Reforming Misplaced Logic

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

Rheanni Lightwater - Reforming Misplaced Logic
Mind Exercises with Rheanni Lightwater

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

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

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

How Can Misplaced Logic Impair Personal Growth and Joy?

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

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

Examples:

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

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

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

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


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

Mind Body Integration

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

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


Is Your Logical Reasoning Working For or Against You?

Step One: Choose a subject.

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

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

 

Step Two: Clarify what’s been happening.

See if you can determine the danger behind your underlying premise. What is the reasoning behind your experience and how is it working out?

Why do you think this keeps happening?

 

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

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

What is the underlying premise? What do you do?

When I think or believe ___________, I _____________.

Is this misplaced logic? Is my reasoning sound?

Is this what I really want? Are the results I’m getting sustainable?

 

Step Four: Gently explore how the original premise came to be.

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

Give yourself time to sort out your reasoning process.

 

Step Five: Get present.

Relax for a minute while you gaze softly at this Circle. Open and close your fingers. Check the time and date. Where are you? All these things help.

Now that you’re present, ask if this reasoning is true under your current conditions.

What, if anything, has changed?

 

Step Six: Empower your highest good.

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

 

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

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

What new agreements would you like to make with your Self?

 

Step Eight: Make energetic corrections to restore balance.

Bring your heart center into balance.

 

Bring your senses into balance and proper connection with your Soul.

 

Connect directly with the energy of the Earth to help you ground.

 

Step Nine: Dissolve the False Mental Constructs.

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

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

 

The Essential HumanTo make sure the process is complete, detach from the misplaced logic using The Essential Human. Follow the processes on pages 97 – 101 until you can see yourself standing next to the ocean with the Sun sparkling on the water. It’s a new dawn and your energy is completely clear…  the darkness completely gone. 

Take all the time that you need.

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


Extra-intuitive Activities

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

Now that your mind is fresh…

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

“My new underlying premise is ___________________.

 

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

I am _________. My reformed goal is __________________.

 

 

Evaluate your Goal and Premise Using the Four Directions

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

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

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

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

 

Use your spiritual guidance for discernment from the West.

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

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

 

Use your healthy spiritual reason to evaluate from the North.

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

Am I respecting myself? ____ What would love do?

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

 

Use conscious decision making skills from the South.

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

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

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

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


INTEGRATION

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

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


Completion

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

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

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


Future Pacing

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

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

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

How does it feel a year from now?


Gratitude

You can thank yourself for taking the time today to clear up your misplaced logic and make new choices – a gift that will make your life a whole lot better!

Bring all the energy of gratitude and appreciation in towards the center.


CLOSURE

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

“All holes are sealed and healed.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

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

Learning Resiliency with Mind Exercises

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What energy drain comes to mind first?

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

Step 1:

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

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

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

Protection

Step 2:

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

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

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

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

Step 3:

As you gaze at this Circle, ask yourself:

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

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

Step 4:

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

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

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

Congratulations!

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

Learning Resiliency - Extra-intuitive Activities

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

There are three processes that I recommend in this situation:

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

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

SOS - Soul Oriented Solutions

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

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

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

Retrain Your Mind To Go For Joy

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

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

Retrain Your Mind to Go For Joy

For a lot of us, a tremendous amount of our learning power has been focused on externally sourced goals. We try so hard to look good, prevent mistakes, avoid getting caught, make fantasies happen and be “right.” Sadly, most of us are taught that we’re supposed to be perfect, so that’s what we’ve trained the mind to go for.

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

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

Retrain Your MindOn the other hand, going for joy usually creates more joy – which would be much better. However, in some situations, it might be even more effective to go for “freedom”, “balance” or “sustainable prosperity.”

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


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

~ with Rheanni Lightwater, CHT, CKP

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

“I reclaim and balance my five senses.”

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

“I use them to become aware of interference, obstacles and self sabotage.”

“I gain clear awareness of beneficial opportunities, solutions and ________.”

An important note  about Mind Body Integration ~ 

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

 

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

If it were a percentage, what might it be?

10%? 20%? 50% or more?

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

 

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

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

You can get up and move around if you like. Take all the time that you need.

 

Step Four: Think about your situation again. What do you really want to accomplish?

 

Step Five: Take a moment and focus inwardly on what’s most important for you.

Chakra Healing - Third Eye Chakra

Remember to keep breathing!

 

Step Six: Clear the energy in your Root Chakra so you can connect with the concept of your goal and bring it into physical manifestation.

 

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

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

Step Eight: Choose more beneficial ingredients from the Field of Potential to create the “soup” of your life.

The Essential Human* If you have a copy of The Essential Human, now would be a good time to use Future Pacing on page 140 to help you project a preferred outcome into the future. Choose new ingredients from The Essential Human #1 – 42. Use this affirmation:

“I release harmful ingredients and access beneficial ingredients.”

 

Step Nine: Now that you’ve refocused your thoughts and energy on joy, take a break. Give your mind less to have to think about.

“I close the door on all that confusion. I give my mind a rest.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

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

Thank you for playing Retrain Your Mind to Go for Joy. Now is a good time to go for a walk and relax!

Self Love: A Quiz on Self-care

Are You Showing Up For Yourself? A Self Love Quiz & Self-care Alignment

Self Love Quiz

The world is filled with advice about how to do this and that. How to find love… how to be happy… what you need to wear… how you need to look. The advertising in the media has an agenda and unconsciously you know what it is: “You’re not good enough as you are – buy our product and you will instantly be fixed!”

Your own mind may be constantly fussing about the past – what you did or didn’t do – or you may be worrying about the future. Especially lately, it’s all too easy to get caught up in external dramas and ignore how important it is for us to stay grounded and keep our minds calm.  

In times like this it’s obvious that what most people really need and want is love. But how can we get there? The way that seems to work best is to remind ourselves through self love. Unfortunately, we often forget to show up for ourselves and in the process, we miss out on what we want the most! 

You can take this short self love quiz that uses angelic guidance and your Essential Self to help remind you that you are a being of Love.

All you need to do is gaze softly at each symbol while you read the affirmation or question that goes with it. 

Begin by Asking for Help from Angelic Beings of Light.

Imagine that you can ask them: “Please, help me slow down and understand how to love myself better…

Am I showing up for myself?” 

The answer you get may be “yes,” “no,” “sometimes” or “not lately.”

 

Continue your inquiry using this Mandala from Kuan Yin to help you access truthful information:

“Do I often show up more for others than I do for myself?”

“Do I easily get caught up in deceit, dramas and confusion?”

Truth Mandala

“Do I include myself in the equation of creating Love?”

 

“If I show up more for others than myself a lot, what is my purpose in doing so?

If I get caught up in deceit, dramas and confusion a lot, what is my purpose in doing that?”

“Is it working? Does it help me? How much energy do I use doing these things?

Is that really the best thing for everyone in the long run?”

 

Are you ready to realign your energy to include what’s best for you? If so, that is self love! Ask your angels to help you fill your Self with strength and courage to love yourself better. Imagine that with every breath, you are filling up with love and light. Here’s a possible affirmation that could help:

“I am important. When I am grounded and love myself, I am grounding Love on the planet.”

 

With this Circle, become aware of your solar plexus – the soft area in front just below where your ribs go up.

This is the area where your Essential Self is properly positioned.

 

See if you can relax that area and allow positive energy to flow into it with this affirmation:

“I am present and included in the equation of creating Love.”

Energy Medicine for the New Paradigm

If you do Reiki, you can send it right to your solar plexus.

 

Now gently look at this symbol and ask your Essential Self:

“Is there something I need to think, do, change or have that would help me to attract more love into my life?”

You may need some extra help from Soul Prayer Charts. Choose a number between 1 – 24 and click through to that chart.

 

Use these positive affirmations to redirect how you’re using your energy:

“I am ready, willing and able to receive positive energy from my innermost knowing.

I am a being of Love. I am part of the equation. I am part of the solution.

I now allow myself to receive the benefits of sending Love out.”

Do you need assistance from Gifts from the Rainforest? If you get a “yes”, choose a number between 1 – 49 and click through to that plant, animal or nature medicine.

 

Sit back and relax a moment – allow yourself to receive what you need most. Imagine what it would feel like if you allowed Love to move freely through your being – through your life – like a gentle wind. Let your Essential Self daydream as long as you want.

 

Now imagine that your Angels are surrounding you with courage, strength and determination to be the very best that you can be!

 

Finish your self love quiz by imagining you’re facing the Sun and radiating the benefit of its life-giving, positive rays.

“I decide to follow my Inner Light and Divine Guidance.”

 

Now you’re ready to ask your question again:

“Am I showing up for myself? Do I Love who I am?

Am I receiving Love?”

Old Soul

If the answer is “yes,” congratulations

If the answer is “sometimes,” you’re making progress…

If the answer is “no,” decide to begin today. It’s never too late!

Creating Internal Safety

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

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

Second Chakra - Creating Internal Safety

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

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

Gaze softly at the Reiki Chakra Key below to help you balance and gather up physiological information that will help you organize your space in a way that helps you feel safe and healthy.

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

Move around and stretch if you need to.

 

Now that you’re more relaxed, imagine you can see the space within your Second Chakra (remember, that’s located about 2″ below your navel).

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

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

 

2. Gaze at this Circle for Divine Protection and ask for help so that you can get more aware.

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

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

  • Is something missing? Is something present that shouldn’t be?
  • Is there any toxic build up?
  • What else do you notice that doesn’t seem right? Make notes so that you’ll remember.

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

What would remedy the situation?

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

 

4. You could be preoccupied by other things that are causing you to be anxious. Like many of us, you may be reorganizing your work/living arrangements. Let this Circle help you relax and answer questions about how you need to nurture yourself now, under your new circumstances:

“Is there something I can let go of that will help ease the situation? If so, what is it and where is it located?”

“Have I forgotten something that I need to add to my space?”

“Is there anything else?”

Many times after a significant change, it’s a great help to rearrange or clean out certain areas of our homes. Especially crystals. Read more about that here…

Feng shui tradition also suggests to find at least twelve objects to move. This Circle may help you come up with the objects that would be most helpful for you to move!

Old Soul

 

4. Now that you’ve considered your external environment, it’s time to check in with your body. Take a minute and use this next Circle to tune into yourself: What emotion is running through you? Is it throwing you off balance?

Is that emotion helpful or harmful to you?

If it’s harmful, you might be experiencing a compulsion, obsession or phobia from the collective unconscious. If that’s happening, release your agreement to carry it any longer.

 

6. Is there anything else that’s irritating you?

Identify it if you can.

What will remedy the situation?

Does something need to be moved, cleaned, cleared or rearranged? Does anything need to be removed completely?

Is there anything else?

 

7. Is there anything that you could bring into your space or your diet that would help you be happier or more creative?

Would anything increase your good health or emotional stability?

Could anything be done to increase your sense of safety?

What might you add that would bring more beauty into your space?

Is there anything else you need to know?

 

You can finish the game today by closing the door to any old pathways to suffering. Then remind yourself that your personal space belongs to you. How you take care of it has a profound effect on the rest of your life!

Closure for Mind Body Healing

Thank yourself for taking the time today to go through Creating Internal Safety – a gift that will make your life a whole lot better! Bring the energy of gratitude in towards the center and let it connect with your heart.

Congratulations! Now is a good time to take a walk or go out into Nature to help this all integrate.

Developing Precognition – Staying Out of Trouble

Could You Be Stepping Into Danger or Taking the Hit for Someone Else? Developing Precognition Will Help You to Protect Yourself.

Rheanni Lightwater - Developing Precognition
Intuition Training w/ Rheanni Lightwater

The Intuitive Learning Circles ™  are great at developing precognition, bringing intuitive hits, hunches and other unconscious information up to the surface to be examined more closely. Especially if you have learning difficulties or your inner guidance is blocked for some reason. That’s why I’m sharing this Mind Exercise from Learning in the New Paradigm. By playing, you’ll have the opportunity to engage your imagination and shed some light on potential situations where you might be better off just getting out of the way!


If you’ve ever stepped into a compromising situation or gotten caught in the middle of a fight between people, you know what it feels like to take a punch that was actually meant for someone else. It feels horrible! Especially for highly sensitive people, who often get caught up in emotional and mental conflicts between people.

“If only I knew beforehand or had some kind of “spidey sense” that there was going to be a problem, I wouldn’t have even shown up!”

But wait. That’s not really so far out of the realm of possibilities. It’s called developing precognition or as I like to say, listening to your intuitive hit.

Clearing the Way for Making Smart Decisions

Use Your Inner Guidance and Gut Instincts to Get Out of the Way and Learn How to Be in the Right Place at the Right Time.

You’ve probably had an experience of knowing that it just felt wrong to go to a certain place at a certain time. Then later, you find out that you were right. Something dangerous happened in that very same place and time! That’s your precognition at work and it’s a darn useful skill to have, especially when times are so chaotic.

In the old paradigm based on greed and elitism, it’s been commonplace for people to try to control things by invading other people’s space or interfering with important personal projects or relationships. This can happen on a physical level, but it can also happen on an energetic level, which often causes emotional shock that sits frozen under the surface of our awareness. We have expressions for when these kinds of manipulations happen.  “Get out of my space,” or “stop playing mind games with me,” are just a few.


Preparations for Developing Precognition

Begin by balancing your senses so that your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek. You can use these affirmations:

“I reclaim and balance my five senses for improved intuition and heightened self-awareness.”

“I fine tune them to be present and aware of my environment.”

“I sense my circumstances accurately.”

“I access beneficial resources, solutions and opportunities.”

 

Next, gaze softly at this Circle to help you gently release any shock that might be under the surface for you. Imagine the lines are getting all wavy and loose.

 

Use this next Circle to help you develop precognition in your current situation by tapping into your unconscious mind. Gaze softly at this Circle and ask yourself:

“Is there a situation coming up where I need to get out of the way?”

“Is there a situation where someone is getting in my way or blocking what I need to do?”

Be patient and relax into your body. The Circle is helping you focus in on pertinent unconscious information. Your answer could come in the form of a feeling, an image, words or a combination of them all.

 

Sometimes we’re empathically picking up on someone else’s situation. Could that be happening in this case?

 

Is there an action you’re thinking about taking that isn’t in your best interests?

If the answer you get is “no”, count yourself lucky and keep up the good work staying out of trouble!

If the answer is “yes” or “maybe”, keep going with this exercise to find out more about what’s going on and what you can do about it.


Continue the Mind Exercise for Developing Precognition

1. Slow down and ask for more information about what’s really going on. Use your imagination and see the landscape of your mind slowing down too. Things may simply be moving too fast for you to get out of the way when trouble is about to happen.

 

3. When things are chaotic or moving too fast, it’s easy to get distracted and fall into scams, traps and deceptive mind games. Plus, people are more likely to be mixed up in situations where they really don’t belong. Use this Reiki Chakra Key to open your Third Eye to intuition and common sense. You can use these positive affirmations to help:

“I open my Third Eye and let it balance. I use it to separate what’s true from what’s a distraction or all-out lie.”

 

Being in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time

4. Remember the relationship or situation where you think there might be a problem. While you think about it, gaze at this Circle and ask your gut a couple of simple “yes” or “no” questions:

“What is the situation? Is there any danger in this situation?”

Once you find the situation, ask yourself:

“What is the danger here? Can I tell how I’m participating in the situation? Is there an important reason why I’m participating or considering doing this? Is it worth it to put myself in this situation?”

 

5. Continue your self-inquiry:

“Would I be pulled off track or doing harm to myself? Would my projects be harmed? My loved ones? If so, what is the problem?”

It could be timing, placement, priorities, a belief, an agreement or something else…

Take your time to get as much information as you can.

 

6. Would being in this situation have a negative effect on your boundaries? Your prosperity? Your health or well-being? In what way?

 

7. Sometimes, how people see you can be a source of the problem. People often project what’s going on within themselves onto other people. Check in with this Circle to see if anything like that could be involved. Note – what’s being projected onto you could be either unflattering, flattering or both!

“In this situation, am I being projected on?”

So, now you have a lot more information to work with as you decide what to do!

8. What is the best thing to do in this case? If you need to move out of the way, see yourself doing that in your minds eye. If you need to let go or say “no”, see yourself doing that. Whatever message you get, see yourself taking your own advice.

“What do I need to do?”

Finish this part of Developing Precognition with these affirmations:

“I resolve to be in the right place at the right time for my highest good.”

“I stay out of trouble and follow through on my priorities.”

 

“I close the doors on old habits, distractions or misconceptions.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

 

           

Congratulations!

Take a moment to thank yourself for Developing Precognition, a gift that will save you a lot of time and grief in the long run! Bring the energy of gratitude in towards the center and let it connect with your heart. Now is a good time to take a walk or go out into Nature to help this all integrate. Be prepared for new ideas and solutions to make their way towards you.

Now that you’re clearer about your situation, you may want to go through one of these strengthening exercises, depending on what you’re concern is:

  1. Standing Strong and Grounding in the Truth.
  2. Separate from Negativity and Develop Healthy Boundaries.
  3. Learn How to Stop Being Dumped On or Scapegoated.

Navigate Your Karma

Navigate Your Karma: Understanding How the Root Cause is the Answer to Resolution ~ with Rheanni Lightwater

Your Root Chakra Is Deeply Connected to Personal and Collective Karma that Influences your Physical Conditions.

Root Chakra - Navigate Your Karma

Your chakras are part of how you use your energy to manifest your goals and your root energy provides a foundation for your basic physiological and biological needs. This includes your needs for air, food (nourishment), water, shelter, warmth, sex, sleep and method(s) of communication. This exercise is designed to help you navigate your karma, especially around these basic needs by gently reprogramming your root chakra.


What do I mean by “karma”?

Being human at this time and on this planet is your karma (as well as mine) and we share that karma collectively. In my opinion, the best explanation of karma is simply the physical and spiritual law of cause and effect. “For every action, there is a reaction.” “What I put out comes back to me.”

Navigate Your Karma - Life Destructive Flow

Whenever you have a thought, decide to follow through on it and then take action, you have created karma. As far as the Cosmos is concerned, there is no judgement about it or suffering assigned to it, only consequences. In other words, there will be some kind of effect from anything that’s put into motion.

Let’s use the example of your birth. Certain thoughts, decisions and actions your grandparents took caused them to create the circumstances for your parents to conceive you. You incarnated! Your karmic seeds for being a human have ripened! For better or for worse. That goes for me too, both good and bad, or as I like to put it – preferred and unpreferred.

There is always a mixture of preferred and unpreferred karma. It’s never all bad or all good. Even the terms “good” and “bad” are only relevant to your goals and point of view. You may say that your job situation is bad karma, yet to another person, having any job at all could be seen as good karma to them. The individual’s perspective makes all the difference.

For example, you may see that new car as good karma today and tomorrow you get into a bad accident by driving too fast in it. Is it “good”, “bad”, a punishment? No, simply the natural consequences of actions you’ve taken. However, if you decide that it’s a punishment and then you act on that decision, you are technically creating the karma for “punishment.” The Cosmos is neutral, but you have condemned yourself.

If you then decide to deny your responsibility for your part in that accident and continue to lie to yourself about it, a karmic pattern begins to form (or continues). Denial only plants the karmic seeds for more denial and lies which then leads to punishment, then more denial, which then creates more lies… and so it goes – on and on and on. In Buddhism, it’s called samsara – the cycle of suffering.

The Way Out – You Can Navigate Your Karma by Setting It Right.

Situations are neutral and more often than not, our unpreferred situations actually help us to learn and propel us further on our spiritual journey.

Another more poignant example is our karma as it pertains to the coronavirus. The overall atmosphere of the pandemic and its accompanying financial upheaval has undeniably been a group experience and therefore a clearcut example of collective cause and effect.

Yet the disruption provides valuable experience as it assists us in understanding why we need to deal with social injustice or climate change. We might also discover ways to create more preferred financial structures and live together more peacefully.

So, how might you navigate your karma as an individual in the midst of this collective karma?

There are many choices and subsequent consequences. Some people could make a decision to ignore stay at home recommendations and follow through by going out without protection. “I went out. I got sick. I should have listened!” Some go out and have little or no immediately perceivable consequences. “I went out. I didn’t catch the virus. I’m all that.” Others do everything right and still have a terrible time. “I did everything right. I still got the virus. Why am being punished?”

The structures of the status quo tell us that we are “sinners.” However, the Cosmos is neutral. We are really our own judge and jury. Our perception and what ideas we buy into are the key factors for how we either resolve the karma or intensify it.

So here we all are, sitting in the middle of our pandemic karma. What’s the best thing to do? For me, the initial answer is to come clean with it. Accept my part in what’s happening and learn from it. Be open to new thoughts, make different decisions and then take action on them.

Sounds simple, yet so very difficult. After all, there are those pesky consequences to consider!

Here’s what I do, and it seems to work pretty well. I offer it up for your consideration:

  1. I accept what’s happening and how I feel about it (personal responsibility).
  2. I become open to new thoughts about hope and forgiving myself.
  3. I gather my courage and awareness to make a new decision based on what I would now prefer to experience.
  4. I take action on steps 1, 2 and 3 with care and patient consideration.

Navigate Your Karma - Life Affirming Flow

Let’s Take Care of the Root Cause Through a Mind Exercise Using the Intuitive Learning Circles™

Let’s begin by changing our agreements around punishment and being so very black and white, good and bad about everything. Your nervous system holds the energy of those agreements. To let go, start at the bottom of the line and the bottom of your spine. As you move up, you can imagine a lock unlocking – freeing each vertebrae from the chains of outdated, oppressive agreements – all the way up to the top of your spine.

“I release the agreement that I am a sinner.”

“I let go of any agreements I have that karma is ‘bad’ or ‘good’.”

“I decide that karma is neutral. It’s what I do with it that matters.”

“I give up punishment.”

“I release my judgement and let myself off the hook.”

“I decide to accept what’s happening and learn more preferred ways of being.”

What other agreements would you like to change?

Consider a current experience you’re having that you would like to navigate differently. Take a few minutes with this next Circle to turn down the volume and pay attention to what your current perception is.

 

Once you’ve calmed down, ask yourself:

“How am I perceiving the situation?

What are my fears?

Am I present in my body?”

 

 

Next, make sure that you’re fully present.

Continue to relax and let your 3rd Chakra get connected, open and balanced at your solar plexus (the area where your ribs go up in the front).

Your Essential Self is the embodiment of your instinctual nature and the keeper of your personal  energy. It’s most efficiently located in the 3rd Chakra to help you manifest, create happiness and maintain health.

In times of unpreferred Karma, it’s pretty common for the Essential Self to go into a fight or flight response. It may get angry and resist or it could go into hiding or even dissociate. Are you experiencing one of those responses now?

Remind your Essence that you have given up punishment, that it is safe and that you are completely forgiven. 

Clear a space for preferred root causes to take hold within the Self.

Use this symbol to Dissolve Destructive mental and emotional patterns.
See the patterns like dark clouds that you can dissipate into sunlight and clear blue skies.
“I dissolve destructive patterns that interfere with my health and happiness
and send them to the Sun to be purified.”

 

Once the blueprints seem clear, tap into your Root Chakra to clear the energy there. It helps to imagine it as a brilliant, red vibration swirling in a clockwise direction at the bottom of your pelvis. It may feel stuck, reversed or clogged. Don’t worry! You can clear it through your intention and attention! Feel free to move at any time in any way to help you embody your experience. Take all the time you need to do that.

Once that’s complete, place the energy of Forgiveness in the center open space of the Circle. Let it replace the old, collective foundation of Sin and being a sinner! Visualize letting go of all the guilt, shame and fight or flight responses you may be holding there. Allow it to become the foundation for new preferred decisions and a life affirming karmic flow.

“I recognize how spirit guides me through events.
All holes are sealed and healed.
I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

Congratulations!

Now that you’ve cleared up agreements about sin and punishment you can navigate your karma in much more productive ways!  In this next section, there’s a list of possible activities to follow through with depending on what makes the most sense in your situation.

Learning Resiliency - Extra-intuitive Activities

Additional resources to help you navigate your karma:

You may or may not need additional information that comes directly from your Soul or Higher Self first. Ask:

“Do I need additional information?”

Old Soul

If so, let your intuition choose a number between 1 -49 from Gifts from the Rainforest. Once you have that number, go to that medicine and read about its medicine.

You might also need to choose a Mind Exercise or Self-care Formula for more processing:

There are five processes that I recommend at this stage:

Daily Support. Do you need some daily support to increase your awareness and make sure you’re taking good care of yourself? Go here.

Warning. Is your Essence trying to warn you about possible dangers coming? If so, go to Staying Out of Trouble.

Boundaries. Do you think you may be lost in the chaos and busy thoughts of others? Check out Develop Healthy Boundaries.

Clarification. Do you still feel uncertain about trusting your gut instincts and Essential Self? Go here for greater clarity.

Set Limits. Do you suspect that you’re getting scapegoated or dumped on? Learn How to Set Limitations.

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

This is the intuitive way to decide which process would help you with navigating your karma right now!

Of course, if you want, you can always call (505) 271-4612 or email Rheanni at soulresources@gmail.com if you want to schedule a deeper online clearing.

Mind Body Integration

Challenges to Mind Body Integration

For best results using the Intuitive Learning Circles™, look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction to full embodiment is more complete.

Somatic Learning

  • Mind Body IntegrationThe brain and body communicate through different channels when a part of you is crossed over the center of your body. If you feel resistant or stuck, cross or uncross a hand or foot over the midline of your body and go back to the Circle, breathing patiently. See if your thinking starts to move again. Let negative self-talk go by breathing through it.
  • The Corpus Callosum is a part of the brain that facilitates communication between your left and right cerebral hemispheres. When dealing with learning difficulties, it may help to perform simple cross crawl movements while you gaze at this Chakra Key to balance the chakras at the corpus callosum.
  • Feel free to move at any time in any way to help you embody your experience.

Fixated Thoughts, Conflicts or Shock

  • If you go completely blank or are unable to access anything, the question or subject may have brought up an inner conflict. If that happens, look at this Circle (#32 Condor from Gifts from the Rainforest). Follow these directions:

Take several deep breaths and relax while you gaze into the Circle. Imagine that you can use it to focus in on a thought, experience or conflict that’s causing a problem for you, like a bull’s eye.

Imagine the problem is melting or send a beam of light directly to the blockage. Allow your laser beam to break up the fixation or melt it until it’s gone. Take all the time you need and don’t forget to add any stretching, movements, rolling, shaking, etc., you may need to completely clear the energy.

 Once you’re finished, go back to where you left off and complete whatever you were working on.


Homeopathic Readiness

  • The Intuitive Learning Circles™ are like homeopathic remedies that work on a vibrational level. If you don’t need the remedy, it will do nothing.

So, if you’re already clear and in balance, looking at a Circle will do nothing. If you’ve selected a process that you don’t really need, the Circles will do nothing.

Individual Circles can, however, help you access answers. Just ask, “what do I need here?” Then trust the answer that comes. Maybe there’s another kind of process that would help you better at this time.


Willingness

  • Finally, relax! The Intuitive Learning Circles™ aren’t about “doing it right,” they’re about opening up to the possibilities!

The Intuitive Learning Circles™ should not be considered as an exclusive method of treatment. The appropriate medical or psychotherapeutic authorities should be consulted for the diagnosis and treatment if there is any medical or psychological condition.

How To Trust Your Gut Instinct

This Mind Exercise is about how to trust your gut instinct. Let’s start with the definition of instinct * that I like to use:

How to Trust Your Gut instinct“Instinct is primal and body centered. Its purpose is self-preservation. Instinct tells us that we’re tired, hungry, sad or afraid through a full body response – a feeling, not just a thought. The natural instinct for joy may be suppressed, mistuned and perverted by cultural conditioning.”

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


To have your own experience with how to trust your gut instinct, choose a situation that you have some resistance towards. When instinct goes out of balance it’s usually about something you fear. Or you could be disoriented by confusing changes in your external world. Once you have that situation, follow the directions for this simple series of Intuitive Learning Circles™. They’ve been put together to help you relax, contemplate the nature of instinct and integrate the information.


How to Trust Your Gut Instincts

Continue following the directions while you gaze softly at each Circle.

Step One: It’s easy to get confused by what other people want or social conditioning. Use this Circle to relax and establish an intention to get in touch with your true, gut instincts. These affirmations can help:

“I relax into myself.  I know who I am.’

“I distinguish my needs from the needs of others.”

“I release any agreement I have to distrust who I truly am.”

 

Step Two: Bring your attention to your heart and solar plexus area and “feel” yourself inside that area.

Here is an affirmation that works well:

“I am inside of me. Everything else is outside of me.”

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

 

Step Three: You feel Instinct in your solar plexus area, where your 3rd chakra is located. Use the Circle to let go of any tension in that area. Breathe into it. Let the energy get balanced and open there.

 

Step Four: Without being firmly positioned in the “home base” of your solar plexus, it’s very difficult to trust yourself and access courage. Use this affirmation:

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

“I am upright and facing forward.”

 

Step Five: “I have found my courage and determination.”

“I let them strengthen and support me.”

 

Step Six: Now check in with your gut. What does it tell you to do? How might you go about doing so? The answer will be visceral.

Guidance that comes from balanced instinct is direct and action oriented. It’s purpose is for you to be okay, so if you’re getting too elevated and emotional, use the Circle to help you dial it down. Be patient and listen to what your body is communicating to you.

What do you need?

Once you get an action statement that feels right, Congratulations! You might want to make a note of it. The critical mind often likes to override the gut instinct with a lot of second-guessing, procrastination and feelings of overwhelm.

*If you had any difficulty going through this Mind Exercise, read Challenges to Mind Body Integration.

Extra-intuitive Activities

The following extra-intuitive activities aren’t required, but they can really help you excel in creating the very best of your talents, interests and passions…

Future Pacing

In 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 about how to trust your gut instincts.


How to Trust Your Gut InstinctRemember that when instinct is out of balance, it’s easy to get lost. There is a lack of courage and everything is about avoidance – avoiding getting caught, procrastination and avoiding responsibility. In extremes, this gives rise to panic, scapegoating and disassociation. 

I think most people agree that it would be better to get back into balance and go for joy instead!

Use these symbols and positive affirmations from The Essential Human to access the very best qualities to nurture your instinctual promptings.

“I release the need to be impulsive and reactionary. I now respect my decisions and the decisions of others.”

 

“I release myself from the prison of doubt and confusion. I now choose freedom.”

 

“I release my obsession with the negative. I now live with satisfaction and optimism.”

 

“I release coming from a place of offensiveness or defensiveness. I now come from a place of open receiving.”


INTEGRATION

Imagine that you can access your beneficial karma for trusting yourself. Gather all your good deeds in the center, blank area of this Circle.

“I access my beneficial karma for balanced, instinctual knowing.”

Completion

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

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

“I am grounded in the present.”

 

Ask yourself:

How will it feel to trust my gut instinct in the future?

What about later today or tomorrow?

A month from now?

How does it feel a year from now?

 

Congratulations!

You can thank yourself for taking the time today to learn how to trust your gut instinct – a gift that will make you feel a lot more empowered!

Bring all the energy of gratitude and appreciation in towards the center!

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

“All holes are sealed and healed.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

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