Based on the revered Chinese philosophy with a 5,000-year-old tradition, the I Ching, or Book of Changes, is rich in revelations. An eminent expert on the powers of the subconscious, Joseph Murphy opens the guiding force of this ancient text to anyone with an appreciation of the possibilities. With the help of three coins -- ordinary pennies will do -- readers will learn to apply their intuitive abilities to receive the I Ching's answers.

With a practical outlook, this hands-on guide presents simple techniques for enlisting the I Ching's aid in everyday problem solving and decision making. Murphy explains the I Ching hexagram system, revealing its roots in human psychology and the principle of constant change. Demystifying obscure terms and symbols, the author leads the way to consulting the I Ching for clarity and guidance in times of confusion and crisis. By combining basic mathematical formulas with spiritual awareness, readers will realize the miracle-working potential of their own mind and connect with the I Ching's truths. As a result, they'll gain vital insights into questions about career, family, romance, financial security, and life goals. And they'll discover the wonder of genuine peace of mind.

Secrets of the I Ching does not claim to predict the future. But it does provide the tools to mark any future with the promise of greater personal and spiritual fulfillment.
