Feng Shui Basics: Chi, Elements & Feng Shui Bagua

Get to know Feng Shui basics and the Feng Shui Bagua map as we introduce the most importants essentials and basics of Feng Shui.

Today I feel I need to try something new.  And looking about my room as I type this I’m made aware that my new activity should involve cleaning, design and organisation, as the space around me looks as though it were hit by a bomb. My new activity should also involve a lot of relaxation (lordie I could use some of that!) and productivity. So, what better subject to look at today than Feng Shui basics and the Feng Shui Bagua map.

 

Feng Shui Basics: Chi, Elements & Feng Shui Bagua Map

Feng Shui basics are all about energy and flow, about balance and harmony in the home, office or other area. Feng Shui’s central concept is the idea of balancing “chi,” the world’s universal energy. Feng Shui is about designing our living spaces to maximise the flow of this central, universal energy, which is said to help us relax and to live health, productive lives.

Literally translated as “Wind” and “Water”, Feng Shui works on the assumption that, like its two titular elemental forces, all of life is driven by energy that flows and which can be blocked or allowed to flow more freely dependant on the layout and design of objects, buildings and space. In Feng Shui, people are seen as being connected to the spaces they live in, and so by creating peace, flow and harmony in our living space we will achieve those things in ourselves too.

 

This time around, we’ll be looking at the basics of Feng Shui and the Feng Shui Bagua map to get a good understanding of how Feng Shui works before we move on to Feng Shui for home and work spaces.

Chi

 

We’ve already mentioned Chi briefly above, stating that it is the universal energy. The energy of chi is constantly moving and changing life forces around us. Chi enters a room through the door and leaves out through the window and can accumulate in the objects around us. The ideally designed room will allow chi to flow throughout it and will be free of areas that block chi.

The Five Elements 

Feng Shui basics are all about creating harmony by balancing the five elements, Fire, Wood, Earth, Water and Metal, each of which is distinguished by a set of attributes, shape and colours, as can be seen in the diagrams below.

 Feng Shui Bagua Map

Feng Shui uses a chart called the Feng Shui Bagua map to chart the areas of your home or office and determine where objects and colours representing the five elements above should be placed. The traditional Feng Shui Bagua is an octagon, but modern approaches use a grid-shaped chart to map nine areas of your life:

  1. Power/Wealth/Abundance
  2. Fame/Future/Reputation
  3. Love/Relationships/Marriage
  4. Creativity/Children/Legacy
  5. Compassion/Travel/Helpful People
  6. Self/Career/Work
  7. Knowledge/Wisdom/Harmony
  8. Family/Health/Community
  9. Well-Being/Balance

 

 

 

The Basic Tools of Feng Shui

So, we’ve covered the core principles of Feng Shui basics. Now, let’s take a look at some of the basic tools and some of the things we can do to begin to increase the flow of Chi in our environments and create a harmony conducive to relaxation, positivity and productivity.

 

  • Lighting is the easiest way to quickly increase the flow of chi, especially full-spectrum light bulbs that simulate natural light. Fireplaces are also a source of light.
  • Art (painting, sculpture, or textile) can increase Chi. The selection and placement of art depends on the area of the bagua you need to activate. Art should reflect positive images and feelings.
  • Growing Things like flowers connects us to nature and can be chosen with the bagua in mind by selecting shapes and colours from the bagua to activate the areas of the bagua needed.
  • Water Features such as fountains and aquariums stimulate the movement of chi in and around your home or business.
  • Wind Sensitive Objects (wind chimes, mobiles, whirligigs, banners, flags) attract the chi into your environment.
  • Mirrors & Crystals can be used when there are structural flaws or where there is no space for any other “cure.”
  • Color in Feng Shui is primarily used to represent and balance the Five Elements. Colour adds emotional, physiological, and cultural content to our lives.
  • Sound is used to connect us to others in our environment. Music is a powerful way to uplift the chi in any environment and can help with stressful home or office situations.

 

So, there we have it, a look at the most important Feng Shui basics and an introduction to the Feng Shui Bagua map.
