Colors and Feng Shui

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of creating environments that nurture your well-being. The main idea behind Feng Shui is that the specific placement of objects within a space can harness the power of the earth's invisible energy force, known as ch'i.

This placement theory is guided by a map, called the Bagua, that is divided into nine sections. Each section represents a different aspect of life (career, family, wealth, etc.) and is manifested by a specific color.

Red: Fame and reputation.

Pink: Relationship.

White: Children.

Grey: Helpful people -- these people can be friends, family, etc.

Black: Career.

Blue: Knowledge and spirituality.

Green: Family.

Purple: Wealth.

Yellow: Health.

If there's an area of life that you're trying to improve, Feng Shui theorists suggest you find the corresponding Bagua color and add an element of it to your clothing.
