RE: Confusion about old souls
SeaWeed and Cappygirl--:-)did you girls happen to notice that your birthdays though one year differnce are one day apart!?Seaweed you're Dec.31st and CappyGirl, you're Jan.1st!
It stuck for many years, all men, who were born DEC.27, DEC 31 and JAN.1 so I saw the two dates immediately.And the 2 dates that you both are are such big ones for so many people too!
Seaweed, btw, I'm an older Indigo.
There aren't so many my age--but there are others like you--don't worry.Not that there are tons like you of course ;-)--but there are more born in your time than mine..
You're not alone.
Find others who understand and maybe if possible, an older one who might be a guide or friend.And, again if possible, get a counselor or therapist who can help you be yourself --even if she isn't a psychic or an indigo or crystal, a good understanding therapist will help you to be and understand-yourself.
Then, if and when it is time for a real teacher to appear in your life, and or time for you to use your abilities more, you will feel comfortable within yourself --which is so important for people like us.
RE: Where or How to Learn I Ching???
Hi Sable..I love the I Ching myself.I know how you feeel, though that is he way the I Ching is.It is symbolic and abstract.It doesn't answer yes or no and it more than anythig gives us something to think about.I agree with the advice given to you--try Hunag's or Wilhelm's.But, since you're new and not feeling sure of yourself yet try also a smplified text as well.Although these types are not popular with expereinced users, the truth is, to a new I Ching user it can offer insight that might take you years otherwise.I strted reading it in 1969, and didn't even have thew Wilhelm translation until 1972.
Other books that were considered simplified back then--were, simply-- not .And not so good.LOL.
But later, after I'd already become more experienced with it, there were some simpler books that I nonethless enjoyed because the interpretation was refreshing, and while perhaps incomplete for all manner of reading, these newer books gave fresh insights.
Ok--without further ado, here are some--try Sam Reifer's I Ching, you can get it in paperback.It is actually quite good, and refers to many sociological trends, and facts, as well as hisory and literature to help make its points.
Also, there is one that came out about 12 yrs ago--The Everyday I Ching, by I think, Sarah Dennings.
If you see any by Thomas Cleary, they are good too, though not so simple either.
I have another suggestion however .I was pleasantly surprised that I even learned something from this person--and I have been at it since before this person was born, btw.
She has, studied and translated her own version, and has a website with a free sction and a paid-for section for not much money, too.Her name is Hilary Barrett and her website is called"I Ching with Clarity".
For a much larger sum, one can get a reading or get coaching from her, or, can take a class with her.Sh answers some questions in the discussions, occasionally.
In any event, even if you do nothing more than join the free forum, there are many many people of varying degrees of experience there and most importantly-- people will help you with your readings!
RE: 2009 Good Karma Community Challenge
I'm grateful I finally have somewhere to live and now I have a new bed.
I'm grateful I have some of the best understanding support a person could have --and that wasn't always true for me!
I'm grateful I have managed to call one person who was lonely, and that I emailed 3 that wrote to me.
When I dont feel well, I don't always answer and then I lose out--but I managed to at least do that.:-)
I'm grateful I'm here with relatives nearby--when we weren't always close by.
I'm grateful I have a Higher Power in my life--I don't pretend to know what that Power is but I know it's there.And knowing it/he/she is there means Hope.
I wish everyone could know that hope and feel that peace.
I'm grateful I still find answers when I'm confused or lost.I'm grateful I get asked what I am grateful for--because it's important to remember and I'm glad to tell it.:-)
