Much More Than Just Children
The creativity and children section of the bagua in your home or office is not always about children.
with or without children, this is the part of the house that can keep you creative, provide childlike fun and energize your youthful energy.
If you’re an artist or author, look to the creative area of the bagua to infuse some creative energy or overcome that feeling of writer’s block.
Even if you’re a lawyer, check out this area to help you develop creative and winning arguments.
At the same time, this is an important area for many people seeking feng shui for the first time, as they are trying to have a baby while having fertility problems.
Keep in mind that whether you’re looking to have a baby or instill some creativity, the suggestions offered here are pretty much interchangeable.
Also keep in mind that this area, like any other gua, forms an important part of the creative cycle of the entire bagua.
It can be beneficial to improve in this area even if you have family relationship problems, professional problems, money problems or health problems to make creative improvements.
symbolizes your desires
Symbols of children and creativity are very important to this area of your home.
Whether you’re looking to have kids or just trying to infuse some creativity into your life, this is a great place for games, toys, those cute little baby shoes, etc.
When trying to have a baby myself, I cut out pictures of a cute baby from the pottery barn catalog for my first child and another cute baby from a kids place ad for my second child that I thought would look like my own . and my husband.
I added each one to the frames in this area of my house, as if they were children I already have. wouldn’t you know my kids look weirdly like those babies in the commercials.
I joke that I ordered a pottery barn baby.
Although ideal, these types of objects do not have to be outdoors.
You could have pictures pasted behind frames or board games on a cabinet in this area.
The most ideal feng shui colors for the children’s/creative area are yellow and white.
It’s important to make this area bright and fun.
white is the color of purity, like that of babies. With white, think of it as a blank canvas with plenty of room for you to create your own artwork.
if you have a bathroom here, for example, add white or yellow towels and curtains.
white and yellow don’t look good? try some warm earth tones like warm yellows, terracotta, light salmon, or soft greens.
The shapes for the creativity and children’s area are round, circular or rounded. complementary shapes would be flat or square.
This is an ideal spot for a round chair or square framed paintings.
A board game of checkers achieves round, flat, and square shapes while providing a reminder of a child’s game, as mentioned above.
elements… good and bad
This area of the house is represented by the metal element.
You can have a painting or pictures in this area in a metal frame or a weaker item that won’t destroy the metal item, like wood.
The destructive element here would be fire. so if you have a fireplace in this area, don’t put your kids’ pictures on the mantel.
You shouldn’t put pictures of family or friends above the fireplace in any area of the house, but it’s very important here.
what does fire do to metal? melts it!
A fireplace or candles here will have the effect of draining your children’s energy or your creative energy. this would not be successful in school, life, work, or even in your thoughts.
Obviously, moving a fireplace out of this area can be cost prohibitive, so let’s talk cures.
place a mirror that is roughly equivalent in size to the fireplace above the fireplace or even a painting or image of still waters. this will help reduce the destructive cycle that fire will cause in the creative part of your home.
The ultimate symbol of children and creativity is a real child.
In other words, if it works to have your child’s bedroom in this area of your house, it’s ideal.
Same advice as above, but also keep in mind that your children will reflect the energy and images around them.
Even though tigger and eeyore are cute, do you want your kids to be aggressive (tigger) or depressed (eeyore)?
think sleeping lambs or cute bunnies if you’re looking for a quiet child.
my husband had to remind me to keep calvin & hobbes outside our children’s room, although I find those cartoons hilarious. As funny as they are, you’re right: I don’t want my kids to act like that!
things to avoid
There are some things that can be quite destructive to creativity and the children’s area of your home and therefore should be avoided.
We already talked extensively about fireplaces, which sometimes cannot be avoided.
at the same time, you should avoid the color red, which is a symbol of fire, the destructive element of metal.
Since they are also symbols of fire, triangular or pointed objects should also be avoided here.
Also, avoid colors like firefighter red, royal blue, or bright yellows, as they can boggle children or your mind.
Kids wall decorations can be quite popular, but avoid ones that would also be quite fidgety, like rockets or racing cars (unless you want fidgeting kids or fidgeting thoughts for yourself).
While it’s important to be creative, be careful not to lose any sleep!
Make it Positive
To finish, and as with any area of your home that you want to improve, create an energy in your environment that will be a positive influence to achieve what you are looking for.
In other words, make sure you have things here that remind you to be creative and that remind you of happy kids.
I have noticed in the consultations of those who are trying unsuccessfully to have children that there are toxic elements here, such as a fireplace or scenes of destruction or sadness.
The environment you create for yourself will be the environment you will live in, both inside and outside the home.
for those of you trying to have children: relax and enjoy the process after following the guidelines above (read: don’t stress!). try to have fun with the process the same way you did before you decided to have children. You and your partner will thank me for this advice!
for those of you trying to add a little creativity, may your inner child flourish.
Do you have a unique situation in your home or office?
Is the creativity/kids/fertility section missing from your floor plan or do you have a dangerous feature, like a bathroom, fireplace, or garage?
Are you looking to have children, improve your children’s lives, or are you just looking to spark a little creativity in your own life?
then contact mrs. feng shui right now to inquire about a feng shui consultation so you can add harmony and balance to your life. It will be the best investment you have ever made.
