I bought my first Release Technique product, the Abundance Course, back in 2005. After plowing through it in just a few days, I figured I was good to go. Wrong!

So, as my life rolled by, I would pull it out and listen to the CD’s whenever I felt things were not going as I would have liked – meaning going downhill fast. Once in a while I even called Larry for some help, and of course he would ask me if I was coming to a live weekend class. My excuse was always the same; I couldn’t afford the money or the time, or both.

I continued to purchase courses – Goals and Resistance, What Do You Want To Do When You Grow Up, The Butt System – but I was doing the work by myself. I could feel the changes in how I dealt with stress, and could tell I was happier more of the time.

But, I was not seeing any of the major goals like the ones I was reading about in the Release Newsletter. People were seeing huge financial and professional gains. I wasn’t, and I couldn’t figure out why.

I began to think about attending a live weekend class. I never figured I could afford a retreat, nor did I think I “needed” an entire week to get it. I was certain I just needed a little tweaking here and there, and I would begin to see the results I had read about (and that the courses promised.) But the voice in my head always came up with things for me that were “more important” than going to a releasing event.

Finally, this past November I took the plunge and signed up for the Lesterizing Goals retreat in Vail. All of my excuses were gone – my kids were all on their own and I had lost my husband to pancreatic cancer in March. I still had a lot of resistance that I had to release on, but I finally just made a decision to do it.

You know that old saying, “If I knew then what I know now . . .”? What a world of difference the group dynamic meant. There was such a sharing of love, experience, gains and struggles. I was amazed at how it multiplied the affect of what I was doing.

My releasing abilities and the depth of my releasing skyrocketed by being constantly surrounded by people who were releasing and so very willing to share it. I have since attended the Camp Allen Retreat and a weekend Abundance Course. Each time I come home light years ahead of where I was, trying to “figure it out” on my own.
