Do I have a bad energy around me
Your reading resulted in the following hexagrams:

changing to
12 33

Hexagram 12, Blocked


Key Questions
What work can you do when nothing is working?
Who are you when no-one is noticing?

Oracle
‘Blocking it, non-people.
Noble one’s constancy bears no fruit.
Great goes, small comes.’

Nothing moves or grows, communication doesn’t happen, everything is negated and blocked – and this is because of ‘non-people’. That may mean that some people are a consistently, exclusively and pathologically negative influence and sabotage all attempts at progress. It can also refer to perceiving someone as not quite a real person, explaining their behaviour with labels and stereotypes rather than seeking to understand. In both cases, there is a complete failure of empathy. This means that your very best and strongest efforts come to nothing. You can have a soaring imaginative concept of the creative possibilities here; you can have the will to be true to that concept and carry it through. You’re not doing anything wrong; the problem is that these creative possibilities are just not available when things are Blocked. Small concerns dominate. The adaptive response is not to strive constantly to rise to a higher level, but to focus your attention on the small details – the immediate, uninspiring reality.

Image
‘Heaven and earth do not interact: Blocked.
A noble one uses his strengths sparingly to avoid hardship.
He does not allow himself honours and payment.’

Sequence
Blocked follows from Hexagram 11, Flow:
‘Things cannot end with flowing together, and so Blocked follows.’

Changing Lines
Line 3
‘Embracing shame.’



Hexagram 33, Retreat


Key Questions
What must you do to stay safe and whole?
How can you change your relationships so they support your integrity?

Oracle
‘Retreat, creating success.
Constancy yields a small harvest.’

The old Chinese character for ‘retreat’ shows a pig and footsteps on the road; perhaps this pig is running away so as not to be eaten.

Retreat means withdrawing from what can harm you, or what might swallow you up: it is a way to keep yourself whole. So retreating creates success: it is not defeat, but the way to avoid defeat, like an army that falls back and stays intact. When you retreat, you hide yourself away – you might disappear into the landscape altogether – so that you will not lose yourself.

Retreat moves away from threats, and towards wholeness and integrity. It is a way to be constant to principle, and to yourself, by paying less attention to immediate results. The army that is loyal to a longer-term objective will retreat in good order rather than linger to gather spoils. The hermit, constant to the truth he perceives, withdraws from society into an inner space; he is not interested in claiming tangible rewards. Such constancy, offering no resistance and creating no friction, bears fruit in small, inconspicuous ways.

Image
‘Below heaven is the mountain: Retreat.
A noble one keeps small people at a distance,
Not with hatred, but through respect.’

Sequence
Retreat follows from Hexagram 32, Lasting:
‘They cannot last long in the place where they settle, and so retreat follows. Retreat means withdrawing.’

Pair
Retreat forms a pair with Hexagram 34, Great Vigour:
‘Great Vigour means stopping, Retreat means withdrawing.’

I think 36.1 means you are wounded, and having to really flop along as with a broken wing. 12 is more of this wounding and blocking. IMO, the advice given in the text above is the right one. Stick to small things, take care of yourself, and accept that you are in a blocked time (personally, culturally,- many these days are, due to events beyond our control) and do the bit by bit things until you enter a better phase.

I see much of what foxx does in your reading. I think the main thing though, is that there's stagnation around, and it persists with heaven (the future) becoming greater than earth (the past). What's of note here, is that this is a state outside of you, op, so in response to your question "Do I have a bad energy around me?" It's saying, "there's no bad energy coming about due to you, but there is stagnating energy around you, and it might cause you to fear, thus, retreat". It might be a time to make a change for the better, and leave any negative, overwhelming surroundings. Just my personal opinion.
