Feng Shui - Business Boost Tips
Article Provided by Sarah McAllister BA FSSA
I was recently asked for input into an article on business Feng Shui for CorpComms business magazine.
Always happy to open up my portfolio to scrutiny, I contacted a few of my business clients to see if they would authorise an inclusion in the article. They were very happy to speak about their experience with my services and the appointed journalist found out more about the success of the Feng Shui consultations than I have ever heard directly from the clients!
These real-life examples of how Feng Shui can be applied to increase business were used in the cases of London Calling, Life After Branding and Courtney Bell Clinic (among others…) and here I will distil a few tips for you business owners to implement:
Front Door – it might sound obvious but your front door is vital, because it is the ‘mouth’ of your building and receives the 'nourishment' of energy and human traffic. If you have doors that open outwards then consider re-hanging them so that they open inwards, otherwise you are pushing the natural energy flow outwards.
Reception – having a spacious reception is also really important because people feel comfortable and feel as if they have arrived somewhere good. If you have a small reception use simple tricks like uplighters or slimline aquariums to create sparkle and movement in the space - but contact me first for advice because water is very powerful and should not be placed in the wrong direction.
Open View – where possible, try not to have large trees blocking the frontage of your office, particularly if they are ugly scraggly trees. Depending on where they are situated they can block the wealth position, cause edgy and spiky behaviour (its true!) and even cause problems with internal organs.
Power Position – it is marvellous to make seemingly small changes and see them have a big impact. This technique has to be the most gratifying and I have seen people turn from timid to assertive, simply by following this advice and placing their desk in the power position, found diagonally opposite the main door or if there are two doors then the area furthest away from both doors. Try to sit with your back protected by a solid wall, even if it means installing cable management to keep unsightly wires organised which were previously all jammed up against the wall. Who wants to face a wall day in day out?!
The above tips might seem ridiculously simple, but how hard we find it to be simple! How rarely do we slow down enough to stop and consider the breath of life in our buildings? A full professional consultation with us would of course also provide a whole host of techniques far beyond the scope of this article, but no matter how skilled or qualified a consultant is, they should never overlook the basics.
