How To Access Common Sense

This Mind Exercise is about how to access common sense. 

How to Access Common SenseLet’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 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.

mind Body IntegrationAn 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

Common Sense and the Third Eye ChakraStep 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.”

Truth Mandala
PLUG INTO TRUTH

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.

Extra-intuitive Activities

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.”


Application

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?”

INTEGRATION

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.”

beneficial karma

Completion

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

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

“I am grounded in the present.”

“I ground common sense in the New Paradigm.”

Ask yourself:

“How does it feel to access good common sense, based on verifiable experience or repeated observation of the facts?”

Congratulations!

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.

Closure for Mind Body HealingFinish 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!

Developing Precognition – Staying Out of Trouble

Intuition Training Quiz with Rheanni Lightwater: Have You Been Taking the Hit for Someone Else?

Mind Exercise for Developing Precognition If you’ve ever gotten caught in the middle of a fight between people, you know what it feels like to take a punch that was actually meant for someone else.  It feels horrible! Especially for highly sensitive people, who often get caught up in emotional and/or mental conflicts between people.

“If only I knew beforehand or had some kind of “spidey sense” that there was going to be a problem, I wouldn’t have even shown up!”

But wait. That’s not really so far out of the realm of what’s possible. It’s called developing precognition or as I like to say, listening to your intuitive hit.

Clearing the Way for Your Heart’s Desire

Use Your Inner Guidance and Gut Instincts to Get Out of the Way and Learn How to Be in the Right Place at the Right Time.

You’ve probably had an experience of knowing that it just felt wrong to go to a certain place at a certain time. Then later, you find out that there was an accident in that very same place and time! That’s your precognition at work and it’s a darn useful skill to have, especially when times are so chaotic.


The Intuitive Learning Circles are great at bringing intuitive hits, hunches and other unconscious information up to the surface to be examined more closely. Especially if you have learning difficulties or your inner guidance is blocked for some reason. That’s why I’m sharing this Mind Exercise from Learning in the New Paradigm. By playing, you’ll have the opportunity to engage your imagination and shed some light on potential situations where you might be better off just getting out of the way!

In the old paradigm based on greed and separatism, it’s been commonplace for people to try to control things by invading other people’s space or interfering with important personal projects or relationships. This can happen on a physical level, but it can also happen on an energetic level, which often causes emotional shock that sits frozen under the surface of our awareness. We have expressions for when these kinds of manipulations happen.  “Get out of my space,” or “stop playing mind games with me,” are just a few.

Gaze softly at this Circle to help you gently release any shock that might be under the surface for you. Imagine the lines are getting all wavy and loose.

 

Use this next Circle to help you identify unconscious information about how you can develop precognition in your current situation. Gaze softly at this Circle and ask yourself:

“Is there a situation coming up where I need to get out of the way?”

“Is there a situation where someone is getting in my way or blocking what I need to do?”

Be patient and relax into your body. The Circle is helping you focus in on pertinent unconscious information. Your answer could come in the form of a feeling, an image, words or a combination of them all.

If the answer you get is “no”, count yourself lucky and keep up the good work staying out of trouble!

If the answer is “yes” or “sometimes”, keep going with this exercise to find out more about what’s going on and what you can do about it.


Go Through the Mind Exercise for Developing Precognition

1. Slow down and ask for more information about what’s really going on. Use your imagination and see the landscape of your mind slowing down too. Things may simply be moving too fast for you to get out of the way when trouble is about to happen.

 

3. When things are chaotic or moving too fast, it’s easy to get distracted and fall into scams, traps and deceptive mind games. Plus, people are more likely to be mixed up in situations where they really don’t belong. Use Kuan Yin’s symbol for Truth to help you separate what’s true from what’s a distraction or all-out lie.

“TRUTH KNOWS NO MASTER.”

 

Being in the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time

4. Bring to mind one relationship or situation where you think there might be a problem. While you think about it, gaze at this Circle and ask your gut a couple of simple “yes” or “no” questions:

“Is there danger in this situation?”

Once you find the situation, ask yourself:

“What is the danger here? Would my time be wasted? Is there an important reason I’m considering doing this? Is it worth it to put myself in this situation?”

 

5. Continue your self-inquiry:

“Would I be pulled off track or doing harm to myself? Would my projects be harmed? My loved ones?”

“If so, what is the problem?”

It could be timing, placement, priorities, an agreement or something else…

Take your time to get as much information as you can.

 

6.  Would being in this situation have a negative effect on your boundaries? Your prosperity? Your health or well-being? In what way?

 

7. What is the best thing to do in this case? If you need to move out of the way, see yourself doing that in your minds eye. If you need to let go or say “no”, see yourself doing that. Whatever message you get, see yourself taking your own advice.

Finish this part of Developing Precognition with these affirmations:

“I resolve to be in the right place at the right time for my highest good.”

“I stay out of trouble and follow through on my priorities.”

 

“I close the doors on old habits, distractions or misconceptions.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

Congratulations! Now that you’re clearer about your situation, I highly recommend that you go through this strengthening exercise:

Standing Strong and Grounding in the Truth.

Chakra Balancing with Reiki

Kuan Yin’s Transformation Game for Chakra Balancing ~

Some people may be having difficulty physically and emotionally because they are out of balance on one or more levels of their Hierarchy of Needs.

Chakra Balancing with Reiki - Activated ChakrasHere 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!

Mind Body IntegrationTo fully integrate your personal vibration simply gaze softly at the Circle both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body while you affirm to yourself:

“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.”

I ____________________________________.”

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:

1st Chakra - Root Chakra

“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?

Find out more about Root Causes

Second Chakra Key

2nd Chakra - Spleen ChakraThe second energy center is referred to here as the spleen chakra because it is deeply connected to our emotions, digestion and immunity. Its color is orange.

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?

Find out how the 2nd Chakra helps you create safety >

Third Chakra Key:

3rd Chakra - Solar Plexus ChakraThe solar plexus chakra is the center of who we are and who we think we are, so it is fitting that its color is a bright yellow.

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?

Learn more about the 3rd chakra and your gut instincts >

Fourth Chakra Key (Heart):

Fourth Chakra - Heart Chakra“Our heart chakra is the bridge between our bodies and the spiritual world. It is where our thoughts and beliefs about love meet the physical expression of it.

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):

Fifth Chakra - Throat Chakra“The energy of the throat chakra is about what you put out into the world – having a voice. It’s about speaking your truth and is blue in color, as in ‘true blue’.

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):

Sixth Chakra - Third Eye Chakra“The third eye chakra contains the energy of insight and wisdom. Located in the center of the forehead just above the eyebrow, this chakra is associated with the color purple.

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?

Seventh Chakra Key (Crown):

Seventh Chakra - Crown chakra“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?

Congratulations!

Now that you’ve gone through 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 energy healing 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.

How To Trust Your Gut Instinct

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

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

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


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


How to Trust Your Gut Instincts

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

Here is an affirmation that works well:

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

“I am upright and facing forward.”

 

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

“I let them strengthen and support me.”

 

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

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

What do you need?

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

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

Extra-intuitive Activities

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

Future Pacing

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

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


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

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

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

“I release the need to be impulsive and reactionary. I now respect my decisions and the decisions of others.”

 

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

 

“I release my obsession with the negative. I now live with satisfaction and optimism.”

 

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


INTEGRATION

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

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

Completion

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

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

“I am grounded in the present.”

 

Ask yourself:

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

What about later today or tomorrow?

A month from now?

How does it feel a year from now?

 

Congratulations!

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

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

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

“All holes are sealed and healed.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

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

How To Develop Healthy Boundaries

SOS Self-care Formula #4: Develop Healthy Boundaries

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

If the pathways remain open, all kinds of trouble (karma, issues, illness or confusion) can pass back and forth between people without their awareness. If left unchecked, this type of attachment can 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

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

 


Let yourself breathe and relax as much as possible. Don’t worry if the images move around or change in any way. That just means the Circles are working and that your mind and body are relaxing.
Be sure to go through the entire formula and at the end, give yourself time to rest and integrate. Developing a quiet mind and light heart changes your perspective and that makes it easier to 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 the Intuitive Learning Circle™ way 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.

Grounding in the Truth

A Social Activists Mind Exercise for Grounding In The Truth ~

Grounding in the Truth - Social ActivistsMany people now realize how important grounding in the truth is because external power struggles can so easily uproot us from our true intentions. Staying centered requires that you know how to use the power of your mind to control your own energy.

This 5 Step Mind Exercise from RESOLVE uses affirmations and the Intuitive Learning Circles™ to quickly help you when you:

  •  Are having difficulty getting grounded
  •  Feel caught up in a power struggle
  •  Need to disconnect from an intrusive person
  •  Feel trapped by agendas from other people
  •  Are wasting energy on the past
  •  Are worrying or fearful about the future
  •  Can’t think straight or get dependable guidance
  •  Are experiencing poor boundaries.

Here’s how Grounding in the Truth works:

Put both feet flat on the floor and start with your arms and legs uncrossed. Simply gaze softly at the first image while you establish an intention for the exercise. Repeat the affirmations that go with it for several minutes.

Relax and breathe.

You will probably feel a lot of energy moving – that’s all right, that means the Circles are working to focus your mind and clean up your energy. You will know you’re done when the energy calms down and you can think clearly. Then you can move on to the remaining Circles with each of their affirmations to complete the process. Once you’re done, remember to relax and allow your energy to settle.

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.

 


Step One: Begin by establishing a strong intention stated in the positive.

You might want to write it down. Examples:

“I maintain my integrity and am true to myself.”

“I reclaim my strength and am grounding in the truth.”

I ____________________________________.”

Step Two – Resolve

Gaze softly at the Circle while affirming these thoughts:

“I detach from petty ego concerns and things that don’t matter.”

“I disconnect from unproductive projects and inappropriate people.”

“I resolve to use my power wisely.”

 “I release all subconscious agreements to tap into other people’s energy or to allow them to tap into mine.”

 

Step Three ~ Self-determination

Connect to this Circle through your breath, then continue with these affirmations:

“I reclaim all of my energy, power and gifts.”

“I use them to be present and alert.”

“I use them to create my Souls purpose.”

 

Step Four – Centering

Bring your awareness to your heart center and keep breathing:

“I am centered and my heart is strong.”

“I let go of anxiousness, pain and sorrow.”

“I know how to nourish myself appropriately.”

“I maintain healthy boundaries. My life is my own.”

 

Step Five- Grounding

Take all the time you need with this Circle until you feel stable and calm.

“My feet are firmly planted on the Earth.”

“I slow down and step carefully.”

“I am connected with and grounded in the truth.”

“I am ___________________________.”

Congratulations!

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.
