a feng shui bedroom

Welcome to All in the Detail... I am so glad you are here!yin-and-yang-and-feng-shui-culture Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics believed to use the laws of both Heaven (astronomy) and Earth (geography) to help one improve life by receiving positive energy. It’s a complex knowledge on 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. And 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.

A good Feng Shui bedroom promotes a harmonious flow of nourishing and sensual energy… a bedroom that invites you, lures you in, excites and calms at the same time. A good Feng Shui bedroom is fun and pleasurable to be in, whether you’re there for a quick nap, a good night sleep or to make passionate love! Your bedroom’s furnishings and layout can greatly affect your sleep and energy.

Here are a few Feng Shui suggestions for a more peaceful bedroom
television Let go of the TV, computer, or exercise equipment in your bedroom.
The good Feng Shui energy in your bedroom is destroyed when these items are present. Studies show that electromagnetic fields from televisions, computers, and even exercise machines can interfere with brain and nervous system signals, disrupting slumber.

 
modern-bedroom-with-plants Open the windows often or use a good quality air-purifier to keep the air in your bedroom fresh and full of oxygen.
Be mindful of the quality of air in your bedroom. You cannot have good Feng Shui in your bedroom if the air you breathe in is stale and full of pollutants. Note that plants in the bedroom are not necessarily good Feng Shui, unless your bedroom is fairly large and the plants are located far from the bed. However, studies show that just looking at nature can lower blood pressure. Flowers and plants signal new growth to your subconscious -- and a positive outlook brings peace.

 
hotel room Have several levels of lighting in your bedroom, or use a dimmer switch to adjust the energy accordingly.
Good, appropriate lighting is very important, as light is our #1 nutrient and one of the strongest manifestations of energy. Candles are the best Feng Shui bedroom lighting, but be sure to buy candles that have a pleasing scent and have no toxins.

 
skintone Use soothing colors to achieve a good Feng Shui balance in your bedroom.
A Feng Shui bedroom decor is a balanced decor that promotes the best flow of energy for restorative sleep, as well as sexual healing. The best Feng Shui colors for the bedroom are considered the so-called "skin colors", and we know the colors of human skin vary from pale white to rich chocolate brown. Choose colors within this color palette that will work best for your bedroom decor.

 
Art Bedroom Choose images for your bedroom wisely, as images carry powerful Feng Shui energy.
The best Feng Shui advice for the bedroom art is to choose images that you want to see happening in your life. Unless you enjoy being sad and lonely, don’t use sad and lonely images in your bedroom. Simple enough, right? Also remember that a messy area symbolizes unfinished business and keeps your mind in an anxious state. So keep books neatly stacked and odds and ends out of sight in covered boxes or baskets.

Follow these basic Feng Shui Guidelines for your bed:
  • have your bed easily approachable from both sides,
  • have two bedside tables (one on each side)…remember - pairing of items in a room creates harmony and is more pleasing to your senses,
  • avoid having the bed in a direct line with the door
bedroom A "good looking" and well-balanced bed is very important in creating a perfect Feng Shui bedroom. Good mattress, solid headboard and high quality sheets from natural fibers are also very important in creating harmonious Feng Shui energy.

door Keep all the bedroom doors closed at night, the closet doors, the en-suite bathroom door and the bedroom door.
This will allow for the best and most nourishing flow of energy to strengthen your health, as well as the health of your relationship.


The idea of a perfect Feng Shui bedroom may bring different images to different people, but in a good Feng Shui bedroom, every item will reflect the clear intent for love, healing and relaxation.
