How can you energetically set up your office so it supports you to do the work you’re here to do?

Helen Joy Butler - Office Elemental Space Clearing® quote

Have you ever wondered if your office or workspace is set up the right way for you?

And importantly, if it energetically supports you to do what you need to do when you’re in it?

Many of us know a little about Feng Shui and the concept of having your back to the door – which is a huge no-no! I remember having an office years ago, where the only way to sit was with my back to the door. I felt super uncomfortable with it and so went searching for energetic ways to improve how I felt in the space. At the time the advice I found was to put a mirror on the wall, which sat at about eye height and which I could look into easily. This small addition to my workspace did help me feel more comfortable. Glancing into it like a rear view mirror on a car, I was able to see what was going on behind me. It worked a treat!

I know you’ve felt this intuitively. That if you have your back to the door you feel a unprotected and / or unsupported. You may not have been consciously aware that this was the reason why, but something inside of you said “this doesn’t feel right” – and my guess is that you either did something about it OR nothing about it, deciding to ignore that inner voice and plugging along anyway.

So how does this relate to your office?

Let me share a story with you.

A few months ago one of our lovely Sanctuary Creators Tribe member shared this post in our private Facebook group.

“Hi ladies, I am in the process of rearranging my home office (my only office!).

I had always envisaged my desk under the window and a small couch or comfortable chair or two in the room, plus bookshelves. Now that I’m living in the space, I’m less sure of the desk under the window as it faces directly onto the street and everyone walking past can see me. I fear it would be very distracting when I’m working with a client. 

To date my desk has been on the wall with the door, so I can see to my right the door and to the left the window. I’m wondering whether any of you can share how your home office is configured and how that works for you? Thank you in advance!”

Good question right?

This lady knew where she put her furniture didn’t feel right and would be distracting to her.

But how does she work out where her desk should sit in the space, without lugging all of her furniture around and killing her back?

I’m hoping my answers to this lady’s post will help!

My first comment was – Where is a good spot to locate the desk so you can see the doorway? I’ve had my office furniture in three different positions over the past six years and feel I’ve finally got it right!

This isn’t to say that in the three different positions I’ve tried with my own office I wasn’t able to see the door – I was. It just means that when I first moved into the space I liked my desk a certain way, then decided to move it, and then again – all over a period of about five years – until I find the perfect spot for me!

My second comment to this gorgeous lady’s post was – What if you took your desk chair, placed it facing the window, closed your eyes and felt into your body. Does this direction feel good? If so go with it! If not, move your chair 90 degrees and do the same. Keep going until you find the right direction for you to sit.

Hmmm … how does that feel to you?

What if you took your desk chair, placed it in a position in your office where you could move freely, and simply sat – to feel into how this position feels for you?

Yes you will have to get still. Yes you will have to slow down and block out the noise and perhaps do this at a time when there’s no-one else in the office, but what if you gave it a try?

And what if, after doing this little activity, you felt better sitting in a certain direction?

Sure you may feel great sitting in the same direction as your desk currently faces and that’s brilliant! But if I was to reflect on the three different locations my desk has been in my current office, I can tell you that the direction I am facing now is exactly the same direction I faced when I first set my office up over six years ago. The direction hasn’t changed – but the location of my desk certainly has.

Where you sit in your office, where you place your furniture, the people who spend time with you in it, and the energy accumulated from the interactions you have during your workday all play a part in how happy you are to do your work.

Importantly, an office is usually a space you spend a lot of time in, whether it’s a place you travel to every day, in a spare bedroom, a nook in your lounge room corner, a co-working space or in your bedroom. And this space, in turn, can affect your overall happiness and success in your chosen field.

This is why I’ve decided to create a new Space Clearing offering specifically for your office or workspace.
