In which life area is your Master Bedroom located?
When you enter the master bedroom what does it feel like?
Esthetics of the space can reflect and amplify the energy in the room, creating the space so that it befits both you and your partner is a cooperative effort.
What feels good to both of you?
Look around the room, with eyes of observation (see the space as if you are a stranger to it, and are viewing it for the first time). Our eyes can serve as a wonderful tool to show us the flow of energy. When you are seeing a space for the first time, how your eyes travel from one area to another, the ease in which that happens or the stops and starts.
What do you see?
What catches your eye? What stands out to you?
Listen to what your intuition is telling you about the space.
The bedroom is the most private and intimate area of a home, the room where we start and end our day, connect with our partner and recharge our bodies. Therefore, does your bedroom serve you? Is it restful, peaceful and personal? Do you LOVE it?
Does it convey a balance of those that share the space? If seeking a partner, is there room for that other person to move in?
Do you LOVE what is in the space? Does it feel good? Do you sigh with relief when you enter? Do you look forward to crawling into bed each night?
When two people share the bedroom the balancing of each personality is important. Elements in the space need to compliment those who inhabit the room.
Balance can been seen and felt, it does not mean that everything has to be matchy matchy however if it looks lop-sided, then it is possible that the energy can feel out of sync.
- Lighting on night tables or night stands do not have to a pair, but complimentary in size and stature.
- Artwork over the headboard should evoke the energy of the room and be attractive to both of you; appropriately sized and affixed securely, so as to not make you feel consciously or subconsciously that it could come down on top of you.
- Electronics such as televisions can be a detractor of rest. If removing it altogether is not an option, consider covering the screen with a blanket or fabric when not in use. TV’s have a tendency to distract us by constantly wanting to be viewed.
- Books, magazines & other reading material can also take away from our goal of a good night’s rest. Stacks of books can hold a “to-do list” energy, see if it feels better to store the queue on a shelf rather than directly beside your bed.
- Mirrors are best not to be directly viewed from the bed, if you sleep restlessly it doubles the restlessness by mirroring your movements.
- Closet and drawers are best kept tidied and clutter free; in the interim the doors and drawers should be closed.
- Laundry to do, to fold or to put away are tasks that should not be stored in the master bedroom. It is a call to action rather than supporting your rest.
- Under bed storage may be efficient however may also contribute to blocking the flow of energy in the space, consider finding an alternative space to archive seasonal items, extra wardrobe, luggage etc.
- Making of the bed, may be a task that you abhor, although it is time well spent for you visually and energetically.
Lastly and most importantly: All that items you have in your master bedroom both seen and unseen, add positive energy if you Love to see them or know that they are there.
