Keep your workspace clean and clutter-free in order to allow a free flow of feng shui energy throughout room. There is a difference between clutter and stored items. Stored items should, however, be filed away or stored neatly in a cabinet or closet to allow flow of feng shui energy.
Place a picture of a lake, waterfall or any other water scene on one of walls on East side of your office. This represents flow of energy. You can also use one of those desktop fountains or even an aquarium
Place a green, smooth-leafed plant, not one with jagged or pointed leaves, on a shelf in corner closest to your water item. You can use an artificial plant if you are a known live plant killer.
Here are some other items that you can also place in that corner:
* red eggs symbolizing wealth creation * a red envelope containing several coins * a crystal on a red ribbon near window * three Chinese coins tied with a red ribbon * a pearl or anything spherical * a wheel or bell * a symbol or picture of red fish * a lotus flower symbolizing great achievements from humble beginnings
Also, consider placing a decorative jar filled with water near entrance to your office.
Fend Shui Benefits
Feng shui is said to make you more aware of how your environment affects your state of mind. Even if you don't subscribe to ancient Oriental ways, you have to admit that an uncluttered office, with room to move around, and pleasant decorations is much better than a cluttered dungeon that's stuffed to ceiling with piles of paper.
Also, feng shui helps you to stay focused by forcing you to store incomplete and future projects in a storage area so you won't be distracted by worrying over them every day. Feng shui experts claim that you will receive these additional benefits as well:
* Increase your prosperity & abundance. * Boost your health. * Reduce insomnia & stress. * Enhance your personal power. * Easing of family conflicts. * Increase your concentration * Enhance financial security. * Attract new customers to your business. * Upgrade your life in many other ways.
