The Cyclical Nature of Chi
Feng shui was born of the Chinese Masters who observed the strength and weakness of the chi (life force). The ancient Chinese were also keenly aware that everything moves in cycles, and that everything is in motion, all the time: the earth, the mood, the sun and planets.
In Feng Shui, each color defines the movement of time and space, and age of the chi (life force) that is present.
For example, black moves very slow. White goes fast.
What is white? White is a combination of all the colors in the spectrum. Use white when you want to bring in a crispness and cleanness into any environment.
Black and white used together is good in an accounting office. The energies between black and white will make accountant’s job easier because it will give him or her a better opportunity to work accuratly.
Defining Your World With Color
Feng shui also defines our world with color.
In Feng Shui the North is associated with the color black. In America, the Northern region and the North East is typically cold. There’s snow, ice, and sunshine, but even the sunshine is really cold.
Green is associated with spring, when the earth is bright, alive and vibrant. Green is thunder that wakes everything up and brings forth grass and hay for the animals to eat.
Red is fire. In Feng shui, red represents the arts, drama, passion, as well as fame and fortune. Red is also a beautiful fire that starts as an ember before it turns into roaring flames.
The color of metals is also important in feng shui to bring strength and coolness into your environment.
Use Color to Fuel Your Environment
Hot, cold, warm. The colors you have in your room can feed a conversation in a cyclic way. Even though we can’t see the energy created by a particular color, our bodies can feel the vibration associated with that color.
Color can also be used to fuel creativity, or facilitate rest and relaxation. Whatever environment you are trying to create for your living space or working space, color can help to define the life force that is present, and have it work to your benefit.
When used well, color brings us back to the center. It brings up back to the earth.
Which Color Should You Use?
The ‘right’ color, strategically placed in you home or office will help bring about the change you are looking for, so it’s important to first determine what outcome you are trying to achieve.
For example, are you looking for…
- Rest and relaxation?
- Financial abundance?
- A cooperative work environment?
- Lively conversation?
- All of the above or something else?
Depending upon what you want to achieve, a Feng Shui expert will work with you to choose the best colors to support your needs.
