The Sedona Method: How To Release EVERYTHING & Heal Your Life
Maybe there’s something to that common yet dreadful command, “Just let it go!” In the Sedona Method, the journey to releasing negative experiences and improving your life is propelled by just that: letting go.
You’re probably thinking that it’s not that simple. True, we often overcomplicate things, hold grudges, and cling to stress as human beings. It’s not fun to admit it, but some people thrive on chaos and drama. If you’re one of those people, don’t feel ashamed. Acknowledging your tendencies and pinpointing the source of your negative feelings is the first step to change. Then, you should breathe in deep and let it go.
In this article, I’ll explore this “letting go” through the Sedona Method, a scientifically proven technique that helps people release all the emotions and feelings blocking up their life so that they can heal and find peace.
What is the Sedona Method?
The Sedona Method was originally created by Lester Levenson, a great entrepreneur and physicist who enjoyed outward success yet suffered silently from physical and mental health conditions. Despite achieving all he had dreamed of in his career and personal life, he never felt that he had achieved true happiness. As a man who embraced every challenge, Lester stepped up to the challenge to devise a solution to this inner discontent.
The beginnings of the Sedona Method stemmed from Lester’s realization that we are unlimited beings. We limit ourselves with concepts and categories that are not true, yet we find comfort in their limitations. By creating labels and set boundaries we create structure for our lives, but these limiting concepts can easily be released because they have no foundation in truth.
Since Lester was an innovator in this line of thought, he did not have any available vocabulary that could help him spread his ideas to others. He wanted to help others release and heal like he had done for himself, though, so he sought other philosophical leaders’ advice. He began partnering with evangelical leaders and reading books from both the eastern and western schools of thought. He was opposed to being a guru because the Sedona Method fundamentally teaches that the journey is within the self, not dependent on external sources. Still, his leadership caused many people to follow him as students. Soon, he realized that his ideas needed to be formalized.
Ultimately, the Sedona Method teaches that you are more than you ever realized. You don’t need to be limited by the limiting concepts of our society, and you can heal by releasing those limitations that aren’t founded in truth.
How Does the Sedona Method Work?
Just like life, you only get out of the Sedona Method what you put into it. The guides are just that–guides–and the true instrument of healing is yourself. No external forces can help you or hurt you. The process happens entirely within yourself and depends on you to work.
The Sedona Method is as effective–if not more effective than–other types of treatments without the downsides of treatment. Many people fear that they will become emotionally spent, become dependent, or experience forms of trauma from the treatment of emotional issues. The Sedona Method does not involve any substances, so there is no fear of addiction or dependency. The technique also focuses on the good and is a restorative practice, not exhaustive, so you will never get to the point of feeling emotionally spent or traumatized. Overall, the Sedona Method is about finding freedom and release.
Is The Sedona Method a Religion or Belief System?
Practicing the Sedona Method is easy and unproblematic because it simply teaches you an effective method for letting go of unwanted emotions, feelings, and thoughts that hold you back from fully living and being yourself. It is not a system or religion, as the founder himself did not believe that external forces were responsible for your path to self-healing.
Rather than weekly meetings with other people, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, talk therapy, or church services, the Sedona Method empowers you to heal yourself whenever you want, as much as you want, without needing to depend on any external structures or other people. Because of this empowerment, you can achieve release and freedom quickly rather than the weeks, months, or even years that other forms of “therapy” require.
What Results Can I Expect from The Sedona Method?
The results you’ll get throughout practicing the Sedona Method can evolve as you get better at the practice, but you can feel immediate results in the release that you’ll achieve! You’ll feel lighter, more optimistic, and positive. In turn, your relationships will improve, you’ll make significant decisions, and take the wheel of your life rather than taking the punches. Exactly which results you’ll experience depend on your own personal issues and what you’d like to accomplish.
For many people, the emotions and thoughts they’ve been holding onto for so long are an amazing relief to let go of. Those who practice the Sedona Method report feeling such great relief that it sometimes leads to laughter! You’ll be able to access the core self, which is a place where you can experience life without feeling affected by the events, and therefore stop holding onto negative thoughts and feelings in the first place. Your past hurts will evaporate, and all new potential hurts will pass by you.
Sounds Good! How Do I Get Started?
There are five main ways to use the Sedona Method, and it’s important to try them until you find that fits you. Everyone has a unique personality and has experienced different things, so the method is not a one-size-fits-all solution. In a way, that makes the technique so much more effective.
First, you can attempt the Sedona Method by acknowledging an unwanted feeling and simply choosing to let it go. This method can be difficult for many who have gotten into the habit of holding grudges and feeling pain. In a way, letting go of pain can be a painful experience within itself. Only people who have achieved full self-control and accessed their core self can fully succeed in this first technique. If you pursue this method, it night helps to attempt it on only minor feelings first until you get the hang of it.
Second, you can choose to allow that emotion or thought to exist as it is and not interact with it extensively. Welcome it into yourself, acknowledge that the feeling has the right to exist, and then leave it be. Third, you can aggressively confront the emotion. When you feel that emotion, you can dive in and fully feel that emotion so that you have satisfied its existence before you let it go.
The fourth way is to acknowledge that the way we define emotions in opposite polarities is actually hurtful to us. In society, we say that we are either happy or sad, stressed or calm. Impressing upon ourselves these limiting categories stops us from addressing our emotions and thoughts as they really are and validating their sources.
Finally, the most advanced way is the fifth way, which is to stare that emotion in the face and see through it to the “effortless Awareness” that exists.
The journey to self-healing is different for everyone, but the power ultimately lies within you!
You are a beautiful Living Being filled with light and love, born from stardust. You are unlimited potential in every direction. With a focus on discipline, virtue, and your own goodness, you can become as expanded and liberated as you desire.
