Feng shui can be so confusing. He does this. And she does that. Each practitioner has their own way of doing things. And nothing makes sense.
In this article, I am referring to a highly misinterpreted and misused feng shui tool, the Bagua.
Basic Feng Shui
Most people practice basic feng shui by placing a bagua map or chart over a space; thus dividing the space into 8 trigrams, 8 palaces, or 8 different directional compass.
What most people don't know is that this is not the correct way of using a bagua map. It is the very beginning or basic stage of feng shui.
This way of using bagua:
Intermediate Feng Shui
Intermediate feng shui use the basic feng shui and the bagua map at another level. So instead of working with the difference of 45 degrees, intermediate feng shui works with the difference of 15 degrees, applies time, refers to a compass reading, looks at a person’s age, marital status, and family status, and focuses on the whole building and its center.
Intermediate-to-Advanced Feng Shui
Intermediate-to-advanced Feng Shui refines Intermediate Feng Shui. This level of feng shui works with 15-degree and applies to a person or thing within a room. Instead of working with the whole building, like in Intermediate Feng Shui, this level works positioning desks or beds within a room at 15 degrees placements.
Advanced Feng Shui
Advanced Feng Shui is a precision method that takes 360 degrees and divide it into 64 parts or 64 hexagrams where we work with, look at, and recommend the difference of 5.625 degrees. This method also includes a person's energy (aka Bazi/astrology/kua or gua/DOB). At this level, we work with both a person's energy and a building's energy.
Because we are working with 5.625 degrees, the chances of finding an auspicious Feng Shui earth energy that resonates or matches with a person's energy is slim. And so this method is not highly practiced.
