How to Feng Shui Your Bedroom to Attract Love into Your Life

picture-1 Step 1

BED POSITION Positioning your bed properly is the first important step to feng shui your bedroom. Ideally the bed should hold the "command" position. When you walk into the room, the bed is positioned on the opposite wall. You want the widest scope of the room to be available to you as you lie in bed. You want to see the bedroom door but you do not want the foot of the bed to be in alignment with the door. (Word has it that the Chinese carried their dead out the door feet first, hence the aversion to feet facing door). Avoid placing the bed under a window. If this is necessary, a headboard will help to anchor the energy.

. Step 2

EASY ACCESS In order to send the message energetically that you are wanting to share your bedroom with another, make sure the bed is accessible on both sides. The bed should NOT be placed in a corner. You want to send the message that 2 people are sleeping here (or not sleeping as the case may be).

. Step 3

A PLACE FOR HIM OR HER Place 2 uniform bedside tables with lamps that are of equal height on either side of the bed. Even if you are currently single, it is important to provide a space for your future lover to read, a place for them to set their eyeglasses down, a place for their glass of water. You get the idea. Act as if...

. Step 4

CREATE SERENITY Remove all clutter from the bedroom. No storage under the bed (this creates unwanted stimulation in your sleeping environment even if you can't see it!). Remove your stacks of books and magazines. Too many words = information overload. A book or 2 on the nightstand is fine, just don't overdo it. Of course televisions are not ideal in the bedroom. If you have one, cover it with a beautiful cloth when not in use or store it in the armoire.

. Step 5

WHO'S WATCHING YOU? Remove all religious imagery and pictures of people who can "see" you when sleeping (or not sleeping as the case may be). Who wants to be watched while they sleep or make love? There are some things Grandma or Buddha just should not witness.

. Step 6

SIMPLICITY Keep it simple! Paint the room a soothing color. Warm natural tones are best. Cooling colors can have a cooling effect on your love life! Avoid too many crazy making patterns on your bedding and walls. A Zen-like quality really is best for the bedroom.

. Step 7

COUPLING UP Remove any images that remind you of your single status. It's amazing how many people have things around them that support their single status : pictures of solitary women, lonely winter scenes, empty boats, etc. Replace with pairs of things. You want to be paired up? Place that intention in your space with things that will remind of that! Pairs of candlesticks, pairs of statues, pictures that have pairs of people or animals in them. Think dynamic duo!

Enhance your Relationship with Feng Shui

  red hearts

Whether you are looking for Mr or Mrs Right or you already have him or her in your life, Feng Shui – ancient Chinese art – will enhance your special partnership and make your love life sparkle. How does it work? You need to ensure that the energy called Chi, flows freely in your home by placing your furniture and personal objects around you in a specific way. The objective is to create for yourself an environment that reflects the love life you want.
 

Here are the 9 top tips for Feng Shui in the bedroom:

 

 
1) Clean up your bedroom — When your bedroom is cluttered and untidy, the energy in there will be low and slow. Clutter is a sure sign that chi is stuck, so roll up your sleeves and clean the place up if you want to jump-start your love life. Ring a bell, shake a rattle, or clap your hands loudly around the room to clear out old, stale energy.
2) Position your bed harmoniously — The rule of thumb for proper bed position is to place it on a solid wall, diagonal from the door, allowing full view of the room and its entry while lying in bed. Avoid placing the bed in line with a doorway, since this can cause feelings of vulnerability and defensiveness. Also avoid alignment with the bathroom door, as this can contribute to feeling drained, tired or having restless sleep pattern.
3) Add a Solid Headboard to Your Bed — A headboard represents support, and energetically brings both sides of the bed together, creating harmonious union for partners. If possible, avoid metal headboards since they can be conductive (particularly sensitive people have difficulty resting peacefully on metal-framed beds or near a metal headboard).
4) Display Romantic Artwork — No matter where the master bedroom is located in your home, surround yourselves with art that calls forth a feeling of love and romance with each other. Be careful of art that has a single man or single woman pictured in it, or one that has three or more people in it. Relationships are challenging enough between two people; bringing a third party into your bedroom, even in art, is just not supportive to a couple.
5) Think pink, peach, Red and white — Pink and white are the colors of relationship. You can use them for your bed sheets, your undergarments, pillows, accents. Peach is the color of new love. If you want to attract a new partner, use peach in your bedroom.  Red represents hot passion. His power is unlimited.
 
6) Remove old relationship energy Go through your home--especially your bedroom--and remove anything that reminds you of past failed relationships; this could be an ex-boyfriend's old sweater you find in the closet, photographs of you with a previous partner, a gift that reminds you (unfavorably) of a giver with whom you are no longer in love--anything that reminds you of a love that went bad. No matter how incurable a romantic you may be, do NOT keep old love letters anywhere in your bedroom unless they are from someone with whom you are still blissfully paired up.
7) Get things in pairs — Set up a nightstand on both sides of your bed, to accommodate the needs of your partner. Include lamps (so that he or she can read romantic poetry to you at night!). And get things in pairs: pillows, candles…
8) Open the door to love Make sure both the front door of your home and the door to your bedroom open easily and completely. Doors that stick, squeak, or that only opens partway because of all the stuff stored behind them are blocking the flow of romantic energy and opportunity into your home. A loose doorknob on your bedroom door could mean you're having a hard time "getting a handle on" romance; get out your screwdriver and tighten it up.
9) Clarify your intention Make a collage of images that symbolize your perfect relationship, and place it where you will see it every day. Compose a list of the qualities of your ideal soul mate on a red page and place it in the love area of your bedroom (right hand far corner from the door).  If you are already in a relationship, invite your partner to make collage with you, to represent your intention to build a joyful and loving future together.
Now that you have all the tools, let’s Feng Shui your bedroom and enjoy the Love!
