Enjoyed this - first time meeting you. A year ago I moved the bed away from the window which was also opposite the door. I felt safer. I'm about to rearrange it into the corner so it's angled and still in a command position.

for the last 2.5 yrs I had my bed in the gate keeper position, I never slept a full night, waking almost every hour, and I would wake absolutely exhausted and depressed. I looked at my room yesterday and didnt realise I actually had the space to move to the bed to a command position which i DID. As soon as I got into bed I was incrediably sleepy, (another problem of mine was actually getting to sleep) and for the first time I slept throughout the whole night and woke feeling sooo energised I just had to paste it on facebook... I hope the rest of my life starts changing so dramtically too.. Thanks ken

So glad to hear that you were able to move your bed to a command position and were able to get a full night's sleep. Way to take action! Keep up the great progress.

Hi Ken,  
Thanks for this :) 
Quick Q: What is the ideal ornament to put over the bed, i.e. on the headboard wall - Painting? Mirror? 
I know that the artwork must be relevant for our wishes too... if that makes sense..

What if the shape of your room doesn't allow for your bed to be put in a command position?

Nakita, If you are not able to see the door, then place a mirror in a position so that you are able to be in bed and see the door by looking in the mirror. For other situations, I share in a 1-on-1 consultation as they are customized to each unique situation.

It really depends per user and bedroom. If you have a bed with a large headboard, then I would keep the focal point on the bed and would not distract from it. If you don't have a headboard, I would consider purchasing one before you purchase any art. The headboard should be solid and firmly attached to the bed. I personally would not put a mirror over the head of the bed due to the weight.  
Again, it depends what you want as your focal point. Many feel if they have space, then they need to fill it with something. Don't feel like you have to put something there. However, if you do, consider outdoor scenery art.

Great Video. You gave me a lot to think about when arranging furniture in my bedroom. My room is small, but there are adjustments I can make that you suggested. Just a question about a closet. The side of the bed that my husband sleeps on his feet will face towards the sliding doors on the closet. His feet and legs bother him a lot. We keep the closet doors shut, but would that cause any issues with this feet and legs and if so what could I do to remedy that? Thanks. Such a great video. As always you have so much wonderful information. God Bless and wishing you good luck and good fortune in all that you do.

Moved my whole room around last week Tuesday. Bed was in the gatekeeper position, now is in the command position. Have a walkway around all sides of the bed, and the headboard is up against the right hand wall. Moved the dressers around, removed exercise equipment, added a plant; a money tree plant to be exact lol. The room feels better when you walk in, so thats good. The sleep part, I am not sure. I guess I will have to pay closer attention over the next couple if days. Thanks Ken for your insight and support!

Thank you for the comment. Typically, a closet will not create health problems. Although it may be nice to keep the door closed to help reduce anxiety due to seeing many different things and could create mental stimulation. 
You may want to look under the bed to see if there are any items under the bed in those areas of pain.  
You may also wish to consider a 1-on-1 consultation with me to review your space where you can provide pictures of the space and we discuss in further detail. Visit http://www.kenlauher.com/ultimate-feng-shui-makeover-package/ to learn more.

Well its been about 3 weeks since I changed my room around and moved the bed from the gatekeeper position to the command position, and I still feel as though I don't fall asleep right away, but once I do I feel like I'm sleeping like a log. Should I change the direction of the bed? Or is it a matter of getting used to? My command position puts the bed in the right hand corner of the room and currently I have the head board against the right hand wall. I can move it to the wall facing opposite the doorway in the right hand corner but the room isn't large enough to not see out into the hallway from that position. Not a fan of putting the bed on an angle. Any ideas or suggestions?

Glad to hear that you're able to sleep through the night once you do get to sleep. I personally would recommend that you keep your bed in the command position.  
The amount of time it takes to get to sleep can be a lot of different factors including diet, exercise, stimulation, temperature, humidity, etc. I know the book, 4 Hour Body, has many pages that are dedicated to this topic that may be a good resource for you.

This video has changed my life! I had my bed against in the corner in the gate keeper position and I have been so tiered and could not figure out why. I have since then moved it and been able to wake up without an alarm. I do have one question, I have a day bed what would be the ideal position for my bed?

Thank you so much for sharing this. Comments like these are one of the reasons I share this information with others. Thank you! 
Regarding the day bed, a day bed in Feng Shui is considered to be more of a temporary bed and is not as ideal. The best practices is that a bed has four legs, a solid headboard and be placed in a command position. You may wish to consider getting a different bed in the future. Until then, I would try to place the day bed against a wall in one of the command positions.

Will be rearranging my bedroom this weekend. Bed is currently in gatekeeper position and has been for years. To put in in the command position will be placing it in front of windows.but the headboard is huge, can't wait to see if this makes a difference.
