When someone starts to feng shui their home, there are some areas that you might need help in figuring out where to start. The process that I underwent to feng shui my home would have been a lost cause had I not had some wonderful assistance. But my favorite room to feng shui was my bedroom. My bedroom is a comfortable place that I love. I love my bed and the way it looks in my room and I truly love the peace I get when I go into my room to sleep. There are some feng shui bedroom tips that I will share with you so that you can speed along the process of calming your life. There are five main feng shui bedroom tips that I feel to be very important. One that is important is lighting. The lighting that is present in your bedroom is really important with feng shui. If you have really bright lights or hideous light fixtures, that can kill your feng shui efforts. Different levels of lighting are one of the feng shui bedroom tips that I feel is very important. To be able to dim your lights helps to create a warm atmosphere that brings a calming effect and will make your room seem very inviting.

Something else I would like to point out in my feng shui bedroom tips is that you should do away with big things like workout equipment, televisions and even computers. These are things that are big, bulky and don’t signal peace. By having these in your bedroom you are chasing away the ability to have a feng shui bedroom. It might be hard to do but trust me, this is a part of the feng shui bedroom tips that will bring about surprising results. You might be thinking that you fall asleep watching television and so it has to stay. But by falling asleep with a television, you are nodding off with those last images on your brain. You won’t be able to let your body rest in the way that it needs to if you do that.

A part of the feng shui bedroom tips that will make a huge effect is to think about the pictures that you hang on your wall. When you pick out something to hang on your bedroom wall, it should be something that you hope to do one day or of something really great that you already did. If there was a special trip that you went on that you never want to forget, pictures of that would be good to hang. Keep in mind that you should never hang pictures that make you sad. Remember as one of my feng shui bedroom tips, feng shui is to help create a happy and positive atmosphere. Do what you need to so that negative feelings won’t be in your space.

Bed placement is something that you might not think about as one of the feng shui bedroom tips but it’s something that you should think about. If you just toss your bed anywhere in your room, odds are that it’s not going to flow well. Placing your bed so that one side is up against a wall is not good with feng shui. You want to be able to easily access both sides of your bed. That is part of being able to feng shui your bedroom.

The last tip that I want to give you with my feng shui bedroom tips is to shut up all your doors before climbing into bed. If you leave the doors open you are allowing your positive energy to have too much room. Leaving the doors closed will keep all of your positive energy near you as you sleep at night.

As a Numerologist I’ve been asked numerous times by friends, students, clients, listener’s to my radio appearances and by those moving from one residence to another what their house number means. Moving house can be a very traumatic experience or, a very liberating one, and numbers offer a clue as to whether you’ve made the right choice or the wrong one! Now, after 30 years working with Numerology I want to share some of this knowledge with you and ask you to reduce your house number to a single digit i.e.: 19 would become 10 then become 1 (1+9=10, 1+0 = 1) and see what Numerology has to offer you regarding the place you call home.

One proviso: If living in a flat or unit consider this: The number affects you and those who live with you and the number of the block affects everyone in the building including you! Don’t add all the numbers of your address (i.e.: 3/123) and reduce them to a single digit consider what I’ve said above and piece the information together like a jigsaw puzzle and you’ll come to understand more about where you live than you’ve ever imagined for believe it or not the place you live or about to move into has chosen you! If you follow this simple instruction we’ll be on the ‘same page.’

House Number One: This number usually means having to contend with many family responsibilities and not always happy ones! You’ll often feel alone whilst living here so make sure you have interesting hobbies to occupy your mind. This house number attracts Leos and is linked to the Sun in Astrology and all things to do with 5th house affairs.

House Number Two: Welfare programs, social work and community involvement will demand a lot of your time. Cancerian’s are drawn to this number as are those with a connection with Scotland! Number 2 is linked to the Moon in Astrology and all matters to do with the 4th sector of your Astrological Chart.

House Number Three: Travel and adventure are the keywords for this number. Ambitious people are drawn here as well as people who take risks, gamblers in particular. Sagittarians and pets are attracted to this address as well as those connected to the legal profession, connected to the planet Jupiter and the 9th house in Astrology.

House Number Four: This is the most unpredictable of all the house numbers with one crisis after another. Expect your life to move in a completely different direction from what you had in mind if moving in here! Aquarians will enter your life (you may be one yourself!) and linked to the planet Uranus in Astrology and the 11th sector of the chart.

House Number Five: Living here is like living in a hotel – expect all sorts of comings and goings at all hours of the day and night. Gemini’s and Virgo’s are attracted to this number, linked to the planet Mercury and the 3rd and 6th sector of your Astrological Chart. Look after your skin and make sure all food is prepared in the cleanest of environments. Keep insurance policies up-to-date and all cash under lock and key.

House Number Six: You’d better have a green thumb as this number demands greenery! When you move into this address unpack everything you own for you’re going to be here for a long time (well it’ll feel like that) for this is a number of stability. Linked to the planet Venus in Astrology with Taurean’s and Libran’s attracted to this number, linked with the 2nd and 7th sector of the zodiac.

House Number Seven: A strange number which may even be a bit spooky, even to being actually haunted by the memories of the previous occupants! Check the water table and the area for flooding, as well as the pipes for leaks. Piscean’s are drawn and benefit from living at this address, linked to the planet Neptune and associated with the 12th sector of the zodiac.

House Number Eight: Older people live here and even if you’re young you’ll be or become mature in your thinking. Clocks are often a hobby of those who live here and time will fascinate you even to the concept of reincarnation! Check the foundations of this house there’s usually a few hidden problems that’ll need your attention or, save you money before you purchase of move in. Capricorn’s will find this a lucky address and linked to the planet Saturn along with 10th house of the zodiac.

House Number Nine: This is the number of the ‘battler.’ Don’t invite the family around for too many gatherings; you’ll end up having the usual arguments! Problems with neighbours also are likely! Aries and Scorpios are drawn to this number and associated with the 1st and 8th sector of the zodiac (Mars and Pluto).
