      The  I  Ching

What is the I Ching ?

The I Ching is the ancient Chinese Wisdom and Prediction system based on the universal flow of energy known as TAO.  Set-out in book form 3000 years ago,  it  is based on  64 HEXAGRAM (six line) symbols that change  all  the time,  to  show  the  balance  of  YANG  energy  [forceful, determined] and YIN energy [creative, receptive] in every situation.

The Hexagrams

At Over 3000 years ago the Chinese produced a system in which the energy flow of TAO, of chance and change, of fate and fortune, could be reflected, and predicted, at each moment, and in any situation.  At each moment the flow of TAO is represented by a hexagram symbol.

The 64 hexagram symbols, unlike other symbols, are constantly changing (into other hexagrams ), and show the influence of the moving energy in your life. Normally, you cannot see these invisable energies, but when you look at a hexagram you have a visible 'snapshot', in  symbolic form, of your present situation.  This will show you your inner intentions, your outer behaviour (in the attempt to get what you want), and the prospects of success.

Tao master.

The hexagrams will go a little further, and will advise you

on an easier,  more effective, course of action.  

  Each hexagram represents a different situation,

condition, or event,

(past, present, or future), in your life.

It looks complicated, but you will only pick one hexagram at a time, and this has been made very easy with the use of a set of Elements.

How to select your hexagram

You select a hexagram to answer any question you have about your life and intentions, or to see the true nature of your situation.  

The hexagram will actually change to show you the likely outcome

of your intentions, decisions, and actions.



[ You can use any three coins of the same denomination. ]

Coins for selecting a hexagram in the I Ching.

The most popular method to select a hexagram is to throw, or cast, three coins six times (once for each line of your hexagram). At each cast of the coins you work out the nature of the Line (a straight Line or a broken Line) in your hexagram, starting with the bottom Line. You make a note of this, and continue with your six throws, to build-up a six Line hexagram. This is, perhaps, a little repetitive, and you'll need pen and paper to draw the hexagram, as you build it up from the bottom line. You then look-up the chart (in the book) to locate your hexagram number.

Yarrow stalks used to select a hexagram in the I Ching.

The traditional yarrow stalk method of selecting a hexagram pre-dates the coin method.  49 yarrow stalks are separated into diminishing bundles to produce a hexagram from a numbered formula. This takes a lot more time, and even though this traditional method appears long-winded, it is considered to be the correct meditative approach.

Set of Elements for easy and instant selection and access to all the hexagrams in the I Ching.

The ELEMENTS, from a very ancient source, are a revolutionary 'new' method to select your hexagram. They produce a 'physical' hexagram which you can manipulate and use in a dynamic way with the TAO I CHING.  This is the easiest direct way to select your hexagram and requires no calculations, charts or 'psychic' ability. Think of your question, just put your hand in the bag and take out your hexagram. It is so easy to use, and full instructions are provided.  You can even know the number of every hexagram in less than 2 minutes !
