The ancient Chinese divination system, the I-ching, which roughly translated means “book of changes,” is made up of 64 hexagrams that navigate the twists and turns of life in a very elegant narrative that I find quite beautiful. This week’s Intuitive Chalice combination reminds me of Hexagram 18, also known as “Repairing what is spoiled” or simply “decay.”
We live in such a throwaway society in th 21st century that nothing really appears to be sacred enough to save anymore, whether that be things, ideas, relationships… easy come, easy go. But this week is highlighting the need to make amends, literally.
Principle 3: I AM Human recognises the frailties of humanity and offers us redemption through forgiveness and atonement, as we are asked also to recognise the frailties in our global brothers and sisters, forgiving them for their trespasses as it were. Mending bridges and healing differences, first within our own shadow and then in all external connections, is key in freeing ourselves from lower vibrational and potentially toxic emotions like blame, shame and guilt.
The blood red base or root chakra governs manifest reality or tangible forms and structures including the physical body and the planet we live on.
Something very real needs healing this week and in order to heal it, there must be some form of recognition of the broken nature in which it presents itself, and not only that, but to truly atone for it’s current state you must acknowledge your own part in it’s decay.
Mending what’s meaningful shows great respect for the time it takes to build certain structures in our lives such as homes, businesses, families, friendships and relationships whilst also paying attention to the fragility of all that exists in manifest form and how quickly it can fall into ruins through neglect or inattention.
You have the power to fix what is broken so that it may continue to serve and support you along your onward journey.
Now is the time to care for what cares for you.
More later… x
