Children need constant care and support. They like to feel the attention of adults, but at the same time, they want to have their own personal space for games and recreation. The children’s room is the most important room in the child’s small world. This is his special refuge, where he can play and be merry * during the day, but also a place where he can safely and soundly sleep at night.
Bad feng shui in the nursery – for example, if a child sleeps under a steep roof slope or on the lower section of a bunk bed – can have a detrimental effect on the whole family. If you are not lucky enough to have a room for games in the house, the children’s bedroom should be spacious enough to sleep, communicate with a variety of games and entertainment.
Thanks to the skillful combination of shades, materials and textures, as well as the storage of toys and other children’s things in colorful boxes and boxes where they will not clutter the room, you can create the right atmosphere in the nursery, suitable for both leisure and active day classes.
Thanks to the skillful use of space and regular ordering, it is possible to ensure the flow of beneficial qi energy into the children’s room. Children love to create a mess, but in an unattached room, it becomes difficult for them to think and act. Try to provide the children’s room with everything necessary for storing things (see the “Feng Shui style files” section in this section) and encourage children to clean toys the night before bedtime. Choose simple, colorful boxes and toy boxes, but avoid heavy covers that can pinch small children’s fingers.
If the child sleeps restlessly, check that the bed is oriented in the cocoon direction. Try to arrange so that he slept in the most favorable direction of Shenqi or in the “direction of health”. Above the head of the bed should not be overhanging objects, such as a hanging cupboard, shelf, cross beam or beveled ceiling. All of them create energy pressure on the child, which leads to sleep disorders.
Keeping things under the bed can also cause sleep disturbance. Do not put the bed head to the window, as it deprives the child of the solid support that the wall gives, and directs the flow of active qi from the outside to the bed, which can also cause problems with falling asleep.
Ideally, furniture should be made of natural materials with chamfered or rounded corners to avoid the formation of “secret shooters” carrying harmful sha chi energy. Smooth outlines of furniture in the nursery not only contribute to the free movement of energy, but also protect the child from possible injuries.
When decorating a children’s room, you need to consider both the current age of your child and the changes in his character when he becomes older. Bright colors look attractive, but exaggerate the psyche of active children. Similarly, you should avoid wallpaper with an intricate color pattern and fabrics with predominant red and orange tones. All of them have powerful properties of yang, but for a normal healthy baby, there will be enough less bright, even muted colors.
Decorate the walls with pictures of your children or with toys that they made with their own hands. This will be a visual reminder of the development and creative achievements of your child.
Change of needs
When a child grows up, his bedroom turns from a nursery and playground into a teenage “den”. Priorities also change, and instead of free space on the floor for games, now the child needs more work space for his hobbies, homework, and computer.
Encourage reading by placing the table lamps next to the bed. The quest for knowledge can be stimulated by hanging a crystal in the north-eastern sector of the room, connected with knowledge and education.
Activating the western sector of ba-gua – “children’s luck” – has a beneficial effect on the overall health, behavior, and performance of your children. This direction is especially worthy of attention if the child looks unhappy or unhappy.
Using these simple methods of feng shui, you can make a children’s room a place for the healthy and harmonious development of your child.
Hanging toys often soothe small children, but you do not need to hang such a toy directly above the bed.
If the child’s door faces the bathroom or goes to the ladder, the child may become unruly or distracted. To avoid this, strengthen a small musical suspension above the door.
A strong wooden back of the bed creates a feeling of safety and security for the child.
Do not use bunk beds; a child who sleeps on the lower bed develops a feeling of anxiety and subconscious fear.
The computer monitor should be turned away from the bed, and the computer itself must be turned off at night to avoid electromagnetic stress.
If the room has a TV, turn the screen away from the baby bed or cover it with a cloth before going to bed.
