Bedroom feng shui basics

As most of us spend a third of our lives in the bedroom, it’s worth getting it right. Why not start with these feng shui basics?

Ideally, your bed should be positioned diagonally from the door, against a solid wall. Placing beds directly under windows is not generally recommended, but if it’s unavoidable, be sure to draw the curtains or blind at night. Facing ensuite doors should also be avoided, as the watery energy may adversely affect your health (don’t forget to close the door as well).

When possible, bedside tables should be placed at the sides of your bed, as these help to anchor and protect the bed. If you’re looking for love, don’t just have one bedside table; place a table at either side, to ‘make space’ for someone else – even before they materialise.

Try not to position your bed directly under a beam; when running across your body they can affect your health (for example, across the stomach may bring digestive problems), while lengthways can cause rifts in relationships.

Feng shui looks at the total environment, so electromagnetic fields should be assessed (if possible, with a Gauss meter). Spending time in high fields can disturb sleep and play havoc with your health, so always turn off electric blankets, move chargers and modems, and check that you’re not sleeping near a meter box.

I always check for high electromagnetic fields when visiting clients, (for a space clearing or feng shui consultation), and find problems in roughly every six homes! Luckily, the solution is often as simple as shifting the bed.
