Some might say nothing or what a whole lot of B….t!! However, companies such as Sony, Coca Cola, Citibank, Proctor and Gamble and Shell would say “Everything”!
Penny Spencer, of Spencer Travel, Sydney, a highly successful entrepreneur and leader within her industry had approached me with an opportunity. Due to Spencer Travels’ success they had outgrown their current premises and were moving within the same building to a much larger space. Whilst they had already had the office Feng Shui architecturally designed, Penny asked me for a “Feng Shui Consultation” and an “Energy Clearing”, due to a recent serious flood they had experienced.
Water in Feng Shui represents the “flow of money” or lack thereof. However, I wondered, what more could I add when the interior had been Feng Shui designed? It’s important to understand energy, people and time.
PEOPLE + POSITIVE SPACE = Dynamic Energy
Penny’s intentions were clear. She had a specific turnover that she wished to achieve due to increased expenses. There are many things we look at when doing a 360 Degree Feng Shui Consultation. We are constantly hunting for that “Eureka” moment, where we un-cover the underlying theme or missing link for the space, the business and its people.
The offices were beautiful, and upon entry I noticed that all of the staff were either seated down the middle or the left hand side of the office where the windows were located. Down the right hand side of the office there were at least 7-9 desks that were unoccupied with the accounts department at the rear.
The right hand side of the space just so happened to be located within the compass direction “North” and in the southern hemisphere North is where the height of the midday sun is. In Feng Shui, this means abundance, vitality, height of productivity, expansion. Currently there was absolutely NO ACTIVITY happening in this area of the business!
The solution was to set each desk up with a computer and telephone as if there were people already there. Place specific art-work and plants in the area to support the expansion and activate the energy.
Penny did this straight away and implemented many other recommendations provided in the final report. Immediately, contracts that had been pending for months began to close, and the most wonderful thing happened within 2 weeks.
Penny was approached by a senior travel consultant who worked for a competitor and whose company was going through a merger. She and six other senior consultants were not happy and they wanted to move, with one pre-requisite. They must move together. There was only one company they wanted to work for and that was Spencer Travel!
Penny engaged them immediately and needless to say her company grew significantly and quickly, surpassing her intended increased turnover.
Intention is powerful. Energy is powerful. A new pair of eyes, trained to look at space, the occupants in the space, and how to go about connecting the business with the space, is also very powerful.
Feng Shui and its ancient philosophies allows you to see the wood for the trees, to see clearly, unblock the blocks and reignite the positive energy.
If you would like to enhance and improve the energy within your space and support your people and company vision then please contact me for a 360 degree Feng Shui Consultation.
