How and why to choose the right Feng Shui Colours to energize and enhance your home and work space
The five-element theory is super important in Feng Shui as the colours of the productive / creative cycle that represent each of the five elements show you how to use this knowledge to enhance your good luck
In Feng Shui, there are eight directions
North, South, East, West, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and Southwest and each direction is represented – or governed – by one of the five elements
The five elements - water, wood, fire, earth and metal
WATER blue or black
WOOD green or brown
METAL white or gold
The productive or creative cycle of the five elements is the key that unlocks the enhancing technique of Feng Shui
How to activate a specific corner of your house, office, room or work building
Take note of the element of the corner that you wish to activate or enhance based on its compass direction
1: Activate SOUTH - Recognition and Fame luck
The element of SOUTH is FIRE
Check the element that produces FIRE (which is WOOD whose colours are green or brown)
You then use the colour of the producing element wood (green or brown) in the SOUTH
2: Activate SOUTHEAST - Wealth
Note that the element of this direction is WOOD. To produce wood you will need water. So anything blue or black will activate this corner
You can use these colours in your fabrics, decorative cushions, paint and furniture
3: Activate SOUTHWEST - Relationships and Romance
The element of the SOUTHWEST is ruled by EARTH so use more RED to activate happier partnerships, romance and relationships.
4: Activate NORTH - Career Luck
We know that NORTH represents WATER and that METAL produces water. Therefore we would place something metallic, such as gold or white in the north to activate the WATER element.
5: Activate NORTHEAST - Education Luck, Clarity & Better Decisions
The element of the Northeast is EARTH so use more FIRE AND RED to activate optimism, powers of concentration and educational opportunities
6: Activate NORTHWEST - Travel and Helpful People
The element of the NORTHWEST is METAL and to enhance good metal energy, you can use EARTH colors such as brown, yellow or pink shades.
7: Activate EAST - Family and Health
The element of EAST is WOOD. WATER activates wood so you can use tones and shades of blue and black to activate happy, healthy family relationships
8: Activate WEST - Creativity and Children
The WEST is ruled by METAL. To activate auspicious energy in the WEST, use the EARTH colours of brown, yellow or pink shades.
