4 min read. How to use Feng Shui to find your ideal sleeping position.

In feng shui, a traditional Chinese practice, the Kua number is used to determine an individual's auspicious directions for various activities. One of the most popular uses of the Kua number is for finding an ideal sleeping position that can promote better health, well-being, and peaceful sleep. In this article, we will explain how to calculate the Kua number and use it to find the ideal sleeping position.

Find your Feng Shui bed position

Step 1: What's your gender?

The first step in calculating your Kua number is to determine your gender. Feng shui uses a different formula for males and females.

Step 2: Add up the digits of your birth year

Next, add up the digits of your birth year. For example, if you were born in 1990, add 1+9+9+0, which equals 19. If the sum is a two-digit number, add the digits together to get a single-digit number. In this case, 1+9 equals 10, and then 1+0 equals 1. If you were born before the 4th February, you are the year prior. The kua number system is based on the Chinese calendar, which has a different first day of the year than Western calendars. The year starts at the first day of spring around the 4th of February (depending on the year, to make it a little more confusing, this is not the same day as Lunar New Year).

Step 3: Determine your Kua number

For females, subtract the result from Step 2 from 10. For males, add 5 to the result from Step 2. For example, if you were born in 1990 and are female, you would subtract 1 from 10, which equals 9. If you are male, you would add 5 to 1, which equals 6.

Step 4: Find your auspicious directions

Once you have determined your Kua number, you can use it to find your auspicious directions. There are four auspicious directions and four inauspicious directions for each Kua number. The auspicious directions are the ones that promote good health, success, and well-being. The inauspicious directions are the ones that should be avoided.

Using your Kua number to find your ideal sleeping position

Once you have calculated your Kua number, you can use it to determine the best direction for you to face while sleeping. Feng shui practitioners believe that different directions have different energy and can affect your well-being. Here are the recommended sleeping directions based on your Kua number:

Kua number 1: Face east

Kua number 2: Face northeast

Kua number 3: Face south

Kua number 4: Face southeast

Kua number 5: Face north

Kua number 6: Face northwest

Kua number 7: Face west

Kua number 8: Face southwest

Kua number 9: Face east

It's important to note that your ideal sleeping direction may differ depending on your specific circumstances, such as the layout of your bedroom and the position of your bed. It's also worth considering other factors that can affect your sleep quality, such as noise, light, and temperature and an organic, non-toxic pillow.

In conclusion, using your Kua number to find your ideal sleeping position is a simple and effective way to improve your sleep quality and overall well-being. By following the recommended sleeping directions, you can align yourself with the positive energy of the universe and promote health, happiness, and success in your life.
