Transformation Game: Learning How To Change in a Changing World
If you’re like most of us, you’re probably going through a surreal period of rapid and sudden changes in your life. You might feel immobilized, or frustrated about how to change effectively when so much of “normal” life is gone. Or you might be resisting the whole situation with every fiber in your body!
The I Ching or Book of Change talks about the importance of being flexible and knowing how to change in many of the 64 Hexagrams that teach us how to go with the flow of Life.
In Hexagram #49 CHANGING, the ancient text states:
“…the time of CHANGING suggests that although you may not know what to do, you know that something must be done.”
Do You Know How To Change with the Changes or Are You Stuck in the Old?
You can discover how to change more gracefully by going through this Transformation Game associated with the I Ching Hexagrams #49 CHANGING and #51 SHOCKING. By taking the time to go within, you can gain a deeper understanding of what the resistance is about. Not only that, you can find the motivation to change how you’re responding in a more positive way!
Directions: Simply gaze at the Circle while contemplating the positive affirmations. Breathe deeply and allow yourself to relax as much as possible.
“I focus them to be present and aware of my environment.”
“I use them to notice harmful thoughts or energies so that I can let them go.”
“I focus on actions that benefit my health and happiness.”
Once you feel ready, see if you can slow down and let yourself focus on one thing at a time.
“I continue to relax and breathe while my thoughts slow way down.”
Gently, bring your awareness to a specific area of life that is changing very quickly. What do you notice? You might want to make note of some of the impressions you get.
Now you’re ready to go through the rest of the game in the same way by asking yourself the questions while you gaze softly at the accompanying Circle. Take your time, the answers might not come right away. The Circles are helping your mind to clear away mental and emotional clutter.
“In this particular situation, am I changing with the changes?”
“Am I stuck on something? What is the concern?”
Whatever you’re stuck on, you could deal with it easily using this Circle that clears shock, resistance and fixated thinking.
Imagine that you can use the Circle like a bull’s eye to dissolve, melt or send a laser beam to break up any “hard thoughts” or fixations you may be experiencing.
An important note about Mind Body Integration ~
The brain and body communicate through different channels when a part of you is crossed over the center of your body. As you work with the Circles, cross and uncross a hand or foot over the midline of your body. Use a soft focus and breathe patiently. This will help you access your resistances more fully so that you can release more. Let any negative self-talk go by breathing through it.
Feel free to move at anytime in any way to help you let go!
Continue with your investigation about how to change…
“Am I taking anything personally?”
You can usually tell if you’re internalizing something because you’ll start to experience physical, mental, emotional or even spiritual symptoms.
If that’s happening and you have an updated copy of The Essential Human, you might want to go through the Emotional Corrections on pages 97 – 101 to help you disengage from taking this situation so personally. You can use this positive affirmation:
“I stop taking this personally and open up to more positive ways of dealing with this particular situation.”
Imagine that you can release any old agreements, assumptions or obligations that are keeping you stuck. Visualize them like contracts, burning up into nothingness.
“I let go of outdated agreements to resist or to take on someone else’s resistance as my own.”
“I let go of the need to hold onto anything harmful in this situation.”
Make some new agreements that support how to change more appropriately, like:
“I choose to see this situation in a positive light.” or… “I am capable and my Spirit helps me to handle change… I am free to change in accordance with my highest good… I allow other people to handle their own resistance…” etc.
Connect with the Third Chakra at your Solar Plexus and let it open up. Relax and let the tightness go. Deep breathing is your best friend in times of change! Move around or stretch if you like.
Give yourself a good dose of courage with the help of this Circle:
“I surround myself with courage, strength and determination.”
Imagine that this Circle can help you find the seeds of the resistance you’re feeling. They’re probably not even yours! Let them go back to wherever they came from.
Reclaim your own seeds of acceptance and nurture them gently.
Now it’s time to dissolve your connection to any of that old resistance. Use this symbol for Dissolving Destructive Blueprints and send all the patterns to the Sun!
“I dissolve the mental, emotional and spiritual connections to these patterns of resistance.”
Take your time and visualize them dissolving like dark clouds into a pure, blue sky.
Next, seal and heal all leaks, holes or pathways that lead to back to any unnecessary suffering:
“All holes are sealed and healed. I follow the direction of healthy protection.”
Finally, let your mindset align itself with gratitude and grace:
“I am grateful to be changing with the changes.”
It’s rarely easy to let go of resistance, but once you know how to change with the changes, your situation is bound to improve! The I Ching leaves you with this thought:
“Remove discordant elements as they appear, throw out outmoded or stifling policies when they once again create problems, and establish far-reaching clarity about the future whenever the opportunity presents itself.” ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing
