9 Feng Shui Tips for Work

By Erica Sofrina, Author of Small Changes, Dynamic Results! Feng Shui for the Western World.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that if you love working in your office, you will spend more quality time there. And, if work feels like play, you will be more creative and prosperity will naturally flow.

In Feng Shui, the “Career” area is about doing our life work. It is not about work as drudgery. It is about doing vibrant work that flows from our deepest core.Feng Shui offers some simple, practical, and inexpensive solutions that will support you in arranging a work space that inspires creativity, productivity, and prosperity.

As a Life Coach as well as a Feng Shui Consultant, I work with many people who want to make a difference in the world. Whether they provide coaching services, sell health-related products, or are a holistic health practitioner, their vision encompasses enhancing the health and happiness of others and the planet. This is why arranging an office that encourages you to spend time there is directly connected to your vision.

Make sure your office reflects your passion, incorporating objects, words and symbols representing that represent them and eliminating anything that does not.

This is not the place for lots of family photos, objects from other hobbies or past rewards not related to your current work.This is your palette for creating the work that is uniquely you. Treat it as your sacred space.

A happy, light-filled office space!

1. Clear the clutter: Often home offices are a dumping ground of all of those bits of things you can’t find a place for. Be diligent and don’t allow anything in the space that does not support your vision, uplift your spirit, or is necessary and functional to your current work. If you work at a company, the shape of your office is broadcasting a message about your competency. Make sure it is sending the message you want!

2. Get organized: If you are spending half your time looking for things, you are losing precious time. If you are not good at this, hire an professional organizer to do the initial set-up – budget permitting. If you can’t pay for it, offer a trade of services to aá friend, colleague or family member who has good organizing skills.

3 Arrange your desk so that it is in the empowered position: This is where you can see the door from the desk but are not in direct alignment with the door. This will make a huge difference in your ability to feel in control of your destiny. If you can’t move your desk, get a mirror and place it so that you can see who is coming in the door. These look like rear-view mirrors and stick right to your monitor andá can be found at auto parts stores.

Great idea about the placement of a mirror since I'd rather be looking out a window than through an interior door during the day.
