How to Position Your Bed for Good Feng Shui
Do you want some restful sleep? Are you looking to start each day recharged and full of energy? Then take some steps to make that happen!
Bedroom arrangement is essential in Feng Shui. Much about your energy is determined by your bedroom and the position of your bed.
While you sleep, you recharge. The exact position of your bed can help charge you in positive, healing and loving ways or it can leave you feeling restless and drained. The choice is yours.
The points I make here are more than just Feng Shui cures, they are a blueprint for how you should arrange your bedroom.
Keep an Open Mind
The Feng Shui rules of the bed are simple. Being able to adhere to those rules, however, can sometimes get a little tricky. The location of your bedroom and layout of your room can sometimes put you in a bind.
The first step here is to have an open mind. Just because you have had your bed a certain way does not mean it should continue to be that way. Do you want excellent sleep and do you want to be recharged with positive energy every night? Then, you may need to make some serious and creative changes.
Next, we need to try to get your bed in the ideal Feng Shui position. Keep these points in mind:
The best position for a bed is one where you can see the door from the bed, but you are not in direct line with the door (any door, if possible — even closets or bathrooms). Energy enters through doors. Energy could be in the form of Chi, light, radio waves, etc. Redirecting and/or eliminating any of these types of energy can help you get better sleep.
Have the head of your bed against a solid wall (no windows or doors on the same wall).
As with doors, try not to place your bed in line with a window.
Keep energy balanced around your bed. If you have a nightstand on one side, have an identical one on the other side. Do not place a side of your bed against a wall, such as in a corner of the room.
Remove mirrors that may be pointing at your bed. Mirrors produce too much energy for restful sleep and are often the cause of many types of body aches or health issues.
Avoid poison arrows, like the corners of walls or furniture, from pointing at you while you sleep. If otherwise unavoidable, block them with decor or furniture.
Avoid ceiling fans, as they create a cutting energy. Do you notice that you also wake up with dry sinuses and a headache?
Minimize exciting imagery and objects in your room. This is not the place to add a motivational poster with people skydiving, for instance.
If possible, avoid all electronics in the bedroom, including TVs, cellphones, alarm clocks, etc. I can’t stress this point enough. If you must have something electronic in the room, try only using battery-powered devices and keep them as far as possible from the bed. Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) may be very unsafe and are known to prevent restful sleep. I would even go so far as to recommend cutting off electricity to outlet wiring in the bedroom.
Now, add some things to your bedroom that will help you relax. Items that help with aromatherapy or a white noise machine can be incredibly helpful. Your choice of calming colors also helps immensely.
Don’t forget that your bedroom also represents love.
Keep things in pairs and use symbolism to represent yourself being in a loving relationship, even if you are single. Make room for your partner or future partner.
When you get a chance, spend some time learning about the Feng Shui Love Corner, as taking some of the steps mentioned will help ground you, resulting in better sleep.
With some bedrooms, the above requirements will seem like they are next to impossible to achieve. Get creative when you Feng Shui.
For instance, if you have a closet door which is the only thing keeping you from your ideal bedroom setup, keep it closed when you sleep and cover it with a drape or a Japanese folding screen.
Still stuck? Sleep on it. Before bed, enhance your Creative Area and have a positive mindset that you will determine creative ways to make your sleeping arrangement more ideal.
This is one of those things that I think is essential in Feng Shui. Restful and recharging sleep can help you make the most of your life. Make it happen!
