Your bedroom should be a peaceful haven in which you can relax and wind up. If that’s not the case, then something is surely missing, and according to our instincts, it could be feng shui.
Feng shui is the Chinese translation for “wind-water” and refers to the Chinese art of placement. The goal of feng shui is to create a harmonious environment that will boost health, increase wealth, and create happiness.
Feng shui in the bedroom will enable you to place your bed rest in the best way possible and also connect with your spouse in the most harmonious manner possible, according to feng shui expert Jemmy Barret, the author of Feng Shui Your Life.
Implement the following feng shui tips into your bedroom to transform it into a serene and comforting haven.
Use Soothing Colors
For the bedroom, you should concentrate on warm colors that reflect vibrant art and warm tones like cream, peach, and cocoa.
Embedding soft, tranquil colors such as lavender and sky blue will make your bedroom appear tranquil and quiet, which will, in turn, welcome healing energy.
Avoid over-stimulating colors like orange and maroon since they are linked to Yan, the masculine of Yin. Again, you may use bright colors like red and pink since they depict romance and will strengthen the bond between you and your partner.
Good Bed Positioning
According to feng shui, you should place your bed as far away from the entrance as possible but also in a spot where you can keep a protective gaze on the door.
The best place to position your bed is at the nook of the room, where it will face diagonally opposite to the door. This position is the best in ensuring that healthy chi, good sleep, and relaxation.
Choose Curves Over Corners
Avoid square corners as they come with sharp edges, which in turn create poison arrows that are rumored to harm you while you’re asleep.
Secondly, you should create a ‘Zen’ nightstand and keep a lamp, inspirational books, and beautiful pictures on it.
You should always keep your bedroom neat and organized and ensure each item is placed in a proper place. Clutter and disorganization are signs of unfinished business and hinder progress.
Furthermore, make sure that you only place items that you associate with good memories in your bedroom. Things such as photo frames with your ex, which invoke negative emotions, should be banished from your bedroom.
Heirloom furniture that your ancestors disliked should also not be allowed to grace your bedroom. Additionally, you should pay attention to the clutter in the wardrobes. If your closet is disorganized and you feel overwhelmed when opening it, consider organizing it and getting rid of unnecessary items.
Dislodge clothes, shoes, handbags, neckties, and all items which are no longer used or are out of fashion from your closet and re-organize it to ensure that your wardrobe is clutter-free.
