  • Sleeping with your head: North-strengthens physical health;
    South-deepens sleep; East-helps you wake up quickly; West-slows life down which is good for stressed adults or energetic kids.

  • Clean up! When your bedroom is cluttered and untidy, the energy in there will be low and slow. Clutter is a sure sign that chi is stuck, so roll up your sleeves and clean the place up if you want to jump-start your love life.

  • Lose the mirror. Mirrors brighten a space and make it more "awake". If you have mirrored closet doors, hang a curtain in front to cover them in the evening.

  • Chi tends to travel between the door and any windows, so avoid positioning your bed in line with this ‘draught’ of chi.

  • A television in the bedroom makes romance and restful sleep decline.

  • The bedroom should be as far away as possible from the front door.

  • Never ever wear outdoor shoes into your bedroom.

  • Don't have your home office or excercise equipment there, it brings the energy of hard work and exertion into your romance space.

  • A mattress should ideally be at least 18 inches above the floor.

  • Keep your belongings organized in the bedroom and get rid of what you no longer use. Congested or chaotic homes don't lend themselves to creative pursuits because there's no room to be creative; there is no space for new things to happen because that space is taken up by all the old stuff.
