Feng Shui Q & A : Did My Bedroom Contribute To My Heartbreak?

Jul 11, 2012 | Feng Shui 101

A reader sent in a question about heartbreak, feng shui & relationships: “Hi Dana, I’m currently healing a broken heart (my bf of 2.5years broke up with me a month ago) and wondering if the bad feng shui in my bedroom played a part in it. My bed is facing directly to the door. It gets worse, because I have a double mirrored built-in wardrobe right next to the door. So however I place my bed, it seems to be bad feng shui (either facing the bed or mirror). Do you have any suggestions? I feel like I am at an all time low :(. “.

My answer:
Well, facing a mirror is one way to magnify issues in your life, just like you sleep with that magnifying energy right at your feet.  Sleeping with feet out the door is draining of your energy, since essentially you are laying  in a direct pathway to enter the space.  So, could either of those make a relationship more difficult? Yes, sure, both could.
That said, your present environment  is a reflection of your life. Maybe you have had issues come up that have grown in magnitude because they were not addressed, or they were never worked through?  Maybe you have allowed other people or circumstances to drain your energy, or you let this relationship drain your energy?  I would take a look at these ideas and see if they resonate with you.
Now to move forward!  The fun part!  I would cover your mirrored stuff in total on in part with some great looking Contact paper.  It peels off, its inexpensive and you can find beautiful patterns online.  And I would suggest you sleep with a shoji screen at the foot of your bed to create a nice “wall” while you sleep so you are not drained.  For now, both are good fixes to this temporary situation.  Things will get better!!!!  Good luck!!!

    Does it matter how short or tall the shoji screen is?? Is 4′ tall enough, just enough to block the feet from the door?? I have a similar issue, but I am just slightly right of the door, not in direct line with the door. Thanks in advance.

      You know, if it feels more comfortable it is serving its purpose. I had a 5′ screen in one home & it was perfect.
