The present work describes a simple and effective means by which to let go of the obstacles to Enlightenment and become free of negativity. During the many decades of the author’s clinical psychiatric practice, the primary aim was to seek the most effective ways to relieve human suffering in all its many forms.

5.0 out of 5 stars An easier and better way to let go of those things that are disturbing to you. Feb. 18 2013
By James D - Published on
Verified Purchase
It is helpful to all who want to let go of things that are disturbing them. On the back it says " it is an valuable resource for all professionals who work in the areas of mental health, psychology, medicine , self help, addiction recovery, and spiritual development. It should have included anybody that wants less stress and more peace in their lives.

Dr. Hawkins gives you solutions that have worked for him and patients for over 50 years. They have worked exceptionally well for me too. For example, I loved the can't VS won't question to put things in perceptive. I can't means you have an underlying fear. He gives you ways to see through the fears and realized that you really can so it really is a won't. That question is one that I use to see what my true motives are. All the information on work, love, depression, grief, courage, happiness and etc were outstanding in helping me to recontextalize the way I was seeing things. The healing the past technique I used for over a month and couldn't see what he was trying to get me to do. I kept at it. Then wham!!! It hit me like a ton of bricks. I immediately let go of enormous anger I had about a situation that I had carried for years. WOW did that ever change things for me. I use it now and I see things with a different pair of glasses. The chapter on relationships was great also. There are so many other things that are of help in this book. Whenever some emotions come up I usually pick this book up. Then I find an answer to help get rid of the pain or emotion. You have to apply the techniques and work them to get results. They do work!

I am much calmer and have much less stress. This is a how to book on how to improve all areas of your life. Really a must read for all the professionals listed above and the average person.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book pushed me over the edge March 7 2013
By Keif - Published on
Just by the act of reading through this book I could feel negative blocks becoming undone of their own. And for the more ingrained negative blocks and beliefs, there are specific techniques that I never would have thought of on my own in order to "Let Go" of negative patterns in the mind. One of them is a problem solving technique of surrendering where you don't try and surrender on the problem, but you surrender the negative charge energy of the question you are asking yourself. For instance I was trying to get into a new career and didn't think there were many options for me. So rather than going out into the world and white-knuckle through finding a job, I surrendered on the question "Why can't I find a purposeful, prosperous career". I immediately felt an overwhelming negative surge within me that I was able to surrender using the Letting Go Technique. Now the fear has greatly lessened and options for a career seem to spring up out of nowhere. I found they were there the whole time, but I just couldn't see them when I was in the negative, self-deprecating state. There are many more great techniques to surrender in this book that have been so helpful. I cannot be grateful enough to have found this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Description of the contents of Letting Go, by Dr David Hawkins: Feb. 24 2013
By Andy K - Published on
This book both teaches, models, and facilitates letting go. Just reading it opens new ways to become more free.

The book opens with a freewheeling inventory of spiritual seeking and the resultant bewilderment. There's nothing like it in all Hawkins' work for fun and zaniness.

Then the book's solution is presented through a brilliant analysis titled the Anatomy of Emotions. This is the master key to Hawkins' work of bringing emotional peace to humanity. David discovers five strategies for dealing with emotions and shows unexpected ways to using these five strategies.

Particularly empowering is the discussion of denial of surrender, which explains why the mechanism of denial whereby many former students of Dr Hawkins can "forget" the miraculous healings they experienced as a result of the work; this helps create compassion for people's baffling tendency to give false explanations for having surrendered through the enlightened Presence of a spiritual teacher.

Two categories of letting go are letting go of negative emotions and letting go of resisting positive emotions:

Two thirds of the book evokes and teases out these two categories experientially. Each of these chapters open with a mini inventory of similar words, which just by reading through surfaces new options and choices, new ways to get free. Rather than an intellectual or therapeutic approach, here we have crisp clinical observations, flashes of wit (Hawkins is the George Carlin of Consciousness), and recontextualizations that bring release. Subjects include love, sex, money, work, sales, and happiness.

The last third of the book treats specifics and relies on experience with the previous two thirds of the book. A miraculous and simple way to solve problems well and make the right decisions through letting go is shared.

The last two chapters concern letting go of illness and letting go of the small self or ego/mind. They are for the healer and spiritual student in us all.

Although David Hawkins died in late 2012, I hope this will not be the last of his manuscripts Veritas publish. He was a kind man and he is missed. In addition, work so useful and caring will find a lively and appreciative audience. Five stars from a completely happy customer.

5.0 out of 5 stars His most accessible book Feb. 21 2013
By Jonathan M Wheeler - Published on
Dr. Hawkins always said he started writing because he wanted to be able to reach the most people and relieve suffering. I think he did it with this book. I have read all of his other books and listened to many lectures and have seen great advances in my journey to enlightenment, but most other people I talk to about his work have not been able to get into it enough to see the benefits of his teachings. All of his other work can be very deep and can get a little academic, where this book is all practical, applicable insight that will work right away. He only touches on the map of consciousness in a general way, and does not tie it in as deeply with kinesiology which has been a hangup for many people I've talked to. Even if you are not a serious spiritual student, just someone wanting to improve their life and have greater happiness, this will help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book Yet! Feb. 22 2013
By Michael Brandmeier - Published on
While other books use a lot of paper to say just a few things, David Hawkin's wastes no space at all.
He packs more into one paragraph than most are able to do in a whole chapter, if not in some entire books.
This is a very, very advanced, yet very accessible book which could prove to be very helpful to
many people on this earth. I will keep it by my bedside for It's a life-time study, a life-time handbook. Thanks David!
