The ancient Indian astrological science of ‘Vastu’ gives much importance to the position of bedrooms in a house. This is because each day in a person’s life starts while he or she wakes up after a night’s sleep in this particular room.
So, naturally, there should be sufficient air and proper circulation in the bedroom to derive the positive energy and drive to tackle the challenges which may emerge during the course of the day.
As per the traditional knowledge, the position of the master bedroom should be on the south-west side of the house. Moreover, the windows and doors of this room have to be designed in such a way that breeze from outside enters the house from south or west and flows to the east or north. The master bedroom is to be used ideally by the owner of the house or the eldest son.
Astrology also suggests the favourable spot in the bedroom where precious items like money, jewellery and important documents have to be kept. The best place is the southwestern corner of the master bedroom and a cupboard for storing these items can be placed here with its door opening towards the north.
Another key aspect that brings positive energy to you is the correct position while sleeping. The most beneficial way to retire for the day is by keeping the head on the eastern or southern side. This would enable you to face the sun while waking up in the morning. However, remember to turn to the right side of the bed while getting up.
Fixing mirror, TV
Vastu makes yet another suggestion regarding the bedroom and it is related to the placement of a mirror. A mirror should never be fixed facing the south or west and also ensure that it does not reflect the bed.
Some people place a television also in the bedroom. Here too, avoid the reflection of the bed on the TV screen.
