Look center-front to find the career and life path area of your home, site, or office. Proper feng shui in this gua can get you on the path of least resistance. By this, I mean that you will be in the flow of life. You’ll feel like opportunities come your way at the appropriate time; giving you the freedom to enjoy everything you set out to do, as well as the inner peace of knowing that you are fulfilling your life’s purpose.
It’s no coincidence that water is the element that works well in this space. It represents the flow of life and keeps us moving. In order to control the direction and speed of movement, simply apply feng shui wisdom to this part of your home. Some situations when you would enhance the Career and Life Path Gua:
- When you want a job.
- When you want a new, different, or more fun job.
- When you want to figure out what you are supposed to be doing in life.
- When you want business to pick up.
- When you want to make more money in business.
Let’s say you want a new job or want to find a new direction in life. You could simply place an item in this part of your home that either has water in it (like an aquarium or vase with flowers), or use a symbol of water (like a painting of a stream or river, or a collection of sea shells from a beach vacation). Or, you could use some feng shui symbols of water, which include the color black, glass, and mirrors. When you add an item, do it very consciously with the intention that you are placing it there to help you with your new direction or job. If you add the intention, you’ll be amazed how much faster it works! Now, all you have to do is open your eyes and see the opportunities heading your way. The front door is also usually associated with career and life path, even if it is not exactly in the gua. Go check out your door and see what condition it is in. If it sticks, you may be stuck in your job. If it is never used, you may feel overlooked at work. If it is dusty and dirty, you may never have the chance to shine in your career. Get your front door happy and healthy and you may find yourself happier in what you do in life. Sounds too simple? Well, would it hurt to try?
