Tree Sloth Medicine

Slowing Down with Tree Sloth Medicine

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

Sloth Medicine from Gifts from the Rainforest

23. Sloth Medicine – the tree sloth peers out into the darkness with clarity of vision and moves very slowly, if at all. He advises that it’s often very wise to watch and wait. Know what you want before taking action.

Are you trying to do too much at one time? Are you clear about what your true priorities are? Is there so much going on that you can’t follow it all?  If so, what will help?

Healing Action: Slow down. Narrow your focus. Be more selective. Make some priorities for yourself.

 


The Eye of Truth

The sloth lives quietly in his tree
watching the world around him.
He rarely moves unless he has something
very specific he wants to accomplish.
The birds and monkeys chatter endlessly
and rush about doing their daily business.
But this is not sloth’s way.
To him, all that screeching and squawking
and rushing around
is a distraction to clear thinking.
His motto is:
“Say what you mean and mean what you say.
Know your intention and brighten your day.
One thought at a time will make a soul wise.
When looking for truth, I use my own eyes.”

It’s time to slow down and focus your energies on what you want to accomplish. Turn your attention 100% toward your intention. This is not the time for multi-tasking. If you have too many things going on, you won’t be able to keep track of what’s really important, and something really important is happening in this situation. Save yourself future regrets and resentments by paying attention now.
Or
You may be in too much of a hurry to properly appreciate some very insightful information that is coming your way. Slow down.
Or
Your communication with others will benefit now by being especially clear and direct. It may be that others are in too much of a hurry to hear you. Get it in writing and insist on their signature. This particular situation strongly affects your well-being. If they are unwilling it may be time to re-evaluate the relationship.

Messages from the Animal Spirits

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

Animal Spirits from Gifts from the Rainforest1. Animal Spirits – the animals are our partners in creating an abundant and peaceful life.

and prosperity was there for all.
Much of the civilized world has forgotten
this ancient partnership, yet the animals still remember.
We can remember too.
Listen.
Watch.
Animal messages are everywhere.
Ask that the animal spirits teach, assist, and guide us
in all aspects of our lives so that we may return
to the abundant lives we were created for.

This Circle indicates that better communication will improve the situation you are dealing with now. Scattered or disjointed communication, whether written or verbal, comes out of scattered and disjointed thinking. It’s time to simplify and get to the bare truth of the matter.
Or
You may be ignoring subtle forms of communication, such as body language or events that keep repeating themselves. Missed communication is probably holding up the works somewhere. Consider the possibility that your priorities might be out of order.
Examine the following steps to effective communication. If any step is missing in regard to your current circumstance, look at the Circle to help you gain more clarity and get back on track.

1. Form a clear idea.
2. Focus your ability to focus on that idea without distractions.
3. Find the purpose – what you want to accomplish with this idea.
4. Be flexible to expand or refine the idea.
5. Be able to visualize the finished product or result.
6. Prioritize what is important about the idea and its purpose.
7. Make a decision to do it or not.
8. Follow through on the decision.
9. Achieve a satisfactory finished product.
10. Accept the responsibility for the communication.

Successful communication is the essence of being able to manifest your dreams in physical reality. Be aware that people will now listen to you with greater respect and cooperation.
Or
If you are hurting, especially from matters of the heart or even PTSD, working with animals or studying them would hold unusually potent healing.

Deflecting Projections with Parrot Medicine

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

Parrot Medicine from Gifts from the Rainforest

18. Parrot Medicine – this bird knows how to handle inflammatory remarks and condemnation. By remaining calm in the face of emotional outbursts, we develop mastery over our minds and our reactions.

Is someone trying to get a reaction out of you? Are you caught in a maze of projections? Are you stuck on judgement and criticism? If so, what would help?

Healing Action: Get out of the way. Stop taking things personally. Take control of your reactions. Reject and dissolve projections.


 

Parrot Wisdom

The wise parrot teaches us the best way to handle
inflammatory remarks and condemnation.
She simply looks us in the eye
and repeats back what we say word for word,
without emotion, judgement or attack.
When you find yourself in a situation
filled with vengeance, fear, or victimization,
do not engage it, otherwise you will fuel it.
Remain objective and mirror back what is said
with compassion, truth, and justice.
As humans, we are manipulated
and give away our power through our emotions.
Remain calm and learn from parrot
by reflecting only the goodness and beauty
of your surroundings.

You are taking what someone has said or done personally. Have you considered the possibility that your reaction was all they really wanted in the first place? What would happen if you didn’t respond the way they are expecting you to? What if you smiled or laughed or did nothing at all? You might be surprised at how fast they disappear or change their tune.
Or
Are you caught in an endless nightmare or repeating argument? Instead of being paranoid or reactive, try being more proactive. Use the Circle to imagine that the situation is like being in a maze or house of mirrors. Ask if there are particular emotions or conflicts that your mind is wrestling with. Once you have the mental construct or trap, release your agreement to perpetuate it. Then, consciously shatter the mirrors and deconstruct the trap. Clear it all away till there’s nothing left of it.
Or
You are allowing yourself to be victimized by someone else’s critical mind. Ask your heart, “What is this person showing me about myself that I don’t like?”
If you feel you are being criticized, ask, “What is really going on?”
What you make up about what they mean is probably worse than what they really mean.
Close the door on interference, judgement and criticism. Use your judgement to make necessary changes in your plans so that you are effectively protected.

Letting Go and Moving On

Help for Moving On from Deteriorating Relationships

Transformation Game - Moving OnMany people are having a difficult time getting grounded and staying clear in the New Paradigm of cooperation and equality because they are getting pulled out of the present by emotional attachments to the past. You can get centered and remedy this situation by going through  Kuan Yin’s I Ching Reading for moving on.

“If you are experiencing a situation where there is:

  • a great deal of incompetence
  • argumentative persons
  • societal discord
  • a break up in friendship or family relations
  • refusal to participate in cooperative ventures or
  • depressed health due to a toxic environment

The situation is definitely in the flow of the I Ching Hexagram #23 – DETERIORATION.

In cases such as these, forceful displays of power will absolutely backfire. Stay strong within yourself. Do nothing to push your personal agenda regarding this particular situation and be very conservative with any investment of time or money. Doing so would probably result in loss.

The best things to do when dealing with DETERIORATING situations is to take care of yourself very sensibly and to find acceptance of the times within yourself. Be generous and kind to those you care about. Keep your focus on important opportunities that are available to you now.

Keep emotional reactions to a minimum and refrain from jumping to conclusions. Meditate, surrender to the fact that all things must end. Know that eventually there will come a change for the better.

If you deal with a situation of DETERIORATION with an attitude of “I’m going to fix this” or “I need to understand why these people are thinking or behaving this way,” notice how you’re actually giving the situation more fuel, rather than letting nature take its course. It could be your attachment to the situation that’s keeping it from dying out on its own. When you let go, Nature can take its course. In most cases, the negativity will feed on itself and die out naturally. 

Here’s some help through a Transformation Game called “Letting Go and Moving On.”

Gently gaze at these Intuitive Learning Circles one at a time and consider the question or affirmation that goes with each Step. This process helps you to become aware of what’s bothering you, so that you can make a different choice to use your energy more productively and in tune with your Inner Guidance.

 Step 1:

What is a relationship around you now that is DETERIORATING? Trust the message that comes through from your deepest, wisest guidance.

If your mind is blocked or blank go here and read about Fixated Thoughts or Shock>

 

Step 2:

Enhance your inner guidance by calming your senses and bringing them into balance. Some may be turned up too high and some may be too low. Relax and allow your eyes to rest gently on the Circle below.

Mind Body IntegrationTake some deep breaths and let your shoulders drop. Adjust the volume to your senses. Do that both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body to achieve greater mind body integration.

 

Step 3:

What is the emotion that tends to pull you into that energy?

Once you have identified what you’re feeling, take a moment and just relax into it. Could it be a phobia, an obsession or a compulsion?

“I accept that this emotional state is present and that it must change. All things eventually change.”

If you can, rub your shoulders and neck for a minute or two. The more you relax and accept what you’re feeling, the easier it will release and dissipate.

 

Step 4:

Release your agreement to remain connected with that energy or the emotions it transmits.

“I detach from energy imprints that are foreign or harmful to me.”

“I send them to the Sun where they can safely be transmuted.”

 

Step 5:

Bring your awareness now to your body. Go to your solar plexus area and open your third chakra, the home to your Essence and “gut instincts.”  

Let go of any toxic energy and bring the chakra into balance.

 

Step 6:

Bring your awareness to your Heart Center. Allow this Reiki Chakra Key to open and balance it.

Keep relaxing and breathing into it. Eventually, you will be able to feel life energy radiating out. The light of your Heart Chakra is shining!

 

Step 7.

Gaze softly at this Circle that connects you with the energy and empowerment of your Soul. Imagine that your energy system can adapt to the changes that are needed. Continue to relax and breathe as you use this affirmation:

“When it comes to the situation of _________, I exist and am empowered to manifest my highest good.”

 

Step 8:

Allow yourself to connect with your Soul’s unique vibration and energy. Continue to relax and breathe as you use this affirmation:

“I am resonating with the vibration of my Soul.”

“I strengthen my unique gifts and talents.”

 

Step 9:

Align with your Soul’s unique energy signature. Reclaim the air of confidence and sincerity that is your birthright!

“I release all agreements to carry signatures that are not from my Soul.” 

“I erase all false signatures like graffiti from a wall so that I may live in peace and prosperity.”

“I am aligned with the unique energy signature of my Soul.”

 

Step 10:

Consciously close down any destructive energy channels that are coming from the DETERIORATING situation.

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

 

Step 11.

Now, get fully present. Use this affirmation to help you:

“I live in the present and deal with what is.”

If you’re having trouble getting present, it can help to close your fingers into fists and open them again, several times. If you get overwhelmed or feel a strong emotion come up, go back to Step #2 and repeat the process to relax and dissipate the emotion.

 

Step 12:

Now that you are present, ask your deepest wisest guidance:

“What is an action I can take that will help me to move on?”

Take as much time as you need to reorganize your thoughts and energy around positive action.

 

Step 13:

Consciously re-direct your energy and attention toward a situation you want to encourage instead. Move your attention and energy away from the DETERIORATING situation.

“I turn my energy toward  productive activities and plans.”

 

Step 14:

Use this symbol to consciously release any remaining mental, emotional or spiritual baggage that is interfering with your freedom. 

You can visualize them as dark clouds or entanglements that you can send to the Light to be purified. Stay with it until you feel they are completely gone

Step 15:

Finish the game by closing off the pathways that lead back to the DETERIORATING situation.

“I let go and seal off the ways I prolong or maintain suffering for myself or anyone else.”

Check to see if you have any further issues that need to be addressed before you are complete. If you do, ask for a number between 1 and 46 from Soul Prayer Charts.

Congratulations!

Having the faith that you don’t need to be in control of a DETERIORATING situation is a big help in coming to terms with change and moving on in a positive way.

Healing Emotional Shock

Any person who is going through serious loss could experience emotional shock.

The symptoms of emotional shock are disorientation, numbness, mental confusion or fragmentation. A person may even disconnect and leave their body. This includes people who are witness to traumatic experiences in some way. 

These are all ways that the unconscious mind protects us during a traumatic event:

  • Feeling stuck, numb, lost or helpless
  • Unable to rest or relax
  • Caught in a blank or fixed state of mind
  • Waking up at night worried, with obsessive thoughts
  • Reliving painful experiences
  • Alternately feeling trapped and shattered.

The following mind exercise uses the Intuitive Learning Circle method for healing emotional shock ~

Emotional ShockRheanni Lightwater - Resolving ShockSometimes people who’ve just received bad news or experienced a traumatic event will tell you that they’re fine and not to worry about them. That’s because one of the main symptoms of being in shock is not being aware of being in shock. Why is that? During a shock, the mind goes blank as a form of protection.

The shock response is natural and not a sign of spiritual, mental or emotional weakness. It is a physiological event. Nevertheless, if the person doesn’t get a chance to get grounded in their body again – or if they’re not able to – serious problems may develop. Blocked energy and a constant state of fight or flight takes its toll over time. Statements like: “I can’t think straight,” “my life was shattered” or “I feel disconnected” describe the experience of emotional shock.

If any of the above seems familiar, you can go through this mind exercise step by step to help you access your own innate healing abilities and bring yourself back into balance.

Simply follow the directions and see if you can free up some of the confusion and conflict that comes from shock. 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 my body.”

“I use them to become aware of my environment and what’s important to me right now.”

“I focus on positive actions that benefit my well-being and happiness.”

For 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.


Healing Emotional Shock and Confusion

Step One:

Take several deep breaths and relax while you look at this Circle that releases shock and inner conflict.

Imagine you can use it to focus in on a conflict or painful experience that’s blocking your way. If your mind is blank, focus on how “blank” it is. You may get a conscious image or message, or you may not.

Once you have a sense that your mind has found the blockage, imagine that it’s like an iceberg and the Sun is melting it away with a beautiful beam of light. Allow it to melt until it’s completely gone.

Check for other blockages or conflicts that you can do the same with.

Step Two:

The next step is to bring your senses into balance so that you can see and hear things without the distortion that often accompanies shock.

As you breathe deeply, let this Circle help you to adjust the volume and pitch of your senses to just the right level for you.

Soon you will be able to hear that “calm, gentle voice” inside that reminds you about what matters the most to you:

“I see things as they really are. My senses are balanced. I reconnect with what matters the most.”

Step Three:

If your gut feels tight or uncomfortable, use this Circle to help you relax in your solar plexus and get back into balance there. Your solar plexus is that soft place in your belly where your ribs go up. Just take a nice breath and feel it relax as you say to yourself:

“It’s safe. I feel safe and more relaxed with every breath.”

Step Four:

Sometimes a person who’s had an emotional shock will be disoriented and feel a bit “out of their body.” In case that’s happening with you, take a few minutes to consciously bring yourself back into your body.

“I am at home in my heart. I am inside myself.”

You can open and close your hands. Move your fingers and wiggle your toes around. Notice the time and where you are. These actions all help you recover from emotional shock.

Step Five:

The next thing is to make sure you’re grounded. Without proper grounding, you could get frantic, distracted and confused. That’s not what you want. What you decide to do matters now more than ever!

Let this Circle for grounding on the Earth help you. Place both feet on the ground and your hands on each knee while you use these affirmations:

“I uproot whatever is confusing me. I decide to get grounded. The Earth supports me.”

Take all the time you need with this.

Step Six:

Oftentimes, healing emotional shock and confusion requires a change in priorities. There may be certain plans, ideas or habitual patterns that are no longer relevant or constructive. Certain roles may get suddenly reversed. You can use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to help you identify them and dissolve whatever is confusing you.

Actively imagine that the negative patterns in your mind are like heavy clouds or a jumbled maze of fears and nightmares.

Once you have the image, bring the pure light of the Sun in and dissolve the maze completely.

You’ll know that you’re done when you can see yourself standing in a beautiful open field with clear blue skies all around.

Step 7:

Be sure to seal and heal any holes, leaks or openings in your energy field. Leaky energy may open you up to danger or allow harmful energies to attach to you. It can also leave you feeling drained and exhausted.

As you gaze at the Circle, imagine harmful leaks and openings are closing as if they were never there.

“All holes are healed and sealed.”

“I follow the protection of healthy direction.”

 

“I close up any energy drains so that I may recover my strength.”  

“I let go of old habits that are causing me harm.”

 

Bring your attention to the area that surrounds your body.

“I strengthen the protection of my auras around me.”

“I feel protected and safe in my body.”

Step 8.

To finish this exercise, let your heart recover. This Circle will help you to balance your heart energy and clear away any residual heaviness. Breathe deeply and take your time.

“I feel the heaviness lifting up out of my heart.”

“I let it go and send it to the Sun where it can be transformed.”

“I have the strength and resilience to shine my light.”

Now that you’re finished with the exercise, consider taking a nice walk outside. Nothing grounds you like being in nature after an emotional shock.

Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek…


Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for:

Transforming Your Life in The Year of the Ox

This year’s Chinese Horoscope animal is the Yin Metal Ox, which began on February 12th and will continue January 31st, 2021. Recent Years ruled by the Ox are 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009 and 2021. Future years will be 2033, 2045 and 2057.

The positive qualities of the Ox are generally described as strength, devotion, hard work, honesty and positivity. However, Ox also has a tendency to be stubborn, shy, with overly prudent or cautious behavior. She might resist change by blocking things and digging  in her hoofs without budging an inch.  I’m going to compare this type of behavior to that described in Longfellow’s poem, “When Ox is positive, she’s very, very positive. When she’s negative, she’s horrid.”

A major consideration of managing Ox energy in 2021 is how to apply your efforts effectively into situations, people and projects that are actually heading in the same direction you would like to go.

By the way, all this fits in perfectly with 2021 being a Number Five Year in the Tarot system represented by Temperance (balance and patience) and the Hierophant (inner vision and true guidance). It’s not hard to see how troublesome things could become if you were to tap into that more resistant, stubborn energy. Especially when you’re being asked to patiently follow Soul guidance and wisdom!

This leads us to the movement of the Collective Psyche, which is upward this year. Last Year was a Year of going In and when people bucked against their better angels, they went Out, causing unnecessary ill will, suffering and divisiveness towards the collective good.

So this year, your better angels will advise you to go Up. To rise up and above the turmoil and darkness that festers below. Many will buck those promptings and dive down, submerging themselves into old patterns and woundedness. Sadly, their energy will be used, yet again, by unscrupulous and predatory Souls. If you are feeling drained, weak and/or depressed, this could be your problem. Reverse the movement of your Soul. Reach for the Light and Psyche will follow.

As you can see, there’s a lot going on. To help you, this Transformation Game has been put together to increase your awareness of the different energies involved and how you might use them in a healthy way to keep you clear and on track!

Reversing the Flow of Life Force in the Year of the Ox ~

As you gaze at this Circle that accesses your personal energy flow, see if you currently need some increased self-awareness around an important aspect of flow in your life. Ask yourself:

“Would it benefit me to get inner guidance about my environment (feng shui ) for creating career, money, health, home or dwelling, business opportunity or a love relationship?”

 

Make sure that you’re aware of the current flow of the Tao – or “gateway through which all things move.” Use some positive affirmations to help you get there:

“I choose to notice the flow of the Tao.”

“I have correct awareness of the prevailing energy in my environment.”


Mind Body Integration

Mind Body IntegrationFor best results, be sure you look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that you gather up all the unconscious information about your situation.

 


Open Your 4th Chakra So You Can Be Inspired By Your Inner Guidance ~

Use this Reiki Chakra Key to balance and open your Heart Center. 

“My heart is open to the flow of joy and balanced prosperity in this situation.”

“I am centered and radiating ___________.”

“My heart is empowered and aligned with my highest good.”

 

When things are at their beginning, it’s very easy to get off track. Mistakes are bound to happen because this New Paradigm is a new path for everyone. We will all probably need to go back and make adjustments to plans and/or assumptions we’ve made about how this new stage is going to work.

You’re going to need to cultivate true kindness and patience towards your Self to make the changes necessary. Gently look at the next Circle to affirm your best intentions:

“My agreement is to be kind and patient with myself as I learn about this New Paradigm.”

“I remain flexible to make choices that will keep me moving upward on a positive trajectory following the guidance of my Soul.”

“I let go of _________. I prepare for __________. I take care of __________.”

 

“I use beneficial channels of communication and natural healing to further my highest good.”

 

“I clear and empower my Throat Chakra to speak my needs truthfully for the highest good.”

 

Focus in on the open, blank space in the middle of this Circle. Send your energy to it using these positive affirmations:

“I use my energy wisely – to fuel life affirming goals.”

“I make a conscious choice to focus my energy on genuinely helpful people, projects and activities.”

Make a list of things or experiences you would like to create that would be genuinely productive for you at this time.

 

“I decide to let go of unproductive activities and negativity. I send them to the Light to be transformed.”

Make a list of things you need to let go of…

 

“I am fully present and ready to transform my life.”

The Essential Human*Note: If you have a copy of The Essential Human, now would be a good time to use it to untangle yourself from any harmful scenarios or exploitative situations.

Energy Medicine for the New Paradigm

Once you’ve done that, you’ll probably feel quite a bit better.


If you’re willing, there are several other decisions you could make that could really improve how you’re navigating the energy. 

Let’s continue with several principles that are bound to be helpful as you transform your life.

Priority #1: Stay focused and calm.

The year will have many challenges – sometimes too many! Keeping a calm and peaceful mindset will help you stay aware of possible danger. Ask yourself:

“Am I calm?  Focused? Is there something I need to pay attention to for my own good?

 Priority #2: Keep Your Choices Down to Earth and Do-able.

Keeping your perception realistic sets you up for success and keeps you on track.

“I let go of fantasies and unrealistic ideas.”

“I focus on what’s really possible for me to create in my current situation.”

“I perceive my situation as it really is.”

“Clarity of thought and good boundaries create the best conditions for success.”

“I decide that being calm and stable are healthy qualities to nurture.”

 

Priority #3: Stay Grounded In Your Own Garden.

It can be pretty easy to wander off into other people’s gardens looking for work that isn’t really meant for us. This is what is known as ‘I’m going to fix you” syndrome. Don’t buy into it!

“I remain in my own garden to tend it properly. I make the necessary changes so that I may thrive.”

Priority #4: Release Irritations and Don’t Take Things Personally.

We may have a tendency to internalize all the stressful irritations that are a part of learning and adapting to any new situation. Use this Circle to help you open up and release anything that’s bugging you. Imagine those bugs all flying up to the Sun!

Once you’ve done that and you feel clear, ask yourself, “Is there anything irritating me about my physical environment?”

Priority #5: Be the One Driving in Your Own Driver’s Seat.

Life is too short to let other people or other agendas be in charge of how you’re living your life. Have the Courage to say “no” when you need to.

Stop second guessing and make a choice about what’s most important for you right now.

“What is most important right now?’

“Do I have some intentions that conflict with each other? If so, can I tell what they are? What can I do to clear the conflicts?

Am I in a suitable position to be successful? If not, what would help?”

 

Now it’s time to dissolve mental and emotional patterns that pull you off track. Use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to identify and let go of any societal or familial patterns that interfere with transforming your life. See them disappear as you send them to the Sun:

“I dissolve the destructive energies or old patterns of ____________, etc. ”

 

I decide to get grounded and follow the path that’s most beneficial to me.”

 

Once the patterns are cleared, close the pathways or trajectories that lead to trouble.

“All harmful pathways are sealed and healed.

I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

Transforming your life is an opportunity to go within and expel deep patterns of neglect that prevent us from creating more sustainable systems for health, relationships and prosperity. 

You can use this opportunity to plant beneficial karmic seeds for these new systems and any other useful resources that you may need in the near or distant future.

Congratulations!

Once you begin to take responsibility for how you’re using your energy, you can bring sustainable choices into your world and benefit everyone!

Handle Irritations Before They Handle You

Is the Way You Handle Irritations Working for You or Impairing Your Health?

Mind Exercise - Handle IrritationsDo you handle irritations by flying off the handle or is it more like a slow burn?

Certainly, it seems that everywhere and every day, there’s more things to be irritated about. But, are you letting them drain your energy or sour your mood? Do they keep you up at night?

Well, if that’s happening, you’re certainly not alone. These are all ways that we keep “scratching the itch” and make bad situations worse.

This is a great subject to journal about for your own personal growth. You can turn irritations into positive progress, and this Mind Exercises is here to help you do that.

Simply relax and gaze at the Intuitive Learning Circles while contemplating the accompanying positive affirmations and questions. Going through the process will help you discover how well you’re handling irritations and what you can do to improve. 

So, get out a pen and paper and let’s get started…

An irritation is there to alert you of a problem. Use Chigger Medicine to slow down and tune into what’s bothering you.

What is a problem that’s been irritating you? Write it down.

Often, an irritation communicates on several levels. Ask yourself:

“How is this irritation affecting me physically?

Emotionally?

Mentally?

What about spiritually?”

In what ways do you keep “scratching the itch?”

Is that working for you? If not, are you open to an alternative path?

Keep writing until you feel you’ve gotten all the information.


MIND BODY INTEGRATION

Mind Body IntegrationFor best results, look at each Circle both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.


Engage in a Change in Perception to Help You Handle Irritations.

It’s possible that you could handle irritations a little better by shifting your focus. Look at your situation from a different angle or through a different filter. You can get some help with that by relaxing with these affirmations:

Rational Thought

“I reclaim and balance my five senses.”

“I focus them to be present and aware of my current needs.”

“I use them to become aware of confusion, conflicts and self sabotage.”

“I gain clear awareness of alternative paths that hold beneficial resources, solutions, opportunities and _________.”

 

Relax and let this Circle help you adjust the volume on your senses so you can handle irritations from a more balanced point of view.

“I bring my senses into balance and see things as they are.”

River Medicine

 

Check to see if your energy is getting drained.

Mind Exercise - Handle Irritations

 

Get all that stress off of you by getting it down on paper.

“I focus in on potential solutions that could really make a difference.”

Praying Mantis Medicine

This is a good time to write down specifics to help you clear away extraneous mental and emotional clutter.

You could also move, stretch, draw, doodle or journal via a stream of consciousness.

Art often brings in creative inspiration and self-care from your Soul!

 

Once you’re ready, use this Circle to help you reorganize your situation from a more empowered standpoint.

How do you need to reorganize your thoughts? Can you tell what the priorities are? What actions will you need to take realistically to follow through on those priorities? Write the information down, so that you have a plan to handle irritations.

Starlight Medicine

 

Is there something that needs to be re-arranged? Does something need to be re-calibrated? Does something need to be removed entirely?

Rat Medicine

The Essential Human* If you have a copy of The Essential Human, now would be a good time to use the process on page 10 to help you make corrections for a healthy and full expression of the power that comes from your Essential Self. Choose from The Essential Human charts #1 – 42. Use this affirmation:

“I detach from harmful energies and connect with beneficial energies. What number(s) between 1 and 42 would help me correct the imbalance?”

Water Element – Emotional Balance

 

Make sure that your energy isn’t being drained anymore.

 

Are you heading in the right direction to be successful?

Are you hanging out with those who will be helpful?

 

Gently contemplate this symbol to help you get clear about what changes you can make in your position and direction.

A good question to ask is: “What would Love do?”

Reconnecting to Love

 

Imagine you can peel any negativity off of you like when you’re pulling off sweaty clothing. Peel it off and imagine it going to the Sun!

True Self

Excellent!

Bring closure to this exercise by closing any holes or pathways that lead away from your higher good.

“All holes are sealed and healed. 

I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

Piranha Medicine

Congratulations! You have a plan to handle irritations more objectively, with a different perspective and without the intense energy drain! Now is a good time to go for a walk or relax.

Take Good Care of Yourself Through Moderation

During this pandemic, we’re all learning what we need to do to take good care of ourselves. The path of MODERATION is often the key.

Rheanni Lightwater
Rheanni Lightwater Reiki Master Teacher Medical Intuitive

There is no shortage of information and advice out there about what we should and should not do to take care of ourselves. Early on in my experience as a medical intuitive, I discovered that there is no “one way” to protect ourselves or heal that works for everyone. We are all unique individuals with our own strengths, weaknesses and preferences – our own karma, if you will.

I also learned that what works today may not work tomorrow. That has to do with circumstances; something may have suddenly changed that has to be dealt with. A shock may cause you to loose your footing and get off balance. Or, there may be some other spiritual or emotional blockage that needs to be released before a clear solution can appear. There could be underlying toxins in the system, the timing may not be right or the body could be so challenged by something like the coronavirus that it’s unable to communicate properly.

So, given all the variables present in this extremely difficult time, how can you take good care of yourself?

A New Perspective from an Old Friend

Transformation Games - Take Good Care of YourselfKuan Yin is a time honored and respected spiritual guide in the healing arts. She has been helping us to transition from the old paradigm based on greed and fear to a new paradigm of equality, co-operation and sustainable prosperity. Her advice on how to take good care of yourself springs from the I Ching, an ancient book of change and divination that follows the flow of the cosmos. Because of that, her insight comes from a different perspective than ours.

Introduction: Kuan Yin’s Readings and Transformation Games can help you get present and see things through a new perspective – one that comes from your innermost knowing. Simply relax and gaze at the Intuitive Learning Circles while contemplating Kuan Yins words. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek. Here’s an example:

“I connect with my five senses to perceive what I need now to be healthy.”

“I use them to become aware of confusion, lies, conflicts and self sabotage.”

“I use them to discern the difference between healthy life force and an invading energy.”

“I gain clear awareness of beneficial resources, solutions, opportunities and _________.”

 

Note: As you gaze at a Circle, it may move around, change color or spin. The lines may disappear and reappear again. That’s okay. It just means that they’re working with your subconscious mind to help you make needed changes. You’ll know the adjustment has been made when the energy subsides. Take all the time that you need. Your Soul is in charge!

Now, let this Circle help you balance all of your senses so that you are listening to your own body, instead of all that discordant noise from the outside world! The volume may be turned up too high, or it could be too low.

Take several breaths and relax. Breathing into your belly and exhaling long and slow. This is helpful to every part of your nervous system.

“I listen to my heart. I notice my breath. I move my body around and stretch.”

“I activate my intuition and use it in balance with other aspects of learning, such as common sense, logic, observation and instinct.”


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.

Feel free to move at any time in any way to help you embody your experience!


Next, make sure that you are fully present.

Continue to relax and let your 3rd Chakra get connected, open and balanced at your solar plexus (the area where your ribs go up in the front).

Your Essential Self is most efficiently located there to help you manifest, create happiness and maintain health.

In stressful times, it’s pretty common for the Essential Self to get closed off, misplaced or dissociated. You can correct that now.

 

This next Circle calls in the unique energy signature of your Soul so that you can synchronize with your environment appropriately.

When you use your own energy signature, you can easily distinguish your energy from the energy of those around you. This is great for your health and for healthy boundaries!

Imagine that you can “plug in” at your Solar Plexus Chakra to relieve irritability, strengthen your immune system and clear out extraneous confusion. Use these affirmations to help you:

“I am plugged in and my life flows with ease.”

“I know who I am and what is important to me.”

Divine Nature Activates ChakrasTo complete the Introduction, use this Reiki Chakra Key to gently connect & balance your 4th Chakra, just up about 4 – 5 inches from the solar plexus.

The Fourth Chakra is also known as the Heart Chakra because it’s the center of our spiritual connection – the bridge between our bodies and our spirit.

It also regulates both the respiratory and circulatory processes. When it’s properly balanced, the energy has a green vibration with a positive charge; like a beautiful light, radiating out.

As you softly gaze at this Key, keep breathing until you sense positive energy radiating out from your heart  center:

“My Heart Chakra is connected, open and balanced. Its light is radiating out.”

 

Once you feel open and relaxed, you’ve tuned up your energy and you’re ready to start playing the game!

Get out a pen and some paper. You may want to journal what comes up.


Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for:

Hexagram # 15 – Moderation – How to Take Good Care of Yourself in the New Paradigm

Transformation Game - Take Good Care of Yourself

“In difficult times, it’s usually best to move with the flow of MODERATION, Hexagram #15, where ‘The predominant forces … are in the process of balancing extremes and harmonizing interests.’ ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

The ancient Chinese text describes MODERATION as the best way to make progress by disengaging from harmful extremes and following the truth and guidance that comes from within. In almost any situation, if you’re able to walk a moderate and middle road, there will be improvement in whatever you undertake.

Finding Moderation and Following that Path ~

As a general rule, MODERATION is a sensible flow to follow whenever there’s so much chaos and confusion that it’s hard for you to tell what’s going on. In the midst of chaos, unpreferred karma (cause and effect) can be easily triggered. For many people, soul contracts have been completed and need to be released to prevent unnecessary health problems. Generally, people are probably either:

  1. Falling into a downward spiral of mental, emotional, physical and/or spiritual health.
  2. Experiencing a lot of obstinate refusal to change. 
  3. Getting pulled back into regressive patterns from the past.
  4. Pulling oneself together into a centered position of empowered authority.

As you softly gaze at this Circle that accesses karmic seeds, see if you’re currently experiencing one of these situations. Ask yourself:

“Am I generally experiencing situation #1, 2, 3 or 4?”

It could easily be a mix, depending on your mindset and what stage of the karma you’re living through.

Whatever it is, you can take good care of yourself by letting go of any karmic agreement that is complete – over and done with or that’s causing you harm in any way. This game will help you do that. 


Let Go So You Can Bring In New Ways to Take Good Care of Yourself.

Use this Soul Contract Circle to help you identify and release the agreements. It can be helpful to imagine that each agreement is like a lock attached to every vertebrae of your spine. To let go, start at the bottom of the line and move up your spine – unlocking any harmful agreements as you go all the way to the top of your neck. Here are some examples:

“I unlock any agreement to sacrifice my health or place myself in harms way.”

“I let go of any lies, poor guidance or assumptions that block my ability to heal.”

“I discontinue activities or beliefs that put me at risk.”

“I release pathways, false concepts and patterns of behavior that lead to conflict, confusion, hardship, over-indulgence or ________, etc.”

 

Reclaim Your Power:

“I decide to gently integrate healthier patterns that upgrade my happiness and well-being – in accordance with my highest good.”

“I exist and am empowered to take good care of myself.”

Take all the time you need to really relax with this one.

 

Clear Out the Clutter:

This is a good opportunity to clear your inner garden of any outdated intentions or energies that interfere with your health or happiness.

As you look at this Reiki Key, allow your heart center to clear out any hurtful entanglements or conflicts. Include old energies or grievances with family, friends or business relationships. Clear out harmful agendas from social institutions, religious practices, cults or partisanships. Release attachments to completed projects, places you’ve lived, outmoded forms of transportation, communication, consumerism or business, etc.

By letting go of all that clutter, you free up a lot of energy that’s better spent on your health and vitality.

 

Make Commitments to Your Good Health and Well-being:

Because of the chaos involved, there aren’t many guarantees out there. Making any kind of reliable prediction is next to impossible. You’re going to need all the presence and energy you have to help you during times such as these. Gently look at the next Circle while you affirm these positive affirmations:

“My new agreement is to stay present in my body and follow my inner guidance – calmly and honestly.”

“I am flexible and able to adapt to what’s needed.”

“I notice disturbances in my health. I ask for and receive reliable help when I need it.”

“I make wise choices about my health and well-being.”

“I let go of ______.   I prepare for ______.

I take care of ______.   I am open to ______.”

 

Strengthen Your Energy Field:

“I decide to build an attraction field for _________, _________, _______.” Suggestions: excellent health, healthy boundaries, nourishment, equality, good company, cooperation, sustainable prosperity, etc.

 

Focus On Your Priorities:

Use this Circle to help you shift your focus to what really matters.

“I make a choice to focus my attention on hope, health, sustainable prosperity and ______________.”

 

Develop Healthy Reciprocity:

Take time to organize your energy properly so that you can manifest your intentions.

“I nurture my body, mind and spirit healthfully, in alignment with my highest good and my highest good is returned to me.”

 Once you feel in the flow, ask yourself: “Are there any habits or behaviors that would be helpful for me to change?”

 

Nourishment:

Consider how well you’re nourishing yourself and make notes so that you’ll remember.

“Are there any foods, especially herbs, teas, vegetables or fruits that would benefit me? Am I getting enough fresh water? Is there anything to stay away from?

Is there anything I’m consuming that’s causing a problem?”

“Am I approaching my circumstances correctly? If not, can I tell what’s needed?”

 

Oxygen:

Relax for a few minutes to consciously breathe and relax. Imagine what kind of exercise you could do that would be most helpful today.

“Am I getting enough oxygen through breathing, fresh air and exercise?”

Emotional Calm

“Do I need more relaxation? If so, what might help me?”

 

Sunlight:

Your body needs sunlight to stimulate good health and keep your immune system strong.

“Am I getting enough sunlight to make Vitamin D-3?”

“If not, what would help me with this?”

 

Evaluate Your Current Actions or Intentions.

“Are there any activities I’m planning that would be dangerous?”

If so, can I tell what they are? How can I follow a more MODERATE and beneficial path?”

 

Let Go of Destructive Patterns:

Now it’s time to dissolve mental and emotional patterns that pull you off track. Use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to identify and let go of self-sabotage or any societal or familial pattern that still affects your health in a negative way. See them disappear as you send them to the Sun:

“I dissolve destructive energy and any connection I have ever had to it.”

“I dissolve ___________________.”

Close the Pathways to Suffering:

Once the patterns are cleared, close the door to pathways that lead to  extremes, unnecessary suffering or danger.

“I decide to close the door on harmful pathways. I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

 

Ground:

In order to actualize the benefits of what you’ve done with this game, it’s important to get grounded. Put both feet on the ground and let this Circle help you get grounded in a new paradigm of equality, cooperation and sustainable prosperity.

 

Finish with Gratitude:

At this point, you’re probably feeling much calmer and more in balance. Finish with this affirmation:

“I am grounded in gratitude and appreciation for the help I receive.” 

Congratulations!

Take Good Care of Yourself

“Learning how to take good care of yourself at this time is an opportunity to go within and expel deep patterns of fear and conflict. May we all arise from those patterns, much as a beautiful lotus arises from the muck and mire at the bottom of a pond.” ~ Kuan Yin

Now is a good time to move around or take a nice walk if you can. Enjoy being out in the Sun and fresh air.

Note: Go through this game as often as you need to, especially if you’re experiencing health challenges.

Changes in Your Environment

Feng Shui Tips for Handling Recent Changes in Your Environment:

Rheanni Lightwater
Rheanni Lightwater

When going through a radical change, it’s a great help to clean out certain areas of our homes and keep an eye on how well the energy is moving. While we’re rearranging things, we can reorganize our intentions to adapt to the changes in our environment and circumstances. When we take the time to do that, we’re allowing a physical and psychological space to open up for new things to come in and help us adjust both inwardly and outwardly.

Changes in Your Environment - Crystal CleansingFor example, I have a lot of crystals and objects that I consider sacred. I got a strong message that I need to regularly cleanse those crystals and rearrange other significant objects to accommodate the changes in the I Ching flow. Why is that so important? Because crystals and significant personal objects can hold onto a great deal of energy and old intentions.

In order to keep my mind and energy flexible, I don’t want to be held back by the gravity of those old energies. Also, I don’t want to be blocked by old intentions and outdated agreements that aren’t relevant anymore. They only perpetuate inner conflict or confusion!

A few months ago, when the pandemic started, I got the strong guidance to “change with the changes and still stay grounded.” In the early summer, my inner guidance was to “bring light and balanced prosperity into my mindset and environment.” Now the focus seems to be “I am firmly grounded in the new paradigm and have plenty of emotional support.” This are pretty big changes, and I’m sure there will be many more to come!

Big changes in your environment can be supported with the help of Reiki, strong intention and clear crystals.

To cleanse crystals, I gather them up from around my house and property and then place them in a bowl of water mixed with sea salt. Around the full moon, I’m guided to set them outside for a day or two to cleanse. That way, they will get really clear through an infusion of both Sun and Moon light. Then, I set new intentions with those crystals, based on what is needed now.

Notice that I didn’t say, “please keep the coronavirus away,” or “please be sure that civil war doesn’t break out.” If I were to set intentions based on things I don’t want to happen, my whole mindset would start to unconsciously fixate on all the uncertainty and fear that these things attract. To make things even worse, the energy in my environment should start to organize around the fixation. That’s exactly opposite of what I want!

So, when I set intentions in turbulent times, I calm myself down first. Once the shock is abated and my mind is clear of anxiety, I ask for a life affirming experience that’s general enough to allow positive change to occur and that makes sense under my current circumstances. That part is especially important since we know the changes we’re going through are liable to continue for some time. Then, I set up the energy in my living space to organize around the new intention by mindfully placing the crystals and/or sacred objects as I’m guided.

If you are interested in this process of reorganizing your intention, here are a few Intuitive Learning Circles that will help you focus and re-organize your awareness. Simply gaze softly at each Circle while you contemplate the question or positive affirmations that go with it.

  1. What, if anything, has recently changed in your environment?

How have your circumstances changed?

 

Is there a general improvement or decline?

 

2. Are there any agreements or decisions you need to reorganize?

 

3. What is the best way to nurture and care for yourself now?

 

4. What changes in your environment do you need to make to support your new intention? The changes could be inside or outside.

Prosperity

How might you bring light and balanced prosperity into your environment?”

Congratulations! Make a list of the inspiration that comes and you’re off to a good start!

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. In one day, you might feel panicked, enraged or frustrated by others who don’t seem to know how to change. So much of “normal” life is gone. You may feel threatened and just want to get away. You could be ready to fight due to any number of conflicts – both inner and outer. You might shut down or go round and round in circles – resisting the whole situation with every fiber in your body!  

Transformation Game - How to Change

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, in Hexagram #29 DANGER, it says:

The situation is one of real DANGER, caused by and manifested in the affairs of man... Acting with integrity and confidence is the key to surmounting the DANGER.”

In Hexagram #49 CHANGING, the ancient text states: 

“A struggle is occurring …the time of CHANGING suggests that although you may not know what to do, you know that something must be done. Your best course is to alert yourself by paying careful attention to the shifting moods of those around you. Take stock of the general feelings running throughout society. This may help you determine your own personal imperatives and the support you can expect in carrying them out.”

In Hexagram #51 SHOCKING, the text says, “The only thing predictable about what is coming is its SHOCKING unpredictability… Examine yourself to see if you have in your heart an acceptance of the sudden forces of the cosmos. Only with this attitude can you behave correctly.”

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

You can discover how to change more gracefully and let go of the resistance 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 determine what I need.”

“I use them to notice my environment so I can reject, repel or avoid harmful thoughts and energies.”

“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 your resistances more fully so that you can release more. 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.

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

Gently, clear your awareness to notice what specific areas of your life feel stuck or not moving. What do you notice? You might want to make note of some of the impressions you get.

 

Empower your ability to choose in this situation.

“I exist and what I do matters. I can do something about this.”

“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 clutter.

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

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

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 this Circle that clears conflict, resistance and fixated thinking.  

Imagine that you can use the Circle like a bull’s eye to dissolve, melt or send a laser beam to break up any conflicts or fixations you may be experiencing.

If you’re judging yourself too harshly, use the Circle to help you break up those rigid thoughts. If you’re shut down, use the Circle to bring yourself back to life! Move around in any way that you like.

 

Continue with your investigation about how to change…

“Am I taking anything personally?”

You can usually tell if you’re internalizing something because you’ll start to experience physical, mental, emotional or even spiritual irritation.

“I stop taking this personally and let it go. I turn to more positive ways of dealing with this particular situation.”

 

Think about what you can learn from this situation.
“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.

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) to help you choose beneficial “ingredients” for creating your life. Ask yourself:
“What ingredients am I choosing?” 

Choose from the archetypes #1 – 42. Use this affirmation:
“I release harmful ingredients and access beneficial ingredients instead.”

 

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

“I let go of outdated agreements to resist or to take on someone else’s issues as my own.”

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

“I let go of ________. I detach from ________. I remove ________.” Etc.

 

Make some new decisions that support how to change more appropriately, like: “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.

 

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

 

Keep breathing and give yourself a good dose of courage with the help of this Circle:

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

 

Imagine that this symbol can help you find any thoughts or seeds of resistance you’re feeling. They’re probably not even yours! It’s time to set things right. Send them back 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 confusion or conflict. Use this symbol for Dissolving Destructive Blueprints and send all the patterns into the Light.

“I dissolve the mental, emotional and spiritual connections to these patterns of conflict.”

Take your time and visualize them dissolving like dark clouds into bright sunshine!

 

Next, 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.

 

Finally, let your mindset align itself with gratitude and grace:

“I am grateful to be changing with the changes.”

Congratulations!

It’s rarely easy to let go of conflict, but once you know how to change with the changes, 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
