Feng Shui is the ancient art of placement. It incorporates the elements: of wind/air, fire, water, wood and metal. It also considers the four directions (N, S, E, W) in building recommendations.

I found an easy, yet powerful way to improve the Feng Shui in your home, is by overlaying it with what is called a ‘bagua’ (Feng Shui map). The Bagua indicates what each area in your home (or office) represents, and how best to decorate it.

Each area has its own element and direction, and favorable color and decorative accessories. See the Bagua below.

How to Use The Bagua

  1. Draw your home to scale.

  2. Divide each side into 3 equal portions, and draw lines over your home layout to create 9 ‘parts’.

  3. The easiest way to use the bagua is to align your front door with the bottom of the map show here. Or, use a compass and note the directions indicated.

  4. Read the details in the bagua and compare it with your home’s actual situation.

  5. Adjust your home to suit the bagua. Note missing corners and ‘claim’ their energy by hanging windchimnes or geraniums (or similar) outside.

  6. Try it for yourself. You can easily identify what little or big changes you need to create a happier home.

  7. Tip: have little time? Just declutter the area of your life you immediately want to improve upon.

Expect the corresponding changes to manifest in your life!
