I am very honoured to offer you the opportunity to seek an I Ching reading. These are not conducted by myself however, they are undertaken by an experienced reader and interpreter who dwells amongst the mountains of North Wales. He has kindly chosen The Temple Of Cornwall to act as an intermediary for this work.
The I Ching began in China some two and a half millennia ago, during the Western Zhou Period. It was refined and developed over the next few hundred years until it became what it is today. It is often referred to in English as, 'The Book of Changes'. An apt title for something that offers to help with the hard decisions if life.
It is important to appreciate however that the I Ching does not tell you what to do. It cannot provide a yes/no answer to your question. What it does is to take the settings that you have chosen (see below) and apply the many relevant ancient wisdom's to the circumstances relative to your question. It enriches your decision making with a deep, probing and varied amount of 'room for thought'.
The actual I Ching comprises six horizontal lines which nay be broken lines or whole. These six lines can be made into 64 different hexagrams (Groups of six) and, depending on your choices, may even change into other hexagrams which provide yet more suggested ways to help you decide.
Reading and interpreting the hexagrams takes a deal of experience, time and application. The explanations are around 2000 plus years old and rooted in the early Chinese philosophies. Confucius was a devotee. Should you be concerned that this may possibly take you somewhere you would rather not go, do not worry. All you will expected to do is to outline a question, together with some brief details where suitable, Example - question - Should I take my 12 year old son to live with his father so we can all be together ? Relevant information - Son is an above average student and loves his school, I would have to sell my house and pay half the rent of his father's home.)
Please also be assured that confidentiality and privacy are rigorously maintained. Your information, question and reading will not be accessed by anyone but me and the reader. Nor will on line files be maintained in order to prevent data mining. The I Ching does not run contrary to any religion, it is simply a philosophical route to thinking about an answer to your problem. You are not of course under any compulsion to accept whatever the reading says but it would be surprising if the variety of information did not provide something helpful.
How to pose your question and make your choices - Think about what you want assistance with and formulate a question .If that question could be answered yes or no or too brief then perhaps needs a little more Delphi. It is often useful to start with - - 'Should I --.' Then to make your choices for me to form the hexgrams do the following.
Take three coins, 20 pence or 5 pence pieces work well. Hold them in your cupped hands and, whilst contemplating you problem, drop the coins onto a soft surface.. (To stop them rolling) You need to do this six separate times, note which sides of the coins are uppermost and record the results. It is important that the results are recorded from first to sixth. For example as follows - 1st choice - heads, heads tails, 2nd choice tails tails tails, 3rd choice heads tails tails - etc. D not worry if the the coins keep repeating the same format, the system can cope with that.
Any problems then please, just ask.
