01 – determination

“I, I, all I!” – How does it feel when I suddenly find myself at the very center, all by myself, undisturbed by the votes of others? Is it really quiet? Or do I still hear their voices in my head, defending myself in fiery speeches before absent parties? An interesting observation: I justify myself… why? Because I’m not the way I believe that they want me to be? But, here the consolation: awareness is already part of the healing. Continue reading “01 – determination”

13 – fellowship with men

Our mental clarity, our ability to differentiate between important and unimportant, is the pivotal point of this hexagram. Our clarity allows us to analyse a situation and the various aspects it comprises: What are my options in this situation? Which of these options should I choose to achieve best results? What or who will help me, give me strength, promote my growth? What aspects of this situation are blocking me or lead me to a dead end in the long term?

Scope of Questions

Several users have worked with Hexagram 44 – Coming to Meet and shared their questions:

  •  “I fell in love with a married man and now waver back and forth. My question: What is there to learn for me in this situation?”
  •  “Why does my sister currently treat me so nasty?”
  • “How should I deal with the frustration caused by my professional and private situation – a frustration I hardly can shake off?”
  • Another user on professional life: “What situation am I in concerning my self-employment?”
  • A mother whose children recently moved out: “I suffer from Empty Nest Syndrome and feel empty and without vision. What can I do to fill my life with new meaning?
  • Another user asks: “How can I better support myself?” He explains the background of his question as follows: “In the past I put myself under a lot of pressure, but now I realize that it was too much. Now, one part of myself is in resistance and almost doesn’t let me take another step (boycott). That is very frustrating. At the same time, now, whenever I devote myself to activities that really suit me, strength and desire come back. Even my face changes, I look years younger, within minutes.
