What is Feng Shui ?
This is a simple question that can be difficult to answer.Feng Shui is an ancient art and science developed over 3,000 years ago in China. It is a complex body of knowledge that reveals how to balance the energies of any given space to assure the health and good fortune for people inhabiting it.
Feng means wind and shui means water. In Chinese culture wind and water are associated with good health, thus good feng shui came to mean good fortune, while bad feng shui means bad luck, or misfortune.
Creating a feng shui bedroom does not have to be an expensive or tedious activity. You certainly can do it yourself quite effortlessly if you know exactly what you should look out for.
First, recognize that the bedroom is yours and your partner (for couple) personal oasis. This is the place to recharge and rejuvenate after a long stressful day.
This is also the place where you (and your partner) should feel protected and comfortable. Hmm…it’s also the room for intimacy, of course.
You see, the activities are less rigorous in nature and hence the room is more Yin in nature.
There are 5 aspects you should really look into to create the ultimate feng shui bedroom. I will address them one by one here.
Choosing the Right Feng Shui Colors
For a blissful marriage, use color pink (or rose) as the main color for the master bedroom.
If you are seeking love, peach is a suitable color to boost your love luck.
Soft green and blue are also suitable colors for the bedroom as they are colors of hope and cultivation.
By the way, you can use green for your children’s room too as it also symbolizes knowledge.
You may like to consider using butter cream, taupe, beige or terra cotta. These colors are perfectly fine for the bedroom too.
Take note to avoid bright colors like red, orange and yellow in this rejuvenation room.
Bed – Needless to explain, the bed is the focal point of the bedroom. Position the bed in such a way that you can get a good view of the room door.
Having said that, avoid position where your feet face the door. This is commonly known as the “coffin” position by the Chinese.
Also avoid bed placement where foot of bed directed to a window or bed head beneath a window as this interrupts sleep
Other Feng Shui Bedroom Tips
- Refrain from having too many photos in the room especially children photo (for those with kids).
- Keep office work out of the bedroom.
- Avoid rigorous exercise such as aerobic.
- Use only bedroom furniture that you need.
- Avoid playing loud, rock music in the bedroom.
- Keep the bathroom door close, preferably with a screen. (This applies to the bedroom with attached bathroom.) You may consider crystal bead screen using black or dark crystals like onyx and lapis lazuli. This keeps and prevents excessive water chi into the room.
- Do not place a fish tank in the bedroom as it energizes and stimulates too much chi to give you a restful sleep.
- Clear the clutter especial those under the bed to allow the flow of chi causing backache.
- Avoid direct placement of bed under beam as it may cause headaches and nervous disorder.
- Avoid bright lighting directly over the head of the bed as it may cause eye sight and liver problem.
