Something You Need to know About the Partnership Gua
The third Case File in our Feng Shui Storyboard chronicles the story of a young mother and her daughter.
The mother called because her young daughter will not sleep in her “very pretty” bedroom. She climbs into bed with her mom every night, frightened and crying. Even during the day, the child is afraid to enter her bedroom. The mother cannot understand why the child is distraught – and why she, as a loving mother, is becoming less and less even-tempered. Both are exhausted and anxious. The environment is tense.
There are numerous difficult design details to consider in the floor plan, but there is one that speaks to the bond between mother and daughter. On this Valentine’s day, when we celebrate our romantic relationships, let’s expand our understanding of the Partnership gua to include the bonds between women of all ages and generations.
Consider the following:
The stairway sits in Partnership of the main ba-gua. The up-and-down movement that occurs on a regular basis can create instability between a mother and daughter. The mother/daughter bond is definitely at risk in this house.
It is important to place this detail at the top of your list of adjustments. You will set the foundation upon which to rebuild the bond as the mother makes the adjustments and deals with the anxiety created by splits, dead doors, empty doors, lack of command, a yin park next door, and a master bed over a stove – and, oh, so much more.
As women, we rely upon the stability of our connections. Look to correct any difficult design details that imperil this stability. Do not miss these loving connections as you focus upon the romantic relationships we so readily identify with the Partnership gua.
