Initial I Ching experience

 

I was introduced to I Ching by my first mentor (Aake Y.) when I was 17 or 18 years old. It was the Richard Wilhelm translation. My mentor threw the coins when we were on the phone, asking about me in general, and got Chien (Heaven / The Creative) transforming to Wu (The Wanderer). Within a day or two, I got the same book, asked the same question, and got the same two hexagrams in the same sequence.

During this time of my life – in the years following the initial opening or awakening – my life was full of amazing synchronicities, and this was just one of many. I probably needed it to learn to trust, and trust more deeply. It seems that the chances of this happening – both of us getting the same two hexagrams on the same question – is about 8,192 (64 x 64 x 2) to one.

I seem to need “big” experiences, for instance with the initial awakening, the synchronicities, some dreams, and my first experience with Breema and Vortex Healing. Perhaps it’s because I am a bit stubborn.

Besides using I Ching for synchronicity type guidance, I found the content fascinating and read it repeatedly for the following months and years. It reflected what had been revealed in the initial opening or awakening, and the “download” that followed.

I am visiting my parents right now, and they still live where I was born and grew up, so some of these memories come back to me and I may write a few more here.

Initial notes…..

  • i ching
    • first mentor, cast coins for me – wanderer + heaven
    • I did the same, got the same two + same sequence
    • 64x64x2 = 8192 chance
    • didn’t like the wanderer, and still don’t so much (want to settle down), but does come out in my life even if I don’t really want to

I was introduced to I Ching (the Richard Wilhelm translation) when I was in my mid-teens, and by my first mentor (Aake Y.) He threw the coins when we were on the phone, asking about me in general, and got Chien (Heaven / The Creative) transforming to Wu (The Wanderer). Within a day or two, I got the same book, asked the same question, and got the same two hexagram.

During this time of my life – in the years following the initial opening or awakening – my life was full of amazing synchronicities, and this was just one of many. I probably needed it to learn to trust, and trust more deeply. Writing this, I did a quick calculation and it seems that the chances of this happening – both of us getting the same two hexagrams on the same question – is about 8,192 (64 x 64 x 2).

I seem to need “big” experiences – for instance with the initial awakening, the synchronicities, my first experience with Breema and Vortex Healing. I tend to be a bit stubborn, so that’s perhaps why.

Regardless of this, I found the book fascinating and read it repeatedly for the following months and years.
