The single most important thing you need to do for good Feng Shui is to complete the floor plan.
A complete floor plan is square or rectangular.
An incomplete floor plan is L-shaped, C-shaped or has an irregular shape.
People living in homes that are incomplete tend to make excuses for how things are instead of making plans for what they want for their lives.
If you can afford it, and are able to accept guidance, the best way to do this is with a Nine Steps to Feng Shui® Consultation. Only consultants trained in the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® System can help you complete the floor plan in a way that considers all the factors affected by missing portions, such as missing whole life areas from the Feng Shui bagua map.
If your budget is tight, or if you just like to do things on your own, without any guidance, I have created images designed to complete the floor plan for each of the Feng Shui Nine Life Areas.
Complete Your Floor Plan with Guidance
There are three ways in which you can do this with guidance or have me to do it for you:
1 – Get my book Feng Shui Your Own Home here. Chapter one of this book details how to complete the floor plan from the inside (most important) and from the outside.
2 – Watch the videos in the Room by Room Membership Site here. The content of this site organizes Feng Shui content room by room. But there’s also a section on the Feng Shui Nine Life Areas and what to do when a life area is missing, and how to complete the life area, from the inside and on the outside.
3 – Get a personal online consultation of your home with me here. My personal consultations are called Feng Shui Immersion Journeys. These consultations follow the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® System and Step 1 is to complete the floor plan. The first thing I do for you when you join is to apply the Feng Shui bagua map to your floor plan to see what life areas are missing (most homes have missing areas). Then l advise you on the best ways to complete the missing areas, so that you not only correct the missing portion, but also enhance the life area where it is located. Go here to learn more.
Complete the Floor Plan on the Inside and the Outside
Floor plans need to be completed from the inside and the outside.
Completing the floor plan from the inside is much more important than completing the floor plan from the outside.
To complete the floor plan from the inside we use:
• mirrors and
• images with long distance perspective like these.
Completing a floor plan from the inside by using mirrors is tricky. There are a number of things that could go wrong. I don’t recommend you do it without help.
Completing the Floor Plan with Images
Completing the floor plan using images is much easier.
When you complete the floor plan with an image that has long distance perspective it is important that you choose an image that goes well with the life area that is missing according to the Bagua map.
I have created a series of wall tiles that can help you with this. The image you choose to complete the floor plan doesn’t have to be large, it just has to create the impression that the space continues into the life area you’re trying to complete. See which tiles to use depending on what life area is missing and on which wall to place them here. It is important that you choose an image that not only creates the impression of depth but also goes well with the energy of the life area that is missing.
The image to complete the floor plan doesn’t have to be large to fulfill it’s purpose. However, sometimes it is better for Feng Shui interior design to choose a larger image.
I have created a collection in my new Red Bubble store with images that work great for completing floor plans. Some are photos I have taken in outings with my family, others are paintings I have painted for this purpose, and some are a combination of photographs with digital art.
I put together this collection to help you Feng Shui your home with products. If you click on each image it tells you what life area can be completed with that image. It also gives you the option of getting it in different sizes and on different materials, such as a canvas print, art print, photo print, metal print and even as a post card. Check out the collection here.
Unless you are working with me or another Nine Steps to Feng Shui® Consultant, get one of the images above or below to complete your floor plan. (If you try to choose an image on your own you may end up messing up another aspect of Feng Shui.) Click on any image to go to the store:
