An 8-Point Guide To A Feng Shui House

In Feng Shui, each spot in your home is associated with a different aspect of your life. Here’s a beginner’s guide to cultivating positive energy in every zone using a Bagua Map.

Stand inside your home with your back to the front door. Look forward. The part of your home in the far left corner is the money sector.

The far right corner is the relationship zone. Got it? You work the magic by placing certain items in certain zones; some have symbolic power, others a literal connection to the area.

The eight-point system is intricate and layered.

Wealth

Place fresh flowers or a jade plant here. This is also a good spot in which to keep cash or a valuable treasure.

Reputation/Fame

The place to display awards, accolades, and good-luck symbols, like four-leaf clovers.

Love/Marriage

Bring in pairs (especially potent are lovebirds, butterflies, and cranes) or an image of two trees intertwined. If your living room is in this area, place a love seat, a pair of pillows, or two matching chairs here.

Family

The Family area of your home is the left-center part of your floor plan after you’ve walked through your front door.

This area represents your family’s harmony and happiness. If you Feng Shui this part of your house, you will promote good relationships with your current family members, your ancestry, lineage, and even a global sense of family.

Health

The Health section of Bagua in Feng Shui is in the center of the Bagua. You can see that the Health Gua touches all the areas of the Bagua, just as your health touches all aspects of your life.

When you Feng Shui any section of your home, you must have good health in mind.

Only in good health are you able to enjoy your relationships with friends and loved ones, travel to your dream destinations, be creative, have children, enjoy your wealth… you get the picture.

Children/Creativity

Ideal for a bulletin board or a craft or sewing zone. If you don’t have kids, use this spot to indulge your inner child with bold wallpaper or chalkboard paint.

Helpful People/Travel

Nice for funny, playful photos, artwork made by pals, or a map that reminds you of a favorite trip (or a journey that you hope to take).

Career

This area should be as well lit as possible. If it falls around your entry, hang a bright pendant or chandelier. Put something here that relates to your passion and/or your job. A scientist might want a quotation from Einstein. If you play music, keep your instrument here.

Knowledge

Create a reading nook or an intimate spot for conversation. If you meditate, this is a great place for it.

Conclusion

*This map applies not only to each floor of your home but also to each room. Stand in the doorway to orient yourself and get a handle on which corner is which. If your room has more than one doorway, use its main entrance.
