high and low energies

high energy tends to accumulate in high level places and low energy accumulates in low level places. that is one of the reasons why so many great spiritual cultures in the world have been located on the tops of mountains. It’s also why penthouse suites are so sought after, because the people who live in them have both a psychological and energetic advantage over the people who live below them.

It has also been found that people who live in mountains are generally happier and more optimistic than people who live in valleys, where energy tends to pool and coagulate. Valley people tend to experience more struggle in their lives and are more likely to experience depression. it’s much easier to feel elated on top of a mountain.

The way this relates to buildings is that low energy collects at ground level along with dust and etheric debris. so you might think that it is not a good idea to sleep on a mattress on the floor. however, sweeping or vacuuming cleans this up very effectively, so as long as the space is cleaned regularly, sleeping on floor level is fine from that perspective.

In Japan, it is traditional to sleep on a futon on a tatami floor. during the day the futon is rolled up and put away and then taken out again at night, as richard and i discovered when we stayed at a traditional japanese hotel, went out for the day and returned in the evening to find that our bed had disappeared they do this partly so that a room can be a multifunctional bedroom and living room, and partly to make sure the mattress doesn’t get damp underneath.

in bali, where i lived for 20 years, sleeping on the floor is also the norm, but only for people who can’t afford a bed. many don’t even have a pillow, they just sweep the floor, spread out a mat and sleep with their head in the crook of their arm. they mostly have great posture, healthy immune systems, and back problems are very rare. sleeping on the ground also develops a closer relationship with the energies of the earth and makes a person more grounded. The Balinese are a nation of deep-rooted people.

Those who can afford a bed usually prefer to sleep in one for the purely practical reason that it’s a tropical country and poisonous spiders, scorpions and other critters are less likely to step on them at night if they’re in a bed. elevated position. If you ever visit Bali, don’t worry. these dangers are not common in western-style hotels. but they are an everyday hazard in rural homes.

A traditional Balinese bed (the kind you find in villages, not hotels) has a wooden frame and a firm cotton kapok futon that isn’t treated with any of the highly toxic fire retardants that are now are legally required in the west. however, futons get damp if placed on the floor, so it’s best to use them only on a raised wooden bed so there is adequate air circulation around it. I slept on a pure cotton futon on a raised wooden bed for the 20 years I lived in Bali and still do to this day.

check underfloor wiring

In countries where houses are built with a maze of electrical wiring under the floorboards, there is another important issue to consider.

Underground wiring can emit high levels of electromagnetic fields (emfs) and sleeping on the floor will bring your body closer together, which can be a serious health hazard over time. in an apartment block, the floors will contain not only your apartment’s wiring circuit, but also the lighting circuits of the apartment below, which can double your exposure, especially in the case of ungrounded halogen lights (very popular these days).

The only way to test this is to use a reliable emf meter, like the emfields pf5.

so is it okay to sleep on a mattress on the floor?

So, to summarize, I would say that sleeping on a mattress on the floor is fine as long as the area is cleaned regularly, there are no poisonous insects, the floor is not wet, and you are not sleeping in an electromagnetic field of more than 0 .2 volts per meter.

in the west, however, humidity and/or high emfs at ground level generally make it impractical to do this for long.
