This is a classic Gestalt therapy exercise in which you express your thoughts and feelings as if you were talking to a specific person. Even though they are not present, you direct your words and gestures at an empty chair and imagine that person sitting in it while you talk. This simple approach is designed to allow you to work through interpersonal or internal conflict. The Sedona Method questions at the end of the recording are designed for letting go of any emotions that may be brought up during the exercise and should be answered without much rumination. Either a yes or no answer is fine as simply asking the questions can lead to a profound release. May this offering empower us to meet and release any lingering ghosts of the past.
