So now we are in the exact middle of the ba gua or your floor plan. This represents the health area. The colors in this area should be yellow and earth tones. It reflects a calm area in your home and should be yin in nature. The shape for this area of the gua is square and the body parts it represents are the stomach and spleen. This area like all others should be clutter free.
When I had an emergency gall bladder surgery last winter, the doctor said I healed faster than most and was amazed. I really didn’t want to tell him that it was because my living room (in the health area) was clutter free, newly redecorated and I had just purchased new furniture. He knows I am an astrologer and teach tarot and metaphysics, so I didn’t want to concern him any more!
Everything was in order, thus, my health was in order very quickly after my ongoing illness which lasted for over two years. I was diagnosed with acid reflux and on three medications for a year which of course did nothing since I never had acid reflux. Then, I was told I had an ulcer but because I was very sick and couldn’t eat anything, they wanted me to wait until I returned from China to get an endoscopy and cat scan (getting another Feng Shui certification in China Studies). I did lose thirty pounds without being able to eat – not a healthy way of dieting, but I still appreciated the weight loss. Within a week of returning to the USA, I had a horrible attack, went to the emergency room and was admitted for gall bladder issues and pancreatitis. It was interesting to me that once the health area was completely and accurately Feng Shui’d, my illness came to light and forced me deal with the issues at hand. Then, after the successful operation, I was home and felt much better. Everything worked smoothly without incident.
This area in my home is my living room which has lots of light, all the proper cures, colors and shapes. It’s so wonderful to see Feng Shui in action.
What can you do to make that area in your life easier to handle? Think about what you can do to keep yourself healthy. Can you eat better food, perhaps organic? Do you exercise, walk around the neighborhood, walk the dog or go to the gym (or do you just sit home on your butt and watch TV)? Can you clean up any messes left in that area? Can you ask others to keep it clean as well? Are the colors correct or do you at least have the earth tones as accents in the room? Live plants, water fountains, a 60 mm crystal hanging from the ceiling or window and perhaps a statue of Buddha or Quan Yin would be appropriate to protect your health. Any Diety you prefer is certainly acceptable.
This is the calm area of the gua so make it a place where you can reflect, meditate or just relax. Once you do this, you will find that your health issues will be resolved quickly. Stress, exhaustion, being overwhelmed, confused or indecisive will be thing of the past.
