Work your way to success
Follow these simple tips to maximise the flow of positive energy at your place of work
Whether you work in a multi-storeyed corporate building or operate a business from home, your work space is where you spend a large chunk of your day. But is the chi ( positive energy) of your office and work station supportive and nourishing? Does it compliment your work or does it bring you misfortune?
To ensure success, money and overall prosperity spruce up your office/ work space with the following Feng Shui tips:
The easiest way to get bored and lethargic is to work while facing a blank wall. Move your table towards to face the main door and be in charge of the work situation.
Get a Bagua map drawn of your work space to determine the directions. Place a small waterfall or a picture of flowing water in the north to promote your career, get promoted etc. For income generation, place an upward facing plant ( like bamboo) in the south/ south east corner of your office.
De- clutter: Downsize and get rid of unused stuff and junk to promote free flowing circulation of chi. Make sure t he entrance i s welcoming and unobstructed with heaps of files and trash. Repair broken furniture, do away with cracked mirrors and glass and pay attention to anything that seems to diminish the energy. Ensure that there is ample space to move around.
Nature-friendly: Fresh air and sunlight can do wonders to one’s motivation and productivity levels. Keep fresh flowers and an indoor potted plant within sight. Artificial flowers, wilting or dead plants are shar chi (negative energy) and should not be kept in office. However if keeping ‘live’ plants is not an option, the next best thing is a photograph or painting depicting greenery.
Lights, sound, action: Sounds can influence our level of calmness. Open the windows to let in some fresh air and listen to the rustle of the trees, chirping of the birds, etc.
Ergonomics: Keep a rectangular wooden desk to enhance creativity. Scientists and investigators would benefit most from a round metallic desk. It helps promote clarity.
If you are into communication, arts or in the music business, a glass table top is ideal for you. Offices, political and financial institutions can profit from a square ‘earth’ desk which is made of marble, concrete, granite etc. The author is a feng shui consultant, director of Spirit n Soulkraft, tarot card reader, numerologist, palmist and a holistic healer.
