Sometimes, despite all your efforts to create good bedroom Feng Shui, the only location for your bed that makes sense is under a window.
This isn’t ideal because for the best Feng Shui, the head of your bed should be against a solid wall, and your bed in the Command position.
But – surprise! – some bedrooms haven’t been designed with Feng Shui in mind, giving you no choice but to place your bed in a less-than-ideal spot.
This happens for all kinds of reasons — the room may not have been designed as a bedroom originally, or perhaps closets were added as an afterthought…. all you know as the occupant is the importance of good Feng Shui as you sleep.
No matter the circumstances, to operate at your highest level you need to feel safe and protected during the night.
In Feng Shui we stress the importance of sleeping as though there’s a mountain at your back, shielding you from harm and containing your precious, personal Chi energy.
A bed that “must be placed” under a window is a dilemma that’s faced with unfortunate frequency by my clients, so I thought it was time to share the Feng Shui solutions with you, my readers.
When the head of your bed is against a window, you need to take special precautions to prevent your Chi energy from flying away at night.
Here are my top three Feng Shui tips when you have no choice but to place your bed under a window.
- Get a strong, solid headboard for your bed. A Feng-Shui-friendly headboard creates the mountainlike feel you need for a healthy night’s sleep, containing your Chi energy and literally providing a barrier against any negativity that may flow in from outdoors.
- Hang shades on the window that you can easily open and close. The black expanse of uncovered windows at night creates an imbalance of Yin energy. Balance the room and prevent your Chi energy from flying out the window with a good set of shades.
- Also hang curtains that easily open and close. The curtains add a layer of soft, dense warmth, setting the stage for safe and relaxed sleeping.
Nighty-night 🙂 Here’s to good Chi as you sleep!
