Feng Shui Tips For Your Bed Room
For the uninitiated, feng shui is an ancient Chinese system surrounding spatial relationships within the home that ultimately promotes harmony with one's living quarters.
The ideal bed placement allows you to see the bedroom door while you're in bed without being directly in front of or in line with it. According to feng shui, having a view of the door from bed without being too close to it gives a sense of safety and is conducive to relaxation and sleep.
The head of the bed should be against a wall, but not under a window which could allow qi to flow outside and cause restless sleep.
If moving your bed isn't an option, feng shui practitioners sometimes recommend hanging a bamboo flute (a special feng shui device) from the beam or fan to offset the effects. If there are two people sleeping in the bed, there should be equal space on both sides of it so each person can get into and out of bed easily.
According to feng shui, if you aren't sleeping well, a mirror in your bedroom could be the culprit. Mirrors are thought to bounce energy around the bedroom, which may result in restlessness and amplify worries.
It's especially important not to hang a mirror on the wall opposite your bed. Feng shui consultants say this can promote the intrusion of a third party into a couple's relationship and possibly encourage infidelity.
