How to Feng Shui Your Office in Four Easy Steps

Laura Cerrano

Americans on average spend 34.4 hours longer at work than their counterparts in the world's largest economies. With that statistic noted, it's worth making sure your work environment receives Feng Shui TLC. This also includes decluttering and organizing your cubicle, desk and/or file cabinets. It's important to Feng Shui both your home and work environment. 

1. Declutter.

2. Add 1-2 plants.

3. Add artwork of natural scenery, like landscape.

4. Sit in a commanding position so you can see the front door.

The Clutter Inside Your Office File Cabinets Could Have an Unconscious Connection

Laura Cerrano

Define clutter...

a collection of things lying about or stored away in mass.

Clutter is a buzz word, introduced though the principles of feng shui back in the 1990's. Why is this topic so important to address? According to feng shui, clutter can impact us on various levels, not just with the physical presence.

Depending on the type of clutter you have in your office, and depending on where that clutter is located in accordance your Ba-gua Map Layout, your clutter could offer insight into your unconscious connections. This meaning, the hidden treasures you keep inside your office drawers (notes, letters, files, little objects, etc) could help shine light onto why you may be experiencing certain thoughts, habits and/or interactions with others (let that be perceived as positive or negative).  

I have a client in Los Angeles, California named Steve, who's intention is to improve communication with his clients and office colleagues. Steve told me for years he kept old files of real estate deals that went "dead" inside his office file cabinets. After observing the placement of these files in connection to the life sections they resided in and viewing the organizational system, his story aligned with his intention. 

His fame (reputation), wealth (finances), family (unity and support), and knowledge (self-cultivation) life sections were home to "dead deal" files. 

What do you think this could mean symbolically, energetically and literally in feng shui? If you thought stagnant or stuck energy due to the "dead" files, your on target!

Steve agreed to mindfully go though the files in his office drawers, carefully selecting which files have no business being there and which to keep. By doing this, he opens up the potential for building stronger relationships with existing and new clients. He is literally and energetically making room. 

Naturally, there are more components to this story and suggestions, yet at the surface level from a feng shui perspective, this is one of the first steps Steve could take to help reopen a better energy flow.
