Become aware of unconscious fears and transmute them.


Interview with a Vulture: Advice on How to Cultivate Discernment

Cultivate DiscernmentRheanni Lightwater: Hello, Mr. Vulture. Could you tell me if are there any humans that you respect?

V. Vulture: Hey, that’s easy. I like folks who can say “no” to things that they don’t want to do.

RL: And why is that?

VV: Because there’s too many people that don’t pay enough attention to what’s good for them, you know what I mean?

RL: I guess I don’t know what you mean exactly.

VV: Let me put it this way – people like to take chances, right?

RL: Well, quite a few of us do.

VV: Right. But a lot of those people take foolish chances just because they think their friends will like them better or they want to be cool.

RL: I think they do that because it’s easier to go along with the crowd than to be different.

VV: It may seem easier at first, but after a while they stop thinking for themselves and just do whatever other folks tell them to do. Eventually, they lose touch with their gut instincts.

RL: You mean they stop taking care of themselves?

VV: That’s right. That makes them easy prey for vultures like me. Now, if folks would pay attention to their gut feelings, they would know whether they really want to do something or if they’re just being taken for a ride.

If you don’t mind a little friendly advice, take a look at the Circle I sent you, while you ask yourself this question:

“Is there a situation in my life right now, where I’m in danger or being taken advantage of in a harmful way?”

If the answer that comes to you is no, then good for you! You are listening to your gut instincts.  But, If the answer is yes, you might want to ask what that situation is and what to do about it. It’s always a good idea to know when someone is lying to you. 

It’s even more important to realize when you’ve been lying to yourself!

RL: That sounds like pretty good advice.

VV: You bet! Take it from someone who knows.

RL: I will. Thank you, Mr. Vulture.

VV: No problem.

Reforming Misplaced Logic

This Mind Exercise* helps you investigate how misplaced logic or reasoning could prevent you from actualizing your goals. Let’s start with an explanation of logic that I like to use:

Rheanni Lightwater - Reforming Misplaced Logic
Mind Exercises with Rheanni Lightwater

Logic provides an explanation of why things are the way they are. Logic is the reason why something does or does not fit together, irrespective of how you feel about it. You may want something to work in a particular way, but that doesn’t mean that it does. You cannot make it work simply through desire or thinking positively. To have good working logic, objectivity is imperative because emotions distort the facts and contribute to erroneous or misplaced reasoning.

The success of logic depends upon the proper identification of first cause, or the original and true premise. If you don’t have the true cause, the line of reasoning will be inaccurate. This kind of misplaced reasoning creates repeated mistakes and errors in judgement. So, in order for our logic or line of reasoning to work for us, we need to use underlying, original premises that are objectively accurate.

For example: One apple plus one apple equals two apples... 1 + 1 = 2

How Can Misplaced Logic Impair Personal Growth and Joy?

Because of the way we are conditioned, good working logic is difficult to master. Why? Possibly because our human desire to have things work the way we want them to is very strong and often left unexamined.

misplaced logicIn order to justify or validate our feelings and passions, we tend to look for original premises that will prove our way is right. The emotional need to “be right” outweighs our objectivity.  Logic used in this way is out of balance. Unfortunately, many of our beliefs about ourselves and the world are based on incorrect original premises and inaccurate reasoning that we learned as children.

Here are a couple of examples: As a child, I used misplaced reasoning when I chose to view other people’s negative reactions as an original premise that there was something wrong with me.

I was also taught that you can achieve peace by waging war. I have always disagreed because I thought there was misplaced reasoning in there somewhere. My definition of peace is harmony, goodwill and being in agreement. By that logic, peace and waging war simply do not fit together and it’s been proven innumerable times throughout history.

However, if I bother to look up the meaning of the word ‘peace’, I’ll discover that peace can also mean ‘truce’. Truce means a cessation or pause in hostilities for a certain period of time. Certainly, it has been proven that a truce can be achieved by waging war under certain circumstances. So you can see that my original premise set me up with a purist world view where I could spend a lot of wasted energy on ‘being right’ and creating conflict, rather than on being peaceful and harmonious with myself!”

It’s also worth noting that sometimes what used to follow logically no longer does because underlying conditions or timing has changed. This becomes more and more common as we adjust to the New Paradigm.”

*from the Learning in the New Paradigm Series by Rheanni Lightwater: Mind Exercises to retrain your mind to focus on “balance” or  “joy”, rather than “perfection.”


Misplaced Logic

The following Mind Exercise is made up of a simple series of Intuitive Learning Circles and questions. They’ve been put together to help you explore your own reasoning and how you can reform misplaced logic that’s causing trouble in your life.

Mind Body Integration

Mind Body IntegrationFor best results, look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.

All you have to do is read the instructions and then follow through on the directions while you gaze softly at the Circle.


Is Your Logical Reasoning Working For or Against You?

Step One: Choose a situation where you want to check your logic.

Relax and gently focus on a piece of reasoning that you would like to explore. You’ll know because it will be a question in your mind, like “How does this work?” “What doesn’t fit?” or “What am I missing?” “If I put this idea out into the world, what is likely to come back?” Place your question in the center open space of this Circle. Give yourself a chance to gather up unconscious information and gently focus on the experience.

It will help to imagine you can bring all the energy into focus on the center, open space of each Intuitive Learning Circle.

 

Step Two: Clarify what’s been happening.

See if you can determine if there is a danger behind your current underlying premise. What kind of reasoning have you been using? How has it been working out as a result?

Why do you think this keeps happening?

 

Step Three: Name the underlying premise and examine its results.

Let this Circle help you evaluate your behavior in relationship to the underlying premise.

What is the underlying premise? What do you do?

When I think or believe ___________, I _____________.

Is this misplaced logic? Is my reasoning sound? Did something about the situation change lately?

Is my current underlying premise what I really want? Are the results I’m getting sustainable? Can I tell what I need to do?

 

Step Four: Slow down and gently explore how the original premise came to be.

Was this behavior rational in the past? Where or whom did you learn this from? Was there a valid reason based on verifiable evidence?

Give yourself time to sort out your reasoning process. In this situation, do you feel pressure to “be right,” or can you come to a different conclusion that fits better?

 

As I mentioned before, “Sometimes what used to follow logically no longer does because underlying conditions or timing has changed.” Let’s examine that possibility…

Step Five: Get present.

Relax for a minute while you gaze softly at this Circle. Where are you? Put your feet firmly on the floor. What is the time and date? Open and close your hands into fists. All these things help us get more present.

Now, bring the original question back into your mind, and ask the questions again: “How does this work?” “What doesn’t fit?” or “What am I missing?” “If I made appropriate corrections and then put this idea out into the world, what would likely come back?” Make note of what comes to you.

What, if anything, has changed?

 

Step Six: Empower your highest good.

What, if anything, would you like to do differently?

 

Step Seven: Free your Self from harmful underlying premises and misplaced logic.

Being right isn’t always that great. Are there any agreements that you need to release? Release your Self from the chains of the past!

Imagine that you can send this Circle all the way up and down your spine, unlocking padlocks and chains at every vertebra.

Do that both crossed and uncrossed.

Once you feel like you’ve freed yourself, what new agreements would you like to make that would help things work out better?

 

Step Eight: Make energetic corrections to recalibrate and restore balance.

Start by bringing your heart center into balance.

 

If there are any reversals or blockages in your energy, use this symbol and affirmation to make corrections.

“I repair the glitches, holes and blockages in my energy system.”

 

Balance your senses and bring them into a proper connection with your heart and Soul.

 

Connect directly with the energy of the Earth to help you ground (make sure your feet are still firmly on the ground).

 

Step Nine: Dissolve the False Mental Constructs.

Dissolve destructive mental and emotional blueprints or entanglements that contribute to false underlying premises.

Visualize the entanglements as dark clouds or other apparitions. Either send them to the Light or see them dissolve into pure sunlight. Do this both crossed and uncrossed. That way, different patterns will be accessed and dissolved. 

Please note: Never send destructive energies into the Earth, she already has too much to handle now. Use the Earth for planting seeds of happiness and life – not death!

 

The Essential HumanTo make sure the process is complete, detach from the misplaced logic using The Essential Human. Follow the processes on pages 97 – 101 until you can see yourself standing next to the ocean with the Sun sparkling on the water.

It’s a new dawn and your energy is completely clear…  the darkness completely gone. 

Take all the time that you need.

 

Clear away any residual junk or debris with this Circle. Sweep all that junk and chaos out of your head and send it to the Sun. 

Congratulations! You have just gotten to the bottom of some misplaced reasoning that’s been causing you problems! This may be a good time to get up and walk. Move around! Be out in nature to help you integrate these important changes.


Extra-intuitive Activities

The following extra-intuitive activities aren’t required, but they can really help you create sufficient conditions for actualizing your goals, talents and gifts…

Now that your mind is fresh…

What would you like to experience now? Is that a goal that you can get behind?

“My new underlying premise is ___________________.

 

Let your consciousness reorganize itself around your new goal and premise.

I am _________. My reformed goal is __________________.

 

 

Evaluate your Goal and Premise Using the Four Directions

Use your imagination to view your new goal and premise from the East.

Is my goal positioned correctly? _____  Is it in the New Paradigm? _____

Does it work with the new underlying premise or against it? ____  If not, can I tell what needs to change?

Do I have sufficient conditions for success from this angle? If not, what would help?

 

Use your spiritual guidance for discernment from the West.

Am I heading for danger? ____ Am I going in the correct direction? ____ Am I following my guidance to the best of my ability at this time? ____ 

Do I have sufficient conditions for success from this angle? If not, what would help? Is there another piece of reasoning that’s working against me in this situation? If so, you might want to go through the exercise again now or later.

 

Use your healthy spiritual reason to evaluate from the North.

In this situation, am I being controlled? ____ Do I have my freedom? ____

Am I respecting myself? ____ What would love do?

Do I have sufficient conditions for success from this angle? If not, what would help?

 

Use conscious decision making skills from the South.

What am I deciding? Will I be able to follow through short term and long term? _________________

Is there a conflict? ___ If so, can it be resolved? ____ Can I tell how?

Do I have sufficient conditions for success from this angle? If not, what would help?

Once you get a confident, heartfelt answer, Congratulations! You have looked at your goal and premise from several important angles. You might want to make a note of what you’ve learned and what you’re going to change.


INTEGRATION

Imagine that you can access your beneficial karma for reason and self-confidence. Gather all your good deeds in the center, blank area of this Circle.

“I access my beneficial karma.  I plant the seeds for actualizing my new goal based on true and reasonable premises.”


Completion

The mind intuitively appreciates closure. Let’s get grounded as we complete this mind exercise.

Place both feet on the floor and put your hands on your knees if you can. Gaze softly at the Circle and repeat the affirmation until you feel your body has fully settled in the present.

“I am grounded in the present. I feel strong and balanced.”


Future Pacing

Future pacing is a way to deepen the effects of any mind body healing by projecting a preferred outcome into the future. Let’s use that idea to solidify what you’ve just learned about how to be more intuitive.

Ask yourself: “How will it feel to implement this new reasoning in the future?”

What about later today or tomorrow? A month from now?

How does it feel a year from now?

 

CLOSURE

Finish it all up now by sealing and healing any pathways or holes that lead back to old harmful patterns or suffering.

“All holes are sealed and healed.”

Closure for Misplace Logic

Be sure to rest now and do something nice for yourself!

Learning Resiliency with Mind Exercises

Learning resiliency is another way to say “I want to know how to be stronger and in charge of myself.”

One of the biggest challenges in learning resiliency is dealing with energy drains.

Learning Resiliency - Getting sucked into an energy drainIt’s so easy to get sucked into negative, disaster thinking. All you have to do is turn on any form of media and within minutes you’re hit with intense waves of anger, fear, even paranoia. Before you know it, you can hear that loud, sucking sound of your energy being drained right out of you!

Of course there are plenty of disastrous events that are actually happening. It doesn’t pay to isolate, live in denial or surround yourself with ‘nothing to see here’ apathy. However, paying too much attention to problems while ignoring the solutions is like feeding a shark and then expecting it to behave nicely. It ain’t gonna happen!

Our problems can’t be solved from the same mental position they were created from. A positive balance can be struck by consciously pulling your attention and energy away from the problems and redirecting them to genuinely helpful solutions.

It may sound hard to do, but learning resiliency through this short Mind Exercises is a simple 4 Step process.

With the Intuitive Learning Circle™ method, you can easily use the Circles below as refocusing tools. All you have to do is be open and follow the simple directions. Each Circle helps gather unconscious information, organize awareness and illuminate solutions that come directly from your Soul. You are in charge!

Start out by taking a moment to consider the kinds of situations that really suck you in. Your energy drain could be anything – work, family, politics, technology, social media or even a personal relationship.

What energy drain comes to mind first?

Next, scroll down and gaze softly at the short sequence of Intuitive Learning Circles™ below. Let each Circle help you access intuitive answers to the questions that go along with them.

Step 1:

Take a moment to relax and take a few deep breaths. Let your shoulders drop and gently look at the Circle in whatever way that appeals to you. Once you feel pretty relaxed. Ask yourself this question:

“What am I paying too much attention to that isn’t in my best interests?”

It’s important that you take whatever answer comes to you because that answer is your Inner Guidance speaking to you.

Protection

Step 2:

Gaze softly at this next Circle that helps you access your unconscious decisions:

“What decisions am I making about this situation? What have I decided about myself? Are those productive thoughts?”

If they are productive, great! Make them even stronger.

If they’re not productive, what kind of thoughts and decisions would be better for you to make? Don’t judge, just keep a mental note. Oftentimes when we change our decisions, the situation begins to change too.

Step 3:

As you gaze at this Circle, ask yourself:

“Am I willing to close the pathways in my awareness that lead to disaster thinking and energy drains?”

If the answer is yes, use your imagination with this Circle to see the pathways close, as if they were never there. 

Step 4:

Am I heading in the direction that is genuinely helpful to me?”

If the answer you get is no, imagine that your spirit is gently turning you in the direction that would be most helpful to you.

Once you’re clear that you’re heading in the right direction, you have successfully pulled yourself out of disaster thinking.

Congratulations!

Now that you know how to use the Circles and what they can do, you might want to experiment some more. There’s a list of possibilities in the next section.

Learning Resiliency - Extra-intuitive Activities

How Can You Choose a Mind Exercise or Self-care Formula That Will Further Help Your Personal Growth in Learning Resiliency?

There are three processes that I recommend in this situation:

  1. Strengthen your personal energy by standing strong and Grounding in the Truth.
  2. Clear inappropriate interference and attachments with Develop Healthy Boundaries.
  3. Make sure your environment is supporting your highest good with Setting Up a Safe Space.

Take a look at the red symbol below and ask your heart:
“Which strengthening exercise would help me, right now? Process #1.. 2.. or 3?”

SOS - Soul Oriented Solutions

Remember to take the very first answer that comes to you, because that’s your intuition (Inner Wisdom) speaking. If more than one process comes up, make a mental note of the order they came to you. Start with the one that came first, then see if you need more help.

Once you have your process number, go ahead and click on the link to that number and follow the directions.

This is the intuitive way to decide which process would help you with learning resiliency right now!

Retrain Your Mind To Go For Joy

Why does joy elude us? Because the mind is busy going for other things. Like “winning,” being “right,” “desirable” or “perfect.”

Yet, when you retrain your mind to go for “joy” rather than “perfection,” amazing things start to happen…

Retrain Your Mind to Go For Joy

For a lot of us, a tremendous amount of our energy has been focused on externally sourced goals. We try so hard to win, to look good, to escape punishment or to be “right.” Sadly, many of us are taught that we’re supposed to be perfect, so that’s what we’ve trained the mind to go for.

Retrain Your Mind - Let Go of "Being Perfect"But what does “perfection” mean? Whose definition of being perfect are we using? Our parents? Mom? Dad? Our boss? Our family? Religion? The media? All of these definitions are externally sourced and full of contradictions.

More often than not, “perfection” simply means doing what somebody else wants us to do. No wonder so many of us are spinning around, chasing after a hundred different things! Going for perfection usually creates pressure, confusion and an overwhelmed mind!

On the other hand, going for joy usually creates more joy – which connects us with our true creative spark, which seems as though it would be much better. However, in some situations, it might be even more effective to go for “freedom”, “balance” or “sustainable prosperity.”

Retrain Your Mind

If you would like to experiment with this idea, you can go through Retrain Your Mind to Go for Joy and see what happens to your mood and point of view!


Welcome to Learning in the New Paradigm – Mind Exercises to Retrain Your Mind to Go for Joy Rather than “Perfection.”

~ with Rheanni Lightwater, CHT, CKP

Rheanni Lightwater - Retrain Your MindThe Intuitive Learning Circles are a great tool to help you retrain your mind to successfully move away from the internal conflict that comes from having to be perfect. This short exercise will get you started. I’ve put it together to help you discover a way to refocus on internally sourced goals that are joyful and genuinely meaningful for you! All you have to do is relax and gaze softly at the Circles while you gently contemplate the affirmations or questions that go with them. Here’s an example:

“I reclaim and balance my five senses.”

“I fine tune them to be present and aware of my Soul and its purpose.”

“I use them to become aware of interference, obstacles and false ideas about perfection.”

“I focus on beneficial solutions, opportunities and joy.”


An important note about Mind Body Integration ~ 

Retrain Your Mind for Mind Body IntegrationThe brain and body communicate through different channels when a part of you is crossed over the center of your body. As you go through the steps, cross and uncross a hand or foot over the midline of your body when you gaze at each Circle. Use a soft focus and breathe patiently. This will help you integrate your thinking more fully so that you can be more creative. If you have any negative self-talk, let it go by breathing through it.

Feel free to move at anytime in any way to help you embody your experience! 

Changes in the flow of your environment may cause the energy in your subtle energy field to start running in reverse or shut down entirely. 

Relax and let this symbol help you make corrections. Relax and sense your overall energy. If it feels jagged or disjointed, stay with the Key until the energy smooths out. Affirm this intention both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body:

“I repair the glitches, holes and blockages in my energy system.”

Please note: You may need to do this several times during the course of this exercise…


 

Okay, so let’s begin to retrain your mind…

Step One: In your current situation, who or what is defining “perfection” for you?

Perhaps it’s the media or something you learned at home or in school.

Wherever it came from, does that definition create joy for you? Is it creating more balance or freedom?

So, what are you actually asking your mind to accomplish?

 

Step Two: How much of your energy have you been sending to this definition?

If it were a percentage, what might it be?

10%? 20%? 50% or more?

Would you like to send that energy to create more joy in this situation instead?

 

Step Three: Imagine you can retrain your mind to reorganize itself around “joy,” rather than “perfection.”

Place the word “Joy,” “Balance”, “Freedom” or Sustainable Prosperity” in the center, open space of the Circle and soften your gaze. Relax. While you’re doing this, the Circle may seem to rotate, spin or even change colors. If that happens – go with it. Release control of the experience and let your thoughts re-arrange themselves. Your new goal may turn into images, experiences, colors, sounds or movements. Let it happen! You will know that the process is complete when the energy subsides.

You can get up and move around if you like. Take all the time that you need so you can align with the inner guidance system of your Soul!

 

Step Four: Think about your situation again and bring your senses into balance by focusing on the center open space of this Circle.

Ask your heart: “What do I really want to accomplish?”

 

Step Five: Take a moment to clarify your intention through your Third Eye Chakra. Focus inwardly on what’s most important for you.

Chakra Healing - Third Eye Chakra

Remember to keep breathing!

 

Step Six: Clear the energy in your Heart Chakra so you can connect your ideas about Joy with the true creative spark of your life force.

From there, connect with your other intentions for balance, freedom, sustainable prosperity, etc.

Keep directing the energy to the center open space of the Circle. Doing so will help you bring your true intentions more fully into the center of your life!

 

Step Seven: How might you approach your life situation differently now? What action can you take that will help you know you’re going for joy?

How is it different when you go for balance or freedom? What about sustainable prosperity?

Congratulations! Going for joy rather than perfection is a central concept of the Intuitive Learning Circles that will help you to live and prosper in the New Paradigm of co-operation and sustainable prosperity.

Help For Learning Difficulties

Do You Struggle with Learning Difficulties?

I’ve learned from experience that what others may call a disease or disability can become the foundation for brilliance, innovation and thinking outside the box.

Rheanni Lightwater - Help for Learning Difficulties
Rheanni Lightwater

I was raised in a time before ADD, ADHD or Dyslexia had names. In the fifties and early sixties, kids like me didn’t have learning difficulties, we were simply labelled slow, troublemakers or stupid. Judging from the amount of time I spent in the principle’s office, I was probably put into the troublemaker category pretty early on!

Learning Difficulties: The Genius of Thinking Differently

Learning Difficulties - Left HandedI remember when I was just beginning to learn how to write my name in cursive. I was trying to figure out which hand worked better making all those loops and curly-ques. While experimenting with my left hand, my second grade teacher came over to me and plucked the pencil right out of my hand. “You don’t want to use that hand,” she barked, “only bad people are left handed.”

I didn’t like that teacher much (for obvious reasons) so, at that moment I made a decision. I was going to be left-handed just to spite her! To this day, I am quasi-ambidextrous – I write with my left hand and do just about everything else with my right.

Similarly, I had learning difficulties getting my b’s and d’s right. They always seemed to get mixed up in my mind. I was restless in class because I had trouble concentrating and following what the teacher said was unbearable to me. In my early 20’s I even experienced stuttering because I literally couldn’t think of anything to say when in conversation. My mind would go completely blank, which was humiliating to me.

I know that most of the time, advice from teachers, family and friends was meant to help. They just couldn’t understand why I had learning difficulties or what to do about them. Unfortunately, having a mind that’s wired differently meant that techniques that worked well for others, didn’t work well for me.

Much later in life, I started to accept that doing things the way that other people did them just wasn’t going to work for me. I was eventually forced to accept that my learning difficulties had to do with early childhood trauma when a family crisis put me into a full-fledged case of PTSD.

It took me quite a while to get my bearings again, but once I decided that it was okay to be different – outside of the approval of my family – my life took a sharp turn for the better. I stopped beating myself up and started to embrace the things that came naturally to me. I went into bodywork and somatic education together with hypnotherapy, Reiki and mind/body energy work. I began to experience a satisfaction and success that I had never known before. Finally, I was allowing the way I was wired to lead me into exciting new fields of discovery and innovation!

I set to work learning about and putting together techniques from many different disciplines to help me and my clients, many of whom were highly sensitive people with similar learning difficulties. I developed a whole system of tools for better focus and concentration using muscle testing. I’ve also found that they can help with emotional healing, reducing stress and providing a way to activate advanced states of intuition and creativity.

Testimonials for Rheanni Lightwater

Today, I use those tools to find solutions together with my clients and students – whether the issue is in their body, their thinking process or their environment. I call them the Intuitive Learning Circles and now I’m making them available to other people, like you – so that you can also experience the beauty and genius of thinking differently.

Creating Internal Safety

Learn How You Can Tap Into Your Second Chakra for Creating Internal Safety in Your Environment ~

The 2nd Chakra Is Deeply Connected with how well we Nurture and protect ourselves.

Primary Chakra LocationsYour 2nd chakra is located approximately 2-3 inches directly down from your navel.

It’s the energy plexus where emotions, digestion and immunity all come together. When it gets out of balance or entangled with toxic pollutants, your physical, emotional and spiritual health can be impacted in very negative ways.

Gaze softly at the Reiki Chakra Key below to help you balance and gather up physiological information that will organize your space in a way that will promote your health and safety.

The environment in your second chakra is very important to your self-care and emotional healing. When it’s balanced and healthy, it transmits a vibrant orange energy that is hopeful and attracts belonging and support. It’s also your creative center, the place where you generate your personal mana or creative energy. If it becomes stagnant, goes into shock or gets caught up in emotional entanglements, your physical, emotional and spiritual health suffers. In today’s environment, that’s something many of us are experiencing. This simple feng shui exercise is designed to help you go within and come up with important resources for staying healthy.

When you’re ready, pull out a piece of paper and something to write with so you can make notes as we go along…


Creating Internal Safety is based on SOS Mind Exercise #8: Setting Up a Safe Space

Creating Internal Safety by Setting Up a Safe Space In Creating Internal Safety, you’ll be utilizing your intuitive insight to implement very simple changes that can make a world of difference in how you’re creating stability and safety in your personal space. You’ll discover that your intuition and unconscious mind are much more aware of whats going on than you realize!

Go through this mind exercise by reading each step and then gazing softly at the Circle that goes with it to gain insight about what creative changes you can make in your internal and/or external environment that will help you.


Step 1. The goal of Creating Internal Safety is for you to get clarity about how well your personal space is supporting you and what you can do to make improvements. You might get insights about your body or your external environment. After all, they are connected and this is an important time to become aware of them.

First, take some time to slow down while you gaze softly at the Circle. Breathe in and out several times. Drop your shoulders. Relax your jaw. 

Move around and stretch if you need to.

Once you’re feeling relaxed, bring to mind the space that you’re inquiring about. Imagine that it’s moving in slow motion.

 

Step 2. Next, shift your attention to your own body, imagine you can see the space within your Second Chakra (remember, that’s located about 2″ below your navel).

Zoom in, like a camera. See or sense it moving in slow motion.

What do you notice? Go ahead and make notes about what you sense.

 

Step 3. In response to sudden challenges we’ve experienced in our environment, let’s use one of our Chakra Healing Keys to repair any damage due to pollutants, smoke, viral or destructive energies, which could cause reversals, allergic reactions, addictions, deformations, reversals and misdirections.

Let this symbol help you make corrections. Relax and sense your overall energy. If it feels jagged or disjointed, stay with the Key until your energy smooths out.

“I repair the glitches, holes and blockages in my chakra system.”

Do this both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body.

 

Step 4. Now that you’ve cleared your internal energy up a bit first, you can get a better awareness of your external environment.

Feeling safe is a major priority. Innocent happenings such as loud noises, flashing lights, repetitive motion or high frequencies can cause unpleasant reactions in you without your being consciously aware of them. Gaze at this Circle and ask for help so you can get more aware.

Gaze at this Circle for Divine Protection and ask for help and advice.

Let’s start with very simple questions that we take one at a time…

Is there anything in your personal space or immediate environment that could be triggering an unsettling reaction in you? Is anything irritating?

  • Is there a flashing light? Sudden movements?
  •  A sound? Are there disturbing frequencies?
  • Are toxic influences present? Anything else?

 

Step 5. You could be preoccupied by other things that are causing you to be anxious. You may be reorganizing your work/living arrangements or in the middle of a move or repairs. Let this Circle help you relax and answer questions about how you need to nurture yourself now, under your current circumstances.

Is there any clutter or something to let go of that would help ease the situation? If so, what is it and where is it located? Does something need to be added?
Are you tapping into nurturing, beneficial energies? If not, take a few moments with this Circle to help you do that.

Is there anything else?

 

Step 6. Physical objects in your environment carry a lot of energy through them, especially if they have been gifted to you or are second hand pieces. These could be books, equipment, furniture, pictures and other objects of art. Are there any objects in your home or office that are having a sharp or negative effect on you? If so, can you identify them?

What would remedy the situation?

Does something need to be moved, rearranged, cleaned or removed completely? Can something be brought in that would remedy the situation?

 

When dealing with emotional challenges, it’s often a great help to rearrange or clean out certain areas of the home – and that includes cleaning crystals. Read more about that here…

 

Step Seven: Since our recent transition out of the Piscean Age of Water into the Aquarian Age of Air, a new, generative form of life energy (chi’) has become available for us to use. Take several moments now to meditate on this symbol for you and your environment. Do that as often as you need to.

These positive affirmations will help:

“I access Divine Protection and close down all harmful energy channels left over from the old paradigm.”

My mind is open and clear to receive generative life force in the New Paradigm.”


 

Step Eight: Now is a good time to check back in with your body. Take a minute and use this next Circle to tune into yourself: What emotion(s) are running through you? Does that throw you off balance?

Is that dynamic helpful or harmful to you?

 

Step Nine: If it’s harmful, you might be internalizing an emotional complex – a compulsion, attitude, obsession or phobia from the collective unconscious.

If that’s happening, go through this short sequence to let it go. First, release your agreement to carry it any longer.

Let the energetic structure for it collapse and then visualize expelling the negative thoughts and emotions up to the Light.

By the way, there could be more than one. Check both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body to get them all.

 

This symbol can help you clear any remaining toxins out of your second chakra. Focus in again on that area about 2″ down from your navel and repeat your visualization of sending the debris to the Light.

Continue until you feel quite clear.

 

Seal up any drains, leaks or holes in your energy field before you move on.

 

Step Ten: Now you can turn your attention back to your external environment. Is there anything else about it that’s irritating you?

Identify it if you can. What will remedy the situation?

Do you need to pull your energy back from external situations and events?
Are you inadvertently tapping into harmful or distracting energies?
If so, use the Circle to pull your energy back and close off destructive energies.

Is there anything else about that?

 

Step Eleven. Is there anything that you could bring into your space that would help you be happier, more hopeful or more creative?

Would anything increase your good health, emotional stability or physical security?

Could anything be done to increase your experience of prosperity?
What might you add that would bring more beauty into your space?
What vision or experience would you like to project out into the world?

Is there anything else you need to know?

 

Step 10. You can finish the game today by closing the doors that might keep you open to the suffering of the past and the old paradigm.

Remind yourself that your personal space belongs to you and how you take care of it has a profound effect on the rest of your life!
