The Sedona release technique is something we found along the way. It’s a useful addition to our tool box. Something to add that can help us overcome persistent thought streams or the beliefs they engender.
You can find them here
We think of it as an extension to the use of chunking tools in NLP technique trails or even in the work of Edward Debono who is able to think about and share patterns that empower and free us to think in new ways.
We don’t want to preview the technique or ruin it for you. It is so simple that hearing about it secondhand will not give you what you need to make bit work – a bit like the Misaligned Monkey
When we talk to people who have heard about it but not prepared to do the work and read or listen to the book or complete the challenge struggle to get it or make it work.
So if you are struggling with your pursuit of the thought streams that still give you and issue it would help if you and your Monkey understood Sedona technique and how it works –
You will see why we are such fans
They talk about releasing feelings ….
We believe feelings are generated by thought streams and its why we go back to the root cause and sort these to meet our needs today.
However their technique for releasing feelings works to help us understand the thought stream better and can provide another window on its purpose so enabling us to understand and work round it if it helps us to do so.
Here’s a link to the technique overview
Here’s an exert from their web page go read and try it out:
The Sedona Method is scientifically shown to be effective by respected institutions. In fact, many corporations have worked with Sedona Training Associates to create positive results for their companies and their employees. We have a long history of success.
What can you expect from the Sedona Method?
The Sedona Method is based on the power of feelings.
Think about it. If you FEEL powerful, then you act powerfully. If you feel sad, then you act sadly. Your feelings define how you operate in the world. And, unless you change those feelings, you are going to act as you have always acted, and you will produce the results you’ve always produced.
It is our limiting emotions that prevent us from creating and maintaining the lives that we choose. We abdicate our decision-making ability to them. We even imagine that our emotions can dictate to us who we are supposed to be. This is made apparent in our use of language. Have you ever said to someone, “I am angry,” or, “I am sad”? When we speak like this, we are saying to those around us and to ourselves, without realizing it, that we are our anger, or we are our grief. We relate to others and ourselves as though we are our feelings. In fact, we even invent whole stories of why we feel the way we feel in order to justify or explain this misperception of our identity.
It is not that feelings don’t occasionally appear to be justified. It’s just that feelings are only feelings; feelings are not facts and not who we are—and we can easily let them go. Choosing to let them go frees us to perceive what is actually here, and to act, or refrain from acting, accordingly. This translates into an ability to handle life: to make stronger, clearer choices. It allows you and me to act in ways that support us in achieving our goals and aspirations, as opposed to sabotaging them. I have seen the process of letting go of the emotions grow into an ability to have more money, better relationships, more radiant health and physical well-being, and an ability to be happy, calm, focused, and even blissful, no matter what is going on around us.
If you’ve tried mental techniques, you know that it is very difficult to create a change. It requires massive energy and focus. It’s a hard thing to do!
But releasing operates on the feeling level. It’s easy. You can “let go” of years of mental programs and accumulated feelings in just seconds using the Sedona Method’s unique techniques. There are no complicated processes or reprogramming or affirmations to plaster all over your computer-screen.
“I gained insight on how many things that I want to change in my life and how letting go of that “want” leaves me with a sense of peace.”
Stefani Appel, Brookville, NY
When an unwanted feeling comes up, you let it go. That’s it. With the limiting feeling out of the way, you are free to create any result you desire, whenever you want.
I know there are a lot of people out there trying to sell a lot of programs (I’ve tried many of them myself). I can be as honest and as sincere with you as possible, and I am, but my words mean nothing unless this program works for YOU.
In short, the Sedona Method will show you how to enjoy living a happier, more productive, more satisfying, more loving and joyous life, even now. Because our world has changed so radically, knowing how to let go is a critical survival skill that we all need in order to maintain and expand upon the life that we may have taken for granted up to now.

Releasing Is Natural
Have you ever watched a very young child fall down and then look around to see if there is any reason to be upset? When children think no one is watching them, in an instant they just let go, brush themselves off, and act like nothing has happened. The same child in a similar situation, on seeing the opportunity to get attention, may burst into tears and run to the arms of a parent.
Or have you ever watched a young child get furious with a playmate or a parent, and even say something like, “I hate you and will never speak to you again,” and then, just a few minutes later, the child feels and acts as though nothing at all has happened?
This natural ability to release our emotions was lost to most of us because, even though we did it automatically as young children, without conscious control, our parents, teachers, friends, and society as a whole trained us out of it as we got older. In fact, it is because we were unconscious of our ability to release that it was possible to train us to hold on. Every time we were told “no,” told to behave, to sit still and be quiet, to stop squirming, that “big boys don’t cry” or “big girls don’t get angry,” and to grow up and be responsible, we learned to suppress our emotions or express them inappropriately.
Furthermore, we were often seen as an adult when we got to the point where we were good at suppressing our natural exuberance for life and all the feelings that others convinced us to believe were unacceptable. We became more responsible to others’ expectations of us than to the needs of our own emotional well-being.
There is a joke that aptly illustrates this point: for the first two years of a child’s life, everyone around them is trying to get them to walk and talk, and for the next eighteen years, everyone’s trying to get them to sit down and shut up.
