Four Parts:Applying Feng Shui to Your BedAvoiding Negative EnergyCreating Balance Through ColorsMaking Other ConsiderationsCommunity Q&A

The ancient Chinese method of Feng Shui helps us to balance our homes and create happier, more successful lives, room by room. We often turn our attention to the bedroom, the sanctuary where we can rest and recharge. Having the proper Feng Shui in the bedroom can help your romantic life as well as your ability to rest and to feel in control. You have to know how to keep the chi flowing, and how to deflect any negative energy that may enter your room -- and your life. If you want to know how to Feng Shui your bedroom, just see Step 1 to get started.

Part 1

1

Have a solid headboard. The best Feng Shui headboards are the ones that are solid and made from wood, or the upholstered ones, as they have a very good combination of solid, but also gentle and supporting Feng Shui energy for you and your bedroom. While you are drifting off to sleep, your body is going into an extra busy energy repair work on many levels. Subconsciously, your head needs good backing, protection and support, just like your back needs it when you are sitting in a chair for extended periods of time.

2

Get a supportive mattress. There are a variety of mattresses on the market, choose wisely and invest in the one that will promote best sleep and relaxation. The better you sleep at night, the better your health during the day, this is really simple. Be mindful of good Feng Shui and do not buy used mattresses - you never know what energy they have accumulated from previous owners.

3

Make sure the bed is a good height. To allow for a balanced Feng Shui energy flow under the bed, you need to have your bed at a reasonable height above the floor level. Generally, the beds that have built-in storage drawers underneath to help you with storage solutions are considered bad Feng Shui beds. Why? Because the energy needs to circulate around your body when you sleep, which is not possible if the space underneath the bed is blocked.

5

Have a good supporting wall behind your bed. In addition to a good headboard, you always want to have a solid wall behind your bed. When you sleep under the window, your personal energy tends to get weaker in time, as it has neither proper support, nor protection.

7

Keep your bed far away from any TVs, desks, or other distractions. Ideally, you should move your desk and television out of your bedroom, so the bedroom truly becomes a place where you can rest and relax. However, we all have limited space, so if you do have a television or a desk in your room, position it as far from your bed as possible to not get in the way of the bed's positive energy. If you can, drape a light scarf or blanket over the TV or desk, or even cover it up with a Japanese folding closet to create even more space.

Part 2

1

Avoid a mirror that faces your bed or a mirrored set of closet doors. If these mirrors are fixtures that you can't get rid of, then drape some fabric over them. Left exposed, they are thought to disturb your sleep. In general, you should avoid having mirrors in your bedroom, especially if you're sharing it with a romantic partner, because they may open up a space for infidelity. Mirrors are also too energetic for such a restful space.

2

Refrain from positioning your bed directly under a beam. A beam may create feelings of pressure that can disrupt your sleep. If you have no other options, cover the beam with fabric or hang 2 bamboo flutes from the beam with the mouthpieces pointed downward. This will help block some of the unwanted energy coming from above the bed. The idea is that you don't want to feel threatened in your sleep.

3

Skip fountains and water features. Also, don't hang up pictures of water or place an aquarium in your room. These could invite possible financial loss or robbery. Keep your fish tank or paintings of water or rivers out of the bedroom if you want to have the best possible Feng Shui.

5

Avoid accumulating clutter around your bed or pushing one side of your bed against a wall. The Chi can't circulate, which means possible disturbances in your intimate life. If your bed is up against a wall, then one partner will have to sleep on the inside, becoming literally "trapped" in the relationship.

6

Get rid of your television. Television creates an unhealthy magnetic field which may disrupt your sleep, strain your relationship with your partner or bring a third party into the bedroom. If you have to keep it in the bedroom, then try to cover it with a scarf when you're not using it. If you're really serious about it, hide the TV in the closet when you're not using it, or place it on a shelf that can lock up, hiding the TV when it's not in use.

Be aware of the position of the windows. If you can, try to avoid placing your bed between the window and a door, or you'll be in the middle of the "draught" of chi running between these two places. If you can't avoid it, just make sure you have nice, pleasant curtains to block some of the bad energy. You should also avoid sleeping facing the window, if you can, or your sleep won't be as restful.

5

Aim for equality. Try to have equal space on either side of your bed and other furniture. A person should be able to walk around as easily around one side of the room as the other, within reason. Of course, a piece of furniture may add some inequality, but in general, you should avoid letting most of the stuff in the bedroom clutter over to one side, or you'll create discord in your most important room.

6

Get rid of clothes you no longer wear. Go through your closet and drawer and remove all of the clothes you haven't worn within the last year. Donate these clothes or pass them on to a friend or relative if they can still be worn. Even though you may not see the old clothes, keeping them in your bedroom may prevent you from embracing new opportunities.

8

Make sure your bedroom isn't too crowded. Keep your bedroom as spare and simple as possible. Don't add extra chairs, lamps, or pictures to your bedroom if you're not sure whether or not they are really necessary. The more stuff you have in there, the more difficult it may be to find balance.

9

Get rid of any clutter. To have optimal Feng Shui in your bedroom, you have to get rid of any extra papers, trash, old trinkets, silly photos, useless gifts, or really just anything you don't really need in there. If you have too much sentimental attachment to some of the items, you can put them in storage or another room, but work on minimizing the stuff you really need in your bedroom. Having a spare and uncluttered bedroom will lead to an uncluttered and fulfilling life.

What should I do if I have windows on two of the bedroom walls?

wikiHow Contributor

You can get yourself some nice curtains, and decorate around the windows accordingly.

Can I have a mirror above the headboard of my bed?

wikiHow Contributor

No, that creates a very strong negative energy and you won't be able to sleep well.

How do I arrange the nine areas of a bedroom so that the focus is on the love corner?

wikiHow Contributor

Declutter the area. Place red or fire element colors there. Add a painting/picture of a couple or animals or something that makes you feel love. Also, pair things, i.e. 2 pillows instead of 1 or 3, 2 candles or nightstands instead of 1, etc.

If I have to choose between placing the bed on a metal bed frame or directly on the floor, which is typically the wiser decision?

wikiHow Contributor

I would say to keep your bed off the floor on a metal frame. Even though the frame is solid, you will still have energy flow underneath your bed, unlike if you left it either without a backboard or on the floor.

I have a beam above my bed and two doors, one we use and one that remains closed. What should I do? And, my room is light purple. Should I change it?

wikiHow Contributor

Treat the door you don't use as a wall (like it's not there) and move your bed accordingly if possible. Light purple isn't bad but bring in other colors to help bring balance like yellow and dark purple accents with silver fixtures.

If I have two doors in my bedroom, can I put my bed in front of one of the doors?

wikiHow Contributor

If you won't be using that door, then yes you can. Also, if your family is okay with it, you could consider getting the door removed.

I have two doors in my apartment and mainly use the back door as a front door, so which is my main door?

wikiHow Contributor

The door that you actually use (in this case, your back door) should be treated as a "front door."

What can I place in a room to avoid negative energy from mirrors?

wikiHow Contributor

Place the mirror so that it doesn't face your bed, such as placing it on the other side of the same wall that your bedhead rests against. You can hide the mirror as well, such as throwing a cloth over it or, if it's on a dressing stand, flipping it around to face the wall during sleep. Inside a closet door that gets shut is another good place for it.

My bed will only fit under the window. What should I do now?

wikiHow Contributor

This is the same issue I have. I don't think its a massive deal -- just make sure you have blinds/curtains to stop the light disturbing your sleep. Ultimately, your room is supposed to be like a sanctuary, free from distractions and free from chaos. I think this can still be achieved, despite the location of the bed.

My bed is on the opposite side of my room, which is very small. I can only fit one night stand, as I have cupboards on the left hand side of my room. Are the cupboards a problem?

wikiHow Contributor

Ultimately, if your room is quite small, it's important to utilise the space you have -- and without over-packing it with furniture. Keep in mind, minimalism is key. Are these cupboards for clothing? How much do you really need the night stand? More storage sometimes tempts people to get extra things. If the cupboards are for clothing, and you have very little floor space, then I'm tempted to say ditch the bedside table.
