Feng Shui Your Office & Bedroom
From the desk of Kristen Lutz, LCMT ... Humans spend time in space. So why not take notice to the space we inhabit on a daily basis? Feng Shui is an ancient art and science developed thousands of years ago in China. In simple terms, it involves balancing energies of any given space to ensure health and good fortune for those inhabiting the space.
Here are some basic tips on how you can Feng Shui your home office:
1. Have your home office as far from your bedroom as possible.
2. Plan your home office with your success, well-being, and productivity in mind.
3. Be mindful of the quality of air and the quality of light (natural and artificial) in your home office.
4. Position your desk in the so-called feng shui commanding position to attract stronger and more successful energies to your work area. That means your desk should not be in line with a door, but rather as far away from the door and diagonally across the room. Also, do not have your back face the door.
5. Use feng shui to clear clutter and organize your home office.
Here is how you can Feng Shui your bedroom:
Step 1: Pay attention to Feng Shui Bed Guidelines
· Headboard for protection and support made from either solid wood or upholstery
· Good mattress for support and comfort
· Bed just above floor height without built-in storage drawers to allow energy to flow
Step 2: Focus on Bed Placement
· Bed is positioned diagonally from the door, not in line with the door
· Good support wall behind the bed
· Nightstands on both sides for balance
· No sharp angles from wall or furniture corners pointed at you while you sleep
Step 3: Work through Spacial Challenges
· Do not have a mirror that faces the bed
· Nothing heavy or hanging, like a beam or ceiling fan, above your bed
· Bed not positioned under a window
· Have access to your bed from both sides
While we’re on the subject of Feng Shui and energy, did you know that Reiki is a form of energy healing? So while you are harmonizing the energy around you, take time to schedule a Reiki session to balance the energy within. Book online at OMBE.
