Are You Having Trouble Adapting to Success Because of Old Conditioning from Your Past?
You might be able to clear limitations faster and simpler than you think!
Kuan Yin has been helping us through these Transformation Games to transition from the old paradigm based on greed and fear to a New Paradigm of co-operation, equality and balanced prosperity. This game “Adapting to Success” 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.
Kuan Yin’s 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 # 17: Adapting to Success
“If you sincerely insist upon the very best, the chances are that you will get it. Set your sights high. Good fortune.” ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing
If you look around you right now, you may realize that most everything you see has been influenced by the tastes and tendencies that began in your childhood.
In your adult life, you will need to expand your imagination to find a new way to create the happiness you desire.
Check In: Are You Tuning Into the Kind of Emotional Energy That Will Take You Where You Really Want to Go?
Sometimes people have been conditioned so deeply to be afraid or negative, they aren’t really sure what to do when things are going well. The way you view yourself and what you think you’re capable of is colored by habitual behaviors learned in early love relationships as well as childhood experiences. You may simply be dealing with an old program or you could be struggling with more serious entanglements with hatred and other destructive tendencies.
Regardless of how it came to be, there is a simple way to change the emotional energy you’re tapping into using these Intuitive Learning Circles with your imagination!
Step One: Adapting to Success Begins with Awareness
Think about how things were communicated to you when you were little. Use this symbol to help you tap into the problem so that you can clear it out. Ask yourself:
“Is there a pattern of unhappiness or dysfunction that’s coming to the surface for me now? If so, is it related to family, society, career, religious upbringing or an old relationship?
The fact that it’s coming up could mean that you’re ready to ADAPT to a healthier mindset and REFORM how you’re doing things. Is that the case here? If you’re not ready, are you willing to respect your healing process and step back?
Step Two: Examine Fixated Thoughts and Beliefs
Childhood memories can often bring up a lot of confusing and conflicting information. That’s important because what you believe about life, you awaken around you. Let this symbol for clearing out shock and fixations help you sort things out a little. Relax and gaze softly at the symbol while you breath deeply both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body. Once the energy around the symbol calms down, you will find that you’ve calmed down as well!
Step Three: Slow Down and Clarify What Success Means For You Now
Even if you aren’t ready to clear the energy, you may be able to use your awareness in some other way to benefit you. For example, do you need to protect yourself in some way? Do you need a boost of self-confidence? Would it be good to take a few breaths and slow down? Would some movement be helpful? Gaze at the Circle from Tree Sloth with soft eyes and ask yourself:
“What does adapting to success mean to me in this situation?”
Notice how you’re reacting to that question, then continue your inquiry.
“What’s really important here? What will help me?
Am I just getting sucked into an old habit?”
Make notes. Your responses are important.
Step Four: Access Your Inner Wisdom
Empower yourself to follow your own advice. Let this Circle for Old Sol help you come up with the very best scenario that you can imagine.
“What is the very best thing I could ask for?”
Step Five: Recalibrate Your Energy for Empowerment
Let this symbol help you connect deeply with your heart center. While you contemplate it, affirm that you exist and that your spirit can empower your highest good.
Step Six: Clarify What Would Genuinely Be Helpful
In the New Paradigm, we are coming to the realization that many things we used to think of as “helpful” actually were not or would not be now. Use Mermaid Medicine to help you sort through any watery emotional confusion about what is actually needed. Ask this question for more clarification:
“How can I genuinely be of service to myself and others in this situation?”
Step Seven: Activate Your Heart Center
Tune into the wisdom of your heart. It will let you know whether you’re on track or not. When you’re ready, write down your intention or request, stated in the affirmative, in present tense and in your own words. Keep it simple and easy to remember…
Take all the time you need to really let those words resonate with your heart center.
Keep playing with it until it feels right and aligned.
Step Eight: Detach and Heal Old Patterns from the Past
Give yourself a moment to imagine a loving coat of peace and comfort is pouring down over you. This medicine is like a healing balm that melts away attachments to the past and mends all wounds.
Be sure to imagine that both crossed and uncrossed.
Step Nine: Raise Your Energy
Use the lighter, quicker generative life force of the New Paradigm to help you process your emotions and bring your request into being.
“I close down heavy, harmful energy channels from the Status Quo.”
“I am open and clear to utilize generative life force.”
“I adapt to the positive flow of chi’ available in the New Paradigm
to the best of my ability.”
“I connect to the new, life affirming channels of communication.”
Step Ten: Seal Energy Drains
Make sure your physical energy isn’t getting drained or that you aren’t getting sucked into a toxic habit or pattern from the past. Leave behind harmful habits and energy drains:
“I deconstruct old habits and close down toxic energy drains.”
“I shut them down completely.”
Once they’re closed down, use Fly to find where the voids are and fill them with loving, life affirming energy!
“I fill in the leftover void with healthy, life affirming energy.”
Note: If you’re a Reiki practitioner, this is a great time to beam Distant Healing into the Circle!
Step Eleven: Balance Your Perception
Relax some more and consciously bring your senses into balance. You don’t have to keep going back to any old, uncomfortable places any more. You are in the here and now.
Affirm to yourself:
“My senses are balanced.”
“My emotions are calm.”
“I’m perceiving my intention clearly, accurately and honestly.”
Then, imagine your intention as you requested it. See it, hear it, taste it, smell it and feel it as specifically as you can.
If you’re having trouble imagining anything or your mind is going blank, you have probably accessed an inner conflict. Gaze softly at this Circle, relax and let the lines get all wavey.
“I release all the conflicts I have around this.”
Continue to breathe while you gently release the conflict(s). Once the energy calms down, you will either know what you want or know what to do to help you get there.
What is the best thing to do next?
For example, you could go back to Step Four* and ask the question again until your request becomes clear or you could Retrain Your Mind To Go for Joy.
Congratulations! You now know what the pattern is and how you would like it to change. This is an important first step in the process of ADAPTING to success.”
If you are a Level Three student, there are several other steps you could take that would really improve how you handle success and empower your transition to the New Paradigm.
