The other day I went into an office and there “it” was. The furniture in the reception area looked comfortable, thepaintings on the wall were attractive, and the color of the room was relaxing. Looking past that I saw “it”, piles of magazines covering all of the end tables. There were magazines on the floor next to the sofa and in a chair, probably left by a former client. What did the condition of the reception area say about the professionals and their business? As a feng shui consultant I knew the professionals occupying the space did not have enough clients or money and they were having communication problems.
Let's take a look at this situation from a feng shui perspective. Our beliefs about ourselves, our business, and our success are reflected in the spaces we create. Those same beliefs determine how we arrange the furniture in our space, what pictures and art we choose and how we display it, the colors we surround ourselves with, and the placement of all objects in our space, including the number of magazines. We determine how we arrange our spaces and our spaces effect our peace of mind, the image we give to others, and our performance . The reverse is also true. When we organize our space using feng shui priciples to empower success and harmony then our beliefs adjust so we can perform from a place of ease and well being. Your beliefs effect your spaces and your spaces effect your beliefs. It is like the saying what came first, the chicken or the egg? You can't have one without the other.
