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.”

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.

Spider Medicine

Lessons About Sustainable Prosperity from Spider Medicine ~

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:

Spider Medicine from Gifts from the Rainforest15. Spider Medicine – spider understands how to position herself for abundance. Patience and faith can always be rebuilt under any circumstance.

Are you connecting with sustainable prosperity? If not, what would help?

Healing Action: Disconnect from wealth based on greed, revenge, scarcity, warfare or betrayal. Connect with natural prosperity. Then, reweave your web with light and positive energy to fuel your dreams.


Weaving the Web of Abundance

Spiders have wisdom that
any creatures do not possess.
They carefully choose their territory and construct
their webs in a place that is heavily traveled, yet unseen.
Once they have positioned themselves properly,
they wait patiently for opportunity to come their way.
They are confident and alert,
fully prepared to take quick action for their own benefit
when the time is right.
If, by chance, their web is torn down,
they do not waste time in discouragement.
They merely spin it again in no time at all
and continue their watch.
The spider has complete faith in the abundance of nature.

 


Mind Body IntegrationMind Body Integration

For best results, gaze softly at the Circle both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the communication is more complete.

Intuitive Learning Circles help you access your inner guidance and self-confidence to make proactive changes. Simply relax and gaze at the Circles while contemplating its message and positive affirmations. Your intuition will come forward and give you the help that you seek.


Further Exploration into Spider Medicine:

Spider Medicine - Animal Totems
Spider Medicine

How are you using your energy? The wisdom of Spider Medicine is encouraging you to understand how your personal energy, or mana, has more real value to you than any man-made form of currency. If you are spending undue amounts of energy on a relationship, project or situation and getting little in return, it’s time re-examine your commitment. Persistence turned against oneself becomes stubbornness.

Are you stubbornly holding onto ideas that are actually blocking you from Love? If you are, ask your heart, “What can be done about it?” Follow the guidance you get and watch the situation improve.

We give money power which can be used to affirm life or destroy it. You’re being asked at this time what the relationship between money and prosperity really is. Gaze deeply into the Circle and ask: “What do I fear about money? Am I using it appropriately now? What needs mending?”

Perhaps you’re afraid of having it, not having it, what you might do with it or how it might change you. You might also be tapping into a collective fear about money. Reclaim your power and take this opportunity to disengage from any lies, false agendas or misconceptions. 

Now could also be a good time to handle business around money that you’ve left hanging and unfinished. Engage your Soul through the Circle again and ask: “Am I using my resources for life affirming growth or am I falling into a dark web of denial and destruction?” 

Do you have your own web for things like self-esteem and self-worth or do you depend on someone else’s web for those things? Do you have a safe place to hold positive energy for your projects, relationships and health? If not, ask Spider to help you weave your own web for sustainable prosperity using the spiritual substance of Love.

If there’s a hole in your web or it’s been torn down completely, ask Spider for guidance about how to start again. Re-position yourself in your center and begin weaving with threads of Hope.

Connecting with others through Love requires an internal connection with Soul Virtues like Faith, Trust, Patience, Generosity and Gratitude. It’s time to develop some. It may seem like a lot of of effort, however, what you put out to the Universe will be returned to you.

Letting Go and Moving On

Help for Moving On from Deteriorating Situations

Transformation Game - Moving OnMany people are having a difficult time being stable because they are getting pulled out of the present by conditioning and emotional attachments to the past. You can get grounded in the New Paradigm of cooperation and equality by going through Kuan Yin’s I Ching Reading for moving on.

“If you are experiencing a situation where there is:

  • a great deal of incompetence
  • argumentative persons
  • societal discord
  • a break up in friendship or family relations
  • refusal to participate in cooperative ventures or
  • depressed health due to a toxic environment

The situation is definitely in the flow of the I Ching Hexagram #23 – DETERIORATION.

In times such as this, prideful displays of power will absolutely backfire. This is not the time to push your expectations or agendas. Withdraw and consolidate your energy as best as you can. Take care and stay strong within yourself. Do nothing to push your personal agenda regarding this particular situation and withdraw as much investment of your time or money as you reasonably can. Unwillingness to let go will most probably result in loss.

I connect my consciousness with Hope.

The best things to do when dealing with DETERIORATING situations is to take care of yourself very sensibly and to find acceptance of the times within yourself. Be generous and kind to those you care about. Maintain your inner connection to Hope.

Keep your focus on those things that are working. They are the important opportunities that are available to you now.

Keep emotional reactions to a minimum and refrain from jumping to conclusions. Meditate, surrender to the fact that all things must end. Know that eventually there will come a change for the better. 

If you deal with a situation of DETERIORATION with an attitude of ‘I’m going to fix this’ or ‘I need to stop what’s happening,’ you will actually be giving the situation more fuel and prolonging it, rather than letting it die out on its own. When you let go, Nature can take its course. In most cases, the negativity will feed on itself and die out naturally. This reality may be unpleasant however, acceptance is what is called for.” 

Here’s some help through a Transformation Game called “Letting Go and Moving On.”

Gently gaze at these Intuitive Learning Circles one at a time and consider the question or affirmation that goes with each Step. This process helps you to become aware of what’s bothering you, so that you can make a different choice to use your energy more productively and in tune with your Inner Guidance.

 Step 1:

What is a situation around you now that is DETERIORATING? Trust the message that comes through from your deepest, wisest guidance.

If your mind is blocked or blank go here and read about Fixated Thoughts or Shock>

 

 

Step 2:

Enhance your inner guidance by calming your senses and bringing them into balance. Some may be turned up too high and some may be too low. Relax and allow your eyes to rest gently on the Circle below.

Mind Body IntegrationTake some deep breaths and let your shoulders drop. Adjust the volume to your senses. Do that both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body to achieve greater mind body integration.

 

Step 3:

Release your conditioning to personally attach to that situation.

“I uproot the conditioning, beliefs and behaviors that are pulling me into this DETERIORATING situation.”

“I release them to the Light where they can safely be transformed.”

 

Step 4.

Can you  identify the emotion that pulls you towards the DETERIORATING situation?

Once you have identified what you’re feeling, take a moment and just relax into it. Could it be a phobia, an obsession or a compulsion?

“I accept that this emotional state is present and that it must change. All things eventually change.”

If you can, rub your shoulders and neck for a minute or two. The more you relax and accept what you’re feeling, the easier it will release and dissipate.

Step 5:

Bring your awareness now to your body. Go to your solar plexus area and open your Third Chakra, the home to your Essence and “gut instincts.”  

Let go of any toxic energy and bring the chakra into balance.

 

Step 6:

Bring your awareness to your Heart Center. Allow this Reiki Chakra Key to help you open and balance it.

Keep relaxing and breathing into it. Eventually, you will be able to feel life energy radiating out. The light of your Heart Chakra is shining!

 

Step 7.

Gaze softly at this Chart that connects you with the empowerment of your Soul. Imagine that your energy system can adapt to the changes that are needed. Continue to relax and breathe as you use this affirmation:

“When it comes to the situation of _________, I exist and am empowered to manifest my highest good.”

 

Step 8:

Connect with your Soul’s unique vibration and energy. Continue to relax and breathe as you use this affirmation:

“I am resonating with the vibration of my Soul.”

“I strengthen my unique gifts and talents.”

 

Step 9:

Use this Chart to help you detach from negative energies around your situation. These may include energies from other people, even family members.

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

“I release all attachments and energy signatures that are not from my Soul.” 
“I detach from destructive energies, lies, curses, sabotage and illnesses.”

 

Step 10:

Consciously close down any destructive energy channels that are coming from the DETERIORATING situation.

“I am no longer connected to that DETERIORATING situation.”

 

Step 11.

Now, get fully present. Use this affirmation to help you:

“I live in the present and deal with what is.”

If you’re having trouble getting present, it can help to close your fingers into fists and open them again, several times. If you get overwhelmed or feel a strong emotion come up, go back to Step #2 and repeat the process to relax and dissipate the emotion.

 

Step 12:

Now that you are present, ask your deepest wisest guidance:

“What is an action I can take that will help me to move on?”

Take as much time as you need to reorganize your thoughts and energy around positive action.

 

Step 13:

Consciously re-direct your energy and attention toward a situation you want to encourage instead. Move your attention and energy away from the DETERIORATING situation.

“I turn my energy toward productive activities and plans.”

 

Step 14:

Use this symbol to consciously release any remaining mental, emotional or spiritual baggage that’s interfering with your freedom. 

You can visualize them as dark clouds or entanglements that you surrender to the Light to be transformed. Stay with it until you feel they’re completely gone.

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!

Step 15:

Finish the game by closing off the pathways in your mind that lead back to the DETERIORATING situation.

“I let go and seal off the ways I prolong or maintain suffering for myself or anyone else.”

Closure for Mind Body Healing

Congratulations!

Having the faith that you don’t need to be in control of a DETERIORATING situation is a big help in coming to terms with change and moving on in a positive way.

Take Good Care of Yourself Through Moderation

In these stressful times, 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

Transformation Games - Take Good Care of YourselfKuan 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 equitable co-operation and sustainable prosperity for the Common Good. 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.

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 connect with my five senses to perceive what I need now to be healthy.”

“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 it’s working with the positive affirmations and 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.

 

Excellent! 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…

Get out a pen and some paper. You may want to journal what comes up.

Now you’re ready to start playing the game!

 


Welcome to the I Ching Reading and Transformation Game for:

Hexagram # 15 – Moderation – How to Take Good Care of Yourself in the New Paradigm

Transformation Game - Take Good Care of Yourself

“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 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:

  1. Being pulled into a negative spiral of mental, emotional, physical or spiritual health.
  2. Stuck in frustration, rebellion or an obstinate refusal to change. 
  3. Getting scattered or revisiting regressive patterns from the past, or
  4. Pulling themselves 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. Imagine that each agreement is like a lock attached to every vertebrae of your spine. To let go, see if you can access the original Soul Contract that started the whole pattern for you. Start at the bottom of the line and and the bottom of your spine at the tailbone to find the contract that has the strongest emotional charge. Release it first. You can imagine it burning up or breaking apart. 

Then, 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 all agreements that sacrifice my health or place me 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:

Take all the time you need to really relax into this chart with these positive affirmations:

“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.”

“I nourish myself with healthy habits.”

 

Clear Out the Clutter:

As you look at this Reiki Key, clear your mind of  hurtful entanglements, confusion or false guidance. By letting go of all the cobwebs, you free up a lot of energy that’s better spent on your good health and vitality.

“I clear my mind and calm down.”


Now it’s time to assess what’s going on for you. What is your main concern at this time? Is anything stressing you out? What do you need to pay attention to? Is this is a good opportunity to clear your mind of any outdated intentions or thoughts that have been interfering with your health or happiness?

 

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 check into these positive affirmations and see what applies in your case:

“My Soul is in charge.”


“My new agreement is to stay present in my body and follow my inner guidance – calmly and honestly.”

“I am flexible and able to adapt to what’s needed.”

“I notice what’s happening with my physical, mental and spiritual health. I ask for and receive reliable help when I need it.”

“I make wise choices about my health and well-being.”

“I make sure I’m heading in the right direction.”

“I slow down and ______.  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 slow down and shift your focus to what really matters.

“I make a choice to focus my attention on hope, health, sustainable prosperity and ______________.”

 

Evaluate Your Energy:

To successfully accomplish your priorities, it’s essential to assess the energy of your life force or chi’ and how you’re using it. The next few Circles will help you monitor how that’s going. Check in with this Circle to start.

“Am I interacting with auspicious and generative life energies?”
“Am I correctly positioned in my Solar Plexus to receive them properly?”
“Is my Power Animal present and working with me to manifest my intention?”

If not, what would help?

“I strengthen my ability to tap into the auspicious life energies available to me and position myself correctly to receive them.”

 

Protection and Self-care:

It’s just as important to be aware of how well you’re protecting yourself.

“Am I protecting myself properly?”
“Am I inadvertently tapping into harmful or inauspicious energies?”
“Is my Power Animal present and working with me for protection?”

“I decide to disconnect from harmful energies and stop tapping into them.
I am centered correctly to receive the protection of my Soul.”

 

Develop Healthy Reciprocity:

What you put out comes back to you, so it’s important to put out a clear and direct message with your intentions. Too many contradictory or poorly thought out intentions can create confusion, conflict and even chaos! Take time to organize your energy in alignment with Cause and Effect to help you manifest clear intentions.

“I put out __________ in alignment with my highest good and __________ is returned to me.”

 Once you feel in the flow, ask yourself: “Am I working in alignment with Cause and Effect? Am I remembering to include play and to have fun? Are there any habits or behaviors that would be helpful for me to change? “

 

Physical Nourishment:

Now let’s turn to the physical aspect of taking care of yourself. 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 physical challenges correctly? If not, can I tell what’s needed?”

 

Breathing and Oxygen:

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?”

Emotional Calm

“Am I functioning with too much tension? Am I having a lot of emotional reactions? If so, what might help me?”

 

Sunlight:

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 unwise?”

“Are there any external conditions I need to be aware of?”

If so, can I tell what they are? What do I need to be cautious about? How can I follow a more MODERATE and beneficial path?”

 

Check the Vibration of Your Life Force:

The First Chakra located at the base of your pelvis (sometimes called the Root or Sacral chakra) governs the general level of your vitality. Do you sense any unusual sluggishness, sensations or low vibrations? This is a good opportunity to clear your foundation of any outdated intentions or energies that interfere with your health or happiness. 

As you look at this Reiki Key, visualize any heaviness, illness or toxic energy moving out of your root and expelling to the Light.

“What can I do to help raise my vibration? What might me get grounded?”

 

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 ___________________.”

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 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.”

 

Ground:

In order to actualize the benefits of 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.

“I finish by being fully grounded in the New Paradigm.”

 

Finish with Positive Energy in the New Paradigm:

At this point, you’re probably feeling much calmer and more in balance. Finish with this affirmation:

“My mind is open and ready to receive generative life force.”

Congratulations!

Take Good Care of Yourself

“Learning how to take good care of yourself at this time is an opportunity to go within and expel contradictory patterns of fear, conflict and apathy. 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.
