By giving a little more thought to your child’s room, you can help him cope up with certain problems through Feng Shui.
As a parent, you always aspire to provide your child with every comfort which you feel is essential for a healthy upbringing. You worry about his health, his academics and his future. You want him to grow up as a kind and mannered being. But what happens when you feel he is not meeting your expectations? Do you always pinpoint at him and blame him for the outcomes? Or do you look around and try to see if your child’s room is at fault?
Your child’s room can have a considerable affect on his behavior and his academic performance. And redecorating and rearranging the room according to Feng Shui principles can optimize the negative vibrations. Here’s what all you can do.
Feng Shui Tips for Kids Bedroom:
1. Sleeping Direction:
According to Feng Shui Tips, the sleeping habit, the directions and the condition of the room can influence a person’s behavior to a great aspect. It is believed that if a child sleeps with his head pointed in any of the wrong directions, then it can have negative effects on his academics. What’s worse, his relation with his siblings can also get affected.
Make sure there is no solid beam on the wall or any sort of beam of light falling on your child’s head while he’s resting on the bed. In case there is any, then immediately change the position of the bed so that the beam doesn’t fall directly.
Ideally, the bed should have its headboard against a solid wall. Also, make sure that there is enough space to walk around on each side of the bed; don’t push the bed at one side up against the wall. Also, avoid placing the bed under a window or directly in line with the door. To check the energy inflow, you can try this out: Standing in the doorway, if you can toss a ball straight ahead and hit the bed, energy flowing into the room will also hit the bed and bounce out of the room. And this is not good for your child. Also, avoid using water beds as it can affect your child’s sleep.
2. Education Energizers:
A child’s academic performance sometimes becomes a major point of concern for most parents. And parents restore to shouting and yelling in case of poor performance. However, this behaviour at your end won’t help in solving the problem and can in turn worsen things.
Place a crystal globe in the NorthEast corner of your child’s room or study room, if you wish to enhance his performance. Place a notice board with red or a dark pink base on the wall in the East and stick all the important notes there. Make sure that each note on the board is efficiently clear and noticeable. For this, you can make use of several colours and shapes of the notes.
3. Toilets and staircase:
Be sure that your child’s room doesn’t face a bathroom or a staircase as negative energy can make him disobedient, angry and less enthusiastic in his school-related work.
See if the bed can be re-positioned in a way that the child does not face the door of the bathroom while sleeping. This will only invite health-related troubles in his life. Hanging a five or seven-belled wind chime outside the door can be a good option for removing the errors as this arrangement will help him fight against the negative energies.
4. What the child sees:
Look at what your child sees every day. A happy photograph of your family hanging on a wall which is visible from your child’s bed will be comforting to your child’s eyes before he falls asleep and wakes up. This will constantly ensure him that he is the part of a happy family even when he is alone in the room. Avoid pictures or hangings of animals or horrifying masks.
5. Take care of the colours:
Your child’s sleeping habits will let you know whether his room is comfortable or not. If you keep finding your child coming to your room time and again to sleep with you, then it is enough a sign for you to know that his room is not a cherished place for him. Avoid using energising colours such as red and other bold, bright colours in the bedroom as they can cause tempers to flare up during playtime. Such colours also ensure too much hyperactive energy for the little one to fall asleep at night. Bright colours are good for playrooms and not the bedrooms; they need to be more subdued. Pastels are best.
Creating a comfortable, harmonious bedroom makes for a good night’s rest. And a good night’s rest makes for a refreshed, healthy child.
