The Sedona Tools- Innovative Emotional Work
with Kim Picard
Creek of Attachment
Valley of Fear
Emotional trauma is a two-pronged experience- there’s the facts and the emotional effects. Both brain and mindfulness research support this delineation so leave the former to your reasoning center and the latter to your emotional center… and The Sedona Tools.
From the red rocks and Kimberly Picard, these concise experiential visualizations empower you to work through negative emotionality the way it was generated. Work at your own pace, comfort level and without judgment. As the emotional charge defuses, your reasoning center can more readily process the facts resulting in a more thorough resolution to trauma.

About Kim Picard:
Kim was well educated in the rational- Princeton, University of Chicago, banking. She was well schooled by childhood trauma, divorce and (!!!) teenagers.
Sedona gave her The Tools and the opportunity to work through the past and stand ready to work whenever needed going forward.
A SIMPLE VISUALIZATION TO HELP UNDERSTAND THE SEDONA TOOLS!
Picture a tautly blown up balloon.
The balloon represents the facts;
the air inside, your negative emotion. As you appropriately
release the air by working with The Tools, the facts
decompress and your reasoning center can readily process
what now amounts to a bit of crumpled plastic.
When you use all of your
capabilities and the right tools for the job,
trauma is most thoroughly resolved.
Take Appropriate Action
Each Tool is a short, interactive visualization which means- they’re experiential. This is how negative emotion is generated in the first place so it’s logical that it’s an effective way to work back through it. The Tools make it easy to be proactive which feels good in and of itself but you’ll feel even better after you’ve worked through that emotionality.
Work with the Appropriate Brain Power #1
The Tools are powered by your intent. You set your intent at the beginning of every session. This simple statement affirms that you are taking charge of your emotional well-being and that you will be working to the best of your ability at the time.
Work with the Appropriate Brain Power #2
The Tools are not only mindful but cutting edge. Mindfulness therapies including guided visualizations continue to gain in credibility thanks to clinical studies like the one just published by Georgetown University psychiatrists. That’s all great but The Tools are happy to be validated by the results you feel when you work with them.
There are eight different Tools (5-7 minutes each):
RELEASE: Fear, Shame, Guilt and Rage
RESOLVE: Attachment, Healing, Obsolete Beliefs and Judgment
But it’s not the location that really matters; it’s the work you do there. The Tools can easily be adapted or personalized to facilitate your work. Choose a new scenario or simply listen to your imagination!
THE WORK ZONES ARE ALSO JUDGMENT FREE
SO DON'T JUDGE YOURSELF, YOUR ACTIONS OR YOUR FEELINGS
JUST KEEP WORKING!
