If you had to pick one room in the home, you definitely want to Feng Shui your bedroom.
For over 3,000 years, Feng Shui has always been an important part of the Chinese culture. It is the practice of harmonizing the different natural elements and harnessing energy from our surroundings. This energy is known to the Chinese as Chi and is said to bring people total health and abundance.
The bedroom Feng Shui is very important because one third of your life is spent in the bedroom. The bedroom environment is directly related to your rest and sleep, so the bedroom Feng Shui decides whether you can have exuberant energy, ruddy complexion, and so on.
If you share your home with a spouse or partner, note that a bedroom with good Feng Shui is thought to strengthen the bond between couples and attract love. So for the sake of better sleep and a boost to your relationship, consider these tips for improving the Feng Shui in your bedroom.
NOT TOO LARGE
The human body is an energy body which distributes energy to the outside all the time, just like the working air conditioning, thus the bigger the floor area is, the more energy it consumes.
NOT TOO SMALL
The master bedroom shall not be too small or less than 3 square meters because living in a too small bedroom will make you feel depressed.
BEDROOM DOOR LOCATION
The best position of the entrance should be somewhere on the side position of the bed where it can be seen. This is known as the command position.
A headboard represents stability and support in your life, and especially your romantic relationships. The best headboards are solid, without any perforations.
BRIGHT IN DAYTIME, DIM AT NIGHT
The bedroom shall have a window for ventilation, which can make you refreshed in the daytime; at night, the window shall be covered with the curtain to block the outdoor night lights, so that you can fall asleep easily.
CLEAR THE CLUTTER
According to Feng Shui, clutter is more than a distracting eyesore. It can block the flow of qi, disturb sleep, and generally prevent things in your life from moving forward.
REDUCE EMFs IN THE BEDROOM
We all know that the presence of devices in our bedrooms disrupts our sleep and circadian rhythms. Buying an alarm clock and reading only books are two ways to keep you entertained without needing a phone or other electronics.
If you aren’t sleeping well, a mirror in your bedroom could be the culprit. Mirrors are thought to bounce energy around the bedroom, which may result in restlessness and amplify worries.
In general, try to have two of everything you can. Couples should have two (ideally) identical nightstands one on each side of the bed, for example.
COLOR FRIENDLY FENG-SHUI
Sense and pay attention to what colors you’re attracted to. Sometimes we know exactly what we need if we just listen. If you desire a little more passion in your bedroom, try adding some splashes of red.
The bedroom is the most important room of the home in feng shui philosophy. The bedroom symbolizes you. So, any feng shui changes you make in the bedroom are closest to you so they affect you the most significantly.
