Lester Levenson is the man who inspired the Sedona Method. At age 42, Lester was at the pinnacle of worldly success, yet he was an unhappy and very unhealthy man. After his second coronary attack, his doctors sent him home to die.
Instead of giving up, Lester decided to go within himself, and there he found what he needed. His body became healthy, and he entered a state of profound peace that never left him until he left this world at the age of 84.
From the book “The Sedona Method” by Hale Dwoskin:
“In 1952, at age 42, Lester, a physicist and successful entrepreneur, was at the pinnacle of worldly success, yet he was an unhappy and very unhealthy man. He had many health problems, including depression, an enlarged liver, kidney stones, spleen trouble, hyperacidity, and ulcers that had perforated his stomach and formed lesions. He was so unhealthy, in fact, that after having his second coronary attack, his doctors sent him home to his Central Park South penthouse apartment in New York City to die.
“Lester was a man who loved challenges. So, instead of giving up, he decided to go back to the lab within himself and find some answers. Because of his determination and concentration, he was able to cut through his conscious mind to find what he needed. What he found was the ultimate tool for personal growth—a way of letting go of all inner limitations. He was so excited by his discovery that he used it intensively for a period of three months. By the end of that period, his body became totally healthy again. Furthermore, he entered a state of profound peace that never left him through the day he died on January 18, 1994.”
From “The Sedona Method – The NEW Basic Course” CD3 by Hale Dwoskin:
“One of the things that [Lester] noticed is that a lot of the people he started talking to about what he had discovered had this firm belief in poverty. They believed that if you were going to be into spirituality, that you had to be poor. And so, to prove that that wasn’t correct, what Lester did—in less than a year, with no money down… he amassed 23 apartment buildings in Manhattan and the Bronx, New York. And, because after that he felt so confident in his ability to create whatever he needed, he decided to give them all away. And the rest of his life, he lived simply creating whatever he needed as he needed it.”
Ideas For Creating Your Own Miracles
Lester’s case shows the unlimited power that each of us possess to create our own realities. It is our birthright, a gift of love from our Source.
When Lester discovered “a way of letting go of all inner limitations,” he shifted from fear to love and created a miracle. That miracle healed his body and healed his life. He lived the rest of his life without fear or anxiety, demonstrating the truth behind these words from A Course in Miracles:
“The Self that God created needs nothing. It is forever complete, safe, loved and loving. It seeks to share rather than to get; to extend rather than project. It has no needs and wants to join with others out of their mutual awareness of abundance.”
We are no different from Lester. If we are willing to put forth the effort to discover “a way of letting go of all inner limits,” we too will find the peace that allows us to create whatever we want whenever we want. The key is to stop striving after what we want and instead release all resistance to what we want. I found the Sedona Method easy and effective in helping me release my resistance to what I want. In the Miracles Toolbox on this site, I also share other tools that has helped me.
May your days be full of miracles!
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all of the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ~A Course in Miracles
