Would you like to increase your luck this year? Be a little healthier? Even sleep better? If you answered yes, yes and yes, then read on and discover a few Feng Shui rules that might just help you get your year off to a flying start.
So what is Feng Shui?
Feng Shui is an ancient, deeply believed discipline of Chinese origin, and means, air (feng) and water (shui). Pronounced: ‘fung shway’, it’s based on the movement of ‘chi’ which is an ever present energy moving from one place to another.
Now we’re not going to get too deeply into it, because it’s a big subject, but instead we’re going to give you a few tips and pointers in two parts to get you started. Here we go …
How to Feng Shui Your Bedroom- Part One
✤ As a general rule what you should be aiming for in your bedroom is a clutter-free zone.
✤ Always buy the best bedding you can afford, the more luxurious the better. No mis-matched sets. No sheets with holes in. Aim for crisp, cotton linens (the higher the thread count, the better) beautifully matched, and you’ll feel like royalty.
✤ Pillows – Take the pillow test – Rest the centre of your pillows over your forearm. If the pillow stays pretty much horizontal, it’s passed the test. But if it flops over like a Basset Hound’s ear, then it’s time to replace. Why? Old pillows harbour ‘old energy’ not just dust mites. By ‘old energy’ we mean things like, if you’ve recently been ill, or if you’ve been particularly down, unhappy and feeling a bit negative, this is ‘old energy’. So get rid of those pillows today,start afresh, and see the difference it can make to your sleep.
✤ Lamps – Place identical lamps on either side of the bed. Why? This represents equality. Choose tall and elegant lamps over 28 inches high if you want to be able to see all of your bedroom in one go. Keep lamp cords at least 30 inches away from where you rest your head. Why? To stop electro-magnetic fields disturbing your sleep. Tip. Lamps placed in the corners of your bedroom, shine light upwards and create lovely ‘chi’ energy, perfect for a great night’s sleep.
