How to use the Intuitive Learning Circles™ to consult with important books of divination like the I Ching or The Book of Change ~
The I Ching (pronounced ee cheeng) is an ancient book of divination that follows and predicts movements and energy flow in the cosmos. Intuitive readings that recognize the Tao encourage us to find our place in the cosmos and harmonize with it.
“To move with the tao (or gate through which all things move) is to be in a state of grace.”
One of the best things about The Book of Change is that it’s uniquely equipped to help you understand the nature of your circumstances in relation to the ebb and flow of nature itself.
This symbol helps your mind tune into information regarding the “Tao” or the natural flow of life, which is what the Book of Change is all about.
It’s easy to do, just relax and gently contemplate coming into alignment with the Tao.
Rheanni Lightwater – Intuitive Reading from the Book of Change
Intuitive readers often say that it’s difficult to do a reading for yourself and that’s true. However, whenever I consult The Book of Change with the Intuitive Learning Circles™ I get very good results. With them, I am informed about key unconscious movements, concerns and decisions that need to be made within my psyche. For example, I often get forewarnings of unexpected or accidental encounters that I simply could not have been aware of on my own.
A simple sequence of Circles from Gifts from the Rainforest helps you frame a question or intention for an intuitive reading that you wouldn’t be able to formulate without a lot of experience. If you already have a particular question in mind or a choice that you’re considering, use it as a starting point.
This is the formula I use for insight into a variety of issues including health, timing and healing emotional dilemmas:
Come Into Balance with the Book of Change
Make sure the chakras for your senses are connected, balanced and clear.
Continue enhancing intuition by calming your senses and bringing them into balance. Some may be turned up too high and some may be too low. Relax and allow your eyes to rest gently on the Circle below.
Take some deep breaths and let your shoulders drop. Adjust the volume to your senses. Do that both crossed and uncrossed over the midline of your body to achieve greater mind body integration.
The chakra at your sacrum (sacred bone) is an access point for tapping into the flow of the Tao. Take a minute to make sure it’s connected and balanced as well.
Begin by slowing down, so that you can get in better touch with the best intention for your reading. Gaze softly at this Intuitive Learning Circle™ for slowing down with an affirmation like:
“I slow down and bring my attention in, towards what’s truly important at this time.”
While gazing softly at this next Circle, sort through your mind like you would sort through a pile of messy papers on your desk when you’re looking for something. You come across a really important piece of paper (or several) that you didn’t know was there. Use the Circle to help you find it and pull it out.

Move your attention to this next Circle and ask your gut:
“What do I need clarity about?”
Be patient and wait for information or an intention to emerge. Whatever comes up, make a note of it. Unconscious information often doesn’t make sense at first. Usually, it’s a general subject, possibly one that isn’t currently on your radar. Go with it and refrain from trying to force things or second guess yourself.
Or go to one of the Circles from Gifts from the Rainforest. Pick #1 – 49.
Continue your investigation. What concerns you about this issue?
Hopefully, by now more details are emerging from the unconscious mind and you’re more aware of them. If you sense an important Soul issue, go to a Circle from Soul Prayer Charts to help you know what it is. Pick #1-24.
Determine the Emotional Environment
Is there a particular emotion(s) that’s causing distress?
Are you holding that emotion towards yourself? Towards others or others to self?
Is there a decision about yourself that you need to change?
Is there an attitude, compulsion, obsession, or phobia that needs to be healed?
Choose An I Ching Hexagram
The symbol below is from SOS Soul Oriented Solutions and can be used to go through any list of possible choices where you want your Soul to help you find the opening to a solution and determine what process will help you the best. All you need to be is open and ask for true assistance. It’s especially good at helping you make a choice, fine tune your intuition and listen to your gut feelings.
In the case of the Book of Change, there are sixty-four hexagrams that might have useful information for you. So gaze at the SOS symbol and experiment with it. Remember that in this case, you’re looking for information or advice that will help you deal with the situation you just came up with.
What number between 1 – 64 comes to you first? Follow your inner guidance. If your mind is blocked or blank go here>
Whatever number comes to you, open your Book of Change and go to that Hexagram. You might need to read the whole commentary or just a portion of it. There are also what is called “changing lines” and you might be guided to read one of those. It could even be just one sentence!
Once you’ve read the advice, you may understand the message immediately or you might want to continue to get an even more detailed understanding.
For example, perhaps you’d like more information about timing or how to synchronize your response in the most effective way.
This symbol is about timing and synchronization. Let your mind gently contemplate the symbol. Remember, no forcing! The more relaxed you are, the better this works.
The whole point of consulting the I Ching is to help you see your situation clearly so that you’re able to make an effective plan for handling it. As you look at the Circle below, ask yourself: “In this situation, what is the best timing for effective action?”
or “How long will this period of time go on?”
“Is there any danger present now?”
“If so, will it pass on it’s own or should I do something?”
“What can I do specifically to help myself?”
“Is there a number in the I Ching that can help me with that?”
If a hexagram number between 1-64 comes to you, go to that hexagram and do what you did earlier – read the portions that come up as important. If a number doesn’t come up, continue on with the question below.
“What do I need to do now?”
and “How might I go about doing it?”
You may get a clear answer through the Circle itself or you could be given another hexagram number and/or changing line. It may be the same or it may be different. Keep following this line of questioning until you feel satisfied with your answers. Write them down so you don’t forget.
Once you’re finished with your reading from the Book of Change, be sure to thank your unconscious mind and yourself for making the time to take care of yourself.
