All human beings have, according to Feng-Shui, four favorable personal geographic orientations, which enhance different aspects of our life and four other unfavorable ones. To make the correct calculations when applying the theory of energy balance of Feng-Shui, it is necessary know the child's date of birth, to orient your bedroom and the furniture that we are going to place in it, depending on the characteristics of the person who is going to occupy it.
Ana Postigo, a chartered naturopath and expert Feng-Shui consultant, explains to Guiainfantil.comWhat details do we have to take into account when decorating our child's room so that the energy flows in a sinuous and harmonious way.
What colors should predominate in children's rooms both on the walls and on the furniture?
Neutral colors are more suitable and we will never get confused with them. We can provide color through cushions, bedspreads or curtains, according to the use of the 5 Chinese elements, that that space needs in a concrete way.
What colors should we not use with caution?
For example, blue. It is a nice and soft color, but so much, that in excess on the wall, it can turn the child into a lazy person since it lowers the vibration of the bedroom and can even give a thermal sensation of cold. It is a color that cools relationships. To give another example, a child who by his date of birth belongs to the Fire element and we paint his bedroom blue, which belongs to the water element, we can have a conflict.
Water (blue color) within the 5 Chinese elements extinguishes Fire (the child himself in his element). The colors in the bedrooms are to be used correctly, since without knowing it, we can make this cycle of colored elements not "work" in the most adequate way, giving rise to problems due to chromaticism, from the point of view of Feng-Shui . Therefore, if you do not have a Feng-Shui done at home, painting the child's room in a neutral color, you will not be confused.
Where should we place the study table and bed in the room of a child over three years of age?
This is something that cannot be done randomly. In order to accurately locate the bed and table in a child's bedroom, you need to know their date of birth. This is the right thing to do and what guarantees the best for children and adults. However, there are some simple rules to observe. First, we will position your bed with the headboard facing a solid wall so that your feet are not facing the front door.
Then, if possible, we will not share the same space to sleep and study, as this can be confusing. If this is not possible, we will prevent the child from looking out the window towards the street, as he is sitting, because he will be distracted. The best thing to do is to sit him down, protecting his back with a solid wall or with a chair whose backrest is higher than the child's head. In this way, you get protection on your back. The table is in front and the child can look towards the center of the room.
How can we separate the study area from that of games or rest in a standard room of 8 square meters?
If the child is very young, it is not necessary to separate, since he will go from one activity to another with total ease. The separation of both zones is necessary when you need to concentrate to do your schoolwork better.
Depending on how your bed and table are located, we can place, as a separating screen, a piece of furniture, an object and even a beautiful and light screen, which is not too high, to separate these activities. When he studies, his separation is placed and when it is time to play or sleep, it is removed. This can be a practical solution, but you should always look at the particularities of Feng Shui of that specific house.
Bunk beds are practical because they save space. But, are they recommended from a Feng Shui point of view?
Indeed, the bunk beds save space, but they represent an unstable element from the point of view of Feng-Shui.
The child who sleeps below, unconsciously, has the feeling that something is going to fall on him and the brother who sleeps above, although well protected with railings and stairs, thinks deep down that he is going to fall. In practice, although at first they seem funny and funny, from my experience, I can say that in the end nobody wants to sleep in the bunk.
What should never be missing in a child's room?
A symbol that emits protection can never be lacking, regardless of the religion to which we belong. A little angel or a buddha are symbols of protection for the baby or the child in his room.
What are the decorative elements that should always be absent?
Scary objects should never be part of a child's bedroom and parents often don't realize this. When the boys grow up and by age they become rebellious, we must not allow black colors, pictures of skulls, which emit the energy of death, swords, knives, pistols and everything that can be aggressive because it raises aggressiveness .
Feng-Shui harmonizes with the symbols and, what we have at home, is something that is emitting energy. And if I have it in my child's room and it emits aggressiveness, it will permeate the child.
Another thing that we should not have in the room, or in the rest of the house, They are photographs of the child from when he was a baby, if now the child is older. They could always be kept on top of these photos with others with the child's current age.
The current age emits growth and each year having a photo of the current age is "updating" the child's energy. I have seen houses with huge photos of the 3-month-old child and now that child is 23 years old. It's as if, symbolically, we don't let it grow. The excess of photos is not good, and if you have them, you have to update them to enhance the maturity and growth of that child.
