Whimsical Feng Shui _Bagua MapThere are times in our lives that we feel stuck, need a spark of something new, and need more balance. With the world changing so fast today, are we flowing with life like we feel we should?
Our homes, offices, desks, and vehicles represent us as individuals and our relationships with the world around us.  One of the most important things to be conscious of and not have too much of is clutter. Clutter is stagnant energy, and we all know how we feel when we clean up a pile of dirty clothes, bills, dishes.   Our homes should bring us joy and happiness, and we can rest and go inward when we are in balance with our inner and external home.  Home is where the heart is.
Feng shui helps us balance our homes, desks and offices, and gets the energy flowing so more love and happiness can fill our hearts. As we fill our inner hearts, the love we radiant becomes magnified!  Can you think of a person that is so loving that their love radiates out to others?  How do they fit and feel in their home?  Most likely they have a clutter clear home and when you walk into it you feel at peace, a calming feeling.
Areas of your home heart are part of a Bagua map. The Bagua map consists of 9 “guas” including; Career, Knowledge & Self-Cultivation, Health & Family, Wealth & Prosperity, Fame & Reputation, Love, Creativity, Helpful People & Travel, and the center being Harmony.
Each area of your home represents a life aspect  and feng shui enhancements can bring more energy and balance to each one of those areas.  One of the ways we enhance or improve an area is to use the feng shui “5 element theory” to balance the elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Some homes might be missing an area, so enhancements are done to bring that area alive.

Feng shui is perfect for everyone!  The times it’s needed most are:

  • Looking for a new career
  • You’ve just went through a major life change / divorce
  • Sleeping Issues
  • Selling a home
  • Moving into a new home or business location
  • Better health
  • More peace with your family
  • Prosperity!  
  • Love & Marriage 
  • Future  travel
  • Building a new business or thinking about it
  • Expanding your inner knowledge / going back to school
  • Children
  • Creativity
