How to Overcome The Ten Most Common Problems In The Bedroom

June 06, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 275

Of all the questions I am asked as a Feng Shui consultant the most common relate to the bedroom. Of all the rooms in the home this is the one that people seem to find the most challenging when trying to get the energy just right. In this article I explore the ten most common problems I see when assessing people's bedrooms and offer some simple but effective cures that you can use to overcome them.

Bookshelves in the bedroom

Books in the bedroom have the effect of stimulating the mind preventing the occupants from getting a restful night's sleep. The best cure is to remove the bookshelves but if this is not practical in your home then it is just as effective to cover the bookshelves with cupboard doors or fabric to hide the books while you sleep.

A sleigh bed

I have to say that a wooden sleigh bed makes a beautiful and stylish addition to a bedroom but it does unfortunately come with it's own problems. In a sleigh bed the head and the foot of the bed curve inwards pressing energy down on you while you sleep. To overcome this you need to look for a way of raising the energy upwards again an effect that can easily be achieved by placing a small crystal or a stylish light fitting above the bed.

A bed that is too low to the ground.

If your bed is too low to the ground then energy cannot flow underneath. Beds ideally should have plenty of space between the mattress and the floor. If you don't want to buy a new bed then place a red square of material the size of the mattress underneath the bed to stimulate energy.

Beams above the bed

Beams above the bed have the effect of pressing energy downwards while you sleep. Many people find that where a beam crosses their body when the sleep they often experience problems in that area of their body. The best cure is to hide the beams with a false ceiling but if you are unable to do this then place two bamboo flutes above the bed so that they cross over the beam. Like crystals bamboo flutes have the effect of raising energy upwards.

Sloping Ceilings

In France where I live many old houses were originally one storey with large attic spaces. As these have been renovated the attic spaces have been converted in to bedrooms with large sloping ceilings. Sleeping under a sloping ceiling can cause worries and a feeling of oppression while the occupant sleeps. To overcome this hang a crystal above the bed to lighten the energy around the bed.

Clutter under the bed

Clutter underneath the bed whether it is boxes, packing cases or drawers has the effect of blocking energy from flowing beneath. There is really only one cure for this, take them out and place them somewhere else

Mirrored wardrobes

Too many mirrors in the bedroom speed up the flow of energy, disrupting natural sleeping patterns. The best cure is to replace these with wooden wardrobe doors but if you prefer not to do this find a way of covering them with fabric while you sleep. Voile can be bought very cheaply and, draped over wardrobe doors during the night, can look very stylish creating a sensual and romantic feel to the room.

A metal bed

Metal beds are very popular but metal bed frames, or even just a metal headboard, can disrupt the natural flow of energy. To calm the flow of energy down cover the metal frame or headboard with a soft fabric.

An en-suite bathroom

It is so difficult to get the balance right in modern homes as people today expect an en-suite bathroom. In our own home in France we created all of our guest bedrooms with en-suites as we felt that it was what people would expect when they came to stay. En-suite bathrooms however can cause a disrupted night's sleep unless you adhere to good bathroom management. This means that you keep the bathroom clean, tidy and in good repair and you keep the bathroom door closed at night.

A TV or computer in the room

The most common problem of all, a TV or computer in the bedroom disrupts the natural flow of energy around the bedroom. The best cure is of course to remove them and place them elsewhere but rooms today have multiple uses and this not always possible. If you need to keep a TV or computer in the bedroom then place them in wooden units that can be closed at night or cover them with a cloth or blanket before you go to sleep.
