In the first lesson we have seen what Feng Shui means and what are the different systems. From this lesson onwards, we will begin to learn some real things, things that you can use and apply to your house.
We know that Feng Shui is about the "space" we live in. No matter which system or school of Feng Shui, the major element must be "directions". Back in elementary schools we learnt that there are 8 directions, namely North, East, South, West, Northeast, Southeast, Southwest and Northwest.
But in Flying Feng Shui, which is the system we will mainly learn in this e-course, there could be 24 directions and each direction could be further divided into 3 sections. You see how complex Feng Shui could be. But in this course and for the time being, let us focus on the 8 directions first. The reason is not that I want to keep the advanced skills to myself, but since we don't need to know that for now. We'll certainly study in detail how the 24 directions could affect us.
The Meaning of 8 Directions
The 8 directions of Feng Shui correspond to the 8 Guas (卦 in Chinese) of the I-Ching (易經 in Chinese), one of the most mysterious books and philosophies in Chinese society. It is believed that everything in the world could be categorized under one of the eight Guas. For example, each person in a family is represented by a Gua. Each part of your body is also represented by an individual Gua.
