In order to have a harmonious bedroom with a beneficial influence on other aspects of your life, you can use the following 10 Feng Shui principles.
10 Feng Shui Advices for Bedroom
1. The ideal choice for setting the bedroom is to pick the farthest room from the main entry door of the house. Subconsciously, this will induce a feeling of safety, stability and protection. The worst place for having the bedroom is next to the main door, however, we need to be realistic because sometimes there’s really not much of a choice. However, if you don’t have this option, take into consideration the other advices and make the most of the space you have.
2. In order to achieve a warm and pleasant ambiance, paint the bedroom walls in neutral colors, like cream or peach; light blue, green and lavender are colors that invoke a healing energy. If you want to improve your relationship with your partner, choose pink and red – these colors will contribute to your love life. Don’t forget that these colors can be used only as minimal accents; strong colors as red, orange or yellow are mostly associated with Yang and can be too stimulating for bedroom.
3. Place the bed as far as possible from the door and avoid a straight line position with it. Don’t place it under a window because it would lack the symbolical protection of a solid wall and it might cause a tormented sleep, due to the energy that flows in and out of the window. Invest in a headboard because it offer a good support for the head.
Avoid at all costs to sleep with your feet towards the door. In the Chinese traditional culture, this is called the “death position” because the deceased are carried out with their feet facing the door.
The Feng Shui practitioners consider that sleeping in this position can drain the vital life force. If you have no way of avoiding this, you should use a bed that has a feet board or a piece of furniture placed in from of the bed.
Leave enough space around the bed to facilitate the free flow of energy and so you can easily get out of bed.
Always use curved lines, nor corners, because the sharp corners of the bedroom furniture are considered “poisoned arrows” which direct the positive energy away from you, creating a restless atmosphere. To avoid this and to achieve a flowing effect, decorate the corners with fabric.
4. Clutter in your bedroom hinders the free flow of Chi. However, don’t try to solve this problem by hiding everything under the bed because this will only block the energy and will cause a stagnation in your life. Give some thought to the objects you keep in the bedroom and remove any elements related to work and all the things that have anything to do with past memories that would better be forgotten; for example, gifts from past relationships.
5. Place a plant in a corner of your bedroom to prevent the stagnation of energy in that very corner.
6. Remove objects like TV, fitness equipment and computer because they tend to absorb a lot of energy and they can distract you from getting rest or from having some romantic moments. Few books placed on the nightstand can encourage Zen, however, if you have a bedroom full of bookcases that need to be read, they can also sidetrack you from getting rest. If you really want to have these elements in your bedroom, the best idea is to use a screen to hide them while you sleep.
7. If you are not involved into a relationship, but you wish to be, you can decorate your bedroom as if you were already involved into a relationship. Place nightstands and lamps on both sides of the bed. Use pairs of accessories and make sure everything is symmetrical.
If you don’t live by yourself, consider the bed as an altar of love by placing on the nightstand objects like couple pictures, a pair of candles and a plant with round leaves. Don’t forget to add few pink or red accessories around the bed to encourage romance.
8. Place in the bedroom art pieces or various objects representing the Earth Dog Year 2018.
9. Avoid to place the mirror on the opposite side, next or above the bed. This will reflect the energy in the entire room, it will not allow you to enjoy a pleasant rest and it will intensify all your problems and worries. The mirrors from the bedroom are considered an invitation for a third person to interfere in your relationship with your partner. The only way to avoid this is to place decorative objects in front of such a mirror, covering them up when you go to bed.
10. Illumination is a very important factor in Feng Shui. Use blinders that can be easily opened in the morning to allow in the natural daylight and easily closed at night to block the darkness from outside.
