This old Greek philosopher had it right. Everything we see, hear, touch, smell is in constant state of flux. Our bodies change over time. Our cells are constantly dividing, regenerating, dying in all kinds of different life cycles. Our relationships with everything are changing. Even our core beliefs change over time. What we thought was real at one point turns out to be complete fallacy in another. What we once thought was impossible becomes suddenly completely possible and easy.
So why does it sometimes feel nothing really changes and that we are forever stuck? Why does it feel like there are these huge blocks that prevent us from experiencing the transformation of our lives to a new level of success, abundance and well-being?
You heard our teachers say it all the time. There are only three things in life that ultimately stop us. These three things are (subconscious) fear, resistance and wanting. Let go of those three things and you will experience transformation. That’s it.
Why is it then that we don’t let go of these three things?
Again, the answer is simple. It is because we don’t like to experience those types of feelings, even if it was just for a split second. We don’t like to feel the negativity and we would rather not deal with it. We run and hide from it. We would rather be entertained than using our time to focus on all the bad stuff that we carry with us.
It happens all the time. Especially if you are releasing only on your own.
We need to wake up. Nobody can transform our lives expect ourselves. The change needs to start within us. We must want imperturbability more than we want to breathe. More than we want anything in life. Only when this step is in place is the transformation possible.
Once we have this step firmly in place, then and only then we can make a new decision. We can decide to release all feelings so that we can ultimately be and feel imperturbable.
Every single one of us who took classes or went to retreats has experienced the power of the group of releasers. Lester said the power of releasing increases exponentially with the number of people releasing. With the support of the group we can all release tons and tons of our collected garbage. And it will be much quicker and deeper.
We can be the change we want to see in the world. We can decide that nothing is stopping us from transforming our lives to a whole new level.
Nothing can stop us from claiming our birthright. Love, happiness, joy, abundance. It is all there for us, simply being hidden from our view with all this negativity.
And we know and we have experienced that negativity can be released. The way is simple. Your life transformation is only a release away.
How about reminding yourself on the power of the group?
Or if you are new to Releasing, how about experiencing this life changing transformational technique for yourself?
What is the most important investment of your life? The one that will guarantee you a return you never thought was possible.
At the same time this investment will be safer than putting your money in the bank. Or keeping it home in a safe or under the mattress.
Nothing will be able to touch your investment and no matter what the outside circumstances are (or get to be), your return will only continue to grow year after year.
The only one who will ultimately decide what the return on investment gets to be is you.
Can you guess what the investment is?
It is the one we decide to make in ourselves.
But what does that really mean, to invest in ourselves?
Now, I am not talking about acquiring things in life like a new house, nice piece of jewelry or getting your hands on that brand-new luxury car.
You see, when I am talking about investing, I am really talking about learning how to fish, instead of simply having to buy the fish at the local market. And not only that, it is also always having a good friend to go fishing with you.
Investing in yourself means doing what needs to be done to get the tools that ultimately allow you to get whatever is that you decide to go for. Learning these tools help you achieve all your goals and teach you how to live a happier and more abundant life. It is like having an extremely powerful ally on your side.
Nowadays, there is so much information out there that the sheer amount of it gets us frozen and stuck. Not to mention the quality or truthfulness of it. Most of the time, browsing through layers upon layers of information while trying to figure it all out leaves you more lost than you were when you started the search. These tools help you cut through the noise. You will not need to search anymore.
The way is simple!
I don’t need information to lead a happier life. What I really need are the right answers.
I need answers that will lead me towards making the best decision for me, every single time in every area of my life.
If you are like me, you get your answers through releasing and you know what I am talking about. If you are not familiar with it, it’s time to jump in and start benefiting yourself.
Just think about it. What if you too could have an ally that always points you towards the right answer? Someone who would be there for you every step of the way. Your personal, always available and completely dedicated friend.
And what if the only thing that this friend requires from you is to learn a certain way of communication. It is a specific way that consists of only six crucial steps. These steps for majority of people remain unknown, but nevertheless can be quickly taught and above all – easily experienced.
You can prove it to yourself in a matter of seconds.
Release Technique is the best way of communicating with this mentor. It is the easiest and most rewarding investment opportunity. And the only one you will ever need.
Why’d I do that? That was so dumb of me! There I go again, always ruining opportunities. What’s wrong with me?
These are the kinds of thoughts that bombard your mind daily. The voices in your head that follow you like a dark cloud, filling you with guilt, regret, and self-pity.
It’s no wonder you’re stressed.
Your mind tries to compensate for all this negative self-talk by giving you goals: I’ll always be on time. I’ll come to work prepared. I’ll exercise five days a week.
Then the instant you fall off track, you’re back to beating yourself up again.
“Why can’t I change?” you ask yourself. It seems like you’re always repeating the same bad habits, no matter how hard you try to get rid of them. You long for one of those makeovers like you see on TV, only this wouldn’t just be a weight-loss or wardrobe makeover. It would be a totally NEW YOU.
But the distance between yourself and the NEW YOU seems insurmountable.
It’s not just you who can’t change. You notice it in others as well. We all know people who keep getting involved in relationships that crash and burn, can’t keep a job, can’t hang onto their money.
It seems like as humans, we’re hardwired to resist change.
But is that really true?
Think back to when you were a child. Your life was an infinite horizon of possibilities. It seemed like every year you were transforming into someone new, taking on new roles. Not only did you become a new person outwardly, but inwardly you were adopting new worldviews and perceptions of yourself.
Unfortunately, the more life we experience, the more our perception of ourselves becomes fixed. That’s because habits start to take root and we lose sight of the infinite beingness that we so intuitively grasped as children.
If someone keeps telling you you’re a loser, eventually you’ll start to believe it.
In the same way, if you keep making the same poor choices—forgetting things, letting others take advantage of you, not following through on commitments—eventually you’ll equate these choices with your identity. Others will label you as “forgetful,” “a doormat,” or “unreliable,” further cementing your “identity.”
So it follows that if you want to break out of this cycle—the cycle of making bad decisions and beating yourself up about it—you’ll need to do something new.
Can you do something new?
I’m assuming you said yes.
First, you need to get rid of all the subconscious baggage that’s been weighing you down, preventing you from reaching higher plains of consciousness.
Think of all the things you’d like to change about yourself. Or, if you prefer to focus on specifics, think of the last time that you really disappointed yourself. Maybe it was today.
What kinds of feelings does it stir up? Guilt? Regret? Anger?
Don’t try to fight or suppress the feeling. Instead, invite it up. Say YES to it.
Now ask yourself: Would I let this feeling go?
Another way of saying it is, “Do I enjoy being angry at myself? Has it helped me to drop my bad habits? Has it helped me to change at all?”
It hasn’t, had it? Otherwise you’d already be doing it. In fact, all this thinking does is lock those negative perceptions into place. Each type you berate yourself, you’re setting that pattern in your mind.
Next ask yourself: Could I let this feeling go?
Maybe it feels like too much. That’s okay. Just let a little bit go.
That wasn’t so hard, was it?
Now let a little bit more go.
And a little bit more.
Now could you give yourself a little bit of approval? Not for any particular reason. Approval never hurt anyone.
And a little bit more?
And a little bit more?
How do you feel now? Lighter? More like change is possible?
When you get rid of all this negative baggage, what you’re doing is giving yourself a clean slate. A chance to start fresh. The best part is, you can wipe the slate clean and reinvent yourself any time you want!
You just have to decide that you’re ready to abandon the old patterns and limited beliefs…and give yourself permission to become the NEW YOU.
Would you like to accelerate this transformation and gain a set of tools to create a massive shift in your perspective of yourself?
Then join us at the Master Your Life Weekend from December 8-10 in Philadelphia. Bring a friend who has not attended a Live Class and you can go for FREE!
When you take charge of your mind and embrace the NEW YOU, anything is possible.
March marks the 20th anniversary of helping people to create their ideal life using Lester Levenson’s techniques.
After 20 years, we have taught the Release Technique to over 160,0000 people in more than 50 countries. We’ve offered live classes in Spain, Singapore, the USA, Australia, Germany, Holland, and England.
It all started with Lester Levenson, at age 42, suffering his second massive heart attack. After the doctors essentially sent him home to die, Lester decided it was up to him to fix himself. For weeks, months, and throughout his years, he focused on getting rid of all his non-loving feelings.
Not only did Lester restore his health and add decades to his life, but he learned how to reach a place of unconditional bliss and imperturbability.
He did not horde his newfound secrets but shared them freely and openly.
Larry Crane met Lester in 1976 when he was at a similar crossroads, feeling extremely unhappy and dissatisfied with his life despite achieving great financial success.
Lester taught Larry how to be 100% loving and to obtain a pure happiness that was not dependent on wealth or any other external factors.
Shortly before Lester’s passing in 1994, Larry promised to continue Lester’s work and get it out to the masses.
That’s how the Release Technique was born.
Known as the “coach to the coaches,” Larry has been featured on the Today Show and taught executives, athletes, and CEOs.
Whether you’re looking to recover from a negative experience or you simply want to become more present, this retreat will leave you recharged, ready to live life with vitality and purpose.
The tranquil beauty of Sedona—home to Lester’s original retreat—provides the ideal backdrop for connecting with your True Being.
As attendee Joy Billings says, “I am filled with gratitude and thankfulness to have found Releasing. More than anything I have ever done it has opened the possibilities of living in Beingness, pure joy and peace. This retreat I clearly see how my programs have been operating to create the dis-eased body. I clearly know I have used the dis-eased body to hide as an excuse to not do what I don’t want to do. I continue to release on these health issues and am feeling like I can have perfect health – I no longer need to ravish my body to justify anything – BRAVO!!”
Friends and teachers will join in the celebration. These include Donna Fedor, a dynamic speaker who will teach you how to “think like a champion,” Rick Dillard, a lifelong musician who will help you to overcome your limitations, Hal Goldstein, a living testament to the method’s ability to increase harmony within a company, Jeff Delone, who will help you grasp the real-world applications of his teachings, and Stephan Szugat, a 15-year financial leader and strategic planner who has effectively put these techniques into practice again and again.
As children, we had big dreams. When someone asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up, we would say: an astronaut. A movie star. A professional athlete.
The sky was the limit.
But as we got older, things changed. Maybe a parent or teacher told us we had to be practical and find a “real” way to make a living. Or maybe our own disappointments and failures caused us to narrow our horizons and accept this notion that we must settle for less when it comes to reaching our goals.
Either way, it’s time to change this limited thinking.
Picture your dream career. Go big here. Don’t worry if it seems impractical, silly, or even impossible. After all, these are just stories in your mind. Also, make sure it’s something you want—not something you feel pressured to do to gain approval from others.
Now, on a piece of paper, write down all the reasons you can’t have it: the economy, too much competition, you don’t have the right connections, you’re not talented enough, etc.
As you reflect on these reasons, you need to view them for what they really are: excuses.
Right now, you might be protesting: “But it’s not my fault! These are things that I have no control over!”
But notice what’s taking place here. When you categorize the items in this list as things which you have “no control over,” you’re giving up your power to the external world. Therefore, by allowing yourself to become a victim of circumstance, you’re creating this situation of lack.
This is not to say that you should punish yourself. After all, many of these beliefs operate on a subconscious level.
What you should do, though, is accept responsibility for whatever reasons are holding you back from accomplishing your dreams.
Accepting responsibility is an important first step in turning the tide. You see, once you discover that you created all the things you don’t want in your life, you’ll discover that you can also create all the things that you do want.
By doing this exercise, you may also discover that you’ve been harboring some resistance to achieving your goal. Maybe you resist dreaming big because you’re afraid you’ll be disappointed if you come up short. Or maybe you feel that you’re not prepared to handle a big change in your life.
Fear of disappointment and fear of change are what keep many of us from seeking out bigger and better things for ourselves. We remain chained to the familiar, settling for mediocrity because it feels comfortable.
Once you discover the ways in which you’ve been sabotaging your success, you’ll be able to turn off the autopilot and take control of your destiny.
Many motivational programs miss this important first step. They talk about goal-setting and positive affirmations, which are all well and good, but you can’t drive down the road to success before you clear away all the subconscious debris that’s blocking your path.
Next, it’s time to write down your goal statement. Write it in the present tense and in such a way that facilitates your letting go. Your goal should be specific yet concise.
Here’s another thing. Releasing your blockages and bringing your goals to fruition is like developing a muscle. It’s not exactly “difficult” in the way we normally think of the word, but it does take time and patience. When you’re training for a marathon, you don’t run the full 26 miles on the first day, right?
The same goes for goal setting. If you dream of becoming the CEO of a Fortune 500 company but you’ve never held a management position, you’ll have a hard time wrapping your head around this goal. This is not to say that you can’t achieve this goal—you’ll simply have difficulty overcoming all the internal doubts standing in your way.
So start with a goal that feels satisfying yet realistic and achievable.
An example would be, “I allow myself to have and enjoy the best job for me at this time in my life.”
Once you’ve achieved this goal and discovered the power within you, you can start aiming for bigger and bigger goals.
As Lester Levenson once said, the same rules apply whether you’re manifesting a penny or a billion dollars.
The only difference is your confidence in your abilities to stop creating the things that cause you despair and to start creating the things that bring you joy and abundance.
If you’d like to exponentially increase the rate at which you achieve your goals, the best way is to surround yourself with like-minded people who are also committed to realizing their biggest, boldest dreams. That’s why you should join us at the 7-Day Success and Life Balance Retreat from Dec. 26-January 1.
Become the MASTER of your life and watch all your wildest dreams unfold before your eyes.
