what do you want to be when you grow up? Do you love your job and can’t wait to get there on Monday morning or are you contemplating a career change? Beyond your work in today’s world, do you feel purposeful, focused, and knowing that you are sharing your unique gifts and talents with the world? Did you realize that your home can help you figure out all of these important real-life choices? the feng shui bagua area for career is a wonderful pool of insight, inspiration, and direction. let’s dive in.
An important feng shui tool, the bagua map represents vital energy, or ch’i, in nine general areas of your life. The bagua grid, similar to a tic-tac-toe board, is placed on your house plan to designate each area. As you stand in your front door facing in, the running area, or gua, is in the middle third of your front yard.

- Photos of you doing your job
- Reference to a mentor or other influence that is important to your work
- Books and magazines about your profession or the latest trends in your industry
- Things that express your life’s mission or purpose in life

special considerations for mirrors and feng shui windows
The placement of any mirror requires special care in Feng Shui. Hang them at a height that will allow any adult in the household to see their full head in the mirror.
Especially when used for decorative purposes, I have seen clients place mirrors too high, leaving only the top half of their head visible in the reflection.
Seeing yourself as incomplete or less than complete over an extended period of time can degrade self-image and confidence.
You may have heard of feng shui bagua mirrors. eight-sided, they are usually only 4 to 6 inches wide and often have a painted wooden border. I consider them a separate topic from mirrors in general and strongly recommend that you place them only on the advice of a trained feng shui practitioner.
a lot of window glass can certainly count as your improvement in your career area. make sure it is clean, transparent and without cracks. this is very important whether the window is here or in any other bagua area.
