How can you sit in comfort and concentrate with something hanging on top of your head. Definitely it is bad for your and I don't think there is any cures except removing it. Try to talk to your superior on the possibility of placing it on to any wall or side of door which is visible to everyone.
I just moved to a new role within the company, but the issue is my new office where I am now sitting, there is one of those "Exit" signs hanging from the ceiling directly above my head.
I can't really change offices, and they can't really move the Exit sign. What can I do to "cure" this situation?
Since the “exit” cannot be removed and you are not comfortable, then you simply have to move.
It is a bad FengShui to have an “exit” sign on top of you.
Old folks say that anyone remain in such a situation will be removed horizontally, I don’t know what does it means actually.
There is nothing magically bad about an exit sign.
But if it is directly above your head, then it may act like sitting under a beam. Can you move a bit one way or the other so it is not exactly above you?
The bigger problem that I see is that it concerns you. Much of feng shui has to do with our relationship with the environment. Something that makes us uncomfortable will have an effect.
So the solution?
When we cannot change our circumstances, we must look to change our attitude about them.
What is a more positive way for you to imagine this sign?
Don't despair. The situation may not be nearly as bad as you think.
Having an exit sign hanging above your head is like sitting with an exposed beam above you, you can tie a pair of bamboo flute with a red thread on both end of the exit sign to counter the poison arrow produced by the said exit sign.
Jose, I chuckled at your suggestion not because it's silly. I'm well aware of those cures for poison arrows and exposed beams. But I chuckled because it would be funny for my colleagues to see me standing on my desk in the high rise office building wondering why I'm trying to reach for an exit sign that is far too high and only accessible with a ladder. I live in Canada, so Feng Shui is not as prevalent with a lot of Westerners.
In any case, I did ask the building facilities manager, and since the sign is attached to those removeable ceiling tiles, they checked to see if the electrical wiring was long enough that they can swap the tile with an adjacent one.
Fortunately, the wiring was long enough, and they were able to switch it with the next one. Although they could only switch with the immediate next one and it only shifted about a foot and a half, and it's still above my office and directly above one side of my desk, It is at least not directly above my head and misses my shoulder by a bit.
So at least no part of me is sitting below the sign, so I won't have that exposed beam effect. Now, I'll just order a couple of Feng Shui items to put on my desk, and I'm set.
