I know what it feels like to want a fresh new start. I had to make one when I decided to become an entrepreneur. Everything about this change was scary to me. But one thing that I had working in my favor is Feng Shui. Redecorating according to the rules of Feng Shui seemed to bring in clients for me almost effortlessly.
You may be wondering how you can improve your chances of getting a new career. Well, first, it starts with introspection. What do you want to do? Should you continue up the ladder at your current job? Or should you take a plunge and try something new. It is critical for you to know this because this will help guide you when you redecorate. When you get clear on your goal, then get started with decluttering. Then, find the career area of your home. It is located in the front, middle quadrant of your home. In most homes, the front door is located where the career area is.
If you can turn this area into your home office, this is perfect. However, if your space is too small to accommodate an office, the next best thing you can do is adorn the area with something that will make Feng Shui work. Below, I will discuss both options.
Converting the Career Area to a Home Office
If this has been an area collecting junk, now is the time to get rid of the junk and make this a home office. Even if you never use the home office, redecorating it will help on a subliminal level. So, clear the junk from this area and set up a desk, computer, and other things that make this area feel like an office. Once you have made it comfortable, make sure that you incorporate some key items in the area that make the Feng Shui work. This could include a water fountain. You could also incorporate a metal desk or file cabinet. Some other things you could add here are black-colored items. If your current items are outdated, consider getting new stuff like a new printer or laptop. You can also add helpful things to the area like a calculator, a music player (I like to listen to jazz in my home office), a few trade magazines, pens, paper, and other office things you may need.
Improving the Career Area Without Making it a Home Office
If you don’t have the room to make this area into an office, you can still incorporate some of these things to improve. For instance, you can add an aquarium or a picture of a gentle waterfall. You could also add black-colored items such as draperies or black and white photos of something. Another good thing you can add to this area is a black bookshelf with books about the future career you are seeking. For instance, if you aspire to be a manager, place your management books here. Or, if you would like to learn accounting or tax management, put your tax books here. Not only will you get a boost on a subliminal level, but this may also encourage you to read the books since they are concentrated in one area. If you have some art made of metal, particularly gray metal or black metal art, this is a good place for it.
Another good idea of items to add here is things or images associated with what you want to do in the future. For instance, if you’re going to be a nurse, place a stethoscope or thermometer here. Or if you’re going to be a writer, maybe you can put an oversized pen in the area. Or you could do like I do and put a movie clapperboard in the area (I eventually want to become a film and TV writer). Whatever you desire to become, devote this area to your dream so that every time you walk past it, you are inspired to take action on your future career. This area is like creating a dream board. But instead of a board, you will create a dream collage of your career.
Don’t spend another year in a rut. Instead, start decluttering and decorating a part of your home using Feng Shui for success.
