Fengshui Tips: The Placement of Bed

Fengshui Tips: The Placement of Bed

Your bed is the most important fengshui piece of furniture in your entire life. It is the only piece of furniture that has the most intimate connection to your personal energy. The role of fengshui of your bed and your bedroom in relation to your health, well-being, as well as the quality of your relationship cannot be overestimated. There are few things that you have to pay attention to….

√ Good height

To allow for a balanced fengshui energy flow under the bed you need to have your bed at a reasonable height above the floor level. The beds that have built-in storage drawers underneath is considered bad fengshui beds. Because the energy needs to circulate around your body when you sleep, which is not possible if the space underneath the bed is blocked.

√ Bed should have a solid wall behind it

Having a solid wall behind the bed gives the occupant a feeling of safety and security. The ideal position would be to have the head of the bed against the back exterior wall of the house as this is the most secure location of all. If this is not possible the easiest cure for this is to ensure that you have a very solid headboard, the best are those that are either made of very solid wood or covered in very thick fabric.

× Mirror facing the bed
× 镜子对着卧床

You probably know that a mirror facing the bed is a big fengshui red flag. Either a mirror from a closet door or a piece of furniture or a free standing mirror, you do not want a mirror to reflect your bed.

× Beams,  ceiling fan or a chandelier above your bed
× 卧床上方有横梁、吊扇或吊灯

The only thing you want above your bed when you sleep is a soft canopy. This is about it. Nothing heavy, hanging, please do not hang wind chimes and bells above your head, this is bad fengshui.

× Sharp angles pointing at you when you sleep
× 忌尖角指向你

Be it from the nearby nightstands, from a further away piece of furniture, such as a chest of drawers, or from a sharp wall corner, be sure to neutralize all the sharp energy aiming at your bed.

× Bed under a sloped ceiling
× 卧床在倾斜天花板的下方

When you spend time under a sloped ceiling, your energy is being heavily constricted and is under constant pressure.  As nighttime is the only time when your body can do the deep work of regenerating itself, sleeping under a sloped ceiling restricts this work, thus one’s health may suffer. Sleeping in a bed under a sloped ceiling can also contribute to emotional instability and low energy.
