Daily Divination 7-11-11 Wait Patiently and Remain Unconcerned; I CHING Kua 5

Periods of waiting are a necessary part of life and  time is not wasted when you are waiting with the confident knowledge that sooner or later the drought will end. Oh, Yes! We’ve all lived this so many times!

If  you are a woman and have been pregnant, you know this waiting period; and if you have gone past your due date, you know it even better! Today’s message addresses a type of  required postponement or delay that is… well, take the example of fruit that falls from the tree when it is exactly ripe.

When I think of the ripeness of fruit, it always has me thinking of karma being ripe and the divine timing of things. I’ve been blogging about my car situation recently– I can use this as an example.

My daughter felt like I was being, to use her words, “taken advantage of” by the local auto place here. (That was her trip, not mine.) Meanwhile, I was in a limbo situation waiting to see if the car (Saturn) that I just bought was going to be able to be fixed. Waiting! Kua 5! There was a short in the ground wire or something which was preventing the car from starting.

My youngest Aries daughter was quite upset and began to tell her friends about this. Meanwhile I was waiting and had no idea of my daughter’s conversations with other people while I was waiting. This epitomizes Kua 5’s meaning—things are happening even when it looks like nothing is!

The kind of progress that is taking place is invisible and everything is being guided by a power greater than yours.That is the basic bottom line of today’s message. To conclude the example just given, if the Saturn car had not malfunctioned the day after I paid for it, I would have gone through with putting the title/registration in my name and would have had more of a problem getting a refund.

Kua 5 – Waiting, Nourishment

Because it did malfunction and because my daughter told her friends about the situation, one of her friends had a car (Pontiac Sunfire) that they were planning to sell in about 6 months, but because of my “story”, she decided to sell it sooner– to me!

But, meanwhile, I was waiting without knowing any of these details regarding the conversation with my daughter and her friend.

When I asked Higher Mind what was going on, what I received was that the delay will work out in your favor and to be patient.

I knew I would somehow have some car or other, but there was a delay. The great gift of waiting had been given to me and the requirement from me was my willingness to step back from the desire to push forward.

I was feeling vulnerable and in the process of “itching to go forward”, I developed a good case of poison ivy as I pulled weeds to vent frustration.

It was continual work to bring myself back to the present moment over and over again. The blessing was that my grandchildren were here to help me do that!

Today’s message is to “wait in trust” in spite of the fact that there are no clear indication as to the timing of events.

There is a deep process occurring within your being that must be completed before external events can shift.

Even though it may seem that life is working against you in some way today, it isn’t.

Just know that everything that is delayed has a good reason for being that way.

I know that it is hard to say “yes” or to accept life circumstances or events that seem to be going backwards or in the wrong direction—a good mantras for these times that we all experience periodically would go something like,

“It ‘is as it is’ and I detach and surrender to the wisdom of the universe in this matter.”

Put your focus on strengthening your sense of well-being—cool down and redirect the energy of impatience to more creative pursuits.

Wait patiently with optimism today! Something new is about to be born!

Cosmic Communiqué 6-21-11 Opportunity for Progress Today to Teach and Lead Others; Kua 19 – Ace of Pentacles, Knight of Pentacles

Today, make hay while the Sun shines—make the best use of your time when that opportunity is available while setting aside the mistakes of others or even what you perceive as their intentional transgressions.

Joyful and hopeful progress occurs today if effort is applied and opportunities are recognized.

Let nothing hold you back for today a good day for action.

Even if something is perceived to be that which is temporarily holding you back, exert patience and recognize that it is for your benefit and persevere where you are able.

Today is a good day to do teaching if this is in the spectrum of possibility and opportunity, especially if this is done through good personal example and in the spirit of lovingkindness.

The Ace and Knight of Pentacles archetype relates to this message from the I CHING Kua 19 which inspires today’s divination. The Ace of Pentacles message is to proceed without worry (read more on the Ace of Pentacles here) and the Knight of Pentacles (Air of Earth) relates to teaching through actions, accomplishments and words.

The archetype of the Knight of Pentacles is one that represents… well, we could say that he knows “When to hold ‘em and when to fold ‘em” and has the patience to study the situation and know what action to take when.

However, being overly critical of others in part of that nature of energy and so here there is the admonition that goes something like, “Physician, heal thyself”.

In other words, the more the Knight of Pentacle part-of-us has healed our own wounds and balanced the consciousness of the self, the better prepared we are to help, lead or teach others.

So while one shouldn’t hold back today, one must use care not to project one’s own inner issues onto other people in the actions that are taken.

Speaking in realistic and grounded ways is part of today’s guidance.

Again, both the I CHING Kua 19 and the Ace and Knight of Pentacles suggest working as a teacher and leader today by demonstrating the example of one’s own life—teaching by example.

There will be an opportunity to do so in a very grounded way (Air of Earth, Pentacles) if one remains alert to those possibilities.

Approach has supreme success.

Perseverance furthers.

New life is awakening and signs of transformation are visible everywhere.

Opportunities presented now are for the purposes of growth.
