What is the Bagua?
One of the main tools used in Feng Shui is the Bagua which is an energetic grid or map that is placed over your home or individual room. It is used to determine how energy flows within a defined space. Use the Bagua to enhance your living or working space to help you have a happier, healthier and more prosperous life. (The original Bagua was an octagon shape. I have turned it into 9 squares for ease of use.)
Using the Bagua
- Print a copy of the Bagua.
- Stand in the front door of your house or in the doorway to the room and place the lower end of the Bagua at your belly. The doorway must line up with either the knowledge, career or helpful people sector.
- Once you have figured out where the different zones fall in your home or room using the Bagua, use the Bagua Cures chart (below) to figure out how you can simply enhance specific areas.
You can use any of the colours or objects suggested. You don't need to use them all. Remember, whatever you use has to make you feel good.
