People who work spend most of their waking time at work, so it’s important to have a peaceful place to work. Working in an office with good Feng Shui makes a huge difference in how productive people are and how well they get along with each other. It makes coming to work fun.
Harmony at work reduces things that can make people unhappy, like being rude, playing politics, and spreading rumours. Good Feng Shui in your own space can help you get noticed and move up in your career.
Given all of these benefits, who wouldn’t want to make sure their workspace has good Feng Shui?
1. Keep an Eye Behind You
If someone wants to hurt you, it will be easier for them to sneak up on you and hit you from behind when you aren’t looking. So when feng shui tells you over and over to watch your back, it makes sense. Make sure that where you sit gives you good back support.
If you work at a desk, make sure that the back of your chair is facing a solid wall. Sitting with your back to the door is one of the worst things that can happen. But it can also be bad to have a window right behind you. Close these windows with heavy blinds and put up signs of success in your career behind you.
Those are a painted mountain, a turtle, and a dragon tortoise. It’s best to choose one where the landscape isn’t awash in a sea of water.
2. Never Sit Facing A Wall
A desk that faces a wall makes it hard to get a promotion. If you can’t move your desk, hang a picture of a landscape with a field in it to represent your own “bright hall.” Or, put a picture of a phoenix on the wall in front of you to show that you have a lot of options. This will counteract the bad effects of facing a wall and give you a reason to switch to a desk with better Feng Shui.
3. Reduce office politics
There is no better weapon than a rooster to use against office politics. Put a rooster with a large beak and comb to ward off coworkers who insist on using underhanded methods to achieve their goals. Another fitting emblem is the jade cicada.
4. Put out a crystal ball to absorb bad chi
A crystal ball acts as an energy filter and cleanses all the negative energy. Crystal spheres are the best way to make sure that everyone is getting along. Put six different sizes in the space you have chosen for yourself. This will make sure that the time you spend at work is pleasant and useful. In this time of 8, crystal spheres have a lot of power.
5. Avoid Confrontational Setting Arrangement
Set up your desk so that you are not facing someone else. It’s better to have your back on someone than to be facing them directly because facing someone all the time will make you and that person feel more and more like fighting. Even if you work for someone else and can’t change how the office is set up, try to make sure that at least your desk is set up so that this doesn’t happen.
6. Pick the Right Chair
How well you do in your career will be affected by the chair you sit in at work. Get an ergonomic chair if you have to sit in it for long periods of time, like if you work at a desk. This will keep your back and neck from getting sore. This is because they are made to help you sit for long periods of time without getting tired or uncomfortable.
On the other hand, chairs for guests shouldn’t be too comfortable, so that they don’t stay too long. Choose sofa sets and settees that aren’t too comfortable for meeting rooms for the same reason. The chi energy that comes from harder sofa sets is also more active and better for the workplace.
7. Don’t sit right by the door
If you sit too close to the door, especially the front door in an open-plan office, you leave yourself open to danger. If the way your office is set up means that you have to be closer to the door than other people, try to sit so that you don’t have your back on the door. Make sure you can always see the door so you can see when people are coming. Make sure you have all the support symbols you need to counteract the bad effects of sitting at such a desk. When you get a chance to change desks, do it!
8. Clean up the mess
Your work will slow down the most if your desk is a mess. Make it a point to spend 10 minutes every morning cleaning up your workspace. Don’t let papers, books, and office supplies clutter up your space. People who say they like an “organized mess” have never had a clean desk. They will be amazed at how much more productive they can be if they clear off their desks.
9. Beware Of Hidden Storage
When you’re cleaning off your desk, it’s easy to just throw unwanted papers and documents in drawers and cabinets where they can’t be seen. Even though this makes your desk look better at first glance, over time it can lead to stagnant energy that hurts your success at work without anyone noticing. Don’t forget about your cabinets and drawers. Make it a point to go through your drawers and put things away every now and then. Don’t keep things you don’t need.
10. Stay away from things with sharp edges
Make sure there are no sharp corners that point right at where you sit. Sharp edges are like poison arrows that shoot harmful shar chi or “killing breath” at you. The killing energy sent your way could make you sick, get cheated on, or get blamed for everything. It could also hurt your career.
11. Work in a well-lit area
The lighting in an office that is well-designed is a sign that it is well-designed. The best light comes from outside, so have as many windows as you can. But in places where desks are, half-length windows are better than full-length ones. Full-length windows let in too much yang energy, which makes it hard to focus and makes you feel like you’re in danger. Offices in basements with few or no windows aren’t often good luck. To add to natural light, the best thing to do is to use full spectrum lighting, which mimics natural daylight and makes things easier to see, healthier, and more productive. White light is different from yellow light in another way. Yellow light isn’t good for offices because it makes the space feel too cosy, which slows down work.
12. Sit with your Best Direction facing you
If you want to be successful in your career and business, you should sit facing that direction to tap into your Sheng Chi. If you can’t get in touch with your Sheng Chi, try sitting in one of your other three lucky directions. You should always carry a compass with you so that when you go to meetings away from your desk, you can make sure to sit facing in the right direction. This will help you get along better with other people. Do this for the rest of your life.
