Review the map clockwise, starting from the area in the center-left (9 o’clock) as you face into your space from the doorway.

As you review it, think about the parts of your business that might need your attention.

 

 

 

I’ve included several Feng Shui enhancements below to help you activate and anchor the energy of each sector.

    I’ve just discovered this and it is brilliant. I have an L shaped desk (classic office desk shape where I sit in the middle looking to the top left corner) and I was wondering how to deal with this as effectively the bottom right of the Bagua is missing and the bottom left is extended. Or do you just lie the Bagua map over the desk in the direction I am sitting (if you know whar I mean!).  Hope you get time to respond to this – I need some good luck for my business in 2012!

       Lay the Bagua over the main part of your desk.  You may also want to lay it over your entire office space, so the L-shaped part of it will then be included.  Hope this helps!

    Dear Ann,
    Where is the best place to put my clock (metal) in office and home. Thanks

    • AnnFengShui

      Hi Anastasia,
      Clocks are best placed where they can be seen when needed but do not dominate the room. They should not be the first thing you see when you enter a room. A Metal clock is best in the Helpful People/Travel or Children sectors of your space. You can also learn other ways to use Metal objects by searching on my blog. Thanks for a good question!

        Thank you :)

          You are most welcome, Anastasia!
