Feng Shui can help you move past your current life obstacles or challenges with ease and grace! It works by helping you get clear about what you really want in your life (your intentions) and taking action to shift the energy around the obstacle. It’s a bit like rerouting traffic around an accident scene. The change you make can be very small and simple, like keeping the toilet seat down. It doesn’t cost you anything to do that, yet it will keep your money from escaping down the drain.
I recently heard Doreen Virtue say that no one, not even the well known spiritual teachers including herself, has all their stuff together. Everyone has life issues they are working on. I know I do and I’m willing to bet you do too!
It is the human condition to constantly be seeking more from life, to be continuously launching new rockets of desire. Maybe it’s your health or your finances that are not up to par. Or perhaps you are still looking for your soul mate or want a more fulfilling career. Are there things you want to learn? Do you want a closer relationship with your siblings or parents?
The Feng Shui Bagua is a core element to understanding how Feng Shui works and how to apply it to your home or office. Feng Shui is based on the principle that your environment reflects and affects your life. It is an ancient Chinese art and science thousands of years old which works to arrange your home in a way that is flowing, peaceful and inviting. Feng Shui brings harmony to your home by unblocking stuck energy and is a powerful tool for attracting the people, circumstances and things you want in your life.
The Four Principles of Feng Shui
- Everything is energy ~ Keep only those things in your space that you truly love and/or use. If it doesn’t raise your energy up, let it go!
- Intention is key ~ Focusing on what you really want as you make Feng Shui changes is important. It is not just about moving your stuff. It’s about WHY you are moving or placing something in a specific location.
- Use nature as a model for balance ~ Balance colors, textures, shapes and elements within your home to bring more harmony.
- Your space reflects your life ~ What does your space say about you? Making changes in your space can effect changes in your life, even moving 1 thing that hasn’t been moved in 6 months can create a shift.
I have been studying and practicing Feng Shui for over 10 years and have learned to recognize subtle things in an environment which effect the flow of energy and opportunities. Being intuitive also helps since I not only see, I also feel the energetic stop signs in your space. These are the things that are blocking you from attracting everything you want. Without ever having met the occupant, I can tell many things about them simply by visiting their space. Using a Bagua, you, too, will be able to recognize what is going on in your life and make changes that will shift you back onto the path to your dream life.
What is a Bagua?
The Feng Shui Bagua (pronounced ba gwa) is a mental map of your space. Each section relates to a life area and has an associated color, element, number and body part. Each area or gua relates to a physical area in your home.
What do I do with a Bagua?
Line the Bagua with the arrows on the bottom, as if you were standing outside your home or office looking at the front door. The front door is the main entrance to your home which has the house numbers, not the entrance you may use all the time (like coming through your garage). Your front door will typically either be in Knowledge, Career or Helpful People. Any attached buildings, including garages and screened porches are included in your Bagua.

Once you have oriented the Bagua on your space, you can look at the life areas you want to improve (such as Career, Wealth, Partnership, Health, etc.) and see what’s happening in that area of your home.
- Clear the clutter (including in closets and drawers in that area). For more tips on clearing clutter, check out these blogs:

Do You Need a Clutter Buster?
- Remove dead plants
- Repair or toss anything that is broken
You can place the Bagua over the main level of your home, an individual room, your desk or even your dresser. Remember the main entrance to your home or the room is always at the bottom so your Wealth corner is the back left of the space and Partnership is back right.
Do me a favor, will you? Place the Bagua on your home and comment below about what you found in your Wealth corner that surprised you or that you had forgotten about!
