Transmuting with the Snake

Transmuting Limitations with the Snake Totem

Transmuting through Snake

If you have chosen Snake to be your Guide…

“You’re ready to go beyond the extreme ‘either/or mentality and graduate to the ‘and’ consciousness of balance and unity… Like the snake, you have transcended the limitations of who you thought you were…

Ask: Is there a fundamental change in yourself or a relationship that needs to be consciously attended to? What extreme behavior are you ready to shed?”   ~ Gifts from the Rainforest by Rheanni Lightwater


What Process Is Best for Me – Right Now?


Balancing with Plants SpiritsMany of you have asked,  “There’s so many Games and Exercises here in the Intuitive Learning Circle – how do I know which one is right for me?

Since we’re here to help you develop your intuition, it’s only natural that we would come up with a simple & fun way to decide – using your intuition!

First of all, it’s true that we have quite a few self-healing offerings, so below you’ll find a list of games that will help the Snake in you shed her old skins.

Snake Totem

There are 5 categories to choose from ~

I: Cosmos
II: Family
III: Environment
IV: Livelihood and
V: Self 

Each category has a selection of games listed underneath which are numbered 1, 2 and 3.

The first step is to take a moment and think about what’s going on for you and then look at the Snake Totem and ask your heart:

“What category would be most useful for me to look at now?”
Once you have the category number, ask yourself:
“Which number in that category represents the best self healing process for me right now – or is the best place to start?”

Remember to take the very first number that comes to you, because that is your Inner Wisdom speaking or your intuition. If more than one number comes up, write them all down in the order they came to you.
Once you have your number, scroll down the list and check out that process. You might be surprised at what you chose, because intuition doesn’t always makes sense at first. However, I suggest that you trust your first response and explore the exercise anyway. See if it pertains to your situation and feels right.
This is the intuitive way to determine which exercise is best for you right now!

Of course, if you want, you can always get help with Rheanni if you want more private coaching. Her contact info can be found at the bottom of this page…

Nourishing Healthy Projects

Nourishing Healthy Projects in the New Paradigm ~

Kuan Yin's Transformation Games - NourishingKuan Yin has been helping us through these I Ching Readings to transition from the old economic paradigm based on greed and fear to a new paradigm of co-operation and sustainable prosperity. Today, her advice about nourishing healthy projects comes from the I Ching, an ancient book of divination that follows the flow of the cosmos. Because of that, her advice and instruction comes from a different perspective than ours.

To help you better connect with her assistance, she uses the Intuitive Learning Circles  to communicate with you through meditation, affirmations and visualization. Here’s an example that could help you tune into how your nourishing yourself:

“I reclaim and balance my five senses.”

“I focus them to be aware of my own body and how I’m taking care of myself.”

“I gain clear awareness of what might be blocking POTENTIAL ENERGY that will nourish me in present time.”


MIND BODY INTEGRATION

Mind Body IntegrationFor best results playing a Transformation Game, look at each Circle both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.

Kuan Yin’s I Ching 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 # 27 – Nourishing

I Ching Transformation Game - Nourishing

Section Two: Nourish Yourself with Healthy, Supportive Projects.

It’s important to know if there are any projects that are a problem for you and what the causes might be.

To do that, let’s utilize another Chakra Key that taps into the wisdom of your Soul, called the Third Eye Chakra. Through it, your mind can communicate meaningful insights to you. Use these affirmations to help you open up:

“My intuition and common sense are connected and balanced.”

“I receive meaningful information about ____________.”

“My mind helps me to find appropriate nourishment from joyful, supportive projects.”

 

 

There may be blockages in your energy field that are part of the problem. Relax with this Circle and it’s affirmations:

“I repair the glitches, holes and blockages in my energy system.”

“All shut downs and reversals are gently corrected.”

 

 

Think about a project you’re currently involved in that concerns you. Perhaps there’s a great deal of emotional drama involved with it or the environment may be troubling for you in some way. See if this next Circle can help you gather up your impressions about the situation and bring your concerns into a clearer awareness.

What emotions do you pick up? What do you notice about the environment around your project? 

 

 

Do you currently have healthy boundaries around this project? Do you need to pull yourself back from any part of this project? Do you need to pull your energy out of it entirely? If so, use this Circle to reclaim any and all parts with appreciation and gratitude and protect yourself appropriately.

“I call back all parts of my energy – past, present and future.”

“I protect my Self in accordance with my highest good.”

 

 

Is this project genuinely beneficial to you now? Could it be?

Protection

What do you need to change about how you’re nourishing yourself with it?

 

Is there anything about the situation that needs to change in order for you to nourish yourself in a truly beneficial way?

 
Are you open to receiving the most beneficial and life affirming energy that is available to you at this time? Is there anything that needs to be changed? How would you put what you need into words?
 

 

Imagine that this symbol for Dissolving Destructive Blueprints can help you identify and dissolve any toxic imprints or patterns that may be perpetuating harm. You might see them as a dark cloud dissolving into the pure light of the Sun.

“I release the blockages and entanglements that keep me from  experiencing healthy nourishment.”

“I release patterns that keep me from experiencing joy.”

Please note: Never send destructive energies into the Earth, she already has too much to handle now. Use the Earth for planting seeds of happiness and life – not death!

 

Gaze softly into the center of Mapacho Medicine and see ancient intentions like eggs or seeds waiting to be activated. Not only do you see your own intentions and prayers, but also cultural, ancestral goals that no longer have life affirming motivations behind them. Visualize them like ingredients in a soup that could be spoiling your genuinely desired outcome. Imagine you can scoop out any unpreferred intentions and send them to the Sun:

“I let go of all intentions that would contradict my highest good or cause conflict in how I need to nourish myself in the New Paradigm.”

 

 

Release any seeds of karma that perpetuate habits and beliefs that keep you from nourishing yourself properly and send them to the light.

“I plant new karmic seeds for good things that will support my relationships with the cosmos, my family, my environment, my livelihood and myself.

I nourish those seeds with love, light, fresh water and healthy nutrition.”

 

 

Finish this exercise by closing the door on all that toxicity and move in the direction of nourishing yourself appropriately.

Closure for Mind Body Healing

“I close the door on any drain or strain on my time, space or energy.”

“I follow the direction of healthy protection.”

 

Congratulations! You’ve just cleared the way to have a more NOURISHING and satisfying relationship with your projects. Be sure to take time to rest and relax. Take a walk or get out into nature if you can!

Navigate Contradiction

Intuitive Reading from the I Ching or Book of Change: Navigate Contradiction through MODERATION.

Rheanni Lightwater - Navigate Confusion
Rheanni Lightwater, Reiki Master Teacher & Feng Shui Consultant

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 Kuan Yin encourages us to stay in the I Ching Flow of  MODERATION whenever possible.

Todays Intuitive Reading - Moderation

“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 instead, follow the guidance that comes from within. In almost any situation, if you are able to walk the middle road between extremes, there will be improvement in whatever you undertake.”

If you can pull back and come from a place of MODERATION, you might look at your situation from a more objective perspective and 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 that the old structures are 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 communications in particular:

“There may be less meaningful communication… and a frustrating lack of information. Don’t become angry or provocative… Instead, gear the relationship down to a simpler form more appropriate to the time of DECLINE.”  ~ Hexagram #41 DECLINE, The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

The Chinese Zodiac 

Bumpy Roads Ahead for the Last Quarter of the Year of the Water Tiger.

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

This Fall, the bumpy roads of conflict and poor behavior continue to escalate and the next few weeks will be particularly rough.

Clear perception and stable behavior will be your best protection.

The I Ching: Navigate CONTRADICTION.

To navigate the CONTRADICTIONS ahead effectively will demand discipline, determination and courage.

“Business or social strategies may appear ineffective, as they are neutralized by equal but opposing forces. Ambitious goals must wait for a more supportive atmosphere. Your best course of action now is to affirm friendly relations. Avoid being drawn into any questionable schemes. Do not make a grab for position.”

Keep a steady eye on the activities you’re about to engage in. You don’t want to make a bad situation worse by being careless or indulgent. Making a careful and comprehensive examination regarding your decisions will yield the best results. Then, because you’ve consciously weeded out wishful thinking and ungrounded idealism, your actions will take on greater meaning.

“There is an estrangement present between elements that naturally belong together. Do not try to reunify the situation with force… If something inferior is being forced upon you, a cold shoulder will work wonders.” – Hexagram #38 CONTRADICTION, The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

Soul Resources To Navigate Contradiction

Soul Oriented Solutions for Todays Intuitive Reading
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. Ground in the Truth and Your Power.

If you feel caught up in a power struggle or need to disconnect from a meddling or intrusive person, this six step mind exercise will help you get back in your power quickly and ground.

2. Find MODERATION to Navigate Extremes.

The volume of extremism is going to go up several notches over the next few weeks. When CONTRADICTIONS and opposing viewpoints come front and center, striking a balance through MODERATION can keep you from getting pulled into places that you don’t really want to be.

3. Stay Empowered – Even When Things Are Falling Apart.

Social paradigms and relationships from the past are in various stages of falling apart and it’s important that you don’t fall apart along with them. Empower yourself by going through this I Ching Reading and Transformation Game from Kuan Yin.

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. Empower Good Decision-making Skills.

Is there a decision that you need to make or clarify about something you’re considering doing? Use this Mind Exercise to help you get special insight from your Soul.


Self-discipline Will Help Us Navigate CONTRADICTION ~

“Difficulties pile upon difficulties and you will be opposed at every turn. Although this is a bad beginning, there is a possibility of a good ending. Cling to what you know is right or align yourself with a strong helper and the matter will end well. ” ~ Third Changing Line, CONTRADICTION, The I Ching Workbook by R. L. Wing

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 #38 – CONTRADICTION

The collective unconscious has always looked for guidance from the stars and  different constellations or Zodiac signs are often named after animals. In the Chinese Zodiac, 2022 is the Year of the Yang Water Tiger, an energy that is also filled with fierce CONTRADICTIONS. What does following your path over the last part of the Year hold for you?

Because of our collective experience, we have universal symbols and patterns that affect us, whether or not they are often used in our own culture. Many mandalas give Americans a sense of peace and focus, even though they are not used daily in mainstream American culture.

The Tiger’s Feng Shui Mandala below can give you a sense of what the archetype of the Tiger is about and what may lie on the path ahead. If you’re interested, gently contemplate its center and relax. When you’re ready, ask yourself these questions and journal the answers that come:

“What is the most important thing I can focus my energy and effort on over the next few months?”

Following Your Path in the Year of the Tiger

“What is the direction? Why is that important?
How can I utilize the energy of the Tiger to my best advantage?
Is there something I’m wasting time on? Have I forgotten something?
If so, can I tell what they are and what would be the best thing to do?”

Allow your intuition to come forward and bring guidance from your innermost Self. 


Take a quick quiz to see if there are CONTRADICTIONS that are keeping you from following your path:

Being on your true path implies that you are following a course of action that fulfills the needs and desires of your Soul. Multiple paths conjure images of choices, confusion, free will and getting lost. This year, there has definitely been a lot of confusion and diversions into serious conflicts and no win situations. Collective paranoia and polarization are running rampant. To see where you are with that, use this sequence of Circles:

Does it feel as though you’re heading back into an old, repetitive and abusive cycle?

Following Your Path

 

Do you feel your vibration is low? Is something draining your vitality?

Rainforest Tree - Following Your Path

 

Are you feeling out of sync with your natural cycles or the cycles of Nature?

Moon - Following Your Path

Unstable Energies Are Causing Confusion, Fear, Defensiveness and Blockages in Our Minds.

Remember that the primary purpose of the unconscious mind is to preserve and protect the body. Therefore, if you are exposed to things that are abusive or taking you into harm’s way, your mind would normally take action to protect you.

But what if part of you is still caught up in the past? What if you (or a part of you) is motivated by fear or following a path that isn’t even relevant anymore?

Your mind might resist acknowledging the truth. And, if your mind is very stubborn, it might double down and get very defensive.

In the year of the Tiger, getting defensive and lost = fear of the future and opportunities lost!

This becomes especially difficult to navigate if there are lots of people around you projecting their own needs, wants and beliefs onto you. For example, advertising and the media have made huge investments into influencing your choices in their favor, rather than your own.  

If you recognize any part of this as being a problem for you, take a look at a few steps for following your path that will help you move through the Year of the Tiger with fewer obstructions.

Following Your Path

Step One – Identify an Obstruction:

If you’re ready and willing, you might be able to identify a harmful obstruction and decide that you want to free yourself from it.

This Intuitive Learning Circle from Gifts from the Rainforest is #2 Vulture and it transmits a distinct warning. Gaze at the Circle softly and tune into your body. Do you feel uneasy or exposed to danger?  

Notice how distracting this energy is. Sometimes it warns you about a real danger and sometimes it’s just pulling you off track. It could be coming from the media or other people. Ask your gut, “Am I actually in danger? here is it coming from and what’s it about?”

 

Step Two: Clear the Conflicts:

Notice how this vibration might bring up feelings of being trapped or helpless. Once you’ve made a decision to let it go, whatever agreements you have that are in conflict with letting it go come up and create resistance. These conflicts could impair your health or well-being in serious ways, so it’s well worth it to address them and clear out the landscape of your mind right away.

“Am I experiencing contradictions that cause distractions, confusion or poor health?” Note: There may be more than one.

To help you release any CONTRADICTIONS, imagine that the lines in this Circle are going limp and moving around like strings of spaghetti. Do that both crossed and uncrossed. It’s time to pull all the cogs and fixations out of your thinking!

 

Step three – Get Centered in your Solar Plexus:

Relax now and let your 3rd Chakra get connected, open and balanced at your solar plexus (the area where your ribs go up in the front).

Your Essential Self is also known as the Psyche and is most efficiently located there to help you manifest, create happiness and maintain health. When encountering this low vibration, your Essential Self could react and run away. You can correct that now.

It may take a little bit of time because this obstruction has probably been around for a very long time and really knows how to throw you off! Use these affirmations to help you:

“My 3rd Chakra is open and balanced to accommodate my Essential Self.”

 

Step Four- Connect with your Natural Instincts:

Use the Circle to help you reconnect so that you can get back in touch with your gut instincts, your environment and the things that really matter. Ask yourself:

“Is there any part of me that’s holding onto old energy, a mistaken idea or keeping me connected to this CONTRADICTION?”

If your answer is “yes,” it would be wise to stop and gather up your Soul Resources.

 

Step Five- Regain Your Power:

“I am empowered to face this contradiction and move in the direction of my Souls purpose in accordance with my highest good.”

“I empower my ability to be patient and forgive myself, because I’m very likely to get confused by conflicting agendas and mistaken ideas.”

 

Step Six – Connect and Open the Chakras for Your Senses:

Relax for a few minutes with this Reiki Chakra Key to help you determine what shifts are necessary.

“I gather up all of my senses and use them to perceive what I need now to be healthy and more co-operative with my Soul.”

“I use them to discern the difference between healthy life force and a negative or invading energy.”

“I use my senses to ________ and _________.”

 

Step Seven – Balance Your Senses and Open Up Your Intuition:

This Circle from Gifts from the Rainforest helps you balance all of your senses so that you’re listening to your own body, instead of discordant noise from the outside world!

The volume may be turned up too high, or it could be too low. Take several breaths deep into your belly and exhale long and slow. This is helpful to every part of your nervous system.

“The volume and pitch of my senses are balanced to just the right level.”

“I listen to my heart. I notice my breath. I move my body around and stretch.”

“I activate my intuition and use it in balance.” 

 

Step Eight – Inquiry:

As you move forward in the Year of the Tiger, are you utilizing your preferred element for creating harmony, optimal health, financial stability and happiness?

The elements you could be using are: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, Air or Ether.

Each element has a particular style that your Soul resonates best with.

If you’re using the style of an element that doesn’t work very well for you, it could be causing a downturn in health, a lot of internal struggle or even unnecessary failure.

Make a decision to use your preferred element from now on to manifest success.

 

Now You’re Ready to Find A Solution for Following Your Path.

This Earth Chart from Soul Prayer Charts releases unconscious agreements you may have about being misled by other people’s agendas or pulled into conflict. Use it to access and uproot out-dated conditioning that’s planted in your unconscious mind. That includes early child-rearing techniques, mistaken ideas or conditioning from society through education, the media or religious upbringing.

All you need to do is look at the Circle and consciously imagine any imprints that are causing confusion and keeping you stuck to those low vibrations. Pull those agreements out of the landscape of your mind like old, dead roots and throw them into a fire to burn up. Here are some sample agreements that might be useful for you to uproot:

“I release any agreements I have with contradictory pathways or agendas.”

“I let go of burdens that are imposed on me through family expectations or through outdated genetic conditioning.”

“I release conditioning that I’ve been tricked, coerced or forced into.”

“I ask my Soul to light up the highest good in my mind so I can easily find and follow it. 

 

“This path is clearly imprinted with my unique Soul vibration and signature. I make a new agreement to follow it.”

 

Resolution for Healing Inner Conflicts.

Use the Intuitive Learning Circle below to release conflicting or harmful agreements on a neurological level. Look at the Circle and consciously imagine any “contracts” that are outdated or causing you harm are unlocking all the way up and down your spine. Here are some “global” agreements that might be useful for you to release: 

“I release all agreements or obligations that keep me stuck in the past or pull me into someone else’s agenda.”

“I release agreements to be motivated or trapped by fear.”

“I let go of any lies that restrict my freedom and autonomy.” 

“I release all agreements, beliefs, or obligations that I’ve been tricked or forced into against my free will.”

What other agreements can you think of that might be good for you to release?       “I release ___________.”

 

Open Your Heart to the Courage that Will Help You Expand and Learn New Ways of Being.

“I open my heart to Courage and listen to my Souls guidance.”

“I breathe freely. I radiate trust and can easily adapt to change.”

 

“I decide to love and respect myself. I have worth.
I radiate the Light of my Soul out into the world and fill it
with joy and prosperity.”

 

Disengage from Entanglements that Obstruct Your Freedom.

There may be attachments or karmic entanglements that keep this obstruction going. Use this Soul Star Chakra Key to detach from them. Relax and meditate on it for as long as you like. Like a healing balm, imagine that a loving coat of peace and comfort is pouring down over you – especially your heart center!

 

Dissolve Old Mental and Emotional Patterns.

Take all the time you need to dissolve the destructive mental, emotional and spiritual patterns that are keeping you attached to those old pathways and mistaken ideas. Let the symbol help you dissolve the patterns and all the confusion around them, like a dark cloud dissipating into a clear, blue sky.

Please note: Never send destructive energies into the Earth, she already has too much to handle now. Use the Earth for planting seeds of happiness and life – not death!

Disengage from Pathways That Are Not Yours to Follow.

This Circle will help you close any pathways that no longer serve you.

“Not this way, go another way – the Sun has set on these paths.”

 

Decide to Align with the New Paradigm.

Place both feet on the floor and give yourself a few minutes to ground yourself on your Souls true pathway in the New Paradigm. 

“My energy is aligned with my true spiritual path and purpose.”

Following Your Path

 

Ask For Guidance From Your Higher Self.

 “What action(s) will support me in following my path in the year of the Tiger?”

Old Soul

 

Congratulations! Through this transformation game you’ve let go of a lot and enhanced your spiritual guidance about following your path. Be sure to take some time relaxing and being out in nature to integrate the benefits of this new energy.

Know what you want, know what makes you feel good about your Self, know what brings you into harmony with others. These are your guidelines and principles. Other factors that assume control of your behavior or your health or that create inner discord are the obstacles that must be overcome. Be firm, unemotional, gentle, and clear in annihilating them and thereby reforming your Self and your environment.” ~The I Ching Workbook, R.L Wing

Navigate Decline Through Wisdom

Intuitive Reading from the I Ching or Book of Change – Navigate DECLINE.

Rheanni Lightwater - Resources for Liberation
Rheanni Lightwater, Reiki Master Teacher & Feng Shui Consultant

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 DECLINE using wisdom and moderation. 

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.

The Chinese Zodiac 

Its the Chinese Year of the Black Yang Water Tiger.

2022 Year of the Tiger - Navigate Decline through StrengthThe 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.

If we’re not careful, he threatens to pull us into a whirlpool of resentments and past conflicts, clawing away at each other with no end in sight!

The Tiger comes around every twelve years and his more positive qualities are: Confident, Courageous, Steadfast and Strong. What might we do to call upon that kind of energy instead?

The Tarot Major Arcana Card for 2022 –

VI: The Lovers Suggest a Potential for Unity ~

In numerology, the year 2022 breaks down to the number 6.  2 +2 +2 = 6. The Number VI Card of the Tarot is THE LOVERS representing unity, consciousness and purification.

Perhaps we can tap into the positive aspects of this archetype and utilize it to create more harmonious relationships.

Exploring the I Ching Energy 

Ever since 2009, Kuan Yin has offered her assistance through the I Ching and specially chosen Transformation Games, Mind Exercises and Self-care Formulas to help us navigate whatever changes were required. 

Todays Intuitive Reading

As a time-honored and respected guide in the Healing Arts, her aim has always been to help us stay calm and navigate the chaotic transition from the old paradigm into the New Paradigm with clear minds and hearts. 

Now, Kuan Yin wants to help us navigate DECLINE, which is the general trend in the Universe. *Caution! Her advice, as always, is direct and to the point!

The Availability of Life Force is in a General Trend of DECLINE – Hexagram #41. The original text states:

“The pendulum swings once again, this time moving into a general DECLINE. Although the 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. You will ultimately benefit, however, from any sacrifices you must now make.

Accept the DECLINE and respond appropriately by simplifying your life. A sincere and simplified approach to life will prevent you from making serious mistakes and will improve your sense of timing. If you find the DECLINE unacceptable and continue the pretense of more opulent times you will fall into error and out of touch with reality.

Simplicity at this time is genuinely good for your inner development. You must now alter certain attitudes by curbing your instincts and passionate drives. Even in your innermost Self you must economize in accordance with the current DECLINE of the life force. If you normally function with a great deal of tension, it is time to modify your behavior. Become conscious of any extravagant emotional reactions. By sacrificing any indulgences that occur at the instinct level, you can now benefit the higher aspects of your nature.”  ~ Hexagram #41 DECLINE, The I Ching Workbook by R. L. Wing

Navigate Decline Through Strength ~

“Since the arrival of the Aquarian Age (Air), and the decline in Piscean energies (Water), your bodies and psyches have been challenged to adjust to the transition. Human beings have no template for what’s happening, therefore, there’s much confusion and running around in circles.

When there’s a general DECLINE in available life force flowing through the Tao like this, it’s best to stop spending your energy and resources on no win situations or other wasteful, time-consuming projects. The time is ideal for letting go of mistaken ideas or other dilemmas that have been haunting you.

When What You’re Doing Isn’t Working, Stop and Find Another Way ~

The Element of Air - Todays Intuitive ReadingThe best way to approach any dilemma at any time is to find a completely new way of handling yourself. If you’re willing to lift your thinking up and out of the swamp you’ve been collectively stuck in, new solutions and answers to what ails you can emerge from the lighter, quicker energy channels that are available.

The new energy of Air (Aquarius) is the perfect medium for new thoughts, concepts and ideas to make their way into the collective.

The biggest obstacles seem to be:

  •  stubborn attachments to revenge,
  •  unreasonable expectations about wanting everything, whenever you want them without reasonable limitations, and
  • cynical refusal to cooperate with eachother for the common good.

These obstacles are buried deep within your collective psyches. The times are indeed difficult. Yet, if you are willing to be helped and have an open attitude, opportunities will begin to present themselves.”

Difficult Beginnings

Difficult Beginnings arise where there are a profusion of elements struggling to take form…

Transitioning Out of the Piscean Age (Water) Into the Aquarian Age (Air).

Guidance from Kuan Yin and the I Ching

“You can sense the difficulties that lie ahead on your path. If you nevertheless plunge into the forest of obstacles without an experienced guide, you will surely lose your way.” ~ Hexagram #3 DIFFICULT BEGINNINGS, The I Ching Workbook by R.L. Wing

Kuan Yin's Transformation Games - Difficult BeginningsEver since 2009, Kuan Yin has offered her assistance through the I Ching and specially chosen Transformation Games, Mind Exercises and Self-care Formulas to help us navigate whatever changes were required. As a time-honored and respected guide in the Healing Arts, her aim has always been to help us stay calm and navigate the chaotic transition from the old paradigm into the New Paradigm with clear minds and hearts.

Now, Kuan Yin wants to help us adjust to the changes that have taken place by exploring what we need to be aware of about the reality of living and navigating in the New Paradigm where the Tao (or gate through which all things move) is likely to flow in varying difficult and chaotic patterns for some time.

Crossing the Bridge Over Difficult Beginnings.

Difficult BeginningsRadical energy shifts that began during the Solstice season of 2020 have escalated since December 21st, 2021. A change in the Cosmos has occurred and any remaining energy coming from the old paradigm, i.e. the Messianic or Piscean Age has shut down completely. That means that the prevailing Water style of manifesting that we knew and used in the old paradigm is no longer available to us. 

As Kuan Yin has been warning us would happen since 2009 – the old way of manifesting and working with energy is officially done. Of course, water is always an element that’s essential to life, it’s just no longer the prevailing Elemental style.

I have been turning to her and other angelic guides to help me understand and adjust to the series of radical energy shifts that began on the Solstice of 2021. Her advice, as always, is direct and to the point…

“The Tao is now moving in the style of the lighter, quicker element of Air.

Think about the difference between Air and Water. Water is an element that is flowing, yet dense, moving down in the path of least resistance. Water is the Archetypal Element that governs intuitive, emotional activity. When too much Water gathers in excess and doesn’t move, it stagnates. When it’s gotten out of balance, humans tend to internalize overwhelming emotions and experience dramatic upheavals.

In the old paradigm, emotions lead and thoughts followed.

Difficult Beginnings Under the Influence of Air.

Air also moves, but in a much lighter and quicker way. This element governs mental activity; thoughts – words – decisions and understanding. Air can change its velocity and direction in the flash of an instant, which explains the uptick in explosive weather patterns, wildfires, war activity, misinformation, lies and social volatility.
In general, that means everything is moving much faster, lighter, quicker and more direct than you are used to. Think about the difference between swimming and flying. You can still get from Point A to Point B, however, the effort it’s going to be a very different experience.

Communications Also Need to Adapt.

Likewise with communications. Think about the difference between how sound travels under water and how it travels through the air.

Release your agreement with STAGNANT ENERGY FLOW

Underwater, sounds are slow moving and muffled. They’re far more easily misconstrued, diverted, ambiguous, distorted and wishy-washy. If the water is heavy, it gets STAGNANT, apathetic and toxic. This “stuck” condition relates to current social tendencies such as apathy, resistance, self-pity and laziness. You would be wise to release your agreements to utilize this very stagnant energy flow.

Instead, make a conscious choice to activate a new relationship with the Element of Water – fresh and purified to offset the imbalances and SHOCKING effects of past indifference and abuse.

Consciously go beyond thoughts and prayers and make an actual adjustment in how you relate to and utilize this precious resource.

Learning to Manifest Effectively In the New Influence of Air.

In addition, Air governs the Central Meridian, which fuels the brain and the Soul. This enhances rational thought, putting concepts into words, discernment, understanding and decision-making.

In the New Paradigm, thoughts lead and emotions follow.

Examples of successful manifesting includes these components:

  • Clear messaging (communication).
  • Clear intention (single-minded, simple, straightforward).
  • Motivation to cooperate.

Ask yourself how well you are using the mental aspect of Air with these questions:
“Are my thoughts positive?”
“Is my intention clear?”
“Are my motivations life affirming?”

Elemental: Air - Difficult Beginnings
Elemental: Air – Ace of Swords

 

As you consider those questions, make a new agreement with yourself to REFORM how you are interacting with the Elements that have shifted in the flow of energy. Release how you interacted with the Water dominated energy of Pisces and make new agreements to mindfully generate life with the Air energy of Aquarius.

“I REFORM how I utilize the Elements of Water and Air to create life in         the New Paradigm.”

“I slow down, simplify and use less force to accomplish my aims.”

The out-dated communication system of the Patriarchy is attempting to maintain the position that only certain people should have power, be heard and respected.

Release your agreements with that system so that you can assume a new position in the New Paradigm, built on a foundation of accessibility, equity, sustainable prosperity and willingness to co-operate for the Common Good.

Another agreement to change would be to come from a place of gratitude and joy, rather than from a grumpy, greedy or vengeful place.

“I release agreements to source from greed, dissatisfaction or revenge.”

“I now Source from Gratitude and Joy.”

 

The adjustments you need to take won’t just happen on their own. In this new environment, having integrity in thought, word and deed is the best way to manifest genuine happiness. Be proactive and intentional with what you want to set up for yourselves.”

Divine Protection for Difficult Beginnings
Divine Protection in the New Paradigm

 


Creating in the New Paradigm: A Shift in Elemental Influence.

Kuan Yin advises us to study the text for Hexagram #57 PENETRATING INFLUENCE (the Gentle) to learn more about how to navigate under these new conditions:

“Chinese art often depicts the effects of the invisible wind as it influences the landscape. Mountains are shown eroded and sculpted into fascinating forms, trees bend and twist into exotic shapes, clouds roll dramatically across the sky, bringing life-giving rain. In contemplating the wind, the…mind is inspired by the profound effect of a PENETRATING INFLUENCE and how this effect might manifest itself in human affairs.

You are faced with a situation that can be influenced only by gradual efforts in a consistent direction. Gentleness is the key here. Violence and radical movement would only alarm and repel. To influence effectively, you must maintain clearly defined goals over a long period of time. Your efforts should be as inconspicuous as possible. Try to imagine and emulate the gentle, unceasing wind… The time requires patience, a long-term commitment, and a vision of what you ultimately wish to accomplish…

This type of PENETRATING INFLUENCE is not rousing and takes much time, but it makes a lasting and profound impression.” ~ Hexagram #57, The I Ching Workbook by R. L. Wing

In this new energy, cultivate the power of observation to help you adjust quickly to sudden shifts of energy, missteps or over reaching. Forcing things and sudden moves can easily create chaotic energy flow and erratic imbalances, which should be avoided whenever possible.

Part of what that means is we need to:

  • Slow down and take things one at a time
  • Have clear, unified intentions
  • Examine intentions for hidden contradictions and harmful assumptions
  • Pay attention to the results we’re getting for our efforts
  • Be flexible in case what we’re doing isn’t working
  • Patiently and gently let go of resistance to what’s genuinely beneficial.

Emulate the gentle and patient Tree Sloth. Slow down and follow your Soul’s intention:

Tree Sloth - Difficult Beginnings

“It’s time to slow down and focus your energies on what you want to accomplish. Turn your attention 100% toward a clear intention. This is not the time for multi-tasking. If you have too many things going on, you won’t be able to keep track of what’s really important, and something really important is happening in this situation. Save yourself future regrets and resentments by paying attention now.” ~ #23 Tree Sloth from Gifts from the Rainforest

She also advises us to look at Hexagram #34 GREAT POWER:

“Keep in mind that power is a means and not an end in itself. In applying the available forces to the situation at hand, be certain that your timing is exact and that your actions are correct — that is, in the best interest of all concerned. The Chinese point out that actions that combine both correctness and GREAT POWER represent the true character and tendencies in heaven and on earth. The responsibility of correctness in times of GREAT POWER is unparalleled in importance, for actions that are inappropriate or incorrect will pull you and others into chaos.

Although blessed with GREAT POWER, you would be wise to pause and be certain that your proposed objectives are honorable… Unorthodox actions can lead to downfall during powerful times. Be patient, too, and wait for the opportune moment before executing your plan…”

Be instructed by the Praying Mantis. Still your mind and center yourself. Observe what’s really happening before taking action:

Praying Mantic - Difficult Beginnings

Good questions to ask are: What are you paying attention to? Is this a productive use of your time and attention? What would your spirit guide you to focus on instead?

There are unique challenges for those who identify as healers.

Realize that current underlying assumptions about healing and how it works are going through radical upheaval, whether we know it or not. The age of healing through sacrifice is over. Your special gifts and healing powers will need to make adjustments to work well with the new Air energy.

“Transcend difficulties in your inner development by remaining mindful of your shortcomings. Do not assume that your power indicates strength of character, or that it justifies all your attitudes and opinions. This is just another test. Pay special attention to timing, propriety and goodness in order to fully employ the GREAT POWER available to you. In bringing enlightenment and progress to others, you strengthen your own sense of health and well-being.” ~ The I Ching Workbook by R. L. Wing

Accepting the Challenge. 

As you learn to navigate this new energy, you will need to adapt your mindset and decision making skills to the different influences of Air and Water. Use these Archetypal Charts to to help you assess how you’re doing:


Kuan Yin leaves us with these words to the wise about how to handle difficult beginnings:

Know what you want, know what makes you feel good about your Self, know what brings you into harmony with others. These are your guidelines and principles. Other factors that assume control of your behavior or your health or that create inner discord are the obstacles that must be overcome. Be firm, unemotional, gentle, and clear in annihilating them and thereby reforming your Self and your environment.” ~The I Ching Workbook, R.L Wing

Advanced Chakra Healing and Clearing ~

Recommended Transformation Games to Help you adjust and Keep You Moving with the Flow In the New Paradigm, Rather than Against it.

Recent changes in the flow of the Universe have affected us in so many ways that we do not understand yet. Because the chakras react to and reflect environmental factors, it’s important that we pay attention to how well they are functioning and proactively rebalance them when needed.

Navigate Reversals During Retrograde

The biggest issue during this  period is the tendency for chakras (and other energy systems) to suddenly start running in reverse or shut down completely. This backward movement can cause serious physical problems that come on suddenly.

Add to that the increase in violence, chronic health imbalances caused by Covid 19 and the overwhelmed state of our collective mental/emotional health and you’ve got a serious situation that should not be ignored.

For that reason, Kuan Yin has asked me to bring back a format I used to utilize so that I can post Mind Exercises and Transformation Games that are likely to address conflicts in each of the Primary Chakras. It is my hope that they will help you keep your chakras moving in the right direction, free of conflict and reversals. Here are her suggested intentions:

“I am centered and balanced.”

“I release toxic energy and allow my energy to adapt and flow with the new energy of the New Paradigm.”

 

Lets begin with the Root Chakra and move up:

1st Chakra - Root Chakra Balancing

“Our root chakra is red and governs the physical body, our instincts and the assumptions we have about life. It’s located at the very base of the trunk of your body.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the Root needs are physiological – air, food, water, shelter, warmth, sex, sleep and having adequate methods of communication.

Gaze softly at the Root Chakra Key above and then ask yourself:

“Are my physiological needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Root Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin would like you to let go of an old pattern of emotional pain that has been affecting your Root Chakra for a long time. 

Next up is the Second Chakra (also known as the Spleen Chakra):

2nd Chakra - Spleen Chakra Balancing“The second energy center is referred to here as the spleen chakra because it is deeply connected to our emotions, digestion and immunity. Its color is orange and is located 2-3 inches down from the navel.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the second level needs are safety oriented – protection from the elements, security, order, law, stability and freedom from fear.

Gaze softly at the Second Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my safety and security needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my 2nd Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin wants you to check in with your immune system and detach from harmful energies>

Continue by addressing the Third Chakra needs:

3rd Chakra - Solar Plexus Chakra Balancing“The solar plexus chakra is the center of who we are and who we think we are, so it’s fitting that its color is a bright yellow and is located in the solar plexus.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the third level needs include love and belongingness needs – friendship, intimacy, affection and love from work group, family, friends, and romantic relationships.

Gaze softly at the Third Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my love and belongingness needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Third Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin wants you to examine your intentions and weed out those that are causing you to scatter>

The Heart Center and Basic Balance:

Fourth Chakra - Heart Chakra Balancing“Our heart chakra is the bridge between our bodies and the spiritual world. It is where our thoughts and beliefs about love meet the physical expression of it.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the fourth level needs include esteem needs – achievement, self-love, independence, status, dominance, prestige, self-approval, self-respect and respect from others. 

Gaze softly at the Fourth Chakra Key below for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my compassion and esteem needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Fourth Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin wants you to be able to ground in your truth and your power>

Consider the Fifth Chakra and the Power of Your Word: 

Fifth Chakra - Throat Chakra Balancing“The energy of the throat chakra is about what you put out into the world – having a voice. It’s about speaking your truth and is blue in color, as in ‘true blue’.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the fifth level needs include cognitive needs such as knowledge, meaning, expression, self-mastery and self-awareness.

Gaze softly at the Fifth Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my cognitive needs being met? Am I able to ask for what I need and straightforward in my requests? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Fifth Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin would like you to experience greater self-confidence in how you see yourself and communicate> 

The Sixth Chakra and the Power of Your Perception:

Sixth Chakra - Third Eye Chakra Balancing“The third eye chakra contains the energy of insight and wisdom. Located in the center of the forehead just above the eyebrow, this chakra is associated with the color purple.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the sixth level needs include aesthetic needs – the appreciation of and search for beauty, balance and form, etc. Kuan Yin would add the need for spiritual insight and understanding.

Gaze softly at the Sixth Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my needs for creativity and spiritual understanding being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Sixth Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin wants you to be sure you’re focused on your priorities>

The Seventh Chakra and Self-actualization: 

Seventh Chakra - Crown Chakra Balancing“The crown chakra is our connection to spirit. This is the energy center that connects us with divine inspiration. Its color is white as it contains all things and it can cast a golden ring when in states of ecstasy.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the seventh level needs include self actualization  needs – realizing personal potential, self-fulfillment, seeking personal growth and peak experiences.

Gaze softly at the Seventh Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my self-actualization needs being met? Are my fulfillment needs blocked in any way? Am I taking action and giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Seventh Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin would like you to keep your mind clear even when lies are everywhere>


In conclusion, Kuan Yin recommends that you take the time to understand and adapt to all the changes going on.

Whether you want to prepare for improved health, career, finances or relationships, your mind and the whole experience will be much happier if you have an ongoing practice that will help you adapt and nurture yourself.

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

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.

This year’s Chinese Horoscope animal is the Yin Water Tiger, which began on February 1st and will continue until January 31st, 2023.

The positive qualities of the Tiger are generally described as confident, courageous, strong, steadfast and independent. This is all good if you’ve found a way to tap into that kind of energy and utilize it for your highest good.

However, the Tiger is also contradictory, arrogant, bossy and critical. Ever since she showed up, her energy has aggravated high levels of violent contradictions and conflicts. These wild fluctuations are causing a tremendous mental/emotional strain and drain on our collective energy. What can be done?


The I Ching: Balance Conflicting Energies through MODERATION.

The I Ching energy continues with a multiple highway pattern and it’s not clear when that will end.

Whenever that happens, Kuan Yin advises me to “follow the middle road” or the road of MODERATION – the path that is guided from within.

Balance Conflicting Energies through Moderation“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 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.


Here are some pertinent excerpts from the text of Hexagram #15 MODERATION, as translated by R.L. Wing:

(MODESTY)

“Nature balances itself with plagues, droughts, and cycles of overabundance, and human nature strives toward MODERATION in its tendency to reduce the excesses of the over powerful and to augment the needs of those who are desperately wanting…

Leaders should strive to firmly carry their objectives through to completion, not with a show of extraordinary force but with the continuing sincerity that springs from their true natures… The self-evident, self-actualizing demonstration of purpose is the mark of great leaders acting with MODERATION

You should now concentrate on establishing harmonious equilibrium with your fellow man and bring MODERATION and order to social institutions. This not only means avoiding radicalism and ostentatious values, but also tolerating weaknesses and inferior elements. “Everything in moderation” means just that… This inner equilibrium aligns you with the tao, thus bringing you into harmony with forces that can work for you…

Without changing lines, the hexagram MODERATION reflects a need for temperance in dealing with the object of your inquiry. Carefully measure your reactions by disengaging from opinionated attitudes. Only in this way can you begin to make progress.”  ~ Hexagram #15 MODERATION, The I Ching Workbook by R. L. Wing


Soul Resources Offers Emotional Support for Your Journey: 

So, we are being challenged to find the power of Inner Wisdom and Strength, which can teach us how to cultivate spiritual courage and dedication to a worthy cause. If we’re willing to use our power in balance, we can learn how to use them to slow down, work together, conserve our energy and use our strength to bring us together rather than pull us apart.

As always, Kuan Yin offers her support and resources through a collection of Transformation Games, Mind Exercises and Self-care Formulas designed to fortify healthy boundaries and how we use our power.

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

Scroll down to that number in the list of games and exercises below and check out what that process has to offer you.


Transformation Games and Mind Exercises ~

1. Find Moderation When Things Aren’t Going Well.

The ancient Chinese text describes finding MODERATION as the best way to make progress amidst chaos and Kuan Yin emphatically agrees. If you’ve been thrown off by recent events, this Transformation Game will help you get back into balance. When you’re able to walk the middle road between extremes, you’ll be surprised how much easier things get.

2. Handle Irritations Before They Handle You.

There’s more than enough things to be irritated about. Don’t let them get you down or drain your energy. This exercise is for when you’re ready to figure out what you need to do to stop making a bad situation worse and head in a healthier direction.

3. Let Go of Emotions That Pull You Out of Balance. 

There is an abundance of emotions around many DETERIORATING situations. Use this game to help you reconnect with the energy and empowerment of your Soul. Consciously close down destructive energy channels and reorganize your thoughts and energy around positive action.

4. Unearth Emotional Conflict.

Get yourself into the best position to clear your emotional conflict. Use this Transformation Game to help you close the doors to suffering so you don’t keep recycling business you thought was finished.

5. Clear Karmic Entanglements that Tap Into Adversity.

Use self-hypnosis to clear out interference and reorganize how you use your energy with this popular Transformation Game. Releasing your agreements with hatred, fear or falsehood will help you detach from old family patterns, outdated religious vows, or even a larger, collective entanglement like disenfranchisement.


Following the Middle Road Will Help Us Find Our Way ~

“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

Chakra Healing and Clearing ~

Recommended Transformation Games and Mind Exercises to Keep You Moving with the Flow, Rather than Against it.

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.”
