What is I Ching?

The “I Ching” or “Book of change” is a Divination technique based on a series of symbols called Trigrams and Hexagrams. It’s a tool for asking questions and getting answers. 

The system of trigrams and hexagrams is well-respected in Chinese metaphysics. Invented by Fu Hsi around 4500 BC, it has been used as a powerful forecasting tool by emperors and nobleman. The technique is able to reveal accurate underlying information of a complex situation and is regarded as an indispensable metaphysical tool for forecasting and decision making. Screen Shot 2013-09-10 at 9.32.20 PM

To perform I Ching divination, one needs to have a clear, specific question which is qualified by a range of time. For example, one can ask: “What is my chance of promotion to department manager within six months?”
