Mind Exercises using the Intuitive Learning Circles™ have been created by Rheanni Lightwater and published by Soul Resources LLC.
These tools have been tested extensively in clinical and classroom settings, with both children and adults. In many cases, they have been the extra step that helped to transform chaotic, destructive situations into ones of greater health and harmony.
So, let’s explore the Intuitive Learning Circles and our Mind Exercises – what are they and how do they work?
Intuitive Learning Circle Mind Exercises are a form of cognitive learning and nervous system rehabilitation based on the contributions of many fine teachers* and innovative systems of natural healing and personal growth, including:
Cranio-sacral Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Neuro-linguistic Programming, Somatic Education, Hanna Somatics, Biosomatics, Reiki, Five Element Theory, Dream Work, Trans-generational Soul Work, Peruvian Shamanism, Hawaiian Huna, Regression Therapy, Feng Shui, Touch for Health, Vispassana Meditation, Applied Kinesiology, Tibetan Energy Work and Focusing.
*Special thanks is due to the late author and Chiropractor, Dr. Victor Beasley for his influential book, Intuition By Design. Without his ingenious design for energy geometrics, the Intuitive Learning Circle ™ method would not exist.
They activate right/left brain integration.
The geometric patterns in the Intuitive Learning Circles engage your right brain (imagination & intuition). The images suggest a mild trance, which introduces relaxation into your somatic and autonomic nervous systems (the parts that are responsible for controlling bodily functions without conscious direction, like breathing or your heartbeat).
The accompanying message, question or affirmation brings your left brain into play (linear thinking & logic). The words give you a structure for analyzing your relationship to a variety of concepts and possibilities for movement, healing and creativity. The result is a dynamic system for intuition training, self-exploration and personal growth!
The images work by having you breathe deeply while you look at them with a soft focus for one to two minutes. A longer or shorter time may be necessary. Each Circle could have a simple question or suggestion with it that stimulates your self-awareness.
Now that you know how they work, are you ready to experience some introductory Mind Exercises to improve your learning and decision making abilities?
Great! Gaze gently at the Circle and take several relaxing breaths…
Benefit #1 Open your heart to learning something new ~
Benefit #2: Increase somatic awareness and get centered.
You may want to move around and stretch your muscles. Great. Do it! The mind learns better when the body is involved…
Benefit #3: Relax and Calm Your Nervous System ~
Any truly effective healing method uses relaxation and the breath to calm the nervous system. Gaze softly at the Circle below and breathe deeply several times to help you create homeostasis. It helps if you can inhale through your nose.
Breathe in on the count of three and slowly exhale on the count of five.
Slow down. Take your time. Connect with your own internal rhythm.
Let any heaviness or anxiety that you may feel just lift up, out of your body.
Keep in mind that everyone has a different response as they explore these Mind Exercises.
With each process, you can go as deep or as light as you choose – and at your own pace. Simply engage with the Circles through your imagination and the suggested positive affirmations.
“I instinctively and intuitively connect with positive energy and healthy nurturing.”
Many people report that they move, rotate, vibrate or even change colors. This simply means that they’re working with you to stimulate creative brain activity. Just continue to relax and gaze at the Circle until it appears normal to you.
If you feel resistant or stuck ~
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.
“I relax and release negative thinking, self-consciousness and doubt.”
“I feel free to move, write, brainstorm and create the highest good.”
Benefit #4: Expand Creative Thinking ~
The question or affirmation that accompanies an Intuitive Learning Circle stimulates your cerebral cortex; igniting possibilities, solutions and self-awareness:
Relax and gaze at the center open area of this Circle. Ask yourself:
“What is something I would like to learn more about?”

Mind Exercise 2: Intuition and Inner Guidance
If you’re concerned about what direction you’re heading and how you can cultivate your inner guidance through animal medicine, you may be interested in Clear Perception.
This is a great exercise to help you slow down, get grounded and tune into your gut instinct by following the guidance of dog medicine. The process will help you be sure you’re staying on track with what’s really important for you right now.
Mind Exercise 3: Purpose and Autonomy
There’s a lot of concern out there about how to deal with intrusive, manipulative people. Gaslighting, peer pressure, group agendas and even psychic attacks have long been common practices used by abusers, dictators, narcissists and cult leaders to get their way.
If you’re on the receiving end of this kind of power struggle, Grounding in the Truth is a quick mind exercise that will help you stay centered and grounded even when someone is really messing with you. This is one of our most frequently sought out games. Play it any time you’re feeling self-doubt or need to disconnect from an intrusive person.
Mind Exercise 4: Know When Someone is Lying
Did you know that you instinctively know when someone is lying to you?
Your gut instinct is the best lie detector and has all the information it needs – as long as you’re present and paying attention! It’s just that for some reason, the information is being blocked from your conscious awareness and you can’t see the signs.
