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 navigate contradiction and get on the path to a better world based on the Common Good. 

The I Ching

I Ching Workbook - R. L. WingThe original intent of the I Ching was based on an Eastern philosophy of observation and marking changes in natural and human events. Through many centuries and contributions from shamans and master teachers, including Lau Tzu and Confucius, the Book of Change was developed into a full philosophy for applying beneficial human conduct to varying circumstances. The Art of Feng Shui is part of that philosophy.

Understanding the Larger Picture ~

When a roller coaster is being flung this way and that, it’s natural to grab onto something that you think will help to stabilize you. However, if you’re clinging to something that is itself unstable, you are actually making your situation worse, whether you’re aware of the mistake or not. It may seem, in the moment, that the larger the structure, the safer you’ll be and that encourages you to grip even harder. This is a classic survival response, and completely understandable.

You may feel safer for a moment, yet once you’ve given over the weight of your body to a larger structure that is in DECLINE and falling down, the gravity and force of the fall is exponentially greater.

This is the reason that you are  encouraged to stay in the I Ching Flow of  MODERATION whenever possible.

Todays Intuitive Reading - ModerationIf you can pull back and look at your situation from a larger perspective, you may see the truly precarious situation that you’re in as a society.

Your levels of communication are an extreme example of how desperately people are clinging to the way things used to be. Structures of communication are falling down, tangled and filled with outages, glitches, hijacking of information – these are all signs of the general DECLINE we’re going through.

This DECLINE is completely natural and cannot be stopped.

“Although DECLINE points to the beginning of a later flowering, the way you handle this current decrease in resources is of great importance. This decrease is in accordance with the forces in the cosmos and therefore perfectly natural and completely unavoidable… Accept the DECLINE and respond appropriately by simplifying your life.” – Hexagram #41 DECLINE, The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

The text goes on to warn against extreme communication in particular:

“There may be less meaningful communication between you and yours, and a frustrating lack of information. Don’t become angry or provocative in an attempt to rekindle passions. Instead, gear the relationship down to a simpler form more appropriate to the time of DECLINE. Be as reassuring as possible to those dear to you while devoting your energies to the refinement of your character.”

“This work on the Self underlies the considerations in all worldly affairs. The DECLINE becomes evident in diminishing social contact. Again, you should not try to force events or carry on as though nothing had changed. Instead, turn your energies within and apply them to your personal aims. Success is yours through sincere devotion and simplicity.” ~ Hexagram #41 DECLINE, The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

The Chinese Zodiac 

Overcoming Misunderstandings and Mistrust in the Chinese Year of the Black Yang Water Tiger.

2022 Year of the Tiger - Todays Intuitive ReadingThe Chinese Zodiac animal that has dominated the energy of 2022 is the ferocious TIGER. There is no ignoring the arrogance, sudden changes and contradictory behaviors that he’s so well known for.

This Fall, these negative behaviors will continue to escalate and it certainly doesn’t take much intuitive ability to figure that out!

However, it is wise to enhance our intuition and other Soul resources to take clear, affirmative action to protect ourselves against the forces that threaten to pull us back into a putrid pool of poison, extremism and chaos that is therapeutically referred to as Narcissism.

If we want to set the stage for greater equity, co-operation and sustainable prosperity, we must proactively call upon the more positive qualities of the Tiger like Confidence, Courage, Steadfastness and Strength.

The I Ching: Navigate CONTRADICTION.

To navigate the flow of CONTRADICTION that’s predominant right now requires a great deal of caution and courage. It’s important that your intentions don’t further complicate the many problems that are evident everywhere. It will be essential for any new invention or plan to be fully scrutinized and vetted for unconscious gripping and mistaken assumptions about what would be actually joyful for you.

Making a careful and comprehensive examination regarding your intentions and motivations will yield the best results. Then, because you’ve consciously weeded out harmful, outdated methods and procedures, your actions will take on greater meaning.

“This is a time when you may meet with the dualism in your own nature. You may appear indecisive or equivocal to others as you weigh contradicting viewpoints. Never before have you been able to see both sides so clearly. Arbitrary predispositions such as patriotism, clannishness, fixed ideas of principle or class prejudice may become less important in your life as you begin to see things in the larger overview. The struggle between good and evil, life and death, and all such opposites may appear to be simply the natural interaction of the great forces in the universe, as you develop the perspective of the sage. This sense of oneness or wholeness in a world of CONTRADICTION can bring you great depth of character and peace of mind.

Special Advice from the Second Changing Line:
“An unexpected or accidental encounter with an important idea or person will benefit you. There is a natural attraction at work here, although a direct approach would have been inconceivable or impossible.”
– Hexagram #38 CONTRADICTION, The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

SOS Symbol

This leads us to the movement of the Collective Psyche, which is upward this year. Last Year was a Year of going In and when people bucked against their better angels, they went Out, causing unnecessary ill will, suffering and divisiveness towards the collective good.

This year, our better angels are advising us to rise up and above the CONTRADICTIONS and darkness that festers below by following the Middle Road. As always, Kuan Yin offers her help and assistance through a specially chosen collection of Transformation Games, Mind Exercises and Self-care Formulas.

Gaze softly at the SOS symbol and ask for a number between 1 – 9.

Scroll down to that number and check out what that process has to offer you.

Transformation Games and Mind Exercises ~

1. Retrain Your Mind to Go For Joy.

When we go for “perfection,” that usually means doing what somebody else wants us to do, which only creates pressure, CONTRADICTIONS and an overwhelmed mind! On the other hand, going for joy usually creates more joy – which connects us with our true creative spark – and is the subject of this Learning Mind Exercise.

2. Communicating in MODERATION.

How we communicate can have a significant impact on how we’re handling the CONTRADICTIONS in our different points of view. When opposing viewpoints come front and center, striking a balance through MODERATION can bridge the gap and become the basis for future re-unification.

3. Returning To Danger.

If you are aware of the need for a new beginning and have the courage to make the change, this exercise will help you avoid RETURNING into the trap of narcissism.

4. Develop Precognition to Stay Out of Trouble.

Over the next few weeks, it would be a good idea to keep tuning into your gut instincts to shed some light on potential situations where you might be better off staying out of the way. This Mind Exercise will bring intuitive hits, hunches and other unconscious information up to the surface to be examined more closely.

5. Understanding What’s Next in the Year of the Tiger.

Take a quick quiz to see what CONTRADICTIONS are keeping you from following your path over the next three months or so.

Self-discipline Will Help Us Navigate CONTRADICTION ~

“The time calls for self-discipline. When difficulties arise, do not place the blame upon others. Once you begin to take responsibility for your own destiny you can bring order to your environment.” ~ Sixth Changing Line, MODERATION, The I Ching Workbook by R. L. Wing
