In Feng Shui, the least desirable bed placement is when the foot of your bed is in a direct line with the doorway. In this position you are vulnerable to any sources of energy that may come rushing in the door.
The best Feng Shui position for your bed is the Command Position, where you can easily see the door but don’t face it directly.
But what if that ideal placement is just not possible?
One solution is to add a footboard to your bed, but footboards aren’t always ideal for a number of reasons: they can make you feel trapped, there may not be enough space to add one, or maybe they’re just not your style.
Since the idea is to give yourself a sense of safety and security while yousleep, here are three ways to give yourself good Feng Shui when you’re in bed:
- Shield yourself by placing a chest filled with heavy blankets at the foot of the bed.
- Place a low screen between your bed and the door.
- I especially love Noren curtains or something similar that shield you while providing a partial view of someone approaching.
What do you think? Do you have a sense of security in your bed?
