Future Pacing and Hypnotherapy

Future Pacing for Excellence

Future pacing is an extra-intuitive activity that isn’t required, but can really help you excel by anchoring positive outcomes into your Learning Mind…

Rheanni Lightwater - Hypnotherapy and Future PacingIn our hypnotherapy and energy medicine classes, we talk about the importance of future pacing. What is that?

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.

Start Future Pacing by Getting Calm and Relaxed

Use River Medicine to relax and adjust the volume on your senses.

Future Pacing with River MedicineRemember that when your senses are out of balance, it’s easy to get lost and fall out of your natural flow. 

River Medicine beckons us to calm down and flow with the river of life. When we allow this experience, we can hear the truth of the heart and Soul more clearly.

One way to do that is to gaze softly at the Circle and imagine that you’re floating on a calm, benevolent body of water. Take the time to breathe deeply. Once you feel calmer, you’re ready to open your senses to new solutions and gifts. 

Gently remind yourself about your objective:
“What am I proposing to do?”
Then, follow up with,
“If I follow the course of that action, what’s most likely to happen?”

Once you feel more relaxed and calm, use this sequence of Intuitive Learning Circles and positive affirmations to help you future pace with the very best qualities to follow through on what you’ve learned. 

Future Pacing from Intuitive Learning in the New Paradigm


Use this affirmation to recalibrate:

“I willingly release harmful ingredients and access beneficial ingredients*.”

*“Ingredients” include energies, nourishment, guidance, support, etc. Anything that goes into the creation of your experience.

Future Pacing with The Essential HumanIf you need to use the symbols and positive affirmations from The Essential Human to help you access the very best qualities to nurture your intuitive talents, this is a good time to do it.

Choose from numbers 1 – 42 with the same affirmation:

“I willingly release harmful ingredients and access beneficial ingredients.”


Here are a couple of examples of how you might do that. The first line is about what you want to let go of or close the door on:
“I release harmful, outdated or extreme thinking patterns.”

The second line is about what you want to open up to:
“I now make a commitment to cultivate beneficial thoughts that come from my Soul.”


You might also want to confirm that all parts of you know to utilize the beneficial flow of chi’ or life force that’s available in the New Paradigm.

“I project the idea of me using this generative energy out into the future – helping me to manifest my objective successfully in the New Paradigm.”


Set Yourself Up for Success

Imagine that you can access your seeds of karma that will help you actualize your objective. Gather the seeds of your good deeds in the center, blank area of this Circle.

“I access my beneficial karma for actualizing balanced and helpful _________.”

“I plant new karmic seeds for the conditions I need to be happier, healthier and to actualize my heartfelt objectives.” 


Make sure you plant them in your personal garden that lives in your heart.

“I plant beneficial seeds in my garden and ask for blessings in accordance with the highest good. I am securely included in the equation.”

If your garden needs a little tending – weeding, watering, re-organizing, etc. -this is a good time to see it happening in your mind’s eye.


Clear Obstructions

Let go of any harmful or inappropriate energies or mental/emotional patterns that no longer serve you. Release them to the Light to be set free and purified.

“I gather destructive patterns or energies and release them to the Light.
I dissolve my connection to them, so that they may be set free and purified.”

Please note: Never send pain or harmful energies into the Earth to be neutralized, she already has too much to handle now. Use the Earth for planting seeds of life, health and happiness – not death, illness and unhappiness!

Visualize any hidden channels or sewage pipes for negative energies collapsing in on themselves.

“Old channels of ______________ are collapsing.”


Close all holes or leaks that lead back to illness, suffering or disappointment.

“All holes are sealed and healed.”
“I follow the direction of my Soul’s protection.”


Now you’re ready for your Soul to connect you with the grail of gratitude located in your heart center / personal garden and use it to empower your highest good.

“I use my Soul’s divine connection to nourish what’s in my highest good.”

“I am empowered to learn how I can strengthen ________ and _________.”


Being grounded helps you bring what you’ve learned “down to Earth” so you can increase productivity and actualize your objective. Get yourself grounded in the New Paradigm before you complete this process.

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 present and grounded in the New Paradigm.”


Future Pacing – Projecting Success into the Future

Now you’re ready to tune into the Center of your being. Go within and ask your heart:

How will it feel to actualize my objective in the future?

What about later today or tomorrow?
A month from now?
How does it feel a year from now?


The mind intuitively appreciates closure. Finish it all up now by sealing and healing any holes that lead back to old, harmful pathways of suffering.

“All holes are sealed and healed.”
“I follow the direction of my Soul’s intended path.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing


You can thank yourself for taking the time today to learn how Future Pacing can accelerate your learning and ability to manifest your objective in the New Paradigm – a gift that will surely keep on giving!

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

The Path Forward – Animal Totems

Reforming the Path Forward Into the New Paradigm

Your Soul's Path ForwardThis is a Transformation Game that includes the activation of the Four Elements traditionally accessed for manifestation (Fire, Air, Earth, Water) and an inquiry with your Soul about how to properly use them with your true nature to form a joyful path moving forward.

  • Access the karma you need
  • Put your Soul in charge
  • Clear projections and family stress
  • Activate your personal dream and get initial guidance for the upcoming year.


Animal Totem Tracks - Yellow Bar


Phase One: Help for Navigating the New Paradigm

We are all being challenged to REFORM certain aspects of our lives and create a new path forward. What do we need to do to intentionally manifest in the New Paradigm that we’re now living in? How can we create common ground based on co-operation, equality and balanced prosperity?

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 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 main guidance to carry with us 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

Before we begin, let’s make sure that we’re using the generative life force of the New Paradigm to facilitate the process:

“I am flexible and open to receive generative life force.”

“I use Divine Protection to facilitate my path forward.”

Feel free to refer to this symbol whenever you get stuck or feel the need to breathe.

Release Hidden Agreements with Old Ways of Handling Life Force

Change your agreements to help facilitate the changes needed:

“I renegotiate how I utilize the behavior of the Elements of Water and Air in accordance with the highest good.”

“I am flexible and adapt to the energy flow of Air.”

“I understand that the movement of Air is lighter and quicker.
I can move toxic energy up and release it to the Light much easier.”

Phase Two: Inquiry and Activation of the Four Elements.



1 – Earth. Gaze softly at the Soul Prayer Chart for Earth in the picture below for a few moments and relax while you contemplate the question posed. Let the energy of each Circle calm down before you move on to the next step.

“I call on the Element of Earth.”

“What new beginning would I like to bring into being?”

The Path Forward - Tomorrow
You can call more than one beginning into being – just be sure that they’re related to one another and aligned (we don’t want to bring contradictory situations into being)


“What seeds would I need to plant for this to happen?”

“What conditions would be needed for them to thrive?”

“I would need ___________, __________ and ________________.”
Make notes to help you keep track of the things you’re going to need.


2 – Water. Do the same thing with this Soul Prayer Chart for Water while you gather up information about what kind of emotional support you need or need to work through.

“How do I feel about creating this new beginning?”

“Am I being led by emotions?”
“What decisions have I made about this situation?”
“What have I decided about myself?”
“Are there any new decisions I would prefer or add?”

“I call on the Element of Water.”

“I am in charge of how I feel in this situation.”

Visualize how you would like to handle any emotions you might encounter.

“How am I perceiving this? Am I accessing turmoil or balance?”

If you’re accessing turmoil, consciously it down and regain balance.

“I perceive my situation clearly.”


3 – Air. Repeat the process with the element of Air – which is also the element of Soul. Use this symbol to access your Soul’s energy signature and clear it of any interference.

“My Soul is in charge of this new beginning.”

“Is there any interference I need to be aware of?”
“Is there anyone else trying to be in charge?”

“I call on the Element of Air.”

“What sort of adjustments might I expect? What will be needed?

Visualize how you would like to use your thoughts, words and decisions.
4 – Fire. Use this Element to help you form a clear intention. Bring yourself into alignment with your Soul’s destiny and direction. Then ask yourself:

“What do I want to experience?”

“How do I want to be guided?”

“Are those creative or destructive uses of Fire?”

“I call on the Element of Fire.”

“What is the truth about what my Soul wants to experience?”


5 – Natural Instincts. Use this Animal Totem to help you pull together your natural instincts and self-healing abilities. Gather them up, both crossed and uncrossed and give them time to percolate into a dream that has real meaning and purpose for you.

“I gather up my natural instincts and use them to help me to create my true path forward.”

If there’s something you’ve been wanting, now is a good time to ask your Essential Self if all parts are on board with creating it.

How about your Power Animal?


6 – Clear Projections. Take a few minutes to check to see if a projection from elsewhere is interfering with your clear vision or intention. Also, make sure that you’re not operating out of a projection of your own making!

Once you’ve cleared them all out, go back to 4 – and ask the questions there again.


7 – Divine Protection. Reinforce your relationship with the new, life affirming energy that’s coming from the Cosmos to help us manifest effectively.

“I have Divine Protection.

All harmful energy channels from the old paradigm are closed down.”

“I am open and clear to receive generative life force.”

8 – Epigenetic Clearing.  Clear family stress and epigenetic tags that have been creating obstacles on your path without your awareness.

Choose corrections from Divine Nature Activated #1 – 73.

“The Path Forward in the New Paradigm is clear.”

If it doesn’t feel clear, what number(s) between 1 – 73 might help you clear it?

Being relaxed is really important for DNA symbols to do their best work.

If you need additional clearing or Future Pacing, this is a good time to do it.

Phase Three: Call For Guidance.

Next, we’re going to call upon Animal Totems from Gifts from the Rainforest to be guides for us as we create a path forward into the New Paradigm.

Together, this is how we can make the best progress on our journey…

9 – Old Sol. Once you feel clear, ask Old Sol which Totem’s guidance you could use right now – Snake, Jaguar, Condor, Llama or Plant Spirits?

“Considering what I would like to bring into being and what I’m going through personally, is there a Totem that would be most helpful to me as a guide?”

Old Soul

Remember to breathe and relax while you contemplate the question.
Which one has the strongest attraction for you?
Snake, Jaguar, Condor, Llama or Plant Spirits?

Wait until you feel a clear choice coming from your heart / solar plexus area. Being centered and trusting your gut is a key element to getting good guidance from your Soul!

Once you have your answer, scroll down to that Totem’s link and check out the Games, Formulas and Exercises that they recommend and are willing to work with you on.

Changes in Your Environment – Feng Shui Tips

Feng Shui Tips for Handling Recent Changes in Your Environment:

Rheanni Lightwater
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.
