Emergency Vibe Control At The Office

Protective Magic In A Workplace

Protective Magic In A Workplace

Hi Mystic, 

Just yesterday, leadership in my office forced my team to move offices- quite suddenly. I suspect it was because my original office here was really very beautiful (great view). It gave off a happy vibe because me and my office mate were pretty happy people. Anyway, I was moved to the previous leader’s office and let me tell you…. I do NOT like it. It feels so negative in here. It smells and I just don’t think that office has good vibes.

 The move as a whole has some other coworkers really upset because the shift in office space has made a real “those who have” and “those who have not” gap. At least in terms of office power, money, projects, office space. I’m convinced that the reason my previous office was happy was because of my and my office mate’s amazing vibes. 

I’d like to do some sort of cleansing, or something to rid the new office of the horrible vibe that is in it. But my office culture would be totally freaked if I brought in smudging sticks. Heck they freaked when I brought a prayer candle in, which I light when I want to bring some great ideas into my writing. Any recommendations? 

p.s. I totally know that this is power tripping because of the current starscape, and I’m willing to adapt to this new chapter. I just want to be smart about it.

The Muggles Are Power-Tripping

THIS brings up a number of vital issues.

Firstly, yes absolutely the current star-scape is evoking such fuqery.  As we are in the Transition Zone, many folk are not even AWARE – let alone comfortable with the New Norm incoming. And Uranus in Taurus has particular application to businesses, money and the world of work. So the Muggles are Power-Tripping, Qi Vamping and trying to put individuated people such as yourself back into what they delude themselves to be your place.

Vital Issue Two – Protective Magic In A Workplace is far trickier to conjure up than house witchery, for obvious reasons. As discussed before, sage and mugwort, while hugely effective can smell a lot like weed. You could technically sneak in after hours and do a sky-clad, primal drumming, massive space cleanse. But it could freak out the cleaners. Or the smoke billowing everywhere,would set off the fire alarms.  This is not the time to transmit the impression that you’re so annoyed at the office downgrade you became a pyromaniac pothead.

Metal Not Earth

So what to do?  On a practical level,  you are obviously going to give some time to considering your future with this company. As you will see from the Horoscopes, the upcoming Full Moon is square the Nodes; perfect for a superfly objective examination of directions and options.

But for the magic bit of it, you don’t need crystals. I know a lot of you LOVE your crystals and i get it. But crystals in magic are EARTH and we are moving into an Age of Earth. Uranus in Taurus and Pluto + Saturn in Capricorn emphasise the Earth element enough. You need METAL.  Consider some Tibetan bells playing on a wireless speaker in the corner, very quiet and subtle. There are thousands of such recordings on Spotify/I-Tunes and they’re proven space clearers. You could also get one of those singing bowls or anything Metal-Air-Cleansing.

And then obtain a spray container from the hardware store, fill it with pure water, Himalayan salt + some essential oil of lemon. Spray it everywhere at will. If you can move your desk, point it in your power direction. It’s not as powerful as getting the whole office fenged up but it can’t  hurt!

What does everyone else think?

Ugh, sounds awful, but sounds like Kat is onto it!

From past experience, scent is everything – shift the stink, shift the vibe! I’d hit it with everything – essential oil sprays, pomanders, scented sticks, etc.

If you could sneak an air-cleaning plant (like one from NASA’s top ten list?) in then that might help, too, esp. if put into a decorative metal planter to emphasize the metal aspect.

i had not read this post til just now. earlier this afternoon, i legit set off my home’s smoke detector with some overzealous sage burning and had a fire engine dispatched.

I’m still amazed I’ve never set mine off. A live fire or something in the oven burning will set off mine. Though the one in the kitchen is very close to the cooking area, which is part of the issue.

I’m beyond disillusioned with my new job at a junior high school (one I was totally jazzed about). Behavior is horrible with weak disciplinary policies. Pulled frequently to cover last minute absences of other teachers, forfeiting what little free time I have not to mention, losing valuable time with my special needs kiddos. Yesterday, discovered I am being underpaid by $800.00 USD every month! HR’s response: “We are so sorry you fell through the cracks during the hiring process, & the prorated pay system was not explained to you as an employee hired late in the year. The only way… Read more »

I recently found this entry in the “Employment Almanac- 2367 AD” Teaching: a vocation where well-meaning souls went above and beyond in the service of educating young people. It fell into ill-favour, in the middle of th 21st C, because parents were lacking the resoluteness to love and discipline their children / teens. They, in turn, displayed behaviours that made learning impossible. The school executive and their superintending officers kept fixing up the wrong problem. Teachers left the profession thru lack of executive support, abuses from the children, being threatened with accusations and the community not being informed as to… Read more »

All these office qi raising tips sound most useful- I currently have an office pest who bruises my apple, an afternoon snack I leave next to my computer on my desk so It’s handy when my blood sugar drops. After she’s in my office talking to her friend I always notice when later my apple is in bad shape. It’s taken many months to realise what’s happening. But now I do I can only think that’s some salt and essential oil attention to my work space may offer some protection.

There’s a meditation I like (I think it’s fairly popular actually) wherein you visualize your aura bubble, let the ether drain from it (visualize it similar to the water draining from a bathtub) and then refill it with fresh energy (visualize golden light from the sun pouring in through the top). You can do this for a space as well simply by visualizing the bubble expanded to contain the entire room.

I have a smudge spray that I use, that basically has sage essential oil in it and I also have another spray with other oils (one with lavender, one with lemon and one also with mint) and I use in my office and also smudge between clients, as it can get pretty intense energetically.
The sprays are quite subtle so most muggles don’t notice.

I totally agree bring metal in and also consider your work options given the current astro vibe

similar situation here. Self-publishing my 2nd book on Amazon Kindle and amongst the many other classic “whatever can go wrong, will go wrong” shizz the building has been sold and my new landlord wants me out by early July.

One of my fail safe mantras:”if it isn’t easy, it isn’t right.” I have a book m.s. that has been on the back burner for a year and a half, having been derailed by health issues and recovery…and getting back to full strength…which has showed me that neither the material or I were “ripe”. Now looking at it after the changes and transformation within my being, it has become clear that it needs heavy editing as well as new material written post illness. So I would suggest that while your will power is on the go with this, that higher… Read more »

All fabulous comments. When I worked in a super toxic office with a few Qi vamps, I would do the line of salt RIGHT across my door. NOTE: It blended with the office carpets, so it wasn’t obvious, but it was there. Aromatherapy sprays too – lavender, lemon, eucalyptus. Also, diffused lighting might help, like paper lamps (if allowed).

If you cant sage the room without smoke alarms going off, what about some aromatherapy oils in a defuser using some sage and orange oil with maybe a bit of lavender to calm the transition ? I also saw another oil called “outdoors” you could possibly use later when you get the lingering essence of the past occupants out of the room! Also grab a beautiful fig to change the air, yellow flowers, maybe everyone could bring something small from home to inspire themselves and in turn everyone beyond work no dire pictures or posters .

Would this kind of clearing help if done in the home, but for a personal situation? Just before mercury turned direct, there was another flare up with my in laws- the usual nasty texts demanding my partner do as they say (like he had when he was a teenager), personal attacks on me for not being the ‘ideal’ person for him, that they’ll be proven right etc. etc. Their crazy texts and rejecting behaviour has been escalating since a year and a half ago when they finally admitted that they didn’t approve of me.

when in doubt, do nothing. Any reaction to their negativity towards you feeds the fire. They have their own major issues that they are projecting on to you. Rise above by not sinking to their level. Silence is golden. And what of your partner. How is he coping? His parents are pressuring him to choose between you and the family. My feeling is that this is either going to drive a wedge between you and him or between him and his family. He will have to chosse…Doesn’t he see by not respecting his choice of partner that his parents are… Read more »

Thanks Virgo Rising. So true re the silence- I mean, how are you supposed to reason with someone so unreasonable? And yet… they just make my blood boil!! So I can’t help but wonder whether I’m letting myself down by not confronting them about their horrible behaviour and comments so they know I’m no pushover? My partner isn’t coping very well. He’s always sought their love and approval by doing everything they wanted. This is the first time he’s not caving, and hence, seemingly rebelling without even intending to. So he’s kinda stuck still chasing their validation, despite the fact… Read more »

I cannot BELIEVE this; I was JUST thinking of emailing Mystic to ask “Should we be on the lookout for workplace backstabbing this week?” Dramalama-ding-dong! I got a co-worker who is saying she is going to go undercover and meet with the insufferable Mansplaning Lady to find out why this woman thinks me and my boss screwed up a project in order to determine whether this lady sabotaged us…but all this is going to do is cause trouble.

When you say backstabbing, i think you might have been naturally venting about bits and pieces, and could be worried that Ms Dramalama-ding-dong (whose name i adore) could try to implicate your and others’ neg backup where it does not need to be. Let’s ignore my usual Sag stuff, which is transparent and impulsive and bound to the higher ground in moral dealings with general humans, and would totally say give your boss heads-up. That shit never works. How about we say, keep your higher moral ground safe and where it should reasonably be in a reasonable scenario. That is,… Read more »

My culture where I work is so toxic anyways that this whole thing is almost funny. US is my friend–like, stayed with me while she was travelling, etc. But she is younger and has galloping “I’m Smarter Than Everyone Else” syndrome–which is endemic where I work. My boss already knows they’ve tried to blame us so trying to find out whether they sabotaged us is a pointless crusade.… Read more »

Perfect timing on the article. Anybody have any suggestions on how to deal with co-workers that do not respect your boundaries and take your personal things(by this, I mean personal belongings, not office items) from your desk without permission? The saddest part about this is that the coworker that is Wiccan(not the dark kind) was the one that got caught using my things, which I just do not understand… thought of all the people in the office she would be the least likely culprit.

HR/Management is of no help, and might actually be exacerbating the issue negatively.

SheRat

This might sound stupid but have you conftronted her directly?

Starbaies

Yes I have, but that was only months after I found out. I am not at my desk FT so I only caught on way too late.

However I dont feel that her behavior should be excused simply because I didnt get a chance to confront her about it… It shouldnt be ok in the first place and she should know better – hello!

Im still not 100% that my message went through clearly, or will be respected. So hence my asking here.

SheRat
SheRat

Absolutely NOT implying that she gets a pass ’cause you didn’t say anything. I was asking ’cause that would seem to be the first step in rectifying the issue.

I’m SO CONFUSED about WHY someone would use your schizz after you told ’em not to. Like, what did she say when you were like “WTF?”

And just so we can help more, like what is she using? Your cell phone? Your hand cream? Eating your chocolate stash?

Starbaies

I am on the same boat as you. I simply dont understand WHY they would do this when common sense would say otherwise. Absolutely, confronting her is the first step but I wasnt able to do so until months after the fact when I caught her in the act.

Which I know for a fact was a lie… it was happening for awhile, I could tell. I dont even hang out with… Read more »

Don’t think I’ve ever had anyone complain of a light scent of mint. Even wiped down my desks with some diluted peppermint oil spray.

I save the palo-santo for weekends, if I feel it is 100% necessary. Works similar to sage, but does not smell like ‘weed’ to the muggles. No fires in the office. I’m sure those sprinklers are not as permissive as the smoke alarms in my home.

I’m surprised no one has mentioned sage essential oil which can be used in a DIY spray. When combined with citrus oil the smell becomes unobtrusive and very pleasant. I think I used sage, lime, and rosemary (thought to be protective). You can go heavy on the citrus to cover up the more herbal ones. The internet abounds with recipes and information on the properties of essential oils if you’re new to their use. Just make sure you get the artemisia one and not oil of cooking sage.

If i only had one thing to choose from to clear a space of bad juju for quick results i would use Black Obsidian. Obsidian is not a crystal or mineral – it is a volcanic glass that cuts through and expels negativity really quickly. It is born out of extremely quickly cooled volcanic lava, so it has the most potent energy of the interaction of three powerful elements—fire, earth, and water. It not only offers protection and and expels negative energy, but in Feng shui it is used as the Water element/quality for the North bagua – the area… Read more »

Salt at thresholds! We were having a dreadful time at work and one Saturday I came into the department and laid salt at three thresholds.

If you know what day the cleaners come in to vacuum, bring in some salt sachets and sprinkle it around the floor and doorway (threshold) of the space before you leave in the evening.

Some of us are allergic to lavender, it will clog us up something fierce. If I choose to use it in a diffuser, I use 1 drop where I would use 5. Scents also hold memories.

I have a big Himalayan singing bowl in my office! I play it every morning as soon as I step into my office to calm down my frazzled nerves from commuting (and whenever I need it, throughout the day). I also have an aroma diffuser to bring in nice calming scents (the essential oil blends from Muji are quite good); and two cheap cheerful lamps that I use in place of fluorescent lighting. Everyone who steps in the space – my boss, my colleagues, my students – always wants to linger.

Chimes might be a good alternative to singing bowls.

Agree with metal accents, singing bowls and diffuser. Water fountain is great (unless it makes you want to pee all the time). I also second the peace lilly or another high-vibing plant. Mother-in-law tongues are great for scrubbing the air and need low light.
For you, a salt bath. Soak all the bad juju out & let it go down the drain.

I’d also agree with the idea of the vapouriser/diffuser. So good for an office desk situation and you can always get away with Lemon and Peppermint in the workplace as they cleanse and keep you alert, improve happy vibes, and generally help to keep you healthy from airborne viruses and bacteria too. *two thumbs up* As for the ‘ugh’ feelilng I also agree with using Metal. ‘The Sound of Metal’ in feng shui is a powerful energy lifter.

Ugh. The smell thing is massive – I don’t know how permissive the office is (sounds stuffy, both literally and metaphorically) but one of those little diffusers with some kind of citrus oil (or whatever’s nice) might help too.

They sell tiny ones that are unobtrusive and all they do is send out that little puff of steam. And if anyone asks it’s for dry air/allergies/whatever.

I I was going to suggest the spray bottle with essential oil, for me I’d consider peppermint or palo santo. Maybe a few others.

You don’t often hear of complaints about a little bit of a mint smell.

Also, essential oil reed diffusers should be investigated.

I almost smudged my company’s office one time. Still considering it.

Also, the right office plant in a good position. I’ve kept a ‘Lucky Bamboo’ in my office for years. Hard to kill other than by fluoride exposure.

I notice how varied people’s responses to scent are, so I avoid anything that puts it permanently there.

Don’t think I’ve ever had anyone complain of a light scent of mint. Even wiped down my desks with some diluted peppermint oil spray.

I save the palo-santo for weekends, if I feel it is 100% necessary. Works similar to sage, but does not smell like ‘weed’ to the muggles. No fires in the office. I’m sure those sprinklers are not as permissive as the smoke alarms in my home.

re: the mint smell – I’d be like, “Oh that was gum I had earlier, sorry.” 😉
