What is a Bagua?

Bagua (meaning 8 trigrams) is one of the main tools used in Feng Shui and is considered the “energy map”, analyzing the energy in any given space.

Through understanding the Bagua, we can redirect the energy flow to focus on things we need to improve and enrich by increasing the positive chi and correct the negative chi. With proper use, this tool will help an individual achieve their goals and will be a powerful and positive influence on their life.

The Bagua map will help you assess, improve and enrich every aspect of your life and assist in self-discovery. Here at Bagua Center, we try to help our clients achieve the same thing through workshops for different practices and disciplines.

Today, we’ll discuss what the Bagua is, how it works and how it can be used to improve the overall well-being of you and your family. 

The 8 Trigrams

The Bagua is divided into 8 Trigrams with each of them consisting of three broken (Yin) or unbroken (Yang) lines. These trigrams represent the fundamental principles of reality:

  • Fame and Reputation
  • Abundance and Prosperity
  • Family and Community
  • Love and Relationship
  • Helpful People and Travel
  • Creativity and Children
  • Career and Life Mission
  • Wisdom and Knowledge

Bagua Map and Feng Shui

Feng Shui practitioners use Bagua to analyze the energy in a given space such as homes or offices. By laying out the trigrams in 3×3 squares, you will have wisdom and knowledge, career, and helpful people and travel on the bottom part. Abundance and prosperity, fame and reputation, love and relationship in the top most part. On the middle lies family and community on the right and creativity and children on the left. In the center the most important of all, health and vitality.

Practitioners then use this map to arrange the space to achieve positive chi for aspects you want to improve the most but is normally used for a holistic approach. Bagua will help you navigate through life with direction and guidance, to achieve the changes you want to make in your life.

The Bagua Center represents your physical, psychological, and spiritual health. It is the most important of all as it touches and affects every aspect of your life and well being and must always be our priority and the center of our actions.
