Feng Shui for Your Home Business

There are many business people all over the world that use the principles of Feng Shui in their business. Many Asians believe Feng Shui is necessary in order to conduct proper business and business management. In fact, there are some famous business people in the United States that are using Feng Shui and they have encountered good success. On the other side, some people who work from home find themselves somewhat perplexed because it can be difficult for them to separate their home business from their personal life and they don’t have a lot of interaction with other people. However, having a home based business outweighs the challenges and frustrations that people face working at a 9 to 5 job.

If you’re looking to attract wealth and abundance for your home based business using Feng Shui, here are some ways to incorporate it:

  • You should always sit with a solid wall behind your back. Avoid sitting with a window behind you.
  • You should not have a wall facing you while you’re at your desk working or when you come into the office.
  • Wherever your wealth area is, you should have the office equipment placed there.
  • In order for Chi to flow with harmony, place the tables and chairs in a strategic format.
  • Have air-purifying plants in your home office. This will help supply you with a fresh quality of air and it will also increase the amount of oxygen generated in that area.
  • Other than air-purifying plants, refrain from having any plants that have sharp edges, such as cactus.
  • The entry door to your home office should be free of obstruction. If there is obstruction, such as a table behind the door, the Chi will not operate correctly.
  • In order to enhance the presence of Chi, a good idea is to install a hanging crystal in your home office.
  • Your home office should be a good distance from your bedroom.
  • Your home office should be about productivity and the colors contained within should reflect that.
  • The copy machine should not be near the main entry door as the heat generated from it can cause Chi to flow incorrectly.
  • If there is an empty vase near the main entry door, the Chi will find its way into the empty vase. This will be detrimental to the environment.
  • If you have clients that come to see you, try placing a fish tank within the wealth area. This will help you get better results and probably more clients, which in turn, means more money. You have to be careful to follow the instructions for doing this, otherwise it won’t work.
  • In order to get Chi working properly, install a small indoor fountain in your wealth corner. This method will also help you health wise.
  • Keep your desk and surrounding areas clutter free. To help with this, the Chinese do not use paper trays and this concept is starting to make its way to the United States.

Pay attention to the kind of light that you are using in your home office. You should use both natural and artificial lighting. You will not be able to function properly if you don’t have enough natural light. You should also think about getting other types of lights, such as full-spectrum lights. These are similar to the natural light spectrum and they have been branded as healthier to use. There are different areas of your home office that need to be nurtured with Feng Shui. In the North area, the Water Element is used as well as Metal. It is also fine to have images with black or white frames. The South area uses Fire for energy. You should refrain from having blue mirrors, or images of water that represent this color. The Southeast area is for images that represent prosperity and abundance and the Wood Element is also used here. With this, you should refrain from Fire and Metal images.

Using these Feng Shui principles will help your business to thrive and grow in prosperity and abundance.
