Shaloo Walia is an astrologer and tarot reader. She is an Art of Living teacher and also an ardent Krishna devotee and a follower of ISKCON.

We spend almost 8-9 hours every day at our office. They are almost like our second home. Unfortunately, long work hours, work stress and sedentary lifestyle leave us little time for ourselves. If this continues for a period of time then it may lead to anxiety and depression. However, Feng Shui gives us a simple solution to attract positive vibrations and curb work stress.

According to Feng Shui, some plants are helpful in creating a harmonious environment and brightening up the living spaces. We need plants that help in purifying the surroundings and making it more lively. Feng Shui encourages having a full and blossoming plant to attract good luck.

Here are ten plants which will help in enlivening the work space and adding positive vibes to it:

1. Cactus

Cactus absorbs negativity and helps in fighting anxiety. They also absorb the electromagnetic negative energies emitted by the electronic devices. Besides, they are easy to maintain and don't need much tending.

2. Spearmint

Its remedial powers help in keeping you calm. Its fragrance is awesome. It also attracts wealth.

When a storm comes, bamboo bends. It doesn't break.

3. Bamboo

Bamboo is considered the best option for incorporating Feng Shui in the office space. Bamboo is considered a symbol of purity and invites positive vibrations in the work place. It brings a peaceful and positive aura to the workstation and also teaches the ultimate wisdom. It is said to bring serenity and happiness by keeping jealousy at bay. The bamboo plant brings good luck, health, and prosperity. It can also be used as a decorative item that can be placed on the coffee table or work desk. According to Feng Shui,the number of bamboo stalks has different meanings. It is said that three stalks represent happiness, wealth and long life. Five-six stalks signify wealth and good luck. Seven stalks symbolize good health.

4. Jasmine

This beautiful and fragrant flower helps in restoring confidence and the flow of positive energy. It is also said to enhance romance and helps in nourishing relationships. Its pleasant aroma soothes a troubled mind and brings calming effect. Jasmine will bring all sorts of positive aura if it is placed indoors near a south facing window.


5. Rosemary

Rosemary purifies air and keeps it free from harmful toxins, thus promoting physical and mental health. This popular herb encourages the feelings of love and loyalty. Its fragrance helps in fighting anxiety and bringing inner peace. It must kept at a place that has bright colours and cool temperature.

6. Snake plant

Snake plant is also known as mother-in-law plant. It is a type of succulent with long sword-shaped leaves that is considered to bring good luck .It is believed to be a health promoting plant because of its ability to absorb poisonous gases from the air and removing toxins such as formaldehyde and benzene. It keeps negative vibes at bay and increase the flow of positive vibrations by strengthening familial bonds.


7. Thyme

This popular herb strengthens confidence & self worth. It also helps in cleansing negative vibrations.

Jade is one of the most sought-after Feng Shui plants because it promotes prosperity and welfare. It helps in dealing with hateful and negative people. Jade is a traditional gift which is given to new business owners or placed in offices to invite success and wealth. When placed near the entrance, it is believed to bring prosperity and success.

Every year, in November, at the season that follows the hour of the dead, the crowning and majestic hours of autumn, I go to visit the chrysanthemums ... They are indeed, the most universal, the most diverse of flowers.

— Maurice Maeterlinck

8. Chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemums get bright yellow flowers and the colour yellow is a symbol of happiness and positivity in Feng Shui . Chrysanthemum is believed to attract positive & happy energy. Feng Shui considers this plant as a link between the spiritual and the mortal realm. This beautiful flower infuses positivity in the workplace and keeps everyone in an upbeat mood.

      @Eric Is it? I am not aware of Vietnamese traditions, so can't say. But Feng shui and Vastu have many similar concepts.

      I’ll definitely go for the cactus. I have a room we use for yoga/meditating. It could use some green.
