The Bagua map is one of the most important tools in Feng Shui that brings the power of your intention into focus and manifests abundant living. Feng Shui Bagua has survived for thousands of years. It is based on the ‘I Ching‘ or ‘Book of changes’ which is the sourcebook for many of the cultural practices and traditions in China.

What Feng Shui school to choose?

There are different Feng Shui schools. And each of them teaches different ways of placing the Feng Shui Bagua map on the blueprint of your space. For example, one Feng Shui school teaches always to align the Career zone with the main door. Another Feng Shui school uses compass directions for aligning them with the sectors of the house. That is why many people get confused with which way to place the Bagua.

When I just started practicing Feng Shui that was my main confusion and I even stopped my practice for a while because of this. But once I started studying from the world famous Feng Shui masters it was explained that if you want to get the best results you should always use compass directions.

No matter where you are or what you do – South will always be South, as well as North will always be North. The understanding of this fact will help you weave the energy field of your house into the energy field of the Universe. And by doing this you will create harmony!

We can always place a projection of the Feng Shui Bagua on the blueprint of your house. It doesn’t matter where you live – in a royal castle, one bedroom apartment, or a renting room, – you can always get terrific results from using the Feng Shui Bagua for your space!

Are you ready to try? Let’s get it started then!

How to create the Feng Shui Bagua map?

First of all, we need to align all Bagua sectors with compass directions.

Draw or print a blueprint of your house (apartment, room). Using a ruler, divide your blueprint into 3 equal parts – vertically and horizontally. This is how you get the blueprint of your house divided into 9 parts. Meanwhile, if your house has an irregular shape, some Bagua sectors will be missing.

It is believed that it is extremely important to have Southwest and Northwest. These two sectors represent Mother and Father, Feminine and Masculine energies, Yin and Yang.    

Then you should place the Bagua octopus on the blueprint of your house. For doing this you should align the compass directions with your blueprint (you should use the compass for doing this). This is how you determine all the Bagua sectors of your house and what they mean.
