RECIPROCITY – UNDERSTANDING GIVE AND TAKE

Rheanni Lightwater - Spiritual Guidance & Mentor
w/ Rheanni Lightwater

There are 58 Intuitive Learning Circles in Gifts from the Rainforest. Each one represents and transmits the healing medicine of a plant, animal or nature spirit that lives in the rainforest.

In this tutorial, we’re going to learn how we can use the Intuitive Learning Circles to train our ability to direct and control our personal energy to manifest our highest good!

Organizing Principle of the Intuitive Learning Circles: Use Your Energy Effectively.

You can use the Intuitive Learning Circles to practice how you’re using your energy to create better outcomes, however, your intention, whatever it may be, cannot be completed until you have followed through and taken action in the real, physical world.

That’s why whenever I really want to accomplish something, I spend time with #14, River Otter. That’s because River Otter is a Master of cause and effect, reciprocity and knowing how to have fun while doing it! He knows that no matter how difficult life gets, things are not as bad as they seem. You can bring fun into doing almost anything.

Let Otter give you a quick lesson in reciprocity. 

Gaze into the Circle and imagine that Otter is there with your Soul, coaching you with a smile. He wants you to know that good-natured fun comes from the sheer joy of doing things just for the pleasure of doing them. Take away the have to’s, should haves and second guessing!

Step One: Centering. Otter - ReciprocityGet present in your body. Use your breath with Otter’s Circle to gather up your energy and awareness into the central area of your solar plexus and heart. This is your potential energy or life force – what some people call chi’, mana or life force.

Practice this step alone to improve your balance and self-confidence.

Breathe into it. Eventually, you’ll feel a ball of potential energy to fuel your objective and be able to hold it!

Be sure to do that both crossed over the midline of your body and uncrossed.

Organizing Principle: The Golden Mean.

Otter knows that “what you put out come back to you” is an essential principle to master if you want to create the preferred karma and good will needed for true prosperity and happiness.

Step Two: Self Awareness. Let Otter help you examine what kind of energy you’ve been sending out into the World. Soften your gaze at his Circle, and ask yourself:

At the moment, what am I putting out? 

Fear?
Conflict?
Irritation?
Resentment?
Confusion?
Hopelessness?
Dissatisfaction?
Am I being positive? Negative?
Am I being too extreme?

When I send this life force out, is it splattering all over the place? Do I know where or to whom that energy has been going to?”

Whatever you’re putting out, is that what you would like to experience in return? Consider for a few moments how what you’re putting out might be related to what you’ve been experiencing. What has been coming back to you?

Step Three: Focused Attention. Now let Otter help you change your experience for the better. Place the words ‘focused attention” in the center open space of Otter’s Circle. Then, consciously bring your full attention to those words, until you have a clear focus on them. Next, you may ask yourself what you would like your attention to be focused on. Once you have the words that express your objective, place those words into the center open space and bring your attention in on them.

Especially if it feels like your energy is scattered, use the Circle to aim your energy clearly and directly into the center.

Step Four: Reciprocity – the Game of Taking Aim. Now you’re ready to play target practice by engaging with the center of the Circle like a bull’s eye. Wait until you can sense clear, direct energy coming back to your center.
It’s like playing a game of ball, whatever you toss out to the bull’s eye in Otter’s Circle, he will toss it back to you and you can feel it in your gut!

Practice with this for a few minutes to improve your concentration and control over how you use your energy.

Now check to see what happens when you add the intention of having fun. While you keep playing with it you’re learning how to consciously direct your energy toward a goal and align multiple objectives with each other. This creates unity of thought and an improved sense of direction!

Even better, if you want to change what you’re putting out, you can practice with Otter before you actually go out into the world and do it. What other things might you prefer to experience? Confidence? Courage? Trust? Joy? Clear communication? Try adding them one at a time. Keep throwing the ball back and forth until you get a good flow going. This “game of taking aim” increases your stamina, enriches your intentions and is the essence of reciprocity.

What else can you learn from Otter? As you can see, this fun little game is a great way to re-align your goals if you’ve been having trouble with that. Maybe you have a project you’re working on that just never seems to line up or fit together. Take each component of the plan one at a time and add them to the center bull’s eye until you can get that reciprocal back and forth going.

Healing Tips:

  • If there’s an aspect of your project that just won’t go into the center, it’s a good indication that something about it needs to be reconsidered or let go of entirely.
  • You can use the Intuitive Learning Circles to practice how you’re using your energy to create better outcomes, however, your intention, whatever it may be, cannot be completed until you have followed through and taken action in the real, physical world.

Summary: If you send out negative energy that scatters out in a lot of different directions, you get a lot of scattered, negative energy back. 
If you send positive, focused energy out, you get clearer, more positive energy back.
If your intention includes things like fun and gratitude, what you get back is even better!  

Now that you’ve learned to play the game of give and take, Otter and the Circles in the next Tutorial can help you create a whole new template for reciprocity and sustainable prosperity by Understanding Karma.  When you learn how to include yourself in the equation, lots of things get a whole lot more fun.

Intuitive Learning Circles help you access your inner guidance and self-confidence to make proactive changes. Simply relax and gaze at the Circles while contemplating its message and positive affirmations. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek.


Further Exploration into Praying Mantis Medicine:

Praying Mantis Medicine

The medicine of Praying Mantis suggests that you’re being impulsive and would do well to center yourself before taking action. Your focus is off or distracted. Gaze softly at the Circle and consciously focus on what matters now.

Perhaps you are pushing yourself to get something done, however, it is not necessary and may cause you trouble in the long run.

Take a deep breath and ask your heart as you look at the Circle: “What is the reason for pushing myself?” Then hand it over to your Higher Power. Ask to be aligned with that Higher Power, which is your Source. Once you have done this you can inspire others to do the same.
Or
You are trying to do it all yourself, causing exhaustion and burnout. Hand over some parts of the process to others who can assist. Relationship to oneself and others is about the process of creating together, not an ego-driven goal like money, fame or popularity. Align your purpose with your Source and answers will come.

Emotional Stress and Memory

Can Emotional Stress Affect Your Memory?

Especially when the stakes are high, you need to remember the important things. However, people often times have memory problems when they’re under a lot of emotional stress, especially if they’re highly sensitive. Why is that and what can be done to help?

Emotional Stress If this sounds like you, you are probably overwhelmed by the uncertainty and ungrounded by the sheer amount of information that you feel you have to process. You might be having experiences like the ones below. 

  • Processing difficult news 
  • Feeling weak or mentally exhausted
  • Disoriented due to grief or sudden loss
  • Picking up on other peoples pain
  • Noticing an increase in forgetfulness
  • Getting confused more easily than usual

If you are, you’re not alone and you can easily get some relief by going through the Emotional Stress that Affects Memory Exercise out of our Soul Oriented Solutions series.

Directions: Start by confirming that this is the best formula for you with the SOS Symbol.

SOS - Soul Oriented Solutions for Emotional Stress
SOS Symbol

Next, go through this short mind exercise to understand how emotional stress might be causing memory lapses in your case and what you can do to help yourself. Read each step and then gaze softly at its Circle, one at a time.

Give yourself permission to look at the Circles in any way or from any angle that you like. All you have to do is stay relaxed. If you’re drawn to focus on the center of a Circle, great!

If you come up with a message, an image or instinctively want to trace over the lines, let your imagination guide you. A playful approach reduces stress and opens up possibilities so you can look at your situation from different perspectives.

Developing intuition in this way enhances your personal growth and can keep those creative juices flowing for better mind function.

Caution: the use of this exercise is not intended take the place of appropriate medical and/or psychiatric care. If you are having prolonged or increasing bouts of memory loss, seek the appropriate medical help.

Stress That Affects Memory ~

How Are You Experiencing Disorientation?

1. We’re going to look at several possible reasons why emotional stress might be affecting your memory. One reason could be that you are disoriented due to a sudden recent change. You might also be picking up on other people’s stress. Another possibility could be that your mind has been exposed to an overwhelming amount of information. It helps to be aware of what is involved.

Let this Circle help you gather up any important information involved. Your unconscious mind knows what’s pertinent and what’s not.

You might want to jot down any impressions you notice. However, don’t be surprised if nothing definite comes to you. There may not be any words because the unconscious mind is not linear. 

Just make note of what your experience is for now.

 

What is a Clear Intention That will Help?

2. To help bring your mind into focus, establish a simple and clear intention for this exercise.

“I improve mental acuity and brain function.”

Go ahead and meditate on the center open space of this chart with that intention in mind. Breathe deeply and relax. Don’t try to make anything happen. A relaxed mind will lead you to a more relaxed body!

When the energy of the chart slows down, you’re ready to move onto the next step.

 

What Would You Like to Shine Light On?

3. The pineal gland is an important part of your brain because of its main function of regulating light and darkness through its production and secretion of melatonin. In addition, the pineal contains light-sensitive cells that control your equilibrium through the circadian cycle of sleep and wakefulness.
Melatonin also supports healthy memory function and reproductive cycles.

Relax and breathe for a minute or two and let this Chakra Key help you clear toxins from your pineal gland so that your natural rhythms and cycles can come into better balance.

 

How Would You Like to Feel?

4. The hypothalamus is a part of your brain that regulates homeostasis. Through it, you have the ability to maintain inner balance and a calm state of mind. It also regulates a variety of functions including your physical development, digestive health and metabolism.

Allow this Chakra Key to help you clear and balance your hypothalamus.

 

What Would You Like to Remember?

5. The hippocampus is actually two structures located on either side of the temporal lobe that are involved with memory development, verbal, spacial and directional skills.

Repeat what you just did in the previous steps. Relax and breathe while you gaze at this Chakra Key to clear out toxins and bring both areas of your hippocampus into balance.

Once you’ve really relaxed with it, check in with a question:

“Is there something I’ve forgotten that’s important? More than one?”

Make a note of it and continue with your mind exercise.

 

What Would Bring You More Ease?

Emotional Stress and the Third Eye6. There’s another part of your brain function that taps into the wisdom of your Soul. Some call it the Third Eye Chakra. Through it, the pineal, hippocampus and hypothalamus can connect and work together to enhance learning and create coherent thoughts. Intuition and common sense can then blossom and communicate meaningful insights to your Heart Center.

Keep relaxed and gaze softly at the Circle with each affirmation:

“My common sense and intuition are working together.”

“I receive meaningful insights about my situation.”
“My mind helps me to reduce stress and integrate joy into my life.”

 

What Needs to Get Connected?

7. Keep relaxed and gaze softly at the Circle with each affirmation:

“My mind is connected and balanced to create improved mental acuity and brain function.”

“I improve my comprehension and understanding.”
“I connect with solutions.”

 

What Would Support You?

8. It’s possible that you’re dehydrated or not getting the right nutrition. While you gently focus on this Circle, ask yourself:

“Is there something I could eat or drink that would help me?”
“Is there something I’m eating or drinking too much of?”

 

 Is There Something That You Need To Let Go Of?

9. If there is, let this Circle help you open up and let it go.

Just keep letting go and release all that emotional stress. See yourself relaxing under an afternoon Sun. Take all the time you like. It’s okay to let go and rest.

 

What Would Help Your Emotional Stress?

10. Is there something that you could do to help your mental emotional stress?
Is there something it would be best to stop doing?
Use this Circle to consider actions you could take that would help in this situation. Make sure they would be genuinely helpful to you now.

Is there anything you could do or stop doing that would be genuinely helpful to others?

 

What Is Your heart Saying?

11. It could be that things are just moving too fast and your mind is trying to keep up. Take a moment to slow down and tune into your Heart Center. Ask yourself:

“What is my heart telling me?”
“Am I worried about something (physical, financial, family issue, etc)?”

“What have I been doing? Has that helped?”
“What do I feel?”

 

How Will Life Be Better Without This Emotional Stress?

12. Your physical body is the foundation for your vitality and your instinct to take care of yourself. Clearing energy, especially in your lower body, will give you strength and support to make necessary changes. Put both feet on the floor to help you ground. Take whatever time you need.

Once you feel stronger, ask yourself:

“What, if anything, am I forgetting about my physical health?
“Is there something I need to remember?”

There’s always more than one way to do things, what new way comes to mind in this case?

 

What Would Keep You Grounded?

13. A strong connection to the Earth gives you support to make the necessary changes and stay balanced at the same time. Put both feet on the floor to help you ground.
If needed, go back to Step 7 and connect with your other chakras.
Take whatever time you need.  

“What do I need remember?”
“Do I need to change anything?”
“Do I have the connections and resources I need to resolve this stress?”
“What would be involved? Is anything missing?”

 

Ask For Blessings On Your Life Path.

14. Finish by balancing out your Life Path Chakras. They help you stay on your own path and tune into the promptings of your Soul – a very important thing to remember!

“I open up to my potential and stay positive.”

“I stay true to my Souls path.”

You may want to sit with this for quite a while.
Plan to take a walk or relax for a bit out in Nature once you feel ready.
Releasing emotional stress takes time and space!

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.”

Further Exploration into Tree Sloth Medicine:

Sloth Medicine

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 mind keeps jumping ahead and that’s preventing you from finishing your task.
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.

Befriending Animal Spirits

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.

By observing their behavior and the role they play in their environment, we can learn to adapt and make the most of the circumstances we find ourselves in.

Healing Action: It’s time to take ownership over your communications. Befriend the animal world and your own animal nature. Adapt to your circumstances.

 


Invoking the Animal Spirits

Long ago in the Garden of Eden
the animals walked with us in peace and cooperation.
We were given healthy dominion over them,
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.

Parrot Medicine

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 Situations

Transformation Game - Moving OnMany people are having a difficult time being stable because they are getting pulled out of the present by conditioning and emotional attachments to the past. You can get grounded in the New Paradigm of cooperation and equality 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 times such as this, prideful displays of power will absolutely backfire. This is not the time to push your expectations or agendas. Withdraw and consolidate your energy as best as you can. Take care and stay strong within yourself. Do nothing to push your personal agenda regarding this particular situation and withdraw as much investment of your time or money as you reasonably can. Unwillingness to let go will most probably result in loss.

I connect my consciousness with Hope.

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. Maintain your inner connection to Hope.

Keep your focus on those things that are working. They are the 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 stop what’s happening,’ you will actually be giving the situation more fuel and prolonging it, rather than letting it die 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. This reality may be unpleasant however, acceptance is what is called for.” 

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 situation 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:

Release your conditioning to personally attach to that situation.

“I uproot the conditioning, beliefs and behaviors that are pulling me into this DETERIORATING situation.”

“I release them to the Light where they can safely be transformed.”

 

Step 4.

Can you  identify the emotion that pulls you towards the DETERIORATING situation?

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 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 help you 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 Chart that connects you with the 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:

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:

Use this Chart to help you detach from negative energies around your situation. These may include energies from other people, even family members.

Like a healing balm, imagine that a loving coat of peace and comfort is pouring down over you.

“I release all attachments and energy signatures that are not from my Soul.” 
“I detach from destructive energies, lies, curses, sabotage and illnesses.”

 

Step 10:

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

“I am no longer connected to that DETERIORATING situation.”

 

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’s interfering with your freedom. 

You can visualize them as dark clouds or entanglements that you surrender to the Light to be transformed. Stay with it until you feel they’re completely gone.

Please note: Never send destructive energies into the Earth, she already has too much to handle now. Use the Earth for planting seeds of happiness and life – not death!

Step 15:

Finish the game by closing off the pathways in your mind 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.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

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.
