It’s that time of year where students of all ages are getting ready to finish up year end school projects and study for exams. A lot of people really stress out at this time of year, whether they’re in grade 9 or completing a PhD. Enhancing the Knowledge and Spirituality area of the bagua works not just for exams and studying but also for things such try-outs, auditions, or even submitting book proposals. For example, my son is now a professional ballet dancer. When he was finishing high school, of course he wanted to do well on his final high school exams, but he was more concerned about doing really well on his auditions for post-secondary training. So we made sure he was prepared, physically, mentally and environmentally.
Knowledge and Spirituality Area
The Knowledge and Spirituality area of your home is associated with reflection, meditation, inner guidance, learning and studying. The energy in this area is about cultivating an intelligent mind, both academically and spiritually. When you’re trying to help your kids achieve something academically, ideally you’d be able to set up a study space in the NE corner of your home. In that area you will want a solid desk or table to work at, textbooks and other study materials, school supplies and a computer, laptop or tablet. However, it may not always be possible or practical to set things up in that area of the home because your Knowledge area may end up being in a kitchen or bathroom or even a garage. An alternative option is to choose the NE area of your child’s bedroom to set up their knowledge area.
Below are some tips on how to give your kids the motivation, clarity and memory skills to ace those final exams and achieve academic and career goals, no matter what area of the home your knowledge area is.
Another really popular feng shui item for education excellence is the 7-tiered pagoda, also known as the “education tower”. It is believed to:
Place it beside the bed or on the desk to help improve concentration and mental capabilities, allowing for better memory and accomplishment on exams
Our lives don't happen in silos so when you’re trying to achieve a goal with the help of feng shui, it’s often helpful to enhance other areas of your home at the same time. To deepen knowledge and learning, do some work activating the helpful people area of your home to get support from teachers, mentors and friends. To enhance career aspirations, enhance the career area and fame area, which will help you prepare to be recognized in your field.
