Easy Feng Shui for Your Office

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese science of balancing the energies of any given space to assure the health and good fortune of the people inhabiting the space. To help you get started with Feng Shui in your office, follow these rules and you’ll soon be functioning more effectively and with less stress!

Organize. Remove clutter on and around your desk and office for a clean flow of energy.

Desk Placement. Sit in the corner farthest from the entrance to the room to have a “command” position. Sit with your back toward a wall or corner for support while facing the room’s entrance; but your chair must not be directly in line with it.

Computer Location. Your computer should go in the north or west area of your office to enhance your creativity; or put it in the southeast if you use it to generate income.

Aquariums/Fountains. Place aquariums and fountains in the east, north or southeast. A small aquarium with black or blue fish in the north area of your desk or office will activate your business and career success.

Lighting. Provide good, comfortable, non-glare lighting. Of course, natural light is best.

Mirrors. Avoid mirrors in the office.

Decorative Elements. Decorate with plants, land and seascapes.

Balance. Use a good balance of yin and yang when decorating your workspace. Be sure to balance light and dark colors, soft and hard surfaces, and smooth and rough textures in your choice of window treatments, furniture and flooring.

Plants. Place a money tree, jade or prosperity plant in the southeast corner of your desk or room.

Focal Point. Have a red or purple focal point in your office or on your desk (opposite your chair).

Be Grateful. Before you start work each day, give thanks for your blessings, prosperity and abundance. Give to receive. Share generously with others.
