Thinking about how the world sees you – your reputation in the world – the growth of your business – your name and visibility? Then consider the Feng Shui gua of Fame and Reputation. Enhance anytime you want to boost this energy and build your credentials and personal strength. Read a case study, by Feng Shui professional, Carmel Malone-Quane.
The fame and reputation sector of the ba gua is located in the back center of the home. (facing the home at the front door, laying out a tic-tac-toe grid on your building.

When this gua is activated, one can live with clarity and integrity and thus truly live their best life. It is associated with the element of fire, animal energy, the number 9 and triangular shapes.
The Case Study…
Carmel Malone-Quane had a client who wanted to attract new windows and also mentioned her eyes were gritty. Carmel immediately recognized this was an issue with the Fame gua, as it relates to the eyes, and windows represent our vision.
The Fame and Reputation gua of the home included a bathroom. Fame is represented by the fire element; whereas the bathroom is a strong water element, so having a bathroom here was a bit of a challenge. The client was on a fixed income and didn’t expect any new windows anytime soon. She needed to apply for a grant and had previously received funds, so had little hope she would get new windows. Believing the money will come once the right intentions are places, Carmel suggested to her client to place intentions to get the money for the windows.
Specific recommendations included:
- Clean her current windows as they were a little dusty.
- Place some earth elements in the bathroom to dam the water, she liked shells and stones.
- Add a plant in a red pot, which represents the Wood Element, to feed the fire element of this gua.
- Bring in some red color, here we added a lovely red floral blind.
- The client reinforced her intent and the let go of any attachment to the outcome.
All of the adjustments worked seamlessly with her design and were easy to implement.
Approximately two months later the client received a letter, out-of-the-blue, stating she was getting new windows.
Her eyes improved almost immediately.
This is the power of our intent and adding some feng shui adjustments to our space to attract what we want.
