What is keeping me stuck (and how do I effect movement) in my current creative project?

Pretty darn accurate!  I'm working on a series of essays which revisit the (numerous) unexplainable incidents that have populated my life.  I'm talking supernatural stuff - stuff that is not mainstream and stuff that many of people in my life will be surprised to know.  This is the book that I've always known that I would write as these incidents have tantalized me for as long as I can remember.  I'm hoping that by addressing them directly in this way as well as tying them to memoir of a more mundane variety, I can let go of the obsession.  

Naturally, my fear of "outing" myself has caused me be stuck on many levels in seeing this project through although I remain dedicated to it. 

Here is what the I Ching noted and advised:  

Cast Hexagram 40

"...release of others from your rigid expectations..."

"...rise to new heights as you cast the heavy sandbags of restriction and resentments away from you."

"...forgiving others..."

"...free yourself of the endless vigil of policing the behavior of others."

"He escapes the trap set by inferior men, then treats the conspirators as comrades.  By making them friends, he rids himself of enemies."

I thought this was awesome and I realize that I already knew (and have always known) that is fear of exposure that is keeping me stuck.  It feels energizing to have that confirmed.  I plan to further consult this oracle in order to get clear on how to proceed.

Thank you, the class was very interesting and informative!  I'll bet you are a wise and compassionate psychotherapist!
