A Feng Shui Expert’s Advice on Your Bedroom

It's not just about the feng shui of your bedroom; it's also about the feng shui of your bed! According to feng shui principles, the placement of your bed and other furniture in a room can greatly impact your wellbeing. 

Want to live a healthy and prosperous life? Then it's important to create a harmonious environment in your bedroom. 

One of the main reasons to feng shui your bedroom is to create a space that is conducive to relaxation. By keeping the energy in your bedroom flowing freely (and of course, using the right sleeping system), you can enjoy better sleep and improved health. In addition, feng shui can also be used to attract love and romance into your life. 

If you're looking for ways to improve your relationship or want to get some quality shut-eye, consider giving your bedroom a feng shui makeover.

Let’s learn more about what feng shui is and how to amp up your bedroom environment for optimal sleep.

What Is Feng Shui?

If you haven't heard of feng shui yet, then let us share a little bit about where this practice comes from. Feng shui (pronounced fung-shway) originated in China and can be described as the art of placement. This technique has been around for centuries but was not introduced outside of China until towards the end of the 20th century. 

Utilizing this ancient Chinese practice is meant to align living spaces with universal forces. It aims to create harmonious environments that allow us to flourish in all areas of our lives, including health, relationships, money, and success. The theory concludes that achieving harmony and balance within the environment is all about energy flow. 

Understanding how to use feng shui knowledge will create a more favorable environment for yourself. Feng shui focuses on how to arrange your home for optimum health, happiness, and prosperity. 

If you want to know what feng shui has to do with your bedroom, SONU Sleep has all the information you need.

Wait, What Is Chi?

Wait, what is chi in feng shui? It's about feeling your space. You can use many things to enhance that feeling, such as minimalist decor pieces, plants, flowers, incense sticks, or oils. 

How do you know if it's working? Check out these signs: 

  • Your body feels balanced when standing or sitting at home. 
  • Your home feels comfortable and welcoming, not sterile or overly decorated.
  • You feel energized when you wake up in the morning or come home from work. 
  • You feel relaxed while reading, eating, cooking, or working from home.
  • The energy around you feels positive and optimistic. 

Feng shui is a fun and creative way to create an atmosphere that makes you feel happy and at peace with your life. It's about finding a balance between all aspects of your life and taking the time to enjoy your surroundings. 

So, take a little time to experiment with feng shui in your bedroom and see what works best for you.

How Can You Apply Feng Shui?

Your bedroom should be a place where you feel supported and comfortable. Every feng shui practitioner has their ideas about creating a harmonious environment where they sleep. So take some time to think about what matters most to you before arranging your furniture.

While designing your dream bedroom, keep in mind that feng shui is all about creating an environment that supports you in achieving your goals and dreams. Your bedroom should be a sanctuary of peace and tranquility, where you can go to relax after a long day.

Look at the following tips and see what you can start aligning to transform your space into a haven of peace and productivity. 

Remove Clutter

You can start by removing all clutter from your bedroom. This includes clothes and books. Try to match the colors of your room with the color scheme of the rest of your house. This will make it seem like you're not in a different world when you enter different areas.

Keep your bedroom clutter-free to promote relaxation and peace. Make sure you have plenty of storage space for clothes, shoes, books, etc. Hang up pictures of your family, friends, or favorite things in the room to make it feel more personal. 

If you're looking for another way to improve your bedroom feng shui, try removing any electronic devices from the space. Phones, tablets, laptops, and other devices are all emitting electromagnetic frequencies. This can interfere with the energy around you and in your home. Keep your bedroom electronics-free to promote a more restful night's sleep.

Introducing Fresh Air

During warmer months, open the windows for fresh air and natural lighting. You can also add plants, candles, or diffusers for soothing smells and the atmosphere. Adding a small water fountain is also an excellent way to apply feng shui to a space as well.

It's All About Location

One of the most important aspects of feng shui is the location of your bed. The headboard of your bed should be facing a door or window. This allows Chi (or life force energy) to flow freely into and out of the room.

Your SONU Sleep System should be placed in a quiet corner, away from any potential sources of disturbance such as televisions or kitchen appliances.  

You want to also avoid having things directly behind or opposite your bed as this can create stressful energy flow. In addition, you should avoid placing mirrors near the headboard since they attract too much attention and distract from sleep. 

A feng shui bedroom should be a place where you feel comfortable and supported. You can create an environment conducive to relaxation and good health by following these tips.

Placing Mirrors Next to Windows

If you're looking to improve the flow of Chi in your bedroom, consider placing mirrors next to windows. This will help reflect the energy into the space and create a more positive environment. 

Another option is placing a mirror on the wall across from your bed as well. Many have found that it not only enhances the application of feng shui. But also is an aid for better sleep.

Use Colors that Promote Positivity

When decorating your bedroom according to feng shui, always keep the principle of balance in mind. Try not to overcrowd your space with too many colors or accessories. Make sure everything in your room has a purpose.

Choosing light or pastel colors for your walls will create a sense of spaciousness. Help create an even more calming atmosphere by using different colors in each corner of the room—for example, a blue accessory at one corner for peace. 

Place a red accent color at another corner for passion. Place a green color element at another corner of the bedroom for growth. Fold in yellow at the last corner for success. 

Hang Crystals or Wind Chimes

When it comes to feng shui, many people think of the furniture placement in a room first. But there are other things you can do to help bring good energy into your bedroom and promote sound sleep. One such suggestion is to hang crystals or wind chimes above your bed to promote good health and wellbeing.

The idea behind this is that the movement of the crystals or chimes will help break up stagnant energy. This will help create a more positive energy flow in the room. Such a simple fix, but this can go a long way in helping you get a better nights sleep, leaving you feelingl more refreshed in the morning.

How About a Fish Tank?

Adding a fish tank to your bedroom is a great feng shui option. Not only do fish tanks make great additions, but having an aquarium is beneficial for you too. Fish tanks have also been found by NASA scientists to relieve stress and anxiety, which is perfect for getting rid of those bedtime stress.

Is Your Bed Positioned Correctly?

The bed should be placed in the "commanding position." This placement is against a solid wall, with the headboard facing the door (or window). It is believed that Chi follows the path of least resistance. 

If you place your bed in front of a doorway (instead of facing it), this will block any positive energy coming into the room. Additionally, use a low bed to create an air of relaxation. This further promotes good energy flow and more restful sleep. 

Crystals, Plants, and Natural Light

Make sure that there is plenty of natural light coming into the room. This can be from windows or skylights. And doing so will ensure you don't have trouble sleeping during the winter months. 

Get rid of negative energy by using crystals or plants. A great addition to any bedroom, plants can add color and life. Using plants also helps create a sense of nature and freshness in the room. Placing plants and fresh flowers on your nightstand is also excellent feng shui for good luck. 

You can also lay down a rug or carpet in front of your bed to create a soft place to walk into the room. All of these elements help create a welcoming and restful environment.

Positive Affirmations and Daily Routines

When you're in bed, use positive affirmations to help promote good sleep habits. Repeating phrases such as "I am going to get a good night's sleep" or "I will wake up feeling refreshed and energetic" can help.

You can also combine this with the use of other feng shui techniques to improve your bedroom's energy flow. Plus, one of the best ways to create good sleep habits is to get into the routine of going to bed and waking up at the same time each day. This will help regulate your body's natural clock. 

If you have trouble sleeping, try some relaxation techniques before bedtime. Things like deep breathing or visualization are excellent examples. And finally, make sure your bedroom is dark, quiet, and cool. These are all conditions that are conducive to good sleep.

So I actually own one of these. It's AMAZING. Yes it will take you a few weeks to get "used" to it... But that said, you will be AMAZED at how great your shoulders feel in the morning. Just unreal. Like sleep a full 8 hours without waking up type of sleep.

Highly recommended!
I’m a side sleeper and I used to wake up with a dead feeling arm from lying on it all night. Finally a mattress with a pocket for my arm. I tried all the pillows and even very expensive mattresses in the past, but nothing cured my circulation problems until I got the sonu sleep mattress. I love it!
