The Magic Of Letting Go

avatar


The Sedona Method has helped me so much in my life. It is a way of "letting go." If you were involved in any 12 step organizations, you might have heard of the saying "let go and let God." So often, we don't do this until we have no other option. Then, we let go of the situation and put it in God's hands.

With the Sedona Method, you can also let go of negative feelings and beliefs. However, the Sedona Method is best experienced emotionally rather than intellectually. So, practice these exercises with your heart and not your mind.

Grab a pen or pencil and hold on to it. Notice how the object is not attached to your hand. The pen or pencil represents your negative feelings, and your hand represents your awareness. Grasp the object tightly and notice how it feels like it is part of you. Actually, we are holding onto it, just like our feelings. Now drop the object and see it just falls to the floor. If you choose to, you can do the same thing with your emotions.

Think of a situation that you'd like to feel better about. Really welcome how you feel about the topic. Welcome the thoughts you have, the pictures, the sounds. (It helps me to gently clench my fist by my stomach as I am welcoming). I can't stress this enough, really welcome your feelings.

Next, ask yourself "Could I let this go?" (are you capable? yes or no are both acceptable answers)

"Would I let this go?" (are you willing? Yes and no are both acceptable answers).

"When?" (this is an invitation to do it now)

I slowly open my hand and feel the release.

Don't overthink about how to do it. Instead, lead with your heart.

If you just can't get it, try this:

Welcome as sad as you are...
Welcome as happy as you are...
Repeat back and forth

You can try

Welcome as nervous as you are...
Welcome as confident as you are...
Repeat back and forth

This exercise is the basics of letting go or the Sedona Method.

I plan on taking these basics further in future articles.

I love how you use physical action to deal with an emotional experience. This is really interesting and makes a lot of sense.

I have heard before how it is said that you should write things down that you battle to deal with. Then after you have done that, burn that pace of paper or destroy it in some other way. But it is said that that action also helps to deal with that emotion.

I haven't experienced it myself, but I have spoken to people who say it definitely helps.

The method you describe here sounds like it is using more or less the same principle...am I right?

On another topic... I have told my daughter about you and she is keen to make contact with you. She feels that you can share experiences, discuss the apps (including what she is working on) and you might both benefit by having some conversation.

If you are keen on the idea, she has given me an email address where you can reach out to her if you want.

Is there any way where I can send you a DM to share this info with you?

Hi Jaco, thank you for such an incredible response. I think they may be similar as they both are letting go. Sure, I'd like to share ideas with your daughter. Are you a member of Click Track Profit? You can DM there. I have the same username.
