Feng Shui for a Prosperous Home Office

 The home office is a special place of power, suitable for finding both the concentration and reflection paths to prosperity and success. Your home office is also the central place where you create your productivity, creativity and efficiency.
So, creating the perfect home office is an essential secret to success to both your personal and professional life. Whether you utilize your home office to work from home, do follow up correspondence from a day at the office, pay bills, make investments or surf the web, a well designed and organized office can be very inspirational. Having an efficient office will allow a free flow of energy around the space which can help your thoughts to flow. Ideally the home office should be free from distractions and designed in a way that is professional but still has the comforts of home. Fortunately you have creative control over your office at home, so the furniture can be more comfortable and plush, you can decorate it with inspirational artwork, family photos, plants and fresh flowers.  Your home office can come with a view, an operable window, fresh air and lush landscaping or a forest, possibly a pool view or a view of a lake or an ocean.
If you are using your office for artistic ventures such as writing, drafting, painting and so on, your office would be better located at the back of your home. Anything that requires more focus and attention to detail should be in a space that is quiet for concentration. If you are using this space for a more professional nature where you need to meet with clients, the office should be at the front of your home. Preferably there should be a window with a view of your front entryway so you can be ready to meet clients when they come. Be sure the entryway is free of clutter and the office space has a separate doorway if it means that people will have to travel through your living space to get to it.
There are many color schemes you can use to Feng Shui your home office. Depending on what you are using this space for, if you are using it as a home-based business, metal elements would be good to introduce into this space. You can apply more high energy with bold and bright colors, which activate the fire element. This will help to energize your career efforts and help you to gain recognition and success. These colors include purple, pink, red, orange and a bright yellow. Use them as accent colors and paint the rest of the room a more neutral color.
You should not sit with your back to a window, as this creates a lack of support. If you cannot alter this arrangement, have a credenza behind you that you can place a plant on to prevent your wealth energy from escaping out the window. If your desk is positioned directly across from a door, it is bad luck and will cause you misfortune. The best position for your desk is to have it sitting on a diagonal from the doorway. You can sit facing a window if your doorway is to your left or right. If you are sitting facing a wall, try using some vibrant artwork or wall shelves with decorative objects or family photos on it. Your desk should not be up against a bathroom plumbing wall if you can avoid it, this is bad luck. Do not have your desk directly underneath an exposed beam, as this presses down on your luck and negatively impacts your health.

Be mindful of the quality of air and the quality of light (natural and artificial) in your home office, as these are two of the good feng shui must-haves. 

If your brain is starving for oxygen and your body does not get enough natural light, you will not enjoy being in your home office no matter how much you love your job.

Remember: "clutter" drains your energy and dampens your best intentions, you need to create a clear system, and not let clutter ruin your health and your business.

A room with a view is ideal!

Feng Shui works in limited spaves

Keep the doorway to your left or right & lots of light

Feng Shui is about creating balance

Just a corner with good light and organization will work

Keep it simple and clutter free

If you are facing a wall, use your favorite artwork as the view
