Have you ever wondered why you have certain feelings do you have when you look at bright red rose in the garden? Imagine if the garden didn’t have colorful flowers but only the green foliage? How would you feel then?
Early in the morning when you see a newly opened flower in your garden, your heart is filled with joy and happiness. A white lily touches your soul for its serenity. A red rose, with its vibrant energy, elicits a feeling of love and passion. Why are these feelings evoked? Because each flower reflects a different color, causing it to have a unique hue that affects you in different ways. Feng Shui uses this natural magic of colors to transform your life.
A rose is red because it reflects red color. Feng Shui makes use of this reflected energy to create a balance between your yin and yang energies to suit your personality or your environment.
Think of yin energy as like a plant growing from the earth. It comes from the soil, raising itself upward and moving toward the sky. As yin energy moves up to the sky it becomes more diffused and dissipated. Yin energy is the passive energy. Yin energies have an element of dreaminess about them.Colors like blue, white, green and purple according to Feng Shui are believed to have yin energies.
If your home office is full of creative and dream-inducing objects or colors, Feng Shui may call for you to get rid of them (at least some of them) and use more vibrant colors in their place. Yang Feng Shui colors will help you get in the right spirit to do some work and be enthusiastic.
Every association you have with a color contributes in some way to how you are. That is why colors play a meaningful role within the practice of Feng Shui. It is very essential for you to understand why toning down or playing up certain Feng Shui colors in your home will help you to achieve the goals you have set for yourself in your life.
The guiding principle in using Feng Shui Colors should be to achieve balance rather than excess. Whether you are planning the color scheme of your home, office, garden or personal appearance, the following characteristics of the colors in Feng Shui practice will give you an insight into how they can be used in Feng Shui design.
