A bagua splits a floor plan into nine equal square or rectangular areas. You may scroll down to see a graphic that I have included in this page.
Some of these life areas may be outside of your floor plan if your floor plan is irregular) not square or rectangular. It may also happen that a life area or two are right where you have a bathroom, a laundry room or a staircase. In cases like these, you may need professional help.

What is the Feng Shui Bagua Map?
The Feng Shui Bagua Map is a chart that places the Feng Shui 9 Life Areas in a tic-tac-toe pattern, so that this “map” can then be applied over the floor plan of a home or business. The Feng Bagua Map shows the location for each life area on the floor plan.
Below you can see the Feng Shui Bagua Map applied to a floor plan of a one story home, and also some cures suggested for each corner and midpoint. The energy of the life area is stronger in the midpoints and corners.
To download a free simplified bagua map and a life areas test, please click on the button at the top right of this page that says “Take a Life Areas Test,” but Beware! Do not paint the whole room in the life area in the color designated for the life area. In Feng Shui colors of rooms are not chosen by the life area, but by 5 Elements Theory.
The Feng Shui Bagua Map is a great tool to understand what your home is saying about how you are doing in all 9 life areas.
The professional Feng Shui Bagua Map gives you information on the element that rules each life area, the keywords/images/symbols that help a life area, what to use to enhance the life area, and what to avoid. The back has extensive information about the element that goes with each life area, the colors shapes and materials associated with it, and the body parts and emotions that are associated to the element of each life area.
Below are three videos that will help you understand how to apply the bagua map to a floor plan and why we line up the bottom of the Feng Shui Bagua Map with the wall that contains the main entrance.
How to Apply the Bagua Map to a Floor Plan
The video below will show you how to apply the bagua map to a floor plan. Other schools of Feng Shui use the magnetic directions to apply the bagua map, but in my practice I have found this method to be cumbersome and ineffective. The method I’ll show you below (in the video) is much more effective, because it is based on principles of ancient Chinese medicine and ancient Chinese wisdom.
When to Include the Garage in the Bagua Map
Watch the video below to learn when to include the garage in the bagua map and when not to include it.
Why we line up the bottom of the Bagua Map with the Main Door
Some schools of Feng Shui apply the bagua map according to the magnetic directions, using a compass. That method of using the bagua map is based on the belief that each direction holds a particular type of energy. For example, in China, the South side of a property tends to be more hot, and the cold winds come from the North. For this reason the South is associated with heat and the North with cold. In places like Australia or Argentina, this would not be true. In the Southern hemisphere, it is the South side that is cold. The associations of certain types of energies with the magnetic directions would also not be true if you are close to the equatorial line, where temperature depends on altitude (how high you are compared to sea level), rather than on latitude (how far you are, North or South of the equator).
In the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® School we align the bottom of the bagua map with the wall that contains the main door. The video below will explain the reasoning for this, which is based on our own human biology.
