The I-Ching is one of the oldest classic Chinese texts. Open your mind and spirit to the ancient mysteries of the I-Ching.
The study of Feng Shui rests upon many foundations, but the most significant of them all is the I Ching (Book of Changes). The origin of the I Ching dates back thousands of years with Fu Hsi, a legendary emperor who formulated a language to represent Yin and Yang.
A solid line represents Yang and a broken line represents Yin.
In the beginning, there was one universal energy. One gave birth to two – male and female – Yang and Yin.
Two gave birth to four – the four directions, the four seasons – together with the centre, these made up the Five Elements.
Four gave birth to eight – representing the 8 trigrams.
When the Yang and Yin lines are arranged in sets of threes, there are only 8 possible combinations. An arrangement of 3 lines in known as a trigram (gua). Hence the popular term Ba Gua – meaning 8 trigrams. Fu Hsi gave each trigram a name related with an aspect of Nature. Each trigram can be further classified as Yang or Yin (male or female), family member, element and aspect of life.
