Pairs and Crossline Omens
Pairs and Crossline Omens: A Pair is a subtle interpretive tool that describes a deep transformation. This shows you the Types of Pairs, the Internal Dynamic and Matrix of the Pair and how it produces the Guideways or Crossline Omens, hidden pathways and images through which transformation can be activated.
The Matrix of Change
The Matrix of Change is a latent network of connections that empower the hexagrams and lines to signify or release meaning when activated by the charge of an inquirer’s question. This explores the multi-dimensional arrangement of lines, trigrams and hexagrams of Change as a process duplicate of a chaos system, a fractal system in which each part contains and replicates the whole.
The Rainmaker: The story of the Rainmaker is central to using the Guideways. It offers you a way to understand what you are doing when you enter the inner space of a reading. This story is based on an event experienced by Richard Wilhelm, the first significant translator of the I Ching.

They effect a change in the way we perceive ourselves and our world, putting the two halves of our intelligence, cognitive and imagistic, back together again. All the parts of Change are symbols, omen animals that store, carry and release the wisdom of the Ancestors.
