Everything is going smooth at your work place and one fine day either you have a new peer to interact who is having a typical ‘boss’ attitude  or a colleague who has joined and not too friendly.  Having dealt with friendly co-workers and boss, at times you reach a phase in your career where you have to handle unpleasant office situations, politics, negativity, bullying boss and annoying co-workers.

Adapting Feng Shui can create the right harmony and ensure that such unpleasant situations do not occur. Explore the possibility of re-arranging your work desk and if you are in the cubicle type seating, you do not have much choice, yet you could do few things. Ensure you don’t sit with your back to entry/exit , try to add more lights ( if you can) to your work desk  in the from of desk lamps, you could place small plants with round leaves a bamboo plant in water is also considered good when placed towards the North of your desk space. A whiff of freshness in the form of small air fresheners especially lime or citronella based flavour would dispel the negative chi around your workspace,

Add colors in the form of pin ups or posters (it could be motivational posters too). You could even have small hand towels on your chair arm rest with yang colors like red, yellow and orange. Colors like Green and purple would be more appropriate for those in sales.

If your have the privilege at your work place to display some Feng Shui symbolism then placing a amethyst gem tree enhances good relationship with your workmates and controls tempers. Placing a figurine of Rooster or the mythical Dragon Horse known as Chilin’s will counter petty office politics, and counterproductive energy.

Remember, Feng Shui would be supportive to you if you can stand up for yourself when things don’t go the way it should.
