Do you know what your reputation is in
The “fame area” in Feng Shui relates to your future.
This includes our reputation and being recognized by our peers
for what we do well. It represents our progression in life and
how people see us in the community. When this area is in balance,
one will be able to progress rapidly up the ladder, will enjoy
a good reputation, and be well liked and well known.
This area is found by
Dividing each area into 9 squares, imagine a tic tac toe grid
over each entire floor level, each individual room and the entire
property. The fame area is on the far center square of the tic
tac toe grid when you view that area from it’s main entrance.
The Fame area
is ruled by the Fire Element.
Good things to have in this area are the color red, fire elements
like candles (especially a pair of red candles) that you light
regularly, a light, lamp or lantern, a red plant or flowers and
/or art work showing red colors.
Plants sustain and create steady growth. Especially
beneficial are hardy red flowering plants like geraniums. Additionally,
evergreens are the best Feng Shui wherever they show up in your
yard. The fact that they stay green all year around is especially
Other related items good for this area are - a
decorative drum or a small trumpet to herald in lucky developments.
An ordinary large framed mirror (convex is stronger) is good for
doubling the amount energy. This is a good place to burn incense
Any thing that catches the sun works well here.
Items with mirrors that send the light around the room each time
the sun connects - expands plans, ideas & opportunities. Mirrors
capture light, which belongs to the fire element and will expand
your future plans.
Windmills that catch the wind and spin are great
for the outdoor area in this placement. If there is a window in
this region, place the windmills just outside in a window box
or hang in a tree where you can see the spinning from the inside.
Remember metaphor and symbols loom large in feng
shui. Placing a star in each room, no matter how it shows up is
a good way to enhance fame and recognition. Stars shine wherever
you walk. Suns light the way. A scroll attracts good fortune toward
If this area is missing
you could be stuck. You may experience no progression in life
and probably can’t decide what to do. A missing fame area
may also make you very sensitive to what others think and lower
If the area is extended,
it would be easier to get a promotion. It is also more likely
that you will become famous; people will know your name and business
within the community even if you have not met them. You will tend
to enjoy a good reputation.
A metal/crystal mobile or hanging combines the
elements of fire & metal. Hanging a multi-faceted crystal
in a window in this area will help your ideas for the future come
to fruition. This is an especially good cure if you are an inventor
or a creative “ideas person.” Best used for making
your ideas pay well.
Pictures or photos that feature a balloon rising
up in the air, a flock of birds flying or even a rocket speeding
through the atmosphere to propel your career forward fast and
enhance inspiration are especially good.
In your office
the Fame area is especially important. An image depicting what
you want to be known for or anything that represents what you
want your reputation to be is ideal. What do you want to be famous
for? A picture of a mentor, you graduating, or being recognized
for what you do well, winning awards is a great idea in this placement.
Essential oils or scented candles can be very
advantageous particularly if nothing is happening in your life.
Best used for creating activity in your career, especially if
you need to be noticed. Eucalyptus, orange, mint, rosemary, pine,
cinnamon, geranium, ginger, nutmeg, pepper, peppermint are the
best single oils to use.

first when it comes to your business. Magnify Your Purpose, Abundance,
Into the Future, Legacy, Live with Passion are good essential
oil blends to use. These blends are created by Young Living Essential
