Chinese New Year had recently just passed, and together we welcome the Year of the Water Dragon. Yes, it’s that time of the year again when people go to Chinatown. Temples are visited, “tikoys” are bought, and Feng Shui experts are consulted. But wait. Do people really understand the principles and purposes of Feng Shui? Let us first understand what exactly Feng Shui is and how it impacts our lives.
Feng Shui is a Chinese system of geomancy that’s believed to use the laws of both Heaven and Earth to help improve one’s life by receiving positive Chi (Energy). In modern times, it has become such a popular aspect of interior decorating that true masters of Feng Shui have made loads of money as consultants. In addition, they also offer products for sale designed to improve health, maximize potential and guarantee fulfillment of life. With its relatively large scope, this article is going to provide you with more Feng Shui tips in buying a bed mattress.
Because the pile of topics is large and vast, I wouldn’t blame you if you’re currently wondering: “Why a bed mattress?” Well, your bed or bed mattress, to be particular, is the most important piece of furniture in your life! It’s the furniture with the most intimate connection to your personal energy. Judging by the average amount of time we spend sleeping, we cannot discount the sudden feeling of refreshment we feel the moment we wake up. This experience can be identified as the recharging of one’s Chi. Convinced yet? Good. Here are the tips:
1. Buy a comfortable mattress: A comfortable mattress is a mattress that promotes the best sleep and relaxation. The better you sleep at night, the more energized you become upon daylight. Simply put, you are overflowing with positive Chi!
2. Avoid second-hand mattress: Anyone familiar with the film, “Segunda Mano” should know what second-hand objects have in store for us. Well, the same can be said for mattresses. Stay away from second-hand bed mattresses, for they are accompanied by negative energies! This rule can be ignored when the second-hand mattress is received from people we are familiar with, like our siblings and parents. Still, if you want to experience the utmost benefits of Feng Shui, I suggest you go for the best mattress you can find in the market.
3. Use skin color linens: We don’t just sleep directly on top of mattresses. More often than not, we wrap it with bed linens, and the best thing for us to do is to use skin color linens that can aid us to sleep. Bright red and yellow linens are not recommended, because some say that it can give some people a hard time falling asleep.
