For full disclosure, I should let you know that I wrote this article on Monday, and scheduled it to be shared on Wednesday at 3 PM Eastern Time.
So at the moment of writing this, I had no idea who the next president of the USA will be. As you are reading it, you may be celebrating or in distress.
In election years, feelings of impotence are common. There are so many things that you, as an individual, cannot control. I wrote this article to remind you that Feng Shui is something you can control. Something you can do at home or at work, to improve conditions for your family and your co-workers.
So I do not offend anybody’s political affiliations, I used a cat in place of the president, to illustrate aspects of bad Feng Shui in the oval office.
In a TV skit with President Obama, Stephen Colbert was pretending to help Obama find his next job. When asked what he was looking for, Obama said that he was hoping for a corner office some time — or even just an office with corners.
People instinctively place themselves parallel to walls, so having no straight walls can be unsettling.
Today, however, I want to emphasize that the worst aspect of Feng Shui in the oval office is that the President does not have the Power Position.
No Power Position
The president of the USA, arguably the person with most power in the world, does not sit in the Power Position.
In the power position, you have a solid wall behind you. As you can see, instead of a solid wall, the president has 3 windows.
The worst part of the Feng Shui in the Oval Office is when they choose not to close those curtains at night. Check it out:
At night, chi (the life force) escapes rapidly out windows with no treatments. Aesthetically, it is equivalent to having hung very large pieces of completely black artwork on your walls.
Furthermore, the Oval Office is located on the ground floor. Without the Secret Service agents, the President would be vulnerable to any attack. Anyone would just startle him by tapping at the window, as Jerry Springfield did in an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, when he went to pick up Obama.
Feng Shui dictates that a President or a CEO should not have his or her offices on the ground floor. The office should be located at the back of the building, in the most private and protected area. This location allows the President or CEO to have peace and quiet to make good decisions. It also discourages from having too many people asking for audiences.
Where has the Feng Shui University gone?
Some of you have mentioned that you used to check out a page on my website called the Feng Shui University, and now you cannot find it.
The Feng Shui University page is still were it has always been, however, there is no longer a link to it from the navigation menu, as I am working on moving all the articles on www.fengshuiforus.com to www.ninestepstofengshui.com.
When I built my first website www.fengshuiforus.com, you could not check out websites from smart phones. Smart phones were rare and not that smart yet. I built the website to be seen on a computer, not on a tiny screen. It is definitely not mobile friendly. That is why in 2015 I created another website, with a blog, that is mobile friendly www.ninestepstofengshui.com.
Soon, all my articles will be available on my new site www.ninestepstofengshui.com. In the meantime, you can still access the Feng Shui University webpage via a direct link: http://www.fengshuiforus.com/feng-shui-university.html Make sure to save this email so you can access the link, or bookmark the page once it opens, so you can go back to it.
