How to Use the Feng Shui Ba-Gua Map in Your Home

Unless they are practitioners of Feng Shui, most people only have a vague idea of what this ancient Chinese philosophy is all about.  They are generally aware that Feng Shui is associated with harmonious decorating, but not the meaning and knowledge of how to implement it.  One of the most important keys to understanding and using Feng Shui to improve the quality of life is Feng Shui Ba-Gua. 

The first thing someone new to the Feng Shui practice needs to understand is what Ba-Gua is.  It is a map of how to break a living space up into nine different categories.  Each category is associated with an important aspect of life and harmony.  Traditionally this map is shown as an octagon with the yin and yang representing the middle section.  For use in a home, the Ba-Gua map can be extended to represent a square.  The idea is to use this map to direct positive chi in each aspect of life for the best results.  The nine aspects used in Feng Shui are career, travel and helpful people, intelligence and skills, children and creativity, health and well being, family, romance and relationships, prosperity, and fame and reputation.  In addition to these aspects Feng Shui Ba-Gua also uses the colors associated with these characteristics to enhance the effects of the map.  Everyone needs a balance of these life aspects for a rewarding existence.

 The Feng Shui Ba-Gua map is used to direct positive energy in all areas of the home or office to promote success and well being in each of the nine aspects.  The use of the significant color in decorating aligned with the proper area of the home is the correct method in creating a balanced, harmonious Feng Shui living space.  If all areas of the map are properly used, the positive energies created are the keys to living a life full of awareness, success, and prosperity.

 To effectively use the Feng Shui Ba-Gua map it is necessary to know which colors and elements correspond with the nine different aspects of life.  Take the fame and reputation aspect first.  This is the area of the home that needs to be improved if you are hoping to improve your reputation in any way.  It may be at work, at home, or in a love relationship.  Focus on the color red to balance this area.  The elements associated with fame and prosperity is wood and fire.  The use of wood in decorating this area may be useful.

 When considering the love and relationship area on the Feng Shui Ba-Gua map, it is useful to use the color pink.  Harmonizing this area will bring improvement and balance to your love relationships.  The elements to use here are earth and fire.

 Similar to love and relationships is family.  Balancing this area will bring harmony to your family.  The colors of choice here are black, blue, and green.  Since water is the main element of family, a small fountain or aquatic artwork would be perfect in this area. 

 Another one of the life areas depicted on the Feng Shui Ba-Gua map is health.  Obviously this area is of vital importance to the success of the other aspects.  With good health, a person can achieve harmony in all other areas.  The colors to use in this area are orange, brown, and yellow.  Donít forget the health elements of earth and fire. 

Children and creativity go hand in hand.  When you are having problems with your children, are hoping to have children, or simply want to stimulate your creativity, this is the area to pay special attention to.  This area should be full of subdued earth tones and yellow.  Those are the colors most useful in this aspect.  The element for children and creativity is metal in the Feng Shui Ba-Gua map.

 Education is very important to lifeís success.  As such the skills and knowledge area of the home should be harmonized appropriately.  The use of the colors black and green are extremely useful in achieving the correct balance in this aspect of the Feng Shui Ba-Gua map.  Earth is the element for skills and knowledge.

 The helpful people and travel area of Feng Shui Ba-Gua is especially useful to pay attention to.  After all who doesnít need useful people in their lives?  The colors to use in this area are black and white.  It is important to add elements of metal and water to this area for the best results. 

In terms of the career area of the home, the colors to use in this area are blue and white.  Balancing this aspect of the Feng Shui Ba-Gua map is helpful in promoting positive energy and harmony into your career.  Be sure to add an element of metal in this area as well. 

Balancing the chi in your home using the nine aspects of the Feng Shui Ba-Gua map is one of the best ways you can be assured of a peaceful, prosperous life.
