Many of us were surprised and/or dismayed by the results of the election in the United States. Whether we voted as Democrats or Republicans we need to embrace each others points of view and move forward as One Nation! One of the best ways I know to move forward in harmony is for all of us to let go of the pain and suffering, disappointment and even pride in our hearts and love even those who oppose us or see the world from a different point of view. I will be doing what I can to support us all in this transition. Including but not limited to all of the following:
For the first time every you can watch the first night of a Sedona Method Retreat live as it happens with absolutely no cost or obligation to you.
This will not have the drama of the first presidential debate but it will be a lot less stressful and of course a lot more fun. You can also use this evening to release on the endless election :)
You will be able to participate from home and begin the process of leaning how to help yourself and others with Sedona Method. You will watch me describe the course and how it will unfold.
I will be jumping right in and going over two very powerful processes to do before and after releasing sessions that you can use throughout your life to improve everything and make everything easier, more fun and even more abundant.
All you need to do is register at www.Sedona.com/Free-Sunday and you can dive into the great beauty and benefit that is a Sedona Method Retreat for FREE.
I look forward to participating with you Sunday night October 2nd, 7:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time through about 9:30 PM Pacific Daylight Time.
PS. You will need to add some personal information including address and email. We are doing registrations so that we can make sure accommodate everyone and because we would like to give everyone copies of two of the key handouts on the retreat. Places will be filled on a first come first served basis. Register today at www.Sedona.com/Free-Sunday..
Most of us have long lists of things we think we should or should not be doing. When we “should” on ourselves in this way it generates resistance, making it harder to accomplish what we choose and refrain from things we want to avoid.
In this new Peer to Peer Release video below we explore how we can help ourselves, and those we care about, to stop “shoulding” on ourselves and free ourselves to have, be, and do whatever we choose with greater ease, power, and joy.
Questions to use with yourself and with your partner:
1. Could you welcome a way you are “shoulding” on yourself in your life?
2. Could you let go of “shoulding” on yourself as best you can?
3. Could you allow yourself to be open to doing or not doing whatever that is and knowing all is okay either way?
We live in uniquely uncertain times. This background of uncertainty magnifies our own inner uncertainties to the point that it can sometimes get more difficult to function and thrive.
In this brand new Peer to Peer release we explore how to release our uncertainty and open ourselves and those we care about to our own Intuitive Knowingness and clear reason. In doing this we help each other to navigate whatever challenges we face in life with greater ease, power, and joy.
Questions to use with yourself and with your partner:
1. Could you welcome any uncertainty you are feeling in this moment?
2. Could you let go of the feeling of uncertainty?
3. Could you allow yourself to welcome your inner certainty – your Intuitive Knowingness and clear reason?
These words from the Pharrell Williams song, “Happy,” can point you toward discovering the truth of who or what you are.
We live our lives as though if we could have, be, or do more, then sometime in the future we would be happy. When we live our lives based on this misconception, we obscure what is obvious. Happiness is our basic nature.
As you explore this for yourself, you will discover that when you appear to get happiness from outside yourself, it is just a trick of the mind to keep you looking away from the happiness that is already right here, right now.
You can explore this in two ways. One, simply catch yourself when you are postponing happiness “until” or, two, think of those things you believe you need to have, be, or do in order to be happy. Then follow this simple exploration. “In this moment can I allow myself to give myself the happiness I think I will get from that person, place, or thing directly?” You will discover you can give yourself unlimited happiness now.
Once you start to discover you can give yourself happiness directly, two things happen. You see that you do not need to wait to be happy, because it is just a choice right now. You also discover that it is actually easier to get whatever it is you would like from life if you allow yourself to be happy first—even before you achieve that goal.
As you dig even deeper you will start to discover the reason you can give yourself happiness is because there is no separation between you and happiness itself. You are the happiness you have been seeking from outside of yourself. You can deepen this exploration by asking yourself: “Could I allow myself to fully welcome or rest as the happiness that I am?”
Another great pointer in Pharrell’s song is: “…You feel like a room without a roof…”
When we are truly happy, we feel like there are no limits except the ones that we are imposing on ourselves. We live life from a much more vertical perspective where even the sky is not a limit. You have probably already noticed that whenever you let go, you feel a little or a lot happier. You are letting go of the barriers you have erected in your own consciousness to experiencing and living as happiness, peace, and joy.
As you explore this on your own, you’ll feel like your heart is dancing like the people in the Pharrell video.
This is the type of material we explore in all our retreats and especially The Advanced Retreat coming up in April.
Please join me this April for the Advanced Retreat if you have already attended a 6-, 7-, or 9-Day Sedona Method Retreat so we can deepen our exploration of truth together and support each other in being Freedom itself.
P.S. If you have not yet attended a retreat and/or you are simply ready to make a quantum leap forward in your happiness, peace and joy, please come in June so you will qualify to attend next time we do an Advanced Retreat. You can enroll at http://www.sedona.com/June2016Retreat.
Most of the time we go from experience to experience missing the essential nature of every experience. Because we have missed the richness and beauty that lies at the heart of every experience, we feel empty inside and mistakenly believe that if we simply change what we are experiencing all will be well again.
When we focus on fixing or changing our experience we only feel more isolated and our experiences feel less satisfying. This causes us to crave more and better experiences which simply reinforces the same feeling of lack and incompleteness. There is no satisfaction in any external experience in and of itself.
When we allow ourselves to look beyond the experience of the moment into its essence we discover an aliveness, peace, and joy that is indescribable.
This is because we are actually touching the very nature of experience which is the bridge beyond mere experiencing.
This changeless essence in every experience is Beingness, Awareness, and Love.
This may not seem obvious at first, however if we pay attention we can look through the experience to this pure Beingness/Awareness/Love that is always right here right now no matter what is being experienced.
The more we simply welcome, allow, or simply give our loving attention to this the more obvious this becomes and the more we are drawn into this beautiful heart of All.
Please do not take my word for this. Simply pay attention to this in your life and allow its magic to unfold within you.
This is the type of material we explore in all our retreats and especially The Advanced Retreat coming in April.
Please join me this April for the Advannced Retreat if you have already attended a 6, 7 or 9 Day Sedona Method Retreat so we can deepen our exploration of truth together and support each other in being Freedom itself.
We believe that we are a body in a world that is separate and hostile to us.
We have forgotten that all we experience is as real as the dreams we had last night. And just like in last night’s dreams, the everyday world and everyone living in it are contained in our own consciousness.
If we are interested in being fully alive as opposed to living in the waking dream, it is important to discover that all we experience is merely the surface of the mind. And for most of us, the surface of our minds are quite turbulent with trial and tribulation — even when things appear to be going our way.
A great way to discover that we are not as limited to or bound by this dream as we appear to be is to inquire into its nature. A great question to use for this is simply, “What is beyond?
This question is not only helpful in our awakening from limitation, it is also very helpful in everyday life. Often we take our daily challenges and limiting beliefs about ourselves and what is possible for us at face value. Yet if we simply inquire what is beyond that which is appearing in this moment, our illusions begin to melt in the light of awareness. This helps us to deal with whatever challenge we are facing in this moment with greater ease and clarity.
The question of, “What is beyond?” is also a very powerful contemplation or meditation. It can help you to see through whatever limitation you appear to be experiencing in this moment and see to the living truth that is always right beyond it.
The more you inquire the more you discover all that appeared so real and solid is only an appearance. The One Reality begins to shine through into your waking consciousness.
Explore this question for yourself and discover its power to free you on every level.
This is the type of material we explore in all our retreats, and especially on the Advanced Retreat we are having this April.
The Advanced Retreat is designed to help you uncover and live that presence of awareness or Beingness that is your basic nature. It is open to anyone who has already attended a 6-, 7- or 9-Day Sedona Method Retreat.
