My personal experience with the Sedona method is a little limited because I just started doing it in September of 2010, so as of this writing, I’ve had about 1 1/2 months of experience using it.  What I’ve experienced so far is pretty amazing all things considered.

My current main source of income is doing tech support by phone. I’m sure you’ve heard all the horror stories from both sides, so I’m not gong to give examples here.  I’ve been doing this for over 10 years with several different companies.  Suffice it to say, stress is a major job hazard.  Before I started doing the Sedona method, I would always be grinding and gritting my teeth, both at work and at home.  I’ve woken up and had my jaw clenched, so stress and frustration was a constant companion.  I would also become testy with customers a lot faster than I should, and my family felt like they had to walk on egg shells a lot of the time.

Since starting the program, I’ve noticed the following things:

  • I don’t clench my jaw, grind my teeth very much any more.  When I catch myself doing it, I just release and I’m good.
  • Callers that would have had me raising my voice, or even yelling, now just cause minor irritation.  I still get stressed out by some of them, but then again, I’m a work in progress.  I’ve got over 10 years of stress to decompress.
  • I’m falling asleep faster and easier.
  • I feel like I’m getting closer to my wife since I don’t feel the need to keep her at arms length when I first get home.
  • Strangely enough, I used to play a lot of video games, usually an hour or two a night, for years.  When I couldn’t play, I’d get upset or easily irritated.  Since I started, I’ve probably played about 20 hours over the space of 1 1/2 months, when before I was doing at least that much a week.  I know I was using the video games to decompress from the work day, but now I don’t feel the urge.  I’m going days at a stretch without playing anything.

There’s probably more changes that I haven’t noticed yet, but as I do, I’ll add it here.  Suffice it to say, if you have a stressful job or life, even if you don’t plan on pursuing the Law of Attraction, I’d highly recommend this book/program.  You’ll enjoy life a lot more.  Wish I had taken it seriously when I first got it almost a decade ago (2003) but never got past the second chapter.  I’m guessing I wasn’t ready in my personal development at that point.

What’s ironic is that after I started studying the Law of Attraction, and more specifically. The Missing Secret from Joe Vitale, I remembered some of what this book talked about and thought “Hmm, they’re saying one of the things that holds you back is negative emotion, maybe this book can help me with this issue”.  Then I started hearing the newer stuff from several of the teachers from The Secret talking about all the benefits they were receiving from using this method.  Can’t think this is coincidence that I start delving into the Law of Attraction and find out that one of the main books they refer to I originally purchased 7 years ago.

One of the biggest complaints that I can say about the book is that it has, in my opinion, a lot of needless repetition.  When your main procedure is:

  1. What am I feeling right now?
  2. Can I welcome that feeling?
  3. Can I let this feeling go?
  4. Would I let this feeling go?
  5. When?

It’s hard not to have a bunch of filler material, which is what this book suffers from.  I personally like to have several examples of how to use information in different situations, so I’m not faulting them for this, but I think they could have cut the length of the book by a least 1/4.  The only reason I can say for having the format and content the way it’s laid out is that you can flip anywhere in the book and get a basic understanding of the program, and maybe a little specialized tidbit on how to use it for certain situations.

All in all, I’m getting a lot out of this book, but like anything else that deals with self-improvement/self-help/self-development, your mileage may vary depending on where you’re starting from and where you’re headed, but I feel this book deserves a look no matter who you are.  At worst, you have another tool that just sits on a shelf getting dusty (My first attempt at reading it), and at best it can change your life (like it’s doing for me now).
