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

Recurring hexagrams

Recurring hexagrams

I’d been planning on writing a devastatingly insightful post about some rarefied, recondite connection you can find between readings with the Resonance Journal. Maybe the karmic significance of a repeated nuclear hexagram emerging as primary when you ask a Big Question – something deep and meaningful like that. Only when I actually started looking through… Continue Reading

Living Connection

Thinking about why we’re creating the journal software,  I found myself writing a sort of personal creed. Here it is – Living Connection Nothing definitive – of course – but heartfelt. If you like it, please share it freely. Continue Reading

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

Four ways Yi works with dreams

A wise person said to me recently, ‘There’s only one oracle.’ She meant that there’s only one reality speaking to us – so it shouldn’t surprise us when dreams, Yi, guides, synchronicities and all turn out to be working together. On reflection… this turns out to happen more often and in more ways than I’d… Continue Reading

Oracle bones and remembering

I have a lovely, fat book on my shelves called Sources of Chinese Tradition (volume 1), full of excerpted translations from the Chinese. Chapter 1, fittingly enough, is about oracle bone inscriptions: the earliest Chinese writing, divination records from the Shang dynasty, long before Yi came into being. The bone – a turtle shell or… Continue Reading
