Close out 2018 with your personal message from the I-Ching!


The I-Ching is the culmination of Chinese thought concerning the nature of our reality.

The wise men of ancient China discovered that YIN and YANG pulsate in various degrees in all things in our world.

The black vibration of YIN is dark, passive, feminine, nurturing, intuitive and corresponds to Earth or matter. The white vibration of YANG is light, active, masculine, creative, expansive and corresponds to Heaven or spirit.

YIN and YANG are constantly interacting to create the rhythm of our lives. The Chinese realized that life was indeed a rhythmic existence. The philosophy of the I-Ching is simple and says if we keep ourselves in tune with the cosmos, all things will work out for good.

Combinations of YIN and YANG were combined to form a total of 64 hexagrams which are made up of solid YANG lines __________ which represents one beat and broken YIN lines ____ ____ which represent two beats (like the lub-dub of our heartbeat).

In order to “drum” the I-CHING, each person thinks of a question they would like insight on and “throws” 3 coins, six times to determine a six-line pattern. Each of the 64 patterns have a unique message which will relate to their “question.” The six-line pattern is then drummed which pulses through the body, effecting change and balance. Drumming with others in a small group enhances the vibrational power of each person’s pattern.

Although it may sound complicated, once the system is practiced it is quite easy to use and is always illuminating the area/areas which need attention in our lives.
