Sleeping Directions and Its Benefits

Sleeping Directions and Its Benefits

Category : general , 2 years ago

Sleep plays a vital role in promoting physical health, longevity, and emotional well-being.  Physiologically, sleep is a complex process of restoration and renewal for the body. Generally when we sleep we don’t know which direction we need to place our head. The direction we sleep has a strong impact on our body.

Scientific Reason

The direction your head faces while sleeping has a strong effect on your physical and mental well-being. Head placement refers to the direction the top of your head points when lying down.  We are advised to avoid sleeping with our head to the north or west.

In many ways, the earth is engineered because of its magnetism. That’s how powerful the magnetic forces are on the planet.

When we lay our heads on the north side, the two positive sides repel each other and there is a struggle between the two.

Now, if you place your head to the north and stay that way for 5 to 6 hours, the magnetic pull will cause pressure on your brain.

Since the earth has a greater magnetic force, we are always the losers, and rise in the morning with headache or heaviness.

If you are beyond a certain age and your blood vessels are weak, you could have hemorrhages and paralytic strokes. Or, if your system is sturdy and these things don’t happen to you, you could get up agitated because there is more circulation in the brain than there should be when you are sleeping. 

It is not that if you do this for one day, you will fall dead. But if you do this every day, you are asking for trouble. What kind of trouble depends on how strong your system is?


Head to East: Auspicious. Always make sure you put your head in the East direction as much as possible.  It increases memory and concentration.  

Head to West: Good sleeping direction.  It gives Name, Fame and Prosperity according to vastu (Indian Ancient Science).

Head to South: Auspicious. The best position for sleeping is with the top of your head pointing to the south and feet pointing north.  It increases health, wealth and prosperous.

Head to North: It is in line with the earth's magnetic field and will create disturbance in human bodies which has high iron (hemoglobin) content and brings disease and west dulls the brain.

Head to North-West:  Results: Dangerous. Never sleep with the top of your head pointing to the north and feet pointing to the south. Brings terrible dreams and disturbed sleep. You will feel miserable. Irritability, frustration and emotional instability will develop. It sucks your positive vibrations while you sleep. You will lose 50% of your willpower and your soul power will not increase while you sleep. Your physical and mental health will suffer.

Interesting Facts

When we lay our heads in the southern direction, there is mutual attraction and we wake up fit, fresh and free, unless afflicted by some illness.

We also know that our planet revolves itself from west to east, and sun's magnetic field enters earth from east side. This magnetic force enters our head if we lie with head on the east and exits through feet, promoting cool heads and warm feet as per the laws of magnetism and electricity. When the head is laid towards the west, cool feet and hot head -- result -- an unpleasant start for morning.

Which is the best direction to sleep?

  • Head towards East – Best. 
  • Head towards West – Alright.
  • Head towards South – If you must. 
  • Head towards North or North-West– Worst.
  • Head towards North-East - OK.

Activate your body and brain

In the tradition, they also told you that before you get up in the morning, you must rub your hands together and place your palms upon your eyes. They said that if you do this, you will see God. It is not about seeing God.  Before you get up in the morning, you must rub your hands together and place your palms upon your eyes.

There is a heavy concentration of nerve endings in your hands. If you rub your palms together, all the nerve endings are activated and the system comes awake immediately.

When you wake up in the morning and still feel sleepy and drowsy, just do this and see, everything comes awake. Instantly, a whole range of nerves connected with your eyes and other aspects of your senses come awake. Before you move your body, your body and brain should be active. You shouldn’t get up dumb, that’s the idea.
