Sleep Direction to Feng Shui in the Bedroom
A fantastic night’s sleep only makes you a nicer person to be around. And, when you organize your bed in its perfect position using the principles of feng shui as a rule, then you may see a rise in riches and romance, says Kathryn Weber, feng shui specialist, consultant and creator of the Red Lotus Letter website. The first rule in feng shui bed positioning states don’t place the foot of the bed toward a door which opens into the room. If you’ve got a decor hangover in the ’70s — mirrored walls above and across from the bed — eliminate them; mirrors in the bedroom reflect bad energy.
Good Energy Flow
Feng shui, an ancient Eastern practice which dates back over a thousand years, operates on the principle which you should optimize the flow of chi, the energy force behind all living and nonliving things, through your house. The ideal positioning for your bed is against a strong wall where it doesn’t face a mirror or a open door or reveal a wall with a toilet, sink or stove, as those all negatively affect or drain energy. Avoid putting a bed directly under big beams, but in the event that you have to, soften the strong chi by draping a canopy above the bed.
Doors to this Side
Avoid putting a bed directly beneath a window, since the energy of storms may disrupt your sleep. Doors which open directly to both sides of this bed may also be not a fantastic idea, unless the door is on an opposite wall and the door opens to the left or straight beyond the bed’s foot board. The optimum arrangement for a bedroom would be to get the door open on the opposite wall closest the left corner of this room. This allows the energy to flow into the room without the bed occupant’s feet facing the traditional death position. In Eastern cultures, following departure, bodies were removed feet-first in the room.
