    Default How I arrived here - hope this helps other confused newbies.

    Hi everyone:This is my very first post after a full year of reading, searching, puzzling and finally, understanding what everyone has been discussing on Hilary's wonderful site. It only took 50 years. Not joking. First exposed to IChing back in the hippie era.Since it didn't answer my schoolgirl questions I quickly tossed it aside. A few years ago I downloaded an app as an entertainment which also led me to OnlineClarity. Again, not understanding one iota of the answers to my questions the app remained unused for a very long time.Then my life started to unravel - slowly at first, then quicker and quicker. Through this many strange things started to happen. I won't go into those details here but basically I thought both myself and my house were haunted. I got the feeling that something was really really trying to get my attention. So I started to pay attention to what was happening. Once I did this the weird events and happenings slowed down. I started using my Iching app for the usual ridiculous and shallow questions and as usual, felt confused and actually angry. I started challenging it. Often. Then I started not even having a question but concentrated on how I was feeling internally to see what would come up. Bingo.Yi reflected my internal landscape. I got the same half dozen hexes over and over, often unchanging but always correct. I realized that for me I didn't need to know about my relationships, did that guy at work like me, my job, winning the lottery or having a nicer house. I needed to clean up my spirit. Change my path. Humbled I asked whether I was evil and got hex 15 changing to 5. And I've never looked back. This process has taken one year. I'm still getting the same hexes alot so now I just read my journal and work on those questions. When I'm ready to move on I expect the answers will too.For others who are new to this: Yi has never given me anything but advice on being a better person. I have been coached, prompted and gently steered onto a better path when I slip off into the ditch so to speak. It has never been harsh or angry with me. I may someday ask questions about material and wordly matters but for now the answers are all about my spirit growing, changing and also accepting the unchanging.To the people who post on here, thank you for being part of the difficult process of becoming a good human. Your questions and answers to each other have been valuable.

    How could such a genuine reflection of your growing relationship with Yi be anything other than a beacon of light for others? What a beautiful post.
