The chart below is a simplified illustration of a bagua (pronounced Ba-gwa). It is used in feng shui to find out which part of your home or office correlates with a particular situation in your life. Once you understand how to use this "map of feng shui," you will be able to quickly evaluate and adjust your environment to maximize greater health and productivity while improving your quality of life.

In the bagua diagram below, there are eight areas, or "guas," encircling the center. As shown, these nine different zones correspond to nine major areas of life - prosperity, fame and reputation, relationships, family, health, creativity and children, skills and knowledge, career, and helpful people.

To overlay the bagua on your home or work floor plan, stand at the threshold of the door facing in and hold the diagram so that the blue, black, and gray guas are closest to you. Pretend you can draw a line straight across the front of the home where the door is: that would be the line at the bottom of this color chart.
