Taken from the Akashic Readings on Death by Kaalabhairava through Nithyananda on 29th September, 2012
Every fear you accumulate, every fear makes you feel agitated, every fear which you do not want to think, remember, go through, go into all those fears consciously, neither deciding to save yourself from that fear nor having greed to achieve what you are afraid of. So without having the greed or fear, enter into the fear. Naturally the fear will lose its quality of fear when you do not carry fear or greed for the fear. Greed has its quality of greed because of your greed for greed and fear about the greed. Same way the fear has the quality of fear because of your fear for the fear and indirect greed towards the fear.
So when your fears are approached with fearlessness and greed-lessness, the straightening out of your consciousness everyday happens. The change of consciousness from jagrat to swapna, swapna to sushupti, the waking state to dream state and dream state to the deep sleep state, happens because your awareness is not straightened out.
Either the bumps of the fear or bumps of the greed are responsible for your consciousness jumping from waking state to dream state or dream state to deep sleep state. If you remove all the bumps of the fear before falling asleep you will not fall asleep, you will fall into something called restful awareness which is recorded by the word turiya by the earlier mantra drashtas (Evolved ones who perceive the mantras through visualization). So the word “turiya” denotes the state of falling into the restful awareness without the bumps of fear or greed. Every night remove all the bumps you created during your daytime through fear or greed. Continuous practice of removing all the bumps of fear and greed by facing them will help you to fall into the state of turiya. This is what Mahadeva calls as death process – nirbhaya dhyana.
