How To Feng Shui Your Room ?
Your room is your personal space where you sleep, relax, revitalize, read, and romance. To cater to all these moods and to help you recharge your positive energy (Chi), the bedroom should be designed and decorated to create a calm, relaxed, or Yin environment. As per the traditional Chinese Ying/Yang principle, use of more Yin elements in the room will not only make you feel secure and relaxed, but will also keep away the negative chi from the room.
When decorating your bedroom as per the Feng Shui principles, use the traditional Five-Animal template to determine the most harmonious arrangement, as described below.
The Tiger:It is stooped at your right and low to the ground, and is indicative of our willingness to jump back to action or work, when in a vulnerable state. To bring in the effect of the tiger, position a low table or a small elevated nightstand to the right of your bed.
The Dragon: The dragon is placed at an elevated position, and it is representative of our astuteness and capability to reflect upon the available information. Thus, place all the tall items, such as a huge shelf or a dresser, to your left.
The Phoenix: It signifies ourapparition, dreams, and motivation. The fact that the phoenix needs a lot of space to reach out far ahead implies that the area around the foot of the bed should be kept clear and clutter free.
The Tortoise: It is a symbol of firmness, security and protection at the back. This implies that the head of the bed should be against a wall.
The Snake: It is positioned in the center of the room and refers to you and your bed. This signifies that the bed is the focal point of the room and should be placed in a position from where you can view the room door clearly. Also, avoid positioning the bed right under the window or just next to it. Placing it against the wall opposite to the entrance door is also not a good idea. The key is that you should be able to have a clear view of the door without blocking the path of the incoming positive Chi. The lightings should not be directly over the bed as they tend to create a downward pressure on the otherwise normal flow of energy, thereby leading to an undue pressure on your head and chest. Last, but not the least, do not put a mirror opposite the door as it tends to reflect the incoming energy.
To Feng Shui your room, all you need to do is use your own creativity to maintain balance and harmony between the five elements, directions, and the colors. As each room is distinct in character, there are no pre-defined rules that should be followed when using the principles of Feng Shui.
