What If My Fame Area Is In The Bathroom?

One of my dear readers writes:

“I just laid the Bagua Map over my home and discovered that my Fame & Reputation area is located in my bathroom!  This can’t be ideal — please help!”

Dear reader, while you are correct that it’s not ideal, don’t panic –> you don’t have to move out of your house, and your reputation can still be enhanced!

Think of this as yet another reason to make your bathroom as spa-like, warm and cozy as possible.

Candles + red accents = bathroom luxury….

The Water element dominates the bathroom so to begin with use the Wood element for balance.  (More on balancing the Five Elements in the bathroom here.)

At the same time since Fire represents the sense of expansion, illumination and brilliance associated with your Fame & Reputation, you’ll want to make sure Fire is well-represented in your bathroom.

Candles, warm lighting, pointed or star-shaped objects and subtle red accents all bring Fire to life.

 You may also wish to bring in an inspiring reminder of your own brilliance: a photo you’ve taken or piece of art you’ve created, for example.

In other words, create a bathroom that inspires your intention to create a positive reputation in the world!

I welcome other ideas for creating an uplifting bathroom!

    Using basketry for any bathroom accessories is a great way to bring in the Wood element, as well as natural materials that are softer, curved and textured, and are in the Water-balancing, warm Earth tones of yellows and browns. Try baskets for holding bath accessories and extra TP, a natural basketry waste container or clothes hamper, a grass floor mat or a textured linen/grass-look shower curtain.

      Yes, this is a great way to bring in Wood. Thank you so much for your comment!
