Desk Past Segment

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP @ Inside Awareness, Living in Natures Love Blog & Renee Lindstrom Live

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This area represents honoring the ancestors.  For me in the office this area  reflects the ground or foundation of a persons individual work or of the business itself.  It would be the best area to set aside completed work and/or projects.

Three tips for the Past Area:

  1. Declutter this area.
  2. Add green spectrum of living nature.
  3. Add living plant or flowers with roots.

Desk Fame Segment

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP @ Inside Awareness, Living in Natures Love Blog & Renee Lindstrom Live

The fame area of the Bagua reflects ones essence or character, and recognition in the community.  This could be reflected by what one could hope would be on their memorial announcement.  This may include loving partner and parent who will be missed, contributing member to the community with a list of events or achievements left behind.  Unlike career where the focus is on your skill.  

3 tips for desk fame area

  1. De-clutter and open space up.
  2. Add red range of colours.
  3. Add light  to this area (candle).

Desk Wealth Corner

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP @ Inside Awareness, Living in Natures Love Blog & Renee Lindstrom Live

This desk corner is about abundance. Abundance in finances, investments and resources.  For me it also represents abundance in the quality of experiencing life and relationships that includes the cycle of giving and receiving.  An example is the balance of giving and taking.    If wealth is from natural resources the question is in the equal contribution back to restore and maintain the quality of the nature and the environment.  In other words is one just taking and not  giving back?

3 Wealth Corner Tips:

  1. Declutter and open up space in this corner
  2. Add blue, purple and red colours
  3. Add objects reflecting moving water such as fish (3), picture,  or fountain

Desk Health Segment

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP @ Inside Awareness, Living in Natures Love Blog & Renee Lindstrom Live

The work health area represents the center point of health in the environment, self and relationships and is in the center of the bagua.  It has two considerations. One is for personal health and the other is  health of the business.  If the person is not well, happy and content, the business is not going to show success.  If the business plan and working  process is not healthy, the people in it will not show behaviour that leads to success.   The business plan is the skeleton of the operation, the operation process are the joints and the people are the movement.  Is the movement flexible and spontaneous or is it tight, constrained and full of effort and pain?

3 tips for the health area

  1. Declutter this area and keep space open for ease of movement.  (in high-tech firm designs they are incorporating areas for their employees to rejuvenate through exercise, good food and naps.  The center is a great place to place these areas)
  2. Add colours for this area are the earth element yellows
  3. Add picture, Affirmation, or words that represent intention or essence of goals.

2019 #Desktop Rituals support Office Goals

by Renee Lindstrom, GCFP @ Inside Awareness, Living in Natures Love Blog & Renee Lindstrom Live

Recently in a coaching session we discussed having a reminder for waking up to our goals throughout the day as support for achieving  our intentions. In this conversation the emphasis was on visual stimulus, however it could be sound, smell, touch or taste.

Our focus was  the office and afterwards I was inspired to create some desktop tips that can be used as physical reminders using an object, picture, colour or shape.  The intention of these placements is to connect and focus ones attention for more clarity.  Attention goes where one is focused.

Whether in fortune, fame, relationships, creativity, health, community or career these tips are for those who want to improve their office setting and experience.  Read the links below for ways to improve office life through personal connection to the environment which is your landscape where your experience begins.

I recommend to take time with each area of ones desk independently to consider what influence would best suit that area. Change one area at a time leaving some time in-between to notice differences.

The following is for those wanting to connect to creating a sacred connection to this pattern of change.   When you have cleared the clutter and holding a special object, say a personal blessing or prayer just before placement. For me, I use a Heart Sutra Mantra and recite it 9 times. It goes like this – Om Gate, Gate, Paragate, Parasamgate, Bodhi Svaha. It means, gone, gone, gone beyond……

Interpretation of this mantra and action is that it is a statement of intention and request followed by letting it go without any attachment. The placement announces the intention is set as it is placed. It becomes a visual reminder of what you are longing for.

Communication retraining the brain

In Cultivating Awareness foundational for experiential learning one will read about the similarities and differences between Renee’s educational programs and a Mindfulness Mediation Practice.

The focus of this article is on cultivating awareness to retrain the brain and balance used of left and right sides of the brain that Renee encourages her students to learn in the process of becoming self-directed and connected to what and how they are speaking.

The importance of a particular practice of identifying types of  thoughts became relevant when a student came back to class and shared their life changing self-awareness experience.  They discovered that they compare themselves and others while making critical moral judgments based upon their filter of jealousy. By slowing down to observe these patterns, this recognition can shift and transform their experience. The types of thoughts we address are in the following illustration.

In this diagram a maze is in the area of the fore-brain that depicts the essence of figuring it out and hitting walls until one finds their way forward. This can be complex and draining process.

In the following diagram a larger spiral leading directly into the center point is shown in the fore-brain area that demonstrates the ease in which cultivated awareness through communication can mirror.  This cultivation is not unlike the growing ability to focus ones attention as they would in a sitting mediation.  It is a different focus, pattern and foundation that one would practice that would include more of ones whole functional ability than the limiting thought process shown in the above diagram.
