Do You Feel Overwhelmed About What’s Next? Finding Moderation is the Key to Staying On Your Path.
Kuan Yin has been helping us to transition from the old economic paradigm based on greed and fear to a new paradigm of equality, co-operation and sustainable prosperity. Her advice about finding moderation springs from the I Ching, an ancient book of divination that follows the flow of the cosmos. Because of that, her insight comes from a different perspective than ours.
Kuan Yin’s 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
“In times of difficulty and danger, 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 chaos. 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.
Finding Moderation and Following that Path ~
As a general rule, MODERATION is the most sensible flow to follow, especially in the midst of a transition this significant. Unpreferred karma (cause and effect) is just waiting to be triggered and must be dealt with in one way or the other. For most people, one of these scenarios is probably happening:
- Falling into a downward spiral of mental, emotional, physical and/or spiritual health.
- Experiencing a lot of rebellion and refusal to change.
- Getting pulled backwards into regressive and harmful patterns.
- Pulling oneself together into a centered position of empowered authority.
Initial Evaluation: As you softly gaze at this Circle that accesses karmic seeds, see if you’re currently experiencing one or more of these situations. Ask yourself:
“Am I generally experiencing situation #1, 2, 3 or 4?”
It could easily be a mix, depending on your mindset and what stage of the karma you’re living through.
Whichever one it is, you can make your life easier by letting go of old agreements or karma that’s over and done with.
To Each Their Own
It’s also especially important, at this time, to make sure you aren’t taking on anyone else’s karma. In times of increased violence and unrest, it’s common for people who want to avoid responsibility to systemically “scapegoat” by dumping their problems and the karma associated with it onto others. Emotionally, this happens through shame, blame, intimidation and playing the pity card. Spiritually, it happens through apathy, indifference or complicity towards degenerate morality. Physically and mentally, it happens by taking part in harmful decisions and actions and then denying responsibility for their part in them.
Most people who take karma on for others are either:
- feeling guilty and stuck because they are part of a situation, but are taking on more than their part of the responsibility
- unconsciously organizing their life around the problem
- compulsively fueling it with their energy and attention, or
- internalizing it (taking it personally).
When we buy into these behaviors, we are inadvertently preventing karma from being properly delivered to its rightful recipients.
To help you avoid this trap and stay on the middle road, use this symbol with the affirmations to set things right:
“I let go of my attachment to harmful energy, either on an individual or a collective level. I let go to maintain an effective level of protection.”
I create resiliency and autonomy.”

Let Go of Harmful Karmic Agreements So You Can Be Present and Regain Balance.
Use this Soul Contract Circle to help you identify and release the agreements. Simply gaze softly at the Circle while you use the affirmations.
“I let go of any karmic agreement that is complete – over and done with or that is causing me harm in any way.”
“I let go of harmful agreements associated with the old paradigm.” (extremes, greed, intolerance, co-dependence, pressure, dishonesty, people pleasing, etc.)
I decide to slow down to prepare for ________ and take care of ________.”
This is a good opportunity to unlock yourself from any outdated intentions or plans that are blocking your ability to ADAPT to the New Paradigm. Check agreements and intentions with family, friends or business relationships. Include organizations you’ve been involved with – religious institutions, political agendas, completed projects, places you’ve lived, modes of transportation, communication issues, ways of doing business, etc.
“I disengage from out-dated or harmful intentions from the old paradigm.”
Unearth Old Mental and Emotional Garbage.
Use this chart to uproot unconscious cultural conditioning that keeps you stuck in the regressive attitudes and expectations of the old paradigm. Imagine you can free up and uproot your energy from wherever it may have gotten planted.
Make A New Decision.
It’s time to get out of jail. Decide to create a sustainable future by finding moderation for yourself and getting back into balance with Nature.
“I am guided by the light of Divine Source within.”
“I make choices that align me with my Soul’s path and purpose.”
What other decisions would help?
Recalibrate Your Energy.
Devote your energy to living in alignment with your true Nature and the World.
“I exist and reclaim my connection with Spirit through my heart.”
“I relax and allow my energy to recalibrate. I actualize my highest good.”
Invoke Protection and Clarity of Mind:
“I close down all invasive energy channels from the past, present or future.”
“My mind is open and clear to receive generative life force.”
Refocus on Your Priorities.
Visualize what’s truly important to you in the center open space of this Circle.
“I direct my life force towards truly beneficial activities and situations.”
Be sure to include fun, joy and restful relaxation!
Support Yourself with the Appropriate Nourishment.
“I seek out healthy nourishment. I nurture my body, mind and spirit in alignment with my true nature.”
Are there any herbs, teas, vegetables or fruits that would be especially helpful to you now?
Close the Door on Unnecessary Suffering.
Finish this part of the game by closing the door on harmful activities, agendas and pathways that lead back to the old paradigm. Take all the time you need. There are probably a lot of them.
“All doors and pathways are sealed and healed.”
“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”
Welcome to the Middle Road! You probably feel much more balance. Go back to the Initial Evaluation for the game and check to see if anything has been cleared.
There are several other decisions that could really improve how you’re dealing with your situation. If you feel incomplete, you can continue with a few extremes that might be making it hard for you to find and stay on the road to MODERATION:
Extreme #1: The 24/7 workaholic syndrome.
Here is the prime example, ‘Being busy = being important and having purpose.’ You might want to let go of that, because this is a terrible time to base your self-worth on external expectations.
“My purpose comes from my Soul. I let go of unrealistic expectations.”
“I understand that my job is there to support me, not the other way around. I am worth and my well-being is part of the exchange.”
Extreme #2: The ‘there are no limits’ syndrome.
For example: The Sun is good, however too much Sun causes cancer. Butter is good, yet too much butter causes weight gain, etc. Another social meme that explains the mindset is: ‘The sky is the limit. I want it all now, so I should be able to have it all now!’
“I send a laser beam to break up the group attitude of perfectionism, entitlement and impatience. I dissolve self-destructive behavior.”
“I decide that healthy, MODERATE limits are enhancing my creativity.”
“I empower satisfaction, appreciation and tolerance. I patiently follow my inner guidance.”
Extreme #3: The ‘I’m not doing enough/doing too much” dichotomy.
Finding MODERATION means doing just the right amount. Think Goldilocks -not too much and not too little… just right. If things seem too slow for you, suddenly heading off into fifteen different directions will probably backfire on you badly. That’s because panic, overwhelm and poor planning usually leads to poor results at best, and chaos at worst. If you’re going too fast, stop and slow things down. Thoughtful consideration about what you really need is what’s most important now.
“What do I really need right now? What will help me do that?”
Now it’s time to clean up mental and emotional patterns that are related to these patterns and have been pulling you off track. Use this symbol for destructive blueprints to identify and dissolve self-delusion or any societal or familial patterns that still affect you in a negative way. See them disappear as you send them to the Sun:
“I dissolve the destructive energy of these mindsets and any connection I have ever had to them.”
“I dissolve ___________________.”
A lot of those “extremes” may still be attached to hidden pockets in your magnetic field. Expel them with this chart and mend any damage that may have occurred.
This is a good time to check for and release entanglements.
Once your field is repaired, close the door to pathways that lead to extremes and danger.
“All harmful pathways are sealed and healed.
I am finding MODERATION in accordance with my highest good.”
For many people, finding MODERATION signifies an opportunity to go within and expel deep patterns of fanaticism within their psyche so that they can evolve and arise from that pattern, much as a beautiful lotus arises from the muck and mire at the bottom of a pond.”
Now that you’ve made choices about finding moderation you can bring order and new happiness into your environment!”
