The location and place of your shop is very important for a successful business. Selecting an office shop or flat for your business is most important for achieving success in any business and this directly affects your financial status. The more your business runs and the more customers you get or the sales involved will increase your financial returns and effect your wealth and money aspect in your life. How can you use simple feng shui rules to select a good office that will be beneficial for your business and give good financial returns will be discussed in this post.
While selecting any premises for your new venture or business first consider what you want from this place? Are you in sales field where you need daily more customers who will come to your shop? Are you offering services like a doctor, specialised service will require specific clients and not crowded with any category of people. Have you considered the budget about purchasing the place or renting the shop and how you will go about this. Begin with positive energy as tensions in finances in the beginning will have an adverse effect on the financial returns from your venture. Stress must not be involved in starting any venture. There must be excitement, hope and passion for beginning any venture.
Consider places that have curved paths that lead to the premises or shop. Straight roads produce shars or poison arrows that lead chi directly towards the door which is not considered good in feng shui. Shop directly facing road where cars are bound t come with full energy is not good as accidents might happen. Look at the road , it has to be clean and welcoming. The outside view has to be pleasant and if not you will have to make it pleasant and clean when you purchase the premises. Attractive entrances bring more customers.
Do consider the lighting ,that is natural sunlight also before choosing a shop for office. Now here you have to think about the business you run, that is a shop owner of electronics may not require direct sunlight for most parts of the day as electronics need to be kept in dry and cool light. Now a person selling groceries will require some sunlight daily at least for the entrance, to make positive energy here, whereas another example, of a doctor who will need a welcoming entrance but not direct sunlight for full day, whereas another service provider who works from flat may do good with artificial lights for most part of the day, which is cool.
Feng shui means wind and water but how much? A gentle breeze is considered good and a smooth flowing stream or lake is good but gushing waters from drains is not good and blast of air is bad feng shui. The outside environment should be appropriate and be inviting for your customers, the client must have faith in your services as they see your office from outside and your entrance must be welcoming.
See the inside walls and lighting and windows also. A well ventilated room is always liked by customers than a closed one with no fresh air. There must be a balance in all elements if possible but if not this can be easily remedied by using feng shui simple cures. You can have plants near the entrance to bring in positive energy and try to avoid big trees that are directly in front of your main door of the office. This creates a shar which is not good for your business. and big branches of a tree that point directly towards your main entrance of office is not good, trim them and place a screen to block the negative view for your clients.
Also banners, hoarding and advertisements that block your business name and entrance are very bad for business success.
The road leading to your shop must not have garbage bins or stinking with flies and if you are providing health care services, or any other service provider , especially your client will be repelled to come inside as they will doubt whether you will be good if the outside environment is not welcoming.
For home office choose areas that will allow you to focus on work. It must have privacy shield to stop energy from mixing with the house. Otherwise work stress is transferred to your full family. Have wooden table and ergonomically balanced chair to work efficiently. Have work related equipment beside your table to avoid unnecessary rounds for again and again searching for materials and files.
Lifts, elevators are considered very auspicious in feng shui as they lead the chi upwards. How to put elevators is important in feng shui as this will affect how your business performs and how your sales or finances increase or decrease.
It is very important that most elevators lead up wards and they must rise above the ground and move up. If more of down going elevators are placed in any premises or especially near the entrance it will lead to losses, material and financial as well as staff problems. The basic principle here is upward moving elevators lead energy upwards which is required for positive growth. This energy is transferred upon the business goods, rooms in your shops as well as the staff outlook and customer thinking. This increases the sales symbolically, a feel good factor, and gives good returns from your business. Down ward going elevators lead the energy down and have a pulling force which hampers your progress as well as your business suffers drawbacks and losses. This pulling down energy will affect the whole environment, Not only will your customers feel the over powering downward pull which will make them hesitant to make purchasing decisions but also the staff will require much more extra effort to close any business sales deals.
It is not always possible to have upward elevators only and we need the down ward elevators as well to keep a balance and grounding feeling as only upward energy will make the people have blurred thinking and not make practical decisions. If you have a downward going elevator put tall plants here to encourage upward energy and stop energy from moving out. Hanging symbolic feng shui paintings also will dissociate the negative energy coming down and will neutralise it into positive energy. You can also make a curved position of your elevator so that it does not face the entrance of your main door. This position is considered very bad in feng shui as the energy coming inside will go outside directly without mingling near the floor if your elevator faces to front entrance.
Do consider how much area you require and how many rooms or compartments you will divide the premises or shop for office and inside office feng shui . Having service areas and staff areas is good at backside of the office. the reception area must be clean and welcoming with bright beautiful paintings.
Avoid paintings of women, men, animals and landscapes for any business as they will do more damage than good for your business.
Choosing paintings for office consider your profession before choosing any art for walls. Positive inspirational message artworks are good for any business. Florals also work fine usually abstracts that are pleasant to eye are welcoming. Choose colours in artworks carefully depending upon the office purpose. A doctors clinic may not have vibrant shocking colourful art as it will make sick patients uneasy. Similarly a children's toy shop can have vibrant colourful paintings to attract children's attention to toys shop and toys display.
When you choose Reiki feng shui activated artworks there is no chance of anything going wrong. You get blessings from the Universe and there are symbols that protect you from making wrong business decisions and for success fruitful business. Feng shui evil eye paintings work in any space protect from evil eye and negative energies ,spirits that hinder your progress.
Geometric paintings are good for any office but they must not have very sharp shapes that hurt the eyes. The purpose is to make the viewer and workers comfortable and happy to be in your office space. You must also choose the size of paintings carefully as very large paintings sometimes are over whelming and people get uneasy to enter such spaces. Medium size and small size paintings with nice mounting are good for any office space. Choose white, black or metallic frame for paintings in office and avoid very glossy golden frames for artworks in offices. maintain the harmony of space.
For home office feng shui paintings must be according to your choice and liking. They must uplift you and energise you. They must assist you in working efficiently and not be a distraction from work. There are beautiful feng shui paintings for office on my website that are affordable and hand painted. No prints ,all original bespoke art with loads of positive energy.
