LIVING HARMONY Lucky Cat Feng Shui: Bagua Tutorial

Each area covers various aspects of your life.  The colors noted are the appropriate colors for each area, meaning they help create or support that area.  Following is a complete list of areas and colors and numbers including destructive colors.  A simple rule is that opposites destruct, while adjoining areas create.  So for the Family area you would NOT want to feature white as your main color – but blue or purple would be just fine. 


The grid applies to a room by placing the grid along the wall with the entrance door – the door could fall into any area along the Skills/Career/Helpful People areas…but must fall into one of those areas.  At a desk, the side the person sit’s at is the side that should fit into those sections as well.  Generally the person sits in the Career section.

Each area of your home, office whether overall or as applied to individual rooms relates to a specific area of your life.  With specific intention and consideration, placement of furniture and decorative items in these areas can serve to support your goals and create the most harmonious and successful environment!  


*Helpful People/Travel – This area is designated for those individuals that you need assistance from, either on an on-going basis or in the near future.  Examples of items that work well in this area are pictures of friends and family, and of course pictures of beautiful exotic locations.  A simple feng shui practice for bringing in the aid of helpful people is create a list of the people you need or desire to help you and place their names in a silver container – be careful to list intentions in the present tense – so for example don’t list “my future spouse”.  This area also supports travel – whether business or pleasure, a trip you plan or memories from the past.  Place items relating to the type of travel you wish to achieve in this area.


*Career – The central space on the bottom of the bagau layout is assigned focus on career and life path issues.  Often the front entrance, this is a terrific area to house any articles relating to your career - sometimes there is not enough room to place large items, so you can easily just place a black briefcase by the door out of the way of traffic.  Again, you know it's the Living Harmony Lucky Cat method of Feng Shui, but others will just think it's easy storage. 


*Skills/Knowledge – Focusing on skills, information, abilities and especially the ability to make sound judgments which results in wisdom, this area of any room or facility is the perfect spot for bookcases, industry periodicals or any other materials that hold required knowledge – either that which has already been learned or those subjects on which the individual needs enlightenment.   


*Family/New Beginnings – Designated as the gua pertaining to the family unit and new beginnings, this area is fabulous for photos and mementos from friends and family, either those currently in your life or that which you wish to attract.  

*Prosperity – Any items that represent to you abundance will enhance this area.  Abundance does not just pertain to financial or material items, but includes such varied concepts as health, love, time, creativity – anything you wish more of, can be heightened and achieved through conscious intention in this area.  Symbolism is sometimes an individual perception, and what conveys prosperity and abundance to one need not have significant meaning to others.   

*Fame – this area is perfect for diplomas, framed copies of your license(s), awards, your personal PR portfolio and any other items that represent to you and others that which you wish to embody professionally.  In the home environment, one must be careful to include all aspects of the desired reputation – so enhance this area according to all your life goals, rather than just professional ones.    

*Relationships – all of feng shui addresses harmony and balance.  How the items of furniture and decorations relate to each other will directly impact all the relationships in your life and in the relationship section these interactions have an even deeper focus.  Chairs and other items positioned in groupings of two suggest a connected and balanced relationship.  

*Creativity – the section designated for creativity is also noted as the children gua, and not just our human offspring:  all our creations are our children.  In business, our projects and our business convey the same meaning.  This area is perfect for the display and working on projects, drawing in and supporting the creative abilities.  In our home environment, this area can be host to our hobbies, interests as well as the little people in our lives.  

*Health/Other – the central section focuses on health, well-being and all other situations not addressed in the various guas.  This is the section that supports all other sections, either by holding the unit together or by providing some specific support to one or another area.  It is always important that all equipment and furnishings are in good working order, and especially true in the center of the space.   This area also relates to our spirit, our soul…it is the area that connects to all other areas and centers our world.

The bagua can be extended into a square so you can better apply it to your environment.  Simply set up a 9 box grid and install the corresponding gua names to each section, then overlay your room or building layout over it to get a better idea of how the bagua applies to your environment.
