For over 4000 years the ancient art of Feng Shui has been used in homes and businesses in Asia and India. Using and applying the five elements in the form of Color such as red, yellow, green, and blue and white are a great way to move energy in one’s environment to create an energetic change.
Why use color? It has been proven that everything has a vibration. Every item, piece of furniture, artwork, including sound emits a vibration. These vibrations have a direct impact on the energy in our environments and also in our bodies.
When applying color in your environment think about what you want to achieve and where you are in your home in relationship to the color you are using. Do you want to rest and de-stress in the bedroom? Try using soft hues of blues (water) or green (wood) or cream (earth). If you are sleeping in a red (fire) bedroom and can’t sleep or relax then consider one of the calmer colors mentioned.
Do you want to feel comfortable or constantly inspired in your office? Maybe you would enjoy a red (fire) wall here. The color red is proven to increase heart rate and raise energy. If comfort is what you looking to feel then maybe try yellow or beige(earth).
Have fun with color and most of all notice the effect it has on how you feel. Does it make you feel happy, depressed, or uplifted and inspired? The best part is you get to choose and change!
