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?


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?

2. If you do not have one of the two releasing courses you can find out more now at...

You do not need both courses - choose the one that appeals to you most.
