to Create Success Energy
By Pat Heydlauff
your office support you? You may have never asked yourself that
question, but you should. Your office should support you
energetically. Are the colors on the walls conducive to
productivity? Is the entrance clutter-free, and welcoming? Does it
reflect a successful business?
you work in the corner office of a multi-story commercial building,
a cubicle in a medical center or the corner of a bedroom in your
home, your workspace should provide you with supportive energy for
focus, productivity and income generation.
to be an office only needed a desk and chair, something to write
with, a telephone and perhaps a typewriter. Today, the technological
and electronic needs are vast. Global communication systems, cell
phones and smart phones, wireless laptops, and voicemail systems are
just a few of the necessities of a productive 21st
of the high-tech requirements, the more subtle but equally
supportive energy requirements are often overlooked. These provide a
balanced atmosphere, allowing you to stay focused, productive and
in-control of your time. A productive, success-oriented office
contains a balanced amount of both worlds. Integrating some basic
Feng Shui principles and personal design preferences with your
high-tech requirements will create an office that is less stressful
and more productive, which yields more profitability and personal
you can energize your office for success, it is imperative you
unclutter it first. If you energize certain areas of your office and
there is clutter in the way, you will energize the clutter first and
create even more clutter. Organize it, file it or get rid of it.
Then you are ready to move on.
seven Feng Shui Principles you can apply today to create a balanced
Energize the entrance to your office by eliminating
any clutter, having it well-lit, removing wastebaskets from the area
and making sure the door can swing open. This is not only the
entrance to your productivity, but also the entrance to new clients,
new business and profitability. The front entrance and its welcoming
statement affect the success of your entire business.
If your office is in your home, make sure the entrance
to your home is also welcoming. You can do this by making sure
plants are pruned and there are colorful flowers to greet clients.
Do this even if clients never come to your home. Positive energy
needs to enter in order to provide your business with growth and
Paint office walls colors that provide supportive
energy for the work being done. For example:
Medical, or dental office walls should be light shades
of blue or green because these are very calming colors. Since
patients may be uncomfortable and nervous upon arrival, the best
energy for them is calming energy.
Sales, marketing and professional offices should be a
soft terra cotta or earth tone colors, which is conducive to
building good relationships with clients. Avoid the hard,
stress-oriented energy created by white walls – the stress created
by the hard, white energy can easily pass on to clients resulting in
no sales or unsatisfied customers.
High-tech electronic multi-tasking offices can be
balanced with soft green on the walls and wood furniture. Avoid
white here as well.
Deadline-oriented offices such as press rooms,
delivery organizations and media productions need to keep things
calm. They should use cool blue hues in their decor.
If you are in a home office and cannot seem to get
motivated, paint the walls white and surround yourself with less
wood and more metal objects. Focus is often a problem in a home
office – the white will give you that energetic tension needed for
focus and productivity.
Use art and wall décor to further enhance the purpose
of the office – those that encourage focus, productivity and
generate income. Use motivational art and posters that energize! Art
that shows success, teamwork and a winning attitude are great. Frame
them in silver or gold and hang them on west and northwest walls.
Family pictures in an office can be very distracting, so limit them
to either a small grouping or a collage in one frame – place them in
the southwest area of your desk or office to energize relationships,
both work and personal.
In the east and southeast area of your office,
energize both new business and wealth generation by adding plants
that reach upward like bamboo. If you do not have a green thumb use
great-looking silk plants or trees. You can also hang pictures of
magnificent redwood trees or sequoias to give added energy to income
Adding artwork with water in it on the north wall will
energize your career while providing a gentle flowing movement
throughout. Be sure the water in the picture has movement to it like
a flowing river rather than tumultuous waves crashing on the shore
or stagnant water with no movement. A small tabletop water fountain
with a gentle bubbling sound also works well. Make sure if you use
the fountain to run it every day and keep it filled with fresh
For meetings with clients, staff members and in
boardrooms, use a round or an oval table. The complete energy of the
oval or round table is conducive to negotiating, sales,
problem-solving and conducting productive meetings. If you need to
be “in charge” when sitting at this table, be sure to sit in the
power position which is opposite the door.
balancing your office for supportive energy and aligning your
personal design tastes with the type of work you do, you have the
formula for improved focus, productivity and more success. Creating
balance eliminates many of the energy drainers in your workplace and
an office should support you, your goals and objectives as well as
what you need to accomplish on a given day. A balanced and properly
energized office or business leads to a calmer, in-control, more
