Have you ever walked into a room and just felt plain old yucky when you entered it? You probably blamed it on the fact that it was too dark, bright, smelly, uncomfortable, stark, cluttered, hot, cold or just weird. Well, all those things contribute to whether a space has good energy or not. We want good energy. Too many things are just draining the heck out of our energy so for crying out loud our own house should NOT.
Feng Shui is basically how energy flows in your space. It is an ancient art and science that is thousands of years old. The idea behind it for our purposes is we want optimal health and good fortune in the spaces we occupy–and applying Feng Shui practices can make this happen.
So today we are going to talk about where our beds and where our desks should be positioned–for the best energy or optimal Feng Shui.
The Feng Shui commanding position in any room is the spot that is furthest from the door and not in the direct line with it.
It is usually diagonally from the door and facing the door. Usually this means a corner opposite the entrance to the room.
Another important part is you need to have a solid back to the area behind your bed or desk–so a window is bad. You don’t want to feel vulnerable, you want a solid grounded background behind you and a good view of the door.
This sounds like common sense but until you read it you don’t realize how true this is. If your bed looks good on a different wall backed by windows looking into the hallway then you probably are going to “blow this off”. Until you go to bed tonight and think maybe this is why I always feel anxious, or have to triple check the locks on the door, or have trouble falling asleep—maybe it’s just bad energy.
I’m all about good energy, even if it means rearranging my room for the 300th time.
