Fame and Reputation

The Fame and Reputation area - the south area of your feng shui bagua - is a very important energetic spot in any space. It is highly recommended to always have it activated in both your home and your office (or business).

It is especially important to have a strong, active fame area in your business because on a subconscious level the energy in this area either strengthens your public image or weakens it. 

Of course, each feng shui bagua area has to be balanced and activated, but some of them have a more immediate effect than others (especially if their feng shui is questionable).

The feng shui element of the south bagua area is fire, so the cures you will bring have to be either of the fire element or the element that nourishes it (wood feng shui element nourishes fire.)

The life area connected to the South bagua area of any space (or the top center if you are using the BTB bagua) is your fame and reputation, or, in a more exact translation, the Light Within. It is recommended to always express, at least in some of your fame area feng shui cures, the essence of your inner light. In other words, what do you want to be known for, what is the light you bring into this world? What is the essence of your Fame and Reputation?

Art or Images Expressing the Fame or Reputation You Want

Focus on finding art that really speaks to your heart about what you want to be known for. Be mindful about the colors in your chosen art, photos or images as feng shui cures. Avoid a strong presence of the wwater feng shui element colors in the fame/south bagua area.

Tall Lights

Considered an excellent feng shui cure for the fame bagua area of your home or office, lighting fixtures can come in any size or height when using them as a feng shui cure. However, a tall lamp is considered ideal for this purpose. Be sure that the size, look, and overall design of your light fixture work well with the design of your room and fits harmoniously with your surroundings.

Art With Wood or Fire Elemental Energy

There are many ways to creates good feng shui in the fame area of your home or office. One is to choose abstract images with predominantly fire element colors such as red, orange, purple and yellow, or art with the actual representation of fiery energy. Another is to choose earthy wood imagery, either depicting actual trees, plants, and forests, or art with predominantly wood element colors (green ​and brown).

Other Fire and Wood Element Objects and Colors

You can also paint the walls of your fame bagua area in any of the nourishing feng shui element colors of wood or fire (red, purple, pink, orange, and strong yellow), or use decor items in either wood or fire, like red candles, for example. Be mindful about using the right element shapes in order to further strengthen your south bagua area. A fireplace is excellent feng shui in the south bagua area, as it expresses both fire and wood energy.
