Transformation Games - Finding ModerationKuan 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

Todays Intuitive Reading - 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 confusing extremes or opinionated attitudes and 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 wake of our transition into a new paradigm. Contradictory mindsets and karma (cause and effect) have been triggered and must be dealt with in one way or the other. Most people are navigating through one or another of these general karmic patterns:

      1. Falling into a downward spiral of mental, emotional, physical and/or spiritual health.
      2. Stuck in rebellion, apathy or an obstinate refusal to change. 
      3. Getting scattered or sucked back into regressive patterns from the past.
      4. Accepting the difficulties and learning how to manage their new circumstances effectively.
      5. Moving with ease and grace into the new energies of the New Paradigm.

Initial Evaluation: As you softly gaze at this Circle, see which of these patterns you are currently experiencing. Ask yourself:

“Am I generally experiencing pattern #1, 2, 3, 4 or 5?”

It could easily be a mix, depending on your mindset and what stage of the karma you’re living through.

“Do I really want to utilize that mindset?”

Regardless of what’s happening, you can make your life easier by letting go of old agreements or karma that’s over and done with.

First, Let’s Address Confusion that’s Caused by Collective Shock

Let’s face it. The past few years have been filled with one shock after another. Give yourself and others a break by realizing that you might be caught in a reactive pattern because you’ve received so many shocks to your system. See what happens if you look at this Circle and relax for a minute or so. Imagine that the unpreferred behavior is melting away like ice melting under the light of the Sun.

You may find that your attraction to that particular mindset could just melt away as well!

To Each Their Own

It’s especially important, at this time, to make sure you aren’t taking on anyone else’s karma. In times of increased unrest and confusion, it’s common for people who want to avoid responsibility to systemically scapegoat others by dumping their problems and karma onto whoever will accept the blame.

Most people who take the blame 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 working itself out naturally, in the way it needs to.

To help you avoid this trap and set things right, by using this symbol with the affirmations to release attachments to destructive behavior:

“I let go of attachments and blame. I detach from sticky, harmful energies.”

I create resiliency and autonomy.”

Like a healing balm, imagine that a loving coat of peace and comfort is pouring down over you.

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 am no longer required to _____________, ___________ or ______________.”

“I let go of harmful agreements associated with the old paradigm.” (extremes, greed, intolerance, co-dependence, pressure, dishonesty, people pleasing, etc.)

This is a good opportunity to unlock yourself from any outdated intentions or plans that are blocking your ability to ADAPT to a New Paradigm built on equality, co-operation and sustainable prosperity.

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.”

What intentions would you like to hold for yourself instead?

Unearth Old Emotional Garbage and Karmic Patterns.

Use this chart to uproot mental and emotional patterns that 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 old channels of ___________________.”


“I close the door on old, hurtful, harmful patterns.”

Make A New Decision.

It’s time to get off the fence about mindsets that have been hurting you. What would you like to decide about your future? Here’s a couple of suggestions:

“I decide to be guided from within.” 

I decide to slow down to prepare for ________ and take care of ________.”

“I support the choices that align me with my Soul’s path and purpose.”

Are there other decisions that would help?

Recalibrate Your Energy.

Devote your energy to living in alignment with your true Nature and the World.

“I relax and allow my energy to recalibrate to actualize my highest good.”

“I exist and am empowered to ________, ________ and  ________.”

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 You Energy on Your Priorities.

Visualize what’s truly important to you in the center open space of this Circle.

“I consciously direct my life force towards truly beneficial activities and situations.”

Be sure to include fun, joy and restful relaxation!

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 unhealthy patterns. Take all the time you need. There are probably a lot of them.

“All doors and pathways that lead to confusion 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 letting go of a few extremes that might be making it hard for you to find and stay on the road to MODERATION:

Extreme #1: The need to be liked and approved of by others.

Here is the prime example, ‘Being liked = 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 worth comes from within. I let go of busy distractions.”

“I build my relationships on sincerity from the heart, not from a need to impress. I am worthy as I am and so are others.”


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 have clarity about what’s actually appropriate for me, in the here and now, in alignment with my Soul.

“I decide that healthy, MODERATE limits enhance my creativity.”

“I let go of other people’s expectations of me. 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 that you’ve made choices about finding moderation you can bring order and new happiness into your environment!”

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.”
