Ove whelm Help
Many of us are completely exhausted by recent events – overwhelmed by the uncertainty and suspended by the sheer amount of change that keeps going back and forth, back and forth. You might be 
experiencing any symptoms like the ones below. Are you feeling: 

SOS - Soul Oriented Solutions
SOS – Soul Oriented Solutions
  • Exhausted 
  • Overwhelmed
  • Confused
  • Out of balance
  • Taking on too much
  • Doing too much
  • Going too fast and need to slow down?

If so, you are not alone and you can easily get some relief by going through the Overwhelm Help Exercise #3 out of SOS for Loss & Resiliency, from our Soul Oriented Solutions series.

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

Find a quiet place if possible, where you won’t be disturbed for about twenty minutes. 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 and that your mind and body are coming into balance. 

Some emotions might come up as well. That also means the Circles are working. Just give yourself permission to let go of anything that’s causing you pain or suffering. 

Mind Body Integration

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

Make a list so you can remember.

 

Compassion

7. Focus your energy on taking good care of yourself now. You are important and what you do matters. People care about you.

What would be genuinely helpful in this situation?

Is there something you can do to be genuinely helpful to others?

 

Realization

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

Can you let yourself feel what matters to you?

Just keep letting yourself relax. Loose and limp.

Take all the time you like. It’s okay to rest.

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

 

Clarity

Close the doors and seal the leaks as if they were never there.

You probably feel much clearer now.

Listen to that calm, gentle voice that comes from your heart. What is it telling you? 

Old Soul

 

New Beginnings

Managing Anxiety Amidst Collective Fear

SOS – Self-care for Managing Anxiety  ~

Rheanni Lightwater - Managing Anxiety
Rheanni Lightwater, Hypnotherapist & Reiki Master Teacher

Managing AnxietyThis formula from Soul Oriented Solutions uses affirmations with the Intuitive Learning Circles to help when you are managing anxiety that may come about because you are:

  • Picking up on anxiety around you
  • Getting anxious about an important decision
  • Being pulled in too many directions
  • Overstimulated or feeling under attack
  • Feeling dizzy, scattered or overwhelmed
  • Unable to follow through due to anxiety.

If any of those experiences sound like you and you’re open to trying something new to calm your mind, body and spirit, Welcome!

Managing Anxiety Amidst Collective Fear ~

Whenever a person is feeling anxiety, it’s usually related to whatever level of uncertainty they are experiencing. In normal times, managing anxiety has been a personal matter and has to do with being okay with not knowing what’s going to happen.

However, due to the pandemic and other social, environmental challenges, we are all experiencing existential levels of disorientation and uncertainty – even threats – which in turn increases our collective levels of anxiety. None of us knows what’s going to happen next! Whether it be how to interact with our social networks, following new procedures or handling economic stress, being able to focus our attention on something positive may simply seem out of the question.

Managing AnxietyThese feelings can come on suddenly and be extremely visceral! For example, just today, I was sitting down to make a plan and my partner came home suddenly very agitated about a situation at work. As he was talking, my thoughts started to spin, which, in turn, elevated the emotions I was feeling. Then, my breathing got shallow and my heart began to race.

In a matter of moments, I had gone from neutral to being scattered in a tempest of collective emotions: fear, distress, anxiety… and who knows what else!

Fortunately, because I’ve always been more sensitive to these sorts of experiences, I knew to quickly release my agreement to buy into it. Then, when I had more time, I went through this centering exercise to pull myself out from the malaise and center myself in the present again.

Please note: Managing Anxiety Amidst Collective Fear is not intended to take the place of appropriate medical or psychotherapeutic care. If you are having serious symptoms contact your healthcare provider immediately.

If you would like to try the process out for yourself, set aside about twenty to thirty minutes. Start by reading the directions: Gaze at each Circle for approximately two minutes. A longer or shorter time may be necessary. Let yourself breathe and relax as much as possible.

Here’s an example of how the Intuitive Learning Circles can help you restore balance when you’re managing anxiety:

Gaze softly at the Circle for a minute or so while you contemplate the positive affirmations that go with it:

managing anxiety“I bring my senses into balance.”

“I focus them so that I can feel calmer and concentrate on what’s important.”

“I use them to help me be more aware of my surroundings and what I’m doing.”

“I focus on thoughts and actions that are genuinely beneficial.”

The Circle may seem to move, spin or even change color. That means that it’s working. Just keep breathing and let the energy move. Once it calms down, your emotional state may improve as well. Then you’ll be ready to continue with the exercise.


Mind Body Integration

Mind Body Integration - Self-care for loss

The brain and body communicate through different channels when a part of you is crossed over the center of your body. 

For 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 move at anytime in any way to help you embody your experience!


Managing Anxiety

The goal of this formula is to help you slow down and pull your thoughts together so that you can get your energy back into balance quickly and easily.

Step One: Clarity

Breathe in and exhale. Gently gaze at the Circle and affirm to yourself:

“It’s beneficial for me to be aware of energies that are not mine and expel them.”

“I organize my body and mind to have healthy boundaries
and strong protection.”

“Taking good care of myself is important.”

 

Step Two – Balance

The Balance Chakra is located on your Sacrum, better known as your Tail Bone. When this energy center is in balance, it’s much easier to connect with stability and the natural flow of life or “the Tao,” as it’s called in the Ching.

It may feel like you’re all off balance or whirling like a top. Keep breathing and let this Circle help you get more balanced again.

Relax and settle into your chair. Pay special attention to your tailbone while you let it relax and unwind.

 

Step Three – Protection

Continue to breathe and put yourself in a mental landscape that’s very safe, calm and peaceful.
You are completely protected here.

Let your mind imagine a soft breeze gently blowing busy or anxious thoughts away like leaves, swirling up and disappearing into the Sun.

 

Step Four ~ Clarity

Let this Circle help you turn the volume down on your senses. They could be turned up too high. You can calm down and see things as they are in the present. Move if you need to. Let your shoulders drop.

“I can see the light in a dark situation.”

A nice side benefit to balancing your senses in this way is noticing that you feel more balanced and your emotions are calming down. Practice both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body.

“I enjoy this calm sensation and remember it.”

 

Step Five – Slow Motion

Your mind might be hurried, spinning or frenzied, so let this Circle help you imagine that everything’s slowing down. 
It’s okay to slow down… moving in slow motion.


Again, do that both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body. If you like, you can imagine a ball of string slowly unwinding.

 

Step Six – Trust

Managing Anxiety in your gutLet your belly relax where your ribs go up in the front.
It’s okay for you to relax there and breathe as deeply as you want.

Get yourself centered and balanced.

It’s okay for you to just be. Things are getting sorted out now.

 

Step Seven – Release

Help your body to release physical and emotional toxins by relaxing with this Chakra Key that improves the function of your kidneys. Use this positive affirmation:

“Letting go is a relief.”

 

Step Eight – Steadfast

Use this Circle to focus in on your heart.
Your heartbeat is steady and getting calmer by the minute.

“I am okay.”

 

Step Nine – Breath

Let this Circle help you open up your breath now.
Your lungs work together with your heart to keep oxygen flowing through you.

“I’m breathing in the breath of life and exhaling _____________.”

 

Step Ten – Equilibrium

It’s important to keep breathing.
Your diaphragm works together with your heart and lungs to help you breathe.
You really are okay. Your breathing is okay.

“I breathe deeply into my belly and resonate with the breath of life.”

 

Step Eleven – Resolution

As you gaze at this Circle, you can deactivate the overstimulated parts of your brain. Just keep breathing and say to yourself:

“I am calming down. Everything is relaxing.”

 

Step Twelve – Integration

Hara lines are like tiny webs of light that connect the chakras. Sometimes they are broken due to trauma, toxicity or sudden changes in the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight).

“The hará lines between my chakras are healed and connected, like a golden web of light.”

“I organize my consciousness around healthy boundaries and strong protection from my Soul.”

 

Step Thirteen – Synchronize with Your Heart Center

Gaze softly at the Key and allow your heart center to open, relax and expand. You can even imagine a warm energy radiating out of the center of your chest and as that light moves out, you find that all kinds of anxiety, sorrow and heaviness is easily released to the Sun. Letting go – recycling into new life and inspiration.

“My heart chakra is letting go of harmful patterns so that it can synchronize with health, happiness and positive life flow.”

 

Step Fourteen – Emotional Freedom

Dissolve your connection to the mental and emotional unhappiness that’s behind our collective anxiety. Use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to clear the patterns from your mental continuum. Visualize them like dark clouds dissolving and dissipating into pure Sunlight. 

“I dissolve destructive patterns that interfere with my health and happiness. I release them to the Light to be purified.”

 

Step Fifteen – Closure

Close the pathways or doors in your mind that lead back to collective anxiety and fear.

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 a sudden return in mental confusion, anxiety or chronic states of overwhelm.

“I choose to take good care of myself mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.”

“All pathways that lead back to suffering are sealed and healed.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

 

Step Sixteen – Embrace Protection On Your New Path

Allow this Soul Prayer Chart to help you close down any harmful energy channels from the old paradigm and tap into the generative energy flow of the New Paradigm instead.

“I follow the direction of Divine Protection.”

“My mind is open and clear to receive generative life force.”

Divine Protection for Managing Anxiety

 

Step Seventeen – Ground and Center in the Present

In order to actualize the full benefits of this process, put both feet on the ground and let this Circle help you get grounded in a new paradigm of equality, cooperation and sustainable prosperity. 

 

Congratulations! Going through this formula has set you up to be more resilient and aligned to face the challenges of our times successfully!

Consider taking a brisk walk or exercising to help discharge your excess energy. When you’re ready, see if you can take action on some new solutions that come to mind.

Self-care for Loss In Uncertain Times

Soul Oriented Solutions: A Gentle Meditation about Emotional Stress and Self-care for Loss ~

Self-care for LossMany people are experiencing deep levels of anxiousness, distress and fear around our current situation due to a variety of events. These feelings can come on suddenly and
be very overwhelming. You might have lost a relative, a job or an important friendship. You could be facing a health challenge or even a loss in your purpose and sense of self.  Or, you may be sitting on the sidelines, watching someone you love suffer while you feel at a loss for something helpful to do. In situations like these, it can take a while to regain your balance. What are some ways to provide self-care for loss and bring some level of emotional relief?

If you can find a way to tune into your deepest resources, you’ll discover that you’re never completely alone, even in your darkest hours.

Rheanni Lightwater CHT, CKP Self-care for LossSOS - Self-care for LossTo help out, I’d like to share this brief formula that uses positive affirmations and the Intuitive Learning Circles. You can use it whenever you are:

  • Stressed over a lost job or income
  • Grieving a loss of any kind
  • Feeling pulled into a negative state of mind
  • Recovering from an abusive experience – past or present
  • Dealing with a serious or long-term illness
  • Preparing for surgery
  • Coming to terms with tragedy, loss or death.

Here’s an example of how the Circles can help you restore balance.

Simply gaze softly at the image while you contemplate the positive affirmations that go with it for for a minute or so. Relax and breathe:

“I bring my senses into balance.”

“I focus them so that I can feel calmer and more aware of what’s important.”

“I use my senses to be more aware of where I am and what I’m doing.”

“I focus on thoughts and actions that are genuinely helpful and productive.”

 

Next, you can continue Self-care for Loss by allowing this Reiki Chakra Key to provide chakra healing to your heart center. It helps to put both feet flat on the floor and place your hands on your heart while you gaze at the symbol.  Here’s a a couple of suggested affirmations:

“I am filled with compassion for the suffering of myself and others.”

“I open my heart to courage and the possibility of healing.”

Strong emotions or insights may come up. The image may move, rotate, vibrate or change color. Don’t worry. That happens sometimes. It just means it’s working to help you feel better. Once the energy calms down a bit, you can move on to the remaining Circles with each of their affirmations to continue the process.

Your heartfelt intention is important and needs to be communicated. Use this Reiki Chakra Key to help you connect your prayers with your heart. Focus in on the Master Chakras located on each hand between the thumb and the index finger and let them get open and balanced. Then, imagine you can connect them with your heart. These affirmations can help:

“My prayers are connecting with my heart center.”

“I ask to receive guidance, clarity and healing from my Inner Wisdom.”

You might want to journal some of your thoughts so that you can speak with a trusted counselor or friend about what comes up. If so, get out some paper and something to write with as you go through the steps.

Self-care for Loss

Step One: Asking for Help

Breathe in deeply, all the way to your belly while you look at this Circle. 

If you could ask for something that would help you feel better, what would that be? Place your request in the center, open space of this Circle and imagine you can send your breath to it.

 

Step Two – Support

Imagine that you can bring healing and release into all parts of your body, mind and spirit while you continue to breathe.

Miracles - Self-care for Loss

 

Step Three ~ Peace

What do you think is the main difficulty or burden you’re dealing with right now?
Are you ready to let go of that burden and find a solution? 
If not, why not?

 

Step Four – Release

 If you can, imagine that difficulty or burden is beginning to melt and soften up. You can release the tension around anything that’s bothering you right now. Your shoulders are dropped. Your jaw is relaxed. Hardened thoughts are melting.

Keep melting the tension until it’s all gone.


Remember to do that both crossed and uncrossed.

 

Step Five – Soul Vision

Consider what your life could be without this difficulty. What would it be like if those burdens were lifted? Can you imagine it?

Sense the experience as much as you can in detail. See it, hear it, taste it, smell it and feel it.

 

Step Six – Remove Your Burdens

Imagine that you can send all those burdens to where ever they need to go to resolve themselves. Feel the heaviness lifting up and off of you.

You have done the best that you can under the circumstances.

 

Step Seven: Inner Guidance

Gently contemplate this symbol to help you gain insight and spiritual direction about appropriate things to do in this situation.

Imagine you can call upon Love to help heal the situation. Is there something that Love would tell you to do?
Ask to be instructed by Love as you continue along your journey.

 

Step Eight – Balance

Breathe again.
Feel a calmness coming over you.
You feel calmer and calmer with every breath.

 

Step Nine – Cleansing

Send away any illness, pain or fear that you’re experiencing. Send it to the Sun or wherever it needs to go to heal.

 

Step Ten – Comfort

Continue to let go and allow your energy to repair itself. 

It is not necessary to hold on to any worries, tension or negativity.

 

Step Eleven: Divine Connection

Fill yourself with strength and the knowledge that you are loved. 

You are filled with a Divine Connection to your Spirit. 

 

Step Twelve: Closure

In your minds eye, close the doors to any pathways that keep the pain and suffering open. You are connected through Love now and will always be. 

Let this healing be sealed with Love and Light.

Step Thirteen:  Divine Blessings

Let yourself rest now. You might feel tired or sad. That’s okay. It means that you’re feeling safe enough to really let go and rest.

Your mind is open and clear to receive healing and generative life force.

 

Some people have gotten a lot of extra support out of going through this self-care for loss formula every day for twenty-one days. It helps to retrain your mind to think more positively and keep you on track toward recovery.

Learning How to Change

Are You Changing with the Changes?

If you’re like most of us, you’re overwhelmed by the speed and amount of  confusing changes taking place. One day, it feels like life is moving forward and then, in a flash, conditions are completely changed! What do we need to learn to know how to change with all these changes?

Transformation Game - How to ChangeWhether you’re feeling anxious about the increase in violence and erratic behavior, health, finances, the environment, relationships or your work situation – the underlying fabric of society is undergoing radical transition and the old lines of communication are down. The false security of the “good old days” is gone and new ways to handle just about everything need to take form. It’s no wonder that so many of us are feeling more emotional than usual. Under these conditions, it’s easy to get pulled into a hole of frustration and negativity. Our bodies are worn out and our minds are torn in a hundred directions!   

The 64 Hexagrams in the I Ching or Book of Change have much to teach us about the importance of being flexible and knowing how to change. 

For example, Hexagram #41 DECLINE says: “The pendulum swings once again, this time moving into a general DECLINE. Although the DECLINE points to the beginning of a later flowering, the way you handle this current decrease in resources is of great importance. This decrease is in accordance with the forces in the cosmos and therefore perfectly natural and completely unavoidable. You will ultimately benefit, however, from any sacrifices you must now make.

In Hexagram #29 DANGER, the text says, “Acting with integrity and confidence is the key to surmounting the DANGER… In personal relationships, do not allow passions to lead you into peril. If the difficulties cannot be resolved without sacrificing your principles, the relationship may be irresolute.”

In Hexagram #49 CHANGING, the ancient text states: “The forces at work in the situation are in conflict, leaving the path open to change. Yet the work of bringing about such a change is as difficult as it is important. People fear change because of its unknowable effect upon the future; … Clarity, forethought, and great devotion are now required to achieve your purpose.”

Transformation Game: Learning How To Change in a Changing World.

You can discover how to change more gracefully while keeping your integrity by going through this Transformation Game. When you slow down and take the time to go within, you can gain a deeper understanding of what you’re really struggling with. Not only that, you can find the motivation to change how you’re responding in a more effective way!

Directions: Simply gaze at the Circle while contemplating the positive affirmations. Breathe deeply and allow yourself to relax as much as possible.

“I reclaim and balance my rational senses.”

“I focus them to be present and keep tuning into my body to monitor what I’m needing.”

“I use them to notice my environment so I can respond appropriately.”

“I focus on actions that benefit my health, happiness and  ____________.”


An important note about Mind Body Integration ~ 

Retrain Your Mind for Mind Body IntegrationThe brain and body communicate through different channels when a part of you is crossed over the center of your body. As you work with the Circles, cross and uncross a hand or foot over the midline of your body. Use a soft focus and breathe patiently. This will help you access more information from your unconscious mind. Let any negative self-talk go by breathing through it.

Feel free to move at anytime in any way to help you let go!


Once you feel ready, see if you can slow down and let yourself focus on your true priorities. Ask for true spiritual guidance that comes from within.

“I slow down and breathe while I clear my mind. I turn my attention to what matters most.”

Gently, notice the specific areas of your life that are changing rapidly and need some extra help.

Next, notice the areas  that feel stuck, closed off or even going in reverse. How would you describe these things?

You might want to get out a pen and paper to make note of some of the impressions you get.

 

“I ask my Inner Wisdom for assistance about what needs to change and how to do it in the most positive way.”

What needs to happen?

 

Bring your attention to the center of your chest. Let your heart be involved in this conversation.

 

Empower your ability to choose in this situation.

“I exist and what I do matters.”

“I can respond to this situation in a productive and helpful way.”

“I bring myself into alignment with my highest good.”

 

Now you’re ready to go through the rest of the game in the same way by asking yourself questions while you gaze softly at each accompanying Circle. Doing so will help you assess where you’re at. Take your time, the answers might not come right away. The Circles are helping your mind to clear away mental and emotional resistance to change.

“In this particular situation, how am I dealing with change?

Is that working for me? Is there something I need to change about how I’m dealing with the situation? Am I doing the best I can?” 

Animal Totems for Inner Guidance - Raven

Am I stuck on something? Shut down? Unwilling? Is it possible that I’m being too hard on myself? What is the concern?”

 

If you’re stuck, you might be able to deal with it fairly easily by using Condor Medicine to clear conflict, resistance and fixated thinking.  

Imagine that you can use the Circle like a bull’s eye to send healing energy to any conflicts or fixations you may be experiencing. Let go by imagining that the lines are going all limp and loose like spaghetti noodles. Or, you can imagine an iceberg melty away under the Sun.

Either way, be gentle with yourself. If you’re judging yourself too harshly, use the Circle to help you loosen up those rigid thoughts. If you’re shut down, use the Circle to bring your energy back to life! If you need to open up to creativity or dissolve toxic emotions, see yourself doing that. Move around in any way that you like.

 

Continue with your investigation about how to change…

“Am I internalizing negative experiences from the past?”

You can usually tell if you’re internalizing something because you’ll start to feel physical, mental, emotional or even spiritual irritation. If that’s happening, see if you can stop taking it personally and let it go. 

“I surrender this situation to the Light and turn to more positive ways of dealing with experiences.”

 

There is no doubt that what we’re going through is hard. The best thing we can do in difficult situations is to think about what we can learn from it.
“The most important take away for me in this situation is ________.”
“I am learning ____________.”
Be sure to write this down.

For a much deeper integration, trace around the Circle clockwise with your eyes, both uncrossed and crossed, while you consider your take away thought.

Then, do the same as you trace your eyes around the square in the same direct, both crossed and uncrossed.

How To Change our Experiences – Choose New Ingredients

If we keep choosing ingredients from the past, the soup we call our lives will keep repeating itself over and over.  For example, if we were born into a family that keeps choosing shame or blame, we will be liable to keep choosing those ingredients ourselves until we can become conscious of what we’re doing. If we want to change the flavor of our soup, it will help to change the ingredients we’re using.

By choosing ingredients such as self-worth, self-love or self-confidence we can learn how to change and create a better future.

The Essential Human*Note: if you have an updated copy of The Essential Human, you might want to go through Future Pacing (on page 140). Choose from the archetypes #1 – 42 to help you choose beneficial “ingredients” for creating your life. Ask yourself:
“What ingredients am I choosing? Are there some ingredients that I would like to change?”

“I release harmful ingredients and access beneficial ingredients instead.”

 

New Agreements

Next, imagine that you can release any old agreements, assumptions or obligations that are keeping you stuck. Visualize them like contracts, burning up into nothingness with a violet flame. Here are some suggestions:

“I let go of outdated agreements that keep me stuck in old patterns or to take on someone else’s conflict as my own.”

“I let go of being controlled by emotions or dumped on by anyone or anything.”

“I let go of the need to hold onto anyone or anything harmful in this situation.”

“I let go of my resistance to ________. I detach from ________. I remove myself from ________.” Etc.

 

New Decisions

Make some new decisions that support how to change more appropriately. Here are some suggestions: “I choose to see this situation in a positive light.” or… “I am capable and my Spirit helps me to handle change… I am free to change in accordance with my highest good… I allow other people the space to handle their own issues…”, etc.

 

Renewed Presence

Connect with the Third Chakra at your Solar Plexus and let it open up. Relax and let the tightness go. Deep breathing and presence are your best friends in times of accelerated change! Move around or stretch if you like.

 

Courage and Confidence

Keep breathing and give yourself a good dose of courage with the help of Jaguar Medicine:

“I surround myself with courage, confidence and strength.”

 

Imagine that Seed Medicine can help you find any seeds you’re holding that are causing you harm. They might not even be yours! It’s time to set things right. Send them to the Light so they can return to wherever they belong.

Reclaim whatever is yours – your ideas, your power, your own beneficial seeds of karma. Bring them home and nurture them gently.

 

Now it’s time to dissolve your connection to any underlying abuse, confusion or conflict. Use this symbol for Dissolving Destructive Blueprints and allow the Light to pull them off of you.

“I let go of the mental, emotional and spiritual connections I still have to these patterns.”

Take your time and visualize them disappearing like dark clouds into the Light!

 

Once they are completely gone, seal and heal all leaks, holes or pathways that lead to back to any resistance or unnecessary suffering:

“All holes are sealed and healed. I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

 

Are you grounded in the New Paradigm of cooperation and sustainable prosperity? If not, put your feet flat on the ground and let your energy organize around it now.

Congratulations!

It’s rarely easy to make changes of this magnitude, but once you know how to change with the changes, rather than fighting against them, your situation is bound to improve! The I Ching leaves you with this thought:

“Remove discordant elements as they appear, throw out outmoded or stifling policies when they once again create problems, and establish far-reaching clarity about the future whenever the opportunity presents itself.” ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

Creating Internal Safety

Learn How You Can Tap Into Your Second Chakra for Creating Internal Safety in Your Environment ~

The 2nd Chakra Is Deeply Connected with how well we Nurture and protect ourselves.

Primary Chakra LocationsYour 2nd chakra is located approximately 2-3 inches directly down from your navel.

It’s the energy plexus where emotions, digestion and immunity all come together. When it gets out of balance or entangled with toxic pollutants, your physical, emotional and spiritual health can be impacted in a negative way.

Gaze softly at the Reiki Chakra Key below to help you balance and gather up physiological information that will help you organize your space in a way that helps you feel safe and healthy.

The environment in your second chakra is very important to your self-care and emotional healing. When it’s balanced and healthy, it transmits a vibrant orange energy that is hopeful and attracts belonging and support. It’s also your creative center, the place where you generate your personal mana or creative energy. If it becomes stagnant, goes into shock or gets caught up in emotional entanglements, your physical, emotional and spiritual health suffers. In today’s environment, that’s something many of us are experiencing. This simple feng shui exercise is designed to help you go within and come up with important resources for staying healthy.

When you’re ready, pull out a piece of paper and something to write with so you can make notes as we go along…


Creating Internal Safety is based on SOS Mind Exercise #8: Setting Up a Safe Space

Creating Internal Safety by Setting Up a Safe Space In Creating Internal Safety, you’ll be utilizing your intuitive insight to implement very simple changes that can make a world of difference in how you’re creating stability and safety in your personal space. You’ll discover that your intuition and unconscious mind are much more aware of whats going on than your conscious mind is!

Go through this mind exercise by reading each step and then gazing softly at the Circle that goes with it to gain insight about what creative changes you can make in your internal and/or external environment that will help you.


Step 1. The goal of Creating Internal Safety is for you to get clarity about how well your personal space is supporting you and what you can do to make improvements. You might get insights about your body or your external environment. After all, they are connected and this is an important time to become aware of them.

First, take some time to slow down while you gaze softly at the Circle. Breathe in and out several times. Drop your shoulders. Relax your jaw. 

Move around and stretch if you need to.

Once you’re feeling relaxed, bring to mind the space that you’re inquiring about. Imagine that it’s moving in slow motion.

 

Step 2. Next, shift your attention to your own body, imagine you can see the space within your Second Chakra (remember, that’s located about 2″ below your navel).

Zoom in, like a camera. See or sense it moving in slow motion.

What do you notice? Go ahead and make notes about what you sense.

 

Step 3. In response to sudden challenges we’ve experienced in our environment, let’s use one of our Chakra Healing Keys to repair any damage due to pollutants, smoke, viral or destructive energies, which could cause reversals, allergic reactions, addictions, deformations, reversals and misdirections.

Let this symbol help you make corrections. Relax and sense your overall energy. If it feels jagged or disjointed, stay with the Key until your energy smooths out.

“I repair the glitches, holes and blockages in my chakra system.”

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

 

Step 4. Now that you’ve cleared your internal energy up a bit first, you can get a better awareness of your external environment.

Feeling safe is a major priority. Innocent happenings such as loud noises, flashing lights, repetitive motion or high frequencies can cause unpleasant reactions in you without your being consciously aware of them. Gaze at this Circle and ask for help so you can get more aware.

Gaze at this Circle for Divine Protection and ask for help and advice.

Let’s start with very simple questions that we take one at a time…

Is there anything in your personal space or immediate environment that could be triggering an unsettling reaction in you? Is anything irritating?

  • Is there a flashing light? Sudden movements?
  •  A sound? Are there disturbing frequencies?
  • Are toxic influences present? Anything else?

 

Step 5. You could be preoccupied by other things that are causing you to be anxious. You may be reorganizing your work/living arrangements or in the middle of a move or repairs. Let this Circle help you relax and answer questions about how you need to nurture yourself now, under your current circumstances.

Is there any clutter or something to let go of that would help ease the situation? If so, what is it and where is it located? Does something need to be added?
Are you tapping into nurturing, beneficial energies? If not, take a few moments with this Circle to help you do that.

Is there anything else?

 

Step 6. Physical objects in your environment carry a lot of energy through them, especially if they have been gifted to you or are second hand pieces. These could be books, equipment, furniture, pictures and other objects of art. Are there any objects in your home or office that are having a sharp or negative effect on you? If so, can you identify them?

What would remedy the situation?

Does something need to be moved, rearranged, cleaned or removed completely? Can something be brought in that would remedy the situation?

 

When dealing with emotional challenges, it’s often a great help to rearrange or clean out certain areas of the home – and that includes cleaning crystals. Read more about that here…

 

Step Seven: Since our recent transition out of the Piscean Age of Water into the Aquarian Age of Air, a new, generative form of life energy (chi’) has become available for us to use. Take several moments now to meditate on this symbol for you and your environment. Do that as often as you need to.

These positive affirmations will help:

“I access Divine Protection and close down all harmful energy channels left over from the old paradigm.”

My mind is open and clear to receive generative life force in the New Paradigm.”


 

Step Eight: Now is a good time to check back in with your body. Take a minute and use this next Circle to tune into yourself: What emotion(s) are running through you? Does that throw you off balance?

Is that dynamic helpful or harmful to you?

 

Step Nine: If it’s harmful, you might be internalizing an emotional complex – a compulsion, attitude, obsession or phobia from the collective unconscious.

If that’s happening, go through this short sequence to let it go. First, release your agreement to carry it any longer.

Let the energetic structure for it collapse and then visualize expelling the negative thoughts and emotions up to the Light.

By the way, there could be more than one. Check both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body to get them all.

 

This symbol can help you clear any remaining toxins out of your second chakra. Focus in again on that area about 2″ down from your navel and repeat your visualization of sending the debris to the Light.

Continue until you feel quite clear.

 

Seal up any drains, leaks or holes in your energy field before you move on.

 

Step Ten: Now you can turn your attention back to your external environment. Is there anything else about it that’s irritating you?

Identify it if you can. What will remedy the situation?

Do you need to pull your energy back from external situations and events?
Are you inadvertently tapping into harmful or distracting energies?
If so, use the Circle to pull your energy back and close off destructive energies.

Is there anything else about that?

 

Step Eleven. Is there anything that you could bring into your space that would help you be happier, more hopeful or more creative?

Would anything increase your good health, emotional stability or physical security?

Could anything be done to increase your experience of prosperity?
What might you add that would bring more beauty into your space?
What vision or experience would you like to project out into the world?

Is there anything else you need to know?

 

Step 10. You can finish the game today by closing the doors that might keep you open to the suffering of the past and the old paradigm.

Remind yourself that your personal space belongs to you and how you take care of it has a profound effect on the rest of your life!

Closure for Mind Body Healing

 

Congratulations! Thank yourself for taking the time to go through Creating Internal Safety – a gift that will make your life a whole lot better! Now is a good time to take a walk or go out into Nature to help this all integrate.

Feng Shui in Santa Fe

Discover the Art of Space Clearing and Feng Shui in Santa Fe ~

Since 2002, Rheanni Lightwater has been combining her medical intuitive skills with Feng Shui to create greater health and prosperity to help us as we evolve into the energy of the  New Paradigm. Today, Soul Resources is excited to offer this form of Feng Shui in Santa Fe!

Feng Shui in Santa Fe

Feng shui (pronunced “fung shway”) is a Chinese term that means “wind and water” symbolizing the natural flow of “chi” or life energy that flows through our environment and supports life. Predating Taoism and Confucianism, this ancient art of flow and placement in one’s environment has been used to facilitate balance and well being in every important aspect of life.

Feng Shui in Santa Fe can make a real difference in the ch’i of your home and the success of your business by:

  • Creating a more balanced and harmonious atmosphere.
  • Grounding a sense of safety and stability.
  • Clearing your space of stagnant, toxic or disturbing influences.
  • Freeing your property of any old baggage and negative history from the past or previous occupants including: bankruptcy, criminal activity, death, illness, divorce, etc.
  • Accessing a generative flow of life force to support life-affirming goals.

In addition, Rheanni can provide simple, effective recommendations about placement, balance, colors, or any elements to add, move or take away.


Feng Shui in Santa Fe Creates Common Ground

Recent changes in the Earth’s electro-magnetic grid have challenged us by causing a collapse in the electro-magnetic fields that support our buildings and community infrastructures.

We now have a unique opportunity to detach from the old patriarchal grids and reset our internal and external Feng Shui grids to generate Common Ground for equality, personal responsibility, co-operative action and sustainable prosperity! 

If you are:

  • Easily overwhelmed by having too much to do
  • Feeling unstable and having trouble staying grounded
  • Running around in circles, getting little constructive done
  • Experiencing rough communications and emotional volatility
  • Having difficulty staying on track with your goals, or alternately
  • Feeling very stuck and unable to move

Rheanni Lightwater specializes in helping you clear the static and make a change for the better. She offers Covid-safe space clearing and Feng Shui in the counties of Santa Fe and Bernalillo in New Mexico.

If you have had your Feng Shui set up by Rheanni in the past, it’s highly recommend to have it reset as soon as possible. Please note: when Mercury is in Retrograde, it is not a good time to establish Feng Shui grids. It is, however, a good time to do internal work, upgrading your internal energy systems with mind body healing).

Contact Rheanni at info@soulresourcesllc.com to discuss your needs.

If you are too far away for her to come to your space, you can schedule a private online Feng Shui Reset, available through Zoom or FaceTime.

Clear Perception – a Mind Exercise

Intuitive Guidance Using the Loyalty and Clear Perception of Dog Medicine:

Clear Perception - Dog MedicineYour gut instinct is an awesome inner guidance system and has access to all kinds of information that you’re not consciously aware of. The only trick is that you need to be paying attention! 

Luckily, you can learn to use Dog Medicine with this Mind Exercise to hone your intuitive abilities and develop clear perception about where you’re heading.

First, a word about environmental changes and getting a grasp on the larger picture…

Most people know on the unconscious level that a shift has occurred. However, the conscious mind may still be acting as if everything’s still the same.

In order to ADAPT, it’s very helpful for our minds to have signs and maps to assist us as we navigate the new terrain. That is the reason and purpose for all the symbols and Intuitive Learning Circles on this site.

For example, If you meditate on the “map” available in this image, your mind can get a better grasp on what it can organize around in the New Paradigm we’ve entered.

The imprint of common ground based on cooperation, joy, equality and sustainable prosperity.


If You Would Like To Develop More Clear Perception On Your Journey You’ll Need to Know If You’re Heading in the Wrong Direction ~

There are several reasons why you might be unconsciously heading in the wrong direction.

1. One possibility could be that your energy is having a difficult time adjusting to all the significant environmental changes that are taking place. Sudden reversals, blockages and changes in momentum can cause our subtle energy fields to react in unusual ways.

As you look at this first Circle, do you notice any rough glitches or reversed energies going on? Relax with it for a few minutes until things smooth out.

2. Your timing could be off, causing you to jump ahead before it’s a good idea to do so.

Most peoples circumstances are unstable at best and treacherous at worst.

It’s good to get your radar up and prepared for sudden dangers that are so prominent in times of DECLINE. Ask yourself:

“Is there a situation where I’m jumping to a conclusion before it’s a good idea to make any moves?”

If your answer is “yes,” it would be wise to stop and reconsider. Retrace your steps and see where the error is. If you take each step one at a time, you can avoid a great deal of trouble!

3. Your senses may have gotten all knocked out of balance. 

With so much going on, its easy to be distracted and confused by all the intense input that’s going on around you.

Fortunately, dog energy works incredibly well to help you with your inner guidance system – warning you to slow down and get your feet back under you.

Gaze softly at this Reiki Chakra Key and take a minute or two to consciously gather up all your senses for greater awareness. 

4. Your intuition could be out of balance too.

Don’t let fantasy over-ride clear perception either. Sometimes we get too emotional and out of balance. That’s when we spend our time in the watery depths, fantasizing about how we want things to be or wish they were, rather than acknowledging how they actually are.

Certainly, we’ve all had wishful thinking about that perfect lover or fears about the next worst case scenario. That’s natural. Yet, it’s important to be able to pull back into the here and now and not get too carried away.

You can rectify that for yourself by bringing your senses into balance so that you can perceive things more clearly. Imagine you can adjust the volume for seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting and smelling! Breathe in and take all the time you need.

You don’t want to miss some important information or an opportunity that you need to take advantage of. Dog medicine is here to tell you that something really important is happening right now and you need to be paying attention!

5. Finally, something could be draining your energy.

Do you sense that something like that could be happening?

 

Before you plunge into the great unknown, take a few minutes to go through this grounding exercise, Develop Clear Perception, where you can make friends with dog energy and get all kinds of insight and guidance. 

Get Your Feet Firmly Planted On the Ground

Relax and gaze softly at the center open space of this Circle while you go through a few positive affirmations. If there’s a question, just be open to your gut response.

“I slow down because things may be moving too fast for me to sense the truth. “

“I’m willing to admit I don’t know what’s going on. Asking for help is a blessing.”

“Is my inner guidance sending me a warning?”

“Do I need to let go of something? Change something?”

“Do my instincts want to redirect my attention to a solution or something else?”

“In either case, am I willing to listen and learn?”

You may be surprised at the answers that are coming to you. If it didn’t work, relax! You can go back and do it again. Journaling is often a help.

Be sure to check the directions again and follow them if you’re not sure.

 

Use this next Circle the same way with this affirmation:

“I allow clear perception to heighten my instincts and intuition.”

Then ask:

“Am I willing to trust in the power of not knowing?”

“Is the ‘vibe’ around me helpful or harmful?”

Very interesting, isn’t it? We instinctively know when the “vibe” is right or wrong, but we often don’t appreciate the messages we get. We doubt and second-guess ourselves or we might willfully ignore our inner guidance system and try to force our way through.

Look at the Circle again and ask, “Am I heading in the direction of my best interests?”

“Am I making decisions that are in my best interests?”

“Am I taking actions that are helpful, harmful or simply ineffective?”

If you’re not clear yet, keep going with the exercise. You may need a few more easy corrections before the truth emerges.

Clear Perception and Being Present

Clear Perception - Gut Instinct

Often, how well we listen to our inner guidance is affected by how present we are in our bodies. It’s called gut instinct because when we’re really present, we can feel it in our solar plexus (the soft area in the front where our ribs go up).

You can use the Circle below with its positive affirmations to help you become more present and aware. Just relax and breathe while you gently look at it for a couple of minutes. Feel free to move at anytime in any way to help you embody your experience…

“I detach from blockages and harmful energy.”

“I am present, upright and facing forward. I am willing to hear the truth.”

Once you’ve finished centering yourself, hopefully, you’re feeling much better!

Use Dog Medicine to Handle Your Agreements Appropriately:

Another reason why we might not perceive clearly is because there’s some kind of problem with an agreement or commitment we’ve entered into on some level. In this busy, modern life, people tend to take their agreements too lightly and don’t realize how important their word is.

Perhaps paying attention to what we say seems like too much effort or too complicated. Yet, if you really want to be be loyal to yourself, being clear about your word and your agreements is super important. Especially agreements that you’ve made with yourself!

Here’s some tips about how to handle agreements successfully:

  1. You can keep your agreements and stay in integrity with your word.
  2. You can release agreements when they’re complete or no longer serve you.
  3. Or, you can consciously re-negotiate them when they need to be changed.

By the way, it’s also a good idea to pay attention if someone hasn’t been keeping their agreements with you. If that’s happening, it’s best to deal with the indiscretion asap. When we allow someone to break their word with us and then say or do nothing about it, we lose our own integrity by being disloyal to ourselves.

Stay Calm and Take a Few Deep Breaths:

It’s okay. Our situations are changing at a rapid pace and so are our priorities. To help you identify problem agreements, use this Circle to help you slow down again. Focus on yourself and your current goals.

“I bring my senses back into balance. 

I see myself and my goals as they really are in the present.”

 

Once you can perceive clearly, you may ask yourself:

“Have I been trying to keep agreements that are harmful to me? Is it time to renegotiate a pertinent agreement? or Am I ignoring an important agreement that I need to follow through on?”

If so, can you tell what those agreements are about? Take all the time you need with this… what insights do you get?

If you ignore them, they may turn around and bite you!

Use this Soul Contract Circle to imagine that any harmful agreements you may have are like contracts that can be melted down to adjust for what’s needed or burned up entirely. Use the Circle to visualize all harmful contracts interacting with a sacred, violet flame. Here’s some affirmations to assist you if you like:

“I release all agreements that no longer serve me.”

“I let go of ___________.   I reframe ____________.  I stop ____________.”

Possible new agreements could be:

“I am loyal and true to my Self. My needs are a priority.”

“I have faith. I listen to my instincts and take good care of my Self.”

“I ________________________________.”

Use Dog Medicine to Help You Sniff Out the Truth:

To complete the correction in your perception, it’s important to realize where your attention has really been. Use the Circle below like you did with the others and see if you can determine what you’ve been focusing on consciously or unconsciously that isn’t in your best interests.

“What have I been paying too much attention to?”

“What action(s) do I need to take to truthfully correct the situation?”

Pull yourself back out of any fantasies, delusions or unconscious fears.

It’s very important that you be present, paying attention to your own actions and using your beneficial karma to create your own priorities.

Energy Medicine for the New Paradigm

 

Imagine those beneficial actions you’ve taken in the past are all gathered like seeds in the center of this Circle. Visualize positive life force traveling down the lines towards your helpful karma, nourishing them and encouraging them to grow!

 

Now it’s time to redirect your attention to helpful people, opportunities and places. For additional help, ask these questions:

“What is my priority at this time?”

“What is my natural place in this situation – where do I belong?”

“Am I operating in the New Paradigm based on equality, co-operation and sustainable prosperity or the old paradigm based on fear and greed?”

 

Finally! It’s time to close the door on all those misuses of your time, attention and energies.

“I close the door on any drain or strain on my time, space, attention or energy.”

“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

“I trust the wisdom of dog medicine.”

 

Before you move on, let this symbol help you close down any harmful energy channels from the old paradigm and tap into the generative energy flow of the New Paradigm instead.

“I close down all harmful energy channels.”

 “My mind is open and clear to receive generative life force.”


Congratulations!
 

You now have clear perception about what’s really important to you and some guidance about what to do about it. Not only that, you’ve just gotten a key insight that’s going to save you a lot of trouble in the long run!

How To Develop Healthy Boundaries

SOS Self-care Formula #6: Develop Healthy Boundaries

SOS - Develop Healthy BoundariesMany people, especially those who are highly sensitive or empathic, want to learn how to develop healthy boundaries because they are so open to thoughts and energies coming from other people. Sometimes those thoughts get attached in their minds and spin around, causing a great deal of discomfort.

If the pathways remain open, all kinds of trouble (karma, issues, illness or confusion) can pass back and forth between people without their awareness. If left unchecked, this type of attachment can manifest in negativity, sudden and mysterious illnesses, mental confusion, issues with prosperity or chronic states of overwhelm.

It’s a valuable skill to know how to shift your energy and Develop Healthy Boundaries.

Self-care Formula #4 from SOS – Soul Oriented Solutions uses affirmations and the Intuitive Learning Circles to help you learn to consciously close off the pathways to  negative thoughts or emotions and shift into a more positive mindset. Here’s an example of how it works. Simply gaze softly at the Circle while you contemplate each of these positive affirmations:

“I reclaim and balance my five senses.”

“I focus them to be present and aware of appropriate boundaries.”

“I use them to become aware of intrusive thoughts, attachments, illness and confusion so that I can let them go.”

“I focus on a hopeful future and productive actions that will benefit my health and happiness.”

Use Develop Healthy Boundaries when you are:

  • Agitated or feeling out of sync
  • Distressed by recent news
  • Getting negative or anticipating hardship
  • Feeling claustrophobic
  • Unable to meditate or sit still
  • Obsessed with a particular person or situation.

Here’s how it works: Find a quiet place if possible, where you won’t be disturbed for about twenty minutes. Follow the sequence of symbols while you read their accompanying instructions. Gaze gently at each Circle for about two minutes. A longer or shorter time may be necessary.

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.

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 and that your mind and body are relaxing.
Be sure to go through the entire formula and at the end, give yourself time to rest and integrate.

Developing a quiet mind and light heart changes your perspective and that makes it easier to follow through with your true priorities.

Gently contemplate each step for clarity and better boundaries…


Step 1. Balance

Begin by consciously breathing in on the count of three and slowly exhaling on the count of five. It’s helpful if you can breathe in through your nose. Do that three or four times while you gaze softly at the Circle.
Continue breathing and bring your awareness to your tailbone.

What do you need to get in balance about?

 

Step 2. Calm

Keep breathing with your belly soft and relaxed.
Let your shoulders drop.
Gaze softly at the Circle and imagine you can turn down the feelings or thoughts that are turned up too high, just like the volume on a radio dial. Be sure to do that both crossed and uncrossed.

What thoughts relax you? 

 

Step 3. Centering

See if you can collect any noisy thoughts or distractions into the center of this Circle. You may sense something like a web or a bunch of strings that have gotten all tangled up with each other. Or, you may get a sense of an open, gaping hole. Whatever it is, bring it all into the center.

 Are you getting caught up in other people’s thoughts or emotions?

 

Step 4. Protection

Once you have all the distractions and emotional energy gathered up, let the next Circle help you close that gaping hole or any other open pathways between you and all those noisy thoughts.
Keep closing the hole until all pathways are completely sealed and healed.

What are you ready to say goodbye to?

 

Step 5. Beauty

Now you’re ready to shift your attention. Breathe in and exhale. Beauty is everywhere. Consciously turn your attention to it.
Take your time and let the Circle help you call the most majestic, inspiring scene into your mind that you can imagine. Form a mental picture of what it’s like. Imagine the sounds and how it would feel to be there.

What beautiful places have you been to or would like to go to?

 

Step 6. Trust

Come back to your breathing again and notice how calming it is.
You can sense the steady rhythm of your heart.
The gentle expansion and contraction of your lungs.
Breathing in and letting go. Getting centered and learning to trust.

What are you willing to trust? 

 

Step 7. Intention

Give yourself permission to slow down and focus your energy on your priorities. Turn your attention to what really matters to you. Can you name what’s most important?
Let the Circle help you lift any distraction or pressure you may feel right up off of you and send it to the Sun. Without all that pressure, it’s easier to know what your true priorities are.

What’s important to you now?

 

Step 8. Grounding

Gather your resources and get present in your body. Put your feet on the ground and feel your connection with the Earth.
If you like, you can stretch or move around in any way that feels good.
Flexing your fingers and toes can really help.

What do you feel in your body?

 

Step 9. Surrender

Imagine with each new, relaxing breath you are able to fill your heart with compassion and understanding for yourself.
Let any heaviness you feel lift up and out of you.
Dark clouds are dissolving into blue skies and sunlight.

What can you do that expresses love?
