Today, we’re talking about the center square of the invisible tick-tack-toe board that is the bagua map of your home. It’s rather different from the other squares in that it doesn’t correspond with its own unique energies as much as it’s a place where all the other energies and areas merge and mix. Ideally, it’s about emptiness and openness. Specific imagery is not necessary, although if there’s a place where you want to hang a picture, something that depicts openness and earthiness is best. For example, an open field or desert, a simple square pattern (squares are aligned with the earth element), or something symbolically open and simple, such as a square canvas painted with a light earthy color such as buttery yellow, tan, or dark cream.
It’s ideal for all areas to be clutter-free, naturally, but this area is one area in which it is especially important. That’s so that the holistic interweaving of the other eight areas can flow freely and in an unhampered way.
When this area is ideally activated (which, again, is more about simplicity and open space than the other areas), your life will be more likely to be in holistic balance. Each area can nourish and energize each other area. You might imagine each bagua area to be like an internal organ – you want each to be healthy and vibrant, but you also want each to interact with each other organ in the healthiest of ways. This is true health. And this is what this area is about.
