Have the right intentions:
While you’re making these changes, be sure to focus on the positive results you want to create with Spirit’s help.
You might even want to do just one section at a time to test out the feng shui for yourself, to see the results with your own eyes. That’s what I did! I started playing with feng shui and this particular type of bagua last fall.
It’s easy to start — just use things you already have:
- throw rugs
Or, go out and buy fresh, new items. Stay away from flea markets and thrift stores unless you are very good (and experienced) at clearing the energy of objects other people have used.
If you need a new color in an area, but aren’t excited about the idea and work of painting it, just use a towel or sheet draped in the area to see how it affects the energy. It’s surprising what an impact that simple action can have.
Clear the energy:
Before, during, and after making your feng shui changes using the bagua, clear the energy of the room and of the area you’re working on. Sometimes this is surprisingly difficult and can feel like you are moving a big pile of sludge — and you are! Be proud of yourself for pulling it off, and keep clearing every day until it feels like the new, light, flowing energy is established and dominant.
Use white sage, which you can buy in the bulk section of your health food store, at a metaphysical store, or online. Burn just the tip of it, put out the flame, and either wave it around in the air to spread the smoke, or use your hand or a feather to do the same thing. Use a singing bowl. Carry a chime, bell, or windchime around the area with you, using sound to clear the space. You can chant or sing. Turn on your favorite music, or music that puts you into a mood you want to have. Use all of the above in any combination. Pray to your spiritual helpers for their guidance and assistance in creating the energy that best benefits you and creates harmony and good relationships with all who enter your space.
