Strange! It seems these days that everywhere I look, the scenery is changing. Of course, its fall and the trees are changing and the environment has a new daily color. Outside my front window, the farmer across the way has taken to butchering nature (my words of judgment I realize) and changing the view out of the bay window to which I now realize I’ve become much too attached. Trees are falling and I’m breathing deeply and trying not to notice—but I do. Even my own view of myself in the mirror seems to be changing these days… but I say this in a positive sense. No matter. That’s what life is—it’s what it’s about: CHANGE. I wrote a bit about that in this week’s psychic newsletter if you’d like to have a look. But now, back to the regularly scheduled BLOG post… an imaginary drum roll happens in my head as I toss the coins for today’s I-CHING daily divination message.
We have Kua 42 here, the I-CHING message of INCREASE. What is the meaning? The universe will help and support those who make the efforts, take active steps and make application. And if the efforts one makes are those that help others (not just the self), then all the more support is given.
Today’s message is to persevere despite the times when we feel as though we may lose heart. Tough times always pass—nothing stays the same forever—so, continue to remain true to your highest ethics and integrity!
Wow, as I look at the flowers on the card, even though I am typing this at the farthest point away from the sound of the bulldozer and big digger equipment just across the street, I still hear the sounds of the machines and destruction. Maybe there will be beautiful flowers in the spring in the field across the street, just like in the picture. I have this vision of myself going out one moonlit night in the wee hours and tossing wildflower seed all about the field that was once, mere days ago, a lovely forest. Perhaps the landowner needs a crop there for financial reasons or perhaps he has agreed to sell the trees for a price. I will send love and blessings to mother earth there—that I will do just as soon as I heal from the destructive machinery sounds. So today’s message from the I-CHING that means INCREASE applies to what is going on across the street. The land owner, it seems, is looking for an increase to come from the destruction on the land. I know how it feels to seek increase and will feel compassion for him and for nature itself and hope that he does see what he wishes. I will take today’s meanings—the keywords for today’s I-CHING Kua 42 and wish all of that for the land owner who is changing my view out of my window. I wish these things for not only him but for everyone who reads these words and for myself. May we all enjoy the following:
• An increase that we can share with others
• Reaping of rewards for all of our efforts
• An overflow of abundance
• A “flowering” [image above] that comes from all of our efforts
• Fertile fields, fertile grounds
• Encouragement from the universe by way of support for our efforts
• May we experience a time of upswing
• Great progress
Additionally, may we all apply our personal will wisely for these benefits to occur! May we all have increases that are good and true that uplift ourselves and others as well. May all of our opportunities land on the mark and none fall short!
Today, can you give someone a few flowers from your field? Is there an act of caring that you can afford to offer another?
Be the best you can be and help another be their best too, and this is how the flowers grow…
Meanwhile, the sky opens and it is starting to rain which seems in alignment with my own feelings as I listen to Bulldozer Bob out there and that other kind of earth destroyer… the kind with the big teeth on the end of the long arm that bites deeply into earth mother!
I am going to get in my car and drive away from here until nightfall when the machines will no longer be working. I’m going to a trailhead and hike deep into the forest and talk with Nature Goddess and nature spirits.
And thus ends my attempts to offer the cosmic communiqué for the day. Just remember that today (and almost always) the universe will support attempts at increase if you make the sincere efforts and include the good of others in those attempts.
As for me? What is the loss of a few more friends (the trees) if will bring the landowner some increase? I am trying my best to feel this way… it’s hard.
