Are you exposed by a beam?

Have a look up and see if you are exposed  by a beam at your desk while you are working or perhaps while you are sleeping. If your bed or Desk is under an exposed beam then you could be exposed.

 If you find yourself feeling a little squished, look up… Do do you sleep under a Beam?

In some homes you have bedrooms in the attic, for example,  that is funky and modern architecture design, however, a Bedroom or Office with a slanted ceiling creates suppressed energy or chi above you. It may look cool however it is considered bad feng shui and bad for your health if not remedied.

Why should you care if you are exposed?

Suppressed energy creates many health problems, such as headaches, and other physical symptoms from spending too much time beneath beams in the home.

Here are some pretty obvious issues you may experience with working or sleepting under big old exposed Beams.

  1. Sleeping Under an exposed Beam can cause severe illness
  2. Working under an exposed Beam, you will have a difficult time concentrating and therefore achieving your full potential in the business world.
  3. Impact on wealth and opportunities.
  4. Headaches and other minor ailments.
  5. Lack of quality sleep, which affects our overall health.
  6.  Standing Beams with protruding corners can disperse chi and can cause problems in any section where they are. eg conflict and divorce, loss of money, lack of education etc.. you can camouflage the edges by putting plants in front of them.


Exposed ceilingbeams represent strong channels for chi, which causes a negative effect in the home, just like rushing energy from bookshelves and long hallways. Chi likes to flow gently around us.

 Sensitive people can experience headaches and other physical symptoms from spending too much time beneathbeams in the home.
