All set to welcome the Year of the Dog this Friday? You’ve probably tried sprucing up your home using these Feng Shui Tips. But after the celebrations are over, perhaps you’d like to do some serious Feng Shui improvements for the long run. Why not do it using a Bagua Map?

This basic, yet most important Feng Shui tool is believed to hold the key to improving the flow of good energy into your home. Here is what a typical Bagua Map looks like:

For starters, the Bagua Map is divided into nine squares that represent nine sectors (or elements) that should be present in your house: Wealth and Prosperity (wood), Fame and Reputation (fire), Marriage and Relationships (earth), New Beginnings and Family (wood), Health (earth), Children and Future (metal), Knowledge (Earth), Career and Life Journey (water), and Travel and Helpful Friends (metal).

When laid onto your house’s floor plan, you can see what sector falls on each area of your house. On another note, you can also see which sectors are missing in your house (like, for example, if the Wealth sector falls on an empty spot that doesn’t have a room—this usually happens if your floor plan is irregular). Missing sectors can be remedied by adding a room or extra walls to the area to form a room, or applying a paint color to the area that represents the color of the missing Gua
