In addition to not sleeping with your head under a window and other feng shui taboos, you should avoid placing your bed in a corner because you or your partner may feel trapped. In other words, this means that both sides of the bed should be easily accessible where you or your partner doesn’t have to climb over another body to get on and off the bed. Place your bed properly to prevent one person from getting the less desirable position. This way, getting out of bed will be less disruptive and conflicts regarding sleep can be completely avoided.
Use the five feng shui elements—Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water—to create balance and vibrant energy in all areas of your home. For example, if you are working on attracting more prosperity, you can introduce the feng shui elements of Wood and Water in the Southeast area of your house. If you need to improve your health, you can place lush plants (representing the Wood feng shui element) or pieces of wood furniture in the East area of your home.
Please see the layout of the new house. My drawing is poor, hope you are able to understand the directions. The utility shelves in the drawing are wall mounted and covers quarter of the wall. Below is the space for washing machine. I am planning to remove the right portion of the shelf and install the Pooja Mantap over there since it is the North east direction. Below the platform there are modular shelves for keeping jars. Below the sink there is a shelf for the pipe, we have kept the dustbin inside the shelf.
You might not realize it, but the energy from the things you store underneath your bed can transfer to you, Cho says. That’s why feng shui practitioners advise clearing out the chaos, so energy can flow easily around you while you’re sleeping. “If those things have or represent active energy, like shoes, books or an exercise mat, you can absorb it on a subconscious level.” If you absolutely have to store things there (hello city living!), Cho recommends limiting them to soft items, like bed sheets, linens and pillows.

Sometimes the simplest tips are the best. Simply clearing your clutter increases your confidence, which in turn gives your success and prosperity a generous boost. Additionally, letting go of what you don’t actually want creates plenty of space for what you do want. In other words, you create an energy vacuum into which wealth and resources instantly and naturally begin to flow. (Overwhelmed? Here are some places to start.)

Feng Shui, literally meaning “wind and water,” is a traditional Chinese concept linking we humans  to our environment.   It’s based on several complex, ancient notions, but in a nutshell, it aims to ensure that people live in harmony with their surroundings.   The Chinese have a deep belief in Ch’i, the animating life force that flows everywhere; it permeates your home, physical surroundings, the rivers roads, trees, and all people.  This hidden force also enters our home  and may be divided into sha (negative) Ch’i or yun (positive) Ch’i.  The purpose of Feng Shui, the “art of placement,” is to enable you to tap the beneficial Ch’i energy to its maximum, in order to disperse, disrupt, or remove obstructions to free the flow of Ch’i.

A Feng shui bedroom layout embraces the primary function of your bedroom, which is to serve such activities as sleep, relaxation and sex. Feng shui bedroom principles incorporate the right elements and furniture placement to enhance your overall health and well-being. These principles ensure the continued flow of chi energy through the balance of yin (female) and yang (male) energies.
If your bedroom is untidy, the flows of energy are going to be slow and weak. Therefore, you need to put everything in order, to allow the energy to circulate unimpeded, so that it can bring all the positive things in your love life. Once you are done cleaning, use a bell or clap your hands to eliminate the stuck energy and to make room for another flow of energy.
That's up to you. Some people love looking outside and seeing life go by; others feel invaded. But if you have a big window opposite the front door, the energy can fly right out the window, so it's good to address that: Use drapes or blinds. Or put something in front of the window, like a plant or a pretty reflective bowl, to bounce energy back into the room.
Today, we are exposed to various feng shui systems and school of thoughts but classical feng shui, the one documented in classical Chinese texts, is divided into just two major systems: the oldest one which focuses on the observation of landforms and environmental features and the youngest one which is primarily based on formulas and takes in consideration that Qi changes over time but it is cyclical so it can be tracked and anticipated.
What if rejuvenating your life was as simple as moving a few things around? According to the ancient Chinese art of feng shui (pronounced "fung shway"), it is. Based on the idea that your living space reflects your life, feng shui strives to achieve balance in both. Feng shui holds that all objects possess an energy called chi, and that you can use this chi to bring luck, wealth, and opportunity into your home. "With feng shui, you don't have to spend 20 years on the couch [with a therapist] to change your life – you just have to move the couch," says Ellen Whitehurst, author of Make This Your Lucky Day: Fun and Easy Secrets and Shortcuts to Success, Romance, Health, and Harmony (Random House, January 2008). Try these ten tips to get that energy flowing.
Small bookshelves are fine. However, if you have bookshelves that are more than six feet (180 cm) tall, then you are better off without the bookshelf. The reason is that the large furniture can give you that invisible pressure that makes you feel oppressed. It’s similar to the feeling you get when you drive right next to a truck or when you’re standing right under a monumental structure.
"Family pictures don't belong in the bedroom," says Whitehurst. "It's the most intimate room in the house and should be reserved for you and your partner." Pictures of children, relatives, and friends may cause you to think about your obligations — and that doesn't allow the mind (or body) to rest. So keep only pictures of you and your spouse or partner in the bedroom, and put other pictures in the dining or family rooms.
To benefit from the auspicious energy brought by this feng shui star here in 2019, focus on expressing an inspiring quality of energy connected to your dreams, mainly career dreams. This is the “specialty” of this star — to support you in achieving your career goals and to give you wings to soar higher than you ever thought possible. You do not have to fill this area with career-related images,  it is your clear intent that really counts. A small career success related photo or any appropriate item for this area will work equally as well as a big one,  what is important is for you to be really inspired by it. As the East feng shui bagua area is connected to the energy of health and family, it is important not to overwhelm this area with career and work-related images. Subtle work is the way to achieve balance and good feng shui in the East area in 2019.
– I have yellowish crystal galloping 5 horses( in an incline up formation) which i bought sometime back however due to mishandling one of the front leg of the horses got broken(half of it). I was thinking of sticking a wooden piece to make for the missing half leg. Should i be looking doing that or shall i discard crystal horses. It is close to 12 – 14 inches in length. If i have to keep horses, which direction would be good for them and which direction they should be facing.
I’ve read conflicting information of the best body alignment during sleep. I would like to start following Feng Shui and am incorporating what I’ve read in my BR layout. How should one align his or her body during sleep? Head facing the North pole (or avoiding that direction)? Also if I “must” have a mirror in the BR, ok to cover it during sleep? Thanks!
An important rule in Feng Shui is that if you can see yourself or any part of your body through a mirror while lying in bed, the mirror needs to be covered up during intimacy and sleeping. Mirrored wardrobe closets, nightstand mirrors, free-standing mirrors and mirrors on the ceiling can cause couples to fight, restless sleep and bring in a third party or affair.
In Feng Shui, we use the “commanding position” to locate important furniture such as your bed. The bed is arguably the most important piece of furniture to put in the commanding position because you spend so many passive hours sleeping! To place your bed in the commanding position, you want to be facing the door while not in line with the door while lying in bed. Ideally you can be diagonally across the room from your bedroom door. However, I understand this is not always possible. In that case, find a mirror and place it so that you can see the door while lying in bed. I suggest freestanding mirrors, as they’re easier to move around and get just right.
If you have anything hanging right above your bed, such as a chandelier, you will get that same feeling of discomfort because you may not feel 100% safe, and the effects are worse if it is hanging right above your head. The cure is to remove that furniture and place it somewhere else, like right above a dining table, where people will not reside right under it.

“Sometimes a very tidy house still has a lot of clutter,” says Lohan. You may put things out of sight and keep the place neatly organized, but you’re still weighed down by a lot of attachment, and that drains your energy. It can be hard to let go of everything that’s holding you back, so take it slow. You don’t have to overhaul your entire home at once. Start with one room or even one box. If you’re having trouble releasing, consider bringing in a family member, a friend or a professional who isn’t as emotionally connected to your things as you are.
Photoreceptors in the retina sense light and dark, and they signal this to our brain to make us aware of the status of the outside world and that we should be wakeful when it is light and restful when it is dark. Our small digital devices emit enough light to miscue our brains into thinking that we need to be awake, therefore it is harder to switch off and get to sleep after watching TV.
One of the best ways to improve work and finances is to move your desk to the command position of the room. The command position is facing the door that opens into your office. Whether your office is strictly at home or you have one at home and in another location, it's important that you move your desk to this position. Make sure that you sit with a solid wall behind you and not a window. A window will not offer you any support in your work or career.
If you look at your bedroom right this moment, what feelings or energies are your bedroom colors expressing? Is it love, happiness, nourishing sensuality, and devotion? Or is it a cold sense of isolation and loneliness? Of course, I am emphasizing here just two ends of a wide spectrum, and there are so many states in between. Learn the feng shui power of color and find out how to choose best, most nourishing colors for your own bedroom.
In a practical world, televisions and laptops are often a necessary evil in your sacred bedroom space. It's impossible to get away from technology, so a compromise solution is to place your TV in an armoire or another cabinet that can be closed when you're finished watching TV for the night. Close your laptop when not being used and store inside a nightstand or drawer. That way, they are at least out of sight and your space while you rest.
Some say that sleeping above the kitchen stove brings bad energy that disturbs sleep and creates health issues. Though I do not disagree with them, what I do know is that your bedroom’s temperature may be higher than normal, caused by the cooking activities and the heat given off from the back of the refrigerator. Because the optimal temperature for sleep is around 65 degrees Fahrenheit, you may be losing on some quality sleep.

Paint the walls of a missing southwest area in any of the earth or fire colors, such as earth tones or fire tones like red, purple, yellow, coral, or orange. However, be mindful to also create an opening, or some perspective, in the wall of the missing or incomplete bagua area. Often this is best done with art containing images of depth or visual pathways.

I decided to implement every single big-payoff tip to see what would happen. I put a cool-looking symbol under my bed that was supposed to bring me a husband (nope), did a ceremonial orange peel water sprinkling around my house to create good fortune (couldn’t tell the difference) and buried coins in rice in a big vase to bring money (also, no dice). I couldn’t understand why this stuff didn’t work for me.
