Sedona Method “releasing about a person” exercise

The Cleanup Procedure

1. Begin by visualising the face of the person you have chosen to release about.

2. Then ask yourself the following questions one at a time allowing your underlying wants to surface. Start with the set of questions about control and stay with that question until you feel that you can “grant that person the right to be”the way he or she is. Most times, completely letting go is just a decision. If you’re open to it, it’s possible to reach this point very quickly, but take all the time you need.

Control

1. Did this person try to control you? Or did it feel that way? Pause to allow for spontaneous release or ask one of the following questions

  • If so, could you let go now of wanting to control them back?
  • If so, could you let go of resisting them?
  • If so, would you like to change that?

2. Did you try to control this person? Pause to allow for spontaneous release or ask one of the following questions

  • If so, could you let go now of wanting to control them?
  • If so, could you like to change that?

3. Do you now grant this person the right to be as this person is? Remember that the third question is simply a decision.

Approval

1. Did you dislike or disapprove of anything in this person? Pause to allow for spontaneous release or ask one of the following questions

  • Could you let go, just for now, of your dislike or disapproval of this person
  • If so, would you like to change that?

2. Did this person dislike or disapprove of anything in you? Or did it feel that way? Pause to allow for spontaneous release or ask one of the following questions

  • Could you let go of wanting their approval?
  • If so, would you like to change that?

3. Do you have only love/acceptance feelings for this person? Remember that the third question is simply a decision.

Security / Survival

1. Did this person challenge, oppose or threaten you? Or did it feel that way? Pause to allow for spontaneous release or ask one of the following questions

  • Could you let go of wanting to challenge, oppose of threaten them back?
  • Could you let go of wanting security with this person?
  • If so, would you like to change that?

Did you challenge, oppose or threaten you? Or did it feel that way? Pause to allow for spontaneous release or ask one of the following questions

  • Could you let go of wanting to challenge, oppose of threaten this person
  • Could you let go of wanting to protect yourself in this way?
  • If so, would you like to change that?

Do you have only a feeling of well-being, safety and trust with this person? Remember that the third question is simply a decision.

N.B When you feel threatened, you’re giving your power away to another person and he or she can sense it and acts accordingly. If you’re feeling insecure, other people feel more powerful because they know intuitively that they can control, manipulate and threaten you.
