In Feng Shui, the entryway to your home sets the tone for your whole living space, but what about the setting your workspace to bring you career success?
We spoke with Feng Shui expert, Anthony Lee, to find out how we can incorporate positive energy like balancing ‘Qi’ to boost our careers at the same time.
1. Create a clutter-free office desk
A clutter-free office desk brings positive energy. A cluttered work environment will churn negative energy. The individual will experience obstacles in his or her job. In Feng Shui’s context, putting plants around a office desk will cause stagnancy in one’s career. One should void putting other objects like toy cars or plush toys like Hello Kitty.
2. Put right things on your office desk
In today’s market, there are a lot of commercial Feng Shui products. Personally, Anthony Lee has tested the energy level of the Feng Shui products by using Energy Analysis Tool. In contrary, some products bring more negative energy to the owner.
To manage a good Feng Shui’s desk, you can create the right positive energy by placing the right items at the right places. The objective is to seek a harmony among the 5 elements (Metal, Water, Earth, Wood and Fire). Here are some quick tips for managing your office desk:
Drinks and Water Bottles
– North / East
Computer Monitor and Telephone
– South / South-West
Documents and Files
– East / South-East
Coins, Scissors, Decorative Stones
– West / North-West
3. Manage good office relationships
Having good office relationships will help to enhance your career. We have some immediate good remedies to enhance your poor work relationships, especially with your boss.
To solve poor work relationship with your boss, the ultimate Feng Shui remedy is by placing your boss’s photo within North-West zone of your office desk.
For open office environment, you have the photo placed in a photo frame, put it at the North-West zone. This application will certainly reduce friction between you and the boss. As the time grows, the working relationships will flourish.
4. Have a personal positive energy.
To achieve good “ren yuan” (personal good aura), you need to have positive energy. It is intangible and invisible like an aura. In Feng Shui’s world, having positive “ren yuan” means that you are full of vigour. You attract favorable things to your life.
On the other hand, having negative energy means you are restless, you will attract unfavorable things to your life. Hence, it is important to remain positively charged every day in order to remain successful and healthy.
There is a Feng Shui’s saying, “You are at the right day and at the right time and at the right place”. Should you be in such a state, favorable things would take place to your advantage.
5. Determine your favorable and unfavorable days of 2016.
