Letting go of disaproval of a feeling (Larry Crane)

Hi,

I have been releasing mainly following the Sedona Method book and I hadn't read/heard Larry's book or teachings. Recently, just out of interest or thinking there might be something I could learn, I read his book about love.

His book was mostly about giving approval and be loving. We have discussed "giving love/approval" or "turning feelings into love" so I don't mean to discuss it again here. But he also wrote about "letting go of disapproval of a negative feeling" such as fear, anxiety, etc. After that he recommends saying "yes" to these feelings as well(giving approval). He even says that we should let go of disapproval of pain, debt etc. and then give approval to it.  

So I tried that, and seems like it worked. But is it the same thing as welcoming? For example, if I'm afraid of something, I don't also like the feeling to be here. The main ways to let go of this fear according to the Sedona method is "drop it" or "welcome it," and "welcoming" seems similar or same as "letting go of disapproval" and "give approval" of the fear.   

It confused me a bit because if it's not the same thing then I'm not sure if I'm to let go of the feeling itself or "disapproval" of the feeling.  Let's say, when I'm afraid of something, there will be two options - "Could I let go of this feeling (of fear)?" and "Could I let go of disapproval of this feeling?"


Thank you!

Yes it's the same thing - to me anyway in an experiential way.  Lester said square all with love, this is a similar approach.  Releasing on the 3 wants is the main way Larry reccomends people do it.  Try the Abundance course, it has a money back guarantee.  I love Larry's stuff it has helped me immensley.  Hale's stuff was great but it confused me.

Every wed Larry's Teachers do a free call, here's one Kris did last night.  He opens it up with giving yourself approval and then talks callers through releasing the 3 wants.

Thank you Silence for your replies. Much appreciate it :)

if you want the simplicity go directly to the wants. forget 'disapproval of this feeling' Are you wanting to control or not?

If you had no desire to control a feeling would you need to approve of it or disapprove of it?

It's a good point, but it confuses me a bit. You mean if I want to "control" the fear (for example). But isn't it that we are to break down the feeling into the underling 3 wants, not to check if I want to control the feeling itself?  In other words, the fear might be coming from wanting control, so we let go of wanting control of the situation (or what we are fearing) but not wanting the control the fear itself?

And if underling want is wanting control, then we can either decide to let go or welcome wanting control(?). So my question still stands - Is "letting go of disapproval" or "giving approval) is the same as welcoming in this? I'm thinking so now after Silence's reply, but I'd like your input as well. Thanks!

Fully realizing that my experience my not be anyone elses - I was totally stuck and not releasing at all.  I spoke with one of Larry's teachers who explained that releasing only happens in CAP.  After doing the letting go of disapproving of myself or giving myself approval I was able to release on the 3 wants.

I think you read my thread about the wants and the feelings.... 

It doesn't matter what you want to control. If you want to control then you want to control.

You use the feelings to see if you are wanting to control 

What hurts isn't the feeling but the attachment to the feeling and what creates the attachment? 

The Wants...

The goal isn't to release all the feelings but (at some point) to release the attachment to them

You could have released the Three wants without doing the disapproving of yourself trick

The reason you released is because you were willing to release. See, you believed that you had to do tricks in order to release - or maybe Larry's teacher gave you space and confidence.

It happened to me many times that I thought I couldn't release until someone advanced gave me space and courage.  

But in the end it was your decision (and mine of course) to let go or..... hold on.

If you decide to hold on no tricks are going to help 

if you believe in the tricks they will help you because you think so

if you release with someone advanced when you are stuck- that's the real power -:)

I do think that had a lot to do with it.

OK Shai, I get what you mean now :)

I called Ralph so many times telling him "I can't release"

then we he guided me I saw that I can.... and it had nothing to do with disapproving myself or giving myself approval. Ralph knows the simplicity of the method because he studied under Lester 

You know you can always call him too he is helping everyone and he won't charge you anything

Thank you.  I was in one of Larry's 90 days which gives you access to a teacher,  the one I had was his "main" teacher without naming names.  From what I experienced he is in a very high place, I felt lifted just from speaking with him
