About keeping a journal of Yijing readings (along with dreams, synchronicities, insights and so on)

Example reading after a dream

Since I wrote about ‘Four ways Yi works with dreams’, I’ve been on the alert for how this conversation’s working for me. Here’s an example from my journal. I’d been divining – and worrying – about how I was going to promote the journal software. I’ve never been very good at selling things, not so… Continue Reading

Line positions and the moment of divination

Talking about ‘line positions’ sounds painfully dry and academic. (Not least if it makes you think of the formulas about line correspondence and so on.) What to call them instead? ‘Hexagram layers’?

The way they start to fit together, unfolding a single story or interweaving many themes, always gives me goosebumps. Sometimes it’s unmissable. I… Continue Reading

Why you might want to review your I Ching readings

Why you might want to review your I Ching readings

It’s not just me: lots of people let me know that they get further with their readings, understand them better, see more clearly, when they look at them for a second time. Continue Reading
