I-Ching is also known as Yijing. This is a psychic practice that means ‘classic of changes’ or ‘book of changes.’ The practice comes from a very old text from China, and is one of the oldest practices to be classified with New Age oracles.
I-Ching is probably best known for its uses of hexagrams to provide clarity and meaning to life’s questions. I-Ching provides insight into our higher self, allowing our subconscious minds to pinpoint answers to the questions we have.
This practice involves consulting the i-Ching and the hexagrams as an oracle. Throwing coins or yarrow sticks are used to create one of 64 main kinds of hexagrams, which all mean something different. Each hexagram is made up of six lines, which can be broken or unbroken depending on the shape. The unbroken lines are the yang of the symbol, while the broken lines are the yin. This balance is the foundation of the universe, according to some Eastern belief systems that i-Ching is based in.
Whatever shape is made results in a hexagram, which has a meaning to the question you asked.
