Are you going to decorate your home or harmonize the environments with Feng Shui?
See how to do the analysis and mapping with Baguá to identify which areas of your home are being influenced by positive and negative energies and how it is possible to harmonize these spaces.
What is Baguá Feng Shui?
The Chinese term when translated: ‘be’ means eight and ‘guar’ sides. Baguá means eight trigrams or eight mutations represented in an eight-sided diagram. But what are the trigrams?
Trigrams are drawings that represent the elements and combinations of Yin Yang energies that symbolize each area of your life.
In Bagua Feng Shui, as you can see in the image below, the broken lines represent Yin and the solid lines represent Yang. The union of these combinations is also a symbol of protection to neutralize disharmonious energies in the environments.
Origin of Feng Shui Baguá
Among the various existing legends about the revelation of the Baguá, the most popular occurred 3,000 years ago. Chinese Emperor Fu His visualized eight trigrams on the shell of a turtle as he strolled along the banks of the Yellow River.
According to the emperor, the knowledge that explains all things was contained in this image that was revealed to human beings.
In addition to Feng Shui, other areas of traditional Chinese culture were structured around Baguá. In the Taoist doctrine the Baguá is used as an amulet.
In Tai Chi, the figure of the eight trigrams represents this Chinese martial art that is based on the observation of nature, animals and the interaction between the most different natural elements.
Types of Baguá
Each trigram is made up of three lines, and as we mentioned earlier, these lines represent the Yin Yang energies.
The characteristic of each type of this Feng Shui tool is represented by the arrangement of the trigrams. In Baguá Cue Posterior, the vibrational flow is from the inside to the outside. While in Baguá Cue Primordial the movement is reversed, from the outside to the inside.
The types of Baguá take on different meanings and applications, from now on understand more about the two most important ones.
Primordial Sky Baguá
Have you ever seen a Feng Shui Baguá on the entrance door positioned outside at the top of the portal? This type is indicated for this region acting as a protective amulet.
Here the arrangement of the trigrams is related to the phenomena of nature and represents the universal cosmic order.
This position of the trigrams causes the flow of Chi (positive) energy to be radiated into the environment, reflecting in a beneficial way in the lives of all residents.
Usually this type of begun for the entrance door is produced with an octagonal mirror to reflect sunlight into the environment, which symbolically protects, neutralizes and eliminates negative energies.
These characteristics and zymology that make up the design of Baguá Cue Primordial make it a specific tool for the external area of the place where it will be applied.
Baguá Later Heaven
On the other hand, the trigrams of the Posterior Heaven Baguá represent the materialization of the universe and its constant change. Here the laws that govern nature are connected with humanity.
In this Bagua the Yin Yang lines form the trigrams in opposite order that represent the energies of the phenomena of nature and the connection with terrestrial life.
This Baguá is used in Feng Shui consultancies to map environments and harmonize spaces. It is this type that we are presenting in this article. Understand more!
