Working in an office as a witch is an interesting experience. I’m an empath which means I can be highly affected by other’s emotions, and an office is a mixing pot of energies. I realized early on I needed to set up a perimeter around myself to act as a barrier. Using sigils written on sticky notes I lined my desk with them and noticed an immediate difference. This got me thinking about other forms of magick that could be easily and subtly performed in an office setting.
I’m not going in depth with this subject because there are already so many resources, and explaining it here would take up the entire post.
Basically, sigils are symbols programmed with intent that can be written pretty much anywhere. Around my desk I have several different sigils on color coded sticky notes. The one I have the most of is meant to shield me from other’s emotions. My positivity sigil also appears more than once. These help me create a positive work space where I’m protected.
You can get these babies in any shape, size, and color. While clearing out some junk from previous employees who used my desk, I came across a gold mine of sticky notes. The ones I use most are shaped like a star for balance and harmony, but I also frequently use ones that are a pretty blue color to help promote communication.
Depending on your situation you can really have some fun with these. Working on a project that requires creativity? Use orange ones. Need to earn a promotion? Try green to represent money.
Decorating Your Desk
- By far my preferred way to decorate any space. I always choose the crystals based on what I want to accomplish at my job or what kind of space I want to cultivate. Up until recently I had citrine, selenite, and amethyst sitting on the base of my computer monitor, but they need a good cleanse and charging.
- Most people won’t bother asking about them because they are pretty normal decor. If someone does just say they look cool and that’s why you have them.
- Mini Altars
- While I don’t do this, it can be a good way to keep your path in the front of your mind. I believe that altars are microcosms of your life so whatever you want to manifest should be put on it, and all others should be kept off. Coworkers often sit at my desk and fiddle with things and I don’t trust them not to mess anything up so I just don’t keep one.
- Potted plants
- All witches know the benefits of having plants around. Keeping one or two at your desk helps boost mental health in general, and can have a calming effect. I have two spider plants that I named Bonnie and Clyde.
I mentioned this idea in my Positivity Peanut Butter and Honey Sandwiches because it is something that is a part of my daily activities. Enchanting lunches in the morning (or whenever you make them) allows you to get an extra boost of magick in the middle of your day without doing anything or drawing attention to yourself.
I do this for my significant other and he always tells me how much better my lunches taste. I also slip in little love notes meant to make him feel loved and have a positive day.
