  3. 3. Form Feng Shui in OfficeWe begin by looking at the disposition of furniture. I provided three simple tips in my blog,Feng Shui DIY, that help to improve office Feng Shui, and two of them are related to Formfactors. Why? Because these changes are simple to make yet bring great effects. Here I’llgive a full explanation of the Form Feng Shui requirements in office.The Perfect Desk SettingBelow is the top view of a good office desk setting. In regardless of directions andcalculations, this is how an office should look like (the colors are irrelevant, just forillustration purpose here, we shall learn about Feng Shui color later). Computer / Cabinet on Desk Desk Seat Full Height Solid Wall 3
  4. 4. Back - Solid WallIt is of paramount importance to have a solid wall at the back. Why? It means support byothers and particularly your superior, which is critical to every person working in an office.If the back of your seat is not firm and stable, e.g. an aisle, the sign of “flow” and“movement” would affect your career life.This is why in ancient China the emperors usually located their palace in front of a hill. Ifyou consider the palace as a whole as a working place, the hill at the back is a strongsupport. If you have been to the Forbidden City (故宮) in Beijing in China, you could see ahill called Jing Shan (景山) behind the palace, in the past Jing (景) literally means big.The problem is, not everyone has the privilege to have his own room in the office. Manypeople only have a desk with an aisle at the back. No problem, we can “create” an artificialback support.We can use material, color and quantity to build artificial Feng Shui. Basically you shouldlook for these:  Material: stone or earth  Color: yellow or brown  Quantity: Eight (8)The first two are quite simple. The last strategy, which many Feng Shui practitioners use, isborrowed from Flying Star Feng Shui because the number 8 is of “earth” characteristic.When I worked in an office as a summer intern (it was long long time ago…), my seat was inthe middle of the office, no wall behind, only an aisle where people walk here and there. It 4
  5. 5. was terrible Feng Shui. What I did was to hang a brown jacket on the back of the chair. Itlooks like a big brown object is behind my seat. Pretty simple, right?Some people are a little bit luckier, they have a low-rise cabinet or partition behind. Not afull-height solid wall, but not really bad. In this cast, you can place eight pebbles behind theseat, in this arrangement (six in the middle, one below and one above):Higher-Left Lower–RightAccording to Form Feng Shui theory, left means benefactors (support) while right is badperson (challenge). In the past, when people find a location to build a house, they look forplaces where the mountain on the left is higher than the right.We re-create the same in the office. The best situation is you have a full-height cabinet onthe left hand side of the desk. If not, put the desktop computer or piles of documents onthe left hand side of the desk. The ultimate goal is to have a higher-left and lower-right.The RoomAfter looking at the desk, we zoom out to look at the whole room. 5
  6. 6. Desk SeatThe above is a preferred placement of your desk in your room in the office. If you sit in acubicle instead of a room, the same principle applies although there may be no door.The advantages of this setting are:  Your back is supported by a wall  You can see the door when sitting while the door does not directly open into the desk  The desk is located in a corner. Chi accumulates at corners, so you sit at where there is Chi to support you. 6
  7. 7. Desk SeatThe above setting is also good because it satisfies the three criteria above.Now you know how to choose a good location to place our desk, right? Simply apply theabove criteria, you can put your desk at the best location. 7

  9. 9. The Flying StarsWe have completed the crash course on Form Feng Shui for office, now you begin to “learn”some calculation. Traditionally this is the most difficult part of Feng Shui because beforeyou do any calculation, you must learn fundamental theories including the five elements, I-Qing, 9 flying stars, etc.I want to make this “quick start guide” as practical as possible. I want you to start doingFeng Shui in 5 minutes. So instead of spending 200 pages on these theories, I’ll cut cornersby not telling you how to arrive at the answers and tell you the answers straightaway. Soyou’ll not “learn” the formula, you’ll get the fruit and enjoy directly.The following is the flying star map of 2012. Please note that according to traditional FengShui theories the map is printed upside down, i.e. South is on top. I have highlighted thelucky directions in yellow. 9
  10. 10. South 5 1 3 (San Sha 三煞) 4 6 8 9 2 7 NorthSo for year 2012, East, South and West are good directions for office Feng Shui. However,South is also where San Sha appears in 2012. So the strategy is not to carry out any buildingworks or fitting out in South direction. Besides, avoid placing anything “dynamic” there,such as a Hi-Fi audio system or a pendulum clock.For your convenience, I have separately printed the flying maps for 2012 to 2016 in thebonus document – Feng Shui Office Action Guide. 10
  11. 11. Your Personal Feng ShuiNow we come to the final part of our Feng Shui office quick start guide. We’ll see how tomanage your personal Feng Shui needs, the “people” factor. Again, I’ll cut the corners andshow you what to do instead of going through the difficult theories that only Feng Shuimasters would ever want to know.Your Personal Lucky ColorsI have provided a list of lucky colors for each and every zodiac signs in my blog(http://fengshuidiy.com/feng-shui-colors-find-the-best-feng-shui-colors-for-you/). Here is are-cap of it:Rat: Gold, Silver, White, Blue, Gray and BlackOx: Red, Purple, Orange, Yellow, BrownTiger: Blue, Gray, Black, Green, LimeRabbit: Blue, Gray, Black, Green LimeDragon: Red, Purple, Orange, Yellow, BrownSnake: Green, Lime, Red, Purple, OrangeHorse: Green, Lime, Red, Purple, OrangeSheep: Red, Purple, Orange, Yellow, BrownMonkey: Yellow, Brown, Gold, Silver, WhiteRooster: Yellow, Brown, Gold, Silver, WhiteDog: Red, Purple, Organe, Yellow, BrownPig: Gold, Silver, White, Blue, Gray, Black 11
  12. 12. Photo by LifeSupercharger, CC LicencePersonal lucky colors help to increase your luck. One possible use of these colors is to usepersonal accessories in these tones when you go to work. Besides, if you have an importantmeeting, pick a tie or dress in anyone of these colors. 12
  13. 13. Frequently Asked QuestionsCan I Apply Office Feng Shui Principles to My Home Office? And How?If you mainly work inside your study room (e.g. you are a programmer working at home),and you spend the non-working hours in the living room, dining room and kitchen, youcould consider the study room as a separate entity.In Feng Shui there is a saying, “一物一太極”, meaning that everything could be a separateuniverse with its own center and eight directions. You could apply the Feng Shui principles Itaught in the previous chapters only to the study room. Find out the center point of thestudy room and identify the eight directions. Determine if the door of the study room islocated in a good direction and layout the room to meet the Feng Shui office requirements.Then consider the house as a separate entity. Of course, if the study room is located in agood direction inside the house, that would be even better.Some people use the front part of their houses as a shop to sell homemade products orservices, and live right in the rear part of the house. In this case, you first consider thewhole house as a single entity to allocate the key usages (i.e. common entrance door,bedroom, business section and kitchen) to good directions. Then you could divide thehouse into home and business sections and analyze the Feng Shui separately as if they areindividual buildings.A third situation is the co-location of office and home in the same building but havingseparated entrance doors for each use. In this case, you could simply consider the twodifferent parts as two houses and analyze separately. Actually in this case the building is thesame as the merger of two separate houses together. With separate entrance doors andproper separation of uses, the Chi in two areas would not communicate. 13
  14. 14. If for some reasons you cannot ensure that both parts have good Feng Shui and you areforced to decide on which part to take up the best section of the house, I suggest thedomestic part should prevail. Experience told us that the Feng Shui of your home affectsyour health, career, relationship… in a more all-round manner, while office Feng Shui mainlyaffects the career. In some cases where the office Feng Shui could not be changed, merelyadjusting the home Feng Shui could still bring improvement in career. So the home FengShui should prevail.Do the Feng Shui Requirements Differ for Different Trades?This Feng Shui guide is written specifically for the working class who mainly work inside anoffice. Most of the requirements could be applied to situations where the person works in afixed space, may it be an office room, a cubicle or simply a desk. For example, the principalof a junior school could apply the same principles to his own room, just as an accountantapplies these principles to his room. So the job nature does not make the Feng Shuirequirements significantly different.However, different trades do have their respective five-element characters. For the choiceof colors (e.g. for interior decoration in the office), you may consider using therepresentative colors of the trade according to the five-element characters to maximizeyour luck.Metal – Gold, Silver, WhiteBanking, finance, metal equipment manufacturing and processing, steel, wire and cableindustry, jewelry, machinery, precision industry, insurance, automotive, computer products,electrical appliances, electronic parts, motors, watch, securities dealers, mining, musicians,military, scientists 14
  15. 15. Water – Blue, BlackAthletes, sales agents, real estate agents, lawyers, parliamentarians, book/news editor, filmdirector, comic, reporters, physicians, otolaryngologists, urologists, psychiatrists,gynecologists, accountants, nurses, philosopher, tourism, transportation, aviation, cleaning,shipping, telecommunications, laundry, refrigeration, fire protection, trading, retail,transportation, logistics and other mobility industries.Wood – Green, LimeJudges, teachers, musicians, textile, cultural undertakings, printing and publishing, flowergardening, herb shops, stationery, book stores, agricultural, timber, woodworking, furniture,paper, wood technology, education, department stores, civil servants, religious leader,politician, culture and education, clothing, nanny, social workers, industries using wood asraw material, secretaries, Chinese medicine practitioners, lawyers, forestry and other wood-related industries.Fire – Red, Purple, OrangePhotographic equipment, eyewear, military, computer, electronics, telecommunications,optics, oil industry, tobacco and alcohol, vendor of lighting fittings, critics, salon and beautyindustry, chemical engineering, restaurants, hot drinks and snacks, gas and oil, ceramics,coal industry, food processing, welding, nuclear power industry, giftware industry,information industry, energy, electricity, advertising, media, news, entertainment, apparel,fireworks, food and beverage and fire-related industriesEarth – Yellow, Earth-toneReal estate, geography, dermatologists, construction, judges, calligrapher, art galleries,painters, cement processing, building materials, cosmetics, real estate transactions, stoneand stoneware industry, pawn, livestock, ceramics, antiques, nurseries, mining, buildingfoundation, farming, demolition industry, taxation, land acquisition, civil engineering, roadconstruction, agriculture and soil-related industries. 15
  16. 16. There are a few remarks. Firstly, you would be able to find some industries belonging tomore than one element. Why? Because these industries possess the natures of more thanone elements. For example, while gold mining is metal-related, the nature of the work isearth. So mining could be found under “metal” and “earth” elements. Similarly, real estateagents’ job relates to land but they need to go here and there, so this job belongs to both“earth” and “water”.Secondly, what if you cannot find your specific trade? You could tell the five-elementcharacteristic by analyzing the nature of the job. For example, if it has high mobility, itbelongs to water.Thirdly, the colors are applied in relation to the trades, you should not mix them up withyour personal lucky colors. You may wear a tie in your best color while having your officepainted in the best color of your trade. Of course, if your personal lucky colors are the sameas your trade’s lucky colors, this is a perfect match.Please also note that the whole purpose of this guidebook is to help people to do Feng Shuifor office. Retail shops and restaurants are different. For instance, the Feng Shui of thehead office of a restaurant chain is what this guidebook is written for, but the restaurantsshould follow another set of Feng Shui principles that are not exactly the same.Why? We talk about the nature of activities carried out. A retail shop is where goods aredisplayed and the actual buy and sell carries out. The Feng Shui focus is on the mainentrance (where customers come in) and the cashier (where the shop owner receivesmoney). Similarly, the entrance, kitchen and cashier are the most important for arestaurant. 16
  17. 17. On the other hand, an office is where decision-making, communication and paper works arecarried out. Conference rooms and each person’s own room and cubicles are the mostcritical areas to Feng Shui.Unless right inside your shop there is an office where you sit in front of the computer toanswer emails, receive calls, plan your business and make decisions, then you could applyFeng Shui office principles to that particular room. The office inside a restaurant couldfollow the Feng Shui office principles.This may sound a bit confusing but if you read the above again, you should be able tounderstand. If you still don’t understand, shoot me an email.Do the Feng Shui Requirements Differ for Different Buildings?The nature of the building is not significantly material. The same principles apply to anoffice in a commercial building in the central business district in the same way as a homeoffice in a residential building.However, the shape of a building could matter. A triangular building belongs to the fireelement, so it is most suitable for a business belonging to the fire element. Since this FengShui Office guidebook is written mainly for the working class who usually do not havecontrol over the building, I did not mention this in previous chapters. As a reference, hereare the five elements and shapes combinations:Square – EarthLong rectangular – WoodTriangular – FireCircular – Metal 17
  18. 18. Wave – WaterSimilarly, you could also read the five-element of the floor number:Last digit is 1 and 6 – WaterLast digit is 2 and 7 – FireLast digit is 3 and 8 – WoodLast digit is 4 and 9 – MetalLast digit is 5 and 0 – EarthSo, the head office of a financial institution (metal) should be located in a circular buildingon the 4th, 9th, 14th, 19th, 24th, 29th, etc. floor.See? As an employee you don’t really have a choice. And even if you are the businessowner would it be easy to find a building in wave shape if you business belongs to the waterelement? So in most cases I simply ignore the shape of the building.Do I Need to Buy Feng Shui Accessories?Yes and no. Many Feng Shui masters are advocates of expensive Feng Shui accessories. I’mnot. There is nothing wrong with using these items, but I simply think they areUNNECESSARY.Proper Feng Shui practices are found on the calculation of five-elements. By using items ofthe right quantity, color and shape, we could easily leverage the power of five elements.And I use only commonly found items such as flower, wind chimes, pebbles, etc. The best ofall, these self-made Feng Shui accessories are not expensive. Say, even if you work in a 18
  19. 19. kindergarten or a county jail where some objects could not be used, you can paint the wallof the office in a specific lucky color to Feng Shui your office.If you feel more comfortable with using commercially-sold Feng Shui accessories, aconvenient place to shop them is Amazon (do you know Amazon sells Feng Shui productsapart from books?). 19
