My personal experience with The Sedona Method is that it has helped me more than anything, in the 20 years of my doing countless workshops and other teachings. I think The Sedona Method is so powerful because, in a way it is so simple. It is a way to release any difficult or long-standing emotion you have right on the spot. It is useful for anxiety, depression, creating better relationships, bringing more calm and peace in your life, creating more abundance, and more. I personally had anxiety attacks several years ago when going through a lot of stress and since using the The Sedona Method, I have not had one.
I’ll try and give you all a personal experience with releasing, using The Sedona Method. For those who may want more information there is a whole page on my website for The Sedona Method. The address is http://www.meditationsunlimited.com
A lot of our stress comes from resistance to the present moment. We are usually wanting things to be diffferent than they are in one way or another.
One of the ways to release stress is to release on wanting things to change. That doesn’t mean not taking action on the things you can change. It simply means, in the moment could you let go of wanting to change___________ ? You fill in the blank.
Here are some useful questions and suggestions from the book, The Sedona Method, by Hale Dwoskin.
Think of something in your life you’d like to change. Then begin to take a few moments and close your eyes, focus inside and relax. Next, think of the specific person or thing in your life that you wish were different, that you would like to change. And just for this moment could you allow whatever feeling came up about that to be there.
Now again, think about that thing you’d like to change and just for THIS moment could you let the situation be as it is? Could you allow the emotions or body sensations you have to be there? Could you welcome whatever is there? If you’re having difficulty letting go of wanting your particular situation to change, could you let that be OK too. I know this may seem counterintuitive, but it is extremely helpful to not resist our anxiety, depression, or whatever we are experiencing.
Notice how you feel now. Do you feel any lighter, or more a ease than before?
Here is a direct passage from The Sedona Method book.
“Focus inside again, and allow yourself to become aware of something else that you want to change. It could be a person, a place, a thing, or a situation. Whatever it is, simply focus on it and feel what it’s like to want to change it.
Then, could you let it go?
Now, focus on that same thing or something else you’d like to change in your life that you’d like to change.
And, could you let go of wanting to change it?
Remember, there’s nothing wrong with changing things in life that you’d like to change. We very often get stuck in “wanting” rather than taking action. So, it’s a good idea to experiment with letting go of wanting to change it.
Notice how you feel inside right now. Perhaps you have a sense of space opening up, deep inside you, as you let go of wanting to change things. Does letting go of wanting to change things make you feel a bit uncomfortable? Does it make you feel a little out of control? Could you welcome the feeling?
Then, could you let go of wanting to change it?
Now, could you allow youself to feel exactly the way you feel in this moment? Could you welcome it? Whenever you selcomethe way you feel, whenever you allow it, you’re embracing a natural way of letting go of wanting to change it.
I hope this has been helpful.
