Feng Shui for Your Office

Feng Shui is one of the ancient traditional practices that have been assimilated into the modern life. Basically, it is a form of aesthetic material that is believed to bring together the laws of heaven and earth. Using it was believed to help one live positively. This spiritual meaning gave it a vital role to play in the community. Today, people have taken to using the same system to decorate various areas that they frequent with belief that it will result into a positive life. Offices are major areas that really draw out the course of our lives. This is because whatever happens in our offices influences the rest of our lives. Therefore, many use Feng Shui to create a friendly atmosphere in the office as well as bringing productivity into the office.


When using Feng Shui in any area, there are spots known as Bagua where this items should be used. Therefore, first spot these areas in your office. A copy of the Bagua can be downloaded from the internet. There are a total of 8 areas, though one must give more priority to the areas associated with wealth and fame. Energy flow is one vital aspect that should be in our offices. Feng Shui provides us with specific tips that we can use to adequately provide our offices with appropriate energy flow.


To start with, the desk should be in such a position that it will face the doorway. Alternatively, it will diagonally face the doorway. The aim here is to face the doorway and not letting you back face the door. On the other hand, if there is more than one desk, the arrangement should also change. Two of them should face the door in a diagonal manner while the rest should face the center of the office. 


The kind of classroom arrangement should not be used; no matter the number of desks. Find a way of avoiding the back to back arrangement. Secondly, make sure that the office opposite yours across the hall way is in proper alignment. If this is not the case, place a mirror in front of the offices, this way you can clearly see what is going on the other end. 


Walls should also be proper. Start by removing any kind of dulls artifacts on the mirror. This includes the likes of mirrors or portraits. Partitions should not be there but if a must, place a mirror on the partition. Finally, give the wall a sense of life by placing some plants on them. 


Feng Shui for Your Bedroom

Before we go far on talking about what Feng Shui entails let us first define what it is. Feng shui is the earliest Chinese aesthetic system which is comparable to an art form. This system was discovered so many years back and is mainly famous in the United States and also in china. It is all about traditional folklore. It also involves spiritual powers on Feng Shui. Most of its teaching is usually based on spiritual relationship between heaven and earth. This practice is mostly made up of a combination of Chinese and east Asian religion. And so, it tries very much to stabilize the two or show positive Qi. This is a term that is mostly used in martial arts and it is a force that is general in life and it is mostly believed by practitioners to move to everything. 


It is believed that there are two types of Qi. There is the positive one and the negative one. If you bring the positive one in your house, you are assured of success in everything that you do at your home. The chief in Feng Shui is the yin and yang which are opposite polar and they have to stay in perfect balance and agreement. You can apply the theme of Feng Shui in your room by aligning and placing items in balance. These items could include doors, windows and also rooms and homes. In the current situation this art is trying to balance our lives in our respective homes and not only items in our homes. 


It teaches us that when you remove some of the items from your sleeping rooms you are able to keep positive Qi. The things that you are supposed to remove from your room so as to raise a positive Qi are like removing computers, TVs and working out equipment from your room. When you do not do this, then you are prone to lose this positive Qi. Your bedroom is supposed to be a place for resting and with lots of harmony but when you add other things it ceases being a calm place for resting. Your room should also bring out a sense of energy and so you can ensure a flow of energy by using colors. This has been shown in color theory and psychology to bring about true benefits. 


Some colors like red, orange and also yellow have been discovered to bring confidence and acknowledgement in a room. Other colors such as green and brown show sustenance, medicinal and development. Many people apply this art of Feng Shui in their homes so that they get the power of positive Qi in their homes.
