I am Carol Olmstead and my company is Feng Shui For Real Life. Today, I am showing you how to spring clear with Feng Shui. Now we are in the bedroom. In Feng Shui, we believe a bedroom should be for rest and romance only. That means we need to get the work out of here and anything that distracts you. So first let's take a look at what's on your night table. You should have just one book that you're reading, not a stack of books. It makes you feel like you have too little time to accomplish things. Let's remove everything that's work related from your night tables. The next thing to take a look at is what's around you to distract you from rest and romance. This laundry basket is certainly a distraction. Let's get it out of the bedroom. All the decoration around you should be romantic, paired and coupled to remind you of your relationship. So I recommend, we remove anything from your bedroom that relates to a past romance, especially a failed past romance and let's put things around you that are in pairs and remind you of what you and your spouse or your partner love to do together. And another thing when you are clearing your bedroom is to take a look at what you have under your bed. There is a tendency, when you are clearing the rooms, to shove it all under the bed. In Feng Shui, we recommend nothing under your bed, so the good energy can flow all around you and encourage good peaceful sleep and a good relationship. If you must store things under your bed because you don't have a lot of closet space, just be sure to store only soft clothes under your bed, soft things, not your exercise equipments that you never use. Feng Shui is all about moving energy in your home and some of the things, I have shown you today will help you move your energy this spring. But keep in mind that clutter clearing, removing things from your home that you don't need is good all year long and you can use these suggestions throughout the year.
