This article teaches you how to use Feng Shui colors and directions to improve your life. The point is that by positioning the furniture in your living spaces in different directions, you can provoke different types of energies and the same goes out for the colors.
What has to be taken into account is that direction is always a relative type of thing in a sense that when if we go on to travel all the way east, we will eventually end up at somewhere in the west where we started at. The same thing goes out if you travel south and north. If we examine its history, Feng Shui has been developing in a quite localized manner, meaning that for the most part you need a center of reference. Once you have a center of reference, the actual scale of motion is relative to this center.
According to Feng Shui colors and directions, every person has their own set of favorable and unfavorable directions for work, study, sleeping and other activities. At each particular moment, every person is aligned with one of the eight possible directions but only four of them can be beneficial. There is a special Birth Year and Trigram Chart that shows your best directions depending on the year you were born, so make sure you look up that calendar online.
With this chart you will be able to find your Trigram and using this Trigram you will be able to find the best directions for you as well as the bad ones that should be avoided. Using your Trigram, you will find your A, B, C, and D directions, all the way down to your H direction. The idea is that you should place your back to match your A direction to get support from it and sleep with your head pointing at your D direction. Basically, the directions from A to D are good for you, while the directions from E through H should be avoided.
Colors are another crucial feature of feng shui. As per the feng shui rules, by carefully picking the colors in the rooms you inhibit, you can switch energy to your good directions. There are five different feng shui elements – earth, fire, water, metal, and wood, and each of these elements is expressed with a particular color. Depending on the energy map of your home or office and based on the type of energy you want to bring into that space, one or a combination of these Feng Shui elements must be positioned in a specific area. If you are successful at picking the right Feng Shui colors and directions, you will be able to create a truly harmonious atmosphere.
Basically, different colors should be used for the different rooms in your home or office. It's regarded that the yin colors stimulate a more relaxing mood and generally create a healing environment. Some of these yin colors produce both mental and physical healing while few of them representing protection and wisdom. Some of the yin colors are blue, black, white, pink, and green.
