Bedrooms are very important in feng shui to many people. Your bed and your bedroom have to have good feng shui to support your inner energy and lifestyle.
This guide and tips are very easy to follow. The feng shui bed placement, however, is where you will encounter a lot of different challenges, all depending on your bedroom options.
The first step in creating good feng shui energy in your bedroom is to do your best to follow this guide. This means having a bed with a solid headboard, mattress, good frame height, and no storage underneath!
Examine your bedroom and see if you can place the bed in the ideal feng shui spot – the so-called feng shui commanding position. The feng shui commanding position is the area further from the door/diagonally from the door, but not in line with it.
In other words, you want to see the door while you are lying down, but not aligned with the door.
A strong support wall behind your bed is a good feng shui bed placement. This creates strong, protective energy around, giving it more power and ability to create good and positive energy. Try your best to position it in such a way that there is a solid wall behind it. For added strength, you can also choose to paint the wall in an accent colour appropriate to your bedroom decor.
Having a balanced and grounded energy on both sides is very important for a good feng shui bed placement. This means you have to have two nightstands (not one), but it doesn’t mean they have to match! Be as creative as you want and let your imagination run wild, two different pieces can produce some amazing aesthetics. But be sure that you have access from both sides to manoeuvre!
Be sure no sharp angles are pointing at you while you sleep. This energy is called Sha Chi/attacking energy in feng shui and can come from various wall angles or sharp corners of the nearby furniture. Scrutinize your bedroom space to avoid any attacking energy directed at you while you sleep.
Avoid lining up with the bedroom door, as well as any other doors – be it balcony doors, bathroom door, walk-in closet, or patio doors. If it is in line with any door, be sure to position an appropriate or beautiful piece of furniture between the bed and the door.
It is always good to position your bed away from the walls that have electric appliances on either side (computer, fridge, or TV). And, of course, it is best to limit (or eliminate) the electrical appliances in your bedroom for feng shui and for your own health being
No tv? No iPad, no cell phones? Yes, this is exactly what it means. It is possible (and very healthy) to limit your exposure to electrical appliances in the bedroom. For example, if you switch your electrical alarm clock for a battery operated one, you will considerably be lowering the harmful EMFs. Your body and mind will thank you.
If possible, place it according to your best, or lucky feng shui directions. Notice this list did not start with any feng shui lucky directions first. Do not place your bed in a corner or placing at a strange angle just so that you can sleep facing your particular feng shui direction. And do not sleep in the living room just so that you can face your best directions. This might sound weird and funny, but in fact, some people do that!
When finding the best placement for your bed, you should always listen to yourself and the room, so to speak, and experiment with different bed placement. If you can have both best feng shui bed placement and your best directions requirements met, awesome! If you can’t, do not worry as it is not the end of the world.
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 instead focus on facing your lucky directions at your workplace, while watching TV, or when you are having dinner.
