Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice that has been used to harmonize human actions and reactions to the Earth’s positive and negative forces. As entrepreneurs, we can, and should use the basic principles of Feng Shui to balance our lives and business activities to create a zone of prosperity and power that we dwell within.
I do know there are some who do not adhere to what they feel are absurd religious principals. By no means am I attempting to change or disintegrate your religious faith whatever it may be. To be truly honest, I long to see people of all faiths harmonize with each other, because there are positive aspects we can use from each for the well-being of all.
How does Feng Shui work?
Without getting too technical, our Earth, well actually all existence works on the same principal a simple battery works on… Positive and Negative. Putting these 2 together in harmony makes a useful tool. And putting these 2 together in existence creates a perfect universe. Putting these 2 together for entrepreneurs equals prosperity.
I am sharing 12 Feng Shui tips that have helped me gain prosperity, and I believe they can help you too.
Feng Shui Tip #1 – Paint Your Work Area
Colors can greatly affect your mood and productivity. Bright colors create stimulation and even aggression, while paler colors will be more soothing.
Blue seems to be the color that gives the best production, so a pale blue is highly recommended for entrepreneurs.
A pale green can be more balancing and a pale gray can also achieve both balance and productivity.
Feng Shui Tip #2 – Make Money-Making Tasks The First Priority
Many entrepreneurs will claim they are busy, but are they busy in the right way?
If your first tasks are checking emails or painting your office, is that “busy” putting money in the bank?
It is wise to take on the money-making first thing so you can feel a sense of accomplishment.
Feng Shui Tip #3 – Office Ergonomics
It is quite important that you consider the ergonomics in your office.
- Is your computer screen at eye-level?
- Do you have a comfortable office chair?
- Do you have an arm pad in front of your keyboard?
Investing in you office ergonomics is an investment in success.
Make sure that you hang and display positive pictures. That family picture that was taken during a stressful moment may not be the best idea. If you have a love for Nigerian art, display some.
Find items that bring only the positive side of you out.
Feng Shui Tip #5 – Make Sure Your Blog/Website is Feng Shui’d
Now is the time to adjust your website/blog so it brings out positivity from your readers. Just like your office colors, your website colors can create tension or stress, or they can create a calmness and serenity.
Remember, pale colors are better. Less ads are better, and place them in unobtrusive places. Use images that are delightful to look at.
Feng Shui Tip #6 – Make Sure You Are Easily Contacted
I suggest you have many ways that potential customers can contact you. Several I suggest are:
- Postal address
Having multiple contact forms gives people a sense of trust.
Feng Shui Tip #7 – Face The Door
It is a position of power… Have your desk chair face the door. This will take the sense of vulnerability from your mind.
It is also recommended that you keep your desk near the middle of the room and not against a wall.
Feng Shui Tip #8 – Dress Sharp
There is a common thought among home-based entrepreneurs that they can work in their pajamas… And, you can, but…
Your attitude will reflect it and you may be sleepy much of the time when you should be alert. Pajamas bring the sleepiness out of people.
If you dress sharp, even at home, you will generate a positive and prosperous atmosphere. Essentially, you will be a money magnet.
Feng Shui Tip #9 – Make Sure Your Business Card Is Feng Shui’d
What is the general attitude when someone receives your business card? Do they study it? Do they compliment it, or do they just shove it in their pocket or purse.
Consider the colors and image on the card. The font can make a difference too.
Feng Shui Tip #10 – Essential Oil
- and Rosemary
Feng Shui Tip #11 – Plants
Plants can give your home office a relaxation like no other. Plus, plants give us oxygen and take toxins from the air.
Find some nice plants to add to your office and you will create a more work-friendly atmosphere.
