Deep Awakening Renewal

Create quickly a “deep awakening renewal”


Use the following process to instantly dissolve fear, stress, worry, resentment, anger, depression, resignation, and so on. Use this process to create a quick, deep, and profound renewal.




  • Set aside 30 uninterrupted minutes for this process.

  • Make sure you are alone or at least have some modicum of privacy.

  • Find a comfortable place to lie on your back.

  • Place a pillow at your side.

  • Find a countdown timer or other alarm device.

  • Dim the lights or have some blinders to shade your eyes.

  • Make sure you have some tissues handy.

  • It’s helpful to have tranquil, relaxing music ready to play to bring you out of the process during the last five minutes.


The Process:

Set the timer on 25 minutes and press “start.”


Sub-process 1: the build-up


  1. Lying on your back, with your arms at your sides, make loose fists with both of your hands.

  2. Start to breathe as deeply as you can, filling up both your chest and your stomach, as you would fill two balloons.

  3. Pull each breath in as deeply as you can.

  4. Then release each breath without forcing the air out.

  5. Breathe at a rate of 20–22 breaths per minute, or one breath every three seconds.

  6. As you take each breath, open one finger of your hand, so that you’re counting the breaths as you open the fingers on your hands.

  7. When you have opened all 10 fingers, then you will have taken 10 breaths.

  8. After the first 10 breaths, make two fists again, repeating the counting process.

  9. As you continue with this process you will probably notice an increasing sense of discomfort and tension in your body.

  10. Allow the tension to build, taking no fewer than 20 breaths and no more than 50 breaths or 2–5 sets of “fist openings."


Sub-process 2: the release


  1. Discontinue the deep breathing.

  2. Take the pillow and press it tightly over your face and mouth, assuming you cannot scream out loud without concern for others.

  3. Scream as loudly as you can into the pillow!

  4. Scream at the top of your lungs!

  5. You can just scream spontaneous sounds or you can scream words.

  6. You can choose your own words.

  7. I also suggest that you experiment with screaming the words listed below to see which phrases work for you.

  8. Create your own variations.

  9. And listen to what you are saying.

  10. The listed order of these phrases is not significant.

  11. For examples with instructions in parentheses, substitute the appropriate word.

  • “Let your spirit fly now!”

  • “Let go of every guilt!”

  • “Let go of all regret!”

  • “Let go of the past!”

  • “Wake up to life now!”

  1. Scream until you’re all screamed out, until there’s nothing more to scream.

  2. Then remove the pillow from your face.

  3. If you need to spit anything out, use a tissue.

  4. Then return to Sub-process 1 (the buildup process).

  5. Repeat Sub-Process 1 and Sub-process 2 until the timer beeps.

  6. Then start the relaxing music and allow the peace of the universe to flow through your body, mind, and spirit.

Cycle through Sub-process 1 and Sub-process 2 for 25 minutes
