What is Bagua?

Understanding the Feng Shui Bagua

Each section of the Bagua is called a triagram.  Each triagram represents a different area of your life. To use the Bagua, you will need a scaled down floor plan of your home or office.  Place the Bagua on top of your floor plan.  The entrance of your floor plan should be lined up with the bottom of the Bagua. The entrance is defined as the door you use to enter the space.
