You may wonder why having good feng shui in your bedroom is important. It’s quite simple really, good feng shui makes for a flow of harmonious and positive energy in what is one of the most important rooms of your home.
Your bedroom is a place for relaxation, fun, sleep and intimacy, and you want it to have the most advantageous atmosphere for you to enjoy all of those things. If you’re not an expert on feng shui, simply put it’s all about arranging your environment to ensure the smooth flow of energy, helping to make you feel good and to support you in your daily life and ambitions. We’re going to take a look at five ways to improve the feng shui in your bedroom.
1. Get rid of the electronics
One of the most important aspects of promoting good feng shui in your bedroom is to remove any electronics from the room. This includes computers, mobile phones and especially televisions. One reason why doing this is so important is that they interrupt the positive and loving relationships that can exist within the bedroom. Another reason is that electronic devices increase the presence of Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs). EMFs are a type of electromagnetic radiation which is given off from all electronic devices. There is uncertainty as to how much harm EMFs can do, but research has suggested that they can interfere with the production of melatonin by the pineal gland, which helps dictate sleep patterns. Knowing this you can begin to see why removing the electronics from your bedroom is such an important part of creating good feng shui.
2. Declutter the space
If you want to ensure that your bedroom has good feng shui you need to make sure that the room is well ordered and de-cluttered. Having order and space in the room allows the energy to flow more efficiently, whereas clutter interrupts the process. It’s also essential that you can easily access both sides of your bed as limited access can restrict the flow of energy when you sleep; a time at which you need to replenish the good energy in your body.
3. Position your bed correctly
The position of your bed is vital in establishing good feng shui in your bedroom. There are several considerations you need to be aware of.
- Your bed should not face a mirror as a mirror can deplete your energy when your body needs it most; to repair itself at night.
- Your bed should not be under a sloping ceiling, as this can restrict, and put pressure on, your energy.
- Your bed should not be under a window as your body needs the support of both a strong headboard and a solid wall, to help with rejuvenation during the night.
- Your bed should not face any sharp corners as they are sha chi, or poison arrows, which direct strong energy to attack your personal energy.
- Your bed should not be aligned with a door, as your energy will be drawn out through your feet as you sleep at night.
You should also be aware of which direction your bed should face in. In order to find your lucky direction you need to first calculate your kua number. It’s amazing how important something as seemingly simple as placing your bed, can be.
4. Keep your air fresh
If you want to have good feng shui in your bedroom, you can’t have stale air. Therefore, it could be a good idea to invest in a Hospital grade air purifier. However, if you think that you may not have the funds to do so, then opening the windows during the day could also prove to be beneficial– it can allow the air to flow. Using essential oils in the room can also help to keep it fresh, and the oils themselves can have healing properties. Although plants are often said to help with the condition of the air in your home, they are not good for feng shui in the bedroom, unless you have a very large bedroom, and they are well away from the bed.
5. Choose the right colour
This isn’t necessarily a straightforward process from the point of view of establishing good feng shui. The simplest method of using colour to produce good feng shui is to adopt the use of skin tones which are generally regarded highly in the world of feng shui; these shades range from a light porcelain shade to deep chocolate brown. These tones are said to resemble a nourishing embrace.
You can also use your own personal energy to establish what colours are best, or you can define the bagua of your home, which helps you to establish what colour scheme is best used for the space. Whichever method you choose, balanced décor is important in establishing good feng shui.
For centuries people have believed in the power of good feng shui, and you can bring that power to your bedroom. Our tips should help you to improve the positive energy in your bedroom by adopting good feng shui techniques.
