Here's why I ask.
When I first moved into the parsonage, I had my bed facing east-west. I wasn't accustomed to living on a busy, main road, though, so I felt a sense of anxiety every time a car or truck went by, which was often. I felt like the rushing sound made me want to sit up in bed.
So I moved my bed between two windows with my head to the street, my feet facing away from the street, north-south. I felt like my position somehow broke the energy of the cars rushing by, since I was no longer lying parallel to the street outside.
In January of 2005 I began to have fairly regular anxiety attacks. I found that anxiety almost inevitably kicked in just as I was on the verge of falling asleep, and I would wake up with my heart pounding, fearful of the house around me.
I cut out caffeine, started exercising more regularly, and cut out eating much sugar (and especially at night). My daytime anxiety attacks got much more manageable, but I would still feel very keyed up at night, and still awoke frequently with panic attack symptoms (feeling of smothering, blurred vision, disorientation, sense of unreality, etc.) that I managed with breathing techniques.
When I noticed that even at my most wonderfully happy and relaxed this summer I still slept badly in my own bed, although I slept absolutely soundly anywhere else, I decided to read some feng shui pointers. I discovered that my bedroom is just bad for bed placement, as there are windows or closets or other interferences that make it impossible to place a queen sized bed where the feng shui experts recommend. But I did my best to choose the best spot according to feng shui principles, and moved the bed again (actually, back to where I had it when I first moved in).
I slept well that night and have not had any panic attack symptoms since.
Was it all psychological? Was I wrapped in some kind of bad enchantment that needed to be broken? Or is there something to this feng shui stuff?
