Kids sense the energy around them. A good Feng Shui in their room will nourish them, whereas a bad one will make them uncomfortable and resistant to life.
During one of my consultations, my client told me that her teen daughter hated her room so much that she would rather sleep on the living room sofa, than to sleep in her own bed. Obviously, this was very frustrating for them and they were eager to do anything to reverse the situation.
The major issue was the position of the bed. It was placed right in front of the door, leaving little space to be closed. When the teen would lie in her bed, her feet would face the door. This is called the ‘coffin position’ and is considered threatening.
The second problem was the head of the bed. It was leaning against the window and had metal frames. Windows can’t provide protection to the negative energy coming from outside and metal frames distort the energy, causing the person to feel insecure and uncomfortable.
It is very important to feel secure while sleeping, and beds have a huge role. No wonder, the daughter didn’t want to sleep in her own bed; subconsciously, she was feeling the negative energy.
Besides the bed, her desk placement was also not correct. It was in the middle of the room with no back support and this was affecting her ability to concentrate.
First, we changed the metal frames to a solid, fabric bedhead and moved the bed to the command position of the room, leaning its head against the wall. Then we repositioned the desk in a way that her chair would be between the desk and the wall.
These changes gave her the feeling of protection while sleeping, and ability to concentrate when studying.
By the time we were done with the clutter cleaning and space clearing, the stagnant energy had already started to soften and flow again.
Within a short time, I got a call from the Mom. She told me that her daughter had not only loved the changes we’ve made, she had also started spending time and sleeping in her room!
Feng Shui is the art of placing furniture to create a balance between the visible and the invisible worlds. When the energy flows properly in our spaces, we feel supported and healthy. Especially kids, being much more receptive than adults, will reflect the positivity in all areas of their lives.
If your kids are having issues with their room or bed, please acknowledge and address the problem. Sometimes, by only making a simple change, you can allow the energy to flow correctly in their room.
Kids that have balanced energy in their rooms will sleep better, feel supported and have more confidence in life.
