If you’ve found yourself scratching your head while attempting feng shui bagua mapping, you’re not alone. Staring at the different colored squares often associated with a bagua map can seem a little confusing at first glance. In this article we’re going to break down all nine of the sections so that you can form a better understanding of what it all means. Before we dive into the details of applying the feng shui map to your home, let’s take a look at how you can start the mapping process.
Mapping Your Home with feng shui bagua
The very first thing you have to do with feng shui bagua mapping is draw a plan of your home. It is possible to do this individually for each room or for your garden but the best place to start is always the layout of your home’s ground floor. You don’t have to be an artist or worry about scales; you just need a rough estimation of what your house looks like. The next step is easy: simply divide this plan into 9 equally sized rectangles. The bottom of your grid should represent the location of the front entrance.
Lower Right Section
So we can now take a look at what you should find in each section. In the bottom right corner is the helpful people and travel area. The function of this area is to provide you with protection while travelling. It doesn’t matter if you’re walking to the shop or jetting off around the world, the same protection will apply to you. By focusing your energy on this part of your house, you’ll attract teachers and mentors into your life who can offer valuable life lessons.
Lower Middle Section
As we reach the lower middle section of the bagua feng shui map, we find that this area promotes success within your career or work. By achieving balance and supporting the increase of positive energy within this area of your home you can improve your chances of getting a promotion, feel a sense of stability when switching careers, and can feel a deeper sense of clarity when trying to achieve your goals.
Lower Left Section
The final part of the lower section of the feng shui bagua map relates to your strive for knowledge and personal growth. If you’re every struggling to study or are having problems in school, college or university then you should examine the energy balance within this section of your home. Ba gua mapping helps you identify the problematic area but it’s up to you to resolve it. This section also helps to encourage personal and spiritual growth. For those on a religious path, the section is incredibly important and failing to maintain high energy levels will put your path in jeopardy.
Middle Left Section
The space immediately above the previous section relates directly to family and relationships. This can also include friendships and professional relationships. In simple terms, if you’re encountering any form of relationship problem then focus your attention on this part of your home. This is particularly true if you’re experiencing isolation through a lack of healthy relationships. Take some time to clean this space, remove negative energy and regain a sense of balance.
The central section of your home is arguably the most important. This is the hub through which all other energies flow. As well as promoting a general sense of well-being, this area covers your spiritual and physical health. If you find yourself feeling drained, discouraged, lethargic, depressed or anxious, then this would be the area to focus your attention on. Even if you just feel out of balance and constantly searching for harmony, then you can assume that something in the center of your home is creating negative energy.
Middle Right Section
The sixth area we’ll examine while feng shui bagua mapping is the section to the right of the center. If you have children, particularly if they reside within this domicile, then this section is vitally important as it relates to children and their communication and creativity. This area may need its energy balanced if you find that your children are getting sick, struggling with school, getting into fights or acting in an unusual manner. Balancing this area can help promote a brighter future for your children.
Upper Right Section
Are you having marital problems? Has your self-esteem taken a dive? Are romantic relationships proving challenging for you? It could be that the upper right section of your home is being neglected and the negative energy is beginning to take a toll on your life. Finding balance in your love life starts with creating balance in your home.
Upper Middle Section
If you have a job that requires you to maintain a certain reputation then this area is of particular importance to you as it relates to how others view you. This doesn’t so much apply to friends and family but rather the larger social circles. If you’re a politician (for example) then this could refer to members of the public. If you’re attempting to establish some sort of reputation then creating balance in this area is where you should begin.
Upper Left Section
The final area of the feng shui bagua map is in the upper left. This is one are that typically appeals to all of us: financial prosperity. If you’re struggling with money, are attempting to take out a loan, or are hoping for a pay raise at work then this area should be your focus. Finding harmony and balance in this part of your house can help generate cash flow and ultimately lead to a more financially stable situation.
However, just because this area is balanced or radiating in positive energy doesn’t mean you should take any financial risks. Feng shui bagua mapping relates to subtle energy diversions rather than financial security while gambling.
