Whether you run your own business or run your household, we all want to be successful, right? Did you know that making your space more functional and clutter-free can open you up to all sorts of opportunities? And you thought getting clutter-free was just about tossing things!
Today we are going to Feng Shui your desk. Many years ago, I read a lot about Feng Shui and actually used it in our home. My goal then was for peace and love to fill our home. It wasn’t long before hubby came into our lives “out of no where”. Coincidence, maybe? God’s timing? Definitely. But I was also open to the possibilities.
Feng Shui is a practical science for our living space. I believe that when we apply the principals of Feng Shui to our space, it also changes our mind set. The whole Law of Attraction starts to work. The idea is that you energize your business and your life by cleaning out and moving things around a bit.
It all starts with a Feng Shui map called the bagua. You overlay it in any area in your home to help promote supportive and beneficial energy. Here is the basic bagua:
Sit down at your desk and place this right in front of you… where the career is nearest your lap.
WEALTH & PROSPERITY:
To invite more abundance and wealth into your life, place a healthy plant or a symbol of wealth in this corner. Plants symbolize growth. Find a plant with lovely rounded edges or even a money tree (yes, there is such a thing). You can also place objects or images that represent wealth to you or something that you hope to afford once you’re abundant. Have some fun with it Location: Upper left
FAME & REPUTATION
Boost your reputation by focusing your accomplishments here. Add a name plate, awards, credentials or a recent positive review. This is also the perfect place for a lamp or candle! Location: Upper middle
Place a picture of your business partner or a photo of your honey in this corner to help promote those relationships. It’s the ideal location for a lovely vase of fresh pink/red flowers. Location: Upper right
FAMILY & NEW BEGINNINGS
Keep pictures of your family here to boost your familial ties. It’s also a wonderful place to promote new projects you may be working on or want to work on. Add something made of wood or the color green to enhance and promote new beginnings. Location: Center left
This is not only for the health of your business but also personal health. Keep it clutter free and tidy! It’s easy to have piles of stuff in the middle of your desk but it needs to be as clean as possible! You can add earth elements to enhance including rocks, stones or earthen items. Location: Center middle
Boost your creativity by placing items here that inspire you. Keep your notebook or journal here to capture those aha moments. Boost the area with items made from metal such as gold, silver or copper. Location: Center right
KNOWLEDGE & SELF-CULTIVATION
Are you ready to learn a new strategy or simply increase your knowledge? Are you looking to improve your mindset and boost your self-confidence. Keep your favorite books here that you refer to often. Location: Bottom left
CAREER & LIFE’S JOURNEY
Front and center! This is the perfect place for your computer. To further enhance your career have an image of water as your screensaver to boost abundance of opportunities. Location: Bottom center YEAH! I got one out of 9!
Keep your appointment book, calendar, client files, phone and list of people you want to connect with here. Location: Bottom right YEAH!!! #2 out of 9!!!
You are thinking – I thought my desk would be clutter-free! These items don’t have to be large. Believe it or not they are probably already on your desk. Just moving them to a different place can boost the energy of your business. I challenge you to try this for 30 days and then let me know what happens.
Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
