Colour therapy in Feng Shui

Feng Shui Tip: Use of colour in Feng Shui 

The theory of five elements is the basis of Feng Shui. These five elements are: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. We use these five elements all the time when we apply Feng Shui in our homes. Each of these elements have certain attributes which influence the different sectors of the compass. These elements also have a certain relationship with each other. This relationship can be either productive, exhaustive or destructive. When we apply Feng Shui, we keep these relationships in mind and usually use the productive cycle if we want to enhance a certain direction, and we use the exhaustive or destructive cycle when we want to subdue a negative element. 

Each element has a colour representing it. For example, the element of Water is represented by the colour blue or black, Fire element is associated with the colour red, Wood element is associated with shades of green and brown, Earth element is associated with yellow and brown, and the Metal element is represented by white, gold, silver etc. 

Once we know the different colours associated with each element, we can use those colours to enhance different sectors, along with the five elements. Let’s have a look at the different directions and their related colours. 

North – Blue and Black

North East – Yellow and Brown

East – Green and Brown

South East – Green and Brown

South – Red

South West – Yellow and Brown

West – White, Gold and Silver

North West – White, Gold and Silver

As you go deeper and get a better understanding of the different cycles, you will be able to use a combination of colours for each direction based on the productive, exhaustive and destructive cycle. 

I will cover the different combinations of colours in my next post. Until then, happy reading. 

Have a wonderful day.
