Anyone ever use these coins for divining the future?

Well I've never used the actual coins but I did go on a website where you could "cast" the coins in magic pool

I'll try to find the link and post it here.
It's just for fun though - not the real thing.

Maybe someone can explain it to us?
I'd be interested to know - as like you QueenofSheeba - I have no idea what it all means.

Hi, hope you're all fine. The site is Tarot.com and it usually lets you have a free I-Ching read. It gives a little indication of what lies ahead and when you are choosing when to touch the mouse as you move it over the pool it feels a bit like when you are choosing a Tarot card on the online sites. This site has been very kind to me and let me have many wonderful reads. They even send you Karma coins for Tarot on your birthday. Love Flame

I really, truly enjoy the Tarot cards more and feel more in tune with them. Tarot came into my life when I really needed it and I was so very skeptical about it and it just kept 'talking to me' and opened up new doors for me.

Hi Flame
I hope that things are good with you

Thank you for the website link - it's great
It wasn't the one I was trying to find but yours is much better

I'm going to post it on the Tarot string as I'm sure everyone will be interested to try it.

Bump!
This was the last topic in this forum and I feel IChing is a great supplement to a Tarot reading.

Greetings...

When I use the I Ching, I generally use either pennies or quarters.. or whatever "coin of the realm " happens to be handy.

I have purchased the yarrow stalks, but have not had the time to try that meditative approach to the oracle. Has anyone tried this method?

Blessings...

i use the i-ching quite often, i find it quite powerfull, often things it tells of are in the present and near future, in fact the version i have (james legge version) of the i-ching has pretty much been spot on every time

I use pennies of years that are significant to me (such as my birth year for one).
I love I Ching, especially when going through a very difficult time.
For me it's very consoling, calming, rebalancing and refocusing.

This recent hexagram was very timely to me:

INNOCENCE

The time demands an alignment with the flow of the cosmos. This adjustment must be made before futher action is taken, otherwise you will begin to make mistakes. When actions that seem perfectly reasonable and cleverly planned are executed, they will end in difficulty and confusion. In order to harmonize your actions with the cosmos, it will be necessary to adopt an attitude of INNOCENCE. Examine your conscious purpose, without ulterior motive and with complete rectitude. Do not aspire to be rewarded for your actions, nor direct them cunningly toward personal advancement. Act innocently and react spontaneously.

Your instincts should be developed and modified in the direction of natural goodness. Your first inclinations should be to preserve your well-being, clear the way for your fellow man, and take note of worthwhile information. Without integrity and morality in your character you could not trust your instincts, for they might lead you into dangerous situations.

The path to your goal is now an indirect path. You must rely on your principles and inner virtue rather than clever strategies. This will not lead you away from success -- on the contrary. INNOCENCE with spontaneity will bring creativity to many areas of your life. You will appear to your milieu inspired and brilliant. This will give you great influence.

It is important to keep in mind that laws of the cosmos are divine and do not necessarily follow the desires of man. Therefore, when acting in INNOCENCE, you will also experience the unexpected, the exceptional, the unpreditable. Be prepared for a suprising turn of events. What occurs will stimulate new ideas, even if at first this seems unnerving or full of complications.

A state of INNOCENCE could be a refreshing interlude in your personal relationships. Spontaneity can bring great pleasure as well as reveal true feelings and motives, whereas intrigue at this time would only yield perplexity and possibly disaster. Again, INOCENCE may lead to surpirising new areas of unexplored mutual interest.

I use Indian 1 rupee coins. The rupee coin has an ancient buddhist Lion Emblem which I feel help conects to the good of the past.

I hold the coins very tightly, try to feel palm's chi go through the coins while focusing very strongly on the question.

I got Hexagram 36 this way. I tried it more than 2 weeks ago. Yesterday, I tried minor arcana several times [I dont have a Tarot deck, I use playing cards with 4 jokers as Pages]
I kept getting 4 of cups and 9 pentacles.

4 x 9 = 36.

36 = TRANSFORM in numerology.

Yarrow sticks? Any thin wooden piece might work, will try with long twigs and see what happens!

i used to have a I Ching book with beautiful, traditional illustrations...that helped inform me in a very simple way...

i would think a thought or question, then open the book to a random page...always a profound and insightful answer...

i don't know what happened to the book...

these days i'm entranced with witches runes...

I have Randall. But not the traditional coins, the book I have lets you use pennies and one dime. I think it works pretty well, it's very cut and dry though, no wiggle room to make the anser come out the way you want. <:
