The Feng Shui Bedroom: Peace And Tranquility

Aug 17, 2007
Our bedrooms are probably the most important rooms in the house. After all, we do spend the majority of our time in them! So it's little wonder why many people are now looking to improve the ambience of their bedroom with the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui. As we continue to live in an ever stressful world which is forever changing and racing ahead, many people are looking for a spiritual break away from it all, and the Feng Shui Bedroom gives many the peace and tranquility they seek.

The decor of our bedroom along with the beds and bedding items can be responsible for quality sleep or lack or it depending on how we've organized our rooms. Restless nights or problems getting to sleep can be due to cluttered rooms with busy decoration. Many folks have found that by incorporating Feng Shui into their sleeping areas has resulted in a profound positive impact on the way they sleep at nights.

Although Feng Shui can seem like quite a learning curve for the novice, the basic principles are very easy to grasp. Based on the patterns of nature, Feng Shui is all about where to place every individual object in your bedroom. It's about the flow of energy in our lives and it's said to bring us good health and prosperity along with peace of mind and improved wellbeing, and let's face it, we could all do with a little bit of that!

I have personally adopted the principles of Feng Shui into my bedroom after suffering a couple of years of restless nights and shallow sleeping. I was a little skeptical at first but amazingly I now feel extremely restful in my bedroom plus considerably warmer and a lot more secure. I don't really understand it nor do I want to try to micro analyze it, all I know is that it's worked for me and countless others so I leave it at that.

Here are some simple tips on creating a Feng Shui bedroom:

* Position your bed so that you can see the door, but do not have your feet pointing towards it as dead people are supposedly carried out of the bedroom feet first and so it's bad for karma. Also try to keep you bed as far away from the door as the room will allow.

* Try not to sleep with you head under or too close to a window. Apparently, sleeping to close to a window means it's harder to wake up in the mornings as your 'chi' will dissipate.

* If you have an ensuite bathroom, shower room, or toilet, make sure that the toilet lid is down and the door is shut before you settle down for the night.

* Your bed should have a strong sturdy headboard.
* Bedside tables should have rounded, not sharp, square edges.
* Choose soft lighting wherever possible and avoid ceiling lamps.
* Decorate with pastel shades.
* You should not be able to see your own reflection in a mirror whilst in bed.
* Have a beautiful ornament or plant positioned so that it's the first thing you see on awakening.
* Rid the room of unwanted clutter, and this includes those items shoved into drawers and under the bed.

I've just touched on a few suggestions here. There are more and there are also some very interesting explanations as to why these thing work if you decide to dig a little deeper into the fascinating ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui.

This short piece should give you a little insight into the Feng Shui bedroom. It's completely transformed the atmosphere of my bedroom environment for the better, and coming from a skeptic, that's one heck of a statement.
