As you study and know deeper into feng shui, it becomes increasingly obvious on how important it is to be completely familiar with the various orientations and arrangements of your home. The reason behind is because there are basically so many of the different feng shui formulas and methods that are directly associated with compass directions.
The average amateur feng shui practitioner basically works with the eight compass directions, but those who are more advanced in the learning of feng shui, goes deeper into analyzing the flying star charts of their homes. As we proceed deeper into fengshui, we expand the eight directions into 24 by dividing each main direction into three sub-directions. Conventionally, we refer these 24 sub-directions as the 24 mountains of feng shui.
One of the fundamental of feng shui that you must take note is that, in addition to the eight main directions, feng shui also identifies an additional two directions from which both good and bad luck can originate from the top(sky or heaven) and from the bottom(earth).
There are various feng shui symbols that the Chinese believe will spell protection for the home. These symbols bring wonderful good feng shui to the home. Some of them are celestial guardians like the dragon, the tiger, phoenix, and tortoise. You can witness these feng shui symbols such as the favored guardians like the massive lions or Fu dogs in many corporate building and large mansions and residences in China. One example of a place which uses chinese astrology symbols to protect the home is the Forbidden City in Beijing.
In other areas of China, the dragons Pi Yao or Pi Xie are also extremely popular feng shui symbols to safeguard the home. Feng shui has evolved into the modern world and we can apply feng shui in the current world to safeguard our homes by cleverly applying the exhaustive, or controlling, cycle of the five elements or Wu-Xing.
Bad Luck Can Come From The 10 Major Directions
If you want to safeguard your home or office, it is important to see if it is being afflicted with bad luck from the 10 major directions of North, South, East, West, Southwest, Northwest, Northeast, and Southeast, as well as from the top and bottom.
You must take a serious view of these major 10 directions as each of these directions can carry with it an ill-wind or afflicted chi energy capable of bringing different types of bad luck. If you are not careful and simply ignore these afflicted directions, they can cause loss of life, fatal accidents, and other tragic developments.
Hence, you need to develop what I called the "Feng Shui Eye". This simply means that you will subconsciously be alerted to anything negative that is perhaps the consequences of some new building, structure or development in your immediate environment and area.
Feng Shui Cures and Feng Shui Remedies
By being conscious but not overly conscious to your home environment, you can become familiar with ways of deflecting such bad luck and you will take your practice of feng shui to a new level of effectiveness that will bring you peace, love and harmony to yourself and your loved ones.
One of the most important aspect that you must take note when tackling bad feng shui is that you must pay extra attention to the compass directions and use feng shui cures based on the exhaustive cycle of the five elements to deal with bad luck.
The idea is to exhaust the chi energy of the bad luck that is coming at your house. Basically, the direction from which the bad luck originates will allow you to come out with the feng shui cure that will most effectively curtails its strength.
In my various intensive study of feng shui, I realized that feng shui cures and feng shui remedies will work as long as you apply the cycle of the five elements correctly, and the good news is that you can be as creative as you wish in using this remarkable feng shui principle to change your home and thereby your life.
Bear in mind that you must never allow the talk of so-called "classical feng shui" or "restrictive feng shui" to confuse you.

You then only need to apply your creativity and rational mind to set up the necessary feng shui cure and feng shui remedies to whatever is sending you the bad luck.
