  • Home Office Feng Shui

    Whether you believe in the Oriental powers of feng shui or not, there are an increasingly large number of people who do. Either way, it's fun to examine different ideas, so let's take a look at your home office from the feng shui point of view.

    Business people in Asia have considered work place feng shui to be a crucial contributor to personal and business success for centuries. Anything that has lasted for centuries is worth a closer look to see if any part of the concept will work for you. In this,we will ignore corporate business office feng shui, and focus on home office adaptations.

    Have a separate outside entrance to your office if possible. If you can not, then choose a room that is near the front or back door of the house or apartment. Separate your home office from the rest of the living area in order to keep your business and personal lives separate. If your home office is part of a larger room, then partition it off with bookcases, screens, or large plants.

    You can energize your desk by adorning it with objects that symbolize the five elements to attract work and luck. Simply follow the Lo Shu grid like this:

    North: Your beverage cup or glass.
    Northeast: A crystal paperweight
    Northwest: Your computer terminal
    East: Fresh flowers
    Southeast: A small green plant
    South: A desk lamp or something red

    Always take a short walk before entering your office to work each day and another one at the end of your working day as another measure of separating your business life from your personal life. Leave at least 7-9 inches of space between each piece of office furniture. This allows room for energy to flow.

    Keep your workspace clean and clutter-free in order to allow a free flow of feng shui energy throughout the room. There is a difference between clutter and stored items. Stored items should, however, be filed away or stored neatly in a cabinet or closet to allow the flow of feng shui energy.

    Place a picture of a lake, waterfall or any other water scene on one of the walls on the East side of your office. This represents the flow of energy. You can also use one of those desktop fountains or even an aquarium

    Place a green, smooth-leafed plant, not one with jagged or pointed leaves, on a shelf in the corner closest to your water item. You can use an artificial plant if you are a known live plant killer.

    Here are some other items that you can also place in that corner:
    red eggs symbolizing wealth creation
    a red envelope containing several coins
    a crystal on a red ribbon near the window
    three Chinese coins tied with a red ribbon
    a pearl or anything spherical
    a wheel or bell
    a symbol or picture of red fish
    a lotus flower symbolizing great achievements from humble beginnings
    Also, consider placing a decorative jar filled with water near the entrance to your office.
