day? Try abstaining, and trust that if anything major

you. At that point, you can choose to read an article

Do you have well-meaning relatives who urge you not
to follow your dreams because they fear the
consequences of the risks you’ll take to achieve your

expression of their love and concern for you. The

To attract what you want in life, you must live in a
state of love, joy and gratitude. Negative environments
stir up feelings of fear, anxiety and doubt, which must
be released so that you can return to a higher state of
feeling and vibration.
The Sedona Method , created by Hale Dwoskin, offers a
fast and effective solution to the need to release
Start by tuning in to the feeling that is disturbing you.
Really feel the emotion – welcome it and let it flood
Then ask yourself, “Could I let it [the feeling] go?”
Both “yes” and “no” are acceptable answers.
Next, ask, “Would I let it go?” If your answer is “no,”
ask whether you would rather have this feeling or
would you rather be free.
Finally, ask, “When?” This is an invitation to let the
feeling go now. You can make the decision to release a
feeling anytime you want. Repeat the entire process as
often as needed until you feel free of that particular

or they try to resist experiencing negative feelings.
Neither approach works. Use the Sedona Method to
allow your emotions to flow through you, so that you
can return to a positive state
Tip #3: The Evening Review
Whatever you read, see, listen to, talk about and
experience during the last 45 minutes of your evening
has a huge influence on your sleep and your next day.
During the night, your unconscious mind replays and
processes this late-night input up to six times more
often than anything else you experienced during the
day. Use the following process to focus your

mind to show you where you could have been more
effective, more conscious, more loving, more assertive,
or more of any other characteristic you want to focus
on. (Note: review only one characteristic at a time).
You’ll see that a number of events from the day will
come to mind. Observe them without any self-
criticism. Then take each incident and replay in it in
your mind the way you would have preferred to have
done it. This will help you form the desired behavior
the next time you face the same situation

Before you leave work or go to bed, take a few
minutes to plan your schedule for the following day.

situation you will encounter. This gives your
subconscious all night to work on creating ways to
make it all happen just as you visualized it.
