SEVEN VASTU TIPS FOR THE BEDROOM

Vastu Shastra, the sacred science from India that creates harmonious

stress-free living and working environments, supports your success in

all areas of life, even in the bedroom! Something everyone has in common

is sleeping. It takes up approximately one third of your life and therefore

is an extremely important factor in your overall health.

Here are some wonderful ideas to improve the bedroom, a place where

we spend more time than in any other room of the place we call home.

1. The door you enter to your bedroom is considered a symbol of the possibilities

your life has to offer you and should open at least ninety degrees to fully

allow positive opportunities to flow to you. A door that cannot open fully will limit

this support that makes your life more interesting.

2. Upon entering, your bedroom, the first thing you see is something that

gives you the feeling of peace and serenity. This could be a photograph,

a favorite quote, a painting or sculpture, even flowers will enhance these positive,

life supporting feelings.

3.  Removing clutter in your bedroom creates serenity and will help you feel

more efficient and function optimally. Clutter, especially under your bed,

weighs you down and keeps your mind subtly connected to the past, which does

not allow for forward progress. Clutter represents all that has not been

completed in your life. Wherever it exists, your life force energy (prana) becomes stagnant.

To tackle clutter, first take on small projects to help you avoid the feelings

of being overwhelmed be the task at hand. Clear areas of accumulated papers,

magazines, and newspapers to help you create a sense of organization and space.

Begin with drawers and, as you feel inspired, focus on sections of your closet or

storage areas. Remove everything from under your bed, as storing clutter

here will also affect your subconscious mind and cause disruption during sleep.

4. Sleep with your head to the south. Positive magnetic energy comes from the north.

The blood in your body contains iron, making your body magnetic with the

positive polarity in your head. When you sleep with your head to the north,

these two positive polarities repel each other, disrupting the flow of blood and affecting

your sleep and health.

5. Having a mirror on the wall opposite the foot of your bed can disturb your sleep.

You throw off stress during the time you sleep and a mirror will hold the stress

and reflect it back to you when you wake up once you sit up in bed.

Move the mirror or cover it at night for more restful and replenishing sleep.

6. Try not to sleep in direct alignment with sharp corners.

Sharp corners act as energy spears and create stress in the nervous system.

There is not serenity in a room that has sharp corners except by softening them

by placing plants in front of them. You can also try moving your bed away from

direct alignment with them.

7. Exposed beams or slanted ceilings are symbols of oppression as they create a

cutting effect. If your bed is directly underneath an exposed beam or in a slanted room,

it will be difficult to have peaceful rest with this energy looming above you.

One remedy for “lifting” this effect energetically is to hang bells from beams or slanted

ceilings.
