Five Tips to Rejuvenate Your Bedroom
Helpful​ ​tips​ ​for​ ​transforming​ ​your​ ​bedroom​ ​into​ ​a​ ​sacred​ ​lovemaking​ ​space. 

The​ ​bedroom​ ​is​ ​a​ ​place​ ​where​ ​we​ ​can​ ​feel​ ​safe​ ​and​ ​be​ ​vulnerable.​ ​In​ ​essence,​ ​a​ ​place​ ​that​ ​we​ ​can​ ​be​ ​ourselves in​ ​the​ ​presence​ ​of​ ​our​ ​lover.​ ​When​ ​creating​ ​a​ ​sacred​ ​bedroom​ ​we​ ​want​ ​to​ ​follow​ ​a​ ​few​ ​simple​ ​steps​ ​that​ ​will allow​ ​us​ ​to​ ​stimulate​ ​and​ ​rejuvenate​ ​the​ ​five​ ​physical​ ​senses;​ ​sight,​ ​hearing,​ ​touch,​ ​taste,​ ​and​ ​smell.

Clean​ ​First​ ​and​ ​Then​ ​Assess
Before ​we​ ​transform​ ​our​ ​bedroom​ ​into​ ​a​ ​sacred​ ​space,​ ​we​ ​need​ ​to​ ​give​ ​it​ ​a​ ​good​ ​old-fashion​ ​cleaning.​ ​A​ ​sacred space​ ​requires​ ​cleanliness​ ​and​ ​organization​ ​to​ ​be​ ​successful​ ​and​ ​remain​ ​invigorated.​ ​Declutter​ ​your​ ​bedroom​ ​– Clutter​ ​can​ ​scatter​ ​the​ ​mind​ ​and​ ​emotions.​ ​An​ ​unorganized​ ​space​ ​can​ ​also​ ​deplete​ ​the​ ​human​ ​energy​ ​field.​ ​Put items​ ​in​ ​their​ ​proper​ ​place.​ ​If​ ​there​ ​isn't​ ​one,​ ​create​ ​a​ ​place​ ​for​ ​random​ ​“things”.​ ​Once​ ​the​ ​physical​ ​space​ ​is​ ​clean. Clear​ ​the​ ​space​ ​energetically.​ ​We​ ​want​ ​to​ ​set​ ​our​ ​intention​ ​for​ ​the​ ​space​ ​and​ ​bring​ ​in​ ​our​ ​highest​ ​and​ ​best feelings​ ​of​ ​light​ ​and​ ​love.​ ​You​ ​can​ ​bless​ ​your​ ​space​ ​with​ ​sage​ ​or​ ​some​ ​other​ ​incense.​ ​“Saging”​ ​or​ ​“smudging” helps​ ​to​ ​rejuvenate​ ​and​ ​clear​ ​the​ ​stagnation​ ​of​ ​old​ ​energies.​ ​Chanting​ ​a​ ​mantra,​ ​repeating​ ​affirmations,​ ​or simply​ ​singing​ ​your​ ​favorite​ ​tune​ ​while​ ​cleaning​ ​can​ ​help​ ​clear​ ​the​ ​space. 

Once​ ​the​ ​bedroom​ ​is​ ​clean​ ​and​ ​clear,​ ​begin​ ​discussing​ ​with​ ​your​ ​partner​ ​how​ ​you​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​feel​ ​in​ ​the bedroom.​ ​Be​ ​specific!​ ​Some​ ​suggestions​ ​include:​ ​sensual,​ ​safe,​ ​warm,​ ​seductive,​ ​cozy,​ ​and​ ​sexual.​ ​Discuss​ ​ways to​ ​draw​ ​your​ ​attention​ ​to​ ​the​ ​five​ ​physical​ ​senses.

1.​ ​Sight
Now, ​that​ ​the​ ​bedroom​ ​is​ ​clean.​ ​Look​ ​around​ ​and​ ​assess​ ​whether​ ​or​ ​not​ ​it​ ​is​ ​visually​ ​pleasing.​ ​Perhaps​ ​adding​ ​a fresh​ ​coat​ ​of​ ​paint,​ ​buying​ ​new​ ​furniture,​ ​removing​ ​excess​ ​furniture​ ​or​ ​rearranging​ ​things​ ​can​ ​help​ ​transform​ ​the bedroom.​ ​Or​ ​perhaps​ ​incorporating​ ​potted​ ​plants,​ ​crystals,​ ​candles,​ ​and​ ​mood​ ​lighting.

Proper​ ​lighting​ ​is​ ​everything.​ ​It​ ​sets​ ​the​ ​mood​ ​from​ ​seductiveness​ ​to​ ​relaxation.​ ​It​ ​can​ ​make​ ​or​ ​break​ ​a​ ​sexy setting.​ ​The​ ​use​ ​of​ ​candles​ ​is​ ​always​ ​a​ ​great​ ​idea.​ ​However,​ ​LEDs​ ​have​ ​become​ ​inexpensive​ ​and​ ​come​ ​in​ ​a​ ​wide range​ ​of​ ​styles​ ​and​ ​changing​ ​colors.​ ​LEDs​ ​are​ ​safe​ ​and​ ​they​ ​can​ ​set​ ​the​ ​mood​ ​with​ ​a​ ​press​ ​of​ ​a​ ​button​ ​on​ ​a remote.​ ​​ ​​Personal​ ​Tip:​ ​​Wearing​ ​bedroom​ ​clothes​ ​can​ ​heighten​ ​the​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​sight;​ ​lingerie,​ ​silk​ ​robes,​ ​etc.

2.​ ​Hearing

Stimulate ​your​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​hearing​ ​with​ ​a​ ​plug-in​ ​mini​ ​fountain​ ​or​ ​speaker​ ​system​ ​for​ ​music.​ ​Make​ ​sure​ ​you​ ​have an​ ​easily​ ​accessible​ ​speaker​ ​system​ ​in​ ​the​ ​bedroom.​ ​There​ ​are​ ​a​ ​wide​ ​range​ ​of​ ​compact​ ​systems​ ​including cordless,​ ​battery​ ​powered​ ​“bluetooth”​ ​speakers​ ​on​ ​the​ ​market. 

Create ​several​ ​playlists​ ​that​ ​are​ ​accessible​ ​with​ ​the​ ​click​ ​of​ ​a​ ​button.​ ​Playlists​ ​can​ ​include;​ ​singing​ ​bowls,​ ​chakra tones,​ ​sacred​ ​chants,​ ​oceans​ ​waves,​ ​rain​ ​storms,​ ​water​ ​falls,​ ​downtempo​ ​mixes,​ ​ambient​ ​music,​ ​sexy​ ​tracks​ ​(the list​ ​of​ ​music​ ​choices​ ​are​ ​endless.)​ ​Music​ ​preference​ ​are​ ​different​ ​for​ ​everyone.​ ​Discuss​ ​genres​ ​of​ ​music​ ​that make ​you​ ​feel​ ​sexual​ ​and​ ​intimate​ ​and​ ​ones​ ​that​ ​relax​ ​and​ ​create​ ​peace.​ ​Remember​ ​to​ ​create​ ​playlists​ ​long enough​ ​to​ ​allow​ ​for​ ​continuous​ ​uninterrupted​ ​play.​ ​​Personal​ ​Tip:​​ ​Become​ ​conscious​ ​of​ ​the​ ​conversations​ ​that take​ ​place​ ​in​ ​the​ ​bedroom.​ ​Speak​ ​to​ ​one​ ​another​ ​in​ ​a​ ​kind​ ​and​ ​loving​ ​voice.

3.​ ​Touch
The ​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​touch​ ​can​ ​be​ ​everything​ ​from​ ​the​ ​room​ ​temperature​ ​to​ ​the​ ​introduction​ ​of​ ​sex​ ​toys.​ ​Raise​ ​the​ ​room temperature​ ​-​ ​Creating​ ​a​ ​temperate​ ​environment​ ​is​ ​essential​ ​for​ ​being​ ​comfortably​ ​naked.​ ​Embellish​ ​the​ ​bed preferably​ ​with​ ​satin,​ ​linen,​ ​or​ ​silk,​ ​change​ ​the​ ​sheets​ ​and​ ​add​ ​lots​ ​of​ ​fluffy​ ​pillows​ ​for​ ​sexual​ ​position​ ​support.

If​ ​you​ ​are​ ​so​ ​inclined;​ ​introduce​ ​some​ ​sexy​ ​toys.​ ​These​ ​can​ ​include​ ​feather​ ​ticklers,​ ​massage​ ​oils,​ ​motorized massages,​ ​vibrators,​ ​handcuff,​ ​blindfolds,​ ​etc.​ ​(the​ ​list​ ​is​ ​endless​ ​and​ ​only​ ​limited​ ​by​ ​your​ ​comfortability​ ​and imagination).​​The​​simple​​introduction​​of​​a​​body​​massager​​can​​ transform​​your​​play​​time​​together.​​​P​​ersonal Tip:​​ ​Reach​ ​for​ ​your​ ​partner​ ​and​ ​touch​ ​their​ ​skin​ ​often.

4.​ ​Taste
Moments ​ ​before​ ​you​ ​intend​ ​on​ ​spending​ ​time​ ​in​ ​your​ ​newly​ ​transformed​ ​bedroom;​ ​grab​ ​some​ ​tasty​ ​niblets​ ​of fresh​ ​fruits,​ ​nuts,​ ​and​ ​chocolates.​ ​Incorporate​ ​these​ ​tasty​ ​bits​ ​into​ ​your​ ​play​ ​time​ ​together.​ ​Open​ ​a​ ​bottle​ ​of​ ​wine and​​set​​out​​a​​large​​vessel​​of​​drinking​​water.
P​​ersonal​​ Tip:​​​Body​​cleanliness​​goes​​a​​long​​way​​to​​improving​​the taste​ ​of​ ​our​ ​skin.

5.​ ​Smell

This ​ ​sense​ ​is​ ​often​ ​left​ ​to​ ​the​ ​imagination.​ ​However,​ ​the​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​smell​ ​is​ ​closely​ ​connected​ ​to​ ​our​ ​sexual​ ​arousal. Natural​ ​senses​ ​can​ ​be​ ​more​ ​gentle​ ​on​ ​the​ ​nose,​ ​without​ ​distracting​ ​or​ ​irritating​ ​the​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​smell.​ ​Some suggesting​ ​include​ ​incense,​ ​essential​ ​oils,​ ​and​ ​naturally​ ​scented​ ​lotions.​ ​​Personal​ ​Tip:​​ ​Bathing​ ​together​ ​is​ ​a great​ ​way​ ​to​ ​freshen​ ​up​ ​and​ ​reboot​ ​our​ ​natural​ ​endorphins.

Further​ ​Thoughts
When ​ ​incorporating​ ​potted​ ​plants​ ​and/or​ ​a​ ​mini​ ​fountain,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​important​ ​to​ ​consider​ ​the​ ​effects​ ​they​ ​have​ ​on​ ​our finer​ ​or​ ​subtle​ ​energy​ ​fields,​ ​that​ ​which​ ​is​ ​beyond​ ​our​ ​five​ ​physical​ ​senses.​ ​Plants​ ​are​ ​sentient​ ​and​ ​they​ ​radiate​ ​a vibration​ ​and​ ​help​ ​to​ ​clean​ ​the​ ​air.​ ​Potted​ ​plants​ ​and​ ​running​ ​water​ ​can​ ​help​ ​invigorate​ ​and​ ​cleanse​ ​the​ ​vibration of​ ​a​ ​room.​ ​Plus,​ ​they​ ​can​ ​improve​ ​our​ ​moods​ ​simply​ ​by​ ​being​ ​there. 

The ​ ​creation​ ​of​ ​an​ ​altar​ ​space​ ​is​ ​a​ ​great​ ​way​ ​to​ ​transform​ ​the​ ​bedroom.​ ​Altars​ ​are​ ​resting​ ​places​ ​for​ ​our intentions​ ​and​ ​spiritual​ ​aspirations.​ ​An​ ​altar​ ​can​ ​be​ ​as​ ​elaborate​ ​or​ ​a​ ​simple​ ​as​ ​you​ ​desire.​ ​Embellish​ ​your​ ​altar with​ ​objects​ ​that​ ​you​ ​find​ ​to​ ​be​ ​sacred.​ ​Incorporate​ ​objects​ ​that​ ​help​ ​you​ ​to​ ​connect​ ​with​ ​your​ ​partner​ ​and​ ​the divine​ ​universe.​ ​Examples​ ​can​ ​include;​ ​incense,​ ​crystals,​ ​statues,​ ​pictures,​ ​candles,​ ​objects​ ​from​ ​nature,​ ​flowers, seashells,​ ​pinecones,​ ​rocks,​ ​leaves,​ ​seeds,​ ​etc.​ ​Suggestions​ ​for​ ​an​ ​altar​ ​space​ ​can​ ​include;​ ​a​ ​small​ ​cabinet,​ ​side table,​ ​corner​ ​shelve,​ ​or​ ​a​ ​windowsill. 

It ​ ​is​ ​important​ ​to​ ​remember​ ​these​ ​are​ ​just​ ​suggestions.​ ​A​ ​sacred​ ​space​ ​must​ ​feel​ ​right​ ​to​ ​the​ ​both​ ​of​ ​you.​ ​It​ ​is important​ ​to​ ​discuss​ ​and​ ​agree​ ​on​ ​how​ ​you​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​create​ ​a​ ​pleasing,​ ​inviting,​ ​and​ ​safe​ ​space​ ​together. Envision​ ​your​ ​bedroom​ ​as​ ​a​ ​sacred​ ​temple.​ ​Remember​ ​a​ ​successful​ ​sacred​ ​space​ ​is​ ​contingent​ ​on​ ​the stimulation​ ​of​ ​all​ ​five​ ​of​ ​your​ ​physical​ ​senses;​ ​sight,​ ​hearing,​ ​touch,​ ​taste,​ ​and​ ​smell.
