Returning to the office and this long period of WFH?
Some of us are returning to the office or feeling the need to improve your home workspace. If you’re ever feeling stuck in a career trench, or feel that your performance is below average, rearranging your desk to include a few simple feng shui touches could help.
Here are a few tips to clear the energy in the any work space and give your career a boost.
Place your office electronics on your left
A simple Fengshui trick is to attract good luck and positive energy at work is to place either your mobile phone or your computer on the left side of where you sit at work. The reason is that the left side belongs to the Green Dragon, who brings you prosperity and harmony at work. The right side belongs to the White Tiger, which will attract more challenges at work (unless you are in a commanding position).
Use plants to boost your positive health energy
If your working position (whether at home or in the office) is near or backed into a corner, place a small plant at the front of your table to bring positive energy to a stagnant area. You will be able to work better and this will boost your health and stamina. Avoid a cactus or any plants with thorns or too many flowers (this could be more of a hindrance than a help). Make sure you use real plants as fake plants can attract negative energy or even lower your current mood and self-esteem.
Turn on music to remove ‘Sha Qi’ or negative energy that creates tension
To ensure harmony and calm your nerves, play some music around you. Opt for calming melodies without lyrics. Try to avoid anything too upbeat or energetic as it may distract you if you’re meant to be concentrating on your work. However, different people respond to different music. If you find rock ballads to be soothing, go ahead and play them. If you are running your own business, having soothing music place in the office is good for business and your employees. Alternatively, getting your clients to meet somewhere with pleasant music can ensure higher chances of closing a deal.
Avoid facing any sharp corners or edges
Make sure that your desk or work space isn’t facing any sharp corners or edges, such as pillars. These sharp edges can invite in negative energy, and may cause migraines, pressure and unhappiness for yourself and others. Keep your desk facing a different way or try to put up a blockade or something between your desk and the sharp edge or corner if it’s not possible to move. If it is truly unavoidable and you feel uncomfortable, place a bowl of salt or a salt lamp between you and the sharp corners to minimize pressure and “Sha Qi”.
Place crystals to your right
Crystals such as Tourmaline or Clear Quartz should be placed at the right-hand corner of your desk. This helps you to break down the stressful energies at work. It can also reduce attacks from ‘tricky’ people or those who may want to deceive you. They can also attract benefactors to assist you in your work. Remember to cleanse the crystals regularly to keep them at their most effective.
Place a water feature in the north corner
If possible, place a water feature in the north corner of your house or office to activate good career possibilities and opportunities. Try to avoid stagnant or sitting pools of water. Instead, consider fountains that have a flowing water system or even a fish tank that has moving currents. This will bring you luck.
Place a red table lamp facing south
Ensure you place a table lamp or something that is red in colour at the south corner of your desk to attract recognition, fame and achievements. The colour red should be vibrant and uplifting, instead of dull or unclean. This will also boost your luck in getting a promotion. It doesn’t strictly have to be a lamp — any small item will do.
Avoid hanging mirrors in the office
Avoid hanging mirrors in the office or workspace, especially when it’s positioned behind your back. This also applies to pictures or anything very reflective or acts like a mirror. This can cause you to attract complaints and increase the chance of people looking to backstab you. If you need to check your makeup or do up your hair, use a small compact mirror that you can carry around in your purse or bag instead.
Tidy up your desk after finishing work each day
Make sure you tidy up your desk every time you finish working — so that the next day is a fresh new start and brings you a smoother start for the day. Always declutter your desk. Try to avoid making your desk messy or disorganised in the evening as this can cause stagnant energies to accumulate. This may also create friction between you and your co-workers. A clean desk leads to a clear mind.
