Feng Shui bed placement is ultra-important in Feng Shui. As we sleep seven to eight hours in our bed every night or everyday if someone works night shift. So if a bed is placed at the correct Feng Shui sector in the bedroom, it can make a difference to a few areas.
The bed we sleep, for most people are the single place where spend the longest time in a day.
Arguably, we are at our office desk for almost the same length of time or even more time compare with the time staying in our bed. However, don’t forget the lunch breaks, tea time, toilet breaks or sometimes needing to see clients or meeting with the seniors. As a result, we are not consecutively spending seven to eight hours at our office desk. So office desk placement is important too. There is another article for me to write in the future.
Undoubtedly, in Feng Shui, the bed we sleep and its placement position in our bedroom has great effect on our well-beings, such as luck, health, fertility or pregnancy.
There are seven different Feng Shui ways of bed placement in a bed room. The bed positon or bed placement to be set up in the bedroom is depending on what is the priority to the person(s) who sleep there.
There is Feng Shui bed placement in a room for single and Feng Shui bed placement in a room for couples.
These seven Feng Shui bed placement methods are:
1. Form Feng Shui principle (形家法) bed placement
2. Eight Houses Feng Shui principle (八宅法) bed placement
3. San He Feng Shui principle (三合法) bed placement
4. Eight Doors Feng Shui principle (八門法) bed placement
5. San Yuan Eight Doors Feng Shui (三元八門法) bed placement
6. Nine Stars Feng Shui principle (九星法) bed placement
7. Yearly Sun Star Feng Shui principle (流年太陽法) bed placement
Most of the Feng Shui consultants, they set up the bed placement for their clients using the first method in the above list, the Form Feng Shui principle bed placement.
The Form Feng Shui principle bed placement is the fundamental method. It is good to set up the bed with the following Form Feng Shui principles:
The bed head should against a solid wall but avoid the wall with the door.
The bed should be in a control position
Bed is not underneath a beam
Bedroom door or ensuite door does not open to the bed.
When lie down, the right side of the bed does not against the wall.
No big objects hanging above the bed
No skylight above the bed.
No sharp objects put under the bed
No mirrors face to the bed
Bed should not be at an angle with wall (Some article says it is also a control position. It is not true. Do not place your bed this way.)
No TV and big electronic devices in the room.
After the above conditions are met, we can add an extra layer of Feng Shui bed placement method to the above according to client’s requirement.
The Eight Houses Feng Shui principle (八宅法) bed placement method is used to improve a person’s health. This method is for a person to sleep face to their own favourable feng shui direction also known as favourable Ming Gua direction to improve health.
If the person is healthy and just need to improve luck, then it is preferred to use the Eight Doors Feng Shui principle (八門法) or San Yuan Eight Doors Feng Shui principle (三元八門) for Feng Shui bed placement.
The above Feng Shui bed placement methods are for single. Here come the Feng Shui bed placement methods for couples.
The Nine Stars Feng Shui principle (九星法) bed placement is depending on who is the bread winner of the house. If it is the wife, then the way of bed placement is set up is for the husband to support the wife. If the bread winner is the husband, then the way Feng Shui bed placement is set up for the wife to support the husband. Traditionally, there was always bed placement for wife to support husband in Nine Star Feng Shui bed placement. Nowadays wife may earn more money than her husband, so the Nine Stars bed placement Feng Shui principle needs to be flexibly used.
The San He Feng Shui principle (三合法) bed placement method is used to speed up and improve the chance of fertility or pregnancy. In a formula, it uses the birthday of the husband, the direction and position of the bed head in the room, then with a pre-selected day and time to set up the bed placement. This method works and I have been helping a few couples already. However sometimes, that particular bed placement position cannot be found. This explains why some couples, after moving to another house, they are easier getting pregnant.
Traditionally Chinese are patriarchal, so the Yearly Sun Star Feng Shui principle (流年太陽法) bed placement is to help speed up pregnancy with a boy. This method needs to work with the San He Feng Shui principle. However, the yearly Sun Star may not be so accurately located at desired sector of the house.
