Leigh: Hi welcome to Feng Shui your way, I am your host Leigh Kubin and in this episode we are in Denise and Leo’s downtown loft. The room will be working in falls in three areas of the Bagua, so let us go see how to solve this challenge.
Denise your living room is unique in a fact that it contains three areas of the Bagua in one room. You got your wealth, and your fame and reputation and your relationship areas, so that gives us the fun project to work on. What are your three goals for this area?
Denise: I am recently married, so strong relationship. We both want to change our career paths and hopefully that will bring us more money.
Leigh: That is great, great goals to get you started with. We are in your wealth area and I noticed that you got some things over here in your wealth corner, we call it clutter, and it creates stagnant energy. So with you wanting to make more money, clutter in your wealth area is not the best choice. So let us find a new home for that.
Denise: Okay, maybe in the closet?
Leigh: Or maybe donate it if you are not going to use it.
Leigh: The abundance area is a wood sector, so in this area we really want to stay away from fire and the way your couches positioned, you are creating a triangle which is fire. So we really want to get this straighten out, get the fire out of here and traditionally the color is purple, you do not have to bring in purple, jewel tones work also and your couch is a jewel tone, so that will work but I would really like to see something on this wall that represents growth for you and your husband, with you looking to find new careers we really want to open up those opportunities and abundance for you. The middle part of your wall is actually the fame and reputation sector of the Bagua. So traditionally the color is red but we are not going to paint it red because it will bleed over into your wealth area which would cause money problems. So we are going to focus on the middle and we are going to focus on bringing in elements that represent fire such as the color red, candles, triangles, anything that will represent fire, we want to put in this spot. Wood is also really good to have here because it feels the fire making it bigger. And the fame and reputation area is very important to activate especially since you are looking for a new career and both of you and your husband doing that together, we want to find something that has meaning for you to put in that spot. This is the third area of the Bagua, and it is your relationship corner and this is a great corner for you and your husband with you just being married, I know you want to set this up in a way that will create a strong relationship, so we will find something here in two’s to put to represent you two together, and I would love to see this wood armoire moved because wood breaks up the earth, so let us clear out this area, set it up for you two and find a new home for this. The traditional color for the relationship area is pink but you can use anything that has a little bit of muddiness to it, earthy tones and also consider the shape which is square or horizontal or rectangle, you can incorporate that in there too. So now we got some ideas, you want to get started?
Denise: Yes, let us go.
Leigh: Here is how we are going to Feng Shui this room, we will remove the clutter from the wealth area and straighten up that triangle so we do not burn up Denise’s money. We will bring in the wood and fire elements for the fame and reputation area grounding them in their new journey and we will remove the wood element from the relationship area and bring in a seating area for two.
What do you think about what we did?
Denise: I love it.
Leigh: How does it feel?
Denise: It feels really good.
Leigh: I think you did a great job and I love the fact that you did not have to go shopping, everything that we moved was already here. Well in your wealth area, we removed the triangle and brought in the wood element with those two pillars I think that is a great representation for you and Leo and your new careers. Well in t
