Self-care for Grief, illness and Loss

A Soul Oriented Solutions Formula: Self-care for Grief ~

Self-care for GriefMany people are experiencing deep levels of grief and mourning over events happening both near and far. Feelings of anxiousness, distress and even PTSD can come on suddenly and be very overwhelming. Is there anything that can bring some relief?

This brief self-care formula from RESOLVE uses affirmations and the Intuitive Learning Circles™ to quickly help you when you are:

  • Grieving
  • Recovering from abuse – past or present
  • Dealing with a serious or long-term illness
  • Preparing for surgery
  • Coming to terms with tragedy, loss or death.

Here’s how self-care for grief works:

Begin by allowing this Reiki Chakra Key to provide chakra healing to your heart center. It can help to put both feet flat on the floor and place your hands on your heart with this first symbol. Simply gaze softly at the images while you contemplate the positive affirmations that go with them for several minutes. Relax and breathe. Here’s some suggestions:

“I am present and calm.”

Heart Chakra - Self-care for GriefStrong emotions or insights may come up. The images may move, rotate, vibrate or change color. Don’t worry. That happens sometimes. It just means they are working to help you feel better. Once the energy calms down a bit, you can move on to the remaining Circles with each of their affirmations to complete the process.

You might want to journal some of your thoughts. If you do, get out some paper and something to write with.

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.

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


Step One: Asking for Help

Breathe in deeply, all the way to your belly while you look at this Circle and then exhale. Breathe in through your nose, if you can. Do that several times.

If you could ask for something that would help you feel better, what would that be?

 

Step Two – Support

Imagine that you can bring healing and release into all parts of your body, mind and spirit while you continue to breathe and gaze softly at this next symbol.

Step Three ~ Peace

What do you think is the main difficulty or burden you’re dealing with right now?
Are you ready to let go of that burden and find a solution? 
If not, why not?

 

Step Four – Release

Where are you holding tension?

You can release the tension around anything that’s bothering you right now. Your shoulders are dropped. Your jaw is relaxed. Keep melting the tension until it’s all gone.

 

Step Five- Remove Your Burdens

Imagine that you can send all of those burdens to where ever they need to go to resolve themselves. Feel the heaviness lifting up and off of you.

You have done the best that you can under the circumstances.

 

Step Six – Rebalance

Breathe again.
Feel a calmness coming over you.
You feel calmer and calmer with every breath.

 

Step Seven – Cleansing

Send away any illness or pain that you’re experiencing. Send it to the Sun or wherever it needs to go to heal.

 

Step Eight – Faith

Fill yourself with strength and the knowledge that you are loved. Let yourself rest now.

You might feel tired or sad. That’s okay. It means that you’re feeling safe enough to really let go and rest.

Some people have gotten a lot of extra support out of going through this self-care for grief exercise every day for twenty-one days. It helps to retrain your mind to think more positively and keep you on track toward your full recovery.

Let’s start with a couple of quick explanations of happiness and unhappiness that we’re going to use as underlying principles to the Circles ~

1) Happiness is a heart centered state of being where a person is internally creating their experience and more likely to attract their needs in an open, natural way. As they experience happiness, they are self-confident and living the concept that “what you put out comes back to you.” They take responsibility for their personal growth and know that their mindset is important in maintaining their happiness.


 

Blockages to Happiness2) Unhappiness is a state of being where a person is focused on external conditions and the delusion of powerlessness. They look for answers outside of themselves. It’s important to note that unhappiness can be transformed into happiness through courage and awareness that a different choice can be made at any time.


Miracles - Channels of Spirit3) “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.”

~ from Learning in the New Paradigm by Rheanni Lightwater

The Cornerstones of Manifest Happiness Circles in the New Paradigm are:

  • Creating prosperity through sustainable cooperation and respectful relationships.
  • Operating out of inner guidance from the Soul rather than the ego.
  • Developing courage and resolve to find peaceful solutions to our current dilemmas.
  • Balancing masculine and feminine energies to create wholeness.
  • Cultivating personal responsibility by understanding “what I put out is what comes back to me” (the Law of Karma).
  • Seeking out healthy nourishment and balance for the body, mind and spirit.
  • Realizing joyful living through reciprocity, self-care and self-love.
  • Actualizing freedom from societal and familial baggage.

The Problem

Getting to the Bottom of your Prosperity Issues.

An example from our recent past will help to paint a picture of what happens when one has lost touch with one of our cornerstones – their prosperity. Let’s say you are living in Pittsburgh in the 50’s and 60’s. You’ve grown up in an environment that is predominately steel mills and manufacturing. The businesses, buildings and social structures have been conceived and built to fulfill the purpose of producing economic dependence upon the steel industry. You are a steel mill worker. Very likely your family has worked in the mills for generations. Every activity, thought and inner motivation has been built upon that experience. Your politics and the conversations you have revolve around it. Your economic security depends upon it. An electro-magnetic energy field has been erected by the collective energy of the residents of Pittsburgh. In response, your personal energy structure has adapted to and perpetuates that input. Now you are in the 70’s and 80’s and the bottom falls out of the steel industry. What do you do? Your own personal energy structure is still operating under “I am a steel mill worker,” but there is no longer any support for that identity.

The Four Stages of Societal Change

1.) Your initial reaction is shock and fear. It’s like the whole world is crumbling down around you.

2.) The next stage is denial. “This is not really happening, maybe if I go down the street and apply at the other mills, I’ll get a job there.”

3.) Once it really sinks in that there are no more jobs in town, disillusionment and depression set in.

4.) If little or nothing is done to alleviate the situation, violence and desperation break out, creating a gridlock to positive change.

Many people are now experiencing one of these four stages due to political, societal and environmental changes taking place in our world today. The solution is to open yourself up to changing who you think you are and building a new identity and personal energy structure that supports who you want to be now.

The Solution

This is where the Manifest Happiness Power Circles come in. The classes and Transformation Games are designed to help you transmute, transform and transcend your experience of lack and limitation into an opening to re-invent yourself through the inner guidance of your Soul.

If you want to be prosperous in the truest sense, you will want to examine who you think you are and clear out any thoughts, emotions or assumptions that prevent you from moving forward into the person you’d like to become. It’s also a good idea to modify attitudes and perceptions that keep you chained to the past, struggling to cope with all the changes going on around you.

What the EXPERTS are saying:

“What I love about Rheanni’s approach is its simplicity. I don’t need to go to therapy for years or rehash trauma from the past to create positive change in my life.

They bring instant stress relief with long-term healing impact.”  ~ Pi Luna – Artist & Business Coach for Creatives

“This process is like coming up from underwater and taking a fresh breath.” ~ Cornelia Sachs, Eutony Movement Practitioner

Whoever uses this work will find it beneficial for their growth in unfolding more of who they are. Old emotions come up as well as memories that need new perspectives, which the exercises handle beautifully.  In a way, they are washed away and lifted to higher grounds, leaving behind gifts of healing and new beginnings.” ~ D.G.Villena-Mata, Ph.D., Fellow and Diplomate in Traumatic Stress

Untangling Family Relationship Issues

Mind Exercise: Clearing Emotional Entanglements from Family Relationship Issues

Family Relationship IssuesEmotional entanglements established early in life out of family relationship issues can be very stubborn and you may feel powerless.

Sometimes there’s so much going on the dynamics of a person’s childhood, it seems impossible to let go of all the conditioning and allow something different to happen in adult life. 

There is a way through to free yourself and get some relief using the Intuitive Learning Circles™ and positive affirmations with your imagination.


Step One: Think about the relationship issues in your life that just don’t ever seem to get better. They could be relationships in love, friendship, business, or just about anything! Use this Circle to help you visualize the nature of the issues from a larger perspective.

How would you describe your experience? You might want to quickly journal your answer so that you can express it later through writing, art, music, movement or sharing your story with others.

 

Step Two: When dealing with emotional pain, breathing always helps. Gaze softly at the Circle and breathe in on the count of three. One…two…three.
Exhale to the count of six. One…two…three…four…five…six.
Do this as many times as you like. Breathing in and letting go. 

Imagine that the pain around the relationship issues you’re dealing with is like a huge iceberg. Visualize it melting, moving and breaking apart until your energy relaxes. Feel free to move at any time in any way to help you embody your experience. Continue until you feel a palpable release of tension.

Use this Circle to help you clear away any debris or garbage that’s leftover once the ice has melted. You can imagine a broom just sweeping it all away to the Sun!

 

Step Three: In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, the second level needs are safety oriented. They include protection from the elements, security, order, law, stability and freedom from fear. Family relationship issues often involve these needs. Second level needs are primarily processed through the 2nd Chakra (located approximately 2 – 3 inches down from your navel).

Gaze softly at the Second Chakra Key below for a minute or so. Then ask yourself: “Are these relationship issues having a negative affect on my safety and security needs? Are they causing a problem in any of my current relationships? Is my Second Chakra holding some of that energy?” 

Am I having difficulty accessing information, connection or trust? Do I need chakra healing here? if so, what would help me to bring my 2nd Chakra in balance?

 

Step Four: Now we’re going to clear some emotional entanglements around this situation. Meditate on the Circle below and imagine that you’re on your path, looking to create satisfying relationships, yet for some reason, you can’t see your way. Perhaps the path is blank, crowded or dark or has you feeling anxious and unsafe. Maybe it’s filled with junk, obstructions or debris. How frustrating it is to feel like this when you would really like to have things be different for you now!

Ask yourself, “How can I clear this path?” Gather up unconscious information.

 

 

The Essential HumanStep Five: Let’s suppose that by going through the following sequence of symbols from The Essential Human, you’ll be able clear up the path and see what you need to do to help yourself.

 

Look at this symbol for a few moments and imagine that you’re untangling a messy string of lights that would light up your way. Stay with it until the lights are all straightened out and ready to be hung.

 

 

Imagine that you’re in a playground with dozens of little children fighting and bullying each other. As you look at this symbol, imagine that you’re ringing a bell or blowing a horn. As if awakened from a nightmare, the children change their demeanor. Some start to play quietly with each other. Some leave entirely and some of them come up to you and begin playing nicely.

 

Imagine that you’re now at a garden party where lots of couples are dancing.  Suddenly, the center of the garden is filled with a pile of wriggling snakes, ruining everyone’s time! Use the symbol and ring the bell again. You can see the snakes disappearing into thin air. If there are any holes, see them close completely. Life has returned to the party!

 

Now imagine that this symbol represents the denial or resistance around your family’s relationship issues.  Use this affirmation to clear up the resistance:

“I close the door on all false information. I now perceive the truth about me.”

 

Look at the Circle and ask your heart, “Am I present and in my own space? Or am I somewhere else?

Consciously decide to be present, in your own body, your own space, using your own energy.

 

Look at this Circle and ask yourself, “Am I accessing my own karma or someone else’s to create relationships? Has someone dumped their karma on me? Is someone accessing my karma without my permission?”

Affirm to yourself: “I decide to use only my karma to create my relationships. I naturally deflect other people’s karma and return it to them. I am in charge of how my karma is used.”

“Since I don’t know how this suffering came to be, I forgive all transgressions.”

 

Step Six: Now that you’ve cleared some major entanglements, bring your senses into balance. Some may be turned up too high or some too low. 

“I see things as they really are.”

Imagine the pathway for creating your satisfying relationships again. How has it changed? Is it clearer? Does it feel better? More real?

 

Step Seven: Put it all together now. What do you need to do differently in your life to create the relationships you really want?

 

Check in with your Second Chakra again for a minute or so. Ask yourself: “Is the original relationship issue still having a negative affect on my safety and security needs? Is my Second Chakra holding energy from that situation now?”

Does my chakra need balancing now? Do I need Epigenetic Healing from Divine Nature Activated? What else might help me?

Make an agreement with yourself to follow through on the information you’ve gained through this exercise. Then close the door on all pathways that might lead you back to suffering.

“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

 

Congratulations! You have made some progress with emotional healing and entanglements from your family relationships. The next time you encounter the issue, notice if the dynamics have changed for you.
