Arrange Your Books
Your personal office is the ideal location for your library. Keep all your educational books, literature, self-help and philosophy books as well as encyclopedias enclosed in a bookcase. Place your books in an accessible manner at the front of the shelves.
Boost The Earth Element
Decorate your desk with ceramic vases, terracotta pots, porcelain figurines, a globe, and earthly tiles. Rectangular or square shaped accessories will also support the Earth element. Make sure you include images, paintings or pictures of mountains and heavy objects such as rocks and stones.
Adorn It with Crystals
Crystals are the ultimate representation of the Earth element. Place or hang them in a way that would allow them to reflect the light from their edges.
Diplomas, Awards, Trophies
Display your diplomas, awards, trophies and educational/work achievements in the northeast corner of your space. Also keep pencils, pens, writing material and tablets, Ipad, laptop and software programs that are relevant to your studies in this area.
