Fame & Reputation
This area is exciting. It’s your FIRE! This is your inspiration and clarity! Yes, bring it on!
Even though this area is called the Fame & Reputation area, it’s not really about being famous. It’s about recognition. How would you like the world to see you? What do you want to be recognized for? What makes you unique? Are you struggling to get “seen”? Would you like more respect? This Bagua area is your ticket to success!

Gain respect from your spouse, partner, family, friends, co-workers, colleagues and all people—even people you don’t know

Discovering your space…
What is your subconscious trying to communicate through your living space?
While comfortably sitting in the Fame and Reputation area of your home, take a long look around. Make the following observations:
What do you see? What room are you in?
How does the space FEEL? How do YOU feel in the space?
Is the space clean, kept and open? Or is it cluttered, dirty and closed?
What do you like about the space? What do you dislike about the space?
Does the space reflect your level of inspiration?
Does the space reflect your highest level of integrity?
Does the space reflect your highest level of self-respect?
Take a minute to just to sit and be quiet, look and listen, what is the space trying to tell you? What have you been afraid to notice? Write about your observations.

Enhancements for the Fame & Reputation area
Power words: INSPIRATION, ADMIRATION, RESPECT, CLARITY, RECOGNITION, LEADERSHIP
Colors: RED! Red anything, and everything red!
Fire: The Fame & Reputation area is ruled by fire. Bringing this element into your Fame & Reputation space is extremely important—without burning your house down, of course! It can be achieved with candles—preferably red candles—even when they are not lit. Fireplaces are perfect for this area, so lucky you if you already have one there. Also, wood stoves, cooking stoves and ranges are great.
Light: Lamps are perfect in this area, especially if you can’t introduce fire. Shine the spotlight on YOU and watch your reputation grow.
Plants: Tall, healthy plants will help your good reputation grow and grow.
Fresh Flowers: Red or orange arrangements attract good attention.
Objects of Recognition: Awards, diplomas, certificates and newspaper articles that highlight you or your work in a positive light should be stored or displayed in this area, as well as credentials (such as diplomas), “thank you” cards and acknowledgements.
Artwork: Paintings with red and movement, photos with red or fire, photos of people you admire and respect and want to be like.
Fame & Reputation area DON’Ts
If you want this area working at its best, please make sure the Fame & Reputation space is clear of the following:
Water puts out fire. My kitchen sink is in my fame area. I have red candles on my window sill that I light every night, especially while I’m doing the dishes, to keep my flame alive.
Similarly, the colors black and blue strongly represent water. My countertops are blue, so every night, after the dishes are finished, I lay out the red dish towel to dry on the blue countertop, to counteract so much water in my Fame & Reputation area.
Mirrors, glass and crystal also represent water. If you can, clear them from this space.
Dirt, dust, grime
Anything broken or leaking
Dead plants or dried Flowers
Anything that doesn’t represent the person you wish to be known for now or in the future
