I am confused!! How do I apply the bagua map?

I started to apply some things in my home. My front door is on the southwest side. I am totally confused on how to apply the bagua map. I need a lot of help in some areas!!!!


The easiest way to apply the feng shui bagua map is to forget about which direction your front door is. Quite simply, align your front door with the bottom of the bagua map.  If you haven’t already, read how to align the bagua diagram.

I think the thing that mystifies people the most is when the door doesn’t align with the bottom. Even if the door is set back -- like Dorel’s floorplan -- you still want the front door parallel with the bottom of the bagua map.

If you feel like you need help in a lot of areas, it’s time to assess your life. By taking this simple questionnaire, you can begin to see what areas you need to address first. Ideally, you don’t want to change everything at once as it is too difficult to keep track of what works and what doesn’t. Start slowly. Make sure to read the 5 basic feng shui rules to get started.

I wish you much luck and good fortune on your journey!

Be well,

"In our deepest moments of struggle, frustration, fear, and confusion, we are being called upon to reach in and touch our hearts. Then, we will know what to do, what to say, how to be. What is right is always in our deepest heart of hearts. It is from the deepest part of our hearts that we are capable of reaching out and touching another human being. It is, after all, one heart touching another heart."
