The career corner is located in the middle quadrant at the front of the home. Typically the main door where you enter your home is where the career quadrant is. This area of the house is related to your success within a business or at a job. It doesn’t necessarily have to be related to your success at your current job, either. Improving this area could bring success to your existing business or place of work. Or it can help you get on the road to where you want to go in life. I spoke about improving the career corner in a past blog post. However, my focus was on improving the area by adding an auspicious item to the area. This time, I want to do what I did in the previous fame article and talk about how something in this area may be causing problems with your ability to get ahead in your career.
Does It Seem Like Your Career Is Stuck?
Have you been practicing Feng Shui using the tips that I provide or using the information others have written on the topic? But for some reason, your career seems to be stuck in the pits? Perhaps you have added things to the area like water which is a typical improvement element. Still, you do not see changes or results. Well, just like with the fame area problem that I discussed last month, this area may have a problem, too. So, if you have lots of water elements in this area and you are still having trouble getting ahead in your career, this could be because you may also have another element in this area that is blocking your energy.
Earthy Stuff Doesn’t Belong Here
Perhaps without realizing it, you thought it would be a good idea to include a potted house plant in this area. After all, this is the career corner, and maybe you have a desk located in this area. Or maybe your logic made you think that having a plant in this area would translate to growth for your career. Unfortunately, this may be undermining your progress. Also, any other earthy colors such as red, orange, brown, or yellow may be doing severe damage in this area. It would be a good idea to remove these items or colors from this area and focus on colors and elements conducive to the career corner. These include, of course, water fountains, metal, and black-colored items. Mirrors may also work well here because they are water elements.
Take a look around your career area. Do you see anything in the area that is yellow, orange, red, or brown? Is there wood in the area? Anything that is an earth element could be causing issues here, including a wood chair. Opt for a metal chair, instead. If you have a plant in this area, try to move it to a place where it will be much more helpful such as your family/ancestry area. Then, the plant can be more useful at making your family unit stronger instead of hindering your career success.
Try this improvement in this area. Then, come back next month and comment on how this Feng Shui improvement is manifesting change in your life. By then, I will have another improvement for you to try. Don’t forget to share your comments in the comments section.
