How to feng shui your bedroom
There are many ways and design elements through which you can feng shui your bedroom in an effective way to optimize and balance natural energy for your benefits:-
placement of your bed on the right wall
Placement of bed plays an important role in the feng shui concept.
The bed should be placed along the solid wall in the bedroom that symbolizes stability and power to your mind.
Bed’s placement should be as far as possible from the door and it should not be in the line of the door opening.
As otherwise, positive energy will flow out of the room through door.
Avoid placing the bed against the window wall or any depressed wall as in result it will result in loss of positive energy and stability power.
The bed should not be placed under any heavy depression in the ceiling like beam structure.
If the bed is placed under the wrong position then you would suffer headaches or bad sleep throughout the night and it will affect your performance daily.
Make habit of decluttering
Your bedroom should be a place of relaxation not a place of mental exercise.
If your room is clutter-free then it is easy for natural positive energy to free flow around you that will provide you sound sleep and positive energy.
Clutters within your room and under the bed will promote evil energies within the room.
Keep your closet and room in a well-organized way so that you would have control over all objects in your room and have progressive energy in the bedroom.
So, go and place your bed properly right now.
create bed headboard
A good solid headboard of the bed provides you stability and support in your life virtually.
This will help you in promoting your big and positive thoughts. The bed headboard should be fixed to bed properly.
The headboard should not be in the design of bars otherwise it will give a feeling of prisoners and depressive feelings.
I think you would surely want to avoid it.
place pair of things
In feng shui, you should always use a pair of design elements. Like a pair of night light stand on each side of the table this will help in creating balance within the room.
Using pairs in your bedroom helps in providing the feeling of equality and balance in you and your life partner.
This will enhance your relationship and brings happiness between you and your partner.
This is the best solution to put a stop on the couple’s quarrels and to stop their relationship issues.
Art speaks deep meaning
The artwork is an essential design element for your bedroom. You may be an artwork lover but you need to be careful here.
While choosing artwork or painting for your bedroom you should consider some point so that it will bring positive energy to your bedroom.
- choose artwork that brings joys and happiness on your face.
- Choose a painting that brings a view of pair for your eyes in the room.
- paintings that bring depression should be avoided.
Now you need to place your loved artwork at the right height.
As it should not be below eye level or at a lower level, below 5 feet from floor level.
The plant brings no harmony
Plants are the best friends of nature and humans as well.
Plants are the symbol of earth and great energy. they release and absorb large amounts of energy in your bedroom.
There fore, it is suggested in feng shui to avoid indoor plants in your bedroom. As they may disturb your mental growth as well as disturb the natural flow of positive energy in your room.
You must use other sources of greenery in your room like the use of green color.
Balance your colors
Colors plays an important role in fluctuating your mood and flow of natural energy at the same time.
So, choose wisely the theme of your bedroom.
Vibrant colors will promote a high level of energy which I think you don’t need in your bedroom at least.
So always go for a neutral theme in your bedroom which brings calmness, relaxation, happiness, and coziness in your room. Best colors for the bedroom are:-
- light brown
- chocolate color
Cool colors help in creating overwhelming nature which creates a positive atmosphere within the room automatically.
Gadgets are nowadays are as essential as air for us in our daily life.
But to have a good sleep and innovative thought you must need to avoid electronic prone items in your bedroom.
Gadgets release a high level of electromagnetic energy which not only reflects negative vibes but also affects our body organs still when not using them.
Bring natural light in
Now here comes the other play of natural elements for you.
You should bring in natural light in your bedroom to add life to your bedroom.
Morning sunlight brings positivity and energy with it, so try to bring natural light in the morning time.
Try to design artificial light in a such way that it spreads equally all around the room and there must not be any dead corner in your room.
Dark corners provoke negative energy and will disturb positive energy to free flow.
Do not use vibrant color light shades in your room like red, orange, or purple. colors like white, off white, must be the main color tone for your bedroom lighting.
Store books out of your room
Book reading is one of the best habits for personal and professional growth proved by researches.
If you are a bookworm then you are keeping lots of books with you in your room.
That is not a good symbol in the language of feng shui.
Books related to work must be kept outside your room and you must not have a bookshelf in your room.
As the feng shui concept says books have active energy round the clock and this will hinder your sound sleep.
So right now think and shift your bookshelf to other rooms if you are a facing problem of sound sleep.
I am not saying to put all books out of the room. just keep your current reading book in your room and put all other books to another place.
I know this brings a smile on your face.
Add softness in the room
While designing furniture or selecting any accessory for your bedroom design try to avoid sharp and edge cutting shape in your bedroom.
Sharp shapes disturb mental health and give a feeling of hardship and roughness.
This in result brings your mood depressive and sad. sharp corner depicts arrow and this promotes negative energy in feng shui.
Free-flowing and curvy shapes bring and add smoothness within the room. this allows the free flow of positive energy throughout the room.
A mirror is one of the most reflecting elements in the room. It reflects energy with a double rate and may increase the level of energy in the room.
This will make you disturb sleep as the room gets overcharged. So, avoid mirrors in your room.
If still you want to place a mirror in your room then try not to put it in the line of bed at least and cover the mirror when you are not using it to reduce its effect on your life and mood.
In feng shui in not to do list water element came to first position.
You must avoid water elements at any cost in your bedroom though water symbolizes financial growth, this is not a good element for a bedroom.
Try to avoid anything related to water like painting, aquarium of use of blue color in your bedroom.
