10 Office Feng Shui Tips

 

Feng Shui originated from China which uses energy forces to harmonize individuals with their surrounding environment.

Here are some tips to help you harmonize energy in your office.

Clear the clutter and remove dusts in your office to improve flow of chi energy and help you be more productive and creative. Eliminate distractions by removing things that are not in use in your office or even in your computer by preparing a separate area to put unfinished and/or completed work. Clutter drains your energy and may dampen your best intentions so it is best to organize a clean and clear system and not let clutter ruin your health and business.

Cultivate the north if your desk to help you solidify your actions in your vocation. It will also help improve productivity. You can purchase an inexpensive water fountain or all things blue in color.

Avoid sitting back at the door. For a Feng Shui commanding position to attract stronger and successful energy, position your desk facing the door. Turning your back to the door means turning back on your business and makes you vulnerable to unnecessary fears and negative energy.

Your desk shall not be also placed with the right side facing door; it will lead to poor work efficiency and health and promote being disturbed by people in and out.

The office table shall also no face restroom door and walls on all sides.

The office table shall not have a window behind the seat nor your office table be placed near it. Window is the inlet and outlet of various Qi so it is ominous to put your head at the window to greet evil spirit.

Keep your office well lit. Good quality light can help influence your health and well-being. Light is the strongest manifestation of energy so it can help your body get nourished.

Bring in arts or objects that bring you happy memories. This is a must for any office space. This can help greatly in you overall mood, health, creativity and productivity.

Plants can help too. Bringing in fresh energy from nature is a must. Be sure to choose a plant that not only is pleasing to the eyes but can also purify air.

Create a meditative space. Keep one place in your office where you can meditate, relax or calm your self during stressful workdays. It can be a sofa, beanbag, side table or even a floor cushion.

Feng Shui – The Five Power Principles

What is Feng Shui?

Feng Shui is a system for arranging your surroundings in harmony and balance with the natural world around you. In Chinese, the words Feng Shui mean “wind and water.” Feng Shui For Real Life is a contemporary, practical approach that allows you to use what you already have and what you want to acquire to bring good things into your life.

In the current economic climate, more people are turning to practical uses of Feng Shui to help them through tough times.

The Five Power Principles of Feng Shui

Power Principle #1 — Chi

Chi is energy. It is the constantly moving and changing life force that we feel around us making us feel either good or bad in a certain location. Chi can
accumulate in the objects around you. In your home or office, the chi will flow in through the door and out through the windows. The goal of Feng Shui improvements (or “cures”) is to keep the chi flowing gently throughout your environment rather than running straight through it. Chi can have a negative effect on your surroundings when it gets stuck or blocked.

Power Principle #2 – The Five Elements

The Five Elements is the collective name used to describe the colors, shapes, and textures around you. The Elements are: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. Each Element is distinguished by a characteristic shape, colors, and set of attributes. Feng Shui improvements for homes and offices balance all of these Elements in your interior environment.

Power Principle #3 – The Bagua

The Bagua is the chart used to map the areas of a home or office and determine where to locate the objects and colors that represent the Five Elements. The traditional bagua is an octagon (the word bagua means “8-sided” in Chinese). Modern approaches to Feng Shui use a grid-shaped chart to map nine areas of your life (see Bagua Map):

•Power/Wealth/Abundance
•Fame/Future/Reputation
•Love/Relationships/Marriage
•Creativity/Children/Legacy
•Compassion/Travel/Helpful People
•Self/Career/Work
•Knowledge/Wisdom/Harmony
•Family/Health/Community
•Well-Being/Balance

Power Principle #4 – Yin and Yang

According to the yin-yang theory, everything in the universe consists of two opposing, but interconnected, forces: yin, which is feminine, and yang, which is masculine. Yin qualities are female, soft, passive, nurturing, dark, while the yang qualities are male, hard, active, aggressive, bright. This Power Principle relates to balancing the opposites around you to achieve harmony, like soft and hard, cold and hot, dark and light, floral and geometric, straight and curvy.

Power Principle #5 – Continuity and Connectedness

This principle relates to the belief that the more your interior surroundings feel connected to the natural world outside, the more balanced you’ll feel inside. Because every action has a reaction, we are influenced by everything around us and, in turn, we influence everything. In Feng Shui, we believe “you are what you see.” That is, the colors, shapes, and images you use to decorate your surroundings will influence what you attract into your life.
