8 Easy Feng Shui Bedroom Tips

8 Easy Feng Shui Bedroom Tips
Innumerable studies have shown that a good night's rest is vital to happy and healthy living. By applying these 8 Feng Shui bedroom Tips don't be surprised if you find yourself sleeping better, feeling more rested and refreshed than ever before.

These Feng Shui bedroom tips are all about attracting and channeling energy through and around the room. Done correctly this energy will work toward a health restoring, restful sleep experience.

Feng Shui understands that all aspects of life contain levels of energy. Science, within several independent studies, agree that "all matter in the universe is connected on the subatomic level through a constant dance of quantum energy exchange."

In other words what scientists have discovered within the last few hundred years, the Eastern practice of Feng Shui has been applied for 1000's of years.

So, let's get started on creating the positive energy effects of getting a good night's sleep by applying these Feng Shui bedroom tips.

Feng Shui bedroom Tip 1: Rearrange Your Bed

The foot of the bed should not point directly to the door.

The door is the entry way for Feng Shui's life energy. Blocking or stopping that energy with objects or doors will only create limited access or stagnant air pockets.

The goal is to allow the positive energy (known as Sheng Chi in Feng Shui) to easily move around the room and over your body as you sleep.

Position the bed in a way you can easily see but does not block the door.

Feng Shui bedroom Tip 2: De Clutter

The fewer items you have strewn around the room the more conducive your room will be to peace, rest and sleep. Surface clutter goes beyond Feng Shui in that the subtle emotional reactions will agitate your inner space. But, with Feng Shui in the bedroom clutter acts as a energy breaker or blocker.

Imagine your room as a road. If you have to constantly maneuver around objects such as rocks, tree limbs, or animals…the drive becomes exhausting. If you can cruise down a clear country road for miles without distraction, the drive is relaxingly enjoyable.

Chi energy works in the same way, when the space is free of clutter. Though a great storage area stuff under the bed will block energy from circulating properly.

Feng Shui bedroom Tip 3: Use Soft Edged Furniture

Anything with "points" is understood to generate Sha Chi energy which is the negative counterpart of Sheng Chi.

This type of energy drains and weakens. It's the place of depletion, sickness and poverty. If you are experiencing feeling of depression or general malaise, it is understood by the followers of Feng Shui that you are under the influence of Sheng Chi energy.

Pointed edges from furniture, head boards or anything in the room that is pointing toward you as you sleep are referred to as "poison arrows".

Evaluate the rooms layout and either replace your furniture with softer edged ones or reposition those points so they are not facing you as you lie on your bed.

Feng Shui bedroom Tip 4: Close the Master Bathroom Door

Water is full of moving energy, when a master bathroom door is open it will attract and pull any positive energy quickly through the room and down the toilet.

Think of this as acting like electricity. Electricity always takes the path of least resistance, so will Feng Shui in the bedroom if you do not keep the bathroom door closed.

Feng Shui bedroom Tip 5:Move The Electronics

Keep computers, telephones, televisions, cell phones at least 5 to 6 feet away from the bed. These items give off electromagnetic fields (EMF) which will take a toll on your overall health and well being over time.

If you cannot move these due to a small spaced bedroom, try to separate or break up the path to these EMF waves by using a portable wall divider or large floor plant.

Feng Shui bedroom Tip 6: Remove Activity

A desk with a computer or an exercise treadmill is a constant reminder of work or exercise. Remove any items that do not create the attitude and expectation of rest and sleep.

Once again if there is no room in the rest of your house, find a way to block or divide the visual awareness of these items also by using a large plant or room divider of some sort.

Feng Shui bedroom Tip 7: Paint the Walls

Color effects your mood and emotions. By painting your walls a soft robin egg blue or warm neutral, the mood in the room will invite peace and slumber. Accent the walls with soft edged paintings with further soothing colors. Do not include mirrors as a wall design accent.

Feng Shui bedroom Tip 8: Open Those Windows

If at all possible circulate fresh air through the bedroom each night. By circulating air you are circulating Cheng Shi in your Feng Shui in the bedroom.

These are just a few important steps to inviting the positive life changing power of Feng Shui in your bedroom.. By implementing these simple steps to bring Feng Shui into your bedroom you are well on your way to experiencing more success, improving your health and of course, getting a superior nights sleep.

5 Tips for Vibrant Kitchen Feng Shui

5 Tips for Vibrant Kitchen Feng Shui
The kitchen is a very powerful place, feng shui-wise. It is the heart of the home. Like your heart, it is deserves special care for optimal health. Does your kitchen delight the senses? Or it is usually an eyesore?

The kitchen will positively affect the part of your life and your body it relates to when :

1. The kitchen counter surfaces are primarily clear and ready to allow you to prepare yummy, healthy meals. Even if you eat out nearly all the time. Youll want some beautiful, colorful, bountiful feeling art, accessories, or even just bowls of real fruit. A healthy plant or two.

What you dont want are counters so stuffed with occasionally used appliances and stacks of papers that it is impossible to use the kitchen without clearing a space first.

2. Ideally, knives are kept in drawers. Yes, they probably came in a beautiful counter top knife block, but it is not good feng shui to have knives so easily accessible, especially if there are children in the house. And even if they arent. Williams Sonoma has in-drawer knife blocks.

3. Your kitchen will have two, three, or four drains. Drains can drain your finances, your physical health, your aspirations to travel, clog your sinuses, and otherwise wreak havoc, depending on the kitchen location in relation to the feng shui grid.

Ideally, you keep all those drains closed unless youre using them. In reality, that can be a real hassle. Which isnt good feng shui either.

You can energetically keep your drains closed with kitchen sink strainers.

4. Can you see the front of your refrigerator? Or it is covered with photos, kid art, exercise class schedules, calorie/fat charts, coupons, and a horde of marauding magnets?

It is good feng shui to display your childs art. Its even good feng shui to do so on your refrigerator. However, not willy nilly and not in the midst of all that other stuff. If you are honoring your childs artistic endeavors, honor it. Display it clearly.

Photos of people who love and support you, depicting fun vacations and personal celebrations are great for the refrigerator door. Create a pleasing composition of items with the door as the canvas.

Tape exercise class schedules to the INSIDE of a cabinet door. Ditto calorie/fat counters. They are handy but dont nag you, there.

5. Out of sight is not out of mind in feng shui, so if your kitchen cabinets are stuffed with appliances, containers, multiple sets of china, and even food you havent used in over a year, its time for some clutter clearing.
Cleared out cabinets frees your creativity and your respiratory system if that is the part of the grid where your kitchen lies. If it is in your Relationship area, cleared cabinets help you clear out your emotional baggage and be fully present with your sweetie.

The basic question to guide your kitchen Feng Shui is this: Does your kitchen delight your senses or not?

2 Effective Homemade Cleaners For Kitchen Cabinets

2 Effective Homemade Cleaners For Kitchen Cabinets
kitchen cabinets are the face of every kitchen attracting the whole attention. Even if you are the most careful cook, splatters will still appear. Grease and grim always find a way to cling to the most remote and unthinkable surfaces in your kitchen. Even if the kitchen cabinets don't look dirty, bacteria and other food particles may have left in your hands, causing them to stick to the surface and allowing an adhesive residue to build up. Most people think that cleaning as you go is the best way to keep a satisfying level of cleanliness in your home, but on days when you're preparing a multi-ingredient meal, it won't be enough. A deep cleaning will be mandatory.

For that purpose, you could make your cleaning solution with the ingredients you already have in your pantry. It's effectiveness is as good as an expensive, non-green, bought from the market cleaner.

What You Need?

Materials

Liquid dishwashing soap
Water
Cooking oil
Baking soda
Wash rag or a cleaning toothbrush
Magic eraser
Rubber gloves
Essential oil (if you have it)

Cleaning With Soap

For basic dirt and grime you could make a combination of liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. The proportion is: a tablespoon of dish soap and a half cup of warm water. Mix them until the ingredients homogenize. Put a pea sized amount of that paste on a toothbrush or a clean rag, then scrub down your kitchen cabinets.

Again with the toothbrush, clean under the hardware, or if it's possible to remove them in order to clean the cabinets deeply, will be great. We all know that the area around the hardware needs the biggest attention, but let's not forget to wipe down the sides, insides and the front door of the cabinet. Then rinse with warm water. You could clean in the same way as a professional cleaner could.

This cleaning solution could come in handy if you are moving into a new apartment and the kitchen cabinets and other greasy furniture need degreasing before using them, Yes, it's not the most amusing domestic chore, but as sooner as you could do it, the better and relieved you'll feel. As long as you wait, more grime will build up.

A magic eraser could be used for those surfaces that are painted and easily scratched, because the abrasive cleaners could damage them.

Cleaning With Baking Soda

In case the dishwashing detergent doesn't work, you can use something more abrasive, like baking soda. The next recipe can be used on any hard for cleaning surface. Pour 3 tbsp. of baking soda in a small dish and add cooking oil, mix until you get a slightly runny paste (about 1 1/2 tbsp.). Be careful because if it's too runny, it could slide off your furniture. Additionally, you can add 2-3 drops of essential oil to the mixture so it will smell nice during and after the cleaning session.

Now, the funny part comes. Dip a cleaning brush in the paste and start scrubbing! Harder to clean is the cooked on food on the bottom of the cabinets, so don't forget to look there. After that, rinse off any leftover residue with a wet rag.

Yes, it may sound to you like one of those impossible tasks used to torture people in Greek mythology. But, it's not true.

*Hint: In order to ease your chore, put paper on the tops of your cabinets where people can't see. That way the grime and grease will fall down on it. Changing the paper once a year will be suffice.

By and large, the final decision is yours. You can make your green cleaner from the products you have at home or you can buy expensive cleaning detergents, but risking to leave toxic residues after cleaning.

Black Fixtures with open ledge storage:

They do not want to do away with the art pieces but make it small while making more space for toiletries, soaps and a few toothbrushes on the ledge.

However, not everything can be stacked in these ledges and you may need a medicine cabinet to stock the excess items. Only prettier and visually appealing items can be put on this arrangement and not any ugly toothbrush or a half empty and rolled tube of shaving cream.

While some may complain that the feature lacks functionality, for others, this can be a pure delight for the eyes.

However, experts suggest that when you use marble, you should use anything else to let the marble outshine. The marble remains the focal point while everything other empowers the background.

The latest trend in marble walls is Bookmatching it appears in the marble wall is an open book. For this, the marble experts chop the marble in two halves and join them in a way that the same patterns come side-by-side, giving a feeling of an open book. Trust us on this, the final look is simply majestic.
