The bagua map is a diagnostic tool in my Pyramid School Feng Shui practice that helps to identify weaknesses in a space and explains how the correlate to one's life.
The bagua map is a grid of nine areas that can be laid upon the floor plan of a room or home that explains which areas of a home influence specific areas of your life.
For example, the far right from the entrance door of a home or a room is an area focused on love & relationships.
If this area is empty (or, say, used as a mess room), your love life may reflect the same disarray!
We could discuss the bagua for hours and have a great time, but for today, the important lessons are that the bagua is a diagnostic tool (not your destiny!).
The areas that comprise the bagua can shine a light on under-valued aspects of your life and the bagua can help you design your dream life!
A little while back I got a call from a fabulous designer on the East Coast asking for my help to coach him in his question to be extraordinary.
Instantly I was interested.
He had a system worked out based on the feng shui bagua map that encompassed engaging a coach in nine separate areas of his life that correlated with the nine areas of this feng shui tool. I was honored, flattered and agreed to coach him in one “area” of the bagua map.
I also sat down and looked at his system and realized the genius that could be extracted from using the bagua as a “life coaching” tool.
I experimented with y friend’s “bagua” formula. What I learned was astonishing! While I could never ease myself with nine different life coaches at once, I actually needed help with aspects of my life I’d never seen before looking at the map in this way.
If I set a very modest but actionable goal or intention for each of the nine areas of my life that correlated to the bagua, would this make a difference? YES!!! A small shift in areas that seemed unrelated to my “goals” actually moved me forward in every sense and helped me to live a more balanced and empowered life
The holistic life-design exercise I have enjoyed for the last few months is my big recommendation to you as you reflect on 2012 and make plans for 2013.
