Office and Home
Offices are where we make a lot of decisions. Office energy can be fast paced. This can lead us to feel worn out and frazzled. Feng Shui can help bring order and peace to this area. It does not matter if your office and your home are separate or the same place. It does not matter if it is a spacious room or just a cubicle. You can still use Feng Shui and reap its benefits.
The place where we tend to be most, other than the home, is where we work. It is imperative that this space be relaxing and balanced. Whether your office is located outside the home or within the home, you need to be sure to follow the guidelines of Feng Shui to create the environment you need.
First, you should not have any clutter. Clutter creates negative energy. Put away any papers on your desk, file away folders, and don not allow the room to get messy.
The furniture in your office should reflect harmony. It must allow energy to move freely. Items with sharp edges should be removed. Sharp edges can change the energetic pathway. Instead, choose a desk that is curved. Hence, the energy can move slowly and steadily. You should have a spacious desk so that you do not get a “boxed in” feeling. A small desk will create a sense of impatience and irritability. You do not want to place your desk in a position that faces the wall. Also, do not situate the desk in a position that the door is behind you. You do not want the energy flows into the room to directly hit your desk.
Keep office machines (such as the printer and fax machine) at a distance from your desk. When they are placed by a desk, they create a negative energy. Bring plants into the office.
For the home office, if you have a workspace carved out of a living area or a bedroom, then you need to use a divider. Use Feng Shui colors to divide this space. This division helps the energy focus to be on work. That way we divide the workspace and living space energy. Use the colors that signify achievement in career related tasks. Utilize colors with accents.
