Progress and Clarity Today! When the Spotlight Shines on Us, What Will Others See? Examine your pose—yoga. I-CHING Kua 35 Daily Divination 9-30-11

The contemplation question for today is: what is the mental and physical posture that I am holding? Today the prediction is to expect an increase in clarity! It’s Kua 35, Progress!

I’ve had a bit of a challenge lately with the huge disturbance in the force-field around where I currently reside. And a few other minor “issues with my issues” lately and today’s I-CHING toss results in a confirmation or validation of what I’m internally feeling—that progress has been made. What about you? What’s the guidance and prediction for you at the exact hour and day that you read this post?

As I look at the image for this Kua, it appears as if the individual is holding a pose, applying focus and feeling satisfied about it based on the expression on the face.   And so it’s about inner stuff here too; see the eyes are closed?

PREDICTION:  Where life has been complicated or intense lately, if there has been an effort to hold a particular pose or focus—perhaps to apply a certain set of principles—progress has been made and advancement has occurred.  Or it will today if it hasn’t yet!

As with any Hatha Yoga posture, the strength-building occurs at the core, based on the extent of the hold. (My apologies to any Hatha Yoga instructors out there for that awkward sentence.)

This image for Kua 35 reminds me about doing yoga today—the universe is giving a gentle nudge. I’ve been hiking/walking increased distances and not doing yoga; and today I need some stretching of the muscles and to practice my asanas (poses). I love the tree pose (Vrksasana)! If you’ve follow this blog lately, you know exactly why too. 🙂

So there in the paragraph above you can find another potential message for yourself—ever think of taking up  Hatha Yoga?

The common predictive meaning of this divination tool has to do with things “coming to light” –the ability to see what was not there before such as when the light is turned on inside a darkened room or better yet like when daybreak comes.

That makes me think of the times we used to take the pop-up camper and pull into a campground late at night. My daughters were children then and as soon as my husband got home from work on a Friday, I’d have the camper loaded and we’d be ready to go. Yet, we’d arrive at our destination after nightfall and not know how the place looked until daybreak when we could look out and see what was around us. Such fun!

So this Kua predicts such a thing for today—being able to see what was previously not able to be viewed. And this can be literal (physical) or metaphysical, such as a new awareness “dawning”.

And if turns out that the spotlight is upon you today—if it is YOU who is dawning upon others or if you suddenly find that spotlight on you, there is no concern if you’ve been true to yourself and in integrity all along.

Another angle on the message of this Kua has to do with continuing application and effort just as before even once recognition has been received. Once we get the applause for any efforts, it is tempting to either slack off or to continue seeking the applause by continuing to try to impress others with our achievements. That, we can see, is an easy trap of the ego and a huge distraction that takes us off the path. So with this Kua today, we are given this subtle teaching and more to contemplate to see if it applies to our life in any way.

 So stay alert and don’t take a nap under a shade tree when you should be remaining aware of when it is time for your next move when the dawn happens.

Other divination keywords for today are advancement, gaining recognition, appreciation, achievements, acceleration, steady gains and of course, increased clarity and progress.

So like the tree stay grounded! In divine timing, I came upon a t-shirt that my sister gifted to me many years ago. In fact, so long ago that I forgot that I had it! She must have recognized my love for trees from so many years ago by selecting this t-shirt as a gift for me. And written upon the shirt under a beautiful image of the tree are these words…
