The Bagua Map Explained

The bagua map we have created above uses the format that has been utilized over many centuries but is now adapted to modern living. Each of the 9 squares (Guas) on the map represents a life area of importance and where its place is within your home. This map can be used as a guide for your home as a whole and/or separately in different rooms within your home.

There are two ways to apply this map in your home:

  • Traditional Method – Using a compass, stand in the center of your house or room and correlate your findings to the information you see around the edge of our map. 
  • Western Method – The traditional method has had to be adapted due to factors such as apartment living and more changes that come with living in the modern world. If you prefer to use the Western Method then you can simply use the map according to where your main entrance is. For example, the wealth corner is shown as the back left corner of any room, building, or home when standing at the entryway facing in.

Now lets go over the impact and importance of each of these guas to give you a bit more information as to how you can implement feng shui in your home
