A COUPLE of months ago, Aa and I had to revise our travel plans because we missed a flight coming out of Clark Airport. It was necessary for us to go on this flight to attend a Feng Shui Course with our mentor, Grandmaster Raymond Lo.
We had to decide which was the best time to take for the alternate flight, the 8 p.m.. one with Cebu Pacific, or the 9 pm one with Jetstar.
There was ample time for us to make it to either, but I wanted to be sure.
We pulled over at the side of the road, and Aa brought out his I-Ching coins. Focusing only on the question, I threw the coins. Aa took note and interpreted the results.
The 8 pm flight was a no-no. I-Ching advised us to take the later flight.
We were in Balintawak at 4 pm. That should have given us more than enough time to make it to the airport. But traffic had begun to move at a snail's pace. If we had taken the Cebu Pacific one, we would have been late again.
One of our clients wanted to know whether she would easily land another job if she resigned from work. I-Ching answered she would find one within a month after resigning. True enough, she did.
Another, whom we met in February, wanted to know if her boyfriend would marry her despite some relationship complications. I-Ching said yes, he would. She came back in June to tell us the good news that they were now making plans for their wedding.
Proof of the clear and concise manner that I-Ching answers was when a client asked for advice regarding her clinic. She was planning to renovate and temporarily move her practice elsewhere. She was born year of the Tiger, and was aware that her animal sign needed to be cautious about making major moves and decisions because this was a Monkey year.
Tigers are in clash with the Monkey, making Tigers one of the less lucky animal signs this year.
Aa and Chiara, both graduates of Feng Shui Grandmaster Raymond Lo’s Four Pillars of Destiny and I-Ching Divination Courses in Singapore, asked her to focus on her question, and toss the I-Ching coins.
The resulting hexagram gave her a direct answer. It was okay for her to renovate, but not to transfer to a different clinic. The answer specifically stated that if she moved temporarily, 2 of her competitors would benefit more from her renovation than her, and in the end, would defeat her practice.
True enough, she said, there were 2 other dentists within the same block as her clinic.
One other time, another client came to us about a missing bag which contained valuable items. The I-Ching reading specified for them to look near a fire aspect. Aa suggested for them to look around their fireplace or in their kitchen. Again, true enough, they found the bag near their fireplace, hidden under the sofa.
Still another time, another client wanted to know who took the money from her daughter’s wallet. After interpreting the results, Aa told her the person who took the money was born year of the Goat. The new help our client hired was born year of the Goat.
Amazingly direct answers with I-Ching!
I-Ching is an ancient form of Chinese divination using 3 coins. Answers are derived from interpreting the lines formed after tossing the coins while focusing on the question.
I-Ching gives you a window into the future where you can ask yourself a question.
The first time I encountered I-Ching was way back in college. The process was simple but answers were subject to a lot of interpretation. There was emphasis on changing lines because this changed the resulting hexagram.
Grandmaster’s Lo’s I-Ching, as taught to Aa and Chiara, require more than just interpreting the changing lines and the hexagrams. It entails determining the subject and the object, the relationship between each of the lines, the elements of the day and month, the elements of the questions, and the elements of each line of the hexagram. Complicated, yes, but answers are clearer.
It still gives me a deep sense of gratitude when I remember how I-Ching gave a direct answer about something we wanted to sell. I asked two different questions, one regarding the item, another regarding an interested buyer, and got the same answer. My youngest son Byren asked a differently worded question a third time and still we got the same answer. The buyer was going to give the first payment, but will hide when the next one is due because her friends will not keep their promise to help her make the 2nd payment.
Grateful for I-Ching because it saved us from unnecessary head-ache and regret.
If you want to know more about I-Ching or need answers to outcomes to circumstances or decisions to make, schedule a reading with Aa.
