The best bedroom colors are skin tones, including beiges, browns, pinks, yellows, reds, and violets in pastel or deep shades. When dominant, pure white, black, gray, blue, and cool greens will make a bedroom seem chilly and less inviting.
To encourage the Ch’i to flow into your home, place directional water features so that the water flows toward the house or into the room. Or, choose a style that flows or bubbles 360 degrees. Clean water in bowls, pools, and urns are an easy-care alternative to moving water features.
Do all the good you can
By all the means you can
In all the ways you can
In all the places you can
At all the times you can
For all the people you can
As long as ever you can
- John Wesley’s Rule

“One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making new discoveries.” — A. A. Milne, from Winnie the Pooh
Or as Calvin, of the Calvin and Hobbes comic series says, “There’s treasure EVERYWHERE!” And haven’t we all had those delightful moments when we reach into the pocket of last year’s winter coat and ﬁnd a stash of money, or those long-lost earrings.
My own home is a comfy blend of tidy and disordered, so I get the best of both worlds–reassuringly Known and the strange Unknown, side by side. And residing in the mystery of the Unknown are all of the leprechauns and fairies that steal and relocate my things. Those imps, what a teasing dance they lead me in sometimes– “now, where are those car keys?….I set them RIGHT HERE last night.”
Begin by keeping the drains closed when not in use. Although especially important with the toilet because of its large opening, all drains can pull the Ch’i down to some extent. Close the sink, shower, and bathtub stoppers when you’re not using them, or cover them with small rubber mats.
Make your bed “the King or Queen” of your bedroom. Although a multipurpose bedroom may be practical, it is not the slightest bit romantic. To attract a partner, make room for romance by putting your exercise equipment, television, desk, and computer in other rooms. If any of these items have to stay in your bedroom, screen or cover them attractively when not in use so that your bed commands your bedroom.
