Stuck in the Past

How to Change Negative Thoughts In the New Paradigm ~ 

Are you stuck in the past? At any point during a typical day, you may need to release a negative thought, compulsion or worry that you’ve held onto that no longer serves you. You can gently let go and adapt to some better behavior by starting with a short quiz using the Intuitive Learning Circles.

Are You Bothered By Worry or Negative Thoughts?

As you gaze at the Circle below, go ahead and deliberately find a problem that you’re stuck on and don’t know how to change.

“I find the negative thoughts about ____________ and free myself of them.”

Stuck in the Past

“My new intention is to aim for balance,
health, happiness and ____________.”

Notice how sticky this is and how much energy is involved in the struggle!

What Else Is Going on?

Other things might be happening. Sometimes there’s a karmic entanglement with other people, groups or power structures. Are you involved in a situation where you need to separate yourself out from controlling or harmful manipulations? If so, use this affirmation:

“I release and let go of harmful entanglements.”


Is Your Health or Prosperity Being Affected Negatively?

Are you being distracted? Have you placed your hopes in a losing proposition? Are you stubbornly holding onto ideas that are actually blocking you? Are you trying to do too many things? If you are, ask your heart:

“What can be done about it?”


Are There Any Other Dangers That You Ought to be Aware Of?

There are always those who would love to take advantage of our blind spots. You could be stuck because someone is exploiting you in some way. They could be draining your energy, dumping their problems or just trying to interfere with your plans. The easiest ways for them to succeed is either by flattering you or trying to get you mad. Don’t buy into these ploys!

“I identify dangerous situations and determine how to deal with them effectively.” 


Part II: How Can You Help Yourself?

Now that you have a better idea about what’s going on, you can gently let go and adapt to some more effective ways to handle your situation. If you’d like to do that, continue with this simple Mind Exercise using the Intuitive Learning Circles.

When You’re Stuck in the Past, Change Your Agreements.

Imagine you can gently untie those agreements or burn them in a cleansing fire.

“I decide to let go of worry or negative thoughts about _________ (patiently take it one subject at a time).”

“I let go of behaviors that entangle me with anger and ________. I stop buying into flattery, distractions, lies and ___________.”


Getting UnStuck From the Past

The old paradigm or Piscean Age that we’ve recently left was governed by the element of Water. The way things worked then will not work in the new energy that is governed by Air. Releasing any agreements to stay stuck in the quagmire of stagnant water and emotions will be very helpful:

“I let go of old, heavy, stagnant or destructive flows of Water.”

“I adapt to the lighter, quicker, generative flow of Air.” 


Use Gratitude Rather than Greed:

Worry generally comes from a negative place. You can source from a different place.

“I decide to source my responses from a place of Love and Gratitude rather than greed or vengeance.”

Ask for Help from Your Soul.

Manifesting effectively under this new influence of Air will require many new skills that only a true connection with our Divine Nature will be able to help us with.

“I ask my Soul for help, especially in regards to __________.”

“I connect with the clear electro-magnetic signature of my Soul.”

“I erase signatures & interferences that block integrity, like old graffiti markings. I release them to the Light.”


Gather Up Your Senses to Function Accurately with Your Soul.

Be sure you’re using your senses to correctly assess what’s really going on and the changes you’re going to need to adjust to. Begin by relaxing with this Reiki Chakra Key for a minute or so to connect with your senses and Rational Thought Chakras. They are essential to help you accurately determine what spiritual or physical shifts are necessary and what would be effective.

“I gather up all of my senses and use them to perceive my concerns clearly.”

“I use them to shed light on my blind spots.”
“I use them to discern the difference between helpful and harmful energies.”
I use my senses to discern __________________.”

Toxic Attachments May Keep You Stuck in the Past ~

Various chakras throughout your energy field may be damaged or struggling with negative energies like smoke, chemicals, illness or other attachments that inhibit your health. Use this Key to relax and meditate on for as long as you like. Like a healing balm, imagine that a loving coat of peace and comfort is pouring down over you.

“My chakra system can easily and effectively neutralize interfering energies and detach from them.”


Correct Reversals and Blockages ~

When we’re under extreme stress, it’s not uncommon for the chakras and/or meridians to start running in reverse or shut down entirely. Relax and let this symbol help you make corrections.

“I repair any reversals, holes or blockages affecting my energy system.”

Take all the time you need to let your energy smooth out.


Clear Shadow Energies with an Infusion of Divine Light ~

Radiate light throughout your auric bodies with the full power of the Divine and Angelic Realms. Keep your attention on the strength and beauty of the light rather than the darkness.

Paying too much attention to problems only creates more of them.

Allow the Light from the Creator and your Soul to cleanse and heal you completely from within.

“I ask the Divine to remove attachments, negativity and darkness from my subtle energy field.” 

Do this both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body.

Finish Your Business ~

You’re almost finished now, yet there’s still some business that keeps you stuck in the past. These thoughts keep stinging you for a reason.

What do you still need to realize about your situation? Look at it from a distance. Have you been trying to force something? Do you need to pull your energy back out of a dangerous situation? If so, go ahead and do so with the help of this Circle.

Do you need to find a safer route to your destination?

Most importantly, are you leaving yourself open to negative energies? If so, use this Circle to close them off.

Connect the Hara Lines ~

You may need to repair and/or strengthen hara lines for centering and improved healing. The hara lines are like tiny webs of light that connect the chakras throughout your body. Sometimes they’re broken or damaged because of trauma, illness, toxicity or sudden changes in the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight).
This Circle gives extra energy to the hara lines that connect your chakras.

“I repair and strengthen my hara lines.”
“My chakras are connected properly with my Soul
through a golden web of light.”

This Circle also helps us navigate where we are and to organize our consciousness around being present. “I am inside of my body. Everything else is outside.”


Turn It Around ~

Now it’s time to make sure you’re tapping into positive energy and the new generative energies that are available.

“I decide to tap into positive energies and nurture myself.”

“I am open to being nurtured in new ways.”


Utilize Generative Energy Flow ~

I embrace the new generative flow and use it to support my mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health.” 


Dissolve Destructive Blueprints ~

Use this symbol to help you surrender any mental/emotional patterns that may be blocking positive thoughts, input and outcomes.

Patiently, bring in the Light and let it clear your energy field. Release your thoughts and worry until the darkness is all gone. The Light is transmuting, transforming and completing this stage of your Soul’s journey.


Bring Closure to Old Pathways and Embrace Protection ~

Remember to close the energetic pathways that lead back to suffering.

If those pathways remain open, all kinds of trouble (karma, issues, illness or confusion) can continue to pass back and forth through the opening without your awareness. This can manifest in sudden and mysterious illnesses, mental confusion, issues with prosperity or chronic states of overwhelm.

“I choose healthy closure. I decide to be done with this negativity.”

“All holes, doors or passageways are sealed and healed.”

“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”


Check Back Into Your Mosquito Mind Again ~

Remember the problem you started out this exercise with…

How are you seeing it? Are you still stuck in the past?


Finish With Closing Insights from Your Inner Guidance ~

Is there anything else that you need to know? Is there anything to change or prepare for?


You are learning how to manage your energy effectively in the New Paradigm.
