cleaning the clutter, get rid of things that are broken. Things you want to keep but are broken get those to the shop and get them fixed. Even if you don't have the money to pick it up right now, at least drop it off.
now that you know the baguas(bagwas) walk around your house and take a real hard look...how is your relationship corner..a mess? How is your relationship?
How is the fame? How is the abundance corner?
How is the family section, dusty, messy..how is the family in general?
Just take a look around and 'see'..
I really encourage you to look through feng shui #1 thread and Feng shui #2 thread, now that you know your layout it might start to make more sense.
here are some tricks to how you might want to fix the areas or add to them...this is something I posted in the middle of feng shui 2, but it might be of help now.
The Western Guide to Feng Shui: Room by Room
and here are a few notes to share from it. it is not verbatim so there is no copywrite thingy.. but just to give everyone a good heads up.
#1 wealth and abundance
Water features which has the water moving is encouraged. wind chimes and prayer flags and banners that symbolically call in wealth and prosperity. beloved possessions, and collections that are literally valuable.
Posters paitings and photographs of the things you'd like to buy or experience.
the book says all blues, purples and some reds... I also know gold hightlights like frames etc, are ideal for this corner.
quotes and affimations related to gratitude, welath and prosperity.
You should put up symbols of your accomplishments, such as diplomas, awards and certificates or trophies.
should have pleasant lighting.
artwork that depicts people or animals.
items that are made from animals, leather, faux-fur, feathers, bone and wool.
images of people you respect.
symbols of your goals for the future.
objects or patterns that are triangular or conical in shape.
all subtle and bright and deep shades of red.
sayings quotes and affirmaton relating to integrity and to your fame and reputation.
things to put up...artwork portraying romance and love. No kidding.
pairs of things, such as candlesticks, flowers, books and statues.
mementos from romantic experiences
favorite photographs of you or you and your true love
items in reds, pinks and white.
quotes, sayings and affirmation on love and romance.
#4 Family bagua
Okay, here is where it is a little different than my understanding or my own knowledge. this particular book indicates this quadrant is health & family.
All my other sources say this is family.
Here is where you want your healthy plants.
In this quadrant
fresh flowers is significant, the book indicates, dried and silk flowers with bright appearance.
artwork depicting your concept of ideal health.
artworkdepicting a happy family
garden landscape artwork.
anything made from wood such as tables, chairs, bowls.
Pillars, columns and pedestals.
photos of family and family of friends.
blues and greens.
floral prints and stripes including linens, wallpaper and uphostery.
quotes, sayings and affimations concerning honesty and forgiveness.
#5 Center square Health
This particular book does not work with yellow as the color for the center bagua.
But all my other books do as well as my form and my compass school feng shui practitioners.
So, with that in mind, I would say yellow in this room. Again, like what I indicated up in family health, applies to this room, at least the health part. Healthy plants. Etc. Flowers, things that are bright and cheery. Photos or posters of things that remind you of good health what ever that would be.
I would keep this area clear of clutter!
children and creativity.
art or objects that are especially creative, whimsical, playful, colorful or that stimulate your creative juices.
toys, dolls and stuffed animals that bring you joy.
however, note, if this is the master bedroom you should not overwhelm the room with the toys, just a tidbit here and there. If there is too much child stuff it can bring out the immaturity of the relationship. I had a friend that had too many dolls in her bedroom and her husband treated her like a doll. no kidding.
photographs of children, along with anything children made by hand.
circular and oval shapes.
items made from metal.
items in white and light pastels.
quotes, sayings and affirmations that apply to joy, children and creativity.
This corner is the area of knowledge and self cultivation.
in that area you should put books, tapes or other material that you are currently studying.
art work that portrays mountains or quite places such as meditation or gardens. Pictures or photos of people you consider wise. items in black blue or green.
mediatiitive or inspriation sayings or quotes or affirmations.
great for bookcases and books. Globes, etc.
This is good for water features such as aquarium, fountains etc. however looking out the front door the fountain should be on the left side. Not the right side. (as I recall from my FS consultant)
any artwork or photos depicting water, pools, lakes or streams might be nice near the door.
any image or object that symbolizes your career.
And of course, mirrors, crystal glass things. Items which are black or very dark blue or dark tones.
quotes or sayings, affirmations related to courage and following your path.
again, keep it clutter free. Let the energy flow in. Frequently this is where the front door is located if so, make sure there is nothing blocking the front door entrance. Big heavy piece of furniture. Etc.
Anyway, think of something that would be appropriate for your career.
Helpful people and travels and angels. (I forgot about travel, glad I dusted the book off)
This is the area where you would put religious or spiritual figures you love sunch as angels, saints, goddesses, teacher etc.
objects that have personal spiritual associations, such as rosary crystal or book of prayers photograpshe of people who have been helpful to you such as mentors teachers relatives, art posters and collages of places you'd like to visit or live.
quotes or sayings or affirmations on miracles, heavenly experiences, synchronicity.
This is where I have put photos of dead friends or family members and asked for a little help from the other side.
