There have been a number of requests for assistance from the Southwest, especially the Sedona, AZ area, in creating either rain or “balance” as the entire Southwest, including where I live, Santa Fe, NM, is incurring the worst drought in a hundred years. There is fire raging so bad near Sedona that people are being driven out of their homes and businesses are filled with smoke and abandoned. Firefighters in huge numbers have been brought there to help.
I normally do not try to interfere in the workings of nature and think of it all as part of the overall balancing that needs to take place. But I do ask for guidance and if I can assist in any way. So I threw the I Ching on the situation and it came up #50, The Vessel/Transformation with no changing lines. (I use Steven Karcher’s “Total I Ching”) Interestingly enough, the trigrams that make up this hexagram are fire over wood! Exactly the physical situation.
The message is that this is a transformation and the area is like a cauldron for it. “The way to deal with it is to contain and transform your problem through an image.” And: “Once the old has been eliminated there is nothing that can take the place of the Vessel and its transformative power.”
We are witnessing a purging and I think that the more people of awareness there are holding this process in their heart-minds the easier it will be. I’m not saying that we should make it rain.
Do what you will with this.

Santa Fe NM is my mother land. Very beautiful. Half of my family still lives out there. I still remember the smell of sage and the smell right before it rained. There is a beautiful sun set almost every day. There is a real sence of primal freedom. I miss the native american energy that was there.June 24, 2006 at 1:55 am #14983
Yes. All those things. There is a magical clarity in the starkness of this place. This evening the sunset was a very hot rosy-orange diffused over the Jemez mountains. And when it rains, you really appreciate it. -A
