Balance, Imbalance, and Opposites

One theme you probably have seen throughout my blog posts is the importance of balance. You may be wondering, “Why is balance so important?”  Well, if there is an imbalance somewhere in your environment, it can be showing up in your life. What do I mean by this?

Imbalance as it Relates to the Bagua

The Feng Shui practice I use focuses on the bagua layout and how it aligns with the front door of your home or business. Picture your home as a square and then divide that square into nine equal sections. 

From the image of the bagua, you can see how each area is connected to another based on its proximity. The eight outside areas are then anchored together by the area in the center. From this, you can see how all these areas of the bagua weave together and are connected to each other.

If there is an imbalance in one of the areas of the bagua, it can be affecting that specific area, and it can also be affecting the areas near it or opposite of it. For example, let’s take a look the Fame & Reputation and Career areas.

Say that you absolutely love your job, but you just don’t seem to be getting the recognition or credit you deserve for the work that you are doing. Do you see how in the bagua layout the Career and Fame & Reputation areas are opposite of each other? If there is something in one of those areas that is out of balance, it can not only be affecting that particular area (for example Fame) but also the area across from it (Career).

Now let’s take a look at the Prosperity and Helpful People & Travel areas. If you don’t have Helpful People in your life, you may not be prospering as much as you would like (you may be having to work a lot harder to achieve what you have or maybe you don’t have the network or support system you need).

What does this all boil down to? Balance, balance, balance. How do you achieve balance? Well, a good way to get started is to take a look at your environment and clear any clutter. Is your garage packed with boxes? Is your closet overflowing? Clear these areas to create balance in your environment and to make space for opportunities to enter your life.
