Hexagram 39 Relationship extenal trigrams

It is a dangerous ocean under the blue sky. This is a very tense and dangerous situation.
At the bottom of the ocean, the mountain grows. Confidence in the security and stability one’s position is gaining strength on the inner plane.
The mountain will soon appear on the surface and push the ocean beyond the horizon. Internal faith in one’s own powers begins to manifest itself in the world of events.
Where dangerous ocean waves raged, in a while there will be the huge mountain. What was dangerous, after a while will cause an unshakable sense of self-confidence.

Hexagram 39 Relationship internal trigrams

The flame blazes right above the ocean. It is the oil stain burns on the surface of the ocean. There is a huge cloud of steam here. This is a very violent emotion because of a vague premonition of impending danger.
The flame illuminates dangerous ocean depths. Everything hidden becomes obvious.
The fire will soon go out and there will be one dangerous and endless ocean. The passions and emotions will go away, something huge and dangerous, coming from the depths of the subconscious, will remain.


IN THE MANIFESTED REALITY.  The ocean symbolizes a very large dangerous, MAJOR OBSTACLE.  The cardinal changes will come soon here: the great danger will be replaced by a reliable and lasting position. The great danger from the manifested reality will spread to the subtle plane and stay there for a long time. Only when you realize the magnitude of the danger, you really get scared.
MAJOR OBSTACLE will soon be overcome in the world of events, but on the SUBCONSCIOUS PLANE, it will remain for a long time. The fear of the experience will fill a subtle plan.
The essence of the hexagram is a powerful obstacle to the spiritual development of man, based on his past traumatic experiences. This obstacle for subtle energy is in the form of granthi (node) in Vishuddha chakra.  MAJOR OBSTACLE is the main granthi on the path of the creative beginning. “The lump in the throat” is the most strong obstacle on the path of the divine energy of Kundalini with which the yogis directly connect the spiritual growth of a person. “Snake Kundalini” has already crawled up and approached to Vishudha chakra (to the throat). The potential for accomplishment is simply enormous. The energy of creativity is locked inside and can not be realized. This is an obstacle in you, not in circumstances. It is a lump in the throat, in the Vishudha chakra, which blocks the subtle creative energy.
All obstacles must be overcome and the creative divine potential must be realized no matter what. Inactivity will clog the subtle energy in your body. This will ultimately lead to an explosion of subtle energy. On the physical plane, this explosion can be manifested as any destructive actions, most often associated with mental or bodily illness. This is one of the most dangerous hexagrams because the situation is on the verge of flooding on the subtle plane. Только избавившись от внутренних страхов, и реализовав творческие замыслы можно полностью преодолеть MAJOR OBSTACLE.

A person who received this hexagram should strongly implement self-creative projects overcoming any internal fears. It is necessary first of all to him, and only then to other people.

Hexagram 39 opposite vibration FORTUNE

FORTUNE – the maximum degree of luck, when there are no obstacles to the implementation of ideas. FORTUNE testifies to the correspondence of your intentions to the flow of events. Everything is the most favorable way. Perhaps FORTUNE is the companion of a person who does not have internal blocks and wants the same thing that God wants. However, life is a chessboard with black and white cages. Nobody can always walk only through happy cells. Now it’s FORTUNE, tomorrow it’s a MAJOR OBSTACLE. That is life!
