Question ID: 770643
I have to do work on my computer in my bedroom, because I do not live
in a place that allows me to work elsewhere. Although I have been able
to adopt most of the feng shui advice, how harmful is it that I keep
some electronics (at my desk which is oposite the bed)
thank you very much.

Hi saragoza,

Thank you for an interesting question.  

Feng Shui for bedroom

"Among several Feng Shui rules involving the bedroom is that, if you
cannot keep the computer out of the bedroom, you should cover the
monitor with a piece of thick cloth before retiring for the night. The
convex screen of the monitor emits yang energy; energy you can feel if
you bring your hand close to the screen immediately after turning it
off. While the hand can sense it for a few moments, it remains active
for longer duration..

On a more practical level, the person who works on a computer ? or
even chats (or cheats?) ? brings his business/affairs/problems as
extra baggage in his love life. The transit is too quick and often
adversely affects the love life or sleep or both. The best thing is to
have a gap of at least half-an-hour."

Miscellaneous Items

"Electronic items don't promote sleep. Get the TV, hi-fi and computer
out of the bedroom. If this is impossible, cover them at night."


Center for Applied Feng Shui Research

"Because of severe space limitations, I have to have my desk and
computer in my bedroom. I have placed the computer in the east corner
and my bed in the west."


"It is understandable to find computers in the bedroom. Personally, I
also have 7 PCs connected in a network in my room. (No kidding!)

The main points to note are:-

1. Try to make sure that the edge of the computer table does not point
at the bed especially the head or body. This is considered adverse
sha. (poison arrow)

2. Most new computer monitors have `matt' finish or `anti-glare'
screens. This relates to the `problem' of having mirrors face a person
while he/she is asleep. According to many Feng Shui Masters to be bad.
If the screen is `non-reflective', this is a plus point.

Currently, I see no other `harm' in placing PCs in the bedroom.
However, there are some overly concerned Feng Shui practioners who
would advise their clients to place e.g. a lily or a cactus plant
behind their work area to `absorb' `bad' shar from PCs.

Personally, I don't think you need to do so as we have had TVs for
quite some time and the main interface is of the PC is also the VDU
screen (an equivalent or near equivalent of the TV set). There are so
far no known `ill effects' of TVs on us as yet.

You have asked whether it is ok to place the computer at the East
area. This is because, electrical items are considered a water
element. Under the 5 elements concept of the productive cycle
(reference: ../fs/5element.htm ) you will notice that WATER supports
Wood and is favourable to Wood element which is at the EAST location."

Feng Shui Tips

"Try to keep computers and televisions out of the bedroom. If you can
not keep them out of the bedroom try to hide them in a cabinet or
armoire that has doors that can be shut at night or cover the
television and computer monitors with screens or thick cloth at night
to block the yang energy that they emit. The bedroom should be full of
yin energy, not yang."

How about nice shoji-style folding room dividers to "close off" the desk area?
