The bedroom not only plays a role in attracting and maintaining good relationships but also supports your health. There are many reasons for ill health – long term stress, incorrect diet, lack of exercise etc…. By reassessing those areas of your life in conjunction with implementing ideal Feng Shui principles then good health can be achieved.
One of the most important considerations when assessing health using Feng Shui guidelines is the position of your bedroom within the home and your bed within that room. However, if you are experiencing ill health then my suggestion is to try using another room or placing the bed in a different location within the bedroom.
Other factors that can assist you in your pursuit of good health are:-
- Do not have any mirrors in the bedroom, especially if the mirror is reflecting any portion of the bed whilst you are sleeping. If this is the case remove the offending mirror altogether or cover it with a thick fabric or screen.
- Remove the television – apart from the electrical concerns it has a reflective quality, which in turn has a similar effect, albeit minor, as that of a mirror.
- Ensure that the external electrical box is not located on the same wall as the bed head.
- Ensure that your bedroom is not opposite a T-junction (see diagram 1). If moving to another room is out of the question, then a ‘special shield’ can be used to reduce the impact.
- Ensure that your bedroom is not located in direct line of any sharp corners, fences or spikes. (see diagram 2.)
- It is preferable to not sleep on a waterbed as stability is required when sleeping.
- Do not have your bedroom located at the point of a bow shaped road (see diagram 3).
- A triangular shaped bedroom creates arguments and it is said that the occupants of the bedroom are prone to heart attacks. In this instance walls would have to be built so as to square off the room.
- I have seen numerous boot shaped bedrooms (see diagram 4) and these are particularly inauspicious if you are sleeping at the end of the boot.
- If you are experiencing headaches or poor sleep and are sleeping with your head against a window as well as being in direct line with the door then try moving your bed so that your bed head is resting against a solid wall. Having said this, there are times when it is more appropriate to have your bed head resting against a window and this can only be determined by specific individually based data and when certain conditions are prevailing.
- It is important to not have your bed resting under an overhanging beam. It would serve you best to simply move the bed in this instance.
