Emotional Stress and Memory

Can Emotional Stress Affect Your Memory?

Especially when the stakes are high, you need to remember the important things. However, people often times have memory problems when they’re under a lot of emotional stress, especially if they’re highly sensitive. Why is that and what can be done to help?

Emotional Stress If this sounds like you, you are probably overwhelmed by the uncertainty and ungrounded by the sheer amount of information that you feel you have to process. You might be experiencing symptoms like the ones below. 

  • Processing difficult news 
  • Feeling weak or mentally exhausted
  • Disoriented due to grief or sudden loss
  • Picking up on other peoples pain
  • Noticing an increase in forgetfulness
  • Getting confused more easily than usual

If you are, you’re not alone and you can easily get some relief by going through the Emotional Stress that Affects Memory Exercise out of our Soul Oriented Solutions series.

Directions: Start by confirming that this is the best formula for you with the SOS Symbol.

SOS - Soul Oriented Solutions for Emotional Stress

Next, go through this short mind exercise to understand how emotional stress might be causing memory lapses in your case and what you can do to help yourself. Read each step and then gaze softly at its Circle, one at a time.

Give yourself permission to look at the Circles in any way or from any angle that you like. All you have to do is stay relaxed. If you’re drawn to focus on the center of a Circle, great!

If you come up with a message, an image or instinctively want to trace over the lines, let your imagination guide you. A playful approach reduces stress and opens up possibilities so you can look at your situation from different perspectives.

Developing intuition in this way enhances your personal growth and can keep those creative juices flowing for better mind function.

Caution: the use of this exercise is not intended take the place of appropriate medical and/or psychiatric care. If you are having prolonged or increasing bouts of memory loss, seek the appropriate medical help.

Stress That Affects Memory ~

How Are You Experiencing Disorientation?

1. We’re going to look at several possible reasons why emotional stress might be affecting your memory. One reason could be that you are disoriented due to a sudden recent change. You might also be picking up on other people’s stress. Another possibility could be that your mind has been exposed to an overwhelming amount of information. It helps to be aware what is involved.

Let this Circle help you gather up any important information involved. Your unconscious mind knows what’s pertinent and what’s not.

You might want to jot down any impressions you notice. However, don’t be surprised if nothing definite comes to you. There may not be any words because the unconscious mind is not linear. 

Just make note of what your experience is for now.

 

What is a Clear Intention That will Help?

2. To help bring your mind into focus, establish a simple and clear intention for this exercise.

“I improve mental acuity and brain function.”

Go ahead and meditate on the center open space of this chart with that intention in mind. Breathe deeply and relax. Don’t try to make anything happen. A relaxed mind will lead you to a more relaxed body!

When the energy of the chart slows down, you’re ready to move onto the next step.

 

What Would You Like to Shine Light On?

3. The pineal gland is an important part of your brain because of its main function of regulating light and darkness through its production and secretion of melatonin. In addition, the pineal contains light-sensitive cells that control the circadian cycle of sleep and wakefulness.
Melatonin also supports healthy memory function and reproductive cycles.

Relax and breathe for a minute or two and let this Chakra Key help you clear toxins from your pineal gland so that your natural rhythms and cycles can come into better balance.

 

How Would You Like to Feel?

4. The hypothalamus is a part of your brain that regulates homeostasis. Through it, you have the ability to maintain inner balance and a calm state of mind. It also regulates a variety of functions including your physical development, digestive health and metabolism.

Allow this Chakra Key to help you clear and balance your hypothalamus.

 

What Would You Like to Remember?

5. The hippocampus is actually two structures located on either side of the temporal lobe that are involved with memory development, verbal, spacial and directional skills.

Repeat what you just did in the previous steps. Relax and breathe while you gaze at this Chakra Key to clear out toxins and bring both areas of your hippocampus into balance.

Once you’ve really relaxed with it, check in with a question:

“Is there something I’ve forgotten that’s important? More than one?”

Make a note of it and continue with your mind exercise.

 

What Would Bring You More Ease?

Emotional Stress and the Third Eye6. There’s another part of your brain function that taps into the wisdom of your Soul. Some call it the Third Eye Chakra. Through it, the pineal, hippocampus and hypothalamus can connect and work together to enhance learning and create coherent thoughts. Intuition and common sense can then blossom and communicate meaningful insights to you.

Keep relaxed and gaze softly at the Circle with each affirmation:

“My common sense and intuition are working together.”

“I receive meaningful insights about my situation.”
“My mind helps me to reduce stress and integrate joy into my life.”

 

What Needs to Get Connected?

7. Keep relaxed and gaze softly at the Circle with each affirmation:

“My mind is connected and balanced to create improved mental acuity and brain function.”

“I improve my comprehension and understanding.”
“I connect with solutions.”

 

What Would Support You?

8. It’s possible that you’re dehydrated or not getting the right nutrition. While you gently focus on this Circle, ask yourself:

“Is there something I could eat or drink that would help me?”
“Is there something I’m eating or drinking too much of?”

 

 Is There Something That You Need To Let Go Of?

9. If there is, let this Circle help you open up and let it go.

Just keep letting go and release all that emotional stress. See yourself relaxing under an afternoon Sun. Take all the time you like. It’s okay to let go and rest.

 

What Would Help Your Emotional Stress?

10. Is there something that you could do to help your mental emotional stress?
Is there something it would be best to stop doing?
Use this Circle to consider actions you could take that would help in this situation. Make sure they would be genuinely helpful to you now.

Is there anything you could do or stop doing that would be genuinely helpful to others?

 

What Is Your heart Saying?

11. It could be that things are just moving too fast and your mind is trying to keep up. Take a moment to slow down and tune into your heart. Ask yourself:

“What is my heart telling me?”
“Am I worried about something (physical, financial, family issue, etc)?”

“Is there anything I can do that could actually help the situation?”
“What have I been doing? Has that helped?”
“What do I feel?”

 

How Will Life Be Better Without This Emotional Stress?

12. Your physical body is the foundation for your vitality and your instinct to take care of yourself. Clearing energy, especially in your lower body, will give you strength and support to make necessary changes. Put both feet on the floor to help you ground. Take whatever time you need.

Once you feel stronger, ask yourself:

“What, if anything, am I forgetting about my physical health?
“Is there something I need to remember?”

There’s always more than one way to do things, what new way comes to mind in this case?

 

What Would Keep You Grounded?

13. A strong connection to the Earth gives you support to make the necessary changes and stay balanced at the same time. Put both feet on the floor to help you ground.
If needed, go back to Step 7 and connect with your other chakras.
Take whatever time you need.  

“What do I need remember?”
“Do I need to change anything?”
“Do I have the connections and resources I need to resolve this stress?”
“What would be involved? Is anything missing?”

 

Ask For Blessings On Your Life Path.

14. Finish by balancing out your Life Path Chakras. They help you stay on your own path and tune into the promptings of your Soul – a very important thing to remember!

“I open up to my potential and stay positive.”

“I stay true to my Souls path.”

You may want to sit with this for quite a while.
Plan to take a walk or relax for a bit out in Nature once you feel ready.
Releasing emotional stress takes time and space!

Navigate Reversals During Retrograde

What To Do About Reversals During Retrograde.

Guidance from Kuan Yin 

Ever since 2009, Kuan Yin has offered her assistance through specially chosen Transformation Games, Mind Exercises and Self-care Formulas to help us navigate whatever changes were required. As a time-honored and respected guide in the Healing Arts, her aim has always been to help us stay calm and navigate the chaotic transition from the old paradigm into the New Paradigm with clear minds and hearts.

Reversals During Retrograde
Now, she is helping us to adjust to the reality of living in the new energy through the I Ching Guidance of Hexagram #46 ADVANCEMENT. Unfortunately, random energy reversals during retrograde are likely to recur frequently throughout most of this first year.

Learn more about how Kuan Yin advises us to navigate in the energy of Air in Difficult Beginnings>


Advanced Chakra Healing and Clearing ~

Recommended Transformation Games to Help you adjust and Keep You Moving with the Flow In the New Paradigm, Rather than Against it.

Recent changes in the flow of the Universe have affected us in so many ways that we do not understand yet. Because the chakras react to and reflect environmental factors, it’s important that we pay attention to how well they are functioning and proactively rebalance them when needed.

Navigate Reversals During Retrograde

The biggest issue during this  period is the tendency for chakras (and other energy systems) to suddenly start running in reverse or shut down completely. This backward movement can cause serious physical problems that come on suddenly.

Add to that the increase in violence, chronic health imbalances caused by Covid 19 and the overwhelmed state of our collective mental/emotional health and you’ve got a serious situation that should not be ignored.

For that reason, Kuan Yin has asked me to bring back a format I used to utilize so that I can post Mind Exercises and Transformation Games that are likely to address conflicts in each of the Primary Chakras. It is my hope that they will help you keep your chakras moving in the right direction, free of conflict and reversals. Here are her suggested intentions:

“I am centered and balanced.”

“I release toxic energy and allow my energy to adapt and flow with the new energy of the New Paradigm.”

 

Lets begin with the Root Chakra and move up:

1st Chakra - Root Chakra Balancing

“Our root chakra is red and governs the physical body, our instincts and the assumptions we have about life. It’s located at the very base of the trunk of your body.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the Root needs are physiological – air, food, water, shelter, warmth, sex, sleep and having adequate methods of communication.

Gaze softly at the Root Chakra Key above and then ask yourself:

“Are my physiological needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Root Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin would like you to let go of an old pattern of emotional pain that has been affecting your Root Chakra for a long time. 

Next up is the Second Chakra (also known as the Spleen Chakra):

2nd Chakra - Spleen Chakra Balancing“The second energy center is referred to here as the spleen chakra because it is deeply connected to our emotions, digestion and immunity. Its color is orange and is located 2-3 inches down from the navel.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the second level needs are safety oriented – protection from the elements, security, order, law, stability and freedom from fear.

Gaze softly at the Second Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my safety and security needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my 2nd Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin wants you to check in with your immune system and detach from harmful energies>

Continue by addressing the Third Chakra needs:

3rd Chakra - Solar Plexus Chakra Balancing“The solar plexus chakra is the center of who we are and who we think we are, so it’s fitting that its color is a bright yellow and is located in the solar plexus.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the third level needs include love and belongingness needs – friendship, intimacy, affection and love from work group, family, friends, and romantic relationships.

Gaze softly at the Third Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my love and belongingness needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Third Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin wants you to examine your intentions and weed out those that are causing you to scatter>

The Heart Center and Basic Balance:

Fourth Chakra - Heart Chakra Balancing“Our heart chakra is the bridge between our bodies and the spiritual world. It is where our thoughts and beliefs about love meet the physical expression of it.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the fourth level needs include esteem needs – achievement, self-love, independence, status, dominance, prestige, self-approval, self-respect and respect from others. 

Gaze softly at the Fourth Chakra Key below for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my compassion and esteem needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Fourth Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin wants you to be able to ground in your truth and your power>

Consider the Fifth Chakra and the Power of Your Word: 

Fifth Chakra - Throat Chakra Balancing“The energy of the throat chakra is about what you put out into the world – having a voice. It’s about speaking your truth and is blue in color, as in ‘true blue’.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the fifth level needs include cognitive needs such as knowledge, meaning, expression, self-mastery and self-awareness.

Gaze softly at the Fifth Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my cognitive needs being met? Am I able to ask for what I need and straightforward in my requests? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Fifth Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin would like you to experience greater self-confidence in how you see yourself and communicate> 

The Sixth Chakra and the Power of Your Perception:

Sixth Chakra - Third Eye Chakra Balancing“The third eye chakra contains the energy of insight and wisdom. Located in the center of the forehead just above the eyebrow, this chakra is associated with the color purple.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the sixth level needs include aesthetic needs – the appreciation of and search for beauty, balance and form, etc. Kuan Yin would add the need for spiritual insight and understanding.

Gaze softly at the Sixth Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my needs for creativity and spiritual understanding being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Sixth Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin wants you to be sure you’re focused on your priorities>

The Seventh Chakra and Self-actualization: 

Seventh Chakra - Crown Chakra Balancing“The crown chakra is our connection to spirit. This is the energy center that connects us with divine inspiration. Its color is white as it contains all things and it can cast a golden ring when in states of ecstasy.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the seventh level needs include self actualization  needs – realizing personal potential, self-fulfillment, seeking personal growth and peak experiences.

Gaze softly at the Seventh Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my self-actualization needs being met? Are my fulfillment needs blocked in any way? Am I taking action and giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Seventh Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin would like you to keep your mind clear even when lies are everywhere>


In conclusion, Kuan Yin recommends that you take the time to understand and adapt to all the changes going on.

Whether you want to prepare for improved health, career, finances or relationships, your mind and the whole experience will be much happier if you have an ongoing practice that will help you adapt and nurture yourself.

Navigate Confusion in June 2021

June 13th – June 28th, 2021 Intuitive Reading from the I Ching or Book of Change: Navigate Confusion and Resistance through MODERATION.

Rheanni Lightwater - Navigate Confusion
Rheanni Lightwater, Reiki Master Teacher & Feng Shui Consultant

In this intuitive reading, Soul Resources offers a variety of SOS formulas and Transformation Games using the Intuitive Learning Circles and the I Ching to help us navigate confusion and get on the path to a better world based on the Common Good. 

The I Ching

I Ching Workbook - R. L. WingThe original intent of the I Ching was based on an Eastern philosophy of observation and marking changes in natural and human events. Through many centuries and contributions from shamans and master teachers, including Lau Tzu and Confucius, the Book of Change was developed into a full philosophy for applying beneficial human conduct to varying circumstances. The Art of Feng Shui is part of that philosophy.

Exploring the Central Energy for the Year

Navigate Confusion with the Tarot

2021 is a number five year (2 + 0 + 2 + 1 = 5) and is represented in the Tarot by Major Arcana card #V the Hierophant and #14 (1 + 4 = 5) Temperance.

The number 5 is about the five senses and our ability as humans to use them to navigate experience. The Hierophant is a Major Archetype about choices, authority and the ethics or morals involved with those choices.

The number 14 represents wholeness, unity, perfect order and permanence – providing a whole foundation. The meanings of the Temperance Card are patience, mental equilibrium and finding the Middle Way through balance.


The Chinese Zodiac

This year’s Chinese Horoscope animal is the Yin Metal Ox, which began on February 12th and will continue January 31st, 2021. The positive qualities of the Ox are generally described as strength, devotion, hard work, honesty and positivity. This Feng Shui Mandala for the Double Green Ox is designed to help us take the best advantage of her hard working energy.

Navigate Confusion with the Double Green Ox

However, on the dark side, Ox also has a tendency to be stubborn, shy, with overly prudent or cautious behavior. She might resist change by blocking things and digging  in her hoofs without budging an inch.

A major consideration of managing Ox energy in 2021 is how to apply your efforts effectively into situations, people and projects that will help you navigate confusion and increase your productivity and momentum.

If you are having trouble harnessing the positive energy of the Double Green OX, we have a Transformation Game for that here.


The I Ching: June 13th – June 28th, 2021 – Navigate Confusion through MODERATION.

The I Ching energy has been traveling in a multiple highway pattern since April 4th and is likely to remain that way throughout most of the month of May.

Whenever that happens, Kuan Yin advises me to “follow the middle road” or the road of MODERATION – the path that is guided from within.

Navigate Confusion through Moderation“In difficult times, 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 extremes or opinionated attitudes and then follow the guidance that comes from within instead. In almost any situation, if you are able to walk the middle road between extremes, there will be improvement in whatever you undertake.

Here are selected excerpts from the text of Hexagram #15 MODERATION, as translated by R.L. Wing:

(MODESTY)

“Nature balances itself with plagues, droughts, and cycles of overabundance, and human nature strives toward MODERATION in its tendency to reduce the excesses of the over powerful and to augment the needs of those who are desperately wanting.

Worldly matters can now be brought to success through MODERATION. Leaders should strive to firmly carry their objectives through to completion, not with a show of extraordinary force but with the continuing sincerity that springs from their true natures… The self-evident, self-actualizing demonstration of purpose is the mark of great leaders acting with MODERATION.

In social relationships, avoid extremes. People who are overly intelligent or overly ignorant tend to extremes in their behavior and attitudes. You should now concentrate on establishing harmonious equilibrium with your fellow man and bring MODERATION and order to social institutions. This not only means avoiding radicalism and ostentatious values, but also tolerating weaknesses and inferior elements. “Everything in moderation” means just that.

…This inner equilibrium aligns you with the tao, thus bringing you into harmony with forces that can work for you.”

Special advice to note from the Bottom Changing Line: “If you can carry out your proposed endeavor quietly, competently, and thoroughly, without obvious announcements of your intentions, you can achieve even significant aims. With a modest and disciplined attitude, you do not create resistance or invite challenge.”  ~ Hexagram #15 MODERATION, The I Ching Workbook by R. L. Wing


Soul Resources To Navigate Confusion: 

Soul Oriented Solutions to Navigate Confusion
SOS Symbol

This leads us to the movement of the Collective Psyche, which is upward this year. Last Year was a Year of going In and when people bucked against their better angels, they went Out, causing unnecessary ill will, suffering and divisiveness towards the collective good.

This year, our better angels are advising us to rise up and above the turmoil and darkness that festers below by following the Middle Road. As always, Kuan Yin offers her help and assistance through a specially chosen collection of Transformation Games, Mind Exercises and Self-care Formulas.

Gaze softly at the SOS symbol and ask for a number between 1 – 15.

Scroll down to that number and check out what that process has to offer you.


Transformation Games and Mind Exercises ~

1. Finding Moderation.

When the I Ching Energy is confusing and chaotic – striking a balance through MODERATION is generally the best plan.

2. Handle Irritations Before They Handle You.

It seems that everywhere and every day, there’s more things to be irritated about. However, are you letting them drain your energy or send your mood downward, into the pits? If so, its time to stop scratching the itch and head in a healthier direction.

3. Clear Harmful Thoughts That Are Limiting Your Freedom

Ant Medicine from Gifts from the Rainforest can help you stop buying into intrusive thoughts or intentions others may have for you and let go of your own prejudices.

4. Clarify Your Intentions to Reduce Confusion.

In our rush to “fix” things, we often create unintended consequences, complications and CONTRADICTIONS. Now is a a good time to slow down, get present and examine your goals more carefully.

5. Understanding What’s Next in the Year of the Ox.

Transform your life by seeing if you currently need some increased self-awareness around an important aspect of flow in your life.


Following the Middle Road Will Help Us With Our Emotional Stress ~

“The time calls for self-discipline. When difficulties arise, do not place the blame upon others. Once you begin to take responsibility for your own destiny you can bring order to your environment.” ~ Sixth Changing Line, MODERATION, The I Ching Workbook by R. L. Wing

If you are struggling with the massive amount of stress and loss going around and through you, Join us! Sign up for our new series – SOS – Navigating Loss and Compassion Fatigue.

Navigate Confusion & Compassion FatigueSOS Self-care Formulas and Mind Exercises can help you navigate confusion and restore yourself:

6. Learn to Change with the Changes. It’s easy to be disappointed about sudden changes in plans. Uncertainty seems to be everywhere. This formula can help you change more gracefully and let go of what needs to be released. 

7. Creating Internal Safety. When our creative energy becomes stagnant or gets caught up in emotional entanglements, our physical, emotional and spiritual health suffers. This simple exercise is designed to help you go within and come up with important resources for staying healthy in your environment.

8. Overwhelm Help. Many of us are completely exhausted by recent events – even just the past few days! If you are experiencing any symptoms like overwhelm, exhaustion or collapse, this is the quickest way back to some balance.


Chakra Healing and Clearing ~

Recommended Transformation Games and Mind Exercises to Keep You Moving with the Flow, Rather than Against it.

Because the chakras react to and reflect other subtle energy systems, an imbalance in one of the seven Primary Chakras is usually an indicator of a deeper imbalance affecting many people. Therefore, we’re using the Primary Reiki Chakra Keys to help you identify what needs correction and bring new meaning to the old axiom: “When I heal myself, I help to heal the world.”

Directions: Gaze at each Circle and ask: “Is this chakra balanced?” If the answer is no, click through to the game or exercise and see if it helps.

9. Heal Karmic Abuse from The Collective.

The healing recommended on this level is associated with the Root Chakra. To establish new grounding in the New Paradigm, we need ways to release harmful patterns and collective karma that perpetuates abuse and prejudice. This Transformation Game will help.

Letting Go and Moving On

Help for Moving On from Deteriorating Situations

Transformation Game - Moving OnMany people are having a difficult time being stable because they are getting pulled out of the present by conditioning and emotional attachments to the past. You can get grounded in the New Paradigm of cooperation and equality by going through Kuan Yin’s I Ching Reading for moving on.

“If you are experiencing a situation where there is:

  • a great deal of incompetence
  • argumentative persons
  • societal discord
  • a break up in friendship or family relations
  • refusal to participate in cooperative ventures or
  • depressed health due to a toxic environment

The situation is definitely in the flow of the I Ching Hexagram #23 – DETERIORATION.

In times such as this, prideful displays of power will absolutely backfire. This is not the time to push your expectations or agendas. Withdraw and consolidate your energy as best as you can. Take care and stay strong within yourself. Do nothing to push your personal agenda regarding this particular situation and withdraw as much investment of your time or money as you reasonably can. Unwillingness to let go will most probably result in loss.

I connect my consciousness with Hope.

The best things to do when dealing with DETERIORATING situations is to take care of yourself very sensibly and to find acceptance of the times within yourself. Be generous and kind to those you care about. Maintain your inner connection to Hope.

Keep your focus on those things that are working. They are the important opportunities that are available to you now.

Keep emotional reactions to a minimum and refrain from jumping to conclusions. Meditate, surrender to the fact that all things must end. Know that eventually there will come a change for the better. 

If you deal with a situation of DETERIORATION with an attitude of ‘I’m going to fix this’ or ‘I need to stop what’s happening,’ you will actually be giving the situation more fuel and prolonging it, rather than letting it die out on its own. When you let go, Nature can take its course. In most cases, the negativity will feed on itself and die out naturally. This reality may be unpleasant however, acceptance is what is called for.” 

Here’s some help through a Transformation Game called “Letting Go and Moving On.”

Gently gaze at these Intuitive Learning Circles one at a time and consider the question or affirmation that goes with each Step. This process helps you to become aware of what’s bothering you, so that you can make a different choice to use your energy more productively and in tune with your Inner Guidance.

 Step 1:

What is a situation around you now that is DETERIORATING? Trust the message that comes through from your deepest, wisest guidance.

If your mind is blocked or blank go here and read about Fixated Thoughts or Shock>

 

 

Step 2:

Enhance your inner guidance by calming your senses and bringing them into balance. Some may be turned up too high and some may be too low. Relax and allow your eyes to rest gently on the Circle below.

Mind Body IntegrationTake some deep breaths and let your shoulders drop. Adjust the volume to your senses. Do that both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body to achieve greater mind body integration.

 

Step 3:

Release your conditioning to personally attach to that situation.

“I uproot the conditioning, beliefs and behaviors that are pulling me into this DETERIORATING situation.”

“I release them to the Light where they can safely be transformed.”

 

Step 4.

Can you  identify the emotion that pulls you towards the DETERIORATING situation?

Once you have identified what you’re feeling, take a moment and just relax into it. Could it be a phobia, an obsession or a compulsion?

“I accept that this emotional state is present and that it must change. All things eventually change.”

If you can, rub your shoulders and neck for a minute or two. The more you relax and accept what you’re feeling, the easier it will release and dissipate.

Step 5:

Bring your awareness now to your body. Go to your solar plexus area and open your Third Chakra, the home to your Essence and “gut instincts.”  

Let go of any toxic energy and bring the chakra into balance.

 

Step 6:

Bring your awareness to your Heart Center. Allow this Reiki Chakra Key to help you open and balance it.

Keep relaxing and breathing into it. Eventually, you will be able to feel life energy radiating out. The light of your Heart Chakra is shining!

 

Step 7.

Gaze softly at this Chart that connects you with the empowerment of your Soul. Imagine that your energy system can adapt to the changes that are needed. Continue to relax and breathe as you use this affirmation:

“When it comes to the situation of _________, I exist and am empowered to manifest my highest good.”

 

Step 8:

Connect with your Soul’s unique vibration and energy. Continue to relax and breathe as you use this affirmation:

“I am resonating with the vibration of my Soul.”

“I strengthen my unique gifts and talents.”

 

Step 9:

Use this Chart to help you detach from negative energies around your situation. These may include energies from other people, even family members.

Like a healing balm, imagine that a loving coat of peace and comfort is pouring down over you.

“I release all attachments and energy signatures that are not from my Soul.” 
“I detach from destructive energies, lies, curses, sabotage and illnesses.”

 

Step 10:

Consciously close down any destructive energy channels that are coming from the DETERIORATING situation.

“I am no longer connected to that DETERIORATING situation.”

 

Step 11.

Now, get fully present. Use this affirmation to help you:

“I live in the present and deal with what is.”

If you’re having trouble getting present, it can help to close your fingers into fists and open them again, several times. If you get overwhelmed or feel a strong emotion come up, go back to Step #2 and repeat the process to relax and dissipate the emotion.

 

Step 12:

Now that you are present, ask your deepest wisest guidance:

“What is an action I can take that will help me to move on?”

Take as much time as you need to reorganize your thoughts and energy around positive action.

 

Step 13:

Consciously re-direct your energy and attention toward a situation you want to encourage instead. Move your attention and energy away from the DETERIORATING situation.

“I turn my energy toward productive activities and plans.”

 

Step 14:

Use this symbol to consciously release any remaining mental, emotional or spiritual baggage that’s interfering with your freedom. 

You can visualize them as dark clouds or entanglements that you surrender to the Light to be transformed. Stay with it until you feel they’re completely 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 happiness and life – not death!

Step 15:

Finish the game by closing off the pathways in your mind that lead back to the DETERIORATING situation.

“I let go and seal off the ways I prolong or maintain suffering for myself or anyone else.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

Congratulations!

Having the faith that you don’t need to be in control of a DETERIORATING situation is a big help in coming to terms with change and moving on in a positive way.

Managing Anxiety Amidst Collective Fear

SOS – Self-care for Managing Anxiety  ~

Rheanni Lightwater - Managing Anxiety
Rheanni Lightwater, Hypnotherapist & Reiki Master Teacher

Managing AnxietyThis formula from Soul Oriented Solutions uses affirmations with the Intuitive Learning Circles to help when you are managing anxiety that may come about because you are:

  • Picking up on anxiety around you
  • Getting anxious about an important decision
  • Being pulled in too many directions
  • Overstimulated or feeling under attack
  • Feeling dizzy, scattered or overwhelmed
  • Unable to follow through due to anxiety.

If any of those experiences sound like you and you’re open to trying something new to calm your mind, body and spirit, Welcome!

Managing Anxiety Amidst Collective Fear ~

Whenever a person is feeling anxiety, it’s usually related to whatever level of uncertainty they are experiencing. In normal times, managing anxiety has been a personal matter and has to do with being okay with not knowing what’s going to happen.

However, due to the pandemic and other social, environmental challenges, we are all experiencing existential levels of disorientation and uncertainty – even threats – which in turn increases our collective levels of anxiety. None of us knows what’s going to happen next! Whether it be how to interact with our social networks, following new procedures or handling economic stress, being able to focus our attention on something positive may simply seem out of the question.

Managing AnxietyThese feelings can come on suddenly and be extremely visceral! For example, just today, I was sitting down to make a plan and my partner came home suddenly very agitated about a situation at work. As he was talking, my thoughts started to spin, which, in turn, elevated the emotions I was feeling. Then, my breathing got shallow and my heart began to race.

In a matter of moments, I had gone from neutral to being scattered in a tempest of collective emotions: fear, distress, anxiety… and who knows what else!

Fortunately, because I’ve always been more sensitive to these sorts of experiences, I knew to quickly release my agreement to buy into it. Then, when I had more time, I went through this centering exercise to pull myself out from the malaise and center myself in the present again.

Please note: Managing Anxiety Amidst Collective Fear is not intended to take the place of appropriate medical or psychotherapeutic care. If you are having serious symptoms contact your healthcare provider immediately.

If you would like to try the process out for yourself, set aside about twenty to thirty 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 Intuitive Learning Circles can help you restore balance when you’re managing anxiety:

Gaze softly at the Circle for a minute or so while you contemplate the positive affirmations that go with it:

managing anxiety“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 genuinely beneficial.”

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.


Mind Body Integration

Mind Body Integration - Self-care for loss

The brain and body communicate through different channels when a part of you is crossed over the center of your body. 

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!


Managing Anxiety

The goal of this formula is to help you slow down and pull your thoughts together so that you can get your energy back into balance quickly and easily.

Step One: Clarity

Breathe in and exhale. Gently gaze at the Circle and affirm to yourself:

“It’s beneficial for me to be aware of energies that are not mine and expel them.”

“I organize my body and mind to have healthy boundaries
and strong protection.”

“Taking good care of myself is important.”

 

Step Two – Balance

The Balance Chakra is located on your Sacrum, better known as your Tail Bone. When this energy center is in balance, it’s much easier to connect with stability and the natural flow of life or “the Tao,” as it’s called in the Ching.

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.

Relax and settle into your chair. Pay special attention to your tailbone while you let it relax and unwind.

 

Step Three – Protection

Continue to breathe and put yourself in a mental landscape that’s very safe, calm and peaceful.
You are completely protected here.

Let your mind imagine a soft breeze gently blowing busy or anxious thoughts away like leaves, swirling up and disappearing into the Sun.

 

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 are in the present. Move if you need to. Let your shoulders drop.

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

A nice side benefit to balancing your senses in this way is noticing that you feel more balanced and your emotions are calming down. Practice both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body.

“I enjoy this calm sensation and remember it.”

 

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. If you like, you can imagine a ball of string slowly unwinding.

 

Step Six – Trust

Managing Anxiety in your gutLet 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.

Get yourself centered and balanced.

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

 

Step Seven – Release

Help your body to release physical and emotional toxins by relaxing with this Chakra Key that improves the function of your kidneys. Use this positive affirmation:

“Letting go is a relief.”

 

Step Eight – Steadfast

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

“I am okay.”

 

Step Nine – Breath

Let this Circle help you open up your breath now.
Your lungs work together with your heart to keep oxygen flowing through you.

“I’m breathing in the breath of life and exhaling _____________.”

 

Step Ten – Equilibrium

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

“I breathe deeply into my belly and resonate with the breath of life.”

 

Step Eleven – 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 Twelve – Integration

Hara lines are like tiny webs of light that connect the chakras. Sometimes they are broken due to trauma, toxicity or sudden changes in the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight).

“The hará lines between my chakras are healed and connected, like a golden web of light.”

“I organize my consciousness around healthy boundaries and strong protection from my Soul.”

 

Step Thirteen – Synchronize with Your Heart Center

Gaze softly at the Key and allow your heart center to open, relax and expand. You can even imagine a warm energy radiating out of the center of your chest and as that light moves out, you find that all kinds of anxiety, sorrow and heaviness is easily released to the Sun. Letting go – recycling into new life and inspiration.

“My heart chakra is letting go of harmful patterns so that it can synchronize with health, happiness and positive life flow.”

 

Step Fourteen – Emotional Freedom

Dissolve your connection to the mental and emotional unhappiness that’s behind our collective anxiety. Use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to clear the patterns from your mental continuum. Visualize them like dark clouds dissolving and dissipating into pure Sunlight. 

“I dissolve destructive patterns that interfere with my health and happiness. I release them to the Light to be purified.”

Please note: Never send destructive energies into the Earth, she already has too much to handle now. Use the Earth for planting seeds of happiness and life – not death!

 

Step Fifteen – Closure

Close the pathways or doors in your mind that lead back to collective anxiety and fear.

If those pathways remain open, all kinds of trouble (karma, issues, illness or confusion) can continue to pass back and forth through the opening without your awareness. This can manifest in a sudden return in mental confusion, anxiety or chronic states of overwhelm.

“I choose to take good care of myself mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.”

“All pathways that lead back to suffering are sealed and healed.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

 

Step Sixteen – Embrace Protection On Your New Path

Allow this Soul Prayer Chart to help you close down any harmful energy channels from the old paradigm and tap into the generative energy flow of the New Paradigm instead.

“I follow the direction of Divine Protection.”

“My mind is open and clear to receive generative life force.”

Divine Protection for Managing Anxiety

 

Step Seventeen – Ground and Center in the Present

In order to actualize the full benefits of this process, put both feet on the ground and let this Circle help you get grounded in a new paradigm of equality, cooperation and sustainable prosperity. 

 

Congratulations! Going through this formula has set you up to be more resilient and aligned to face the challenges of our times successfully!

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 new solutions that come to mind.

Take Good Care of Yourself Through Moderation

In these stressful times, we’re all learning what we need to do to take good care of ourselves. The path of MODERATION is often the key.

Rheanni Lightwater
Rheanni Lightwater Reiki Master Teacher Medical Intuitive

There is no shortage of information and advice out there about what we should and should not do to take care of ourselves. Early on in my experience as a medical intuitive, I discovered that there is no “one way” to protect ourselves or heal that works for everyone. We are all unique individuals with our own strengths, weaknesses and preferences – our own karma, if you will.

I also learned that what works today may not work tomorrow. That has to do with circumstances; something may have suddenly changed that has to be dealt with. A shock may cause you to loose your footing and get off balance. Or, there may be some other spiritual or emotional blockage that needs to be released before a clear solution can appear. There could be underlying toxins in the system, the timing may not be right or the body could be so challenged by something like a virus that it’s unable to communicate properly.

So, given all the variables present in this extremely difficult time, how can you take good care of yourself?

A New Perspective from an Old Friend

Transformation Games - Take Good Care of YourselfKuan Yin is a time honored and respected spiritual guide in the healing arts. She has been helping us to transition from the old paradigm based on greed and fear to a new paradigm of equitable co-operation and sustainable prosperity for the Common Good. Her advice on how to take good care of yourself springs from the I Ching, an ancient book of change and 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 get present and see things through a new perspective – one that comes from your innermost knowing. Simply relax and gaze at the Intuitive Learning Circles while contemplating Kuan Yins words. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek. Here’s an example:

“I connect with my five senses to perceive what I need now to be healthy.”

“I use them to become aware of confusion, lies, conflicts and self sabotage.”

“I use them to discern the difference between healthy life force and an invading energy.”

“I gain clear awareness of beneficial resources, solutions, opportunities and _________.”

 

Note: As you gaze at a Circle, it may move around, change color or spin. The lines may disappear and reappear again. That’s okay. It just means that it’s working with the positive affirmations and your subconscious mind to help you make needed changes. You’ll know the adjustment has been made when the energy subsides. Take all the time that you need.

 

Excellent! Now, let this Circle help you balance all of your senses so that you are listening to your own body, instead of all that discordant noise from the outside world! The volume may be turned up too high, or it could be too low.

Take several breaths and relax. Breathing into your belly and exhaling long and slow. This is helpful to every part of your nervous system.

“I listen to my heart. I notice my breath. I move my body around and stretch.”

“I activate my intuition and use it in balance with other aspects of learning, such as common sense, logic, observation and instinct.”


Mind Body Integration

Get out a pen and some paper. You may want to journal what comes up.

Now you’re ready to start playing the game!

 


Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for:

Hexagram # 15 – Moderation – How to Take Good Care of Yourself in the New Paradigm

Transformation Game - Take Good Care of Yourself

“In difficult times, 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 MODERATION as the best way to make progress by disengaging from harmful extremes and following the truth and guidance that comes from within. In almost any situation, if you’re able to walk a moderate and middle road, there will be improvement in whatever you undertake.

Finding Moderation and Following that Path ~

As a general rule, MODERATION is a sensible flow to follow whenever there’s so much chaos and confusion that it’s hard to tell what’s going on. In the midst of chaos, unpreferred karma (cause and effect) can be easily triggered. For many people, soul contracts have been completed and need to be released to prevent unnecessary health problems. Generally, people are probably either:

  1. Being pulled into a negative spiral of mental, emotional, physical or spiritual health.
  2. Stuck in frustration, rebellion or an obstinate refusal to change. 
  3. Getting scattered or revisiting regressive patterns from the past, or
  4. Pulling themselves together into a centered position of empowered authority.

As you softly gaze at this Circle that accesses karmic seeds, see if you’re currently experiencing one of these situations. Ask yourself:

“Am I generally experiencing situation #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.

Whatever it is, you can take good care of yourself by letting go of any karmic agreement that is complete – over and done with or that’s causing you harm in any way. This game will help you do that. 


Let Go So You Can Bring In New Ways to Take Good Care of Yourself.

Use this Soul Contract Circle to help you identify and release the agreements. Imagine that each agreement is like a lock attached to every vertebrae of your spine. To let go, see if you can access the original Soul Contract that started the whole pattern for you. Start at the bottom of the line and and the bottom of your spine at the tailbone to find the contract that has the strongest emotional charge. Release it first. You can imagine it burning up or breaking apart. 

Then, move up your spine – unlocking any harmful agreements as you go all the way to the top of your neck. Here are some examples:

“I unlock all agreements that sacrifice my health or place me in harms way.”

“I let go of any lies, poor guidance or assumptions that block my ability to heal.”

“I discontinue activities or beliefs that put me at risk.”

“I release pathways, false concepts and patterns of behavior that lead to conflict, confusion, hardship, over-indulgence or ________, etc.”

 

Reclaim Your Power:

Take all the time you need to really relax into this chart with these positive affirmations:

“I decide to gently integrate healthier patterns that upgrade my happiness and well-being, in accordance with my highest good.”

“I exist and am empowered to take good care of myself.”

“I nourish myself with healthy habits.”

 

Clear Out the Clutter:

As you look at this Reiki Key, clear your mind of  hurtful entanglements, confusion or false guidance. By letting go of all the cobwebs, you free up a lot of energy that’s better spent on your good health and vitality.

“I clear my mind and calm down.”


Now it’s time to assess what’s going on for you. What is your main concern at this time? Is anything stressing you out? What do you need to pay attention to? Is this is a good opportunity to clear your mind of any outdated intentions or thoughts that have been interfering with your health or happiness?

 

Make Commitments to Your Good Health and Well-being:

Because of the chaos involved, there aren’t many guarantees out there. Making any kind of reliable prediction is next to impossible. You’re going to need all the presence and energy you have to help you during times such as these. Gently look at the next Circle while you check into these positive affirmations and see what applies in your case:

“My Soul is in charge.”


“My new agreement is to stay present in my body and follow my inner guidance – calmly and honestly.”

“I am flexible and able to adapt to what’s needed.”

“I notice what’s happening with my physical, mental and spiritual health. I ask for and receive reliable help when I need it.”

“I make wise choices about my health and well-being.”

“I make sure I’m heading in the right direction.”

“I slow down and ______.  I let go of ______. I prepare for ______.

I take care of ______.   I am open to ______.”

 

Strengthen Your Energy Field:

“I decide to build an attraction field for _________, _________, _______.” Suggestions: excellent health, healthy boundaries, nourishment, equality, good company, cooperation, sustainable prosperity, etc.

 

Focus On Your Priorities:

Use this Circle to help you slow down and shift your focus to what really matters.

“I make a choice to focus my attention on hope, health, sustainable prosperity and ______________.”

 

Evaluate Your Energy:

To successfully accomplish your priorities, it’s essential to assess the energy of your life force or chi’ and how you’re using it. The next few Circles will help you monitor how that’s going. Check in with this Circle to start.

“Am I interacting with auspicious and generative life energies?”
“Am I correctly positioned in my Solar Plexus to receive them properly?”
“Is my Power Animal present and working with me to manifest my intention?”

If not, what would help?

“I strengthen my ability to tap into the auspicious life energies available to me and position myself correctly to receive them.”

 

Protection and Self-care:

It’s just as important to be aware of how well you’re protecting yourself.

“Am I protecting myself properly?”
“Am I inadvertently tapping into harmful or inauspicious energies?”
“Is my Power Animal present and working with me for protection?”

“I decide to disconnect from harmful energies and stop tapping into them.
I am centered correctly to receive the protection of my Soul.”

 

Develop Healthy Reciprocity:

What you put out comes back to you, so it’s important to put out a clear and direct message with your intentions. Too many contradictory or poorly thought out intentions can create confusion, conflict and even chaos! Take time to organize your energy in alignment with Cause and Effect to help you manifest clear intentions.

“I put out __________ in alignment with my highest good and __________ is returned to me.”

 Once you feel in the flow, ask yourself: “Am I working in alignment with Cause and Effect? Am I remembering to include play and to have fun? Are there any habits or behaviors that would be helpful for me to change? “

 

Physical Nourishment:

Now let’s turn to the physical aspect of taking care of yourself. Consider how well you’re nourishing yourself and make notes so that you’ll remember.

“Are there any foods, especially herbs, teas, vegetables or fruits that would benefit me? Am I getting enough fresh water? Is there anything to stay away from?

Is there anything I’m consuming that’s causing a problem?”

“Am I approaching my physical challenges correctly? If not, can I tell what’s needed?”

 

Breathing and Oxygen:

Relax for a few minutes to consciously breathe and relax. Imagine what kind of exercise you could do that would be most helpful today.

“Am I getting enough oxygen through breathing, fresh air and exercise?”

“Is there anything I need to let go of?”

Emotional Calm

“Am I functioning with too much tension? Am I having a lot of emotional reactions? If so, what might help me?”

 

Sunlight:

Your body needs sunlight to stimulate good health and keep your immune system strong.

“Am I getting enough Vitamin D-3?”
“Am I getting enough sunlight to make it?”
“Am I getting the right nutrition to assimilate it properly?”

“If not, what would help me with this?”

 

Evaluate Your Current Actions or Intentions:

“Are there any activities I’m planning that would be unwise?”

“Are there any external conditions I need to be aware of?”

If so, can I tell what they are? What do I need to be cautious about? How can I follow a more MODERATE and beneficial path?”

 

Check the Vibration of Your Life Force:

The First Chakra located at the base of your pelvis (sometimes called the Root or Sacral chakra) governs the general level of your vitality. Do you sense any unusual sluggishness, sensations or low vibrations? This is a good opportunity to clear your foundation of any outdated intentions or energies that interfere with your health or happiness. 

As you look at this Reiki Key, visualize any heaviness, illness or toxic energy moving out of your root and expelling to the Light.

“What can I do to help raise my vibration? What might me get grounded?”

 

Let Go of Destructive Patterns:

Now it’s time to dissolve mental and emotional patterns that pull you off track. Use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to identify and let go of self-sabotage or any societal or familial pattern that still affects your health in a negative way. See them disappear as you send them to the Sun:

“I dissolve destructive energy and any connection I have ever had to it.”

“I dissolve ___________________.”

Please note: Never send destructive energies into the Earth, she already has too much to handle now. Use the Earth for planting seeds of happiness and life – not death!

Close the Pathways to Suffering:

Once the patterns are cleared, close the door to pathways that lead to  extremes, unnecessary suffering or danger.

“I decide to close the door on harmful pathways. I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

 

Ground:

In order to actualize the benefits of this game, it’s important to get grounded. Put both feet on the ground and let this Circle help you get grounded in a new paradigm of equality, cooperation and sustainable prosperity.

“I finish by being fully grounded in the New Paradigm.”

 

Finish with Positive Energy in the New Paradigm:

At this point, you’re probably feeling much calmer and more in balance. Finish with this affirmation:

“My mind is open and ready to receive generative life force.”

Congratulations!

Take Good Care of Yourself

“Learning how to take good care of yourself at this time is an opportunity to go within and expel contradictory patterns of fear, conflict and apathy. May we all arise from those patterns, much as a beautiful lotus arises from the muck and mire at the bottom of a pond.” ~ Kuan Yin

Now is a good time to move around or take a nice walk if you can. Enjoy being out in the Sun and fresh air.

Note: Go through this game as often as you need to, especially if you’re experiencing health challenges.

Learning How to Change

Are You Changing with the Changes?

If you’re like most of us, you’re overwhelmed by the speed and amount of  confusing changes taking place. One day, it feels like life is moving forward and then, in a flash, conditions are completely changed! What do we need to learn to know how to change with all these changes?

Learning How To ChangeWhether you’re feeling anxious about the increase in violence and erratic behavior, health, finances, the environment, relationships or your work situation – the underlying fabric of society is undergoing radical transition and the old lines of communication are down. The false security of the “good old days” is gone and new ways to handle just about everything need to take form. It’s no wonder that so many of us are feeling more emotional than usual. Under these conditions, it’s easy to get pulled this way and that. Our bodies are worn out and our minds are torn in a hundred directions!   

The 64 Hexagrams in the I Ching or Book of Change have much to teach us about the importance of being flexible and knowing how to change. 

For example, Hexagram #41 DECLINE says: “The pendulum swings once again, this time moving into a general DECLINE. Although the DECLINE points to the beginning of a later flowering, the way you handle this current decrease in resources is of great importance. This decrease is in accordance with the forces in the cosmos and therefore perfectly natural and completely unavoidable. You will ultimately benefit, however, from any sacrifices you must now make.

In Hexagram #29 DANGER, the text says, “Acting with integrity and confidence is the key to surmounting the DANGER… In personal relationships, do not allow passions to lead you into peril. If the difficulties cannot be resolved without sacrificing your principles, the relationship may be irresolute.”

In Hexagram #51 SHOCKING, the ancient text states: “If you can learn to react with virtuous accord and maintain your composure, success is truly yours.” ~ The I Ching Workbook, by R.L. Wing

Transformation Game: Learning How To Change in a Changing World.

You can discover how to change more gracefully while keeping your integrity by going through this Transformation Game. When you slow down and take the time to go within, you gain a deeper understanding of what you’re really struggling with. Not only that, you can find the motivation to change how you’re responding in a more effective way!

Directions: Simply gaze at the Circle while contemplating the positive affirmations. Breathe deeply and allow yourself to relax as much as possible.

“I reclaim and balance my rational senses.”

“I focus them to be present and keep tuning into my body to monitor what I’m needing.”

“I use them to notice my environment so I can respond appropriately.”

“I focus on actions that benefit my health, happiness and _________.”

 

You might 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 our subtle energy fields to react in unusual ways.

This Correction Key can help you correct any rough glitches or reversals that you may be experiencing.
Relax with it for a few minutes until things smooth out and you feel more centered.

 


An important note about Mind Body Integration ~ 

Retrain Your Mind for Mind Body IntegrationThe brain and body communicate through different channels when a part of you is crossed over the center of your body. As you work with the Circles, cross and uncross a hand or foot over the midline of your body. Use a soft focus and breathe patiently. This will help you access more information from your unconscious mind. Let any negative self-talk go by breathing through it.

Feel free to move at anytime in any way to help you let go!


Once you feel ready, see if you can slow down and let yourself focus on your  priorities. Ask for true spiritual guidance that comes from within.

“I slow down and breathe while I clear my mind. I turn my attention to what matters most.”

Gently, notice the specific aspects of your life that are changing rapidly and need some extra help.
Next, notice if you have aspects that feel stuck, closed off or even going in reverse.
How would you describe these things?
You might want to get out a pen and paper to make note of some of the impressions you get.

Contemplate the medicine from Butterfly for a moment or two:

“I ask my Inner Wisdom for assistance about what needs to change and how to do it in the most positive way.”

What needs to happen?

 

Bring your attention to the center of your chest. Let your heart be involved in this conversation. Are you willing to listen?

 

Empower your ability to choose in this situation.

“I exist and what I do matters.”
“I can respond to this situation in a productive and helpful way.”

“I bring myself into alignment with my highest good.”

 

Now you’re ready to go through the rest of the game in the same way by asking yourself questions while you gaze softly at each accompanying Circle. Doing so will help you assess where you’re at. Take your time, the answers might not come right away. The Circles are helping your mind to clear away mental and emotional resistance to change.

“In this particular situation, how am I dealing with change?

Is that working for me? Is there something I need to change about how I’m dealing with the situation? Am I doing the best I can?” 

Animal Totems for Inner Guidance - Raven

Am I stuck on something? Shut down? Unwilling? Is it possible that I’m being too hard on myself? What is the concern?”

 

If you’re stuck, you might be able to deal with it fairly easily by using Condor Medicine to clear conflict, resistance and fixated thinking.  

Imagine that you can use the Circle like a bull’s eye to send healing energy to any conflicts or fixations you may be experiencing. Let go by imagining that the lines are going all limp and loose like spaghetti noodles. Or, you can imagine an iceberg melting away under the Sun.

Either way, be gentle with yourself. If you’re judging yourself too harshly, use the Circle to help you loosen up those rigid thoughts. If you’re shut down, use the Circle to bring your energy back to life! If you need to open up to creativity or dissolve toxic emotions, see yourself doing that.
Move around and stretch in any way that you like.

 

Continue with your investigation about how to change…

“Am I holding onto negative experiences from the past?”

You can usually tell if you’re internalizing something because you’ll start to feel physical, mental, emotional or even spiritual irritation. If that’s happening, see if you can stop taking it personally and let it go.
“I surrender these old experiences to the Light and turn to more positive ways of dealing with change.”

 

There is no doubt that what we’re going through is hard. The best thing we can do in difficult situations is to think about what we can learn from them.
“The most important take away for me in this situation is ________.”
“I am learning ____________.”
Be sure to write this down.

For a much deeper integration, trace around the Circle clockwise with your eyes, while you consider your take away thought.

Then, do the same as you trace your eyes around the square in the same direction, both crossed and uncrossed.

How To Change our Experiences – Choose New Ingredients

If we keep choosing ingredients from the past, the soup we call our lives will keep repeating itself over and over.  For example, if we were born into a family that keeps choosing shame or blame, we will be liable to keep choosing those ingredients ourselves until we can become conscious of what we’re doing. If we want to change the flavor of our soup, it will help to change the ingredients we’re using!

By choosing ingredients such as self-worth, self-love or self-confidence we can learn how to change and create a better future.

The Essential Human*Note: if you have an updated copy of The Essential Human, you might want to go through Future Pacing (on page 140). Choose from the archetypes #1 – 42 to help you choose beneficial “ingredients” for creating your life. Ask yourself:
“What ingredients am I choosing? Are there some ingredients that I would like to change?”

“I release harmful ingredients and access beneficial ingredients instead.”

 

One important new ingredient is the generative flow of chi’ that’s available to help us move with the quicker, lighter Element of Air. Use this symbol to help you access it.

“I close down all harmful energy channels.”
“My mind is open and clear to receive generative life force.” 

 

New Agreements

Next, imagine that you can release any old agreements, assumptions or obligations that are keeping you stuck. Visualize them like contracts, burning up into nothingness with a violet flame. Here are some suggestions:

“I let go of outdated agreements that keep me stuck in old patterns or to take on someone else’s issues or emotions as my own.”

“I let go of being controlled by emotions or dumped on by anyone or anything.”

“I let go of the need to hold onto anyone or anything that is no longer helpful in this situation.”

“I let go of my resistance to ________. I detach from ________. I remove myself from ________.” Etc.

“I maintain my inner balance and stability.”

 

New Decisions

Make some new decisions that support how to change more appropriately. Here are some suggestions:

“I decide to see this situation in a positive light.” or…
I am capable and my Spirit helps me to handle change…
I am free to change in accordance with my highest good…
I allow other people the space to handle their own issues…”, etc.

“I decide to __________ and _______________,”

 

Renewed Presence

Connect with the Third Chakra at your Solar Plexus and let it open up. Relax and let the tightness go. Deep breathing and presence are your best friends in times of accelerated change! Move around or stretch again if you like.

 

Courage and Confidence

Keep breathing and give yourself a good dose of courage with the help of Jaguar Medicine:

“I surround myself with courage, confidence and strength.”

 

Seed Medicine can help you find any karmic seeds you may be holding that are causing you harm. They might not even be yours! It’s time to set things right. Send them to the Light so they can return to wherever they belong.

Reclaim whatever is yours – your ideas, your power, your own beneficial seeds of karma. Bring them home and nurture them gently.

 

Now it’s time to dissolve your connection to any underlying abuse, confusion or conflict. Use this symbol for Dissolving Destructive Blueprints and allow the Light to dissolve and lift them off of you.

“I let go of the mental, emotional and spiritual connections I still have to harmful patterns.”

Take your time and visualize them disappearing like dark clouds into the Light!

Please note: Never send destructive energies into the Earth, she already has too much to handle now. Use the Earth for planting seeds of happiness and life – not unhappiness and death!

 

Considering what you’ve learned from this situation, you may have made some decisions that you want to close the door on. Use this Circle to seal and heal all leaks, holes or pathways that lead to back to any resistance or unnecessary suffering:

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

Imagine that your mind is like a computer where you can close all the tabs and windows that have been open for far too long!

 

Are you grounded in the New Paradigm of cooperation and sustainable prosperity? If not, put your feet flat on the ground and let your energy organize around it now.

Congratulations!

It’s rarely easy to make changes of this magnitude, but once you know how to change with the changes rather than fighting against them, your situation is bound to improve! The I Ching leaves you with this thought:

“Remove discordant elements as they appear, throw out outmoded or stifling policies when they once again create problems, and establish far-reaching clarity about the future whenever the opportunity presents itself.” ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing
