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“I release harmful, outdated or extreme thinking patterns.”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!

Clear Your Crown Chakra

When In Search of the Truth: Clear Your Crown Chakra ~

Clear Your Crown Chakra of False ImprintsIt can be hard to keep your mind clear when lies are everywhere. The sheer amount of them can make your head spin and have you doubt your sanity! Luckily, there are ways to detach from the crazy-making and get centered again. This Mind Exercise has been put together to be one of those ways. Simply go through this step by step process and you will be guided to clear your Crown Chakra and strengthen your Soul connection.

Directions: Find a quiet place if possible, where you won’t be disturbed for 20 – 30 minutes. Begin by reading the information and then gazing gently at each Circle that goes with it for approximately two minutes. 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 and that your mind and body are coming into balance. 

Some emotions might come up as well. That also means the Circles are working. If you’re being hard on yourself or afraid you aren’t “doing it right,” give yourself permission to continue relaxing. You could very well be releasing confusion that’s caused you quite a bit of suffering for some time now. Resolve to patiently keep breathing and let it go.

A Series of Divine Connections

The Seventh or Crown Chakra is an energy center that, among many other things, helps us to process self actualization needs like realizing personal potential, self-fulfillment and seeking personal growth or peak experiences. When the Crown Chakra is blocked, it’s easy to get confused and misled by false information.

Use this Reiki Chakra Key to tap into your Crown Chakra at the top of your head. Relax for a minute or two. Does it feel balanced and open? If not, how would you describe it? Clogged? Blocked? Shut down? Disconnected?

Clear Your Crown Chakra
Crown Chakra Key

If you are a Reiki Practitioner, this is a good time to beam Reiki into the Circle.

If you’re not a Reiki Practitioner, simply make the commitment to use natural healing energies that work with Mother Nature, rather than against her or trying to dominate her!

Clearing your Crown Chakra naturally when it’s blocked is one of the most important energetic interventions you can employ to maintain a free and open mind.

Why do I say that?

Because, when the Seventh Chakra is blocked by false imprints and entanglements, a domino effect is created that impairs the Sixth Chakra, also known as “The Third Eye.”

The Third Eye is located in the center of the forehead between the eyebrows and governs our need for spiritual insight and understanding, among many other things. When it’s open and clear, a person can properly “see” and utilize their own intuition and common sense.

Third Eye Chakra Key

If those important mental functions get thrown off, the person becomes more susceptible to delusions and fantasy thinking that emanate from groupthink and herd mentality.

They begin to doubt themselves, become cynical and rely on the opinions of others. This loss of personal power creates a stage that’s set perfectly for conspiracies and cults to come in and take over.

Take a moment and use this Reiki Chakra Key to tap into your Third Eye. How does it feel? Clogged? Cluttered? Chaotic? Confusing?

If you’re experiencing any blockages, it may help to meditate on this sequence that helps connect a person’s Crown Chakra to their Soul Chakra:

The goal is to connect your Crown Chakra to your Soul Chakra located directly above it.

Crown Chakra – Located at Top of Your Head

Soul Star Connection

Soul Chakra
Soul Chakra – Located Just Above Your Head

It may help to scroll back and forth through the sequence several times to establish a strong connection…


Being able clear your Crown Chakra and maintain it requires clear agreements from you to connect directly with your own Soul and Divine Connection – rather than going through someone else’s.

An example of this would be in religious organizations. Many spiritual institutions or philosophies from the old paradigm have taught that we have to go through the priest, guru or spiritual leader to find a connection to the Divine. This is no longer true in the New Paradigm. We each have our own connection. We just need to know how to make that connection and keep it.

Direct Connection to Spiritual Guidance

You may say, “I don’t need to connect with my Divinity through another person or group!” And yet, human beings have been trained for millennia to do exactly that. The conditioning to hand over our personal authority is deeply ingrained and maintained on an unconscious level. Even when we rebel against it, we’re still reacting out of that conditioning. We can’t just snap our fingers and dismiss all that cultural training.

Ask yourself, are you experiencing a direct and clear connection to your spiritual guidance?

A New Way to Relate To Ourselves and Others ~

Think about the contracts or agreements you hold around authority and self-determination: the people, the places and the organizations that have been important to you throughout your life. They could be affecting you in a negative way now.

Is there anyone trying to control me? Am I unknowingly interfering with someone else?

Those agreements may not be over, but they have certainly changed! For example, you could still want to care about a significant person or group, but that doesn’t mean that you want to let them control you or interfere with your thoughts.

Then there are those people who you don’t want to care about, and yet they are always trying to get into your head…

Mind control… brainwashing… herd mentality… it’s enough to drive you crazy! But it doesn’t have to…


Give yourself permission to have healthy boundaries.

Free up your energy with the Circle below by letting go of old, out-dated agreements about control, authority and self-determination.

Release sub-conscious agreements to put up with control and manipulation. See completed debts, vows and resentments burn up like old contracts in a beautiful, violet flame.

“I let go of all Soul Agreements that are harmful or interfere with healthy boundaries or clear spiritual guidance.  
I don’t need to go through others to connect with my Divinity.
I let go of interference with others. 
I allow the necessary changes to take place.”

You may want to release harmful connections with a project, a belief system, a person or an organization that’s no longer serving your needs. They may have even become abusive. Rather than wasting your energy on trying to get revenge, release them by surrendering those Soul Contracts into the fire. Affirm your own authority and ability to say “no.”

Take all the time you need to relax deeply with this one:

“I let go of harmful thoughts and belief systems that interfere with direct communication and connection to my heart, mind and Soul.”

In your imagination, you can see those jumbled up connections moving up and out of you, disappearing into the Light.


Free your mind and spirit from the agreement of having to organize around the patriarchal imprint of control, greed, hatred, prejudice and fear.

“I choose to create Common Ground through cooperation, equality and balanced prosperity instead.”


Decide to connect through the energies of Joy and Gratitude, rather than Greed and Revenge.

When your chakras can source from a positive life force, Divine Connection is possible and preferable.

“I decide to connect through Joy and Gratitude, rather than fear and hatred.” 


Reclaim Your Personal Power ~

“I am free to choose a direct and divine connection to my Soul.”

Release Attachments ~

Because of the sheer amount of information and interference we encounter everyday, we need to address the possibility that various aspects of our subtle energy field may be damaged or struggling with attachments.

Use this Key to relax and meditate on for as long as you like. Like a healing balm, imagine that a loving coat of peace and comfort is pouring down over you.

“My energy system can easily and effectively neutralize interfering energies and detach from them.”


Correct Reversals and Blockages ~

When we’re under extreme stress, it’s not uncommon for the chakras and/or meridians to start running in reverse or shut down entirely. Relax and let this symbol help you make corrections to problems including deformations, reversals and misdirections.

“I repair any glitches, holes or blockages in my energy system.”

Take all the time you need with this.

Connect the Hara Lines ~

Whenever working with chakras, you may need to repair and/or strengthen hara lines for improved communication and healing.
The hara lines are like tiny webs of light that connect the chakras throughout your body. Sometimes they’re broken or damaged because of trauma, illness, toxicity or sudden changes in the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight).
This Circle gives extra energy to the hara lines that surround and connect with your Crown Chakra.

“I repair and strengthen my hara lines.”
“My chakras are connected properly to my Soul
through a golden web of light.”

It also helps us navigate where we are and to organize our consciousness around being present.

“I am present inside of my body. Everyone else is outside.”


Adapt to the Generative Life Energies Available in the New Paradigm ~

It helps to know that you can close down many harmful energies left over from the old paradigm that may be running rampant through your body, mind and space.

“I have protection.”
“I close down all harmful energy channels.”

Once they’re closed, you’ll find that your chakra centers are more open and receptive to the generative life force (chi) that is available in the New Paradigm. You can “install” this symbol like an adaptive filter for you to function better with the lighter, quicker energy of Air.

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


Let Go of Any Remaining Ties That Connect You To Abuse ~

“I let go of those bridges that lead me back to trauma, control or abuse.”


Dissolve Destructive Blueprints That May Have Come Up ~

Take your time and visualize them dissolving like dark clouds into the pure, light of the Sun.

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!


Close the Door on All that Confusion and Embrace Closure ~

Remember to close the door on holes or pathways in your mind or energy field that lead back to suffering or harmful communications. 

If those pathways remain open, all kinds of trouble (violent thought forms, karma, issues or emotions) can continue to pass back and forth through the opening without your awareness. This can manifest in sudden and mysterious illnesses, mental confusion, issues with prosperity or chronic states of overwhelm. Take all the time you need. There are probably a lot of them.

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

Close the doors both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body.


Check Back Into Your Connection to Spiritual Guidance Again ~

How are you experiencing your spiritual guidance now? Is it more direct? Is there anything you would change or improve on it?


Repair and Refocus Your Auras ~

At the end of this kind of process, it’s important to make sure that any holes or tears in your auras are repaired and refocused, especially when there are so many chaotic toxins floating around!

“My auras are sealed, repaired and refocused.”
“The healing protection for my body strengthened.”


Finish By Grounding the Benefits ~

Take a moment and get grounded so that you can actualize this new connection with your Crown Chakra.


You are learning to manage your self-determination in a conscious, balanced and beneficial way. Now would be an excellent time to go for a walk out in Nature or exercise.

Be sure to move your body and breathe deeply!

Emotional Stress and Memory

Can Emotional Stress Affect Your Memory?

Especially when the stakes are high, you need to remember the important things. However, people often times have memory problems when they’re under a lot of emotional stress, especially if they’re highly sensitive. Why is that and what can be done to help?

Emotional Stress If this sounds like you, you are probably overwhelmed by the uncertainty and ungrounded by the sheer amount of information that you feel you have to process. You might be having experiences like the ones below. 

  • Processing difficult news 
  • Feeling weak or mentally exhausted
  • Disoriented due to grief or sudden loss
  • Picking up on other peoples pain
  • Noticing an increase in forgetfulness
  • Getting confused more easily than usual

If you are, you’re not alone and you can easily get some relief by going through the Emotional Stress that Affects Memory Exercise out of our Soul Oriented Solutions series.

Directions: Start by confirming that this is the best formula for you with the SOS Symbol.

SOS - Soul Oriented Solutions for Emotional Stress
SOS Symbol

Next, go through this short mind exercise to understand how emotional stress might be causing memory lapses in your case and what you can do to help yourself. Read each step and then gaze softly at its Circle, one at a time.

Give yourself permission to look at the Circles in any way or from any angle that you like. All you have to do is stay relaxed. If you’re drawn to focus on the center of a Circle, great!

If you come up with a message, an image or instinctively want to trace over the lines, let your imagination guide you. A playful approach reduces stress and opens up possibilities so you can look at your situation from different perspectives.

Developing intuition in this way enhances your personal growth and can keep those creative juices flowing for better mind function.

Caution: the use of this exercise is not intended take the place of appropriate medical and/or psychiatric care. If you are having prolonged or increasing bouts of memory loss, seek the appropriate medical help.

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

Stress That Affects Memory ~

How Are You Experiencing Disorientation?

1. We’re going to look at several possible reasons why emotional stress might be affecting your memory. One reason could be that you are disoriented due to a sudden recent change. You might also be picking up on other people’s stress. Another possibility could be that your mind has been exposed to an overwhelming amount of information. It helps to be aware of what is involved.

Let this Circle help you gather up any important information involved. Your unconscious mind knows what’s pertinent and what’s not.

You might want to jot down any impressions you notice. However, don’t be surprised if nothing definite comes to you. There may not be any words because the unconscious mind is not linear. 

Just make note of what your experience is for now.


What is a Clear Intention That will Help?

2. To help bring your mind into focus, establish a simple and clear intention for this exercise.

“I improve mental acuity and brain function.”

Go ahead and meditate on the center open space of this chart with that intention in mind. Breathe deeply and relax. Don’t try to make anything happen. A relaxed mind will lead you to a more relaxed body!

When the energy of the chart slows down, you’re ready to move onto the next step.


What Would You Like to Shine Light On?

3. The pineal gland is an important part of your brain because of its main function of regulating light and darkness through its production and secretion of melatonin. In addition, the pineal contains light-sensitive cells that control your equilibrium through the circadian cycle of sleep and wakefulness.
Melatonin also supports healthy memory function and reproductive cycles.

Relax and breathe for a minute or two and let this Chakra Key help you clear toxins from your pineal gland so that your natural rhythms and cycles can come into better balance.


How Would You Like to Feel?

4. The hypothalamus is a part of your brain that regulates homeostasis. Through it, you have the ability to maintain inner balance and a calm state of mind. It also regulates a variety of functions including your physical development, digestive health and metabolism.

Allow this Chakra Key to help you clear and balance your hypothalamus.


What Would You Like to Remember?

5. The hippocampus is actually two structures located on either side of the temporal lobe that are involved with memory development, verbal, spacial and directional skills.

Repeat what you just did in the previous steps. Relax and breathe while you gaze at this Chakra Key to clear out toxins and bring both areas of your hippocampus into balance.

Once you’ve really relaxed with it, check in with a question:

“Is there something I’ve forgotten that’s important? More than one?”

Make a note of it and continue with your mind exercise.


What Would Bring You More Ease?

Emotional Stress and the Third Eye6. There’s another part of your brain function that taps into the wisdom of your Soul. Some call it the Third Eye Chakra. Through it, the pineal, hippocampus and hypothalamus can connect and work together to enhance learning and create coherent thoughts. Intuition and common sense can then blossom and communicate meaningful insights to your Heart Center.

Keep relaxed and gaze softly at the Circle with each affirmation:

“My common sense and intuition are working together.”

“I receive meaningful insights about my situation.”
“My mind helps me to reduce stress and integrate joy into my life.”


What Needs to Get Connected?

7. Keep relaxed and gaze softly at the Circle with each affirmation:

“My mind is connected and balanced to create improved mental acuity and brain function.”

“I improve my comprehension and understanding.”
“I connect with solutions.”


What Would Support You?

8. It’s possible that you’re dehydrated or not getting the right nutrition. While you gently focus on this Circle, ask yourself:

“Is there something I could eat or drink that would help me?”
“Is there something I’m eating or drinking too much of?”


 Is There Something That You Need To Let Go Of?

9. If there is, let this Circle help you open up and let it go.

Just keep letting go and release all that emotional stress. See yourself relaxing under an afternoon Sun. Take all the time you like. It’s okay to let go and rest.


What Would Help Your Emotional Stress?

10. Is there something that you could do to help your mental emotional stress?
Is there something it would be best to stop doing?
Use this Circle to consider actions you could take that would help in this situation. Make sure they would be genuinely helpful to you now.

Is there anything you could do or stop doing that would be genuinely helpful to others?


What Is Your heart Saying?

11. It could be that things are just moving too fast and your mind is trying to keep up. Take a moment to slow down and tune into your Heart Center. Ask yourself:

“What is my heart telling me?”
“Am I worried about something (physical, financial, family issue, etc)?”

“What have I been doing? Has that helped?”
“What do I feel?”


How Will Life Be Better Without This Emotional Stress?

12. Your physical body is the foundation for your vitality and your instinct to take care of yourself. Clearing energy, especially in your lower body, will give you strength and support to make necessary changes. Put both feet on the floor to help you ground. Take whatever time you need.

Once you feel stronger, ask yourself:

“What, if anything, am I forgetting about my physical health?
“Is there something I need to remember?”

There’s always more than one way to do things, what new way comes to mind in this case?


What Would Keep You Grounded?

13. A strong connection to the Earth gives you support to make the necessary changes and stay balanced at the same time. Put both feet on the floor to help you ground.
If needed, go back to Step 7 and connect with your other chakras.
Take whatever time you need.  

“What do I need to remember?”
“Do I need to change anything?”
“Do I have the connections and resources I need to resolve this stress?”
“What would be involved? Is anything missing?”


Ask For Blessings On Your Life Path.

14. Finish by balancing out your Life Path Chakras. They help you stay on your own path and tune into the promptings of your Soul – a very important thing to remember!

“I open up to my potential and stay positive.”

“I stay true to my Soul’s path.”

You may want to sit with this for quite a while.
Plan to take a walk or relax for a bit out in Nature once you feel ready.
Releasing emotional stress takes time and space!
