Are you ready for adventure? What are your travel dreams? We just returned from a fabulous trip to Italy, and many of my friends and clients are traveling now; Spain, Italy, France, Hawaii, Wales and all over the United States.
You achieve your goals when you focus clearly on what you want to accomplish and then act accordingly. The first step in Feng Shui is to use the Bagua map to locate the area in your home associated to travel, and then use the recommended enhancements and affirmations to drive your goals forward.
The Feng Shui Bagua
The Bagua comes from the Chinese philosophy, “The I Ching,” and literally means “eight trigrams” with the center for grounding. In the “I Ching” the Helpful People/Travel area of your home or business is located in the front right corner and is associated with the qualities of synchronicity, inspiration, confidence and travel. Our lives are shaped by our actions. When everything is aligned, people and places give us the inspiration and guidance we need. Total synchronicity is defined as everything falling into place; being at the right place at the right time, and your life being transformed and enhanced by words or actions of those they met, or by traveling to a special place which changes your life forever.
If your goal is to travel, then this area is worth enhancing:
Enhancements for the Helpful People and Travel area inside your home or business:
- Art, photos, figures pertaining to places where you have traveled/want to travel, spiritual guides and mentors
- Items in colors of white, black or grey
- Things made of metal such as furniture, lamps, candle holders, frames, figurines
- Quotes, affirmations and sayings pertaining to travel
- This is a great place for a travel vision board
- Add written or stated affirmations as if they have already happened. For example: "I am having so much fun on my vacation in Italy."
Enhancements for the Helpful People and Travel area outside your home or business:
- Garden art reflecting spiritual guides (angels, Buddha, saints)
- Items, flowers, plants in the color white
- Natural rocks and stones
- Circular or oval shapes
- Outdoor items from your travels
A Missing Helpful People and Travel area:
If your Helpful People and Travel area is missing from your floor plan, you can anchor the area by doing one or a combination of the following cures: Anchor the missing area structurally using the metal element wherever possible, such as building a trellis or deck, planting flowers in a flower garden or planter boxes in white, adding a large stone statue of a spiritual guide or placing a large rock on the corner, or a metal seating area. (This could be a beautiful meditation area). If the area outside is not accessible, you can symbolically anchor from the inside by hanging a 30 mm round faceted crystal, placing a mirror, and/or a picture representing helpful people or travel on the inside wall by the missing area.
