Feng Shui and the Office

Both home and work space can influence your health, relationships, and even financial potential.

Over the last twenty years, millions of Westerners have been introduced to the fascinating topic of Feng Shui (pronounced fung shway), which reveals how people are affected by their physical surroundings. Were all had the experience of quickly feeling comfortable or uncomfortable in certain environments, but the ancient science of Feng Shui has documented the enduring and highly specific result of living or working in defined spaces.

Location, Direction, Timing


The old real estate maxim location, location, location can be re-invented for Feng Shui purposes to location, direction, timing  Based on when a structure is built, the direction the building faces, and the total sum of the interior and exterior environment, both home and work space can influence your health, relationships, and even financial potential.

Millions of Americans work in cubicles and windowless offices that are not ideal based on the most simple of Feng Shui principles, as well as on common sense.  But the most revealing influences are ones that cannot even be seen, although they can be calculated.  There are buildings that are inherently good or bad for your health or earning potential and some aspects change over time.  For example, a building that faces magnetic northwest and built between 1984 and 2003 is in a long-term phase that is considered bad for financial luck. 

No matter what the other circumstances are with this building type, there is an underlying layer which can sabotage a company or individual working in that kind of energy field.

According to Feng Shui principles, which date back more than 3,000 years, when a structure is built will encapsulate energies seeping upwards from the ground it is built upon as well as drawing downward energy from the sun and other planets above.  Once the roof goes on, that seals the energy inside the building, with a predictable affect on its occupants.


Feng Shui Tips for Office


In a commercial work space, most people will instinctively avoid sitting with their back to the rooms entrance door.  We simply know that we would feel vulnerable with our back to the door, especially the door through which customers or co-workers enter the room.  But there are many other Feng Shui principles that one can apply to create more harmony, creativity and productivity.  Sitting with ones back to a solid wall with a clear view of the door and a nice view outside is just the beginning.

There are buildings that are

inherently good or bad for

your health or earning potential

and some aspects change.


It is also advisable to avoid sitting directly under a large exposed beam or any type of heavy lighting fixture that might be looming overhead.  It is best to avoid sitting with your back aligned directly with the corner edge of a protruding column as this is known to cause back pain.

Even a singular room can be micro-managed, whereby moving a desk to a better section of the room could result in a promotion or more productivity.  Personal remedies can be applied when a persons birth date is taken into consideration.  For example, if a person born in 1961 sits at work facing south, it can encourage wealth and prosperity.  But if that same person were to sit facing southwest, they could attract accidents and other negative influences instead.

Sometimes it is even evident with Feng Shui why a company or individual can do well financially, but have a hard time saving what they make.  And why some work environments attract legal problems, which is rarely a good thing except for a law firm!
