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 Caldron

The question for you to meditate on might be something like, “What creates wealth?” Is it good intentions? Nothing but a pleasant vision of the future? Think, instead, of wealth as something that is created in a great caldron. We have drawn but one image for you from our I Ching Oracle today, and it is the image of The Caldron.

This is one of the most value-laden images in traditional Chinese art and literature. It is associated with the idea of sacrifice to one’s ancestors, and had a prominent role for this reason in iconography that was historically employed by imperial Chinese authority, which was of course intensely dynastic in character. The Caldron expresses at once the ongoing transformation of things – as in various foods that are cooked together in a pot – and also the transcendent and eternal purpose that is served by these ceaseless transformations.

In today’s Reading, the ongoing transformations are those that you bring about in your productive career as a businessman. Think of them, therefore, as being accomplished in a great caldron that sits over burning wood. What would happen if the wood were to be all burned up, nothing left but ash? Why, all of these transformations would cease, and the whole stream of activity in the projects that you are pursuing, and that arose with your karmic ancestors, all this would come to a stop.

Be, then, a man who knows how to hold on to his assets and how to put them to productive use. He does NOT merely hope for the best. He takes responsibility for his own fate. Meditate on the central verse associated with the image of The Caldron. In it, the oracle says, “Fire over wood: The image of THE CALDRON. Thus the superior man consolidates his fate by making his position correct.”

The image of The Caldron promises you good fortune. In the Judgment, the oracle says, “The Caldron. Supreme good fortune. Success.” In order to leave no doubt as to the right path to this success, I will also quote the two so-called “ruling” verses associated with this very powerful image. In the first, the oracle says, “The ting has yellow handles, golden carrying rings. Perseverance furthers.” And in the other ruling verse, the oracle says, “The ting has rings of jade. Great good fortune. Nothing that would not act to further.” These verses speak for themselves, promising attainment to all of your goals.
