According to the authentic form of Feng Shui that originated from the Chinese culture about five thousand years ago, there are three major places of focus to analyze the Feng Shui and chi of a residence: The entrance, the master bedroom and the kitchen.
So, in accordance with traditional Feng Shui, one of the major ways of improving the energy is to start with the master bedroom, and this is what I suggest people focus on when trying to deal with improving the energy. Time is limited, so start clearing things out of your master bedroom that are not essential to sleeping and resting. The combined 100 years of field experience between my father and I, we have seen too often that people clutter their night tables – a very common mistake – but one easily fixed! Pill bottles, more than one book (stacks of books sometimes), newspapers, magazines, telephone, alarm clocks, candles, spiritual objects and other personal objects are what we see all the time. This is very bad Feng Shui that drains from the sense of calmness one should see and feel when approaching the bed where people are supposed to feel relaxed and recharge well. It is important to be lying next to minimal things that enable you to feel order and serenity. Not the drama of the books or other reading texts. Not the negative electric magnetite field of the phone, wall plug alarm clock,… By our bedside, the less the better.
For people with strong fire energy or in career of high stress, it might help to have two small smooth stones, each the size of half your palm, that you may rotate two at a time in one palm and get into a calmer state through the Earth Element that absorbs the stress from you. Think of the connectivity to nature and this as a predictable routine that you have control over in your life. You do need to cleanse these stone periodically.
Then, clear the entry area to your master bedroom and place tranquil objects on that wall that are helpful to your own vibrations, based on your own Five Elements Composition. A traditional Feng Shui master from the Chinese culture that knows the varying tastes in current design would be able to help you to figure out a customized theme helpful to you.
Clear things under your bed. This is especially important if you are trying to find a mate in your life. Things under bed block the earth chi that suppose to travel up freely and be active in the room. This applies to rooms in apartment units as well.
Lastly, clear the path to your bed from the bedroom entry so that it won’t be a twist and turn before getting there. Simplicity and clarity is ideal where the energy travels through.
These are some of the more important pointers among a list of other things that an authentic Feng Shui master would be looking into in relations to how objects affect your state of mind and energy field.
