Yes, I have my moments. Times when I’m upset or worried or anxious or afraid. Do you have moments like this too?
Lately I’ve been experimenting a bit with The Sedona Method. The book’s been on my shelf for years but I’ve not read much of it.
The Sedona Method is a simple technique for releasing unwanted emotional states. So simple you wouldn’t think it would work. But I think maybe it does. At least some of the time. Who knows, maybe even much of the time.
Want to try experimenting with it yourself? Here are 4 steps to get started.
1) Focus on an issue you’d like to feel better about. Let yourself feel what you are feeling. Become aware of how you feel in this moment.
2) Ask yourself one of these three questions:
Could I let this feeling go?
Could I allow this feeling to be here?
Could I welcome this feeling?
Either yes or no is fine. Don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the question, just answer it.
3) No matter which question you asked yourself in step 2 or how you answered it, ask yourself:
You’re asking yourself if you are willing to let go. Again, don’t overthink your answer. If you’re not sure or if your answer is no, ask “Would I rather have this feeling or be free?”
Even if your answer is no, go to the next step.
4) Ask yourself:
You may decide to let it go now. Or not. Either way is fine.
5) Repeat each of the 4 steps until you feel free of or better about the feeling.
The results may be subtle or noticeable. And each step towards letting go of unwanted feelings takes you closer to freedom.
