Finding Moderation In the New Paradigm

Do You Feel Overwhelmed About What’s Next? Finding Moderation is the Key to Staying On Your Path.

Rheanni Lightwater

Transformation Games - Finding ModerationKuan Yin has been helping us to transition from the old economic paradigm based on greed and fear to a new paradigm of equality, co-operation and sustainable prosperity. Her advice about finding moderation springs from the I Ching, an ancient book of divination that follows the flow of the cosmos. Because of that, her insight comes from a different perspective than ours.

Kuan Yin’s Readings and Transformation Games can help you to identify problems, change your focus to positive solutions, ground yourself and get in the present. Simply relax and gaze at the Circles while contemplating Kuan Yins words. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek.


Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for: Hexagram # 15 – Finding Moderation

Todays Intuitive Reading - Finding Moderation

“In times of difficulty and danger, it’s usually best to move with the flow of MODERATION, Hexagram #15, where ‘The predominant forces … are in the process of balancing extremes and harmonizing interests.’ ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

The ancient Chinese text describes finding MODERATION as the best way to make progress amidst chaos. The suggestion is to disengage from 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.

Finding Moderation and Following that Path ~

As a general rule, MODERATION is the most sensible flow to follow, especially in the midst of a transition this significant. Unpreferred karma (cause and effect) is just waiting to be triggered and must be dealt with in one way or the other. For most people, one of these scenarios is probably happening:

  1. Falling into a downward spiral of mental, emotional, physical and/or spiritual health.
  2. Experiencing a lot of rebellion and refusal to change
  3. Getting pulled backwards into regressive and harmful patterns.
  4. Pulling oneself together into a centered position of empowered authority.

Initial Evaluation: As you softly gaze at this Circle that accesses karmic seeds, see if you’re currently experiencing one or more 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.

Whichever one it is, you can make your life easier by letting go of old agreements or karma that’s over and done with.

To Each Their Own

It’s also especially important, at this time, to make sure you aren’t taking on anyone else’s karma. In times of increased violence and unrest, it’s common for people who want to avoid responsibility to systemically “scapegoat”  by dumping their problems and the karma associated with it onto others. Emotionally, this happens through shame, blame, intimidation and playing the pity card. Spiritually, it happens through apathy, indifference or complicity towards degenerate morality. Physically and mentally, it happens by taking part in harmful decisions and actions and then denying responsibility for their part in them.

Most people who take karma on for others are either:

  • feeling guilty and stuck because they are part of a situation, but are taking on more than their part of the responsibility
  • unconsciously organizing their life around the problem
  • compulsively fueling it with their energy and attention, or
  • internalizing it (taking it personally).

When we buy into these behaviors, we are inadvertently preventing karma from being properly delivered to its rightful recipients.

To help you avoid this trap and stay on the middle road, use this symbol with the affirmations to set things right:

“I let go of my attachment to harmful energy,  either on an individual or a collective level. I let go to maintain an effective level of protection.”

I create resiliency and autonomy.”

Feel free to move at any time in any way to help you embody your experience!


Let Go of Harmful Karmic Agreements So You Can Be Present and Regain Balance.

Use this Soul Contract Circle to help you identify and release the agreements. Simply gaze softly at the Circle while you use the affirmations. 

“I let go of any karmic agreement that is complete – over and done with or that is causing me harm in any way.”

“I let go of harmful agreements associated with the old paradigm.” (extremes, greed, intolerance, co-dependence, pressure, dishonesty, people pleasing, etc.)

I decide to slow down to prepare for ________ and take care of ________.”

This is a good opportunity to unlock yourself from any outdated intentions or plans that are blocking your ability to ADAPT to the New Paradigm. Check agreements and intentions with family, friends or business relationships. Include organizations you’ve been involved with – religious institutions, political agendas, completed projects, places you’ve lived, modes of transportation, communication issues, ways of doing business, etc.

“I disengage from out-dated or harmful intentions from the old paradigm.”

Unearth Old Mental and Emotional Garbage.

Use this chart to uproot unconscious cultural conditioning that keeps you stuck in the regressive attitudes and expectations of the old paradigm. Imagine you can free up and uproot your energy from wherever it may have gotten planted. 


 

Make A New Decision.

It’s time to get out of jail. Decide to create a sustainable future by finding moderation for yourself and getting back into balance with Nature. 

“I am guided by the light of Divine Source within.” 

“I make choices that align me with my Soul’s path and purpose.”

What other decisions would help?


Recalibrate Your Energy.

Devote your energy to living in alignment with your true Nature and the World.

“I exist and reclaim my connection with Spirit through my heart.”

“I relax and allow my energy to recalibrate. I actualize my highest good.”


Invoke Protection and Clarity of Mind:

“I close down all invasive energy channels from the past, present or future.”

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


Refocus on Your Priorities.

Visualize what’s truly important to you in the center open space of this Circle.

“I direct my life force towards truly beneficial activities and situations.”

Be sure to include fun, joy and restful relaxation!


Support Yourself with the Appropriate Nourishment.

“I seek out healthy nourishment. I nurture my body, mind and spirit in alignment with my true nature.”

Are there any herbs, teas, vegetables or fruits that would be especially helpful to you now?


Close the Door on Unnecessary Suffering.

Finish this part of the game by closing the door on harmful activities, agendas and pathways that lead back to the old paradigm. Take all the time you need. There are probably a lot of them.

“All doors and pathways are sealed and healed.”

“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

Welcome to the Middle Road! You probably feel much more balance. Go back to the Initial Evaluation for the game and check to see if anything has been cleared.

There are several other decisions that could really improve how you’re dealing with your situation. If you feel incomplete, you can continue with a few extremes that might be making it hard for you to find and stay on the road to MODERATION:

Extreme #1: The 24/7 workaholic syndrome.

Here is the prime example, ‘Being busy = being important and having purpose.’ You might want to let go of that, because this is a terrible time to base your self-worth on external expectations.

“My purpose comes from my Soul. I let go of unrealistic expectations.”

“I understand that my job is there to support me, not the other way around. I am worth and my well-being is part of the exchange.”

 

Extreme #2: The ‘there are no limits’ syndrome.

For example: The Sun is good, however too much Sun causes cancer. Butter is good, yet too much butter causes weight gain, etc. Another social meme that explains the mindset is: ‘The sky is the limit. I want it all now, so I should be able to have it all now!’ 

“I send a laser beam to break up the group attitude of perfectionism, entitlement and impatience. I dissolve self-destructive behavior.”

“I decide that healthy, MODERATE limits are enhancing my creativity.”

“I empower satisfaction, appreciation and tolerance. I patiently follow my inner guidance.”

 

 

Extreme #3: The ‘I’m not doing enough/doing too much” dichotomy.

Finding MODERATION means doing just the right amount. Think Goldilocks -not too much and not too little… just right. If things seem too slow for you, suddenly heading off into fifteen different directions will probably backfire on you badly.  That’s because panic, overwhelm and poor planning usually leads to poor results at best, and chaos at worst. If you’re going too fast, stop and slow things down. Thoughtful consideration about what you really need is what’s most important now.

“What do I really need right now? What will help me do that?”

 

Now it’s time to clean up mental and emotional patterns that are related to these patterns and have been pulling you off track. Use this symbol for destructive blueprints to identify and dissolve self-delusion or any societal or familial patterns that still affect you in a negative way. See them disappear as you send them to the Sun:

“I dissolve the destructive energy of these mindsets and any connection I have ever had to them.”

“I dissolve ___________________.”

A lot of those “extremes” may still be attached to hidden pockets in your magnetic field. Expel them with this chart and mend any damage that may have occurred.

This is a good time to check for and release entanglements.

 

Once your field is repaired, close the door to pathways that lead to extremes and danger.

“All harmful pathways are sealed and healed.

I am finding MODERATION in accordance with my highest good.”

 


For many people, finding MODERATION signifies an opportunity to go within and expel deep patterns of fanaticism within their psyche so that they can evolve and arise from that pattern, much as a beautiful lotus arises from the muck and mire at the bottom of a pond.”

Congratulations!

Now that you’ve made choices about finding moderation you can bring order and new happiness into your environment!”

Simply relax and gaze at the Circles while contemplating Kuan Yins words. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek.


Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for: Hexagram # 29 – Learning from Danger

Learning from Danger

“There are times when none of our efforts to solve a problem have been effective and the way out of DANGER is blocked. Often, all that you may do is wait. Yet, even when that is the case, there are still things that you can do to become more aware of yourself by learning from DANGER

‘Frequent encounters with DANGER are a part of life. Beyond making you inwardly strong, familiarity with DANGER, like the near brush of death, can instill in you a profound awareness of the life force and the mysterious nature of the cosmos. Such heightened awareness can bring new meaning, determination and richness into your life.’ ~The I Ching Workbook, R.L Wing

Generally, the text from Hexagram #29 talks about DANGER that exists in your immediate environment. Responding correctly is really about Right Action – knowing when and how to take action with clarity of mind. Sometimes it’s best to take minimal action or do nothing at all. Awareness and keeping your wits about you are really the keys.”

Learning from Danger – A Transformation Game

This Game uses the Intuitive Learning Circles to help you gain a deeper understanding of the dangers facing you. For example, you may know that something is wrong and not be able to specify the details of what you need to be aware of. This game can help you identify it. Or, you may have awareness of the danger, but not know what to do about it.

Or,  your desires could be leading you into danger time and time again and you’re not learning from it. You can use this game to explore what that’s about and see if there’s something you can do to transcend the habit.

Step One: Access Your Gut Instincts.

Simply relax and gaze softly at this Reiki Chakra Key to open and balance your Third Chakra located at your Solar Plexus (the soft area in the front where your ribs go up).

Step Two: Balance Your Senses.

When DANGER is present, It’s essential to see things as they really are. See if you can remedy any “blind spots” or confusion by gazing softly at this Reiki Chakra Key for the five senses, together with these positive affirmations:

“I reclaim and balance my five senses.”

“I use them to be present and make sense of my current conditions and environment.”

“They help me to clear blind spots and confusion.”

“I use them to be aware of DANGER and find helpful solutions.”

“I sense things as they are really happening.”

 

Step Three: Connect with Your Instinctual Nature.

Tune into your psyche, your instincts and your connection to the natural world. Make a commitment to pay attention to signals from Nature and learn to respect the power of Mother Earth’s energies.

“I connect with my natural instincts, my timing and Soul resources.”

“I pay attention to my environment and allow it to inform me about elements of concern.”

 

Step Four: Slow down.

Danger often comes from being in too much of a hurry and pushing our way through. Sometimes, it’s the opposite – we’re not taking action when we know in our hearts it’s in our best interest to do so!

Gaze softly at the Circle to help you slow down and unwind any confusion around what’s really important. Take several deep breaths. Keep inhaling and exhaling until you’ve relaxed and your mind has slowed down.

“I slow down and allow my priorities to reveal themselves.”

 

Step Five: Uncover Your Awareness of the Danger.

Gaze at this Circle that accesses your intuition and unconscious awareness of a danger you are facing now. Imagine that you can gather up that inner library of experience and see what kind of knowledge comes forward.

Take your time and let the information emerge. Ask yourself:

“What is the real danger about? Is something about to happen? Is there anything or anyone in my environment that is dangerous to me or others? If so, where are they and what affect are they having?”

“How much harm is this situation causing for me and for others?”

Step Six: See it Calmly and With Discernment.

First, let’s make a couple of corrections that will improve your awareness of your situation…

Is any part of you getting caught up in panic? If so, breathe deeply and gaze at this symbol from Kuan Yin. Use the positive affirmations to help:

“I let go of turmoil and panic.”

“I can easily access serenity within.”

 

“I cut through the smoke screen that blocks clear perception.”

 

“I easily keep my bearings as I navigate my environment.”

 

“I release myself from the prison of doubt and confusion.”

“I have my free will to choose wisely.”

Now, let this Circle help you tune your senses back to a comfortable level. They could have bumped up too high, too loud or intense. If it helps, you can use this affirmation:

“I calm down and gather my wits. I connect with my common sense. I perceive things as they are.”

The DANGER may be upsetting. Don’t get carried away. Gaze softly at the symbol and breathe for a couple minutes to gather up your wits and get calm again (remember that viruses and other destructive energies feed off of strong emotions)

 

Step Seven: Clarify the Right Action(s) to Take.

Use this Circle to help you identify possible solutions that you can honestly take upon yourself without placing yourself in further, unnecessary danger. Explore different scenarios until you find a response that makes sense.

“What is something I could do that would be genuinely helpful to me?”

“Is there something to refrain from that would help me?”

 

“Are there other helpful actions I could take?”

Make a note of the suggestions that come. Times of danger can be filled with distractions that make it easy to forget. 

 

Step Eight: Dissolve Destructive Blueprints.

Imagine that the symbol below can help you clear away destructive patterns that may be blocking or threatening you.

“I dissolve the dangerous imprints of ________ and any connection I have ever had to them. I clear my field of destructive habits and the mental / emotional patterns that cause them. I send them all to the Light.” 

Step Nine: To manage yourself well in dangerous times, be sure that you stay grounded and centered.

Get your feet on the ground and connect with the positive energy of Mother Earth.

Step Eight: Close the Doors to Actions that Escalate or Invite Further Danger.

Your unconscious mind knows what’s helpful and what’s harmful to your body, mind and spirit. It’s time to close the door on any harmful pathways that are still open in your mind. See them disappear, as if they were never there.

“All harmful pathways are sealed and healed.”

“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

 

Congratulations on your newfound awareness about learning from danger!

“The time of DANGER can be especially good for inner development. By holding to fixed and virtuous ethics, by maintaining your inner vision and ideals, all things fall into a steady, tangible perspective. You will know your relationships to your environment, and in this way you can accomplish your aims. Although subjective, this perspective is now in accord with the problems facing you.” ~The I Ching Workbook, R.L Wing

How To Trust Your Gut Instinct

This Mind Exercise is about how to trust your gut instinct. Let’s start with the definition of instinct * that I like to use:

How to Trust Your Gut instinct“Instinct is primal and body centered. Its purpose is self-preservation. Instinct tells us that we’re tired, hungry, sad or afraid through a full body response – a feeling, not just a thought. The natural instinct for joy may be suppressed, mistuned and perverted by cultural conditioning.”

*from the Learning in the New Paradigm Series by Rheanni Lightwater: Mind Exercises to retrain your mind to focus on” balance” or “joy”, rather than “perfection.”


To have your own experience with how to trust your gut instinct, choose a situation that you have some resistance towards. When instinct goes out of balance it’s usually about something you fear. Or you could be disoriented by confusing changes in your external world. Once you have that situation, follow the directions for this simple series of Intuitive Learning Circles™. They’ve been put together to help you relax, contemplate the nature of instinct and integrate the information.


How to Trust Your Gut Instincts

Continue following the directions while you gaze softly at each Circle.

Step One: It’s easy to get confused by what other people want or social conditioning. Use this Circle to relax and establish an intention to get in touch with your true, gut instincts. These affirmations can help:

“I relax into myself.  I know who I am.’

“I distinguish my needs from the needs of others.”

“I release any agreement I have to distrust who I truly am.”

“I reject and repel any energies that are not mine.”

 

Step Two: Bring your attention to your heart and solar plexus area and “feel” yourself inside that area.

Here is an affirmation that works well:

“I am inside of me. Everything else is outside of me.”

It will help to imagine you can bring all the energy into focus on the center, open space of each Intuitive Learning Circle™.

 

Step Three: You feel Instinct in your solar plexus area, where your 3rd chakra is located. Use the Circle to let go of any tension in that area. Breathe into it. Let the energy get balanced and open there.

 

Step Four: Without being firmly positioned in the “home base” of your solar plexus, it’s very difficult to trust yourself and access courage. Use this affirmation:

“I am grounded and connected in my solar plexus.”

“I am upright and facing forward.”

 

Step Five: “I have found my courage and determination.”

“I let them strengthen and support me.”

 

Step Six: Now check in with your gut. What does it tell you to do? How might you go about doing so? The answer will be visceral.

Guidance that comes from balanced instinct is direct and action oriented. It’s purpose is for you to be okay, so if you’re getting too elevated and emotional, use the Circle to help you dial it down. Be patient and listen to what your body is communicating to you.

What do you need to do?

Once you get an action statement that feels right, Congratulations! You might want to make a note of it. The critical mind often likes to override the gut instinct with a lot of second-guessing, procrastination and feelings of overwhelm.

*If you had any difficulty going through this Mind Exercise, read Challenges to Mind Body Integration.

Extra-intuitive Activities

The following extra-intuitive activities aren’t required, but they can really help you excel in creating the very best of your talents, interests and passions…

Future Pacing

In our hypnotherapy and energy medicine classes, we talk about the importance of future pacing. What is that?

Future pacing is a way to deepen the effects of any mind body healing by projecting a preferred outcome into the future. Let’s use that idea to solidify what you’ve just learned about how to trust your gut instincts.


How to Trust Your Gut InstinctRemember that when instinct is out of balance, it’s easy to get lost. There is a lack of courage and everything is about avoidance – avoiding getting caught, procrastination and avoiding responsibility. In extremes, this gives rise to panic, scapegoating and disassociation. 

I think most people agree that it would be better to get back into balance and go for joy instead!

Use these symbols and positive affirmations from The Essential Human to access the very best qualities to nurture your instinctual promptings.

“I release grumpy, irritable, morose, sarcastic and antisocial behavior. I am now confident and resolute.”

 

“I release all false information. I now perceive clearly by shining light on the truth.”

 

“I release coming from a place of offensiveness or defensiveness. I now come from a place of being open to wisdom.”

 


INTEGRATION

Imagine that you can access your beneficial karma for trusting yourself. Gather all your good deeds in the center, blank area of this Circle.

“I access and utilize my beneficial karma for balanced, instinctual knowing.”

Completion

The mind intuitively appreciates closure. Let’s get grounded as we complete this mind exercise.

Place both feet on the floor and put your hands on your knees if you can. Gaze softly at the Circle and repeat the affirmation until you feel your body has fully settled in the present.

“I am grounded in the present.”

 

Ask yourself:

How will it feel to trust my gut instinct in the future?

What about later today or tomorrow?

A month from now?

How does it feel a year from now?

 

Congratulations!

You can thank yourself for taking the time today to learn how to trust your gut instinct – a gift that will make you feel a lot more empowered!

Bring all the energy of gratitude and appreciation in towards the center!

Finish it all up now by sealing and healing any pathways or holes that lead back to old harmful patterns or suffering.

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

Closure for Mind Body Healing

Be sure to rest now and do something nice for yourself!

Intuitive Reading with the Book of Change

How to use the Intuitive Learning Circles™ to consult with important books of divination like the I Ching or The Book of Change ~

The I Ching (pronounced ee cheeng) is an ancient book of divination that follows and predicts movements and energy flow in the cosmos. Intuitive readings that recognize the Tao encourage us to find our place in the cosmos and harmonize with it.

“To move with the tao (or gate through which all things move) is to be in a state of grace.”

Book of Change
Come into alignment with the Tao – the underlying principles of Nature.

One of the best things about The Book of Change is that it’s uniquely equipped to help you understand the nature of your circumstances in relation to the ebb and flow of nature itself.

This symbol helps your mind tune into information regarding the “Tao” or the natural flow of life, which is what the Book of Change is all about.

It’s easy to do, just relax and gently contemplate coming into alignment with the Tao.

 

This Chart helps you to align with your own destiny and direction within the Tao. Just relax and let it help you “align with your stars”.

 


Rheanni Lightwater – Intuitive Reading from the Book of Change

Rheanni Lightwater - Book of ChangeI Ching Workbook - R. L. WingIntuitive readers often say that it’s difficult to do a reading for yourself and that’s true. However, whenever I consult The Book of Change with the Intuitive Learning Circles™ I get very good results. With them, I am informed about key unconscious movements, concerns and decisions that need to be made within my psyche. For example, I often get forewarnings of unexpected or accidental encounters that I simply could not have been aware of on my own.

A simple sequence of Circles from Gifts from the Rainforest helps you frame a question or intention for an intuitive reading that you wouldn’t be able to formulate without a lot of experience. If you already have a particular question in mind or a choice that you’re considering, use it as a starting point.

This is the formula I use for insight into a variety of issues including health, timing and healing emotional dilemmas:


Come Into Balance with the Book of Change

Make sure the chakras for your senses are connected, balanced and clear.

 

Mind Body IntegrationContinue enhancing intuition 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.

Take 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.

The chakra at your sacrum (sacred bone) is an access point for tapping into the flow of the Tao. Take a minute to make sure it’s connected and balanced as well.

Activate Intuition

Begin by slowing down, so that you can get in better touch with the best intention for your reading. Gaze softly at this Intuitive Learning Circle™ for slowing down with an affirmation like:

“I slow down and bring my attention in, towards what’s truly important at this time.” 

 

While gazing softly at this next Circle, sort through your mind like you would sort through a pile of messy papers on your desk when you’re looking for something. You come across a really important piece of paper (or several) that you didn’t know was there. Use the Circle to help you find it and pull it out.

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

Clarify Intention

Move your attention to this next Circle and ask your gut:

“What do I need clarity about?”

Be patient and wait for information or an intention to emerge. Whatever comes up, make a note of it. Unconscious information often doesn’t make sense at first. Usually, it’s a general subject, possibly one that isn’t currently on your radar. Go with it and refrain from trying to force things or second guess yourself.

Or go to one of the Circles from Gifts from the Rainforest. Pick #1 – 49.

 

Continue your investigation. What concerns you about this issue?

Hopefully, by now more details are emerging from the unconscious mind and you’re more aware of them. If you sense an important Soul issue, go to a Circle from Soul Prayer Charts to help you know what it is. Pick #1-24.

Determine the Emotional Environment

Is there a particular emotion(s) that’s causing distress?

Are you holding that emotion towards yourself? Towards others or others to self?

Is there a decision about yourself that you need to change?

Is there an attitude, compulsion, obsession, or phobia that needs to be healed?

Choose An I Ching Hexagram

The symbol below is from SOS Soul Oriented Solutions and can be used to go through any list of possible choices where you want your Soul to help you find the opening to a solution and determine what process will help you the best. All you need to be is open and ask for true assistance. It’s especially good at helping you make a choice, fine tune your intuition and listen to your gut feelings.

In the case of the Book of Change, there are sixty-four hexagrams that might have useful information for you. So gaze at the SOS symbol and experiment with it. Remember that in this case, you’re looking for information or advice that will help you deal with the situation you just came up with.

What number between 1 – 64 comes to you first? Follow your inner guidance. If your mind is blocked or blank go here>

SOS - Soul Oriented Solutions

Whatever number comes to you, open your Book of Change and go to that Hexagram. You might need to read the whole commentary or just a portion of it. There are also what is called “changing lines” and you might be guided to read one of those. It could even be just one sentence!

Once you’ve read the advice, you may understand the message immediately or you might want to continue to get an even more detailed understanding.

Synchronicity

For example, perhaps you’d like more information about timing or how to synchronize your response in the most effective way.

 

This symbol is about timing and synchronization. Let your mind gently contemplate the symbol. Remember, no forcing! The more relaxed you are, the better this works.

 

 

 

The whole point of consulting the I Ching is to help you see your situation clearly so that you’re able to make an effective plan for handling it. As you look at the Circle below, ask yourself: “In this situation, what is the best timing for effective action?”

or “How long will this period of time go on?”

 

“Is there any danger present now?”

“If so, will it pass on it’s own or should I do something?”

 

“What can I do specifically to help myself?”

“Is there a number in the I Ching that can help me with that?”

If a hexagram number between 1-64 comes to you, go to that hexagram and do what you did earlier – read the portions that come up as important. If a number doesn’t come up, continue on with the question below.

 

“What do I need to do now?”

and “How might I go about doing it?”

You may get a clear answer through the Circle itself or you could be given another hexagram number and/or changing line. It may be the same or it may be different. Keep following this line of questioning until you feel satisfied with your answers. Write them down so you don’t forget.

How To Be More Intuitive

This Mind Exercise* is about how to be more intuitive. Let’s start with the definition of intuition that I like to use:

“Intuition is an inner knowing available to us when all of the senses, known and unknown are balanced and able to receive information that is usually filtered out by the conscious mind.”

How to Be More Intuitive

*from the Learning in the New Paradigm Series by Rheanni Lightwater: Games to retrain your mind to focus on” balance” or  “joy”, rather than “perfection.”


To have your own experience with how to be more intuitive, let’s go through this simple series of Intuitive Learning Circles™. They’ve been put together to help you relax, contemplate the nature of intuition and integrate the information.

Mind Body Integration

Mind Body IntegrationThe brain and body communicate through different channels when a part of you is crossed over the center of your body. If you feel resistant or stuck, cross or uncross a hand or foot over the midline of your body and go back to the Circle, breathing patiently. See if your thinking starts to move again. Let negative self-talk go by breathing through it.


Simply read the instructions and then follow through on the directions while you gaze softly at each Circle.

Step One: Slow down. Stop being in such a hurry.

It will help to imagine you can bring all the energy into focus on the center, open space of each Intuitive Learning Circle™.

 

Step Two: Let your senses get balanced. Some may be turned up too high and some too low.

You can adjust them like a radio dial until it feels just right.

 

Step Three: Intuition is an internal thing. Focus in on your heart center and let the energy get balanced and open there.

 

Step Four: Make sure you’re centered and balanced in your solar plexus as well (your solar plexus is that soft area in the front where your ribs go up).

 

Step Five: In this quiet and more centered place, ask a simple question that you want guidance about. Listen for the answer.

What is your inner guidance?

Intuition is simple and straightforward, so if you’re getting a big convoluted answer, that probably isn’t intuition. Be patient and go through the exercise again.

Once you get a heartfelt answer, congratulations! You have accessed your intuition! You might want to make a note of what you came up with. The critical mind often doesn’t like to remember the quieter, gentler voice of intuition.

Extra-intuitive Activities

The following extra-intuitive activities aren’t required, but they can really help you excel in creating the very best of your talents, interests and passions…

Future Pacing

In our hypnotherapy and energy medicine classes, we talk about the importance of future pacing. What is that?

Future pacing is a way to deepen the effects of any mind body healing by projecting a preferred outcome into the future. Let’s use that idea to solidify what you’ve just learned about how to be more intuitive.

Intuition out of balanceRemember that when intuition is out of balance, it tries to define “perfection” in extremes, which gives rise to fantasy, hallucination and wishful thinking. 

Let’s head that kind of intuition off at the pass right now!

Use these symbols and positive affirmations from The Essential Human to access the very best qualities to nurture your intuitive talents.

“I close the door on turmoil, panic and chaos. I now access serenity and calm.”

 

“I release my focus on conflict. I now open to peaceful and prosperous solutions.”

 

“I close the doors in my mind that lead to grumpy, hopeless, sarcastic or cynical behavior. I am now confident and resolute.”

 

“I release impatience, distractions and confusion. My actions now have purpose.”

INTEGRATION

Imagine that you can access your beneficial karma for being more intuitive. Gather all your good deeds in the center, blank area of this Circle.

“I access my beneficial karma for actualizing balanced and helpful intuition.”

“I plant new karmic seeds for the conditions I need to be more intuitive and to accomplish my heartfelt goals.” 

Completion

The mind intuitively appreciates closure. Let’s get present and grounded as we complete this mind exercise.

Place both feet on the floor and put your hands on your knees if you can. Gaze softly at the Circle and repeat the affirmation until you feel your body has fully settled in the present.

“I am grounded in the present.”

 

Ask yourself:

How will it feel to access my intuition in the future?

What about later today or tomorrow?

A month from now?

How does it feel a year from now?

Congratulations!

You can thank yourself for taking the time today to learn how to be more intuitive – a gift that will make your life a whole lot better!

Bring the energy of gratitude in towards the center and let it connect with your heart.

Finish it all up now by sealing and healing any pathways or holes that lead back to old, harmful patterns or suffering.

“All holes are sealed and healed.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

Be sure to rest now and do something nice for yourself!

Sustainable Prosperity In the New Paradigm

Moving into the New Paradigm – Plant Yourself in the Garden of Sustainable Prosperity.

Rheanni Lightwater, Reiki Master TeacherKuan Yin's Transformation Games - Sustainable ProsperityKuan Yin has been helping us through these I Ching Readings to transition from the old economic paradigm based on greed and fear to a new paradigm of co-operation and sustainable prosperity. Her advice springs from the I Ching, an ancient book of divination that follows the flow of the cosmos. Because of that, her advice and instruction comes from a different perspective than ours.

To help you better connect with her assistance, she uses the Intuitive Learning Circles ™ to communicate through meditation, affirmations and visualization. Try going through the game first, and if you have questions about how to use the Circles, you can check out Exploring the Intuitive Learning Circles here >

Kuan Yin’s I Ching Readings and Transformation Games can help you to identify problems, change your focus to positive solutions, ground yourself and get in the present. Simply relax and gaze at the Circles while contemplating Kuan Yins words. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek.


Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for: Hexagram #23 DETERIORATION (Splitting Apart)

Sustainable Prosperity in the New Paradigm


I Ching Deterioration - Sustainable Prosperity

“There is an impressive display of DETERIORATION in nearly every aspect of current events with an abundance of incompetent persons in positions of authority. If you’re feeling hopeless, it’s because you’re getting lost in the chaos, rather than focusing on solutions. Ask yourself:

“What am I paying attention to and is it helping?”

 

You may be experiencing shock that’s interfering with your ability to relax and focus on what really matters. Relax and use this affirmation to help you release whatever you’re fixated on. This may take some time.

“I let go of fixations that are trapped in my mind. I let all rigid thoughts soften and melt away.”

 

There’s a great and accelerated DETERIORATION in matters that pertain to the old ‘status quo.’ This has been going on for some time now and those issues are part of a larger, collective movement in the Cosmos. There is little that you can do in the arena of the old economy so don’t waste your energy or attention on it. Do what you can to look beyond the apparent disasters and focus on what you would like to create instead. What is truly important to you at this time?

Calm yourself with this Circle so that you can perceive things more clearly. Turn down the volume and get your senses into balance.

 

In order to reorganize your priorities based on sustainable prosperity, it’s essential to clear and balance your heart. Gaze softly at this Reiki Chakra Key to clear emotional toxins from your heart chakra. Take all the time you need to bring it into balance.

“My heart radiates with positivity.”

“This chakra is balanced and flows with integrity.”

Heart Chakra Healing

Next… prepare to move into the New Paradigm.

You can use the Circles in the next section to help you refocus on things that matter and that you can do something about. Start by checking with your inner guidance to notice if there’s a pathway in your mind that you habitually use that leads you back to harmful patterns from the old paradigm based on fear. There may be more than one.

When pathways are unproductive, it’s helpful to close them in your mind entirely. Use your imagination and this next Circle to see them all closing. It’s time to choose another avenue that can lead you to a New Paradigm based on Love.

 

If you’ve been moving your consciousness into the New Paradigm for a while,  it would be dangerous to assume that you have already replanted everything there or that you know how this is all supposed to work. That’s because an evolutionary transformation like this cannot happen all at once! Aspects of your energy and wellbeing have been entrenched in the old paradigm until just recently.

“I let go of assumptions that limit my vitality, my freedom to choose or that lead me off track.”

“I now assume ________ and that I’m going to need to be mindful as I move forward.”

 

Use this Chakra Key to help you unshackle the energy of the old paradigm from your wrists.

“I am free to use my energy wisely to support my highest good.”

 

Slow down and use this Circle to help you let go of things – projects, plans, organizations, people – that no longer serve you. If you let everything move in slow motion, you can begin to sense the things that are still holding you down or keeping you chained to the fear. You can let them go now. Feel your hands letting go. Your shoulders are dropping. Your jaw is relaxed.

 

Next… moving into the New Paradigm.

Imagine that you’re standing in the center, open space of this Circle. Once you can see yourself there, visualize all your gifts, talents and skills and place them in there with you. Do the same with other foundational aspects of your life, such as shelter, food and communication. Include your safety and stability needs. Imagine that the positive energies of courage, appreciation and gratitude are traveling down the lines – nurturing you and everything that’s important to your health and well-being.

Now visualize elements of the natural world that you would need to support and nourish your garden – air, water, etc. Be sure you have your right livelihood, monetary support and important goals and projects. Like plants that have been languishing without nourishment, they need to be replanted in healthy soil. Resolve to feed them with your joyful attention and intentions to help them grow and be strong.

 

Connect them all up in an interconnected web of gratitude, appreciation and sustainable prosperity.

 

Now, imagine you can firmly plant all this in your own garden of sustainable prosperity or the New Paradigm. There may be other parts of you that are already there. If so, great! It’s time to join them.

Ask your Soul to replant everything you gathered up from the old paradigm in the best, most advantageous areas. Allow them to connect through the energies of Love, joy and cooperation, rather than fear, suffering and pain.

 

Infuse your garden of sustainable prosperity with courage, determination, protection and purpose. This Circle can help you organize the energy correctly.

 

Now it’s important to confirm whether or not you’re heading in the right direction to properly nourish sustainable prosperity in the New Paradigm. The proper direction will feel joyous, light and calming.

“Am I heading in the correct direction now?”

Gaze at this Circle for several minutes until you feel confident that you’re heading in the direction of your highest good.

 

Now you’re ready to disengage from any leftover or out of date structures from the old paradigm. You can use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to detach from the struggle and chaos. Dissolve any negative mental or emotional attachments you have to slavery, injustice, poverty or hopelessness. It might help to imagine them like chains or storms that dissipate into sunlight and clear blue skies.

Mind Body IntegrationMake sure you do that both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body.

 

 

Finally, with this symbol, imagine that you can fill your being with Love, light and all the elements required for you to flourish in the new garden of sustainable prosperity.

“I am assisted in times of violence and fear.”

“I hold the victory of Love in mind.”

Congratulations!

The fact that you’ve taken the time now to plant yourself fully in the garden of true, sustainable prosperity will strengthen your resolve to prevent future suffering and conflict.”

Clear Perception – a Mind Exercise

Intuitive Guidance Using the Medicine of Dog Wisdom: Clear Perception

Clear Perception - Dog MedicineYour gut instinct is an awesome inner guidance system and has access to all kinds of information that you’re not consciously aware of. The only trick is that you need to be paying attention! 

Luckily, you can learn to use Dog Medicine with this simple Mind Exercise to hone your intuitive abilities and develop clear perception.

How to Use this Mind Exercise for Clear Perception

Know When You’re Heading in the Wrong Direction

There are several reasons why you might be unconsciously heading in the wrong direction. One likely possibility is that you’re being distracted and confused by all the chaos going on around you.

Your senses may have gotten all knocked out of balance.  Fortunately, dog energy works incredibly well to help you with your inner guidance system – warning you to slow down and get your feet back under you.

Gaze softly at the Circle and take a moment to consciously gather up all your senses. Bring them into balance so that you can perceive things more clearly.  Imagine you can adjust the volume for seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting and smelling! Take all the time you need.

Intuition Out of Balance Can Over-ride Clear Perception

There are times when intuition gets out of balance and speaks to the unconscious mind  about “how we wish things were, rather than how they are.” In extreme, this makes us vulnerable to fantasy, illusion, paranoia and those who would love to sell us up the river with false claims!

Certainly, we’ve all had wishful thinking about that perfect lover or fears about the next worst case scenario. Yet, it’s important to not get too carried away. Otherwise, we may miss some information that’s really important in the here and now. Dog medicine is here to tell us that something really important is happening right now and we need to be paying attention!

So, before you plunge into the great unknown, take a few minutes to play the Mind Exercise below, using the Intuitive Learning Circles™. If you follow the directions, you can develop Clear Perception, make friends with dog energy and get all kinds of insight and guidance. 

Get Your Feet Firmly Planted On the Ground

Relax and gaze softly at the center open space of this Circle while you go through a few positive affirmations. If there’s a question, just be open to your gut response.

“I slow down because things may be moving too fast for me to sense the truth. “

“I’m willing to admit I don’t know what’s going on. Asking for help is a blessing.”

“Is my inner guidance sending me a warning?”

“Do I need to let go of something? Change something?”

“Do my instincts want to redirect my attention to a solution or something else?”

“In either case, am I willing to listen and learn?”

You may be surprised at the answers that are coming to you. If it didn’t work, relax! You can go back and do it again. Journaling is often a help.

Be sure to check the directions again and follow them if you’re not sure.

 

Use this next Circle the same way and ask:

“Am I willing to trust in the power of not knowing?”

“Is the ‘vibe’ around me helpful or harmful?”

“I allow clear perception to heighten my instincts and intuition.”

Very interesting, isn’t it? We instinctively know when the “vibe” is right or wrong, but we often don’t trust the messages we get. We doubt and second-guess ourselves or we might willfully ignore our inner warning system and try to force our way through.

Look at the Circle again and ask, “Am I heading in the direction of my best interests?”

“Am I making decisions that are in my best interests?”

“Am I taking actions that are helpful, harmful or just plain ineffective?”

If you’re not clear yet, keep going with the exercise. You may need a few more easy corrections before the truth emerges.

Clear Perception and Being Present

Clear Perception - Gut Instinct

Often, how well we listen to our inner guidance is affected by how present we are in our bodies. It’s called gut instinct because when we’re really present, we can feel it in our solar plexus (the soft area in the front where our ribs go up).

You can use the Circle below with its positive affirmations to help you become more present and aware. Just relax and breathe while you gently look at it for a couple of minutes. Feel free to move at anytime in any way to help you embody your experience…

“I detach from confusion and chaotic energy.”

“I am present and willing to hear the truth. I face the facts.”

Once you’ve finished centering yourself, hopefully, you’re feeling much better!

Use Dog Medicine to Handle Your Agreements Appropriately:

Another reason why we might not perceive clearly is because there’s some kind of problem with an agreement or commitment we’ve entered into on some level. In this busy, modern life, people tend to take their agreements too lightly and don’t realize how important their word is. Perhaps it seems like too much effort or too complicated. Yet, if you really want to be be loyal to yourself, being clear about your agreements is super important. Especially agreements that you’ve made with yourself!

Here’s some tips about how to handle agreements successfully:

  1. We can keep our agreements and stay in integrity with our word.
  2. We can release agreements when they’re done or no longer serve us.
  3. Or, we can consciously re-negotiate them when they need to be changed.

It’s also a good idea to pay attention if someone hasn’t been keeping their agreements with us. If that’s happening, dog medicine suggests that it’s best to deal with the indiscretion asap. When we allow someone to break their word with us and say or do nothing about it, we lose our own integrity by being disloyal to ourselves.

Stay Calm:

It’s okay. Our situations are changing at a rapid pace and so are our priorities. To help you identify problem agreements, use this Circle to help you slow down again. Focus on yourself and your current goals.

“I bring my senses back into balance. 

I see myself and my goals as they really are in the present.”

 

Once you can perceive clearly, you may ask yourself:

“Am I trying to keep agreements that are harmful to me? Is it time to renegotiate a pertinent agreement? or Am I ignoring an important agreement that I need to follow through on?”

If so, can you tell what those agreements are about? Take all the time you need with this… what insights do you get?

If you ignore them, they may turn around and bite you!

Use this Soul Contract Circle to imagine that any harmful agreements you may have are like contracts that can be melted down to adjust for what’s needed or burned up entirely. Use the Circle to visualize all harmful contracts interacting with a sacred, violet flame. Here’s some affirmations to assist you if you like:

“I release all agreements that no longer serve me.”

“I let go of ___________.   I reframe ____________.  I stop ____________.”

Possible new agreements could be:

“I am loyal and true to my Self. My needs are a priority.”

“I have faith. I listen to my instincts and take good care of my Self.”

“I ________________________________.”

Use Dog Medicine to Help You Sniff Out the Truth:

To complete the correction in your perception, it’s important to realize where your attention has really been. Use the Circle below like you did with the others and see if you can determine what you’ve been focusing on consciously or unconsciously that isn’t in your best interests.

“What have I been paying too much attention to?”

“What action(s) do I need to take to truthfully correct the situation?”

Pull yourself back out of any fantasies, delusions or unconscious fears.

Energy Medicine for the New Paradigm

 

 

It’s very important that you be present, paying attention to your own actions and using your beneficial karma to create your life. Imagine those beneficial actions you’ve taken in the past are all gathered like seeds in the center of this Circle. Visualize positive life force traveling down the lines towards your helpful karma, nourishing them and encouraging them to grow!

 

Now it’s time to redirect your attention to helpful people, opportunities and places. For additional help, ask these questions:

“What is my priority at this time?”

“What is my natural place in this situation – where do I belong?”

“Am I in the New Paradigm of love and co-operation or the old paradigm based on fear and greed?”

 

Finally! It’s time to close the door on all those misuses of your time, attention and energies.

“I close the door on any drain or strain on my time, space, attention or energy.”

“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

“I trust the wisdom of dog medicine.”


Congratulations!
 

You now have clear perception about what’s really important to you – and you have some guidance about what to do about it. Not only that, you’ve just gotten a key insight that’s going to save you a lot of trouble in the long run!

Know When Someone Is Lying

It seems like lying, misinformation and half-truths are everywhere. How can you know when someone is lying to you and when they’re telling the truth?

Did you know that you can instinctually develop ways to know when someone is lying to you?

Your gut instinct is a very good lie detector – as long as you’re present and paying attention! It’s just that for some reason, the information is being blocked from your conscious awareness and you can’t see the signs.

Know When Someone is LyingSome lies are obvious, yet in today’s social and political landscape, lies can get lost in the sheer overload of information and misconceptions. Group think. Mind games. Herd mentality. It’s like a communication virus –  sabotaging every facet of how we think, learn and try to get along!

In this exercise we’re going to cover several reasons why you might not know when someone is lying to you.

Play Our Free Online Mind Exercise to Hone Your Gut Instinct and Develop Your Intuition

One big problem is shock. Unfortunately, shock can take up a lot of mental bandwidth and keep us from being able to discern properly and actually make us numb to all the lies that are bombarding us from every direction. That’s why we’re going to start this game by clearing out any shock that might block your ability to sense misinformation, half-truths or know when someone is lying to you outright. Take several deep breaths and relax while you look at this Circle that helps you release shock and inner conflict.

Imagine you can use it to focus in on a conflict or rigid thought that’s preoccupying your mind at the moment. 

What are you concerned about?

You may get a conscious image or message, or you may not.

If your mind is blank or frozen, focus on how “blank” or “frozen” it is, then relax into it with your body.

Once you have a sense that your mind has found the blockage, imagine that you can melt it, like a big iceberg floating out in the ocean. Just melting away in the Sun. 

Allow your iceberg to melt away completely – until it’s gone.

Check for other blockages or conflicts that you can do the same with.


Mind Body IntegrationIt helps to  gaze softly at each Circle both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body for full integration. 

Feel free to move at anytime in any way to help you embody your experience!

Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to continue with the main exercise…

Know When Someone is Lying to You

Another reason could be that you have a “blind spot.” For some reason, you’ve been conditioned to ignore certain things or not see things coming. You may be able to remedy some of that by gazing softly at this Reiki Chakra Key, together with these positive affirmations:

“I reclaim and balance all of my senses.”

“I use them to be present and alert.”

“I use them to sense what will keep me safe, productive and well.”

“I can clearly sense what will help me to _______________.”

 

Your thought process may have been thrown for a loop or you could be in a state of confusion due to so much information and so many changes going on around you. 

Excess emotional stress can cause problems with switching, which is where your body and mind have gotten out of sync with each other.

In that situation, a part of the mind gets confused about which direction is which and is unable to communicate properly to the rest of you, including your body. Other terms for this might be dyslexia or the “twisties”.

Use this Circle to help you get your bearings again. It helps to use affirmations like:

“I am positioned correctly inside my body.”

“Right is to the right of me. Left is to the left of me.”

“Up is above me and down is below me.”

“I am inside of me. Others are outside of me.”

 

Another possibility is that you’re being distracted. Distractions are a liar’s best friend, because if you’re not paying attention, liars can get away with all kinds of things. 

To see if this is happening with you, experiment with this Circle that helps you focus your attention. If you follow the directions, you can get useful answers that could really help you out.

All you have to do is relax and gaze softly at the center open space of this Circle while you ask yourself some simple “yes” or “no” questions. Be sure to be receptive and listen for the answer that comes.

“Am I being lied to?

Is this a deliberate all- out lie or is there a misconception going on?

Are half-truths involved?

If so, do I know who’s involved?

Male or female? More than one person? 

Is this group-think or propaganda?

Could it involve an idea or project I’m working with?”

Sometimes we sabotage ourselves with negative self-talk or false inner guidance. This Circle can help you be more aware of it.

 

Is something based on a lie I don’t know about?”

“Am I listening to some false guidance?”

“Am inadvertently lying to myself?”

“Do I have a blind spot here?”

“Am I telling myself something that’s causing me to doubt myself?”

You may be surprised at the answers that came to you. If it didn’t work, you can go back and do it again. Repetition builds confidence!

If the answer you get is “no, I’m not being lied to,” count yourself lucky, you’re a very fortunate person! If the answer is “yes” or “maybe”, you might want to continue with the following extra-intuitive activities to see what’s going on and get some emotional healing around the issue.

Extra Intuitive Activities

We might block information about lies because we don’t want to believe it!

Of course, this is understandable, yet the lies or misconceptions could really be doing some damage. It doesn’t do any good to pretend that something isn’t a problem when it actually is. When we try to deny the truth, we’re actually sabotaging our own best intentions.

The good news is, if you know when someone is lying or giving you incorrect information, you have an opportunity to save yourself from a tremendous amount of damage. 

Use this Circle to gently ask yourself:

“Am I willing to know when someone isn’t telling the truth?”

“In this situation, am I blocking myself from the truth?”

 

Use this next Circle the same way and ask:

“Am I willing to know what the lie is?”

“Is it helpful for me to know in this case?”

“If I’m not willing, am I open to the possibility?”

Very interesting, isn’t it? We instinctively know when someone is lying, but we often don’t want to know. Look at the Circle again and ask: “Is there a part of me that’s being left in the dark?”

“How much damage has been done?”

“About how long has this been going on?”

“Do I want to shift my perspective and see things as they really are?”

If you’re not clear what the lie is yet, keep going with the exercise. You may need a few more easy corrections before the truth emerges.

A lot of times, how we see these things is affected by how present we are in our bodies. It’s called gut instinct because when we’re really present, we can feel it in our solar plexus (the soft area in the front where our ribs go up). You can use this Circle to help you become more aware of what you’re feeling there. Just relax and breathe while you gently look at it for a minute or so.

“I am present and aware.”

 

Another reason why we might not want to know about the lie is because we’re afraid that we won’t know what to do about it once we find out. Perhaps we don’t want to face it and it seems easier to blame others or just look the other way.

“I am present and willing to hear the truth. I face the facts.”

 

Having courage to face the truth is one of the most important things we can develop in ourselves. A mind without courage cannot expand and learn new ways of being.

Use this Circle to help you remember a time when you had the courage to face the truth and do what needed to be done. Once you find that experience, relax and let your body remember what it feels like.

“I have the courage, the resources and the capacity to face the truth.”

 

 

When you’re under the influence of a lie, it’s useful to release your agreement to fall under its spell. Use this Soul Contract Circle to imagine that the lie (or lies) are like contracts that you can burn. Use the Circle to visualize all those contracts burning up into ashes. Let these affirmations assist you if you like:

“I release all agreements to be used, intimidated, entrapped or ______.”

“I let go of the lies from _________ and the lies about _________.”

I discard any tendencies to be careless, foolish, misguided or cheated.”

“I make a decision to take good care of myself. I protect myself against lies and deception. My Soul knows what’s best for me to do.”

 

Sometimes it’s really important to face the truth and understand what’s required of us to change. Use the Circle below like you did with the others and give yourself a chance to reorganize your awareness.

“I let go of wishful thinking. I reorganize my mind to trust and follow my instincts. I naturally know what to do.”

Make notes of what you think would be helpful to you. “When it comes to __________, it would help to __________ and  ___________.” 

 

We often overlook, ignore or forget the details and other alternatives available to us. Use the center, open area of this Circle to help you focus in on the details of your situation.

“Is there some other detail that I need to be more aware of?”

“Are there other options or choices I could make?”

Stay with it and wait patiently for new information to make its way to you.

 

Meditate on the DNA symbol with this affirmation. Relax into it with your mind, body and Soul.

“I find an opening for the truth. The path is clear.”

 

Once you can sense that opened path, ask yourself this important question:

“What is the best, most joyful thing for me to do in this situation?”

 

Empower your ability to follow through with what is best for you.

“I am empowered to connect with my highest guidance and to follow through with my highest good in mind.” 

 

Congratulations! You now know when someone is lying to you – and when you listen to your gut, you know what to do!

You’ve just given yourself an amazing gift that’s going to save you a lot of trouble in the long run. Be sure to close the door on old emotional channels of misinformation and pain.

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

 

Now is a good time to take a walk or go out into Nature to help this all integrate!

How To Develop Healthy Boundaries

SOS Self-care Formula #4: Develop Healthy Boundaries

SOS - Develop Healthy BoundariesMany people, especially those who are highly sensitive or empathic, want to learn how to develop healthy boundaries because they are so open to thoughts and energies coming from other people. Sometimes those thoughts get attached in their minds and spin around, causing a great deal of discomfort.

If the pathways remain open, all kinds of trouble (karma, issues, illness or confusion) can pass back and forth between people without their awareness. If left unchecked, this type of attachment can manifest in negativity, sudden and mysterious illnesses, mental confusion, issues with prosperity or chronic states of overwhelm.

It’s a valuable skill to know how to shift your energy and Develop Healthy Boundaries.

Self-care Formula #4 from SOS – Soul Oriented Solutions uses affirmations and the Intuitive Learning Circles to help you learn to consciously close off the pathways to busy or negative thoughts and shift into a more positive mindset. Here’s an example of how it works. Simply gaze softly at the Circle while you contemplate each of these positive affirmations:

“I reclaim and balance my five senses.”

“I focus them to be present and aware of appropriate boundaries.”

“I use them to become aware of intrusive thoughts, attachments, illness and confusion so that I can let them go.”

“I focus on a hopeful future and productive actions that will benefit my health and happiness.”

Use Develop Healthy Boundaries when you are:

  • Agitated or feeling out of sync
  • Distressed by recent news
  • Getting negative or anticipating hardship
  • Feeling claustrophobic
  • Unable to meditate or sit still
  • Obsessed with a particular person or situation.

Here’s how it works: Find a quiet place if possible, where you won’t be disturbed for about twenty minutes. Follow the sequence of symbols while you read their accompanying instructions. Gaze gently at each Circle for about two minutes. A longer or shorter time may be necessary.

Mind Body Integration

Mind Body IntegrationFor best results, look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.

Let yourself breathe and relax as much as possible. Don’t worry if the images move around or change in any way. That just means the Circles are working and that your mind and body are relaxing.
Be sure to go through the entire formula and at the end, give yourself time to rest and integrate.

Developing a quiet mind and light heart changes your perspective and that makes it easier to follow through with your true priorities.

Gently contemplate each step for clarity and better boundaries…


Step 1. Balance

Begin by consciously breathing in on the count of three and slowly exhaling on the count of five. It’s helpful if you can breathe in through your nose. Do that three or four times while you gently focus on the Circle.
Continue breathing and bring your awareness to your tailbone.

What do you need to get in balance about?

 

Step 2. Calm

Keep breathing with your belly soft and relaxed.
Let your shoulders drop.
Gaze softly at the Circle and imagine you can turn down the feelings or thoughts that are turned up too high, just like the volume on a radio dial. Be sure to do that both crossed and uncrossed.

What thoughts relax you? 

 

Step 3. Centering

See if you can collect any noisy thoughts or distractions into the center of this Circle. You may sense something like a web or a bunch of strings that have gotten all tangled up with each other. Or, you may get a sense of an open, gaping hole. Whatever it is, bring it all into the center.

Are there any distractions to let go of?

 

Step 4. Protection

Now that you have all the distractions gathered up, let the next Circle help you close that gaping hole or any other open pathways between you and all those noisy thoughts.
Keep closing the hole until all pathways are completely sealed and healed.

What are you ready to say goodbye to?

 

Step 5. Beauty

Now you’re ready to shift your attention. Breathe in and exhale. Beauty is everywhere. Consciously turn your attention to it.
Take your time and let the Circle help you call the most majestic, inspiring scene into your mind that you can imagine. Form a mental picture of what it’s like. Imagine the sounds and how it would feel to be there.

What beautiful places have you been or would like to go to?

 

Step 6. Trust

Come back to your breathing again and notice how calming it is.
You can sense the steady rhythm of your heart.
The gentle expansion and contraction of your lungs.
Breathing in and letting go. Learning to trust.

What can you trust? 

 

Step 7. Intention

Give yourself permission to slow down and focus your energy on your priorities. Turn your attention to what really matters to you. Can you name what’s most important?
Let the Circle help you lift any falsehood or pressure you may feel right up off of you and send it to the Sun. Without all that pressure, it’s easier to know what your true priorities are.

What’s important to you now?

 

Step 8. Grounding

Gather your resources and get present in your body. Put your feet on the ground and feel your connection with the Earth.
If you like, you can stretch or move around in any way that feels good.
Flexing your fingers and toes can really help.

What do you feel in your body?

 

Step 9. Surrender

Imagine with each new, relaxing breath you are able to fill your heart with compassion and understanding for yourself.
Let any heaviness you feel lift up and out of you.
Dark clouds are dissolving into blue skies and sunlight.

What can you do that expresses love?

 

Step 10. Resolution

Before you finish this formula, make a commitment to stay centered and follow through on your priorities. Your health and happiness are important.
You can easily deflect foreign energies, other people’s thoughts or expectations.
It’s genuinely joyful to have a quiet mind and a light heart.

What joyful decisions can you make?

 

Step 11. Completion

Use the Circle to help you finish closing any harmful pathways that would lead you back to the noise and distractions of the external world.
Close the doors and seal the leaks – as if they were never there.
You are calm and ready to follow through now. Your mind is able to rest now.

 How do you feel now?

 

Finish this formula with some thoughts to come back to…

What are some words of encouragement I could give myself?

 

What are some ways I could be gentler with myself?

 

What are some things I am grateful for?

 

Be sure to give yourself time to rest and integrate. Now might be a good time to take a walk or go out into Nature if you can.

Simplify Your Life

Transformation Game: Simplify Your Life

Kuan Yin's Transformation GamesThe energy continues to change! As we go through the transformation from the old paradigm to the New Paradigm, the ability to ADAPT and Simplify Your Life promises to be more valuable than ever.

Transformation Games are inspired by Kuan Yin, a beloved and respected healing guide among natural health and energy medicine practitioners.

*Caution! Her advice, as always, is direct and to the point! You will want to get out something to take notes with.


Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for:

Hexagram # 17 – ADAPTING by Simplifying Your Life

Simplify Your Life - A Transformation Game

“Simplicity is the path of inner direction and self worth. Examine your goals and the standards you have set for yourself. If they are unworthy, inefficient or nonexistent, it will be difficult to make significant progress in a productive direction. ADAPTING your mindset and how you’re using your energy is the appropriate response at this time. Use your inner wisdom to adjust to the realities of your new environment. See things through the lens of common sense and inner guidance. Dispense with ungrounded over-indulgences in whatever form they take.

To clear away complications and wasted effort, it may be necessary for you to refocus and look at your situation from a more objective perspective. As you do so, remember the strength and power that lives within you. By ADAPTING to your new awareness and simplifying your life, you will find many unexpected rewards.”

This Game is made up of Intuitive Learning Circles™, pertinent questions and positive affirmations that will:

    • give you a new perspective
    • activate your heart wisdom and
    • help you ADAPT to a simpler mindset by clearing up mental and emotional clutter.

Some questions to consider as you play Simplify Your Life are:

“Am I making things more complicated than they need to be?”

“Am I wasting my time and energy chasing after a thousand different things?” or

“How can I focus on the aspects of my life that are most important to me and prioritize my actions?”

If you choose one of these questions to contemplate for a few minutes and then go through the game, you’ll be able to shift your attitude and refocus your mind very quickly.


Why Simplify Your Life?

The pressures of life seem to increase everyday so we need to find guidance that comes from a reliable source. Go through the sequence anytime you feel scattered or overwhelmed. By going within and allowing your Inner Guidance to show you the way, you can simplify your life, make productive decisions and move forward with greater self confidence while you let the chaos take a back seat.”

How to Play Simplify Your Life:

Simply look at the sequence of Circles below while you ponder the questions or positive affirmations that go with them.

Mind Body Integration

Mind Body IntegrationFor best results, look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.


Take a few breaths and relax. Use a soft focus to help you go within and access new energy and clarity. What you do with the information you come up with is up to you!

1. To begin, look at this symbol with a soft, relaxed gaze. Repeat to yourself several times:

“I am ready, willing and able to shift my perception from scattered to focused  –  from complexity to simplicity – from distractions to priorities.”

 

2. While looking at this Circle, think about the different activities you are engaged in. Ask yourself:

“Am I putting too much pressure on myself?”

“Am I spreading myself too thin?”

“Have I been seeing this situation honestly?”

 

3. Notice if the whole situation makes you feel anxious or uneasy. Breathe a few times and allow this Circle to help you to calm down and see more clearly.

 

4. Use this Circle from Reiki Chakra Keys to open and balance your third eye chakra. You can do this by focusing your attention on the Circle while you relax and breathe for a few moments. Use these positive affirmations to help:

“I open my intuition and common sense to become aware of what I truly need. 

I need to _______________.”

Once you feel focused, ask for genuine help from your Soul resources to simplify your life and balance your priorities.

 

 

5. Now that you’ve cleared up some of your misperceptions, you can use these next Circles to help you separate fact from fiction. Start by asking yourself:

“What percentage of the work that I’m doing is actually benefitting me?”

“Are there any activities or assumptions I’m making that are actually a waste of my time and pulling me off track?”

If so, can you name what they are?

Are there any distractions pulling you off track? If so, how?

 

“Is there clutter I could clear up that would help me get back on track?” 

Make sure it’s your clutter! If it belongs to someone else, use the Circle to visualize sweeping it all up and sending it back to wherever it belongs. 

 

“Am I wasting energy and time due to lack of focus?”

“Is there some other issue that I need to be aware of?”

 

6. Relax for a minute and tune into your solar plexus area. Let the energy get balanced in your 3rd chakra.

 

Is there something about the situation that reminds you of the way your family sometimes behaves? If so, are you willing to let it go? Gently visualize letting that energy go to the Sun and disappearing.

 

 

7. Relax with this image for a minute or two.

“I am willing and able to let go of complications and simplify my life.”

 

8. As you gaze softly at this symbol from Divine Nature Activated, imagine that you can clear up the communication lines between your mind and your body.

    • If communication lines seem tangled up, see them going to the Sun and disappearing. 
    • If communication seems outdated, see your internal system upgrading.
    • If you seem disconnected, imagine your communication lines straightening out and connecting properly within yourself and the outside world.

(You’ll want  to do this while you’re both crossed and uncrossed over the mid-line of your body).

 

 

9. Take your time and use this Circle to clear confusion or complexities out of your mind. You may see them as a million details, numbers, calculations or just a bunch of heavy smoke.

“I clear away the smoke screen so I can see what would actually help me.”

 

10. Now that you’re perceiving things more clearly, ask a few more questions:

“What am I struggling with and am I willing to let it go?”

If you are willing, go ahead and send it to the Sun as you did with the others.

If you’re not willing to let it go, at least you now know what’s really going on.

 

11. Now that you’ve gone through the Simplify Your Life Game, see if you can use this Circle to give voice to what’s really important.

“I  access my true voice and can express what I truly need. I need to _______________.”

 

Once you have what’s important, place that intention in the middle of this Circle and consciously send your energy towards it for improved manifesting. Just like aiming at a bull’s eye!

 

 

11. Help yourself to move forward in the right direction by using this Circle to seal and heal all the holes that have been draining your energy.

“All holes are sealed and healed.”

“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

12. Finish the game by making sure the protection of your aura is all sealed and healed – a finishing step that will help your health and focus even more!

Congratulations!

Thank yourself for taking the time today to clarify between things that are helpful and those that aren’t. You’ve given voice to what’s important right now and as a result, saved yourself a lot of time and trouble. Not only that, you’ve let go of some epigenetic patterning that’s been cluttering up the situation. This is a positive step in the right direction!

Bring the energy of gratitude in towards the center and let it connect with your heart.

“I am empowered to simplify my life. I am ready, willing and able to follow through on my true priorities.”

Now is a good time to take a walk or go out into Nature to help this all integrate. Be prepared for new ideas and solutions to make their way towards you.
