CLEAR DISTRACTIONS FROM YOUR MIND
As you learned in the previous Tutorials, each Circle has a different healing action or medicine and are often used in sequence with positive affirmations to help you focus your intent. to support the positive changes that you’re asking for.
When the Circle are put together in different sequences, they can help us accomplish different mental and emotional tasks. In this case, let’s go through a short sequence where you will utilize your personal Power Animal to help you clear distractions and focus on your goals more effectively.
Access and Utilize Your Natural Creative Abilities.
Sometimes people are overstimulated or have learning difficulties that interfere with their ability to focus and productivity. Sometimes, a more creative and instinctual approach will help.
Use these positive affirmations with the Circles to access your intuition, gut instincts and the creative magic of Nature through #31 Dragonfly.
“I actively seek out the wisdom of my Animal Instincts and the Natural World.”
“I accept help from the generous, abundant resources of life
and listen to their promptings.”
“I connect to the natural
protective and creative abilities of my Psyche and Soul.”
“I allow my Power Animal to help me see this project from the perspective of my Higher Self.”
Are there any distractions pulling at you? If so, intend to withdraw from any harmful intentions, extremes or life trajectories that are harmful to you.
When you have a lot of noise or buzzing going on in your head, Mosquito Medicine can help you.
“I move the buzzing and excess noise from my head.”
Imagine that your mind just has too many windows open that allow random thoughts to come flying in. Another analogy is having too many tabs open on your computer. Piranha Medicine #8 will help you close them down. Use these positive affirmations to help:
“All holes are sealed and healed.”
“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”
Once the noise has subsided, let Paying Mantis help you refocus your attention on whatever your current task is.
“I am able to pull my energy and attention in and focus on what I’m doing.”
Do that both crossed and uncrossed so complete the correction in the best way possible.
Remember, as you breathe and visualize, the Circle is working with your Higher Self – helping you to shift and change in just the way that is best for you.
You are in charge of your attention, unless you’ve given that power away!
Remember all that you learned from Tutorial V? This is an excellent example of when and how old agreements could be interfering with your well being.
“I release all agreements to allow my mind to be distracted.”
“I let go of second guessing myself.”
“I reclaim my power and my attention.”
Wasp Medicine will help you pull your energy away from negative situations or even old memories of painful experiences.
“I pull myself and my energy out of negative spaces and experiences that are detrimental to me.”
The Wasp also reminds you to keep yourself protected. Do you have proper protection now? If not, what might help?
It is possible that you’ve been taking your project a little too seriously and the energy around it has gotten too heavy.
Gather yourself in your center with Otter Medicine and bring some fun and lightness into whatever you’re working on.
“I decide to bring a healthy sense of fun into what I’m doing.”
You might also have lost track of what the purpose for your original goal was. Garden can help you place it again. Use the Circle to remember what this activity has to do with your life and the personal dream you hold for yourself.
“The purpose of this activity is to ______________.”
Be sure that your agreements confirm who is in charge of what you’re doing and how you get it done.
“My Soul is in charge of how my energy is used –
even when I’m distracted by ____________.”
Butterfly Medicine can help you remember to tap into the most positive energies available to you, no matter where you are.
“I relax and use the most beneficial energies possible to manifest this project.”
Now that you have the proper focus, position, agreements, purpose and energy, let Starlight Medicine help you put it all together. What is the next best step for you to take to help you with your project?
Congratulations! You’ve just pulled yourself back from the dangers of a distracted mind. Get up and move around a bit to help this settle and get integrated.
In the Seventh Tutorial, you’ll get an opportunity to experience how Gifts from the Rainforest can help you take aim at the concept of reciprocity.
The Intuitive Learning Circles should not be considered as an exclusive method of treatment. The appropriate medical or psychotherapeutic authorities should be consulted for the diagnosis and treatment for any medical or psychological condition. The information and practices described in Gifts from the Rainforest or this website are best considered as an adjunct to orthodox medical or psychological treatments.
Future pacing is an extra-intuitive activity that isn’t required, but can really help you excel by anchoring positive outcomes into your Learning Mind…
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 in your previous mind exercise.
Start Future Pacing by Getting Calm and Relaxed
Use River Medicine to relax and adjust the volume on your senses.
Remember that when your senses are out of balance, it’s easy to get lost and fall out of your natural flow.
River Medicine beckons us to calm down and flow with the river of life. When we allow this experience, we can hear the truth of the heart and Soul more clearly.
One way to do that is to gaze softly at the Circle and imagine that you’re floating on a calm, benevolent body of water. Take the time to breathe deeply. Once you feel calmer, you’re ready to open your senses to new solutions and gifts.
Gently remind yourself about your objective: “What am I proposing to do?”
Then, follow up with, “If I follow the course of that action, what’s most likely to happen?”
Once you feel more relaxed and calm, use this sequence of Intuitive Learning Circles and positive affirmations to help you future pace withthe very best qualities to follow through on what you’ve learned.
Future Pacing from The Learning Mind
“I release harmful ingredients and access beneficial ingredients.”
If you need to use the symbols and positive affirmations from The Essential Human to help you accessthe very best qualities to nurture your intuitive talents, this is a good time to do it.
Choose from numbers 1 – 42 with the same affirmation:
“I release harmful ingredients and access beneficial ingredients.”
Here are a couple of examples of how you might do that. The first line is about what you want to let go of or close the door on: “I release harmful or extreme thinking patterns.”
The second line is about what you want to open up to: “I now make a commitment to cultivate prosperous thoughts from my Soul.”
“I let go of past resentments and grievances.”
“I now hold hope in my heart to heal me in the present.”
Set Yourself Up for Success
Imagine that you can access your seeds of karma that will help you actualize your objective. Gather all the seeds of your good deeds in the center, blank area of this Circle.
“I access my beneficial karma for actualizing balanced and helpful _________.”
“I plant new karmic seeds for the conditions I need to be happier, healthier and to actualize my heartfelt objectives.”
Make sure you plant them in your personal garden that lives in your heart.
“I plant beneficial seeds in my garden and ask for blessings in accordance with the highest good. I am securely included in the equation.”
Let go of any harmful or inappropriate energies or mental/emotional patterns that no longer serve you. Release them to the Light to be set free and purified.
“I gather destructive patterns or energies and release them to the Light. I dissolve my connection to them, so that they may be set free and purified.”
Please note: Never send pain or harmful energies into the Earth to be neutralized, she already has too much to handle now. Use the Earth for planting seeds of life, health and happiness – not death, illness and unhappiness!
Visualize any hidden channels or sewage pipes for negative energies collapsing in on themselves.
“Old channels of ______________ are collapsing.”
Close all holes or leaks that lead back to illness or suffering.
“All holes are sealed and healed.” “I follow the direction of my Soul’s protection.”
Now you’re ready for your Soul to connect you with the grail of gratitude located in your personal garden and use it to empower your highest good.
“I use my Soul’s divine connection to nourish what’s in my highest good.”
“I am empowered to learn how I can strengthen ________ and _________.”
Being grounded helps you bring what you’ve learned “down to Earth” so you can increase productivity and actualize your objective. Let’s get grounded in the New Paradigm before 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 present and grounded in the New Paradigm.”
Now you’re ready to tune into the Center of your being. Go within and ask your heart: How will it feel to actualize my objective in the future?
What about later today or tomorrow?
A month from now?
How does it feel a year from now?
The mind intuitively appreciates closure. Finish it all up now by sealing and healing any holes that lead back to old, harmful pathways of suffering.
“All holes are sealed and healed.” “I follow the direction of my Soul’s protection.”
You can thank yourself for taking the time today to learn how Future Pacing can accelerate your learning and ability to manifest your objective in the New Paradigm – a gift that will surely keep on giving!
Be sure to rest now and do something nice for yourself!

Welcome to an energy clearing that uses the Intuitive Learning Circles to help you reduce confusion and set things right by activating your imagination and renegotiating key agreements about your identity.
If you are in the process of changing your career, where you live, your relationships or your priorities, you’re finding out how much energy old identities hold and how hard it can be to let them go. The stories we keep up about ourselves are powerful and take a lot of energy.
Perhaps you’re making changes in your family life. Maybe the career you invested so much in is no longer relevant. You may want to retire or even wonder whether the whole way you’ve been thinking about yourself is harmful to your well being.
So often, when we want a change, we think it will just happen automatically!
It’s easy to forget that you had agreements around those relationships or activities and they literally structured how you went about your day. The habits, memories and intentions that came with them helped you generate your life up until this point and have become part of your identity. That identity could also have roots in collective, past life or ancestral experiences. Regardless of how they got there, they are all important and need to be tended to, even the difficult ones!
To Reduce Confusion it’s important to examine Soul Contracts and other agreements to see if they need to be either:
Released completely or
Re-negotiated to adjust to what’s needed now.
You may say, “I don’t have time for this right now. There’s too much going on. It doesn’t really matter, does it?”
Yes, it does matter, because you matter. Your relationships matter. What you do matters. In fact, when there’s a lot going on, that’s the verybest time to examine who you are and who you want to be at this pivotal time in your life.
If you just barge forward into what you think you want now without handling your agreements, you’ll simply go back to what you’ve always done before. The times are too significant to just return to the old status quo! That will just make things harder for everyone – especially you!
If you’re willing to slow down just a little, and make your agreements a priority now rather than later, you can free up a lot of repressed or suppressed energy. Even more importantly, you’ll be amazed at how much conflict and confusion you can bypass altogether!
When you can be fully present and without attachments to the old story, whatever your future holds will have much less baggage.
A wise person once said, “when one door closes, another one opens.” and “what you put out, comes back to you.” The principles behind re-negotiating healthy agreements absolutely concur with those ideas. If we don’t change our agreements – especially institutional, cultural agreements – the old stories will keep coming back to us even when we thought we had outgrown them!
The intention of this mind exercise is to acknowledge who you’ve been and where you’ve come from by examining your agreements with respect so that you are truly free and open to create your new identity!
In this experience, you’re going to create a ceremony for reducing confusion and preparing for a prosperous new beginning by using your imagination, intuition and common sense to paint a new picture. All you need to do is relax and gaze softly at the Circles while you follow the directions that go along with each one. If you want, bring along something to write on or draw with!
Mind Body Integration
For best results, look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of your body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.
Feel free to move at anytime in any way to help you embody your experience!
Begin by bringing in your Soul and Higher Self to oversee the process of reducing confusion around your identity.
Breathe deeply and open up communication with your heart and Soul. Doing this will help you to know what’s truly important to you about making this transition safely and effectively.
Prepare to Release Your Current Conception of Yourself
This Reiki Chakra Key can help you be more clear about what you would like to change so you can reduce confusion. Relax with it and start with how you’re seeing yourself in your current situation. Is there something about what you see that you’d like to change?
Now, take a few moments to imagine how you would prefer to see yourself.
Enlist a Healing Balm That Will Help You Detach and Mend Any Wounds.
Use this Key to soften the energy around how you’ve been seeing yourself. Like a healing balm, imagine that a loving coat of peace and comfort is pouring down over you – helping you to let go.
If you like, go back up to the Personality Chakra Key and see if anything has changed.
The Importance of Agreements
The mind works through agreements. Transitioning out of an identity and setting up a new life goes so much easier when you release agreements with the parts of your life that are over and done with.
That includes the contracts or agreements around relationships: the people, the places and the organizations that you’re going to be moving beyond. Those relationships may not be over, but surely they are going to change! Free up your energy with this Circle and let go of those agreements.
“I let go of all Soul Agreements that are complete – over and done with. I allow the necessary changes to take place.”
See completed debts, vows and resentments burn up like old contracts in a beautiful, violet flame.
If you’ve completed an important project with a person, an organization or a special place, acknowledge it by releasing that contract into the fire. This would include places you used to frequent, raising any children, building a career, finishing school or being in a relationship of any kind.
You have completed that project successfully and what you did with that mattered!
You also have agreements with yourself that need to be released or renegotiated in order to reduce confusion about who you are now.
You may have made an agreement with yourself about yourself when you were younger. You could have decided that certain things just weren’t going to be possible for you, so why try? You may have given way your power, your space or even your body! If those agreements are still operating somewhere in your psyche, you can release them now with this Circle.
Your nervous system holds the energy of those agreements. To let go, start at the bottom of the line and the bottom of your spine.
As you move up, you can imagine locks unlocking – freeing each vertebrae from the chains of outdated, oppressive agreements – all the way up to the top of your spine. Be sure to do that gently, both crossed and uncrossed. Here’s some suggested affirmations:
I let go of finished agreements around the identity of __________.”
“I let go of being abused, disempowered, confused or _________. I am free of any enslavement. My Soul is now in charge of who I am, what I’m able to do and how I behave.”
I release agreements that interfere with my health, my productivity, prosperity and self-confidence.”“I decide that my body and mind is no longer a place for _______ or ________.” “I utilize my gifts and talents to create ________ and ________.” Etc. You get the idea!
Reduce Confusion by “Setting Things Right”.
A helpful metaphor for setting things right is to think of your life like a puzzle. That puzzle consists of many pieces – like your karma and other aspects of your Soul or Essential Self, including various skills, dreams, talents and gifts.
If you don’t have all your puzzle pieces or if you’ve gotten your pieces mixed up in someone else’s puzzle, things won’t come together correctly.
Think about it. If you have a box of puzzle pieces from five different puzzles, it’s going to be very difficult to sort out what really needs to happen. Whose puzzle is it?
Even worse, what if you realize that you’re not working on your puzzle at all? That would really explain your confusion! Until you’ve set things right, you will continue to be confused and unable to put it all together.
Use these positive affirmations to help you set things right: “My life is a puzzle that I’m putting together. I’m willing to set things right in accordance with what I need now.”
“I decide to release any puzzle or puzzle pieces that don’t belong with me and call back what does.” Visualize the transfer taking place.
“I work on my puzzle and allow others to work on theirs.” Visualize your true puzzle coming together, with every piece in place!
Get Completely Present So That You Can Make Sense of Things and Reclaim Soul Integrity.
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.
If you need extra help, go back up to the Release Attachments Key.
Now You’re Ready to Clear Up Old Baggage.
With this new awareness, you can go into more detail. Consciously let go of anything that doesn’t really belong to you and needs to be returned. A lot of this is energetic in nature so, it’s best to imagine those things going to the Light. If you think of something that you actually, physically need to return to someone, make a note of it and plan to return it.
“I decide to reduce confusion by returning anything that belongs to someone else. That includes their confusion! All debts, confusions and misunderstandings are set right.”
Do that both crossed and uncrossed.
You can do the same with people. Maybe there are a few people that still cling to you for reasons of their own. It could be neediness, fear, anger, jealousy, co-dependence or any kind of pain and suffering. They need their energy to help themselves, so send it back to them or wherever it belongs in accordance with the highest good. We want everyone to be free to move on.
As part of setting things right, you need to reciprocate. For example, there could be some people that you cling to as well. You will want to reclaim your authority by recalling all parts and/or functions that have attached to others, yet really belong with you.
“I call back all parts or functions that have attached to others for any reason.”
Include your personal power, your principles, your energy, dreams, special abilities, talents and gifts. You will need these things as you create your new identity.
Forgive Old Debts.
If you’re willing to let go of any harmful intentions, grudges or resentments, you’ll be doing everyone a favor – especially you! Remember, what you put out comes back to you, so it’s in your own best interests to forgive yourself and put those conflicts to rest by letting them go to the Light.
If you like, you can imagine a beautiful Light opening up to you with a place for you to surrender your resentments and disagreements. All debts are forgiven.
Repair Any Reversals or Glitches in Your Energy System That Would Prevent Resolution.
Use this chart to help you make corrections. Relax and sense your overall energy. If it feels jagged, reversed or disjointed, stay with the Key until the energy smooths out. Do this both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body.
Release Any Old, Out of Date or Harmful Intentions.
Now is a good time to clear up any old intentions and unconscious attachments that go along with it.
Deeply relax as you gaze into the center open space of this Circle for the grandmother of tobacco – Mapacho. Imagine any prayer, wish, intention or agenda that may be keeping you attached to your old identities.
See them like wisps of smoke, clearing the way to reveal forgotten seeds of desire, aversion and ignorance, including other harmful intentions such as ancestral curses, filial and financial obligations and outdated societal vows.
These could include intentions from past lives or earlier in this life. You might be carrying them for others because of a family identity of “fixer,” “rebel” or “scapegoat” (this might explain why certain people or situations keep coming back time after time).
It is tremendously beneficial to clear them out now, so that you don’t inadvertently reignite them when you move forward with your new choices.
Now It’s Time to Call Back Lost or Confused Aspects of Your Essence.
This is like a Soul Retrieval. Use this chart to call back all parts of your Essence that may have gotten lost or fragmented along the way in your life.
“I reclaim my Essence with appreciation and gratitude.”
Note: It’s worth it to think back on any special places or experiences you’ve released your agreements with. A fragmented part of yourself could very likely be stuck or wandering around in those places. Call them back so that you can live in wholeness!
Shine Light on Who You Really Are
Opening up to the Light will help you bring in a new vision of who you can be and what is possible for you to experience.
“I let the Light shine in.”
“I see myself _________, ________ and ___________.”
Center Yourself in your Solar Plexus Chakra.
Your Essential Self functions best when it’s unified and positioned in your Solar Plexus Chakra.
Envision your Self standing upright and facing forward to enhance your gut instinct.
“I position myself correctly to manifest my Soul’s purpose.”
“I am standing upright and facing forward so that I can do my very best.”
“I am empowered to follow through on the changes necessary to reduce confusion.”
“My new identity is empowered through Divine Connection to my Source.”
Clear Destructive Emotional or Mental Patterns.
There are probably many old patterns that need to be cleared away by now. Use this symbol to dissolve any harmful mental or emotional patterns that are ready to be transmuted. See those attachments or behavioral structures like a large cloud bank that you can consciously send to the Light. Dissolve them into pure sunlight – the darkness all 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 health, happiness and life – not illness, unhappiness and destruction!
When One Door Closes, Another One Opens.
Let this Circle help you close those old doors and pathways to those old patterns so that you can reduce confusion and your new path can become clear.
“All old doors, holes or pathways are sealed and healed.
I follow the direction of healthy protection.”
Search for any of the old habits and behaviors of your old identity and close the drains that they’ve been stealing from your time, energy and environment.
“I close down all harmful energy channels.”
“My mind and body are open and clear to receive generative life force.”
“I communicate safely through this Divine force.”
“My energy connects and interacts prosperously with the New Paradigm.”
Express Gratitude By Getting Grounded.
Finally! Thank all the people, places and experiences that have been a part of your life. Whether you liked them or not, they have helped you become who you are today. Put both feet on the floor and get grounded in the New Paradigm based on equity, cooperation and sustainable prosperity.
This is a good time to find and follow through on a simple action that you know will help you reduce confusion and move on.

Invest in a Feng Shui Assessment For Your Home to Enhance Your Health, Happiness and Prosperity ~
Feng Shui (pronunced “fung shway”) is a Chinese term that means “wind and water” symbolizing the natural flow of “chi” or life energy that flows through our environment and supports life. Predating Taoism and Confucianism, this ancient art of flow and placement in one’s environment has been used to facilitate balance and well being in every important aspect of life. It has also been used to ensure that we are in the “right place at the right time.”
Certain changes in your life may cause an imbalance that would benefit from a Feng Shui Assessment or Re-assessment including:
Health – illness, accidents, sudden sensitivity to environment, death.
Relationship Changes – engagements, marriage, births, divorce, children or other family members moving out or in.
Safety – serious or frequent injury, robbery, assault or other forms of violence.
Financial – sudden downturn in business, loss of job, difficulty holding a job or changing careers, bankruptcy.
Moving or remodeling.
General changes of direction – in lifestyle, livelihood, personal health and goals.
As you can see, a feng shui assessment can be very useful anytime you’re going through a significant change. Even a change of seasons.
The process we use at Soul Resources helps you to change the energy and optimize your chances for success in all areas of your life.
An effective Feng Shui clearing can literally clear the energy running through your home or office. The process can also help you to correct instability and “take apart” destructive patterns that are causing you and your family harm. Once the imbalances are corrected in your environment, personal growth and health is enhanced. Your sense of timing improves, chaos is reduced and changes in life direction are supported.

Do You Feel Overwhelmed About What’s Next? Finding Moderation is the Key to Navigating Extremes.
Kuan Yin has been helping us to transition from the old paradigm based on greed and extremism to a new paradigm of equality, co-operation and sustainable prosperity. Her advice about finding moderation springs from the I Ching, an ancient book of divination that follows the flow of the cosmos. Because of that, her insight comes from a different perspective than ours.
Kuan Yin’s Readings and Transformation Games can help you to identify problems, change your focus to positive solutions, ground yourself and get in the present. Simply relax and gaze at the Circles while contemplating Kuan Yins words. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek.
Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for: Hexagram # 15 – Finding Moderation
“In times of difficulty and danger, 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 finding MODERATION as the best way to make progress amidst chaos. The suggestion is to disengage from confusing extremes or opinionated attitudes and instead, follow the guidance that comes from within. In almost any situation, if you are able to walk the middle road between extremes, there will be improvement in whatever you undertake.”
Finding Moderation and Following that Path ~
The Universe holds a natural urge towards finding MODERATION. Unfortunately, the karma (cause and effect) for instability has been triggered and must be dealt with in one way or the other. Fortunately, human beings also have a natural urge to find MODERATION because it is the most sensible flow to follow that will mitigate extremes.
Most people are navigating through one or another of these general karmic patterns:
Getting sucked into a negative malaise of mental, emotional, physical or spiritual health.
Stuck in frustration or a rebellious refusal to change.
Getting scattered or revisiting regressive patterns from the past, or
Pulling themselves together into a centered position of empowered authority.
Initial Evaluation:As you softly gaze at this Circle, see which of these patterns you are currently experiencing. Ask yourself:
“Am I generally experiencing pattern #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.
Regardless of what’s happening, you can make your life easier by letting go of old agreements or karma that’s over and done with. This game will help you do that.
First, Let’s Address Confusion that’s Caused by Collective Shock.
Let’s face it. The past few years have been filled with one jarring event after another. Shocking events are happening daily. Give yourself and others a break by realizing that you might be caught in a reactive pattern because you’ve received so many repeated shocks to your system. See what happens if you look at this Circle and relax for a minute or so. Breathe deeply and imagine that the unpreferred mindset is melting away like ice melting under the light of the Sun.
You may find that your attachment to those reactive patterns could melt away as well!
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 any time in any way to help you embody your experience!
The Underlying Structures of Our Lives Are Deteriorating Rapidly.
From earthquakes to power outages to social institutions in disarray, it’s important to acknowledge the continuous and ongoing affect that their disappearances have on us. Use this Circle to help you close up the drains that are exhausting you.
“I shut down all drains that are causing me to lose energy.”
Finding Moderation in Your Emotional Responses.
Release your Attachments to the Old Paradigm.
The old paradigm was built on extreme and oppressive social, religious and moral dogmas that use force and fear to control others. Most of us are still tapping into them to one degree the other because they’ve been wired into how we react to events.
It would be wise to detach from that way of thinking and functioning because it has lost its ground. To find out if you’re still giving them power, ask yourself:
“Am I unconsciously tapping into toxic emotions?”
Remember, emotions are just energy in motion. They are not solid things and they aren’t who you are! Let this Soul Prayer Chart help you find the flow of harmful emotions that are running through your mind so that you can effectively detach from them.
The recent change from the Piscean Age (Water) to the Aquarian Age (Air) has caused some instability in how we process our thoughts and emotions. You can decide that your response to events can be more Air based than Water based. Here are some suggested affirmations to use with this diagram:
“I decide to bring my intuition into balance.”
“I lead with rational thought rather than emotional reactions.”
“I do my best to keep my mind positive and my intention clear.”
My wellbeing is important and I decide to stay balanced and moderate.”
Release Codependent Behaviors.
Protect Yourself from Being Dumped On or Scapegoated.
In times of increased confusion and instability, it’s common for people who want to avoid responsibility to systemically dump their issues, problems and karma onto others who they hope will accept the blame.
You don’t have to handle irresponsible people’s problems. Send them back – to each their own!
People who have a tendency to take on other people’s problems are often:
mistakenly organizing their life around the problem and being “the fixer.”
Instead, choose to organize around the solution, which includes your well-being and being kind to yourself.
unconsciously fueling the problem by trying harder and doubling down with their energy and attention.
Instead, disconnect from how your energy is being drained and redirect your energy to your own priorities.
internalizing the other person’s responsibility and judging themselves -“I’m not a nice person if I don’t do what they want me to do.”
Instead, realize you are taking on more than your part of the situation, which causes you harm and diminishes your ability to respond in the most effective way.
If you’ve been trained to fix things when other people are shirking their responsibilities, you can trap yourself by taking on more than your part of a difficult situation. You can clarify this by asking yourself these questions:
“What is my part in this situation? What am I actually responsible for?”
“Is my desire to help clear, or is it twisted in some way?”
“What could I do in this situation that would actually be helpful?”
When we buy into codependent behaviors, we are inadvertently complicating matters and preventing things from working themselves out in a simpler, more direct way.
To help you avoid this trap and set things right, use this symbol with the affirmations to release attachments to the malaise of destructive behavior:
“I let go of attachments and blame. I detach from sticky, toxic energies.”
I create autonomy and resilient optimism.”
Like a healing balm, imagine that a loving coat of peace and comfort is pouring down over you!
These affirmations will also help with this Circle:
“I correct or move past reversals, blockages and jagged energies.”
“I have a clear and direct connection with my Soul.”
Let Go of Harmful Karmic Agreements and Energies.
Use this Soul Contract Circle to help you identify and release any social, familial or religious agreements that prevent you from being present for yourself or that pull you out of balance. Simply gaze softly at the Circle while you use the affirmations.
“I release any agreement that says I’m powerless or have no choice.”
“I release all agreements to allow myself to be shamed, blamed or manipulated in any way.”
“I let go of my agreements to stay stuck in or comply with harmful behaviors associated with the old paradigm.” (extremism, slavery, deceit, greed, prejudice, intimidation, control, manipulation, dishonesty, co-dependence, etc.)
“I clarify my priorities and communicate them directly and with kindness.” “I have autonomy over my body, my mind, my energy and how I use them.”
Let Go of Intentions That You Don’t Need Anymore.
Check agreements and intentions with family, friends or business relationships that cause conflict and block your ability to move forward freely. Consider old jobs, organizations you’ve been involved with – religious institutions, political agendas, completed projects, places you’ve lived, modes of transportation, ways of communicating or doing business, etc.
“I let go of out-dated, extreme or contradictory intentions that are harmful to me.”
What intentions will actually serve you now? Do they need to be clarified, simplified or re-organized? What do you need to have happen for yourself?
“My intentions are moderate and genuinely helpful.”
Unearth Old Emotional Garbage and Karmic Patterns.
Use this symbol for Dissolving Destructive Blueprints to identify and release any mental or emotional patterns that are causing you harm. See the Light opening up so that you can surrender them:
“I gather destructive patterns or energies and release them to the Light. I dissolve my connection to them, so that they may be set free and transformed.”
Please note: Never send pain or harmful energies into the Earth to be neutralized, she already has too much to handle now. Use the Earth for planting seeds of life, health and happiness – not death, illness and unhappiness!
Close the Door on Harmful Paths or Unnecessary Suffering.
Finish this part of the game by closing the door on harmful activities, agendas and pathways that lead back to unhealthy patterns. Take all the time you need. There are probably a lot of them.
“All doors and pathways that lead to suffering are sealed and healed.” “I follow the direction of healthy protection.”
Congratulations! You will probably want to take a short break to move around and let all this integrate. Come back in a few minutes, so you can apply all this newfound freedom to your future!
Refocus Your Energy to Clarify Your Priorities.
Visualize what’s truly important to you in the center open space of this Circle. Do you feel uncenters and your energy scattered? If so, take a moment to center yourself in your solar plexus area and aim your energy in the center open space like a bull’s eye.
“I center myself and consciously direct my energy towards truly beneficial activities and priorities.”
Don’t forget to include appropriate rest, fun and relaxation!
Recalibrate Your Energy to Truly Support What You Need Now.
Devote your energy to finding MODERATION in how you use your energy.
“I connect with my Heart Center and am guided by my true Spiritual Source.”
“I exist and am empowered to create a hopeful future and ________.”
Finish by Invoking Protection and Clarity of Mind:
“I close down all harmful energy channels from the old paradigm.”
“My mind is open and clear to receive generative life force.” “I learn to utilize the element of Air to effectively manifest health and happiness.”
Welcome to the Middle Road! You probably feel much more balance. Go back to the Initial Evaluation for the game and see what has changed.
If you feel complete, congratulations! Go out for a walk to integrate and get grounded.
If you feel incomplete, you can continue to the Extra-intuitive Activities part of this process and let go of a few extreme collective mindsets that can get in the way of finding MODERATION:
There are several other decisions to explore that might really improve how you’re dealing with your situation.
Extreme #1: The need to be liked and approved of by others.
Here is the prime example, ‘Being liked = being important and having purpose.’ You might want to let go of that, because this is a terrible time to base your self-worth on how other people react to you.
“I decide that my worth comes from within. I let go of the need for approval.”
“I build my relationships out of sincere goodwill from my heart, not from projected expectations of self-importance.”
Extreme #2: The ‘more is better’ or ‘bigger is better’ syndrome.
For example: The Sun is good, however too much Sun causes cancer. Butter is good, yet too much butter causes weight gain, etc. Another social meme that explains the mindset is: ‘The sky is the limit. I want it all now, so I should be able to have it all now!’
“I am clear about who I am and what’s in my best interest.“
“I decide that clear, MODERATE limits enhance my wellbeing.”
Use this Circle like a mirror and clear away any markings or old graffiti that obscure the pure energy signature of your Soul.
Extreme #3: The ‘I’m not doing enough/doing too much” dichotomy.
Finding MODERATION means putting in just the right amount of effort to get the desired result. Think Goldilocks – not too much and not too little… just right.
If you’re uncomfortable because you’re feeling blocked or scattered, there may be a good reason. Do you know what it is? Suddenly heading off into fifteen different directions will probably backfire on you badly.
If you’re sending your energy in too many directions, stop and regain your center. Thoughtful consideration about what you really need is what’s most important now.
“What do I really need to focus on right now? What will help me do that?”
Now that you’ve made choices about finding moderation you can bring order and new happiness into your environment!”
For many people, finding MODERATIONsignifies an opportunity to go within and expel deep patterns of fanaticism within their psyche so that they can evolve and arise from that pattern, much as a beautiful lotus arises from the muck and mire at the bottom of a pond.”
