This is the most engaging part of this course. It also contains the largest reading material and 1 video to watch. Please, please do not skip this step or get overwhelmed by its size. I promise you this step will change your life!!!
Allow it to!
As I promised you in Step 3 I am now going to show you how to deal with self-defeating, negative and counter-productive feelings. In fact I am about to teach you how to instantly eliminate negative blocks to your success and instantly overcome any negative thoughts about your goals as they arise in the moment.
You are literally about to remove every block in the way of your success and goal attainment.
The first step is to create a simple affirmation that encapsulates your goals as being an already established fact.
You are going to use this affirmation in a very different way from the conventional use of affirmations. You will not repeat them mindlessly nor will you repeat it with emotion or use it as a motivational tool.
You will use your affirmation to evoke negativity around your goal! Although it may seem counterproductive to seek out negative feelings and thoughts about your goal I promise you that this could be the most powerful part of this course for you if you use it regularly.
Although it may not seem obvious to you why we do this now (and even at the end of this particular step) you will soon see how using affirmations as a way of accessing your negative thoughts & emotions can guarantee you eliminate blocks to your success and also speed up the manifestation process.
Let’s get to it.
Affirmations Don’t WorkIf you have ever tried to change your life or circumstances through the use affirmations before then you know all too well that using affirmations doesn’t work – at least not if you use them the conventional way.
As we near the end of this powerful short course you will taught the most powerful way to use affirmations to skyrocket your success.
In fact this is the only way that I have found to make affirmations useful.
Simply reciting an affirmation over and over or using it to try to convince you that something is true (which is clearly not) most times has the opposite effect and actually manifests more of what you don’t want.
However, affirmations can be powerful tools for finding negative internal programs that blocking your success. This is how we will use them in this course.
If you have had success using affirmations in the past and wish to use them again as a means of reprogramming the subconscious mind that is fine. However I would structure them slightly different from the way you are probably used to.
Affirming the PositiveThis short section is for anyone who wants to use affirmations in their tradition form. Even if you don’t plan to use affirmations along with your visualizations it will be helpful to read this section before moving on the one below it.
As I discussed in Step 2 it can be difficult to think of your goal as having already been accomplished and existing in the “now”. So you may find it better to create a short affirmation that confirms that your goal is unfolding and materializing rather than having already materialized.
This avoids the unwanted negative emotions that are very often associated with affirmations that claim you have already achieved your goal.
An example of a traditional monetary affirmation may be:
I earn $100,000 per year.
This can be problematic if you are currently earning $30,000 per year and have a stack of bills pilling up with no way to pay them.
If you are in such a situation and are a normal mortal like the rest of us then reciting the above affirmation over and over again will you must you angry, depressed or hopeless as your subconscious mind rebels against the inaccuracy of the statement.
The affirmation in almost every case will simply serve to keep you stuck in your current situation because it reminds you of how far you actually really are from having that goal.
A much better way to form that affirmation would be to state:
Every day I’m getting closer to earning $100,000 per year.
This does not cause a conflict with your current reality nor will it stir up any resistance from your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind will find it perfectly easy to accept that every day you are getting closer to your goal and will exactly start to believe it and create that reality when you add the next ingredient to the goal mix.
It will also start giving you suggestions about how you can actually start to get closer to that earning figure and will alert your conscious mind to potentialities for earning that amount (or a stepping-stone amount) when such potentialities appear.
It can also be helpful to write this affirmation of a small plain card, that will fit into your pocket.
If you chose to use an hourly timer to remind yourself to think of your goal then the mere act of touching the card in your pocket will bring the affirmation to mind once you have it memorized.
Creating an a Block Busting AffirmationEven if you choose to use an affirmation in the traditional way as described above, from now on you are mainly going to use the power of affirmations as a means of finding and eliminating negative blocks to your success.
You will use a predefined affirmation as a type of mental diagnostic tool for locating and removing anything standing between you and your goal. Think of it as an anti-virus program for the brain.
If you look at your computer’s anti-virus software as an example you will see that before it can remove viruses from your computer it must first run a diagnostic check on key system areas so it can find where the viruses are hiding and blocking key programs from functioning correctly.
You will use your affirmation in a similar way to find your own mental viruses that are blocking you from getting what you want.
For this purpose I want you to create an affirmation that states quite positively that your goal is already materialized and 100% present in your life. I realise that this is the exact opposite of the instructions given above but this is because you will use this particular affirmation in a very different way than you have been taught to use affirmations before.
So sit down now and create a short and concise 1 or 2 sentence affirmation that fully represents your goal as existing in the present. It should be a simple statement of fact. Make it short enough so you can memorize it and easily recite it to yourself throughout the day.
For example if you currently weigh 200lbs but have a weight loss goal that involves reaching 130lbs while getting fit you could state:
“I weigh 130lbs, with low body fat and toned muscles.”
If we revisit the financial goal mentioned in an earlier section above, where you were told to word your affirmation in a way that implied you were only getting closer to your goal, this time you will want to use the conventional affirmation structure or style for this exercise; stating that your goal has already been accomplished.
I earn $100,000 per year.
Although it is not appropriate to use this present tense style of affirmation for programming the subconscious mind, as we already discussed, it is a great method for evoking negative thoughts and emotions that you subconsciously hold about that goal.
Once we have uncovered these negative blocks we can then quickly remove them using a very special process. Once the blocks are removed your subconscious mind is freed-up to start manifesting what you want.
So once you have created an affirmation that represents your goal as having already been accomplished write it on a small card or piece of paper that you can look at twice per day.
Set aside 2 times during the day when you can read your affirmation aloud. I personally do this after my visualizations in the morning and just before retiring at night but you can choose any time that is convenient for you.
How to Eliminate Blocks to Your Goals Instantly!You are now going to use your newly formed affirmation to bring up out of your subconscious mind all the negative mental programs that are blocking your goal from materializing. Once uncovered you can easily eliminate them with the process outlined below.
To eliminate mental viruses blocking you from having what you want you will use a process known as “The Sedona Method”, also known as “The Release Technique”.
This simple process was created by American Master Lester Levenson as a means of eliminating any type of negativity on the spot. It is without a doubt the most powerful self improvement tool on the planet. Think of EFT on steroids and you get some idea of its power.
There are entire courses and advanced courses showing you ways to use this powerful technique to create amazing changes in your life but at its core it is extremely simple. I do not have the resources, nor the right, to share all the advance uses of this technique with you.
However, I will show you the basics of the technique and, along with the other steps in this course, the basics will be more than enough to clear away any blocks to your goal achievement.
Should you wish to learn more about The Sedona Method and The Release Technique (and the differences between the teachings associated with each) you can read a review of both here.
You will use this “releasing” technique to find and eliminate your blocks to success and to identify and eliminate anything that is stopping you from achieving your goals.
As part of this course you will learn how to use “releasing” to identify and eliminate any mental or emotional block to achieving the specific goal you are now working towards.
But before you can do that you need to understand the basic principle of the technique.
To help you learn this simple technique please review the 2 videos below.
I have also added a written description of the process of actual using the technique.
The demonstration of using the technique starts at point 19.50 in the video 1 though I recommend you watch all 30 minutes if you have time.
This will be the best and most productive time you have ever spent in your life!
In video 2 once you reach the 5.00 minute mark you can skip ahead to position 11.20.
How to ReleaseHere is the written version of the releasing exercise demonstrated in the video above reproduced from Sedona Associates website. If you have already watched the video and wish to skip ahead go to the section Releasing With Your Affirmation below.
Let me explain the technique more thoroughly by asking you to participate in a simple exercise. Pick up a pen, a pencil, or some small object that you would be willing to drop without giving it a second thought. Now, hold it in front of you and really grip it tightly. Pretend this is one of your limiting feelings and that your hand represents your gut or your consciousness. If you held the object long enough, this would start to feel uncomfortable yet familiar.
Now, open your hand and roll the object around in it. Notice that you are the one holding on to it; it is not attached to your hand. The same is true with your feelings, too. Your feelings are as attached to you as this object is attached to your hand.
We hold on to our feelings and forget that we are holding on to them. It’s even in our language. When we feel angry or sad, we don’t usually say, “I feel angry,” or, “I feel sad.” We say, “I am angry,” or, “I am sad.” Without realizing it, we are misidentifying that we are the feeling. Often, we believe a feeling is holding on to us. This is not true… we are always in control and just don’t know it.
Now, let the object go.
What happened? You let go of the object, and it dropped to the floor. Was that hard? Of course not. That’s what we mean when we say “let go.”
You can do the same thing with any emotion: choose to let it go.
Sticking with this same analogy: If you walked around with your hand open, wouldn’t it be very difficult to hold on to the pen or other object you’re holding? Likewise, when you allow or welcome a feeling, you are opening your consciousness, and this enables the feeling to drop away all by itself—like the clouds passing in the sky or smoke passing up a chimney with the flue open. It is as though you are removing the lid from a pressure cooker.
Now, if you took the same object—a pencil, pen, or pebble—and magnified it large enough, it would appear more and more like empty space. You would be looking into the gaps between the molecules and atoms. When you dive into the very core of a feeling, you will observe a comparable phenomenon: nothing is really there.
As you master the technique of releasing, you will discover that even your deepest feelings are just on the surface. At the core you are empty, silent, and at peace—not in the pain and darkness that most of us would assume. In fact, even our most extreme feelings have only as much substance as a soap bubble. And you know what happens when you poke your finger into a soap bubble: it pops. That’s exactly what happens when you dive into the core of a feeling.
Please keep these three analogies in mind as we go through the releasing process together. Releasing will help you to free yourself from all of your unwanted patterns of behavior, thought, and feeling. All that is required from you is being as open as you can be to the process. Releasing is a simple technique will free you to access clearer thinking, yet it is not a thinking process. Although it will help you to access heightened creativity, you don’t need to be particularly creative to be effective at doing it.
You will get the most out of the process of releasing the more you allow yourself to see, hear, and feel it working, rather than by thinking about how and why it works. Lead, as best you can, with your heart, not your head. If you find yourself getting a little stuck in trying to figure it out, you can use the identical process to let go of “wanting to figure it out.” Guaranteed, as you work with this process, you will understand it more fully by having the direct experience of doing it.
So here we go.
Choosing to Let GoMake yourself comfortable and focus inwardly. Your eyes may be open or closed.
Step 1: Focus on an issue that you would like to feel better about, and then allow yourself to feel whatever you are feeling in this moment. This doesn’t have to be a strong feeling. In fact, you can even check on how you feel about this exercise and what you want to get from it. Just welcome the feeling and allow it to be as fully or as best you can.
This instruction may seem simplistic, but it needs to be. Most of us live in our thoughts, pictures, and stories about the past and the future, rather than being aware of how we actually feel in this moment. The only time that we can actually do anything about the way we feel (and, for that matter, about our businesses or our lives) is NOW. You don’t need to wait for a feeling to be strong before you let it go. In fact, if you are feeling numb, flat, blank, cut off, or empty inside, those are feelings that can be let go of just as easily as the more recognizable ones. Simply do the best you can. The more you work with this process, the easier it will be for you to identify what you are feeling.
Step 2: Ask yourself one of the following three questions:
• Could I let this feeling go?
• Could I allow this feeling to be here?
• Could I welcome this feeling?
These questions are merely asking you if it is possible to take this action. “Yes” or “no” are both acceptable answers. You will often let go even if you say “no.” As best you can, answer the question that you choose with a minimum of thought, staying away from second-guessing yourself or getting into an internal debate about the merits of that action or its consequences.
All the questions used in this process are deliberately simple. They are not important in and of themselves but are designed to point you to the experience of letting go, to the experience of stopping holding on. Go on to Step 3 no matter how you answered the first question.
Step 3: No matter which question you started with, ask yourself this simple question: Would I? In other words: Am I willing to let go?
Again, stay away from debate as best you can. Also remember that you are always doing this process for yourself—for the purpose of gaining your own freedom and clarity. It doesn’t matter whether the feeling is justified, long-standing, or right.
If the answer is “no,” or if you are not sure, ask yourself: “Would I rather have this feeling, or would I rather be free?”
Even if the answer is still “no,” go on to Step 4.
Step 4: Ask yourself this simpler question: When?
This is an invitation to just let it go NOW. You may find yourself easily letting go. Remember that letting go is a decision you can make any time you choose.
Step 5: Repeat the preceding four steps as often as needed until you feel free of that particular feeling.
You will probably find yourself letting go a little more on each step of the process. The results at first may be quite subtle. Very quickly, if you are persistent, the results will get more and more noticeable. You may find that you have layers of feelings about a particular topic. However, what you let go of is gone for good.
Releasing With Your AffirmationNow that you know how to release you can use it to remove all negativity surrounding your goal.
Twice per day sit for 5 – 10 minutes with your written affirmation. Speak your affirmation aloud and wait to see if any negativity arises.
When a negative feeling comes up, let it go. If no negative feelings come up you can release on that non-feeling as well.
Do this for approximately 5 to 10 minutes or until you feel good about your goal. Never stop the exercise on a negative feeling. Always release to a positive place before you stop.
This will keep you in a positive attitude throughout the day making the other steps of the D.R.E.A.M.S. System successful and almost effortless.
If you continue to do the exercise and feel only positive then do not go looking for negative feelings. Just allow yourself to feel good.
You may also find similar negative feelings arise again and again. Please be assured that these are not the same negative feelings and thoughts that you previously released. They may feel the same but negative subconscious programming is often like an onion with many layers. Just keep going until you get clear and positive on the issue.
Summing Up Step 5So to be clear about how this step works I will summarize it below.
1. (optional) If you choose to use an affirmation to help reprogram your subconscious mind never word it in the present tense. Instead word it in a way that implies you are getting closer to your goal every day.
Example: “Every day in every way I am getting closer to my goal.”
2. Create an affirmation that states that your goal has already been accomplished.
Example: “I have already reached my goal.”
3. Twice daily speak this goal aloud and release the negative feelings that come up as outlined above. Do this until you feel positive about the goal. Repeat daily.
In the final part of the course, Step 6, you are going to learn how to drive your goal deeper into your subconscious mind and how to command it to manifest your goal into reality.
