Doesn’t this bed look just delicious?
Unfortunately from a Feng Shui perspective there is something very wrong with this bed: the people who share it are symbolically divided from one another.
While the mattress is King-sized, the headboard and box spring are in two separate parts, splitting the bed in half.
The people who sleep here may believe they sleep in one bed, but every night they’re actually separated from one another.
(There’s yet another problem — can you guess it? See *answer below.)
Feng Shui recommends against King-size beds because their box springs usually come in two pieces: they’re actually the box springs for single beds.
The two box springs divide the bed in two, even though there may be a single King-sized mattress on top of them.
In addition, in King beds there’s so much space that togetherness, intimacy and romance can easily get lost.
If you have a King bed, make sure it’s a uniter, not a divider.
Use Feng Shui and the power of your intention to pull your king-sized bed together. This is one of Feng Shui’s most powerful adjustments.
Here’s how to do it:
- Lay a piece of red cloth over the two box springs, out of sight underneath the top mattress. In this way you symbolically connect the two box springs, making a divided bed into one.
- You can also use a red fitted sheet to cover the two box springs, and cover them in turn with a second fitted sheet that matches your usual bedding.
With the box springs connected you can feel confident that you and your partner are sleeping together in the same bed.
*answer: This bedroom reflects an unequal partnership: only one side of the bed has a table and lamp!
