Sometimes the iChing just tells you how it is.

Innocence

Hexagram # 25

Your innermost nature is innocent, free from blame and always spiritually worthy. Only the outer persona – the role we play – is subject to blame. Being human, one gets subject to misfortunes. This is a time to be authentically self-forgiving for all that you think you have done wrong. Your deepest and most natural self is not to blame. Suffering comes by not knowing what you are underneath all those layers of personality. Be natural and unpretentious. This hexagram is a reminder that underneath there is innocence.

 

“Staying Present– This line is a reminder that every step of the way is its own destination. Put your attention fully on the task at hand. Results will come, but they are subject to a whole-hearted persistence with respect to the current step.

Embracing Problems”– Misfortune can come without rhyme or reason. It is the way of time and earthly life. Attempting to live completely free of problems is a trap. Learning to embrace and see problems in a new light is real freedom.

 

Heaven/Creativity

Hexagram #1

Heaven signifies the ultimate creative force. This hexagram formed of six unbroken lines signifies the purest form of power and positive energy. An expression of pure truth and strength that exceeds all worldly, physical or immediate concerns. A time of profound thought and conscious creation.

Fire Monkey

Gong Hei Fat Choy! Better late than never. How is everyone? Did yall survive whatever? Oh my, January was crazy. So, Happy Chinese New Year, the Year of the Fire Monkey. I love this self portrait by Frida, with one of her pet monkeys, a fixture in her work. I just started a condensed version of Brit Lit to make up for the needed class, cancelled by my school, and have a Geography exam on Wednesday. So I am going to share with you a bit from others on the Fire Monkey.

2016 Year of the Fire Monkey

By Tanaaz

On February 8, 2016 we will shift out of the year of the nurturing Yin Wood Sheep and into the year of the passionate Yang Fire Monkey.

As the name suggests, the year of the Yang Fire Monkey is all about having fun, taking risks, being proactive and going after what you truly desire.

Yang energy is action based energy, so 2016 will really favor making bold decisions, getting ahead and staying assertive.

This is the perfect year to create change, follow your heart and stir things up a bit by being daring and taking chances.

The Fire Monkey is smart and ambitious, and it is through taking risks that it is often rewarded.

This year we are all going to feel challenged to take some risks and leap from tree to tree in order to move forward.

2016 is also a great year to follow your passions and to expand and grow your income. In fact investing, entrepreneurship and finances are all likely to be lucky endeavours this year as long as you pay attention to the details and know who to trust.

Even though the year of the Fire Monkey is considered to be very lucky in most areas, it is important to remain observant and aware of who you trust and who you enter into business with.

The year of the Fire Monkey can also be an impulsive one, so definitely remember to look before you leap and to not get too ahead of yourself. If things seem to good to be true, they probably are in the year of the Fire Monkey.

The ego can also tend to shine during the year of the Fire Monkey. When using this energy in a positive way, the year of the Fire Monkey can help you to get your personal affairs in order and to take calculated risks in order to achieve your dreams, desires and goals.

Let’s look at a smattering of ideas, shall we?

Well before January 5th, 2016 when Mercury goes Retrograde. Great way to start the year, Well I just discovered that, so moving forward. Doreen says, the angels say, “we are going through energy reassignment.” My friend has been telling me that as well.

Here is Anna Merkaba at Sacred Ascension‘s take:

“Beginning December 25th, 2015 with Uranus stationing direct, all major planets in our solar system will be moving direct/forward, Manifestations can be quickened during this time.

Through the planetary alignments you shall feel a difference in your understanding of self. You shall be presented with various outcomes and timelines from which to choose from in order to continue your mission here on earth, and the timelines that you shall see, shall be seen by all and selected by all whom you are to be walking with on your path.  A mutual cognition of a new reality structure and a mutual agreement upon the timeline and experiences to be had shall be made…

…For through fully aligning yourself with the Fifth Dimensional frequencies you shall then be able to manifest the realities of your choice! You shall then be able to fully move into  a new phase, whereby all the senses of your present cognition and those unbeknownst to you yet, shall activate and allow you to see beyond the veil, allowing you to experience a different type of reality of BEing, allowing you to walk through veil of forgetfulness arriving at the very core of your own being, communicating freely with those of the higher dimensions and those of the third dimensional earth…

…The acquisition of new technological prowess has allowed humanity to enter a new era of technologically driven automation. And it is through the technology sector of your world, that your earth shall see a rise in new biological structures which will allow you to propel the knowing of your true origins and agendas placed before you by your higher selves upon the entrance into the Matrix System of Planet X…

For through the knowing of your past the knowing of your the true origins, humanity shall be able to take the final step into the destination of full awakening, into the destination of full awakening to that which they are, and propel themselves further still…

….It is through the new seedings, who shall walk freely amongst humans, carrying the collective consciousness of all who have come and gone. It is through these new beings the “new kids”, who shall transform said energies and absorb said energies and erase the past in human cognitive understanding, that the change that you all are longing to uphold shall take place.

It is through your endeavors and the endeavors of your kind shall the earthlings finally be able to grasp the understanding of Karma, and release it once and for all from their memory banks. And it is through the endeavors of each and every single soul presently occupying time and space continuum on the planet known as Gaia that the experiment of the 3rd dimension shall come to an end…”

Here is a post for the Let’s Go Retro Blogging Challenge!

Renewed and refreshed.  It has been way too long since I have practiced Qigong on a daily basis. I have wanted to do so but…. haven’t. So today I meet Tashi my new Qigong teacher. Tashi is an  an Internal Martial Artist and energy cultivator since ‘95. Tashi had study Auricular Medicine, Cranial Sacral, DNA Reprogramming, Light Body’s, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Meditation under a number of exceptional masters in their fields.

What a great class. Feeling the Chi once again coarsening through my body. Now to reestablish the discipline to continue everyday.

Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention. The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe.

Here is a video, 11 minutes of instruction, movements starts at 11 minutes.

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your

love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You

yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.
