Hello!

could someone help me shed light on hex 35 changing to 52. A couple of months ago I shared my story about my car being stolen, having to wait for things to get better to leave the Pacific NW…
I’ve tried to take Yi’s advice and wait while working on myself, spiritually and mentally and investing in art practices and my life plans in moving forward.

Recently, about a month ago I got fleas in my room. I thought I had them taken care of but they are back and I called in professionals this time to come and spray my room. My roommates say they have not had a problem and prefer not to have the whole house sprayed. Hence I got my room sprayed.

They sprayed yesterday and after they were done they told me it could take 21 days to see a difference! They never mentioned it might take 21 days!

I feel like I’m drowning at times. Before I called the spray guy I got hexagram 40 unchanging.

Any feedback on this reading is super helpful whether concerning fleas/general advice.

Thank You!

Sorry to hear about your situation. Did you ask anything in particular when you got 40 as a response, or was it more open-ended, or?

Best, d

I'm sorry this happened! I know flea bites can be painful and this must be really frustrating.

I'm curious what the specific questions were for the two castings? At first glance, it seems possible you might need to do something additional to get rid of them but I'd like to possibly know more specifics before trying to guess.

Hi @dfreed, my apologies I never got a message that anyone responded to my thread.

I believe I asked I Ching - please comment on what I can do to better my situation for the first casting and for the second if I should call an exterminator.


Recently, I did a reading to clarify my situation (since I thought no one responded) and got 32.3.5 changing to 47.

Thank you for your insights in advance.

Thank you @redoleander. Yes I ended up doing another spray in addition to the exterminator and I may do another one to wipe out their life cycle. As well as continue to vacuum and clean.

That outbreak definitely got me down in a different kind of way and I’m trying to bring myself back up mentally and spiritually.

As I mentioned to @dfreed I never got a message that anyone responded to my thread. So I’m sorry I’m just replying now.

Recently (since I thought no one responded to the thread), I did a reading to clarify my situation ( as a whole) and residual mental spiritual place I’m in at the moment - and got 32.3.5 changing to 47.

Thanks for your help

At the top of the tread is a Watch 'button'. You can click on this and select how you want to be notified.

Besides this, what are your current situations? Did you get rid of your room fleas? Or have you started your travels to leave the PNW?

Yeah, I thought I had clicked it when I made the post but maybe I didn’t.

I’m still in the PNW but I’m starting to think I may need to leave sooner than later if things keep going downhill. Maybe Just find a job on the East coast nothing fancy and a sublet. for now the fleas are gone, but that’s what happened before and they came back like a month later. Although this time I had an exterminator come in plus I did the raid thing vacuuming on top of that so hopefully it’s workin.

Before the fleas came, I was trying settle in for the winter and accept all the things that have happened and prepare to finish up projects while I’m here in the pn. And just lay low and leave in spring. Either way it Seems to be coming across that I need get very serious about making an action plan about when I’m leaving and where I see my future headed. It’s difficult because I have so many interests. But I guess I gotta start somewhere and definitely need to take this serious.

TY

32.3.5 > 47

32.3 perhaps you feel shame about the challenges with the fleas, or situation in general? I don’t think this is a traditional interpretation of the line, but the word “shame” stands out to me; perhaps this “gift” of the fleas has hurt your self-esteem or maybe even caused you to act out in some way. Are you in any kind of cycle of upset then apology, upset then apology? Or receiving help but having conflicting feelings about it?

32.5 This line is a lot more steady. And the hidden line is 40.5 which is about freedom from bonds (or even bondage). Is there anyone you can go to for help or counsel? Even perhaps you live with them? I think overall this is about you having the strength of character to weather the storm, while also perhaps letting you know that you should also keep your eyes open for options that create freedom for you (whether that’s within or as an escape plan).

47 I think represents you feeling exhausted. And maybe trapped.

Overall I think that maybe 32 > 47 is speaking to stuckness but 40.5 let’s us know you’re not actually stuck. But it will take actively seeking a leader/helper or being your own leader to find your way out. You don’t want the stuckness to become permanent. It could even be a mental thing, like setting yourself free of your perspective on the situation.

In your first reading, 35 > 52 there’s a similar theme of Advancing Stopped. Being stalled. I think the method you chose will work but, yes, you’ll need to be very thorough and do it multiple times or perhaps keep up with it with some kind of preventative measure (although I’m not sure what that would be.)

Definitely get some support if you can! Sometimes we are simply in a place that’s not our ideal for a period of time and need to be caring and supportive to ourselves in the meantime. Look for moments, people, and approaches that create some freedom and spaciousness for yourself.

@redoleander thanks for the reply. I definitely feel like I’m in a cycle of physical set back(pacific nw, car stolen, family dynamics, fleas) and emotional setback, regret, anger and shame with my situation or even progress in life.

Yeah, seems like when I try to get some new perspective something not so great happens. I guess it’s based on the choices I’ve made. That’s where the regret and shame (and probably upset) comes in.

Yees, I do think I need some more help. I’ll think on what that help could be. i do tend to want to be able to do things myself or find the leader within which I’ve struggled with over my life. I vacillate between wanting and needing that so strongly (leader within) and knowing that I also grow from different people’s perspectives around me to learn from.

le sigh… 😌

It's interesting because you received two very similar readings. (So much so that I came back to this thinking I made a mistake! But you actually received both of these readings.)

Your first one, 35.3.4 > 52

35.3 speaks to you accomplishing the goal of getting rid of the fleas, with assistance
35.4 to perhaps feeling scattered and trying to attend to too many things at once, halfway. Also, be vigilant about the fleas since this line does speak of a pest-like animal.
52 perhaps feeling alone and also at a standstill

The hidden line of 56.4 helps me understand this a lot better. This means that even though you succeed with the fleas, your heart simply feels defeated.
"Legge: The fourth line, dynamic, shows the traveler in a resting place, having also the means of livelihood and the axe, but still saying: "I am not at ease in my mind.""

This is what Bradford Hatcher wrote about that line:

"56.4, 9 4th, Zhi Gua 52: Gen, Stillness (Fan Yao 52.4: stilling one’s being, not a mistake)
The wanderer stays in a shelter Having secured some wherewithal and an axe But lamenting “My heart is not at peace”
56.4x The wanderer (stays) in a shelter: (Having) not yet secured a place * Securing some valuables (and) an axe: (But with) a heart less than peaceful"

The wanderer locates a shelter, a little less than accommodating, but better by far than his own naked skin. Inside he’s found an axe and some clothing, with enough dust on top to lay claim, and he still has most of his money. And yet he doubts his good fortune. Some exotic adventure this has turned out to be! The oxcarts rumble and creak overhead. His long-sought vista across the great water is just an uneasy watch from a hole. His axe feels more like a weapon than a tool, and his money feels more like bail or bribe. Instead of cavorting with the belly dancers, he gets to throw rocks at the rats. The road can get old; so can not bathing. But if the whole world is going to be his home, sometimes he will stay in the outhouse. To make himself at home is his job, and he’s only halfway home. He lies down to dream of tomorrow."


You succeed in step one, now it might be about how to make yourself at home in what you know is a temporary place and not totally satisfying. Situations like this are an inevitable part of life so perhaps you can be creative in how you take care of your heart when it's not yet at peace.

I think mindset is important but sometimes life is really unfair and piles on; you can't be expected to not let that affect you. You've had a lot of setbacks. They are by no means permanent and in hindsight will appear different but this is where you are at the moment and it's confining. I think that in sort of rock bottom-feeling situation you deserve support. Maybe there's a free or low-cost support group? Sometimes orgs provide free therapy. Or maybe someone in your extended network who has been through the low times and back up again would want to help you. Sometimes solutions can even appear or become more visible through the magic of having support. You've been through a lot recently. Be as kind to yourself as you can.

Your second reading containing 35.5 suggests maturity and strength of character for you. You have that. The only caution being to not be too rigid either. Resulting hexes of 52 and 47 both have that energy of feeling like options are limited and needing to go it somewhat alone. Times like this can make us stronger, just also don't be more alone than you need to be or for longer than you need to be. Asking for help here was a good step too!

@redoleander Wow, this is very accurate. Thank you for this insight. Truly.
I definitely feel this way - just tired in my heart of the cycles of failure with few ups or resigned in a way I guess. I know it’s something internal but the external has been really hitting hard lately. I do have a therapist but I’m not sure if it’s really helping as much as I need it to at this time. They seem to be going thru the pains of life like me.
I will seek out some other support I think. I do feel like I have ppl around who care which I’m thankful for.
I’ve been researching how to find strength during hard times and this speaks to that.

I’ll continue to do maintenance on flea situation for now. And continue to find comfort or joy somewhere - food, learning, seeing what I want for the future. Still don’t want to get any hopes up in a way…

You mentioned that the Yi said doing things half way due to being scattered. That is very true and ifeel that it’s putting me in a lower place as well, and something I don’t want to continue doing. Do you feel there’s advice in the reading on that or maybe I should do a separate reading on that?

thank you again
