The I Ching 

I Ching Workbook - R. L. WingThe original intent of the I Ching was based on an Eastern philosophy of observation and marking changes in natural and human events. Through many centuries and contributions from shamans and master teachers, including Lau Tzu and Confucius, the Book of Change was developed into a full philosophy for applying beneficial human conduct to varying circumstances. The Art of Feng Shui is part of that philosophy.

Adapting to Change - Year of the Rat
What have you learned? Take the Quiz…

The Year of the Yang White or Golden Rat  in the Chinese Zodiac will be ending on February 12, 2021. Hooray!

During this fast moving year, the collective karma for illness, lack of personal responsibility and unhealthy patterns of neglect have been fully activated and they’re not just going to go away because we’re in a New Year. Hopefully we’ve learned something from it!

The animal coming in is the auspicious Yin Metal OX, symbolizing strength, hard work, honesty and positivity. Concerns during the transition continue to revolve around keeping your environment clean, your thinking clear and your heart strong. 

December 27th, 2020 – January 12th, 2021 Intuitive Reading from the I Ching or Book of Change – Adapting.

Kuan Yin has been helping us through these readings and games to transition from the old paradigm based on greed and fear to a New Paradigm of co-operation, equality and sustainable prosperity. Some say that this is the official start of the Aquarian Age.

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.

Adapting to Change - Todays Intuitive Reading“Since the Jupiter/Saturn Conjunction on the Solstice, you have been ADAPTING to change on many levels. A change of season. A change in your collective mindset. A change that follows the flow of the Universe.

On the physical plane, you have been separated from the usual common activities that you hold dear. This sequestration is a requirement – not by some political agenda or conspiracy, but by the forces of Nature, whose will is being carried out regardless of how you feel about it!

Take heart and be patient. If you’ve been looking upon it as unfair, you are making the situation more difficult than it has to be. 

In your seclusion, you have had many opportunities to reform yourselves and ADAPT to sweeping change in fundamental ways. It is now time to take action on those changes if you genuinely want to change the direction of your collective society. 
“The process of letting go can be difficult, but if we refuse to let go of something that’s already left, we are courting disaster.”

The path that Humanity has been on is filled with dead ends, tangles and irreconcilable differences. You may say, “the path can be altered.” To that, the Universe replies, “the path itself is untenable and can no longer be supported.” You must change the path you’re traveling on and the time is now.

Let me say it again. The path your society has been traveling on is a dead end. 
The good news is that a new path has opened, is taking form and available to ground in. It promises to be a rough transition, but not impossible.
This is a vulnerable time and whether you feel ready or not, you are being called upon to ADAPT to this new path and energy in significant ways. If you are choosing patience, courage and caution, your journey will go much easier.”

The Transformation Games and Self-care Formulas listed at the bottom of this Reading are put together to help us as we are ADAPTING to Change.

Here is the I Ching text for Hexagram #17 ADAPTING, as translated by R.L. Wing:


“When autumn approaches, all of life that continues to survive begins an adaptation to the season. The pelts of animals begin to thicken in anticipation of the winter, while the seeds of plants scatter themselves in autumn winds to await the spring. The bark of the tree increases to protect itself from the cold, while insects may burrow deep inside to hibernate. By ADAPTING to the forces, life is protected as it rests and restores itself for new activity.

ADAPTING is knowing when to act and when to rest, when to speak and when to be silent. The nature of this hexagram is compared to the time of autumn when activity ebbs and rest begins. This is not a restraint, for there is no stress involved. It is instead a peaceful, accepting frame of mind willing to adjust to the existing forces. You should now concern yourself with doing the best you possibly can under the circumstances. Leave the control of the situation to others. Even if you feel you possess the strength to alter events, it is in your best interests to remain low. True power lies in serving others, and with such behavior comes progress and success.

In worldly matters, only leaders who adapt their vision to the sentiments of society will be followed. If their ideals are too far from the popular mainstream of reality, if they are not ADAPTING their product or service in the interests of the times, then following them can lead to danger. However, if their goals are harmonious with the times, you may commit yourself to their leadership. When you follow another, you may relax and restore yourself.

Try to be flexible in your social and personal relationships and, if necessary, subordinate yourself. It is correct to adapt to the situation presented now, for this is the only way that there will be favorable progress. Do not waste your energies struggling against the predominant forces. Instead, make your relationships as rewarding as possible by ADAPTING yourself to the current mood.

Rid yourself of old prejudices and opinions that may be controlling your behavior and holding you back. If your goals and principles are not consonant with those of your society, then you must make an adjustment in yourself. Your progress now depends upon the reality of your milieu. You may live by your own rules in your own home, but once outside, you must adapt. By ADAPTING to the realities around you at this time, you will find peace of mind and success.

“You will find yourself parting ways with former inferior elements in your life as you make contact with worthwhile persons or ideals. By firmly following the superior path* you will find what you are looking for, while your strength of character will greatly benefit.” ~ Hexagram #17 ADAPTING, The I Ching Workbook by R. L. Wing

*The “superior path” means a path of MODERATION, guided by following your own inner worth and wisdom.

Chakra Healing and Clearing ~

Recommended Transformation Games and Mind Exercises to Keep You Moving with the Flow, Rather than Against it.

Because the chakras react to and reflect other subtle energy systems, an imbalance in one of the seven Primary Chakras is usually an indicator of a deeper imbalance affecting many people. Therefore, we’re using the Primary Reiki Chakra Keys to help you identify what needs correction and bring new meaning to the old axiom: “When I heal myself, I help to heal the world.”

Directions: Gaze at each Circle and ask: “Is this chakra balanced?” If the answer is no, click through to the game or exercise and see if it helps.

The healing recommended on this level is associated with the Root Chakra. In order to move into the New Paradigm, we need ways to address the collective karma that is at the source of our collective confusion.This Transformation Game will help.
