My mom was telling me that it's bad feng shui to have a tv in the bedroom...supposedly it sucks all your energy while you're sleeping. Don't know if you guys buy into that sort of stuff, but thought I'd throw it out there. I guess if you do have one in the bedroom, it's best to have it covered up or shut away in an armoir while sleeping. Here's a list of things you shouldn't have in your bedroom according to a Feng Shui expert:
Q. What feng shui things can I do to get a good night's rest?
A. Check your bedrooms for the following five problems:
Is your bed in line with the main entrance or a bathroom door? It is very unlucky for your feet to be pointing directly out toward the door. This is considered the death position in Chinese, Italian and other cultures. When a person dies at home, the body is removed feet first from the room and the house.
Close the toilet-seat cover and bathroom door when you sleep to contain the noxious energies emanating from each. If there is simply no other place to position your bed but in the path of the door, use a flat screen or a light but opaque curtain on a rod to effectively block the sha chi aimed right at you.
Do you have a lot of electrical or electronic equipment in your bedroom such as a television, VCR or sound equipment? Remove as much of it as you can because the electromagnetic fields generated by such equipment generate a lot of sha chi or killing energy. In feng shui, television kills your love, sex life and sleep. If you simply must have a tv in your room, cover it up at night with a child's blanket which is just the right size and thickness to obstruct the negative energy.
Are there any corners pointing at your bed from interior architectural posts or angles of your bedroom furniture or from outside your bedroom window, such as your neighbor's house, lampposts or tree trunks? All of these create negative sha chi that disturbs your rest and adversely affects your health. You may wake up with headaches, for example. If the angle is inside your room, position a house plant right in front of it.
What's in your bedroom or near your pillow? If you keep altars, a litter basket, bottles of pills, clutter, books, knick-knacks, newspapers and magazines, storage under the bed, clothing, stimulating colors (red or gold) or artwork or exercise equipment nearby, then it's time to clean up and clean out your bedroom. Decorate in blues, greens – yin colors – and other soft colors that encourage good rest.
The following things should not be in your bedroom: dried plants and flowers, more than three small (4") green plants or any water features such as tabletop fountains and aquariums.
