    I have already posted how I have followed the courses with trust to the letter. Something amazing happened yesterday that I had to savour and keep to myself for a little while. Although I have experienced lovely feelings of deep relaxation, weightlessness, joy and peace, there are often times when my mind has been full of thoughts and sometimes I have felt irritable and uncomfortable. A couple of months ago I began to simply observe the feelings of discomfort and although it's hard for me to describe I realized that I had a lot of fear and anger which I obviously supressed really well, even to myself. I remembered and re-experienced the death of my mother during LifeFlow quite some time ago and although I shed many tears during lifeflow meditation it seemed a really healthy grieving process and it wasn't painful at all. In fact it felt like a really nice kind of release. I observe and am aware of many more feelings both during meditation and outside of it. I think this is what Michael talks about in his report on resistance. I understand now that when I have felt irritable and discomfort during meditation I have been resisting and supressing certain things I did not want to deal with. By observing and not resisting, I feel a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Everything seems to simply becoming clearer and clearer. Yesterday the most incredible thing happened whilst I was doing the gratitude exercise after meditation. 24 years ago my mother died very suddenly at my home, it was traumatic for me but I had to keep it together and for my young children. For over 20 years I have been unable to remember what it felt like to receive a hug from my mum (yet I can clearly remember my dad giving me a hug) Yesterday, after a deep meditation I was lieing quietly with eyes closed, happily listening to the gratitude music and thinking of things I am truly thankful for and then I experienced the most wonderful hug from my mum. Tears of joy ran onto my pillow and I could have stayed there forever. It was like a miracle and today I can clearly remember what a hug off my mum feels like. I'm on cloud nine!! I just wanted to share this with you because I'm sure you have many wonderful experiences ahead of you if you are persistant and follow Michael's instructions as I have for almost a year now. Happiness and joy to you all :) :) :)
