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.

I want to begin this Reading by focusing on the image of Increase, because it grounds this entire Reading in the very positive message that it has to convey to you. This message assures you of excellent success and progress, now, and for the future. The image of Increase describes what I like to call “The Support of Nature,” which is that mysterious and ineffable thing that makes everything we do a blessing. Thus, in the so-called Judgment verse that has been associated with the image of Increase, the oracle says, “Increase. It furthers one to undertake something. It furthers one to cross the great water.”

Normally, by the way, two images emerge from the I Ching in a consultation, The occasional appearance of just one image from the I Ching is not a function of our own choice. The I Ching Oracle is consulted by means of a meditative practice in which a series of six numbers is divined. These six numbers ordinarily result in the drawing of two images, but not always. When just one image appears, the message tends to be emphasized to some degree, or it describes a situation that should be considered temporarily outside the bounds of the river of change. Change is not eliminated from the process, only suspended to a degree until the task is accomplished. The appearance of just one image is an indication that one is solidly in the midst of a specific and particular phase or task in life. Or, as in this Reading, it characterizes the whole course of life’s development in a very specific and concrete manner. For this image to be Increase in your case is to be very fortunate indeed. It means that you can expect your life to follow a path of consistent progress.

Well, that is to say, you can expect this IF you always act in good faith. What does this mean, “good faith”? The I Ching Oracle defines it in the central verse associated with the image of Increase. In this verse, the oracle says, “Wind and thunder: the image of Increase. Thus the superior person: if she sees good, she imitates it; if she has faults, she rids herself of them.”

Thus, the Judgment is qualified and your own role in the manifestation of your own success is very clearly emphasized. Act now in good faith, and your success, your “increase,” is guaranteed. Acting in good faith means being committed to your own truth, or to put it another way, to act in good conscience. In the art of life, the emphasis is only being sincere, being REAL. Otherwise, one lives an imitation of life, and never quite gets it right.

And the keyword is “act.” It shouldn’t be lost on you that the Judgment verse for the image of Increase tells you to “undertaking something.” You see a major task ahead of you. It separates you from the future that you want to enjoy. Cross over it, just as Caesar crossed the river, Rubicon. He saw the path to his glory and he took it. “Cross the great water,” or, in other words, DO what you have as yet only contemplated.
