Do You Struggle with Learning Difficulties?
I’ve learned from experience that what others may call a disease or disability can become the foundation for brilliance, innovation and thinking outside the box.
I was raised in a time before ADD, ADHD or Dyslexia were considered diseases. In the fifties and early sixties, kids like me didn’t have learning difficulties, we were simply labelled slow, troublemakers or stupid. Judging from the amount of time I spent in the principle’s office, I was probably put into the troublemaker category pretty early on!
I remember when I was just beginning to learn how to write my name in cursive. I was trying to figure out which hand worked better making all those loops and curly-ques. While experimenting with my left hand, my second grade teacher came over to me and plucked the pencil right out of my hand. “You don’t want to use that hand,” she barked, “only bad people are left handed.”
I didn’t like that teacher much (for obvious reasons) so, at that moment I made a decision. I was going to be left-handed just to spite her! To this day, I am quasi-ambidextrous – I write with my left hand and do just about everything else with my right.
Similarly, I had learning difficulties getting my b’s and d’s right. They always seemed to get mixed up in my mind. I was restless in class because I had trouble concentrating and following what the teacher said was unbearable to me. In my early 20’s I even experienced stuttering because I literally couldn’t think of anything to say when in conversation. My mind would go completely blank, which was humiliating to me.
I know that most of the time, advice from teachers, family and friends was meant to help. They just couldn’t understand why I had learning difficulties or what to do about them. Unfortunately, having a mind that’s wired differently meant that techniques that worked well for others, didn’t work well for me.
Much later in life, I started to accept that doing things the way that other people did them just wasn’t going to work for me. I was eventually forced to accept that my learning difficulties had to do with early childhood trauma when a family crisis put me into a full-fledged case of PTSD.
It took me quite a while to get my bearings again, but once I decided that it was okay to be different, outside of the approval of my family, my life took a sharp turn for the better. I stopped beating myself up and started to embrace the things that came naturally to me. I went into bodywork and somatic education together with hypnotherapy and mind/body energy work. I began to experience a satisfaction and success that I had never known before. Finally, I was allowing the way I was wired to lead me into exciting new fields of discovery and innovation!
I set to work learning about and putting together techniques from many different disciplines to help me and my clients, many of whom were highly sensitive people with similar learning difficulties. I developed a whole system of tools for better focus and concentration using muscle testing. I’ve also found that they can help with emotional healing, reducing stress and providing a way to activate advanced states of intuition and creativity.
Today, I use those tools to guide me as I find solutions to my client’s problems whether it’s in their body, their thinking process or their environment. I call them the Intuitive Learning Circles™ and now I’m making them available to other people, like you – so that you can also experience the beauty and genius of thinking differently.

Understanding How the Second Chakra is Involved in Creating Internal Safety ~
The Second Chakra Is Deeply Connected to how well we Nurture and protect ourselves.
The Second Chakra is the energy plexus where emotions, digestion and immunity all come together. When it gets out of balance or entangled with toxic pollutants from all those sources, your physical, emotional and spiritual health can be impacted in a negative way.
Your 2nd chakra is located approximately 2-3 inches directly down from your navel.
When Creating Internal Safety, Keep in Mind ~
We Unconsciously Create Whatever We’ve Been Conditioned to Pay Attention To.
If you’re paying attention to negativity, what other people are doing or what you think they’re doing, you’re very liable to become depressed and develop a compromised immune system.
It’s common for empaths or other highly sensitive people to pay a lot of attention to other people in an effort to stay safe or get along. To develop healthy boundaries it helps to know that each of us has a unique vibration and “soul color” that allows us to vibrate with the Universe appropriately. Use the first Intuitive Learning Circle™ below to help you be sure that you’re tuning into your emotions and not someone elses!
“I know who I am. I distinguish my needs from the needs of others.”
You can help yourself even more if you consciously move your preferred karma into the center open space of the Karmic Seed Circle and pay attention to it instead of other people’s stuff!
“I set things right by letting go of other people’s karmic issues. I now focus on my own, beneficial karma to create safety and well-being for myself.”
Keep going by clarifying the difference between you and others:
“I am inside of my body. I pay attention to what is best for me.”
Now that you’re clearer about what’s your energy and what belongs to others, you are ready to program your Second Chakra for Creating Internal Safety for You!
Creating Internal Safety is based on SOS Mind Exercise #8: Setting Up a Safe Space
The environment in your second chakra is very important to your self-care and emotional healing. When it’s balanced and healthy, it transmits a vibrant orange energy that attracts belonging and support. It’s also your creative center, the place where you generate your personal mana or creative energy. If it gets stagnant or caught up in emotional entanglements, your physical, emotional and spiritual health could suffer. Instead of creating personal growth, you might get stuck in co-dependency or start creating toxic conditions for yourself without knowing why or what to do about it. If this sounds like something that you’ve been experiencing, you can do something about it.
In Creating Internal Safety, you’ll be utilizing your intuitive insight to implement very simple changes that can make a world of difference in how you’re creating internal safety in your personal space. You’ll discover that your intuition and unconscious mind are much more aware of whats going on than your conscious mind is!
Go through this mind exercise by reading each step and then gazing softly at the Circle that goes with it to gain insight about what creative changes you can make in your internal and/or external environment that will help you.
1. The goal of Creating Internal Safety is for you to get clarity about how well your personal space is supporting you and what you can do to make improvements. You might get insights about your body or your external environment. After all, they are connected.
First, take some time to slow down while you gaze softly at the Circle. Breathe in and out several times. Drop your shoulders. Relax your jaw.
Now that you’re relaxed, imagine you can see the space within your Second Chakra (remember, that’s located about 2″ below your navel).
Zoom in, like a camera. See or sense it moving in slow motion.
What do you notice? Go ahead and make notes about what you sense.
2. Gaze at this Circle and ask for help so that you can get more aware.
Is there anything in your personal space or immediate environment that could be triggering an unsettling reaction in you?
- Is something missing? Is something present that shouldn’t be?
- Is there toxic build up?
- What else do you notice that doesn’t seem right?
3. Physical objects in your external space carry a lot of energy through them, especially if they have been gifted to you or are second hand pieces. These could be books, equipment, furniture, pictures and other objects of art. Are there any objects in your home or office that are having a negative effect on you? If so, can you identify them?
What would remedy the situation?
Does something need to be moved, rearranged, cleaned or removed completely? Can something be brought in to remedy the situation?
4. You could be preoccupied by things that cause you to be anxious. Let this Circle help you relax and answer these questions:
“Is there something I can let go of that will help ease the situation?”
“if so, what is it and where is it located?”
“Am I internalizing anything?”
“Is there anything else?”
4. What emotion is running through you? Is it throwing you off balance?
If so, are you experiencing any emotional compulsions, obsessions or phobias?
6. Is there anything else that’s irritating you?
Identify it if you can.
What will remedy the situation?
Does something need to be moved, cleaned, cleared or rearranged? Does anything need to be removed completely?
Is there anything else?
7. Is there anything that you could bring into your space or your diet that would help you be happier or more creative?
Would anything increase your good health or emotional stability?
Could anything be done to increase your sense of safety?
What might you add that would bring more beauty into your space?
Congratulations! You can finish Creating Internal Safety by closing the door to any old pathways to suffering. Then remind yourself that your personal space belongs to you. How you take care of it has a profound effect on the rest of your life!

Challenges to Mind Body Integration
For best results using the Intuitive Learning Circles™, look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction to full embodiment is more complete.
- 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.
- The Corpus Callosum is a part of the brain that facilitates communication between your left and right cerebral hemispheres. When dealing with learning difficulties, it may help to perform simple cross crawl movements while you gaze at this Chakra Key to balance the chakras at the corpus callosum.
- Feel free to move at any time in any way to help you embody your experience.
Fixated Thoughts, Conflicts or Shock
- If you go completely blank or are unable to access anything, the question or subject may have brought up an inner conflict. If that happens, look at this Circle (#32 Condor from Gifts from the Rainforest). Follow these directions:
Take several deep breaths and relax while you gaze into the Circle. Imagine that you can use it to focus in on a thought, experience or conflict that’s causing a problem for you, like a bull’s eye.
Imagine the problem is melting or send a beam of light directly to the blockage. Allow your laser beam to break up the fixation or melt it until it’s gone. Take all the time you need and don’t forget to add any stretching, movements, rolling, shaking, etc., you may need to completely clear the energy.
Once you’re finished, go back to where you left off and complete whatever you were working on.
- The Intuitive Learning Circles™ are like homeopathic remedies that work on a vibrational level. If you don’t need the remedy, it will do nothing.
So, if you’re already clear and in balance, looking at a Circle will do nothing. If you’ve selected a process that you don’t really need, the Circles will do nothing.
Individual Circles can, however, help you access answers. Just ask, “what do I need here?” Then trust the answer that comes. Maybe there’s another kind of process that would help you better at this time.
- Finally, relax! The Intuitive Learning Circles™ aren’t about “doing it right,” they’re about opening up to the possibilities!
The Intuitive Learning Circles™ should not be considered as an exclusive method of treatment. The appropriate medical or psychotherapeutic authorities should be consulted for the diagnosis and treatment if there is any medical or psychological condition.

Kuan Yin’s Transformation Game for Chakra Balancing ~
Some people may be having difficulty physically and emotionally because they need chakra balancing to help them with one or more levels of their Hierarchy of Needs.
Here is an interesting and informative comparison between Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and the Seven Primary Chakras. As you go through this simple exercise using the Intuitive Learning Circles™ from Reiki Chakra Keys, you will not only gain some very interesting psychological insights, but you’ll also be able to clear and balance each of your seven Primary Chakras.
Here’s how it works:
Put both feet flat on the floor and keep your arms and legs uncrossed. Read the information and then gaze softly at the corresponding Reiki Chakra Key for insight and energy healing. You will probably feel a lot of energy moving – that’s all right, that means the symbols are working with Reiki energy to cleanse and balance your chakras. You will know you’re done when the energy calms down and you have a clear answer to the questions. Then you can move on to the remaining Circles with each of their descriptions to complete the process. Once you’re done, remember to relax and allow your energy to settle.
Step One: Each of us has a unique vibration and “soul color” that allows us to sync up with the Universe appropriately.
It’s common for empath’s or other highly sensitive people to take on other people’s vibration in an effort to survive or get along. Use this first Circle to reinforce healthy boundaries and be sure that you’re reading your energy and not someone elses!
“I know who I am. I distinguish my needs from the needs of others.”
Step Two: Your chakras respond to old conditioning and mindsets. To change your mindset, establish a strong intention stated in the positive.
You might want to write it down. Examples:
“I release fear and allow my energy to harmonize with Universal Love energy.”
“I release chaos or illness and align with health and happiness.”
Now that you know what your intention is, let’s find out what might be needed to balance each of your seven primary chakras to align with your goal!
First Chakra Key:
“Our root chakra is red and governs the physical body, our instincts and the assumptions we have about life.
If we have been brought up under the assumption that our bodies and physical processes are bad or dirty, we will manifest that on the physical plane. We will be prone to violence, disrespect and exhaustion.
Clearing the energy with this Reiki Chakra Key will help us to find a new foundation and give us strength to make the necessary changes for a vibrant and powerful life.” ~ Reiki Chakra Keys, Rheanni Lightwater
In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the Root needs are physiological – air, food, drink, shelter, warmth, sex, sleep and having adequate methods of communication.
Gaze softly at the Root Chakra Key below for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:
“Are my physiological needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”
Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Root Chakra in balance?
Second Chakra Key
When this chakra is dis-eased, toxic emotions and entanglements build up and poison the entire system. Our ability to create is repressed and depression sets in.
Free flowing energy here is essential to physical, emotional and mental health.
We can forgive ourselves and others, which helps us to maintain a healthy sense of well-being.” ~ Reiki Chakra Keys, Rheanni Lightwater
In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the second level needs are safety oriented – protection from the elements, security, order, law, stability and freedom from fear.
Gaze softly at the Second Chakra Key below for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:
“Are my safety and security needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”
Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my 2nd Chakra in balance?
Third Chakra Key:
When our sense of ourselves is poor, the chakra becomes sluggish and clogged up.
If our sense of ourselves is positive, we have self-confidence and the chakra pulsates with vibrancy and harmony. We exude an attitude of faith and cheerfulness.
Our energy-level is high, we a have a high mental capacity for success and others are naturally attracted to our charisma.
In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the third level needs include love and belongingness needs – friendship, intimacy, affection and love from work group, family, friends, and romantic relationships.
Gaze softly at the Third Chakra Key below for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:
“Are my love and belongingness needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”
Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Third Chakra in balance?
Fourth Chakra Key (Heart):
Indigenous people believe that all of nature can communicate with each other through the heart. That is why its color is green, the most basic color for healing, nurturing and abundance.
It is the home of the mind of compassion, which extends to every living being, including ourselves.” ~ Reiki Chakra Keys, Rheanni Lightwater
In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the fourth level needs include esteem needs – achievement, self-love, independence, status, dominance, prestige, self-approval, self-respect and respect from others.
Gaze softly at the Fourth Chakra Key below for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:
“Are my compassion and esteem needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”
Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Fourth Chakra in balance?
Fifth Chakra Key (Throat):
Many people in our society have difficulty with this energy center. This may manifest in suppressed emotions, not saying what we really mean or an inability to ask for what we need. It often impairs us from being able to achieve all that we are capable of.
A healthy throat chakra allows us to be clear and honest in our intentions, words and deeds. Through it we can avoid the bitterness and restlessness that comes from an unfulfilled life.” ~ Reiki Chakra Keys, Rheanni Lightwater
In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the fifth level needs include cognitive needs that include knowledge, meaning, expression, self-mastery and self-awareness.
Gaze softly at the Fifth Chakra Key below for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:
“Are my cognitive needs being met? Am I able to ask for what I need and straightforward in my requests? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”
Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Fifth Chakra in balance?
Sixth Chakra Key (Third Eye):
A healthy third eye is important in the development of intuition and common sense. When it’s blocked, we tend to doubt ourselves, become cynical and rely on the opinions of others.
We lose our imagination, our dreams and our personal power.
Conversely, when it’s clear, we are capable of regaining our inner vision and receiving clairvoyant information. We can develop relationships with our Higher Self, Angels, Teachers and Guides.
These beings are here to assist us in achieving the Reiki ideals of Universal Love.” ~ Reiki Chakra Keys, Rheanni Lightwater
In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the sixth level needs include aesthetic needs – the appreciation of and search for beauty, balance and form, etc. Kuan Yin would add the need for spiritual insight and understanding.
Gaze softly at the Sixth Chakra Key below for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:
“Are my needs for creativity and spiritual understanding being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”
Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Sixth Chakra in balance?
Find out more about Intuition and Common Sense.
Seventh Chakra Key (Crown):
“The crown chakra is our connection to spirit. This is the energy center that connects us with divine inspiration. It’s color is white as it contains all things and it can cast a golden ring when in states of ecstasy.
In this experience of “enlightenment,” we can perceive the potential both within and without and are completely at peace with ourselves.
When this energy center is open and balanced, we more easily receive information and life force from our Higher Self and the Universe. It is important, however, to remember that the energy is intended to continue moving down through the chakras. Otherwise, we may find that we are always “up in our head” and disconnected from the body.
Take all the time you need with this Key until you feel stable and calm.” ~ Reiki Chakra Keys, Rheanni Lightwater
In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the seventh level needs include self actualization needs – realizing personal potential, self-fulfillment, seeking personal growth and peak experiences.
Gaze softly at the Seventh Chakra Key below for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:
“Are my self-actualization needs being met? Are my fulfillment needs blocked in any way? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”
Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Seventh Chakra in balance?
Now that you’ve gone through chakra balancing for the seven main chakras, your energy is more your own and you’ll have a much easier time staying grounded now. Remember, a person whose energy is balanced and grounded benefits everyone. Be sure to take some time to relax and rest.
Kuan Yin’s chakra balancing meditation uses healing symbols and affirmations from Grail Reiki and Reiki Chakra Keys for chakra balancing and clearing.
If you’re looking for deeper healing, you may need a personal energy clearing or it may be time for you to be attuned to the Reiki energy yourself.

Rheanni Lightwater – Intuitive and Reiki Master ~
Intuitive Readings are a powerful form of energy clearing and mind body healing that improves self-confidence and productivity. Personal Intuitive Readings can change the direction you’re heading, transform your life and redirect how you are using your energy.
Intuitive Readings with Animal Totems and Nature Spirits help you get back in touch with nature, develop your intuition and strengthen your instincts.
We can follow their example using animal totems for inner guidance from the Gifts from the Rainforest series of Shamanic healing.
Look at the Circle for Raven Medicine with a soft focus and breathe deeply. Use the affirmation:
“What kind of changes would it be good to know about?”
One of my favorite books of divination is the I Ching or Book of Change.
Intuitive Readings that consult the Tao (or natural flow of life) can be very instructive about how to best handle challenging situations and make the best decisions for you.
Angelic Guidance is available to provide hope, healing and assistance for those who genuinely request it.
Access to your Guardian Angel and the Angelic Realms is especially helpful if you have trouble asking for and accepting help. Our society programs us to feel separate and unlovable. This often leads to alternating feelings of stubborn resistance and hopelessness.
Intuitive readings with Angels are for you if you’re ready to take a more cooperative approach to finding grace and accepting your Divinity.
Intuitive Readings can utilize Reiki Chakra Keys to find out if the chakras are properly activated, aligned and functioning to create health and vitality.
Healthy chakras channel energy into and out of the body, which facilitates elimination of toxic materials. Additionally, some chakras are being activated to support our human evolution and awareness. If you are having difficulty activating new chakras or keeping them cleared and balanced, you could be experiencing a great deal of pain and have difficulty eliminating physical, emotional and spiritual toxins.
Since the primary chakras correspond with various organs and systems, a lot of information can be gleaned from intuitive readings using the chakras as an indicator. Find out more about a Grail Reiki healing >
Awakening the Essential Human is a unique type of energy medicine for the New Paradigm for emotional imbalances that could be causing physical, mental or spiritual dis-ease.
The existence of the Essential Self is discussed in many cultures and disciplines. Other names would be the Authentic Self, the Psyche, the Golden Child or the Basic Self. Regardless of what it’s called, you can think of it as your “I am,” your true essence and direct connection with the rest of the cosmos through your Higher Self.
The Essential Human intuitive readings aim to transform harmful attitudes, emotions and energy patterns that may be stuck in your light body.
Here is the SOS symbol from Soul Oriented Solutions. I use it all the time to access true help and assistance in times of trouble.

SOS Self-care Formula #4: Develop Healthy Boundaries
Many 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 eventually 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.
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. If that’s something you’d like to do, welcome to Develop Healthy Boundaries and Quiet a Busy Mind!
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.
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
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 accomplish your goals.
1. 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 this Circle.
Continue breathing and bring your awareness to your tailbone.
Balance – What do you need to get in balance about?
2. 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.
Calm – What are some thoughts that relax you?
3. See if you can collect any noisy thoughts or distractions into the center of the 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.
Gathering – Are there any distractions to let go of?
4. 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.
Protection – Is there anything you need to say goodbye to?
5. 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.
Beauty – What is a beautiful place you remember or would like to go to?
6. 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.
Trust – What do you trust? Could anything be done to increase your sense of trust?
7. Give yourself permission to slow down and turn your attention to what really matters to you. Can you name what’s most important?
Let the Circle help you lift any pressure you may feel right up off of you.
Without all that pressure, it’s easier to know what your true priorities are.
Intention – What’s important to you now?
8. 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 you become more aware.
Presence – What do you feel in your body?
9. 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. Your mind is clear.
Surrender – What is something you can do that expresses love?
10. 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 other people’s thoughts or expectations.
It’s genuinely joyful to have a quiet mind and a light heart.
Resolution – What other joyful decisions can you make?
11. Use the Circle to help you finish closing any remaining 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. Your mind is able to rest now.
Completion – How do you feel now?
Congratulations! You’ve learned how the Intuitive Learning Circles can help you to develop healthy boundaries. Having a quiet mind and light heart changes your perspective and that makes it easier to accomplish your goals.
Be sure to give yourself time to rest and integrate.

Santa Fe Intuitive: In My Words, Rheanni Lightwater, BFA, CHT, CKP
The phrases I use most often when describing what I do are ‘freedom and choice,’ ‘being joyful,’ ‘personal responsibility’, ‘sustainable prosperity’ and ‘clearing the way for your heart’s desire‘. During an initial consultation, I’ll want to know what you want to have happen and if I can assist you in getting there. I see my role in the healing process as a teacher who can guide you through some of the more difficult transitions of your life. I offer a safe, learning space for you to discover how powerful and capable you are.
I believe in the innate healing capabilities of the human spirit. When I first began studying the area of self-healing and soul retrieval in 1998, I already had eight years of bodywork experience working with people who had suffered from traumatic experiences. I saw everything from emotional and physical abuse, to sexual abuse and post-traumatic stress. I learned how the body forms patterns of contraction and hyperextension to compensate and protect itself from pain. I found out that the memory of a traumatic event is held in the tissue and perpetuated through stress messages that are routinely sent through the central nervous system like a continuous feedback loop.
It became apparent to me as I worked with ptsd, that most people’s impulses and immediate reactions to situations are based on their past experiences. Bits of important movements and memories become frozen through trauma or shock, leaving the person in a state of amnesia. I also noticed that people with this kind of amnesia can be highly sensitive and often have difficulty following through on their goals and hopes for the future.
I have observed recurring episodes where physical and mental symptoms would erupt, seemingly without warning. However, these episodes are almost always triggered by an event or person that brings back memories of a past traumatic event. It seems that the mind and body are definitely working together on some unknown level to sabotage any efforts made towards full recovery.
As a part of my own journey, I have also been working through my own learning disabilities resulting from traumatic early life situations. I have suffered from dyslexia for as long as I could remember. My mind would often go blank and anxiety attacks were frequent and debilitating.
One day, I decided that no matter what, I would find a way to bridge the gap between the limited life I was living and the life I dreamed of having. I decided that I would search every avenue that might bring me into contact with that unknown level where mind and body meet and rectify the damage that had been done. At the time, the books all said that victims of trauma and abuse could never fully recover, that they would at best, just learn to live with it. I wasn’t willing to settle for that answer.
I pursued every modality available to me, including Hypnotherapy, Hanna Somatics, Cranial-sacral Therapy, Structural Integration and dozens of other forms of bodywork. I learned about Homeopathy and put myself in the care of a fine Homeopathic Nurse Practitioner in Los Angeles.
Anything that held promise, I investigated tirelessly. I came into contact with various forms of indigenous healing – Hawaiian, Peruvian, Chinese, Tibetan and Native American – just to name a few. I meditated, learned kinesiology and got attuned to Reiki. In 1998, I began writing about what was working and why. I studied soul retrieval, dreams and symbology, shamanism and theories about the collective unconscious. Each modality was helpful in its own way, yet I kept having trouble holding ground. I would do all right for a while, but then I’d fall back into the same old patterns.
It wasn’t enough for me to just escape from unwanted thoughts and feelings. I had learned that problems cannot be solved from the same mental position they were created from. During intensive shamanic journeys it became clear that a transformation of consciousness was required to get from where I was to where I wanted to be and that my emotional healing was inextricably interwoven with how I was relating to my environment. What I needed was a way to retrain myself to adapt to the changes happening all around me. I needed to be stronger, more resilient and able to access inner resources I didn’t know I had. That is when the Intuitive Learning Circles™ came into being and my intuitive abilities came in full force.
In 2002, I started working as a medical intuitive at a Naturopathic Detoxing Clinic in Tigard, Oregon that specialized in helping highly sensitive people detox from exposure to harmful chemicals, electro-magnetic poisoning and heavy metals. I was asked to come up with energy medicine protocols that would assist people in detoxing quicker and easier. I succeeded with the Re-balancing Cellular Resonance process using the Intuitive Learning Circles™. Soon, the Doctors started sending me home with the patients to find out what they were reacting to in their environment. That is when I discovered how important Feng Shui and space clearing is to living a happy, healthy life.
Now, my husband Bob and I are here in Santa Fe, New Mexico and I am excited to share what I know with this extraordinary community. Out of my search for wholeness, peace and self-love, I humbly offer the mind body healing, intuition training and self-help books of Soul Resources LLC.

Santa Fe Hypnotherapy: In My Words, Robert Morrison, DCH
We are now moving into an age of healing where people are their own, most profound healers. We no longer look to our doctors with complete trust to take care of what ails us, nor do we always accept their diagnosis or opinions as absolute and infallible. I believe, on a material level, the rising cost and demand for health care, easy access to information and a more educated and savvy society have created this. Our society is now beginning to realize that our emotional and spiritual health plays a major part in our physical well being. I believe it’s our thoughts and emotional state that create our physical health.
No matter what state your physical, mental, emotional or spiritual health is in, you can decide to change it and bring back to any desirable state that you choose. There is no such thing as a hopeless disease, phobia, habit, relationship or state of being and there is no one who can cure it for you without your active participation. Though hypnotherapy, you can reclaim your power and the will to succeed. You can also align the unconscious mind with your power and will to create a deep expectation and faith in your most joyful hopes and aspirations and know that they will come true.
The role of the healer in the 21st Century is one who acts as both a guide and a mirror showing you who you are and assisting you past your perceived blocks. Our role is to hold the space for you to discover how powerful and capable you are.
The Approach of Soul Resources LLC
It is difficult to come to forgiveness and peace with ourselves for many reasons that include our upbringing, societal norms, past experiences and host of other events both known and unknown. All of our biographical and transpersonal experiences along with the current state of society, nature and our planet often “inter-play” together to create a seemingly irrational experience of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual maladies.
Both Rheanni and I know that it’s possible for these forces to be woven into a new and beautiful tapestry of self, but first, the thread and yarn must be untangled. To do that, we assist our students and clients in discovering new and different perspectives about their issues. We do this in a variety of ways.
• We assist them in getting out of survival.
• Facilitate the release of judgement, resentment or shame to create an opening for experiencing forgiveness and peace.
• Break down overwhelming situations to simpler, “do-able” tasks.
• Teach the constructive use of mind. Letting go of fixated mindsets and “mental addictions”.
• Promote quality of life issues including pain control, stress relief, transforming addictive habits and encouraging fun and happiness (this does not mean that we cover up or deny problems, it simply means that we encourage clients to be really gentle with themselves).
•Guide them to untapped inner resources and tools to make the changes that they want to make in their lives.
• Help them transform projections so that they may live happier, more authentic lives.
• Get them in touch with their unlimited potential and motivate them to pursue their goals wisely.
