The breakup of a longterm relationship can be very disorienting.
Many, many questions are likely to come up that have never occurred to you before.
The longer the relationship, the more urgent it becomes to find satisfying answers to questions like,
- “Can I be happy as a single person?”
- “How well do I know myself anymore?”
- “How can find a sense of peace amidst this emotional uproar?”.
Feng Shui’s Bagua Map gives you a place to rest and begin to answer just such questions in the Knowledge & Self-Cultivation area of your home.
Located in the inner-left hand corner of your space, the Knowledge & Self-Cultivation sector helps you slow down and reflect as you begin to re-build your life.
This area is symbolized by the image of the Mountain: stable, calm and timeless. The mountain is made of the nourishing Earth element that sustains you when times are tough; it stands tall and strong, giving you a sense of protection and safety.
The Knowledge & Self-Cultivation sector is a great place for a library of the books that are most nourishing to you right now.
Whether they’re your favorite art books (my first selection when I was divorcing) or self-help books to get you through tough times (I chose a few a bit further along in my journey), utilize this area to sit still and get re-acquainted with yourself.
With this article we’ve made a circuit of the eight areas that comprise the outside of the Bagua Map. There’s just one area to go, the Center or Tai Chi area, which I will post about when I return from my summer sabbatical in a few weeks.
