Sleep With Your Head Towards South

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.

One should avoid sleeping with his head to the north or west. We all know that our planet has a magnetic pole stretched from north to south with the positive pole at the north and the negative pole at the south. Now, health scientists tell us that we too have a similar magnetic stretch with the positive pole at the head and the negative one at the feet.

It is common knowledge that like poles repel and unlike poles attract not only scientific but also in social spheres. When we lay our heads on the north side, the two positive sides repel each other and there is a struggle between the two.

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

Additional Details

But 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.

Now we may realize why the ancient people said, that our intellect improves by east facing head or house, and life lengthens with the head facing south.

North brings disease and west dulls the brain. They gave us a few more healing hints for a healthy sleep. Never lie on one side for long. Keep changing.


  • Head to East: Benefits: Auspicious
  • Always make sure you put your head in the East direction as much as possible.Head to South: Benefits: Auspicious
  • The best position for sleeping is with the top of your head pointing to the south and feet pointing north.Head to North or 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.

The only problem with this logic is that if you were to draw a picture of the globe on paper and put an imaginary bar-magnet in the middle, the negative end would actually be on what we consider to be the north, or top side, and the positive end would be on the bottom. Think about it this way, the north arrow on a compass is positively charged and it points towards... the north. If opposite charges attract, then you can clearly see that we have been fooled by some simple logic all this time and that North is actually south and vice versa.

P.s. I learned this in a university physics 3 class, so you can trust its authenticity.

Casey...what you said is right, BAR MAGNET points to North , in the sence that there is an attraction / understanding between North Pole of earth and the North of Bar Magnet. So, like the same, if you place your head NORTH, there would be perfect sync between NORTH pole and Head....

what do you say...?

@ Casey:

Good to see your interest.Thanks for coming back to my blog and for posting your comment once again. My reply was due since long. Sorry for this delay.


Actually the mark 'North' on a Compass doesn't show the north of 'Compass Magnet' but the north of earth. The end where North is marked is actually south of the Compass Magnet.So,the attraction is still between the opposites and not between North Pole of earth and the North of Bar Magnet.

Earth's North pole: POSITIVE
Earth's South pole: NEGATIVE

Compass North Marked side: NEGATIVE
(which is actually the South pole of compass magnet
Compass South Marked side:POSITIVE
(which is actually the North pole of compass magnet)

Human Head-North pole: POSITIVE
Human Body South pole: NEGATIVE

I hope now the doubts are clear.
