Feng Shui Do’s and Don’ts

Feng Shui Masters have long known that environmental factors play a big role in how we feel and think.

Your home or working environment could be detrimental to your health and financial prosperity.  How?  Your environment, such as; roads, freeways, water ways, drainage canals and physical structures along with buildings or transformers and interior architectural features, could bring positive or very destructive energies, creating delays, obstacles, loss of employment and ill health.

The bedroom is one of the most important rooms.  It is the place where your body regenerates from a hard day’s work.   It is where families are planned and strong loving marital relationships are nurtured.  It is of utmost importance that this space contain auspicious energies.

The following are  general do’s and don’ts to help you become more aware of your surroundings:

  • 1.  Do not sleep under a beam.  If you must, cover it with fabric.
  • 2.  T.V. must be covered when not in use. Watching violent programs before retiring is not conducive to good sleep.
  • 3.  Do not sleep under a window.  If you must,  then place a tall solid headboard behind your bed.  It is best to have a solid wall behind you.
  • 4.  Never align your feet with the door.
  • 5.  Never sleep on the same wall as the entrance door to bedroom.  If you must, then place a mirror where you can see who enters the room.
  • 6.  A bedroom placed at the end of a long hallway is not positive.  Keep the door closed.

7.  Do not place your bed between a mirror and a window or between two windows. This arrangement could bring restless sleep. Use window coverings such as blinds or draperies.

8.  Book shelves above a bed is very oppressive.

9.  Skylights are not considered positive in a bedroom and could cause health problems over a period of time. Cover the area or move the bed away from the area.

  • 10.Bedroom is for rest. Therefore computers and/or desks should be in another room.  The same goes for studies.  Reading for pleasure is O.K.
  • These are a few do’s and don’ts.
