I Ching Hexagram 18 — Corruption / Renovating (removal): of GU (Poison)

One of the traditional images of Corruption is the magic and evil dark arts sorcery, using a vase containing the five poisonous insects (snake, scorpion, centipede, gecko and toad) that were then put in a jar and left, until one had killed and eaten the others.

This became the GU, a spirit venom capable of not only crazing and killing a victim but also securing his possession and wealth for the perpetrator of the magic.

GU suggests hallucination, loss of reality, sexual debauch, the insects that appear in rotting or fermenting grain, miasma, sorcery, and most of all the curse of the Ancestors, the false dreams and delusions they send us all when they’re neglected or offended.

The meaning of GU

It’s about the acts of poisonous corruption done by parents/ ‘elders’ which then through their acts and immoral behaviours, manifested in certain of their children. The evil within those adult children is seriously affecting us all, and we need to take action.

So, now we’re openly confronting the source of evil in those particular parents or ‘elders’, that has established itself in the lives and souls of those children.

When we clear out their poison and corruption, this will allow healthy new growth into our world.

I know you’re aware there’s now great immorality in the world, there is decay, and there are hidden poisons.

Also my friend, be prepared

For the deflection of nasty and unexpected attacks. In this way you’ll make it through this day. And protect any beautiful new growth, as we surgically remove the old corruptions.

It’s soul surgery for a sick planet. Heart surgery for a broken world.

We’re finding the secret and hidden places of hurt and beginning the deep healing.

This is a great and moving time for spirit.

And a healing time for the seriously negative effects of the inner corruption of our parents on the children. Part of this healing will also be around our concepts of our own inner parent and experiences of toxic and severely dysfunctional family.

This is a critical time where we protect the budding new, as we clear out the planetary sickness living in the link between the personal and the political.
