If you are confused, feeling out of balance or in need of overwhelm help – Welcome! You are in the right place!
SOS offers support for your inner journey…
What are the main reasons a person may need overwhelm help?
The first reason would be that there’s simply too much information coming at the person and their mind is not able to filter priorities properly.
The second reason would be that the person has placed too much of their attention and energy on a certain problem or goal that is unrealistic or cannot be accomplished under the current circumstances.
The third reason why a person would need overwhelm help would be that the way forward has become obscured. The circumstances are dark, dim, unclear or hard to understand.
The fourth reason could be that the environment has become too toxic or chaotic for a person to be able to cope in the way that they normally would.
All of these reasons have a negative effect on your physical health and can put stress on your mental / emotional health as well.
Unfortunately, people are becoming more and more overwhelmed by sudden emotional or environmental changes, toxic entanglements or triggered PTSD episodes.
A person needing overwhelm help could experience:
- Sudden and extreme exhaustion.
- Fight or flight panic attacks.
- Unexplained feelings of emergency; anxiety, depression and fear.
- Increased irritation and susceptibility to illnesses, viruses or colds.
It’s not a good idea to remain in a fight or flight state for long. When a person is in a chronic state of overwhelm, the stage is set for depression, illness or paranoia to set in. If these symptoms are already present, the person may experience an overload or energy collapse.
The self-care formulas from SOS Soul Oriented Solutions gently interrupt
unhealthy brain activity and then replace it with constructive thoughts and energy flow.
They are simple and easy to follow by design. When going through a formula, think of it as being gently led from a dark place into the light where you can connect with Hope.
The Intuitive Learning Circles stimulate the central nervous system in order to assist it in its natural healing process of expelling trauma and the stuck energy that surrounds it. Using SOS as a daily practice is a powerful form of self-healing with affirmations where you can easily slow down, communicate with your unconscious and reorganize how you’re taking care of yourself.
SOS Overwhelm Help offers you support at any time
of the day or night ~
Fortunately, the five Self-care Formulas listed below are designed to help “reboot” your energy and put you back in balance when you’re feeling overwhelmed. Taking a few minutes to go through the appropriate formula will give a person immediate help for coping with emotional stress.
Introducing the SOS Symbol ~
The SOS symbol and formulas have been helping the public since Hurricane Katrina. Please SHARE with anyone you feel could benefit.
Since the Intuitive Learning Circles are all about self-discovery and learning to use your intuition, it makes sense to use a simple and natural way to decide – using your intuition!
Below there’s a list of the Self-care Formulas numbered 1 – 5.
Take a moment and think about what’s going on for you and then gently gaze at the SOS symbol. Relax for a moment or two.
When you’re ready, let the SOS symbol help you access a simple “yes” or “no” answer to this question:
“Am I overwhelmed or experiencing an energy overload?
If “yes,” which formula will help me? 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5?”
Whatever number comes to mind, go to that formula and read what it’s about. If it fits, click on the link and follow the directions.
Each formula is designed to gently lead you back into balance using positive affirmations and images that will help you recover.
This self-care formula uses the Intuitive Learning Circle method for getting your mind, body and emotions “unstuck” from a recent traumatic experience and you are:
~ Feeling stuck, numb, lost or helpless
~ Caught in a blank or fixed state of mind
~ Waking up at night worried, with obsessive thoughts
~ Alternately feeling trapped and shattered.
This self-care formula uses the Intuitive Learning Circles to resolve shock when your life has been upended and you are:
~ Feeling scattered, surprised, scared or vulnerable
~ Dealing with an environmental disaster or its aftermath
~ Reliving painful experiences
~ Having trouble thinking or planning clearly.
Use this PTSD self-care formula when you are:
~ Feeling lost, hopeless or out of balance
~ Anxious or upset due to a traumatic experience
~ Weakened and want to regain your strength
~ Triggered by body memories of a traumatic event
~ Having a flashback or out of body experience.
Use this formula when you’re overwhelmed by day to day stresses and feeling:
~ Exhausted, overwhelmed or confused
~ Out of balance
~ Taking on too much – doing too much
~ Going too fast and need to slow down.
You can use this formula like a prayer 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.
SOS is a hopeful self-care practice you can give yourself anytime ~
It’s important to take plenty of time with each question and continually breathe with full breaths. Shallow breathing inhibits the healing process and taking plenty of time counteracts the feeling of emergency.
In just a few minutes a person can get reconnected so that their energy feels balanced again. Cognitive function improves, negativity is dispelled and hope can return!
Whether you are living with someone who has PTSD or suffer from it yourself, these five formulas are powerful tools to keep handy.

Soul Oriented Solutions: A Gentle Meditation about Emotional Stress and Self-care for Loss ~
Many people are experiencing deep levels of anxiousness, distress and fear around our current situation due to a variety of events. These feelings can come on suddenly and be very overwhelming. You might have lost a relative, a job or an important friendship. You could be facing a health challenge or even a loss in your purpose and sense of self.
Or, you may be sitting on the sidelines, watching someone you love suffer while you feel at a loss for something helpful to do. In situations like these, it can take a while to regain your balance. What are some ways to provide self-care for loss and bring some level of emotional relief?
If you can find a way to tune into your deepest resources, you’ll discover that you’re never completely alone, even in your darkest hours.
To help out, I’d like to share this brief formula that uses positive 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
- Feeling pulled into a negative state of mind
- 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
- Asking for ways to be genuinely helpful.
Here’s a short example of how the Circles can prepare you to 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 focus them so that I can feel calmer and more aware of what’s important in my situation.”
“I use my senses to be more aware of where I am and what I’m doing.”
“I focus on thoughts and actions that are genuinely helpful and productive.”
Next, you can continue to prepare for Self-care for Loss by allowing this Reiki Chakra Key to help you tap into 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 understand and have compassion for the suffering of myself and others.”
“I open my heart to courage and the possibility of genuine healing.”
Strong emotions or insights may come up. The image may move, rotate, vibrate or change color. Don’t worry. That happens sometimes. It just means it’s 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 continue the process.
Your heartfelt intention is important and needs to be communicated. Use this Reiki Chakra Key to help you connect your prayers with your heart. Focus in on the Master Chakras located on each hand between the thumb and the index finger and let them get open and balanced. Then, imagine you can connect them with your heart. These affirmations can help:
“My prayers are connecting with my heart center.”
“I ask to receive guidance, clarity and healing from my Inner Wisdom.”
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.
Finally, it takes energy to manifest. You may have the feeling that your energy is being drained right out of you or that you’re sending energy to old habits that have been harmful to you. Relax and gaze softly at this Circle. Let it help you deconstruct those old mindsets and close the drains that are exhausting you.
“I shut down all drains that are causing me to lose energy.’
Now you’re ready to begin the main part of your exercise.

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.
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.
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
If you can, imagine that difficulty or burden is beginning to melt and soften up. You can release the tension around anything that’s bothering you right now. Your shoulders are dropped. Your jaw is relaxed. Hardened thoughts are melting.
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 this difficulty. What would it be like if those burdens were lifted? Can you imagine it?
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: Inner Guidance
Gently contemplate this symbol to help you gain insight and spiritual direction about appropriate things to do in this situation.
Imagine you can call upon Love to help heal the situation. Is there something that Love would tell you to do?
Ask to be instructed by Love as you continue along your journey.
Step Eight – Balance
Feel a calmness coming over you.
You feel calmer and calmer with every breath.
Step Nine – 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 Ten – Comfort
Continue to let go and allow your energy to repair itself.
It is not necessary to hold on to any worries, tension or negativity.
Step Eleven: Divine Connection
Fill yourself with strength and the knowledge that you are loved.
You are filled with a Divine Connection to your Spirit.
Step Twelve: Closure
In your minds eye, close the doors to any pathways that keep the pain and suffering open. You are connected through Love now and will always be.
Let this healing be sealed with Love and Light.
Step Thirteen: Divine Blessings
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.
Your mind is open and clear to receive healing and generative life force.
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 recovery.
