Managing Anxiety in the Midst of Collective Fear

SOS: A Mind Exercise for Managing Anxiety  ~

Managing Anxiety

Rheanni Lightwater - Managing Anxiety

When we’re feeling anxiety, it’s usually directly related to the levels of uncertainty we’re experiencing. In normal times, managing anxiety has been an individual matter and has to do with being okay with not knowing what’s going to happen.

However, due to the pandemic, society in general is experiencing existential levels of uncertainty, which in turn increases our collective levels of anxiety. None of us knows what’s going to happen! Whether it be reopening the schools, the upcoming election or handling economic stress, being able to focus your attention on something positive may simply seem out of the question.

These feelings can come on suddenly and be very overwhelming. For example, the other day I went to the grocery store and while waiting in line, I could feel myself starting to get elevated. Even though the actual situation wasn’t all that bad, I was keenly aware of a malaise and emotional backdrop made up of fear, dissatisfaction and anxiety.

Thank goodness I quickly released my agreement to buy into it and then went through this handy exercise once I got home to help me gently separate from the panic and keep my thoughts from running away too far!

Managing Anxiety in the Midst of Collective Fear uses affirmations and the Intuitive Learning Circles™ that can help when you are:

  • Picking up on anxiety around you
  • Getting anxious about an important decision
  • Experiencing performance anxiety
  • Overstimulated or feeling under attack
  • Feeling dizzy or overwhelmed
  • Unable to follow through due to anxiety.

Set aside about ten to fifteen minutes. Start by reading the directions: Gaze at each Circle for approximately two minutes. A longer or shorter time may be necessary. Let yourself breathe and relax as much as possible.

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

Contemplate the positive affirmations that go with this Circle for a minute or so:

“I bring my senses into balance.”

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

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

“I focus on thoughts and actions that are helpful and in my best interest.”

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

Managing Anxiety

This exercise will help you slow down, pull your thoughts together and help you take good care of yourself.

Step One: Awareness

Breathe in and gently gaze at the Circle. While you exhale, affirm to yourself:
“I am connected, aware and guided by the truth.”

“Taking good care of myself is important.”

 

Step Two – Balance

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

Pay special attention to your tailbone.

 

Step Three – Protection

Continue to breathe and imagine yourself in an environment that’s very safe and peaceful.
You are completely protected here.

 

Step Four ~ Clarity

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

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

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

 

Step Five – Slow Motion

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


Again, do that both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body.

 

Step Six – Trust

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

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

 

Step Seven – Steadfast

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

 

Step Eight – Breath

Let this Circle help you open up your breath now.
Your lungs work together with your heart to keep oxygen flowing through you.
Breathing in the breath of life and exhaling…

 

Step Nine – Equilibrium

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

 

Step Ten – Resolution

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

“I am calming down. Everything is relaxing.”

 

Step Eleven – Release

Imagine that you’re completely surrounded by a sphere of light filled with strength, courage and determination. Take as long as you like with this.

“I am filled with strength and determination.

I am strong and deflect the excess energy of  collective anxiety.” 

 

Step Twelve – Emotional Freedom

Dissolve your connection to the mental and emotional malaise that’s behind our collective anxiety. Use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to clear the patterns from your mental continuum and send them to the Sun to be purified. 

Then, collapse the energetic sewers that spread the malaise.

Finish this formula by closing the doors in your mind that lead to collective anxiety and fear.

Closure for Mind Body Healing

 

After you’ve gone through the entire formula, consider taking a brisk walk or exercising to help discharge your excess energy. When you’re ready, see if you can take action on some of the ideas that come to mind.

Self-care for Economic Loss

Soul Oriented Solutions: A Self-care Formula for Loss and Economic Stress ~

Self-care for Loss

Rheanni Lightwater CHT, CKP Self-care for Loss

Many people are experiencing deep levels of anxiousness, distress and fear around our current economic situation due to the pandemic. These feelings can come on suddenly and be very overwhelming. What are some ways to provide self-care for loss and bring some level of emotional relief?

To help out, I’d like to share this brief exercise from RESOLVE that uses affirmations and the Intuitive Learning Circles™. You can use it whenever you are:

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

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

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

“I bring my senses into balance.”

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

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

“I focus on thoughts and actions that are helpful and in my best interest.”

 

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

“I am filled with compassion for the suffering of myself and others. I open my heart to the possibility of healing and moving forward.”

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

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

Self-care for Loss

Step One: Asking for Help

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

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

For best results, put your hands on your knees and breathe in through your nose 4 times, exhaling with a long “hoo” sound. Do that three times (three sets of four breaths).

 

Step Two – Support

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

Miracles - Self-care for Loss

Put your hands on your knees again and breathe in through your nose 3 times, exhaling with a long “haa” sound. Do that four times (four sets of three breaths).

 

Step Three ~ Peace

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

 

Step Four – Release

Where are you holding tension? Use this Circle to scan your body.

You can release the tension around anything that’s bothering you right now. Your shoulders are dropped. Your jaw is relaxed. Keep melting the tension until it’s all gone.


Remember to do that both crossed and uncrossed.

 

Step Five – Soul Vision

Consider what your life could be without those burdens. Sense the experience as much as you can in detail. See it, hear it, taste it, smell it and feel it.

 

Step Six – Remove Your Burdens

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

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

Step Seven – Rebalance

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

 

Step Eight – Cleansing

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

 

Step Nine – Faith

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

 

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

Closure for Mind Body Healing

 

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

Grounding in the Truth to Take Back 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.

This Five Step Mind Exercise from RESOLVE uses positive affirmations and the Intuitive Learning Circles™ to quickly help you when you:

  •  Are having difficulty getting grounded
  •  Feel caught up in a power struggle
  •  Need to disconnect from a meddling or intrusive person
  •  Feel trapped by agendas from other people
  •  Are wasting energy on the past
  •  Are worrying or fearful about the future
  •  Can’t think straight or get dependable guidance
  •  Are experiencing poor boundaries.

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 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.

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 keep myself safe and healthy, ” 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.
