The Feng Shui Bagua
The bagua is a powerful feng shui tool that reveals the energetic structure of a house.
The bagua divides your space into nine equal areas. Bagua literally means 'eight areas' in Chinese, there are eight areas surrounding the center, which is the ninth area.
All nine areas are connected with different aspects of life, these are processes as they manifest themselves in everyone's life, through presence or absence.
By understanding your home you can influence the desired areas of life and thus your individual needs and overall well-being. Harmonize the energy in your home and in your life!
The grid is placed over a house to analyze the energetic structure, but can also shrink to be used over a room or your office desk, or expand and be laid over your entire property, an apartment building or a city. The possibilities are endless. It is very important though that the bagua always remains in an equally proportioned three-by-three grid.
The 9 life aspects of the bagua
1. career; work, path in life, sexuality and emotions
2. relation; love, partner relationships, self-care, nutrition and education
3. family; family, roots, new beginnings and growth
4. wealth; prosperity, abundance and connection
5. center; well-being, health and authority
6. helpful friends; support, spirituality and travel
7. children; joy, playfulness and creativity in thinking
8. knowledge; wisdom, self-cultivation and intuition
9. fame; reputation, visibility, passion, creativity, soul and transformation
How can I use the bagua in my home?
Use an accurately scaled floor plan of your home.
Rotate your floor plan and align the bottom of your front door wall with the bagua. Your front door is therefore in the knowledge, career or helpful people area.
Determine which area of the bagua your spaces are in.
A bagua analysis is made accurate to the centimeter. So if you want to know exactly how your house relates to the bagua, ask a feng shui professional for help.
