Intuitive Guidance Using the Loyalty and Clear Perception of Dog Medicine:
Your 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 Mind Exercise to hone your intuitive abilities and develop clear perception about where you’re heading.
This symbol accesses inner guidance about protection. Gaze at it softly and ask:
“Am I heading in the right direction?”
If the answer you get is “yes,” you don’t need this particular exercise right now.
If you don’t get a clear answer because your mind has gone blank, you would be wise to go through Formula #1 Healing Emotional Shock first, and then come back to this one.
However, if your answer is a clear “no,” take twenty minutes or so out of your schedule and go through this Mind Exercise. A few minutes now could save you a lot of time and trouble later!
First, a word about environmental changes and getting a grasp on the larger picture…
Most people know on an unconscious level that a shift has occurred. However, the conscious mind may still be acting as if everything’s still the same.
In order to ADAPT, it’s very helpful for our minds to have signs and maps to assist us as we navigate the new terrain. That is the reason and purpose for all the symbols and Intuitive Learning Circles on this site.
For example, If you meditate on the “map” available in this image, your mind can get a better grasp of how it can reorganize your energy in the New Paradigm we’ve entered…
The imprint of common ground based on cooperation, joy, equality and balanced prosperity.
If You Would Like To Navigate Your Journey with Clear Perception, You’ll Need to Know If You’re Heading in the Wrong Direction ~
There are several reasons why you might be unconsciously heading in the wrong direction.
For example, 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 this Reiki Chakra Key to get your bearings again. Take a minute or two to consciously gather up all your senses and really connect with them for greater awareness.
Another possibility could be that your energy is 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 in your energy field.
Relax with it for a few minutes until things smooth out and you feel more like yourself again.
Be sure to do that both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body.
Your senses could be turned up too high or too low.
That often happens when our emotions get out of balance. When we spend too much time in the watery depths, we can start to fantasize about how we would like things to be, rather than acknowledging how they actually are.
It’s natural to do that, however, we need to be able to pull back into the here and now and not get too carried away.
Imagine you can use this Circle to adjust the volume for all your senses! Breathe in and take all the time you need.
You don’t want to miss some important information or an opportunity that you need to take advantage of. Dog medicine is here to tell you that something really important is happening right now and you need to be paying attention!
Connect to the new flow of Chi’ available in the New Paradigm. Before you continue, let this symbol help you make changes and connect with the generative energy flow of the New Paradigm.
“I close down harmful energy channels from the past.”
“I adapt to the positive flow of chi’ available in the New Paradigm
to the best of my ability.”
“I connect to the new, life affirming channels of communication.”
Your energy may be scattered because so many things are going on. Or your timing could be off, causing you to jump ahead before it’s a good idea to do so.
Take a moment and bring yourself back into the present. Open and close your hands, take a look at the date and time. Remember your name, the city you’re in or how old you are. Doing these things can really help you get present and aware of what’s going on around you.
Once you feel present, ask yourself:
“Am I jumping to any conclusions about my situation?”
If your answer is “yes,” stop and reconsider before you make any moves. Retrace your steps and see where the error is.
Taking steps one at a time is essential whenever you’re in unfamiliar territory! What else might you need to be aware of?
You may have gotten disconnected from your instinctual nature.
Use the Circle to help you reconnect so that you can get back in touch with your gut instincts, your environment and the things that really matter.
Once you feel connected again, ask yourself:
“Am I getting instinctual messages about things I’m doing or not doing?”
“Is there any part of me that’s holding onto old energy or keeping me unhappy?”
If your answer is “yes” to that last question, it would be wise to stop and follow the guidance you get if you can.
Finally, your energy could be misdirected. We can use intuition to guide us properly, or we can misuse it by giving into wishful thinking, illusion, paranoia and listening to those who would love to sell us up the river with false claims.
Do you sense anything that’s being misused? Is there an old habit that needs to be deconstructed or something that’s draining your energy?
Balanced intuition and instinct can tell you when something really important is happening that you need to be paying attention to!
Before you plunge into the great unknown, take a few more minutes to go through this centering exercise, Develop Clear Perception, where you can make friends with dog energy and get all kinds of insight and guidance.
Slow Down and Get Your Feet Firmly Planted On the Ground
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.”
“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 with this affirmation:
“I allow clear perception to heighten my instincts and intuition.”
“Am I willing to trust in the power of balanced intuition and instinct?”
“Is the ‘vibe’ around me helpful or harmful?”
Very interesting, isn’t it? We instinctively know when the “vibe” is right or wrong, but we often don’t appreciate the messages we get. We doubt and second-guess ourselves or we might willfully ignore our inner guidance system and try to force our way through.
Look at the Circle again and ask,
“Am I heading in the direction of my best interest?”
“Am I making decisions that are in my best interests?”
“Am I taking actions that are helpful, harmful, misguided or simply 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
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 and we can feel it in our solar plexus (the soft area in the front where our ribs go up).
In times of confusion and stress, the solar plexus chakra can close down or get blocked off. Use this Chakra Key to make sure it’s open and functioning properly.
You can use the Circle below with its positive affirmations to help you become more centered and aware in that solar plexus area. 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, upright and facing forward. I am willing to hear the truth.”
“I maintain a position that keeps me balanced, centered and grounded in the truth.”
Once you’ve finished centering yourself, hopefully, you’re feeling much better!
Use Dog Medicine to Handle Your Agreements Appropriately:
Another big 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 paying attention to what we say seems like too much effort or too complicated. Yet, if you really want to be be loyal to yourself, being clear about your word and your agreements is super important. Especially agreements that you’ve made with yourself!
Here’s some tips about how to handle agreements successfully:
- You can keep your agreements and stay in integrity with your word.
- You can release agreements when they’re complete or no longer serve you.
- Or, you can consciously re-negotiate them when they need to be changed.
By the way, it’s also a good idea to pay attention if someone hasn’t been keeping their agreements with you. If that’s happening, it’s best to deal with the indiscretion asap. When we allow someone to break their word with us and then say or do nothing about it, we lose our own integrity by being disloyal to ourselves.
Stay Calm and Take a Few Deep Breaths:
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. Ask yourself:
“Have I been trying to keep agreements that are harmful to me? Is it time to renegotiate a pertinent agreement? or Am I overlooking 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.”
Use Dog Medicine to Help You Find Your Way:
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 operating in the New Paradigm based on equality, co-operation and balanced prosperity or the old paradigm of fear, dissatisfaction and greed?”
“Does something need to change?”
“Is something out of place, missing or out of order?”
“Am I listening to bad advice?”
“Am I heading in the right direction?”
Dissolve Destructive Blueprints
Use this symbol to help you gather up any misunderstandings, mistaken ideas or miscommunications and release them to the Light.
“I release all obstructions to clear perception.”
Let any confusion or heaviness you may feel lift up and out of you like dark clouds dissolving into beautiful sunlight.
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 Door on Confusion and Turn Your Energy Around.
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 my Soul’s protection.”
“I trust the wisdom of balanced intuition and instinct.”
“I have clarity about which direction I need to go.”
You now have clear perception about what’s really important to you and 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!
