The image of a green field also produces this effect.
Order: an essential Feng Shui
We will never leave messy papers or folders in front of us, as they will block our way and we will not be able to move forward. Chaos should not take over our table when it comes to feng shui at work: if our papers are stacked, we will put them on the sides; never move on. If we intend to hang our titles on the walls, we will do it on the left. If possible, avoid placing tables near fax machines or photocopiers.

Turtles are animals that attract and retain good luck. The color red is a note with very positive effects in the offices, while the lucky cat, white with black and gold spots, located at the entrance of the office, will attract successful business. An oriental belief recommends us to move 27 objects that have remained immobile during the last year.
