Assess Hotel Room Feng Shui And Feel Safe

On my recent travels it occurred to me that the prerequisite for a happy and successful trip is feeling safe all along the way. Every time I crossed the threshold of a hotel room, I had an instant sensation of comfort or discomfort. My aha moment came when I realized that this strange feeling had to do with the variable feng shui aspects of each and every room.

When traveling we spend on average one third of each day in our hotel room. Even while sleeping, our unconscious mind is exposed to negative or positive feng shui in the space surrounding us. Therefore a basic checklist for feng shui awareness might be a helpful tool for future travel adventures. Qi, yin & yang, tao connections as well as ba gua considerations all have potential impact on our well-being while away from the sanctuary of our home.

Mobility (easy moving qi)

Pack light! Porters are a rare species about to be extinct. If you cannot move about easily with your own set of wheels, you are stuck in a serious dilemma of sha qi. Roller bags with multi-directional spin allow you to move quickly, which could be crucial if you sense imminent danger. With light weight baggage you’re independent as you navigate through trains and public venues.

Room Request (tao connection) 분당룸싸롱

Inquire whether you have options for your room location. Optimally you want to be on a lower floor, not too far from the elevator, on the quiet side of the hotel. If necessary, you could take stairs to go down. On a lower floor you feel more connected to the world around you.

Comfort (yin & yang)

If your travels require maximum energy levels for daytime activities or business, your hotel room should give you nighttime reprieve with a yin ambiance. Upon arrival check whether you have adequate supplies of blankets and pillows, robes and slippers, bottled water and coffee/tea makers. Check thermostats for temperature settings, as well as remotes for TV and clock radio functions. Bring a soft shawl or scarf.

Light (yin & yang)

Familiarize yourself with general lighting and switches for lamps. Check outlets for plug-ins to connect computers, chargers and adapters. Be well-informed about internet services and passwords. Know the function of the flashlight on your mobile phone. For the event that the bathroom does not have a night light, an e-candle within easy reach on your night table will provide adequate vision if you’d rather not turn on a sleep-disturbing bright light that causes your pupils to dilate. If blue light power buttons and switches are annoying, drape your shawl over the device. Check function of drapes, curtains and blinds and use to your discretion.
