Do you ever have the feeling that you’re about to say or do something that you’ll regret? If you could do the right thing, what would it be?
In any kind of close relationship, there’s often a false perception that the other person somehow understands what our motivations are – that they know what we really mean, even if we’re angry. Perhaps because we feel so close to them, we make a lot of assumptions. That can be a very dangerous game!
Help Me Do The Right Thing!
Note: This exercise is associated with the I Ching Hexagrams #6 CONFLICT and #43 RESOLUTION:
You can help yourself find emotional healing by taking this quick relationship quiz. The person you’re struggling with may not know how to interact with you because of mixed messages or unresolved issues from your past. By taking the time to go within and find out what part you’re playing in the game, you can understand what’s motivating you so you can do the right thing to resolve the situation. Remember, actions speak louder than words!
The way to play this game is to relax and breathe deeply while you meditate on the questions and suggestions that accompany the Circles. This first one will help you to slow down and let yourself focus on one thing at a time.
“I slow down and relax.”
Once you’re relaxed, go through the rest of the quiz in the same way – asking yourself the questions while you gaze softly at the accompanying Circle. Take your time, the answers might not come right away. The Circles are helping your mind to clear away mental and emotional clutter.
“What do I want to do?”
“Have I decided for some reason that it’s not possible? Is that true?”
“What things have I been saying to myself or others about this situation? Is that really true? What do I really mean?”
“How am I getting thrown off?”
“What am I afraid will happen?”
Relax for a few minutes and let the Circle help you calm down.
“What do I need to do for this to change for the better?”
“Am I willing to do what would be required for this to change in a positive, meaningful way?”
If you are willing, ask for help from your Soul resources or angelic guidance.
If you’re not, this is a good opportunity to explore what’s really motivating you.
Imagine that you can release any old agreements, assumptions or grudges that are keeping this CONFLICT going. Visualize them like contracts, burning up into nothingness.
Make a new agreement to take good care of yourself by using your words wisely.
It’s time to bring RESOLUTION to the destructive mental and emotional patterns that feed the CONFLICT. Use this symbol to dissolve destructive blueprints that are causing you harm. Visualize them dissolving like dark clouds into a pure, blue sky.
Next, seal and heal any leaks or attachments that may lead you back into CONFLICT.
“All holes are sealed and healed. I follow the direction of healthy protection.”
Finally, make a RESOLUTION to overcome your difficulties by making progress in positive directions. Take your time and gently formulate new ideas and positive affirmations about how you might do the right thing in a way that will really benefit you.
It isn’t always easy to do the right thing in relationships, yet if you’re willing to make a change for the better – anything is possible!

Call for your free, initial consultation with Rheanni: 505-271-4612 or email email@example.com.
What interested beginning Reiki students should know…
Reiki is not taught in the way other healing techniques are, it’s transferred to the student by the Reiki Master during an attunement/initiation process. We believe that this process must be done in person and under the correct circumstances for the attunement to be passed to the student successfully. Each Reiki practitioner and Reiki Master will attract to him/her those people of like vibration. Therefore, it’s recommended that you meet with and trust whomever you’ve chosen to attune you. All attunements from Soul Resources LLC are done in person.
The attunement process opens your crown, heart and palm chakras to the life force healing energy available, thus creating a link between you and the Reiki Source. In our practice, that link is your Higher Self.
The Reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience, which may assist in personal growth and transformation. Your highest good is the priority.
A true Reiki attunement will remain with you for life, whether you consciously use it or not. Your intuition and spiritual energies may become more focused. Be aware: an attunement may induce a cleansing process of body and mind.
USUI REIKI, GRAIL REIKI and REIKI – DO SOUTH AFRICA
Reiki is dynamic and constantly evolving. The Japanese word “DO” means a “way” or lifestyle and we believe that Reiki is a life-style. This lifestyle incorporates the Reiki Ideals of Dr. Usui and the individual’s need for their own spiritual growth.
The Reiki ideals are as follows:
Higher sources as well as one’s own Higher Self guide Reiki energy. Tune into this source and trust your intuition.
As we work on healing ourselves, we help to heal others and our planet, this is true empowerment.
Note: All completed levels include a Certificate of Completion. Because of the personal nature of this kind of work, a brief, initial consultation is required to make certain that the intuition training you’ve selected is appropriate for you. Initial consultations are free and can be conducted over the phone, Zoom or in person. Call 505-271-4612 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Evaluate How You’re Nourishing Yourself in the New Paradigm ~
Kuan 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. Today, her advice about NOURISHING comes 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 with you through meditation, affirmations and visualization.
MIND BODY INTEGRATION
For best results playing a Transformation Game, look at each Circle both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.
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 # 27 – Nourishing
Did you know that your body knows a lot about what it needs and how well you’re nourishing yourself?
Your second chakra is deeply connected to your emotions, your digestion and immunity. It has a lot of information about how you’re NOURISHING yourself on these levels and what you could do to improve – as long as you’re present and willing to pay attention! It’s just that for some reason, the information is being blocked from your conscious awareness and you can’t hear what your body is trying to tell you. Take a moment and relax with this Reiki Chakra Key for your Second Chakra to help you tune in and listen. Use the affirmation if it helps or come up with one of your own.
“I allow free flowing energy in my Second Chakra.”
“I tune into how I am taking care of myself.”
There are several ways that the Second Chakra can get blocked. One is inappropriate nourishment. Perhaps you’re eating the wrong foods for you at this time or you’re over-exposed to toxic environments, chemicals or even people!
You might also be over indulging in something that is generally good for you when taken in moderate amounts.
To better determine if something like that is happening with you, experiment with one of our Intuitive Learning Circles™ for slowing down and focusing on what’s really important.
“I slow down and focus on what I need.”
Evaluate How You Are Nourishing Yourself.
Now that you’re present and focused, you can get some accurate information about how to nourish yourself. If you follow the directions, you can get all kinds of 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 a few questions. Use a scale of one to ten to evaluate what’s going on (one being lousy and ten being great!). Be sure to listen to your body and be receptive to the answers that come.
Use a scale of “One “to “Ten”:
How am I nourishing myself nutritionally? Am I taking in too much of something? Is there something I’m not getting enough of?
How about emotionally?
What about nourishing my spiritual Self?
Am I giving myself adequate mental nourishment?
How well am I taking care of my body’s needs for exercise, rest, fresh air?
Am I missing anything?
What could I really use?
Congratulations! In this first section we wanted to clear things up enough for you to get a general picture of how you’re nourishing yourself. In the next section we’re going to take a look at how some of your projects are nourishing you!
Nourishing Yourself with Healthy, Supportive Projects
Think about a project you’re currently involved in that concerns you. Perhaps there’s a great deal of emotional drama involved with it or the environment may be troubling for you in some way. See if this Circle can help you gather up your impressions about the situation and bring your concerns into a clearer awareness.
What emotions do you pick up? What do you notice about the environment?
Is there anything else that might interfere with how well you are nourishing yourself?
Is there anything you’re making up about yourself or the situation that needs to change?
Imagine that this symbol for Dissolving Destructive Blueprints can help you identify and dissolve any toxic imprints or patterns that may be causing harm. You might see them as a dark cloud dissolving into the pure light of the Sun.
Now it’s time to close the door on all that toxicity and move in the direction of nourishing yourself appropriately.
“I close the door on any drain or strain on my time, space, attention or energy.”
Congratulations! You’ve just set the stage for your Second chakra to let go of harmful energies and emotions and begin moving in the direction of NOURISHING yourself appropriately. Be sure to take time to rest and relax. Take a walk or get out into nature if you can!

This Mind Exercise is about how to access common sense.
Let’s start with some words about common sense* that I like to remember:
“Common Sense is good sense and judgement based on verifiable experience or repeated observation of the facts, not just because someone said so. When someone says, “something is so, because I say it is,” that is not common sense.
When a person’s common sense is out of balance,they’re more interested in looking good than anything else. They have poor boundaries and are more concerned about fitting in than they are with facts. The thought process is externally driven (peer pressure), not internally developed and checked against the facts.
If a person accepts a judgement as truth from a second or third party without any personal verification, it’s actually an assumed agreement or conditioning. Learning without verification can be very dangerous. An example of this would be prejudice against someone you have never met. Someone told you this person, group or activity is untrustworthy. It may be true or it may not. Without verifiable evidence, common sense is lacking.
What can be done about common sense that’s out of balance?
A good place to start is to access your senses. Everyone has a “blind spot.” For some reason, we’ve been conditioned to turn a blind eye to certain things. See if you can remedy some of that by gazing softly at this Reiki Chakra Key, 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.”
“I use them to become aware of helpful resources, solutions and opportunities.”
“I access common sense.”
Next, release your agreement with any unverifiable prejudices. These may have been planted deeply in your unconscious mind by your family, religion and society, even your dearest friends. Oh, and most certainly the media!
Use this Intuitive Learning Circle™ to help you find unconscious prejudices in your mind and uproot them:
“I unearth unverified assumptions, prejudices or conditioning that prevent me from having good, common sense.”
“I uproot the resistance to verify what I’ve been conditioned to believe.”
“I uproot the belief that I have to agree with what I’m told in order to fit in.”
What else would you like to uproot?
To teach genuine common sense, a good teacher shows by example or demonstration. True common sense can prevent fascism, slavery, abuse and instills personal integrity, plus things just work better when they make sense.“
*from Learning in the New Paradigm by Rheanni Lightwater:Mind Exercises to realign different aspects of your learning abilities to focus on “balance” or “joy”, rather than “perfection.”
To have your own experience with how to access common sense, let’s go through this simple series of Intuitive Learning Circles™. They’ve been put together to help you relax, contemplate the nature of common sense and integrate the information.
All you have to do is read the instructions and then follow through on the directions while you gaze softly at each Circle.
An important note ~
The 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.
How to Access Common Sense
Step One: Gaining insight through common sense works with having good intuition. Allow the Reiki Chakra Key below to open and balance your Third Eye energy center. The affirmations will focus your intention. Use this affirmation to help you:
“I access good common sense. I free my mind to focus on what makes the most sense in this situation – based on verifiable evidence.”
Step Two: Slow down. Both intuition and common sense are more accessible when you’re not in a hurry or trying to do too many things.
“I slow down and pay attention to what’s happening now.”
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 might sense a blockage or your mind may go blank. That’s okay. Let this Circle soften your thoughts. Allow them to melt, move and dissolve away.
Once the blockage has cleared a bit, what would you like to do?
Feel free to move around or take a walk to get in some steps. Using the body helps your mind to integrate new ideas!
Step Four: Let your senses get balanced. Some may be turned up too high and some too low. You can imagine them like a ring of lights orbiting around your waist, casting light and awareness on the world around you.
Adjust them like a radio dial until the level feels just right.
Be sure that your lights are focused on sensing joy – not on what someone else wants you to pay attention to!
Step Five: Surround those lights with a ring of protection and strength.
“I am safe and protected. I have the courage to change my perspective.”
Step Six: Resonate with the power of your Soul to separate yourself from lies, confusion and manipulations.
Consciously “unplug” from lies and manipulations at your solar plexus and then plug into truth.
Be sure to do that while looking at this Circle both crossed and uncrossed!
Step Seven: In this quieter, clearer mind space, think of a decision you are unclear about and would like to apply some common sense to – something that isn’t making sense to you right now.
Or you can ask: “What makes sense to do next?” If you are unclear, this would be a perfect situation to experiment with.
Step Eight: Continue your inquiry, “How can I put it all together so that it makes sense?” Bring your thoughts in toward the center, blank space. This could take some time. Listen for the answer. What is your inner guidance?
Intuition combined with common sense is often simpler and more straightforward than most people are comfortable with. Let go of the three C’s – complication, convolution and conspiracy. Be patient and let your mind sift through the possibilities.
Step Nine: Balance your senses again and ask yourself:
“What makes the most sense?”
Once you get a heartfelt answer, Congratulations! Be sure to write down what you came up with. The critical mind often doesn’t like to remember the quieter, gentler voice of intuition.
The following extra-intuitive activities aren’t required, but they can help you excel in creating the very best of your talents, interests and passions…
Improving Brain Chemistry for Better Common Sense
We are more likely to make good sense of things when our brains have a balanced chemistry. Chakra healing can help. Let’s see what happens when we allow the chakras of important parts of our brains to let go of toxic chemicals that might be impairing our thinking and how we access common sense.
Gaze softly at the Essential Chakra Key with this intention:
“Accurate messages are transferred between my brain and spinal cord.”
Next, gaze at this Chakra Key with the intention:
“My left and right brain communicate accurately with each other.”
Sometimes we have “the sense knocked out of us” physically. Trauma like that can affect all kinds of thought processes.
“My focus, balance and stability are in place.”
Use this Circle to help you appropriately reconnect any chakras that have disconnected due to accident, injury or violence.
“My communication lines are connected.”
“I make sense of things.”
“Reliable communication has resumed throughout my nervous system.”
Some parts of your brain can anticipate pain and overreact with highly charged emotional responses. Allow them to gently release and let go with this intention:
“I am safe and calm. All is well.”
Go back to Step Seven at the beginning of this exercise and review the decision you were considering.
“What makes good sense to do next?”
Imagine that you can release any negative karmic patterns you may have around peer pressure or needing to look good. Send any chaos or confusion up to the Sun.
Next, access your beneficial karma for having good common sense. Gather your good deeds in the center, blank area of this Circle.
“I access my beneficial karma for actualizing good and balanced common sense.”
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.”
“I ground common sense in the New Paradigm.”
“How does it feel to access good common sense, based on verifiable experience or repeated observation of the facts?”
You can thank yourself for taking the time today to learn how to access common sense and good judgement – a gift that will make your life a whole lot better!
Bring the energy of gratitude and appreciation in towards you in 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.”
Be sure to rest now and do something nice for yourself!

How to Use Feng Shui For Your Home with the I Ching to Assess Your Continuing Happiness in 2019 ~
Feng shui for your home is very useful anytime you’re going through significant changes. That includes changes of the season and the New Year!
In fact, in order to avoid STAGNATION, there’s an old feng shui recommendation that twelve objects be moved or rearranged in some way at the change of every season or during other times of significant change.
The I Ching or Book of Change works beautifully with Feng Shui because it follows and predicts movements and tendencies in the cosmos using a series of sixty-four hexagrams or energy flows. When feng shui for your home can go with the flow of life, stagnation and other energy problems can be avoided, which helps everything work better!
For example, if your home or life is in a general state of disrepair, feng shui can help you make reforms so that your environment can support you better as it suggests in this Hexagram:
“The situation will develop new energy and inspiration once the problems are removed.” Hexagram #18 REPAIR
The process of clearing and setting up the energy of your home can also help you to optimize your chances for success in all areas of your life by storing reservoirs of positive energy:
“…you have built up a strong reserve of potential energy. Good fortune.” Hexagram #26 POTENTIAL ENERGY
However, some people don’t know that feng shui can also help you to correct instability and “take apart” destructive patterns that are causing you and your family harm. Those patterns may have been a part of the family dynamic for a very long time.
“Order can be brought to chaotic situations, Because you are now unusually familiar with the elements involved in the object of your inquiry, you can evaluate and arrange them in whatever way necessary to achieve your aim.” ~ Hexagram #64 BEFORE THE END
Once the imbalances are corrected in your environment, personal growth happens more easily and effectively. Your sense of timing improves, chaos is reduced and changes in life direction are supported. A private consultation is often the best, however, there are some things that you can do on your own. To help you, Kuan Yin has inspired this short Transformation Game…
Feng Shui for Your Home:
Going through this process can help you evaluate whether or not your home is providing a stable and healthy environment and give you some possible remedies to support your happiness.
Simply gaze softly at the symbols while you consider the questions that accompany each of them. Doing so will help you to uncover hidden information about how your prosperity or sense of “home” is being impaired (it will also work in your office).
Step One – Relax and Tune In:
Begin by getting in the correct mindset to receive intuitive information. Gaze softly at this symbol while you repeat the following affirmation for a minute or two:
“I ask my intuition to reveal hidden information about imbalances or interferences in my home that are causing me or my family harm.”
They say that intuition is easier when all of the senses are balanced. So relax with this next Circle and adjust the volume on your senses – some may be turned up too high and some too low. You can bring them into balance by adjusting the levels.
Step Two – Review the Intention for Your Home:
“The opportunity to change a situation from STAGNATION to progress is at hand. It will not happen of its own accord. A strong and continuing sense of purpose is necessary to achieve and maintain the greatest possible heights of success.” ~ Hexagram #12 STAGNATION
[You might want to get a notepad to write on and see if you can find at least twelve objects that you can move, rearrange or remove as you go through the rest of this game.]
Use this Circle to slow down some more and become aware of your actual, physical home environment. On your pad of paper, see if you can formulate a clear intention for what you would like your home to do for you at this time in your life.
Now, briefly review each room and remind yourself about what’s really important about the function of each room. What happens there and what purpose does that room serve for you and/or the family? You might also want to think about how a change in the season might affect each room.
If your mind goes blank, or you’re having trouble accessing clear intuition, use this Circle to melt away any disharmony or resistance. It can help to imagine the room softening and moving around. Wait until your vision stabilizes.
Step Three – Get Specific:
Once you’ve briefly gone through each room and feel ready, use the wisdom from this I Ching Hexagram to move on to the questions below that will help you identify more specifics:
“Order can be brought to chaotic situations, Because you are now unusually familiar with the elements involved in the object of your inquiry, you can evaluate and arrange them in whatever way necessary to achieve your aim.” ~ Hexagram #64 BEFORE THE END
Question #1 Trust your initial response to the questions ~
“Are there pockets of negativity or STAGNATION collecting in my home?”
“If so, can I identify where they are located? Do I know what needs to be done to remedy them?”
If no, continue to Question #2.
“Am I experiencing poor communication or lack of co-operation where I live?”
“If so, can I identify the source of where it’s coming from? Can I get an idea of what changes are needed?”
“Are there any objects or elements out of balance that are causing mental, emotional, financial or physical difficulties?”
“If so, can I identify how they can be brought into balance?”
“Does something need to be moved, reorganized or completely removed?”
“Could I benefit from being more grounded and present in my own home?”
“If so, can I identify the source of what the problem is?”
“Does something need to be moved, reorganized or completely removed to help me be more grounded?”
“Is there any interference with productivity?”
“If so, can I identify something that needs to be moved, reorganized or completely removed in order to help me be more productive?”
“Is my health or prosperity struggling because of disharmony in my environment?”
Does something need to be moved, reorganized or completely removed to restore harmony?”
“Is there anything I need to know about my environment that is preventing me from heading in the right direction to accomplish my goals? Can I get a sense of what that is?”
“Is there anything I can add to enhance the love and light available in my home?”
“A change is occurring, whether in you own objectives or in the situation around you… By adapting to the realities around you at this time, you will find peace of mind and success.” ~ Hexagram #17 REPAIR
“Is my environment safe and have adequate protection? Is there anything I need to do to be certain that it’s free from harmful or interfering energies?”
You can use this Circle to review the feng shui for your home to see if you have come up with at least twelve items that can be moved, removed, or added to help accommodate the changes that you are currently experiencing.
Congratulations! You now have a lot more information about how feng shui for your home or office can be helpful in achieving your goals.

Note: This exercise is associated with the I Ching Hexagram #51 SHOCKING: “The shocks will continue and you will be faced with constant difficulties. You can survive the times if you actively change with the changes, thus remaining centered internally and externally.” ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L Wing
Any person involved in a traumatic event could experience disorientation, numbness, mental confusion or fragmentation. They might even disconnect and leave their body. This includes people who are witness to traumatic experiences in some way. These are all ways that the unconscious mind protects us during a traumatic event.
Sometimes people who’ve experienced a shocking event will tell you that they’re fine and not to worry about them. That’s because one of the main symptoms of being in shock is not being aware of being in shock. Why is that? During a shock, the mind goes blank as a form of protection.
Contrary to popular opinion, having a shock response is not a sign of spiritual weakness. It is a physiological event. Nevertheless, if the person doesn’t get a chance to get grounded in their body again – or if they’re not able to – serious problems may develop. Blocked energy and a constant state of fight or flight takes its toll over time. Statements like: “I can’t think straight,” “my life was shattered” or “I feel disconnected” describe the experience of shock.
If any of the above seems familiar, you can go through this mind exercise step by step to help you access your own innate healing abilities and bring yourself back into balance.
Simply follow the directions and see if you can free up some of the confusion and conflict that comes from shock.
Mind Body Integration
For best results, look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.
Resolving Shock and Confusion
Take several deep breaths and relax while you look at this Circle that releases shock and inner conflict.
Imagine you can use it to focus in on a conflict or rigid thought that’s blocking your way. If your mind is blank, focus on how “blank” it is. You may get a conscious image or message, or you may not.
Once you have a sense that your mind has found the blockage, imagine you can send a beam of light directly to it. Allow your laser beam to break up the fixation until it’s gone.
Check for other blockages or conflicts that you can do the same with.
The next step is to bring your senses into balance so that you can see and hear things without the distortion that often accompanies shock.
As you breathe deeply, let this Circle help you to adjust the volume and pitch of your senses to just the right level for you.
Soon you will be able to hear that “calm, gentle voice” inside that reminds you about what matters the most to you:
“I see things as they really are. My senses are balanced.”
“I reconnect with what matters the most.”
If your gut feels tight or uncomfortable, use this Circle to help you relax in your solar plexus and get back into balance there.
“It’s safe. I can feel safe again.”
Sometimes a person who’s coming out of shock will be disoriented and feel a bit “out of their body.” In case that’s happening with you, take a few minutes to consciously bring yourself back into your body.
“I am at home in my center. I am inside myself.”
Close your hands into fists and then stretch them out wide several times. Wiggle your toes around. Notice the time and where you are. These actions all help whenever you’re resolving shock.
The next thing is to make sure you’re grounded. Without proper grounding, you could be flying all over the place, wasting your time and not getting anything constructive done. That’s the last thing you want right now!
Let this Circle for grounding help you. Place both feet on the ground and your hands on each knee while you use these affirmations:
“I uproot whatever is confusing me.”
“I decide to get grounded. The Earth supports me.”
Oftentimes, resolving shock and confusion requires a change in priorities. There may be certain plans, ideas or habitual patterns that make you feel trapped or confused. You can use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to help you identify them and dissolve whatever is confusing you.
Simply imagine that the negative patterns in your mind are like dark clouds or a jumbled maze of lines, dead ends and cages.
Once you have the image, bring the pure light of the Sun in and dissolve the maze completely.
The next step is to seal and heal any holes, leaks or openings in your energy field. These openings may lead to danger or allow harmful energies to attach to you.
As you gaze at the Circle, imagine harmful leaks and openings are closing as if they were never there.
“All holes are healed and sealed.”
“I follow the protection of healthy direction.”
To finish this exercise, let your heart recover. This Circle will help you to balance your heart energy and clear away any residual heaviness. Breathe deeply and take your time.
“I feel the heaviness lifting up out of my heart.”
“I let it go and send it to the Sun where it can be transformed.”
“I choose to be happy and healthy.”
“I resolve the conflicts and confusion.”
“I live from the heart.”
Resolving Shock: Continuing Your Journey ~
This has been one of seven self-care formulas and mind exercises from RESOLVE, a handbook for staying true and following through on your intentions.
The purpose of RESOLVE is to give you additional resources to turn to when you are going through difficult times and need to stay strong. You are encouraged to share this information with others whom you feel might benefit from it.
Cultivating a daily self-care practice prevents burnout and crisis fatigue, even highly sensitive people. Each exercise can be used “on the go” to help you bridge the gap between limited, fear-based reactions and the life you’ve resolved to create.

How to Achieve Your Goals for Business Using Office Feng Shui ~
As your business changes and grows, it’s important to keep some fundamental principles about office Feng Shui in mind so that your goals for success are properly supported.
In this article I’m going to share several basic issues and remedies I often use when working with clients who want to know how to set up their office or studio space for success. Then, just for some added fun and insight, we’ll also use some Intuitive Learning Circles™to help you zero in on what your intuition says about the space you work in!
Principle #1: Productivity
A smart business owner or professional pays close attention to their office or workplace environment and uses proper input to increase productivity.
What are some of the things to think about? What would a Feng Shui expert ask you? Certainly, a reliable practitioner would want to find out if something about your office is keeping you from doing your best. It’s easy to get distracted by non-essential details. You can clarify that for yourself a bit by using the Mind Exercise below.
Take a break from your busy day, slow down and see your business environment as it is right now.
This Intuitive Learning Circle™ from Gifts from the Rainforest will help you slow down, tune into your intuitive senses and clarify what’s going on. Simply gaze softly at the Circle for a few moments with a soft gaze. Relax and allow your mind to to get still.
Use these positive affirmations while you take a few breaths:
“I slow down. I choose to be calm and centered.”
It often helps to imagine that everything is moving in slow motion. Once your mind has stopped chattering, you’ll be able to focus on your business priorities with greater accuracy.
“I know what my primary business goals are.”
Now, turn your attention to your actual, physical working environment as it is right now:
What is your overall impression?
Do you feel productive there? Do you feel comfortable?
Does anything distract you?
If so, make a note of whatever distracts you and we’ll come back to it later.
Principle #2 Grounding
A smart business owner makes sure that they feel grounded in their working environment.
If the space is not grounded, your success is being severely compromised. It’s wise to rectify this situation as soon as possible.
Here is another Intuitive Learning Circle™ that’s about being grounded. Use it in the same way you used the previous Circle, except this time, make sure both feet are on the ground. Remember to relax and gaze at the Circle with a soft focus!
“I am well grounded in the intentions I have for my business.”
Now, ask yourself another set of questions: “Is this room grounded? Am I able to think clearly in my environment?
Do I easily get overwhelmed?”
If you’re having a problem here, it’s a really good idea to get the room grounded. You can either get professional help or you could try standing or sitting in the middle of the space and use this affirmation while you gaze quietly at the Circle above. “I am grounded in this space.”
I also use obsidian to keep spaces grounded here in the Southwest area of the United States. Find a good size rock and place it somewhere unobtrusive as close to the center of the room as is practical.
You may have you own favorite techniques for getting grounded. Go ahead and try them. You can confirm whether it’s worked or not by looking at the Grounding Circle above again and asking, “Is the space grounded now?”
A smart business owner makes sure that their environment supports their intention.
If you own a restaurant, you’ll want it to have an atmosphere that suits the style of eating establishment you have in mind. The needs of a fast food deli, for instance, would be quite different from a place intended for fine dining. The same goes for every kind of business – if the atmosphere doesn’t “feel” right, it’s success will be compromised. That’s one reason why it’s usually a very good idea to keep your home office out of your bedroom. Usually sleeping well and business productivity don’t mix very well.
Sometimes it’s hard to know whether you’re on track, so here is another Intuitive Learning Circle™ to help you tune into the overall “feel” of your working environment.
As you look at this Circle, imagine your space again in your mind’s eye, then ask yourself these questions:
“Am I feeling nurtured here? Do I feel stressed here? If so, when?”
“What is distracting me from productive activities that are in the best interest of my business success?”
Remember if there’s anything about your office feng shui that’s distracting you. Use this Feng Shui Mandala for Receptivity to relax and help you formulate the changes that would help you. Ask yourself:
“What needs to change?”
Consider moving, clearing or re-organizing whatever is distracting you.
If you’re not feeling supported in your workplace, there could be many reasons. Again, calling in a professional is probably a good idea, however, if you enjoyed playing Office Feng Shui, you could find some remedies at our online store, Feng Shui Healing Arts.
