The 10 Energy Keys of Business And How To Use Them

Everything is energy; quantum physicists are proving that daily, and that includes your business. If your business feels stuck or you know it could be better, this is vital information you can use right away. Knowing these triggers as keys to unlocking your business potential can save you time, resources and money by identifying what you might not even recognize as an issue. Find out more from Lynn Scheurell.

Energy, Lynn ScheurellHere are the top ten energy keys to having your most successful business through conscious awareness.

1. Your business grows as you get your ‘stuff’ handled; that is, your business can grow only as fast as you do.
If you haven’t invested in your own personal development, that will limit your business growth because your business will reflect your limitations.

2. Fear is a sign that you’re going beyond your comfort zone.
If you don’t experience fear at least once a week, you’re not challenging yourself nor innovating beyond where you have been – if you’re ok with that, great! But if you’re feeling stuck, it’s time to make friends with fear.

3. Your job is to stay clear on the priorities so your business can do what it needs to do.
There are a lot of details to operationally running a business, including making sure your customers are happy, so you have to constantly and consistently sort through the details and make sure you’re focused on the priorities. Ideally, you’ll get systems in place to help you do that.

4. Fail forward faster; that is, don’t get stuck in what did not work.
Instead, go out and do something different and do it as quickly as possible to minimize the loss of the thing that didn’t work. However, as I say that, make sure that you’re really managing a failure – sometimes entrepreneurs throw a marketing campaign out there but then think it’s failed after the first week when there’s been little response. You have to know when to give something time and when to call it done. Fail forward faster.

5. Your environment is the outer reflection of what’s happening in your inner world.
Make sure that your environment is clean, organized, functional and aesthetically pleasing. I am a former Feng Shui practitioner and I can tell you stories about how powerful this is… essentially, your environment can communicate with your inner world as well so by handling your external environment, your inner world can change. It’s hard to have a bad day when you’re working on your business from your private mansion on the Mediterranean coast, right?

6. You are not your business, but it is you – so it’s taking cues from your pace and tone.
If you’re having a bad day, your business will likely experience some speed bumps. If you’re in a generous and happy place, it’s likely that all kinds of great relationships and new opportunities show up in your business. Make sure you are honoring yourself first, and your business will reflect your positive energy.

7. Make decisions from a place of strength, not opinion, need for external validation, fear or scarcity.
Any of those energies will corrupt your decision and limit the possibilities in whatever decision you are making.

8. Procrastination is actually the delay of pleasure.
If you’re putting things off, look at what you’re denying yourself by focusing on the thing that you’re putting off. And really, if you want something bad enough, you don’t procrastinate – just ask anybody who has had a craving at midnight for Chunky Monkey ice cream!

9. You have got to make sure you ‘flip the switch’ in your head from being employed to being self-employed.
There is no one to motivate you when you work for yourself, and no one else can take the blame or the reward for what you do. Work the hours that feel good. Dress the way that you like. Ask for permission when appropriate, but it’s actually better to ask for forgiveness as a business owner – most of the time, when you’re aligned with positive power energy, people will say yes to any reasonable request anyway… but it takes more time to get their answer than just doing it.

10. Don’t waste time looping in situations.
Instead, do what I call ‘break state’, which is to stop the stuck or looping energy with anything – a conversation, music, taking a drive, going for a walk or a movie – and then seeing the pattern you’re in from a fresh perspective. Once you have that new view on what you’re experiencing – and remember, anything that’s happening is inviting you to grow to your next best level – so once you have the new view, choose something different from that conscious, aware perspective you now have.

Getting to CEO – Feng Shui for your Office

What does your office say about your business intent and direction? Find out how Lisa’s Janusz personal home office transformation – inspired by Feng Shui – shifted her intentions and made a regular room into a business.

Lisa Janusz, Home Office Before

My office – before

Right before I started my own business, I had Carole Hyder over. I remember telling her about my vision. As Carole started to ask me questions – leading questions – it “clicked.” As she was talking, I realized my home office did not reflect where I intended to go.

About the only thing that stayed was the desk. Other than that, there was a folding chair (sad, but true story), haphazard bookshelves and other random furniture. I knew I had to make some serious changes.

This is where Feng Shui transcends just moving furniture. Sure, I could have bought some new stuff, but that wouldn’t have gotten me where I wanted to go. I had to put more intention  around it. I had to make my vision a reality.

If you are contemplating changes in your office, here are some Feng Shui considerations:

  1. Get clear about the purpose. If it’s important – then commit to it. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a home business office or hobby room.
  2. Have it reflect your intention. That means having it look like a place you could meet clients – even if you never will. Or displaying your crafts. This isn’t the time for a multi-purpose room.
  3. Have at least one clean horizontal surface. It reflects your vision and enables you to get “clear.” I have a nice box where everything goes at the end of the day that isn’t ready to be filed. I come in to a clear desk every morning.
  4. Get a high back chair. This directly relates to getting support. A flimsy chair doesn’t have the same effect.
  5. Have a system. Clutter is a problem here, just like other areas. Be diligent about filing, tossing and releasing items that don’t fit.

My office – after

 

Shortly after Carole’s visit, I bought a nice high-back executive chair, a file cabinet, a bookshelf and a table for my printer. I also painted my office a lovely color and added some custom accessories.

Even though I didn’t expect to have clients visit me there; it was finally an appropriate place to do so. Which was good, since it did end up hosting clients after all.

Feng Shui Cubicle

Feng Shui Cubicle – Many workers spend hours and hours in office cubicles around the globe!  Bring Feng Shui to the office and see your productivity, relationships and even happiness increase! from Jillian Rothschild-Scholar.

Feng Shui CubicleFeng Shui Cubicle?  Yes.  I have worked in ‘corporate America’ for years. When I was given a tour of my new corporate office, I could not believe people could get anything accomplished in a little cube, sitting right next to someone else in such close quarters. Once a co-worker came up behind me, saw that I was intently working and shook my chair hard to scare me! I jumped a mile out of my seat and loudly and girlishly shrieked his name to scold him, causing everyone around me to stop their task and look up. He laughed – I was embarrassed.

I cannot tell you how many times this new corporate organization moved my seat to accommodate rapid growth. With each seat move, I could tell that my productivity was impacted; sometimes for the better, sometimes not. I figured out pretty quickly that I was happier near a window, in the back corner, and much preferred having a wall behind me after that scare from the co-worker. This all happened before I was exposed to Feng Shui. Over the years and with the help of Feng Shui principles, I have perfected the energy of my cube and optimized my productivity. I wish I knew then what I know now.

Here are a few simple tips that you can do to enhance your workspace:

  • Wipe your desk off regularly to clean it. Keep some ‘green cleaner’ in your desk and disinfect your phone, cube walls/cubbie door/file cabinet and chair arms.
  • Make space. Purge your desk of ‘stuff’ that you don’t touch or look at daily. Otherwise, put it away.
  • Add a little aromatherapy. Spritz the air with your favorite essential oil spray such as lemon or orange to lift your spirits and freshen the space.
  • Put up your award and accomplishments. Create a smile file with ‘thank yous’ and refer to it to raise your energy when you are feeling frustrated.
  • Add a green plant. Bamboo is great for this because it does not necessarily need sunlight and can cleanse the air.
  • Visualize your goal. Put up a picture of a vacation spot you would like to go to, your dream car or your bucket list.
  • Move it! If you work on the telephone, consider getting a wireless headset so that you can move around and keep the energy from getting stagnant.

Feng Shui works to create harmony, balance, serenity and aims to assist you in having more of what you want in your life. That can include everything from your career, your relationships, your children . There is plenty of room for more positive experiences in these all areas of our lives. Many of us already bring in lots of good Feng Shui to our homes already aiming to make it a comfortable and positive living space. You can use it at your workplace, too!

When in doubt, a professional Feng Shui practitioner can look at a situation with a fresh perspective; a new pair of eyes. Sometimes you can invite a practitioner to your office. If you know that your office will not permit visitors, take some photos of the space with you for your consultation.

Either way I suggest you experiment. Pay close attention to the results. Feng Shui can be simple and it works!  Feng Shui Cubicle?  Yes!
