The oracle of the I Ching, or Book of Changes can be traced back as far as 3,000 years. The ancient method of divination relied on stem stalks of the yarrow plant; the modern oracle relies of coins that are tossed and interpreted.
There are 64 different life situations the I Ching identifies and each one is represented by a hexagram with broken and unbroken lines. It sounds complicated, but if you remember that the broken lines are “yin” and the unbroken lines are “yang” you can get a sense of the energy each hexagram represents.
If you want to use the I Ching, throw three coins six times. Have a question in mind as the answers are meant to reflect the current time and not the future. Values are assigned to the coins’ sides (heads or tails) and once you have thrown your coins six times, you have built your hexagram from the bottom up. Look up the hexagram configuration in an I Ching book, and you get an interpretation for your question.
