7 Things You Must Not See From Bed Facing for Good Feng Shui

If you want to enjoy a good and rejuvenating sleep at night, bedroom Feng Shui plays an important role. The bed is the key to the complete puzzle, and you need to take care of what you should not see from your bed. Its placement and orientation can either improve or disrupt the Chi energy flow. Furthermore, it can cause your health and fortune to deteriorate if not properly handled.

The best location to place a bed for good Feng Shui is the command position. It is the location with a solid wall behind you, allowing you to see who is coming in. However, there are also some things we do not wish to see when lying on the bed. They can drain your energy and create a space that makes it hard to rest, leading to sleepless nights.

1. Sleep With Leg Facing Room Door Is Bad Feng Shui 

It is a well-known Feng Shui taboo to position your bed facing the room door. We called this layout the coffin position, and it is inauspicious with your feet facing the door. It resembles how the people carry the dead bodies through the door. In addition, the rushing Chi will also hit the person on the bed, which can cause sleepless nights and eventually affect your health in the long run.

The best solution is, of course, shifting your bed to another location. However, you can add a footboard to block the gushing energy if the suggested solution is not achievable.

2. Bed Facing a Mirror

You might have heard many people advising against placing your bed facing a mirror. There are many versions of reasoning and belief surrounding this topic.

In the aspect of Feng Shui, some practitioners believe this setup brings a third-party intervention into your relationship. So it is because mirrors double any energy, including romance and love.

Anyone sleeping in such a configuration will have insomnia because it depletes your energy. In addition, the energy bouncing off the mirror disrupts the calm environment that affects your sleep.
There is also a belief that our soul will come out of our body when we sleep. So if the soul gets startled, you might get bad dreams or nightmares.

From the science perspective, reflecting on yourself when waking up might startle you. Moreover, any slight movement reflected in the mirror can distract you from getting a night of good sleep.

3. Bed Facing A Window Create Bad Feng Shui

You should avoid sleeping with your leg facing the windows if the layout configuration or space allows that. The external environmental factors like light, wind etc., coming into the room will disrupt your sleep.

The chilly wind can also cause a person to fall ill easily. However, it does not pose much issue if the distance between the window and the bed is far apart.

If you have no choice due to space constraints, overcome it by using curtains to cover the windows. Alternatively, you can also use a tinted windows sheet to reduce the amount of light shining into the house.

4. Bed Facing Wall Corner Or Sharp Corners of Furniture is Not Beneficial

Watch out for poison arrows directed toward your bed. The wall corners or sharp edges create this killing energy from the furniture in the bedroom is unfavourable for the one sleeping on the bed. Eventually, it can negatively affect your health and love relationship.

The best solution is to shift your bed or furniture to avoid the sharp edge pointing directly towards you. Alternatively, you can cover the sharp edge of the table with a lovely soft drape fabric.

5. No Privacy When Bed Facing House Main Door

This layout is not uncommon for a studio apartment that only has a bedroom where people can see you from the outside. In such a situation, there is no privacy, and you will feel unsecured.

Instead, shift your bed to a position where people cannot see you from the outside. Consider placing a divider screen between the main door and the bed for privacy, if possible.

6. Bed Facing Directly Towards The Bathroom 

The bathroom is a space filled with filth and negative energy, so it is not advisable to place your bed facing it. It can lead to poor health conditions and affect the fortune.

Again, the best solution is to shift the bed to another location. If this is not workable, you can either choose to place a divider in between or cover it with a door curtain. Always keep the bathroom door whenever not in use.

7. Bed Facing TV Harms Your Health and Relationship

Some Feng Shui practitioners advise against having a TV in the bedroom. However, there are a few reasons TV should be out of the bedroom.

Like a mirror, a TV can also reflect and magnify energy that might disturb your sleep quality. Besides that, TV and other electronic devices also emit EMF that can harm one’s health in the long run.

Let’s put Feng Shui aside. But, unfortunately, it also affects your relationship as the program on the TV distracts you from connecting with your loved ones.

If you want a TV in the bedroom, it is good to cover it when not in use. Some people even build a cabinet to conceal the TV inside the door.
