The 3 important R’s in the bedroom are Romance, Rest and Recharge. Any bedroom Feng Shui that helps improve sleep is a necessary foundation for improved romance in the bedroom.
Place Your Bed Properly
Feng Shui is the 5,000 year old art of placement. Since it’s been proven that everything is ultimately energy, it makes sense that where you position your bed is very important. It should be placed relative to the door. The bed should be positioned where it allows the sleeper the widest possible scope of the room. A restricted range of sight within the room can restrict the sleeper’s Chi and their life vision. The larger the space in front of your bed, the more your life expands, breathes, and improves. It’s also important to not sleep with your head under a window.
You should avoid placing your bed in a corner because you or your partner may feel trapped. This means that both sides of the bed should be easily accessible where you or your partner doesn’t have to climb over another body to get on and off the bed. Place your bed properly to prevent one person from getting the less desirable position. If it’s possible, move your bed so that both sides are at an equal distance from the walls. If one side of the bed is touching the wall, the person who is sleeping facing the wall could feel deprived of freedom, restricted or stuck in the relationship.
Visibility of the Bedroom Door
You should clearly see the bedroom door from the bed. Not seeing who is approaching can keep you uncertain and on edge. Even if you think that you’re accustomed to not seeing the door, you can still likely experience ongoing subconscious stress, which can create imbalance and frustration. If your bed position doesn’t allow you to see the door and you can’t move the bed, you can place a sizable mirror opposite the bed that allows you to easily see the door. If you need to angle the mirror to show the door, use a standing mirror angled to the appropriate position. The direct line from the door to the bed should not sit in the direct line of the path of the doorway. If your bed does sit in the direct line of the door, the Chi of the door runs directly and too powerfully up the middle of the bed. This factor can create diseases along the midline of the body. Seeing the door to your bedroom symbolizes that you know what life is bringing and feel prepared to deal with whatever comes. You’re in command, and the results manifest positively in many areas of your life.
A Solid Headboard
A good solid wooden headboard is recommended for your sleep quality because it gives you a subtle sense of security. Metal headboards are not recommended. Scientific studies have concluded poor sleep quality can be detrimental to your mental and physical health, including the sex drive.
Creating a Loving Environment in the Bedroom
Remove past relationship photos and mementos from the bedroom (and from your home), no matter how romantic or nostalgic you are. Eliminate the old to bring in the new. If you have pictures or other physical reminiscence of a relationship hanging around, then they’re still there! Don’t keep objects that remind you of failed relationships. Make sure that you have new sheets, too, to sleep on. Old energy can linger in the bed as well.
Keep the TV out of the bedroom
Any electronic equipment should be placed in the office or other area of the home. A TV in the bedroom is not conducive to romance. The bedroom is for loving, not working. Don’t mix work or play. Purge the room of all work-related materials that distract you. No exercise equipment in the bedroom, it makes your relationship exhausting. The effort you put when exercising will be transposed in your love life. And certainly, you don’t want your relationship to feel like a sustained effort.
Do not keep your altar in your bedroom
it is said to be disrespectful. No spiritual pursuit or spiritual deities, it prevents relationship and intimacy.
If mirrors in the bedroom are facing the bed, relocate them because it reflects the couple on the bed. Some believe that this will cause a failure in the relationship because of the entry of a third party.
In addition to the above:
Have things in pairs because it promotes feelings of equality.
Mismatched night tables create an imbalance in the relationship. Replace them with a set to encourage equality in your relationship.
Having a pair of matching lamps show you want to share your life and home with your loved one.
Do not have just a single chair in the bedroom; have a pair of chairs.
The images and objects surrounding you affect your life more than you could ever imagine. Check the statues and art in your bedroom and Remove the paintings, sculptures or photos representing negative situations, loneliness, sadness, war, fight etc . They can bring upon you negative energies and create a tense atmosphere in your love life when, alternatively, the bedroom should be peaceful and safe for those who sleep there. You can replace them with a painting of peony flowers or love birds as these represents love.
Do not display family and children’s photos in the bedroom
This is said to hinder your sex life. Put such photos in the living or family room where they belong.
Adjust light levels in your bedroom
Having a dimmer can help keep the light levels balance. This is very important, as light is one of the most powerful manifestations of energy. Toxin free candles are recommended as the best option for bedroom lighting.
Set the mood. The mood in the bedroom is important, e.g., light scented candles, drape sheer fabrics or lace over lamps. Keep lighting soft. Play romantic music. Place “happy” photos of you and your partner on the dresser.
The bedroom should be well-ventilated
This is beneficial in moving old energy out of the room. Keep all doors closed during night. It might be your bedroom door, the door of your closet, your bathroom door, etc. This will ensure the optimum flow of nourishing and healing energy and will improve your health and strengthen your relationship.
The size of your bed matters
If you are single, a single mattress is not a good idea. In addition, sleeping on either a king size or single mattress doesn’t encourage romance. Sleeping on a huge mattress does not encourage intimacy. Invest in a full size or a queen. Store nothing under the bed, and keep it clean. Storing items under your bed affects your sleep. This kind of mundane imagery is not conducive to rest or romance. Think of sensual, soft, bedding when selecting pillows, sheets and comforters. Any type of bedding that creates a cozy environment is great for the bedroom.
Rose quartz or green quartz is recommended
Rose quartz is the most desirable of all quartz and is associated with love, romance and relationships. Buy chunks of rose quartz, rose quartz hearts, and also rose quartz lamps to place in your bedroom. Always have the rose quartz in pairs. Widely known as the “Love Stone”, rose quartz is most favored for its ability in speeding up the process for those seeking true love, mending broken relationships and jazzing up your existing romance life.
Add a statue or picture of Ganesh outside the bedroom door to remove any obstacles to partnership/romance. Add a picture or statue of Kwan Yin, the Goddess of love and compassion, as you enter the bedroom. Do not have her facing the bed.
Remove anything fragile
If anything in your room triggers anxiety or feeling of clumsiness, change your bedroom decor. There should be nothing in your bedroom that contributes to stress.
