Applying the Feng Shui Ba Gua to Your Desk for Increased Success
We've talked about how to apply the Feng Shui Ba Gua
to a room, a whole house or apartment and even a yard. But you can also
apply the Feng Shui Ba Gua to a desk for increased business or
financial success. The Feng Shui Ba Gua Made Easy
diagram shows the eight trigrams of the Feng Shui Ba Gua and the areas
of life they correspond to. When you lay the Feng Shui Ba Gua out over
your desk, use the space you sit, where you place your chair, as the

back left corner of your desk is the wealth and prosperity area, with
fame and reputation in the back center, and then love and marriage in
the far right. In front of love and marriage is the creativity and

Activating Sections of the Feng Shui Ba Gua on Your Desk
people will want to concentrate on specific areas of their business --
notably, wealth and prosperity, fame and reputation, knowledge and
wisdom, creativity, or travel and helpful people. It depends on where
you are in life and in your business -- and what business you're in.
Here are some ideas to activate these sections of the Feng Shui Ba Gua. 1.
To empower the wealth and prosperity corner, consider adding a money
tree plant to help your business grow. For the relationship corner,
consider adding a desk lamp to shine light on the relationship you have
with your customers and co-workers.2.
activate the travel section, either because you hope to travel more
frequently for business, want business trips go more smoothly or because
your business is related to travel, empower this segment of the Ba Gua
with items that remind you of successful trips you've taken. Have a
coffee mug from your favorite trade show spot? Keep it at your right
hand, filled with your favorite hot beverage for a pick-me-up and
inspiration. To attract helpful people, keep a book by someone you'd
like to be a mentor in that spot. 3.
be very powerful in Feng Shui. The color black is associated with
career. To empower this trigram of the Ba Gua, consider placing an
object of this color on this section of your desk.
When you use
the Feng Shui Ba Gua on your desk, it's important not to clutter your
desk with a variety of useless objects, trying to empower every section
of the Ba Gua. Choose one or two areas to focus and one or two objects
with real purpose and meaning.
Most importantly, keep your desk
tidy -- every object should have a purpose and, when you end your work
for the day, you should clear everything off, leaving no unfinished
business, which could affect your sleep and leisure time.
