Lunar New Year

Welcome in the Lunar New Year: Say Hello to the Dragon and Goodbye to the Year of the Rabbit ~

The Lunar New Year is a time of significant transition. In the Chinese Zodiac, each Lunar year has its own animal personality, yin/ yang polarity and elemental qualities that the ancients used to assist them as they navigated life. There are twelve signs in the Zodiac Cycle which repeats every twelve years.

The Year of the Yang Wood Dragon has officially started on February 10th, 2024.

Year of the Dragon: 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024, 2032…

Complimentary Signs: Monkey and Rat. Secret Friend: Rooster. Against Dog.

Positive Qualities: Energetic. Confident. Ambitious. Intelligent. Generous.
Challenging Qualities: Unstable. Intolerant. Lack of persistence. Unrealistic.

The Dragon’s Feng Shui Mandala below can give you a sense of what the archetype of the Dragon is about and how it may influence you. If you’re interested, gently contemplate its center and relax. When you’re ready, ask yourself these questions and journal the answers that come:

“What is the most important thing I can focus my energy and effort on during the Year of the Dragon?”

“What is the direction? Why is that important?
How can I utilize the energy of the Dragon to my best advantage?
Is there something I’m wasting time on? Something I’m not aware of?
If so, can I tell what they are and what would be the best thing to do?”

Allow your intuition to come forward and bring guidance from your innermost Self. 

This past lunar year, the Animal has been the Yin Water Rabbit.

Rabbit

The beneficial qualities of the Rabbit are: Docile. Peaceful. Fertile. Tender. Quiet. Gentle. Cautious and Considerate. Her fertility and connection with Family, Community and Prosperity is legendary.

Her more challenging qualities are: Irresolute. Skittish. Stubborn. Timid. Escapist and tending to Procrastination.

Rabbit is considered by many to be a trickster, however, if you were able to make friends with her, she may have taught you some very important lessons about being aware of your environment and sensing when something’s amiss. If you ask her nicely on the way out, she may make some last minute recommendations: What did you learn from Rabbit? Is there something else to learn? Does Rabbit sense any danger moving into the Year of the Dragon? If so, is it near or far? Is there a place or activity that that would be better to avoid? What is her advice?

As you consider how Rabbit’s energy has affected you personally, ask:

“Is there anything that I need to do or let go of? How can I make sure the Rabbit energy exits completely?” 

 

Feng Shui and Grounding in The New Lunar Year

As you can imagine, the Lunar New Year is an excellent time to prepare for new plans and personal growth for the future using the Art of Feng Shui. The seeds that are planted now are very close to being activated in the Spring.

 

Use this Soul Prayer Chart with your imagination to uproot any destructive tendencies or karmic seeds that you would rather not activate and grow in this New Lunar Year:

“I uproot any harmful karmic seeds, tendencies or “stakes” that may still be planted in the energy of the past year.”

You may want to be specific about some Rabbit characteristics that may have come up in you last year. For example, were you overly timid? Skittish? Stubborn? Did you procrastinate or go down too many rabbit holes? This is a great opportunity tend your own garden before those seeds sprout again!

“I pull myself out of any ‘rabbit holes’ that I am still stuck in.”

 

Use this symbol with positive affirmations to dissolve destructive blueprints of past extreme or indulgent behaviors. For example:

“I surrender destructive blueprints of wishful thinking, misconceptions and no win situations that sabotage my personal growth and happiness.”

“I send them to the Light. My Future is bright and clear.”

Always remember to release pain or harmful energies into the Light!

 

Before you can ground effectively in the Lunar New Year, are there any superstitions or emotional fantasies that you would like to move beyond and release to the Light?

“I let go of external, artificial expectations about how I should be.”

Moon - Lunar New Year

Is there anything that’s pulling you out of sync with your natural cycles or the cycles of the Moon? Are you willing and able to let them go? If so, release them to the Light as well.

“I am in sync with the Cycles of Nature and the Moon.”

“I honor and respect my own, personal cycles.”

 

Confirm that you’re using the generative life force of the Air Element to facilitate your transition out of the old and into the new:

“I close old energy channels that drain or depress me.”

“I choose to use generative life force to energize my path forward into the Lunar New Year.”

“I connect with life affirming directions and channels of communication.”

Note: This symbol can help you whenever you feel stuck, exhausted or confused.

 

There may be some conflicts, shock or energy fixations leftover from the past year that block your ability to perceive things clearly. If that’s the case, you’re not alone! Use Condor Medicine to help you soften and relax them.

“I relax and allow any frozen or tense thoughts to melt away.”

Breathe deeply and imagine the lines going in towards the center are going loose and limp like cooked spaghetti noodles until the tension releases.

There may be more than one. Do yourself a favor by taking the time now to resolve them so that you don’t carry them into the new year.

 

Bring your senses into balance so that you can be more present for the transition and see things as they are.

“How am I perceiving this? Am I accessing chaos, destruction or balance?”

If you’re accessing chaos, consciously turn the volume of your senses down so you can regain balance. If what you’re accessing seems dead or hopeless, turn the volume up to a more balanced perception of how things really are.

“I perceive my situation clearly.”

 

Respectfully close the door on the Year of the Rabbit so that you can open the door for what’s in the next Lunar New Year.

 

Now that one door has closed completely, another can open properly. Prepare yourself by activating and aligning with the creative energy and Fire of your Soul!

 

Welcoming the Year of the Yang Wood Dragon – February 10th, 2024.

As mentioned before, the beneficial qualities of the Dragon are said to be: Energetic. Confident. Ambitious. Intelligent. Generous. His popularity is based on a reputation for attracting good luck and prosperity.

However, his darker, more arrogant characteristics are: Unstable. Intolerant. Lack of Persistence and Unrealistic.

A Dragon personality can be generous to a fault, intelligent to the point of intolerance and so ambitiously confident that they can move forward too fast and forcefully, causing destruction for those around them. At best, this tendency seems rude and at worst, forcing and pushing things through often causes nasty karmic backlashes, especially in the New Paradigm.

The Dragon archetype can guard very unrealistic ideals that it will then hold against itself. It’s very sensitive to pain and will unexpectedly lash out vigorously when hurt or under attack. Respect is an important virtue. Establishing common sense and stable limitations will help restrain his more extreme qualities.

Yes. The male, vital Dragon is a very different energy to operate under in contrast to his gentle predecessor, the feminine rabbit!

With these generalities in mind, what do you think you will need to do differently to work with this energy?

What is the message from this Archetypal Animal?

Are there any warnings? Opportunities?

Is there something specific you could ask about that would be beneficial?

What would you need to do to make friends with him?

 

As you contemplate the answers you’ve gotten through your intuition, reinforce your ability to communicate and manifest with the generative energy of the New Paradigm and communicate what’s most important for you to remember.

 

Now that you’ve gained this new perspective and awareness about the Lunar New Year, put your feet firmly on the ground and place your palms on the inside of your knees. Let the symbol help you spin out discordant energies so you can get grounded and bring clarity into the New Year.

“I am grounding with an awareness of the new energies.” 

“I ground in the New Paradigm in accordance with my highest good.”

Congratulations! You may want to get up and move around to integrate this new information and the insights that you’ve opened up to.

REFORMING Your Life: What Did You Learn?

Rheanni Lightwater - What Did You Learn?
Rheanni Lightwater

Transformation Game - What did you learn?We are all being challenged to contemplate and REFORM certain aspects of our lives and create a new path forward.

Can we effectively let go of the old paradigm based on greed, fear and extremism while we intentionally move into a New Paradigm based on co-operation, equality and balanced prosperity?

What Did You Learn?

Kuan Yin has been helping us to transition through a variety of readings, games and Power Circles since 2009. Her advice springs from the I Ching, an ancient book of divination that follows the flow of the cosmos.

The Great Conjunction on Winter Solstice 2020 marked the official start of what some call the Aquarian Age. Kuan Yin simply refers to it as a New Paradigm based on the Common Good. Her guidance for this game comes from Hexagram #21 REFORM:

“Know what you want, know what makes you feel good about your Self, know what brings you into harmony with others. These are your guidelines and principles. Other factors that assume control of your behavior or your health or that create inner discord are the obstacles that must be overcome. Be firm, unemotional, gentle, and clear in annihilating them and thereby reforming your Self and your environment.” ~The I Ching Workbook, R.L Wing

To help you better connect with her assistance, Kuan Yin uses the Intuitive Learning Circles to communicate through meditation, positive affirmations and visualization.

Mind Body IntegrationMind Body Integration

For best results playing a Transformation Game, look at each Circle both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.

Kuan Yin’s I Ching Readings and Transformation Games can help you to identify problems, change your focus to positive solutions, ground yourself and get in the present. Simply relax and gaze at the Circles while CONTEMPLATING Kuan Yins words. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek.


What Did You Learn? 

Truth Mandala

Often our need to be right keeps us from learning what we need to know about difficult situations. The intent of this game has two aspects:

  • How can we learn from our mistakes, missteps and miscommunications?
  • How can we be kind to ourselves and come up with real solutions to follow through on that will help things go better as we move forward?

First, get out some paper and something to write or draw with. Give yourself permission to draw or color during this exercise. Notes to yourself don’t have to be linear!

Next, choose an experience that you know you need help with and are willing to look at honestly. Examples might be: What did I learn in the decade between from 2012 and 2022? During the pandemic? In my previous relationship? In how I handle conflict at work? You can make your inquiry as specific or general as you like. Make a note or image of what this inquiry is about.

Then, let’s agree that your responses are for you and that you don’t have to share them with anyone else, unless you want to. This game is for you!


Soul Guidance

Relax into this symbol and ask for general intuitive information about your situation from Old Sol with these questions. 

“What do I need to know about this? What would be helpful?”

What Did You Learn?

“Is something missing?   Is something lost?
Do I need to let go of something?

Quickly make a note of any answers that come up. You don’t need to understand at this point. Just write down any answers that come to you.
You may want to get additional help from Gifts from the Rainforest. If so, ask for a number between 1 and 58 and follow the instructions for accessing intuition.

 

Sometimes our experiences can be pretty rough, yet somehow we make it through. How do we know what worked and what didn’t?

This energy clearing is designed to help you relax and look back at what you’ve learned about a significant life event, now that you can be more objective…

1. Begin by taking a few deep breaths. It’s possible that your experience and the transition coming out of it has been stressful and you still may be feeling it. Use this Circle to help you relax and release some of that tension. Releasing tension can do a lot to prevent or relieve many symptoms of ptsd.

Did this experience contain a lot of conflict, anxiety or frustration for you? Did you feel a lot of judgement or fear? Are you concerned that you might return to certain energies and attitudes that were prevalent then?

Condor

If so, relax and imagine that the lines in this first Circle are softening and melting the tension away. Let your shoulders drop and your jaw unclench. Every time you take a deep breath, that feeling loosens up. Take all the time you need with this.


Mind Body IntegrationMind Body Integration

For best results playing a Transformation Game, look at each Circle both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.


 

2. Imagine you can open the doors and windows and get a breath of fresh air. It’s been pretty musty in there!

Emotional Calm

Continue breathing and if you can, imagine you can actually relax the tension in the space around you. Go ahead and move around or stretch if you need to.

 

3. Let your senses come back into balance. Some of them may have gotten turned up too high. Some may have shut down completely. You can adjust the volume now.

You might imagine that you’re lying next to a beautiful lake or river, enjoying a gentle breeze, with the sunlight dancing on the water. How refreshing!

Once you’ve taken this time to refresh yourself, notice how different the energy feels now rather than how it did just a few minutes ago. You can let go of all that chaos now.

 

4. Okay. Now we’re ready to dive in with the main question:

What did you learn from _____________________?

Use this Circle to gather pertinent information from your unconscious mind about that experience.

 

5. What did you learn about yourself and how you react?

Bring your attention to your solar plexus area, the place where your instinctual awareness is centered and transmits important information about your needs and how you do your best to meet them.

Utilize this Soul Star Chakra Key to clear out and release toxic energies that may have accumulated in this energy center.

 

6. Kuan Yin wants to know: What do you still need to learn?

Is there anything unresolved? What would you like to have happen going forward?

What Did You Learn? Follow Your Heart

Let this Reiki Chakra Key strengthen your Heart and bring truly beneficial lessons into greater awareness and balance.

Continue to breathe until you feel the energy there can radiate out, like a beautiful star!

 

7. Is there still a CONFLICT left over from that experience? If so, is it your conflict or someone else’s?

How might you handle conflict differently now?

Is there any DANGER left over from that experience? Is there something that needs to be handled around that?

What have you learned about safety, responsibility, boundaries, freedom, etc? Take each specific concern one at a time.

What do they mean to you now that’s different from what it was during that experience? Gather up all that unconscious information so that you can make appropriate changes!

 

8. What did you learned about fear or anxiety and how you handle it?

What did you learn about protecting yourself?

 

9. Did you internalize a lot of things? If so, how did you handle that? What did you learn about that?

If you didn’t take things too personally, what do you think was the secret to your success?

 

10. What did you learn about taking good care of yourself?
What became apparent?
What was the area of most personal growth for you?

Plant Spirits

Would you like to integrate any benefits you learned about those things?
What are your priorities after all of this? What matters the most?

 

11. Do you feel that any changes happened that affected your sense of identity and purpose?

What wisdom does your Soul want you to take with you about that?

 

12. What did you learn about nourishing yourself? What did you change in regard to that? Is it still serving you now? Do you need time to digest and integrate what you learned?

Are you tapping into beneficial nourishment now?

 

13. Are there parts of you that are still caught up in what happened?

If so, see if you can gently and patiently pull your energy back from that experience.

 

14. Do you have any objects in your environment that are keeping you unconsciously connected to that period of time?

Is there any room or part of the building(s) that feels blocked, dead or unable to ground in the New Paradigm?

 

15. Are there any new decisions you would like to make as a result of what you learned?

Llama

What would you like to decide differently about dealing with change? How about taking care of others? What have you decided about standing up for yourself and maintaining healthy boundaries? How will you now deal with deception, neglect or misuse of authority?

 

16. What new agreements or intentions do you need to make after that experience?

What new intentions do you want to make about dealing with change? How about taking care of others? What new intentions do you need to make about balanced prosperity? What about standing up for yourself and maintaining healthy boundaries? What are your intentions about dealing with deception, neglect or misuse of authority?

 

17. Let yourself relax for a few minutes while you get centered and find a strong connection in your heart center to empower the positive changes you would like to make.

What Did You Learn?

Ask your Soul to help you integrate all that you’ve learned and use it to empower your highest good as you move into this next phase of your life.

“I empower the wisdom I’ve gained from this experience.”

 

18. What is the very best thing you can do to help yourself in the here and now?

 

19. Take a moment to close down any drains from that period of time that are affecting your energy, your business, your health and your happiness.

 

20. To finish this game, gaze at this last symbol and consciously close any harmful or chaotic energy channels that may still be open from your experience of that time.

“I close down all harmful energy channels.”

Be sure to do that both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body.

You’ll know that the harmful channels are closed when the emotional chaos and mental chatter stops. Once that happens, gently and patiently acknowledge your new relationship with generative life flow that exists now to support you.

“I allow myself to receive generative life force.”

 

Yes. Sometimes our experiences can be pretty rough. Congratulations on all that you’ve learned from it!

Intentions and Feng Shui

Feng Shui Intentions for Prosperity

Whenever conditions in our environment change, it follows that intentions and Feng Shui will need to change as well.

For years, Kuan Yin has advised me to stay away from making intentions frivolously or to ask for so many new things that I unwittingly create chaos, conflict and/or confusion. Happily, I’ve chosen to listen and take the time to create that habit in myself. Now that the New Paradigm is operating out of the flow of Air, rather than Water, many, many, many conditions have changed and will continue to at a far quicker pace than they ever have before.

So, whenever I set intentions for the Feng Shui in my home or office, I always ask for and follow simple, down to earth guidance from the most dependable Source I know, Kuan Yin.

As always, her advice is direct and to the point.

Kuan Yin's Transformation Games - Intentions and Feng Shui

“In the I Ching Hexagram #21 REFORM there are several points that will help as we explore what needs to happen in our intentions and Feng Shui:

‘The time calls for energetic REFORM… Either an inferior person who is working against you or a situation that has developed at cross purposes to your life is interfering with the attainment of your aims. These obstacles must be sought out, reformed, and thereby eliminated. Success will come through the enforcement of laws and the administering of justice. There is neither possibility of compromise nor hope that the problem will miraculously vanish. It cannot be rationalized or ignored, and you cannot maneuver around it. It is a tangible, real, and self generating interference in your life, and must be severely reformed before it causes any permanent damage to you…

… Personal relationships without defined guidelines, reasonable expectations, reciprocal considerations and clear plans for the future are now in danger of dissolving into the chaos being generated by the current situation. Misunderstandings and confusions will become more common unless firm, clear headed action is taken to dispense with whatever you perceive to be an obstacle to union. There are times to avoid confrontation, to sublimate deep feelings, or to retreat and await a more opportune moment for action. This is not one of those times. Energetic REFORM will bring favorable results.

There could not be a more appropriate time to examine your character and determine the extent to which any delusions, rationalizations, or habits have usurped control of your judgement. Know what you want, know what makes you feel good about your Self, know what brings you into harmony with others. These are your guidelines and principles. Other factors that assume control of your behavior or your health or that create inner discord are the obstacles that must be overcome. Be firm, unemotional, gentle, and clear in annihilating them and thereby reforming your Self and your environment.’  ~The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

 

To help you get a grasp on the larger picture, you may want to know about other important environmental changes before you continue with the game…


Intentions and Feng Shui

Part I: Calm Down and Get Focused ~

These selected Intuitive Learning Circles will help you focus and re-organize your intentions. Simply gaze softly at the Circles while you contemplate the question or positive affirmations that go with each one.

Perception

Your senses may have gotten all knocked out of balance.  

Gaze softly at the Circle and take a moment to consciously gather up all your senses. Bring them into balance so that you can perceive things more clearly.  Imagine you can adjust the volume for seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting and smelling the things that are in your immediate surroundings.

 

When we’re adjusting to this new energy, the chakras and other subtle energy systems may start running in reverse or shut down entirely. Relax and let this symbol help you make corrections.

Repair any reversals, holes or blockages affecting your energy system.

Take all the time you need to let your energy smooth out.

 

Your intuition may need balancing because of elevated emotions.

Use this Circle to help you get your senses and intuition focused to the right level so you can perceive things correctly, which helps with emotions.

Some senses may be turned up too high and others too low.

You can adjust them now like the volume on a radio dial – just right!

Centering

Turn your attention inward first, to be sure that you are fully balanced, present and clear…

Begin by making sure that you are internally balanced. Your Essential Self is properly placed in an open and balanced Solar Plexus Chakra located where the ribs go up in the front of your body…

“My Solar Plexus Chakra is open and balanced.”

“I reintegrate my Essential Self into its proper home.”

Take all the time you need. With so many changes going on, it’s very possible that your Essential Self has gotten displaced or disoriented.

Plus, there could be a lot of old, even non-existent connections there that need to be expelled.

If the energy around your solar plexus feels stuck or heavy, use this chart to help you gently clear them out.

“I release and clear out toxins, interference and attachments that are harmful to me under the current conditions.”

 

Grounding

Without being firmly positioned in the “home base” of your solar plexus, it’s very difficult to access the clarity and stability we need in these times. Use this affirmation:

“I am grounded and connected in my solar plexus.”

“I am upright and facing forward.”

“I make firm connections with what I need for stability.”

 

Heart Healing

This has been a very difficult time and our hearts are having to deal with a tremendous amount of grief and loss. Give yourself some time with this Reiki Chakra Key to reconnect and repair your Fourth or Heart Chakra.

 

Take a few minutes to help the energy clear even more with this Soul Star for the Heart Chakra. Breathe and relax until you sense positive energy radiating out.

 

Finish this section off by making sure that your energy isn’t being drained. Use Fly Medicine from Gifts from the Rainforest to seal the drains like old plumbing lines that need to be deconstructed and closed down completely.

After going through this, you may have a new appreciation for how much stress you’ve been feeling. Be sure to fill those places with Love and courage.

As you form your new intentions for your environment, be sure to take your physical and mental wellbeing into account.

 


Part II: Now You’re Ready to Assess Your Feng Shui ~

Turn your attention to your immediate environment. Allow the Circles and their questions to help you get clear information…

1. Slow down and get to the Source of what really needs to happen.

“I turn inward and connect with my Source. I learn to utilize the beneficial and generative flow of Air in my environment … landscaping, bedroom, office, etc.”

 

2. Use this Circle to help you focus in on your Feng Shui project. What, if anything, has recently changed in your environment? How have your circumstances changed?

You may want to make a list. 

 

3. Is there a general improvement, decline or is it just changing? 

Is there conflict? Chaos? Contradiction? Crisis?

Can you tell what might help? Just make notes for now.

 

4. Are there any agreements or decisions you need to reorganize?

 

 

5. Are there old, out of date intentions that need to be cleared out of your mindset?

If there are, imagine that you can clear any harmful intentions out of your prayer pipe! If there are collective societal intentions, clean them out as well and send them to the Light.

 

6. Now that you’ve adjusted your awareness, use this symbol to help you connect with the true meaning of prosperity and how it can be manifested.

“I connect to the abundance of balanced prosperity.”
“I engage with my true nature and make the necessary changes to create my highest good.”

Balanced Prosperity

As you go through the next section of this exercise, it’s good to keep the feng shui principle in mind about finding twelve objects you can move or rearrange in some way at the change of every season or during other times of significant change. For example, are there any elements to adjust, let go of or bring in?
Does an object, piece of art or need to be added, removed or re-arranged?

 

7. What is the best way to nurture and care for yourself now? Can you turn that into an intention to use for your entire environment?

Ask for a life affirming experience that’s general enough to allow positive change to occur and that makes sense under your current circumstances. That part is especially important, since we know the changes we’re going through are liable to continue for some time.

Old Soul

If you would like to utilize the assistance that’s available through Gifts from the Rainforest, this would be a good time to ask Mapacho Medicine for some guidance. Read about the medicine and use the Circle to help you gather up conscious and unconscious information that will help you get to the SOURCE or what’s needed. Then, return here to continue the Game.

 

8. Is there any protection that you need to add? If so, can you tell what might help and where it would be best placed?

See if you can add that information to your intention.

 

9. Ask for a team of Divine Help to assist you as you set up your space around your new intention.

 

Chinese Zodiac: 

This is the Year of the Yin Water Rabbit.

Rabbit

The beneficial qualities of the Rabbit are said to be: Docile. Fertile. Tender. Quiet. Gentle. Cautious. Considerate. Her fertility and connection with women’s health is legendary, although whether you consider that beneficial or not is entirely up to you!

Her more challenging qualities are liable to be: Irresolute. Skittish. Stubborn. Timid. Escapist.  Plus, the rabbit is considered by many to be a trickster, although her tricks are more likely to be along the lines of prank and small irritations, rather than serious deceptions.

With these generalities in mind, what do you gather you need to do differently to work with this energy? What is the message from this Archetypal Animal? Are there any warnings? Opportunities?
Is there something specific I could ask about that would be beneficial?
What would you need to do to make friends with her?

 

 

10. Gather up your self-healing abilities and instinctual nature. What message do you get from your own Power Animal? 


Are there any actions that should be taken?
Any that are best to avoid?
What about your Chinese Zodiac Animal?
Make sure that each of your guide are present and introduced to each other.

 

11. Now that you’ve engaged a cooperative team, what changes in your environment do you need to make to support your new intention? The changes could be inside or outside.

How might you bring light and balanced prosperity into your environment?”

Make a list of the inspiration that comes and you’re off to a good start!

Over the next few days, set up the energy in your environment to organize around your new intention. Remember to mindfully set the intention in your crystals and/or sacred objects and place them as you’re guided.

 

 

12. Finally, confirm that you’re 100% present. Open and close your hands. Notice the time, date and where you are.

“I am 100% in present time.”

 

Congratulations! You now have information that will help to prepare you for the challenging times ahead.


Next Steps

Once you’ve set your intention in the space, pay attention to what you start to attract. If you start attracting chaos, conflict or confusion, know that you need to reassess your intention and reorganize it.

Don’t waste your time beating yourself up for having made a mistake or not doing it “perfectly.” After all, this is a whole new energy we’re in. We’re at the very beginning of one Age, while the other is gone. Mistakes are going to happen! Just get back up, clear your mind and be willing to let go of your assumptions about how you thought things were going to be.

If you would like more in depth help for setting up your space, contact Rheanni.

Come From a Grounded Place

How to ADAPT and Come From a Grounded Place in the New Paradigm ~

Many of us are aware that how we experience our environment has a lot to do with how well we’re feeling and how easy or difficult it is to come from a grounded place. That’s especially so when we need to communicate or move forward in a genuinely productive way! The energy of the Cosmos has changed radically and we are being called to ADAPT to a New Paradigm based on common ground.

The purpose of this Mind Exercise is to activate the beneficial energies of the New Paradigm in your environment. Connecting with these energies will help you organize effectively and from a grounded place.

If you’ve noticed any of the following situations in your environment, try this exercise from Navigating Compassion Fatigue, an online resource from our Soul Oriented Solutions series –

SOS - Soul Oriented Solutions
SOS – Soul Oriented Solutions

If you feel like you or your environment are:

  • Ungrounded or scattered
  • Overwhelmed by too much stuff
  • Disorganized and confused
  • Unstable, unsafe or explosive
  • Juggling too many things
  • Unproductive – going around in circles
  • A magnet attracting negative energies.

Directions: Confirm this is the best formula for you with the SOS Symbol.

Find a quiet place to sit in the center of your space, where you won’t be disturbed for about twenty minutes. Make sure both of your feet are firmly planted on the floor and that the soles of your shoes wouldn’t prevent you from grounding well.

Begin by meditating on this symbol that will help you organize your mind around the structure for Creating Common Ground.

Come from a Grounded Place

Then, go through the exercise by reading each message and then gazing gently at the Circle or chart that goes with it for a minute or so. A longer or shorter time may be necessary. Let yourself breathe and relax as much as possible. Don’t worry if the images move around or change in any way. That just means the Circles are working to help you and your environment to come into balance with each other and ground.

Some emotions may come up and when that happens always visualize the heaviness moving up, out and towards the Light.

You may intuitively feel that an object in the space should be moved or removed completely. Trust your instincts. Give yourself permission to let go of anything that could keep you stuck in the old paradigm.


Mind Body Integration

Mind Body Integration - Self-care for lossFor best results, look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of your body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.

Feel free to cross or uncross your arms whenever you intuitively feel you need to!


It helps to know that there are new channels of life force available in the New Paradigm that will help us ADAPT.

Come From a Grounded Place
Divine Protection

Keep this symbol handy to help you open up to generative life force and close down life-destructive energy channels from the past. That integration also includes new communication channels that will help us connect with each other in far more life affirming ways.

By contemplating the symbol, you’ll find that you’ll be able to intentionally close down harmful channels and open up to the generative life force (chi) that we look for in Feng Shui.

In Chinese, Feng Shui means “wind water”. These are the two elements that move energy for creating life when they’re in balance. When they’re out of balance, they can create all kinds of destructive energy patterns – sudden reversals, poltergeists, collapses in protection and stagnation – just to name a few. 

Needless to say, transitioning out of the energy channels of the Piscean Age (water) into the new energy channels of the Aquarian Age (air) has been causing quite a bit of instability for everyone.

The bottom line is – the sooner we can come from a grounded place in the New Paradigm based on common ground, the better!

If you need help getting your space grounded, you’re welcome to connect with Rheanni Lightwater for Feng Shui consulting. You can share some of the experiences you’re having and what you’re noticing about your space. Getting a Feng Shui perspective on your situation could be very useful and help you to make the best decisions about your space and organize your life in a way that will move you forward.

Once you’ve finished going through the entire exercise, take yourself for a gentle walk in nature or have a soak in a hot bath with Epsom salts or Sea Salt. It’s important to make sure that you’ve cleansed yourself.


Connection
  1. Begin by relaxing while you softly gaze at this Reiki Chakra Key for your Life Path Chakras, located on either side of your Crown Chakra at the top of your head. Use the following affirmation:

“I choose to relax and open up to my true potential.”

 

Presence 

2. Take some more time to breathe deeply.
 Pay special attention to those places in your body where you’re feeling pain or discomfort. 
Consciously send your breath to those places and let them relax.
Stretch if you need to. Open and close your hands. Notice the time and the space around you.

“I bring myself into the present in the New Paradigm.”

Mind Body IntegrationScroll back up to Divine Protection and take a few moments to consciously close down any harmful energy channels in your body or your space.

Do it both crossed and uncrossed over the center line of your body.

 

Receptivity

3. Ask for peace and harmony to come into your heart and awareness.

Consciously move your energy out of your head and pull it down into your heart and solar plexus area.

Old Soul

Once you feel the shift, close down harmful energy channels again. The more relaxed you are, the better this works.

 

Intuition

4. Connect with your instinctual nature.
Use the Dragonfly Circle to help you tune into your gut instincts so that you can reconnect and improve your relationship with your environment.

“I reconnect with my natural instincts and relationship to my environment.”

Divine Protection

Do you get instinctual messages or intuitive hits about certain areas in the space around you?
Could there be an object that’s holding old energy or keeping you grounded in past unhappiness?

If there is, take a moment to move it now and clear the area with Divine Protection.

 

Clear Intention

5. Let go of the need to be perfect, having to sacrifice or be everything for everyone. Include intentions that were helpful at one time and are no longer useful.
Could you be holding onto something that doesn’t belong to you or leaving yourself open to a problem that’s not yours to fix?
You are responsible for yourself and only your part of the situation. What is your part?

What makes sense to do? What would be genuinely helpful in this situation?
Resolve to let any misguided intentions go, like old smoke disappearing into the Light.

 

Nourishment

6. Make sure that you’re accessing the most beneficial energies to support you and your environment.
You may notice that some directions hold more auspicious energies for you than others.

Shut down any energy channels that are irrelevant or distracting you with Divine Protection.

 

Empowerment

7. To ground in the New Paradigm effectively, you need a strong connection to your spiritual Source. You need to be able to take good care of yourself and willing to ask for help. Bring your attention back to your heart and listen to it beating – nice and steady. Affirm to yourself:

“I exist and am empowered through the connection in my Heart.”

“I take good care of myself and am willing to ask for help.”

“I connect with my environment through Joy and Gratitude.”

Take all the time you need with this.

 

Disappointment

8. Pull your energy back and out of disappointing experiences.
Use this Circle to help you stop tapping into harmful or destructive energies that don’t support you and that bring chaos into your environment.

Shut down any remaining energy channels that are irrelevant or distracting you with Divine Protection.

 

Coherence

9. It’s time to focus your energy on getting grounded. When are grounded, you are not only taking good care of yourself, you also have a positive effect on those around you.

“I pull myself together and get grounded in the New Paradigm.”

 

Self-care

10. Is there anything else you need to do to help yourself?
Does anything else need to happen in your environment so you can come from a grounded place?

Make a list so you can remember.

 

Change

11. Do you have old agreements or assumptions you need to change? You can find them by examining your life and asking yourself:

“What’s been working and what hasn’t been working?”

Are you willing to let go of things that are not working? Release any agreements to hold on.
“I’m willing and able to let go and make the changes necessary for me now.”

 

Realization

12. Keep looking at the Circle while you relax and think of something that you love very much.

Have you been unknowingly jeopardizing things that matter to you?
If you have, what can you do to set it right?
Make note of the ideas that come to you.

 

Clean Up

13. Use Rat’s Circle to sweep any confusion or clutter out of your mind and send the debris up to the Light. In your mind’s eye, sweep it all away!
Then close the doors behind you that let in all that garbage.

Notice how much better your body feels when your mind gets clear.
Make note of ideas that come to you about how you might remove the clutter out of your environment.

 

REDIRECT

14. Imagine that your Spirit can gently take you by your heart and head. Let it turn you around – toward the direction of your highest good.

Allow an uplifting and generative flow of life affirming energy to circulate through your body.

 

DECISION

15. Use this Circle to help you close the pathways in your mind that would lead you into ungrounded and confusing places.

“All holes are sealed and healed.”

“I follow the guidance of my Soul.”

You probably feel much clearer now.

 

Inner Guidance

16. Take some deep breaths and move your body around again. Let your shoulders drop. Listen to that calm, gentle voice that comes from your heart. What is it telling you?

Old Soul

 

New BeginningS

17. Allow a generative energy to begin in your solar plexus. Feel it moving up into your heart and let it fill up your entire body – all the way to your fingertips. You are creating a new template for a new beginning.

 

Divine Protection

18. Finish by gazing at this symbol to confirm your connection with the new and beneficial energies of the New Paradigm.

“My mind and body are open and clear to receive generative life force.”

“All harmful energy channels have been closed down.”

Come from a Grounded Place

 “Divine Protection fills my environment completely in all directions – including above and below.” 

Remember that the need to unify in common ground is real! The changes are taking place over time and you will likely need to do this exercise repeatedly. Take yourself for a gentle walk in nature or have a soak in a hot bath with Epsom/Sea Salts to cleanse yourself.

Changes in Your Environment – Feng Shui Tips

Feng Shui Tips for Handling Recent Changes in Your Environment:

Rheanni Lightwater

When going through a radical change, it’s a great help to clean out certain areas of our homes and keep an eye on how well the energy is moving. While we’re rearranging things, we can reorganize our intentions to adapt to the changes in our environment and circumstances. When we take the time to do that, we’re allowing a physical and psychological space to open up for new things to come in and help us adjust both inwardly and outwardly.

Changes in Your Environment - Crystal CleansingFor example, I have a lot of crystals and a prayer pipe that I consider sacred. Early on in my Feng Shui practice, I got a strong message that I need to regularly clear out my pipe, cleanse those crystals and rearrange other significant objects to accommodate the changes in the I Ching flow. Why is that so important?

— Because crystals, prayer containers and other significant personal objects can hold onto a great deal of energy and old intentions.

In order to keep my mind and energy flexible, I don’t want to be held back by the gravity of those old energies, including those that marked the end of the Piscean Age. Since the Winter Equinox of 2022, the nature of chi’ or life force flowing through the Tao has changed to an Air based flow (Aquarius) rather than the previous Water based flow.

Let this symbol help you make the adjustment needed.

“I close down all harmful energy channels from the old paradigm.”

Divine Protection for Difficult Beginnings
Divine Protection in the New Paradigm

“I allow my mind and body to acclimate to this lighter, quicker life force.”
“I learn to receive generative life force and use it to communicate with  my environment.”

 

 

Also, I don’t want to be blocked by old intentions and outdated agreements that aren’t relevant anymore. They only perpetuate inner conflict or confusion, especially now that we’re obviously in a very different space!

For example, when the pandemic started, I got the strong guidance to “change with the changes and still stay grounded.” In the early summer of 2020, my inner guidance was to “bring light and balanced prosperity into my mindset and environment.” at the Winter Solstice I was guided to pray for “safe transition into the New Paradigm”. Now my intention is “I am firmly grounded in the New Paradigm and have Divine Protection.” These are pretty big changes, and I’m sure there will be many more to come!

Big changes in your environment can be supported with the help of Reiki, strong intention and clear crystals.

To cleanse crystals, I gather them up from around my house and property and then place them in a bowl of water mixed with sea salt. Around the full moon, I’m guided to set them outside for a day or two to cleanse. That way, they will get really clear through an infusion of both Sun and Moon light. Then, I set a new strong and focused intention with those crystals, based on what is needed now.

Notice that I didn’t say, “please keep the coronavirus away,” or “please be sure that civil war doesn’t break out.” If I were to set intentions based on things I don’t want to happen, my whole mindset would start to unconsciously fixate on all the uncertainty and fear that these things attract. To make things even worse, the energy in my environment should start to organize around the fixation. That’s exactly opposite of what I want!

I also don’t want to make intentions frivolously or ask for so many new things that I unwittingly create chaos, conflict and confusion.

So, when I set intentions in turbulent times, I calm myself down first. Once the shock is abated and my mind is clear of anxiety, I ask for a life affirming experience that’s general enough to allow positive change to occur and that makes sense under my current circumstances. That part is especially important since we know the changes we’re going through are liable to continue for some time. Then, I set up the energy in my living space to organize around the new intention by mindfully placing the crystals and/or sacred objects as I’m guided.

Once I’ve set my intention in the space, I pay attention to what I start to attract.  If I start attracting chaos, conflict or confusion, I know that I need to reassess my intention and reorganize it.

I don’t waste my time beating myself up for having made a mistake or not doing it “perfectly”. After all, this is a whole new energy we’re in. We’re at the very beginning of one Age, while the other has departed entirely! It’s going to take a while for our minds to adjust. Mistakes are going to happen. Just get back up, clear your mind and be willing to let go of your assumptions about how you thought things were going to be.

If you’re interested in this process of reassessing and reorganizing your intention, You might be interested in an extra intuitive exercise I’ve put together.
