Office Feng Shui

Feng Shui Tip by Ellen Whitehurst for Friday, June 17

I thought today I would share a piece of email with you. I found this to be interesting so I'm sharing, not deleting :D. As business people we all have an office of some sort, so enjoy.

Today's energies honor all those dads who bring home the bacon from the back of the house. That's right, today is 'Work at Home Father's Day,' a time to celebrate those pops whose children might require a diaper change but who also celebrate the baby who puts the wind in his sails: his business! So today I want to share some secret home office Shui, while also disclosing that I use almost all of these tips in my own home office space. First, red flowering plants or yellow chrysanthemums blooming in the Fame area of the office will bring both riches and laughter if they're bought or picked on October ninth and kept in a vase for 27 days. These plants are believed to bestow a position of respect and high rank! If the flowers begin to wilt, replace them immediately. An image of a mountain behind your desk will lend strength, courage and support, and anyone who approaches the desk will now subconsciously know that you're an immovable force to be reckoned with. A small statue of the Chinese Zodiac animal or ally that correlates to the year of your birth will bring a stronger sense of self worth, esteem, confidence, and greater power. This glass or crystal animal should sit on an octagonal mirror, and should be placed on a piece of red cloth on the far right hand side or corner of the desk. Bright lights burning in any office bring even brighter opportunities. But the most secret Shui for increasing opportunities, respect and vast rewards is to raise the level of your desk by a few inches. Position blocks of wood under each leg of the desk and then adjust the chair to match the new view. Speaking of having an excellent view, doing any or all of these cures inside your home office will have immediate, tangible and terrific results. Happy 'Work at Home Father's Day' to all those dads who've birthed a business! We honor you!
