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.
Grey: Helpful people -- these people can be friends, family, etc.
Blue: Knowledge and spirituality.
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.
