For thousands of years, Chinese have studied what happens to energy as it flows through space. They discovered a predictable pattern resulting in the feng shui bagua map. The bagua chart is broken down into nine areas representing distinct life situations (outlined below).
Working with the bagua map is one of the most powerful ways to create positive changes in your life.
As I have stated elsewhere, it is my belief that feng shui works because it both enhances the beneficial energy in your home AND sets a specific intention in place establishing a positive vibration. Working with the bagua map to bring feng shui in the home is like having a playdate between the intellectual and intuitive side of the brain. It focuses your intention to produce astonishing results fast!
The feng shui bagua map allows you to focus your intention and enhance the positive energy for a specific area of your life.
The best way to use the feng shui bagua map is as follows:
Take stock of your life and set goals. The very first thing I do during a consultation is to have my client fill out a life assessment worksheet . This allows me to decide which areas to focus on first.
Before you know what you want to achieve, you must make an honest assessment of your life. What areas of your life aren't working?
Start making adjustments slowly. Based on your life-assessment worksheet, decide which area or areas to focus on first. Be sure the area is clean and free from clutter. Make feng shui adjustments and add enhancements slowly so you can identify what works and what doesn’t.
