Balancing the Bagua

Balancing the Bagua

Feng Shui Strategies for Success

These strategies will support you in achieving your dreams or in finding your dream.
You will notice that the areas of the Bagua paired below are diagonally opposite each
other this means they are intimately linked, one supports the other. If you need
a Bagua map search google to download one. The Bagua is a map used to layout your
home and each room. To find where these areas are in your space, check out the Bagua

1. Connect with your purpose and your passion

The Career area (water) represents life purpose. And the Fame & Reputation area (fire) is about passion and integrity. Integrity is about living a whole life. Expressing your authentic self the one with dreams and passions and things you are here to do in this lifetime.

Great enhancements to support you in these areas are:
Career - a water fountain, picture of water
Fame & Reputation - candles, anything red, stars

2. Connect with your spirit

Your outer life is a reflection of your inner life. This area is about balancing
outer success with inner peace and being able to enjoy your accomplishments. The
Knowledge & Self Cultivation area of the Bagua is where we learn the lessons we
need to learn to connect with our Spirit. And this is connected with the Love &
Relationship area where we are given gifts of other people in our lives and learn
from them, particularly difficult people. What are the lessons you need to learn?

Knowledge & Self Cultivation - a great place to meditate, have a picture of mountains, symbols of wisdom & knowledge.
Love & Relationships - pairs of things, letters of appreciation, symbols of teamwork

3. Address any negative beliefs and take inspired actions
Your doubts and voices telling you that you can’t do something are what stand in the
way of achieving your dreams. It’s important to address these, and to have your
‘family of choice’ around you to cheer you on. The Health & Family area supports you
in addressing unfinished family issues and creating a healthy and fulfilled life,
living your potential. The Children & Creativity area supports you to take inspired actions. Sometimes we don’t go for our dreams because we don’t know how to do it. We don't have to know how to do it – trust that it will unfold as you ask your higher self and others for the next step. Take bite size pieces keeping your outcome firmly in view.

Health & Family - healthy plants, family pictures, symbols of good health
Children & Creativity - items associated with happy childhood memories, symbols of
creativity such as children’s paintings, creative projects

4. Enlist the support of your environment and helpful people
Live with what you love, and surround yourself with symbols of where you are going,
not where you’ve been. The Wealth & Prosperity area represents abundance of all good things. Prosperity, good feelings, fulfillment, love, success. And every other area of the Bagua affects it. You reflect the energy of your environment so you want that energy to be the highest it can be. No clutter bogging you down, no reminders of things you don’t want in your life. And no-one ever created anything without the help of others. The Helpful People area represents anything which supports you to achieve your dreams – workshops, mentors, books etc.

Wealth & Prosperity: Anything that gives you a feeling of abundance, anything you
would like more of.
Helpful People & Travel: a globe to symbolize travel or global expansion in your
business, pictures of anyone who is helpful to you.

5. Have everything in alignment
The Center is where it all comes together - your dreams, passions, beliefs,
environment, actions and your outcomes. This is when attraction happens effortlessly.

Enhancements for the Center
Pottery and earth tones, meditation area, symbols of harmony and balance.

Dear Jackie,
Thank you very much for your mail and concerning about us. Yes, it is

Feng Shui scents to reduce feelings of confusion and haziness

Try essential oils of Eucalyptus, hyssop, myrrh, marjoram, and fir

All scents are associated with one of feng shui's five elements. The metal element helps clarify mental processes and stimulates the gathering of information and the shaping of ideas. Choosing one of the metal element scents helps you focus on the solutions you may need following a loss and keeps you engaged in mitigating emotional pain.

Suggested Cures: Diffuse eucalyptus oil to help you overcome the inability to move forward and to enhance your ability to relinquish whatever no longer serves you.

Purchase hyssop essential oil and use it on a scent ring - the kind that rests on a lamps light bulb - to dispel gloom and negativity and improve concentration by invigorating your mind and reducing nervous exhaustion.

Choose a toothpaste with the herb myrrh, because it has a powerful effect on the nervous system and reaches into the psyche to help us transcend and transform aspects of material existence.

Create a sachet (or just put a drop of oil on a kleenex) containing marjoram and use it on a desk, under your pillow, or in another area where concentration is required. Marjoram can release tensions and quell worry when you're under pressure (that's why it has been traditionally used at weddings). This herb is effective in reducing insomnia and grief.

Use Idaho Balsam Fir to help you let go of what is old and useless and to restore confidence. Fir also helps reverse short-term memory loss. Finally, it restores a positive self-identify and promotes a vibrant self-image.
