hi,

this is my first post so please forgive any awkwardness or lack of knowledge on how to do things right here....

i am going through a quiet but unsettling time in my life right now and trying to find meaning and direction. i have always believed in the significance of names and synchronicities. lately i have been looking at my own name, which is properly 'ly ly' and means 'glass glass' in modern vietnamese but ly also means fire in han vietnamese (or vietnamese version of chinese). this year is my thirtieth year.

i asked the i ching today the following two questions and got these answers:

1. what do i need to do in this time?: 18.6 to 46.
2. where am i at now?: 30.5 to 13.

i would like to hear your opinions on what these readings signify. to be honest, i cried when i got the second reading. they terrify me because i feel like i am about to step off the edge and the i ching is telling me to jump!

thank you.

lily

1. what do i need to do in this time?: 18.6 to 46. It suggests that you not be so involved in worldly, materialistic things, you need to seek a higher truth about what your life is really about, like a person becoming a nun in order to find a higher spiritual truth, obviously the material world has left you wanting for something deeper, some real meaning as to why you are here.
Hex 46 is about growing and should be done by adapting to the circumstances that you find your self in in order to achieve success and it also suggests the need for a guide.

2. where am i at now?: 30.5 to 13. Nothing to worry about here, it is just a period of transition in your life where changes must be made and certain things will have to be left in the past, it is a time to sort your priorities out, a time to see your path ahead clearly, you may feel sad at first but later on you will fill very happy that you made the necessary changes in your life.
hex 13 is about getting on with other people in your life, being a part of the lager community, being sociable.

thanks willowfox! your words really struck a cord -- for the past few years, it has been in my heart to be an earth nun and i have been pondering what this will mean for me, what will this look like? i've been feeling the need for a teacher/guide but i haven't yet found the courage/ability to ask for one...maybe it is time?

i would like to know your thoughts on the yin and yang patterns (hexagrams of change) of the readings:

for my first question, i have a yin pattern of hex 43 and a yang pattern of 23. i am not sure what to make of this...

for my second question, my yin pattern is 14 and my yang pattern is 8. i take this to mean: the scope for positive change is highly favourable but i must keep my head clear and my heart humble and open; the way is open to me and the choice is mine but inaction and indecisiveness will result in negative changes: i.e. take the time to do what feels right and best, but do not delay?

do i even need to look at the hexagrams of change?

thanks again for all your help!

I concentrate on what the hexs and lines have to say, I do not read yin and yang patterns. I think best for you to read what I have written and for you to think about that, going into unknown territory only leads to confusion.

Hi Lily,

18.6 > 46
18 Something has gone bad, but it is possible to fix it.
18.6 If you focus on spiritual values, you will have a richer life than if you pursue money or popularity.
46 The future brings you opportunity for a fresh start. It will be beneficial to talk with significant people.

I believe the reason they would value your opinion is because of the spiritual focus from 18.6. You will have a significant insight to share.

30.5 > 13
30 With a bright heart and a realistic view of your contribution, you can succeed.
30.5 This is your time to shine. All things will eventually pass. Perhaps you'll have some tears for what is left behind, or for knowing that there are no guarantees that what you build will outlast you. That's OK, but overall it is time to be glad that this is your time to shine.
13 Because of the light of character and vision, a group of people come together and they can achieve great things.

I believe these are very positive readings!

What do they mean to you?
