Feng Shui Fame / Reputation
By Jessie Kim
If you are looking to get the recognition that you deserve and believe that Feng Shui may help, then you need to read on.
I am a 3rd generation Feng Shui expert and have helped thousands of people add harmony and balance to their lives.
Fame & Reputation Area Overview
Based upon the principles of Feng Shui, when improvements are made to the Fame & Reputation side of your surroundings in combination with improvements made to the complementing areas, your reputation will be vastly improved.
This deals primarily with how people perceive you. Do people perceive you as successful and want to be near you? Do they see you as dishonest and avoid you?
Pay some attention in this area and be perceived the way you want.
- Primary Element: Fire
- Best Color: Red
- Best Shapes: Pointed or Triangular
- Complementary Items: Green, Wood, Columns
- Destructive Items: Black, Water, Free-Flowing
Get Your Full Credit and Recognition
The Fame and Reputation side in Feng Shui is not just for Hollywood movie stars and athletes. All of us need fame and reputation in some respect.
You should be recognized (fame) for your work and to get full credit (reputation) for the work you did.
This corner is the far back middle corner of your space. Be it for work, school, a relationship or with your family, this is the area to enhance to get the full recognition you deserve and want.
This area also works hand-in-hand with the Career / Business / Life Path section of your space (front center part of the space nearest the front door), which is the directly opposite the Fame & Reputation side of your space.
Be sure to enhance both of these sides simultaneously to get the results you desire, especially with respect to your fame and reputation at work.
Who strives to be second-best? This is not the area for pairs of things like you would in your Relationships / Love / Marriage corner.
Rather, this area is all about individual accomplishments. Don’t be ashamed to put up that huge trophy, even if it was from high school. This is the area where you’ll also want to show off your degrees, awards, letters of recognition, etc.
Don’t be greedy, though. You can let all of your family members share this space to show off their accomplishments, as well.
Burn it Up!
The element for Fame & Reputation in Feng Shui is fire. If you are going to have a fireplace or a candelabra (several candles in one place), this is the best place to do it.
Let the fire burn for your fame and reputation.
Moreover, anything that represents fire is good here. For instance, red is the best color to use, as it represents fire in Feng Shui.
Additionally, pointy objects, such as cactus, rose bushes (because of the thorns), stars, and triangles are wonderful here, as they also represent fire.
You’ll also want some things here that will cause a spark… figuratively, of course. More on that later.
Feed That Fire!
When you want fire to burn, you need to give it some fuel. The best complementary Feng Shui element to use in Fame & Reputation to keep your fire burning is wood.
Like always, you can go literal or figurative with this. So, this side of your home or office would ideally have a wooden table or desk, a tall woody plant, a painting or picture of a forest, and individual frames made of wood.
Notice that those objects were singular, by the way.
Back Door in Line with Front Door
Remember that you want Chi or energy to move throughout your home. As we discussed previously in the Career / Business / Life Path Feng Shui section, it is very important to attract energy to your front door and make sure there are no obstacles to prevent it from moving along the Bagua.
Also quite important and now famously known in Feng Shui is that you should not have your front door in line with a back door or window. As an example, if you left both doors open, a cross-breeze would travel straight between the front and back. The same happens with Chi without allowing it to have traveled through the other sections of the Bagua.
Ideally, you should not have a door or window here.
If you already have a door or window in the back, don’t worry, as there are cures.
First, I must implore you to actually use your front door on a more regular basis than your back one, even if it is inconvenient to do so.
Now, if you have a door, sliding glass door, or window in the back of your space, then you can hang a red curtain or decorate it with some red stained glass. You could also hang a crystal with red string directly in front of the back door.
All of these cures in Feng Shui should have the intended effect of deflecting your energy to stay within your home for now.
Surprisingly Not Dangerous Items
In Feng Shui, there are many objects that are typically dangerous in your home if left in just about any other Gua. For instance, we already talked about fireplaces being okay here.
Also, if you have any weapons in your house (not the best thing to have in at home, but…), then this is the area you want to keep them.
And now for that spark I alluded to before. This is an ideal spot for electronics, such as your bright light bulbs and television.
This would also be an ideal spot for things like wood-fire stoves.
Remember, this is where you’re burning fire!
Symbolize Your Goals
The Fame & Reputation area in the Feng Shui Bagua is the best spot for a physical symbol of a future goal, particularly a career-oriented one.
I will use an example for my aspiring actor friends out there. Try making yourself a picture of a Hollywood Walk of Fame Star with your name on it and put it in this area. Every day, you should admire it and envision yourself receiving that Star.
Get yourself a lookalike Oscar statue with your name and “Best Actor” engraved on it. Imagine your fans shouting your name as paparazzi follow your every move and take pictures of you as you come out of that famous restaurant on Hollywood Blvd.
Well, the paparazzi is optional, but you get the picture.
Embrace these thoughts every day!
In office settings, make sure that your desk is facing the door and your back is supported by a solid wall.
Think of it as your solid fame and reputation to back you up. This back wall is where you want to display any diplomas, awards and certificates you have earned.
If you don’t have these items or this is not a good place to display these items, then you can hang a picture or painting of a tall mountain to support your back, such that your reputation is as high as that mountain.
Just make sure that the mountain is not a snow covered mountain, as that would be putting ice on your fire.
Unique Situations or Dangerous Items
Do you have a unique situation at your home or office? Perhaps the Fame & Reputation Gua is missing or it inherently has some sort of dangerous item, such as a door, window, bathroom, ice machine, stairway, or garage?
Do you have a unique situation at your home or office?
Are missing the Fame & Reputation Area from your floor plan or does it have a dangerous item, such as a door, window, ice machine, bathroom, stairway, or garage?
Are you looking to boost your fame & reputation?
