Question- I have often heard about the “Commanding Position” in Fengshui, What is this commanding position and how it can be applied in practical life? Also if none of the criteria about this position can be followed, then what to do?
Answer- First let us understand what the commanding position is. As the word suggests the commanding position is the one which makes you feel in control of the place or situation, where things happen according to your desire and command. Fengshui prescribes various criteria for deciding the commanding position at your place of work.
1. The office desk should be placed diagonally from the door in the farthest corner. If you cannot put your desk diagonal from the door, at least have as much space as possible in front of your desk.
2. You should have a good view of the door from your desk. If this is not possible occupy a place which gives you a good view of the person approaching you.
3. You should have a good, solid support at the back. Avoid any window or a glass wall at the back. If you have to use a window or a glass wall as your back support, keep a chair with a high back or a chair which is impressive. However, be careful that the chair should not so big and daunting that you get drowned in it.
4. Your desk should not be in line with the door. This can be remedied by keeping a screen between the door and the desk or by keeping some plants in between to block the shar chi coming from the door.
Although these rules are so simple, that they can easily applied in even a small area, yet if these cannot be followed, find a position which makes you feel in charge of the space as well as the activity going on around you. Let your intuition guide you.
And as always the premises should be absolutely clutter free. The office racks or books should be well organized and kept neat.
