Hello and Happy Valentine's day. Did you know that your Love/Relationship Gua governs the head Woman of the home. Yep, it does! That means, that not only does it promote energy that sustains love and relationship, it also has the ability to support the head woman overall in life.
In case you were wondering, the head male is over in the Helpful People and Travel gua but that's another topic for another day.
Your bedroom is all about love and according to Feng Shui principles the bed affects many area of your life; your health, your energy level and of course your love life. Yet many people sleep on an old and uncomfortable mattress because they either feel that it's not important enough to buy a new mattress or because it's the last on the priority list of things that they need to buy this year. Believe me, the benefits outweigh the cost every time.
If you've recently had a break up from a long term relationship, it's important to replace your mattress with a new one. You'll be clearing out the old energy from that relationship to make room for someone new in your life.
Size does matter...yes I am talking about the mattress size. LOL When you buy a new mattress the size is very important in Feng Shui. They say that a queen size is the perfect size for a couple. A twin or full size are too small for a couple to share and it's leaning towards you thinking that you may want to be single. Your thoughts when buying a new mattress should be of you being in a relationship.
In Feng Shui they believe that a king size bed can contribute to a break up because a king size bed is made of two twin box springs and this can create a divide between a couple (Cure -add a king size flat or fitted sheet to the box springs and visualize the gap between the box springs joining together).
The Do's and Don'ts for your Bed and your love life
-Buy a wooden bed with a solid headboard
-Buy a really good mattress without metal springs in it, if possible. (replace your mattress every 8-10 years)
-Place your bed in the Power Position which would be against a solid wall furthest from the door with a view of the door. In this position you will rest easier because you will feel more secure while lying in bed.
-Position mirrors so that you cannot see yourself when lying down in bed.
-Have a matching side table on each side of the bed with lamps to create a balanced and secure relationship.
-Paint the room romantic pastel colors...nothing too bold or bright in this room
-Put in a dimmer switch to soften the lighting which will add a romantic feel to the room
-Have a cluttered bedroom - you want a romantic feel to your bedroom not a reminder of things that need to be done
-Have too many books in the bedroom it's not a library
-Place a workstation in your bedroom. Avoid work or work related objects, anything that represents work. Ideally, bedrooms should be a place for rest and love. Having too many electronics in the bedroom is a Feng Shui NO NO as it makes it much harder to relax and sleep because of the EMF's which can create a lot of pollution in your bedroom. Keep electrical electromagnetic radiation to a minimum and switch them off for the night if at all possible.
-Have beams, sloping ceilings, ceiling fans and cupboards above the bed. All these things will create an uneasy feeling because subconsciously we feel unsafe when things are hanging over our heads. (Cure - Hang a crystal from the Ceiling fan, for the beans and sloping ceiling - place small mirrors on top of furniture to reflex the beam and slope away)
-Hang pictures of family members in your bedroom, again this room is about you and your significant other no one else.
