Colors, Meanings and Feng Shui


Colors affect people in different ways.  By using the right colors, the elements of Feng Shui can be strengthened.  These wonderful colors are divided into cool – or Yin, and warm – or Yang.  The goal is to achieve Yin Yang balance at all times, as all things possess these two components.

Aside from Yin colors representing water and metal, Yin also represents healing and relaxation.  To give you an idea, here are the colors.

Blue:  Blue reflects love.  It also creates a feeling of peace and trust.  Since it is the color of both the sea and sky, Feng Shui experts associate it with adventure and exploration.  Among the different shades of blue, navy blue is the color that best describes intellect and wisdom.

Black:  Black symbolizes money and income.  It is great for those who are focusing on their careers, especially when this color is combined with metal.  In Feng Shui, it is the color of emotional protection and power.

Purple:  In Feng Shui, purple is associated with spiritual awareness, and it is excellent for physical and mental healing.

White:  White represents confidence, poise and purity.  Feng Shui experts use this color in combination with gold and silver as it generates a calm atmosphere.

Green:  Green represents balancing, normalizing, nurturing and refreshing.  It is the color of balance, harmony, healing and health in the emotional, physical and spiritual realms.

Yang colors tend to be fire and wood elements.  It is these colors that provide you with positive energy or enthusiasm and here are the colors.

Yellow:  Yellow represents cheerfulness and friendliness.  However, too much exposure to this color can be negative, as it often leads to anxiety.

Orange:  Orange helps strengthen concentration, especially in times when creativity runs dry.

Lavender:  Lavender is the color of sexual indecision.  Feng Shui experts believe this color suggests an ability to be manipulated, and should be avoided.

Maroon:  Maroon is one of the shades of red.  In Feng Shui, this represents  indecisiveness, and is best avoided.

Although not classified as Yin or Yang, the earth element should be represented.  Brown or tan represents the color of the earth.  It portrays neatness and helps conceal emotion.

There are other colors, aside from those mentioned above, which represent Yin and Yang in Feng Shui.  If you want to know more about colors in Feng Shui, a little research online or in books will prove educational.  Colors should be used in combination with different Feng Shui elements (earth, water, fire, wind and metal) in order to balance the Chi, or energy, within your sacred space.

Each of the colors above represents one of the Feng Shui elements and by making sure there is balance, you will be able to bring prosperity wherever needed within your home or business.  For example, if you want balance in the restroom, avoid the color black as there is enough water already there, and so doing would result in imbalance.

The wonderful colors of Feng Shui can be used to your advantage depending upon the needed energy flow.  For you to achieve prosperity, you should bring them into your home or office not only in the colors of the wall but also the furniture and decor as well.
