Let Go of Time


This was a section of an office I came across during a business Feng Shui consultation in New Jersey. Having a clock in your office offers a practical function, yet when you have 4 in a row behind you, that becomes another matter.

In the practice of Feng Shui (also known as Environmental Psychology) we encourage one clock, or a clock that is not directly present to you all the time, to no clocks (more so at home), if possible. The reason is from a Feng Shui perspective, if you have so many clocks bundled in one section, one a clock in every room in your home, it's as if you are creating unnecessary pressure. A clocks job is to "tick away time." 

The sub conscious thought could then become, get this done, be in a hurry, etc. You will literally hear the ticking of each clock and that is what was happening in this office. It became a distraction vs a help. Not only that, the visual presentation of the clocks were relating to an unstable feeling and lack of clarity and focus. 

This client is in process and I will do a follow up to see what ideas they have come to test out since last we connected. They plan to still have a clock, but it will be more subtle in presentation and allow stronger supportive imagery vs the clocks.

So true Laura, to let go of time will really help your soul and create more positive energy. You will not be tied to a clock.

I wish I could hide the clock on the elliptical at the gym!  :)

Laura - I do not like clocks for that very reason. I do not want to be reminded what time it is, or how little time I have left before I need to finish something. I don't even wear a watch anymore. I rely strictly on my smart phone... surprise, surprise.

Good evening Laura. I do not have any clocks in the office. I do use the timer on my phone to set time deadlines.

I agree with the comments above.  Your picture alone makes me a bit uptight.  Can only imagine what it would be like sitting there.  Mark

Laura Cerrano That's a lot of clocks in one place!  It would make me nervous having those behind me.

Thanks Laura, I had not thought about the pressure of too many clocks, though one easy to see clock does give me a calmness knowing that I am on schedule.
