At­tract pos­i­tive en­ergy with this an­cient Chi­nese ap­proach.

Glamour (South Africa) - - Work -

Imag­ine your desk­top di­vided into a nine-part grid. Choose ar­eas of your life that need a lit­tle boost and use the fol­low­ing tips to at­tract good en­ergy to those ar­eas. Don’t get too car­ried away, as clut­ter blocks creativ­ity and half of your desk­top should be clear at all times. And don’t fo­cus on all nine sec­tions; in­stead, se­lect two to three pri­or­i­ties. The back left corner of the desk rep­re­sents pros­per­ity. At­tract money and abun­dance by decorating this area with a plant, a valu­able item like a lap­top, or even a jar of change. Want more than 15 min­utes in the spot­light? The space for fame is in the cen­tre back of the grid. Place your busi­ness cards or a name­plate here.

To find love, fo­cus on the back right corner. If you are sin­gle, dec­o­rate it with a fresh flower to bring a spark of ro­mance into your life. If you al­ready have a spe­cial some­one, place a photo of the two of you here. It may be a tad cliché, but a fam­ily photo fits well on the left cen­tre of your desk. A wooden frame en­hances the en­ergy of this par­tic­u­lar space. Sit­ting at a desk all day does lit­tle for your health. Keep the cen­tre area of your desk free of clut­ter to at­tract good en­ergy. And re­mem­ber to take short breaks through­out the day to re­duce stress and main­tain fo­cus. Boost your creativ­ity by adding in­spi­ra­tion to the right cen­tre of

the grid. As­pir­ing writ­ers, place a jour­nal or book here. A blank sketch­book is ideal for artists, while a metal ob­ject will work well for oth­ers. Look­ing to gain wis­dom? Fo­cus on the front left corner of the desk. Place a ref­er­ence book here. Front and cen­tre is the ca­reer space – def­i­nitely ap­pro­pri­ate for a desk. Keep this spot free of clut­ter and dis­play af­fir­ma­tions or mo­ti­va­tional quotes. If you need a lit­tle help from your friends, fo­cus on the front right sec­tion. This is a good place to keep your phone or a tablet. This area also rep­re­sents travel, so a travel guide or a photo of a dream hol­i­day would also work well here.
