Some ways Yi doesn’t answer your question

Sunday, July 26th, 2015

This oracle, as I keep saying, isn’t a slot machine. It’s not ‘insert question, get answer’. Someone who is completely familiar and comfortable with Yi does not therefore receive the answers to all their questions and live in a state of perfect certainty. What they are is deeply engaged in conversation with the whole reality […]

Consulting under the sky

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

From time to time, someone asks me about the validity of consulting with a computer program. Does it work – are the answers real? I always say yes, it works. What matters is not the physical method, but the quality of your attention. I have plenty of experience to back this up: both powerful, clear […]

‘3 coin casting’ video

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

I’ve taken my courage (and three shiny 10p pieces) in both hands and created another video. This one with my face in…   It’s about how to consult the I Ching with three coins.

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

The first 7 reasons to keep a journal

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

(Note… of course this post is here now because the Resonance Journal is coming tomorrow. Other means of keeping a journal are also available!) At the beginning of my last Resonance Journal video, I mentioned a couple of (embarrassingly obvious) reasons why it’s good to be able to remember readings. I thought I could enlarge […]

Recurring hexagrams

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

I’d been planning on writing a devastatingly insightful post about some rarefied, recondite connection you can find between readings with the Resonance Journal. Maybe the karmic significance of a repeated nuclear hexagram emerging as primary when you ask a Big Question – something deep and meaningful like that. Only when I actually started looking through […]
