Predicting The Future with The I-ching

The Chinese believed that anyone could understand the I-Ching would be able to answer all questions, solve all the problems and cure all diseases.

The I-Ching was written between 1000 and 500 a. C., although it was used thousands of years earlier. Nothing is known about the author of the book, but in subsequent years was supplemented with comments from scholars such as Confucius.

Today, many Westerners have discovered that the "mutations" are not only useful for divination, but also for philosophical contemplation. The eminent psychologist Jung put the I-Ching as an example of what he called synchronicity, ie, important or meaningful coincidence, and recommended the study to lovers of self-knowledge and wisdom, in its quest for universal truth.

At the heart of I-Ching is the principle of polarity by polarity in the West understand the existence of two opposites. However, the Chinese understood as two opposite but complementary energies. One can not exist without the other or, more exactly, one is inherent to the other. This is depicted in the ancient Tai Chi symbol.

The ancient Chinese did not consider the existence of additional light without darkness, or day without night. Thought impossible to understand the concept of light without having experienced the dark.

The energies that exist in the universe are generated by these polar energies. From observation of these relationships the idea of ​​change. In the same way as the Greek philosopher Heraclitus said, "Everything flows", the Chinese discovered that the universe and everything in it is in constant motion. This observation is especially important in light of modern discoveries in physics on particles. The sun reaches its highest point at noon, to continue its course towards the horizon, it reaches at sunset. In the night sky, the moon grows, reaches its fullness and then decreases. Looking at the sea, we see that when the tide reaches its lowest point, imperceptibly changes direction and begins to rise. This follows a regular cycle. Therefore, it concluded that there are guidelines in existence that can be discovered by those who investigate.

The Trigrams

For the Chinese, was probably a natural way to visualize the change cycle as follows:-MOVEMENT SLEEP-REST or REST-MOVEMENT-MOVEMENT

Lass figures of three lines are called trigrams. There are eight possible combinations of these, whole or broken lines, forming a series of relationships and representing, for example, family, seasons or types of energy.


Ch'ien (The Creative) K'un (The Receptive)

Ken (The quiet) Sun (The Soft)

Chen (Lo suscitante) Kan (The abysmal)

Li (the stick) Tui (The serene)

The Hexagram

A trigram can be placed on top of another to symbolize heaven on earth. This is therefore a figure of six lines called hexagram. The example of used computers before we will see a row of 6 switches that can be turned on or off. There are 64 possible combinations, which is the number of hexagrams that make up the I-Ching. Are believed to represent the total number of situations that occur naturally in the ever-changing pattern of life. Some argue that this pattern was first seen in the shell of a turtle.

Whatever its origin, only a small step between the perception of the pattern and the desire to implement, in an attempt to understand the human condition. Imagine a person standing on the earth (Yin) looking up to heaven (Yang) and wondering, "How do I fit in the order of things?" If you use an appropriate method of selection, a hexagram can help you find the response.

Use of currencies

There are many methods in use for years guaranteed to obtain a hexagram that allows the intuitive person answer a question or find the solution to a problem. Traditional methods of counting yarrow stalks, rice grains or pebbles, say they will achieve the right state of mind, as they all need practice time to master. In the West the most popular method is one in which we use three currencies, throwing six times and the resulting combinations result in a hexagram.

First, sit comfortably and quietly for a few minutes to come up with appropriate wording of the question. Write it on paper and leave it in front of you. If the question is too vague, give yourself a little more time and let your mind wander until you think of appropriate words, then write them again. Avoid asking for options, since the response you receive will be ambivalent. If you ask the question correctly, the answer will be precise and definite.

If your ideas are vague on the question type you want just a tip on a specific issue, you can write, for example, "employment" or "house." The resulting hexagram may not have an obvious meaning, but reflects on him will be surprised at your convenience. Sample question: "Should I accept this job?"

Now take the coins in your hands and shake until you feel the time is right, then let them fall and enter the sum. Remember that the first line is always the bottom of the hexagram. Trace the hexagram from the bottom up.

We have the complete hexagram, for identification purposes, we divide it into its corresponding trigrams, the upper and lower.

Superior trigram

Chen and Thunder

Lower Trigram

Ch'ien or Heaven

This combination corresponds to the hexagram number 34, which is "The Power of Great, which suggests that it is okay to accept the project but the sheer force of will is not enough. We must persevere in the task and carry it out with the right attitude. To make the project successful will be used for skills. In other words, if you use the best talent you have and will have to persist long enough in the project, then it will be favorable to go ahead and accept it.

If the resulting hexagram had been number 33, "The Collection", it would be best to postpone the project to better understand every detail.

This is all you need to know to consult the I-Ching. If you play for a while have the feeling that the ancient oracle has life and personality, will help to clarify their ideas with precision and often with a touch of humor, as you would a dear and wise friend.

Throwing Coins

Take three coins of the I-Ching or three coins equal. Give the value 3 faces and crosses the value 2. Thus the amounts will be 6, 7, 8 and 9.

Coin toss

If the total is 6, trace Yin
If the total is 7, trace Yang
If the total is 8, trace Yin
If the total is 9, trace Yang
If you toss the coins six times, a six-line hexagram is the title of the answer to your question.
Sixth shot:
Cara / Face / Cruz 3 + 3 + 2 = 8 (Online Yin)
Fifth shot:
Cara / Face / Cruz 3 + 3 + 2 = 8 (Online Yin)
Fourth shot:
Face / Cross / Cruz 3 + 2 + 2 = 7 (Line Yin)
Third shot:
Cara / Face / Face 3 + 3 + 3 = 9 (Yang Line)
Second shot:
Cara / Face / Face 3 + 3 + 3 = 9 (Yang Line)
First printing:
Cara / Face / Face 3 + 3 + 3 = 9 (Yang Line)
