Feng Shui can make an immediate change by balancing the elements and using a map called the Bagua. The Bagua originates from the I Ching, or Book of Changes, an ancient Chinese Guide for living. Ba means 8 and Gua means sides. The Bagua is an octagonal shape. Its eight sides represent eight compass points, each governing a fundamental aspect of life. The Bagua Board is used as a map for any room.
