Intuitive Reading from the I Ching or Book of Change: Balance Conflicting Energies.
In this intuitive reading, Soul Resources offers a variety of SOS formulas and Transformation Games using the Intuitive Learning Circles and the I Ching to help us balance conflicting energies in the New Paradigm.
The I Ching
Understanding the Larger Picture ~
When a structure is falling apart, it’s natural for the people caught in it to cling onto something they think will stabilize them. However, if they are actually grabbing onto a part of the structure that’s teetering on the brink, or has already fallen apart, they will only make the situation worse.
You may not be aware of how you’re clinging to your own past. It may seem, in your mind, that because things used to work in a certain way, they still do. You are certain of it! You’re convinced that what you’re holding onto is real and if anyone questions that, you grip even harder. This is a classic survival response and completely understandable.
You may feel safer for a moment, because your anger and righteous indignation give you energy and help you to feel more powerful. Yet, if you continue in your mistake – if you double down on an untruth – the difficulties and karmic backlash you experience will be far greater.
This is the elevated level of confusion and CONFLICT the world’s social and political affairs are currently navigating through.
The I Ching: Balance Conflicting Energies.
The I Ching energy has dropped into the energy of Hexagram #6 CONFLICT and will likely continue into June of 2023.
Here are relevant excerpts from the original text:
“In your heart you are certain that your proposed path is correct. You feel yourself to be in the right, and therefore you proceed with complete confidence. In fact, you are acting in accordance with your own nature and the dictates of the times. This path you have chosen, however, will lead you into a state of CONFLICT.
Obstacles and opposition will rise up in front of you, and there is no way to circumvent them. Whether these are inner obstacles or external oppositions, they represent a formidable countermovement, since, from their point of view, they too are correct. This CONFLICT will cause you to stop and reconsider your original premise.
It would have been wise to cautiously weigh all of the possible difficulties and oppositions at the beginning of your endeavors. Such careful considerations are the only way to end debilitating CONFLICT which can bring your efforts to a standstill. As it is, you cannot engage in confrontation with your adversaries, for this would lead to misfortune. All such aggressive or cunning strategies will come to evil.
In questions of power or politics, it would be in your best interests to place the CONFLICT before an impartial authority who can make an unprejudiced decision. In this way you can bring discord to a halt before it becomes injurious…The need for an inner adjustment yielding a more harmonious outlook is indicated.”
“If you engage now in forceful CONFLICT, it is possible you will emerge victorious. However, you will have created a situation of unending contest. Again and again, your position will be challenged. Such triumphs are ultimately meaningless.” ~ Hexagram #6 CONFLICT, The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing
The Major Arcana Card for 2023 is #VII: The Chariot
The basic meanings for The Chariot card are: forward momentum, action or progressive activity through the balancing of opposing forces.
The image of the charioteer suggests that you be the drivers (mind) in charge of your own vehicle (body) and that you steer with the long view in mind (spiritual). Through determined effort and willpower The Chariot inspires you to take courage as you embark on our journey.
On the reverse side, it could also be a warning that you’re getting distracted by the CONFLICT going on around you and it’s causing you to go off in the wrong direction.

Staying Positive in a Sea of Negativity ~
Whenever a particularly challenging I Ching Flow comes into prominence, Kuan Yin reminds me to “follow the middle road” or the road of MODERATION – that is the path that is guided from within.
“In difficult times, it’s usually best to move with the flow of MODERATION, Hexagram #15, where ‘The predominant forces … are in the process of balancing extremes and harmonizing interests.’ ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing
The ancient Chinese text describes finding MODERATION as the best way to make progress amidst conflict. The suggestion is to disengage from extremes or opinionated attitudes and then follow the guidance that comes from within instead. In almost any situation, if you are able to walk the middle road between extremes, there will be improvement in whatever you undertake.
The Chinese Zodiac –
2023 is the Year of the Yin Water Rabbit: Jan. 22, 2023 – Feb. 9, 2024.
Perhaps we can call on Rabbit’s beneficial qualities which are: Docile. Fertile. Tender. Quiet. Gentle. Cautious and Considerate.
Her fertility and connection with women’s health is legendary and she knows from experience how fear and fight or flight can keep you stuck in hole when there’s seemingly no way out.
If you’re feeling stuck in your own rabbit hole, listen to Rabbit’s kind advice:
1. “Are you by catastrophising? Sometimes things are bad enough – no need to make them worse.
2. “Even if things are falling apart, you can stay empowered by stepping back and getting perspective from your Soul.”
3. “It can be good to spend time extra time with yourself to process unfinished business and reconnect fragmented parts of your Essence and energy. “
Soul Resources Offers Emotional Support for Your Journey:
As as always, Kuan Yin has offered her help and assistance through a specially chosen collection of Transformation Games, Mind Exercises and Self-care Formulas. This year, she is advising us balance conflicting energies through special cooperative arrangements with Plant and Animal Totems from Gifts from the Rainforest. She says, ” “It is much easier to do the right thing when you are in good company. Following good examples will lead you to success.”

Transformation Games and Mind Exercises ~
1. Let Go of Trying To Control DETERIORATING Situations.
If you have a tendency to deal with situations that are falling apart with an attitude of ‘I’m going to fix this’ or ‘I need to stop what’s happening,’ you will actually give the situation more fuel, prolong it and maybe even escalate it. This Transformation Game will help you learn how to let go and let Nature take its course.

Following the Middle Road Will Help Us Find Our Way ~
“Despite the mild balance that is reached in MODERATION, it may be necessary to take forceful action to accomplish your aims. This should not be done with a boastful display of power, but with firm, decisive and objective action. There will be improvement in whatever you undertake.” ~ Sixth Changing Line, MODERATION, The I Ching Workbook by R. L. Wing

9. Advanced Chakra Healing. 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.”
