The bedroom and the colour

The bedroom and the colour

Is your bedroom brightly coloured, or is it dark and sombre in the hope of encouraging sleep?
Whilst your bedroom should be a place of calm and help you to relax it does not need to be dark. When you come to re-decorate your bedroom use the #FengShui colour compass to help you to choose the colours to create the calm and relaxing space that you need to encourage you to sleep soundly.

Go out and get fresh air

Go out and get fresh air

“Go out and get some fresh air” is something that you hear quite often when people claim that they are tired. When you want to sleep you can’t go outside for fresh air so the fresh has to come to you. If you can’t sleep with the windows open for good air circulation, then you need to have a system or fan to keep the air moving and fresh. Good air supply really helps you to get a great sleep.

Trouble with sleeping  at night?

Trouble with sleeping at night?

Do you have trouble getting off to sleep at night?
It is important that you are comfortable and #relaxed when you go to bed. Whilst you lie trying to get to sleep many things come into your mind.
What you did that day and what might happen the next are probably at the forefront of your mind to begin with. Then, you may begin to think about your surroundings and the shadows in the room. Is that man over in the corner? No. Just a shadow thrown by an object on the table.
Your choice and placing of the furniture in your bedroom is very important when it comes to being relaxed and getting a good nights sleep every night.

Insomnia Can Ruin Your Day

Insomnia Can Ruin Your Day

A good nights sleep is something that no individual should compromise on. A healthy sleeping pattern is required to have a good routine as a part of your life and to also use your time throughout the day productively. Apart from an unhealthy sleeping pattern, it’s also to address the issue of insomnia. Insomnia can lead to harming your day-to-day activities and eventually leads to long term negative effects as well.

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art which can aid you in getting rid of your insomnia and make a positive change to your bedtime. After all, implementing the art of Feng Shui to the place where you sleep can bring in the positive energies which you’d need to have a good nights sleep.

The following are ways in which Feng Shui can be implemented into your bedroom to ensure a positive flow of energy in the right direction and achieve a positive change in your sleeping pattern:

Choice of Bed

The bed which you sleep on every night has a big influence on a good nights sleep. To avoid insomnia, ensure that you have a bed that is solid wood rather than a metal one. The energy from a wooden bed are far more positive than the ones released from a metal bed.

Placement of Furniture 

If you’ve implemented Feng Shui in your life before, you know one of the most popular tools is a compass. The direction of objects in a room can be determined using this and to improve your sleeping pattern. For example, your bed should not directly be facing a mirror as this depletes good energy. Also, a bed’s headboard should be against a wall, but any other side of your bed should not directly be against a wall. Also, one of the most important aspects to know is that a bed should never be aligned with a door.

Choice of Colors

A Feng Shui color compass can help you derive the energies in your life that may be missing. In this case, if insomnia is a problem, then there are certain colors which must be focused on. For example, focusing on keeping a calm vibe is important. This can be done through colors such as cream/beige and also earthy colors which resemble the calming of nature.

Removing Clutter

A clutter is not just one that’s visible, it also includes the clutter in your closet and the clutter under your bed. Yes, these are all easy ways out to clear a mess that’s visible in your room, but these are terrible for the energy in your bedroom. Relaxation and peace are what you will achieve from clean spaces within your room, which in turn will eliminate the vibes that bring you insomnia.

Fresh Air

Allowing fresh air to move freely in and out of your home is a must. Keeping windows open throughout the day is not possible for all of us since we’re constantly out of our homes. In this case, it’s important to frequently replace air filters within your home and to also keep humidifiers in your rooms. Also, it’s really helpful to keep those curtains open if not the windows, because sunlight is just as important as fresh air!

Minimising on Electronics

Electronics are one thing which are suggested by Feng Shui experts to not keep in your bedroom to ensure a good sleeping pattern. This is not only because they are distracting but also because they add the energy of fire into the room and will give you a tough time when trying to sleep.

These were a few changes you can implement within your bedroom to help with your bedtime and get rid of insomnia.

Feng Shui and the front door

Feng Shui and the front door

The #LuoPan is used to take “readings” and the first such reading is the “front door” reading, which is the one that you need to begin. The front door reading is where the chi enters your home, office or other environment. You will need to have more than one reading as they will all contribute to a more accurate overall reading of your environment.
I write about the Luo Pan compass in my article, https://lnkd.in/dxfb_zN to Read the Luo Pan. Have you taken your first #FengShui reading for your office?

Basics functions of Luo Pan

Basics functions of Luo Pan

The #LuoPan follows the basic functions of a conventional compass in that you can use it to find directions. However, there are many differences between the Luo Pan and a conventional compass such as the number of directional markings. The Luo Pan has 24 different markings whereas a conventional compass has either 4 or 8.
