    Having battled with sleep problems over the last few weeks (which is having a knock-on effect on other areas of my life), I have decided to try some new options :) Have booked acupuncture for tomorrow, and also decided to redecorate my bedroom into a haven in which I cannot resist relaxation.
    I feel that for some reason when we were decorating our new home on a limited budget, myself and my boyfriend neglected the bedroom and it just doesn't feel like a sacred relationship space to me, which is now being reflected in our relationship.

    Anyone got some feng shui or colour therapy or other suggestions for me to use when re-creating this space? it would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Star Dust,

    I am an accredited feng shui consultant so hopefully can help you a bit. If you PM me your's and your partners date of births I will be able to work out your good directions.

    The main points for feng shui in the bedroom are:

    You should be able to see the door easily from your bed. The bed should be against a solid wall and not under a window. Of course there are other factors to consider like do you have geopathic stress or microwaves in your bedroom. Microwaves can come from clock radios, bedside lights as well as mobile phones which is why you shouldn't have mobiles in the bedroom. Do not have TVs or mirrors facing the bed and the bed should not be facing the door. Obviously there are a lot of other factors which can only be dealt with physically at the property.

    With regards to colour, it all depends what area of your house, your bedroom is situated in - North, South etc. as this will determine the element your bedroom is in. You can then use a colour which will strengthen this element.

    Sorry to butt in on this.......if it is an attic bedroom (that is pretty much the full floor plan in the house) that is the main bedroom then does that make a huge difference please? Had never thought about before I read your post Open Waves.

    Apologies, Kate x

    Hi Kate,

    Of course you are not butting in, the more the merrier :)

    As you say, if this is an attic room then it would be probably would be the full floor plan of the house unless the ground floor had been extended, in which case, I would work out how much has been extended as to whether I include it or not in the floor plan.


    If we said that an attic room was the whole floor plan of the house then I would probably expect that there are going to be sloping/low ceilings so I would be looking at what life areas they are in.

    Hope it makes sense, tried to simply it as much as I can as Feng Shui is very complicated and in-depth. This scenario is very basic.

    Oooh now that has make me think......Didn't even cross my mind that sloping ceilings would make a difference. Haha you can tell I am new to this.

    I do have a many sided clear crystal hanging from the rafter that runs through the middle of our room (and bed - between myself and my partner).

    Thanks for that - given me lots to think about :hug:

    Hi Maeshadow,

    Ideallly, I would recommend having large upright plants or uplighters under slopping ceilings as this will help raise the energy. I would remove your crystals from the rafters as crystals reflects so this could be worsening the effect of the rafters rather than improving it.

    Morning Maeshadow,

    If you remove the crystals and add some large upright rights and uplighters under the slopping ceilings, let me know if you notice any changes or need any further FS advice.

    Thanks for that great advice. :)

    May be a while before I can do anything beneficial to the bedroom as we are pretty broke at the moment. Partner has own business and work is way too quiet for comfort lol. Will let you know though x

    Ps Star_dust what colour is your bedroom (being nosey).

    I'm grand to be honest. Here's the thing, I was a mess last week and went for acupuncture and she gave me some chinese pills to take for the week and they've made me super calm about the whole thing. Am going for another session on weds, looking forward to that. I released some grief last week, hoping to release some anger this week!

    Oh lovely..... thinking of you and hope that all the releasing doesn't wear you out!! Release in tiny bits, like a pressure cooker nozzle being gently twisted!! Don't take the nozzle off completely will you?!!

    Hugs xx

    Just to go back to the feng shui - my husband was saying the other day that he seems to think our bedroom may be the cause of his intermittant nightmares....

    About once a week he will waken in the night and be really convinced of ceilings falling in, or bugs on the bed, or kids jumping out of windows etc. etc. He doesn't think it happens when he sleeps in other places.

    We have an attic bedroom with sloping ceilings and a large spine beam (on my side). The door is opposite the bed, but doesn't face the bed. The windows are on my side, and the only microwaves are two lamps and a clock radio. The room is large and airy and it is predominantly cream with a feature wall in teal. If you are looking out of the windows, you will be looking north, and the bed goes from West (headboard) to East.

    Open waves I would appreciate your input, in return I can do you a reading???!!

    Thank you so much!!

    Dip xx

    I can't help with the feng shui side of things, but just wanted to say that this happens to me too. I wake up with a fright thinking there is a spider on my bed or someone in the room. Hate it but usually go straight back to sleep.

    Good Morning Dip,

    That would be lovely if you would do me a reading in return, thank you.

    Please would you email me your's and your partner's dates of births so I can also look at your personal directions.

    I feel that you may have some geopathic stress in your bedroom/house. Also you have slopping ceilings which is not ideal but you can help these by placing uplighters and tall upright plants underneath to raise the chi.

    Feng Shui is very complicated and indepth and there is only so much advice I can give you without being present. Would you be interested in a FS consultation (I could give you a reduced rate)?

    The other issue to think about is your husband's health/wellbeing. Is he undergoing any health issues or is he currently on medication? I would also want to check the "Health" area of your home which is the centre point (on all floors). What is in this area, what colours are the walls, are there any artwork here?

    There are some crystals that maybe able to help him but this is not my area but sure there are some crystal forums on HP and there will be plenty of information on the internet.

    Marina x
