Feng Shui for the Office

From the Author of Small Changes, Dynamic Results! Feng Shui for the Western World

Welcome to my series on Feng Shui room by room – Feng Shui for the Office.

Creating an inspiring work environment is an important factor in generating more abundance in your life. The more your spaces uplift and stimulate you, the more time you want to spend there and the more energy you put into what you are doing.

We spend a lot of our life at work. I don’t need to tell you how uninspiring an office full of faceless, featureless cubicles can be and how drastically that lowers morale.

Whether you work in a home office or in a big corporation, you can still do something to make your workspace more inspiring for yourself and raise your energy level or chi.

When you feel safe, comfortable and happy in your space your energy field expands. As a result people

want to be around you. When people are drawn to you they naturally want to spend time with you and bring you opportunities. You thus might find doors starting to open, blockages starting to unblock and people offering you options that often translate into more money and more general abundance.

In this article we are going to investigate simple and inexpensive ways to revitalize your workspace by shifting the chi.

It's all about ventilation and harmony

I have a friend that has always used a small round mirror on his computer because his desk doesn't face the door and couldn't be moved. When he first started using it, he got lots of comments -- all good. Soon, some others did the same since their desks all faced toward the wall and not the door. No one, not even my friend knew it was Feng Shui until years later. I'm looking forward to more in your 'room by room' series. Feng Shui is fascinating to me. Thank you!

A rear view mirror? Seriously?!?! I can't think of a better way to ruin your workspace than to add tacky, sticky junk that ruins your furniture, walls, or electronics.

And having your desk face the window may have been fine back in the day when we spent our time looking down at what we were writing on a page, but in the era of computer monitors, it is a fabulous way to give yourself eyestrain from having too much light shining directly into your eyes as you try to view your screen.

This is NOT feng shui!!! And if you want to make more sense of your room, you'd do better to just use a little bit of common sense than to listen to this advice.

No way.
To position my desk so that sit facing the door into the room? No way !
I am safe inside my home, and I position my desk so that I can see the trees,the flowers the meadows and birds flying by.
Yes we all need to feel safe but this sounds pretty paranoid to me.

Feng shui does not hold all the answers. Intention and dedication is an important factor in any endeavour, people have to realize feng shui is not a quick fix. It takes time to apply feng shui in anyone's life, just as meditation takes years of good intention and dedication.

can an office cube have too many plants and mirrors?

Darryl, I am sorry you disagree with me but you clearly do not understand that there are different schools of Feng Shui. You practice Compass School Feng Shui which is different than Form School Feng Shui which is what I have studied for many years and practice and teach. Form School Feng Shui does not use the Compass but uses Front Door Bagua and rocks and stones are considered the metal element. I do not appreciate you saying these are dangerous or wrong just because you have studied a different school of Feng Shui.
