- The second way is to welcome the feeling, to allow the emotion just to be.

Sedona Method to drop stress
The Sedona Method is based on the power of feelings.
Think about it. If you FEEL powerful, then you act powerfully. If you feel sad, then you act sadly. Your feelings define how you operate in the world. And, unless you change those feelings, you are going to act as you have always acted, and you will produce the results you've always produced.
Use the Sedona Method with whole brain posture for better results
1. LET GO
Let me explain the technique more thoroughly by asking you to participate in a simple exercise. Pick up a pen, a pencil, or some small object that you would be willing to drop without giving it a second thought. Now, hold it in front of you and really grip it tightly. Pretend this is one of your limiting feelings and that your hand represents your gut or your consciousness. If you held the object long enough, this would start to feel uncomfortable yet familiar.
Now, open your hand and roll the object around in it. Notice that you are the one holding on to it; it is not attached to your hand. The same is true with your feelings, too. Your feelings are as attached to you as this object is attached to your hand.
We hold on to our feelings and forget that we are holding on to them. It’s even in our language. When we feel angry or sad, we don’t usually say, “I feel angry,” or, “I feel sad.” We say, “I am angry,” or, “I am sad.” Without realizing it, we are misidentifying that we are the feeling. Often, we believe a feeling is holding on to us. This is not true… we are always in control and just don’t know it.
Now, let the object go.
What happened? You let go of the object, and it dropped to the floor. Was that hard? Of course not. That’s what we mean when we say “let go.”
2. JUST LET IT BE
Sticking with this same analogy: If you walked around with your hand open, wouldn't it be very difficult to hold on to the pen or other object you’re holding? Likewise, when you allow or welcome a feeling, you are opening your consciousness, and this enables the feeling to drop away all by itself—like the clouds passing in the sky or smoke passing up a chimney with the flue open. It is as though you are removing the lid from a pressure cooker.
3. GO TO THE CORE
Now, if you took the same object—a pencil, pen, or pebble—and magnified it large enough, it would appear more and more like empty space. You would be looking into the gaps between the molecules and atoms. When you dive into the very core of a feeling, you will observe a comparable phenomenon: nothing is really there.
STEP BY STEP PROCESS
You can follow the 5 step process mentioned below...
Step 1: Focus on an issue that you would like to feel better about, and then allow yourself to feel whatever you are feeling in this moment.
Step 2: Ask yourself one of the following three questions:
• Could I let this feeling go?
• Could I allow this feeling to be here?
• Could I welcome this feeling?
Step 3: No matter which question you started with, ask yourself this simple question: Would I? In other words: Am I willing to let go?
Step 4: Ask yourself this simpler question: When?
Step 5: Repeat the preceding four steps as often as needed until you feel free of that particular feeling.
You will probably find yourself letting go a little more on each step of the process. The results at first may be quite subtle. Very quickly, if you are persistent, the results will get more and more noticeable. You may find that you have layers of feelings about a particular topic. However, what you let go of is gone for good.
You will find that as you use the Method, when you do catch yourself having done something you know you shouldn't have, you can always release afterwards. Then, over time, as you keep releasing, you'll catch yourself right in the middle of doing that thing that you know you shouldn't be doing. As you release, you'll be able to stop the behaviour right in the middle of doing it.
JUST DROP IT
Take a challenge to remain pure & clean for today. No filling of any garbage inside.
So when someone says something which you don't like - simply, loudly or silently say "I DROP"
Someone abuse you - say "I DROP"
Someone hurts you - say "I DROP"
Someone disappoints you - say "I DROP"
Someone bitches about you - say "I DROP"
Someone shouts at you - Smile and say - " I DROP"
Someone shows anger to you - say "I DROP"
Someone shows attitude to you - say "I DROP"
Someone stares badly - smile, stare back - say "I DROP"
Today let nothing which is not yours, come inside you.
Don't become a garbage ban and allow people to put their garbage in form of anger, hate, jealousy, bitterness inside YOU.
Do this every day and watch what you BECOME.
*While saying DROP, mentally visualize few kg of weight coming out of you.
As you master the technique of releasing, you will discover that even your deepest feelings are just on the surface. At the core you are empty, silent, and at peace—not in the pain and darkness that most of us would assume. In fact, even our most extreme feelings have only as much substance as a soap bubble. And you know what happens when you poke your finger into a soap bubble: it pops. That’s exactly what happens when you dive into the core of a feeling.
