Feng Shui – Is your Bed Positioned facing the right direction?
I think I might be going a bit Feng shui mad at the moment but I have just found this article on what direction to position your bed in order to maximise the chi. Fascinating stuff ! I did not use to believe that the bedroom environment was particularly important.Well, I didn’t pay any particular attention to my bedroom. After graduating at university (I surprised even my neurologist – but I am stubborn and once I have made up my mind to do something I will succeed), I spent 6 months painting and living in a small room. It wasn’t the brightest idea because of all the toxins and my overall health suffered. I believe that Feng shui is based on common sense. In most cases there is a natural explanation to why it ‘s recommended to do this and to do that.
Depending on which direction you position the bed, you will have various other advantages through Feng Shui. For example, you can place your bed either facing East, South East, West, North West or South West for best results.
West :When you face your bed west, you create the best conditions for a good night’s sleep. West is contentment. However contentment can also bring with it laziness and low motivation, so starting a new career while your bed is facing this direction might not be the best idea. This is ideal for people who already have a good career going.
East: Eastern positioning of your bed will make you feel that every day is a new day indeed. If you are young, just starting out, this is the perfect way to sleep. This brings out in any person feelings of ambition and growth and it easily promotes career expansion.
South East: This is for people who have trouble communicating as it promotes good communication, an enhanced creativity and a rather active life.
South West: If you are rather restless, facing your bed the South West direction will calm you down and make you feel at peace with all there is. You will also have a feeling of being more settled in your life and relationship.
What you should avoid instead is placing your sleeping quarters in bad positions for Feng Shui, such as North, North East and South.
North: North can increase various sleep disorders such as insomnia and make you rather lethargic in your life. This position is often called the ‘death position’. If you are an older person, such as a senior citizen, this position might be good for you as it really promotes a calmness and tranquility that you can mostly benefit from.
North East: This can easily give nightmares to a person and make one feel at edge at all times. It brings out strong emotions.
South: South is really bad for sleep as the energy surrounding it is rather high. If you find yourself in many heated arguments in your relationship, one way to minimize those is to change the direction of your sleeping quarters.
