SOS – Overwhelm Help

If you are confused, feeling out of balance or in need of overwhelm help – Welcome! You are in the right place! 

 

SOS for PTSD and Self-care

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.

Overwhelm Help #1 - Too much information

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.

Overwhelm Help #2 - Unrealistic expectations

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.

Overwhelm Help #3 - Future is unclear

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.

Overwhelm Help #4 - Toxic, chaotic environment

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.

Connecting with Hope

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 ~

SOS - Soul Oriented SolutionsSOS stands for Soul Oriented Solutions. The SOS symbol itself helps you tap into your Soul and get unconscious information about what is causing imbalance in you. 

The SOS symbol and formulas have been helping the public since Hurricane Katrina. Please SHARE with anyone you feel could benefit.

Directions:

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?

Helpful Tips

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.

Self-care for Loss In Uncertain Times

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.

Rheanni Lightwater CHT, CKP Self-care for LossSOS - Self-care for LossTo 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 bring my senses into balance.”

“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.

Miracles - Self-care for Loss

 

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

Breathe again.
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.

Grounding in the Truth and Your Power

A Mind Exercise for Grounding In The Truth ~

Grounding in the Truth

Many 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 Mind Exercise can help you, gaze 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 Soul’s purpose.”

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

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

 

In times of difficulty or CONFLICT, your energy might feel very jagged or erratic. Take a moment to smooth things out with this Correction Key.

You will probably feel a lot of energy moving – that’s all right. It just means that 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 accessing a strong connection with your Soul Resources.

We each have our own Soul vibration that amplifies our own autonomy, integrity and good health. Check how your connection is doing with this Soul Prayer Chart and this affirmation:

“I access my unique Soul Vibration for clear and true guidance.”

You’ll know it’s right if the “vibe” feels right in your solar plexus.

 

Step Two: Establish 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.

“I ________________.”

Step Three – Integrity

Strengthen your resolve by detaching from harmful sub-conscious distractions:

“I stop wasting my energy on lies, mind games and no win situations.”

“I disengage from family patterns of control, intolerance and/or grievance.”

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

 

Step Four ~ Self-determination

Connect with your breath and affirm to yourself:

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

“I use them to be present and alert.”

“I use them to actualize my Soul’s purpose.”

 

Step Five – Centering

Bring your awareness and vibe to your heart center and keep breathing:

“I am centered and my heart is strong.”

“I call on my deepest guidance to be present with me.”

“I let go of anxiousness, pain and sorrow.”

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

 

Step Six – Balance

Take all the time you need with the Earth Chakra Key until you feel stable and balanced. See if you can still feel your Soul Vibration.

“I slow down and step carefully.”

“I feel the Earth beneath my feet.”

“I am connected with Mother Earth.”

Grounding in the Truth

 

Step Seven: Integration

To help you ground, gaze softly at this symbol and ask your Spirit to help close down destructive energy channels from the past. Then, ask to be filled with generative life energy and connect with life affirming channels of communication. 

Cross and uncross your hands over the midline of your body as many times as you like until the transformation feels complete.

 

Step Eight: To Each Their Own

Gracefully release all issues, karma and emotional baggage that don’t belong with you:

“I surrender other people’s issues, emotions and karma so I can uncross my own path.”

Once that feels complete, call back what genuinely belongs with you:

“I set things right so that I may move forward in peace.”

 

Step Nine: Grounding

Place both your feet on the ground with your hands on the inside of your knees. Relax and allow your energy to organize into a balanced flow. 

“I am re-organizing around what’s important.”

“I am aligning with the supportive energy of Mother Earth.”

“The Earth supports me and I am grounded.”

 

Step Ten: Completion

Close off the doors and pathways that lead you away from your Soul’s intended path. While gazing at the Circle, imagine any holes or pathways that might have come open during this meditation. They are the ones that are finished and you are done with.

“All completed holes and pathways are healed and sealed.”

“I follow the direction of my Soul’s protection.”

Congratulations! 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.
