Feng Shui is the ancient art of improving every aspect of
your life by enhancing your environment according to the
principles of harmony and energy flow.
Its purpose is to remove blockages to the free flow of
energy and allow prosperity and well-being to enter your
These tips can help you build an environment of success in
1. PLACE YOUR COMPUTER AND DESK IN THE ‘POWER’ POSITION
The ideal placement for the computer monitor is on the desk
in front of you in a position that still allows you to see
the door of your office. If you cannot see the door when
facing your computer, your nervous system will be on alert
for surprise visits. If you cannot move your computer, you
can restore good Feng Shui by arranging a mirror that gives
you a clear view of the door. A small convex mirror
designed for use on car side mirrors can be purchased and
stuck on the side of your computer. Cost, about $3.00
2. MAKE SURE EVERYTHING AT YOUR DESK ALLOWS YOU TO BE
A good combination glare screen/radiation filter to prevent
headaches and eyestrain, a comfortable chair that doesn’t
squeak, comfortable keyboard and arm position, a mouse that
fits your hand etc. Anything that causes you discomfort
will drain your energy.
3. CLEAR THE CLUTTER IN YOUR OFFICE
Clutter is anything unfinished, unused, unresolved,
tolerated or disorganized. When we clear our clutter we get
into our power and create a space for new things to come
into our lives. You will have more energy and creativity to
design your life to reflect your authentic self.
Clutter is like emotional constipation – it bogs us down.
Filing cabinets need to be regularly purged and desktops
kept clutter free.
If in doubt, ask yourself, “Do I love it, do I use it, and
does it raise my energy?”
4. KEEP YOUR COMPUTER CLUTTER FREE
How is your Inbox? Create Folders to file emails you want
to refer to. If you see hundreds of emails when you open
your Inbox, you will feel overwhelmed. Of course, it is
important to regularly go through all your folders to
delete emails no longer needed. Once a week check your
Deleted Items folder and empty it.
Is your Desktop full of shortcuts to programs from a past
life? Do you have programs on your computer you never use?
Computers are great clutter collectors, and like us, they
work better if we keep them decluttered.
5. ENHANCE YOUR PROSPERITY CORNER
As you enter the door of your office, the far left hand
corner is your Wealth and Prosperity corner. What do you
have there? Clutter in this area will definitely be
affecting your prosperity.
This would be a good place for a small tabletop fountain, a
valuable item or even an affirmation of what you want to
attract. Blues, purples and reds are the colors for this
area. Can you include one of these colors in something that
makes you feel prosperous?
Make these enhancements to your office and have your
environment support your prosperity, energy and creativity.
