About the “Enneagram – I Ching” Model

The I Ching or the Canon of Changes in the “Enneagram – I Ching” model is used as the universal model of world perception and algorithm of all possible changes taking place in the universe, state, society life and that of the individual.

The I-Ching hexagrams for the first time ever in this very model are considered as the pattern-models of psycho-physiological states that shape human behavior in all possible life situations. As for the hexagrams lines, they are considered in the model to be the two integral parts of behavior: conscious and unconscious.

There are 64 hexagrams in the I-Ching.
The “Enneagram – I Ching” model features 64 informative cards.
Each of the 64 cards is a unique model of the corresponding I Ching hexagram, which allows not only to find the cause of a particular situation, but the way to solve it – a way out of the situation, displayed explicitly in each card-model.

  • One card is the basic model standard.
  • The rest 63 cards are patterns of all possible standard model distortion.

At the same time the basic model standard card serves as the universal standard for: any task; state of consciousness; psycho-physiological or emotional state, etc.

But in real life, to find only the reason, caused this or that situation and even get out of it, is not enough – SINCE AFTER ALMOST ANY SITUATION we inevitably create and move into a new, often unpredictable and therefore not always favorable.
It may take a lifetime to search causes and ways out of even one of the adverse situation, not mentioning a few transitions from one unfavorable situation into the same next. To proof this, a life experience of a sufficiently large number of people may serve.

In the “Enneagram – I Ching” model this is the “Wen Wang arrangement of the 64 hexagrams” which SOLVES THIS PROBLEM, being used as ALGORITHM for the shortest transition paths (making up cards chains) from any situation to the favorable one (model standard). Read details below.

What differs the Digital from that of the Printed Version

The Digital Version of the “Enneagram – I Ching” model features a computer program designed to immediately solve urgent problems arising in everyday life.
It is ready for practical use by anyone, regardless of their age, health, education, social status, association to particular culture or religious tradition.
To start using the model, no prior knowledge or skills are required. It is enough to read the rules: how to set the goal for your session and how to view the charts in the cards.

To make everything clear, let me clarify what differs the Digital Version from Printed Version?

The main difference is that each version has its own specific purpose.

  • The main goal to use Printed Version is to change the existing mindset with the Creative one and not only to solve everyday life issues.
  • As for the Digital Version it allows you to deal with a variety of pain, emotional states (ex: states associated with painful memories of the past, fear, melancholia, sadness, anger, envy, etc.), relationships. In other words, it can help you meet the challenges arising right now.

It should also be noted that, initially the Digital Version has been created at the numerous requests of the Printed Version users, as a convenient additional application to the Printed Cards Set and because in urgent cases it allows to conduct a session anywhere and anytime immediately.

In Digital Version, all the transitions steps from any situation to the situation of normal (card #1 ‘The Directing Power of Heaven’, also known in I-Ching as ‘Creative’) are pre-installed by the unique web-site program.

  • So, on the one hand, using the Digital Version, after you’ve set the goal for your session, you do not need to build a chain of cards and spend time on it, which you need when you are using the Printed Cards Set.
  • On the other hand, the fact that the card chains are pre-installed does not involve going through 5 initial stages to change the existing type of thinking with the Creative one. So, using only Digital Version doesn’t allow to reveal the full of the “Enneagram – I Ching” model.

How to set goals for individual sessions..

The first method.

  • Tune in to the topic of interest or put your real-life question involving a problem you are facing right at this moment: “My relationship with (name of person)”, “I’m scared of getting sick (name of disease)”, “I’m still ashamed of (act from the past, feeling).” – this is the goal setting process.
  • Start your session by clicking the button “Start New Session”.
  • On the screen you’ll see a random card, chosen by a the program.
  • Look through the charts in the first card (how to, read below).
  • When you have finished viewing the first card, say: “I (pronounce your name) finished my work with the card (pronounce the card number).
  • Continue your session by clicking the button “Next”. View the charts in all the next cards of the chain.
  • The last card in any chain is card #1. When you have finished to view the charts in the card #1, look at the Symbol of the Enneagram (the 3rd chart in the card #1) and pronounce your name. This is the best way to connect the sound of your Name with ideal Symbol of the Enneagram.
  • To finish your session say: “I (pronounce your name), finished my work with (pronounce the goal, you set for your session). Now you may Create a New Life Situation for example to call your best friend

The second method is perfect and the most effective.

To set the goal for your session, it is enough to feel in your body and realize in your mind (it is less necessary) what you want to get rid of [what you have] or what you want to achieve [what you don’t have]: in other words, you just need to create a state associated with your task.

  • Concentrate for a few seconds on this state – this is the goal setting process.
  • This very moment, start your session by clicking the button “Start New Session”.
  • On the screen you’ll see a random card, chosen by the program.
  • Focus on the first card.

Read the card number and the name (not interpreting).

  • Go back again to your “problem state” to check whether you still feel it.
  • Look through the 1st chart in the 1st card of your chain. Right after that, for a few seconds, go back to your “problem state” to check its intensity (not interpreting it). Do the same after viewing EACH CHART in EACH CARD of the chain.
  • Continue your session by clicking the button “Next”. View the charts in all the next cards of the chain.
  • You already know, that the last card in any chain is card #1. When you have finished to view the charts in the card #1, look at the Symbol of the Enneagram (the 3rd chart in the card #1) and pronounce your name. This is the best way to connect the sound of your Name with ideal Symbol of the Enneagram.
  • To finish your session say: “I (pronounce your name) finished my work with (pronounce the goal, you set for your session).

Now you may Create a New Life Situation for example to make a cup of coffee.

Important.

Of course, the printed version is the perfect tool. Using the printed version you easily get perfect results.
The digital version is less effective.

Why is it so and how we can strengthen the Digital Version up to the level of the Printed Version.

The idea that Digital Version is less effective, comes from the fact that when we perceive any image on the screen of a computer or smartphone, the “wave”, as one of three components of the whole (complete) perception is absent.

Fortunately, there are two amazing tips on how to get around this obstacle, enhance the effect of any session using the Digital Version and get the same stable results as if you were using the Printed Cards Set.

  • When viewing each chart, pay attention to segments, which coincide/ do not coincide with the Enneagram ‎Symbol (not pausing or interpreting). And remember that a Random Card will always be the First, and Card #1 will always be the Last One in ANY chain to view (how to, read below).

  • To enhance the effect of your session even more, simply drag/ redraw the charts of the cards from the screen onto a blank sheet of paper and now view those charts from this sheet.

Many of my students who already use the print version also, have recently begun to practice this method. All of them were surprised having got excellent, and even more sustainable results. Doing so, you eliminate the problem of “no wave”. Even more – you enhance the result of your session involving in the process of solving the problem your kinesthetic system (“body memory”) in addition to your visual system.
Just keep in mind the rule to redraw the charts exactly in accordance with the code, which is written under each chart – always start with the first digit of the code.
Try this method too!

So, both versions of the model initially can help you meet the challenges arising right now, in your everyday life. Open your mind to New Things! Be creative!

How to view the charts in any card.

There are 3 charts in each card: the 1st, the 2nd, the 3rd.

  • The 1st chart (left) reflects perceived part of the situation (behavior or state)
  • The 2nd chart (middle) reflects unconscious part
  • The 3rd chart (right) reflects the situation as a whole, i.e. perceived part – 1st chart (what we understand and explain using words) and unconscious parts – 2nd chart, joined together by a “bridge” (in psychology, it is called “the conscious-unconscious interface”).

Order to view the charts in the card: start with the 1st, then the 2nd, then the 3rd chart.
The start and the end point to view any chart is the 1st digit of the chart’s code. ‎
For example, lets take chart ‎: 4-2-8-7.‎
There are 4 segments in this chart.‎
Each segment has its own name. Pronounce aloud the full name of each segment:‎ ‎four-two”, two-eight, “eight-seven, seven-four”‎.
Pronounce aloud the full name of each segment viewing any chart in any card of any chain.

Time to view: 1-1.5 minute for each chart, i.e. 2-3 minutes for each card.‎

Time to view any cards chain: 20 minutes.
It is exactly the time necessary in order to spread the information throughout the system, we usually call “Mind-Body”.
Viewing cards in any chain, you may also go back to previous card/ cards. To do it, click the button “Previous”.

  • Maximum number of cards in a chain – 7. Minimum – 2.

Please remember, to get better results, any session should last 20 minutes.
However, if your headache disappeared on the 7th minute of the session – you have reached your goal! In this case, before you finish your session, look at the perfect Enneagram Symbol (3rd picture in card #1) and pronounce your Name.
To finish your session say: “I (pronounce your name) finished my work with (pronounce the goal, you set for your session).
Now you may Create a New Life Situation for example to go for a walk in the nearest park.

This way you set your mind not only to solve current problems, but teach yourself be responsible when you create new life situation (1st chart), be inside (2nd chart) and сomplete the situation and get out of it (3rd chart), getting the outcome which you created the situation for.
If you haven’t got the result immediately, then the solution will come later for sure. Just keep on training.

You may create new cards chain to deal with the same “problem” in each 3 hours.
The headache may disappear at the 5th minute of the session, but in order to get rid of “migraine” (or other chronic disease), it is necessary to conduct 2-3 sessions a day (or two days) – in this case, the exact rhythm of your sessions is important.

  • Working regularly with the “Enneagram – I Ching” model cards you will set up your mind to good health and creativity.
