‘DIY’ tips for I Ching divination

New in the Resonance Journal: reading insights

New in the Resonance Journal: reading insights

The Yijing doesn’t just talk to you one reading at a time: it communicates a lot through the patterns and themes that recur through many readings.

The Resonance Journal has always been brilliant for finding these patterns in your readings: they’re a click or two away, via the Cast History feature (the easy option, my favourite) and the Advanced Search (especially useful when you’re looking for patterns that range across dreams and synchronicities as well as readings).

The Insights Pane is different, because it ‘volunteers’ information about which hexagrams you’re getting most frequently: you can see at a glance when something unusual’s happening, with no searching required.

Once you’ve updated your Journal to the latest version, you’ll see the Insights Pane when you next open it. Here’s a tiny, 2 minute video introduction:

How do you cast your readings?

How do you cast your readings?

Does computerised casting work? From time to time, someone will ask me whether it’s acceptable to cast the I Ching – that venerable, 3,000-year-old oracle – by tapping a button on a screen. And quite a bit more often, I’ll hear from someone how they received an answer that spoke to them with complete clarity… Continue Reading

Haven’t I seen this reading before?

I’m going to be sharing a few mini-videos of some of my favourite Resonance Journal features. Here’s one about the ‘Cast History’ search. The point of this is that Yi doesn’t just communicate one reading at a time; the connections between readings can be quite eloquent, too. And sometimes it just makes its point by… Continue Reading

An oracle for all kinds of mind

An oracle for all kinds of mind

All kinds of mind, all kinds of entrance The Yijing can speak to all kinds of people – I think this may be one way in which it’s unique. Tarot, for instance, is undoubtedly a multi-faceted system, but to use it fluently you’d better be moved by its images and able to imagine yourself inside… Continue Reading

The joy of ROQs and making sense

The joy of ROQs and making sense

ROQs, as you may know if you came to June’s ‘Connecting with Imagery’ workshop, are Really Obvious Questions. They’re the simplest, most child-like questions you can think of: what’s this? what do you do with one? what’s it like? These are the key to getting unstuck at pretty much any stage of a reading. Making sense… Continue Reading

How I imagine primary and relating

Following up on my last, long post with the example reading, I thought it might help to share this tiny excerpt from Yijing Foundations, where I explain how to imagine the structure of a reading without falling into the trap of pigeon-holing the second hexagram as ‘future’: Sign up for the Yijing Foundations Class waiting… Continue Reading

Still not enough time for the I Ching

Still not enough time for the I Ching

Some 11 years ago (!) I wrote about people telling me they didn’t have enough time for the I Ching, and the gifts of time it offers. Well… we haven’t got noticeably less busy since 2008, and I still hear this quite often. What distresses me most are the people who explain they’re as interested… Continue Reading
