Specific Information About Each Area
- Career Area
This area of your home or room relates to your path in life, your career, your creativity or whatever you spend most of your time doing. If your front door is situated centrally, this area of your life will correspond with your front entrance. If your career area is missing - maybe your house is shaped in such a way that the entrance is on the left-hand side and the 'career' section is missing - you may find it difficult to make prgress in your profession. To remedy this, put large mirrors, fresh growing plants and hanging crystals in this area.
- Helpful People
The 'helpful people' or 'angels' area of your home is a wonderful place to put a home altar. I love my altar and use it to burn incense, light candles and keep objects that are meaningful to me. If you are working on a particular project and need some help from others, try putting an extra big mirror or a crystal in the 'helpful people' area.
If your 'helpful people' area, according to the feng shui bagua, is blocked or missing you will feel unsupported and alone.
- Creativity And Children
This area relates to children, projects or anything that you have created. If you are trying to conceive a child, it is suggested that you move your bed to the 'children' area of your house, or to the 'children' area of your bedroom. If you are working on a project, place a bunch of flowers or blossoms in this position. You can also use a painting of flowers.
- Love And Marriage
This area of the feng shui bagua concerns marriage, friendships, and the way we relate to people in general. It is a good idea to place paired o groups of objects in this area. Also use happy photos of people that you love. Don't put your television set in this position. A house with a missing relationship corner can sometimes mean difficult relationships in the home. Remedy this by placing mirrors in this corner to draw energy into that area.
Inspiration, self-expression and what you are known for, are represented in this area. This spot is often the focal point of a house or room and you need to be aware of what is displayed there. If you put a clock there, you may have a reputation of being early or late. If your toilet is in this area according to your feng shui bagua, then your reputation may be in danger of going down the drain.
This area concerns wealth, prosperity, good fortune, blessings and abundance of all kinds, not just money. This is a good place to put an aquarium, ornaments or solid objects of good quality. It is a very inauspicious place to situate your toilet... symbolically you will be flushing away your wealth.
- Health And Family
The family area concerns parents, ancestors, heritage and any influences from the past. it is a good place to put family photos, certificates and trophies to ensure that the energy surrounding family ties is flowing freely. The 'health' aspect of this area on your feng shui bagua concerns the vitality of the occupants. if this area of your home or bedroom has plants that are dying, or is dark and dirty or cluttered, then health problems can ensue.
- Knowledge And Self-Cultivation
This area of your living space represents introspection, meditation, inner guidance and studying. It is a good place to have your library or study. If you want to improve your intuition and guidance from your higher Self, hang a crystal in the window of this area in the house.
The center of your home represents its connection to the life-supporting energy of the earth and sky. Find the center of your home and place a crystal in the roof directly in the middle (if you can). Put a special rock or beautiful stone in the center point corresponding to your feng shui bagua to represent connection to earth. Stuck energy around the center of your home can make you feel ungrounded.
