Nourish A New Perspective Through Butterfly Medicine

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:

Butterfly Medicine from Gifts from the Rainforest

34. Butterfly – butterfly medicine is about nourishing ourselves differently, so that we can care for ourselves properly as we go through changes in our lives.

Are you nourishing yourself correctly? If not, what needs to change?

Healing Action: Metamorphosis. Pay attention to how you are nourishing yourself. Accept nourishment from others. Realize you are no longer who you were.


The Changing Butterfly

The butterfly has successfully transitioned
out of its cocoon.

It must learn to nourish itself
in an entirely new way if it is to survive.

So it is with the humans.
They encounter many metamorphoses
throughout their lives, yet they often forget
that the old ways no longer work.

Consider the changes in your life
and consciously discontinue the old ways
you had of nourishing and being nourished.

Ask for guidance from the butterfly
about this new life you have entered.

What are the necessary changes you must make?

Your vision is hampered by the fact that you have never been in this position before. You are filled with hesitation and doubt because you don’t know what to expect.

Take some time out to play. Old patterns of self-defeat and self-destruction have been healed; now it’s time to get a new perspective based on your current needs. Your past indecision is no longer relevant.

Look at the Circle and make some choices about what is important to you now. Then ask your heart what you would like to make with these new choices and write about it. You may be surprised at what comes out. If your writing is full of contradictions, you will understand more clearly how your ego is trying to sabotage your growth.

Refrain from blocking positive change through doubt or self-criticism. Lift any restrictions you may have put on receiving from others. Trust that creative, nurturing energy is flowing into you in the most appropriate and generous form.

Evaluate How Well You’re Nourishing Yourself in the New Paradigm

Ant Medicine from the North

Facing Your Truth with Ant Medicine

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:

Ant Medicine from Gifts From the Rainforest10. Amazonian ants make slaves of their neighbors. This kind of Ant Medicine serves as a painful reminder of how the flow of love and nurturance can be blocked by “slave maker” patterns of attachment and control. 

Do you feel that someone is trying to get you to do their work for them?
Are you expecting unreasonable help from others?
Either way, are you willing to set things right?

Healing Action:  Free yourself. Detach from harmful energies or people. Let go of your prejudices and disentangle from negative energy, attitudes or obligations.


Northern Ant Wars

Beware the machinations of the warlike mind
as it breeds thoughts of ill-will towards self and others.
It is like an Amazon Ant
who intrudes upon his neighbors
and forces them to work as his slave.
He lives through control and manipulation.
The healthy spiritual ego
aligns itself with true north –
the direction of freedom and respect.
Release all thoughts that are
unmerciful, vengeful, and full of false pride.
Let go of all cords that are connected to others
out of pain, pity or disdain.
Healthy boundaries breed self-respect
and respect for others.

Further Exploration into the Slave Maker Ant Medicine:

Harmful thought patterns could be limiting your freedom. You are being asked to consider the true nature of freedom and whether or not you are allowing it. Stop buying into intrusive thoughts or intentions others may have for you and let go of your own prejudices.

Amazonian Ant
Ant Medicine

Trauma from the past is dominating your reactions. You could be caught in the illusion of separateness, pretending that you are alone and what you do has no effect on others.
Or
You may be caught in a co-dependent relationship where one or both parties feel that they “need” and cannot live without the other. Because of incorrect perception, your energy is blocked and twisted by the need to control your situation.

It’s time to choose freely, without attachment. Exercise free agency to take beneficial actions without allowing others to control the situation. As you look at the Circle, ask these questions and wait for a reply: 

  1. “Who am I feeling sorry for in this situation?”
  2. “Who am I holding in judgement?”
  3. “How am I connecting with others?”
  4. ”How can I let go?”

Use this information to change your behavior and trust the energy of Love to bring you back into balance.
Or
Allow others their own free will and autonomy by detaching from trying to control them. Choose freedom instead.

Early Morning Storm

This Circle is about new beginnings. You are ready to embark on a journey that requires an entirely different way of thinking. The shadows from the past are fading into the background, yet all you would need to do to bring them back full force upon you would be to turn around and pay attention to them. Discipline and compassion for yourself will teach you how to turn these shadows into your greatest strengths.

Or

A fear from the past has become a habit for you and as a result you continue to attract negativity. You can transform your habit into courage with the assistance of nature and this circle. Look at the circle and ask your heart, “Am I in real danger right now in this moment?”

Or

There is magic in rain that falls through the atmosphere when dawn is breaking. Use this power to open your heart and make room for love. Appreciating beauty at this time keeps you focused on what is important and gratitude renews the childlike heart in all of us.

Come From a Grounded Place

How to ADAPT and Come From a Grounded Place in the New Paradigm ~

Many of us are aware that our environment has a lot to do with how well we’re feeling and how easy or difficult it is to come from a grounded place. That’s especially so when we need to communicate or move forward in a genuinely productive way! The energy of the Cosmos is changing radically and we are being called to ADAPT to a new paradigm based on common ground.

Come From a Grounded Place

Feng Shui Deva, Kuan Yin is helping us to find the resources we need to make the transition and come from a grounded place.

If you have noticed any of the following situations when you’re in a certain environment, try this exercise from Navigating Compassion Fatigue, an online resource from our Soul Oriented Solutions series –

SOS - Soul Oriented Solutions
SOS – Soul Oriented Solutions

If you feel like you or your environment are:

  • Ungrounded
  • Overwhelmed by too much stuff
  • Disorganized and confused
  • Unstable, unsafe or explosive
  • Juggling too many things
  • Unproductive – going around in circles
  • A magnet attracting negative energies.

Directions: Confirm this is the best formula for you with the SOS Symbol.

Find a quiet place to sit in the center of your space, where you won’t be disturbed for about twenty minutes. Make sure both of your feet are firmly planted on the floor and that the soles of your shoes wouldn’t prevent you from grounding well.

Begin by reading the first message and then gaze gently at the Circle or chart that goes with it for approximately two minutes. A longer or shorter time may be necessary. Let yourself breathe and relax as much as possible. Don’t worry if the images move around or change in any way. That just means the Circles are working to help you and your environment to come into balance with each other and ground.

Some emotions may come up and when that happens always visualize the heaviness moving up, out and towards the Sun. You may intuitively feel that an object in the space should be moved or removed completely. Trust your instincts. Give yourself permission to let go of anything that could keep you stuck in the old paradigm.


Mind Body Integration

Mind Body Integration - Self-care for lossFor best results, look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of your body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.

Feel free to cross or uncross your arms whenever you intuitively feel you need to!


It helps to know that you can close down many harmful energies that may be running rampant through your body, mind and space.

Divine Protection

Keep this symbol handy to help you identify and close down life-destructive energy channels from the old paradigm. Keep in mind that those energy channels could be found within you or in your space.

Once they are closed, you’ll find that it’s much easier to clear your mind and be open to the generative life force (chi) that we look for in Feng Shui.

In Chinese, Feng Shui means wind water. These are the two elements that move energy for creating life when they are in balance. When they’re out of balance, they can create all kinds of destructive energy patterns – poltergeists, sudden reversals, collapse of protection and stagnancy – just to name a few. Needless to say, the energy channels from the old paradigm are very much out of balance and are creating quite a bit of instability for everyone.

The bottom line is – the sooner we can come from a grounded place in the New Paradigm – based on common ground, the better!

If you need help getting your space grounded, you’re welcome to connect with Rheanni for Feng Shui consulting. You can share some of the experiences you’re having and what you’re noticing about your space. Getting a Feng Shui perspective on your situation could be very useful and help you to make the best decisions about your space and what will help you now.

Once you’ve finished going through the entire exercise, take yourself for a gentle walk in nature or have a soak in a hot bath with Epsom salts or Sea Salt. It’s important to make sure that you’ve cleansed yourself.


Connection
  1. Begin by relaxing while you softly gaze at this Key. Use the following affirmation:

“I choose to relax and open up to my true potential.”

 

Presence 

2. Take some more time to breathe deeply.
 Pay special attention to those places in your body where you are feeling pain or discomfort. 
Consciously send your breath to those places and let them relax.
Stretch if you need to. Open and close your hands. Notice the time and the space around you.

“I am fully present in the New Paradigm.”

Mind Body IntegrationScroll back up to Divine Protection and take a few moments to consciously close down any harmful energy channels in your body or your space.

Do it both crossed and uncrossed over the center line of your body.

 

Receptivity

3. Ask for peace and harmony to come into your heart and awareness.

Consciously move your energy out of your head and pull it down into your heart and solar plexus area.

Old Soul

Once you feel the shift, close down harmful energy channels again. The more relaxed you are, the better this works.

 

Balance

4. You don’t need to be perfect or be everything to everyone.

Could you be holding onto something that doesn’t belong to you or open to something that’s not yours to fix? If so, resolve to let any baggage go and send it to the Light.

You are responsible for yourself and only your part of the situation. What is your part? Shut down any energy channels that are irrelevant or distracting you.

 

Coherence

5. What you do matters and it’s important that you take good care of yourself.  Focus your energy on getting grounded. When you get grounded, you have a positive effect on those around you.

“I pull myself together and get grounded.”

What makes sense to do? What would be genuinely helpful in this situation? Is there something you can do to be genuinely helpful to others?

 

Nourishment

6. To do this effectively, you need a strong connection to a generative life force. You need to take care of yourself and able to ask for help. Go back to your heart and listen to it beating – nice and steady. Affirm to yourself:

“I call on my Spirit to help me get in balance.”

“I am connected and aligned with my highest good.”

Take all the time you need with this.

 

Self-care

7. What else do you need to help you take good care of yourself?

Make a list so you can remember.

 

Change

8. Do you have old intentions or agendas you need to change? You can find them by examining your life and asking yourself, “what’s been working and what hasn’t been working?”

Are you willing to let go of things that are not working?

Release any agreements to hold on.

“I’m willing and able to let go and make the changes necessary for me now.”

 

Realization

9. Keep looking at the Circle while you relax and think of something that you love very much.

Have you been jeopardizing things that matter to you? If you have, what can you do to set it right?

Make note of the ideas that come to you.

 

Clean Up

10. Use this Circle to sweep any confusion or clutter out of your mind and send the debris up to the Sun. In your mind’s eye, sweep it all away!

Notice how much better your body feels when your mind gets clear.

 

REDIRECT

11. Imagine that your Spirit can gently take you by your heart and head. Let it turn you around – toward the direction of your highest good.

Allow a generative flow of life affirming energy to circulate through your body.

 

DECISION

12. Use this Circle to help you close the door on all that clutter and confusion.

Choose to close the doors and seal the leaks as if they were never there.

You probably feel much clearer now.

 

Inner Guidance

13. Take some deep breaths and move your body around again. Let your shoulders drop. Listen to that calm, gentle voice that comes from your heart. What is it telling you?

Old Soul

 

New BeginningS

14. Allow a generative energy to begin in your solar plexus. Feel it moving up into your heart and let it fill up your entire body – all the way to your fingertips. You are creating a new template for a new beginning.

 

Closure

15. Gaze at this symbol and close harmful energy channels that may still be open from all ten directions of the Feng Shui Grid: north, northeast, east, southeast, south, southwest, west, northwest – above and below.

“I close down all harmful energy channels.”

Repeat all directions with this intention: “My mind is open and clear to receive generative life force.”

Remember that the need to unify in common ground is real! The changes are taking place over time and you will likely need to do this exercise repeatedly. Take yourself for a gentle walk in nature or have a soak in a hot bath with Epsom/Sea Salts to cleanse yourself.

Solutions Appear Out of Nowhere with Bat Medicine

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest

Bat Medicine | Animal Totems

#26 Bat – bat medicine is the power of not knowing. When we allow our intuition to guide us, we are open to miracles.

Does your intuition need a boost or redirect in your current situation? If so, what would help?

Healing Action: Tune in to the vibration around you and increase your awareness. Access intuition and special gifts.


Night Vision

The bat has extrasensory powers
that guide him in total blindness.
His intuition is heightened beyond our human experience.
We live in a world of absolutes – we think.
And the natural world around us is
something we think we can control.
Bat knows the falsehood in limited thinking.
Re-source your thinking from that of the
logical mind to the larger mind
that knows all things are possible.
Solutions appear out of nowhere.
Ingenuity transcends the boundaries of time and space.
Bat medicine is the power of not knowing.

Being guided by love is a process of letting go. The things you have done in the past will not work now. Surrendering to your intuition is the best plan. Be willing to change your attitude, because poor attitudes breed poor intuition.

Animals use their senses keenly to find things that will benefit them. Unfortunately, most humans rely far too heavily on only one sense. As a result, we often miss the little details that could make all the difference in how a situation turns out.

Trust your intuition and use vibration to guide you. If the “vibe” around you isn’t right, you will feel it in your gut. Surrender to it and let new ideas fly into your being. You are not as stuck as you think you are.

Sensing the best in any situation requires that you sense the best in yourself. Be open and receptive now for new experiences.

Turn off the Buzzing with Mosquito Medicine

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest

Mosquito Medicine
#22 
Mosquito – mosquito medicine reminds us to stop listening to all the buzzing in our heads so that we can remain focused on our best interests.

Are you listening to harmful thoughts, groupthink or locked into destructive attitudes? If so, what would help?

Healing Action: Calm down your busy mind. Turn off electronics and media for a bit to clear confusion and mob mentality. Meditate.

Mosquito Bites

What could be more irritating than mosquito bites?
They distract us, frustrate us,
and keep us from enjoying where we are.
Our mosquito minds act in much the same way.
Constantly finding a new problem,
a different worry, another misfortune.
And then it bemoans its life,
“Oh! When will this pain ever end?”
Never. If the mosquito mind has its way.
Learn to turn off the buzzing
by becoming still and and listening to your heart instead.

Criticism, judgment, or prejudice within your own mind is keeping you isolated and unable to utilize the help that is being offered. It’s also preventing you from growing in a positive direction.
When your mind is filled with negative thoughts, it isn’t a good time to push yourself further by trying to force your way through. It may be necessary to transform atti- tudes and behaviors if you want to cooperate with the higher wisdom of your Soul.

As you look at the Circle notice the thoughts that keep going through your head. Luckily the Universe is more loving than your ego.
The best thing to do is take it easy so that you don’t burn yourself out. Rush- ing around trying to get things done will probably backfire at this time. Instead, do something special for yourself that will take your attention away from your negative thoughts. What you bring into reality is a choice that you make, based on what you pay attention to.
Or
You are caught in a maze of conflict and contempt that seems to be unending. Chaos is rampant, no one seems to have a solution and common sense is completely absent from the situation. Creative energy is suppressed and opportunity has been shut down.
Instead of focusing on the conflict, look at the Circle and focus on things that bring you joy. Now is one of those times when “faking it till you make it” is one of the best or perhaps the only way out of your predicament. This is not a denial of what is happening – this is acceptance and then making a deliberate choice to focus on the very best, most productive time of your life. Doing so will help you recharge your creative batteries.

Learn to Leave the Poison Behind with Fly Medicine ~

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:

Fly Medicine - Animal Totems

19. Fly medicine warns us when we are revisiting self-destructive habits. It’s better to empower our best interests – health, creativity and life!

Are you getting sucked into a toxic pattern from the past? If so, what will help?

Healing Action: Close off or expel negative manipulative energy. Stand up for yourself and stop enabling the pull of destructive habits.

Fly Right

The fly lives off the waste and garbage
left by others.
This pest brings bacteria and disease with it,
spreading misfortune and death among the living.
Once you have released poison and toxicity
from your system, leave it behind you.
Do not return again to eat from your own garbage.
It is no longer a part of you and you have no need of it,
no matter how familiar it is.
Right action is about inner direction
and doing what is
in your best self-interest.
Your best self-interest is health, life, and creation.
When you see the fly, consider how you
might be needlessly revisiting
self-destructive habits.

A project, a plan or some way of thinking has become a drain to your life force. Stop now and consider what it might be. The Fly is showing up now to let you know that beyond wasting your time, this situation is wasting your energy. Use the Circle to visualize the drain closing down. If you can do this successfully, your energy level will soon return to normal.
Or
Traditional principles around taking care of yourself have been blocked. You may be feeling hopeless and drained. Perhaps your ego is saying that change for the better is too hard, that you aren’t worth taking care of, so why bother? Nothing could be further from the truth.
Whoever first told you that you were not worth taking care of was really just expressing how they felt about themselves by listening to their own ego. When you believe the small mind, you fall back into destructive habits that have caused you no end of sorrow in the past. Fly medicine is here to remind you to avoid the trap by releasing your agreements with those old voices and habits.
Or
You’re having difficulty seeing through all the garbage and realizing there is a way out. Make yourself a priority. Agree to take care of yourself. Seal up those drains and re-direct all that energy to the care and feeding of your Soul!
Or
It may be that you are putting up with abuse from others. If so, it’s time to take courage, speak up and set some healthy boundaries. Once you have accomplished this, never go back. There is nothing there for you.

Open Your Heart and Reunite with Nature

How to Open Your Heart to Rainforest Medicine from Gifts From the Rainforest ~

Open Your Heart through Gifts from the RainforestThere are forty-nine Intuitive Learning Circles™ in Gifts from the Rainforest. Each Circle imparts the teaching and healing medicine of its plant, animal or nature spirit. 

Rheanni Lightwater
Rheanni Lightwater, Author

You can think of them as communication tools to help you access intuition that comes from your Soul.  

Gifts from the Rainforest is the foundational guide for the Intuitive Learning Circle method.


Rainforest PURCHASE OPTIONS



Below is a Transformation Game that will help you open your heart and make friends with the animal, plant or nature spirit helpers in Gifts from the Rainforest.

Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for Hexagram # 59 – Reuniting with Nature.

How can you open your heart to creative, new ideas when the heart of humanity is struggling to find a new way?

When we are in the midst of DANGER, what can be done to reunify us with our “better angels?”

The first thing to consider is what direction are you, personally, heading?

Are you in any kind of danger?

Are you going for revenge and retribution?

Are you immersed in self-pity, self-sabotage or cynicism?

Or, are you willing to look beyond the chaos and open your heart to a more equitable and balanced future? 

I Ching Workbook - R. L. WingIf you are an artist, leader or anyone looking to create positive change, Hexagram #59 REUNITING from The Book of Change provides an excellent Mission Statement:

“Within the Self, the time of REUNITING is directly connected to your spiritual development. You should now renew your inner faith, in whatever way that has meaning for you… Look for the symbols, rhythms, and patterns that have inspired humanity for all times, and incorporate them into your work. Make a sincere attempt to meet the social responsibility of the artist: REUNITING people with their reality.” ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing


Developing a relationship with any of the Helpers in Gifts from the Rainforest is a process that takes time, trust and a sincere intention to ask for and receive their guidance or medicine.

Each Helper has its own medicine, which is explained in the poem and “Further Explanation” sections of the manual. One Helper might have medicine for dealing with difficult people (for example, Parrot #18), while another might help you to focus better, such as Praying Mantis, #6.

The Helpers are like new friends that can really assist you if you’re willing to slow down, open your heart and get to know them. This game will help you to create a healing relationship with whatever Helper you want to get to know next.

Begin by going to Old Sol #49 and reading its message.

Through this Circle, symbolized by the Sun, you can connect with your Higher Self. All the other Circles in this book can only work through your Higher Self or Soul to avoid false guidance.

You will be using “Old Sol” to tell you which Helper would be good to get to know next. You can also use it to confirm guidance that you get or formulate questions and intentions that are important to you.

The next step is to gaze softly at the Circle itself and take several relaxing breaths. It doesn’t really matter what part of the image you’re looking at and it isn’t necessary to figure out what the lines or circles mean. If you find yourself criticizing or doubting yourself, that is your ego trying to interfere with your clear guidance. Just ignore it and bring your attention in to open your heart.

Now that you’ve read the directions, it’s time to ask the question. Look at the Circle and ask your heart:

“Is there an issue or situation that I could use some guidance with right now?”

Old Sol

Answers may come in the form of words, a symbol, an impression or a feeling. What ever comes to you, write it down, even if it doesn’t seem to make sense at first. Also, it’s important to take the the time to listen to your heart. If you’re all up in your head, chasing after thoughts, that’s not really intuition. Gently bring your attention down into your heart area, slow down and listen for quiet, calm messages.


Mind Body IntegrationMind Body Integration

For best results playing a Transformation Game, look at each Circle both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.

If your mind goes blank, go here to clear the blockage.


Once you have an issue, ask Old Sol for a number between one and forty-nine and take the very first number that comes to you. The number you come up with is the number of the Helper and Circle that would be most helpful to you right now. Write the number down, go to that Helper in the book and read about its medicine. Notice if there are any messages that stick out to you.

Next, gaze softly at the Circle (both crossed and uncrossed) and relax. Breathe deeply a few times. Imagine your mind can gather up all the unconscious information it has about this medicine. Now you’re ready to go through the series of Circles in the first section of the game.

Section One: Open Your Heart and Clear Obstacles to Communication

1. Sun #49: To facilitate your connection with your spiritual guidance, keep breathing and gaze with soft eyes at Old Sol while you repeat each affirmation:

“In accordance with my highest good…

Old Soul

… I release all karma or intentions that prevent me from connecting with my Higher Self through my heart.”

“I release all karma or intentions that prevent me from befriending the _________ Helper I have chosen.”

“I release all intentions based on ignorance or harm that would block clear communication.”

 

2. Seed #37: Pretend this Circle is like a communication device. You ask it a question and an answer comes back to you in the form of words, an image, a feeling or a symbol.

This is how you can use the Circles and their Helpers to communicate intuitively with your Soul or Higher Self. Try it out by asking the Seed Helper:

“What is preventing me from following the true guidance of the __________ Helper?”

Make a note of your answers. At this point the answer(s) may or may not make sense to you yet, so just write them down and continue.

 

3. Alligator #3: Now it’s time to uncover whatever thought processes, emotions or behaviors that are blocking a helpful connection. Look into the Intuitive Learning Circle for Alligator and ask the following questions one at a time:

“Can I tell what’s blocking me?”

“Is the blockage a behavior? A habit? An attitude?”

“Is it emotional?”

“Is it conceptual?”

“Is it an attachment?”

“Is there more than one thing blocking me? If so, what are they?”

“Am I perceiving this situation correctly and truthfully?”

4. Snake #7: Read the messages that come from the Snake Helper, and then look at its Circle. What sticks out in your mind? Is there any part of it that catches your attention? If so, write it down because that phrase or idea has important information that could help you understand more about what’s blocking you.

 

Once you’ve done that, look at the Circle and ask your heart:

“How would my life be better if I were friends with the ________ Helper I have chosen?”

Again, write your answer down.

5. Raccoon #11: Many of the Circles work with the nervous system to help you release negative, unproductive agreements and harmful obligations that you might still be reacting to even though you aren’t consciously aware of them. Raccoon is the primary animal totem that handles Soul contracts.

What is a Soul contract? Soul contracts deal with lessons you have agreed to experience on a Soul level so that you can experience who you are more deeply. If a person has completed the lesson, they can move on to other experiences. However, the nervous system will keep repeating the lesson until the person has consciously released the contract and integrated the lesson into their consciousness.

Many times, the ego resists completing the lesson and letting the contract go. Why? Because the ego likes to remain in control through drama, pain, suffering and codependency.

The Raccoon Helper is very powerful because its medicine can bypass the ego and go directly to the nervous system and release completed contracts. Look at the Raccoon Circle and go through this list of potential agreements that might get in the way of clear and honest communication:

A. “I release all agreements, contracts, allegiances, obligations or vows that prevent me from communicating clearly with my Higher Self.”

B. “I release all agreements, contracts, allegiances, obligations or vows that prevent me from communicating clearly with the true spirit of the __________ Helper.”

C. “I release all agreements with lies, deception, hostility or false guidance.”

D. “I release all agreements, contracts, allegiances, obligations or vows that prevent me from benefiting from and utilizing the medicine of the _________ Helper.”

Releasing contracts and agreements of this kind significantly loosens the grip that the ego has on your mind and body. Energy can begin to move differently for you now and negative patterns are more easily changed to benefit you. Use this Soul Prayer Chart for Divine Connection to help you.

“My Heart is open. My Soul is in charge and I am empowered to make friends with this Helper.”

“Working toward common goals will greatly benefit your inner strength; there is no regret in such selflessness.” ~ Line 3 from Hexagram #59 REUNITING: The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

Now it’s time to dissolve mental and emotional patterns that keep you at odds with yourself and your new friend. Use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to identify and disperse any harmful personal, societal or familial patterns that have come up in this process. See them disappear like old cloud banks dissolving into pure sunlight:

“I dissolve all destructive patterns that keep me from reuniting with the truth.”

Once the patterns are cleared, give your heart and Soul some relief through closure.

“All pathways of guilt, blame, suffering and confusion are sealed and healed. I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

Excellent! When you open your heart and reunite with Nature, you are accessing communication with your Soul that offers profound truths and transformation.

Now is a good time to test how well this game has opened up your relationship with your Helper. Go to the Helper that you chose and think about the issue or problem that you wrote down at the beginning of the game. Come up with a simple question, look at the Circle for your Helper and ask it. What answer(s) do you get? Write them down and follow through if needed. 

Tips for asking the totems questions and receiving guidance: 

• Keep your question simple and about one thing at a time. 

• If you don’t get an answer, it may mean that your mind is fixated on a person, an event or something from the past. Mental fixations usually happen because of some kind of emotional or spiritual trauma. If that happens, go to Condor #32, and let its medicine help you to release the fixation. You will know the fixation is cleared when you can come up with an answer to your question. 

• Once you have an answer to your first question, do you have other, related questions you can ask? Go ahead and ask them. 

• Once you’ve finished, put the book aside. Now is a good time to rest, get out into nature, take a walk or otherwise refresh yourself. Allow the answer to percolate while you are doing something else.

Extra Help from The Essential Human

The Essential Human* If you have a copy of The Essential Human, now would be a good time to use Future Pacing on page 140 to help you project a preferred relationship with this Helper out into the future. Choose new ingredients from The Essential Human #1 – 42. Use this affirmation:

“I release harmful ingredients and access beneficial ingredients. I am friends with this Helper.”

Congratulations! Going through this introductory game has helped you to identify and release the ideas, behaviors and beliefs that are getting in the way of good guidance that comes from yourSoul. Now is a good time to go for a walk or get out into Nature so you can integrate what you’ve learned.

How To Access Common Sense

This Mind Exercise is about how to access common sense. 

How to Access Common SenseLet’s start with some words about common sense* that I like to remember:

Common Sense is good sense and judgement based on verifiable experience or repeated observation of the facts, not just because someone said so. When someone says, “something is so, because I say it is,” that is not common sense.

When a person’s common sense is out of balance, they’re more interested in looking good than anything else. They have poor boundaries and are more concerned about how they are being perceived than they are with facts. The thought process is externally driven (peer pressure), not internally developed and checked against the facts.

If a person accepts a judgement as truth from a second or third party without any personal verification, it’s actually an assumed agreement or conditioning. Learning without verification can be very dangerous. An example of this would be prejudice against someone you have never met. Someone told you this person, group or activity is untrustworthy. It may be true or it may not. Without verifiable evidence, common sense is lacking.

What can be done about common sense that’s out of balance?

A good place to start is to access your senses. Everyone has a “blind spot.” For some reason, we’ve been conditioned to turn a blind eye to certain things. See if you can remedy some of that by gazing softly at this Reiki Chakra Key, together with these positive affirmations:

“I reclaim and balance my five senses.”

“I use them to be present and make sense of my current conditions and environment.”

“I use them to become aware of helpful resources, solutions and opportunities.”

“I focus on behavior that supports good common sense and integrity.”

 

Next, release your agreement with any unverifiable prejudices. These may have been planted deeply in your unconscious mind by your family, religion and society, even your dearest friends. Oh, and be sure to include the media!

Use this Intuitive Learning Circle™ to help you find unconscious prejudices in your mind and uproot them:

“I unearth unverified assumptions, prejudices or agreements that prevent me from having good, common sense.”

“I uproot the resistance I have to verify the facts and question what I’ve been conditioned to believe.”

“I uproot the need for approval and the belief that I have to agree with what I’m told in order to survive.”

What else would you like to uproot?


To teach genuine common sense, a good teacher shows by example or demonstration. True common sense can prevent fascism, slavery and abuse. It instills personal integrity, plus things just work better when they make sense.

*from Learning in the New Paradigm by Rheanni Lightwater: Mind Exercises to realign different aspects of your learning abilities to focus on “balance” or  “joy”, rather than “perfection.”


To have your own experience with how to access common sense, let’s go through this simple series of Intuitive Learning Circles™. They’ve been put together to help you relax, contemplate the nature of common sense and integrate the information.

All you have to do is read the instructions and then follow through on the directions while you gaze softly at each Circle.


mind Body IntegrationAn important note ~ 

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.


How to Access Common Sense

Common Sense and the Third Eye ChakraStep One: Gaining insight through common sense works with having good intuition. Allow the Reiki Chakra Key below to open and balance your Third Eye energy center. The affirmations will help you focus your intention:

“I balance my inner vision with good common sense. I free my mind to focus on inspiration that makes the most sense in this situation – based on verifiable evidence.” 

Step Two: Slow down. Both intuition and common sense are more accessible when you’re not in a hurry or trying to do too many things.

“I slow down and pay attention to what’s happening now.”

It will help to imagine you can bring all the energy into focus on the center, open space of each Intuitive Learning Circle™.

Step Three: You might sense a blockage or your mind may go blank. That’s okay. Let this Circle soften your rigid thoughts. Allow them to melt, move and dissolve away. Do this both crossed and uncrossed until the blockage is cleared.

Now, without censoring yourself, what would you like to do?

Feel free to move around or take a walk to get in some steps. Using the body helps your mind to integrate new ideas!

Step Four: Let your senses get balanced. Some may be turned up too high and some too low. You can imagine them like a ring of lights orbiting around your waist, casting light and awareness on the world around you.

Adjust them like a radio dial until the level feels just right.

Be sure that your lights are focused on sensing joy – not on what someone else wants you to pay attention to!

Step Five: Surround those lights with a ring of protection and strength.

“I am safe and protected. I have the courage to change my perspective.”

Truth Mandala
PLUG INTO TRUTH

Step Six: Resonate with the power of your Soul to separate yourself from lies, confusion and manipulations.

Consciously “unplug” from lies and manipulations at your solar plexus and then plug into truth.

Be sure to do that while looking at this Circle both crossed and uncrossed!

Step Seven: In this quieter, clearer mind space, think of a decision you are unclear about and would like to apply some common sense to – something that isn’t making sense to you right now.

Or you can ask: “What makes sense to do next?” If you are unclear, this would be a perfect situation to experiment with.

Step Eight: Continue your inquiry,  “How can I put it all together so that it makes sense?” Bring your thoughts in toward the center, blank space. This could take some time. Listen for the answer. What is your inner guidance?

Intuition combined with common sense is often simpler and more straightforward than most people are comfortable with. Let go of the three C’s – complication, convolution and conspiracy. Be patient and let your mind sift through the possibilities.

Step Nine: Balance your senses again and ask yourself:

“What makes the most sense?”

Once you get a heartfelt answer, Congratulations! Be sure to write down what you came up with. The critical mind often doesn’t like to remember the quieter, gentler vision of intuition combined with common sense.

Extra-intuitive Activities

The following extra-intuitive activities aren’t required, but they can help you excel in creating the very best of your talents, interests and passions…

Improving Brain Chemistry for Better Common Sense

We are more likely to make good sense of things when our brains have a balanced chemistry. Chakra healing can help. Let’s see what happens when we allow the chakras of important parts of our brains to let go of toxic chemicals that might be impairing our thinking and how we access common sense.

Gaze softly at the Essential Chakra Key with this intention:

“Accurate messages are transferred between my brain and spinal cord.”

Next, gaze at this Chakra Key with the intention:

“My left and right brain communicate accurately with each other.”

Sometimes we have “the sense knocked out of us” physically. Trauma like that can affect all kinds of thought processes.

“My focus, balance and stability are in place.”

Use this Circle to help you appropriately reconnect any chakras that have disconnected due to accident, injury or violence.

“My communication lines are connected.”

“I make sense of things.”

“Reliable communication has resumed throughout my nervous system.”

Some parts of your brain can anticipate pain and overreact with highly charged emotional responses. Allow them to gently release and let go with this intention:

“I am safe and calm. All is well.”


Application

Go back to Step Seven at the beginning of this exercise and review the decision you were considering.

“What makes good sense to do next?”

INTEGRATION

Imagine that you can release any negative karmic patterns you may have around peer pressure or needing to look good. Send any chaos or confusion up to the Sun.

Next, access your beneficial karma for having good common sense. Gather your good deeds into the center, blank area of this Circle.

“I access my beneficial karma for actualizing good and balanced common sense.”

beneficial karma

Completion

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 ground common sense in the New Paradigm.”

Ask yourself:

“How does it feel to access good common sense, based on verifiable experience or repeated observation of the facts?”

Congratulations!

You can thank yourself for taking the time today to learn how to access common sense and good judgement – a gift that will make your life a whole lot better!

Bring the energy of gratitude and appreciation in towards you in the center.

Closure for Mind Body HealingFinish 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.”

“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

Be sure to rest now and do something nice for yourself!
