One third of our life is spent on sleeping. Not only is it a comprehensive chunk of time, but it is such a time that is spent unconsciously. We are most vulnerable when we sleep, most inclined towards subtle influences that our waking minds might shrug off. Because of all these components, feng shui bed placement immense importance on where a bed is placed in the room, or more specifically, the direction the bed is pointing to.
The "direction" of a bed can be crucial. The direction of the bed is the direction an arrow would be pointing if you are lying in the bed and the head of the arrow is where your head is and your feet are the end of the arrow. There are two types of directions applicable with feng shui bed placement. The first is the direction the bed is pointing, and another is which part of the room (North, South, East and West) the bed is virtually in. Of the two, the pointing direction is of utmost importance, but its impact can be catapulted or diminished by where the bed is placed in the room. There is in fact a third direction which plays a role, though it doesn’t matters that prominently, and that is the complete room's placement in relation to the rest of the house.
Now that the placement of bed is clear, here are the nine important directions and what each one is considered to be in terms of bed placement.

Avoid the bristly, unstable energy of the North-East during sleeping. This direction is basically not good in feng shui, but sleeping facing this direction would be particularly bad. It could lead nightmares. The only time when it would help you is if you want to get motivated, a real spike of motivation. But don't place the bed facing North-East for too long.

A South-facing bed is great if you want to have a fabulous weekend romantic retreat, but at the same time you don't wish to stay in this direction for longer. It is too busy, full of high energy. You may end up conflicting with people from this position. At times, you require extra confidence and the confidence to stand up and argue.

Income and love lie to the West direction. It’s a good place to be. There's also a great sense of contentment, which will give you a good sleep. But, like the South-West, the West energy may be severely mellow for you if it is a time in your life when you require mustering courage and go. This position is ideal for "lie back and take it easy" attitude.
