Validated and proven effective by a Harvard Medical School study and results from tens of thousands of people throughout the world for over a quarter of a century, The Sedona Method is a quick, easy, highly-effective, yet elegant way for you to protect and expand your sense of inner security and well-being-even in today's challenging and demanding environment.The Sedona Method will show you how to access your natural ability to let go of any unwanted thought or feeling on the spot-even when you are right in the middle of life's greatest challenges. This will free you to quickly and easily have all that you choose. In short, The Sedona Method will show you how to enjoy living a happier, more productive, more satisfying, more loving and joyous life.

Because our world has changed so radically, letting go is a critical survival skill that we all need in order to maintain and expand upon the life that up until now we may have taken for granted. Tapping your natural ability to release will allow you to produce results far beyond what you could achieve with any other transformational tool available today. In fact, the results will often seem quite miraculous. We realize that these claims may sound extravagant; however, if you are open, you can attain an inner mastery and true happiness you never dreamed possible. This can all be yours, because The Sedona Method is not another "should" or external "fix." It is a powerful way for you to transform yourself from the inside out, easily and permanently.

I took Sedona Method classes with Maya Zack in Brighton a couple of years ago to see how the process would work on some of the stresses I was under at the time and found the experience really rewarding and the techniques I learned helpful for all manner of things, so decided to give the book a read.

In essence the Sedona Method simply involves asking yourself a series of questions about your feelings or whatever the situation is that you want to release along the lines of the following:

  • Could I let this go?
  • Would I let it go?
  • When?

Really simple stuff, but powerful, as repeatedly asking yourself these questions unwraps layers of beliefs that we have about ourselves, and our issues, like an onion, to get to the core of the situation, which according to the Sedona Method is one of either a need for control, security or approval.

There are some wishy washy “open yourself up to the Universe and it shall provide” anecdotes in the book, such as the story about a struggling nail technician who upon releasing on their monetary issues, the Universe opened up and suddenly the work coming in, and the money they were making doubled! Reading her story, to me it looked more like the Sedona Method helped her remove a blockage she was carrying about moving forwards, which let her actually advertise her business and then the advert then bought in new clients. This shouldn’t put you off, regardless of your belief system though as it is still evidence the Sedona Method works.

The book covered the process to a good depth and covered more aspects and ways of using the method than I found in the classes I took but ultimately was a good refresher. I recommend it to anyone who’s having issues letting go of something or is struggling to move forwards or just want to clear out the cupboards of the mind from all the cobwebs that have gathered in it over the years! I hope to continue releasing through my day to day and would love to attend one of their 7 day seminars if I’m ever in the right place!
