Sleeping with your head to the North

Sleeping with your head to the North, is generally ill advised in our tradition.

One of my thoughts is that this has something to do with the earth’s magnetic field.

I read in the Scientific American that strong magnetic fields of about 2Tesla, 30,000 times stronger than the earth’s magnetic field slowed the brain response down by 30%.

Maybe there is a cumulative effect of the low magnetic field that has not yet been investigated?


1. For the past three years I have noticed that bugs (bees and mosquitoes) and birds wish to enter my northern doors and windows and wish to exit through my southern windows. If I don’t open the southern windows, they just stick around in there, near the window and will not go out the way they came.

2. The Pharoahs were buried with their heads to the north and feet to the south as evidenced by their sacrophagi. There are also customs in India that associate sleeping with one’s head to the North with death.

3. However it is auspicious to Pray with one’s face to the east, north-east and north.
