The I Ching, also known as the Book of Changes, is an ancient method of divination believed to be the oldest intact method in the world. Scholars believe it first originated in the 10th century BCE, and though it evolved over time, the I Ching used today is nearly identical to that which informed the lives of millions of people over many thousands of years.
To create the I Ching, scholars studied the natural world -- the sun and stars in the heavens, the plants and animals on earth, as well as elemental forces of fire, water, earth, and wind. They also studied the human patterns in their society -- family and friends, trade and politics, love and war. From these studies emerged grand, unified patterns of interrelated forces with one central nexus of understanding: all elements of life must change, and with acceptance of this change, there can be greater understanding of how to partner with change for optimal results.
The traditional I Ching is a collection of 64 unique patterns. Each is made up of six lines, has its own name, as well as a description of the pattern's meaning. The traditional method of reading the I Ching is to throw sticks or coins onto the ground, examine the patterns they make, then consult the texts to find the corresponding pattern's meaning.
- Rather than using sticks or coins, I read the I Ching using a gorgeously illustrated deck of 64 oracle cards, each containing one unique pattern from the original I Ching text.
