You’ve heard the phrase, “it’s not what you do, it’s who you know”. Bringing helpful people into your life (and keeping them there) is vital to your livelihood and mental well-being alike! Think of the friends you have who make you laugh and keep you going. Or the acquaintance who connected you with your last job. If you need a hand up or a more satisfying social life, this is the area of your home you want to focus on. If you’re new to Feng Shui, first read the overview article so you understand where I’m going with this.
Helpful People: Front Right of Bagua
Located in the front right area of your home or room, the element for Helpful People is heaven. There are people here on earth who act as angels and help you when you need it most. Sometimes, just a person in the grocery checkout line who flashes you a smile is enough! Attract this kind of positive interaction with people by placing items that make you think of the sky here. Use the bagua as a handy blueprint to determine where this area lies in your home.

Look for the Silver Lining
Silver picture frames or pictures of your dearest friends would go well in this area of your home. Use gray, silver, or black and white items to attract energy and increase powerful connections. Some suggestions to enhance this area are:
- Healthy plants in a high place
- Light or lamps that beam upward
- Inspiring artwork (maybe one of these double exposure designs?)
- Spiritual symbols that symbolize your spiritual connections
Take the High Road
Keep the energy high and remove any photos of people who hinder your progress or bring you down emotionally. If you are in a career that depends on networking of any kind, keep this place clean and free of clutter. You want this space to depict energy, intuition, guidance, and good luck.
Pay it Forward
Remember that an important principle in Feng Shui is that whatever you give, you will receive in return. Be sure to offer your assistance and look for ways to serve others. As a result, you will be attracting the same benefits in return.
