Let’s delve a little deeper into the art and science of Feng Shui through the eyes of Sacred Geometry. The diagrams you see above represent the Western Ba-gua Map and a superimposed Ba-gua Map over a floor plan. Each area on the map represents a major life section that becomes a metaphor of life cycles, experiences, conscious, and subconscious connections in a person's life. On a more practical level, these life section associate with an accent color, an element, form or shape.
A few of the main foundations when implementing Feng Shui is to establish a balance of Yin and Yang, the 5 elements, and an overall fluid movement through and around the interior and exterior of your home. From a Feng Shui perspective this could be accomplished by implementing Tangible and Transcendental changes.
TANGIBLE CHANGES COULD INCLUDE:
- Furniture selection & arrangements
- Color and artwork selection
- Shapes, forms & textures
- Taking action (changing behaviors and mindsets)
TRANSCENDENTAL CHANGES (WORKING WITH THE ‘UNSEEN’) COULD INCLUDE:
- The power of Intentions
- The use of crystals
- Opening and Balancing Chakras
- Implementing the Five Elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water) into your home and self
Whether you choose to use the flying stars, the Western Ba-gua map or the Lu-Pan (Compass), as to name a few possible options, the intention is the same. Which is to tap into the source energy called, the Torus Field (Toroidal Flow). "Science is now seeing that everything moves through this form in one way or another, including ourselves. The torus is a self organizing system that all comes together at a space of unity and expands all around itself until it returns back to that original space in the center and will continue to do it again." Physicists say, when all elemental particles are balanced, energy flows without any interruption and change can happen.
I invite you to take that perspective and keep it in your mind as your are Feng Shui-ing your home. You are purposely choosing to create a literal change in energetic frequency so it becomes balanced and flows with the least amount of interruption. The diagram above and below help illustrate this visual.
As you balance the various life sections (meridians) throughout your home step-by-step, you are simultaneously rebalancing the Torus Fields, which extends to the wholeness of your living environment. In turn, that change in energetic frequency expands to your personal Torus Field, influencing you and cultivating a healthier and stronger point of attraction for positive change as needed.
