Would you like to have a powerful form of cognitive behavioral learning that trains your mind to clear confusion and focus better?
Explore the Intuitive Learning Circles™ – simple, step by step tools you can easily use to improve your comprehension and relax your stress!
How do they work?
Right Brain Thinking = Imagination, Creativity, Intuition.
The geometric patterns of the Intuitive Learning Circles engage your right brain by going beyond your critical mind to relax your somatic and autonomic nervous systems (that’s the part that’s responsible for controlling bodily functions without conscious direction, like breathing or your heartbeat).
Left Brain Thinking = Analytical, Logic, Linear.
The accompanying message, question or affirmation brings your left brain into play by giving you a structure for analyzing a variety of concepts and possibilities for self-exploration. The result is a dynamic system for developing intuition, comprehension and self-regulation skills.
By relaxing and gazing softly at the Circle, your right and left brain can meet and come into balance with each other.
The best thing is – You are in control and can go at your own pace at all times!
Now that you know how they work, are you ready to explore the Intuitive Learning Circles by experiencing what they do?
Great! Get ready to relax. This process uses relaxation and breath like biofeedback to calm your nervous system. Simply gaze softly at the Circle below and breathe deeply several times. It helps if you can inhale through your nose.
Breathe in on the count of three and slowly exhale on the count of five.
Take your time and feel your body breathing. You can come into alignment with your own parasympathetic nervous system.
Once you’ve relaxed, it’s easier to improve comprehension.
The question or affirmation that accompanies an Intuitive Learning Circle™ is there to stimulate your cerebral cortex, igniting awareness.
Relax and gaze at this Circle. Imagine that you can gather up important information. Ask yourself:
“What stresses me out about learning? What is difficult for me?”
A clear answer may take awhile because everyone has a different response when they explore the Intuitive Learning Circles™.
Some people say that the Circles move, rotate, vibrate or even change colors. Don’t worry. That just means they’re working. Your goal is to keep relaxing and gaze at each Circle until it appears normal to you.
A Note about Mind Body Integration~
The 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.
Imagine the lines are moving around, relaxing and going limp on this Circle. You can move or stretch your body too, if you like. While you’re doing that, ask yourself:
“What do I think is my biggest obstacle?”
You might want to make a note of the answer that comes. Writing it out or journaling helps to move conflicts out of your mind so you can begin to find solutions.
The Intuitive Learning Circles™ use a simple method of questioning and answering – one step at a time .
By continuing to ask questions from multiple points of view, your consciousness expands while your unconscious mind releases negative thoughts and feelings. Each Circle could have simple questions or affirmations with it that stimulates your self-awareness. For example:
How are you feeling about learning right now?
Would anything help? If so, what?
You are in complete control of your emotions and how you process them.
You might get new ideas about how to approach your challenge more creatively.
For many people, different sequences have been utilized for self care, behavioral changes and personal growth.
These mindfulness tools have been tested extensively in clinical and classroom settings since 2001, with both children and adults. They have often been the extra step that helps people to prioritize and sort through what’s most important to them. That clarity has the power to transform chaotic or confusing situations into opportunities for greater health and harmony.
Like navigational tools, Intuitive Learning Circles™ guide us, reaffirming the power of choice.
Especially when it comes to difficult life changes such as moving, death, divorce or job loss, we want to learn to trust our inner resources to guide us to a positive resolution.
Take a moment and let this Circle help you clarify what’s best for you. In your mind’s eye, see yourself heading towards a lighter, clearer mind space.
“Am I heading in the right direction to successfully accomplish my intentions?”
Finally, people who explore the Intuitive Learning Circles ™ are often able to rise above negative family dynamics or societal conditioning.
As more and more people learn to reclaim their power on the unconscious level, the collective unconscious also realigns itself with preferred behaviors.
“How would I prefer to experience learning?”
Congratulations! Letting go and allowing yourself to explore new possibilities is essential for effective cognitive and behavioral change.
Would you like to explore the Intuitive Learning Circles ™ further so you can enhance your intuition, your creativity or self care habits?
Please note: While one person might experience an initial feeling of lightness after working with the Circles, another could feel exhausted. It’s not unusual to have an epiphany followed by an outpouring of pent up emotions, tiredness or even a physical release.
Some people experience nothing during a process only to have significant insights later on. Whatever happens for you, make sure you allow time to take good care of yourself! Be sure to rest, drink plenty of water and get some exercise (movement is great for integrating new ideas).
