Feng Shui and Master Bedrooms


One of the important areas inside the home to create good Feng Shui is the master bedroom. The bed is, of course, the most important element in the mix, so choose wisely! 


The bed should reside on an inside wall for “support.” For the same reason, you should not sleep under a window, considered a weak wall. 
The headboard should be taller than the footboard, but you don’t need a footboard. 


Solid wood is a great headboard material for stability and good sleep.
The master bedroom should be more yin than yang for better rest. Earth elements are good for a master bedroom, water is not as good an element as it is yang and may disrupt sleep.


Avoid sleeping under beams as they represent poison arrows and can exacerbate illness.


This bedroom pictured below is a good example of a good setup for good Feng Shui in a master bedroom.

Dog days of Summer, Feng Shui and pets


We are prepping…for a dog! Said dog must be cool with cats, as Licorice is going strong at 18+. It’s time. What do dogs, and pets in general have to do with Feng Shui? Feng Shui is about the home, where it is, the forms and elements surrounding it, timing, and who occupies the home. If your kids are of the furry variety, they also affect the energy of the home. The 4 legged kids are usually Yang Energy. We began discussing Yin and Yang energy a couple of weeks ago, so I want to give you some Yin Yang perspective regarding your pets.

Fish are yin, if you are wondering. Fish=water=yin when it’s still water.

Animals are associated with the South, and Fire element, making them Yang. They add good energy to homes, but it’s all about balance. Too much of a good thing becomes a problem if your pet’s health and your health suffer. No hoarding! How many is too many? If you have 30 acres, you can spread the love, if you have a 400ft studio in New York, think small and one.

Post your pets! We’d love to see them.
