Feng Shui is More Than Moving Furniture, New York Open Center


Positive Energy comes in many ways

Have you ever wondered which corner of your home corresponds with financial prosperity or how you kick off a project? And once you’ve found that corner, are you curious about what you place in that integral location to foster positive energy in those areas of your life?  And other than moving furniture or adding objects in your home, have you ever wondered how else you can balance your personal energy? Applied properly, Feng Shui can improve the quality of your life.  It does this by balancing your personal and environmental energy.  This allows you to experience more success at work, improved relationships, focus and clarity as well as better health

The principle of Feng Shui is that the world and our lives are guided by energy. Feng Shui can free up this energy and allow things in our lives to flow more smoothly. Rosalie Prinzivalli, MBA, BTB MFS, BTB Feng Shui™ Masters instructor and Program Director, and Judith Wendell, BS, BTB MFS, founder of Sacred Currents Feng Shui Integrative Design, will be at the Open Center’s Open House on September 6, 2015 at 9:00pm to talk about Feng Shui and personal chi, and offer a free preview of their one-day intensive on October 12, 2015 where you will learn about Feng Shui’s extraordinary analytical tools, potent Feng Shui adjustments, simple, powerful space-clearing methods and more. Be among the first to experience Rosalie & Judith’s approach to Feng Shui living. Register for the October 12 intensive on-site and receive an additional early-bird discount.


Is Your Office Killing Your Productivity?


Is your desk getting in the way of your productivity? Do you have papers and folders everywhere?  Clutter isn’t the only thing that will rob your focus — how the furniture is arranged and what you choose to place on your desk play a big role too. It’s called Feng Shui and I was able to learn about it from one of the great experts, Judith Wendell from SacredCurrents.com.  She’s given us a list of ways to make your office space work for you and allow you to be more efficient.

Office Productivity

8 Point Feng Shui Office Checklist for Success

by Judith Wendell

Many of us experience life as unpredictable. Insuring that our work spaces are supportive, is the purpose of Feng Shui. There are a few key Feng Shui principles (based on thousands of years of experience mind you) that will give you the edge you need to land the deal, get the client, dodge a bullet (or lay off) or be chosen for the award. At very least following the 8 point Feng Shui office checklist for success will offer you greater vitality and health at the office.

1. It is important to have a solid wall behind you. If that’s not possible then have the highest back chair you can. The further back you sit in a room the stronger your position.

2. Have a full view of the door without being in direct line with it and never sit behind the swing of your door. This is called the “command position.”

3. Never have your back to the door unless you have a reflective surface in front of you so that you can see the door and who may be standing behind you.

4. If your door faces a window — something as simple as hanging a crystal in the window can help the ‘chi’ or life force from flying out too quickly (with your business in hand!)

5. The further back you sit in your office the stronger your position.

6. Never work on a glass top table or desk – you may lose work or it may not be strong. If your desk must be glass, get a big blotter.

7. It is most favorable if your desk has front & side panels to protect you and your work.

8. Ideally your work should flow from left to right on your desk…from “new beginnings” to “completion.” The ‘bagua’ or Feng Shui template can be applied to a desk. When doing so the you will find that your ‘wealth’ area is in the upper left hand corner and your area of ‘recognition’ is in front of you on the far edge of the desk. What there now? Hopefully not an old coffee cup!

June 14, 2010 6 – 7:45 pm

Balancing Feng Shui involves far more than the judicious placement of physical objects. It is above all concerned with the optimal circulation and balancing of chi, the life energy that flows through us and permeates the universe. When Feng Shui focuses on adjusting our dwellings and workplaces it does so to create environments that foster the positive flow of chi to boost our health and vitality, harmonize our emotions and center our minds. In this class we will explore some of the core principles of Feng Shui, based on many of the same principles as traditional Chinese medicine, and look at how to use these principles to balance our energy both internally (in the organs in our body) and externally, in our homes and work spaces. Other topics covered will include: how to position objects and furnishings to maximize chi flow; the use of color and design to relieve stress; what Feng Shui can do to help us lessen our financial worries and stress; simple exercises that can greatly enhance our personal chi; and more.
