A sound maker can be placed in any Bagua area you want to activate by choosing one that symbolically attunes you to your goal. They also offer a cleansing, uplifting force to areas that seem stagnant or energetically unclean.
My Personal Journey with Feng Shui & Narrative Space
by Laura Carillo, WSFS Graduate
I would like to share one of my personal experiences with Feng Shui. I had a long standing interest in Feng Shui; the art of placement and had been reading about it for years but couldn’t fathom how one could make a career out of it. I did play around with it and experiment with my environment using my home as a Feng Shui lab of sorts. For some reason, I have always had homes where my Prosperity gua was my bedroom and the Relationship gua would be in my living-room area and work space. For many years, I worked in some sort of outside sales with a home office. The home office was inevitably in my Relationship gua.
“Your essence is your inherent, unchanging nature – the “who” that makes you, YOU. Because your Spirit defines your innate preferences and values, expressing your essence in your personal and professional environs fulfills you. Only when your outer world is aligned with your inner being can you project your Authentic Self to others. Dress who you are – inside and out.”
– Evana Maggiore, WSFS Graduate and Founder of Fashion Feng Shui™

A sanctuary is a space within the home that’s dedicated to the exploration of your passions and interests. Here, you are utterly free to express yourself, whether it’s through painting, music, singing, dancing, healing, dreaming, meditating, or writing. Claim a guest room, den, extra bedroom, basement, attic, garage, or library – or an area within any room – and design it to be a refuge that encourages and supports your personal growth and development.

“Indoor air pollution is now considered by many experts to be one of the major threats to health. Attempts to reduce the incidence of ‘sick building syndrome’ have resulted in increased ventilation, the use of low-emission building materials and furnishings, and better preventative maintenance procedures. However, problems still persist. Ironically, the technology arising from futuristic space exploration may have revealed natural solutions that are as old as the earth itself.”
