We’ve all heard to old saying that “it’s who you know, not what you know.” Now, part of that is true. You do need sufficient knowledge and have certain capabilities, but you also need good contacts or a network of people who can make the right introductions. Today more than ever, the job market and our modern life means that we need the right people to come along at the right time who can help us.
In feng shui that’s the helpful people corner.
When you activate the northwest corner of your home, office, or desk you stimulate your mentor luck as well as blessings, networking contacts, and the potential for international business and travel luck. What’s not to love about this corner?
When you activate this corner, you’ll be helping yourself get ahead in life, so don’t leave it empty even if it’s not your personal best feng shui direction. Why? Because we all need blessings and helpful people in our lives no matter what our personal feng shui it is! Use plenty of shiny metal in this corner to activate this important corner. And, hey if you’re looking for a new man, activating this corner could just help him find you! For more ideas, read the tips below.
Open doors with helpful people luck.
The helpful people corner is the northwest and it represents big metal. That makes it the perfect place to add a large filing cabinet, a pretty piece of artwork made of metal, anything shiny and metallic, and anything that moves. Have a grandfather clock? Place this beauty here with its bells and gongs to stimulate the northwest corner beautifully.
Moving metal creates opportunities.
One of the ways we earn new opportunities is when our efforts come to the attention of those in a position of power. These people can help open doors, bring notice to our work and help us leap frog ahead. Stimulate the northwest corner with anything that moves like a pendulum clock, a fan or even a television. The idea is to keep this area active to help you rise to the attention of those who can help you.
Add earth images for heavenly help.
You might want an angel investor or benefactor, but using earth images will help bring one to you. Add pictures of mountains, earth, or even planets in outer space – it all helps to solidify your heavenly help and blessings from others.
Brighten your prospects with light.
Whether you want to travel, gain a powerful mentor or create blessings and attention from those who can promote you, light is one of the best activators for the northwest corner. Add a floor lamp, a tall plant with twinkle lights, or any kind of lighting here – just no flames or candles. Light will help bring you the right kind of attention and just the right person when you need them.
Stimulate international luck.
Whether you want to travel or do business internationally, a strong northwest corner is one of the best ways to get your bags packing. To activate, add earth elements here such as smooth crystal balls, geodes or a pretty vase to solidify relationships. The luck of the earth stimulates the big metal of this corner to bring you opportunities abroad.
Images of people help bring you helpful people and blessings.
We see our world through our eyes, and that makes images to important for stimulating what we desire. Images of famous, important or powerful people, such as business leaders, deities or religious leaders are all excellent choices to be displayed here. Add in images or messages of thanks and gratitude to manifest helpful people and more blessings to come to you. If travel is what you desire, add travel posters or images of exotic destinations to help stamp your passport.
