During this pandemic, we’re all learning what we need to do to take good care of ourselves. The path of MODERATION is often the key.
There is no shortage of information and advice out there about what we should and should not do to take care of ourselves. Early on in my experience as a medical intuitive, I discovered that there is no “one way” to protect ourselves or heal that works for everyone. We are all unique individuals with our own strengths, weaknesses and preferences – our own karma, if you will.
I also learned that what works today may not work tomorrow. That has to do with circumstances; something may have suddenly changed that has to be dealt with. A shock may cause you to loose your footing and get off balance. Or, there may be some other spiritual or emotional blockage that needs to be released before a clear solution can appear. There could be underlying toxins in the system, the timing may not be right or the body could be so challenged by something like a virus that it’s unable to communicate properly.
So, given all the variables present in this extremely difficult time, how can you take good care of yourself?
A New Perspective from an Old Friend
Kuan Yin is a time honored and respected spiritual guide in the healing arts. She has been helping us to transition from the old paradigm based on greed and fear to a new paradigm of equality, co-operation and sustainable prosperity. Her advice on how to take good care of yourself springs from the I Ching, an ancient book of change and divination that follows the flow of the cosmos. Because of that, her insight comes from a different perspective than ours.
Introduction: Kuan Yin’s Readings and Transformation Games can help you get present and see things through a new perspective – one that comes from your innermost knowing. Simply relax and gaze at the Intuitive Learning Circles while contemplating Kuan Yins words. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek. Here’s an example:
“I use them to become aware of confusion, lies, conflicts and self sabotage.”
“I use them to discern the difference between healthy life force and an invading energy.”
“I gain clear awareness of beneficial resources, solutions, opportunities and _________.”
Note: As you gaze at a Circle, it may move around, change color or spin. The lines may disappear and reappear again. That’s okay. It just means that they’re working with your subconscious mind to help you make needed changes. You’ll know the adjustment has been made when the energy subsides. Take all the time that you need. Your Soul is in charge!
Now, let this Circle help you balance all of your senses so that you are listening to your own body, instead of all that discordant noise from the outside world! The volume may be turned up too high, or it could be too low.
Take several breaths and relax. Breathing into your belly and exhaling long and slow. This is helpful to every part of your nervous system.
“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 with other aspects of learning, such as common sense, logic, observation and instinct.”
Mind Body Integration
Feel free to move at any time in any way to help you embody your experience!
Next, make sure that you are fully present.
Continue to relax 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 most efficiently located there to help you manifest, create happiness and maintain health.
In stressful times, it’s pretty common for the Essential Self to get closed off, misplaced or dissociated. You can correct that now.
Use this Soul Star for the 3rd Chakra to clear out any harmful debris or invading energies from that area. Take all the time that you need.
This next Circle calls in the unique energy signature of your Soul so that you can synchronize with your environment appropriately.
Imagine that you can “plug in” at your Solar Plexus Chakra to relieve irritability, strengthen your immune system and clear out extraneous confusion. Use these affirmations to help you:
“I am plugged in and my life flows with ease.”
“I know who I am and what is important to me.”
The Fourth Chakra is also known as the Heart Chakra because it’s the center of our spiritual connection – the bridge between our bodies and our spirit.
It also regulates both the respiratory and circulatory processes. When it’s properly balanced, the energy has a green vibration with a positive charge; like a beautiful light, radiating out.
As you softly gaze at this Key, keep breathing until you sense positive energy radiating out from your heart center.
Allow the Soul Star for the Heart Center to help you:
“My Heart Chakra is connected, open and balanced. Its light is radiating out.”
Once you feel open and relaxed, you’ve tuned up your energy and you’re ready to start playing the game!
Get out a pen and some paper. You may want to journal what comes up.
Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for:
Hexagram # 15 – Moderation – How to Take Good Care of Yourself in the New Paradigm
“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 MODERATION as the best way to make progress by disengaging from harmful extremes and following the truth and guidance that comes from within. In almost any situation, if you’re able to walk a moderate and middle road, there will be improvement in whatever you undertake.
Finding Moderation and Following that Path ~
As a general rule, MODERATION is a sensible flow to follow whenever there’s so much chaos and confusion that it’s hard for you to tell what’s going on. In the midst of chaos, unpreferred karma (cause and effect) can be easily triggered. For many people, soul contracts have been completed and need to be released to prevent unnecessary health problems. Generally, people are probably either:
- Falling into a downward spiral of mental, emotional, physical and/or spiritual health.
- Stuck in rebellion or an obstinate refusal to change.
- Getting scattered or pulled back into regressive patterns from the past.
- Pulling oneself together into a centered position of empowered authority.
As you softly gaze at this Circle that accesses karmic seeds, see if you’re currently experiencing one of these situations. Ask yourself:
“Am I generally experiencing situation #1, 2, 3 or 4?”
It could easily be a mix, depending on your mindset and what stage of the karma you’re living through.
Whatever it is, you can take good care of yourself by letting go of any karmic agreement that is complete – over and done with or that’s causing you harm in any way. This game will help you do that.
Let Go So You Can Bring In New Ways to Take Good Care of Yourself.
Use this Soul Contract Circle to help you identify and release the agreements. It can be helpful to imagine that each agreement is like a lock attached to every vertebrae of your spine. To let go, start at the bottom of the line and move up your spine – unlocking any harmful agreements as you go all the way to the top of your neck. Here are some examples:
“I unlock any agreement to sacrifice my health or place myself in harms way.”
“I let go of any lies, poor guidance or assumptions that block my ability to heal.”
“I discontinue activities or beliefs that put me at risk.”
“I release pathways, false concepts and patterns of behavior that lead to conflict, confusion, hardship, over-indulgence or ________, etc.”
Reclaim Your Power:
“I decide to gently integrate healthier patterns that upgrade my happiness and well-being – in accordance with my highest good.”
“I exist and am empowered to take good care of myself.”
Take all the time you need to really relax with this one.
Clear Out the Clutter:
What is stressing you out? What do you need to pay attention to? This is a good opportunity to clear your mind of any outdated intentions or thoughts that have been interfering with your health or happiness.
As you look at this Reiki Key, take the time to clear the cobwebs out of your head. Include old energies or grievances with family, friends or business relationships. Clear out harmful agendas from social institutions, religious practices, cults or partisanships. Release attachments to completed projects, places you’ve lived, outmoded forms of transportation, communication, consumerism or business, etc.
By letting go of all the cobwebs, you free up a lot of energy that’s better spent on envisioning your health and vitality.
Once you’ve cleared your mind and calmed down, ask yourself: “What can I do to help myself?” or “What might be grounding?”
Make Commitments to Your Good Health and Well-being:
Because of the chaos involved, there aren’t many guarantees out there. Making any kind of reliable prediction is next to impossible. You’re going to need all the presence and energy you have to help you during times such as these. Gently look at the next Circle while you affirm these positive affirmations:
“I am flexible and able to adapt to what’s needed.”
“I notice disturbances in my health. I ask for and receive reliable help when I need it.”
“I make wise choices about my health and well-being.”
“I let go of ______. I prepare for ______.
I take care of ______. I am open to ______.”
Strengthen Your Energy Field:
“I decide to build an attraction field for _________, _________, _______.” Suggestions: excellent health, healthy boundaries, nourishment, equality, good company, cooperation, sustainable prosperity, etc.
Focus On Your Priorities:
Use this Circle to help you shift your focus to what really matters.
“I make a choice to focus my attention on hope, health, sustainable prosperity and ______________.”
Develop Healthy Reciprocity:
Take time to organize your energy properly so that you can manifest your intentions.
“I nurture my body, mind and spirit healthfully, in alignment with my highest good and my highest good is returned to me.”
Once you feel in the flow, ask yourself: “Are there any habits or behaviors that would be helpful for me to change?”
Consider how well you’re nourishing yourself and make notes so that you’ll remember.
“Are there any foods, especially herbs, teas, vegetables or fruits that would benefit me? Am I getting enough fresh water? Is there anything to stay away from?
Is there anything I’m consuming that’s causing a problem?”
“Am I approaching my circumstances correctly? If not, can I tell what’s needed?”
Relax for a few minutes to consciously breathe and relax. Imagine what kind of exercise you could do that would be most helpful today.
“Am I getting enough oxygen through breathing, fresh air and exercise?”
“Is there anything I need to let go of?”
“Do I need more relaxation? If so, what might help me?”
Your body needs sunlight to stimulate good health and keep your immune system strong.
“Am I getting enough Vitamin D-3?”
“Am I getting enough sunlight to make it?”
“Am I getting the right nutrition to assimilate it properly?”
“If not, what would help me with this?”
Evaluate Your Current Actions or Intentions.
“Are there any activities I’m planning that would be dangerous?”
“Are there any threats that I need to be aware of?”
If so, can I tell what they are? How can I follow a more MODERATE and beneficial path?”
Raise the Vibration of Your Life Force:
Use this Reiki Key to clear out any harmful energies, entanglements or conflicts so that you can raise your energy level.
What do you need to pay attention to?
What stresses you out?
When that happens, what do you need to do?
What might be grounding for you?
Let Go of Destructive Patterns:
Now it’s time to dissolve mental and emotional patterns that pull you off track. Use this symbol for dissolving destructive blueprints to identify and let go of self-sabotage or any societal or familial pattern that still affects your health in a negative way. See them disappear as you send them to the Sun:
“I dissolve destructive energy and any connection I have ever had to it.”
“I dissolve ___________________.”
Close the Pathways to Suffering:
Once the patterns are cleared, close the door to pathways that lead to extremes, unnecessary suffering or danger.
“I decide to close the door on harmful pathways. I follow the direction of healthy protection.”
In order to actualize the benefits of what you’ve done with this game, it’s important to get grounded. Put both feet on the ground and let this Circle help you get grounded in a new paradigm of equality, cooperation and sustainable prosperity.
Finish with Gratitude:
At this point, you’re probably feeling much calmer and more in balance. Finish with this affirmation:
“I am grounded in gratitude and appreciation for the help I receive.”
“Learning how to take good care of yourself at this time is an opportunity to go within and expel deep patterns of fear and conflict. May we all arise from those patterns, much as a beautiful lotus arises from the muck and mire at the bottom of a pond.” ~ Kuan Yin
Now is a good time to move around or take a nice walk if you can. Enjoy being out in the Sun and fresh air.
Note: Go through this game as often as you need to, especially if you’re experiencing health challenges.
