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 Clinging

This counsel of faith comes to you also through the images that we have drawn for you from our I Ching Oracle. The image of The Clinging is very interesting. The image describes the phenomenon of fire, and through the idea of earthly fire the mind contemplates the eternal dimension of limitless life and light that inspires true faith in every receptive soul. As I said, the image is very interesting, primarily because, in its structure, it describes the dependence of the eternal dimension on the earthly dimension. Earth, of course, is solid and heavy, in essence opaque and dark. But, you see, light cannot be made manifest without a background of darkness on which it reflects itself. This idea of the mutual dependence of opposites, the one on the other, is a constant in all Chinese philosophy. Darkness and light require each other, or rather arise together, inseparably joined, just as the positive and negative poles of a magnet cannot be severed. Cut a magnet in two, and you will still have a positive and a negative pole. They may shift places to some extent, but they cannot exist in isolation from each other.

Thus, in one of the verses that has been highlighted specifically by today’s Reading from the image of The Clinging, the oracle says, “Tears in floods, sighing and lamenting. Good fortune.” This may strike you as a strange conjunction of ideas – sorrow and good fortune. But think of it terms of the polarity that I just discussed in the paragraph above. Sorrow is as much a part of life as joy. But the thing to keep focused on is life, which both sorrow and joy hold in common. For life implies by its very nature good fortune. This is the faith that you need to maintain at all times. Don’t be led astray by the sadness and hurt that you have experienced in the past. There is yet a very great joy to be experienced in your life in the present and future. And in the second verse that has been highlighted specifically by today’s Reading from the image of The Clinging, this is explicitly promised to you. Very simply, the oracle says, “Yellow light. Supreme good fortune.”
