Happiness Is Easier Than You Think: The Sedona Method And The Art Of Letting Go With Hale Dwoskin
Our guest for this episode is Hale Dwoskin and I am excited to have Hale on the show. Now that might sound like a disingenuous statement because what host is ever going to say anything other than that. The reason that is a completely authentic and genuine comment is I’ve been a fan of and practitioner of The Sedona Method and Hale is the Founder of that method. I’m a bit of a fanboy, I have to say. Let me tell you a little bit about Hale before we dive in. Hale Dwoskin is the author of the New York Times bestseller, The Sedona Method and the Coauthor of Happiness Is Free: And It’s Easier Than You Think with Lester Levenson, his mentor.
He’s one of the featured teachers in the book and movie phenomenon, The Secret, as well as a featured teacher in The Greatest Secret. He’s also featured in the movie Letting Go. Hale is the Director of Training, Chief Teacher and Spokesperson of Sedona Training Associates, an organization created to promote the emotional releasing techniques inspired by his friend, mentor and teacher, Lester Levenson. He is also a Founding Member of the Transformational Leadership Council, of which I am also a member although not a founding one. It’s a great pleasure to have you here, Hale.

It’s my pleasure. Thanks for having me.
Let’s start with a high–level overview and see where that takes us. In that little bio, there are several modest promises like happiness is easier than you think, it’s free and you’re all about helping people to alleviate suffering and discover the truth of who they are. Those are big statements. What is The Sedona Method? How does it fit in with those great goals?
The Sedona Method is a very simple yet powerful set of tools that shows you how to access and master a natural ability that we all have. That natural ability is to let go of the thoughts, the feelings, the beliefs, the attitudes, the ideas that hold us back from performing at our best, from feeling our best from great relationships and radiant health. All of us have things we know we should be doing, we could be doing or we shouldn’t be doing but yet we’re still doing. There’s usually something inside of us that we’re not recognized, seen or dealt with that’s preventing us from having more money, better relationships, better health and recognizing our true essence. The Sedona Method over the past few decades has perfected a system for basically getting yourself out of your own way and then getting thus self out of the way. You can be free and be fully alive or be that which you truly are and because it’s natural, once you learn how to do it, you need the techniques less and less. It becomes a part of your living experience, something you can do whenever you need to.
There’s the idea of letting go and then there’s the practice of letting go. The idea is something that we can understand. It’s even in our vernacular. Let it go already. We say that to each other and then you’ve got the Disney Movie Frozen with Let It Go is the big anthem of that so there’s a difference between the idea of it and the practice of it. It’s not enough to say, “Let it go,” or the other comment that I hear people make a lot is, “I’m trying to let it go,” which is a problematic statement.
Lester Levenson used to say, “Trying is wanting approval for something you have no intention of doing.”
Shouldn’t we be trying?
No. We can endeavor to do something. Usually, we say to someone, if you examine your own direct experience, you say, “I try to remember that. I tried to stop doing that.” You’re either doing it or you’re not. It’s that simple. Usually, we don’t say I tried unless we’re trying to make an excuse for having either not stopped doing something or having not started to do something. Otherwise, that doesn’t usually come up in our vernacular. It doesn’t come up in conversation.
It’s not our typical daily vernacular for sure but it’s the same point from a business perspective. The typical business person, if there is such a thing, we’ve been trained to believe that it’s all about the effort. It’s the effort that you put in. It’s the persistence and the drive–through of all obstacles to persevere. Most of us think of that as a positive and necessary thing. In some contexts, it is.
An effort is required at the beginning of any endeavor to overcome the inertia of not efforting and not taking action, of not breaking through into a new way of doing or being or having. Effort in and of itself, it’s not the problem but where we get into a problem is we are usually making the wrong effort. We’re efforting to manipulate instead of to guide. We’re efforting to push against the world instead of working with where the world is. We’re efforting to get our business to change instead of taking the actions that are required to make the change and so pushing is not necessary. Efforting, taking action, a thought or evaluation, right knowledge, that’s all necessary but the subtle manipulations we get into within ourselves and within our organizations often are counterproductive.
When we’re genuinely moving in a positive direction, what happens is there’s a momentum that builds. The people come to our support both within our organization and opportunities from without the organization. It relates to your topic, which is love is just good business. When you’re operating from what I consider the natural state of love, even though that’s not usually how most people see it then there’s this sense of cooperation and harmony and finding a solution that’s a win-win for everyone. As opposed to the manipulation or the effort was the struggle. You have a lot more power when you’re working from love than when you’re working from effort or mind or resistance.
The Sedona Method is a way of helping people to sort all that out but that’s not it either. It’s not intellectual.
That’s more thinking about it. It’s a way to drop the resistance that causes us to not move forward. It’s a way of dropping the anger that causes us to do things out of spite or to not do things, even though we know that will benefit us or our organization. It’s a way to drop our self-doubt. I haven’t done this before. I don’t know if I can do it. It’s a way for us to drop our anxiousness or anxiety about producing a result or going into a new situation. It’s a way for us to drop the contracted feeling or the stress that we feel when things aren’t going our way. Sometimes even when things are, we still feel burnt out by the end of the day because we were pushing through it as opposed to flowing in harmony with what was happening moment to moment.
That letting go, as you master it, what it does is it becomes a living aid in everything that you’re doing moment to moment. Successful business people tend to make decisions relatively quickly and the beginning part of releasing is a decision. Would I rather keep struggling with this or I’d rather let it go? Business people usually go, “I’d rather let it go,” and they do. I’ve found that when business people especially successful ones were in this, they fly with it. They let go much more easily than people who aren’t as busy or as engaged in activity as they are.
That question, that choice is one that most of us don’t even know we have. Do I want to keep this? Do I want to it go? We don’t even ask ourselves that question. I’m thinking through the course of a typical day how many times do I find myself saying, “I don’t want to do that.” I send an email and say, “Shouldn’t have sent that. I was too pissed on that one,” or feeling nervous about an upcoming meeting. I’ll speak for myself. In all of these things, my knee–jerk reaction is to say, “All of that’s normal. I have to power through it.”
That’s absolutely how most of us live. We feel the fear and do it anyway. It’s a great title for a book and taking action even when you’re fearful is often necessary but there’s something much easier and much more effective than that. If you’re fearful and you’re acting anyway, you’re acting over the fear. You have all these chemicals in your body that are causing you to contract, not think clearly, you’re not functioning at your peak effectiveness and it also crowds your judgment. If you’re in fear, by nature of that energy, it shuts down our ability to see clearly what’s going on in that moment. The same thing is true with anger. When we’re angry at someone, we only think we’re right, they’re wrong and they need to change.
Sometimes that isn’t even the case or we’re reacting to something that they didn’t even do. We just think they did it or we’ve misinterpreted a communication. Most people think that’s normal and it is what’s average for most people. It’s what most people experience. In my experience, what’s natural. I guess you can distinguish between what’s natural and what’s normal. What’s normal is a struggle. What’s normal is suffering. What’s normal, even if you’re very successful, is there’s a lot of wear and tear getting through the day. There are a lot of small disappointments even if they’re big wins over time. What’s natural is as you let go, you can adjust nimbly to whatever is the appropriate action at this moment, stop reacting and you start acting. You stop overthinking and you go with your clear reason and intuitive knowingness.The more you let go, the broader your perspective gets. Click To Tweet
You act from that as opposed to what you think you should do, you must do, you’ve done in the past. Especially now but in general in business, businesses only thrive when they effectively adapt. If they’re responding to what worked many years ago, it’s highly unlikely for them to succeed in the present world. If you think about it, many years ago so much was different. I remember transitioning from using direct mail to email as a way of marketing. I was an early adopter. At first, I was getting 1%, 2% or 3% on email response rate, which was part of it. I was doing the same on direct mail before I transitioned.
I didn’t want to spend all the money. I realized the cutting edge was email so I jumped into that. Now, 1/10 of 1% is a huge response on email but that’s a whole other story. If I was still doing direct mail, radio or TV advertising, I would have gone out of business. A lot of us don’t realize that we’re responding to what was as opposed to what is and it’s never constructive in any part of your life, your relationships, your health, your wellbeing, all of it. Responding to what was is not very effective. You get immediate feedback in business. If you’re responding to conditions that aren’t in this moment then your chances go down exponentially, the more you’re doing that in succeeding. When you clear your mind by letting go then you can have a clear opening to see.
I read this article about a different way of doing this. I read something in Barrons and it said, “There’s this whole new trend now. Do I want to wait until that trend is over? Do I want to explore if I can capitalize on it?” Now, if you’re hesitant, if you’re feeling stressed, you’re feeling anxious or you’re feeling doubt, you might go, “What I’m doing is working. I don’t want to rock the boat,“ or, “I don’t know how I would make the transition.” There are many rational considerations the mind comes up with that prevent us from moving forward but every time you let go of the contraction we feel when we’re insecure, angry, don’t know what to do or feeling stressful then we immediately see more possibilities. We immediately are in action as opposed to thinking about it or trying.
We’re in action, not experiencing inaction. It seems to me that our current environment where it’s experiencing the increasing normalization of anger, judgment and polarization. We’re seeing that to a greater degree than we ever have before as each day goes by, that seems more and more normal.
It’s not natural and it’s not healthy both for us as a society and as individuals. If we think we have the only right perspective or our point of view is the only point of view, we’re definitely going to get into trouble. What happens when you let go is you look. You see it from a broader perspective. The more you let go, the broader your perspective gets. Would you rather be surveying the landscape of your business environment from ground level or from mountain top level? Which would you think would be a more effective way of viewing your business environment? Would you like to go all the way out to satellite level? You can do that when you let go. When you let go, you start to see, “I can see that trend is coming,” and you go, “Let’s work backward. If that trend is coming, I can see it. I have a sense of when that’s going to be here. What can I do to prepare for that?”
It’s about our knee-jerk reaction, maybe conditioned reaction, are we see, for example, a trend or some opportunity emerging. Even though we would like to think that we can rationally sort things out and look at them on the complete pros and cons of intellectual analysis, we have an emotional reaction to it on some level. It either scares us or it excites us. If I get excited about a trend and I get hooked on that excitement, that can lead me down a wrong path as much as being scared of it.
I know you’ve heard this expression on Wall Street. “The bears and the bulls make money, the pigs get slaughtered.“ When we get into lust, when we get so excited that we lose discernment that about our timing or whether our excitement may or may not be warranted. When you can let go of the lust and stay focused on what is real then you take real actions that produce real results as opposed to wishful thinking. Even the best businesses are partially based on wishful thinking. Wishful thinking often doesn’t come out the way we wish it would but you can certainly plan for several potential outcomes and be prepared for it. If you aren’t looking at the big picture and you’re reacting then it’s much more hit and miss.
Would I prefer to be this or let it go? The question that we don’t often ask ourselves, that to me, is getting at the essence of what the Sedona Method is. It’s giving ourselves that choice.
That’s a core essence of the basics of The Sedona Method that at this moment, we have the choice to continue to be run by what was, what might be or we can deal with what is. We have the choice to look back or look forward as opposed to looking at what’s actual. We have the choice to let go of whatever internal burden we’re carrying around from our past failures, our disappointments, our lack of confidence, from the stress of the environment. You mentioned all the tension in the environment. That tension affects everything but you can opt–out of that inwardly. You can still have your own point of view and respond knowing where people are at but if you’re reacting to everyone else’s reactions then you get swept up in the craziness.
Not only reacting to their reactions but reacting to what you anticipate their reactions would be even though they haven’t reacted that way. You start making stuff up based on judgments.
We don’t realize how much we’re doing that. Most of what we experienced is made up.
Do I need to believe that I have that choice in order to make this work? There are going to be some people that are reading this and say, “I hear what you’re saying but I don’t have that choice. I get completely locked up in this and it is what it is.“
Have you ever not been able to do something but once you learned a new skill, you were able to?
That’s the whole idea of learning a new skill.
This is even easier than because we come in with already being able to do this. Young children do this naturally. If you’ve ever been around young children, you’ve probably seen a young child fall down and look around to see if they need to be upset. They don’t think that way but they do that. If they catch someone’s eye, they generate an upset immediately. As soon as they get the kiss they were looking for stubbing their toe, they’re fine. It’s like nothing ever happened. Children, they don’t cling to things as we do as an adult, yet children are doing this unconsciously. It’s natural for them. We as adults train it out of them not intentionally. We don’t realize we’re doing it. We’re training them to be the way we think everything is. There’s no maliciousness in it.
What’s an example of how we train that out of kids?
One of the ways we do that is by example. When mom and dad don’t let go, the child goes, “That must be safer. I want to keep getting fed, clothed and have a roof over my head. Maybe I need to model after mom and dad. They are angry at each other a lot and they don’t seem to let go of it but it seems to be working for them. I think I’ll choose sides. I’ll be for dad or I’ll be for mom and we’ll fight dad together or mom together.” It’s things like that. Most of that is going on unconsciously but in order to be safe, we often model out of around the dysfunction in our environment. Young children are very good at modeling because that’s all they know. They’re modeling after us. That’s one of the main ways they do it.
I don’t need to believe that I have that choice in order to make that choice but I do need to see the promise in it enough to give it a try.
You need to be open to it. In our programs, we encourage people to not believe a word we say but to be open to it, take it for checking, see if it works for you. If it doesn’t, don’t do it. If it does, do it some more and then see where it leads you. You’ll find from your own direct experience that when you let go, things work out better. You feel better. Things are easier. That’s usually enough motivation. I know many of your audiences are business–focused. Business people are pretty adaptable when it comes to that. They‘re like, “This is something that works. I’m going to keep doing it.” We don’t go, “This works but now I’m going to stop doing it. I’m tired of doing what works. I’m going to see if I can find something that doesn’t work. This is working too well. I’m making too much money from this. Let’s stop doing this.“ Not too many people wake up and go through that they’re like, “This day is going too smoothly. There are too many yeses coming in on deals I’ve been trying to put together and people are accepting offers or they’re making offers. That’s terrible. I don’t want to have more of that.”
We’re cutting up on it but there is an element of truth to that. Things are going so well, something must be wrong. I think that is a fairly common thing.
That’s a very common belief. We feel uncomfortable when things are smooth. “I’m pushing the rock up a hill even though I know that’s not working. We stop efforting. I can say I worked hard. I tried hard to get something done and it’s not my fault it didn’t work.“
“I did what I was supposed to do.“ It’s like we were talking about this earlier. We conflate or confuse that pushing the rock up the mountain sort of effort with success. Nothing beats the feeling of being at the top of the mountain and letting the boulder go down the other side versus pushing it up.If businesses are responding to what worked 20 years ago, it’s highly unlikely for them to succeed in the present world.

Except often, the solution is not in the direction we’re trying to push the rock in. Otherwise, the rock would be naturally flowing in that direction. It’s like swimming against the current. There are currents in business. There are currents in life too but there are currents in business that things are flowing in a particular way. It’s much more effective to notice the current and go with the current as opposed to trying to swim against the current. When you try to swim against the current, often it doesn’t work out that well. Also, Einstein said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing that isn’t working and expecting a different result.”
We do the same thing to Einstein that we do to Yoda. In a little bit, I’d love you to give us a taste of The Sedona Method. Before you do that, can you talk a little bit about the history because this isn’t something that you develop from the ground up.
I was very fortunate I met Lester Levenson, the man that we’ve mentioned in passing when I was very young and impressed with him. Part of it was his story. He was a businessman, entrepreneur, successful but he was a physical and emotional basket case. He was sent home to die from a second coronary. He had ulcers. He had diverticulitis. He had jaundice several times a year. He had migraine headaches and he had gone to therapy with an associate of Freud who, after a certain amount of time tried to help him and said, “Lester, sorry. Some people can’t be helped.“
He was an emotional and physical mess but when the doctor sent him home to die to his Central Park, south penthouse, he said, “Lester, for a smart boy, you are stupid.” He studied Psychology, Business, Engineering and Physics. None of that seemed to give him what he wanted. We went back to the web within himself and he started to study how the body–mind worked. He discovered that what was clogging the works was his unresolved thoughts and feelings from the past and that he could let those go. As he did that, he entered a state of profound peace that he lived another 42 years after the doctors gave him a week to live and his body completely healed.
He didn’t have illness again until the very end of his life. The illness started again 40 years later. Instead of weeks, he ended up with an extra 40 years. When I met Lester, I was very moved by who he was and how he was as a person. I decided to get involved. Before I was even done with the program, I intuitively knew that this is my life’s work. I was only 22. I’m now 66 but doing it for a while. Later on, Lester turned his copyrights over to me in the early ‘90s. He asked me to continue the work a few years before he passed away. I’ve been doing the work ever since and it’s been evolving in very powerful ways and it’s helped a lot of people. It’s based on a solid history. It’s also based on the experience of hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, doing it effectively including many successful entrepreneurs.
It is very simple but yet you have a lot of different programs and experiences like retreats, audios and all kinds of ways for people to get access to it. I know that because you lived in my ears for several years as I was learning this through your audio programs. Although it is easy to learn, it’s like anything else. It takes practice.
Like anything in life, if you expect your muscles to get stronger without doing anything with them, it’s not going to happen. Practice and direct experience help build any skill that you’re trying to build. The reason for the numerous programs is we have programs focusing on goals, love and relationships, a host of different topics of how to apply the same set of tools to those specific circumstances. There are people who do The Sedona Method not so much to be more effective in life but to transcend the limited contracted state that most of us live in and to live from a happier, more open, alive state. There are programs for that too and they all employ the same set of tools but it’s on different topics.
Could you give us a little taste of that?
I warn you in advance, what we’re about to do, this process is incredibly simple and it’s the very beginnings of The Sedona Method. Part of the reason it’s as powerful as it is, is because it’s simple. Young children don’t even need to do what we have to do. As adults, we need a process. Let me first describe what I mean by letting go. It’s clear to all of us. Pick up a pen, pencil or any object that you’d be willing to drop to your desk, to the floor. For the sake of this analogy, this object represents your limiting thoughts, feelings, beliefs, ideas, emotions and your hand represents your gut or your awareness.
Grip the object tightly with your hand. If we did this long enough, it would start to feel uncomfortable but also familiar but that’s enough. Open your hand and roll the object around in your hand. Is this object attached to your hand? Obviously not but if you think about how we respond, we talked about you might not realize you have a choice. This is where it comes in. It’s even in our language. When we feel angry, we don’t say, “I feel angry.” Usually, you say, “I’m angry.” I am the anger. We don’t even realize we’re doing it. If we feel sad, we don’t say, “I feel sad.” We say, “I’m sad.” We identify with it so we forget that there isn’t attached to us but every emotion and thought feeling a limiting belief is attached to you as this object is attached to your hand. Turn your hand upside down. Could you let go of the object?
That’s what we mean by letting go. That’s a choice. We always have a choice no matter how justified an emotion is, no matter how long you’ve had it, no matter why you think you need to hold onto it. It is a choice to let it go and you can always choose it if you want to. If you don’t want to, that’s fine. You can choose to hold on too. We often do that and that’s fine. There’s a simple process that I’ll explain first then I’ll take us through an experience. If you’re stressed about a decision, if you’re angry at a coworker or a peer, your boss, yourself. If you have a goal that you’re wanting to achieve but you’re feeling internally limited about achieving the goal. If you’re feeling anxious, sad, lonely, depressed, you start with that. What you do is you notice how you’re feeling and you‘re allowed to be there. You welcome it as best you can. Be present with it. We then use these questions. The first question is could you let it go? if you were able to drop that pen then I know you can. Even if you imagine dropping a pen or whatever the object was, I know you can. You’ve dropped things before.
The next question is would you. Would you means you are willing to. If you’re ever not sure, ask yourself, “Would I rather hold on to this pain, the suffering, this limitation? Would I rather be free and have my goals?” Usually, the choice is easy. The last question is when and when is an invitation that decides to do it now. You may find you let go a little. Could you let it go? You may find you let go a little. Would you? You may find you let go most on when or it may be a combination there. It doesn’t matter. The only thing I recommend you do for this is you stay open to it, with as little inner debate as possible. Stick with yes or no. You may find yourself saying no during this process and a release will happen anyway because you were being honest. Often, honesty produces a release as part of this. Let’s do this now. I’m going to do it with everyone. Steve, you don’t need to say anything. You can do the process with everybody else.
At this moment, allow yourself to think of something in your life that you’re either wanting to change or improve. It doesn’t matter what it is and then allows yourself to notice how you feel about it as best you can. Could you allow that and be present with it? Notice it. At this moment, as best you can, could you let it go? Could you? Would you? When? If you were not overthinking it, you probably already noticed something started to shift but remember we have a lifetime of practice of holding on. To get in touch again with that natural ability, might take a little more practice. Let’s do it 1 or 2 more times. Focus on the same thing or anything else in your life that you’re wanting to change or improve.
Could you allow however you feel, notice it, be present with it? As best you can for now, could you let it go? Could you? Would you? When? Let’s do that one more time. You may have noticed a shift again but let’s go further. At this moment, focus on that same thing or anything else that you’re wanting to change or improve and be present with the feeling as best you can. As best you can for now, could you let it go? Could you? Would you? When? This is the basic first step but if you were doing this on your own, you would keep asking those same questions until you got the relief that you wanted and be open to the possibility that it can be this direct and simple. It’s the only reason it isn’t now, as you haven’t done it before, at least not in this way. Experiment with it, see where it leads you.
In a practical application of that throughout the course of the day so let’s say I’m at my computer. I get an email that’s something with a message I didn’t want to hear. You can generically but we’ve all had that thing. I feel an emotional response. Are you saying that if I’m aware enough in that moment and noticing how I’m responding to it, that I can stop for a minute and take myself through that process?
Yes, and then you’ll probably respond more appropriately or you’ll forward the email to somebody else and tell them how to respond appropriately. Say you’re working on a project and you’re brainstorming about how to put all the pieces together. You’re feeling frustrated because you’re not able to see clearly what’s the next step. You can use it right then or say you’re about to get on the phone to make a call that you’re dreading, you could use it then. Say you had a call that didn’t go the way you want it to do. You can use it then.
What about right in the middle of the call?
Absolutely. As you get good at this, you get to the point where you can let go without needing to use the questions because you’ve experienced the letting go experience enough, you can go right to it. You can let go right in the middle of a business meeting, right in the middle of a call, right in the middle of about to open your mouth and insert your foot if not your leg. You can catch yourself, let go and notice an immediate difference.
If I’m in the middle of a contentious face-to-face meeting, you and I are having a spirited debate and it’s pissing me off. I’m not going to go like, “Hold on.” Can I allow myself to feel this, “I’m not done yet.“ It comes internalized.
It comes internalized. Letting go, you’re simply opening inside to what’s causing you to contract. You can learn how to do that like you know how to open your hand. You just open your hand. On some level, most of us have a fist in here in our gut and it’s crunched shut. It feels that way often but once you realize that you have some control over opening that fist and allowing that energy to flow naturally, as you get a sense of that, you can say, “That my fist is getting tighter.” You don’t even need to think about it. You can feel that fist getting tighter and then you do this inside, just the acknowledgment of it.A lot of us don’t realize that we’re responding to what was as opposed to what is. Click To Tweet
I’m asking these questions for the benefit of our readers who are reading this for the first time. In my experience in using The Sedona Method, what I find myself doing and not as frequently as I would like, I find myself right in the middle of the heat of things asking myself. I’m noticing that the feeling is there asking myself, “Can I let that go?“ That’s all it takes. It’s not even articulated on that level. I’m verbalizing it but I can feel that process going on inside of me it gets easier and more internalized over time. This is terrific insight and practice. It’s refreshing. There are a lot of approaches, techniques, tools, etc. with lots of those big promises that we talked about in the beginning. Some of them seem either inaccessible or too abstract to make use of. What I love about this approach is that it’s very concrete, easy to practice. In my experience, it makes a huge difference.
For people to get more information on what you’re doing, we have a page set up at Sedona.com/SteveFarber. There are lots of ways to engage and some great resources on there for you to avail yourself of. Hale, it’s been a real pleasure. Thank you so much for taking the time with us. For all you readers, thank you for being here. We’ll see you next time. In the meantime, remember to do what you love in the service of people who love what you do and then let it go.
Thanks for having me. It’s been fun.
