How To Create A Bagua Map Of Your Home

February 05, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 224

Creating a Feng Shui Bagua Map of your home can be a little time consuming but is well worth the effort as it enables you to create a guide which you can refer to and follow each time you want to assess, change or support the energy in your home. The Bagua is an important guide that you can use when realigning the energy in your home to bring positive benefit to your life and a little time spent now will provide you with a reference guide that you can use time and time again. In this article I am going to show you the steps you can take to complete a Feng Shui Bagua Map.

There are certain things you will need to complete a Feng Shui Bagua Map of your home. It is useful if you have two different coloured pens, a pencil, a piece of paper a ruler, a protractor and a directional compass. It would also be helpful if your paper was divided in to grids but this is not essential.

Below are the steps you will need to follow to create a Feng Shui Bagua Map of your home:

Step 1. Draw the outline of your house on the piece of paper, making the outline as large as possible so that it almost fills the sheet.

Step 2. In the centre of the piece of paper (outline of your house) draw, using a pencil, a small circle with a radius of about 5cm (2.5 inches).

Step 3. Stand facing the front of your house and use your directional compass to identify north and south. Using a ruler to aid you make small pencil marks on the circumference of your circle to correspond with north and south. Draw a pencil line across the circle to connect these two points.

Step 4. This step is the tricky part. You are going to divide the outline of your home in to the 8 areas of the Bagua. To do this you will need your protractor. Place the protractor so that the base of the protractor is on the north - south line that you have drawn across your circle. Align point north with 0 degree on the protractor. Now taking a pen make marks on the circumference of your circle at 22.5 degrees, 67.5 degrees, 112.5 degrees and 157.5 degrees. Turn the protractor round so that the base line is still on the north - south line but this time 0 degrees is showing at point south. Repeat the steps as above by making marks at 22.5 degrees, 67.5 degrees, 112.5 degrees and 157.5 degrees. You should now have 8 pen marks on the circumference of your circle. Find the centre point of the circle. Placing your ruler on the paper so that it connects one of the marks on the circle with the centre point draw a line in pen. Repeat this for each of the marks. The circle should now be divided in to 8 equal segments (ignore the pencil line). Now in pen again and using your ruler continue each line until it meets the outline of your house. The outline of your house should now be divided in to 8 areas.

Step 5. Label each of the areas with the 8 directions. Using North as the starting point (this is the area which has the north - south line crossing it in the north) work clockwise labelling each area North, North East, East, South East, South, South West, West and North West. Once this is done you can now erase the north - south line as it is no longer needed.

Step 6. Add the five elements on to the Bagua Map. Starting this time in the area in the East and moving clockwise the elements appear in the following order; Wood, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Metal, Water, Earth.

Step 7. Now taking a different coloured pen, draw the rooms of your house in the outline so that you have a plan of the first floor of your house.

Step 8. Repeat Steps 1 - 7 for any additional floors that you have in your home. Congratulations, you now have a Feng Shui Bagua Map of your home. Now you have the Feng Shui Bagua Map you can use it to assess your home to ensure that the energy flows in harmony in each of the different areas.
