There are many different benefits to Feng Shui, especially in your bedroom. Most of us want our bedroom to not only be our personal castle, but a place where we can relax and re-group ourselves when life gets stressful. Basic principles of Feng Shui are based on the Chinese principles of Ba- Gua. This is to say that there are deep meanings in where you place objects in your room based on an octagon grid.
So how does this work for your bedroom? Simple. Where you place things on this octagonal grid will help you achieve peace in your bedroom. You would need to take out obnoxiously angled objects like work out equipment and the like, because they cant “fit” anywhere on the grid. Which brings us to the next point: to start bringing the elements of Feng Shui in your home, you need to take out any kind of clutter, or just clean your room. Feng Shui deals with balance, and if your home is messy you are not able to apply anything to your room.
The elements of Feng Shui are earth elements, which are fire, metal, earth, wood and water. Fire is red, yellow, orange, purple or pink. Earth is light yellow and all the brownish tones you would normally think of when you think of earth tones. Metals are whites and grays and water is blue and sometimes with black tones.
There are tons of ways you can create the element that you want in your room. You can interchange colors to create combinations of peaceful, relaxing elements in your home. When you place your bed, one good tip is to keep your bed facing the door so that you can have an eye on who is coming and going. This is a basic principle of Feng Shui. A suggestion would be to place the bed in your room or apartment’s bedroom first, then place everything else around the room. If you and your partner have gotten married, one principle of Feng Shui suggests putting everything in your bedroom in pairs so that you will have marital bliss as apposed to sharing everything.
How you decide to decorate your room is up to you, but the basics of Feng Shui need to be applied for everything to work the way it’s intended to and give you the results you desire, this includes direction and color.
