Tips for Good Feng Shui – Part 4

If you’ve been following along with our series of Feng Shui tips, today, in our final post, we’re using Feng Shui to address the one of the most important rooms in the home – the bedroom. These are my top tips for creating positive energy in the bedroom using Feng Shui.

Bedroom

Occasional insomnia might be the result of unbalanced energy in your bedroom. Try the following suggestions, but if your room design doesn’t permit perfect Feng Shui, be creative. Experiment with variations and modifications of these ideas to find what works for you.

Place your headboard against a wall to ground your power.

Place your bed diagonally opposite the door so you have a commanding view of the mouth of the Chi and will be in the best position to receive life-force energy as it enters the room. Sleeping is a vulnerable state, so it’s important that your bedroom be supportive to your being.

Do not sleep with your head or feet directly pointed at the door. It’s believed this is a disruptive sleeping position because when a corpse leaves a room it goes feet first.

Avoid putting the head of the bed under a window or exposed beam which gives off bad energy and can lead to unbalanced sleep. If it must be under a window, keep the curtains drawn.

The use of mirrors in your home can create energies that are either very good or very bad, and bedroom mirrors are strictly taboo. Believed to cause infidelity and bad luck, avoid them in this room, particularly opposite the foot of your bed. If you must include them, drape them with cloth or suppress the negative energy with plants or wind chimes.

In conclusion…

From fish to wind chimes to crystals, it’s easy to go overboard and become overwhelmed by Feng Shui. But you don’t have to do everything at once, so go slowly and carefully choose what works best for you. Looking for a good place to start? — Learn how to say it (fung shway) and remove clutter. In Feng Shui, neatness definitely counts.

I hope you will embrace the idea of Feng-Shui and apply some of these philosophies to you life. Please send me pictures and comments. I want to know how these changes affect your life!

Tips for Good Feng Shui – Part 3

This post is the third in a four part series on tips for using Feng Shui to achieve harmony and balance in your home.

Accessories

Anything made of crystal is good as it acts as a prism and brings in more good Chi.

Wind chimes are excellent Feng Shui tools. Use six or eight rods to enhance good luck, and five rods (preferably made of metal) to “push down” bad energy.

To attract influential people into your life, place a wind chime with six or eight metal rods in the north-west of your living room.

Color

Use colors to create balance. Every color has a unique vibrational frequency and the five elements are each represented by color, as shown on the Ba Gua. For example, if you want to relax, green — associated with the element wood and life aspiration for health and family — is the most soothing color and a great choice for bedrooms. If you have white walls you can balance out your colors with rugs, pictures, chairs, etc. Avoid too much of any one color.

Fish

Place a fish tank in the north sector of your living room or home office to energize the career aspiration which is governed by water. Place one in the south-east sector to activate the wealth area. The best fish to use are arrowana or goldfish: eight gold and one black or two gold and one black are auspicious combinations.

Tomorrow, we’ll be wrapping up this little series on tips for good feng shui with one of the most important rooms in the home.

Tips for Good Feng Shui – Part 2

Today we’re sharing more tips on how to use Feng Shui to achieve harmony within your home.

Yin and Yang Feng Shui Tips

Hallway

If you have long corridors or cramped spaces in your home, paint them white and keep them well lit to ensure your Chi does not become stagnant.

Lighting

Adequate natural lighting, as well as artificial lighting is important. You can enhance light further with mirrors to boost the energy in the home, increase opportunities and broaden possibilities.

Mirrors

Mirrors are referred to as the aspirin of Feng Shui. They can correct many problems, but they must be used properly. When placed badly, mirrors can cause problems, especially in the bedroom.

  • When part of your floor plan is missing a corner, place a mirror on the opposite wall to “create” the missing area.
  • A mirror at the bottom of stairs will slow down the Chi going downstairs.
  • Use mirrors to open up small, cramped spaces and amplify light. This will prevent Chi from becoming stagnant.
  • Draw in the good energy of pleasant views. Mirrors should reflect something you want to see more of, such as your garden, trees or light.

Floor Coverings

A carpet should blend with all the elements of the room, but the ruling element (ie: wood if the room is in the north) should help you choose the color and pattern. A rug can activate healthy energy flow into and through your living space by highlighting specific parts of a room.

The Bathroom

At last you can give the men in your home a good reason to keep the toilet cover closed — doing so prevents Chi being unnecessarily flushed away.

Windows

Fix and repair windows. They are the eyes of the Chi and affect one’s clarity, so replace broken glass panes and clean the windows. Chi flows through windows even when they’re closed.
