Watch Your Back While at Work

Whether you work at home or in an office, never sit with your back to the door, and try not to face a wall. Facing a wall can make it seem as though you will never get ahead, as your progress is blocked. If you do face a wall, and it is impossible to rearrange your desk, a mirror placed on the wall in front of you will help to some extent remedy the situation.

Many offices today have cubicles where people are all crowded together. If this is the case and you must sit with your back to the door, a small mirror on the wall in front of you will allow you to see people approaching from behind. Youll find this small adjustment will increase your comfort level. It isnt conducive to good chi energy to work with your back to the door or to other people. If your back is to the door or to other people, you are opening yourself up to get stabbed in the back.

Your back should not face a window, either, as you will not have the support you need. If this is not possible, keep the window covered with drapes or blinds, and place a large green plant by the window or in front of it. You can also use a screen for the same purpose.

Never sit directly in front of your office door. Try to sit at an angle so that you have a good view of the door, but are not directly in front of it. If you work in a home or outside office, always try to sit facing your great prosperity direction. If that is not possible, sit facing one of your three other good directions, preferably your overall harmony direction. Place objects like a globe, in the proper directions in your office the same way you would in your home. If you work out of the home, the office space should be activated with symbols to enhance the flow of money energy.

While the second fengshui explains that fengshui basically is a study to analyze the smoothness of energy in every situation and is accommodated with human life together with the activities - including business and career.

If the energy is going smoothly in a situation, then it will be advantage for us. If on the contrary where the energy is not going smoothly, it will be disadvantage for our activity. By studying this we will know when the energy is smooth and not. Even though  human can read the energy opportunity for himself, the real thing is in God's hands.

Your Window

Window is like eyes. The location and window size affect someone's luck. Widely open window to circulate the Chi. Outwardly opened window is the best alternative because it can maximize the Chi circulation, increase career and create harmony. Window will ease if the dweller's Chi is tense. On the other hand, inwardly opened window potentially create uncomfortable and tense dweller's Chi. Window that is opened up and down and not widely opened is not maximizing flowing Chi. This can cause a person make bad prejudice to visitors.

West facing window is potentially disturb dweller's Chi. Afternoon sunray can cause headache and work inefficiently. If it is not possible to close it, you can hang a crystal ball to bias the destructive sunray into rainbow phosphorescent which can strengthen the whole room with positive Chi.
The top side window should be taller than the tallest dweller. It can multiply the tall person's luck. The window should be wide enough because narrow window blocks Chi stream and narrows sight and luck.
