Does Everything Seems Unstable and Chaotic? Finding Moderation is the Key to Coming Back into Balance.
Kuan Yin has been helping us to transition from the old economic paradigm based on greed and fear to a new paradigm of co-operation and sustainable prosperity. Her advice about finding 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 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 # 15 – Finding Moderation
“Let’s use the analogy that describes this period of time to a massive highway system that has thousands of different freeways available for you to travel on – or not, depending on what you choose…
Some of those freeways are traveling on the I Ching energy of Hexagram #6 CONFLICT. The text of The Book of Change warns about trying to force issues in business, political or personal relationships. You may be certain that your point of view is correct. However, rather than engaging in posturing and finger pointing, it’s best to get to the bottom of what is causing the CONFLICT and remove yourself from it:
‘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.‘ ~The I Ching Workbook, R.L Wing
A great number of other freeways are moving in the flow of Hexagram #26 DETERIORATION where things are falling apart at an alarming rate.
Another is #11, SHOCKING and there is a lot of CONTRADICTION #38. As you might guess, those who are traveling on these freeways are feeling unstable, confused and very ungrounded. If this is where you are at, The Book of Change still warns against forging ahead with your plans. You will simply be advancing into #47 ADVERSITY or possibly even disastrous DANGER, #29.
Luckily, there are also some freeways that are moving with the flow of MODERATION, Hexagram #15, where ‘The predominant forces … are in the process of balancing extremes and harmonizing interests.’ ~ The I Ching Workbook, R.L. Wing
The ancient Chinese text describes finding MODERATION as the best way to make progress is to disengage from extremes or opinionated attitudes and follow the guidance that comes from within. In almost any situation, if you are 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, especially when there’s too much chaos and confusion 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 or need to be released because they’re probably either:
- Feeling threatened, at risk or censured,
- Caught in the chaos of things splitting apart, or
- Seeking harmony and balance by letting go of extremes.
As you gaze at this Circle that accesses karmic seeds, see if you are currently experiencing one of these forms of karma. Ask yourself:
“Am I generally experiencing situation #1, 2, or 3?”
Maybe a mix of each depending on your mindset?
Whichever one it is, you can make your life easier by letting go of any karmic agreement that is complete – over and done with or that is causing you harm in any way.

Let Go So You Can Be Present
Use this Soul Contract Circle to help you identify and release the agreements. Simply gaze softly at the Circle while you use the affirmations. It can be helpful to imagine the agreements being pulled from the ground as you go through this process.
“I uproot any agreement to place myself in harms way.”
“I let go of activities or beliefs that are falling apart or finished entirely.”
“I release patterns of behavior that support conflict, ignorance, false pride, victimization, co-dependency, extremism, deception, elitism or ______.”
“I gently detach from timelines that are no longer pertinent to me.”
This is a good opportunity to clear your inner garden of any outdated intentions or plans that are interfering with your health or happiness. Include family, friends or business relationships. Update agreements with organizations you’ve been involved with – religious institutions, political agendas, completed projects, places you’ve lived, modes of transportation, communication issues, ways of doing business, etc.
By doing so, you free up a lot of energy and effort that’s tangled up with the way things used to be or the way you wish they were.
Because of the chaos involved, 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 helpful ideas:
“My new agreement is to stay in the present and follow my inner guidance calmly and honestly.”
“I make choices that align me with my Soul’s path and purpose.”
“I let go of _________. I prepare for __________. I take care of __________.”
“I make a choice to focus my energy on people, intentions and activities that are genuinely beneficial in the present.”
Be sure to include some fun and restful relaxation!
“I nurture my body, mind and spirit healthfully, in alignment with my true nature.”
“I am motivated by Divine Love which uplifts me and my purpose.”
“I decide to close the door on harmful distractions and pathways to suffering.”
You probably feel a bit calmer now.
If you’re willing, there are several other decisions you could make that would really improve your situation. Let’s continue with a couple of extremes that might be making it hard for you to find and stay on the road to MODERATION:
Extreme #1: The 24/7 syndrome.
Here is the prime example, ‘Being busy = being important.’ You might want to let go of that, because this is a terrible time to overload yourself.
“I disconnect from putting too much pressure on myself.”
“I close the doors to severe judgement, panic, chaos or _______.”
“I open the doors to serenity and well-being.”
“I am open to forgiveness and compassion.”
Extreme #2: The ‘if some is good, more is better’ extreme.
For example: The Sun is good, however too much Sun causes cancer. Butter is good, yet too much butter causes weight gain, etc. Another social meme that explains the mindset is: ‘There are no limits. I want it all now, so I have to have it now!’
“I melt away impatience, perfectionism and unrealistic demands. I let go of rigid or extreme behavior.”
“Healthy boundaries and alignment with my true Self benefits me now.”
“I am stable and calm. I follow my inner guidance.”
Extreme #3: The ‘too many choices, not enough time’ extreme.
Heading off into fifteen different directions will blow you out of finding MODERATION. That’s because panic, overwhelm and poor planning usually leads to poor results at best, and chaos at worst. If you want to succeed, stop and slow things down. Make a choice about what’s most important for you right now.
Make a promise to yourself that you will keep your boundaries and refrain from meddling, “fixing” or becoming too involved with others.
Remember, what you put out comes back to you one hundred fold!
“I decide to feel my own feelings and take responsibility for them.”
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 patterns that still affect you in a negative way. See them disappear as you send them to the Sun:
“I dissolve the destructive energy of this mindset and any connection I have ever had to it.”
“I dissolve ___________________.”
Once the patterns are cleared, close the door to pathways that lead to trouble.
“All harmful pathways are sealed and healed.
I am finding MODERATION in accordance with my highest good.”
For some people, finding MODERATION 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.
Now that you’ve made choices about finding moderation you can bring order and new happiness into your environment!”
