Creative Process: Work Studio Feng Shui

Lolita’s studio needs inspiration

Lolita is fortunate to have a wise, Chinese girlfriend at her day job. Ms. Chen came over to Lol’s section in the past year or so, and has pretty much settled in. Just yesterday Lol was struck by the particularly delicate, but highly functional arrangement of Ms. Chen’s cubicle. It was not just that everything was in it’s place. There was something more, some tangible energy was felt, something inexplicable making that cubicle conducive to productive work in a happy way.

Lol’s girlfriend explained that the work set-up was influenced by an ancient Chinese principle known as feng shui. Feng Shui is based on the concept that everything in your environment has a life force or energy called “chi.”

Just as chi flows through your body, chi also flows through your living environment. When the energy flow is stagnant (think clutter and overflowing closets), moves too quickly (think long dark hallways, stairs, and straight shots through the home), or is obstructed (think walls, trees, or even cars in the wrong place), the unbalanced chi may lead to ill health, domestic strife, or financial concerns.

Feng Shui adjustments can help you make sure that the chi energy flow is just right so that everything in your environment supports your wish for good luck, good health, harmonious relationships, and prosperity.

With this wisdom in mind, our gentle and creative vampiress took some time out to order garden and home workstation. She offered some pics for us to enjoy here!

coffee should be close by, of course, but not too close to the keyboard!

    The way your last few posts seem to build on each other takes me to so many places. Personal growth, acceptance of both our strengths and weaknesses, and music as a source for expanding our understanding of the self in terms of our sexuality – it coalesces beautifully in “Feng Shui.” Love your work!
