When it comes to feng shui, it all comes down to paying attention to the details of your living space and surrounding. This will help you create an environment that will enable and support your personal development and transformation.
The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in feng shui and a place that may need energy refreshment. Proper bed positioning can help enhance the sense of security, stability, and balance.
To the door
To place your bed properly, you need to find the “commanding position.” This means when you are sitting or lying in your bed, you should be able to see the door to your bedroom indirectly or without being in line with it directly. As a result, you should be able to look diagonally towards the door.
To the window
As for windows, avoid positioning your bed directly below them, especially if your bedroom is on the ground floor. This is because it can create a sense of insecurity since it is less safe than positioning the bed in a wall that does not have a window.
The headboard should also be right up against the wall to provide stability.
Direction of bed
In terms of the magnetic compass direction, you can position your bed in any direction but north, northeast, and south.
Positioning your bed towards the northern direction usually causes many sleeping disorders, including insomnia, and makes you sluggish in life.
This north direction is usually known as the ‘death position.’ It is usually recommended to senior people. It also promotes a sense of calmness and tranquility that fits the older generation rather than the young ones.
Northeast direction can give you nightmares and make you feel at edge at all times, as well as bringing out strong emotions.
The south direction is bad for your sleep. This area is usually characterized by strong energy that will disturb your sleep. Notice you engage in some heated arguments with people or your relationship. This might be one of the reasons, so consider changing the direction of your bed.
Basically, you want your bed to face the remaining directions – west, east, southeast, and southwest.
Once you have nailed the appropriate direction, you want to observe the bedroom feng shui taboos.
One of the most important things other than proper bed placement is the decoration of the bedroom. How you design your bedroom will determine the harmonious relationship between the energies within the room.
Flower in bedroom
Don’t rush to add flowers and plants in your bedroom, as it can drain your sexual relationships and bring it to a standstill.
It is also important to not hear or see the water while lying on the bed, such as a fountain or toilet.
Mirror in bedroom
If you want to hang a mirror in the bedroom, keep in mind that this feng shui “aspirin” is usually used in the “method of minor additions,” and you must connect it with an intention. You should only use mirrors in the bedroom when you want to correct or adjust the room’s qi.
