Hi everybody,
I knew issue for a change !!

The background : my family has a small company. In the past due to some not very successful actions we took we had some financial problems. Now we have a quite big amount of money in loans that we have to pay. This situation ,all that stress has cause many problems including health problems. The goal I want to achieve is to increase the portions of the loan payments in order to finish earlier by increasing the profit, but I can help myself thinking a solution. This is not an issue of getting richer but gaining some “space” to live.

What should I know for the current situation ?
I got : 4.3 > 18


How can I reach this goal ?
I got : 22.3.6 > 24

What should be the fist step towards this goal ?
I got : 57 no changing lines

can you give me some hind what is all about ? I am trying to come to a jugment but is still difficult for me.

Any ideas ?

"What should I know for the current situation ?

First off, don't rush into this, take your time to assess the problem, and then tackle it one step at a time. Hex 18 is about your situation which is in a state of decay because your parents have allowed the debt to get out of control but it is not too late to turn the situation around but it appears that you and your family will really have to work hard for a while. If you all pull together then success will be the result.


"How can I reach this goal ?

Do not give up but keep working toward your goal of being debt free, so be prepared to live sparsely for a while, as you will not have the cash to spare. Hex 24 says that after a while the situation will become better and business will turn around, again be patient because things will start to move in your favour, success is coming.

'What should be the fist step towards this goal ?

Know exactly what you want, but in the beginning there will be little you can do, so help and support your parents by giving them encouragement and confidence, tell that that if you all work together and spend your money wisely, forgoing all luxuries, then the goal can and will be achieved. So never give up because as you proceed new opportunities will come for the advancement of the business.

What should be the first step towards this goal?

57. The Gentle

The Gentle is made up of two wind trigrams. Wind blows in all directions, so for this energy to create success it is important that precautions are taken so the energy available does not just scatter and become wasted. Thus Wilhelm says about this hexagram, "One must have a clearly defined goal." Further, all the self help books emphasize the importance of having WRITTEN goals, so I would ad that in your creating a clearly defined goal you also be sure to write it down.

Wilhelm also says, "Small strength can achieve its purpose only by subordinating itself to an eminent man who is capable of creating order." This suggests to me the importance of having either one person who is in charge and everyone strictly follows their direction, or a clear business plan and everyone strictly does their assignment.

Further, the Image for 57 is one wind following another. Words can ride the wind, so IC reccomends taking advantage of this time as an opportunity to spread ones ideas, advertise.
"The superior man spreads his commands abroad and carries out his undertakings."
That sounds like starting up an ad campaign to let people know about your families business. As the hexagram is about "Gentle Penetration," the campaign may need to involve a slogan that would be heard again and again in future campaigns so it gently sinks in.

You might also want to try some feng shui techniques. Flowing water by the entrances of the business and washing down the outside of the frount door are standard feng shui miracle workers.

Best wishes for you speedy recovery!

Hi rosada,
Your post give me some great ideas of what I should do. As a matter of fact a campaign is something I had in my mind and a keep postphone it for a long time. I see now a connection and maybe I start thinking again and organize it.

I take a look at memorizing 4 in order to clarify what 4.3 means. I;m working on that.

As for the feng shui techniques can you recomend me a site for more information ?

Thank you very much for your involvemed and your ideas

In answer to your first question, you got Hexagram 4, Youthful Folly, which seems to confirm your understanding of your current problem. However, the Miscellaneous Notes says that Youthful Folly means confusion and subsequent enlightenment. This means that you and your parents will definitely be able to figure out how to best deal with the problem. This hexagram also uses the example of someone asking a question several times. To importune is folly, it says. For your situation this means, I think, that deciding on the best possible solution will not be easy. You and your parents will probably discuss many possible solutions before coming up with the best possible strategy. In The Image, it says that the key is to be thorough.

Moving line 3 cautions you to not to simply go with the first possible solution that comes to mind. It also could also be telling you that the first solution you try to put into effect does not work out, or that it turns out to be untenable.

Your concluding Hexagram is 18, Work on What Has Been Spoiled. It says in the Miscellaneous Notes, "Work on what has been spoiled. Afterward there is order." This is reassuring you that even though you might have difficulty at first grappling with the best workable solution to your problems, if you persevere, it is guaranteed that you will be able to successfully resolve this issue.

When you asked how to reach your goal, you got Hexagram 22, Grace. Basically, this hexagram says that you will be able to come to the best solution by carefully thinking over the strategies available to you. In the part of the text that comments on The Image, it indicates that the best workable solution is one that is somehow extraordinary, different, unusual.

Moving line 3 tells you that by continuing to persevere in this matter, success is assured.

Moving line 6 indicates that you do indeed work your will, that you solve your problems.

Hexagram 24, the conlcuding hexagram, is Return (The Turning Point). The Miscellaneous Notes says that return means coming back. This means that your family business will definitely evolve back into its previous sound condition.

When you asked what your first step should be, you got Hexagram 57, The Gentle (The Penetrating, Wind). In the Appended Judgments, it says to take special circumstances into account. By doing this, you will be able to influence the outside world and gain control over it.

In The Judgment, King Wen says, "Success though what is small. It furthers one to have somewhere to go. It furthers one to see the great man." I think that Rosada has given you some solid information and guidance on this point. I would expand on that slightly by not only encouraging you to write down what you want to achieve, but to do that writing exercise every morning until your family business problem is completely resolved. When doing that morning writing exercise, I would encourage you to focus only on what you want your final goals to be, and let the Universe take care of the details. In your morning writing exercise, in other words, do not focus on or even make passing reference to the problem itself. Rather, focus the entirety of your energy on your final goals, how you want things to be when all these problems are behind you. Focus only on what you want, and avoid focusing at all on what you do not want. This will make a big difference in how things work out. I believe that in this way you will be able to spread your commands and carry out your undertakings. Perhaps this morning writing exercise is at least part of what is being alluded to in Hexagram 22 when it refers to unusual approaches.

I know of one website, WOFS.com (World of Feng Shui). If you google "feng shui" you will probably find some sites. The Western Guide to Feng Shui is a good intro book.
