FISCAL FENG SHUI
Feng Shui may seem like superstition, but top
corporations such as Citibank and Chase use it in their
offices to maximize their business potential. Here’s what
can you do to increase your financial flow.

Stylish, welcoming entrances for both the office and home will beg
opportunities to come knocking.
While on the subject of entrances, be sure that your building or office
suite has prominent numbers so good chi can find you.
To avoid negative energy from previous users, get a new desk. Never
work at a desk with missing corners or otherwise incomplete.
Never sit with your back to the door. If you have no choice, hang a
mirror so you’re not blindsided by bad karma — or unwelcomed guests.
BE IN CHARGE
If possible, position yourself so that your desk is the farthest from the
entrance to the room as possible. This is the “command” position.
Put your computer in the north or west of your office for creativity, in
the southeast if it’s used to produce income.
Water symbolizes both money and emotions. Don’t let a drip in the
men’s room ruin the company’s outlook. Nor your emotional wellbeing.
Fountains are an ancient symbol of abundance in all cultures, not just
feng shui. An alternative is a photo or painting of fast-flowing water.
Healthy, thriving plants in an office are seen as a sign that finances are
growing. Don’t have a green thumb? Get an easily tended money plant
or lucky bamboo.
