Creating Sanctuary : Passionate, Prosperous & Meaningful Living

An ideal master bedroom will enhance intimacy as well as provide an environment for relaxation, rest and rejuvenation. As such bedrooms are ideally yin in nature. Yin qualities are quiet, dark, soft, nurturing, introspective, receptive, etc.

If your budget only allows focus on one room of your home, make it the bedroom. Typically, a third of our lives are spent there. In addition, quality sleep is a key component to health and well-being.

Here are some tips to make your bedroom a place of nourishment, much like eating healthy food.



Place your bed in the command position. This means it is against a solid wall with a view of the entrance and not directly in front of the entrance. Ideally the solid wall is not shared with a bathroom.

Sleep with a supportive, solid wood or fabric headboard.

Purchase the most comfortable and high end mattress that your budget will allow. Ideally the mattress will not be made of materials that off gas noxious odors.

Use soothing, restful colors.

Place an inspiring piece of art, photos or message directly across your bed to end and start each day.

Close all doors.



Have an abundance of yang elements in your space. This includes all electronics, bright lights, mirrors, exercise equipment, work items.

Use your bedroom as a multi purpose space.

Hang heavy, ominous objects over the head of the bed.

Sleep under a large, heavy chandelier or beams.

Work in bed.

Store clutter.


Finally and most important, take good stuff into dream time!
