Feng Shui in the bedroom is a very important part of our lives that we overlook. We spend about 8 hours a day, 56 hours a week, 240 hours a month, 2,920 hours a year sleeping. That amounts to about 1/3 of our lifetimes. Most of the time, for the non travelers, that sleeping time is spent in our very own beds. But have you ever thought of all the clutter you have crammed under there. That hidden clutter is a non verbal statement of our lives and is throwing our Feng Shui off. The Feng Shui rule for storing items under our beds is a definite no! Two reasons why this rule is important are proximity and duration. The first is the principle of proximity, which means the closer something is to you the stronger it’s effect will be in your life. The second is the principal of duration. Which means the longer you are exposed to a particular influence the stronger its affect will be. Some may say that their mattress is thick or you cannot see the clutter because it is neatly stored or covered by a bed skirt. In Feng Shui the symbolic energy of an object or image is just as important as whatever literal impact it may have. I wonder if that is why the bible is left in hotel night stands. Was Feng Shui in use without anyone even realizing it. hmmmm
