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.

  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. 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.

  1. Yes it does. I tried it actually this afternoon – just tried it out – the way I understood the questions (watched “letting go”). After which I felt empty in a good way. Empty like I appreciate life better, I appreciate life as it is. I found peace. I have been depressed for about a month now, and its honestly embarrassing to realize that I can heal, I can let go in just a short period of time. Though I was honestly on my way to recovery i think (because it comes and goes). .. the exercise proved to be the clincher. The feeling is actually magnificent and empowering.

    In the evening I tried it again .. . it didnt feel like it did in the afternoon, and i realised why . . .. because i no longer have the pain inside me thats why I could not release any.

    Allow me to take this opportunity to thank you for responding right away, as well as for making this website. I know that this simple website is intended to help people to heal. And there are a lot – specially women – who will really appreciate this.

    Thanks again.

    • My pleasure Niel, and congratulations! Having found peace, you can always find it again, as it’s there under the surface all the time!

      Joyfully, May

  2. Just a question.

    On step 2. 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? <— What does this mean? Lets say I am sad because a friend that i love left me. What do I welcome any wanting to do anything? Does this mean just the wanting to do something about it? To correct it? Or I just let my feelings wander, wanting to make her stay or something? Or corrective that I want to accept it and be happy again on my own?

    On step 3.
    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?

    What does this mean? That I admit to myself that this is my feeling?

    I would really appreciate your reply.

    Thanks.

    • Niel, thanks for your questions!

      The 3 questions simply ask you to notice what you are experiencing around: “being sad because a friend that I love left me”. The purpose of the questions is to help you notice lots of aspects of your response to the situation – as prompted by the 3 questions, before finally letting go.

      You don’t need to DO anything beyond noticing what’s there for you. If you don’t feel able to ‘welcome’, just ‘notice’ things instead.

      Question 2. helps you notice all the things you want to do about your situation – all the things you listed above – wanting to do something, wanting to correct it, make her stay… etc.

      There’s no judgement or analysis – simply notice what comes up for you as you consider the question. So, as you suggest, just let your mind wander and notice everything that comes up for you.

      If the thought of accepting the situation and being happy again on your own comes up that’s fine, however you don’t need to think through what you ‘should’ do. If you find yourself trying to ‘figure it all out’ – what caused it, how to resolve the situation – just notice that too.

      WANTING things to be different manifests as more wanting things to be different – so it’s good to let go of the wanting (when you let go of everything in the final question ‘Could I simply let go?’), so you can have things actually be different.

      Question 3. helps you notice anything about the situation that feels personal to you, eg that it’s your situation, your problem, it’s all about you. This comes from theperspective that ultimately we are all connected to the same Source, so in that sense nothing is personal – we’re all in it together!

      Does this help?

      Joyfully, May
