iVillage has recruited Karen Rauch Carter, feng shui consultant and author of the best-selling Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life to give you a fun, fast and results-oriented introduction to this ancient art. Karen has outlined quick feng shui strategies to help you attract the chi you need to have a happy and healthy life. You only need to know two things to get started:
  • What is a bagua and how do I use it?  A bagua is a feng shui road map. It divides your home into nine sections (called guas) that correspond to the nine main areas of your life. The graphic below is a representation of a bagua. Your front door opens up into the skills & knowledge, career or helpful people gua. From there, you can divide your space up into nineparts and find each of your other guas. Learn more about the bagua here.
