Question: My love relationship has ended badly, and I feel my bed has bad feng shui energy. I cannot buy a new bed, and I cannot sleep in my present bed. I feel my bedroom is full of bad feng shui, I just can't stand it. What do I need to do to clear bad energy from my bed?

Answer:   Sorry to hear about your painful experience. Yes, for sure, both spaces, as well as various items, can absorb negative energy, so it is good that you are aware of the need to clean the energy of suffering and pain from your bedroom.​

There are many feng shui ways to do that, and no matter which method you decide to apply, it is important to be consistent with it. It might take some time to fully clear your bedroom of negative energy, but it is certainly possible.

Now,  it is important to know that various materials and textures absorb (and hold) the energy in various ways. This applies to both negative, as well as positive energies.

To understand that, imagine energy as colored water. If you spill this water on a reflective surface, such as stainless steel, for example, it will be really easy to clean it. However, once it is spilled on let's say, silk or cotton, it gets much harder to clear it completely.

This example can be helpful in order to illustrate the following statement - while there is no need to buy a new bed once your relationship has ended, it can be a good idea to let go of the old mattress. Especially if this was a long-term relationship where you shared the bed. It is not something you must do, but just something that is good to consider.

Now let's go to the actual ways to clear the energy from your bed and bedroom. To clear the bad feng shui energy from your bed - and by bad feng shui energy I mean the energy residues of sadness, disappointment, pain, etc - you need to look into space clearing feng shui tips.

I suggest you find the time to do a major feng shui space clearing session, and then keep space clearing your bed and bedroom on a weekly or even daily basis for at least a month.

This might sound like a lot of work, but trust me, it isn't.

Here's some basic info on feng shui space clearing that will help you:

If you cannot sleep well, be sure to shift the feng shui energy in your whole bedroom. Try to:

  • Reposition your bed
  • Buy new bedding
  • If possible, buy a new mattress
  • Slightly move all pieces of furniture
  • Clear out your closet
  • Bring a photo or art that speaks to you of love and beauty
  • Place several rose quartz crystals close to your bed
  • Use an aromatherapy diffuser with soothing essential oils
  • Adorn your bedroom often with a small bouquet of fresh flowers
  • Use natural candles before going to sleep

Let the nourishing energy of self-love take expression in your newly feng shui-ed bedroom, as this will help your heart open to loving another again. 

Know that this painful period in your life shall pass, too, and nurture yourself well. Trust that a better love relationship is there for you; just commit to establishing a very loving relationship with yourself.
