Feng Shui Hell in a Hotel Room

Feng Shui Hell in a Hotel Room

How many people leave this hotel room feeling ill, nervous, shattered, and spooked? I had my worst night's sleep in this room some years ago. I checked in quickly and rushed off to a meeting that ended late at night. When I returned, I was desperate to drop into bed and sleep. I had no time to feng shui the room.

During the night, I felt hyperactive, slightly ill, and scared, with a sense of foreboding. The next day I found out why.

The room was full of sha chi, mainly aimed at my bed: pointed picture frames and sharp-edged alcoves; the bed head was a large square, divided into smaller squares, with all the points aimed at me. The multiple images on the heavy wallpaper were two birds sitting on twigs. The twigs and the birds' beaks were pointed towards my bed.

A full-length mirror and television screen faced the bed. Thankfully, I had covered these up before sleep.

I felt predecessor energy in the room. Perhaps previous occupants had taken ill or had a severe problem in there. 

The room was bright yang plum and red - the sofa with oversized cushions, the bed valance and the carpet, giving a permanent buzz of yang energy.

A large pointed cushion was placed diagonally on the sofa so its point held court over the room. This had to be the room's ultimate poison arrow. But no, there was more!

A long main access road aimed directly at my room.

It was an absolutely horrid night, but what a wealth of Feng Shui material! It proved to me, yet again, how a person's surroundings can affect their wellbeing.

A bedroom needs calm yin energy for quality sleep. Yin colours are calming blue, balancing green, or pale shades of other colours, not bright ones that exude active yang energy. During the day, yang chi can help a person gain more energy, but during the night, it can keep them awake.

Predecessor energy is complex to remove from a hotel room, especially an old one, as this one was. Perhaps previous occupants of this room had also experienced uncomfortable feelings caused by the disturbing energy in the room, and their distressed energy was still in the room's atmosphere.

Mirrors and a shiny television screen create an energy buzz around the room, and if they reflect the bed, they aim it at the occupant. Both are disruptive for peaceful sleep.

Corners and angles of furniture or other objects, such as cushions, need to be rounded, even slightly, because chi energy hits points and sharp edges and bounces off them angrily, distressing anybody nearby. Tall points like that one large diagonal cushion aimed a menacing energy at me.

I could have covered all the points on the bedhead with a cloth and arranged the cushions so that points were softened and not standing upright. But I could not have done anything about the points in the twigs and the birds' beaks, (to say nothing of their beady eyes watching me) which were all over the wallpaper, nor the main road aiming directly at my room. If I had not been in such a hurry to check in and rush to my meeting, I would have asked to change rooms.

I would certainly not wish this room on anybody.
