Releasing Statements are an improved version of affirmations. Instead of trying to create something new from scratch (in the case of affirmations), we find and release the source of stress within the mind directly.
There are four main categories of statements:
Allow: These assist the releasing statements in reducing inhibitions or supporting releasing statements.
Example: I allow myself to experience this fear. / I allow myself to release this fear.
Release: These provide the main releasing effect.
Example: I release this fear. / I let go of this fear.
Affirm: These seal in the effects of the releasing statements.
Example: And I forgive myself. / And I heal now. / And I allow myself to be who I really am.
Consolidate: This helps mark the end of a cycle of releasing.
Example: And so be it. / And so it is. / Amen.
One approach to Inner Work is to make extensive use of releasing statements. The process begins with the client entering a relaxed state and getting in touch with their subconscious. The facilitator will then guide the client to explore the desires, thoughts, and emotions that surface. Each client will have a different experience: some will describe fantastic stories, while others may only experience numbness.
Once a suitable target has been identified, the facilitator guides the client to re-experience their remembered pain and suffering. At the point when the client has fully entered into this state, the facilitator generates releasing statements with the help of their intuition. The client will then repeat those statements, intending it to be their choice and focusing their Will fully on uttering the statements.
The client will experience a huge emotional release upon uttering the suitable statements. They will be asked to repeat the same statement until the emotions have run dry. After that, they will continue declaring other statements until they feel empty.
Spoken words are special because they act as a bridge to bring the Higher Power down into our bodies. Saying the words silently within our mind has no such effect.
In the name of Creation,
I grant Life to the Physical,
I gift Imagination to the Mundane,
I draw Choice out of Possibility,
I embody Individuality out of Existence.
