Hexagram 18 character

Image I Ching hexagram 18, Mountain over Wind & Wood

There are times when I feel poisoned
with a stagnating parasite eating me in the gut.
I must go back in my personal history
to learn what may be the cause of my discomfort.
This is not an easy task.
It takes more than one cycle of time to understand
deeply rooted experiences not always in conscious memory.
I realize that this corruption is not something I caused
but was handed down to me through through my parents.
I can’t change my genetic code
or how my mother or father treated me.
Once I understand the cause for what
feels like a decaying can of worms,
I can move forward into a new growth cycle.

i Ching hexagrram 18 line 1

Six in the First Place

I examine my relationship with my father and learn
that the problems I inherited were handed down
through his relationship with his father.
It is important to heal these wounds for myself and
end the cycle of corruption for the benefit of future generations.

Nine in the Second Place

We have problems that may have been caused by our mother.
We know what ever these inherited issues are that she loved us.
We are careful and considerate of her before placing blame.

Nine in the Third Place

Turn away from the path of the father and begin again.

Six in the Fourth Place

With good intentions we try to understand the problems caused by our father.
We ask his spirit for help with the issues we inherited.

I Ching Hexagram 18 line 5

Six the the Fifth Place

We search for a remedy to heal the wounds we inherited.

Nine the the Last Place

There comes a time to let go of issues that may have spoiled the past.
Strive to achieve a goal that goes beyond the limitations that you were born with.
