Richmond, Va:  It's an age old problem with an ancient solution: how to encourage kids to do better in school. The answer is feng shui and it's as simple as moving your child's bed. Feng Shui is the 4,000 year-old Chinese practice of arranging our living space to be in harmony with the earth's energy or "chi" so we are in balance with the forces of nature. This energy flows through our homes and when you know a little bit about feng shui, you can take advantage of the good energy and benefit from it.

Why the Sleeping Direction is Important
There are eight compass directions (N, S, E, W, NE, NW, SE, SW). Each child has four good compass directions and four bad compass directions, determined by their year of birth and gender. We spend the most amount of time in one spot every day in our bed, and the sleeping direction is very important because energy constantly flows to us as we sleep. The goal is to align the child's bed so that the top or crown of the head is pointed towards one of their good compass directions.

Each of these four good directions has a different kind of beneficial result associated with it: Wisdom, Marriage & Family Harmony, Health, and Wealth. Sleeping your child pointed towards "Wisdom" direction will help them get better grades and improve their attitude about school. They still have to do the work but it will be easier for them to achieve their goals. Room colors and clutter also affect your child, but adjusting the bed for the best sleeping direction is an easy feng shui application that any parent can do. You can find your child's best compass directions at in the "Feng Shui For Kids" section. The information is free so why not give it a try and send them back to school "Feng Shui'ed" for better grades.
