Hexagram 63 continued

Friday, January 16th, 2015

‘…and now the conclusion.’ So as I was saying… trigrams, in Hexagram 63. On the inside, li, fire and light: vision, awareness, lucidity. As an inner trigram, li tends to mean insight into the nature of the time. On the outside, kan, dark depths and unceasingly moving waters that can flow anywhere and take any […]

Hexagram 63, Already Across (a beginning)

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

63 seems a good choice of hexagram to write about at the turn of the year, with its theme of endings-and-beginnings. Hexagrams 63 and 64, of course, stand at the very end of the Yijing, and they deal with themes of completion and arrival – or not. Their very order in the Sequence – Already […]

‘Enliven’ email course

Monday, December 15th, 2014

The blog has gone quiet lately, and is likely to remain quiet until I finish up the ‘Enliven’ email course. This is an eclectic mix of ideas for bringing your relationship with guidance to life (hence the title!) through keeping a journal. That includes dreams and synchronicities as well as Yi.

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 […]

The distance of line 6

Saturday, October 18th, 2014

  Image © Freeteo I’ve taken to thinking just about the position of a changing line, as a starting point for looking at its imagery and connections – and it’s surprising how often this provides the key to a reading. Line 6, for instance. We’ve passed line 5 – the culmination, the place of the […]
