I Ching is considered to
be the Oldest Oracle & Book of Conduct on Earth. It is at least 1500 years
older than Confucius, who added commentaries to the lines of the sixty-four
hexagrams of the I Ching. It is used to predict events, but more often as a way
to promote self-development and to contact one’s Higher Self. Situations or
observed moments, usually created by the toss of three coins or yarrow stalks,
define one of sixty-four elemental states of being represented by the hexagrams.

Iridology is the analysis
of the iris of the eye, which reveals pertinent information about the condition
of the body. Acting as an early warning system, Iridology can indicate genetic
and functional weaknesses, tissue and organ condition, areas of nutritional

constitution. This information is acquired by “reading” the fiber and
markings of the iris, which (to the well trained eye of the Iridologist) is
indicative of specific body areas and the corresponding conditions.

The Kabbalistic “Tree of
Life” transmits divine grace upon our world and also provides a safe structure
for ascension to the divine realms. The Kabbalist yearns for the experience of
direct contact with the divine and the recovery of cosmic consciousness without
renouncing the world. According to Kabbalah every human action here on earth
affects the divine realm, and it is up to us to actualize divine potential in

doctors of chiropractic.
