Position Your Bed with Feng Shui
Bedrooms are very important in Feng Shui for obvious reasons. Your bed and your bedroom have to have good feng shui to support your
personal energy. Your bed also has to maintain the feng shui energy of love and healing. That's a lot of feng shui responsibility for just one piece of furniture, isn't it?
Feng Shui bed guidelines are quite easy to follow and implement. Feng shui bed placement, however, is where you may encounter many challenges, all depending on your existing bedroom options.
The first step in creating good feng shui energy in your bedroom is to do your best in meeting the feng shui bed guidelines (Read- part 1). Let's assume you already have a good feng shui bed just waiting for the right placement in your bedroom!
The second step is to examine your bedroom and see if you can place the bed in the ideal feng shui spot for your bed - the so-called feng shui command position.
Feng shui command position is the area further from the door / diagonally from the door, but not in line with the door. In other words, you want to be able to see the door while in bed, but not be aligned with the door.
The other feng shui criteria for a good bed placement are:
• Good supporting wall behind your bed.
• Grounding and balanced energy on both sides (e.g. nightstands.)
• No sharp angles (from wall or furniture corners) pointing at you while you sleep.
It is always smart to position your bed away from the walls that have electric appliances on either side (the computer, the fridge, or the TV.) And, of course, it is best feng shui to limit (or completely eliminate!) the electrical appliances in your bedroom.
For example, you could switch the electrical alarm clock for a battery operated one, you will considerably lower the harmful EMFs in your bedroom. And your body will thank you!
• Avoid a bed in line with the bedroom door, as well as any other doors - be they balcony doors, bathroom door, walk-in closet or patio doors.
• If possible, place the bed according to your best, or lucky feng shui directions. This will be determined through a Feng Shui consultation.
When finding the best placement for your bed, you should always listen to the room, so to speak, and experiment with the best bed placement. If you can have both best feng shui bed placement and your best directions requirements met, then great!
Do not place your bed in a corner or angle the bed in a room just so that you can sleep facing your best feng shui directions. And do not sleep in the living room just so that you can face your best directions!
Approach feng shui logically and practically, and, most importantly, in an empowered way. If your bed cannot face your best feng shui directions, you can sure focus on facing your lucky directions when you work, watch TV, or eat dinner! Be creative and be smart, and know that there are solutions for almost everything in feng shui.
If at this point you are thinking "There is no way I can find a good feng shui bed position in my poor bedroom!", then the next part of this article is for you. Let's deal with possible challenges in your bedroom and find the best feng shui solutions for them.
