Hmmm... interesting reply. The garage was included in the map of my house because it is attached and someone advised me to do that. Actually, one person who has experience with feng shui and on a feng shui site blog I was reading the garage should be included because it is attached. If it should not be attached, then I guess I would have to re-do my entire bagua map.
The bagua areas of South, Southeast, and East are all "in the garage" From what I read these areas represent wealth and abundance, the south fame and reputation. This is why I came to the conclusion that the underlining concern is the sectors I mentioned earlier. So are you saying that I should not consider this area part of my home?
I realize Feng Shui is very complex, but I'm also feeling like I'm not learning anything about what to do. Or where to go to get some concrete answers. This is why I asked about hiring a Feng Shui expert, not because it was mentioned. I was simply asking how to go about finding one.
I'm attaching a copy of my floor plan with bagua areas marked. Maybe this will help you understand my questions. Let me know.
