The Images (Hexagrams) of the I Ching Oracle in Psychic Readings

Psychic Readings from The Psychic Internet often feature images drawn from the I Ching Oracle. To offer supplementary information about these images for our clients, and for the public, we have provided this archive of brief articles.

The abstract images of the I Ching Oracle (usually called "hexagrams") symbolize all of the related and interacting aspects of reality. In the following excerpts from actual Psychic Readings, the images of the I Ching are discussed.

The Arousing

You probably recall that the last time that the image of The Arousing [also called Shock] appeared in one of our weekly Readings about your business affairs – and you may remember also that the image describes the natural phenomenon of thunder. It appeared of course for your Reading of September 8, 2001. However, I hasten to add, the appearance of this image again in today’s Reading is not intended to frighten or to alarm you.

Because of the terrible and sudden nature of the World Trade Center debacle, one naturally wonders if a situation described by the oracle as one of Shock is ordinarily accompanied by such an event. And as things are in the world, we never know exactly when and if another shock such as this will occur. It must be understood first, with respect to this present appearance of the image of Shock, that it pertains to the overall situation in which we find ourselves in the world. Thus, for example, I can tell you that the crisis between India and Pakistan is having an influence in everybody’s life than one might NOT suppose from listening to the mainstream media. In fact, the reverberations of this shock, which emerges out of the realization of what it means to have nuclear weapons proliferating all around the globe, are having an incalculable effect on the subconscious mind of every conscious individual. Most people are not aware of the power of this “silent” reverberation, because they are looking for a very “loud” bang such as we heard last September. The world has entered upon a new era, and I think everybody is registering the “shock of the new.” This is an unprecedented historic moment in a hundred and one ways.

Obviously, you are a man of the world. When the world suffers loss, your own fortunes reflect that loss in a very concrete way. But you are more than JUST a man of the world. You have taken a path of expanding consciousness, and so this makes you a man of the world who is very different from most other men of the world.

Now to say that you are taking a path of expanding consciousness means that you perceive, and live according to your sense of something that I may call Divinely Creative Beneficence. You understand that there is a beneficent creative power in the Universe – call it God, or Love, or Tao, or Great Spirit, this last being the one I prefer because it has been the favorite expression of the incomparably noble and free American people who are called the Dakota Sioux. There are people who have come so close to this Reality as to make the word “faith” too insubstantial to describe their response to it.

It is at just such times as now that the word “faith” seems most inadequate. Especially to those who have none. This is why the I Ching Oracle made a distinction between you and your neighbors. In short, today’s Reading tells you to be in command even when it seems that fate has preempted you at every turn. In the words of the Judgment verse that is associated with the image of The Arousing, “The shock terrifies for a hundred miles, and he does not let fall the sacrificial spoon and chalice.”

Be the sword master who parries every thrust, from whatever direction it comes. He always moves from a center of absolute calm and implacable unwavering will. The storm of battle rages around him, but he acts as if in the eye of a hurricane. The sun of his inner enlightenment never fades, and so the worst of the storm never touches him.

This idea is expressed in the verse that is highlighted specifically for you by today’s Reading from the image of The Arousing. In it the oracle says, “Shock brings ruin and terrified gazing around. Going ahead brings misfortune. If it has not yet touched one's own body but has reached one's neighbor first, there is no blame. One’s comrades have something to talk about.”
