When it comes to Feng Shui in the bedroom, you should arrange the space to support your best rest and connection with your partner and with yourself. The ambience of the bedroom should be inviting, exciting and calming all tied into one. Whether you’re going to be in the room for an afternoon nap, a good night’s sleep or for a round of mad passionate lovemaking, you should get the feeling that the room is pleasurable and fun to be in.
Here are seven simple tips to create a Feng Shui bedroom:
- Fresh air. If you can’t have your windows open all the time (or live in an area where if they were open you would be inhaling pollutants), invest in an air purifier. Fresh air is important in good Feng Shui energy.
Note: You should not use any type of plant or flower in your bedroom especially if it’s a small room. If you do choose to use them, make sure they are as far away from your bed as possible.
- No electronics or exercise equipment. At some point in time (maybe even right this very minute) you’ve probably had a TV, computer or some piece of exercise equipment in your bedroom. Meaning you know how distracting it is and easy to get lured into checking email one more time or watching the latest episode of Desperate Housewives. The logic behind not having a computer in the bedroom is because it’s often associated with work and your bed is associated with rest. Work and rest are opposite of each other so when it comes to Feng Shui, the energy of these two is incompatible. Having these distractions in your room is the quickest way to destroy Feng Shui energy. So get rid of them…now!
- Lighting. Your mood in the bedroom can be affected (either negatively or positively) by the lighting. The best option is candles but make sure you use ones that are toxin free.
- The position of your bed. Make sure that you can get in and out of your bed from both sides. Place a nightstand on either side of the bed. And make sure it is not in direct line of the doorway.
- Mirrors. If you are going to have mirrors in your bedroom make sure they aren’t near the bed where you can see your face and upper body in the reflection.
- Clutter. Just as having a TV, computer or exercise equipment in your bedroom is a distraction, but so is clutter. Keep things neat, picked up and put away. It’s important to clear out anything under your bed, behind a door, etc because these areas get stale and can harbor negative energy.
- At night, keep all bedroom doors closed. Make sure that every night you close any doors in your bedroom. That means closet doors, a bathroom door and the bedroom door.
What one person has in mind for their perfect Feng Shui bedroom doesn’t mean another person is going to envision the same thing. However, every Feng Shui bedroom will have one thing in common and that’s the inviting, exciting and calming atmosphere it should give off.
