Transcript:How to Define Your Bagua

The bagua is the feng shui energy map of your space. Translated it means 8 areas.  Each area is connected to a specific area of your life; by changing specific areas of your house; you can literally change your life.  

Bagua Reading

You will need: a full circle protractor,  a ruler, your floor plan & something to write with

You must first determine a reading of your main door with a compass. Let’s say the results of your north facing house is 352.5 . When you find the center of your home take a protractor and align it with the reading of your main door.

We mark North which is 337.5 to 22.5; The Northeast is 22.5 to 67.5; East is from 67.5 to 112.5; The Southeast area is from 112.5 to 157.5; South is from 157.5 to 202.5; Southwest is from 202.5 to 247.5; West is from 247.5 to 292.5; Northwest is from 292.5 to 337.5.

Connect the Lines

Now connect the lines through the center and you will see how easily we defined the bagua, or the energy map of this specific space. 

After you label each direction on your bagua you are now ready to work with your environment to create harmonious feng shui.
