The office is super-important in Feng Shui because of its role in creating and maintaining your financial well-being and your family’s health and welfare.
Everything from the position of the desk to the artwork and color on the walls plays a role.
Here are six practical Feng Shui tips for creating a workspace that gives you so much support, you’ll actually enjoy being there 😉
1. Create a clutter-free space. A clutter-free office welcomes in positive “chi” energy, bringing good financial health along with it. Whatever it takes, in small doses or large, set up your office it’s easy to move around, work, think, and be creative.
2. Place your desk in the Command position. The importance of the Command Position cannot be overstated: taking control of your space will put you in control of your success.
3. Balance Yin and Yang energies. Offices need a greater proportion of Yang (masculine) energy, and less of Yin (feminine). Create an atmosphere of calm productivity by making sure your lighting is good and the colors are lively (but not jarring).
4. Use the Bagua Map to bring Intention to your workspace or desk. Using this key Feng Shui tool gives you an opportunity to focus on and enhance your reputation, your important business relationships, your income and much more. (Download a Bagua Map for Business here.)
5. Identify the business you’re in. Whether you’re in a cubicle, a corner office or at a desk at home, identifying the reason you have this office will inspire and motivate you to do your best work.
Put up a big sign with your logo, post your mission statement, hang pictures of successes you’ve had. This small but powerful engine will keep you going through thick and thin.
6. Balance Feng Shui’s Five Elements. Elemental balance can be created in an office with ease:
- a strong vigorous plant for the growth energy of Wood;
- good lighting and merit awards to light up your business reputation with the Fire element;
- square shapes or earth-colored elements for a stable business environment with the Earth element;
- round shapes, metal picture frames for the Metal element’s aspects of organization and planning;
- and black elements (like a black file cabinet) or irregular shapes for the important communication aspects of Water.
Your office must support you in ways both visible and invisible. Thinking consciously about it with good Feng Shui pays off in ways that benefit you and everyone in your financial circle.
