Feng Shui and Ceiling Fans


It’s getting to be that time of year! The heat is on and so are the ceiling fans. I get asked often at this time of year if ceiling fans are ok in terms of Feng Shui-especially over the bed.


Ceiling fans are good and a necessary item in many homes, so they are a good thing to have.

As it relates to Feng Shui, it may not be good Feng Shui in these instances: If fans are running so high that your papers are flying around.

Why? Chi, or life’s breath, does not exist in extreme winds, so it cannot move through a space effectively if it’s been completely dispersed. Same thing applies to the inside of your home; too much wind is not good.

Over your bed:

The fan blades can be “cutting chi” if the blades face you. If you have a fan and sleep well and everything else in your life is good-don’t remote the fan. If you installed a fan recently and are having trouble sleeping, you may want to pay attention to your fan activity and your sleep habits.
