About Us,…

We are former Educators, Clinical Social Workers and Mechanics:

As former clinical social workers with a broad range of training in the field of mental health, we became dissatisfied with western approaches to inner balance. Traditional western systems take a functional approach to emotional stability often based on the idea that talking in the form of counseling might alleviate imbalances.

While for some people this is true, for others something more is needed.

In the early nineteen eighties, we left our successful psychotherapy practices in order to pursue an eastern approach to emotional stability and wellness products. The eastern view takes a structural approach, viewing the consciousness as an electromagnetic system through which life force must flow. In the eastern view, blockages in the flow of life force produces imbalances at all levels.

We here at I Ching Tools pledge to treat you, our customer, with the utmost respect and individual attention.

At I Ching Tools, our mission is simple: to assist individuals in the quest to find Inner Balance.

30 years of R&D, 22,000 case studies, used by doctors, health care professionals, practitioners, even hospitals in 130 countries.

We will continue to honor the concept that an Individual’s Health and Well Being is our most valuable asset.

As a former psychotherapist with great disappointment in the results of western mental health practices, it only made sense to look to the East for a more effective system for restoring mental and emotional balance. For more than 30 years, our company (I Ching Systems) has applied the mathematical codes found in the I Ching along with the basic principles of Chinese medicine in the development of a revolutionary emotional balancing system. Our goal was to find a pathway to alleviate emotional imbalances immediately at a structural level without having to sit for weeks and maybe years discussing the possible sources of the problems in therapy, often with limited relief at best.

We are a small group composed of former clinical social workers and educators. Our technology involves various hand-held instruments designed to be used whenever a person feels out of balance. Western mental health focuses on the content of any problem or situation. The idea is that by talking about the content of a particular situation or event, one can find relief and resolution for that content. Yet, very often talking is not enough to resolve mental and emotional distress or change the long-term outcomes for a person’s life. In some ways, psychotherapy is like going to your mechanic in need of brake pads: instead of fixing your brakes, your mechanic sits with your car, says warm supportive things to your car and then you drive away with the same need for brake pads because the problem never got addressed at its source within the structure of the car.

Please know that we are not against psychotherapy. Counseling and therapy can be magical if the therapist and client genuinely like one another. However, in my opinion, some emotional imbalances are very complex and are held in a protective mode, making it difficult to unravel by just talking. If you think about how your computer functions in protective mode, you can see how difficult it can be access the information you need. These survival systems can be traced back to childhood patterns developed during times when the person was under emotional stress. These experiences might include situations in the home with parents who, for whatever reasons, lacked the resources to care for and support their children. Some of these emotional imbalances can also be traced back to exposure to current educational practices that could not be more unnatural for children. Where else in life are children forced to sit still in chairs without being able to use the bathroom when they need to, eat when they are hungry, go outside and play when they feel like it, talk to a friend, say no to a subject that they have no interest in learning, etc.? Where else are people graded using a predetermined bell curve that will only find about 5% of any class worthy of an A?  What children learn in school is to act against themselves and feel safe doing so. And, as a side note, the very best teachers that we have in our schools work hard to protect children from these experiences often at their own expense.

These experiences form electromagnetic circuitry that later become repetitive patterns that keep people locked into the past and unable to move forward in their lives. These circuits are structural in nature and they exist as unresolved mathematical equations in the human consciousness. Talking about the content in this circuitry can be comforting but something much more has to happen to convert the energy trapped in those patterns into something useful and valuable. Again, these are just my personal opinions, but you may notice that what I am saying is observable in your own everyday life.

To solve these structural problems that cause so much emotional imbalance, we looked to the principles of Chinese medicine and the I Ching. Chinese medicine is all about context or structure. It is about viewing the whole person and treating the whole system by supporting everything in the system that is good and life-giving, and working to release anything in the system that is toxic and detrimental. Chinese medicine accounts for how all the parts of each person’s structure are interconnected and how these parts interact with one another.

Chinese medicine recognizes the idea of life force or energy flowing through the consciousness through an organized system of energetic circuitry. And, it recognizes the electromagnetic aspects of the consciousness. These basic principles account, in part, for why acupuncture medicine is so effective. Acupuncture medicine is a system that moves life force or the flow of energy through the electrical system in order to restore balance and harmony. Once in balance, the body has a much greater possibility of repairing itself.

All of our instruments have been built with these principles in mind. Rather than trying to figure out the content of a person’s emotional imbalance, our technology addresses the context or structure in which the imbalance is taking place. Our instruments are designed to address and support the natural flow of life force through a person’s system. At the same time, if used when a person feels out of balance, they are designed to address the energetic circuitry that is causing the imbalances.

To accomplish these goals, we have studied the effects of colors, herbs, minerals, gem stones, metals and so much more, but the real breakthroughs came when we went back to the ancient mathematical codes found in the I Ching, the Chinese Book of Changes. The I Ching is an ancient text that contains sixty-four drawings known as Hexagrams. Each Hexagram is composed of six lines, some lines are solid and some are open. Each Hexagram is different. These Hexagrams with their binary math codes are the basis of the universe. There are 64 Hexagrams and 64 bits or math codes in your computer. Your DNA can be broken down into Hexagrams. Crystals are composed of these math codes and so is the human consciousness.

We can call the solid lines 0’s and they act as closed gates. The broken lines are 1’s and they are open gates. Energy flows through the consciousness tracking these gates. When someone is upset or out of balance mentally and emotionally, there is an open gate that should be closed or vice versa.

Acupuncture medicine is built on a binary math code system. When a person is in pain, there is a closed gate that should be open and there is too much energy built up behind that gate. The acupuncturist is treating the pain by resetting a person’s gates so that energy can once again flow freely through a person’s systems.

The I Ching Systems instruments were designed on this same principle. You simply hold an instrument whenever you feel out of balance. The instrument is designed to address the flow of energy through the entire consciousness, resetting the gates in order to restore equilibrium. It is hard for some people to imagine that such a system exists. We have all been taught to accept stress and emotional struggles as normal and to live with our imbalances as if they were natural. So many people live with and accept painful relationships, jobs they hate, and living situations that do not support their well-being because we have all been taught to adjust into our imbalances rather than to seek resolution. Your mental and emotional health is your most valuable asset. Yet, consider what you do – and do not do – to support and protect that precious asset.

The ancient knowledge and binary math codes of the I Ching may just be the keys to our emotional balance and inner calm. I think we may have found that proverbial peek in the crack of the cosmic egg, and for some people this technology may just change your life.

Welcome To I Ching Tools:      Meet the Founders

Founder I Ching Systems

Who is Jim Standish ?

JIM STANDISH is a Board Certified, Registered Reiki Master/Teacher. His interest in Metaphysics began at an early age as his father, James Sr., was a devout student of Mysticism and active member of several Mystery Schools. In high school he was fascinated with Abe Maslow and the concept of the self actualizing personality. Why was it so many other famous mental health professionals focus on the ills of mankind where Abe focused on understanding what made the best, the best. In the early eighties Jim had the opportunity to meet Mary Miller and experience what is now the I Ching Systems Technology. This began a long journey of self understanding.

“In the early days of the Gentle Wind Project I was what was known as an Instrument Keeper. This simply meant that I was responsible for making an instrument available to anyone in need within my geographical area. Something I still do to this day. In the late 1990’s I read “A Map To God” by Susie Anthony. The book was part of a spiritual awakening that took place for me in the Yucatan. This led me to seek the advice of the ancient Mayan Shaman Community. Going on 18 years now I continue my sojourns to the Yucatan to participate in the Mayan Temascal ritual. 

In the summer 2008 I had the opportunity to be tutored by Judith Struck in the art of Reiki. Her knowledge and skill allowed me to peal back the layers of what is perceived as reality in an extremely profound way. I got to experience first hand just how fine the line really is between the physical world and the non-physical world. From my perspective, ascension IS the process of merging these two worlds.

So I come with open arms, a loving heart, and a ton of knowledge, wanting to share what has been so lovingly bestowed upon me. I bring a simple, down to earth approach to topics that may seem far out or hard to understand. Most of the so called new age stuff is not so new at all. The evidence would suggest that most of it is just long forgotten. I offer you the opportunity to remember. To remember what it is like to breathe consciously, to remember what it is like to drink living water, to remember what it is like to eat living food, to remember what it is like to have loving relationships, to remember what it is like to enjoy perfect health and Inner Balance.

This is not a pill,….it is a process. Let’s work together. Let’s make a map. Let’s start the journey. It begins with YOU.”

Who is Mary Miller?
MARY MILLER, MSW is an internationally known author and speaker.

Mary was born and raised in the Boston area and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Boston State College and went on to obtain a Masters Degree in Social Work (MSW) from the University of Connecticut.

In 1975 she founded an alternative mental health center called the People’s Place and in 1982, opened OffSpring, providing support services to families who had lost young children.

As a result of that work, she authored two books on childbirth and on loss in childbirth under the name of Claudia Panuthos: Transformation Through Birth and Ended Beginnings, both on the market today.

From 1983 to 2006, Mary worked as a researcher and teacher at The Gentle Wind Project, a non-profit company formed to study the human consciousness and to develop instruments for restoring emotional balance. For over 23 years, the Gentle Wind Project’s instruments were helpful to thousands of people as evidenced in their research records.

In 2003, The Gentle Wind Project became the target of an unethical government official, as well as numerous anti-alternative medicine groups who deliberately sought to stop the production of alternative health products.

In 2006 after years of litigation, The Gentle Wind Project closed its doors after helping thousands of people improve the quality of their lives. Mary’s story can be found in her well-documented book, Caught in the Act of Helping.

A week after the government closure, Mary Miller and her associates opened a company now known as I Ching Systems, LLC. Their collective goal and dream was to create a technology that would restore emotional balance, and to break the legacy of suffering often passed on in families from one generation to the next.

Today I Ching Systems is back on the map reaching thousands of people in over 75 countries around the globe.

Mary is now an internationally known Health Freedom Advocate and speaker. She is the author of It’s ALL About Relationships, It’s ALL About SEX and The Mathematics of a Successful Life Volumes I, II and III.
