Feng Shui for the Bedroom
Feng Shui is a practice from the Orient that is meant to bring peace, harmony, and balance to any life. This is something that is applied to all physical spaces that a person may occupy in the hopes that when done right, this practice will bring happiness to a person that can then feel content. As a result, there are many things you can do in your home to achieve balance and to help with the things that mean the most to you. You may find that you can get a better night of sleep if you follow some basic Feng Shui rules when putting together or rearranging your bedroom.
Watch the position of your bed. You should make sure that you never have your head pointed towards the door of your bedroom. This will probably not happen, but be sure to avoid it. Also, do not sleep so that you are directly across from the door. You should be in view of it, however. This is not only a Feng Shui principal, but a common sense one as well. If you feel secure that you can see what is going on if a noise happens outside your doorway you are going to feel better as you sleep. That results in a better nights sleep.
It is believed that if you sleep directly under a window that bad chi can come into the window and go directly into you. In order to block bad chi from entering through a window hang a thick curtain to block that bad energy. Along the same lines, keep your bed away from the wall by at least a few inches and do not put it into a corner. This allows positive energy to move around your bed unfettered so that you can get a better night of sleep and your good energy will be revived as you sleep.
There are other small things that you can do to improve your sleep through using Feng Shui for the bedroom. You should make sure your feet are not point towards the door when sleeping and that there are no pictures of water in the room at any time. Avoid beams above the bed as they cut good energy down quickly. An old and worn mattress signifies and old and worn relationship with your spouse, so get a new bed if needed. When a bathroom is off the side of the room, keep the door closed while sleeping. Avoid seeing an image of yourself at the foot of the bed when you are sleeping, and keep the space under your bed clean and clear of any objects.
