In Feng Shui, the area of the Bagua related to personal power is the Fame and Reputation area of the home. Standing at the front door looking in, this is located directly opposite the front of the house, in the middle of the space. Focusing on the Feng Shui in this part of your home is important for personal power, courage, and reputation.
See below for some of my favorite ideas to activate the Fame and Reputation space:
- Activate the fame area with red, pointy (or triangular) objects as these represent fire. This is a great place for a fireplace or candles. Perhaps you’d like to try some red throw pillows or modern artwork depicting angular shapes.
- Use this area to brag about yourself! Place awards, degrees, accolades or anything related to your personal success. Write down an affirmation related to your success, put it in a red envelope and place it in this area. It can be hidden behind wall art if you’d like.
- Use wood to activate the fire in this area. This can be wood furniture or rectangular shaped objects. You can also use blues and greens in this area if red is not your preference, as blue and green are the colors related to the wood element.
- Cures that will activate the chi in the Fame and Reputation area are crystals, tall woody plants, clocks, bamboo chimes and up lighting. Avoid water fountains in this area (unless the flying stars dictate otherwise) as water extinguishes fire.
Beauty. Balance. Blessings.
