Bagua, Colour & Chakras in Feng Shui

Updated: 6 days ago

This global pandemic is a time of uncertainty for all of us. My hope is for everyone reading this that we all remember to keep our mindsets positive, healthy and hopeful.


Bagua (meaning 8 trigrams) is one of the main tools used in Feng Shui and is considered the “energy map”, analyzing the energy in any given space. The Bagua is divided into 8 sectors and are represented by a direction, element, colour, body part, family and more.

In Feng Shui, the universe is governed by a cosmic duality, sets of two opposing and complementing principles or cosmic energies that can be observed in nature called Yin and Yang. These opposing forces are imperative in Feng Shui practice.

The Bagua (energy map) is placed over any given space or structure according to directions (Compass Feng Shui) to map

out energy of a space and to analyze how the energy affects those dwelling in the space. The Bagua Map is a Feng Shui Consultant's most valuable tool for a Feng Shui audit.

COLOUR as a tool in Feng Shui analysis:

As a Feng Shui Consultant one of the frequent requests from clients is to recommend colour choices to paint the rooms in their home.

We all are aware that the colour red represents a strong and fiery element. It signifies passion and attracts energy. Red maybe a good choice for some locations in your home however, it may be a very negative choice for some rooms depending on the magnetic energy flow in a specific space. For example too much red in a dining room would make you feel rushed while you are eating because it is an active yang colour. However, if you would like to place red in a room where there will be much activity like a game room the colour red would be a good choice.

Colour Therapy:

Colour therapy is an ideal therapeutic treatment for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing. Colour therapy is an excellent modality to enhance Feng Shui. Colour Practitioners can help you work with colour in your home on a more personal level due to their knowledge of Colour psychology. Colour therapists teach clients how to work with specific colours in the Chakra system to open the flow of energy and restore balance in the physical body.

Feng Shui & Colour Mirrors Therapy are excellent tools help to balance and heal your personal energy & Feng Shui does the same for your home or business. It is obvious we can no understand how our outer environment is a reflection of our inner environment. When these 2 energies are in balance we become a happy and healthier human being.

Colour Mirrors System


A "chakra" is a spiritual energy center of the Human Body.

The word Chakra comes from Sanskrit, defined as "spinning wheels" or "wheels of light". The Chakras are energy centers in and around our bodies.

The colour red corresponds to the "Root Chakra ."

The "Root" chakra is positioned at the base of the spine. The Root Chakra is associated with family/tribal dynamics, survival, basic needs and passion. We can understand how the Fire element that is Red is associated with survival being that man invented Fire for survival.

Fire was an asset for early man. It gave him power in the tribe and the ability to give warmth and nourishment to them. Fire is one of the 5 elements in Feng Shui principles.

As I mentioned the "Root Chakra" relates to survival, family, and nourishment for survival. Being accepted into a tribe or family unit is an important need for human beings. Good health and family is important.

We can therefore see where the "Root Chakra" is similar to the "Family and Health Gua" in Feng Shui. The Family and Health sector of the "Bagua" in Feng Shui represents our family and our ancestors. The "Family & Health" gua is associated with new beginnings and growth.

In Feng Shui, a Practitioner can anaylze where areas in your home that require Feng Shui remedies can be actually reflecting blockages you may have in your personal "Chakras".

When there is a blockage of Chi (energy) or need of balance in your home in Feng Shui we may recommend moving a piece of furniture, change your sleeping directions or introduce one of the 5 elements to correct the flow of Chi.

In order to unblock a person's Chakra (spiritual energy system) a Certified therapist with knowledge of the Chakra system may do this with Colour therapy, dowsing, crystal therapy and meditation.

Today, there is much documented data on how positive energy increases our immune system and overall general health.

Below is a chart indicating the 7 Major Chakras and the Colours associated with each one.

In this time of uncertainty with the Corona virus it is very important for each and everyone of us to feel "grounded" to the earth. Prayer, meditation, practicing yoga, reiki & good Feng Shui in your homes and all spiritual modalities are a positive way to bring inner peace and balance now.


I advise clients to become familiar with the 5 element cycle used in Feng Shui. I will bring that information to you on a Consultation. I will explain the elemental cycle to you and discuss the aspects of Yin and Yang to promote harmony in the home.

The 5 Elemental Cycle


I have discussed how Feng Shui, Colour therapy and Chakra work together in harmony can enhance the energy of your environment and personal energy.

During these unprecedented times many are people are feeling the effects of "Covid Burnout"

We are spending more time in our homes. Energetic healing as I have discussed for yourself and energetically balancing your home's environment with Feng Shui can assist you to enjoy a more centered and focused lifestyle.
