The most important interior factor affecting your health in your bedroom and in your home is the positioning of your bed.

If at all possible, always try to position your bed so that you face and see the bedroom door, the “mouth of the ch’i,” which brings with it a powerful life force that also carries to you all of life’s opportunities, all its ups and downs. By positioning the bed to face the door, you are also positioning yourself to face your life directly, to be in command and to receive the energy of the ch’i.

The four main conditions for proper bed positioning are:
1. Whenever possible, have the bed face the door;
2. Place the bed so when you’re in it you have the widest view of the room;
3. Positioning of the bed is relative, which means that its proper placement is contingent on where the door is located in the room; and finally,
4. Never place the bed in direct alignment with, or in a position that has it overlapping, the door.

When given a choice, place the bed on a solid interior, non-window wall. The body’s energy will be stronger that way, and more likely to heal with solid support behind it. Although the author sometimes places beds on a window wall, she uses this as a last resort when all other interior walls are not an option, especially when an individual is sick or in a weakened state.

If the bed can’t be moved, try putting plants in the window or behind the headboard to keep energy in the room.
