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.


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.


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.”


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?


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.


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!
