Feng Shui Cures Fear Generated by Promotion
Since watching your feng shui videos I
have noticed definite improvements in my career as
evidenced by my recent promotion. Even though things are
going great at work, I feel extremely unsure about my
job and financial security. Further, I experience
negative chi from several of my new employees.
My new office has two doors facing
each other, one used as my private entrance; the other
used by my employees. The desk faces both doors and
there is a window between these two doors and another
window to my right that faces east. In that desk
position my chair backs another door that opens to a
small storage room. Can you suggest a feng shui cure to
dispel my fears?
Congratulations on your promotion!
It is understandable why you would
want to get off to a great start and what better time to
begin than the New Year.
Being a feng shui expert is sometimes
like being a detective. From the description of your
desk position, I can see why you have this pervasive
feeling of unease. Sounds like your fears can be quieted
by changing the position of your desk.
The two doors seen from your desk that
are divided by a window are in feng shui terms
distracting and anxiety provoking. The human eye when
observing an edge (and a wall is an edge) cannot help
but seek four things. The eye seeks the furthest
distance, the brightest light, movement and the diagonal
The window most likely frames a scene
with two ingredients that the eye seeks --- light and
movement. The two doors on either side of the window
fights equally for your attention because doors are
penetrations and since one is an employees entrance it
understandable siphons off some of your attention.
Without a conscious effort you are most likely checking
occasionally to see if someone is entering. On top of
that, the door behind you invites additional tension
even though people don’t enter through it. All doors
imply a penetration and produce distraction. This
physical set up combined with the concern a new job
generates makes your fears understandable.
Here’s what to do.
Decide which window faces the most
uplifting and satisfying view and cover the other one
with a solid window covering. If they are the same cover
the left one. The window toward your right is fine
without a covering. Hang a bell from a ribbon and hang
on the employee’s door handle to allow you to hear
when someone begins to enter without having to check
visually. Mount a hook on the storage door to reinforce
safety subliminally. With these changes you don’t have
to move your desk!
Finally, to diffuse what you call
negative chi place a cut crystal vase of light rose or
salmon flowers on your desk to your left and those who
enters right. If fresh flowers are too much hassle,
select a pastel salmon colored bowl and fill with
marbles. For the first three months, dispense cedar
essential oil in your office. Cedar is a scent that
dispels fear and often a new boss is feared not
Now be all you can be and thrive!
