Actually, verbalising the words let go, has a weird effect on the body, it stops resisting :-)
The simultaneous exhale, relax, and verbalization creates an associated anchor/trigger. Then when you do any of the three, you get the other two.

Just takes some practice to get them associated.

We can actually get pretty creative about what state of mind/body we want to access and activate.

Glad it worked for you.
