Shui Fish Tank in Office
a feng shui audit for a medium-size office recently.
The moment I stepped into the office, the first
thing that caught my attention was a big arowana
fish tank and beside the tank, there was also another
water feature fountain. Proceeded to take feng shui
measurement of the office, I asked the business
owner Mr Tan if the fish tank and water fountain
have been there for a long time. He replied they
were there since day 1 when they shifted in a year
business hasn't been smooth typically the cash flow?"
I questioned Mr Tan.
chatted and Mr Tan shared that he has always been
interested in feng shui and read up a lot from books
and internet and he set up this office according
to the feng shui theories he studied. "Surely the
feng shui set up in my office shouldn't be way too
off?" he joked. But he was unsure how come business
has turned so bad.
Knowing Mr Tan has some feng shui knowledge, I shared
and asked if he was aware that the location where
he set the fish tank and water fountain is the wealth
corner of his office. Undoubtedly, the reply was
yes and that was why he had the fish tank and fountain
there to generate wealth (Water = Wealth, he acclaimed).
explained to him that water does not always represent
wealth and in fact, wrong placement of water features
could trigger reverse effect (i.e. loss of wealth).
"Yes, you are correct that the wealth corner is
there and there is a wealth star there. The more
you shouldn't place any water features there, Mr
Tan. For the case of your office, water is not appropriate
in this location. The energy of water in actual
would weaken the energy of your wealth corner or
to put it in layman, drown away your wealth!" He
was shocked on hearing this.
fish tank and water feature fountain were quickly
relocated to other suitable positions in the office
(at much effort if you can imagine the size of the
arowana tank). In replacement at the wealth corner,
I advised Mr Tan to place a big potted indoor ZZ
days after rearranging the office setup, Mr Tan
closed an important business deal that he has been
anxiously waiting for. Business gradually pick up
(continued): Slow Business Flow
After relocating the fish tank and water feature
fountain, Mr Tan's business improved and picked
up. However, things soon quiet down and turned stagnant,
the staffs appear listless and lethargic. Mr Tan
requested my help to make another visit and have
a check again at the office. On entering the office,
this time I notice a green sofa bed at the corner.
"The sofa bed wasn't there previously right?" I
asked Mr Tan. He replied that there has been increase
in business orders hence having constant overtime
work (that stretches over midnight), so he put up
the sofa bed there for the convenience for himself
and his staff.
I advised Mr Tan to remove the sofa bed and install
a pink color table lamp there and switch it on whenever
they are in office.
Business went back on track with encouraging business
In the practice of feng shui, certain mistakes are
intolerable. The use of special water formations
is one of them. The application of water placement
in feng shui may seem easy on theory but in actual
application may not exactly be that straightforward.
Wrong placement of water features could result in
undesirable harms and misfortunes e.g. divorce,
financial loss, poor health etc. Unless you are
absolutely sure, you wouldn't risk going wrong.
In our everyday life, it is inevitable that our
living and working space get cluttered with items
and objects along time. Essentially, they would
not cause any life threatening harms but at cases
(typically at the significant sectors), inappropriate
placement of items could trigger undesirable influence
that affect your health and your financial being
etc. It would be good to be cautious on these sectors.
