According to Feng Shui principles; the bedroom’s interior design is vital to the individual’s Chi (energy) and lousy placement of furniture can lead to feelings of lethargy, stagnation, and even depression.
In the book Feng Shui, Arranging Your Home to Change Your Life (published in 2018 by Villard Books), author Charles Langford writes that she believes the way sleeping hours are spent in the bedroom will influence the individual throughout the day. The occupants would enjoy a tranquil day if their sleep were relaxed. Sleep filled with restless hours leads to a long day filled with anxiety. Everything from love, health, and wealth to total happiness is affected by how the bedroom is decorated.
Most of us spend a third of our lives in our bedrooms. It is a fact. To most, the bedroom is a sanctuary. A place to seek solace and respite from the world. A place to feel comfortable or serene. According to Feng Shui principles, a feng shui bedroom will fill the sleeper’s life with serenity, thus avoiding much anxiety and restless nights.
Bed Placement. The bed should be placed in an auspicious corner of the feng shui bedroom so that positive chi might flow easily through the door into the room. Chi is energy. And chi can be negative or positive, according to Feng Shui Masters.
Feng Shui Tips
The bed must never block the door. This blocks chi. When an occupant’s head is aligned with the door, they will have a restless sleep. You should place the bed against a solid wall for support. Placing a bed near a window allows positive chi to escape out the window while sleeping. Feng Shui Masters believe the sleeper’s head should be north. A north-south alignment places the sleeper’s body in direct alignment with the earth, and the sleeper receives natural magnetic energy. This direct energy enhances dreams and helps the dreamer remember them.
Feng Shui Bedroom Decor
Bedroom Furniture: Feng Shui principles state that mirrors should not reflect the bed. The sleeper’s spirit rises at night and might be shocked to see their image. Furniture with sharp edges should not point to the sleeper in bed. Pointing edges cause negative energy. Furniture should be stylish, and painted in relaxing colours, while bold reds and golds should be avoided.
The shape of the bedroom is essential to all occupants. A rectangular or square shape is most auspicious. This allows chi to flow smoothly. An irregular-shaped bedroom with jutting corners sloped ceilings causes negative chi leading to restless occupants.
Bedroom Location. If couples want a happy and exceptionally long marriage. Feng Shui principles dictate that the bedroom should occupy the southwest section of the home as far away as possible from street noise and disturbances. Place attractive pictures with loving couples or beautiful scenery in view, so this is what the occupants see when they fall asleep and the first thing they see when they awake in the morning. This creates a most auspicious and love-filled atmosphere for the couple.
Follow these principles to enhance the home and bedroom atmosphere and improve chi, luck, and love.
