Your bedroom is the most important room in Feng Shui.
Because we spend more time there than any other room in the house.
Also, because, from a symbolic aspect, your bedroom represents your personality and relationships.
(But there’s a whole other article about how each room influences our life.)
So if the bedroom is so important…
How can you Feng Shui your bedroom for better health and sleep?
In this article, you’ll discover 3 easy Feng Shui principles guaranteed to help you enjoy good sleep and better health.
#1. Keep Your Bed Parallel
This is key to your health…
Did you know…
Roads are huge bodies of solid rock-like material, floating on shifting soil that:
- Carry subtle vibrations caused by the movement of cars.
- Affect wind patterns due to their thermal properties.
- Disrupt the earth’s magnetic forces.
All of these wave-like energies emanate from both sides of any road, affecting the houses (ad the people) alongside them.
How does this connect with you and me?
While we sleep, our bodies release electromagnetic energy and heat, which emanates from the two natural poles of our body, our head, and feet.
The release of energy and heat allows our bodies to let go of pent-up electromagnetic energy collected during the day.
But when a bed’s head is facing the road, the subtle energies emitted from our bodies, directly collide with magnetic and seismic energy emitted from the front road.
A rebounding effect, forcing the energy released from our head back to our body.
Prolonged exposure leads to frequent headaches, shoulder and neck problems, poor sleep quality and general restlessness.
(Where’s your bed head facing?)
When the foot of a bed faces the road, the energies from your feet collide with that from the road, which affects your lower body.
People with their bed’s foot facing the road will suffer from problems with their lower joints, knees
To fix this bedroom Feng Shui problem:
Make sure that your bed is parallel to the road in front of your house. The allows the energy from the road to interact with your body from the side, allowing it to “roll” over you.
The release of energy from your feet and

#2. Get Rid of EM Radiation
Electricity is everywhere these days…
And, it doesn’t stay contained within the appliances which use it…
In fact, electromagnetic energy leaks into its environment from all electrical devices.
Our bodies were not designed to be bombarded by these constant electrical influences, right?.
Especially not for extended continuous periods, such as when we sleep.
Even when a TV has been off for hours, it still releases certain levels of electromagnetic energy.
When the TV is too close to the bed:
This electromagnetic field interferes with your body’s nervous system. Especially when the TV is at the foot or the head of your bed.
This can have disastrous effects on your health.
If you have a TV at the foot or the head of your bed…
…over time, you will start to experience health problems associated with nerve damage in either the lower or upper body (depending on the TV’s location).
If you talk to most people with a TV at the foot of their bed:
They’ll admit to having back problem or problems with the nerves in their legs.
On a side note, and purely from a muscular perspective, if you watch a TV at the end of your bed while lying in bed, you’ll likely experience long-term damage to your neck and shoulders by the way you sit up to watch it.
#3. Keep Books & Bears Out of the Bedroom.
I know… right? 🙁 …
People love collecting books and stuffed toys in their bedrooms.
But both ignite allergies and deteriorate overall health.
Carried in by the wind or produced in our homes, dust is made of many things; sand, dirt, pollen, or even mold and fungi.
If too much of this dust collects around us, it leads to serious health problems.
In the short term:
Dust ignites allergy weaknesses and weakens the immune system.
But, in the long-term…
Continuous inhalation of high concentrations of dust can lead to lower lung efficiency – and heart problems!
You’re not going to like this, but…
Our beloved books and stuffed toys collect a lot of dust.
that’s why it’s bad bedroom Feng Shui to have clutter, especially books, and plush toys in your bedroom.
BUT before you throw out Mr snuggles and your favorite book…
It’s Ok, to have one book or teddy. The point is to keep it to a minimum.
If you’re a serious teddy enthusiast love to fill your room with books, it’s time to let them sleep somewhere else.

Hello Mentor Aur and Vick,
My family and I live in an apartment. The property/building entrance differs from that of the entrance to the apartment. What’s more, we’re on a corner. The road on which the property door is located turns into the second road our apartment sits upon. It is not a T intersection but rather, a curve, with the one leading into the next. Traffic flow is against our own foot traffic to arrive home.
So am I to use the building entrance, which again is located on a road that then curves, and not the apartment entrance when calculating my home’s influences? Also, our bedrooms are located on the second road (once it has curved and become the non-main road.) So our bed is perpendicular to the property entrance road, but parallel to the one it’s closest to and really just above. Am I still to use the property entrance as my “north,” so to speak?
Thanks for your help, hope I’ve been able to paint a clear enough picture; this is confusing! I was hoping I’d be able to extract these answers from your book but am still confused.
Also, I saw at some point a suggested filing system for the office but am unable to locate it again. May I please have the break down of the agrouped letters for efficient filing?
Thank you, all the best
Thank you for your comment. Great question. Yes, you use the front entrance of the building to calculate the Feng Shui grid. There’s always only one direction to use so please do not confuse them. Always start from the building’s front. About the office tips, here’s our post on that. https://aurtalks.com/feng-shui-office-tips/. Ps. We’ll also have an online course soon about the 9 areas of influence. I can keep you updated about that.
Hello, I wanted to know if Aur does online courses? I live in the USA and like to get certified in Feng Shui. Thank you.
Hi Courtney. Thank you so much for commenting. Aur will certainly have classes up this year. However, they are not done yet. Ps. We do have a book available which has all the basics you’d need to at least know everything about a person’s personality from their home. It’s at : https://amzn.to/2n5BgWD
If you do decide to study with someone in the meanwhile may I please suggest something?
Whoever you learn with, make sure things make absolute sense. Question everything down to the detail. For example, if they say “good chi” ask them what chi is, how it will specifically affect your life such as communication, will there be tension etc. It’s difficult to find REAL knowledge at the moment unfortunately.
