BA GUA AND FENG SHUI

Each part of your house, as well as different areas in each room, is according to the Ba Gua map as used in Feng Shui, believed to correspond to nine different aspects of life. Each aspect have its own characteristics and elements. It is believed that by correctly harmonizing each of the areas within your home or working place, each area of your life will be harmonized as well.

The nine Feng Shui areas are (in proper relative position):

Wealth Fame Relationships
