Probably one of the most popular self-help programs around, the Sedona Method was originally started by Lester Levenson and taken over by Hale Dwoskin in the 1990s.
The Sedona Method practices a technique called ‘the release technique’, which can be applied to all types of negative emotions and problematic situations
The Sedona Method may be one of the older self-help systems, but I feel its approach is unique amongst today’s self-help product market.
I recently re-took the ‘Effortless Wealth & Success’ course and I uncovered something so simple yet unique and new to me.
I have been using positive visualisation combined with SMART goal setting for some time; I had become a firm believer in concentrating hard on my goals, visualising their success and deactivating any negative thought processes.
Using these methods I have achieved an abundance of things in a very short space of time, but, there are a few wants and aims that have become a slight annoyance and seemingly impossible to achieve, in fact rather than being positive these aims have become negative and slightly stressful.
Then, Hale Dwoskin said something that made a huge difference to my life, he explained;
What if you were to allow yourself to let go of this goal, and release to the point where it’s ok whether or not you achieve this goal.
Hale explained that if you let go of the attachments and aversions you have around a particular topic, you create inner space, certainty and clarity which will heighten the chances of getting what you want.
You may also realize that these goals are indeed small and unimportant, they may not even really be your goals, but goals imposed upon you by life or even family and friends.
Ultimately, by using the release technique you will create the freedom and distance needed to recognise the importance and relevance of the goal, and, to finally realize why you have not been able to achieve your goal.
What the Sedona Method has made me fully realise is that I need a mixture of self-help techniques to improve different aspects of my life, there is no ‘one fix all’ technique.
The Sedona Method can be applied to all areas of your life: relationships, money, stress, over eating, goal setting, etc. I am thrilled with the freedom the release technique has given me. It really has shifted some weight off of my shoulders, allowing me to achieve even more.
I’ll admit, I found Hale Dwoskin laugh to be a little strange at first, but after a while you warm to it and see that it suits his slightly quirky character and certainly makes for a brighter listening experience.
