Feng Shui is an old Chinese practice that helps you to harmonize your energy with your home’s energy.
The quality of Feng Shui energy in your home mainly depends on the strength of the feng shui energy that is allowed to enter through the front door of your home to the energy within your bedroom, your kitchen and your bathroom of your home. All of these areas should have a strong Feng Shui foundation. The way to do that is to arrange your rooms and to color your rooms in the proper way so you can maintain your home’s energy. Feng Shui helps guide that energy so it can flow freely throughout your home.
For example, the front door of your home is called “the mouth of Chi” in Feng Shui, and this is how your home absorbs its “Chi”, or energy. When a home has good “Chi” or energy, the people living in the home will experience heightened levels of well-being. A good Feng Shui house has the main entry designed to welcome, strengthen and channel the incoming Feng Shui energy throughout the entire home.
Colors are very important when it comes to Feng Shui. The right Feng Shui use of colors can do wonders for your home. We all respond to color in predictable ways. Feng Shui takes the use of color to the next level, where each color brings the desired Feng Shui energies to your home in order to create harmony and balance.
For example, the color red carries the energy of fire into your home. Fire has always been a symbol of divine energy and can be both destructive and creative. Fire represents the energy of sun and life. A balanced Feng Shui fire element in your home will bring joy, excitement and strong sexual desire.
On the other hand, the color blue is considered the color that brings the energy of calm, peace and healing into your home. Light blue is considered the Feng Shui color of harmonious expansion and gentle growth, while darker blue evokes the Feng Shui energy of deep calm, wisdom and serenity. Depending on your Feng Shui priorities, you might want to introduce some deep blue elements into your bedroom to promote better sleep or introduce some gentle playful aqua into the living room, especially if you have a big and busy family.
Then there is green and green is the Feng Shui color of renewal, fresh energy and new beginnings. The color green is very nourishing to your health, as it will help calm your nerves and balance your whole body by bringing healing Feng Shui vibrations from Mother Nature. Different shades of green will help create a good Feng Shui house with its healing effects. From fresh spring color green of a newly opened leaf to the strong green color of a mighty oak tree, green will refresh and rejuvenate your energy, as well as the energy of your home.
Then there is the color yellow. The color yellow will wake up any room like the rising sun. The Feng Shui color of sunlight will always lighten and brighten a home and make it feel very welcoming. Yellow is a great Feng Shui color for a child’s room.
So, when it comes to Feng Shui, you have to trust your senses and go at your own pace. After all, it is your home, and it is best to feel empowered and strong when you make any changes in your home. That in itself is good Feng Shui!
