Our home signifies more than what we consider our dwelling place. In feng shui, people believe that our home affects the many aspects of our life including our careers. Feng shui teaches plentiful ways to enhance the different areas of our life. One of the most powerful tools in feng shui that we can use in our homes is the Bagua Map.
The Bagua map divides your home into nine separate zones. These zones represent different areas of your life including family, wealth, travel, knowledge, health, children, fame, career, and love. It is important that you place things or materials that can nourish the areas and not counter them.
If you are familiar with the Bagua map, you might have known the fact that the fame and reputation sector is good with any fire element. But what happens when the location of your home’s fame and reputation gua is in your bathroom?
Fame Area Is in The Bathroom
When your fame area is in the bathroom, the dominance of the water’s existence is said to shoot all the energy down your drain. It is also similar to flushing down your passion to the toilet. This is probably the reason why you have problems with your social life. It is a known fact that most of us do not take fame as a big deal and several people don’t want to do anything about it. If you are one of those people who do not have any aspirations of becoming famous, you will likely think having this sector placed in your bathroom is not to worry about. I am not trying to burst your bubble, but sadly it is actually something to worry about.
The fame and reputation area does not only focus on your level of fame but also is closely associated with your career sector in life. It also includes your passion. Thus, if you are having troubles in your career and promotion, it could be linked to your social abilities. Being a good team player is a necessary skill to boost your career and climb the corporate ladder. Guess which part of the Bagua map helps you with this? Yea, that is right—it is the fame and reputation area!
If you still think it is not worth the time to deal with your fame and reputation area being located in your bathroom, then let me warn you that it is also related to creating a connection with people like building a family or looking for a lover. As feng shui always taught us: everything is connected.
However, even though it is something to worry about, it is definitely not something to panic about. Know these easy and quick remedies for your fame and reputation area. Do not let your dreams and aspiration flush down your drains. Do something about it!
Since it is nearly impossible to remove your bathroom and put it in a different space, there are quick remedies you can apply. Here are some of the things you can do to cure the fame and reputation of your home being located to your bathroom:
Make It Cozy and Warm!
This is a great opportunity for you to have your bathroom feels like a spa salon. How nice would that be? You will not only be able to gain good fame and reputation but also have the best bathroom to relax in! Since the water element predominates the bathroom, you may try and add fire elements to it. Add candles, especially scented ones. Also, install warm lighting and decorations that have a pointed or star-shaped appearance. Fire element also represents the sense of expansion and radiance. Make sure your bathroom feels that way when you added these fire element materials.
Also, do not be afraid to over-apply. Your bathroom needs more than you think in able to over dominate the water elements. Nevertheless, even though you are going for a cozy look, it is best to avoid having black walls or decorations in your bathroom since this color is very well-known as a water element instead add red-colored ones.

You can install a wood lining to your walls or replace your cabinets with storage that is made of varnished wood.
Too much Wavy lines or free-formed shape accents are discouraged in your bathroom since it looks like water. Having such decors or accents adds to the water element in your bathroom. Cover it up with wood tiles or replace it with decors made from wood.

It will help you get motivated and it will contribute to the energy of your fame and reputation area. You can place a portrait of your favorite artists or people that inspire you.

All of these remedies are nothing if you do not put your intentions and manifestations to reality. Always give yourself time to reflect and think about your aims and goals. It is also recommended to think about how you can make yourself better in engaging with others.
