The Original (and Only) Separation Anxiety #anxiety #Oneness #yoga

Do you ever feel anxious, nervous, or afraid?  Do you wonder why you feel this way?  I come from a family in which feeling this way, at least sometimes, seemed ‘normal’ growing up.   We had a very rational, Western way of viewing the Universe, and my parents were beautiful, serving, and empowering people of faith, but still, feeling anxious was sometimes part of life.

Having spent nearly 21 years now on this Eastern spiritual path, I have discovered that feeling at peace through meditation is one of the greatest gifts of life!  And when I have lost that feeling of peace, I usually (at my best) turn to what Buddha taught me about the fundamental nature of Reality and the keys to Enlightenment (please see: Mornings with the Masters: Mystical Journeys in a Postmodern World.*)

So, I remember that all is well, which can be challenging to believe sometimes.  And yet, the true inner peace comes not only from acknowledging this, but from remembering Who We Are:  we are one with God, not separate from God.

This is the only and original separation anxiety:  a sense of separation from God.

When we remember that neither we nor anyone we meet is truly separate from God, and that, in fact, the Divine resides within us all as the Knower, the Knowing, and the Known, then we can realize that we have no reason to feel anxious.  The Divine is One with Us All.  And all is well.

When we live from this space of Oneness, less anxiety will occur, especially as we grow in our ability to perceive and to trust this Oneness.  Meditation helps.  Raja Yoga and Kriya Yoga meditation techniques are the best that I have experienced to date.  Mindfulness helps when we are out-and-about, busy with our day, working, interacting, serving, and so on.

May we find the True Oneness that we are, leading to the everlasting Peace Within.  No wonder Christ said that he came to bring Peace!  When we know ourselves as Oneness, there is peace.

May it be so!

Love and Light,

Carol “Anandi”

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
