Intuitive Guidance for Decisive Action
In Gifts from the Rainforest, there are 58 plant, animal and nature spirits that share their message with a focusing tool I call the Intuitive Learning Circles. These Circles have a hypno-therapeutic action that can help us sort out information and enhance our objectivity.
When your mind is all cluttered up with too many thoughts it can be hard to tell if something you want to do is really a good idea. Also, some ideas that are really important can get overlooked.
You Can Use the Circles to Ask About Specific Actions to Take ~
You might want to journal to keep track of the thoughts and ideas that come up with this exercise. You can go deeper through journaling or conversation with a therapist or like-minded group.
This kind of processing is a powerful resource that helps you to sort out your thoughts. Emotions can be felt and more easily released once they’re out of the head and put down on paper, which prevents overwhelm, anxiety and burnout.
Ask Your Intuitive Guidance About Specific Actions to Take ~
Slow down with #23 Sloth and pick one action that you’re considering doing at this time – i.e. taking a trip, starting a business, a project, etc.
If you’re all up in your head, use Dragonfly Medicine #31 to consciously bring your energy down into your solar plexus area and connect with your natural instincts and self-healing abilities.
Once you’ve done that, slow down even more!
Stop focusing on all that you’re trying to accomplish and take a few minutes to clear out your mind with #12 Rat Medicine.
When your mind starts racing and you’re too busy to stop and take a deep breath, you’re identifying with herd mentality from the collective ego. Catch yourself before your ego runs away completely!
Imagine you can sweep away all that extraneous clutter to the Light and close the doors behind you that let all that clutter in.
Then relax! Take several long, deep breaths – inhale and exhale.
Move around and stretch if that helps.
Once your mind has calmed down, gently bring your mind back to your question using #36 Plant Spirits. What were you thinking of doing?
Notice how much better your body feels when your mind has calmed down…
Now you’re ready to ask: How would taking that action nurture you?
~ Is the timing for it right?
~ Would doing it energize you, drain you or something else?
~ What is your impression of how it would actually feel to do that thing?
~ How would it affect others?
Dive deeper with #23 Divine Perspective from Soul Prayer Charts. A perspective from your Soul will help you expose potential sabotage and find your way forward in positive, productive ways.
Take the action that you’re considering and project it out into the future – what do you sense?
~ Does taking this action serve you on a Soul level?
~ Does it have purpose and meaning?
~ Would it be joyful?
~ What are the possibilities that could result from taking this action?
~ Are there certain steps or decisions that need to happen first?
Use #33 Llama and consider your proposed action again.
What effect would deciding to take this action have on your other priorities?
~ Are you willing to be flexible and follow inner guidance as you go?
~ Are there any new decisions you need to make about yourself?
Get all the gears moving together.
~ What decisions do you need to make about others?
If you need to, use the Circle to unstick and remove mental obstacles from your thinking process.
Intuitive Guidance for Setting Yourself Up for Success
If this would be a good action for you to take, consciously use #34 Butterfly to tap into the most beneficial energies and nourishment that would support your ability to follow through successfully.
If you’ve decided that it isn’t a good idea for you, use #5 Wasp to pull your energy back from that possibility.
Perhaps your time would be better spent doing something else. If that’s the case, look to your intuition to follow a better plan.
Regardless of what you’ve decided, remember the Golden Mean and that what you put out comes back to you.
Confirm with #14 Otter that you are centered within yourself properly to put your highest good out there so that you can receive a reciprocal, beneficial response.
Place your best intention in the center of his Circle like a bull’s eye. Send your energy to your highest good and then allow the energy to return to you.
Congratulations! You’ve made yourself an active part of the equation.
Now, be sure to raise your vibration with #42 Rainforest Tree so that you can easily rise above any misunderstandings, difficulties or miscommunications that may interfere with a successful follow through.

Is there anything else that you need to be aware of?
If there is, make a note of it.
Remember to stay open and ask for help in case you need to adapt to changing circumstances.
Now that you have answers from your intuitive guidance, take a moment to close off any harmful pathways or leaks in your energy field.
“All doors, holes or pathways that lead to suffering are sealed and healed.”
“I turn my attention in the direction of my Soul’s intention.”
Congratulations! 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!
Please note: These Animal Totems can help you practice how you’re using your decisions to create better outcomes. However, your intention, whatever it may be, cannot be completed until you have followed through and taken action in the real, physical world.
Did you remember to cross and uncross over the midline of your body?
Were you willing to play and be flexible with the Circles?
In this exercise and all the other sequences on this website, I’ve taken the time to create a general template that I hope will be helpful. However, self-healing is an individual process and your experience will be unique – differing even from one day to the next. That’s why it’s important to remember that your Soul is in charge!
With that in mind, you may be ready to begin your Animal Totem Tracks series. When you’re ready, check in with your Soul to find out.
