I-Ching series (work in progress) for all aspects of life, martial arts, medicine, philosophy, Tao.
Meditate, ask a sincere question, and cast the I-Ching using the 3 coin method. If you don’t know the 3 coin method find out here.
Read the Hexagrams below from your cast. If it changed into another hexagram, read that one too!
Martial: the martial portion is based on 3 things. 1: the 64 Hou tiens of Gao’s linear Bagauzhang. These represent martial principle and movement concepts. See book reference at bottom of page” “Walking the I-Ching” for complete info. If you know the 64 Houtien’s, more power to you, practice them diligently!!. The Taiji: these are the postures you can stand/hold or drill over and over, combine them into a practice. Bagua: these are the Animal forms you can walk and change into or use as a standing meditation postures/qigong.
Medical: only lists the channel/vessel. It is NOT for acupuncture self treatment, a professional acupuncture/herbalist should do so. Your body is unique and a doctor needs to determine your treatment strategy. We are only listing the channels used in Chinese i-ching medical theory. What you might be able to do, is when holding postures, understand those skin areas, muscular/tendon regions, channels, and vessels as a form of Neijia (inner work) training that is described. For example: Tai Yang is the back/dorsal side of the body and posterior part of arm. Meridian tracing massage may be useful as well.
