The bedroom is like a haven of rest and comfort in our home.
It should be a place where you feel relaxed and comfortable.
However, Feng Shui flaws in construction or interior design can disrupt your otherwise peaceful life.
Like good “Chi” energy, there is bad “Sha” energy or attack energy. Here are some ways to rid your room of Sha.
No heavy artwork on the headboard
Usually we tend to hang a large photograph or painting to adorn the wall above the headboard, but Feng Shui does not recommend this.
Instead, you can have lightweight wall hangings or several small picture frames.
Large images can produce heavy, menacing energy.
Likewise, remove any tall, heavy furniture that makes you feel oppressed in bed.
You don’t want anything sharp pointing at your face while you sleep.
This includes the edges of furniture, any protruding walls, an overhead beam on the ceiling, etc.
Sharp edges are “Sha” or bad energy, which can lead to health problems.
You can cover the beams with a false ceiling, or at least change the placement of the bed so that it’s not directly under the beam.
Electronic gadgets emit electromagnetic energy when you sleep, even if they are not turned on.
Technically, sleeping with your smartphone right next to you is also not recommended. Keep these electronic items away from you at night.
You should not place televisions and computers in your bedroom for the same reason. It should be a tech-free zone.
Like Vastu Shastra, Feng Shui does not endorse mirrors in front of the bed.
A mirror reflecting the bed is said to invite a third person into the relationship.
Mirrors reflect energy back into the room, which can be disturbing while sleeping.
If you have no other place for it, at least make sure it doesn’t mirror the bed, but something you like.
Avoid having artwork with threesomes in the bedroom, as this can bring the thought of a third party into your relationship.
If you are single and looking for a partner, avoid any artwork containing solo figures.
Keeping water features in the bedroom is a major taboo. You should not have images of water – oceans, rivers, beaches or harbors.
