Objective Observation – Is Seeing Really Believing

This Mind Exercise* is about how to develop objective observation. Let’s start with an explanation of observation that I like to use:

“Observation is what is actually seen and experienced in person. Not what is felt or heard second hand. It has the power to transform when kept objective. However, what is seen can be taken out of context, muddled, manipulated or rigged, especially in today’s high tech world. Misuse of observation causes people to jump to conclusions and is the source of propaganda, hoaxes, false advertising and bad TV sit-coms. The concept of “seeing is believing” creates assumptions. Things are not always as they appear.

The mind identifies things by comparing them to accepted data from the past. If you have no frame of reference to understand what you observe, your mind will try to fit it into a familiar scenario where the logic will then attempt to formulate an explanation. That process frequently lacks objectivity, which can lead us to incorrect conclusions.

Perhaps that is the source of the old saying, “to err is to be human.” It’s also uniquely human to self-correct by developing new skills.

*from the Learning in the New Paradigm Series 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 develop objective observation skills, let’s go through this simple series of Intuitive Learning Circles™. They’ve been put together to help you relax, contemplate the nature of objective observation and integrate the information.

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.

All you have to do is read the instructions and then follow through on the directions while you gaze softly at the Circle.


Step One: Pick a significant experience that you have witnessed that concerns you. Place what you saw in the center open space of this Circle. What do you know about this? Gather up the facts that you have from this experience.

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

 

Step Two: Bring your Rational Thought Chakras into balance and proper connection with your Soul. These chakras correspond with your five senses.

 

Step Three: Go back to the experience and gather up more objective observation about it. What was happening? What was being done? Or what were others trying to do? Do your best to stick with what you actually saw, not what you make up about what might have been happening.

You can check your facts if need be. Can you observe additional factors?

 

Step Four: Use this symbol to help you clear away some of the emotional or factual clutter. You can visualize it as busy thoughts or numbers, actual objects or smoke clearing out of your mind. Take all the time you need and remember the experience from different angles until you feel the clutter has lifted.

 

Step Five: Now that some of the smoke is cleared and you can think more clearly about the experience, were you personally holding any particular intention or wish? If so, what was it?

When it comes to others that you observed first hand, were there opposing goals? If so, what were they?

 

Step Six: From what you saw, what did you observe in their behavior?

 

Step Seven: It’s important to keep to the facts. You cannot know for sure what their motivations were, you only know what you saw and what has been stated, either verbally or in written form. Clear away your personal opinions, agendas and prejudices.

Imagine you can use this Circle to help you sift through your impressions and sweep away the extra garbage and distractions from your mind.

 

Step Eight: Let the energy of your Third Eye focus in on the experience. In this quiet place, what insights can you open up to? What is your inner guidance?

Can you get insights about the overall situation? What do you notice about:

  • The environment and the energy in it?
  • Who was holding the power and did it shift?
  • The outcome; for example, is the outcome complete or still ongoing?
  • Is there still an opening for change to occur?
  • What else catches your attention?

 

Step Nine: Connect understanding by visualizing “balance” in the center open space of this Circle. Imagine the energy of wisdom and justice flowing along the lines towards “balance”.

Might you have jumped to any conclusions in this experience? If so, what would be a better course of action?

What was happening to you during the experience? Notice what your energy was like. What can you do now to benefit yourself and/or your position?

 

Step Ten: What is your conclusion: What do you understand now about this experience? What do you observe in yourself? Is there something you would like to improve?

Once you get a heartfelt answer, Congratulations! You might want to make a note of what you’ve observed.

 

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 be more intuitive.

Observation out of balance

Observation out of balance is about preventing mistakes rather than going for balance or joy.

Let’s see what we can do to learn from what we’ve observed and use it to create a more balanced, joyful future!

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

“I step back from my reactions and jumping to conclusions.  I am responsible for my own feelings.”

 

“I release all false information. I now perceive clearly by shedding light on the truth.”

 

“I let go of burdens, obligations and oppression. All parts of me are open and receptive to joy, fun and happiness.”

 

“I release disdain for others and myself. I disengage from projections and allow myself to hear the truth.”

 

“I release and let go of the tyranny of my personal ego. My Soul is now in charge.”

 

INTEGRATION

Imagine that you can access your beneficial karma for this situation and being a better observer. Gather all your good deeds in the center, blank area of this Circle.

“I gather up my beneficial karma like seeds, and plant them in my personal garden.”

“I let others deal with their own karma, while I focus on mine.”

 

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.”

 

Affirm to yourself:

“I release any agreement I have to internalize what I experience or let it get under my skin. Now, in the past or in the future. 

I am an objective observer.”

Congratulations!

You can thank yourself for taking the time today to learn how to develop objective observation – a gift that will make your life a whole lot better!

Bring all the energy of gratitude and appreciation in towards you the center.

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

“All holes are sealed and healed.”

“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

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

Open Your Heart and Reunify

How to Open Your Heart to Positive Change and Creative Inspiration ~

Transformation Game - Open Your HeartKuan Yin has been helping us through these I Ching Readings to transition from the old economic paradigm based on greed and fear to a new paradigm of co-operation and sustainable prosperity. Today, her advice about opening your heart comes from the I Ching, an ancient book of divination that follows the flow of the cosmos. Because of that, her advice and instruction comes from a different perspective than ours.

To help you better connect with her assistance, she uses the Intuitive Learning Circles ™ to communicate with you through meditation, affirmations and visualization.

Mind Body IntegrationMind Body Integration

For best results playing a Transformation Game, look at each Circle both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.

 

Kuan Yin’s I Ching Readings and Transformation Games can help you to identify problems, change your focus to positive solutions, ground yourself and get in the present. Simply relax and gaze at the Circles while contemplating Kuan Yins words. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek.


Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for:

Hexagram # 59 – Reuniting

How can you open your heart to creative, new ideas when the heart of humanity seems to have shut down?

When we are in the midst of danger, what can be done to reunify us with our “better angels?”

The first thing to consider is what direction are you, personally, heading?

Are you going for revenge and retribution?

Are you immersed in self-pity or becoming cynical?

Are you in danger of shutting down entirely?

Or, are you willing to look beyond your desire for immediate gratification and open your heart to a more inspiring and far-reaching goal? 

I Ching Workbook - R. L. WingIf you are an artist or looking to create positive change, hexagram #59 REUNITING from The Book of Change has excellent advice:

Look for the symbols, rhythms, and patterns that have inspired humanity for all times, and incorporate them into your work. Make a sincere attempt to meet the social responsibility of the artist: REUNITING people with their reality.” ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

What is Needed to Open Your Heart and Reunite?

Regain Your Connection with Courage

In order to reunite, it’s essential to connect with and maintain our courage. You can use this Intuitive Learning Circle™ that represents the energy and natural medicine of the Jaguar. Simply gaze at the circle with a soft focus for a minute or two with these positive affirmations:

“I consciously activate my courage, strength & determination.”

“I have the courage to change in a positive way.”

“I have the strength and determination to follow through on what’s best for me and my community.”

 

“Working toward common goals will greatly benefit your inner strength; there is no regret in such selflessness.” ~ Line 3 from hexagram #59 REUNITING

Once courage has been reclaimed, we instinctively know our hearts are at the very center of our being. Somehow, it connects us with nature and a greater truth – some kind of communication with the rest of the cosmos.

Yet, if our hearts are closed or shut down, we have trouble getting those messages from our inner selves. We doubt and second-guess our hopes for joy, balance and freedom. Or, we might try to force our way through with hostility, vengeance or rage. We may even give up on ourselves and give in to apathy.

In times like these, we must look within ourselves for answers:

“I look within for an “inspiring idea” that could REUNIFY and empower the situations I’m dealing with.”

Open Your Solar Plexus Chakra

Gaze softly at the center of this circle and become aware of your solar plexus – the soft area of your stomach where your ribs go up in the front. This is where your Third Chakra is located, which is a very important energy center when it comes to health and well-being. If the Third Chakra closes down, disconnects or gets clogged up, the energy for manifesting and healing is seriously impaired. Use this affirmation:

“My Third Chakra is connected, balanced and open.”

Open Your Heart Chakra

Spend a few minutes now to gaze softly at the Reiki Chakra Key below to open your Heart Chakra. Allow it to relax and expand. You can even imagine a warm energy radiating out of the center of your chest and as that light radiates out, you find that all kinds of sorrow and heaviness is easily released to the Sun. Letting go – recycling into new life and inspiration.

Open Your Heart

You might even want to imagine that you can create a channel from your heart to the Sun. A channel where you can freely and easily release any toxicity you may have to the Sun. And in return, the positive life-force of the Sun gently cleanses, replenishes and restores you.

This channel you’ve created is here to REUNIFY you with your connection to the cosmos. It empowers you and fills you with the colors and vibrations of life that you need at this time.

Connect with Grace

Something else that’s needed is patience, a virtue that connects us with the grace and equanimity of the Soul. 

“Within the Self, the time of REUNITING is directly connected to your spiritual development. You should now renew your inner faith, in whatever way that has meaning for you.” ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

Sense The Beauty Around You

Use this Circle to help you remember a time when you were in a beautiful, calm place. Remember the “awe” you felt at that time. Once you find it, relax and bring the sense of the experience back into your memory. Adjust the volume of your senses. Take all the time you need.

“I bring my senses into balance.”

“I remember what it feels like to feel beauty.”

 

Now that you have accessed beauty, you have the necessary ingredients to get to the truth of the matter. This would be a good time to ask yourself a few questions:

“Am I heading in the right direction for positive change?”

“Am I investing in something that’s harmful to me?”

“Is there someone or something I shouldn’t trust?” 

“Am I ignoring an important relationship that needs help?”

“Am I willing to let an inspiring idea come in to help me?”

Plant the seeds in your heart for inspiration, natural solutions and true assistance.

Include the seeds for joy, freedom, balance and sustainable prosperity. Don’t forget practical things like common sense and focus. How about a roof over your head and healthy food on your table? Affordable, effective healthcare?

What other seeds do you need to plant? Make sure you keep planting them until you feel completely complete!

Now it’s time to close the door on all those old misuses of your time, attention and energies.

Closure for Mind Body Healing

“I close the door on any drain or strain on my time, space, attention or energy.”

 

Congratulations! You’ve just set the stage for a key inspiration that has the potential to REUNIFY you and your community. Be sure to take time to rest and relax. Take a walk or get out into nature if you can!

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.

“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. 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!

Feng Shui for Your Home

Using Feng Shui For Your Home with the I Ching to Assess Your Continuing Happiness in the New Paradigm ~

Feng shui for your home is very useful anytime you’re going through significant changes. That includes changes of the season.

Feng Shui for Your Home

“In order to avoid stagnation and degeneration in the current situation, a transforming change may be necessary.” ~ Hexagram #49 ADAPTING

“The object of your inquiry is in a state of disrepair…You are in the position to assume responsibility for a long-needed reform. Do it… The situation will develop new energy and inspiration once the problems are removed.~ Hexagram #18 REPAIR

The process of clearing and setting up the energy of your home helps you to optimize your chances for success in all areas of your life. However, some people don’t know that feng shui can also help you to correct instability and “take apart” destructive patterns that are causing you and your family harm. 

“Order can be brought to chaotic situations, Because you are now unusually familiar with the elements involved in the object of your inquiry, you can evaluate and arrange them in whatever way necessary to achieve your aim.” ~ Hexagram #64 BEFORE THE END

Once the imbalances are corrected in your environment, personal growth happens more easily and effectively. Your sense of timing improves, chaos is reduced and changes in life direction are supported.

This short game can help you evaluate whether or not your home is providing a safe and healthy environment that can easily support your happiness.

*In order to avoid STAGNATION, there’s an old feng shui recommendation that twelve objects be moved or rearranged in some way at the change of every season or during other times of significant change. Get a notepad to write on and see if you can find at least twelve objects that you can move, rearrange or remove as you go through this revealing game!

Simply gaze softly at the symbols while you consider the questions that accompany each of them. Doing so will help you to uncover hidden information about how your prosperity or sense of “home” is being impaired (it will also work in your office).

Transformation Game – Feng Shui for Your Home:

Begin by getting in the correct mindset to receive important information. Gaze softly at this symbol while you repeat the following affirmation for a minute or two:

“I ask my intuition to reveal hidden information about imbalances or interferences in my home that are causing me or my family harm.”

They say that intuition is easier when all of the senses are balanced. So relax with this next Circle and adjust the volume on your senses – some may be turned up too high and some too low. You can bring them into balance by adjusting the levels.

The opportunity to change a situation from STAGNATION to progress is at hand. It will not happen of its own accord. A strong and continuing sense of purpose is necessary to achieve and maintain the greatest possible heights of success. ~ Hexagram #12 STAGNATION

Slow down some more and become aware of your actual, physical home environment. Briefly review each room and remind yourself about what’s really important about the function of each room. What happens there and what purpose does that room serve for you and/or the family?

You might also want to think about how a change in the season might affect each room.

If your mind goes blank, or you’re having trouble accessing clear intuition, use this Circle to melt away any disharmony or resistance. It can help to imagine the room softening and moving around. Wait until the energy stabilizes.

Once you’ve briefly gone through each room and feel ready, move on to the questions below that will help you identify more specifics.

“Order can be brought to chaotic situations, Because you are now unusually familiar with the elements involved in the object of your inquiry, you can evaluate and arrange them in whatever way necessary to achieve your aim.” ~ Hexagram #64 BEFORE THE END

Question #1 Trust your initial response to the questions ~

“Are there pockets of negativity or STAGNATION collecting in my home?”

“If so, can I identify where they are located? Do I know what needs to be done to remedy them?”

If no, continue to Question #2.

Question #2

“Am I experiencing poor communication or lack of co-operation where I live?”

“If so, can I identify the source of where it’s coming from? Can I get an idea of what changes are needed?”

 Question #3

“Are there any objects or elements out of balance that are causing mental, emotional, financial or physical difficulties?”

“If so, can I identify how they can be brought into balance?”

“Does something need to be moved, reorganized or completely removed?”

Question #4

“Could I benefit from being more grounded and present in my own home?”

“If so, can I identify the source of what the problem is?”

“Does something need to be moved, reorganized or completely removed to help me be more grounded?”

Question #5

“Is there any interference with productivity?”

“If so, can I identify something that needs to be moved, reorganized or completely removed in order to help me be more productive?”

Question #6

“Is my health or prosperity struggling because of disharmony in my  environment?”

Does something need to be moved, reorganized or completely removed to restore harmony?”

Question #7

“Is there anything I need to know about my environment that is preventing me from heading in the right direction to accomplish my goals? Can I get a sense of what that is?”

“Is there anything I can add to enhance the love and light available in my home?”

“A change is occurring, whether in you own objectives or in the situation around you… By adapting to the realities around you at this time, you will find peace of mind and success.” ~ Hexagram #17 REPAIR

Question #8

“Is my environment safe and have adequate protection? Is there anything I need to do to be certain that it’s free from harmful or interfering energies?”

 

Question #9

You can use this Circle to review the feng shui for your home to see if you can come up with at least twelve items that can be moved, removed, or added to help accommodate the changes that you are currently experiencing.

Congratulations! You now have a lot more information about how feng shui for your home or office can be helpful in achieving your goals.

Office Feng Shui

How to Achieve Your Goals for Business Using Office Feng Shui ~

As your business changes and grows, it’s important to keep some fundamental principles about office Feng Shui in mind so that your goals for success are properly supported.

Rheanni LightwaterIn this article I’m going to share several basic issues and remedies I often use when working with clients who want to know how to set up their office or studio space for success. Then, just for some added fun and insight, we’ll also use some Intuitive Learning Circles™ to help you zero in on what your intuition says about the space you work in!


Principle #1: Productivity

A smart business owner or professional pays close attention to their office or workplace environment and uses proper input to increase productivity.

What are some of the things to think about? What would a Feng Shui expert ask you? Certainly, a reliable practitioner would want to find out if something about your office is keeping you from doing your best. It’s easy to get distracted by non-essential details. You can clarify that for yourself a bit by using the Mind Exercise below.

Take a break from your busy day, slow down and see your business environment as it is right now.

This Intuitive Learning Circle™ from Gifts from the Rainforest will help you slow down, tune into your intuitive senses and clarify what’s going on. Simply gaze softly at the Circle for a few moments with a soft gaze. Relax and allow your mind to to get still.

Use these positive affirmations while you take a few breaths:

“I slow down. I choose to be calm and centered.”

It often helps to imagine that everything is moving in slow motion. Once your mind has stopped chattering, you’ll be able to focus on your business priorities with greater accuracy.

“I know what my primary business goals are.”

 

Now, turn your attention to your actual, physical working environment as it is right now:

What is your overall impression?

Do you feel productive there? Do you feel comfortable?

Does anything distract you?

If so, make a note of whatever distracts you and we’ll come back to it later.

 

 

Principle #2 Grounding

A smart business owner makes sure that they feel grounded in their working environment.

If the space is not grounded, your success is being severely compromised. It’s wise to rectify this situation as soon as possible.

Here is another Intuitive Learning Circle™ that’s about being grounded. Use it in the same way you used the previous Circle, except this time, make sure both feet are on the ground. Remember to relax and gaze at the Circle with a soft focus!

“I am well grounded in the intentions I have for my business.”

Grounding

Now, ask yourself another set of questions: “Is this room grounded? Am I able to think clearly in my environment?

Do I easily get overwhelmed?”

If you’re having a problem here, it’s a really good idea to get the room grounded. You can either get professional help or you could try standing or sitting in the middle of the space and use this affirmation while you gaze quietly at the Circle above. “I am grounded in this space.”

I also use obsidian to keep spaces grounded here in the Southwest area of the United States. Find a good size rock and place it somewhere unobtrusive as close to the center of the room as is practical.

You may have you own favorite techniques for getting grounded. Go ahead and try them. You can confirm whether it’s worked or not by looking at the Grounding Circle above again and asking, “Is the space grounded now?”

If not, keep trying other techniques until the answer comes back positive. If you are having trouble getting grounded yourself, you can try one of my favorite Mind Exercises from SOS – Soul Oriented Solutions

Principle #3: Support

A smart business owner makes sure that their environment supports their intention.

If you own a restaurant, you’ll want it to have an atmosphere that suits the style of eating establishment you have in mind. The needs of a fast food deli, for instance, would be quite different from a place intended for fine dining. The same goes for every kind of business – if the atmosphere doesn’t “feel” right, it’s success will be compromised. That’s one reason why it’s usually a very good idea to keep your home office out of your bedroom. Usually sleeping well and business productivity don’t mix very well.

Sometimes it’s hard to know whether you’re on track, so here is another Intuitive Learning Circle™ to help you tune into the overall “feel” of your working environment.

As you look at this Circle, imagine your space again in your mind’s eye, then ask yourself these questions: 

“Am I feeling nurtured here? Do I feel stressed here? If so, when?”

“What is distracting me from productive activities that are in the best interest of my business success?”

Remember if there’s anything about your office feng shui that’s distracting you. Use this Feng Shui Mandala for Receptivity to relax and help you formulate the changes that would help you. Ask yourself: 

“What needs to change?”

Consider moving, clearing or re-organizing whatever is distracting you.

If you’re not feeling supported in your workplace, there could be many reasons. Again, calling in a professional is probably a good idea, however, if you enjoyed playing Office Feng Shui, you could find some remedies at our online store, Feng Shui Healing Arts.

Retrain Your Mind To Go For Joy

When you retrain your mind to go for “joy” rather than “perfection,” amazing things start to happen…

Retrain Your Mind to Go For Joy

Why does joy allude us? Because the mind is busy going for other things. Like being “right”, “desirable” or “perfect”.

A tremendous amount of our learning power is focused on fulfilling deadlines, trying to look good, prevent mistakes, avoid getting caught, make fantasies happen and be “right”.

Most of us are taught that we’re supposed to be perfect, so that’s what we’ve trained the mind to go for.

Retrain Your Mind - Let Go of "Being Perfect"But what does “perfection” mean? Whose definition of being perfect are we using? Our parents? Mom? Dad? Our boss? Our family? Religion? The media? All of these definitions are externally sourced and full of contradictions.

More often than not, “perfection” simply means doing what somebody else wants us to do. No wonder so many of us are overwhelmed, confused and unhappy!

In most cases, going for joy creates more joy – which would be much better. However, in some situations, it might be even more effective to go for “freedom”, “balance” or “sustainable prosperity.”

If you would like to experiment with this idea, you can go through the following game and see what happens to your mood and point of view!


Welcome to Learning in the New Paradigm – Mind Exercises to Retrain Your Mind to Go for Joy Rather than “Perfection.”

~ with Rheanni Lightwater, CHT, CKP

Rheanni Lightwater - Retrain Your MindThe Intuitive Learning Circles™ are a great tool to help you retrain your mind to successfully move away from the internal conflict that comes from having to be perfect. This short exercise will get you started. I’ve put it together to help you discover a way to refocus on internally sourced goals that are joyful and genuinely meaningful for you! All you have to do is gaze softly at the Circles while you contemplate the affirmations or questions that go with them.

An important note ~ 

The brain and body communicate through different channels when a part of you is crossed over the center of your body. As you go through the steps, cross and uncross a hand or foot over the midline of your body when you gaze at each Circle. Use a soft focus and breathe patiently. This will help you integrate your thinking more fully so that you can be more creative. Let any negative self-talk go by breathing through it.


Okay, so let’s begin…

Step One: In your current situation, who or what is defining “perfection” for you?

Perhaps it’s the media or something you learned at home or in school.

Wherever it came from, does that definition create joy for you? Is it creating more balance or freedom?

So, what are you actually asking your mind to accomplish?

 

Step Two: How much of your energy have you been sending to this definition?

If it were a percentage, what might it be?

10%? 20%? 50% or more?

Would you like to send that energy to create more joy in this situation instead?

 

Step Three: Imagine you can retrain your mind to reorganize itself around “joy,” rather than “perfection”.

Place the word “Joy,” “Balance” or “Freedom” in the center, open space of the Circle and soften your gaze. Relax. While you’re doing this, the Circle may seem to rotate, spin or even change colors. If that happens – go with it. Release control of the experience and let your energy re-arrange itself. Your new goal may turn into images, experiences, colors or sounds. Let it happen! You will know that the process is complete when the energy subsides.

You can get up and move around if you like. Take all the time that you need.

 

Step Four: Think about your situation again. What do you really want to accomplish?

 

Step Five: Take a moment and focus inwardly on what’s most important for you.

Chakra Healing - Third Eye Chakra

 

Step Six: How might you approach your situation differently now that you’re going for joy?

How is it different when you go for balance or freedom? What about sustainable prosperity?

 

Step Seven: Now that you’ve refocused your thoughts and energy on joy, take a break. Give your mind less to have to think about.

“I close the door on all that confusion. I give my mind a rest.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

Congratulations! Going for joy rather than perfection is a central concept that will help you to live and prosper in the New Paradigm of co-operation and sustainable prosperity.

Thank you for playing Retrain Your Mind to Go for Joy. Now is a good time to go for a walk and relax!

Finding Moderation In the New Paradigm

Are You Too Distracted or Putting Yourself in a Dangerous Position? Finding Moderation is the Key to Your Success.

Kuan Yin's Transformation GamesKuan Yin has been helping us through these I Ching Readings to transition from the old economic paradigm based on greed and fear to a new paradigm of co-operation and sustainable prosperity. Her advice springs from the I Ching, an ancient book of divination that follows the flow of the cosmos. Because of that, her advice and instruction comes from a different perspective than ours.

To help you better connect with her assistance, she uses the Intuitive Learning Circles ™ to communicate with you through meditation, affirmations and visualization. If you’re unsure about how to use the Circles, you can check out Exploring the Intuitive Learning Circles here >

Kuan Yin’s I Ching Readings and Transformation Games can help you to identify problems, change your focus to positive solutions, ground yourself and get in the present. Simply relax and gaze at the Circles while contemplating Kuan Yins words. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek.


Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for:

Hexagram # 15 – Finding Moderation

I Ching Hexagram #15 Finding Moderation

“Let’s use the analogy that describes this period of time to a massive highway system that has thousands of different freeways available for you to travel on – or not, depending on what you choose…

Many of those freeways are traveling on the I Ching energy of Hexagram #36 CENSORSHIP. The text of The Book of Change warns about being directly confronted with forces that threaten your inner conviction and the attainment of your goals. Although difficult, this situation can help you learn to accept times of evil:

‘If one attempts to aggressively deny or ignore evil, then evil is often nurtured in one form or another. Good and evil are as much a part of the cosmos as night and day. It is much easier to develop a sound character once evil is acknowledged and accepted as part of the world.’ ~The I Ching Workbook, R.L Wing

A great number of other freeways are moving in the flow of Hexagram #23 DETERIORATION. As one might guess, those who are traveling through these are having things fall apart and experiencing a lot of communication problems. If this is where you are at, The Book of Change warns against forging ahead with your plans. You will simply be advancing into #47 ADVERSITY or possibly even disastrous DANGER, #29. 

Luckily, there are also some freeways that are moving with the flow of MODERATION, Hexagram #15. ‘The predominant forces … are in the process of balancing extremes and harmonizing interests.’ ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

The ancient Chinese text description of MODERATION can be compared to the modern meme ‘everything in moderation’ where the best way to make progress is to disengage from extremes and opinionated attitudes and follow the guidance that comes from within. If you are able to do so, there will be improvement in whatever you undertake.

Finding Moderation and Following that Path

Generally speaking, MODERATION is the more advantageous flow to follow, however that’s admittedly difficult when there’s so much chaos. Karma that’s ready to be triggered is abundant because chaos is like that. For many people, soul contracts have been completed or need to be released because they’re probably either:

1. feeling threatened, at risk or censured,

2. caught in the chaos of things splitting apart or

3. seeking harmony and balance by letting go of extremes.

As you gaze at this Circle that accesses karmic seeds, see if you are currently experiencing one of these forms of interference. Ask yourself:

“Am I generally experiencing situation #1, 2, or 3?”

Maybe a mix of each depending on your mindset?

Whichever one it is, you can make your life easier by letting go of any karmic agreement that is complete – over and done with or that is causing you harm in any way.

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 Go So You Can Be Present

Use this Soul Contract Circle to help you identify and release the agreements. Simply gaze softly at the Circle while you use the affirmations. It can be helpful to imagine the agreements being pulled from the ground as you go through this process.

“I uproot any agreement to ignore, deny or support evil.”

“I let go of things that are falling apart or finished entirely.”

“I release patterns of behavior that support co-dependency, extreme, deception or elitism.”

Clear your inner garden of any noxious weeds that are interfering with your family, friend or business relationships. Include organizations you’ve been involved with, political agendas, completed projects, places you’ve lived, modes of transportation, communication issues, ways of doing business, etc.

By doing so, you free up a lot of energy and effort that’s tangled up with the way things used to be or the way you wish they were.

Because of the chaos involved, making any kind of reliable prediction is next to impossible. You’re going to need all the presence and energy you have to help you during times such as these. Gently look at the next Circle while you affirm these helpful affirmations:

“My new agreement is to stay in the present and deal with what is honestly.”

“I make choices that keep me on a positive path.”

“I let go of ____________. I prepare for ____________.”

 

“I make a choice to focus my energy on people and activities that are genuinely beneficial.”

 

“I decide to let go of harmful distractions and negative attachments. I send them to the Sun to be transformed.”

You probably feel a bit calmer now that you’ve let go. If you’re willing, there are several other decisions you could make that could really improve your situation. Let’s continue with a couple of extremes that might be making it hard for you to find and stay on the road to MODERATION:

Extreme #1: The 24/7 syndrome.

Here is the prime example, ‘Being busy = being important.’ You might want to let go of that, because this is a terrible time to overload yourself.

“I release any agreement to be perfect or superhuman.”

“I let go of the pressures I put on myself.”

“I release any agreement I have to overwork myself.”

“I decide that I’m okay the way I am.”

“It’s okay to slow down, catch my breath and relax.”

“It’s okay to make things easier and enjoy life.”

 

Extreme #2: The ‘if some is good, more is better’ extreme.

For example: The Sun is good, however too much Sun causes cancer. Butter is good, yet too much butter causes weight gain, etc. Another example is: ‘There are no limits. I want it all.’

“I let go of extremes and unrealistic behavior.”

“Healthy limitations and boundaries can benefit me.”

“I decide that being calm and stable are healthy qualities to nurture.”

“I am now finding moderation in my behavior.”

 

 

Extreme #3: The ‘too many choices, not enough time’ extreme.

Heading off into fifteen different directions can cause panic, overwhelm and poor planning. Multi-tasking will probably blow you out of finding MODERATION. If you want to succeed, stop and make a choice about what’s most important for you right now.

 

Now it’s time to dissolve mental and emotional patterns that pull you off track. Use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to identify and let go of  any societal or familial patterns that are still affecting you in a negative way. See them disappear as you send them to the Sun:

“I dissolve the destructive energy of this mindset and any connection I have ever had to it.”

 

Once the patterns are cleared, close the door to pathways that lead to trouble.

“All harmful pathways are sealed and healed.

I decide to get grounded and follow the path that’s most beneficial to me.”

For some people, finding MODERATION signifies an opportunity to go within and expel deep patterns of fanaticism within their psyche so that they can evolve and emerge from that pattern, much as a beautiful lotus emerges from the muck and mire at the bottom of a pond.

You can use this opportunity to plant new karmic seeds for MODERATION and any other useful qualities that you may need in the near or distant future.

Congratulations!

Once you begin to take responsibility for your own destiny you can bring order and new happiness into your environment!”

Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for:

Hexagram # 29 – Danger

Learning from Danger

I Ching Transformation Game - Learning from Danger

“There are times when none of our efforts to solve a problem are effective and the way out of DANGER is blocked. Often, all that you may do is wait. When that is the case, there are still things that you can do to become more aware of yourself by learning from DANGER

‘Frequent encounters with DANGER are a part of life. Beyond making you inwardly strong, familiarity with DANGER, like the near brush of death, can instill in you a profound awareness of the life force and the mysterious nature of the cosmos. Such heightened awareness can bring new meaning, determination. and richness into your life.’ ~The I Ching Workbook, R.L Wing

Generally, the text from Hexagram #29 talks about DANGER that exists in your immediate environment. Responding correctly is really about Right Action – knowing when and how to take action with clarity of mind. Sometimes it’s best to take minimal action or do nothing at all. Awareness and keeping your wits about you are really the keys.”

Learning from Danger – A Transformation Game

This Game uses the Intuitive Learning Circles™ to help you gain a deeper understanding of the dangers facing you. For example, you may know that something is wrong, and not be able to put your finger on what it is. This game can help you identify it.

Or

Your desires could be leading you into danger time and time again and you’re not learning from it. You can use this game to explore what that is about and see if there’s something you can do to transcend the habit.

Step One: Uncovering Awareness of the Danger

Gaze at this Circle that accesses unconscious, intuitive and instinctual knowledge about a danger you are facing now. Imagine that you can gather up that inner library of experiences and see what kind of Soul Resources you can come up with. Ask yourself:

“What is the real danger about?”

“Where is it and how is it affecting me?”

Take your time and let the information emerge. 

“How much harm is this situation causing for me and for others?”

Step Two: Seeing it Calmly and with Discernment

Let this Circle help you tune your senses to a comfortable level. They may be turned up too high, too loud or intense. Gaze softly at the symbol and breathe for a couple minutes to gather up your wits. Relax and bring your senses into balance. If it helps, you can use this affirmation:

“I calm down and see things as they really are.”

 

Step Three: Clarify the Right Action(s) to Take

Use this Circle to help you identify possible solutions that you can honestly take upon yourself without placing yourself in further, unnecessary danger.

“What is an effective action I can take?”

“When and how might I go about doing that effectively?”

“Are there other helpful actions I could take?”

You might want to make a note of the suggestions that come. Times of danger can be filled with distractions which can make it easy to forget. 

Step Four: Close the Doors to Actions that Escalate or Invite Further Danger.

Your unconscious mind knows what things are helpful and what things are harmful to your body, mind and spirit. Imagine that the harmful pathways in your mind are closing now. See them disappear, as if they were never there.

“All harmful pathways are sealed and healed.”

Congratulations on your newfound awareness about learning from danger!

“The time of DANGER can be especially good for inner development. By holding to fixed and virtuous ethics, by maintaining your inner vision and ideals, all things fall into a steady, tangible perspective. You will know your relationships to your environment, and in this way you can accomplish your aims. Although subjective, this perspective is now in accord with the problems facing you.” ~The I Ching Workbook, R.L Wing

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 you in the center!

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

“All holes are sealed and healed.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

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

Intuitive Reading with the Book of Change

How to use the Intuitive Learning Circles™ to consult with important books of divination like the I Ching or The Book of Change ~

The I Ching is an ancient book of divination that follows and predicts movements and energy flow in the cosmos. Intuitive readings that recognize the Tao encourage us to find our place in the cosmos and harmonize with it.

“To move with the tao (or gate through which all things move) is to be in a state of grace.”

Book of Change
Come into alignment with the Tao – the underlying principles of Nature.

One of the best things about The Book of Change is that it’s uniquely equipped to help you understand the nature of your circumstances in relation to the ebb and flow of nature itself.

This symbol helps your mind tune into information regarding the “Tao” or the natural flow of life, which is what the Book of Change is all about.

It’s easy to do, just relax and gently contemplate coming into alignment with the Tao.

 


Rheanni Lightwater – Intuitive Reading from the Book of Change

Rheanni Lightwater - Book of ChangeI Ching Workbook - R. L. WingIntuitive readers often say that it’s difficult to do a reading for yourself and that’s true. However, whenever I consult The Book of Change with the Intuitive Learning Circles™ I get very good results. With them, I am informed about key unconscious movements, concerns and decisions that need to be made within my psyche. For example, I often get forewarnings of unexpected or accidental encounters that I simply could not have been aware of on my own.

A simple sequence of Circles from Gifts from the Rainforest helps you frame a question or intention for an intuitive reading that you wouldn’t be able to formulate without a lot of experience. If you already have a particular question in mind or a choice that you’re considering, use it as a starting point.

This is the formula I use for insight into a variety of issues including health, timing and healing emotional dilemmas:


Activate Intuition

Begin by slowing down, so that you can get in better touch with the best intention for your reading. Gaze softly at this Intuitive Learning Circle™ for slowing down with an affirmation like:

“I slow down and bring my attention in, towards what’s truly important at this time.” 

 

Mind Body IntegrationContinue enhancing intuition by bringing your senses into balance. Some may be turned up too high and some may be too low. Relax and allow your eyes to rest gently on the Circle below.

Take some deep breaths and let your shoulders drop. Adjust the volume to your senses. Do that both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body.

 

While gazing softly at this next Circle, sort through your mind like you would sort through a pile of messy papers on your desk when you’re looking for something. You come across a really important piece of paper that you didn’t know was there. Use the Circle to help you find it and pull it out.

Clarify Intention

Move your attention to this next Circle and ask your gut:

“What do I need clarity about?”

Be patient and wait for information or an intention to emerge. Whatever comes up, make a note of it. Unconscious information often doesn’t make sense at first. Usually, it’s a general subject, possibly one that isn’t currently on your radar. Go with it and refrain from trying to force things or second guess yourself.

Or go to one of the Circles from Gifts from the Rainforest. Pick #1 – 49.

 

Continue your investigation. What concerns you about this issue?

Hopefully, by now more details are emerging from the unconscious mind and you’re more aware of them. If you sense an important Soul issue, go to a Circle from Soul Prayer Charts to help you know what it is. Pick #1-24.

Determine the Emotional Environment

Is there a particular emotion(s) that’s causing distress?

Are you holding that emotion towards yourself? Towards others or others to self?

Is there a decision about yourself that you need to change?

An attitude, compulsion, obsession, or phobia?

Choose An I Ching Hexagram

The symbol below is from SOS Soul Oriented Solutions and can be used to go through any list of possible choices where you want your Soul to help you find the opening to a solution and determine what process will help you the best. All you need to be is open and ask for true assistance. It’s especially good at helping you make a choice, fine tune your intuition and listen to your gut feelings.

In the case of the Book of Change, there are sixty-four hexagrams that might have useful information for you. So gaze at the SOS symbol and experiment with it. Remember that in this case, you’re looking for information or advice that will help you deal with the situation you just came up with.

What number between 1 – 64 comes to you first? Follow your inner guidance. If your mind is blocked or blank go here>

SOS - Soul Oriented Solutions

Whatever number comes to you, open your Book of Change and go to that Hexagram. You might need to read the whole commentary or just a portion of it. There are also what is called “changing lines” and you might be guided to read one of those. It could even be just one sentence!

Once you’ve read the advice, you may understand the message immediately or you might want to continue to get an even more detailed understanding.

Synchronicity

For example, perhaps you’d like more information about timing or how to synchronize your response in the most effective way.

 

This symbol is about timing and synchronization. Let your mind gently contemplate the symbol. Remember, no forcing! The more relaxed you are, the better this works.

 

 

 

The whole point of consulting the I Ching is to help you see your situation clearly so that you’re able to make an effective plan for handling it. As you look at the Circle below, ask yourself: “In this situation, what is the best timing for effective action?”

or “How long will this period of time go on?”

 

“Is there any danger present now?”

“If so, will it pass on it’s own or should I do something?”

 

“What can I do specifically to help myself?”

“Is there a number in the I Ching that can help me with that?”

If a hexagram number between 1-64 comes to you, go to that hexagram and do what you did earlier – read the portions that come up as important. If a number doesn’t come up, continue on with the question below.

 

“What do I need to do now?”

and “How might I go about doing it?”

You may get a clear answer through the Circle itself or you could be given another hexagram number and/or changing line. It may be the same or it may be different. Keep following this line of questioning until you feel satisfied with your answers. Write them down so you don’t forget.

 

Congratulations!

Once you’re finished with your reading from the Book of Change, be sure to thank your unconscious mind and yourself for making the time to take care of yourself.
