Office Feng Shui
Feng Shui is a valuable tool at your workplace. It aids in increasing sales, boosting morale of employees, productivity and induce kind energies. Apply Feng Shui at your business or home office. At work, you should have your seat on a solid and stable back as support; you should create an artificial support if you do not have one. You can do this by placing 8 white stones or pebbles under your seat or cover your seat with brown and yellow cloth. Below please find the 10 things to avoid in your workplace.
46th Minute Avoid 1: Back of your seat is facing the door.
This makes sense since the rule of thumb requires your back with support, any opening from behind is deemed as leakage or loophole to destruct your support. You will find it hard to have support from superior or your work require constant correction or amendment. If you cannot or do not have a choice, you should place a yellow or brown shirt to cover your chair and place 8 white stones under your seats. Nevertheless, make sure you arrange it properly and not out of place. Ideally, you should move your workplace else well.
Take a minute to find out which of your co-worker face such situation and examine the repercussion he or she has, if any. If it is true, give this book to him or her!
47th Minute Avoid 2: Back of your seat is a wall plate mirror.
A wall plate mirror is essentially the same with your seat facing the door. The rational behind this is that the mirror reflects you without any concrete support. The mirror also serves as an absorbing tool to attract kind energies like water. However, since you are in front of the mirror, your energies will be drained away! You will fell muscle pain and lethargic most of the time.
Take a minute to examine what type of mirror you have at homes or office. Some mirror is concave out and some is flat for different purpose. The flat mirror serves as receiving toll while the concave outward mirror serves as reflecting away energies.
48th Minute Avoid 3: Back of your seat is facing uneven materials.
Uneven materials do produce and generate unkind energies that will cause you to lose concentration as well as create grievances among colleagues. Already explained this also makes sense since our subconscious mind working very hard to put us on guard all the time and thus strain our concentration without us knowing it.
Take a minute to examine your workplace now to see if this situation does occur to you and make some changes now!
49th Minute Avoid 4: Back of your seat is a sharp object.
Again, this is to avoid your subconscious mind work very hard to put you on guard all the time. Besides this, point, Chinese believed that a sharp object serve as ‘evil’ tool to pork your back that might result in office grievances and unhappy situation.
Take a minute to clear any clutter, especially sharp object, behind you and see the differences that might bring into your career life.
50th Minute Avoid 5: Back of your seat with electrical appliances.
Electrical appliances cause the disturbance of magnetic field around your working environment. Such event will let your emotional swing easily and affect your productivity. Do not underestimate such unseen forces, some cases will cause serious health problems for those who prone to sickness and facing constant health problems.
Take s minute to turn off all the appliances behind you and see the effect in seven days. Get rid of them of you can if you see some changes in your working environment.
51st Minute Avoid 6: Above your seat is suppressed by iron bar or block.
This is the same principle like previous, it is to let your subconscious mind peace and channel the right energies to you. This setting is prone emotional upswing more than anything, besides causing constant headache to you.
Take a minute to do a checklist and see anything above your seat and avoid sitting directly under such unfavorable setting.
52nd Minute Avoid 7: Too little or too much sun light at your desk.
Our work place requires sufficient sunlight and too much of anything will not be good to us. The Yang energy should be strong enough to let our energy level up but soft enough for our eyes to comprehend.
Take a minute to examine if you have sufficient sun light to your desk.
53rd Minute Avoid 8: Too big of a picture in front of your.
Picture is part of decorations that reduce the monotonous setting in your work place, nevertheless too big of picture in front of your directly will you cause dizziness, headache as well as migraine. Avoid such big picture if possible.
Take a minute to imagine you facing such a bug picture 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week.
54th Minute Avoid 9: Too narrow of corridor that suppresses you
Corridor is said to channel a flow of so call ‘insensitive’ energies. According to basic topography, a road is bending is good Feng Shui as opposed to a straight one. This is a direct hit of unkind energies that will let you work harder but not smarter. Office morale is low as well as productivity. Moreover, your health is affected especially related the neck and muscle pains.
Take a minute to surf my website or refer my first book for such basic topography knowledge.
55th Minute Avoid 10: Fish tank that is taller than you are while seated.
Fish tank that is taller than you is not advisable, as this will create an overwhelming water element that not only will drown you subconsciously but also fence off the flow of kind energies towards you. The subconscious mind always put us ’on-guard’ most of the time and that create stress on you. It is scientific proven nothing superstitious.
Take one minute to agree with me that thus far, Feng Shui deals with mostly unseen forces that can be explained in today’s scientific rational.
