Did you know there’s a place in your home related to your health? Finances? Relationships? Even your reputation? Every aspect of your life is directly related to a specific place in your home. According to the Feng Shui Bagua, your life reflects your home.
Our best efforts at moving forward in life can thwarted by our living space. This is because the space can hold us back in an old pattern we’re trying to change.
For example, if your deepest longing is to find your life partner, you would want to check the marriage and relationship area of your home. Because if the shape of your house indicates you are missing the area related to marriage, then the lack of marriage chi (energy) will interfere with your intention to be in a fulfilling relationship. Adjusting the Feng Shui of your living space will support you in moving towards your goal to be in a relationship.
The bagua is a map that shows how our physical environment corresponds with different aspects of our life. Career, Self Knowledge, Family, Wealth, Reputation, Marriage & Relationship, Creative Projects, Helpful People and Health. The bagua can be applied to a building, site or room to reveal the areas of strength and weakness of the space. Adjusting the chi can correct the imbalances in the space and strengthen the corresponding life area. Bathrooms, fireplaces, and clutter in certain areas of the bagua can have a negative effect. Would you want to keep your clutter if it was in your Wealth Area inhibiting your prosperity?
If your house is an irregular shape, the bagua map may reveal that that your house is missing an area of the bagua.
This was the case in the earlier example about marriage and relationship. It could also be that an area of the bagua is enhanced. Missing any area of the bagua will correspond with having a lack of vitality and support in the corresponding area of your life. This is because the chi is missing in the home. The good news is that a missing area of the bagua can be corrected without having to remodel, and any area of the bagua can be enhanced to bring extra vitality and support to the corresponding area of your life.

A client of mine discovered that the side of her hundred-year-old house was rotten and growing mushrooms. This corner happened to be her wealth area.
As her partner was replacing the siding and a laying the new foundation, my clients ex-husband returned her call about some financial matters. He agreed to pay the back payments he owed her. He said he was also willing to create a much larger retirement account for her than she had originally requested. This was after many years of saying no. Her ex-husband also agreed to make a loan to her mother, thus taking financial pressure of my client. Sometimes good Feng Shui is as easy as taking good care of your house and cleaning things up!
