Lunar New Year

Welcome in the Lunar New Year: Say Hello to the Dragon and Goodbye to the Year of the Rabbit ~

The Lunar New Year is a time of significant transition. In the Chinese Zodiac, each Lunar year has its own animal personality, yin/ yang polarity and elemental qualities that the ancients used to assist them as they navigated life. There are twelve signs in the Zodiac Cycle which repeats every twelve years.

The Year of the Yang Wood Dragon has officially started on February 10th, 2024.

Year of the Dragon: 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024, 2032…

Complimentary Signs: Monkey and Rat. Secret Friend: Rooster. Against Dog.

Positive Qualities: Energetic. Confident. Ambitious. Intelligent. Generous.
Challenging Qualities: Unstable. Intolerant. Lack of persistence. Unrealistic.

The Dragon’s Feng Shui Mandala below can give you a sense of what the archetype of the Dragon is about and how it may influence you. 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 during the Year of the Dragon?”

“What is the direction? Why is that important?
How can I utilize the energy of the Dragon to my best advantage?
Is there something I’m wasting time on? Something I’m not aware of?
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. 

This past lunar year, the Animal has been the Yin Water Rabbit.


The beneficial qualities of the Rabbit are: Docile. Peaceful. Fertile. Tender. Quiet. Gentle. Cautious and Considerate. Her fertility and connection with Family, Community and Prosperity is legendary.

Her more challenging qualities are: Irresolute. Skittish. Stubborn. Timid. Escapist and tending to Procrastination.

Rabbit is considered by many to be a trickster, however, if you were able to make friends with her, she may have taught you some very important lessons about being aware of your environment and sensing when something’s amiss. If you ask her nicely on the way out, she may make some last minute recommendations: What did you learn from Rabbit? Is there something else to learn? Does Rabbit sense any danger moving into the Year of the Dragon? If so, is it near or far? Is there a place or activity that that would be better to avoid? What is her advice?

As you consider how Rabbit’s energy has affected you personally, ask:

“Is there anything that I need to do or let go of? How can I make sure the Rabbit energy exits completely?” 


Feng Shui and Grounding in The New Lunar Year

As you can imagine, the Lunar New Year is an excellent time to prepare for new plans and personal growth for the future using the Art of Feng Shui. The seeds that are planted now are very close to being activated in the Spring.


Use this Soul Prayer Chart with your imagination to uproot any destructive tendencies or karmic seeds that you would rather not activate and grow in this New Lunar Year:

“I uproot any harmful karmic seeds, tendencies or “stakes” that may still be planted in the energy of the past year.”

You may want to be specific about some Rabbit characteristics that may have come up in you last year. For example, were you overly timid? Skittish? Stubborn? Did you procrastinate or go down too many rabbit holes? This is a great opportunity tend your own garden before those seeds sprout again!

“I pull myself out of any ‘rabbit holes’ that I am still stuck in.”


Use this symbol with positive affirmations to dissolve destructive blueprints of past extreme or indulgent behaviors. For example:

“I surrender destructive blueprints of wishful thinking, misconceptions and no win situations that sabotage my personal growth and happiness.”

“I send them to the Light. My Future is bright and clear.”

Always remember to release pain or harmful energies into the Light!


Before you can ground effectively in the Lunar New Year, are there any superstitions or emotional fantasies that you would like to move beyond and release to the Light?

“I let go of external, artificial expectations about how I should be.”

Moon - Lunar New Year

Is there anything that’s pulling you out of sync with your natural cycles or the cycles of the Moon? Are you willing and able to let them go? If so, release them to the Light as well.

“I am in sync with the Cycles of Nature and the Moon.”

“I honor and respect my own, personal cycles.”


Confirm that you’re using the generative life force of the Air Element to facilitate your transition out of the old and into the new:

“I close old energy channels that drain or depress me.”

“I choose to use generative life force to energize my path forward into the Lunar New Year.”

“I connect with life affirming directions and channels of communication.”

Note: This symbol can help you whenever you feel stuck, exhausted or confused.


There may be some conflicts, shock or energy fixations leftover from the past year that block your ability to perceive things clearly. If that’s the case, you’re not alone! Use Condor Medicine to help you soften and relax them.

“I relax and allow any frozen or tense thoughts to melt away.”

Breathe deeply and imagine the lines going in towards the center are going loose and limp like cooked spaghetti noodles until the tension releases.

There may be more than one. Do yourself a favor by taking the time now to resolve them so that you don’t carry them into the new year.


Bring your senses into balance so that you can be more present for the transition and see things as they are.

“How am I perceiving this? Am I accessing chaos, destruction or balance?”

If you’re accessing chaos, consciously turn the volume of your senses down so you can regain balance. If what you’re accessing seems dead or hopeless, turn the volume up to a more balanced perception of how things really are.

“I perceive my situation clearly.”


Respectfully close the door on the Year of the Rabbit so that you can open the door for what’s in the next Lunar New Year.


Now that one door has closed completely, another can open properly. Prepare yourself by activating and aligning with the creative energy and Fire of your Soul!


Welcoming the Year of the Yang Wood Dragon – February 10th, 2024.

As mentioned before, the beneficial qualities of the Dragon are said to be: Energetic. Confident. Ambitious. Intelligent. Generous. His popularity is based on a reputation for attracting good luck and prosperity.

However, his darker, more arrogant characteristics are: Unstable. Intolerant. Lack of Persistence and Unrealistic.

A Dragon personality can be generous to a fault, intelligent to the point of intolerance and so ambitiously confident that they can move forward too fast and forcefully, causing destruction for those around them. At best, this tendency seems rude and at worst, forcing and pushing things through often causes nasty karmic backlashes, especially in the New Paradigm.

The Dragon archetype can guard very unrealistic ideals that it will then hold against itself. It’s very sensitive to pain and will unexpectedly lash out vigorously when hurt or under attack. Respect is an important virtue. Establishing common sense and stable limitations will help restrain his more extreme qualities.

Yes. The male, vital Dragon is a very different energy to operate under in contrast to his gentle predecessor, the feminine rabbit!

With these generalities in mind, what do you think you will need to do differently to work with this energy?

What is the message from this Archetypal Animal?

Are there any warnings? Opportunities?

Is there something specific you could ask about that would be beneficial?

What would you need to do to make friends with him?


As you contemplate the answers you’ve gotten through your intuition, reinforce your ability to communicate and manifest with the generative energy of the New Paradigm and communicate what’s most important for you to remember.


Now that you’ve gained this new perspective and awareness about the Lunar New Year, put your feet firmly on the ground and place your palms on the inside of your knees. Let the symbol help you spin out discordant energies so you can get grounded and bring clarity into the New Year.

“I am grounding with an awareness of the new energies.” 

“I ground in the New Paradigm in accordance with my highest good.”

Congratulations! You may want to get up and move around to integrate this new information and the insights that you’ve opened up to.

Midwinter Transitions

Intuitive Reading from the I Ching or Book of Change – Midwinter Transition.

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 enhance your midwinter transition from 2023 into 2024. 

Innovations Self-care Personal Growth-Environment

Chinese Zodiac

It’s nearly the end of the Chinese Lunar Year of the Rabbit, which will transition to the Dragon on February 10th, 2024, which is a very popular archetypal energy.

Midwinter Transitions - The Year of the DragonThe positive qualities of Dragon are: Energetic, Confident. Ambitious. Intelligent. Generous. However, the negative qualities can also be: Unstable. Intolerant. Lack of persistence. Unrealistic.

Complimentary Zodiac Signs are Monkey and Rat.

The Dragon’s Secret Friend is Rooster.

His energy goes decidedly against Dog.

However, don’t get ahead of yourself. The Dragon’s energy will not make itself known until much closer to the Lunar New Year on February 10th.

Stay present with the positive Yin Water Rabbit archetype that’s been in effect since last January 22nd, 2023. Call upon her gentle energy to invite more peace and prosperity into your life as we go through multiple midwinter transitions at the beginning of 2024.
Allow her quiet courage and cooperative nature to inspire new paths to take and ways to communicate with one another. If you’re interested, gaze softly at her Feng Shui Mandala and meditate on the nature of her energy.

The Year of the Rabbit - Midwinter TransitionsThe beneficial qualities of the Rabbit are: Docile. Peaceful. Fertile. Tender. Quiet. Gentle. Cautious and Considerate. Her connection with Family, Community and Prosperity is legendary.

Rabbit is also considered by many to be a trickster, yet those who’ve made friends with her can receive very clear warnings when  something’s amiss. Because she’s so finely attuned to the passing scents of predators, she knows quick and clever ways to escape from any danger she may sense in her vicinity. If you ask nicely, she will help you to do the same! Here are some questions to ask:

Does Rabbit sense any present concerns for you? If so, are they nearby or off in the distance? Is there a rabbit hole that would be better for you to avoid? What is her advice?

She’s also very good at sniffing out prosperity by finding the tastiest morsels, the coziest warrens and following the most profitable opportunities. Does she sense any valuable opportunities for you? What tasty morsels do you have the opportunity to enjoy in your near future? What changes would benefit you to make right now?

If you’ve been tired and exhausted, Rabbit recommends that you take a look at  the Completion Stage of our Happiness Power Circle for some solutions.

Influences from the Tarot

The Tarot Major Arcana Card for 2024 is # VIII: Strength (2 + 0 + 2 + 4 = 8)

The basic meanings for the Strength card are: Power. Action. Courage. Commitment and Magnanimity. The number 8 is the infinity symbol upright.

Subconsciousness is the Woman in this card and the image suggests that she has the Lion in complete control. This card conveys the potential for an expansion of consciousness that makes for greater control over our instinctual animal natures.

However, in reverse it can mean: Abuse of power. Despotism. Weakness or Discord.

In some Tarot decks, Justice is the number 11 and in others it’s the number 8.

The meanings for the Justice card are: Equity, Karma. Balance. Discernment. Descrimination. Illumination of truths.

Reversed: Imbalance. Bigotry. Bias. Prejudice. Excessive severity.

Needless to say, the playing out of Karma and karmic law is front and center in many people’s minds during this election year. The potential for anything to happen is possible. For a more positive outcome, the archetypal energy of Justice will need to be activated through a willingness to pierce through the darkness of denial and ignorance. Do we have the ability to do that? Are we willing?

That brings us back to the primary Tarot energy for the year –  Strength

Strength often represents the great cosmic force in the human organism called kundalini. Whenever working with the instinctual forces of nature, one must be careful and patient, otherwise things can go wildly out of control.

The key to awakening the power safely is to learn how to control your body, your mind and your emotions. The same is true for how you can effectively navigate the volatile energies that will rise and fall unexpectedly.

Centering yourself and learning how to stay balanced in difficult situations are the most important skills to master. 

Understanding the Larger Picture During this Midwinter Transition

With all these influences coming together, 2024 promises to be a year abundant with unconscious fears and misperceptions bubbling up to the surface. If you’re wise, you’ll take the time to examine them. Unconscious karma could be causing a problem that will throw you completely out of balance.

The reasons why things haven’t been going well are going to make themselves known. If you double down on resisting the Truth, it could be very painful. If you’re paying attention and willing to make corrections, you’ll find amazing opportunities to set things right that have been amiss for a very long time.

Truth Mandala - Midwinter Transitions

“The Truth has no Master and is indebted to none.
Therein lies its power to set us free.”


Changes in your environment have been very unstable and will continue to aggravate the volatile social and political environment. Once the Dragon comes in, the energy will really take flight! 

♦ The I Ching offers some good advice about how to change with all the changes.

♦ Poor communication is at the core of many of our difficulties. Using the I Ching flow of MODERATION will help turn things around.

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.

Navigate Volatility through MODERATION

The I Ching energy has been traveling in a multiple highway pattern for some time and it’s likely to remain that way for much of the next year.

Todays Intuitive Reading - ModerationWhenever that happens, it’s best to find the flow of Hexagram #15 MODERATION or “the Middle Road” to help you keep your balance. The original text offers some specific advice to follow for this Midwinter transition:

“This is a good time to bring some equilibrium to your more personal relationships. Examine your deepest feelings and see if you are harboring any extremes in your expectations or selfish desires in your motivations. Try to moderate any unrealistic ideals.

Your inner development now requires a modest and sincere attitude. Do not indulge in extremes of any sort, and instead strive for MODERATION in all that you do. It must be understood that acting with MODERATION means not only limiting the obvious excesses, but also exposing yourself to new areas of experience. Through MODERATION you can now gain some real control over your destiny. In this way you use the balancing tendency of the current forces to center yourself. This inner equilibrium aligns you with the tao, thus bringing you into harmony with forces that can work for you…”

Second Line

By maintaining a careful inner MODERATION, your outward actions gain influence and weight… A thoroughness in your actions brings good fortune.” ~ Hexagram #15 MODERATION, The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

Soul Resources Offers Support for Your Journey: 

As you can see, a confluence of energies is coming together during this Midwinter Transition that will require youth find new resources and to make new decisions in order to stay grounded and centered.

To help you exercise greater discernment at this pivotal juncture, we offer help and assistance through specially chosen Mind Exercises and Transformation Games that you can select through the SOS Symbol and your intuition.

SOS - Soul Oriented Solutions - Midwinter Transition
SOS Symbol

Good questions to ask are:

~ As I start out this year, what karmic seeds have been planted and are ready to be activated? 

~ Is that what I really want to receive?

~ What do I need to exercise greater discrimination about?


Gaze softly at the SOS symbol and ask for a number between 1 – 5.

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. Assess how you’re seeing things – Are you seeing it right?

Strength is sending you a message: “You’re not seeing something the way it really is. Step back and take a closer look at how past habits may be drawing you into a situation that is not in your best interests.”

2. Develop a clear perception of where you’re going.

Traveling the Middle Road may sound boring and uneventful, especially if you’re used to being flung from one extreme to the other. Strength wants you to know: “All true mastery is self-mastery and only a Fool would forge ahead into the darkness without a map and proper guidance from their Soul.”

3. Assess how well your projects are nourishing you.

How well are you nourishing your relationship with your projects and yourself? Before you take off in 2024, you may want to stop and take an honest assessment about how well they are nourishing you. Keep in mind that what you put out comes back to you – even if you’re putting out something that isn’t actually yours. If your efforts are not nourishing you, who are they nourishing?Strength says, “Knowing your limits and what brings you Joy will keep you centered and strong.”

Recommended Transformation Games and Mind Exercises to Keep Your Energy Clear of Debilitating Toxins. 

4. Chakra Balancing for Physical and Psychological Issues. 

Advanced Chakra Healing for Midwinter TransitionsThe sheer amount of changes happening in our environment require us to find innovative methods for staying clear of stuck and conflicting energies.

Kuan Yin has helped put together a selection of Transformation Games and Mind Exercises that delve into deep chakra healing designed to help you clear out toxic substances from your environment and psychological stress associated with the challenges of our times.

5. SOS Soul Oriented Solutions: Overwhelm Help Whenever You Need It ~

Like the many energies flying this way and that, the needs of people, organizations and institutions will skyrocket. If you are a person who normally wants to help, the limits to your capacity for compassion is going to be increasing strained. If you’re struggling during this midwinter transition, you can access these formulas at any time.

“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!

Suggestion: Early on in your journey with Snake, go through Open Your Heart and Make Friends to develop a truly co-operative relationship!

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 balanced 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 experience 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.”

“I pay attention to how my activities are affecting me and which ones are nourishing me in life affirming ways.”

With this next Circle, you can connect with and “fine-tune” your senses so that you can listen to your own body and Soul more clearly, rather than interference from the outside world. You can adjust them now, like the volume on a radio dial:

“I connect and rebalance my senses.

Not too high and not too low –
just right!”


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

How to Know if You’re Nourishing Yourself with Healthy, Supportive Projects.

Please Note: This game is Part II out of a Three Part Transformation Game. If you want to find out how well you’re nourishing yourself, go to Part I and if you want to know how your relationships are nourishing you, check out Part 3. 

Nourishing Healthy Projects ~

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

To do that, let’s utilize a Reiki 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 or rough edges in your energy field that are contributing to any problems you may be experiencing. Relax with this Circle and it’s affirmations until you feel your energy smoothing out:

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

“All shut downs and reversals are gently corrected.”

“The smooth, comforting energy of my Soul is gently coming through.”



Bring a project into your mind that you’re currently involved with and that is concerning you in some way. Perhaps there’s a great deal of emotional drama involved with it, a blockage 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? Is it positioned properly for you to be successful?

Are your plans for it current and up to date? What else do you intuitively get about it?



Do you currently have healthy boundaries around this project? Do you need to pull yourself back from any part of it? 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 pull my energy back from any harmful projects or wastes of my
time and energy.”

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



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


What do you need to change about how you’re relating to 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 about it that needs to be changed or updated? 
How would you put what you need into a positive intention?
Note: You may want to write down that intention so that you can remind yourself about it later.

Connect with New, Life Affirming Channels of Communication.

Install this symbol like a sort of filter for the Third Eye Chakra.

“I adapt to the generative flow of chi’ available
in the New Paradigm to the best of my ability.”

“I close down harmful energy channels from the past.”

“I connect to new, life affirming channels of communication.”


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 beneficial projects and 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 my Soul’s 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!

Communicating With Moderation In the New Paradigm.

Transformation Games - Extremism and Cult BehaviorKuan Yin has been helping us to transition out of the old status quo into a new paradigm based on equality, co-operation and balanced prosperity. Her advice about communicating through 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 Transformation Games 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 her words. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek.

First – Evaluate Your Situation for the Danger Signs of Shock ~

Communicating through Moderation
Are you reliving an old traumatic event? Are you experiencing one now?

Let’s face it. The past few years have been filled with one extreme and jarring piece of news after another. Shock is something that we deal with every day. It’s important to give yourself and others a break by realizing that you might be stuck in a survival pattern because you’ve been listening to so many shocking communications.

If you are overwhelmed by how someone is communicating, it’s very likely that you’re experiencing SHOCK from some past or present form of DANGER.

If you’ve been triggered by a traumatic event from the past, go to Healing Emotional Shock before going through this game.

If you’ve living through a shocking and traumatic event that’s happening right now, go to Resolving Shock from Traumatic Events first.

Once you’ve cleared up your experience of shock, this game will be much more effective for you…

Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for: Hexagram #29 Danger and #15 – Communicating 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.”

Todays Intuitive Reading - Moderation

Following the flow of MODERATION is the best way to make progress amidst great difficulty. The suggestion is to disengage from confusing extremes or opinionated attitudes and instead, follow the guidance that comes from within so that balance can be re-established. In almost any situation, if you are able to travel on the middle road between extremes, there will be improvement in whatever you undertake.

The second changing line from Hexagram #29 DANGER indicates that “The DANGER is great and cannot be surmounted with one single action…” ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing

That means MODERATION won’t just happen by itself. We need to apply ourselves and be devoted in our efforts to communicate in a moderate, balanced manner.

Communicating Through Moderation Will Put You In a Different Flow of Energy ~

As a general rule, MODERATION is the most sensible flow to follow, especially since so much chaos is playing out in the wake of environmental, political and social deterioration. The karma for confusing situations and contradictory mindsets has been fully activated and is best dealt with by following that middle road.

Just to clarify what we mean by karma here –
Karma = Cause & Effect
That means – I have a thought. I make a decision. I act on the decision.
Whatever I have followed through on has natural consequences.
Cause & Effect = Karma.

Most people are navigating through one or another of these general karmic patterns:

  1. Getting sucked into a negative malaise of mental, emotional, physical or spiritual decline.
  2. Stuck in indifference or denial – avoiding personal responsibility.
  3. Activated by past grievance, hatred or rebellious refusal to change.
  4. Getting scattered or revisiting survival patterns from the past, or
  5. Pulling themselves together into a centered position of empowered authority.

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.

Continue to relax into yourself for a moment or two while you contemplate the answer you get.

Regardless of what’s happening, you can make your life easier by letting go of old karmic patterns, agreements or ways of communicating that are ready to be transmuted. This game will help you do that.

Mind Body Integration

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

Feel free to move at any time in any way to help you embody your experience!

Let’s Begin By Calming the Stress in Your Nervous System.

Your nervous system and your ability to communicate are intricately interrelated. Use this Circle for homeostasis to gently collect information about your nervous system and what will help to calm you down.

“I calm down and relax into my breath.”

Take another few minutes to breathe deeply with the intention of coming back into rhythm with your Soul. Listen to your heartbeat and slow down. Let all that external noise from the outside move out.

If you’ve been in traffic, shopping at the super market or watching television, realize that your nervous system takes all that in – and often doesn’t know what to do with it.

It would probably help for you to move around, stretch – or make circular movements until you feel your tension releasing. Take all the time you need with this.


Restore your sense of Self with this Circle. Gaze at it softly and remember an activity that you’ve always liked – probably something creative that brings you joy. Relax into it or keep moving if you like.

Does a particular color come to mind?

If you can make it stronger, that’s the color that resonates with your Soul!

Soulful, creative activities help you to get back into your Center and being in your Center is a big help to communicating with moderation.

“I know who I am and I know what’s important to me.

I am learning to communicate through the energy of my Soul.”

If you like to sing, tone or hum, this would be a good time to enjoy them.


We’ve been going through an intense period of unstable and conflicting energies and you may be having quite a reaction to the changes that continue to play out. Bring your body back into balance by consciously breathing in on the count of three and slowly exhaling on the count of five. It’s helpful if you can breathe in through your nose.
Do that three or four times while you gaze softly at this Reiki Chakra Key that helps you stabilize your sacrum.

Release your attachment to extremism and cult behavior.
Continue breathing and bring your awareness to your tailbone.
What communication do you need to get in balance about?


Let Go of Harmful Karmic Agreements.

Now that you know what you really need to communicate about, use this Soul Contract Circle to help you release social, familial or religious contracts that are harmful or would pull you out of integrity with your Soul.

Gaze softly at the Circle and imagine you can put those contracts into a cleansing violet flame where they can safely burn up into ashes. These affirmations will get you started: 

“I release any agreement that says I’m powerless about what I communicate or how my Soul wants me to do it.
I free myself of other people’s expectations and harmful algorithms.
I let go of communication channels that are detrimental to me.”

“I communicate my needs and priorities clearly and calmly.”
“I release resentment, righteous indignation and hurt feelings.”
“I decide to communicate with care, compassion and _____________.”

What my Soul wants to communicate is of primary importance to me.”


Don’t Forget to Let Go of Your Old Agreements with the Status Quo.

Status Quo of the Old ParadigmThe old paradigm was a system built on extreme greed and exploitation enforced through oppressive social, religious and moral contracts. Most of us are still operating out of them to one degree or the other because they’ve been wired into how we go about doing our business.

It would be wise to release our agreements with that system and set up new agreements in the New Paradigm that are generative and life affirming. Especially agreements about how we communicate. This won’t just happen on its own. We need to be proactive and intentional if we want to move out of detrimental communications and behavior.

“I uproot my agreements to stay stuck in or comply with harmful communication patterns, flows and filters from the status quo.” 

“I release agreements to communicate through manipulations from the old status quo.” 
(shame, blame, inequity, deceit, greed, prejudice, intimidation, hatred, contradictions, dishonesty, co-dependence, etc.)

Release agreements with extremism and cult behavior.

“I decide to utilize a foundation for my communications that facilitates
simple principles of creating Common Ground for the Common Good
co-operation, equality and balanced prosperity).”

Let Go of Agreements to Communicate Through Destructive Yin Energy.

The flow of Water goes down and follows the path of least resistance. When it accumulates, it can easily get stuck and stagnate.

Dispel Destructive Yin Energy

Whenever this happens, communication becomes far more misconstrued, diverted, ambiguous, distorted and wishy-washy. This “stuck” condition relates to current social tendencies such as apathy, ambivalence, resistance, self-pity and denial.

Think about the difference between how sound travels under Water and how it travels through the Air. Underwater, sounds are slow moving and muffled. It could really help to release your agreements to utilize this very heavy energy flow.

“I release agreements to utilize Destructive Yin Energy to communicate, heal, do business or process emotions.”

Communicating through MODERATION utilizes the pure aspect of the Element of Water to process emotions and communications.

You can make a conscious choice to activate a new relationship with the Element of Water – fresh and purified to gently clear emotions, imbalances and muddy, murky communications.

This affirmation will help you make an actual adjustment in how you relate to and utilize this precious resource:

“I now make a conscious decision to use pure, life affirming Water qualities to process and communicate my emotions.”


Release Your Agreements to Get Pulled Back into Harmful


We need to be able to find new ways to communicate that aren’t just reruns of what has happened before.

“I release my agreements with contradictory, impatient or pushy behaviors
that pull me into chaos, violence or no-win situations.”

Extremism and Cult Behavior

“I choose to communicate in a positive way with the calm, generative flow of MODERATION and Divine Protection.”

“I let go of any agreements to get pulled into regressive, dangerous situations or _____________.”


Invoke Protection and Clarity of Mind By Aligning with Protection and a Generative Flow of Chi’ for the New Paradigm.

I adapt to the generative and positive energy flow of the New Paradigm.”

“Harmful energy channels from the past are closing down.”
“All parts of me connect to life affirming channels of communication.”


Make Some Corrections That Will Help You Communicate With Greater Moderation:

Let Go of Intentions You Don’t Need Anymore.

Check your old intentions with family, friends or business relationships that interfere with your ability to communicate more effectively. Release dishonest or extreme forms of communication like lying, coercion, cruelty, sarcasm, lashing out, intimidation or hypocrisy. Don’t forget criticism, condescension, people pleasing, mansplaining, micro-managing, martyrdom, stuffing or whining. These are all forms of manipulative communication that we’ve come to rely on, although they don’t help us move forward at all.

Think about communications you’ve received from old jobs or organizations you’ve been involved with over the years – religious institutions, political agendas, educational systems, ways of doing business, etc. You don’t have to hold space for all that confusing, conflicting information anymore!

“I let go of out-dated or harmful intentions about ___________.”

“I let go of harmful agendas that others want me to communicate.”

To replace them, consider carefully what new intentions would actually serve you now. Do they need to be clarified, simplified or re-organized? What do you need to have happen for yourself? “Based on my current needs, I need to _________.”


Make Decisions That Communicate Your Worth.

The decisions you make are an important part of the karma you create or are perpetuating. You can make significant changes by letting go of harmful or outdated decisions about yourself that compromise you or the integrity of your word. For example:

  1. The desire to fit in at any cost is one of the most fundamental ways people do harm to themselves. This desire can be so extreme, people often risk their wellbeing by deciding to leave themselves wide open to unscrupulous people who are willing to exploit them.
  2. The decision to hold space for other people or projects could also backfire because the psyche often takes what we say literally and actually tries to hold space or take possession of people, projects or goals that other people are actually responsible for. This is a common mistaken idea that inadvertently causes unnecessary anxiety, entanglements and power struggles.
  3. Another example is when we denigrate ourselves by deciding that we’re failures, inadequate, etc. Habitual negative decisions have consequences, especially if they become identities.

Instead of perpetuating that kind of karma, try some of these suggestions or come up with some new decisions of your own:

“I decide to communicate with self-respect and dignity. I am an intelligent, successful communicator.  I value my thoughts, words and deeds.”

“I decide to let go of holding space for other people’s issues, communications or harmful actions.” 

“I decide to let go of extremes. I now communicate in a balanced, moderate way,  based on inner guidance and self-worth.”

“I decide to __________. I communicate with moderation in the New Paradigm.”

“My honest, heartfelt communications have beneficial effects.”


Straighten Out Your Karma.

In times of increased confusion and chaos, it’s common for people who want to avoid responsibility to systemically unload their problems and karma onto whoever will accept them.

If you’ve been trained to feel anxious or sympathetic when other people are having a hard time, you might trap yourself by taking on more than your own karma. You can clarify this with the next Circle by asking these questions:

“What is my karma in this situation? What am I actually responsible for? How can I set things right in a way that’s genuinely helpful?”

“I let go of my karmic tendency to take on other people’s karma.
I am clear about what karma is mine and what karma belongs to others.
I let go of the temptation to repeat unpreferred karmic patterns.”

“I utilize my own beneficial karma to communicate _______________.”


Detach from Toxic Entanglements.

When we try to handle other peoples karma for them, we are inadvertently complicating things by preventing things from working themselves out naturally. To help you avoid this trap and set things right, use this symbol with the affirmations to release attachments to survival patterns from the past:

“I let go of attachments or obligations to unhealthy forms of communication.”
“I detach from fearful, sticky or toxic energies.”

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

Repair Jagged and Disjointed Energy.

Now clean that up by getting some help smoothing out contradictions, conflicts, reversals and other jarring energies with this Key:

“I remove reversals and jagged energies.”

“I have a clear and direct connection with my Soul,
my resources and my own karma.”

Go Deeper With These DNA Symbols for Epigenetic Healing.

Think about how you’ve been trained to communicate. Relax and sink into this sequence of DNA symbols that will help you let go of inter-generational trauma around communication. Imagine that nasty old DNA strands are moving out of you and to the Light…

“I surrender to not knowing the answer…

… I entrust myself to the Divine.”

Once they have cleared out, imagine a beautiful golden DNA strand from your Soul is connecting into your heart center and integrating.


Repeat the Process with this DNA Symbol:

“I let go of needing to be right…  

… I now focus on solutions that are respectful to all.” 


“I ask Divine Mother and Father to help me detach from manipulative energies, agendas and algorithms.”


Empower Your Communications:

Use this Soul Prayer Chart to empower these changes gently. Be sure that you spend all the time you need with it. Integrate aspects of The Essential Human if needed.

“I exist and connect with my heart and Soul to empower my needs and highest good.”
“I am empowered by my Soul to communicate ____________.”


Dissolve the Blueprints of Harmful and Extreme Communications.

Use this symbol to identify any mental, emotional or spiritual patterns that are keeping you attached, pulling you back or holding you down. See them dissolve completely as you surrender them to the Light:

“I dissolve any miscommunications, misunderstandings, dogmatic assumptions or mistaken ideas that obscure clear communication.”

Dissolve Patterns of Extremism and Cult Behavior

“I let go of my conflict and co-dependence and surrender them to the Light.
I dissolve ineffective survival patterns and any connection I have ever had to them.”

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!


Close the Door on All that Suffering and Miscommunication.

Close the door on holes or pathways that lead back to poor or extreme communications. Take all the time you need. There are probably a lot of them.

“All holes are sealed and healed.”
“I follow the direction of my Soul’s protection.”

Close the door on extremism and cult behaviors

“I let go. I stop communicating through abuse, dishonesty, manipulation, cruelty or violence.”

Close the doors both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body.


Finish By Repairing and Refocusing the Auras Around Your Body.

“I refocus and repair my auras.”

“My auric field is strong and organized to protect my health and integrity.”


Congratulations for Communicating with MODERATION on the Middle Road! You probably feel much more balance. Go back to the Initial Evaluation for the game and see what’s changed.

Now that you’ve made choices about the flow of moderation you can bring order and new happiness into your environment!

“For many people, following MODERATION and the middle road 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.”
