Feng Shui: Resting Your Head The Right Way


We spend a good third of our lifetimes in slumber, and if one fails to achieve the daily minimum repeatedly, detrimental effects can follow. Chronic health problems like high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke can develop over time. But what if we maintained disciplined sleeping habits but still can’t get sound sleep?

There is a chance your bedroom may be a little too loud or overly active with Yang, an energy that is typically associated with daily activity. A room that holds too much of this energy creates an imbalance, which results in poor Feng Shui. If you feel that there may be a case of poor energy circulation within your bedroom, here are some ways to invite positivity instead.

Bedroom Placement
Place your bed against a solid wall with the headboard aligned to your favourable Facing Direction. This enables you to receive positive Qi while getting rest. When arranging your bed into position, do not place it between two doors as this would create a continuous flow of Qi, resulting in Sha Qi (杀气). This Sha Qi is a form of negative energy that can bring about negative effects to your sleeping pattern.

If there are windows behind the headboard of the bed, they can cause Yang Qi (陽氣), which we have already established, creates an imbalance. Gushing wind outside these windows are also said to disrupt sleep by coming into contact with one’s head. This position is also considered undesirable as it lacks solid backing. However, this not a major cause for concern as its negative effects can be avoided by hanging thick drapes and keeping the windows closed while you sleep.


Minimising Bed Exposure
It would be advisable to place your bed out of sight from a person who walks into the bedroom through its door. If the bed’s exposure is blocked from view, either fully or partially, it will leave you adequately protected from incoming Qi. If your bed directly faces the bedroom door, with your feet pointing towards the door, it is said that you are sleeping in the ‘coffin position’. This means that Qi entering the room through the door will gravely interrupt sleep.

Move the bed, so as to keep your head or feet from directly facing the bedroom door. Generally, your bed should not be positioned to face any door, including an adjoining bathroom door. If it is difficult to move the bed to a different position, simply cushion incoming Qi by placing a screen between the door and bed.

Shape Of Room And Sorts
A bedroom that is square or rectangular in shape represents the Earth element of stability and thus, is most suitable for activities like sleeping. Avoid sleeping in rooms that are round or triangular, as they do not hold Qi that is balanced. T-shaped rooms are also considered a major red flag as their sharp corners can generate Sha Qi, which can be detrimental to one’s rest.

Most people avoid using L-shaped rooms because they assume that such rooms are knife shaped, and can introduce undesirable cuts into your life. In actual fact, rooms of this nature can cause Qi to become imbalanced, and problems can be further compounded should certain sectors of the Ba Gua be ill present. Sha Qi that is produced by the sharp corners of these L-shaped rooms can be easily rectified by placing oddly-shaped fixtures (wardrobe or dressing table) to give the room a new shape that is ideal for positive energy embrace. Also, be sure to avoid sleeping under beams as it can cause serious sleep disruption and poor performance at work.
