How To Be More Intuitive

This Mind Exercise* is about how to be more intuitive. Let’s start with the definition of intuition that I like to use:

“Intuition is an inner knowing available to us when all of the senses, known and unknown are balanced and able to receive information that is usually filtered out by the conscious mind.”

How to Be More Intuitive

*from the Learning in the New Paradigm Series by Rheanni Lightwater: Games to retrain your mind to focus on” balance” or  “joy,” rather than “perfection.”


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

Mind Body Integration

Mind Body IntegrationThe brain and body communicate through different channels when a part of you is crossed over the center of your body. If you feel resistant or stuck, cross or uncross a hand or foot over the midline of your body and go back to the Circle, breathing patiently. See if your thinking starts to move again. Let negative self-talk go by breathing through it.


Simply read the instructions and then follow through on the directions while you gaze softly at each Circle.

Step One: Slow down. Stop being in such a hurry.

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

 

Step Two: With so much going on, it’s easy to be distracted and confused by everything that’s going on around you. Your senses may have gotten knocked out of balance and that can have a negative effect on balanced intuition.

Gaze softly at this Reiki Chakra Key and take a minute or two to help you get your bearings again. Notice your surroundings, the time, remember how old you are, etc.

 

Step Three: You may also be having a difficult time adjusting to all the significant environmental changes that are taking place. Sudden reversals, blockages and changes in momentum can cause the subtle energy fields to react in unusual ways.

As you look at this Key, do you notice any rough glitches or reversed energies going on? Relax with it for a few minutes until things smooth out. You can repair any jagged or disjointed glitches in your sensory system.

 

Step Four: Clear Intuition is a balance between all of the senses. You can consciously balance your senses to enhance intuition and receive clear inner guidance.
Use this Circle to let your senses get balanced. Some may be turned up too high and some too low. You can adjust them like a radio dial until it feels just right.

Once you’ve done that, bring the energy in toward the center again.

 

Step Five: Clear intuition is an internal communication. Focus in on your heart center and let the energy get balanced and open there.

It may take a minute or two to connect with the Light of your True Source. Take all the time that you need.

 

Step Six: Make sure you’re centered and balanced in your solar plexus as well (your solar plexus is that soft area in the front where your ribs go up).

The correction is made when you can palpably feel a greater sense of calm and peace in that area.

 

Step Seven: In this quiet and more centered place, ask a simple question that you want guidance about. Listen for the answer.

What is your inner guidance?

Intuition is simple and straightforward, so if you’re getting a big convoluted answer, that probably isn’t intuition. Be patient and go through the exercise again.

Once you get a heartfelt answer, congratulations! You have accessed your intuition! You might want to make a note of what you came up with. The critical mind often doesn’t like to remember the quieter, gentler voice of intuition.

Extra-intuitive Activities

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

Future Pacing

In our hypnotherapy and energy medicine classes, we talk about the importance of future pacing. What is that?

Future pacing is a way to deepen the effects of any mind body healing by projecting a preferred outcome into the future. Let’s use that idea to solidify what you’ve just learned about how to be more intuitive.

Intuition out of balanceRemember that when intuition is out of balance, it tries to define “perfection” in extremes, which gives rise to fantasy, hallucination and wishful thinking. 

Let’s head that kind of intuition off at the pass right now!

Use these symbols and positive affirmations from The Essential Human to access the very best qualities to nurture your intuitive talents.

“I close the door on turmoil, panic and chaos. I now access serenity and calm.”

 

“I release my focus on conflict. I now open to peaceful and prosperous solutions.”

 

“I close the doors in my mind that lead to grumpy, hopeless, sarcastic or cynical behavior. I am now confident and resolute.”

 

“I release impatience, distractions and confusion. My actions now have purpose.”

INTEGRATION

Imagine that you can access your beneficial karma for being more intuitive. Gather all your good deeds in the center, blank area of this Circle.

“I access my beneficial karma for actualizing balanced and helpful intuition.”

“I plant new karmic seeds for the conditions I need to be more intuitive and to accomplish my heartfelt goals.” 

Completion

The mind intuitively appreciates closure. Let’s get present and grounded as we complete this mind exercise.

Place both feet on the floor and put your hands on your knees if you can. Gaze softly at the Circle and repeat the affirmation until you feel your body has fully settled in the present.

“I am grounded in the present.”

 

Ask yourself:

How will it feel to access my intuition in the future?

What about later today or tomorrow?

A month from now?

How does it feel a year from now?

 

Gratitude

Empower your Divine Connection through gratitude. Thank yourself for taking the time today to learn how to be more intuitive – a gift that will make your life a whole lot better!

Connect with the grail of gratitude located in your heart.

“I use my intuition correctly to understand what’s in my highest good.”

“I am empowered to learn how I can strengthen ________ and _________.”

Finish it all up now by sealing and healing any pathways or holes that lead back to old, harmful patterns or suffering.

“All holes are sealed and healed.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

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

Know When Someone Is Lying

It seems like lying, misinformation and half-truths are everywhere. How can you know when someone is lying to you and when they’re telling the truth?

Did you know that you instinctually know when someone is lying to you?

Your gut instinct is a very good lie detector – as long as you’re present and paying attention! It’s just that for some reason, the information is being blocked from your conscious awareness and you can’t see the signs.

Some lies are obvious, yet in today’s social and political landscape, lies can get lost in the sheer overload of information and misconceptions. Group think. Betrayal. Herd mentality. It’s like a huge web that casts its shadow over the land and curses everyone!

In this exercise we’re going to unravel several reasons why you might not know when someone is lying to you.

One of the biggest problems is shock. Unfortunately, unresolved shock can take up a lot of mental bandwidth and keep us from being able to discern properly. It can actually make us numb to all the lies that are bombarding us from every direction. That’s why we’re going to start by clearing out any shock that might block your ability to sense misinformation, half-truths or know when someone is looking to cheat you outright. Take several deep breaths and relax while you look at this Circle that helps you release shock and inner conflict.

Imagine you can use it to focus in on a dark web within your mind that’s preoccupying you at the moment. 

What are you concerned about?

You may get a conscious image or message, or you may not.

If your mind is blank or frozen, focus on how “blank” or “frozen” it is, then relax into it with your body.

Once you have a sense that your mind has found the blockage, imagine that you can melt it, like a big iceberg floating out in the ocean. Just melting away in the Sun. 

Allow your iceberg to melt away – until it’s completely gone.

Check for other webs or dark thoughts that you can do the same with.


Mind Body IntegrationIt helps to  gaze softly at each Circle both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body for full integration. 

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

Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to continue with the main exercise…

Know When Someone is Lying to You

You may have a “blind spot.” For some reason, you’ve been conditioned to ignore certain things or not see things coming. You may be able to remedy some of that by gazing softly at this Reiki Chakra Key, together with these positive affirmations:

“I reclaim and balance all of my senses.”

“I use them to be present and alert.”

“I use them to sense what will keep me safe, productive and well.”

“I can clearly sense what will help me to _______________.”

 

Your thought process may have been thrown for a loop or you could be in a state of confusion due to so much information and so many changes going on around you. Excess emotional stress can cause problems with switching, which is where your body and mind have gotten out of sync with each other.

In that situation, a part of the mind gets confused about which direction is which and is unable to communicate properly to the rest of you, including your body. Other terms for this might be dyslexia or the “twisties”.

Use this Circle to help you get your bearings again. It helps to use affirmations like:

“I am positioned correctly inside my body.”

“Right is to the right of me. Left is to the left of me.”

“Up is above me and down is below me.”

“I am inside of me. Others are outside of me.”

 

Another possibility is that you’re being distracted. Distractions are a liar’s best friend, because if you’re not paying attention, liars can get away with all kinds of things. 

To see if this is happening with you, experiment with this Circle that helps you focus your attention. If you follow the directions, you can get useful answers that could really help you out.

All you have to do is relax and gaze softly at the center open space of this Circle while you ask yourself some simple “yes” or “no” questions. Be sure to be receptive and listen for the answer that comes.

“Am I being lied to?

Is this a deliberate all- out lie or is there a misunderstanding going on?

Are half-truths involved? Betrayal?

If so, do I know who’s involved?

Male or female? More than one person? 

Is this group-think or propaganda?

Could it involve an idea or project I’m working with?”

Sometimes we sabotage ourselves with negative self-talk or false inner guidance. This Circle can help you be more aware of it.

Is something I tell myself based on a lie?”

“Am I listening to some false guidance?”

“Am repeating something I heard from somewhere else?”

“Do I have a blind spot here?”

“In this situation, what is the truth about me?”

You may be surprised at the answers that came to you. If it didn’t work, you can go back and do it again. Repetition builds confidence!

If the answer you get is “no, I’m not being lied to,” count yourself lucky, you’re a very fortunate person! If the answer is “yes” or “maybe”, you might want to continue with the following extra-intuitive activities to see what’s going on and get some emotional healing around the issue.

Extra Intuitive Activities

We might block information about a lie because we don’t want to believe it!

Of course, this is understandable, yet the lies or misconceptions could really be doing some damage. 

It doesn’t do any good to pretend that something isn’t a problem when it actually is. When we try to deny the truth, we’re actually sabotaging our own best intentions.

The good news is, if you know when someone is lying or giving you incorrect information, you have an opportunity to save yourself from a tremendous amount of damage. 

Use this Circle to gently ask yourself:

“Am I willing to know when someone isn’t telling the truth?”

“In this situation, am I blocking myself from the truth?”

 

Use this next Circle the same way and ask:

“Am I willing to know what the lie is?”

“In this case, is it helpful for me to know what the lie is?”

“If I’m not willing, am I open to the possibility?”

Very interesting, isn’t it? We instinctively know when someone is lying, but we often don’t want to know. Look at the Circle again and ask: “Is there a part of me that’s being left in the dark?”

“How much damage has been done?”

“About how long has this been going on?”

“Do I want to shift my perspective and see things as they really are?”

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

A lot of times, how we see these things is affected by how present we are in our bodies. It’s called gut instinct because when we’re really present, we can feel it in our solar plexus (the soft area in the front where our ribs go up). You can use this Circle to help you become more aware of what you’re feeling there. Just relax and breathe while you gently look at it for a minute or so.

“I am present and aware.”

 

Another reason why we might not want to know about the lie is because we’re afraid that we won’t know what to do about it once we find out. Perhaps we don’t want to face it and it seems easier to blame others or just look the other way.

“I am present and willing to hear the truth. I face the facts.”

 

Having courage to face the truth is one of the most important things we can develop in ourselves. A mind without courage cannot expand and learn new ways of being.

Use this Circle to help you remember a time when you had the courage to face the truth and do what needed to be done. Once you find that experience, relax and let your body remember what it feels like.

“I have the courage, the resources and the capacity to face the truth.”

 

 

When you’re under the influence of a lie, it’s useful to release your agreement to fall under its spell. Use this Soul Contract Circle to imagine that the lie (or lies) are like contracts that you can burn. Use the Circle to visualize all those contracts burning up into ashes. Let these affirmations assist you if you like:

“I release all agreements to be used, intimidated, entrapped or ______.”

“I let go of the lies from _________ and the lies about _________.”

I discard any tendencies to be careless, foolish, misguided or cheated.”

“I make a decision to take good care of myself. I protect myself against lies,  deception and betrayal. My Soul knows what’s best for me to do.”

 

Sometimes it’s really important to face the truth and understand what’s required of us to change. Use the Circle below like you did with the others and give yourself a chance to reorganize your awareness.

“I let go of wishful thinking. I turn down the volume so I can listen, sense and follow my instincts. I naturally know what to do.”

Make notes of what you think would be helpful to you. “When it comes to __________, it would help to __________ and  ___________.” 

 

We often overlook, ignore or forget the details and other alternatives available to us. Use the center, open area of this Circle to help you focus in on the details of your situation.

“Is there some other detail that I need to be more aware of?”

“Are there other options or choices I could make?”

Stay with it and wait patiently for new information to make its way to you.

 

Meditate on the DNA symbol with this affirmation. Relax into it with your mind, body and Soul.

“I find an opening for the truth. The path is clear.”

 

Once you can sense that opened path, ask yourself this important question:

“What is the best, most joyful thing for me to do in this situation?”

 

Empower your ability to follow through with what is best for you.

“I am empowered to connect with my highest guidance and to follow through with my highest good in mind.” 

 

Congratulations! You now know when someone is lying to you – and when you listen to your gut, you know what to do!

You’ve just given yourself an amazing gift that’s going to save you a lot of trouble in the long run. Be sure to close the door on old emotional channels of misinformation and pain.

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

 

Now is a good time to take a walk or go out into Nature to help this all integrate!

How To Develop Healthy Boundaries

SOS Self-care Formula #4: Develop Healthy Boundaries

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

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

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

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

“I reclaim and balance my five senses.”

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

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

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

Use Develop Healthy Boundaries when you are:

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

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

Mind Body Integration

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

Let yourself breathe and relax as much as possible. Don’t worry if the images move around or change in any way. That just means the Circles are working and that your mind and body are relaxing.
Be sure to go through the entire formula and at the end, give yourself time to rest and integrate.

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

Gently contemplate each step for clarity and better boundaries…


Step 1. Balance

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

What do you need to get in balance about?

 

Step 2. Calm

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

What thoughts relax you? 

 

Step 3. Centering

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

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

 

Step 4. Protection

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

What are you ready to say goodbye to?

 

Step 5. Beauty

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

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

 

Step 6. Trust

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

What can you trust? 

 

Step 7. Intention

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

What’s important to you now?

 

Step 8. Grounding

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

What do you feel in your body?

 

Step 9. Surrender

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

What can you do that expresses love?

 

Step 10. Resolution

Before you finish this formula, make a commitment to stay centered and follow through on your priorities. Your health and happiness are important.
You can easily deflect foreign energies, other people’s thoughts or expectations.
It’s genuinely joyful to have a quiet mind and a light heart.

What joyful decisions can you make?

 

Step 11. Completion

Use the Circle to help you finish closing any harmful pathways that would lead you back to the noise and distractions of the external world.
Close the doors and seal the leaks – as if they were never there.
You are calm and ready to follow through now. Your mind is able to rest now.

 How do you feel now?

 

Finish this formula with some thoughts to come back to…

What are some words of encouragement I could give myself?

 

What are some ways I could be gentler with myself?

 

What are some things I am grateful for?

 

Be sure to give yourself time to rest and integrate. Now might be a good time to take a walk or go out into Nature if you can.

Grounding in the Truth and Your Power

A Mind Exercise for Grounding In The Truth ~

Grounding in the TruthMany people realize how important grounding in the truth is because external power struggles can so easily uproot us from the truth about what’s best for us.

Staying centered requires that you know how to use the power of your mind to control your own energy.

To find out if this Five Step Mind Exercise from RESOLVE can help you, gaze for at the symbol in this picture for a moment and ask:

  •  Are you having difficulty getting and staying grounded?
  •  Do you feel caught up in a power struggle?
  •  Do you need to disconnect from a meddling or intrusive person?
  •  Are you feeling trapped by other peoples agendas?
  •  Have you been wasting energy on the past?
  •  Are you worrying or fearful about the future?
  •  Is it hard to think straight or get dependable guidance?

Here’s how Grounding in the Truth works:

Put both feet flat on the floor and start with your arms and legs uncrossed. Simply gaze softly at the images while you repeat the affirmations that go with them for several minutes. Relax and breathe. Here’s an example:

“I reclaim and balance my five senses.”

“I use them to be present and aware so that I can actualize my Souls purpose.”

“I use them to help me protect myself and resolve my concerns appropriately.”

“I am aware of what’s most important.”

You will probably feel a lot of energy moving – that’s all right, that means the Circles are working to focus your mind and clean up your energy. You will know you’re done when the energy calms down and you can think clearly. Then you can move on to the remaining Circles with each of their affirmations to complete the process. Once you’re done, remember to relax and allow your energy to settle.

Mind Body Integration

Mind Body Integration For 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 anytime in any way to help you embody your experience!


Step One: Begin by establishing a strong intention stated in the positive.

You might want to write it down. Examples:

“I maintain my integrity and am true to myself.”

“I gather my resources to be successful in my current endeavors.”

“I disengage from this power struggle, ” etc.

Step Two – Resolve

Gaze softly at the Circle while affirming these thoughts:

“I detach from petty assumptions, ego concerns and things that don’t matter.”

“I disconnect from unproductive projects and inappropriate people.”

“I resolve to use my power wisely for what’s genuinely good for me.”

“I release all subconscious agreements to tap into other people’s energy or to allow them to tap into mine.”

 

Step Three ~ Self-determination

Connect to this Circle through your breath, then continue with these affirmations:

“I reclaim all of my energy, power and gifts.”

“I use them to be present and alert.”

“I use them to create my Souls purpose.”

 

Step Four – Centering

Bring your awareness to your heart center and keep breathing:

“I am centered and my heart is strong.”

“I let go of _________, anxiousness, pain, sorrow, etc.”

“I know how to nourish myself appropriately.”

“I maintain healthy boundaries. My life is my own.”

 

Step Five- Grounding

Take all the time you need with this Circle until you feel stable and calm.

“My feet are firmly planted on the Earth.”

“I slow down and step carefully.”

“I am connected with and grounded in the truth.”

“I am ___________________________.”

Grounding in the Truth

Your energy is more your own and you’ll have a much easier time staying grounded now. Remember, a person whose energy is balanced and grounded benefits everyone. Be sure to take some time to relax and rest.

Dispelling Self-doubt and Projections

This exercise, Dispelling Self-doubt is an excerpt from the Soul Oriented Solutions PTSD Workbook by Rheanni Lightwater ~

 Use this mind exercise for dispelling self-doubt when you are:

  • Suddenly overcome with distrust or confusion
  • Sorting out what’s really going on in a relationship
  • Having trouble distinguishing what’s true and what’s not
  • Caught up in the past and need to clear the slate
  • Wanting to let go of thoughts or beliefs that cause you harm.

Dispelling Self-doubt Mind Exercise PTSDIt’s so important to understand that sometimes we’re tapping into a collective fear or the judgements of those around us – even if we’re in a basically healthy situation ourselves. Empathic abilities are more prevalent than most people would have you believe.

People are sensitive to each others thoughts and emotions more than ever, and it’s especially easy to tap into negative thoughts that you grew up with as a child because they’re so familiar. Yet, you don’t want to live in the past or under the shadow of other people’s projections.

When making decisions about what’s best for you now, you want to be able to distinguish between a thought or a memory and the reality of what’s really happening in the present.

Dispelling Self--doubt Projection-ReflectionThis self-care formula for Dispelling Self-doubt is here to help you clear away some of those projections and see things more clearly, from your own viewpoint. If your efforts to solve a problem are causing you to become overwhelmed and frustrated, go through this exercise and watch how your perspective changes! By playing, you’ll get to the bottom of what’s going on and access your intuition, which will give you constructive guidance on how to effectively come to a solution, at least for yourself.

Here’s how it works:
Start with both feet flat on the floor and keep your arms and legs uncrossed. Gaze softly at the Circle in Step One while you repeat the affirmations that go with it for several minutes.
You will probably feel a lot of energy moving while you do this exercise – that’s all right, that means the Circles are working to unlock a fixated pattern and get you ready for the rest of the exercise. You will know you’re done when the energy calms down and you can think clearly. Then you can move on to the remaining Circles with each of their affirmations to complete the process.

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.

Once you’re done, your energy will be more your own and you will have a much clearer idea of what is actually going and what you can do about it.

Be sure to take some time afterward to relax and rest.

Dispelling Self-doubt and Projections

Step One:

Relax and gaze gently at this Soul Circle while you ask yourself this question:
“Is there someone or something in my life today that I don’t trust?”

 

Step Two:

Tune into this Circle to help you identify what’s involved.
Who or what is it about? There may be more than issue.
Is this real or a projection?
Is it a memory that seems real to you?

 

Step Three:

Make a mental list of the fears, assumptions and judgements that come to you. Include any beliefs about yourself, others or the situation in general that’s having a negative effect on you. Consider how things are appearing and what’s happened in the past. Is there a pattern of prejudice based on gender roles, status, sexual preferences, levels of experience, intelligence or general abilities?

Examples: Is there something about the physical situation? Is there an emotional component? Are you unclear about your role or responsibilities? When was the last time you felt this way?

“I assume ______. I’m afraid ______. My judgment is ______. I believe ______.”

 

 

Step Four:

Now that you have your list, go back through the answers and ask yourself:

“Are these things really true?”
“Do they have to be this way?”

Whether they are or not, see if you can move them further away from you or puncture them like balloons so that you can see them more objectively and not take them personally.

 

Step Five:

Imagine that your list of untrue thoughts and beliefs can be gathered up and gently burned until there’s nothing left but ashes. Go ahead and see that happening in your mind’s eye right now…

Now that you’ve burned them up forever, how much more calm is your mind?

 

Step Six:

 Is there any other garbage that needs to be dispelled?

Are you willing to let it go? If so, relax and see it clearing out.

If you’re not willing to let it go, why not?

Is it still serving you in some way?

Would it help to go through the formula again specifically around this garbage?

 

Step Seven:

If the garbage is gone and you feel clear, you’re ready to focus on productive activities that will help you create a happier life.

“I connect with productive thoughts and solutions.”

You may want to make a list of things to do that will help you now.

 

Step Eight.

Focus your attention and energy on these activities, like aiming at a bullseye.

Congratulations!

You have freed yourself from the grip of projections, paranoia and self-doubt. Now would be a good time to explore the possibilities that you’re open to now.

Simplify Your Life

Transformation Game: Simplify Your Life

Kuan Yin's Transformation GamesThe energy continues to change! As we go through the transformation from the old paradigm to the New Paradigm, the ability to ADAPT and Simplify Your Life promises to be more valuable than ever.

Transformation Games are inspired by Kuan Yin, a beloved and respected healing guide among natural health and energy medicine practitioners.

*Caution! Her advice, as always, is direct and to the point! You will want to get out something to take notes with.


Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for:

Hexagram # 17 – ADAPTING by Simplifying Your Life

Simplify Your Life - A Transformation Game

“Simplicity is the path of inner direction and self worth. Examine your goals and the standards you have set for yourself. If they are unworthy, inefficient or nonexistent, it will be difficult to make significant progress in a productive direction. ADAPTING your mindset and how you’re using your energy is the appropriate response at this time. Use your inner wisdom to adjust to the realities of your new environment. See things through the lens of common sense and inner guidance. Dispense with ungrounded over-indulgences in whatever form they take.

To clear away complications and wasted effort, it may be necessary for you to refocus and look at your situation from a more objective perspective. As you do so, remember the strength and power that lives within you. By ADAPTING to your new awareness and simplifying your life, you will find many unexpected rewards.”

This Game is made up of Intuitive Learning Circles, pertinent questions and positive affirmations that will:

    • give you a new perspective
    • activate your heart wisdom and
    • help you ADAPT to a simpler mindset by clearing up mental and emotional clutter.

Some questions to consider as you play Simplify Your Life are:

“Am I making things more complicated than they need to be?”

“Am I wasting my time and energy chasing after too many things?” or

“How can I focus on the aspects of my life that are most important at this time and prioritize my actions?”

If you choose one of these questions to contemplate for a few minutes and then go through the game, you’ll be able to shift your attitude and refocus your mind very quickly.


Why Simplify Your Life?

The pressures of life seem to increase everyday so we need to find guidance that comes from a reliable source. Go through the sequence anytime you feel scattered or overwhelmed. By going within and allowing your Inner Guidance to show you the way, you can simplify your life, make productive decisions and move forward with greater self confidence while you let the chaos take a back seat.”

How to Play Simplify Your Life:

Simply look at the sequence of Circles below while you ponder the questions or positive affirmations that go with them.

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.


Take a few breaths and relax. Use a soft focus to help you go within and access new energy and clarity. What you do with the information you come up with is up to you!

1. To begin, look at this symbol with a soft, relaxed gaze. Repeat to yourself several times:

“I am ready, willing and able to shift my perception from scattered to focused  –  from complexity to simplicity – from distractions to priorities.”

 

2. While looking at this Circle, think about the different activities you are engaged in. Ask yourself:

“Am I putting too much pressure on myself?”

“Am I spreading myself too thin?”

“Have I been seeing this situation honestly?”

 

3. Notice if the whole situation makes you feel anxious or uneasy. Breathe a few times and allow this Circle to help you to calm down and see more clearly.

 

4. Use this Circle from Reiki Chakra Keys to open and balance your third eye chakra. You can do this by focusing your attention on the Circle while you relax and breathe for a few moments. Use these positive affirmations to help:

“I open my intuition and common sense to become aware of what I truly need.” 

 

5. Use this symbol to ask for help from your Soul to simplify your life and balance your priorities. Once you’ve made a sincere request, be patient and listen for guidance.

“I need to _______________.”

Old Soul

 

 

5. Now that you’ve cleared up some of your misperceptions, you can use these next Circles to help you separate fact from fiction. Start by asking yourself:

“What percentage of the work that I’m doing is actually benefitting me?”

“Are there any activities or assumptions I’m making that are actually a waste of my time and pulling me off track?”

If so, can you name what they are?

Does it seem as though you’re just circling around and around without getting what’s really important done? Are you being as direct and efficient as you could be?

Describe what your experience has been like.

 

“Is there clutter I could clear up that would help me get back on track?” 

Make sure it’s your clutter! If it belongs to someone else, use the Circle to visualize sweeping it all up and sending it back to wherever it belongs. 

 

“Am I wasting energy and time due to lack of focus?”

“Is there some other issue that I need to be aware of?”

 

6. Relax for a minute and tune into your solar plexus area. Let the energy get balanced in your 3rd chakra.

 

Is there something about the situation that reminds you of the way your family sometimes behaves? How about someone else that you know? If so, are you willing to let it go? Gently visualize letting that energy go to the Sun and disappearing.

 

 

7. Relax with this image for a minute or two.

“I am willing and able to let go of complications and simplify my life.”

 

8. Take your time and use this Circle to clear confusion or complexities out of your mind. You may see them as a million details, numbers, calculations or just a bunch of heavy smoke.

“I clear away the smoke screen so I can see what would actually help me.”

 

9. As you gaze softly at this symbol from Divine Nature Activated, imagine that you can clear up the communication lines between your mind and your body.

    • If communication lines seem tangled up, see them going to the Sun and disappearing. 
    • If communication seems outdated, see your internal system upgrading.
    • If you seem disconnected, imagine your communication lines straightening out and connecting properly within yourself and the outside world.

(You’ll want  to do this while you’re both crossed and uncrossed over the mid-line of your body).

 

 

10. Once you’re perceiving things more clearly, ask a few more questions:

“What am I struggling with and am I willing to let it go?”

If you are willing, go ahead and send it to the Sun as you did with the others.

If you’re not willing to let it go, at least you now know what’s really going on.

 

11. Now that you’ve gone through the Simplify Your Life Game, see if you can use this Circle to give voice to what’s really important.

“I  access my true voice and can express what I truly need. I need to _______________.”

 

Place your intention in the middle of this Circle and consciously send your energy towards it for improved manifesting. Just like aiming at a bull’s eye!

 

 

11. Help yourself to move forward in the right direction by using this Circle to seal and heal all the holes that have been draining your energy.

“All holes are sealed and healed.”

“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

12. Finish the game by making sure the protection of your aura is all sealed and healed – a finishing step that will help your health and focus even more!

Congratulations!

Thank yourself for taking the time today to clarify between things that are helpful and those that aren’t. You’ve given voice to what’s important right now and as a result, saved yourself a lot of time and trouble. Not only that, you’ve let go of some epigenetic patterning that’s been cluttering up the situation. This is a positive step in the right direction!

Bring the energy of gratitude in towards the center and let it connect with your heart.

“I am empowered to simplify my life. I am ready, willing and able to follow through on my true priorities.”

Now is a good time to take a walk or go out into Nature to help this all integrate. Be prepared for new ideas and solutions to make their way towards you.
