What are you known for? What do others perceive you to be? Every day, everything you do, how you behave, how you dress, how you talk, your actions and energy, shapes the way people view you. Whether your reputation is good or bad, it clings to you.
Our reputation is built over time, if yours isn’t what you’d like it to be, with strong intention and dedication, you can change it. Everything is connected, changing your reputation means changing your behavior, thoughts and actions. “The more you walk the talk, the faster your new fame and reputation will manifest.”
The Fame and Reputation area of the bagua is associated with your character and image. When we have a good reputation friendly relations spring up around us, supporting auspicious opportunities and synergistic connections. Our characteristics and accomplishments are illuminated. Feed the energy of this area with good intentions, good actions and honorable behavior and the spotlight will continue to shine on you.
To find your Fame and Reputation area, stand in the doorway to your home or room, as you face into the room the Fame and Reputation area is in the center back section of the space. (click here for a free Bagua map)
For many of us, our Fame and Reputation area is located in our bathroom- this isn’t ideal. Bathrooms have a lot of water energy and the Fame and Reputation area is associated with fire. To correct this, add elements of earth and wood. You can do this by painting the bathroom a soft golden shade and adding green rugs and towels. The addition of a healthy, live upward growing, plant placed near, but not over the toilet is a great way to bring in the wood element. Make sure the lighting in the bathroom is clear and bright.

Want to supercharge your reputation? Write your intention for how you’d like to be known, now and in the future. Write in your intention using current tense, and powerful affirmative language, (no wants, wishes, or hopes). For example: I am grateful that I am recognized and highly sought after for my work. Once you have your written intention, place it in the soil of a plant located in your Fame and Reputation area. Every time you water your plant you are feeding your intention!
The future is yours, take charge and make your reputation what you want it to be.
