1Peer-to-Peer After-Releasing Clean-UpProcedureResultTo eliminate the feelings and “wants” that are re-activated while assisting others with TheSedona Method. To let go of all identification to any reaction or to being the helper.LogicWhen assisting others with releasing, it is essential to let go of whatever gets stirred up fromyour sessions. You have probably noticed that when you try to help anyone there is anunconscious and sometimes conscious backlash from the individual that you are helping. Thisprocess was designed to show you how to eliminate the reactions to your partners and anyother feelings they bring up in you. It is also designed to help you move beyond any identitywith helping or being helped. As you work with these questions, in addition to supporting youin your releasing sessions, you will see that they help you improve your relationships,communicate more effectively, resolve conflicts, and incorporate letting go more easily intoyour life. They also greatly improve your effectiveness and contribute to the integrity of allinteractions.Directly after each releasing session—or, if you are pressed for time, at the end of each day—use the following procedure.There are four groups of questions, each focusing on a separate want: Control, Approval,Security/Survival, and Separation.How to work with these questions:1. Focus on (visualize) the face of the person you choose to release about.2. Ask yourself one question at a time, allowing your wants to surface. You may oftennotice that simply asking yourself the question will cause you to spontaneously let go ofthe want you are focusing on at the moment. Then allow yourself to either welcome thewant fully, let it go, or discover that there is no one to want anything.3. The third question in each set is designed to help you determine if you are fullyreleased on the want about the person you chose. Keep asking yourself the first twoquestions in each set and release whatever is stirred up until you can honestly answer“yes” to the third question. 2009-2016 Sedona Training Associates

24. Start with the set of questions on Control and stay with that set until “You grant thatperson the right to be the way they are,” or there is only a feeling of acceptance orallowing for the person. This often is simply a decision to let go completely or arecognition that there is nothing to let go of and no one to let go. It is possible to get tothis point very quickly if you are open to it.5. Do the same thing with each set of questions in order. You'll know when you are fullyreleased on the person when you can see their face and have only acceptance/love forthem.Listed below are instructions for the regular Clean-up Procedure, followed by a version usingThe 5th Way.Clean-up QuestionsThe questions in regular type are the standard clean-up questions.
