Feng Shui Diva's Tips For Better Grades

It's an age old problem with an ancient solution: how to get our kids to do better in school. The answer is feng shui and it's as simple as moving your child's bed, removing negatives and adding positives.  If you keep doing the same thing,  you'll get the same result.   If you've tried punishing them, grounding them, taking away their video games and ipod, bribing them or tutoring them and you aren't getting the result you want -- then it's time to try something different.  Here are some quick tips to help make your child's room more positive for academic success.

Point Your Child's Bed In A Positive Sleeping Direction 
We all have 4 positive and 4 negative sleeping directions based on our year of birth and gender.  The goal is to align the child's bed so that the top or crown of the head is pointed towards one of their positive compass directions .  Be sure to use a compass to determine actual compass directions in your home. 

Get More "Dark" At Bedtime
Melatonin is a hormone your body produces that regulates sleep and mood.  Melatonin is produced at night in the dark.  Light makes your body think it’s daytime.  So don’t sleep with the lights on, or the TV or a night light.  Keep the bedroom dark for sleeping so your body can produce the natural melatonin you need for better sleep and mood.

Limit Your Child's Exposure to EMFs
EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) are electric and magnetic fields that surround electric devices like computers, TVs and power strips.  Too much exposure to EMFs can give you “brain fog” and make it hard to concentrate on studies and tests.  EMFs also reduce melatonin levels.  You can reduce your exposure to EMFs by keeping your body at least one foot away from your computer tower, transformer plugs, and power strips

What Your Child Sees: 
Kids need to know that they are loved, they are part of the family and the community, and they can achieve their goals.  Happy family photos remind kids they are part of a family that loves them.  Team or school pictures help create a sense of community.  And certificates, trophies and awards remind kids that they can accomplish what they set out to do.  All of these things are positive symbols to help give your child a psychological boost.

De-Clutter To Keep The Energy From Getting Stuck
A cluttered room is like a hairy swimmer.  Just like body hair creates resistance in the water for the swimmer, clutter creates resistance to the natural flow of energy in a room.  Stuck energy from too much clutter can make your child feel stuck, procrastinate or even get depressed. And they won't be able to focus on their studies in a lot of clutter.
