Feng Shui and the Bagua map can help guide your decorating decisions. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art used to detect and use the energy in the physical world, also known as Chi, that affects your emotional state. Feng Shui decorating involves the careful use of color and the planned placement of objects and furniture to create an atmosphere of comfort. You can use Feng Shui to decorate your home or office. Ultimately, Feng Shui can help you decorate a space that will be aesthetically pleasing and give you a sense of peace of mind.
When using Feng Shui to decorate your room, you will need a special Feng Shui tool called a Bagua map. The Bagua map is an eight-section grid you will use as a decorating guide. Each section of the grid on the Bagua deals with a certain aspect of your life. For example, the northwest corner of the Bagua controls your wealth and prosperity. As you Feng Shui decorate, you will use the Bagua map to help you place furniture and objects.
To use the Bagua map in Feng Shui decorating, place it over a layout your room. Note which section of the room fall into certain areas of the Bagua. Determine which areas of the Bagua map you would like to enhance in your life. Choose personal and decorative objects that represent those areas you’d like to enhance. Take those objects and place them around the room according to the Bagua. For example, if you would like to make more money, you can designate a bowl of decorative coins to symbolize an abundance of wealth. Place the bowl of decorative coins on top of a side table in the northwestern that controls your wealth and prosperity energy. According to the principals of Feng Shui and Bagua decorating, the coins will help shape your environment to provide you with more wealth.
Using Feng Shui and the Bagua when decorating your home can bring you peace, happiness and maybe even good fortune.
