Advice for creating a harmonious sleeping space

Here are some tips to help you create the right ambience for a good night’s sleep.

Principles for achieving a favorable bed position

According to the principle of commanding position, a bed should face a door. This helps a person feel secure, and allows them to rest their mind and survival mechanisms, which are active 24 hours a day. Avoid placing your bed against a wall, unless you plan to put a mirror over it. Alternatively, you can put a mirror behind or above the bed. The footboard is an exception to this rule.

In Feng Shui, a bed is placed in a commanding position. This means it’s placed in such a way that it’s visible from lying down. Unlike other aspects of Feng Shui, a commanding bed position does not have to face a door directly. In fact, a good rule of thumb is to place it diagonally to a door. However, you should not place it in a position that will block your view of the door.

Avoiding placing your bed between a window and a door

You may be struggling to find the right place for your bed. In fact, in feng shui, placing your bed between a door and a window is considered bad luck. The dead man’s position is the most common example of this. In this position, your feet face the door and your body resembles the dead being carried through an open door. This is why it is best to avoid placing your bed between a door and a window.

One way to avoid placing your bed between a door and a window is to use a floatboard. If your bedroom does not have one, you can place a low screen between your bed and door. In addition, you can place heavy blankets at the end of your bed. If you do not have a floatboard or a low screen between a door and a window, you can use other Feng Shui strategies. In general, you should place your bed in the west, where it receives the most positive energy.

Avoiding placing a mirror on either side of your bed

While you’re in bed, avoid placing a mirror on either side of your head. It bounces energies around your room, causing restlessness and intensifying your worries. If you’re worried about attracting attention, place a full-length mirror inside a closet door and close it when you’re finished using it. Also, avoid placing a mirror on either side of the door that faces the north or the east, as these directions reflect positive energies away.

Another tip for avoiding a mirror on either side of your bed is to place it directly on the wall opposite the bed. Place it where there’s no direct light, so it won’t be in your face and will not reflect your room’s other items. You can also place it near a window, which will give off less glare. In addition, if you want to place a mirror on the wall beside your bed, you should place it near a window.
