Feng shui your bedroom

Your bedroom is not only the most important room in your home, but also in your life. It’s the room where you can just be yourself … let your emotions free, cry, pray, reconnect with yourself, think and make decisions about what’s best for you, your family and the future.

Feng shui is an ancient Chinese art of arranging living spaces in such a way to maximise the flow of energy in the room for safety and productivity. In your bedroom you need to
experience peaceful sleep, which is very important for your well-being and health.

Here are a few guidelines on how to turn your bedroom into a joyful sanctuary the feng
shui way.

• When you enter your bedroom, first impressions should be calmness, beauty and peacefulness.

• Remove any object that makes you unhappy. Get rid of clutter and keep only what you need.

• Photos, paintings and ornaments should set a tone of beauty and peace.

• Clear stuff from under your bed. Clutter under the bed can create unnecessary stress and headache.

• Close the bathroom and bedroom doors when you are sleeping. Position your bed centrally and out of line from the bedroom door.

• Books are active energy and stimulate our minds. For a more restful night’s sleep, try moving the books out.

• Remove the laundry basket from the room. The stale energy of unwashed clothes will affect your energy and the quality of your sleep.

• Cover or remove the television, computer or other electronic devices from your bedroom as they emit EMF (electromotive force) which might affect your sleep quality.

• Remove or cover the mirrors from your bedroom. Mirrors activate and duplicate and are a very powerful feng shui cure, but they don’t belong in the bedroom as the energy could disrupt your sleep.

• Make your bed inviting and be sure you can get into bed without removing lots of pillows. Simple is best for rest.

• Bright primary colours should not be part of your bedroom décor because they will cause too much energy. Bright yellow has been shown to cause a colicky reaction in small children, making them cry a lot.

• Clean, fresh scents are best. For warmth and romance, try vanilla. For rest and calm, use lavender. Rose and geranium are good for love and harmony (but only if you like them).

• Change your pillows (or clean them) frequently (at least once a year).
