Whether you’re a seasoned Sedona releaser, or new to the Method, the Triple Welcome is a powerful way to release whatever you are experiencing as uncomfortable, and reveal the bed of stillness that’s always present below the surface.
With the Sedona Method of releasing, or letting go, you simply ask yourself questions, and allow yourself to respond ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to each question.
Your response to each question is simply a decision. Just as you can decide whether or not to let go of a pencil you are clutching, you can decide to let go of feelings and sensations.
Releasing gets easier once you appreciate your feelings aren’t you. Saying ‘I’m angry’, though very common, is misleading – I am not the anger – it’s really more accurate to say ‘I feel angry’. As you become more aware that feelings are something you experience, that they aren’t you, it gets easier to say ‘Yes’ to letting them go.
Each time you respond to a releasing question, with either a ‘Yes’ or a ‘No’, you are letting go of some of the uncomfortable feelings, and coming closer to the peace that’s always there below the surface.
Like to give it a try?
Think of something in your life that you would like to be different. Perhaps something you feel anxious or sad about, or frustrated or angry.
Then use the three questions that follow to triple welcome the whole ‘package’ of the issue. You can either ask them of yourself (in your head is fine), or get someone to ask you the questions. Allow yourself to pause after each question, so you fully notice or welcome all that arises.
If you find it difficult to ‘welcome’ what arises, perhaps for an issue you feel very angry about, simply use the word ‘notice’ instead. I’ve tried this, and the release is just as effective.
- Could you welcome (or notice) how you are feeling in this moment? Could you also welcome any pictures, sounds, or sensations that come with that?
- Could you welcome (or notice) any wanting to do anything with any of that? Any wanting to change it, push it away, or hold onto it?
- Could you welcome (or notice) any sense that this is your feeling, that it’s personal, or that it has anything to do with you?
Then, ask yourself:
- In this moment, could you simply let go?
You’ll probably notice some lightness or expansion or ease.
Now reconsider your issue, and if there’s still some discomfort, just work through the questions again.
I’ve found this method of welcoming all aspects of the issue works more quickly than focusing on one feeling at a time.
