The information I share here was written by a colleague, bj gorman. The title of his book is “The Ch’i of Body and Place, Linking the Chakras to the Bagua Map.”
In her book BJ states that each Gua, or area and section of the Feng Shui energetic map, correlates to a Chakra center. The Chakra system is based on Hinduism teachings. Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel” or “circle”. According to the Chakra system, energy in our body flows as a wheel in motion. When healthy, a chakra is bright and open like a lotus flower, when blocked it is dull and slow moving.
Reading: Chakra feng shui
The energy that flows in our body is reflected in the places where we spend more time. Our environment reflects who we are. bj claims that by changing the energy of the spaces we occupy most, we can change ourselves and our lives.
continues with a comparison between the chakras and the energetic equivalent of feng shui.
The root chakra is located at the base of the spine in the coccyx area. the feng shui equivalent is the area of family and health. Strong physical health and family roots allow us to withstand the bumps and storms of life. how this sector of your home looks indicates how strong you feel, how well you are supported and understood. this area also reflects family history and how harmonious or challenging it can be.
The sacral chakra is located in the lower abdomen, approximately 2″ below the navel. The feng shui equivalent is the area of wealth and prosperity. This is where we feel both fear and power. This is also where we feel security or lack of rest. money or the ability to do so is also part of this area, because money empowers us. on the other hand, how grateful we are for what we have also makes us feel powerful.
The solar plexus chakra is located in the upper abdomen. the feng shui equivalent is the area of fame and reputation. this area is the locus of our sense of worth, the center of our personal power. it is how others see and perceive us. it takes discipline and perseverance to have a good reputation and integrity. our hunch comes from this center and from our own truths. We activate this area with animal prints, candles and pointed shapes.
The heart center chakra is located within the sternum. the feng shui equivalent is the area of love and relationships. Due to its central location, this chakra radiates up and down. the lower 3 chakras are related to physical power and survival centers, the upper chakras are related to the spiritual side. the heart is like the mother that nourishes the body and soul through love. it is where we open our hearts to be vulnerable to receiving and giving love. it is the place where we find balance and harmony within our bodies, as well as our relationship with others. To activate this area, place items in multiples of 2 and symbols of love and friendship.
The throat chakra is located between the head and the collarbone. the feng shui equivalent is the area of children and creativity. this chakra is about speaking our truth and finding our inner voice. the kids and creativity area is where we do what we do for the sheer pleasure of expressing ourselves. it is the place where we find and express creativity through the inner child, without the ego. We activate this area with metallic elements and round elements. the circle is a symbol of creativity and unity.
The third eye chakra is located on the forehead, slightly above and between the eyes. this chakra is about our inner vision, our will, thought and inspiration. It is associated with the brain, mind and intelligence. the feng shui equivalent is helpful people and travel area. it is the energy of synchronicity, of heaven on earth. it is an area of our home where we can honor and place our guides and deities.
The crown chakra is located at the top of our head. it is the point of contact of the spiritual life force. the feng shui equivalent is the career area. this is where we connect the flow of the spirit, where we delve into ourselves to understand the mysteries of our path. it is where we trust within ourselves and have the faith to go with the flow. the water jet is an excellent activator of this area.
higher consciousness, the spiritual space located outside our bodies above the head. it is the place of a higher level of consciousness that reaches the pure spirit. the feng shui equivalent is the area of knowledge and self-cultivation. this is the quiet place where we are still and meditate, where we cultivate our own chi to grow and know who we are. this is where we learn our life lessons as we move up and down through the chakras. this is where we understand that the power of thought and belief is what makes energy circulate throughout our physical body.
our spinal column correlates with the center of the bagua. the column circulates and integrates the energy of all the chakras, the place of the kundalini energy. the central area of the bagua is where you see the yin and yang symbol. It is where there is constant movement and balance between the receptive and the active, between the feminine and masculine energies. it is the duality of spirit and earth. the center is the area where we ground ourselves. it’s land.
there are some details that were left out for the purposes of this blog; such as the colors of the chakras, as well as the energy centers of the bagua and the names of the 8 trigrams of the bagua. bj also explains the importance of each area or chakra to religion and cultural belief systems, found in christianity, judaism and kabbalah. you can find those details in bj’s book or by visiting his website. www.spaceharmony.com
