Feng Shui Symbols:
Career Corner: representations of the career you have, would like to have, or that you want to be more fulfilling. An attorney might like to use an unusual scale, a nautical architect might have famous ship blueprints framed and hung.
As we start each new year, give some thought to two areas of the energy map that are frequently related: career and wealth. Career is represented by the wall of the main door of entry to your home or office. It is symbolized by the colors black and blue and the element water.
Essential oils for this area: black pepper, cinnamon, ginger, patchouli, and vetiver. You spend about half your waking hours doing it, so consider these questions. Does it jibe with your goals for the kind of life you would like to live?
Do you spend your work and free time engaged in similar pursuits? Does your career truly reflect the kind of person you are on the inside? Do you really like your work and truly enjoy going to work? Does your work bring joy to you, your family, those who are in your industry, and those who use your products, services or talents? Is your workplace environmentally friendly? We know that the root chakra corresponds with the career gua. Both speak of your life path and being rooted in Mother Earth.
If you are not stable in your finances and your sense of self in the world as the root chakra teaches, how can you know what your life path is? Your life path may mean finding a job you love instead of just one that pays well. The wealth area is in the far left hand corner when you enter your home or office. It is symbolized by purple and the element wood. Essential oils: bergamot, atlas cedarwood, cypress, frankincense, and ginger.
Wealth is a lot more than material riches. Wealth is also about wealth of spirit, friendship, and relationships. It is about giving and receiving in equal proportions. Consider these questions. Do you have enough money so that you are financially fit? Are you generous with your wealth - whether that is time, money, love or talents? Do you give as much as you receive? Do you judge people by how much money they have or by the good works that they do? Are you quick to share? These are all the domain of the third chakra, the seat of will. With the power of will, you can draw to you all the abundance the earth has to offer.
For a better job or a better relationship you need will. By using your will to accomplish these things, you can gain abundance in wealth and love.
