The Western, or BTB Feng Shui School bagua consists of the same nine areas as the Traditional Feng Shui School Bagua.
However, the compass directions are not taken into consideration; the way you lay the BTB, or Western Feng Shui School Bagua, is by aligning the lower end of the grid with the wall of the front door of your home or office.
Here is how you define the Western, or BTB School bagua.
Create a grid with nine squares (or rectangles) that will fit over your home or office floor plan.
Align the lower part, or the lower row of your grid, with the wall of your main door.
Assign each of the 9 squares (or rectangles) to the following feng shui areas:
First Row, the lower part of the grid (Left to Right)
As the lower part of the BTB bagua grid is always aligned with the wall of the front door, your front door will be in either one of these three areas:
* Personal Growth and Cultivation
* Career / Path in Life
* Helpful People / Blessings
Second, or Middle Row (Left to Right)
* Health / Family
* Center / Heart / Yin Yang
* Children / Creativity
Third, or Upper Row (Left to Right)
* Prosperity/ Abundance
* Fame / Reputation
* Love / Marriage
Once you know which areas of your home or office belong to specific areas of your life, you can start applying proper feng shui cures and improve the quality of energy as needed in each feng shui bagua area.
