Bedroom Feng Shui All you need to know.

“Find out how your bedroom Feng Shui is affecting your sleep, and get the best tips in this short post.”

Did you know you could actually “design” your bedroom in a way that helps you sleep better? Just think of it, one third of your life is spent in the bedroom, which is why creating a Feng Shui bedroom is so worthwhile! Whether you believe it or not, making a few small changes in your bedroom can dramatically improve your health, relationships, wealth – and yes, definitely help you to fall asleep easier and stay asleep through the night.
1. The ideal placement for your bed is diagonally across from the door.
This placement gives you privacy and allows you to see anyone entering your bedroom.
You can see who’s entering the room and have time to react, which helps to sustain a feeling of control over your space and environment.

It helps your survival instincts to be able to relax.

2. Do not sleep with your feet facing towards a door, this is known as the “coffin position”and speaks for itself.

3. Your bed should be accessible from both sides, so if one side is against the wall, it’s time to move it. This helps to keep the positive energy flow around the bed.

4. Keep the wardrobe, areas under bed and behind the door free of clutter – cluttered spaces make a cluttered mind.
According to Feng Shui, clutter leads to stress and chaos, it can block the flow of Chi, disturb sleep, and generally prevent things in your life from moving forward.
If our bedroom is cluttered with a mess of objects, our mind will be too.

5. Choose the bed with empty space underneath. But never use the space under your bed for storage, to allow the energy to freely circulate around and under your bed, to refresh and nourish your energy while you sleep.

6. Try to avoid sleeping with a beam, ceiling fan, chandelier or shelves over your head.

Do not hang above your head heavy or sharp edged items, they will create oppressive, heavy energy which will, sooner or later lead to illness or relationship troubles.

If you cannot move the bed, you can hang a crystal faceted sphere, but the best solution is to buy or create a canopy over your existing bed.

Choose some strong fabric for your canopy. A soft, transparent fabric will not block the negative energy.
7. The head of the bed should be against a wall, but not under a window, since Chi energy enters and leaves a room through the windows.

If your bed is in this pathway, the Chi energy will flow over you as you sleep, causing a restless sleep.
If you can’t avoid it, make sure you have heavy, blackout curtains to block some of the energy that disturbs your sleep.

8. Do not keep anything negative in the bedroom at all!

If you have old papers, paintings, photos or any gift that has been given to you by someone who has negative feelings for you, or that you associate with a negative time in your life throw them out or store it far away from your bedroom.

 

 

9. Headboards, especially solid ones, are considered good Feng Shui because they provide additional strength and support behind your head.

 

10. An open Metal headboards, with open bars, are definitely the worst choice for your bed.

Not only the space between the bars leaking all the energy, this specific design resembles prison or a cage and can make you feel as though you’re trapped.

11. Soften your bedroom environment by adding more natural decor, like plants, lamps, sculptures and other smooth edges.

Oval and circle shapes are better than furniture and accessories with sharp corners or edges.

Look around your room at the furniture and check for items that have sharp edges.
When you’re lying in bed, none of those sharp angles should point at you. Sharp angles, in Feng Shui, are believed to be like “poison arrows,” that will direct negative energy towards you. You can remedy this by suspending a crystal faceted sphere between the poison arrow and the bed, which will scatter the energy flow.

12. Do not sleep in such a way where a mirror reflects any part of your body or in such a way that you can see yourself in the mirror when you wake up.
In addition to bouncing too much energy around the room, reflective surfaces are believed to magnify problems and worries, and some Feng Shui masters even say that mirrors in the bedroom can invite a third party to interfere in your relationship.

Keep in mind that TV and any other reflective surfaces are also considered mirrors since they have the same reflective properties.

13. Keep all bedroom doors closed at night, including closet and bathroom doors.

14.  According to Feng Shui masters and modern sleep experts, you should remove all electronic items from your bedroom.

Even when turned off, televisions and other appliances give off electromagnetic energy while you sleep, causing harm to your immune system and mental state.

If you can’t sleep without your smartphone, keep it, at least three feet from where you rest your head.

15. You should never keep anything work- or exercise-related in your bedroom. In Feng Shui, the energy emitted by the exercise gear or desk is work energy, which is directly opposite to the energy emitted by the bed, which is rest energy.

“Rest and Work conflict, so you should not combine the two to avoid clashing energies.”

 

If you have no choice, hide such items as best as you can.

 

16. When you select wall art, choose subjects that reflect an experience or vision you’d like to have, such as success, love or inner peace.

One of the best places to hang such an image is on the wall opposite your bed so that you see it first thing when you wake up and the last thing before you go to sleep.

Avoid images in which a lake, waterfall, or river is the dominant theme.

Hanging art with a single solitary image will encourage feeling of loneliness and isolation.

Avoid overly dramatic art or things that give you a strong emotional response.

Consider displaying photos of special moments that the two of you have shared together.

Avoid artwork with groupings of three, like three people or three animals, which can bring the thought of a third party into the relationship.

Make sure the image contains pairings, for example, a portrait of the two of you or a painting of two trees, or two birds.

“One type of art you don’t want in the bedroom it’s Family photos.”

You can have pictures of your parents, pets or your kids all over the rest of the house, but the focus in the bedroom should be on yourself and your partner.

Studies have found that colors definitely affect behavior, emotions, and moods.

 

17. The best Feng Shui bedroom colors are those that match skin tones.


They could range from white to brown and everything in between, including beige, ivory, khaki.


Light blues, greens, and lavenders are considered restful and conducive to sleep. But too many cool colors are believed to interfere with relaxation.


Aim for a balance of 80 % warm cream tones and 20 % cool blues, greens, or lavenders.

18. Be sure to incorporate some cream-colored, cozy and fuzzy items in your bedroom.

They create a warm, nourishing energy—sort of like a goodnight hug. Nice, right?
