundant regardless of our perception.
Seeing beyond appearances of the ego to the truth of God None of the trials can be accomplished until you recognize that God is the center of your being and His benevolence your birthright.

Beloved Beast

Teach me the soulful dance of quiet,
unconditional love.
The heart rhythm that heals all pain.

Teach me the hawk's winged fancy that lets go freely to the whims of the mighty wind.

Teach me to fill my heart completely holding nothing back even if bursting and broken it comes to be.

Teach me to be more like you, old, gentle beast As wise as any I've ever known.

Teach me to mourn you proudly
with dignity and honor.
To model your sphinx-like grace
that heaven's gate will now adorn.

Teach me to trust that love does not end with death,
And that you will run to greet me when
I pass through the veil.

– Santi Meunier, Summer, 1996
For Tosha, my teacher and faithful companion.
