Feng shui is the practice of balancing energy in a space for good health and fortune for the people living and working in it. There is a lot of ideas and tips out there from different schools and practices making it confusing on what to do or not to do.
I have found over the years that some feng shui tips work, others do not, and a lot of it is just common sense. Just like when you market your business, if you do not see the results you are looking for in feng shui you need to try something else.
So I came up with a few feng shui tips for business that I use that are quick and easy to implement.
Feng Shui Tip #1: Desk Location
Position your desk so you face the door of your office.
You want to make sure you can see people who are coming in. You don't want to have your back to the door as you could be "surprised" by someone walking in.
The best position for your desk would be diagonal from the door. That is the “power” position.
#2: Wealth Corner
Bring prosperity and money luck to your business by enhancing your wealth corner.
To locate the wealth corner of your office, stand at your door facing into your office. The back far left area of your office will be your wealth corner.
Place a plant in that area to represent growth of your finances. Practitioners suggest a jade plant because the leaves look like coins but any healthy rounded edge plant will do. No cactus. Succulents would be fine.
Important papers, cash boxes/money, or check books can also be kept there.
#3: Organization and Clutter Busters
Clutter and mess not only waste your time but also make the energy in your space “stuck”. New business opportunities and growth can’t happen if you are “stuck”.
Clear out broken or unused items from your office. Throw away old paperwork you no longer need. As you go through this process you might notice that your office feels fresher, more energetic, more ready for new opportunities.
Try out these tips and see if you notice any results with your business. For a deeper dive into other feng shui tips, I highly recommend the Feng Shui Store blog.
