The Amazing Secret To Releasing Success

Let me tell you a personal story to explain the how and why of releasing success.

Last night I was socialising with friends. And my ex partner. We often meet as friends which is a complex emotional situation. More so for me than for her!

Without going into the gory details I caught here lying and deceiving my friends and I i.e. basically saying she was going home, and then driving home before going out again with a guy she bumped into with us, once we had disappeared.

That´s the short version of the story. The point is, I felt angry and let down. Has she been lying to my face for the last five years? Does she have so little respect for me that she invites me to go out and then dumps me as soon as she finds an alternative?

Anyway....

I go home and phone one of my best friends. He says all the right stuff to me and reaffirms my belief in how great I am!

Beforehand, I text her a message of annoyance on my mobile phone. Mature eh?!

Then I spent a sleepless night releasing and drinking water. By the time the sun rose I no longer felt angry. I felt lighter, more at peace and accepting of what did happen instead of resisting it (I can´t believe she did that!)

I got up and walked down the street to go to the grocery shop and I was surprised at how good I felt. I smiled at myself - secretly amazed at how good I could feel after the painful events of last night.

I just spent the last two hours releasing on my ex partner - clean up process. I feel light, happy and in charge of what happens - not a victim of circumstances. I feel love for her even though I do not love her behaviour.

Without releasing I would probably have spent the next two weeks in emotional agony and another two weeks feeling numb and weak.

The big secret - release, release and then release some more. I have asked several Sedona Method trainers the secret to success with releasing. they all gave me the very same answer - release, release, release.

Use this amazing technology of the soul to make your life wonderful. Start right here, right now.

Sedona Method and Prosperity

You now know how to manifest prosperity. i.e. know what you really want, commit to releasing and keep letting go over time.

Keep doing what works and stop doing what does not work!

Let me explain...

I had great fun reading 10 year old journals of mine this week. Very funny reading what I was thinking, doing and struggling with.

One pattern I repeated again and again...

Do lots of personal growth work - achieve a desired goal - stop using personal growth tools or techniques - life disimproves over time - do lots of personal growth work ----

I have seen this pattern in close friends too. I´m sure most people here can relate to this dynamic.

What to do....

Understand that we slide back to our default settings on reality or back to new higher settings unless we continue to energise our desired reality - the consciously created world we live in.

I strongly recommend goal setting - go and get all the stuff, love, happiness, success and joy that you want. Contribute to others and make your life fantastic.

Along the way, as you let go, you will get closer and closer to freedom.

Sometimes spiritual seekers think having any desires is in some way negative, inappropriate and a distraction. So they deny those desires i.e. suppress them.

There is nothing spiritual about being dishonest with yourself.

What would happen if instead you let go of the desires? You would make much more progress in a spiritual sense and maybe even enjoy the journey a little more. And if you do not want what you manifest give it to others. Easy solution!

Letting Go Of Resistance

Do you release on a particular goal once and then move onto something else?

Goal manifestation requires ongoing energy. Larry Crane recommends releasing to completion on a goal and then checking in each day to see if you are still hootless about the goal.

Very often you will find yourself back in a state of wanting. You then need to release a lttle more to regain that hootless state. Repeat again the next day if required ... and so on.

I find that I usually have a great deal of resistance to having what I want - even for things I really, really want. A useful goals check is to ask yourself: do I have any resistance to having this?

If you have, and very often you will have a lot of resistance to let go of, you will have confirmation of how you are not creating what you want i.e. how you are stopping yourself from having the goal.

The more you make releasing an aspect of how you live the better your results will be. Releasing can be treated as something you turn to from time to time or as part of who you are and how you live.

When you decide to live in that way you release to release, to have more freedom, and it gets easier to achieve any goal because you are not releasing to get the goal itself.

To sum up, release to get hootless on your goals, check in daily and release more to stay hootless and allow releasing to become the way you operate in the world. You may well be astonished by how quickly things will then change.

How the Sedona Method Works To Achieve Goals

First of all, sedona method fans. Ready to achieve your goals?

Let us look at how not to release...

1. Attempt to let go to get something in order to feel better
2. Try to release on a goal to attain the goal
3. Release now and again if you remember to
4. Now contrast the above outlook with -

How to release with the sedona method to achieve your goals...

Let go of limiting feelings to feel more inner peace and then it is far easier to attain your desires.

Let go of wanting a goal in order to have it in your life. Release to be free, to be hootless and hold that intention in mind until you are free of wanting the goal.
Release daily, the more you do it the easier it gets and the faster you will make progress.

Choose a releasing approach that works for you. You do not have to use could you, would you unless you want to. Diving in and welcoming the feeling are both very effective and may even be much more effective for you.

Release feelings rather than thoughts. Why? Because as Lester said we have millions of thoughts, many of which we are unaware of. You may never get around to letting them all go. However you have far fewer limiting emotional states and patterns that you can and will drop if you apply yourself. In this way you can drop clusters of thoughts at once.

At the end of the day, releasing is a very unusual way to be in the world when so few people live in this way. Consequently you have a choice to make...

Go back to your old way of being or give releasing 100% and test it for yourself.

Decide for yourself if any of my tips are true for you. If releasing does not resonate with you then move on.

If you can suspend your disbelief long enough to follow the releasing instructions to the letter you may well be pleasantly surprised at the results it brings you.

Yes, follow the exact instructions - do not add or take away any of the steps. You cannot adapt, improve or customise an approach until you have made it work for you at the basic level. You can do that later on if you really want to.

If it is all "too far out" for you then don´t spend anymore time on it - go and find something more traditional and straightforward that is right for you.

Sedona Method and making Money

Want to get more money by using the sedona method?

Sometimes people want more money, financial freedom first before they develop themselves. That is not how the sedona method works!

You´ve got it the wrong way around - success is an inside job!

You need to create an inner sense of securiity first before you create it in the outside world. And just so you know - money is not security its only pieces of paper!

I´m not joking - having more money can leave you feeling less secure unless you create inner security. Otherwise, worrying about how much you have to lose will dominate your thinking.

If you are releasing to get money you´re not releasing at all - you are actually reinforcing your lust for money and pushing it away. Releasing is about letting go of what you want to that you allow it in.

Develop yourself now, be creative now - use the challenges before you to grow. You have a perfect environment for using releasing - if you had no challenges you´d not have so much potential for growth presented to you on a plate before you.

How To Have Success with the Sedona Method

A few thoughts on how to have success with the Sedona Method...

1. Most of what is going on in your life today is a result of your thoughts and actions over a lifetime leading up to this point. Give the Sedona Method time to work and for you to work it.

2. Everything of value you knew before the Sedona Method still applies e.g. exercising and good diet are good for you, treat people well even if its up to them to let go of your behaviour.

3. Set short-term small goals to assess your progress. You´ll find out within days or weeks if you are actually releasing. You may think you are releasing when in fact you are not. The Sedona Method is subtle.

4. When we do let go of limitations it can result in significant changes in our environment. We wake up to the way we are living and decide not to continue living in a way that is not good for us. A new job, new people and/or a new lifestyle can emerge.

All in all for from the sound of it you are equating releasing with not doing i.e. create what you want in your mind and take little or no action in the world.

Sedona Method success equals releasing and action.

That is fine for a realised master. I´m not there yet, are you? For the rest of us we will have much better results by acting and releasing on our goals.

Sedona Method and Success

Is there a secret to success with the sedona method?

Don´t think that others here know it all. Releasing and having success with the sedona method is very simple if we would only keep it simple!You may already know more than you realise!

My favourite line on this is from Lester Levenson: "I only know what I can do!"

So, just keep letting go and you´ll have more and more of those happy coincidences.

The sedona method will become second nature before you know it and you will success after success.

Sedona Method and How to Let Go

Here is a tip I wrote for a friend about the Sedona Method and How to Let Go.

Why? Because we often focus on the wrong thing when we want to use the Sedona Method to let go............


That is a good question and an experience that I expect we all have at times or even most of the time when using the Sedona Method to let go.

It sounds like you are releasing to feel good. i.e. releasing to get something. And this is not how releasing works. We need to release to let go of wanting the goal itself..

So, release to release. Just let go to let go. Ironically when you do this things come your way and you will feel good. The idea is to let the limiting feelings go and when they have left all you will have is peace.

When we release with the intention of achieving a goal we are reinforcing the attachment to the goal. Part of you is actively holding onto the goal even as you pretend to let it go!

Instead, release with the intention of letting go of the goal - only then will get to the hootless state. And that feels great.

Finally, you might like to play with changing the feeling to love. Notice whatever feeling is present and ask yourself:

Could I change this feeling to love?

Sedona Method and Happiness

Sedona Method and Happiness- How much pleasure can you handle?

What if you could feel wonderfully happy even though your life isn´t perfect yet? Well you can. If you choose to!

Three suggestions for you:

1. Release on an issue which has nothing to do with money. Do this just to feel great - because when you go high you can release with greater ease on stuck issues such as money. Then, and only then, release on money.

2. Love yourself anyway even if you don´t have all the pieces of paper and metal you want or need.

3. Release to let go... not to get something. Otherwise you are building the attachments and aversions - and not releasing at all.
When you want something with intensity you are in a state of lust - in that state of mind it is very difficult to think straight. That is why when we release we can think more clearly and find novel solutions. So release and move up the scale of emotions.

Waiting until everything is absolutely perfect before you feel happy is certainly one approach however how many splt second moments have you ever had like that? Not many!

And yes being happy is also very practical - people want to be around happy people and when you infect others with your happiness they will do all that they can to help you.

Be happy even if everything isn´t perfect yet!

“I have looked into other methods of stress management before finding The Sedona Method, but have not discovered anything else so simple, powerful and rapidly effective. It is very exciting to observe changes occurring quite quickly which are clearly the result of releasing. The most appealing feature of the Method for me is that no belief system is imposed and people can use it completely on their own with great success.”…Dr. Louis Ormont, Professor of Psychology at Adelphi University

"During a break on Dynasty, I decided to take part in The Sedona Method course. I was suffering from several stressful situations in my personal life, so I went to see if the Method really worked.

Joan Collins, Star of Dynasty and author of the book, "My Secrets"

Sedona Method Testimonial 3:

“I have in the past been given to somewhat hysterical types of reactions, in that I was quick to judge and often quick to anger. I now find myself much more in the present moment, much more able to just relax and have that sense of calm and peace. The more I experience the calm that the Sedona Method has helped me with, the easier it is to become aware of those reactions early on and just let go and not let things fester.”…C.D., Walla Walla, WA

Larry Crane and The Release Technique - Success

FROM: Larry Crane of The Release Technique

I am writing to notify you about a development that I believe
is the greatest advancement in the history of behavioral
science.

It is a way to dramatically show you how to have a constant
winning attitude, all the time, in anything you do. It is not
motivational psychology, physical therapy, positive thinking,
subliminal programming, meditation, or anything like that.

A few years ago, I started to teach my success system with
others, just like you, on how to succeed in the game of life.
Since then, hundreds of people have attended live courses
taught around the country.

I have kept in contact with many of the Graduates who
attended. The results have been Phenomenal!

Many graduates have doubled and tripled their income, became a
partner with their employer, climbed the corporate ladder,
retired wealthy, gained a competitive edge, taken charge of
their lives, overcome serious problems, gotten a clear
direction in life.

They have gone into business for themselves and are doing
spectacularly well! They have moved into brand new homes and
have gotten better jobs, become healthier.

The momentum has been wonderful and it’’s spreading. It is my
intent to have you be successful in everything you do in life!

Now become a winner in the game of life

For years I kept looking and looking for the answers, then I
met a remarkable man. That meeting changed my life forever. He
told me, "You have no limits except those you hold on to in
your mind and when you let go of these limits you can have, do
or be whatever you desire."

At that time it sounded great but I thought "how could this be
true?" I decided to prove it out for myself.

So, I sat down and examined my thinking; I made a list of
everything in life that I wanted.

The list of wants was long and I noticed the things I wanted
were everything I didn’t have. How could I correct my
thinking? I was holding in mind all these limitations.

At the top of my list of wants was being a great success in
life. I wanted money and lots of it. Yet, I was working six
days a week, 12-hour days and barely feeding my family. I was
busy working instead of have a life.

I then made a list of all the reasons why I wasn’’t achieving
the success that I felt I deserved. The list was long. I felt
guilty, angry, confused, fearful, apathetic, and I felt a lot
of insecurity.

The answers came to me...

It was like somebody hit me over the head with a baseball bat.
For the first time in my life I realized that...

. . . It was my own negative emotions that were actually
stopping me from achieving the success that I wanted.

So, I decided to see if I could rid myself of these limited
thoughts and feelings that were keeping me from attaining
success in life.

To my amazement, I discovered that I had a natural ability to
release these limiting thoughts and feelings. I was able to
rid myself of guilt, fear, beating myself up, confusion,
apathy, poor self image, my lack of self-confidence,
insecurity and more.

The systems works and it's simple

The system was so simple I wondered if anyone would believe
me. So I decided to prove to the world that I could use the
system to make a bundle of money.

A short time later I became a self-made millionaire, my
relations started to work, I met and married the most
gorgeous gal.

I bought a ten-room penthouse in Manhattan, a 160 acre ranch
in Arizona and everything I turned to became successful with
ease and most of all, I became the embodiment of unchangeable
peace and happiness.

It's easy to show you how to have abundance because the
ability to have abundance is already there, in you.

Over 50,000 other people have already proven this out. In
fact, until recently all the people that we’’ve helped have
come to us through word of mouth. Can you imagine
thousands of people coming to you by word of mouth only?

After scientifically proving that this system works for
everyone who learns it, my only wish is to have as many people
as possible learn how to have abundance with ease.

A System Scientifically Verified by Harvard and Columbia
University Researchers...

Researchers Dr. David McClelland of Harvard University and Dr.
Richard Davidson of the State University of New York have
found "The Release Technique stands out far beyond
the rest for its simplicity, efficiency, absence of
questionable concepts and rapidity of observable results."

Read what practicing psychiatrist John L. Kemeny, M.D., and
former associate of Albert Einstein and retired professor at
New York's Columbia University said:

The Release Technique is a profound breakthrough in the
history of behavioral science. The Release Technique liberates
the subconscious mind and allows one to rid themselves of
negativity at any level.

The work that Larry Crane is teaching is a major breakthrough
in the field of behavioral science. By participating
experientially, you will reach a place where
nothing and no one will ever bother you again.

A place where you can eliminate all of your I can'ts and turn
them into I can's. I have used the Release Technique myself
for over 20 years successfully. I highly recommend it to
anyone who wants to overcome their limitations and lower their
stress level with ease.

Have Fun,

Peter

P.S. Here is what one Release Technique graduate had to say:

I think it is becoming evident, in my observation, that the
techniques learned in the program were beneficial to people
who work under the stress and strain that we do in the
investment banking industry. I have personally benefited,
especially when I ran in the New York City Marathon shortly
after an illness.

How the Sedona Method works

The way releasing with the sedona method works still surprises me some times.

A few weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon I released for an hour on happiness using this polarity:

Welcome resistance to being happy
Welcome resistance to being unhappy

After I finished the session I felt very happy and very energetic with a wonderful sense of peace. And to my surprise I spent the next three hours tidying up part of the house I let become chaotic over the last five years.

In the past my fear would have been that if I get "too" happy I will get lazy and waste my life. I still need to remind myself that I am a human being and not a human doing!

Releasing changes the quality of your experience - you can do from a state of lack and unease or you can do from a state of happiness. And the more you release the clearer you get on what you do want to do and on what you really do not want to do. You can then eliminate a lot of unimportant activity.

Lester Levenson on Happiness with the Sedona Method

What is the one thing you want more than anything else for the
people you love the most? If you had a magic wand what would you
grant your family and friends? What is it that everyone wants?

To be happy!

How can you make other people happy until you are happy? How can
you be happy?

Lester Levenson, creator of The Sedona Method, discovered the key
to happiness. He searched for 47 years and nearly died in the
process but he did find it.

Do you want to know what it is?

Lester had a breakthrough after much soul searching and found out
how to be happy only after reviewing his entire life. He spotted
a common pattern, one that was present in every happy moment.

Whenever he was feeling love towards another person he felt happy.
And whenever he felt any other feeling he was not happy.

Test this principle for yourself. Think of a time when you were
blissfully happy. Did you feel loving at that time? This works for
me every time. Is this easy or what? Simply amazing!

If this sounds too simple to work I know that you have not tested
it for yourself. Turning on a light bulb is easy too only because
someone else figured it out!

- who do I love most in my life?
- what do I love most about myself?
- what things do I love most in my life?

After doing this exercise you will feel much happier. And you
will have done it without having to spend any money on expensive
clothes, cars or holidays!

The Dalai Lama teaches that the purpose of life is to be happy.
Go on and live a life of purpose with your family and friends!

Who was Lester Levenson? Sedona Method Founder...

People wonder who Lester Levenson was? Was Lester an ordinary man who had an extraordinary life? Or maybe Lester Levenson was an extraordinary man all along!

Read this extract from the release technique site to find out...

(I added my comments in brackets.)

Lester Levenson was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey, on July 19, 1909, to Jewish emigrant parents.

He grew up much loved, doted on by his parents and three sisters. Yet his predominant characteristic was shyness. He was extremely withdrawn and introspective, constantly wondering what this life was about. His parents were not really religious but his grandfathers on both sides were holy people, rabbis. Lester Levenson was 21 when his beloved mother and father died. He refused to say the prayer for the dead. "Will that bring them back? If it does, I'll say it." Then defiantly he turned away from God.

(so Lester was really like most of us, an ordinary childhood with the typical challenges, ups and downs, and a good background.)

Lester Levenson sailed through school and college with astonishing ease, becoming a physicist, an engineer, a successful businessman and a self-made millionaire. Yet despite all his achievements there was an innate turmoil in his heart, an anxiety and stress that seemed to rule his life.

(we can all relate to the stress and pressure we take on as we get older, thankfully Lester found the answer to this age old challenge)

In 1952, at the age of 42, Lester Levenson had his second massive heart attack. In those days, they did not have bypass surgery or heart transplants and so when he came out of the emergency room, the doctors told him, "Lester, we're sorry to tell you, but you have two weeks to live, three at the most, and we can't do anything for you. So we're sending you home."

So Lester Levenson went home.

He was extremely fearful of dying, but he said to himself, "You're still breathing, Lester; there is still a chance." Then he sat down and began thinking around-the-clock. He had always been considered a brilliant man. Always on the honor roll. The recipient of a four-year scholarship to Rutgers University back in the days when few scholarships were handed out. But he said to himself, "Lester, you are stupid, stupid, stupid! All this accumulated knowledge, all this intellect has gotten you to the place that you're a dead man! And if you don't uncover what's in the way, eliminate it, you're going to die!"

(at this point how many of us would give up and assume the game is over. Lester had some serious motivation though - if he could figure it out he might continue to live - a very big reason to try!)

Being a physicist, he knew he had to go back to the drawing board, wipe the slate clean, and start from point zero. So he started to examine his life. He noticed that each time he was ill he was wanting something and that the intense wanting feelings were what was actually making him miserable. He wanted love, he wanted money, he wanted to change things, and every time he looked at that wanting, he had an uncomfortable feeling that he traced back to his illness. Then he noticed that whenever he was giving and loving and wasn't wanting anything, he was not ill. So, he asked himself, "Well, if I could get rid of all my non-loving feelings, would I get better?" He thought about this question and uncovered something that was startling to him at the time.

(Lester Levenson was on the verge of the breakthrough here)

He noticed that WHEN HE WAS LOVING he was happiest. That happiness equated to being loving rather than being loved.

That was a starting point. He asked himself if he could cure his illnesses this way. So, he began directing all of his thoughts and feelings in that direction—from that of "wanting to be loved," to that of "loving." He examined all his relationships and he let go of all of his non-loving feelings from the past. In that process he made another shocking discovery: He saw that he wanted to change the entire world and that was the cause of all his ailments, making him a slave to this world. He decided to reverse that by actually unloading the subconscious concepts and pressures and by taking responsibility for everything happening in his life. At this point he discovered that limitations were only concepts in our minds and can easily be dropped. He realized that God is within us all, that we are infinite beings with no limitations. With that realization, he became happier: freer, lighter and with an overall sense of well-being.

(imagine that - the secret to happiness, where else has it been explained at all? Where else has it been explained in such simple terms: See how attainable it really is!)

Later on he would say: "We are all gods acting like goddamned fools."

Months went by and Lester Levenson still wasn't dead. He hardly went to sleep, he ate a little bit, and he continued to work on himself. He corrected his physical body. All of his miseries dropped away and he found himself in a place in which he was happy all the time, without sorrow. He totally cured himself.

More than that, Lester Levenson unlocked the science of the mind: How the mind works, what to do about it and how to correct it. How to correct your thinking. How to call up the menu of your mind, take a look at this menu and eliminate what you don't want.

Lester Levenson was a giving person—one thousand percent! He spent the remainder of his life helping others discover this secret that he had unlocked for himself.

He passed on in 1994 at the age of 84— 42 years after being told he had two to three weeks to live!

Goal Manifestation with the Sedona Method

How can you manifest your goals more quickly and easily?

When you hold the goal vividly in mind you can create it FAST. Of course make sure to let go completely until you feel hootless.

Now, start small.

Bigger goals typically have more limitations for you to let go of. Otherwise you´d already have them. When you start small you´ll have validation that releasing does work and your belief system will change and at this point it is easier to aim higher.

Release to manifest $1, release to make one great new friend, release to feel a little happier, release to release!

Could it get any better?

Getting What You Want With The Release Technique

1. Re Larry Crane and 20 days to get what you want.

He says to check in and make sure you are hootless each day re the goal and if not go ahead and release to completion.

Keep releasing until you feel carefree and love re the goal. i.e. carefree rather than not caring.

2. I favour highly specific goals.

Why?

Because you are likely to get what you ask for - no more and no better.

Remember the posts recently about releasing to get a job. The person got one and doesn´t like it. http://groups.msn.com/TheSedonaMethodreleasingClub/

Ask for more! Not a job but a job you love and that pays $´000 or better.

So re finding a husband - ask for what you really want to ensure you don´t get what you don´t want.

3. Too many goals at once.

For me I would not make any progrees having such a long list of goals to release on at once. Maybe that will work for you.

It´s good to be aware of all that you want and maybe focus on one or two special goals for the moment.

4. Attaining your goals with no action on your part.

I believ it is possible when you become very advanced with releasing. I have had small and significant instances of it happening for me. Most of the time however I actually take action as well to get what I want.

Usually releasing allows me to think new and original thoughts that lead me to creative solutions and breakthroughs. I then act from a heightened sense of intuition with a very good sense of what needs to be done.

A Letter from Lester Levenson...at age 84

Almost forty years ago with my back to the wall and with only three months to live, I was forced to search for the answers to life. I decided to ask myself what it is we all want, and the answer came to me. We all want to be happy!

I had spent my entire life, looking for happiness and security in making money, having personal relationships and keeping busy. But, I only achieved happiness for short periods of time. Somehow happiness still eluded me.

I wondered, how could I get all the things I want and be happy all the time, too?

Most of the great philosophers have told us that our basic inherent nature is happiness. So what is it that happens that causes us to lose what is already ours? The answer is: Our feelings cover up our happiness and keep it hidden from us.

The key to securing the happiness that is yours . . . forever . . . is to discover how to discharge the negative feelings you've accumulated. By discharging these negative feelings, you will not only increase the happiness in your life, but everything else will get better too! Money, health, relationships, looks, you name it!

It's so simple and it’s the one answer you've been looking for.

Please give us the opportunity to share this with you. You have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING TO GAIN.

Love,
Lester

Larry Crane - Release Technique Story: What would it be like if you were unable to worry?

Larry Crane - Release Technique Story...

Imagine feeling secure about the future and looking forward
to it with an excitement you have not felt since you were a
child. (This is the Larry Crane - Release Technique Story)

What I am going to talk about today is not for everyone...

It is true, the Release Technique Story of Larry Crane.

If you are open minded and of at least average intelligence
the following information could lead you to the most
important breakthrough of your entire life....

If you are as busy as me -- you know that making your life
better sometimes takes a back seat to dealing with that
never ending list of things to do that never gets done.

This is why as the UPS driver handed me the package and as
I signed his electonic pad -- I honestly did not know when
I would get a chance to listen to the potentially life
changing information I now held in my hands.

Later that evening...

I switched off the PC, ignored the TV and the phone... and
ripped open the first set of tapes.

Although some of what I listened to was familiar -- a lot
of it was totally different to anything I have ever heard.

This course produced by Larry Crane, a self made
millionaire, offers a new and refreshing alternative to
getting what you want whether that be greater happiness,
more confidence or greater success... and it works.

But first.

Let me tell you about Larry...

Larry was a very successful business man. He was
written up in the business press, including TIME magazine,
and made millions for himself.

And he had the luxury cars and planes, an expensive home and
he could buy whatever he wanted.

But.

He was extremely unhappy. In fact he was miserable and
hated his life. And he was angry and totally stressed out.

One night he even considered jumping off the roof terrace
of his 10 room Manhattan penthouse apartment. For about two
hours he contemplated jumping.

He didn´t.

This was a TURNING POINT and put him on a search for a way
to succeed and be happy without feeling stressed out,
worried and anxious.

His quest lead him to Lester Levenson and The Release
Technique...

http://www.workwealth.com/rt.htm


Let me tell you what I have gained already from listening
to this unusual course:


What Have I got from the Release Technique?


1. I Stopped Worrying

Like most people I have a knack for worrying about what
might go wrong. Even though I make a point of being
positive.

I can still have a few worrying thoughts working away in
the back of my mind that stop me from feeling total peace
of mind.

After listening to tape 4B its as if my worrying program
has short circuited. I feel secure about the future in a
way I never have before.

All of that negative thinking that used to tire me out and
leave me feeling anxious has evaporated.

And if I want to give this new state of mind even more
energy I can simply listen to this tape again anytime I
want.


2. I Feel Happier.

Even after listening to the first 5 tapes of this 10 tape
package I felt happier. All I did was follow along and do
the exercises under Larry´s guidance and things started to
feel different.

I feel lighter and more at ease with myself.

I notice myself smiling for no reason whatsoever. And when
you think about it shouldn´t this be true for all of us.


3. Problems Seem Less of a Challenge

Problems don´t seem so overwhelming and I have a new sense
of possibility. Whatever I put my mind to I can achieve.

I can think more clearly and find new and better solutions
to whatever challenges I am facing. This alone has given me
a whole new sense of what is possible.


4. I Approve of Myself More

I already knew that when it comes to having more success
that money does not motivate me once I have enough.

After completing the course it hit me. What I really want
by succeeding is the approval and respect of my role models.

And ironically this craving approval stops me from giving
100% Why? Because I am afraid I won´t get it.

The solution? Let go of wanting this approval.

I have been doing this for the past two days and I have had
the most productive week I have had in months and with less
EFFORT. It feels like I am in the flow...

I am making better decisions, taking less time to get
things done and not holding back when it comes to really
excelling with my work.

Imagine feeling like this every day!


You can...

Take a look at the Release Technique site and see what you
think.

Sedona Method Polarities

Over the weekend I was thinking about how I always seem to want more. I learn some great material like releasing and then I immediately want more results, more peace, and even more flashes of insight. It´s never enough!

So, inspired by the recent discussions on polarities and holistic releasing, I decided to create a set of polarities to deal with this. Here´s what I came up with:

Greed - Gratitude

Could you allow yourself to be as greedy as you are?
Could you allow yourself to be as grateful as you are?

Could you allow yourself to feel as much greed as you do?
Could you allow yourself to feel as much gratitude as you do?


I released on these polarities a lot over the weekend, and even as I type this there is more to release so I seem to have found a really charged issue.

What do you think? Even if the opposite of greed is not gratitude I decided to go ahead in the manner described above because it resonated for me.


Which would you rather - more freedom or more restriction?

Peter

Sedona Method As Part Of Your Daily Life

How to integrate releasing into your day...

Here is what I do.

1) Release specifically on going all the way with the Sedona Method i.e. let go of internal controls by the Ego that dictate whether and /or how you attain realisation.

2) When you wake up in the morning, while in that waking state, ask yourself :

Could you just allow yourself to feel what you are feeling?

Could you allow wanting control/security/approval to be completely present?

By starting the day in this way, I find it easier to maintain the momentum during the day.

3) During various activities as the day progresses, pay attention to how you feel in your body especially in your chest and stomach where relaxation or tension can often be detected more easily than elsewhere in the body.

Then just allow the feelings to be present, and let it go until you release to completion.

4) Read related material by spiritual masters. I have recently read Yogananda´s autobiography. He teached the same essential message that Lester Levenson taught i.e. this world is nothing more than a dream that we have not awakened from. And we can transcend it if we are disciplined and have the desire to do so.

Reading the thoughts of these masters stengthens my resolve to continue releasing for the long term. Yogananda used to meditate for hour upon hour everyday. That level of dedication is possible for us too if we are prepared to pay the price.

I think it is unreasonable to expect much from any spiritual or personal development philosophy unless you commit 100% to using it and making it part of who you are.

In my opinion, people who become seminar junkies are avoiding themselves, they choose to live in hope rather than living in the present moment. It takes courage to go all the way with the Sedona Method. What if you don´t get anywhere? What if it´s not what it claims to be? Let go of your fears and go all the way. Use the Method to make the most of the Method!

Anyone else with ideas? Please feel free to share what works for you. What works best for you in integrating the Method into your daily life?

Which do you prefer becoming free or the fantasy of being free?

Peter

Sedona Method for Happiness and Goal Attainment

I use releasing as a tool to enjoy my life more and to get what I want in the world. I find that the more I allow my BEingness to just be, the happier I am and the easier the game of life seems to be. And a growing feeling of oneness and love for all of life comes from somewhere inside of me. As well the sense of seperation from other people fades which is why for me the unrestrained ego is useful but only goes so far.When I am cultivating Ego I have a real sense of seperation and a cap on how much love I feel.

As my awareness expands or maybe it´s just my perceptions changing - I find that through meditation and releasing I tap into more of my creativity and inner resources, some would even use the word channel. Perhaps one can tap into the universal life force and make more of yourself by surrendering to something greater than yourself, whatever you want to call it.

Re to clarify re letting go of all limitations. What I mean is that if you release more and more of your self imposed limitations you will be able to get out of your own way. If you are 5 foot tall and very ambitious, you still might not be able to play basketball for a living but you may well become the best you can be at that sport.

When I mentioned letting go of all wanting, I was talking about wanting for nothing so that you could paradoxically have everything, if that is what you want to create. An inner focus on lack tends to expand lack in your life while also creating inner tension (motivation). You want, you feel tension, you achieve your goal and feel a release of tension because the lack is temporarily satisfied. And then the cycle starts over again.

I use releasing and the Silva Method to create the goal as already achieved in my mind. Then I let go of wanting it, and I can then do what it takes to create it without feeling tense, because I feel more certain of success, the quality of my actions is better and it comes across when I deal with people who in turn believe it will happen and so they contribute more.

Ultimately there may be a state of being where I can do the "sitting on my ass and just release technique" and the goal will be attained without any other effort on my part. If someone has consistently managed to do this and can prove it objectively then I´d love to hear from them. For me I release and take action and I believe that the having state rather than the wanting state helps me to be more effective, it may also bring about happy coincidences.

Clearing away all the desires helps me to see who I really am. The rest of the time I am so busy with doing and getting that I can seem to be just a gofer for some want.

Re wanting versus having when it comes to money. When I release into that havingness I get ideas about how to make more money and I also feel more satisfied with what I already have. I may spend a little more but nothing excessive.

Future Perfect Sedona Method

What would it be like if you wanted for nothing whatsoever? If you had no attachments and no aversions to any events, any people or any feelings – what would be left? Just you!

That might actually be quite challenging for most of us to deal with. Western cultures are so caught up in striving, doing and being active that to simply just be can seem lazy and unacceptable. As a result of this you may have major resistance to letting go of the identity that comes with being a productive, active member of society. We can easily equate productivity with virtue without really assessing the value or quality of the contribution itself. Hamsters are very busy creatures!

When I step forward in time in my imagination to a time when I have let go of all limitations, I sense a reality untainted by the DISease of wantings and at the same time it seems very odd. I´m finding it useful and productive to just allow these feelings to be as I´m sure they could well be working away in the background otherwise, working to keep me in the comfort zones I already know.

Becoming more means letting go of what you already know. Make it easier for yourself by having a bright future to aim for, and then let go of it.

Could it get even better?

Peter

Release to release - not to get when using the Sedona Method

A while back a friend pointed out that he gets the best results when he releases to let go rather than releasing to get something. It´s worth looking at this distinction more closely.

When do you most want to release? When you need or want something! Especially if things are not going your way, and at times like this you could not be more attached to wanting things to change. Consequently it is very easy to just get wound up trying harder and harder to have it all work out just the way you want it, just now. A great recipe for trying to release rather than releasing. i.e. putting your focus on the wanting and not on the letting go.

At times like this it´s good to release to let go of the limiting feelings and to leave the goal until later. Even release on the goal itself only allow your focus to be on getting lighter and freer not the goal itself. Use the goal as a signpost for your self imposed limitatations.

When you feel high you will then be more powerful in any releasing or actions you take towards goal attainment.

Sedona Method Tips - What you don´t want

Sedona Method tips...

The sedona method is all about getting what you want and dropping the holding in mind of what you don´t want. Read on for sedona method tips.

Have you noticed that you don´t always get what you want? Why? Because you have so many limiting beliefs and expectations - these nullify the occasional effort to focus on a positive outcome.

I have been getting into the habit of noticing what I don´t want, and each time one pops up I realise that for one reason or another I am setting myself up to attract negatives and difficulties. i.e. limitations.

Ask yourself:

What is it that I do not want to happen?

What am I worried about?

What am I afraid will happen?

Then let it all go. You´ll enjoy the peace of mind and maybe even have ideas that will propel forward towards what you really want.

Sedona Method Shopping Tips

One thing I have noticed lately is that the more I release the less desire I have for those things that I don´t really want when I am out shopping. That cloud of wanton desire just lifts and I can clearly assess whether or not I really want to buy the object in front of me.

Next time you are shopping, pause when you get caught up in that gimmee gimmee feeling and release first BEFORE heading over to the sales assistant with your credit credit.

Here´s what I do. When I´m in a shop considering buying something, I will just allow myself to feel whatever it is that I´m feeling in the moment. After a few moments the mental fog will lift.

Then I´ll decide if I really want the item- If I do I´ll get it although a lot of the time it´s just a feeling that I want rather than something outside of myself, and I ´ll have just got it by releasing!

Warning signs for me include that greedy feeling, that gimmee it now feeling or that sense that the item will really impress other people.

Sedona Method Newbie Guide

This posting is for you if you are looking to find out more about The Sedona Method. I will do my best to answer the following questions for you:


1 What is The Sedona Method?

2 Does it really work?

3 Who developed the Sedona Method and why?

4 How does it work?

5 Is it worth your time learning The Sedona Method?


Before I answer these questions I think it is important to tell you a little about my background and why I set up this site.

From an early age I found it fascinating that you could develop your mind and learn how to make your life better. The first course I ever took was The Silva Method, which was excellent and it got me off to a great start with personal development.

From there I continued to read anything good that I could get my hands on and I quickly realized that there are only so many principles to learn - after that you need to apply these principles daily in your life. So I did.

Life got better especially after I trained in NLP, that really boosted my confidence in what was possible and I got better and better at getting what I wanted in my life.

I started to earn a lot more money than ever before and I also started to find lots of new friends on the same wavelength which was great fun.

The next big jump in my happiness and success came after I became a Reiki healer. Reiki is very powerful and it gives you a heightened sensitivity to life and to the vibes that people give off.

When I was in a business meeting I could almost feel how the other people felt about the business of the day. And when I would meet someone for the first time, in those first few seconds I could feel their pain, their humanity and what they were really like as a person. What they said later in words would only confirm these strong intuitive impressions.

At this point you might be thinking - why am I telling you all this? Im telling you so that you know what my background is and so that you understand what experiences I already had when I first heard about The Sedona Method. Later on this will make more sense when you read about my first impressions of The Sedona Method.

Back to our story!

O.K. At this stage I was becoming more and more successful in my career and in my personal life. I was making a lot more money than ever before with a lot less effort and in my free time I had plenty of great friends that I enjoyed spending time with.

One morning I was driving to work in heavy traffic as usual. The office was only 15 miles from where I lived and I needed to allow 50 minutes to make sure I got to the office on time. Only this day was different - I was driving to work in a brand new Mercedes. Great eh?

The fact is I wasnt really enjoying myself. I was stressed out at work, I was really tired of endless traffic jams and the truth was that despite all the money I really didnt want to do this job anymore.

Unless I was happy at work all the other stuff meant very little to me. I decided it was time to work for myself so I stashed away some more money and left two months later. I have been self-employed ever since.


Why did I learn The Sedona Method?

A few months down the road I was still stressed much to my amazement and disappointment! I used all the tools I already knew and I felt a little better but still this new lifestyle without a salary coming in was very hard to adjust to.

I opened the mail one morning and read a mailing about The Sedona Method. It sounded like exactly what I was looking for even though I didnt understand what it was or how it worked.

A few hours later I was walking out of the house to go for a walk when I went back in to order the Sedona Method tapes. That intuition that I talked about earlier was screaming - get this now!

My first impressions were very positive. The system was very easy to learn and it felt great. I started to feel more in control of my life and happier and more at peace than I had in a long time. I had a feeling conviction that everything would work out jut fine, and it did.

I have now been using The Sedona Method for over 3 years and it seems to get better the more you use it. One caveat. You must use it each day. If you use it once and then expect your life to be better youll be setting yourself up for disappointment. It is designed to be part of how you live and to be used daily.

Now that you know what got me to the point of buying the Sedona Method, let us take a look at each of the questions above.


1 What is The Sedona Method?

Its a way to let go of limiting feelings that hold us back in life.

Many spiritual teachers talk about the importance of knowing what you want and then letting go of the desire. The problem is they dont always tell you HOW to let go! And until you do let go, making progress can be difficult, stressful and painfully slow. It can be like driving with the handbrake on.

Feelings like frustration, hate, envy, greed, fear and anger are part of day to day life for so many of us and they leave you tired and worn out by the end of the day.

Instead, if you know how, you could just let go of these feelings and enjoy feeling at peace and happy. The Sedona Method shows you a simple practical way to do this.


2 Does it really work?

I set up this site - the Sedona Method releasing Club way back on October 31st 1999 because of how impressed I am with The Sedona Method. If you look back over the several pages of postings at this discussion board you will read many, many accounts of how releasing works for me...and you will also read of how other people have successfully used it in their lives.

Click on Message Board in the left hand column of this page to go to the discussion board. You can then read these postings for yourself.
From my experience it does work if you work it! However nothing will happen if buy the best tools available and leave them in storage.

3 Who developed the Sedona Method and why?

Lester Levenson developed the Sedona Method. In 1952 at the age of 42 Lester suffered a massive heart attack and was so weak after he recovered that his doctor warned him that even the slightest effort could kill him. He was ordered to go home to his penthouse in New York and to rest.

Feeling deflated and very afraid of dying, Lester had a lot of time to sit and think about his life and to reflect on his success in life. He quickly realized that he had been a failure. Although he had made a lot of money and done well in business he had never really been happy. What had been the point in working so hard if he had destroyed his health in the process and if he was still unhappy?

He reasoned that if he could figure out how to be happy he might find the reasons why his health had been so poor. So he spent three months sitting alone in his penthouse endlessly analyzing what worked and what didnt work in the pursuit of happiness.

Over this short time he completely regained his health and his discoveries are now taught as The Sedona Method. Lester discovered how to have happiness without sorrow by letting go of the self imposed limiting feelings that hold you back from living your life the way you want it to be.


4 How does it work?

The Sedona Method works by teaching you how to let go of the limiting feelings that are stopping you from being, doing or having what you want. This is done by asking a series of questions that allow you to drop the blocks to moving ahead. The questions are simple and are only meaningful once you know how to use them to access those feelings that are holding you back.

Its like learning any new skill; it all seems very obvious afterwards and almost too easy.


5 Is it worth your time learning The Sedona Method?

Only you can answer this question.

At the beginning of this page I told you about my background so that you will understand why I feel so strongly about the Sedona Method despite already having many valuable tools at my disposal.

For me the Sedona Method is the missing link. There are many ways to get motivated, loads of courses that show you how to set and go after goals but no other course that shows you how to easily get out of your own way and get ahead while having more happiness.

Resisting and Getting

just wanted to take a moment to share some learnings and recent experiences.

On Sunday I felt like things were not working out very well in my business, I had launched a promotional campaign last week and had not got anywhere near the results I expected and hoped for.

I spent quite a lot of time analysing what was working and not working. I wondered why my results were not better. Then I got nowhere trying to figure out what to do next.

So, I put on my Light & Sound machine and spent two 35 minute sessions in a state of deep relaxation releasing on my resistance to having things work out well. I certainly felt a lot beter after doing this - less stressed and worried and a lot more optimistic that somehow things would work out. I didn´t feel completely at peace but a lot better.

Still, I didn´t have any new solutions pop into my head as I sometimes do after releasing.

Then Sunday I found some material online that answers a lot of the issues I need a strategy for. Finally yesterday I stumbled onto exactly what I need right now to get the results I want!

Moral of this story - thinking and reasoning will only get you so far, releasing is the missing link that lets you tap into the collective unconscious and its storehouse of knowledge.

Releasing Blue Light

I spent an hour last night releasing on one question:

Which would you rather - wanting security or having security?

For most of that time until the last five minutes the answer that popped up was wanting security and then at the end it changed to having security. And all of the time I was releasing deeply with deep breathing happening all by itself.

I had my eyes closed. What was interesting was the images that came with this shift.

I started imagining a strong dark blue colour radiating out from my chest to my entire body and then away from me as I exhaled.

Afterwards I felt a sense of deep peace.

Has anyone else had a similar experience and seen colours when you release?

Peter

"No!" is an acceptable response

Today I was releasing on a minor irritation where I did not get my way with a friend.

I started releasing and I wanted a Yes response to the could you, would you questions. And I was forcing the answers so I got stuck. I was also releasing to get something rather than to let it go!!

Once I allowed to answer to be No! ... if that is what was to come up - the releasing went fine.

Note to myself: release to let go not to get something and No is an acceptable response

Sedona Method Tips - Why Did X Happen?

One recurring theme of Sedona Method students is the need to understand why X happened.

Releasing is all about letting go of feelings. That´s it! Letting go has nothing to do with peeking into your past to figure out why something happened.

Ironically, if you will just release on the past - insights may well pop up out of the blue.

Look at it another way, how many years have you spent attempting to figure it out? It didn´t get you to where you want to be or you wouldn´t be reading this message and learning how to release.

Looking forward. Keep releasing as simple as possible and do it daily and you will enjoy massive progress.

Responsibility for the Big Bucks $$$$

I wanted to let you know what I have been up to this week...

I was listening to the Larry Crane tapes and stopped the tape when I got to the section on Responsibility (page 48 in the manual) to spend more time on that section.

Lester said that taking responsibility is both a powerful way to create abundance and a way to accelerate your releasing.

He suggested taking full responsibility for everything that is happening to you because you created it. Do this by examining your thinking and correcting it by letting go of the limitations you become aware of.

How? Ask yourself: wherein did I cause this to happen to me?

To apply this to abundance, ask yourself:

Wherein Did I Cause My Lack of Abundance?

I have been releasing on this question for an hour at a time each day this week and its amazing what is coming to the surface to be released.

Here are some of the issues that popped up for me to release and the deeper wanting I was seeking:
not wanting to stand out from the crowd - wanting approval
guilt about being rich when many people are poor - wanting control
holding back so as not to be too successful - wanting control
not applying all the knowledge I have - wanting control
afraid of losing what I accumulate - wanting security

I had no idea I had so many limiting thoughts stopping me from having abundance. Its incredible I managed to earn any money with the baggage I have in my unconscious mind!

The more I release on this question the clearer I am getting about the way ahead and the more determined I am to make my life more abundant in love, happiness and wealth.

In fact, right now I am angry about my lack of abundance whereas in the past I did´t really care. So clearly I have moved from Apathy to Anger after just a few hours of releasing.

Peace -- here I come!

Having it NOW

I was listening to some tapes of Lester recently and he was pointing out that a lot of people make the mistake of not releasing to have their goals now - instead they release on having them in the future.

This results in the attainment of your goals staying in the future.

Think about a goal you have that has not manifested yet....

When you think about having this - when will that be?

If your sense of having it is in the future you may have resistance to having it now. Could you let the resistance go?

Goal setting is an integral part of the Sedona Method. If you want a refresher...
Wording a goal statement - 10 guidelines on page 45 of the course manual
Goal Chart - page 50 - release on goal
Action Steps - page 51 - release on "to do list"
Advantages and Disadvantages - page 96
Likes and Dislikes - page 38
I regard goal setting as a crucial part of the Sedona Method whether you want more happiness, love, abundance or freedom.

Sedona Method - Miracles May Take Time


When you read Sedona Method or Release Technique success stories it is easy to feel like you are doing something wrong.

Why haven´t you won the lottery yet? Why hasn´t your perfect lover walked (literally) right up to your front door?

Why haven´t you cured that irritating illness that you haven´t been able to shake off for years?

First of all let me say that it is okay to release and to take action on your goals.

This reminds me of the joke about the man who had been praying to God for years for a windfall of millions of dollars. God finally responded to his call for an explanation. When God spoke this is what he said: "It would help if you bought a lottery ticket from time to time!"

The ultimate Grand Master Releaser may well be able to sit on his or her chair all day long and do nothing other than releasing... and allow in whatever he or she desires.

You are not there yet.

That ultimate releaser state might be a good long-term goal. How about taking the pressure off and getting started with small goals first?

If you were a learner driver would you apply to compete in a Formula One race? Of course not, you would learn how to drive first!

The first stage is to release, make it part of how you live, set goals and start releasing to completion.

For now, pay attention to your intuition as it will guide you to do certain things, go to certain places and to talk to certain people. The more you release the more you will know the best course of action. Your assessment of situations will improve because your thinking will not be clouded by emotion.

I get great results with releasing and it helps me to create lots of lucky coincidences. I also take a lot of action - I follow through and act on my intuition.

Could it get any better?

Sedona Method Success - what does it take?

I wanted to comment on a theme that pops up from time to time.

It goes like this... "I have been releasing for 6 months and nothing much is happening!"

Here are some pointers to help you move ahead...

1. Your success with the Sedona Method depends on your correct application of the method.

Doing it the wrong way for a long time will not yield results.

Even if you think you have been releasing for two years - if you haven´t been actually releasing you have no experience of releasing. You are still at day one.

When you are new to releasing I highly recommend that you follow the instructions to the letter and only later on, after you have evidence it is working, customise it to your own way of doing things.

Let me give you an example. I play tennis and have done so since I was a boy. Like most tennis players my backhand is weaker than my forehand.

Why is my backhand weaker? I have hit as many balls on that side as on my forehand side over the years.

Because I have been repeating the same ineffective stroke year after year.

Am I going to do anything about it? I´m not, because it`s not that important to me.

In terms of releasing you need a good enough reason to change what you are doing - if your life depended on it I´ll bet you would be releasing like a master before the day is out.

2. Vague notions about what success with the Sedona Method means will get you frustrated

What do you regard as success? Total bliss, fantastic relationships and amazing health?

These are very vague and intangible ideals. You have to get highly specific about what you want. This is the only way to know if you are making progress or not.

Measure where you are today and track your progress or lack of it. If you are clearly making progress then keep doing what is working.

If things are not getting better stop doing what is not working and get help.

3. Releasing with the Sedona Method is simple

Does this mean that all you is ask could you, would you?

No!

It is not really about asking and answering questions - it is all about feelings not thoughts.

There are several different ways to release, all of which are covered in the course.

If one approach does not work for you then use one of the other approaches.

I have much more success when I do not use could you, would you.

A common mistake is the attempt to complicate the simplicity by adding steps or by leaving steps out. If you end up with your own variation and it does not work don´t blame anyone else for its ineffectiveness.

Releasing is a very different way of operating in the world - if it seems difficult to you right now its because you are still learning how to do it. It really is simple once you get past the learner driver stage!

4. Big results happen with the Sedona Method when you let go of it all

If you want a big demonstration of what releasing can do you have to earn it by releasing to completion on your goal.

Pick a highly specific goal and release until you have no resistance, no fear and no attachments or aversions to the goal.

This is easy and quick for small goals that are within your sense of possibility.

If the goal is way outside your sense of what is possible for YOU now in this very moment then you have a lot of releasing to do. And two hours releasing is unlikely to be enough.

For example, let ´s say you have never sung in public in your life and you want to sing your No.1 hit song on national TV.

Is it possible? Yes!

Is it possible for you today? The answer needs to be a congruent Yes expressed from a hootless state. Only then have you let go.

5. Your starting point with the Sedona Method is a factor in your success

Why doesn´t everyone get fast results? Well, maybe releasing isn´t for everyone. Give it 100% and decide for yourself.

At the end of the day, if you already had an ability to let go before you discovered releasing you will see results sooner rather than later.

For me it was a new experience feeling my feelings as I had done a great job of suppressing them for years. I had to learn to feel them BEFORE I could let them go so it took me longer than some to get it.

6. Miracles may take time

When you read Sedona Method or Release Technique success stories it is easy to feel like you are doing something wrong.

Why haven´t you won the lottery yet? Why hasn´t your perfect lover walked (literally) right up to your front door?

Why haven´t you cured that irritating illness that you haven´t been able to shake off for years?

First of all let me say that it is okay to release and to take action on your goals.

This reminds me of the joke about the man who had been praying to God for years for a windfall of millions of dollars. God finally responded to his call for an explanation. When God spoke this is what he said: "It would help if you bought a lottery ticket from time to time!"

The ultimate Grand Master Releaser may well be able to sit on his or her chair all day long and do nothing other than releasing... and allow in whatever he or she desires.

You are not there yet.

That ultimate releaser state might be a good long-term goal. How about taking the pressure off and getting started with small goals first?

If you were a learner driver would you apply to compete in a Formula One race? Of course not, you would learn how to drive first!

The first stage is to release, make it part of how you live, set goals and start releasing to completion.

For now, pay attention to your intuition as it will guide you to do certain things, go to certain places and to talk to certain people. The more you release the more you will know the best course of action. Your assessment of situations will improve because your thinking will not be clouded by emotion.

I get great results with releasing and it helps me to create lots of lucky coincidences. I also take a lot of action - I follow through and act on my intuition.

What can you do now?

1. If you already have the Sedona Method or Release Technique course - review the material to make sure you are following the instructions. Have you misunderstood something? Have you forgotten something?

What If - You Could Let Go Of All Limitations

This page is for you if you are surfing to find out more about me and why I decided to learn about emotional releasing and The Sedona Method. I will do my best to answer the following questions for you:


1 What is The Sedona Method?

2 Does it really work?

3 Who developed the Sedona Method and why?

4 How does it work?

5 Is it worth your time learning The Sedona Method?


Before I answer these questions I think it is important to tell you a little about my background and why I set up this site to share Sedona Method tips and insights.

From an early age I found it fascinating that you could develop your mind and learn how to make your life better. The first course I ever took was The Silva Method, which was excellent and it got me off to a great start with personal development.

From there I continued to read anything good that I could get my hands on and I quickly realized that there are only so many principles to learn - after that you need to apply these principles daily in your life. So I did.

Life got better especially after I trained in NLP, that really boosted my confidence in what was possible and I got better and better at getting what I wanted in my life.

I started to earn a lot more money than ever before and I also started to find lots of new friends on the same wavelength which was great fun.

The next big jump in my happiness and success came after I became a Reiki healer. Reiki is very powerful and it gives you a heightened sensitivity to life and to the vibes that people give off.

When I was in a business meeting I could almost feel how the other people felt about the business of the day. And when I would meet someone for the first time, in those first few seconds I could feel their pain, their humanity and what they were really like as a person. What they said later in words would only confirm these strong intuitive impressions.

At this point you might be thinking - why am I telling you all this? Im telling you so that you know what my background is and so that you understand what experiences I already had when I first heard about The Sedona Method. Later on this will make more sense when you read about my first impressions of The Sedona Method.

Back to our story!

O.K. At this stage I was becoming more and more successful in my career and in my personal life. I was making a lot more money than ever before with a lot less effort and in my free time I had plenty of great friends that I enjoyed spending time with.

One morning I was driving to work in heavy traffic as usual. The office was only 15 miles from where I lived and I needed to allow 50 minutes to make sure I got to the office on time. Only this day was different - I was driving to work in a brand new Mercedes. Great eh?

The fact is I wasnt really enjoying myself. I was stressed out at work, I was really tired of endless traffic jams and the truth was that despite all the money I really didnt want to do this job anymore.

Unless I was happy at work all the other stuff meant very little to me. I decided it was time to work for myself so I stashed away some more money and left two months later. I have been self-employed ever since.


Why did I learn The Sedona Method?

A few months down the road I was still stressed much to my amazement and disappointment! I used all the tools I already knew and I felt a little better but still this new lifestyle without a salary coming in was very hard to adjust to.

I opened the mail one morning and read a mailing about The Sedona Method. It sounded like exactly what I was looking for even though I didnt understand what it was or how it worked.

A few hours later I was walking out of the house to go for a walk when I went back in to order the Sedona Method tapes. That intuition that I talked about earlier was screaming - get this now!

My first impressions were very positive. The system was very easy to learn and it felt great. I started to feel more in control of my life and happier and more at peace than I had in a long time. I had a feeling conviction that everything would work out just fine, and it did.

I have now been using The Sedona Method for over 3 years and it seems to get better the more you use it. One caveat. You must use it each day. If you use it once and then expect your life to be better youll be setting yourself up for disappointment. It is designed to be part of how you live and to be used daily.

Now that you know what got me to the point of buying the Sedona Method, let us take a look at each of the questions above.


1 What is The Sedona Method?

It is a way to let go of limiting feelings that hold us back in life. i.e. you release emotional states that are holding you back.

Many spiritual teachers talk about the importance of knowing what you want and then letting go of the desire. The problem is they dont always tell you HOW to let go! And until you do let go, making progress can be difficult, stressful and painfully slow. It can be like driving with the handbrake on.

Feelings like frustration, hate, envy, greed, fear and anger are part of day to day life for so many of us and they leave you tired and worn out by the end of the day.

Instead, if you know how, you could just let go of these feelings and enjoy feeling at peace and happy. The Sedona Method shows you a simple practical way to do this.


2 Does it really work?

I set up a site - the Sedona Method releasing Club way back on October 31st 1999 because of how impressed I am with The Sedona Method. If you look back over the several pages of postings at this discussion board you will read many, many accounts of how releasing works for me...and you will also read of how other people have successfully used it in their lives.

You can then read these postings for yourself.

http://groups.msn.com/TheSedonaMethodreleasingClub/messageboard.msnw



From my experience it does work if you work it! However nothing will happen if buy the best tools available and leave them in storage.

3 Who developed the Sedona Method and why?

Lester Levenson developed the Sedona Method. In 1952 at the age of 42 Lester suffered a massive heart attack and was so weak after he recovered that his doctor warned him that even the slightest effort could kill him. He was ordered to go home to his penthouse in New York and to rest.

Feeling deflated and very afraid of dying, Lester had a lot of time to sit and think about his life and to reflect on his success in life. He quickly realized that he had been a failure. Although he had made a lot of money and done well in business he had never really been happy. What had been the point in working so hard if he had destroyed his health in the process and if he was still unhappy?

He reasoned that if he could figure out how to be happy he might find the reasons why his health had been so poor. So he spent three months sitting alone in his penthouse endlessly analyzing what worked and what didnt work in the pursuit of happiness.

Over this short time he completely regained his health and his discoveries are now taught as The Sedona Method. Lester discovered how to have happiness without sorrow by letting go of the self imposed limiting feelings that hold you back from living your life the way you want it to be.


4 How does it work?

The Sedona Method works by teaching you how to let go of the limiting feelings that are stopping you from being, doing or having what you want. This is done by asking a series of questions that allow you to drop the blocks to moving ahead. The questions are simple and are only meaningful once you know how to use them to access those feelings that are holding you back.

Its like learning any new skill; it all seems very obvious afterwards and almost too easy.


5 Is it worth your time learning The Sedona Method?

Only you can answer this question.

At the beginning of this page I told you about my background so that you will understand why I feel so strongly about the Sedona Method despite already having many valuable tools at my disposal.

For me the Sedona Method is the missing link. There are many ways to get motivated, loads of courses that show you how to set and go after goals but no other course that shows you how to easily get out of your own way and get ahead while having more happiness.

Letting go of wanting your own approval

It is easy to see how important it is to be approved by those
people who matter most to you in your life. Family and friends
are the ones you turn to first in a time of crisis. You count on
them for support and encouragement and their approval of who you
are and what you do is deeply significant.

Ever had a time in your life when those closest to you
disapproved of your behavior? It is very uncomfortable is it not?
In a moment, peace of mind can vanish in a puff of smoke and you
crave approval more than anything else. This time in the
wilderness seems to last forever and when it is finally over the
newly earned approval of your peers feels just great.

This wanting approval can get out of control though. We can
easily extend this need for approval to all people we come into
contact with in our life. When we want and need approval
we encounter this lack of approval everywhere we go; the waiter
does not smile when he takes your order; the checkout operator
hardly looks at you; and your boss only compliments your work when
the moon is full and the first Tuesday of the month precedes a wet
weekend!

All of a sudden life is a struggle, a constant battle to get other
people, all people, to like you and to approve of you. And the more
you want this approval the less you seem to get it.

What is the solution? The answer is to not be concerned about what
other people think of you. This can be achieved by approving of
yourself completely despite your past indiscretions, failings and
errors of judgment. When you totally accept and approve of
yourself you will have little interest in how other people view
you. If they like you *Great*, if they do not, that is their
choice and their loss.

There are many ways to boost your opinion of yourself. I have
discovered that just letting go of wanting your own approval works
really well. Simply ask yourself the following question:

Could I let go of wanting my own approval?

Sounds too simple to work. I know! It works if and only if you
ask the question with your attention on your feeling response not
on the answer that pops into your head. Our goal is to let go of
the limiting feelings, this is not a mental exercise.

Spend twenty minutes concentrating on this question. Ask the
question again and again, and each time just notice your feeling
response before asking the question again. After twenty minutes
you can expect to feel lighter and more at peace with yourself.
Your breathing may also change and it is likely to become deeper
and more relaxed.

The effect of letting go of wanting your approval is that you
release the limitations that stop you from approving of yourself
and you are left with what you wanted - your own approval.

You can also ask yourself the question, could I let go of wanting
my own approval?... anytime you need to communicate at your best
to make a good impression. Just say it softly to yourself under
your breath or quietly inside your head. Ask the question, notice
your feeling response, and repeat the process again and again.

By approving completely of yourself you will not be concerned
with winning the approval of your listeners and ironically
people will tend to reflect this approval back to you since they
will take you at your own value.

Now, go and prove this for yourself!

Barriers to Releasing And A Flexible Solution

Today I want to discuss one barrier to releasing - being too mechanical in how you apply the Method.

Let´s take an example. When releasing on wanting security, if you are a good student of the Method, you will know that all you need to do is ask yourself one question:

Could you let go of wanting security?

However what if you get bored with this question or you just feel stuck? What is the answer to this barrier? I recommend taking a flexible approach. Ask yourself variations on the wanting security question until you find one that clicks for you. Here are some suggestions:

- Could you let go of wanting security?


- Could I let go of wanting security?


- Could you let go of wanting insecurity?


- Could I let go of wanting insecurity?

In this example I only looked at dealing with wanting security from the "could you let it go?" angle. You could also use this approach when allowing the feeling to be present or when you dive into the heart of the feeling.

Again, ask youself variations of the question until you find what works best for you.

Reality Shifting

Hello and welcome to a new week -- your best releasing week yet!

Did you get what you wanted last week? Some of it? Same here. And when you think about the difference between what you got and what you didn´t get - did you notice that your mind stopped you from having it all?

Limiting beliefs and feelings prevented you from having everything you asked for.

Maybe you felt that you didn´t quite deserve the really good stuff and perhaps part of you didn´t believe you would be able to pull it off and somehow manifest some of those BIG goals.

I had the same experience. So what did we learn from all of this?

1 Set big goals but don´t concern yourself with how you make it happen or else you will not even try. The solution isn´t obvious now. If it was you´d already be on the way to achieving your goal. The more you release the clearer the way ahead will be.

2 Set a highly specific goal and release on it until you feel complete i.e.until the sense of wanting is gone. Do this over time as and when the feelings of wanting return.

3 Release to release and not to get. Releasing to get just causes you to be stuck in the desire and satisfaction loop. Release to release and see what happens.

Any tips you´d like to share?-- go on get typing
