The color chart below is a simplified illustration of the Feng Shui Bagua Map (pronounced Ba-gwa). It is the most exciting and functional aspects in Feng Shui used to find out which areas of your home, office or landscape correlates with a particular situation in your life. It comes from the ancient Chinese Book of Changes “The I Ching”. The name Bagua means 8 Trigrams , or areas, each representing the building blocks of life. Once you understand how to use this map, you will be able to quickly evaluate and adjust your environment to maximize greater health and productivity while improving the quality of your life. People have solved many problems in their life through the use of this map.
In the Bagua diagram, there are 8 areas, or “Guas” encircling the center. Each of these areas corresponds to an aspect of your life – career, knowledge and self cultivation, family, friends and health, prosperity, fame, love and relationships, children and creativity, helpful people. The center is a centering and grounding area for all the aspects. Each is associated with colors, elements and specific attributes.
For instance, you may find that your relationship or wealth areas are located in your bathroom, or in a chaotic area of your garage – or missing altogether.
Not all homes fit perfectly into the rectangular Bagua. In a consultation, I will show you how to anchor and enhance all areas; especially those of greatest concern, using the best tools for enhancing the Chi, as well as create affirmations and intentionality for your inner and outer improvements.
Five Elements Map
The art of Feng Shui explores the balance of the five elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water; which are considered to be the building blocks of everything physical on earth. Each of the five elements has a rich spectrum of associations; colors, shapes and qualities. People are most comfortable when all of the elements are represented in one’s home and workplace, as seen in the following before and after pictures.
In a consultation you will learn to define the elements in your space, assess the need for elemental addition and corrections, and receive recommendations for establishing elemental balance. You will learn how to control dominant elements, and nourish those elements that need strengthening, and learn how to create powerful 5 element displays.
