Why Family Photos In The Bedroom is Bad Feng Shui


Feng Shui BedroomA common Feng Shui bedroom mistake is displaying photos of family, friends and children in the bedroom. In Feng Shui, this is considered a big No No.

The bedroom is for two things and they both start with the letter "S." Consider your bedroom to be your personal oasis and romantic hideaway that should encourage intimacy, romance and communication. A place that is nourishing where you can rest, revitalize and reflect.

Photos, pictures or images of single people in the bedroom can indicate loneliness. It's possible to feel lonely and insecure even if you're married. To correct this, hang a picture of a couple or display pairs of objects.

Some believe that pictures of children or relatives may appear to be staring at you and cause additional anxiety, worry or lack of focus. Others believe that it will cause your mind to be thinking of others when it should be focused on you, your companion and your beauty rest.

I personally have experienced a different situation with regards to family photos. I recently was providing a Feng Shui consultation for a client that had 50 photos of family members directly opposite the bed. Energetically, it felt like static electricity on the body or similar to what you may feel when you have a balloon close to your arm.

Out of all the photos on the wall, one picture stood out to me and had a very strong energy around it that I could feel. I asked my client about the photo and why this particular family photo may be giving off such a heavy energy. The response was that photo contained relatives from the other side of the family and they never liked all the others on the wall.

If you're not truly ready to remove all the photos of family, friends and children in the bedroom, I recommend that you just try removing them for a week and see how your bedroom and the space feels. Consider replacing those photos with loving pictures of you and your companion. If you're not currently seeing anyone, consider adding pairs of items or fresh flowers in the bedroom.

What about photos of pets? We have 1 photo of deceased dogs in the bedroom. I've never felt anything bad from it.

if not in the bedroom, where else can we put family pictures? in the living room? we live in an apartment.

Yes, the living room is the appropriate place. The living is also a place where you add conversation pieces, family photos, travels, etc. Many other areas in the home can be added as well, just suggested not to have them in the bedroom.

Hemant - As the article suggests, I do not recommend placing pictures of children in the bedroom. As a result, I do not advise any wall/ direction for placement in the bedroom. Consider hallway, living room, family room, entry.

Sir, So can we place a family photo (Hubby, myself and my 6 yr old son) on the western wall of our living room ina metal frame ? I think that is more than fine for putting a family photo of the three of you in a metal frame there.

I read that it is not good to have any water elements (real or pictures) in your bedroom. But my bedroom is my wealth and prosperity center and that is where water should go.... what can I do?
Posted @ Wednesday, October 28, 2009 1:44 PM by Bettina
Bettina, there are always numerous ways to address an issue. The concept of the water is that it should be water that is moving. One reason why you don't want water in the bedroom from the mundane standpoint is that it may keep you up at night. The bedroom is yin energy, moving water is yang, so it offsets the yin of the room, which is not always desirable. Other remedies include the use of mirrors, coins, flutes, vases, crystals, etc. You can also look at your lot if possible and do something on the outside of your home in the wealth area. Keep in mind that everyone wants to adjust the wealth corner, but what do you really want to accomplish. For some, it is managing their money better, for others, cut down on expenses, for others, health should be the priority.

can i place pictures of my deceased sister amongst the rest of my relatives and friends ?
Posted @ Sunday, June 19, 2011 2:32 PM by yvonne
Yvonne, I think that is fine as long as it is not in the bedroom and you don't become overwhelmed with emotion over long period of time every time you see the picture.
