Question

First, have your question ready. Best write the question down. Write down the question makes it clear what you want to ask. It also helps to focus on the question during the process.

Using the Tools

There are many tools people use for I Ching Divination. Please refer to Reference section for details on how to use these tools. Here is the instruction on how to enter the results to get answer.
Yarrow Stalks
Using 50 yarrow stalk, or sticks, is the recommended approcach. It takes lot more time, but gives you chance to focus on your question.

With yarrow stalk, there are 6 rounds of operations. At the end of each round, there will be either 6, 7, 8 or 9 piles (with 4 each) of stalks placed on the table. The numbers represent lines of the Hexagram. Enter numbers from line 1 to line 6 as indicated.

3 Coins
Using three coins is probably more common than others.

Here, enter the number of heads you get. It can be either 0, 1, 2 or 3. The number will be translated to the equivalent line on the Hexagram.

Numbers
When none of the tools are available, use three numbers in random.

Each number should be 3 to 6 digits long. Enter the number, then click on "Next" to proceed.

Dice
You will need to throw the 8-side die twice, and the 6-side die once.

The first value from the 8-side die is for the lower Trigram. The second value from the 8-side die is for the upper Trigram. The final value from the 6-side die is the changing line on the Hexagram.

Others
For any other tools that are not listed, you may convert them to Hexagram lines and choose 50 Yarrow Stalk to enter the values.
